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!

I was referred to Monique by a close friend of mine so I already knew when I got engaged, Monique was going to be my day of girl! The whole time she was very professional, but still knew how to make me relax and laugh. I hired Monique as a day of coordinator and I am so happy I went with her. When it came to my wedding day, I didn't have to worry about anything. Everything was taken care of and was perfect by the time I walked down the isle. Every event went smoothly and on time and I even had time to enjoy my actual reception and dance with all my guests (which I think a lot of couples don't get to do on their wedding day!) I would refer Monique to any bride to be looking for day of, or full service! I have also gained a great friend in the process :)

Monique was the best decision we made for our wedding day! She thought of so meany things we had forgotten about and she saved the day. If it wasn't for her my guests would not of had silverware to eat with. When she realized we had non there were no questions asked, she was out the door and to the rental company to pick them up! My mother was able to relax and enjoy the day knowing Monique had it all handled. When brides ask me what my #1 recommendation is, I tell them to hire Monique. You will be very happy and a lot more calm knowing she is there to make your day amazing!

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!
