We hired Monique for our day of coordinator. She came highly recommended and surpassed our expectations. Our ceremony was a traditional Jewish ceremony at a temple, then she set up at our reception venue. She made everything flow seamlessly. We had zero stress. Everyone loved her. She worked well with other vendors who she just met! Her demeanor was calm and assertive! And she also really enjoyed our joy. She even managed to easily put away items without disrupting the reception!! I highly recommend her!!Sent on 05/18/2019

Flawless & painless
If there was any major hiccup that happened during our wedding, I have no clue about it thanks to Monique!
Technically, we only got Monique as our day-of coordinator, but with the amount of emails we exchanged it didn't feel like it. It felt like she went above and beyond, getting to know us and making herself available - both for logistics & just as a friendly ear to vent to about drama. I couldn't be more thankful that she's so amazing and lovely to work with that she's listed as a preferred vendor with the Aquarium of the Pacific (which is how we heard about her).
She's super fun and easy to work with. Our venue was set up in a timely manner, and everything looked amazing! As an artist & a designer, I made my own centerpieces, but I left it to Monique & her team to put the finishing touches and set everything up. I was so happy with how they set up the centerpieces as aisle runners for the ceremony, and later as actual centerpieces during the reception.
My now-husband and I will forever be grateful for how much she helped during the most chaotic moments. Namely, the rehearsal dinner, and gathering everything we had to take home after the wedding. We definitely didn't have the energy to keep track of everything, so it was so nice to be able to just put our trust in her and know she wouldn't let us down.
The most amazing thing about Monique, and what makes her so effective is that she was calm and steady in the face of whatever comes up during the wedding (and before getting there). She is exactly what both me and my husband needed for our wedding coordinator.Sent on 06/22/2019

The decision to hire Monique as our wedding coordinator was the best decision across all our wedding vendors. She is extremely organized and on top of things, not to mention nice, personable and professional. I started looking for coordinators about four months before our wedding and talked to a few, and she seemed most down to earth - others seemed to want to run our wedding like a business when it’s, at the end of the day, a very personal event! She was also the only one willing to travel to wherever I was for an initial meeting, and had practical, helpful advice about the wedding even before I hired her! Even though she presents herself as a “Week of Coordinator” she was involved and accessible throughout the entire process, sending tips and checking in along the way. She even initiated a meeting with our venue on her own time. She has a ton of knowledge and experience and knew how to ask the right questions and offered great suggestions and ideas. Also important to note: not all coordinators are willing to stay all the way to the end of the event. She was the first one to arrive and the last to leave! Very important because by the end of the night, there’ll be a lot going on and you’ll be too tired to think straight, so you need someone there to help tie up the loose ends! Bonus (something I didn’t even think about): you need a coordinator who is a bit artistic and crafty to help set up decor and carry out your vision when you have a vision, or step in with ideas when you don’t. Monique fits the bill perfectly!Sent on 04/29/2018
It was a pleasure working with Monique on a wedding recently. She really understands the importance of the big picture as much as the tiny little details. When an event coordinator can get all the vendors on the same page while keeping the bride, groom, and their guests happy, that is a true professional in every sense!
