Dawn is incredible
We hired Dawn for full planning and she brought incredible value throughout the planning process and on our wedding day. As an added bonus, she is a wonderful person and an exceptional artist!
Our wedding was at a DYI space so we knew we needed a day of coordinator. Before we met Dawn, we booked our caterer whose captain offered to be our DOC free of charge. For sometime we considered using the captain but decided to meet with Dawn whose information I received through a wedding event I went to.
When we met with Dawn we knew we needed to hire her right away as a wedding gift to ourselves. Dawn delivered every step of the way and saved us a ton of money!
What we loved most about Dawn, is that she took the time to understand our needs and our individual priorities. With this, she helped us focus our energy and budget on what really mattered to us. She always came through with fantastic recommendations even when we continued to change our minds. And she never once gave us a hard time when on several occasions we met and discussed what we wanted, she sent ideas or recommendations, and then we completely changed our minds. My husband and I can be difficult, type A, and incapable of handing things off and she handled it all with ease and professionalism.
I could go on and on and on about how thrilled we are that we hired Dawn, but I think two examples sum it up best. First, is that Dawn has an incredible patience and ability to work with people. Our caterer, who is a family friend, can be incredibly difficult to work with. She handled this personality and countless issues with the utmost professionalism--I wish I could harness this power. We are so grateful for this. Second, is Dawn's value. Dawn went to our venue on the morning of our wedding very early to set up. While she was there a pipe burst and water started leaking on the floor. Because she was there so early she was able to contact the venue and have the pipe fixed and the water cleaned up before the ceremony. Had Dawn not been there, the first person to arrive would have been catering, which was 3 hours later...the pipe never would have been fixed on time.
Thanks Dawn! We love you!

Top-Tier Wedding Planner
Skylar Arden Events and Design did an incredible job managing every aspect of our wedding. The team was responsive, professional and flexible. My husband and I both have previous professional event planning experience, so our expectations were high. They exceeded our expectations and we were able to enjoy the time leading up to our wedding, instead of stressing over the little details. We can’t say enough about how good our experience was.

I wasn't totally sure I wanted to hire a planner because I had booked all the big stuff - DJ, Venue, Florist, Officiant, etc. and wasn't sure if I could afford or wanted to spend additional money on a planner for the month of. Now, after the fact, I honestly don't know what I would have done without Dawn, she was worth every penny. Dawn was amazing. She was so flexible and always came to me, was very easy to talk to and understood my vision for the day, and she took on all of the little nitty gritty tasks the month and weeks leading up to the big day that I didn't have time or energy to focus on. She was also SO helpful on the day of the wedding and helping to set up the venue and the flowers and arrange all of the other elements. When I walked in, I didn't really know what to expect but she made it look beyond what I could have imagined and it felt so warm, inviting, and intimate - exactly what I was hoping for. Chris her assistant is also the most cheerful guy and always has a smile on his face. They are a great team! If you are still deciding to hire a planner and aren't sure what to do, I definitely recommend it so you can focus on your big day and soak up every moment and you cannot go wrong with Dawn & Chris.
Very rarely do we work with another vendor that does such amazing work that we have to write a review, working with Dawn was such an amazing and fun experience. She has such a creative vision and thinks completely outside the box, offering clients a completely unique event. She was incredibly outgoing and fun, organized and had the most amazing attention to detail. We cannot wait to work with you again!!!!!!!!!
