I was all set to get married at the Omni Amelia Island on October 8th, but Hurricane Matthew had other plans. The Amelia Island resort evacuated us to the Omni Orlando and put us in touch with Lexie at Blush. To say that I was stressed was an understatement, we had three days...

She contacted all my vendors and found replacements for those who couldn't make it to Orlando. In three days Lexie did more for me than my previous wedding coordinator had done in a year. You would have never known that my wedding was planned in three days and that was 100% because of Lexie. She kept me calm and organized and I would have never made it through the day without her. She was the epitome of professionalism but was fun and enjoyable to be around. I cannot say enough amazing things about Lexie and I am forever grateful that she was there to help save my wedding!!

Over the past two years, I have hired Brandee Gaar to coordinate 2 large weddings in my family. Not only is she approachable, reasonable and sophisticated, but she managed these two elaborate events, from start to finish, with professionalism, taste and the highest level of... Read More accomplishment. Most recently, I put the execution of my daughter's wedding at the Four Seasons Resort in Orlando, Florida, solely in Brandee's capable hands... including a complicated hotel contract covering hundreds of rooms and multiple days of parties, floral/draping/lighting needs for a décor theme so demanding that it required immense creative vision, vigorous negotiation, mulit-vendor coordination, bravado and over 22 hours of onsite, through-the-night, set up. She brought me vendors of the highest caliber and oversaw dozens of custom-made pieces of clothing and art, countless special requests, last minute emergencies and the needs of over 40 international guests. As a result, our event was a masterpiece. Brandee Gaar is a rock star and any of you considering her, or her firm, for your wedding will be nothing more than thrilled with the result.

One of the packages that comes with booking your wedding at Reunion Resort is a day-of wedding planner from Blush. Right from the start, I was connected with Kyle. She reached out and let me know what tasks she would take care of and made sure to let me know that if I had any... Read More questions to let her know. Throughout the wedding planning process, there were several times I reached out to ask her for vendor suggestions and she immediately responded with a list of people I could contact. For wedding specific questions, she provided suggestions based on things she had seen at other weddings and her own personal/professional experience. About a month before the wedding, we skyped (I was planning from Boston) and went over all of the big and smaller details. She literally thought of everything, making the process so much easier for me. After talking to her and realizing how wonderfully organized she was, I asked her if I could pay an additional fee to have her at our wedding ceremony at Holy Cross Church. At our rehearsal, Kyle was so friendly, on time, and made sure that everyone knew exactly what they were doing. Having her there left me feeling so calm for the next day. The morning of the wedding, Kyle arrived early and collected everything she needed for the reception. She was just amazing. She made sure everyone was ready-to-go and stuck to the schedule we had created together. She took care of EVERYTHING without me even having to ask her any questions. During the reception, Kyle kept us on schedule, but made sure we enjoyed EVERY SECOND of our wedding. There are not enough words or ways for me to express how highly I recommend Blush, to more importantly, Kyle for any wedding planning you'll need. She will make sure your day is a dream come true.

Hiring Blush for my day-of-coordination was by far the best decision I made for my wedding. I was very hands-on during the planning process of my wedding and did a lot of things myself.

She was always prompt with answering my questions and easing my fears— no matter how silly they seemed to be. Ali was full of amazing ideas to make our wedding day special and unique. She took all of my dreams and visions, enhanced them to make them even greater than I could have imagined, and brought them to life. She also referred us to the most wonderful team of vendors! Every recommendation Ali made was a great one! I went into my wedding day 100% worry free (which is a big deal for me— as I am a worrier by nature) and trusted that Ali would handle everything and make it perfect. Ali made sure everything was flawless on our wedding day. If anything went wrong I definitely did not know about it. Ali handled every situation calmly, gracefully and always had a smile on her face. Ali knew exactly what was important to me and advocated on my behalf as if it were her own wedding. I literally could not have planned my wedding without her. If you are searching for a wedding coordinator I highly recommend you stop looking now because you won’t find anything better than Blush! Thank you Blush, and Ali, for creating a wedding that exceeded my dreams!

We booked the mid-level planning package with Blush, and we couldn't have been happier! I live in DC, my then-fiancé lived in New Jersey at the time, and we were planning a wedding in Central Florida (where I'm from), so we really needed help with all of the logistics. Abbey,... Read More our planner, was AMAZING! I can't say enough wonderful things about her. She was an absolute joy to work with and thought of every little detail to make my wedding day completely wonderful. I'm a pretty organized, type-A person, but Abbey is on a completely different level when it comes to weddings. She thinks of everything, from the perfect rain contingency plan (which has to be just as lovely as the non-rain plan) to where your gifts will be stored during the wedding itself to making sure you have a great "exit" planned. Furthermore, Abbey coordinated with all of my vendors - they worked together seamlessly, and Abbey made sure they were 100% on time. She also took care of things like loading my personal possessions and our gifts into the "getaway car" so we didn't need to stop to do that at the end of the night and returning our cake tray to the cake baker so we didn't need to do that the next day. Honestly, if you are carefully researching planners (which I understand, since I spent hours doing that myself last year), then you can stop right now, because you won't find a better planner than Blush. Or Abbey. I can without hesitation say that the best money we spent from the entire wedding was on Blush, and the most fun I had during the planning process was during my planning pow-wows with Abbey. She is phenomenal. Thank you, Abbey and Blush - it was my dream wedding!

After researching planners for a while, I read through many reviews, got in touch with different companies, saw real wedding pictures and decided to go with Blush by Brandee. It was hard to get a hold of them at first, but eventually Brandee contacted me and we were able to... Read More set up a plan. I was living outside of Florida, so worried that I wouldn't be able to do much planning for our wedding in person, I wanted to rely on someone who could design and plan our day for us. We were assigned to Abbey. Our initial meeting went really well and promptly received an email with a list of vendors. I was under the impression that wedding planners would be much more communicative and involved in all the options I was looking for. When I asked questions, I barely received any answers from Abbey so I was confused as to what services I had signed up for. I thought paying 3500$ would cover many services since we were not in Florida and needed someone who would do things for us, but in the end I felt like I could have just gone with a Day of Coordination Package for the help that I eventually got. I definitely feel like I went with the wrong package and overpaid for the services received. I was only recommended vendors, which I could have just found on sites like the Knot or Wedding Wire in the end. My groom tried to make me feel better by telling me that they would probably make the real difference the day of the wedding. We had a second meeting with Abbey a month before the wedding, and she went into all the details. She said she would adjust a few things and helped us decide on a few loose ends and take over, so in the end I was much more calm and relieved of all the stress. She said she would be in touch with all vendors and send everyone a timeline. As days went by, I was getting nervous as I didn't hear back from Abbey and had to pay all the final contracts. Some of the vendors were asking me if they were going to receive the timeline for the wedding 1 week prior, and also inquired as to who our coordinator was as they were still not in touch with her yet, so I was confused as I thought this would have been taken care of already. When I inquired, she promptly sent us the timeline, but it had other people's names on it, and stuff was not according to plan... On the day of the rehearsal and wedding, Abbey was unable to attend due to sickness, so Brandee was there to cover for her. I was in part a little worried as I didn't know how much Brandee knew of all the details we went through with Abbey. But the day of the rehearsal went really well. Brandee went above and beyond expectations, so we were all super relieved and happy about how it all turned out. The day of the wedding, Brandee also took care of us, we were very happy with the overall result, but I think I would have liked to have had more time to discuss plans and go over smaller details like I had with Abbey since she was the one who knew us and went over everything way more in depth because it was important to us, and I had really planned everything months in advance. Even though some things weren't according to plan, we were definitely happy with the final result.
