Nothing short of amazing!
My experience from the very start with Fitsum-ISM was amazing. I immediately was connected with Bryn, who made my experience nothing short of amazing. She was extremely responsive and had such an expansive and intuitive knowledge of what a beautiful and organized wedding day should be. I thought I was all planned out, but she brought forward details I would never have thought about. She maintained consistent contact with my vendors, and ensured that I had nothing to worry about. On the day-of, Bryn took the lead and made sure that I did not have stress about ANYTHING - I was able to focus just on preparing and enjoying my day, which is exactly what I was looking for. I recommend Bryn and Fitsum-ISM whole-heartedly and couldn't have seen my day go any more perfectly than she helped execute.Sent on 01/15/2020

An amazing person
From discussions for what we had to do to all the help the day of, Fitsum exceeded all expectations for a coordinator. She worked with us for everything we had planned, kept the wedding party on track, and kept in touch with all the vendors to ensure everything was on track for the day. The level of organization she has is spectacular, and will greatly reduce the amount of stress you might have for the big day. When going through the details of the wedding, she will find the questions and points that you did not even consider. All this is combined in a person who is an absolute delight to work with. If you put your trust in her with your wedding, she will make it one you will love and remember for the rest of your life.Sent on 10/31/2019

Would recommend to anyone
Bryn did an amazing job as our DoC! Her attention to detail right from the planning stages all the way through to the big day was impeccable. It was so easy to enjoy our day knowing she was handling set-up, break down, and everything in between. We had family members on hand to help if needed but they said "Bryn was on top of it" and had it all covered. I would definitely recommend this service to anyone and say you'll be in good hands with her.Sent on 10/29/2019

Wonderful Experience and Wedding Planning Team!!
My now husband and I hired Fitsum and Fitum-ISM to day/month of coordinate our wedding, and the rehearsal and wedding day went without a hitch! Our vendors let us know they enjoyed working with Fitsum, and she stayed calm and collected the entire weekend. She was very organized and thorough, and did a great job keeping everyone on schedule.
Our families both enjoyed working with her on the day, and she did a great job decorating the venue perfectly. We loved all our vendors, but Fitsum was the cherry on top of a great wedding crew!
We also worked with Bryn for our initial walk through, and she was so wonderful to have with us as well.
These ladies are the real deal, I would recommend them for any of your event needs! They went above and beyond to accommodate our needs and we are so thankful they were our coordination team.Sent on 11/11/2019

Fitsum is AMAZING -- Can't go wrong
We are so thankful that we were able to hire Fitsum for our day-of coordination. She met with us three times before the wedding for a venue walk-through, and then twice for consultation services prior to the wedding. She helped us to make sure that everything was planned for our wedding day and had us create a plan for things we overlooked to make sure we didn't miss anything. On the day-of, she was flexible enough to get there a couple hours earlier than originally planned to help us with a ceremony walk-through, helped my husband with his bow-tie (another skill she now has!), and was everywhere making sure all the small details were taken care of. Simply put, you need to her. Oh, and she's also just a wonderful person. Thanks, Fitsum!Sent on 09/25/2019

Hire Fitsum. She is the best!
Hiring Fitsum was the best money we spent when planning our wedding! Not only was she an absolute pleasure to spend time with - meetings felt more like catching up with a friend than a meeting - her attention to detail was absolute perfection. She really listened to us, and took on all the hard parts like dealing with other vendors (even when they were difficult to handle), setting timelines and handling the day-of so seamlessly we were able to just enjoy ourselves and never think about all the moving pieces. In short, we love Fitsum and would recommend her to everyone!Sent on 10/21/2019

Bryn is amazing!
We had the honor of working with Bryn, we knew we would get along with her just fine because of similarities to us. She is organized, asks the right questions, and totally on top of everything. She will answer her phone day in and day out (mind you she has a little one at home as well). Any admin changes last minute, she always delivers promptly.
What I like about her most is she’s also not passive aggressive, she’s extremely nice and directive which is what we like. She’s not afraid to take charge. The little things during the wedding planning such as - holding our pictures, finding us envelopes, staying per the timeline, getting our bridal party of 21 people together, communicating with vendors for us (this is my favorite), and bearing all things to ensure we are happy.
I would recommend her all the way - she’s professional and such a joy to work with. Thanks Bryn!Sent on 08/27/2019

Wow Wow.... Just Wow
Fitsum is a miracle worker. My husband and I hired Fitsum as our day-of-coordinator and we are so so so happy we did. She was easy to work with, listened and was very attentive to every details of our wedding. Boy, I am a very particular person and despite that she went above and beyond to make sure that all our expectations were met and then some. I don't know where she hides her magic wand because I could swear that she is a magician. If I am still in Seattle and we are planning our wedding anniversary ceremony, I will hire her again; heck, I might even fly her over!Sent on 06/29/2019

Fitsum was incredible to work with and hubby and I are so glad we hired her. She and her team made the day run so much smoother than it otherwise would have. Large or small, every wedding would benefit from a coordinator. She helped wrangle family members, hustled up and down a 5-min trail at our venue multiple times and kept us organized. She even worked some magic to fix an issue with another vendor only a couple days before the wedding. I can't imagine how the day would have gone if she and her assistant Michelle weren't there. They managed any hiccups gracefully and exuded enthusiasm and cheerfulness throughout the day. THANK YOU, FITSUM, for helping to make our wedding so special.Sent on 07/12/2019

Impeccable Coordination - DJ Review
Bryn and Michelle of Fitsum-ISM Event Management handled last minute changes, unexpected challenges and made managing a big wedding in a multi-level indoor-outdoor event space look like a breeze! How lucky was I that on top of this, they were on top of cueing me for music for the processional and tag-teaming the dinner announcements and mic hand-offs during toasts? They were a DREAM to work with from this vendor's perspective! I would be ecstatic to see them on the vendor list of any of the future events that I work.Sent on 06/26/2019

We hired Fitsum-ISM to be the day of coordinator of our wedding. Fitsum, Bryn, and Michelle were great to work with! They really went above and beyond to take the time to understand our goals for the wedding. They did a great job of coordinating with all of our vendors and getting everyone on the same page. The execution on the day of the wedding was pretty much flawless. Highly recommended!Sent on 07/29/2019

The Best Thing We Spent Our Money On!
I canNOT recommend the ladies at Fitsum-ism enough!!!!! Seriously, out of everything we spent our money on for our wedding, hiring them was the best decision we made. I definitely always recommend them to everyone I know who is getting married.Sent on 10/20/2019
My first meeting was with Fitsum herself. She was kind and caring. She made sure to let us know what her services included and what to expect.
Some time down the road, I was introduced to Bryn, one of Fitsum’s coordinators. I was a little apprehensive at first because we knew Fitsum from my cousin’s wedding (she was their coordinator) and wasn’t sure about trusting someone else.
Boy, was I impressed. Bryn is THEE MOST thoughtful, amazing, and organized person EVER! She thought about details regarding the wedding that I wouldn’t have ever thought about. She took the time to listen to my concerns and battle any problems from vendors for me. I honestly had no cares at the wedding because she took care of everything!
We had a few cultural elements to our reception that Bryn wasn’t experienced in, but that didn’t stop her from asking all the right questions and even coming up with solutions to ease each part of the reception without it being too choppy.
Bryn and Michelle (another coordinator from Fitsum-ISM we were blessed to work with) took care of making sure decor was set up and taken down. They took care of my dad’s surprise father/daughter dance karaoke slideshow and even a mother/son song change in the middle of the reception!
Truly cannot thank them enough. I don’t think I would’ve been able to enjoy our wedding without leaving all the working parts to these wonderful ladies’ hands!

Couldn’t have done it without them!!!
Hiring Fitsum and Bryn as our day of coordinators was one of the best decisions we made. If anything went wrong on my wedding day, no one told me! They both kept everything on track, were so organized, made sure we ate! Haha! They made our wedding day the perfect relaxing day and took care of absolutely every little stressful detail in the background. My only regret is not getting at least one picture with Fitsum and Bryn! Thank you thank you thank you both!!Sent on 05/08/2019

Fitsum did an AMAZING job at every aspect of our wedding. She made sure everyone stayed on schedule and that everyone was in the correct place and even helped us with set up/clean up. She is extremely organized and professional. She helped make sure all of our vendors were on the same page. My husband and I were extremely happy with her services and communication and we happily recommend her to anyone else seeking a day of coordinator. Our day simply wouldn't have been the same without Fitsum.Sent on 10/30/2018

Fitsum was the day of coordinator for my wedding, and she was the most organized, non-judgemental (haha we all have moments), and helpful planner, EVER. She is professional but very fun to work with. We laughed so much together while getting everything checked off my list. I am so lucky that she was there for my wedding - otherwise it would have been impossible.Sent on 09/23/2018

All I can say is without Fitum’s help our wedding wouldn’t have been as organized and smooth as it was. As a day-of-wedding coordinator she followed up with all of our vendors (a LOT of vendors) to set expectations and ensure everyone was on the same page. On our wedding day she made critical decisions on behalf of us & stepped in and helped vendors work out unexpected issues they had. Fitum is always on time, professional and Executes plans to the T! We couldn’t be happier with the Value she added to the whole process. Fitsum greatly exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend her services.Sent on 09/26/2018

Fitsum will not disappoint you, if you are looking for someone who is organized, intelligent, professional and great at getting things done! She is also a great communicator, which helps tremendously. We were both so pleased with her services, and would recommend her to anyone for Day of Coordination, or any other related services.Sent on 09/21/2018

Words cannot express our gratitude for Fitsum. The wedding was something that has truly exceeded both my bride and I’s expectations! It was the PERFECT wedding and it's all because of her.
I came to Fitsum with the idea that she’d make all of the day’s events merge seamlessly together and to allow us to enjoy the night, and she’s worked her magic and brought it to life. Everything from going above and beyond in setting up meetings beforehand weeks in advance, to meeting up with our decorator to better understand the layout we’ve chosen, to following up and coordinating with vendors, to setting up the favors table and last minute details of the hall, to buying extra items that were needed, to coordinating the sparkler exit, to setting up the after party, and much more! If you think you don't need a wedding coordinator, think again because choosing her was easily the best decision we’ve made, and if you think you can go with just any one THINK AGAIN!Sent on 11/29/2017

A+ day-of-coordinator! Thankful for Fitsum and her team for making our wedding day seamless and everything we envisioned. She is professional, thoughtful, organized, and kept our rowdy wedding party in check! Not only did she take our vision and make it come to life, but she thought of the details I didn't (and I was pretty OCD organized)....who forgets the cake cutting utensils.....this bride did, and she saved the day!!! I would, and have recommended her and her team to those looking for a great day-of-coordinator.
