My (now wife) and I did our research on planners and she stumbled upon Patty. We did our first meeting together (fiancee, me, and Patty) and Patty was warm and super inviting. From there, Patty and I did most of the meetings together. It is safe to say that she continued to... Read More be as warm and friendly as our first meeting. Patty was tremendously responsive. I believe the longest I waited for an email response for Patty was a few hours (and that was for a VERY non-time sensitive response). It was usually minutes before she responded. Patty always picked up her phone. She also did a wonderful job of making herself available for after work meetings. In terms of organization, she was equally special. Our wedding was very complicated (3 day wedding with camping on a farm, etc. etc.). She had a master binder (color coded, etc) with EVERY document we used on record. She also knew all of those documents like the back of her hand, so if I had questions about a vendor, she could give me the answer without me going and looking it up. In terms of contacts with vendors/venues, I was impressed. At the first meeting, Kim and I had a general ideas as to what we wanted as well as a Pintrest board. At the second meeting, Patty had 10 or so venues that matched our desire, several caterers, etc.. She provided us with pro's and con's for each option we were looking through as well. In terms of anything else to know, there isn't much else. Patty was incredibly thoughtful. My wife was very stressed about the wedding - Patty brought her a six pack of Mike's hard lemonade to a meeting. I was getting super busy at work - Patty offered to shop for us for decor items free of charge for this service. She's a rock star. What would I have done differently? Worry less. There were moments where I literally though to myself "We are planning a wedding. I need to be more stressed. What is wrong?" Nothing was wrong. Patty was just taking care of the details that create that stress. Our wedding was wonderful and we have Patty to thank!

Patty has so many good qualities, it's hard to be brief here. Now that our wedding has come and gone, I look back and can't imagine what planning would have been like without her. When planning the biggest (and most expensive!) party of your life, the stress can get... Read More overwhelming. But hiring Patty certainly took the pressure off in a huge way and provided us with a mentor and planning companion. Patty is positive, supportive, professional and warm. She was always one step ahead of the game and provided us with do-to lists, vendor recommendations, and ideas. We had a year to plan and by the time the day was here, my husband and I felt like guests at our own wedding. It was spectacular! Friends and family have said it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Patty is worth it and you will without a doubt not regret hiring her for your special day.

Patty is AMAZING! Seriously, go hire her. Now. We booked her early in the wedding planning process and ended up working with her for 19 months, from scratch until the big day. This review will be a novel if I list all the qualities that make Patty the most terrific planning... Read More partner, so I'll hit only the high notes. Perhaps most importantly, Patty is so kind and humble and hardworking. (Oh, and super organized! Her binders are incredible.) She was with us every step of the way, from venue and vendor selection to invite and itinerary design and through the wedding weekend itself. She is always optimistic and cheerful - indispensable qualities when you're in the thick of the planning process! - and would even bring my favorite drink to meetings as a little memento to help me stay relaxed :) She shopped for us, addressed everything from our invites to our escort cards, helped us keep track of due dates and gratuities, and had the most thorough question lists for vendor meetings. She thought of things we never would have, and mainly she just made us feel confident and at ease. Honestly, we're so sad that we don't have the wedding as an excuse to email/call/text her now that our wedding is over! Her services are a total bargain for all that she brings to the table, and her services were easily the smartest expense of our wedding. I can't say enough about her professionalism, knowledge, and kindness. She's exactly the partner you want to walk you through the sometimes frantic wedding planning process.

Patty was truly phenomenal - it's hard to convey the magnitude of what she was able to accomplish for our wedding, but suffice it to say that it was magical. My husband and I had an outdoor wedding in a park with no power outlets, seating, or support from a venue. We had a... Read More number of different vendors (music, flowers, chair rental, food, photographer) that were all arriving when we were going to be getting ready, so we needed someone to be there to greet everyone and set up the area for us. Additionally, we had a number of family members that were helping with DIY stuff, which also needed coordination. Patty made all of the moving pieces (and there were a LOT of them) flow seamlessly from set up to clean up. My husband and I didn't have to lift a finger or worry about a thing - it was all done, exactly the way that we wanted it to be so we could just enjoy the day. Patty even brought her husband with her to make sure that there were enough hands (and he was just as lovely). In addition to all of the above, I want to add that there was a serious threat of bad rainstorms and, although we had a plan B, we were stubbornly reluctant to pull the trigger on it, as we both felt very strongly about having the ceremony outside, no matter what. Patty was very diplomatic about the rain and our stubborness - she didn't push us to have the ceremony inside, helped us brainstorm about other options, and was totally comfortable waiting until the last minute for us to decide. At Patty's gentle suggestion, we ended up getting a tent from the company that rented the chairs, which Patty facilitated (and she and her husband set up a canopy for the musician themselves). We really appreciated the fact that she was willing to indulge our less than logical feelings, without making us feel pressured or unprepared. Last but not least, she was incredibly affordable considering all the work that she did. I really can't say enough good things, and the above is only a small part of what she did for us. I would absolutely hire her again in an instant.

My husband and I did most of the heavy lifting with planning our wedding, and Patty at Perfectly Coordinated was an absolute life-saver for us. We knew we needed professional assistance in keeping on track in the months leading up to the wedding, and Patty provided amazing... Read More structure and advice.

To say that Patty coordinated our wedding is an understatement.

Throughout the...

She also managed the flow of our big day, making sure everything unfolded according to plan and taking the pressure off of us so that we could sit back and enjoy the ride.

I planned my Rockport, MA wedding from 1000 miles away and I definitely could not have done it without Patty. We first talked on the phone and she suggested that I do the "Month of" coordinating package. I was unsure if I needed all the help this would offer but I am so, so glad... Read More I did this package. Even if you think you've got things under control, you haven't thought of half of the things that Patty will ask you. She was incredible about making sure my ducks were in a row with vendors, the timing of the wedding day, and she even put me in contact with a vendor I ended up using. Patty and I had countless late night email sessions and she was always very, very quick to respond to my questions/concerns. As she mentions in her site, she has many *very* useful lists for wedding prep, and using these and our conversations, I felt very prepared for the day. As it turns out, you can only be so prepared though. And one of the most important contributions Patty made was her amazing coordinating on the day of the wedding. To me, everything went perfectly. Later I found out that there was a lot going on the behind the scenes, and Patty and her crew were working tirelessly to make my event the huge success that it was. I highly recommend Perfectly Coordinated and Patty to plan your big day. I'm so glad that I had Patty with me along the way; having the time the month before the wedding to get to know her and for her to become familiar with my plans was pricesless. She was my coordinator along the way and became a friend as we worked together. Fantastic person and coordinator.
