We couldn't have done it without Zerlene and her team!
Selecting Impresario Events as our day-of-coordinator for our wedding was one of the best decisions that we made! Zerlene helped us build an extremely detailed itinerary for the wedding day and was very responsive to any changes that we made. On the day, Zoya and Karishma was present to help ensure that everything went along smoothly. When our entree was delayed, they took it upon themselves to coordinate with the serving staff, our DJ and MC to rearrange our itinerary to ensure that none of the speeches and activities are missed, and that all of the important moments would be captured by our photographer/videographer. Needless to say, the wedding went on without a glitch, and they made our happiness their top priority. I was extremely calm and relaxed knowing that I had them behind the scenes, and it allowed us to enjoy the wedding fully. I would recommend Impresario Events to anyone!Sent on 02/07/2019

I can’t even express how happy I am that we chose Zerlene and Impresario Events for our day-of coordination! I felt so at ease on my wedding day knowing that she and her assistants had it all under control. Zerlene was incredibly organized and her experience in the industry shows. She was in touch well before our wedding to put together a detailed itinerary and ensure she had contact info for EVERYONE involved. It seemed like a lot of detail at first (and a lot of things I wouldn’t have even thought of without her list) but it forced me to get organized and was an absolute lifesaver in the end. She connected with all of our vendors the week of, and if anything did run off track I honestly had no idea (which is exactly what you need in a coordinator on the most important day!). She ran our rehearsal, navigated some family tension like a pro and did an unbelievable job setting up our décor. Most importantly, she was cool and calm, and able to quickly adjust the plan on the fly. She knew our itinerary down to the minute so our MC didn’t have to watch the clock or worry about the added responsibility – she’d quietly cue the next item but it never felt intrusive. She is such a perfectionist that she even advised our MC to delay his next introduction or our meat would be overcooked! Our guests are still raving about the “perfect” beef tenderloin all thanks to Zerlene…she thinks of everything! Even our rental vendor raved about Zerlene, and was really impressed that she took the time to reach out to them in advance as not all coordinators go to this effort.Sent on 17/07/2019
I am still in shock that my wedding day went by with zero glitches and zero stress…you will NOT be disappointed with Zerlene on your team for your big day.

You will thank yourself later for hiring Impresario!
We are so happy with the service we received from Zerlene. She helped make our day truly wonderful, and the process leading up to it infinitely less stressful.
Vendors: Due to her extensive experience, Zerlene was able to recommend numerous vendors (venues, photographers, DJs, invitations, flowers, wedding dresses, etc.) that fit our wishes and budget for the day. Additionally, she was prompt to investigate new vendors we wished to investigate. I was truly impressed by the quality and caliber of professional contacts she had. It was also a huge relief knowing that Zerlene had previous positive experiences with these vendors – I didn’t have to worry about getting any less than expected.
Communication: Zerlene has excellent communication skills. She communicates very effectively and efficiently, and always promptly responded any questions or concerns we had. As an individual with a very busy schedule, I was very thankful to have a planner who was always willing to work around my schedule. While Zerlene is a very well established and busy planner – you will feel like her only client.
The Details: There are a lot of things that go into planning a wedding, many of which I would have never thought of. Thankfully, Zerlene is incredibly organized and experienced, so she ensures that every detail of the big day is taken care of. I honestly can’t stress enough how nice it is to not have to worry – “have I forgotten something”, because I knew Zerlene was on top of it.
Day-of: Our day quite literally went perfectly. I loved Zerlene’s organization day of the wedding because she ran the day from the background so to not disrupt your enjoyment of the celebrations. But she quietly kept everything moving perfectly on schedule. I know my MC’s were so thankful for her. They were able to celebrate and enjoy the night without having to watch the clock every moment as Zerlene would cue them right on time. Zerlene also has excellent taste. I left the table arrangements largely to her judgement, and they turned out beautifully.
Again, our day could not have turned out more perfectly, and the process was infinitely less stressful due to Zerlene’s expertise. I can’t recommend her enough!

Planning with Impresario Events
In February 2018, roughly 8 months out from my big day, I realized that I needed help planning my big wedding. I went on Google, not really knowing what or who I was looking for, and came across Impresario Event's webpage. After browsing the website for a few minutes, I knew Zerlene Mekdeci was the planner for me!Sent on 10/11/2018
Zerlene made the planning process so easy for me. She has a wealth of connections with many different vendors which made the dreadful process of finding and selecting vendors, easy and enjoyable for me, the bride! Zerlene has so many great ideas and tips that only someone with her knowledge and experience would know.
Zerlene was always available for impromptu telephone calls and via email. Her turnaround time on planning documents and questions was within 24-48 hours OR LESS, which is amazing seeing as she coordinates multiple weddings a year. I always felt comfortable reaching out to Zerlene for any question I deemed as "silly" and sometimes just to bounce ideas off of her.
On the day of the wedding while I was getting ready, I didn't have to worry about the church set-up because I knew Zerlene was taking care of it. At the hall, Zerlene was on the ball. She kept us, our parents and bridal party in line for the receiving line. Zerlene got us food off of our anti-pasto bar, coordinated with the MC and DJ to ensure our itinerary kept on track, worked with the kitchen staff, and so much more! She checked in with us to make sure we were okay. It was an amazing feeling to know that we had someone else on our team that day.
Thank you for everything Zerlene. Our guests will be talking about our wedding for years to come!

Best decision ever!!
I hired Zerlene after a short conversation on the phone. I got a good vibe right away. She understood my wants and needs for my wedding. She was more organized than I thought, I was always in the loop and never left unanswered. I had a high stress wedding with many expectations that had to be met. Zerlene made everything happen exactly the way I wanted it to. I had no idea which vendor to go to for everything, and everyone has so many opinions on where to get your dress to where to buy your cake. Zerlene made every step easy for me. I would highly recommend any bride to hire her.Sent on 01/11/2018

I truly debated whether or not I needed a day coordinator for my big day [I'm very OCD and control issues]. I hired Impresario and could not be happier with my decision. Zarlene and Glenda were absolutely incredible! They helped with all the last-minute details and truly made me feel comfortable in the midst of all my chaos. I cannot praise them enough for helping my fairytale wedding truly come to life. Thank you so much for all your hard work and help. Many guests complimented me on how organized and perfect the wedding day was and a HUGE part of this was due to my coordination team :) You will not be disappointed I promise you!!Sent on 25/10/2018

Couldn't be happier with Impresario!
I’m am so beyond grateful that I hired Impresario Events for month of coordination services. As both a budget-conscious and DIY bride, this is something I considered to be an essential cost so that my husband and I could enjoy our big day.Sent on 01/11/2018
Zerlene was AMAZING from the moment I started working with her – after our first appointment, I walked away feeling so at ease. While I was a very organized bride, there were so many aspects of the wedding planning process that I was unaware of, especially in the final month leading up to my wedding. Having Zerlene on my team really saved me a lot of time and money in the end, as she was able to flag potential problems early and find cost-saving solutions. She coordinated with my venue and vendors to ensure that everything ran smoothly both leading up to and on our wedding day. Her team also ran our rehearsal, which was SOOOO helpful. There were a million things happening during the week of our wedding, and planning for our rehearsal (which is much more work than it seems) is one less thing that I had to worry about.
We’re still getting feedback from guests about how well organized and smooth our wedding day was. Our day of coordinators handled everything – all I had to do what show up, get married, and celebrate. We really got to enjoy our day and not worry, which is how it should be.
I really can’t emphasize enough how awesome the team is at Impresario Events. I highly, highly recommend using them for your wedding!!

Just incredible to work with!
Zerlene was incredible to work with! She helped us with budgeting, figuring out vendors (even when we were being selective) and helping plan out our wedding schedule before the wedding. Almost any question we asked, she had an answer for and she kept us on top of our own planning and scheduling. During the wedding day, she and her team handled everything, including running out and getting more alcohol when we were at risk of running short! As soon as she arrived at the wedding venue, our stress levels completely dropped because we knew she had it under control. We'd highly recommend working with her and her team!Sent on 04/11/2018
