Sabrina was amazing!! Selecting our wedding planner was one of the most important parts of our wedding and we wanted to make sure that we found the best one in town. WOW, we definitely did!! Thank you so much, Sabrina, for making our dream wedding come true!! Sabrina was... Read More extremely professional, helpful, responsive, patient, detail-oriented, organized, and well prepared. She though everything through far before we could, and had any of our questions answered right away. She also has an amazing reputation with other wedding vendors- such as DJs, videographers, photographers, venues, etc. and because everyone loves her, they will often offer a discount because she is your wedding planner.

If you want a wedding of a lifetime. . . Book Sabrina before you read this to make sure she is still available: I don't even know where to begin in my praises of Sabrina. She is professional, made our day an event than just a wedding, and. . .she has a lovely Italian... Read More accent you can listen to all day. My wife and I get along better than most couples and I can say Sabrina saved our marriage by not planning this event on our own. We thought about saving money by putting on a wedding on our own and were smart enough to think it through. Within hours of signing the contract, Sabrina had already worked wonders. She had a Pinterest account for us to share her ideas and she provided us vendors that saved us an amount greater than the services we purchased. She completely went above and beyond everything we had imagined which included speaking with all the vendors which I thought I would be confident in doing on my own; I was not. Sabrina put us on a very doable schedule and we still procrastinated to the very day of the wedding. Even still Sabrina did not bat an eye and provided a wedding that far exceeding any of our expectations. Our entire wedding party loved her from the moment she said hello and we've had friends and family members make comments such as "wedding of the century" and "that won't be topped anytime soon". We can't even take credit for any of it other than we made the smart decision of booking La Dolce Idea. Ladies: You will fall in love with Sabrina from day 1 and her ideas will far exceed that perfect wedding you had dreamed about. Guys: I'm a guy that wanted to get married in a courthouse, loves football and couldn't imagine a wedding being worth the time or money investment. Sabrina saved me money, any potential wedding arguments, and had me talking about my wedding to everyone rather than football the following week.

April 11th, 2015, had to have been the most flawless day in history! At least, that's the way our wedding went down in the books! Sabrina, by far was the best choice ever. The last thing someone wants on their wedding day is to have to worry about a thing. And that's exactly... Read More what we did, nothing! Sabrina, is the goddess of wedding planners. She coordinated every second of our beautiful day. The only thing we ever worried about was if our glasses were kept full and if we needed a touch up on our lip gloss. Actually, that's a fib, Sabrina even kept out glasses full through out our special day! She not only tailored to our every need, on this special day. She made herself always available, from the smallest details; personalizing our favors, decorating/arranging our beautiful cake table, holding our hands and reviewing every detail needed the day before, during our rehearsal, guiding us with a personalized checklist nearly a year before our wedding, endless emails and so much more! Our friends and family could not stop boasting about our wedding being....THE BEST WEDDING EVER! We owe this all to Sabrina and her amazing gift of professionalism, efficiency and enthusiasm! Thank you Sabrina!
