Alison Watkins, I knew you were great when we hired you, but I had no idea just how magnificent you were at your job until about a month before our wedding, and of course on the day of your talent spoke for itself. Not a single detail was overlooked, and the entire day flowed... Read More seamlessly. Really you were like a little wedding fairy sent from heaven to make sure our big day was PERFECT! Being out of town, our in person contact was somewhat limited, but you were always professional and reassuring. You were able to take our taste and our vision, and put everything together in the best way possible. You killed it! I'll never forget the feeling I had leaving your office about a month before the wedding, because literally everything I had written down to fill you in on that was important to me, you already knew and were completely on top of it. When you explained to me your understanding of what I wanted, it was better than how I could have explained it myself! Our wedding was the best day of my life because I married the person I love more than anything, and you went above and beyond to make it that much more special. From the bottom of our hearts, Thank you.

From start to finish, Blush by Brandee was the single greatest decision we made when making our wedding plans.

From start to finish working with Blush was amazing! Responsive staff, appropriate amount of time between correspondence, and attnetion to detail. Alison was my day-of-wedding planner and she was PHENOMENAL! Despite the name "day-of" she was corresponding with me since we signed... Read More the contract about 2/3 months before the wedding. She was friendly, organized, professional and was a wonderful source of information throught this process. I cannot express how invaluable her aid was to our event. The calligrapher doing the place cards and table numbers for our wedding changed her company name halfway through our exchange and went MIA! I was in a panic! Alison stepped in and played the part of P.I. and somehow managed to find the vendor under her new name. Her ability to keep me calm and keep all the moving parts of this wedding together was amazing. She worked so well with all my other vendors and was even able to resolve a little mishap with one of my signage vendors. She kept me and the rest of our family on track the day of---i swear shes got magical powers--because she would just pop out of nowhere to gently remind us of timing and order of events throughtout the night in the least overbearing way possible. She made the right call when rain was forecasted for our ceremony and had to be moved indoors. Everything turned out beautifully and im so thankful to her and Blush for all of their help and hard work. Huge thank you to Alison and Blush for making one of the happiest days of our lives unforgettable!

We had Ali as our wedding planner and chose the design and coordination package for our January wedding at Bella Collina. We started off the planning for our FL wedding from Texas (we managed to move back to FL 3 months before our wedding) so our initial planning meetings were... Read More over the phone. Ali was always super accommodating, and took the time to meet with me when I was in town. I am terrible at making decisions, so I was honestly dreading most of the wedding planning details. But Ali knew exactly how to present things so that it wasn't overwhelming. She would suggest and recommend things when she could tell I needed some guidance, but was never pushy about anything, and I never felt rushed. The day of my wedding there was only supposed to be a 10% chance of rain, and our ceremony and reception were planned for outside. Unfortunately Ali had to inform me that there was some weather forming that may or may not effect our plans. And that I needed to make a decision of moving everything inside or taking a chance of keeping it all outdoors. She worked her magic with all of our vendors and the venue to make a new plan work, and the weather luckily behaved. Only I knew what our original plan was supposed to be, and guests had no idea that this was our very last minute back up plan, that ran so smoothly. Honestly, I am so thankful that the weather gave us that little hiccup, because I loved everything about our day, and it turned out even better than what I had originally wanted, thanks to Ali. There is not a single thing I that I would want to change! Ali was amazing!

I was all set to get married at the Omni Amelia Island on October 8th, but Hurricane Matthew had other plans.

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.

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.

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.
