Over and Above...Beyond our expectations!Simona is a true professional with a heart of gold....It is difficult to put a value on the work and stress that Simona saved us from start to finish. Simona's experience, guidance, knowledge and calm demeanor was invaluable to our wedding planning. Nothing was impossible; everything was doable.With Simona's help, we were able to put together a flawless event in 2 months on a scale that would take most people 6-8 months. The attention to detail ensured perfection; nothing was forgotten. Simona was on top of every task and detail, and given the extreme timeline with a lot of moving parts, this was impressive. Certainly top of class and all with a smile.Many of our guests described our evening as magical. A million thanks to Simona and her team!!
Simona is the best wedding planner! After trying and failing to plan my own wedding three times (each time attempt was cancelled due to money issues, family issues, and pandemic issues), I finally hired a wedding planner. I'm soooooooo happy that we found Simona! She is friendly, efficient, knowledgeable, and just generally awesome. From day 1, Simona was on top of everything, asking us specific and relevant questions, pointing out what we needed to do ASAP and what could wait, asking us about details that I hadn't even thought of, communicating with all the vendors, and staying on top of everyone - vendors, bride, groom, wedding party - to ensure that the wedding went smoothly and happily. Everyone told me how awesome Simona was, including my hair and make-up artist, DJ, and mother - none of whom are easy to impress. Simona was with us every step of the way. When I had a disagreement with the DJ two days before the wedding, she found us someone new. When I texted Simona on the morning of the wedding to say I was panicking about my hair low lights, the potential for rain in the forecast, and my lack of sleep, Simona wrote back right away to say that my hair artist would emphasize my highlights, Simona would get me an espresso, and she got another tent delivered within the hour. Even as I write this, my sister is commenting that my wedding would have completely fallen apart without Simona. I recommend her 1000%
Simona was incredible!! Without her, our wedding day wouldnt have ran as smooth as it did! She made sure that everything ran on time, coordinated our family photos, dealt with anything and everything that came up (including a surprise performance!), made sure that we were eating and much more! All of this really contributed to a successful and stress-free wedding day!Aside from the day of the wedding, Simona also met with us a few times in the weeks leading up to the big day to ensure that we were on top of everything. She provided helpful checklists to aid with this part as well! She was also more than happy to answer any questions we had (and we had a lot). On top of that, Simona met with us for our rehearsal and helped lead that along with our officiant. She took notes throughout the rehearsal so that she could direct our parents, bridal party, and us on the day of, which was really reassuring!Simona also worked on our day of schedule with us. Once finalized, she sent it out to all of our vendors which was extremely helpful as timing questions always come up leading up to the big day. Simona was also our representative for any last minute questions our vendors had which was extremely valuable to me as I only had one person to answer to.My husband and I cannot say enough good things about Simona. Our wedding day would not have been as amazing as it was without her. Not only is she super adaptive in her approach, she is also genuinely invested in and cares for her couples! She was more than just a day of coordinator. She was the piece that held everything together! She really reduced our stress in the weeks leading up to the day and provided us with solutions whenever we ran into issues.Future brides and grooms really underestimate the number of small details and stress that starts to creep up leading up to the day. As an organized and detail-oriented person who thought she can handle it all, I am telling you that it gets overwhelming no matter how prepared you think youll be!! Trust us, hire Simona. She is worth every penny! A wedding day with Simona as your day of coordinator will 100% result in a successful and stress-free day. It really allowed us to enjoy our day without being concerned with the logistics of the event.P.S. My husband was against getting a day of coordinator for the longest time. After hiring Simona and seeing her in action, he constantly stresses the importance of getting a day of coordinator to all of the future brides and grooms that he meets.Eda & Ilan
We weren't sure if we needed a day of coordinator but are so happy that we decided to get one. Simona and her assistant were amazing. Throughout the entire night they made sure we had everything we needed and that we stayed on track with our itinerary. They made the entire night go smoothly. We would highly recommend Simona and her team for your next event!Ellen & Paul
If you want peace of mind, Amazing collaboration and just someone AMAZING that puts you first, look no further. Thanks to Simona I had the most amazing experience for the most important day of my life! Simona worked tirelessly to help make sure everything was planned properly, executed perfectly, and most of all, made sure my bride and I were never stressed out. I have to say that thanks to Simona I was able to let go of the stresses of planning a wedding and of dealing with last minute inconvenience. Simona, thank you for everything that you did and thank you for making my most memorable moment of my life one that was filled with nothing but joy and happiness!!!
