We used the Full Planning package from 1928 and were delighted with the service we received. Danielle jumped right in and starting getting things done. She was extremely responsive to all of my questions (there were a lot) and emails and remained professional through it all....

I would recommend 1928 Planning over and over and OVER again. We got to work with Hannah, who literally made our wedding experience the best ever. Looking back, I could not imagine planning and having a wedding without her. She responded timely to every email and met with me... Read More every time I was in town from Arizona, no problem. Hannah always made me feel like I was the only wedding she was planning and the only wedding on her mind (even though I knew she had so many on her plate). I was concerned with how everything was going to come together, with all of the little details we had planned, and Hannah put everything together just how we wanted, no questions asked. She also ran our rehearsal which we are so thankful for or else it would have been chaos. I really cannot say enough good things. You can't put a price on peace of mind before and on your wedding day, 1928 is WORTH IT!

We hired 1928 Planning Co. for day-of coordination, and it was honestly the best money we spent! I am super organized, but Danielle’s organization and professionalism put my mind at ease the months leading up to to the wedding, and definitely on the day-of. We had a meeting with... Read More Danielle about two months before the wedding to go over logistics, and she had a whole document put together that I filled out with vendor, timeline, and decor information. This helped me make sure my ducks were all in a row, so when it was time for her to take over, I could just enjoy the day! She allowed not only me, but also my family, to not have to worry about set-up or clean-up and to just soak in all the moments together. The decor she set up was even better than I imagined it would be, and she made sure we were on time and knew what we were doing. I have nothing but good things to say, and recommend if you are thinking about hiring a day-of coordinator, DO IT! Especially if you hire 1928, they are worth every penny!

Hannah was absolutely AMAZING! ever since my husband and I got engaged a year ago and booked 12 corners vineyards the 1928 team was constantly in communication and guided us through the whole process.

Quick responses to emails and they give you steps you should be doing every month or so. BOOK THEM!! we had an absolutely perfect experience on our wedding day because of their hard work. We we're so happy we bought the ceremony package because Hannah ran through the ceremony at our rehearsal and then also the day of was so stress free for me and my husband because she led it all. Also, we were so happy we bought the clean-up package too because no one had to stay for clean up afterwards which again was super stress free. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

I used the day-of coordination package, and couldn't be happier! Danielle is a seasoned professional, and thought of every single detail. I felt very prepared for the big day, well in advance thanks to her excellent organizational skills, and foresight. Danielle has a calm and... Read More relaxing demeanor, and presented confidently.

My fiance and I didn't think about, text about, or talk to anyone about wedding details for our Saturday wedding from Thursday evening onward. With 1928 as our day-of coordinator, we knew things would go smoothly, so we were able to be fully present and truly enjoy time with... Read More friends and family - exactly as it should be! Danielle and her team are a solid choice for planning in SW Michigan - upbeat, reliable, and talented. My only feedback going forward is that, as another reviewer noted, the day-of coordination 'homework' packet was quite an undertaking and created some redundancies between vendors. I would have loved to have 1928 build on materials we already had. That's a minor piece of feedback, though, for an overall great experience with this committed team - thanks, 1928!

They were absolutely incredible start to finish! We went with white space events at 12 corners vineyard with 1928's base planning package included. The only thing we added was a fire pit rental and ceremony package. Beginning to end I had a hands on planner answering every... Read More question I had over email.. We planned out of state and without even meeting before my wedding date (Though we did have at least 3 phone conversations) as well as emails they pulled off our wedding day flawlessly. There isn't one thing I would change. They even drove our handicap guests so they didn't need to travel over grass. I would recommend them to everyone! If that was the base package I can't imagine how incredible their additional planning packages are! All of their rentals are super adorable, trendy and affordable as well :)

Camille and her staff worked hard at every detail during the wedding, even down to packing up our dinner and saving us several of our desserts for our hotel room. The perfect touch. She also looked like she enjoyed her job and had a good time during our event. We used the day of coordinator with the ceremony package. This was perfect us! If you need or want someone to contact vendors for you for your wedding then spring for the other coordination packages, we didn't think it was necessary! The online worksheets that we filled out kept us on planning track and let us plan with all of our vendors the perfect day. We had our wedding at The Veranda which we also highly recommend. Life savers!! 😊

I thought having a day of coordinator would make my life less stressful, not more stressful. We were asked to fill out pages and pages of questions, many of which were irrelevant to our event. When asking for advice from our coordinator on certain questions we were told "it... Read More doesn't really matter, it's up to you". Many of the questions pertained to our vendors and we felt as if we were the middle man. Instead of the coordinator contacting the vendors directly, she would contact us, we would contact the vendor, the vendor would contact us, and we would contact the coordinator. We felt as if the coordinator should be in touch with our vendors, rather than putting us in the middle and creating more room for confusion. Our coordinator was also not very flexible. We were told when signing the contract that we were allowed unlimited meetings with our coordinator. We lived out of state and every time we tried to set up a meeting with our coordinator, she was too busy. We were very frustrated by the end! It was really nice to have someone present on the day of to set up and take down all of our DIY decor. It was also nice to know that someone else was there to make sure things went smoothly. The day after our wedding we were upset to find all of our DIY decor thrown in boxes and not wrapped or protected the way we had provided it.

We got married at Hidden Vineyard Wedding Barn in Berrien Springs. For anyone in the area, I HIGHLY recommend the venue--it is magical. We met some of 1928 staff at a bridal expo and were SO IMPRESSED. I cannot praise HannahB. and the entire staff enough for their incredible... Read More work! We opted for the day of coordination package and added on some furniture rentals (which were amazing). Every step of the way, Hannah was communicative, friendly, and organized. She had a perfectly planned out timeline to make sure that everything fell into place exactly as we had envisioned. Our wedding was the most beautiful, romantic, fun day--and I have endless gratitude to 1928 for all of their hard work. They went ABOVE AND BEYOND to help set up the venue for us, dealt with all of the vendors on the big day, kept the day running so smoothly, and packed up our cars (with centerpieces, decor items, gifts, etc.) at the end of the night. We did not have to lift a finger or worry about a thing. I would recommend 1928 to anyone who wants to have the most perfect wedding day (or any event)--it was easiest, most carefree and joyous day ever! The 1928 staff were so detailed oriented--they thought of absolutely everything!!! To any bride planning a wedding in the southwest michigan area, I know you will be thrilled if you work with 1928! It was the best decision I made for our wedding.

We worked with 1928 Planning Co. for our Vineyard wedding in Southwest Michigan this June, and Hannah Bunch was our coordinator. She was an absolute delight to work with. Hannah was laid back and responsive, and handled any questions or issues that came up with such grace.... Read More She also made my vision come to life with her and her teams' decor setup with little to no direction in some aspects. I planned the wedding from Virginia, where I now live, so it was so comforting to have someone so competent and helpful like Hannah to work with when planning from a distance. Their built in services that came with our venue were generous, but we upped the package to include ceremony coordination & decor as well as reception cleanup, and we would do it all over again! Well worth the upgrade to have the piece of mind that every little detail is being taken care of. I would recommend 1928 services to any bride in the area - you won't be disappointed!

Hannah and the 1928 Planning Co. team are outstanding! Coming from the perspective of a groom they were essential to not only my mental health but the overall success of our wedding I have a bit of a different philosophy on weddings from most.  In my opinion they are more of a... Read More starting line (one of many) in your life not "The Most Important Day in Your Life".  Sure you want to be fully prepared for the race/day but when you add up the flowers, dress, dinner and music you only equal an event but what the event means is so much more.  Its about how my wife and I met, not about how the food and drinks were at our wedding.  It's about how everything that could have gotten in our way over the past 10 years, didn't. A wedding day is a single instance which was developed by other instances during the journey you and your significant other took to get to where you are today. That said without Hannah and the 1928 Planning team, we would have never made it to the finish line on that day. Our wedding planning began over a year out and was nothing short of a journey itself. Along the way there were so many things that Hannah did which I will never know about but I think one of the most important details is that she is level headed. With all the moving parts on your wedding day, when you can confidently hand the reigns over to someone else and not have to worry, it makes for a world of a difference. If you want to free yourself from the stress, pressure and unpleasantness of planning a wedding, work with Hannah. To put it simply… Hannah took the dream of a perfect wedding day and made it possible and successful.

1928 Planning Co was the best decision I could've made for our wedding. I really liked the planning and had a lot of fun doing that so we just went for the day of coordination.

The day of the wedding was so much better with Danielle helping us. She kept us on schedule without being pushy and helped get everything working. She set up the room even better than I had imagined, transported things from the church to the reception and then was there to help us when we arrived. She found us when we were distracted with our guests to remind us of things like cutting the cake, father daughter/mother son dance, and even tore down some tables before all of the dancing began. All in all, if you are considering a coordinator, whether that's day of or full she-bang, 1928 is where its at. I couldn't be more thankful!
