Amazing Wedding Coordinator! Monica was seriously soooo helpful in making our wedding a success!! We had a DIY venue, and Monica's experience was imperative to executing our event smoothly. She had thought of so many things we wouldn't have thought of (outdoor outlets, ceremony turnover?). I am beyond impressed with her attention to detail and thoughtfulness in event execution. She was extremely organized and kept us on track in the planning process. [and this is coming from a bride and groom that love Asana and Airtable]

Monica’s thoughtful, innovative and detail-oriented touch was the backbone in making our wedding truly one of a kind and unforgettable. We resonated with Monica’s vibrant energy. Our regular brainstorming sessions were full of creativity and Monica would always take initiative in making our values, ideas, desires, themes, and goals a priority in every step of her coordination. She would always bring to the table complementary ideas from her loads of event planning experiences. She was hands-on when ordering supplies, helping us make personalized handmade giveaways, creating lovely signage with her calligraphy, décor preparations and supported us tremendously when doing the night before the reception décor set-up. Of course, not to mention the day of coordination! She knew our wedding day and set-up like the back of her hand. She ensured that the day of the program was smooth, on point and worry-free for the bride and groom. It was so easy and a lot of fun to work together with Monica. She is definitely a team player and also takes on much responsibility independently, which is much appreciated especially when the bride and groom are also busy! Communication streams are constant, smooth and easygoing. Monica made herself available for us when we needed to get planning and implementation milestones done! Monica is a gem. We cannot praise and recommend Monica enough for her creativity, motivational spirit and hard work that was central to our soulmate party!

Monica was incredibly engaged throughout the planning process of our wedding. She wanted to understand our wedding vision and communication style so she could have a solid foundation going into the day of the wedding. She is true pleasure to work with and very open-minded and flexible. We had 2 ceremonies, dueling pianos, a DJ, photo booth, cocktail and dinner receptions and she stayed on top of the various logistics, and vendors, not to mention family members and guests. We received so many compliments on Monica’s positive attitude and engaging personality from guests and vendors. She’s resourceful and isn’t afraid to roll up her sleeves. She helped us create some impromptu signs and kids menus that turned out very cute. I loved her creativity and initiative. On the day of my wedding, I felt at ease knowing I was in great hands with Monica. I highly recommend Monica for your wedding coordination needs!

From day one, Monica is so incredibly helpful, informative, organized, and ready to get to work! Beyond that, she is very knowledgeable and can help any bride plan the perfect day—whether you know exactly what you want your day to look like and have thought through every little detail or don’t even know where to start. She has a wealth of knowledge from her work with her clients that she brings to the table, and makes sure that you have thought through everything—even down to the last napkin! If you are a bride in need of a planner that will make your planning process stress-free, look no further.

Monica helped our big day go smoothly and as planned. She helped with last-minute decorations, loaded her car to bring materials to our venue, and helped our timeline go off without a hitch! She was available for e-mails and calls throughout the planning process and helped my husband and I map out our wedding day. Having Monica there throughout the process took a load off of our shoulders and we were able to enjoy our entire wedding day!
