We had originally booked Rebecca as our Month of Coordinator in 2019, for our original wedding date (June 13 2020). However, like most couples trying to get married in 2020, COVID had other plans, which resulted in multiple postponements (4x) throughout the year and a half (we finally got married in August 2021). As we started to work through our postponements, Rebecca super accommodating throughout and checked in every once in awhile to see how we were doing, and to see if she could help. As a COVID bride/groom, we really appreciated this and it really made us feel like we were supported. Not only was Rebecca thoughtful and considerate throughout, but once we finalized a new (and our final) date, she was able to work with us on a less then 4 week turnaround time, which was incredibly helpful, especially when it came to working through all the final details that we had completely forgotten about. Rebecca is super organized, detail-oriented and diligent with her scheduling and when it came to day of - she was able to adjust as needed. Weather was not on our side on our wedding day, and we were really behind schedule, but Rebecca made sure we kept moving and got what we needed to get done, done. We would certainly recommend Rebecca to anyone that is considering hiring a month of coordinator or planner. My biggest advice as a bridesmaids, prior to being a bride, was hire (at minimum) a Month of Coordinator and now as a bride, I can 100% stand by this statement. I promise, she WILL make a difference.
We are so glad we hired Rebecca to coordinate our wedding. Our wedding was an intimate, non-traditional and mostly DIY affair, but Rebecca made us feel like our wedding was just as special as any ultra-fancy, expensive event. She is extremely detail-oriented and very organized, and managed to make a very complicated event come together expertly. On the day of the wedding, one of our vendors messed up (to put it mildly) and Rebecca handled it with professionalism and calm. She and her team were able to pull everything together for us so that no one knew what had happened and we could have a wonderful time. We are very grateful for Rebecca's help with our wedding, and we recommend her highly.
Rebecca is the first and only planner we met with. We hired her for day-of wedding planning, and it was easily one of the best decisions that we made as it really allowed us to just enjoy the day without worrying about any of the details. In fact, there was a major glitch that happened during set up, but we and our guests were completely unaware of it until afterwards. Rebecca is highly attentive, responsive, and an incredible resource overall for bouncing off ideas and vendor recommendations. She went above and beyond with us in several ways (visiting the venue in advance, meeting with the family in advance to explain details, and just being all around extremely helpful). I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
From day one to the end of our wedding night, Rebecca was a complete dream to work with. We asked her to help plan our whole wedding and in hindsight, it truly would not have been possible without her ideas, her organization, and her execution skills. She listened to what we wanted for our wedding and found us a venue that would capture our industrial, moody, romantic vision. She designed style boards to inspire us and narrow down the decor and florals we liked, and kept in contact with those vendors. Most importantly, she kept my husband and I on track with planning as we also juggled busy jobs and schooling. On the big day, Rebecca made our vision come true down to the smallest details (to my pleasant surprise, as there were definitely things I had forgotten to even communicate to her)! Most importantly, if there were any hiccups, we didn't know about it or notice -- she made sure that everything went smoothly. We feel that Rebecca took the time and care to really understand what we wanted for our wedding, and we're so happy we trusted her with it! Thank you so much!
It was such a pleasure working with Rebecca! We hired her as a month of coordinator and she did a great job coordinating our wedding this past July. She is very detailed, organized, knowledgeable and professional. She listened to our vision and had a lot of great ideas and suggestions. She eliminated the stress on my fiance and I by communicating and handling all the final details with the vendors, creating a detailed schedule and overlooking the setup that day. She didn't miss a beat. Everything was executed beautifully and ran smoothly with her assistance. She went above and beyond and even helped me find a florist for my bridal shower to fit my budget. Thank you so much Rebecca!

Rebecca is a caring wedding planner full of ideas, style and professionalism. Her attention to details, large or small, creates a stress-free environment for any discerning couple. I recently performed a wedding at Malaparte with ridiculously high force winds. Rebecca made wise plans ahead to deal with these heavy winds and not have them effect the wedding day. She handled it very well! Not an easy situation. Well done Rebecca!
