Mother of the Bride - Forever grateful!
I'm the Mother of the bride and I can honestly say that hiring Ro (Rolanda) was one of the best decisions we made! So precise and detailed, Ro knew every vendors name and number. What time they were arriving and what they were delivering. She knew who was getting their make up and hair done and how long it would take to ensure no one would delay the photographer. I'm serious!! She is that detailed! Ro had a timeline for every detail of the wedding from the photography, church ceremony and what guest would be doing when the bridal party was taking pictures etc. Ro is so easy going too! Everyone at the Mission Inn knows and loves her. Any request Ro had they were so kind and attentive to oblige. No one said no to Ro! i.e during the wedding rehearsal it was important for us to have a communion table up front. There wasn't one in the chapel. Ro immediately worked with staff and before we new it we had a perfect round table with a nice covering. Ro even stood late on the night of the rehearsal because she wanted to make sure everything my daughter envisioned for her wedding ceremony would be done. Needless to say everything ran seamless. I think my husband and I danced to every song played that night. We enjoyed every moment of the wedding because we didn't have to worry about a thing. Ro had everything under control! For my daughter and son in law, their wedding day truly was their dream come true. Thank you Ro, we will forever be grateful.Sent on 01/07/2020

Ro is a life saver and day maker!
Rolanda made the planning and preparations for our wedding a stress-free process. She was so on top of everything and worked tirelessly with our vendors and venue to make it all come together and I really appreciated how she ensured that we were getting exactly what we intended from the vendors. On the big day, she was there whenever I needed her and we are so glad to have had her.Sent on 12/09/2019

Such an amazing experience! We didn’t have to worry about anything!!!
Rolanda is absolutely amazing! My wedding was in September of this year and I had no idea what I was doing. Rolanda made sure everything was handled and I didn't have to worry about anything. She is always so positive and energetic. She brings som many suggestions to the table and tackles every task accordingly. Rolanda was always on top of everything. She always made sure I was aware of everything that was going on without having to do anything. She really was a support system not just for me but for my whole bridal party, especially, my parents. We are forever grateful for all her services. Thanks Ro.Sent on 12/11/2019

After interviewing several wedding coordinators ( I think we interviewed a total of 7) when we felt all was lost, we came across Rolanda Hardy, she was heaven sent, literally. We felt such a great connection, good vibe and peace as soon as we had our first conversation over the phone. She was one of the best investments we made for our special day.Sent on 09/07/2019
She is attentive, quick in replying ( this was important to us) very helpful, and she has great vendor referrals, just as amazing as her.
Her attention to detail, organizational skills, knowledge and great personality helped bring everything together and in our eyes, it was perfection!
she is such a wonderful person, we love RO! She is phenomenal!
I would hire her a million times over and over for any event planning.

Best Decision Ever!
Technically, we hired Rolanda for day-off coordinating. However, she did above and beyond that title. From day one, Rolanda kept in constant contact with us. She even helped with finding some of the remaining vendors that we needed. I would send over quotes or contracts, and Rolanda immediately responded with her recommendations and additional questions to ask the vendors. I loved that whenever we had a question, Rolanda was a call or text away. She is very knowledgeable about the ENTIRE wedding process. When Rolanda went on our venue walkthrough, she asked questions that we didn't even realize needed to be asked! Having her with us definitely made the process and wedding day such a breeze. She is awesome at what she does, and is highly recommended!Sent on 01/03/2020

Ro is an amazing wedding coordinator and made an invaluable addition to our wedding party. She is detailed oriented and she asks all the right questions, some we forgot and some we didn’t know we needed to ask. Ro coordinated with our venue, our vendors, hair and makeup. Because of her professionalism and expertise the weeks and days leading up to our special day were carefree. A few weeks before the wedding I Ro made sure all vendors communicated with her only. It was great! I honestly didn’t have to worry about anything. On the day of I was able to sit back, relax, get glammed, get married and enjoy our special day. Thank you for providing us with such phenomenal service!Sent on 03/04/2020

The best day coordinator
Ro was the best! She kept everything moving and on schedule. If there was a hitch we never knew because it all ran to perfection. We highly recommend hiring Ro to make your wedding day the ultimate success!Sent on 07/30/2019

Day of Coordination for Wedding
Ro was fantastic! She did day of coordination for us and we were thrilled with how everything turned out. She went above and beyond her duties and we were so grateful to have her for our wedding day :)Sent on 09/15/2019

Great to work with, day of coordination went smoothly!
We hired Ro for day of coordination and she was great to work with. She drove out to meet us at our venue which was not close to where she normally coordinates to meet face to face, which is an example of how she goes above and beyond. Throughout the process she kept everything in check with our vendors so that things would go smoothly day of and was super responsive with any questions we had. Ro kept it personable, she remained cool under pressure and keeps it lax.Sent on 05/29/2019

Destination wedding planning
Rolanda, our wedding and sangeet event planner was simply amazing. Prathibha and I connected with Rolanda on our very first call. Rolanda co-ordinated with various vendors and the event managers at Mission Inn to help with with our destination wedding in May 2019. She was prompt, gave us her honest feedback and worked within our parameters and budget needs. We would highly recommend her services as a superb event planner. Easy to work with, we were very happy with Ro and her team.Sent on 06/30/2019

Rolanda is the best!
Rolanda and her team are amazing!!! She is such a positive person that was so important in such a stressful time like a preparation for a big day. She always was quick with her responses on email or phone. Always had a solution for everything! I tried to organize all by myself and now I regret that I didn’t listen to Rolanda haha She is a real deal and knows what she is doing! I would highly recommend her and please let her do more and trust more hahah She knows what she is doing! That’s why my Wedding was stress free! Thank you!! Love you! Mika!Sent on 03/20/2019

Best of the best
Words cannot explain how thankful I am to have had Rolanda as our Wedding Coordinator. She was available for us 24/7 and answered texts, emails and got the job done asap. Its as if she was able to read my mind for things I wanted done without even telling her. She and her team were amazing from coordinating vendors, making sure they got things done the way we wanted and making things happen based on our vision. I will definitely be recommending her to all my friends and family and will be using her and her team on events to come.Sent on 12/30/2018

Amazing wedding coordinator!
I hired Ro for the month of for my daughter‘s wedding. Although I hired her for the month of, We were communicating with her at least four months in Advance. She responds quickly to our emails and phone calls; she will never leave you with an unanswered question. On the day of my daughter’s wedding, absolutely no issues, she kept everybody in line and everything went according to the timeline. She’s wonderful, her services are worth more than she charges. I highly recommend her.Sent on 12/18/2018

Vision into Reality Events is where you can stop your search. Rolanda and crew are outstanding. What mostly stands out to me would be the way they handled themselves. They were on top of everything without making us feel stressed. Made the entire day perfect all while making it look easy. Every one of our vendors commented on how great Rolanda was. She took everything we said and executed it extremely well. As our perfect day progressed she was calm, collected and extremely accommodating.Sent on 09/24/2018
Easily the best decision was to have Vision into Reality provide our month of coordination. Rolanda also is not like any other coordinator, she wants to be your friend get to know you, have a meal with you (The waffles were amazing at that place Ro.). This is what above and beyond service is and she does it with the greatest smile.

Rolanda was simply THE BEST!
My husband & I hired Rolanda to help plan our wedding this past August and we're still grateful for everything she did for us. We got so many compliments from our guests and they're still talking about everything! Such a great feeling. Rolanda was very patient, detailed and organized. I was able to let go (just a little bit lol) and just let her do her thing. We went with the day-of services because of our budget, but would definitely recommend going with the full package. Planning a wedding is not easy and she'll make it a piece of cake.Sent on 02/14/2019
Bryanna · Married on 08/04/2018
Vision into Reality was absolutely life saving when it came to planning our special day. Rolanda was awesome from start to finish and I don’t think we could have gotten through the day without her. From planning, to execution she was on top of everything and truly helped take the stress out of the day so we could focus on the important stuff; our Wedding! Seriously, if you’re thinking of whether or not you need a planner, YOU DO. I promise you it takes the hassle off of things and will actually SAVE you money. Rolanda helped us stay within our budget and helped us haggle with the vendors for better deals where we thought they wouldn’t budge. We had a very specifically themed and intricate wedding so this wasn’t an easy event and she absolutely came through and made sure our timing was spot on which was a major component of the day running smoothly. I will be sending our dearest friends to her and if you are in the market for a wedding planner don’t hesitate because she is absolutely incredible at what she does! Thanks for everything Ro!!!Sent on 08/27/2018

It’s really tough to put into words how amazing Ro truly is! My wife and I recently got married on July 8, 2018. From the day we first spoke to Ro, I knew she would do everything possible to make our day special and she did exactly that! She took all the pressure off of us and if we needed anything at all, she was on top of it immediately. Planning a wedding is hectic. Add this to the fact that we were filming for a Facebook show, Help Us Get Married, and we were literally all over the place. Ro stepped in and it was easy to forget we were supposed to be planning anything because she did such a wonderful job of coordinating schedules, connecting with our vendors and doing the sometimes difficult job of working with management at our venue. Even beyond being easy to work with, Ro really is a wonderful person. My wife and I couldn’t have found a more perfect person to work with. I wish we had another huge event to plan, because she would definitely be our first call. Lol. If you’re reading this and considering anyone else, do yourself a favor and get it together. Ro is the BEST! If you’re lucky enough to work with her, you’ll be glad you did.Sent on 08/14/2018

Cheers to Rolanda! Ro was so helpful, accessible and friendly! She kept us on track with reminders, easily coordinated family members and vendors for us -- and most importantly, she made sure that we, the married couple, were happy! We think of her now as a friend. We highly recommend her for all your event needs!Sent on 06/11/2018

Rolanda is hands down the sweetest, hard working, caring person I have met ! I went through a lot of research and looking around until I finally met Ro and instantly knew she was the one. From our very first meeting we just clicked. She made sure to be 100% honest with everything and made the wedding planning process so easy and smooth for us. She found and hired everyone from our photographer, florist to the DJ. Even booked my wedding dress appointents with detailed descriptions of how to get there and the right amount of time to get to and from each one with even some food recommendations for us to go eat. Her attention to detail is just amazing. I wanted very specific things and she helped me find every single one of them ! Ro went above and beyond what I expected a wedding planner to do. I can honestly say I would’ve been so lost without her. I recommend her to anyone looking for a planner. Trust me this is going to be one of the most important decisions regarding your wedding or event and she is going to ensure it goes smoothly. She’s a go getter that has EXCELLENT communication skills. Whatever you need she’s got your back ! She became a good friend that I could call with a problem (wedding related or not). Ro is hands down the best and I can’t thank her enough for helping us through this wedding process !!! Do yourself a favor and call her.Sent on 04/03/2018

The whole wedding went off without a hitch! Thanks to Ro and her experience we were able to handle the usual snags and show our guests an amazing reception. All of my vendors loved Ro and thought she was great to deal with. They all showed up, knew what to do and we exceeded our own expectations. Thank you Ro. My daughter and I will be forever grateful for our fantasy wedding.Sent on 03/26/2018
Caroline · Married on 03/23/2018
Ro was the perfect wedding planner! The first thing she said to me, "Caroline, I will make sure your champagne glass is always full on the big day!" And then I knew she was the one! The questions I should have asked, she already had the answers to! We got married in 5 months, so there was a lot to do and Ro made sure everything was checked off the list that we wanted. She made sure I was happy, even when my mom wanted to bud in with her opinions haha! She wasn't blowing up my phone and only called for important decisions. She has THE BEST suggestions for brides because she has done so many weddings and she sees what makes brides so happy! Ro really goes above and beyond to make sure the bride gets everything she wants on her big day and she is always there for you! There are so many decisions to make when planning a wedding, and you really can't survive without a planner like Ro. It was truly an honor to have her as my wedding planner and I'll miss working with her! I will probably use her for future baby showers;)Sent on 04/18/2018
Sara · Married on 12/31/2017
Where do I begin? Rolanda is hands down THE best coordinator to take care of any wedding or any event. She was there for me literally every step of the way once I hired her. She was accessible, reliable, professional & executed the timeline/plan for my wedding on top and made sure that it ran as planned. If there were any snags, it was taken care of before I even knew about it. She is detailed oriented and really made sure my expectations were met. In this case, my expectations were surpassed. I thought for sure she had her work cut out for herself with this wedding (I had a lot planned!); she rocked it!! She put in hours (15 to be exact) the Day Of to make sure everything went off without a hitch. I can't express my gratitude and appreciation for her services enough. I highly recommend her if you want to relieve the stress that comes along with planning a wedding. She's worth every penny. With that said, thank you, Ro, for everything you have done to make my wedding a success!!!Sent on 01/03/2018

Words cannot express my gratitude for Rolanda. My wedding was everything I had imagined it to be! It was the PERFECT wedding day and it all went so smoothly because of Rolanda.Sent on 12/16/2017
If you think you don't need a wedding planner , think again and if you think you can go with just any one THINK AGAIN! I was referred to Rolanda by a co-worker, at the time I didn't feel I needed a planner. My fiancé (now husband) and I were planning a small wedding less then 100 people. I met with Ro, at the request of my fiancé, he was urging me to get a planner even if for just the day of stuff. And instantly my mom, my fiancé, and I all fell in love with her!! She was so fun and bubbly. Ro is very straight forward and honest. At that first meeting we went over what I had already completed and what my vision was. She said that based on our conversation she felt confident that we really only needed her for month of planning rather then full detail work. She explained that this would mean that about 30 days before our wedding she would gather all my vendors details and do confirmations etc. But she went above and beyond. She was there to always answer any questions or concerns. And even would call me to check in and make sure I didn't need anything and to insure all I's were dotted and all T's were crossed.
Ro is a top-notch planner and I am incredibly lucky to have had her help. She always made use feel as though she had everything 100% under control. Like last minute finding pedal for my flower girl since the florist forgot them. Trust me, you want this is in a planner!! The day of the wedding ran so smoothly. Everything, every person, every moment... PERFECT!!!! I truly do not think it would have been the same without her!
Sandy · Married on 11/10/2017
Our wedding was truly a special and magical day and I owe it ALL to Rolanda. If you’re planning a wedding and don’t think you need an event coordinator- think again! I was so overwhelmed with the entire process prior to hiring Ro. I remember our first conversation she said, “I will handle it all & if anything goes wrong the day of, you will not know about it!”. I hired her right away and it was the best decision I made for our wedding! She definitely kept to her word and our day went so smoothly. I still dream about our wedding day- it was honestly so perfect!!Sent on 12/29/2017
Rolanda kept in constant communication with all of my vendors, always kept me up to date AND on my toes! I only hired Rolanda for month-of coordination but I felt like she always went above and beyond for me. We were always in communication via text & phone call. She helped me plan all of the fine details that you may not even think about if you don’t have an experienced coordinator.
The day of, I couldn’t BELIEVE how beautiful everything was. She really turned our wedding vision & made it come to life. My husband & I were completely in awe. Rolanda kept all of my vendors on their toes with the detailed timeline she constructed in order to have a smooth day. During the reception, Rolanda was always checking in with my husband & I and kept in communication with my DJ to make sure the activities were happening smoothly. The reception went off without a hitch & we had such a blast! Our whole day was SO beautiful from start to finish. At the end, Rolanda made sure all wedding decor went to the correct person and my husband & I were able to enjoy our wedding night- stress-free!
Rolanda is such an awesome & genuine person; I couldn’t have imagined our day without her! If you’re thinking about hiring a wedding coordinator, do yourself a favor and hire Rolanda! She will work her magic, make wedding planning less stressful & make your day stress-free! She is truly the best & you will not be disappointed.
