The Ultimate Impresario! We had a wonderful experience working with Zerlene as our wedding planner! She worked tirelessly for a year and a half to help us plan, design and execute three wedding events over two weeks. We truly could not have done it without her.

Zerlene encouraged us to be ourselves, to be comfortable, and to have fun during the planning process and our wedding events, all while providing exceptional service and professionalism. She helped us balance multiple family traditions, religious and cultural backgrounds, while planning a wedding that truly reflected us as a couple and facets of our individual personalities. When we found ourselves stuck on specific details or encountered logistical/scheduling dilemmas, she came to us with viable options and solutions and worked with us to solve any problems that arose. Furthermore, she answered and followed up on any and all questions we had.

Zerlene has a project management background which helped keep us on schedule, on budget, and factored in all the moving parts for the scheduling and itineraries of our events. She checked in with progress updates and at times gave us necessary “reality checks” which helped us to prioritize our needs and wants…to the point of us at times making difficult but necessary decisions. It is so easy to get caught up on minor or specific details; Zerlene helped us to see the big picture. She kept us focused on items or vendors most appropriately suited to our budget and needs that could also give us what we wanted. We never felt pressured to create “her vision” to advance her career or to get her work in a bridal magazine. Her work is worthy and is of that calibre, but our wedding was important to her because it was important to us.

Zerlene streamlined the legwork we did to seek out vendors so we wouldn’t be inundated and confused, giving us a short list to initially contact and consider before moving on to others. She attended vendor meetings, and reviewed or helped negotiate every contract. She is experienced, well connected, has a growing number of contacts in the industry, and works well with other vendors. The result? Beautiful, memorable, well-coordinated and executed events filled with subtle, special touches our guests continue to rave about!

It was so much fun to work with Zerlene because of the energy and creativity she brings and the passion she has for what she does. She helped alleviate the stresses of wedding planning, particularly when things did not go according to plan. No one had any idea that things were not all as they should be, such as when one of my bridesmaids could not attend last minute due to illness and my father could not walk me down the isle because he got hurt an hour before the ceremony. She thought quickly on her feet and adjusted the procession, thought of a way for my dad to give me away how he could, ran last minute errands when items were misplaced or forgotten, and worked with us and the officiant to contingency plan and tweak the ceremony if necessary.

We look forward to working with you again for other events and won’t hesitate to recommend you! You are a truly gifted, organized, experienced, efficient, proficient, creative wedding planner and a consummate professional. Our wedding was better because you were an instrumental part of it. Your presence truly added something special to our day. Thank you so much, Zerlene, for helping us create wonderful memories we will cherish for years to come!

Sincerely,
Sophie and Doug Myles

Zerlene helped to make my wedding day go as smoothly as possible and made sure I was completely taken care of. She covered every detail and had the utmost professionalism and attention to detail. I would highly recommend her to any bride. She co-ordinated with all my other vendors and took care of things I didn't even think of. She is professional, friendly and hard working and I am so happy I decided to hire her for my day of coordinator.

First off I have to say, Zerlene was an absolute godsend! My husband and I got married in mid-September of last year (2017) and the wedding turned out to be everything we wanted it to be and more. I am a registered nurse and my husband is in construction; finding the time between us to plan was difficult to say the least. But having Zerlene there every step of the way made what seemed impossible within reach. She was on top of things from our very first meeting and came with everything from a budget, suggested venues to fit our hollywood theme and a timeline. She made herself available via email, telephone and was present in person when we needed her for vendor meetings and the rehearsal. Leading up to the wedding day she helped keep us on track with to do lists and called each vendor to confirm arrivals, drop-offs and final details. She also made the wedding day run smoothly; communicating with vendors and venue staff and handling surprises with ease so we could enjoy our night. Zerlene is extremely organized, pro-active and in-tune with her clients needs. Aside from that she is extremely kind-hearted and passionate. I cannot thank her enough for making our big day such a success.

When my husband and I first got engaged, we wanted a destination wedding but wasn't really sure where to start. So, we spent some time online looking for a wedding planner and stumbled upon Zerlene. After reading several pages of positive reviews, we reached out. Zerlene made herself available right away to meet with us and discuss our vision. She did a great amount of work upfront - provided us with destination and resort options, weather forecasts, wedding package and cost comparison charts, etc. She was on top of all the details and always made herself available to discuss them. 


A few months later we needed to change our plans and keep the wedding local. Although a big change in direction, Zerlene immediately started sending us local venue, vendor, and costing options to get the ball rolling on the new plans.


Throughout the whole process, we very much appreciated Zerlene's industry knowledge, reference documents, check-lists, check-in calls, reminders, recommendations, and suggestions. It was really great to have someone managing all the details and timelines, as both my husband and I were extremely busy with work.


We also had Zerlene and her assistant for day-of coordination and everything ran smoothly. We were able to relax and enjoy every second of our wedding day without any worries. 

Aside from Zerlene’s hard skills, she is such a lovely person and we're so glad to have had her by our side throughout the whole planning process and on our special day.

Zerlene is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is detailed, organized and very professional which helps to ensure drivers are provided an accurate outline of how the day will run.

Zerlene ensures all itineraries are provided well in advance and communicates all changes with the booking agent so we are all on the same page.

We look forward to working with Zerlene in the near future.
