Great & helpful!
Month of Coordination
True Mate does it all!
Her vendor contacts were amazing and I would recommend each one.
Gael coordinated everything perfectly every step of the way. She kept everything within budget while staying true to my vision. My guests have been telling me that they're honestly surprised to have actually attended a perfect wedding!
Most Reliable Day of Coordinator!!
Gael was great!
She helped coordinate the rehearsal so everyone was on point. And was very flexible when we needed to meet and go over things.
When she set up our personal decor is was amazing! Exactly how I envisioned it and for that I was thankful. Her assistant on the day of was also great..and for a venue neither one had worked at before you couldn't even tell. They worked well with all of the other vendors and kept everything running smoothly!
She even serenaded a song for us which was an unexpected bonus!
Highly recommend her services.
