Tresa is family now!
Tresa was such an absolute JOY in every way. I honestly don't know how she is so amazing at what she does! Everything was done effortlessly! We had a last minute change due to weather and she handled it like the total professional she is. She always kept our interests in mind and was unbelievably flexible. We adore her in every way.Sent on 10/03/2019

Even with the weather move to inside, wasn't it just so gorgeous??? I'm still on cloud nine for you and your guests. And...oh...the food! Holy moly! Love you two.

I could not have made my wedding day flow as smoothly as it did without Nicole and Tresa! They made sure everything was seamless as possible and allowed me to just enjoy the day! Worth every penny. I highly recommend them!Sent on 07/09/2019
Always and Forever Weddings's reply:Oh Marli! Thank you for this! We can't tell you how much we loved getting to know you while we planned your beautiful day! You were a joy to work with from beginning to end. Despite the rain, rain, rain, on your big day, it was gorgeous!! Thanks for allowing us to be part of it and happily ever after to both of you!

Tresa is a gamechanger!
Working with Tresa was nothing short of spectacular. My wife and I live in Chicago and chose to get married at the beautiful Garden of the Gods Club & Resort. As we started digging into the planning, I hit us like a ton of bricks that we didn't know a whole lot about wedding planning (...enters Tresa).Sent on 04/25/2019
We reached out to Tresa to be our day of coordinator to help us ensure that everything ran smoothly at the resort, manage our other vendors, and ensure things went as planned on the day for our family, guests and wedding party.
Hiring Tresa was the best decision we made in our wedding planning process. She stepped in right away with recommendations, organized schedules, and a sense of calmness that put us at ease. On the day of the wedding, we truly did not worry about a thing, Tresa executed the wedding flawlessly--from set-up, to meeting with vendors, to keeping everyone on schedule, and everything else.
We can't wait for our next visit to Colorado Springs to visit with Tresa who we now consider one of our friends. Thank you for all you did from us Tresa. :)

My fiance (now husband) and I were planning our entire wedding ourselves, and the closer we got to the month of our wedding, the more we realized we were entirely in over our heads. That's when we decided to reach out to Tresa- that decision made more of a difference for our wedding than we ever could have imagined. Tresa was professional, timely, friendly, incredibly helpful, organized, detailed, knowledgeable, experienced- I could go on for hours. She asked questions we never would've thought to ask, listened to what our vision was, and made it happen seamlessly. On the day of, any time an issue seemed to be arising (as they always do on a wedding day), Tresa handled it before anyone else could even begin to feel an ounce of stress- and I can't describe how thankful I was to feel that sense of comfort on my wedding day. We are so incredibly grateful and beyond impressed. I HIGHLY recommend!!Sent on 09/26/2018
Always and Forever Weddings's reply:Heather, oh my goodness, thank you so much for taking the time to do this and for your kind words. I was thrilled when you and David found and reached out to me and then allowed me to be a part of your big day. It was absolutely beautiful! I am glad that we were able to put you at ease on your wedding day so you could relax and enjoy, as that was our job - to ease your worry. Your impeccable taste and planning made my job easier and we also had a ton of fun watching the day unfold. It was truly enjoyed by everyone. I wish you both the best life has to offer and then some.

TRESA IS AMAZING. She made our wedding day perfect. Throughout the year of working with Tresa, she constantly kept us involved, worked with my busy schedule, and made our dreams come true. On the day of our wedding it decided to rain and she moved EVERYTHING and everyone inside within minutes. She made sure all the vendors arrived on time, and made my dreams of decoration come true. She was such a help throughout the year because i was so busy, and handled so many issues for us. We are SO lucky to have had her help us plan the wedding. I recommend her to everyone who wants to plan a wedding, she takes the stress right out of it!Sent on 08/13/2018
Always and Forever Weddings's reply:Oh Maria! Thank you for your kind words! I miss you already. We had such fun planning your big day, didn't we? Even though it rained right when ceremony began, I think it was a downpour of love ~ buckets of love! Thank you for finding and choosing me to be part of yours and Billy's union. I had the time of my life and I wish you both only happy days and sunshine in your life together. God bless you both.

As a father of the bride I found Tresa to be knowledgeable, professional and responsive. Her connections to vendors saved us time, effort and expense. Her experience translated into a very smooth and wonderful experience. She demonstrated exceptional problem solving skills, freeing up our time to enjoy the experience without the last minute stress associated with having 150 family and friends joining us for this wonderful event. I would strongly recommend her. She is wonderful.Sent on 08/08/2018
Always and Forever Weddings's reply:Thank you for your kind words, Larry. Helping plan and orchestrate Jenny and Kate's wedding was pure joy. They are two of the kindest people I've met and you should be so proud. Their wedding is right up there in my all-time favorites and I have re-watched the video I took of everyone dancing to Neil Diamond over and over, always with a smile. Incredible night!
Kate · Married on 07/07/2018
I could not have asked for a better person to work with. Tresa is incredibly knowledgeable and answered every single questions we asked her right away. She helped us in the year leading up to our wedding and then totally took over when the weekend arrived. I didn't worry about a single thing on the day of my wedding-once Tresa knew about it, there was no question that it would get done right. She helped us figure out logistical details and also made us feel calm and confident that everything was going to work out. She was the best investment we made in our wedding--I seriously cannot recommend her enough!Sent on 08/09/2018
Always and Forever Weddings's reply:Thank you for this, Kate. I absolutely adore you and Jenny and had the time of my life working with you and your families in planning your beautiful union. You both come from families that are truly pure gold and it shows through each of you. Thank you for finding me and giving me the opportunity to be part of something that went right to my heart and will always make me smile. God bless you both.

Tresa is more than my wedding planner. She became a friend over the course of the year that we worked together and a person I could reach out to about wedding etiquette, family drama and life. She is worth every penny and so much more. I felt such a bond with her that it made our wedding day a smooth and fun day. I knew that I could count on her in every aspect of the planning and our big day. She did not fail to meet expectations, in fact she exceeded them every single time. She went out of her way to collect RSVP's, create spreadsheets of our budget, attended every meeting with every vendor and searched high and low for the most perfect officiant. I mean the list could go on of all of the things that she did that made it stress free. If you are contemplating hiring her, contemplate no more. You cannot go wrong with Tresa! Love you!Sent on 12/09/2017

Finding Tresa was the first step to achieving the wedding of our dreams. She helped us through every step of the process. For instance, she introduced us to the great vendors she had worked with in the past, dealt with the communication between such vendors and she even made all of the arrangements for payment. Not only did she introduce us to great vendors, but she allowed us to have all of the necessary information in order to make the right call for us. Additionally, she took care of many of the small wedding details we would have never thought of on our own. When it finally came to the wedding day, Tresa was invaluable. She saved me a lot of stress, as I knew that all of our vendors were reliable and she was in charge of setting up and making sure the timing was exactly right. Because of Tresa, the only thing I had to worry about was getting ready. Overall, Tresa had amazing quality of service, she was always quick, and responsive to our needs and wants, she was quite professional, her guidance was worth every penny and she was very accommodating. Not only will you see all of these great characteristics if you hire Tresa, but she also has an indefinable quality that makes her so much fun to work with and you can tell that she really cares about making your day absolutely perfect and in line with your vision.Sent on 12/06/2017

I can’t say enough about the excellent service I received. Hiring Always and Forever was the best wedding decision I made. Tresa was so patient, personable, knowledgeable and organized. Her connections with people in the wedding world was extremely helpful. She made my wedding day perfect.Sent on 12/13/2017

Tresa was terrific! She is just the sweetest lady and made planning my wedding a breeze! She has good working relationships with so many vendors, that she was able to get us a discount with multiple vendors. Due to the discounts she was able to get us, it basically offset the cost we paid her for her own services. And then when it came to doing all the in between with all the vendors she took care of all of it! Even when we ran into an issue with our dj. He left the company he was working for, but our contract was with the company not him. Tresa was able to get us to keep the same dj without loosing money, even though the original company was unwilling to refund our deposit. Then come day of and she took care of everything and kept the whole day running smoothly. She took all of the decorations that I had made and displayed them exactly as I wanted and everything looked so beautifully. She really did a terrific job! And because she is so sweet, it felt more like she was another memeber of the family rather than someone who HAD to be there. I just adore her and would highly recommend her to anyone who needs help getting everything together and wants their wedding day to go off without a hitch!Sent on 12/04/2017
