We love Without A Hitch
We simply can’t thank Allison enough. She was such a phenomenal support to us. Having her there made us so much more relaxed - we knew we were in great hands. We really appreciate all she did for us, from set up, to clean up, to dress bustling, and rain plan adjustments. It was so wonderful walking into our hotel room at night to find all of our things. And on top of all of it, she was just a great calming presence. We'll be recommending her for years to come. Many many thanks.Sent on 07/04/2019

Skeptical at first, but delighted!
My partner and I weren't sure if we needed a coordinator for our wedding. On the day of, we were glad to have Jessica to help us. She was an absolute delight, and it let us focus on each other instead of on the planning once the big day arrived. I highly recommend Jessica and the whole Without a Hitch team.Sent on 08/07/2019

Must-Have day-of wedding coordinators!
My wife and I hired Without a Hitch for wedding day-of coordinator services for our June wedding, and we cannot thank Jessica and Sarah enough for their tremendous effort. We were especially impressed at our first meeting, during which Jessica and Sarah dove right into the nitty-gritty wedding details to hammer out a timeline, consolidate our vendor list, and identify gaps (and due dates) for the remaining items on our list. Week after week, Jessica checked in to gauge our progress, keep us on track, and answer our numerous questions. On the day of the wedding, Jessica shepherded us, our families, our guests, and our vendors to help things run unbelievably smoothly. We had assembled detailed plans for the reception venue layout and decorations (e.g., guestbook photos of wedding party and family members, lawn games, etc.), which Jessica expertly executed to make the evening memorable and beautiful. We especially appreciated Jessica's openness to extend her contract by an extra hour to help us round out the celebration and oversee cleanup.Sent on 09/09/2019
Overall, our experience with Without a Hitch was fantastic, and we highly recommend their services to anyone getting married in the Boston area!

The best way to have a stress-free wedding
We worked with Without A Hitch to coordinate our June wedding at the Charles River Museum of Industry. Sarah and Jess P are, in a word, AWESOME. They were kind, knowledgeable, incredibly organized, and excellent communicators throughout the entire planning process. During the rehearsal and on the day of the wedding, my husband and I were able to totally relax because we knew that Jess was running the show - she coordinated with our vendors, made sure we ate, pulled us where we needed to be at the right times (photos, first dance, speeches, etc), and was just a phenomenal support - many of our vendors also told us they really liked working with her. Hiring WOH was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding, and I cannot recommend them enough!Sent on 07/23/2019

Amazing experience with Kathryn and the team
This company is great! They made planning my wedding so much easier. We worked with Kathryn and she did a great job on the day of, coordinating every thing so well that I didn't even notice what was going on. Strongly recommend hiring them for your big day!Sent on 04/27/2019

Kathryn was my day of coordinator for my February 2019 wedding. I'm SO glad I ended up hiring her. All of the pre-planning that needed to get done was made so much easier with her. The day of my wedding I just had to get married. Kathryn literally took care of every single thing that needed to get done. My wedding went off perfectly and it was all thanks to Kathryn!Sent on 03/30/2019

Amazing Alisha and Without A Hitch!
Alisha from Without A Hitch helped my husband and I plan our December 2018 wedding, and we couldn’t be happier with the experience! From our first phone call to our hug goodbye, Alisha was everything we wanted from a wedding planner. Over several months, she effectively organized our online documents, schedule, and vendor information, keeping us on track leading up to our big day. She reached out to vendors the week before our wedding to ensure everything ran smoothly, and did it ever! Alisha handled everything the day of so effortlessly, including a minor hiccup with the boutonnieres which went unbeknownst to the wedding party, making my husband and I feel so relaxed and calm on our wedding day. She was also the first one to send us a few wedding photos she snapped throughout the night! We had guests commenting on how beautiful our space was, how smoothly everything ran, and how much fun they had, all of which were thanks to Alisha’s expertise, direction, and support! We could not be happier with our choice to go with Alisha from Without A Hitch!Sent on 03/10/2019

BEST decision we made for our wedding day!
Simply put: Without A Hitch Boston was the reason my wedding day went as smoothly as it did. My husband and I had an intimate wedding (90 people) at a brownstone and a restaurant in Boston. We didn't think we needed a coordinator and weren't sure we wanted to spend even more money. As the wedding approached, we realized we needed a little extra help and reluctantly searched for a day of coordinator. Without a Hitch came highly recommended from our restaurant venue. We met with Sarah and Alisha and instantly knew their service was worth every. single. penny. I know what you are thinking: ' oh, we don't really need a coordinator...my cousin can do this or that...' Let me tell you right now: If you want to enjoy every minute of your wedding and let your guest do the same, you need Without A Hitch Boston. I was amazed at Alisha's skills during my wedding and even more amazed after when I heard the little stories of ways she helped when we were busy enjoying our day. Bottom Line: Every family member or friend who said "oh you don't need a coordinator" made a point to tell me after our wedding "THANK GOODNESS YOU HIRED WITHOUT A HITCH!" Best decision we made for our wedding day hands down! Thank you Alisha and Sarah!Sent on 08/04/2019

Without a Stress
My husband and I hired Without a Hitch for our fall wedding at the Whittemore Robbins House. After hearing about the benefits of having a day of wedding coordinator from several newly married friends, we decided that we wanted to make our day as stress-free as possible. We found Without A Hitch on Instagram and noticed they had a HUGE following in the Boston area and had even coordinated weddings at our venue!Sent on 02/18/2019
After speaking with Sarah, we were sure that Without a Hitch would help us feel much more in control of our day. We were able to meet with Sarah and Jess in person, and they provided us with a super detailed timeline of our wedding and numerous practical tips for choosing vendors and general logistics. This meeting made us feel good to know that someone would be available for guidance over the next few months.
We appreciated how Jess and Sarah regularly checked in to see how the planning was going and provided us with vendor recommendations (flowers, desserts, table template) when we needed some suggestions. They also asked us questions that we never really thought about until they brought it up (i.e., what time will items be delivered, what is your clean up plan?). We also decided to extend our contract to have Jess help lead the clean-up process (which was completely worth it!). On the day of the wedding, Jess took the lead and helped the day/ night to run smoothly. This allowed my husband and me to be fully present with our guests and enjoy one another. We cannot thank Jess and Sarah enough for all their support! We recommend this service!

Without a Hitch Delivers!
We hired Without a Hitch in the last couple months before our wedding and were so grateful for their careful coordination of our vendors and all the details on the day of. Sarah and Jessica F. ensured that our timeline was rock solid and then delivered an impossibly beautiful day for both us and our guests. (Not sure they can be credited with changing the weather, but the clouds literally parted!)Sent on 11/12/2018
Jessica checked in with us regularly to ensure we had thought of everything and planning was moving along smoothly. We had Jessica do her walk through for our rehearsal so we could practice the ceremony processional and recessional, and she did a fantastic job wrangling our family and friends to get them ready for the big day.
Once the ceremony got started, we didn’t have to worry about a thing beyond being present and enjoying the ride, which is the best testament to how well Jessica kept things on track. We would hire Without a Hitch again in a heartbeat and recommend them to anyone looking for peace of mind leading up to their wedding!

A Beautiful Wedding Event

Without a Hitch made our daughter's wedding day a total
success. From the initial conversation with Sarah, our meeting with Sarah and Alisha, the rehearsal on Friday to the end of the wedding... and I mean the end... there was not one thing that was overlooked. Alisha portrayed professionalism, courtesy, respect and organization through out the wedding day. All of our guests were so impressed with how smoothly the day/evening went and Without a Hitch achieved that for us. We would wholeheartedly recommend Without a Hitch, without hesitation!

WithoutAHitch + Alisha are awesome!
Hiring WithoutAHitch for our wedding was one of the best decisions we've made. My fiancee and I had a crazy 1.5 years while also planning our wedding. Alisha and Sarah kept us on track, gave us advice when we felt confused/lost and executed a wedding day that quite literally went without a hitch. We were able to enjoy our wedding day and our guests because we knew Alisha was taking care of all the little details we had planned out and if there was a hiccup, she was there to problem solve and figure it out. Hire them! You won't regret it!Sent on 11/01/2018

Without a Hitch Review
We hired Without A Hitch for day of coordination of our wedding this fall, and it was the best decision we made during the planning process! They provided so much more than just day of coordination. Jessica was the reason why our wedding day went so smoothly (despite happening during a festival at the same time and location). She handled everything (e.g., timing, moving guests between spaces, etc.) so we could truly enjoy the day stress-free. During the planning process, Jessica and Sarah also met with us, provided us with a detailed timeline to fill in, checked in regularly, and were highly responsive when questions/concerns came up. Jessica also coordinated communication between our several vendors in the week leading up to/during the day of our wedding to ensure that everything went according to plan. We can't recommend Without A Hitch highly enough!Sent on 12/02/2018

An essential help for planning your wedding
Jessica from Without a Hitch was an absolutely incredible help while planning our wedding. We dragged our feet about hiring a coordinator and didn't end up hiring Without a Hitch until a few months before our date. Jessica jumped in and really helped get everything in order. She answered endless questions and helped fill in lots of gaps we didn't know we had.Sent on 12/16/2018
She was also incredible on the day of. We had a vendor that was a mess and she handled it perfectly. She resolved issues so quickly and cleanly we didn't even know there were any until after the wedding. Can't recommend them enough.

Without a Hitch was fantastic! We worked with Sarah and Jessica leading up to our wedding, and they were responsive, wise, and fun the whole way. Our venue was completely DIY and had no staff, so Sarah and Jessica provided us with a VERY detailed and comprehensive to-do checklist. They checked in periodically to make sure we were on track - they were so encouraging but also shot us straight and told us how and what to prioritize. The were professional, but also gave us insider tips about how to work around certain logistics. Not once did they say "no" to any of our ideas - they just explained why certain things would be difficult, and always provided alternative ways to execute them. We've never thrown am event like this before and they gave us SO many pro tips - many, without which, we'd have been totally screwed!Sent on 10/13/2018
Jessica was with us day-of and was excellent. She seamlessly stepped into the scene and ran the timeline and flow, which was not easy since we had to corral our guests to 3 different spots on the venue property throughout the night. She paced the ceremony and was the point-person with all of our day-of vendors and guests. Everything went so smoothly (I literally didn't lift a finger the day- f). We had one scafu with our bartenders, and Jessica took care of it so quickly that we were barely aware.
Special thanks to Jessica for keeping tabs on our less mobile guests to make sure that they were comfortable and taken care of - and for easing us into cocktail hour at a point where there wasn't a line for the bar (so we weren't mobbed). Hire them!!
Summer · Married on 09/01/2018
We worked with Without a Hitch for our small family wedding and they were wonderful. Sarah and Jessica's expertise allowed us to step back and relax (as much as possible) the week of our wedding. In addition, they were available throughout the preceding months to answer questions and advice (extremely helpful in the face of event-planning decision fatigue!) We can't recommend them highly enough for their experience, forethought, and positive energy. It was a joy to work with both of them, and to have Jessica join us for our wedding weekend. Thank you!Sent on 10/14/2018

We couldn't have done it without Sarah and Mandy at Without a Hitch! My partner and I got engaged in July and decided to get married some time the following summer—I switched jobs, the holidays came and suddenly it was February and we had almost nothing planned beyond a date and a tentative venue. We contacted Sarah in the hopes she might have hope and guidance for us—and boy did she and her team come through. Our first meeting with Sarah and Mandy was invaluable—we went in knowing almost nothing and left with a check-list and action plan for the months ahead. Even though they are "day-of" coordinators, they were absolutely instrumental in helping us plan everything leading up to the big day. They gave us tools and checklists and contacts... you name it. They were always available when we needed them and checked-in regularly to be sure we were on-schedule for getting everything done when it needed to be done (those helpful nudges we needed as to avoid compromising by having to rush things later). When it came to the big day, oh man, let me tell you I'm still in awe at how perfectly everything came together! We were actually able to REALLY enjoy our wedding (and I'm a super control freak, so being able to actually be hands-off that day was something I don't even think I really expected). In the end, we had probably ten+ different vendors all from different places and Mandy pulled everything together like they were an in-house team. I sit here today two weeks after our wedding and am still in awe at how absolutely perfectly everything went. I can't recommend them enough! Do yourself a favor—enjoy your wedding, hire Sarah and her team.Sent on 08/12/2018

Without a Hitch is an aptly named business -- because that's exactly how our wedding went off! It was actually funny when we discussed the wedding with a friend later. She did not know the name of the company, and actually said "yea it seemed like it went off without a hitch!"Sent on 09/16/2018
But seriously, working with Alisha and Sarah couldn't have gone better. They only do day-of coordination, but they provided us with a to-do list early on in the planning process. They checked in a number over the next year, ensuring we were making progress, offering their suggestions, and just trying to be helpful. We honestly were very busy in the year leading up to our wedding and it would have been a lot more hectic without Alisha and Sarah checking in with us. They provided reassurances when it was necessary, no-nonsense suggestions and tips when we were clueless, their timeline/to-do list itself was really helpful from an organizational standpoint too.
Honestly, despite all of that, leading up to the wedding you do sort of feel like "wow this was a really expensive to-do list." But on our wedding day (and the day before), Alisha proved how wrong that sentiment was. She really was incredible. She seemed like she was always in exactly the right place at exactly the right time, she pitched in everywhere, had a can-do attitude, and we really couldn't have done it without her. We had numerous guests comment on how competently and professionally she orchestrated the day, and that coming from guests who are just along for the ride! For us and our parents, all we know is we didn't have to worry about a single thing. We are truly grateful to have had Alisha there for our wedding day, and would highly recommend her, Sarah, and Without a Hitch to anyone.

Everything was fantastic! The planning sessions ahead of time kept us organized, and they were always incredibly friendly. They were always positive, fun, but also pragmatic. They were willing to execute on whatever plan we wanted and had plenty of recommendations to make sure all our plans ran smoothly. They had worked with some of our vendors and our location, which made planning remotely much easier!Sent on 08/21/2018
We got to spend the whole time talking with guests and enjoying the day. Kait and Elaina handled all the random things that came up perfectly and had great communication with us. I really felt like they listened and were absolutely ready to roll with all our crazy gambles in terms of the ceremony and all the moving parts. We really appreciated that they asked us about the important calls and made a bunch of calls on the small stuff for us. They had back up plans for the back up plans! We really got to enjoy our wedding day!

I cannot recommend Without a Hitch strongly enough. Sarah was our day of coordinator and she was incredible. She has a calm and kind demeanor and is very attentive to every detail. She has a very special way about her that allows her to get people to do what needs to be done without anyone ever feeling bossed around or managed. The vendors, family, wedding party and most importantly me and the groom loved working with her. Definitely the best money spent on the wedding. We didn't have to worry about a thing on the day of. I only worked with Sarah, but I have no doubt that all of the coordinators who work for her are wonderful as well.Sent on 07/03/2018

Mandy helped us out so much throughout the entire process and especially on the day of the event. We could not have had such a great day without her and Without A Hitch because they made it so we didn't have to do anything besides enjoy our big day.Sent on 11/25/2018
The name really does say it all for them as our entire wedding day went off without a hitch. Would absolutely recommend them if you need assistance!

Working with Without A Hitch was such a delight. From the very beginning stages of wedding planning Sarah and Alisha were so helpful. Their timelines had everything noted minute by minute and they kept careful track of all the little details. The email updates and reminders from Alisha (our day-of coordinator) were great in keeping us on task. The day of, my husband and I didn't have to worry about a thing because all the moving parts were under control. I would highly recommend hiring WOAH if you are getting married at a place with many vendors and/or if you easily get stressed planning events. They will help ease your anxiety and make your wedding day go super smoothly.Sent on 02/22/2018

Sarah really was my lifeline for our wedding day. If I could pay her to run my life, I would do it. We hired her over a year out from our wedding and she was worth every penny we spent, just in the therapy she provided alone! I am a very intense person, but had never thought much about my wedding so there were days when I would send laundry lists of questions and Sarah was always so quick to respond (and reassure me!). Sarah is very VERY experienced and a logistics genius and talked me out of a handful of ideas that if I had tried to execute would have made no sense and made me insane. I had already decided on several of the vendors I wanted to hire and Sarah had already worked with everyone local. They were all genuinely friends and I loved my crew of vendors so much I want them all to be my real life friends, too. As far as the vendors that I had yet to identify, Sarah had a great list and everyone she recommended was amazing - in price, quality of service, and of general awesomeness. Don't be scared to talk budget with Sarah. Part of what you get with her is her deep knowledge about the industry, which includes various vendors for a variety of budgets. She can help keep you on track and find someone who is the right fit for you. My biggest wedding regret is actually not asking her more! On the day of, she made sure that my southern manners didn't get in the way of my enjoyment of the day by fussing over everyone so I didn't have to. I found out about so many things that she took care of after the fact -- a real testament to her diligence and her ability to make sure that no little hiccup trickled up to me and my husband. Sarah truly got our wedding off "Without a Hitch;" there was not a literal or hypothetical hair out of place. I could not recommend her more enthusiastically.Sent on 03/21/2018

I hired Sarah Narcus from Without A Hitch for day-of-event coordination for our daughter’s bat mitzvah this past December. Three things I appreciated most about working with Sarah: 1) Sarah always made herself available by phone or email to answer any questions I had. 2) She was also more than willing to share her list of vetted professionals be it a caterer, photographer, DJ, florist or balloons, and I used several of her suggested vendors. 3) Sarah was extremely organized and made our special day go very smoothly.Sent on 02/08/2018
Sarah maintained the master schedule/timeline and made sure we had all of the questions answered prior to the bat mitzvah so that everyone was clear. In the end, we had a really amazing team of people to work with, and the event went off literally “without a hitch.” I would not change a single thing. Everything was perfect! Best of all, when the day ended and we said goodbye to our guests, Sarah handed us our car keys, and she had packed literally everything, flowers, gifts, décor, etc in our cars, and we were on our way. It was a pleasure working with Sarah and I would highly recommend her and her team.
Katie · Married on 11/04/2017
Alisha and Sarah were a dream to work with from start to finish. As a professional event coordinator myself, I was thoroughly impressed with every interaction we had - they were thorough, quick to respond, and had terrific recommendations (like our furniture vendor, which was half the cost of others we received quotes from). They came prepared for meetings with an incredibly detailed timeline, kept us on track throughout the (long) planning process, and handled the wedding day with ease. We had a few nontraditional expectations (no dances, for example) which they rolled with with ease and also gave context around the cues that come from those traditional aspects and suggestions for how we could cue people without them. Alisha happily carried every single bridal party member's handbags while giving cues, making sure people found their seats, and ensuring we were sticking to our timeline. Having Without a Hitch at our side made our wedding run smoothly and was the best wedding planning-related purchase we made.Sent on 09/08/2018
