I was one of those lucky Spring 2020 brides. When Covid hit the fan, we went ahead and got married in April 2020 without any family and a total attendance of 8... including us. We pushed the party out to April 2021 and went about our newlywed q...
uarantine. That was the first postponement.
By December 2020, I realized I would have to postpone again. I confirmed a date for April 2022 with the venue and went through the rounds of calls, schedules, contract updates, etc. Now I'm an organized person but after postponing twice, having to switch some vendors, moving out of state, ordering a THIRD round of save the dates... let's just say I was not having fun anymore. I realized I needed to find a Cincinnati Wedding Planner to help me pull it off
Luckily, The Factory Events had De Evans on their recommended vendor list. The staff raved about her and I loved her from our first conversation. She is professional, friendly, and impeccably stylish. I honestly wish I would have let her design the whole damn thing but I was 2 years deep so oh well.
De scraped together my notes and documents, listened to our visions and input, made excellent suggestions when I got lost and with a little bit of magic- we finally had us a party. De dealt with coordinating vendors in the weeks leading up to the event. She kept everyone informed of the schedule and then kept everyone on it. She reorganized the ceremony at the last minute when we had VIP guests cancel (due to COVID) and managed a new layout on the day of when rain was imminent. She handled emotional family and rowdy groomsmen with poise and grace. She even peeled all the stickers off our favors because that's the level of detail she achieves. I know she did more but I didn't see because I was too busy dancing the night away while she handled business.
If you are in need of a wedding planner in the Cincinnati area, I cannot recommend Deanna Evans enough. Even if you think you have it under control, hire her anyway so you can actually enjoy yourself.
TLDR: Hire De. She is an angel.
