Having Alisa as our coordinator was the BEST decision we made for our wedding! Alisa is a lovely person a very talented event coordinator. She really listens to what you are saying when planning and she has this calming and gracious demeanor that makes it easy -even for a... Read More control freak- to trust her with your big day.

Hiring Alisa as our DOC was the best wedding decision we made. She was an absolute life saver on and prior to our wedding day. Her attention to detail was impeccable, and she asked questions that I hadn't thought of before (and I'm pretty OCD). She even read through our vendor... Read More contracts and caught little stipulations that I hadn't, like what size tables we needed to provide for the DJ, etc. Alisa was thorough and timely in helping us create our super-detailed wedding timeline for the rehearsal and the wedding day itself. She made sure to confirm all arrival times and details with each vendor during the week of the wedding, which was a HUGE time saver and stress reliever for me. On wedding day, Alisa helped move our timeline along without being bossy or rude, as I've seen other coordinators do. She took charge of seemingly trivial tasks that mattered to me, and she handled every thing I threw her way with grace and a smile. My now-husband described her as our "happiness insurance"- we chose all of the vendors we wanted and did the bulk of the planning, but Alisa was there to insure that we were actually happy with how everything came together and could relax and enjoy our wedding day. She is the absolute best!

As we approached our wedding day on October 1st I was starting to get very anxious about the logistics of the day - I had planned most of the details on my own and wanted to make sure everything went off without a hitch, but I also wanted to be able to enjoy the day without... Read More having to run around and make sure all of the tiny details were in place! So when Alisa reached out to us about day-of coordination in late May, it wasn't long before we were signing the contract. The day was absolutely perfect, and it's hugely thanks to Alisa! She handled every detail from set up to tear down and worked gracefully with all of our other vendors to make sure that the day went according to plan and according to our timeline. We were truly able to relax and enjoy the day from start to finish because we had total reassurance that Alisa was taking care of everything. You can tell she loves what she does and enjoys working with people - she's great at it! Do yourself a favor & hire Alisa - I guarantee you it'll be one of your best wedding investments!

If I didn’t have Alisa my wedding wouldn’t have been the same! She went above and beyond to make sure everything was what I wanted. And I’m picky. She did such a nice job in every situation, I can’t thank her enough. If you don’t book her, your missing out. Seriously.

I don't know what I would have done without Alisa! She is worth her weight in gold! I hired her as my day-of wedding coordinator, and I cannot say enough good things about her work.

I cannot express how grateful I am/was to have Alisa there on my wedding day. She was on top of absolutely everything and made sure I was relaxing and having a good time. I am your typical "control freak" bride. I had everything planned to the "T" and I wanted to do everything... Read More on my own so that I knew it would fit my vision. However, after meeting with Alisa and talking with her over the planning period, I learned that I could trust her with everything. When I showed up to our venue on our wedding day, Alisa had everything under control, she greeted me and surprisingly, I was at ease. I did not feel the need to check on anything or even leave the bridal suite. She kept me updated and prepared. She kept everyone on task and made sure that any "could be" issues were resolved. When I saw my reception area, I was floored. I know she put so much time and effort into putting everything together and it looked incredible. Our wedding day flowed so effortlessly and I can truly say it was because of her. When it came time to clean, up, she was running around taking care of everything. She even managed to help me change out of my wedding dress at the end of the night. You might not think you need a wedding day coordinator, but I can assure you, you do. It is one of the best investments you can make in your wedding day. Thank you Alisa! <3

I was hesitant to hire a day of coordinator for our wedding because like most brides, we were on a budget and we did not think it was worth the expense.
