Sometimes in life you are fortunate to meet some really special people. Gabi Sousa is one of those people. My wife and I were in desperate need of a wedding coordinator and we were lucky enough to be referred to Gabi. She turned out to be the best hire in our wedding. Gabi came... Read More in and planned/coordinated our wedding with just a week left before the wedding. It was not an easy job but she was able to step in with a week left and take control of our wedding like as if she was there from the beginning. Gabi has a special gift of connecting with the couple and feeling like she's part of the family. So if you're looking for someone that is easy to work with and does a great job in organizing/planning/ keeping everyone in line with the timeline then Gabi Sousa is the person you need to hire. My wife and I now consider her a friend. So if you are having trouble finding a wedding coordinator look no further then Gabi Sousa. Our wedding was unbelievable and the best day of our lives and we both know that a huge part of that was because of Gabi and her staff. Thank you again!

All I can say is wow! I was not sure what to expect when hiring a coordinator, and Gabi blew my expectations out of the water.
