I knew from the moment my now husband and I started planning our wedding that I wanted to have a wedding planner/coordinator, but was not sure if we 1) would be able to afford it, and 2) if we could find someone who would support what we envisi...
oned our day to be like, a D.I.Y vintage-themed wedding at the Winter Park Farmer's Market. We went to a couple of wedding/bridal shows and received information from multiple wedding planning services. We met with numerous planners, including Jaclyn from At Last, who was actually the last planner we met with. From the moment we met with her we were instantly impressed. She had a name tag on, which may not seem important, but after going through multiple meetings where you awkwardly scan the room trying to figure out who you are meeting with, this struck us as very professional. She came prepared to answer all the questions we had. We loved that At Last provided services which could be tailored to any budget. For us, we chose the "day-of" coordination. This name is happily misleading, as At Last was not just there for us the "day of." They were available for any questions I had, and it should be noted that when I emailed them with a question, they promptly responded back. Additionally, they provided emailed check lists to keep us on track of what needed to be taken care of and when. Those checklists were invaluable. Jaclyn and her crew handled our rehearsal, so that we were comfortable with what would be happening the next day and the ceremony, etc. After the rehearsal they had the task of taking all of our decorations, etc, to be delivered to the venue the next day. They took the time to go through every box so that we could discuss what things were for, where they would go, etc. I felt so comfortable and assured that I would show up on the big day and everything would be just as we had imagined it. All I can say is that we were NOT disappointed. More importantly, Jaclyn and her crew took care of everything that day. If there were any problems, I never knew about them. What bride could ask for more?! The guests kept commenting on how relaxed I seemed and I kept telling them it was all thanks to At Last. I am not someone who likes to give up control of things to others, but this was one time that I was happy that I did because without At Last, our perfect day would not have turned out just that...perfect! Thank you At Last and thank you Jaclyn for making our day one we will never forget!!
Two final notes:
1. Take advantage of their recommended vendors. We did and were not disappointed. The vendors even commented on how much they liked working with At Last.
2. If you are planning your wedding for a Saturday at the Winter Park Farmer's Market, you would be foolish not to include At Last as this venue has major time constraints and At Last was so familiar with this and made everything happen in a short amount of time.
