    Higher Sandra- you need her!

    Sandra was phenomenal! I am a pretty organized person, who hates asking others for help. I also struggled with trusting someone with 'my vision' but every interaction we had with Sandra left us feeling so reassured. For some parts, I left extensive notes/ pictures and she was happy to follow. For other parts, I left little details and let her decide what looked best and she did a great job! She has great ideas and solutions to everything. On the day of the event, she practically became part of the family- everyone loved her! She managed the flow so well and continued to check in with me to make sure I didn't need anything at all. I would HIGHLY recommend Sandra! And suggest every bride NEEDS a day of coordinator. We had a small wedding with only 20 people, and it was still crazy how many little things need to be done on the day. Sandra took care of every single one of them and I felt at ease because she is so lovely. Thank you Sandra!

    Amazing coordinator!

    Sandra and her team did a great job coordinating our wedding. She took it on short notice (less than 2 weeks before the big day) and went above and beyond in helping with last minute decoration ideas, setting up everything and coordinating the night, and cleaning up at the end of the night. I don't know what we would have done without her, she helped make everything run smoothly so we didn't have to worry. Highly recommend!!

    The MVP of our Wedding!!

    Hire Sandra, just do it! You will not be sorry. My now Husband and I cannot even begin to explain how amazing Sandra is! She did absolutely everything, from keeping us calm and on time, to setting up our dream wedding. Our big day went off without a hitch and we both honestly believe this was mainly due to having such an amazing coordinator.

    Excellent experience!

    Our venue required us to have a day-of-coordinator and we really thought we didn't need one! Once we we started working with Sandra, we realized how much knowledge she has and her many suggestions, tips, tricks were so so helpful. Sandra's calm but enthusiastic energy just makes you feel like it's all going to fall in to place - and it will :)

    She was great to work with through the pandemic, has very reasonable rates, and knows exactly what to do on the big day. Thank you again, Sandra!

    Day of Events is fabulous!

    We could not have asked for a better wedding coordinator!! Responsive, knowledgeable, and executed our vision perfectly with very strong work ethic and passion for seeing our dream come to life. We are so happy with how our day turned out and we'd recommend them to anyone!

    100% would recommend to everyone

    I'm not sure there are enough words to tell you how amazing Sandra was as our Day-Of Coordinator. She was incredibly organized, professional, and made sure that our day went off without a hitch. Not only did she do all the set up for our event, she also coordinated every single aspect of our wedding day with such precision. From controlling our music, to setting up the reception tables, everything was even better than I envisioned. Not only that, she was also the MOST REASONABLY PRICED Day-Of Coordinator out there. I have no hesitations recommending her to other couples and would hire her 100x over again. Thanks for everything Sandra!

    Day of Events's reply:

    Thank you so much Sabrina & Mike! You two were an ABSOLUTE pleasure to work with :) I loved every moment of your special day!

    A million stars!!!!

    If we could put a million stars beside this name, we would. When we first got engaged, we weren’t sure what we would need a wedding coordinator for as we are generally organized people. The answer is that you need her for everything. From the first day of wedding planning, Sandra was attentive, organized, enthusiastic, and supportive. We worked with her for almost two years as she guided us through multiple pandemic changes and kept us calm and relaxed throughout the process. She made insightful recommendations and helped us stay within our budget. She was extremely helpful in recommending trialed and tested vendors.
    On the day of the wedding, I was convinced she brought a doppelganger. She was everywhere you needed her to be. From picking up flowers for the ceremony to awaiting guests at the church and ensuring everyone was inside and ready for when we made our entrance. We were able to enjoy our ceremony and take photos in peace as she escorted guests out of the church and prepared for the evening at the reception. Our party favors, guest book, and seating were handled by her, and any small hiccups we had she quickly smoothed over. Our guests absolutely loved her as she was consistent in her kindness and enthusiasm throughout the night. She brought tissues before the first tear dropped, adjusted seats when people wanted to sit together, fixed my dress, and told the photographers exactly what shots needed to be taken. Most importantly she allowed us to be present at our own wedding and enjoy every moment with our family while she handled the details.
    Overall, the experience was exactly what we hoped for and so much more!! If you are looking for a coordinator look no further than this one, there is a reason why she has such amazing reviews. We love you and thank you for making our day a magical one!

    Quality Service

    Sandra was a pleasure to work with planning our wedding. Her expertise, organizaitonal skills, attention to detail and poisitive attitude was a huge benefit to us! We were so grateful to have Sandra work with us planning the wedding to being part of the wedding day. Having her taking on the responsibilities of wedding event made the event special and worry free. A quote from Sandra on the day "we've got this" made us realize we made the right decision in hiring her. Thank you Sandra!
