    Wedding Bliss Made Possible by Risa

    When I booked Risa for a day-of-coordinator for my wedding in late July I was expecting someone who just works the day of the wedding but that was not the case with Risa. I was immediately impressed by the amount of time she dedicated to make my day special months in advance. She was extremely flexible and willing to work with our schedules and needs in a kind, thoughtful, and professional manner. Risa brought things to my attention that without her I would have completely overlooked and would have made my wedding 10 times more stressful. On the actually day of the event I didn't have to worry about one single thing because Risa was there to manage everything. From decor set-up, contacting vendors, organizing guest arrival, managing our first look and so much more my day was so enjoyable because I didn't have to worry about one single thing. She even went as far as gathered up all of my belongings at the end of the night, boxed them all up, and placed them in a safe location for me to grab the next day. If anyone is on the fence about hiring Risa I would say no doubt this was the best decision I ever made while planning the wedding. I would easily recommend her to anyone and guarantee that they would not be disappointed in their choice to work with Risa. I cannot thank her enough for all the work that she did to ensure that my wedding was magical and stress-free and that was all made possible by Risa.

    Thank you SO much, Stephanie! It was such a joy to work with you and Mark over the past few months. I'm thrilled that you had a magical wedding day, and I hope the rest of your married life is just as magical!
