If you're thinking about it...DO IT!

Lety and Veronica went above and beyond to make sure that our whole day ran smoothly. Without their help, I cannot imagine the headaches we would have had on our day. Lety offered suggestions throughout the entire process and was there for us during freak out moments / moments we were not clear on direction. When a fire alarm went off during the reception, Veronica worked to keep us calm and ensured us that everything would work out fine. Her reassurance helped us get through the unexpected event. Both Lety and Veronica were assertive yet respectful when things needed to get done, and we cannot thank them enough for everything they did for us on our special day. THANK YOU SO MUCH! We would hire again for any event in the future.

The Event Chicago Review- Wedding

Hands down, the best decision we made during the wedding planning process was hiring Lety for the day of coordinator services! From the very beginning, when she sent us her brochure of info, we knew she was organized, had an eye for styling, and understood the importance of remembering that it is OUR day, not our guests’ ! She was patient, had amazing suggestions, and was overall there every moment of the day to make sure my partner and I were enjoying ourselves! There was an issue with our party bus being 1.5 hrs late and she problem solved so quickly! Veronica, one of her team members was also there for our special day and we LOVED her! Her personality, her energy, was so amazing! She was there to hold my flowers, fix my dress, and have drinks ready for us! My family was hesitant on us having a coordinator, but after it was done, they agreed that they were an amazing team!!! We truly do not think we could have done it all without them both!!! Please hire them!! You will not regret it!!
