INCREDIBLE!!! This vendor works there butt off to make your day perfect
Thank you Anita and her team for making my wedding a dream come true.
The best coordinator you could have in your corner at your wedding
Where do we even start with Anita?! She’s a literal superhuman in so many ways. Last year my then fiancé and I decided to hire a coordinator for our wedding to help ease any stress I knew I would face as I’m such a perfectionist and want to make sure everything went smoothly for our wedding. I found Anita as she worked with the venue we had booked back in 2021 for so many years and no one knew that place better than she did. And boy, am I glad we did. We clicked instantly from that first phone call and my fiancé and I were underway into planning our wedding.
My unexpected (but ecstatically happy) news about being pregnant ten months before our wedding date threw everyone a slight curveball (still a fun phone call hahaha). But, Anita was amazing and helped guide me into planning our wedding that we decided to not push and still continue - our little star was just going to be a part of our special day. We managed to get the majority of our wedding planning done before our son was born because of Anita, as she wanted me to enjoy being a mom once my son arrived, and once I have birth, the stress levels leading up to our wedding were not as bad as I thought it would be since we had gotten everything almost all done. Even the week before the wedding I had been, in my opinion, the chillest bride lol and that was all because of Anita and her kicking me in the butt to get things done beforehand!!
The day of the wedding with a lot of things going on there were some issues but like I said, she is literal superhuman and is absolutely the best as she made sure everything went well - I wasn’t worried at ALL with her in our corner and everything worked out. Her and her team made our day absolutely perfect and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a coordinator for their wedding. Any worry, any thought, any questions or concerns you could have about your wedding she is always there to ease your mind and help you through it. You will not be disappointed!
Anita, you know I absolutely adore you and we are so eternally grateful for what you have done for us the last couple of months and the support you have shown us. We have been so lucky to have you be a part of our special day. Thank you so so much.
The best vendor i ever purchased!
Such an important person to have in your corner!
I really needed her expertise and confidence to pull off our day, especially as our wedding was an outdoor one in one of the rainiest summers we have had for ages! She saw the vision, protected it and helped make it a reality. I felt like I got to be a bride on the day because she took so much of the work off my shoulders and I knew she had it covered.
So happy we had her with us!
The best coordinator around
Anita - thank you for everything you have done for us over the past few months, and especially on our wedding day. We appreciate you more than words can say! You are more than just an incredible coordinator, you're an amazing person and we are lucky to have had you be a part of our wedding day!
Lives up to her company name!!!
Your Fairy God Mother
Best Decision Ever
1. Hire a Day-of-Coordinator. Hiring someone there specifically to help you manage your time and handle all the little details is so important - let's be real, your friends and family will have full plates too and they should get to enjoy themselves.
2. Make Anita that Day-of-Coordinator. I can't even put into words all the little things Anita and Nadia did to make our day go smoothly. They helped lay down some of the décor items and personal touches in our reception space, they helped manage our timeline and our first-look before our ceremony, and somehow took care of all the moving parts and people to have a successful wedding.
You can tell Anita is so passionate about what she does, her goal was to help me achieve my wildest dreams and boy, she nailed it.
