Flawless stressfree execution
When we decided to on-board Tionna as our full time wedding planner, it was purely on the basis of her fantastic vibe and the calm and comfort she exuded. Little did we realize at the time, that this would turn out to be the best decision we took for our wedding. Tionna went above and beyond with every single detail right from understanding our vision for the wedding, helping us pick the right photographer, videographer, caterer, following a meticulous timeline, while ensuring that we never once felt the stress of our big day approaching. On the day of our wedding, Tionna and her team at Wedicity had every moment planned out, and all the moving parts organized spectacularly, all the while helping us enjoy the day without a worry in the world. So much so, that she even had a lint remover sent at a moment's notice all the way to the photoshoot venue, just so that the pictures would be perfect. And they truly were!!!
Thank you Tionna for making our wedding into our dream wedding
P.S. She managed to pull this off in under 3 months!Sent on 04/27/2020

An amazing coordinator
Tionna was so great to work with, and we can't recommend her enough. She responds to all contact in a timely manner, provides recommendations for vendors, and is thorough and detail-oriented. She wants to dream big with you but also keep you grounded and suggest alternatives to picture locations that are just not possible like historic bars and hotels. She was positive and supportive of us as we tried to finalize plans for our wedding in Chicago in the middle of the Covid-19 global pandemic, and when we made the difficult decision to cancel, she helped contact all of our vendors to start cancelling their services. Hiring her was one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding.Sent on 03/26/2020

Fabulous wedding & event planner!! Highly recommended!
Wow!! 5 stars aren’t enough to describe what a phenomenal wedding & Event planner Wedicity is!!
Our company enlisted Tionna to design and execute our annual wedding industry gala for our 2020 magazines and couldn't be more thrilled with the results!
She came up with an inspirational, truly lovely vision and we can't thank her enough for all the hard work (hours and hours and hours) and love she put into it to make her stunning vision come to life. Tionna’s incredible organization from beginning to end made everyone's job much easier. She lead the entire vendor team with efficiency, professionalism and kindness throughout, allowing each person to showcase their best work. With the beautiful venue still in its opening phases, there were many obstacles to overcome but you would never know it as an event attendee.
Tionna is an absolute pleasure to do business with as she approaches her work with passion, warmth and enthusiasm! She brings creativity and out of the box thinking to all situations. She gives 110% to every every task and is an excellent communicator. I appreciate her impeccable follow through and I highly recommend working with her.Sent on 03/05/2020

With the state of the economy, shut down of city of Chicago, and pandemic, we had to scale back our original wedding plans! Tionna Van Gundy, founder of Wedicity, met our expectations for our special day by keeping a conservative budget, consistent communication with vendors, and maintaining an optimistic approach in planning.
I recommend Tionna to all our friends planning a wedding, no matter what the size or circumstances, she is the perfect planner to work with. She is prompt in her communication, professional, and maintains a calm demeanor through each obstacle that comes your way.
Looking at our photos from our special day, Tionna has a big smile on her face as she shares the happiness and joy with the couple, whichever way their wedding planning takes them.Sent on 06/09/2020

Friendly, knowledgable, passionate
Wedicity Chi was an invaluable partner throughout the process of planning our wedding. With Western and Hindu ceremonies, Tionna helped us navigate the process of balancing and planning two ceremonies effortlessly. She brought tremendous cultural knowledge and sensitivity to every interaction. She encouraged us to make decisions that respectfully honored tradition while also remaining true to our contemporary values. Most importantly, she helped us understand our position and empowered us in our role as clients as we hired our vendors. She gave us the confidence to ask questions and make requests.Sent on 01/14/2021
Unfortunately, we were unable to live out our beautifully detailed ceremonies due to the pandemic. In this unplanned moment, Tionna proved her value beyond planning + detailing, providing excellent counsel and empathy in explaining our options and the processes for either re-planning or "un-planning." Despite the disappointment of our formal wedding ceremonies not occurring, we are grateful to have had the experience of working with her over the past year. We would highly recommend her for any type of event of any size.

Event planning at it's VERY Best!!
We were lucky enough to work with Tionna for a Wedding & Event Industry Gala. She worked tirelessly with the brand new venue (we were their first event ever) to make the event run seamlessly! Tionna is wildly talented, uber-organized and fabulously patient. They covered every detail and her communication with our many sponsors was very detailed and thorough. 5 stars truly isn't enough!! Thank you!!Sent on 03/05/2020

Working with Tionna and the Wedicity team made our whole engagement time and wedding stress-free. We could not have asked for more! We gave Tionna our vision for the event and she turned it into a reality even better than we could have imagined! We had a lot of specific requirements, being that it was a destination wedding with a lot of guests, and it was going to span over three days. We thought that it would be difficult to plan such an event, but that didn't seem to phase Tionna! When we landed in California for the big day, she had a seamless timeline of where we needed to be and when. It was honestly like a dream it was so perfect. She was amazing to work with and we are so grateful for her help in creating the best wedding weekend of our lives. I would also like to mention that even our guests mentioned that they had never been to such a well-organized wedding before and that they can't wait for the next party she plans!Sent on 10/28/2019

Most Important Wedding Vendor
First advice about weddings I heard was, "if you can, get a wedding planner". But, I didn't get just planner, I got Tionna and her team! From my first meeting with her, I could see her experience and her strive for excellence. She took initiative to collaborate to with my vendors and had an online portal that kept it all organized. There were so many little details that they just knew how to take care of. The communication - AMAZING
WediCity let me experience my own wedding without stressing or thinking about logistics. Everything was just perfectly taken care of in the background. I felt like a queen being gently ushered from one amazing part of my wedding to another. I don't know how I could have planned a wedding and loved it so much without Wedicity's help.
Also need to mention how much Tionna rocks the non-traditional ceremony format! We had inexperienced officiant and she walked them through everything. They felt so comfortable by the time of the ceremony. She knew about all the little movements that are necessary to make it look cohesive (and get good pics). We even got the more traditional guests raving about our ceremony :DSent on 02/14/2020

Look no further for the best wedding planner
Hiring Tionna was by far the best decision we made for our wedding day. Despite being a very organized person I knew that I needed someone to take care of all the day of details and be the go-to person in case anything were to go wrong.Sent on 09/08/2019
From the moment I first met Tionna I knew I needed to work with her. She is so kind, genuine, and really listens to what you are communicating. She helped us choose some of our vendors, jumped in to find us potential alternative ceremony locations when we were unsure of our plan, and was very quick to respond to any question, no matter how small or big.
She was able to create a very detailed timeline and communicate with all of our vendors in order to make the whole day run smoothly. From running the rehearsal, to coordinating all the day of details, to fixing any problem or issue the day of, we can’t thank Tionna enough for taking us on as clients.
To be honest, we both were able to TRULY enjoy every single minute of our wedding knowing that Tionna had our back and was going to handle anything that came her way. I honestly can’t think of one thing I worried about the day of because I knew I had such a brilliant person that really knows the business on my side.

Tionna is the best!
If you are looking for a DOC, do yourself a favor and hire Tionna and her team ASAP! We were referred to Tionna by our baker (Erin Martin @ ECBG). We met with her and immediately hit it off (helps that she's from OH just like husband). Tionna's fees were slightly higher than we were looking to spend so we met with two other planners. After all our meetings we decided that Tionna's professionalism and experience were worth the expense.Sent on 08/26/2019
Even though we only hired her for Day-of planning, she began working with us 5 months out. She was always available via email, in addition to the 2-3 in person meetings we had with her. Some of our vendors had worked with Tionna in the past and they had only good things to say about her, like that she was very organized and low-drama. Two qualities which are so important for your planner to have.
Her impeccable planning made it so that by the time our wedding day arrived, we didn't have to worry about anything. Honestly, the day was perfect. If anything went wrong, we had no idea. Tionna and her team completely transformed our reception space. To this day I'm not sure what type of magic she was able to pull off, but our reception looked AMAZING.
Our wedding was on a smaller scale and a smaller budget than some of the weddings profiled on Wedicity's website. And yet, we never felt like less of a priority to Tionna. She gave us the same attention to detail and support as I'm sure she gives all her couples.
If we ever have to plan a large event in the future, we will without a doubt reach out to Tionna & Wedicity. She helped make our dream wedding a reality. HIRE HER NOW!!!

The best choice we made for our wedding
Honestly, there is not enough good things I can say about Tionna and her crew. We hired her for her full services, and she exceeded all expectations. She was patient as we took over 3 months to pick a wedding venue, going all over the city to show us our options. Impressively, the one we ended up choosing was on her first list of suggestions -- we just stupidly didn't want to see it at first! She helped keep us within our budget, and calm. When getting married in a big city like Chicago, the amount of options can feel so overwhelming. Tionna narrowed that down, and anyone she suggested, we immediately trusted. My husband and I were able to enjoy our special day, without worrying about any details and logistics. We just showed up to see our dream come to life! At the end of the night, she made sure everything got to our hotel, and even had a special surprise in our room (which I won't give away and spoil for any future couples, but it was very beautiful). Hiring Wedicity as our planner was the best decision we could have made for our wedding day, and I would recommend them to anybody.Sent on 09/12/2019

Best decision we ever made.
My husband and I worked with Tionna leveraging her Full Service Wedding Services, which means we started working with her starting a whole 11 months before our wedding. Overall, this was unequivocally the best decision we made throughout the entire process of planning our day. While we simply cannot rave about Tionna enough (her flawless professionalism, prompt communication, consistency in service, willingness to help for any issue no matter how big or small....) there are a few items she particularly excelled at and surpassed our wildest expectations:Sent on 08/24/2019
- Vendor Referrals -- we chose a venue where we had to essentially hire everything a-la-carte; Tionna had outstanding vendor recommendations, from caterer to floral to cake baker to DJ/Band that precisely fit our style and helped us stay within budget.
- Decor and Design Assistance -- she is outstanding at understanding the style and taste of a couple, as the decor input she gave us across the board from floral to linen selections to even feedback/direction on all our stationary and printed materials was exactly what we were thinking but couldn't quite articulate as eloquently and direct as she could.
- Communication & "calming of the nerves" -- her calm tonality and graceful way she handles anything thrown her way are unworldly. She approaches things briskly and understands urgency but handles it with the calmness of a scented candle. There came a point my mother started reaching out to her directly, in addition to my anxiety as we approached the date, and she consistently & selflessly gave us confidence and assurance during the process. This personally was one of the most important things to me throughout the year.
- Dedication - Tionna and the Wed-icity team stayed throughout the entire night of our wedding, until the very end, including taking care of all reception and personal items & lovingly/securely placing everything in our hotel room. Her philosophy is that NO ONE should work on wedding day---except her team! This was so incredibly important to myself, my family and bridal party.
- Cultural understanding - My wedding was a combo Italian/Lebanese backgrounds coming together, needing to have a Catholic ceremony but not able to have it in a church. Tionna helped immensely with the "marriage" of our traditions and backgrounds in regards to ceremony and reception detail, including understanding the importance of finding a cookie baker that could make cookies from "around the world" suiting everyone's tastes.
What stood out to us about Tionna even when we first spoke with her was her humble approach to servicing the couple--- being such an outstanding listener, in tune with everything we described and always helpful/additive vs. ever making us feel like we were making 'wrong' decisions. Her light hearted humor made everything (even stressful decisions) continue to feel 'light,' while still giving us the sense of how seriously she takes the work. This all punctuated the experience my husband and I had throughout the last year and truly made our "wedding" last so far beyond one day---in the best way possible. We will forever have memories of how seamless (and FUN) the process of working with Tionna was. If it isn't clear already, we couldn't recommend her more.

Tionna is a force.
My wife and I were engaged for a year and a half before our wedding. I’m proud of what we locked down in that first year, but I’m telling you right now—our day would not have happened without Tionna. Booking vendors opens so many different lines of communication; juggling them all was immeasurably easier with her in our corner. She took the reins on the big stuff, like drafting a timeline with our venue or making a rehearsal dinner even happen. She coached us through the little stuff, like pinning flowers on my groomsmen and arranging a twenty person bridal party on a crowded rooftop. She understood our vibe instantly and filled the gaps in our vision. She’s knowledgeable, she’s communicative, she’s staggeringly prompt. She and the small army that is Wedicity will ensure you get hitched without a hitch.Sent on 01/23/2020

Above and beyond is the name of the game at Wedicity!
If you want a stress-free, smooth sailing wedding planning journey then take on Tionna as your guide to all things wedding and all things planning! We can say without a doubt that it was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!Sent on 07/26/2019
I've been struggling to find the right words to fully encompass our gratitude for all the impossible and astounding hard work and care Tionna put into helping make our wedding day the best day of our lives. What I can say is that everything went exactly as planned, was perfectly timed and spaced out, and we did not worry once the entire day.
Tionna’s help and guidance from start to finish created that safety net that my fiancé, my mother, and I all desperately needed. That knowledge that at the end of the day, someone would be there to help prevent us from falling behind or forgetting to take care of an important detail in the planning process. Tionna checked in on us regularly, providing detailed checklists with due dates to keep us on track. Those checklists made this process feel more manageable and gave us a sense of satisfaction to see each item checked off as it was completed.
But what we valued the most was how Tionna created an environment where we never felt uncomfortable or silly asking questions. She made a point of reminding us to enjoy the process as much as the end results, and to not back down from prioritizing and personalizing the parts of the wedding that we felt strongly about. We always felt like she understood our priorities and made sure we attained them.
We are so glad we hired Tionna to help with our wedding, and would choose her again without hesitation!

Tionna & WediCity are amazing!
Hiring Tionna and the WediCity team was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! Tionna has such a calming presence and really made us feel like we were on top of everything and kept us on track throughout the planning process. The timeline Tionna made for our vendors and wedding party were extremely detailed and helpful. On our wedding day, we were amazed at how quick and efficient she was at taking care of every detail. All of our decor was set up perfectly and Tionna kept everything flowing smoothly at the reception. We were truly amazed at how perfect our day went! We would absolutely recommend Tionna and her team!Sent on 09/10/2019

Wedicity is the right choice!
Choosing Tionna and the Wedicity team was the best decision I made while starting to plan my wedding. Tionna made the day go perfectly. Every detail was handled, all guests delighted, and our ceremony, reception and everything before and in between all went so well I still can’t even believe it. My husband and I enjoyed every single moment of the wedding - getting ready that day, the trolley ride, ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, visiting with our guests, and danced the night away without a single care because Tionna and her team were so completely on top of every detail. She helped us find everything we needed for the wedding, took the reigns on all the tedious vendor communications, kept us organized and on track with planning, and SO MUCH MORE. I could go on and on. I was very budget conscious and Tionna helped me determine where to spend and where to save. She has an amazing website that makes organizing everything, from your budget to RSVPs to songs for the dj, a complete breeze. As an indecisive, high strung bride - she was exactly what I needed to make our wedding amazing. So many of our guests came up to us and said it was one of the best weddings that they have ever been to. That credit goes to Tionna and the Wedicity team.Sent on 06/18/2019

Do not plan a wedding without Tionna.
This review cannot start any other way besides this: do not have a wedding if you are not going to hire Tionna.
It might be actually impossible that Tionna Van Gundy is a human. A wizard? Sure. An angel? Absolutely. The modern day wedding lord and savior? No doubt. A regular human? Not possible.
Background on us as a couple: relatively organized, deeply in love with our friends and family, hell bent on having a good time always, dead set on ensuring our people have a good time. As we took on the beast that is wedding planning, we were quickly overwhelmed with the level of detail so many different things needed that was well beyond any realm of either of our experiences – I work in pediatric healthcare and he is a high school teacher. We were referred to Wedicity and Tionna through Erin Martin, a good friend from college, at ECBG (peep our review on her page because there is no one better for your cake and sweets table dreams). With our budget in mind, we admittedly called Tionna with some hesitance at one more thing to budget for. However, after a roughly 15 minute phone call, clearly outlined expectations and what would be provided, our entire budget was readjusted to accommodate Tionna’s “Day Of” planning package, which included 3 months before and up through the day of the ceremony. We COULD NOT BELIEVE how affordable she was for everything she offered, and looking back now we honestly would’ve paid 3x+ what we paid her for everything she did for us.
For those of you who don’t like to read long paragraphs, I’m going to list the top 10 things Tionna did for us and hope it encapsulates the level of professionalism, skill and sheer knack combined with pure talent Tionna has for helping you craft a day that will surpass your dreams, hopes and expectations.
1. Tionna accompanied us to our dinner tasting and florist meeting which you may not think is worth bringing your wedding planner to, but please understand how helpful it was. For the tasting, she came prepared with an organized list of preferences, the start of the timeline for our day, and helped us manage conversations with a passionate yet pushy sales associate to ensure that we got what we wanted. She took my place at the florist meeting when I got the flu and helped my mom Facetime me in so I could still participate, despite being wildly contagious and bound to my couch.
2. Tionna kept us motivated, organized and focused with separated, clear and concise checklists to ensure we were taking care of the right things in the right order. The software that comes with her services is so easy to use, so helpful and became our lifeline throughout the planning process.
3. Tionna offered genuine opinions when asked, helpful advice when needed and clear guidance throughout. It’s crystal clear how much she cares about her clients and how much experience she has all over this industry to help you truly decide on what is best for you and your partner.
4. Tionna set up meetings with us at times that were convenient for us, giving us her full time, attention and listening ear, and never made us feel rushed, silly or otherwise. She was even so understanding and kind to us after we mistakenly missed one of our final meetings.
5. Tionna helped us and our officiant, a mentor of mine from college, craft the most beautifully symbolic, authentically representative and uniquely beautiful ceremony. Tionna has a wealth of knowledge across all the faiths, cultures, rituals and traditions and helped us combine a 3-faith circumstance into the most amazing ceremony. The undertaking of writing our own ceremony had us lost, confused and overwhelmed and we would have quickly abandoned the idea had it not been for Tionna.
6. Tionna was timely, efficient and wildly helpful with every single e-mail we sent, question we had and phone call we made. I literally don’t think we had anything go more than 24 hours before it was answered in full, often times with documents or further advice to ensure we were well informed and clear in our decision.
7. Tionna took care of all the necessary paperwork, contracts, insurance, etc. etc. etc. and ensured we had everything submitted on time, signed on the dotted line and took care of keeping all the important paperwork organized. We could have probably managed this on our own, but to have it neatly organized and cared for was such a nice relief.
8. Tionna was generous with the physical materials she already has, which saved us a bunch of money. It was so kind of her to allow us to borrow things she had from other events.
9. The night before, Tionna ran a perfectly timed rehearsal which helped our entire wedding party feel better, more confident, and was a wild relief for not just my groom and I, but our parents as well. She reminded us of our places, timing, when to stop, when to start, where to turn, how to smile, what to hold, how to be, etc. etc. etc. I genuinely don’t know how we would’ve gotten through the rehearsal without her.
10. The day of. I have absolutely no words. Her and her two assistants, Anesha and Ashley, arrived on scene and literally jumped into action, managing everything from where flowers and dresses were to getting the maintenance staff to cool off the getting ready room. One of them (I have no idea who) was kind enough to go back to our hotel to grab the garter I forgot in my room. They were literally like ninjas, managing the show from the behind the scenes while also making things magically appear, disappear, and happen from the moment they arrived until past the moment they were gone.
Above all, she ensured that not just my groom and I had actually the most magical day, but that our parents could be part of our day alongside us rather than managing everything she and her team managed, which is beyond invaluable (particularly when both mom’s are super Type-A people ). Tionna went further above and beyond the call of duty in advocating for us with the venue and our venue contact when there were several issues with dinner that should never have been an issue. Needless to say, my parents, nor the groom, nor his parents nor I had any idea any of it happened, because Tionna and her team are that good.
Please do not consider planning or executing a wedding without Tionna and Wedicity. We are eternally and beyond grateful for their time, attention to detail, skill and genuine love for what they do that gave us the memories of a lifetime.

Worth her weight in gold!
We are so happy that we found Tionna. My husband and I agree it was the best decision we made during the entire wedding planning process. We had a lot of the big ticket items settled, but needed someone to keep us in line and on schedule for the 9 months or so leading up to the event and manage the day-of details. So we met with her and were able to do a custom sort of planner - someone that is between a full-suite event planner and day-of planner. She lived up to and exceeded those expectations! We were so aligned that by the time it was the week before the wedding, there was hardly anything to do. It was a breeze and complete weight off of our shoulders. As far as the wedding day - everything went according to plan. She also managed to handle every little issue that may have come up (such as a guest showing up who RSVP'ed no! and also to helping me fix my wedding dress before the reception as it had a tear on it!) Additionally, the planning software she and you use is really helpful for listing attendees, what their meal choice is, planning who is sitting at which table, and overall layout of the reception venue. Made that part a breeze. Absolutely hire her for your wedding!Sent on 12/28/2018

We contacted Tionna after a recommendation from one of my friends when she planned their amazing wedding. We had spoken with quite a few other wedding coordinators as well but once we met Tionna we knew Wedicity was exactly who we needed for our wedding! Tionna is extremely organized and kept us on track- reminding us of things we didn't even know about and had amazing ideas to add to our big day. All the vendors we worked with love her and were so thankful that she was helping. Leading up to the wedding the weather was NOT looking good- since my wedding was partially outside with a permanent tent she made sure we had a plan B and executed everything to keep the look and feel exactly how we wanted. The wedding would not have gone smoothly without her- at all. We are so thankful that she was there making sure that everything was on schedule and making sure that everything went smoothly.Sent on 10/12/2018

Being a self employed, business owner I thought I could do it all. Nope! Even on the big day, my family (whose used to being put to work at other family weddings) were raving about about them.

Positive Energy, Flawless Execution
Hiring Tionna and her team was the best decision I made when planning my wedding. Let me be clear, I knew absolutely nothing about planning a wedding before we got engaged and what I tried to teach myself was so overwhelming! Tionna makes everything super relatable and attainable, everything is going to be fine! She makes sure of it! In the months leading up to the wedding she provided us referrals for any vendors that we were lacking, one of whom I hired to do calligraphy for the wedding who was also super affordable amazing. No matter how many questions I had, she was on it! 90 days out we met up, created lists, talked vendors, timelines, walked through the ceremony, etc. and we left with to dos and dates for us to accomplish. 60 day out we visited the venue, were able to ask questions and really visualize our wedding. 30 days out we met up, discussed everything, and I was able to meet her assistant Anesha who was also incredible. Her and her team were so sweet, super patient and positive, incredible energy from the planning to rehearsal to of course the wedding day itself. We had so many items to set up, vendors to coordinate, & a clueless wedding party and they executed flawlessly. They had ear buds and walkies and were communicating with each other constantly - I felt like i was in “The Wedding Planner” (shameless J Lo reference). There wasn’t a single issue and they were always there when I needed them from the second I needed to walk down the aisle, to ensuring we had food during cocktail hour and the reception, to providing emergency glue to a dangling lash, and finally to literally bustling my dress before dancing the night away. I can’t recommend Tionna enough for what she did for me and my wedding. I am truly lucky to have found her and her team!Sent on 10/26/2018

The best of the best!
If you’re considering working with an event coordinator - look no further! You’ve found the best. I’m not sure that I have the words to describe how amazing Tionna and her team are. I was consistently blown away by Tionna’s professionalism, attention to detail, intuition, and genuine love for what she does. Our initial wedding budget did not include a day of coordinator but as we continued through the planning process, coupled with a cross country move and both starting new jobs, it became increasingly apparent that we would benefit from an experienced wedding coordinator. BEST DECISION EVER. Seriously, worth every penny!! If you’re on the edge of deciding on whether or not to work with Tionna, I truly don’t think it would be a decision you would regret. One thing that set Tionna apart from other wedding coordinators that I spoke to was the fact that we would get started working together right away - this was a huge benefit that not many were offering in their day of coordinating packages. Beyond that, we also had a great first conversation during our initial phone call. I’m sure she could tell I was a bit frazzled, stressed, and anxious trying to pull together all of the little details but she was calm and handled me with ease. We thought we were hiring a “day of coordinator” but in reality we got so much more. Our first In person meeting was at our final vendor walk through, this was the point in which my husband and I both left the meeting so happy with our decision to work with Tionna. She Jumped right in as if she had been planning our wedding from the beginning! She had an incredibly positive attitude and advocated for us when we were met with hesitancy when wanting to get creative with our venue floor plan and floral design. She coordinated our rehearsal dinner, our wedding day and ceremony timeline, worked with our officiant to finalize the ceremony script, and had everything printed out and organized for everyone. Any last minute changes I made did not phase her one bit. I cannot stress enough how good it felt to not have to worry about making sure everything was going according to plan on our wedding day. All we had to do was show up and get married. I felt so calm having someone to look to for guidance and I felt even better knowing that everyone else had a resource that wasn’t me! Our wedding day was SEAMLESS! If anything went wrong I didn’t know, and still don’t know!! Her timing was impeccable - she worked with our DJ to que dances, food service, cake cutting, etc. at the perfect time. She made sure we were fed (she brought us our food herself!!! What?!), had plenty to drink, and checked on us frequently. I came down with a headache mid way through the reception and she materialized with medicine out of nowhere. I also need to highlight that fact that her attention to detail is insane! She provided multiple floor plan ideas - all I had to do was pick one and provide the seating chart, easy enough! She provided decor/wedding related items that I didn’t even think about and somehow fit perfect with our venue and theme. At some point in the night she slipped away to our hotel room and set up all of our gifts, my bouquet, pictures, and a few other small treats. I have no idea how she found the time to do that but it was the best surprise to walk into after a long day. Here we are a year later and my husband and I agree that while there are a few things we would have done differently, hiring Tionna is not one of them!!Sent on 10/27/2019
