We cannot say enough great things about Darcie. At first my husband thought it was a "waste of money" to hire a wedding planner. But we are from downstate so I knew I needed someone who knew of people and vendors in the local area and I found Darcie! From the start I knew she was going to be perfect. She was great at organizing, listening, providing excellent recommendations and as the days got closer, she simplified and uncomplicated the few things that were very stressful to me. We had a two day event in Frakenmuth (ceremony Friday, reception Saturday) and she was amazing and a lifesaver through it all. It was Snowmagedon weekend and I had one really important vendor cancel on me. Darcie didn't contact me but contacted my mom, so I wouldn't get stressed out. But she didn't stop there, she found a friggin solution! So by the time I heard of it she had already arranged a different, local vendor to take the place of the cancelled vendor. That alone so was amazing and worthwhile to me. She also has an extremely calming yet strong presence about her. Everyone knew she was in charge yet loved the heck out of her. Every question we or my mom had, she had an answer or a solution. She was 10000% accessible throughout both days. And she was so incredibly attentive. Every time my drink got low, I appeared stress, or I was needed somewhere, Darcie was there. At the end of our second day my husband went up to Darcie and said, "look, I was not into this whole wedding planner thing, but we honestly couldn't have done it without you" and I couldn't agree more. Thank you so much Darcie for all that you did for us leading up and during our weekend. It was so stress free and put together. We love you and will miss you!!!!
Darcie is absolutely amazing! She recommended almost all of my vendors to me and they were all too notch too. I cannot recommend her enough- she made my wedding the best day of my life and took care of everything so I could relax and enjoy. Best thing you can do for your wedding or event would be getting Darcie involved.
Darcie is a beast. I mean that in a good way. She will take everything off of your mind and make the day everything you dreamed. Best choice I made after picking the groom.
Glad I chose Happily Ever AfterReviewed on 6/08/2012 Kara C
My husband and I chose to use Happily Ever After Events for our wedding. We went with a package that included an initial sit down, unlimited phone and email through out the planning process, and coordination for the rehearsal and day of the wedding. We worked with Darcie. Darcie was a joy to work with, she responded to emails, phone calls, and text messages promptly. She recommended great vendors which was really important to us since we didn't know the area where we got married. The rehearsal and the complete day of the wedding and the reception went off without me knowing about a single problem. Darcie was available for my guests to ask questions and was the go to for all matters the week leading up to the wedding. I had more stress from work than I did about my wedding. Over all- I would use Darcie again to plan a party in that area of the state.
Wouldn't go with anyone else!!!Reviewed on 7/26/2011 sJennifer O
Darcie Johnson is on it. She is a nononsense, get it done gal who is a lot of fun! She had us at every spot we needed to be on time. She also spent two hours on the phone with me prepping to make sure everything was just how I wanted it!
An absolute MUST!Reviewed on 7/25/2011 Kelly P
I hired Darcie for the day before and the day of the wedding. I had so many ppl tell me it was silly and that I had friends to help me. HOWEVER... It was the BEST decision I made in the entire wedding planning process. So many brides say they don't remember their wedding day bc it went by so fast and they had so much to do. But with Darcie I didn't have to worry about a single thing. From the ceremony to the cake cutting she had everything under control. At the reception she would come up and tap me on the shoulder and let me know what I had to do or what dances were coming up. I was able to really enjoy and take in our day. Darcie has many different packages to use from planning it all to just being there the day of the wedding! Either way, just think that the sole reason she is at the wedding is to make sure everything goes perfect and that's it. Mom's and bridal party don't have to worry about meeting the florist or make sure the cake got to the hall on time. It's all in Darcie's hands and she is absolutely great at what she does. I even had guests compliment how nice of a job she did!!
