I would recommend anyone to Alexis in a second! From the moment we met Alexis it was obvious that this wasn't her first rodeo. She was highly organized, efficient, knowledgeable, and gave us great advice whenever we needed recommendations. My husband and I were married at a different location than the reception so the part that we were most nervous about was getting our guests to the cocktail hour on time and being realistic with the schedule. It was unbelievably helpful, and put both our minds at ease, after we met with Alexis to go through the day of schedule. It was easy enough for my husband and I to throw out times we thought would work but we didn't know what was realistic. Alexis planned the timing of our wedding perfectly and the day went off without a hitch!Sent on 09/26/2016
When we met at the rehearsal, and Alexis was there with her team, I knew that I no longer had to worry about a thing and that she was more than capable to handle everything the day of. It truly is a gift being the bride, groom, and parents and not having to worry about one detail on your wedding day. Our wedding day was easily the greatest day of our lives and Alexis was such a huge part of that. My family and I could not speak more highly of her and her team and how amazing they were through the entire process.
I am being absolutely serious when I say if you are on the fence about getting a month of coordinator - absolutely do it and you MUST choose Alexis!!

I can highly recommend Alexis to anyone planning a wedding . We would never have been able to expertly assess invitation designers, photographers, bands, venues, florists ETC without her assistance. She was easily accessible by e mail or phone and attended tastings or other important meetings with us in person. On the weekend of our daughters wedding we could enjoy the events without orchestrating "who should do what when" because Alexis was there to ensure everything went perfectly - and she did so very unobtrusively. I can not imagine a more helpful or professional wedding advisor. She is exceptional.Sent on 06/05/2016

Alexis is an amazing wedding planner. We couldn't have hoped for someone more professional or better for the job. We had a long three-day Indian wedding and hired her for our actual wedding day (wedding + reception). We should have hired her for all three days. She is extremely organized, has great relationships in the wedding community, and knows how to navigate tricky situations, whether it's with vendors/venue/family dynamics. She's also a lovely, pleasant person who is a pleasure to work with. My husband and I both had busy work schedules in another city and she completely took the stress out of our wedding planning. Our whole family was relaxed on the day of the wedding, we all had tons of fun, and there were no issues whatsoever. She even gave me the back of her earring when mine fell out and disappeared minutes before our reception entrance. So many guests commented on how smoothly and on time our wedding went, which is somewhat rare for large-scale Indian weddings like ours. She's even working with us a year after our wedding to sort out an unfortunate vendor issue that arose after our wedding (not her fault). You won't regret going with Alexis!!Sent on 10/14/2016

Hooray for Unique Weddings by Alexis! It was wonderful to have Alexis by our side during our wedding planning and on the wedding day. We had our ceremony at a slightly unconventional venue and can't imagine handling that set up and follow through without her support.Sent on 09/09/2015
Working with her and her team allowed our preparations to go smoothly and best of all it allowed us to deeply enjoy and be in the moment on the wedding day. What a gift.
I would highly recommend having Unique Weddings help you with your wedding plans, her team is professional, responsive and it was wonderful to be in the hands of an expert when we needed recommendations and counsel. Thank you Alexis!

Choosing Alexis as our wedding planner was the single best decision we made for our whole wedding. She is extremely organized, detail oriented, professional, responsive (she'd often be up even at 1am making sure any doubts or questions we had were answered!), and had great recommendations that simplified and vastly improved our wedding. We interviewed five different planners before choosing Alexis and she went on to exceed our already high expectations. She helped us to deal with very tricky family situations, to incorporate Indian cultural elements even better than an Indian wedding planner my family had worked with for my sister's wedding, went the extra mile to ensure questions we had were answered ASAP, and put in so much effort to create elegant and beautiful details for our wedding and to ensure we had the best vendors. She was equally happy to guide us on decisions where we were confused and to let us to weigh in with specific preferences.Sent on 07/25/2015
She had an amazing structured and detailed schedule of to-do's leading up to the wedding encompassing everything from linen selection and favors to my name change! We loved that she took care of all coordination with vendors including reviewing their contracts so we could focus on enjoying our day. The wedding day itself which many brides and grooms describe as full of crises and chaotic...for us was one of the very best days of our life and incredibly stress-free thanks to Alexis and her team.
I would (beyond!) enthusiastically recommend her to any bride.

Alexis is a true professional. She is able to leverage her years of experience effectively and efficiently to guide you to vendors, ideas and project management that allow you to create "your day" to perfection. As a "control enthusiast" myself, I willingly allowed myself to be led and consulted through the wedding planning process that Alexis made so easy, effortless and fun! Our guests raved about both events and the days were so carefree for me to spend with my groom, family and guests all because of Alexis' help.Sent on 04/05/2015

Alexis was incredible! We could not have done the planning without her. She was even keeled and calm and always had great suggestions. She was incredibly well organized and thought of things that I would never had thought of. Because of Alexis I was able to just enjoy my daughter's wedding on the actual date without worrying about everything being coordinated. It all went flawlessly! I would highly recommend her.Sent on 09/02/2014

I would highly recommend Unique Weddings by Alexis for your next event! Working with Alexis made the entire wedding planning process seamless and as stress-free as possible. She and her team were such professionals and extremely responsive to all requests. They completely understood our vision and really were instrumental in making our wedding the most perfect evening we could have imagined. She interfaced with our vendors with professionalism, was exceptionally organized and made our wedding flow as smoothly as we could have hoped for! Specifically, she made our lives so much easier by managing all rentals (linens, chairs, etc), creating a detailed wedding day timeline that she shared with our vendors, and worked closely with our venue contact throughout the process. Overall, she made the process so enjoyable for both ourselves and our families!Sent on 09/02/2014

I could not have asked for a more perfect wedding and Alexis, Megan and Sam made this come true. She and her team were wonderful to work with, and made sure that I was on top of all the deadlines I needed to meet. Alexis found wonderful vendors and made sure that on the day of everything ran according to plan. I am definitely not the most organized bride in the world and she was spot on in every way, making sure that the T's were crossed and the i's dotted. On the actual wedding day she and her team were everywhere at once, allowing for me to fully enjoy the wedding day. If you're looking for someone who knows how to plan, run and execute an event she is your gal!Sent on 07/30/2014

We can't thank Alexis and her team enough for everything they did for our two day event. Throughout the past year Alexis has been on top of everything and handling every issue (no matter how big or small). Because of all her incredible dedication and hard work we had a wedding that was beyond our wildest dreams (both in terms of beauty, fun and organization!). One of my favorite memories was after my family and I had checked into the hotel on Friday and I was getting my hair and makeup done. My parents were sitting in the living room of the Presidential Suite as our extended family and friends came and visited and hung out. This was all due to the fact that her team was running around the Hyatt making sure everything was in place for our Friday night welcome dinner. I can't tell you how many people came up to me and remarked at how relaxed everyone in our family looked and that really was due to Alexis. Her entire team was constantly working and running around and yet were always professional, calm and pleasant.Sent on 04/11/2014
Indian weddings are huge multi day multi event affairs that require alot of attention to detail and strict timelines in order to go well. Alexis knew how to approach every event and her vendor recommendations were really the best of the best. Not only will you love working with her your vendors love working with her too because she's so organized! On top of that her ability to review contracts to ensure that everything you need is included will save you so many headaches and money. We saved probably tens of thousands of dollars because of Alexis' foresight and contract review.
People can't stop saying how it was the best wedding they had ever attended and how everything was on time which you rarely see for an Indian wedding. Choosing Alexis as our planner was the best decision we could have made!

I don't even know where to start! After one year of working with Chelsea to plan our wedding, it seems odd now that we're not e-mailing back and forth anymore at all hours of the night trying to make every last detail both perfect and memorable. Unique Weddings by Alexis beyond exceeded our expectations for our special day and we don't know (nor do we want to know) where we would have been without them. They were with us every step of the away and even two steps a head! Thank you both for everything that you did for us - we already miss you!Sent on 11/17/2013
If you're planing a wedding and not using Unique Weddings by Alexis then you don't know what you're missing!

Review for Alexis O’MaraSent on 10/23/2013
Alexis was either able to provide personally with her professional staffers or was able to outsource the task efficiently and effectively from start to finish. Alexis exceeded my expectations in every possible way for my daughter's wedding and I cannot provide enough praise for her amazing ability to coordinate the events. Her knowledge and experience is invaluable and she recommends only the most trusted and dependable vendors as her lists are stellar. Her office is impeccable and her calm yet educated and supportive demeanor is a rock in the midst of swirls of e-mails and phone calls and lists. She handles every detail with calm and wise decision making and is attentive to every detail. With Alexis at your side, you simply cannot have a perfect event.
Mary-Stuart · Married on 10/05/2013
Alexis and her incredible team of interns are truly the best of the best! I could never even hope to put into words all that her team did for my wedding and for my mom and I, but I will certainly try! We hired Alexis pretty early on in our planning process, as we realized we just didn't have a clue what to do! And boy was that the BEST THING we ever did! (Seriously, my mom and I talk about this simple fact all the time, and we couldn't be more pleased or assured that Alexis was hands-down the best decision we made when it came to the wedding!).Sent on 10/24/2013
Alexis is such a professional - she is trustworthy, a diligent and dedicated worker (truly, she will respond to emails up until 2AM if she has to!! I don't know how she does it all!!!), devoted to her clients (there's nothing too small or too big to ask Alexis to do - and she'll put all her energy into achieving whatever it is you need). She has a full network of the BEST vendors to work with - all you have to do is ask Alexis who to use for make-up, hair, music, cake, lighting, tent, travel, stationery, - you name it! - and Alexis will happily provide you a list of vendors that fit the bill along with her personal notes about each one. Life as a bride-to-be can't be any easier when using Alexis and her team to help you plan the big day.
I cannot say this enough - you'd be a fool not to have Alexis on your team. No bride should be without an Alexis - she is far too valuable and worth every single dime!!! My mom and I were able to enjoy the whole weekend without a care in the world, since we knew Alexis and her team were there to keep the vendors on schedule and keep the night running smoothly. I would recommend Alexis to everyone I know - and will continue to advocate her services for years and years to come!
Ashley · Married on 10/05/2013
Alexis was wonderful from start to finish in our wedding planning process. The consummate professional and the very definition of organized, Alexis translated our vision into an event that surpassed our wildest expectations! She handles every detail and "big picture" concern with aplomb and ease! We couldn't have been happier with our experience from our first consultative meeting to the big day!Sent on 10/28/2013

This review is posted by the Father of the Bride. It seems to be the unanimous opinion of everyone who was at the wedding that it was the best wedding they’d ever been to … and that includes the opinion of several relatively high-flying parents of friends of the bride and groom … also my (non-high-flying) opinion too. This was a complex event in a challenging venue (the Boston Public Library, where everything from chairs to lighting has to be brought in) with a great many moving parts; the absolutely flawless execution of it was a really amazing achievement. Thanks to Alexis, my daughter's special day was perfect in every way.Sent on 09/26/2013
Justine · Married on 09/21/2013
Working with Alexis was an absolute pleasure from the start. We hired her to plan our 185-person wedding at the Boston Public Library about 15 months before the wedding date. Even that far before the wedding date, she was responsive and helpful, helping us lock down some of the best vendors in the Boston area through providing a list of vendors and setting up interviews. One of the greatest things about Alexis and her team was the apparent "never say no" policy -- they made my wildest dreams come true at a not-so-cut-and-dry venue and pulled it off without a hitch. This never say no policy included stringing up festoon lights in a space that every vendor except one said was unsuitable for such lights, putting together blow-your-mind hotel welcome bags and ensuring through repeated 'harassment' of hotel staff that they were delivered, allowing my brother to sing with the wedding band, and assisting in pulling together a last minute at-home ceremony for my terminally-ill mother (though this never actually happened as my mother passed before we could pull it off, Alexis was there every step of the way helping us out).Sent on 10/07/2013
I consider Alexis to be an extraordinary value -- in fact, I think she should charge more for her services because she devoted such an exceptional amount of time to our wedding for a very reasonable price. And the end result? Worthy of a movie, as some guests said, or a fairy tale, as others did -- completely mind-blowing.
Thutrang · Married on 07/27/2013
I had a custom package with Alexis. I had booked many vendors already but, because we were having an all day event and a VERY LARGE multi-cultural wedding and reception, I needed someone to help manage the rentals and transportation, design the large reception space, keep track of all the vendors and details, and make sure I didn't forget anything leading up to the wedding. Alexis and her team were very professional and responsive. I mostly communicated with them via email but we also met many times in person.Sent on 08/13/2013
Alexis and her team were indispensable on the day of the wedding. We changed the wedding ceremony to a full Catholic mass a week or two before the wedding so of course things ran late, but UWbA was able to communicate with the other vendors to extend their hours and had everything run smoothly. I absolutely believe everything would have fallen apart without UWbA. Instead I didn't have to stress on the wedding day and was able to enjoy it. The peace of mind, knowing I can go off and dance with my guests while Alexis and her team took care of everything, is truly priceless.

Alexis is the Goddess of Event Planning!! She made absolutely everything seamless and was a pleasure to work with. I wish she did events other than weddings so that I could use her services again. There wasn't a single detail overlooked, no matter how small. She anticipated every possible issue and dealt with them decisively and diplomatically. Anybody who passes up the opportunity to use her to coordinate their wedding is crazy.Sent on 06/30/2013

Alexis and her team at Unique Weddings by Alexis are beyond fantastic. Alexis was a godsend. If you are considering hiring a wedding planner for part of or for your entire wedding, hire Alexis immediately. No wedding coordinator could be better.Sent on 07/01/2013
I cannot stress enough how her positive attitude, supreme attention to detail, genuine kindness, and absolute professionalism made our wedding a day to remember. Most importantly, my husband and I could relax and focus on each other and our guests because we knew Alexis had literally everything handled to perfection.
Alexis on several occasions literally saved our wedding. She helped us end a contract with a terrible vendor and found our new venue. She even fixed favors that I had ordered that arrived damaged (all the shippers fault - nothing to do with Alexis - but she still fixed them anyway!) She was able to handle a difficult relative situation during the wedding with ease. I couldn't believe how seamlessly she smoothed the drama and made it appear as though nothing had happened.
Also, extremely important - Alexis was very respectful of our wedding budget and found venders that were right for us in style, size, and price.
I always felt that our wedding day meant just as much to Alexis as it did to us. Although I’m sure she was working on other weddings, she was amazingly responsive and quick. She has a terrific memory. I never had to ask her about anything twice. I had complete confidence that if I asked Alexis for something it would be done. I could put it out of my mind.
Alexis also has a wonderful calming influence. As soon as she arrived in the bridal suite, I immediately felt like everything was back under control. She got everyone calmed down and focused.
My husband and I consider Alexis to be the best money we spent. I have told numerous colleagues and friends that her services are worth far, far more than we paid and that they should absolutely hire her. I'm more than happy to be a reference for Alexis.

Alexis was able to jump into the middle of a project and see it through to completion. She was easy to work with, organized and efficient. She knows a great deal about her business and offers a variety of suggestions to meet your needs while respecting your budget.Sent on 06/22/2013

I'll start by saying that Alexis and her team were absolutely amazing to work with and made our wedding day FLAWLESS and completely stress free. We worked with Alexis and Chelsea, both whom are easy to talk with, very accessible, and totally understanding of our vision.Sent on 02/25/2013
They recommended vendors, made suggestions and wanted to ensure that our wedding day was exactly how we envisioned. They managed all of our vendors and made sure to have frequent contact with them as the big day approached (which definitely made my life a whole lot easier!).
Not only was her planning help invaluable the months leading up to the wedding, but we could not have done without her day of coordination. She kept things on schedule so that myself, rob and our families could simply enjoy and soak up the day without worrying what time to get to the church or if it was time to cut the cake.
Alexis' professionalism, enthusiasm and expertise were above and beyond... definitely the elite among wedding planners. We would HIGHLY recommend Unique Weddings to anyone who wants their perfect wedding to go off without a hitch.
Thank you Alexis for everything!

When my now husband and I got engaged we immediately knew that we were going to need some help! Neither of us knew the first thing about planning a wedding so naturally one of the first tasks was to talk with a wedding planner. I knew as soon as I met with Alexis that she would be perfect for us. While she is a consummate professional, she also makes sure to make you feel like you have a friend looking out for your best interests all the way thru the planning process. These qualities proved to be priceless when dealing with vendors, struggling with decisions, and making the wedding day ultimately perfect!Sent on 01/04/2013
Even if you are not like we were, clueless, but a couple that knows exactly what they want Alexis and her team would be beneficial. Alexis always took the time to make sure we were getting the best deals possible and her rapport with vendors is invaluable. If you want to make sure that your wedding day is stress-free and executed to perfection then Unique Weddings by Alexis is the way to go!
Evan and I could not be happier with the way our wedding day turned out and we know all this would not have been possible without Alexis and her team.
Jill · Married on 10/13/2012
Alexis and her very profressional team of experienced planners made our wedding absolutely perfect. She understood our vision and recommended experienced vendors within the area who fit into our budget and complimented our style. She was extremely attentive throughout the entire planning process, offering constant professional assisance. She helped us plan everything - from reserving transportation and hotels for our guests right down to the small details of wedding favors and ceremony programs. During the 'day of', she was invaluable! The execution of our vision went perfectly and having worked within the wedding industry for years, has a reputable repoire with every vendor we hired. If anything went wrong on our wedding day, we certainly didn't know of it...and all was resolved by the time our wedding played out! Now that is the kind of wedding planner you want on your side!Sent on 10/30/2012
Alexis' experience, engergy and professionalism were above and beyond what we expected from a wedding planner and she will make you feel like your wedding is the only event she has on her schedule! She always makes you a priority and will make not only you and your family but your guests feel comfortable throughout your special day.
We highly recommend Alexis and her team to any bride and groom. If you want the perfect day - then hire Alexis!

We hired Alexis and her team for "day of coordinator" services. They were amazing. Alexis was available months ahead of time if we needed vendor recommendations all of whom were terrific. The week before, the night before, and the day of the wedding Alexis was on top of everything without being invasive. She is a pleasure to work with and we would recommend her very highly. Bravo!!Sent on 10/15/2012
