I could go on and on about how organized, punctual, professional, and friendly Dana is, or about how she is constantly willing to work with vendors to get her clients what they want for their day, or about how confident I felt on my day because...
I knew that she was taking care of things.
Here's a couple stories from our wedding, just to prove how amazing Dana is:
Our officiant ghosted on us about a week before the wedding. We hadn't heard from him in 2 weeks, despite leaving several voicemails and emails. I called Dana to ask her advice, and discovered that she was already on it. She called him multiple times a day, sent a ton of emails, and when that failed, called me with a list of alternative officiants that she'd already talked to with last-minute availability. We ended up finding our officiant in the end, but it was SO reassuring to know that Dana was on top of things every step of the way.
In the morning of the day, the florist arrived and I noticed that there were only 2 bridesmaid bouquets. I had 3 bridesmaids. I was freaking out and did not know what to do. Almost as soon as Dana arrived about an hour later, she got the news about the bouquet from one of my bridesmaids, and came right upstairs to reassure me. Toss bouquet in hand, she told me not to worry, that the toss bouquet was almost identical to the bridesmaids' ones, and she would make sure to get it back from the bridesmaid later to use for tossing. This might seem like a small thing, but small things like that happened countless times during the wedding day. If I did not have Dana, dealing with all of those small issues would have been stressful and overwhelming.
Most importantly of all for me was the fact that Dana, who took care of decor set-up, did a GORGEOUS job arranging the tables and misc decor. Everything was even more beautiful than I had envisioned. To take a look, search for Sun and Sparrow photography, and go to Heather and Rameen's Romantic Garden Wedding in Santa Barbara.
