I can't say enough positive things about Sonia at XOXO Bride. We hired her as a day-of coordinator, but she started helping us months before the big day. She did everything from recommend outstanding vendors to reassure my nervous mother. On the day, she really blew us away. We did not have to worry about anything and everything looked absolutely beautiful. She even wrangled my wild dog! Her and her team went above and beyond to make sure that we enjoyed our day completely stress free. If you're looking for a coordinator with impeccable taste, a positive attitude and a calming presence, then Sonia is your lady!

Saralee at XOXO Bride went above and beyond listening to our unconventional wishes, and found us vendors and a venue that would best fit with our tastes for our special day. Everything was perfect. When there was an issue with the venue after the reception, she went above and beyond her job description and made sure that both parties were satisfied with the outcome. We would recommend her to our friends and family for sure.

I don't know where to begin about Sonia and XOXO Bride. She had me at hello! Our first conversation was perfection - she totally "got" the vision and the vibe that my husband and I had for our wedding and she never ceased to amaze us with her spirit, professionalism and attention to detail throughout the entire process. I adore Sonia! She is not only a fabulous wedding planner, but a special person as well. She exudes warmth, kindness and professionalism with all that she does. She is extremely responsive, organized and detailed about everything...and is a total delight to work with. Sonia helped bring our vision to life, creating a magical and unforgettable weekend from start to finish. I would HIGHLY recommend Sonia to plan anyone's wedding or special event. She is a star in every way!
