Phillipa is "PH"ANTASTIC!!

Reviewed on 9/24/2015

I was in my friend's wedding earlier this year and I am not joking when j say it is the best wedding that I have ever been to! We kept saying Phillipa (pronounced Fill-ip-a) is fantastic the entire wedding day. My friend is from Venezuela and is Jewish. There are so many... Read More religious and cultural traditions and Phillipa was an expert on all of them. She also seemed like she was everywhere at the same time- checking on us getting our hair done while checking on the groomsmen pictures and at the same time in the ballroom making sure set-up was running smoothly. I know she assisted my friend in menu selection, the decor, the band.... Everything! She also had so many small details worked into the night from custom ties for the staff serving the food to props for the Hora Loca and Photobooth. I can't express how amazing the wedding was and Phillipa deserves the credit. Now I just need to get engaged so she can be my planner!!

Planning a wedding is a huge task but Phillipa really made it look easy while exceeding our expectations. There was no detail she didn’t think of, and she handled the logistics with such efficiency that we were able to just enjoy the day. For anything that came up she was... Read More prepared and proactively communicated with everyone involved so that everyone was able to execute their part flawlessly. Phillipa started as our planner but by the end she became part of the family and we are so grateful to have had her with us every step of the way.

Phillipa and her team were great to work with! She worked with me 6 months out, working on details and dealing with family at times. We became very close during the planning process and I don't think our friendship will end with the wedding! She was very reasonable in what was... Read More worth the price and what was not. She was familiar with many of the vendors I hired, which made coordination that much easier. Anything that seemed excessive, she was thoughtful enough to make it elsewhere or have it outsourced. Her assistants Ratchel and Brian were also great and were a huge help the day of, it really was a perfect event. If you hire Phillipa, she won't just be part of your wedding day, but a part of the family.

Phillipa and her team did an incredible job helping me create the wedding of my dreams. As an out of town bride I needed a planner that could handle all of the details and final preparations that needed to be done. Phillipa went above and beyond - turning her guest bedroom into... Read More my "welcome bag studio." Everything was executed perfectly I and no detail went unnoticed. My wedding was 5 months ago and I am still getting compliments on how beautiful and fun my event was. Needless to say - I would recommend Phillipa and her team to any bride knowing she is the best of the best.

Phillipa is a fantastic planner!

Reviewed on 9/23/2015

I was not a bride who had thought much about what her wedding day would be like so when it came to planning I felt totally lost on where to begin. A friend referred me to Phillipa and she was so great to work with! She really spent a lot of time talking to me about expectations,... Read More what really mattered to us on the Big Day, the esthetic and "vibe" we wanted to achieve, etc. She was super patient with me (and my future mother-in-law!) and she came up with a lot of great little details to impress our guests at the reception. At first I thought hiring a planner was going to be an unnecessary expense but I feel like I saved so much time and stress outsourcing the logistics. She was also super responsive to my crazy texts and emails as we got closer to the wedding day, which I really appreciated and helped keep me calm! In the end, I had SO MUCH FUN on my wedding weekend and that, to me, is priceless.

No Hassle Wedding

My best friend Katie just got married to the love of her life Ben, and Phillipa was the wedding planner. She's not your typical planner in the sense that she already knows what you need! All those annoying little details that usually pop up during a wedding had already been... Read More discussed with the bride, and of course the bride's mother, so day of everyone could relax and enjoy the moment knowing it was all being handled. She was nice, funny and was always around the corner with a glass of bubbles for the bride. I don't have a groom yet, but know that I'll be using Phillipa for my own wedding when the day comes!
