We cannot say enough good things about Sarah, Monica, and Paige! We hired them for our day-of coordination and they did a beautiful job. They made the day completely stress-free for me and my husband. They are so much fun to work with and the epitome of professionalism. Sarah and Monica really listen to you and do everything they can to make sure your wedding meets all your expectations. They are incredibly good at what they do. If you are looking for a team to make your wedding day perfect, definitely hire Grand Occasions!Sent on 09/19/2018

We hired Sarah and Monica after they did an amazing job with Day of Coordination for my best friend's wedding. I knew that their attention to detail and upbeat attitudes would ensure my day went off without a hitch, but what I didn't know is that working with them in the several months before my wedding would be one of the most calming aspects of wedding planning. Every email and phone call we had with the GO girls made both my husband and I sigh with relief that such a professional and organized team had our backs and our best interests in mind.
We also hired Sarah to do our floral and I CANNOT say enough amazing things about her work on our ceremony arch, centerpieces, and bouquets. My jaw literally dropped when I saw my bridal bouquet - she had taken all of my Pinterest dreams and somehow merged them together into an arrangement that screamed "me". I get so many compliments on her floral work when people see my wedding photos, and I could NOT have been more pleased with the quality for the price!
I spent a lot of time being nervous about our wedding day being perfect. But the truth is that no amount of planning can guarantee the universe will cooperate with you (hello crazy forecast!). The thing that ended up truly mattering is that we had a team of extremely efficient and caring people that we trusted to handle the unforeseen challenges of the day. Hiring Grand Occasions was absolutely the best money we spent on our wedding, and I believe the biggest reason why I was able to be fully present and enjoy making memories with my family, friends, and husband. If that wasn't good enough, I heard countless stories from families and friends that had exceptional service from GO team members throughout the day, which made our day enjoyable for all. Thank you, Sarah, Monica, and the rest of the GO team!Sent on 08/19/2018

I LOVED planning our wedding. As much as I obsessed over every detail of our vintage-inspired, NYE celebration, I knew I didn't want to worry about a single thing on our wedding day. I also knew that since I was planning from afar, I would need some on-the-ground assistance from people who just got it. Insert Grand Occasions. From our very first conversation, Sarah and Monica made me feel like the world's best bride. They were as giddy as I was for every last detail, and their attention, belly laughs, and excited compliments made them fast friends. On the day of the wedding, Sarah and Monica executed my vision like it was their own. Walking down the isle and then into our reception felt like waking up in a dream. Everything they did - from managing vendors, to flipping our ceremony/reception space in mere minutes, to engaging with guests and cutting pie - was perfect. I know they solved a million little problems that I'll never even know, and they did it all while appearing to have the time of their lives. Sarah and Monica are planners and party people. They're strategists and doers. They're like your best friend and the world's best employee, all wrapped into one perfect package. They're the kind of stress-relieving anomaly you thought didn't exist. Hire them. It will be the very best money you spend on your beautiful day.Sent on 02/13/2017

You will not be disappointed! Sarah, Monica + their team were the best decision I made to have help me with wedding coordination. Their professionalism, talent, and support were what got me through the last month of planning. I am so grateful that they were recommended to me, and had my wedding date available. They are dependable and always available to lend an ear. My day went so perfectly, and I know it is because I had Grand Occasions on my side!Sent on 10/31/2016
Grand Occasions's reply:We are beyond grateful for your beautiful review, Laura! You, your husband, and your family were wonderful to work with and we can't thank you enough for allowing us to be a part of your elegant wedding! Stay in touch!

Monica, Sarah and their team were awesome! As father of the bride, I wanted someone to make my daughters special day as stress free as possible. They came through and then some. They were very concerned about my daughter and making sure everything was just right for her. On the day of, they always were asking how my wife and I were doing and making sure we had everything we needed and made sure we didn't have to worry about anything! These guys are the greatest!Sent on 09/15/2015

Sarah from Grand Occasions was my life saver! As I was planning my Grand Rapids wedding from Arizona, Sarah was my right hand (wo)man. Anything I needed and any questions that I had I asked her and she gave me immediate responses via email and/or phone. She had great advice on how to save money for small things such as decorations and lighting, which goes a long way financially. Without her organization I don't know what if I could have pulled off the rose garden wedding that we had. I would recommend her to anyone that needs help with wedding planning!Sent on 07/21/2015
Grand Occasions's reply:Brenda, this means so much! I can't thank you enough for allowing me to be a part of your special day. Wishing you and Dean all the best!

We chose Grand Occasions to help us with our week-of wedding coordinating and they were truly heaven-sent in all they did for us that week and the weeks leading up to the wedding. They gave great suggestions for vendors in the area, helped keep us on track with our planning process and were willing to meet with us any time we needed to. Monica and Sarah were friendly, fun and an absolute joy to meet with. They began taking over wedding responsibilities about a week and a half before the wedding date and told us not to worry about anything else for the rest of the week. They helped make the whole wedding week go incredibly smoothly and allowed us to enjoy our special day without having to worry about any of the details. I would highly recommend them to any couple wanting to have an organized, fun and hassle-free wedding.Sent on 02/22/2016

Monica and Sarah are amazing! They went above and beyond everything I asked for. Right from the start, they were organized, had a plan and kept things moving along at a quick pace that was NOT stressful. If anything, they were my saving grace when it came to the wedding details and stress involved in the decisions from little to big. I was planning from out of state which put even more work on them, but they didn't hesitate to make runs to the venue, make calls to all my vendors or pick up sparklers from the local store when I needed them to. I don't know what I would have done without them! I would highly recommend them to any bride or anyone else in need of someone for an upcoming event. If you are looking for personable, excited and detail-oriented coordinators, look no further than Grand Occasions!Sent on 01/13/2015

We were blessed to have Grand Occasions at our wedding on October 25th, 2014. I cannot even imagine trying to get through the day without their help! They were available for us the entire day and because of their help, our wedding day was flawless. We knew from the first consultation that we found the perfect team. They listened to all of our ideas and offered timely suggestions and provided valuable insight that we would have overlooked ourselves. They mediated between us and our photographer and our caterer. They relieved so much of the stress and burden along the way. Grand Occasions was available on the day of our wedding from the very beginning, working to make sure all the large items were in place, and to make sure all the fine details were addressed. After all of our conversations with them, they really understood our vision and desires and made it happen! The duo has a professionalism that is unrivaled, but also a friendliness that broke down any ounce of stress we were feeling.Sent on 01/31/2015
We recommend Grand Occasions to anyone looking for a professional and amiable team to take the burden of stress from the entire wedding planning process or even just the pressures of the wedding day. They were more than we could have even anticipated! They helped make our wedding day one to remember for the rest of our lives!
