I love Stacey! Our wedding was absolutely gorgeous. This review might be a bit lengthy but we'll worth the read! We had a vintage tropical tiki themed wedding in the winter with colors of pink and aqua and she made it all work. I couldn't have been happier with how everything... Read More turned out. The venue, the linens, the decor, the flower arrangements, the music, the food, the ambience! Stacey also does the flower arrangements, you must book her for this! She also does the photobooth, everyone loved the photo both! How she came up with these gorgeous tropical retro tiki Tropicana flower arragments is beyond me. They turned out so much more gorgeous is person. The flower arrangements knocked me off my feet! Stacey is wonderful to work with. I have such a busy schedule with work and the kids that planning a wedding was going to be way to much. I thought I could do it on my own, but there are so many things to do and think off that aren't even on wedding checklists I've seen. She kept us on track and helped us with ideas and recommend vendors that all turned out great. She gets to know you and takes her time with the planning and the ideas. The last week leading up to the wedding is so stressful but she takes care of so much especially the day of. The day of the wedding she keeps everyone on point and the day moves on so smoothly. My guests had a great time and so did we! She recommend the bakery and our cakes and deserts looked amazing and tasted great! The dj we picked on our own didn't end up working out for us, and she found an amazing Dj last minute for us and she was amazing the music, the lighting our tiki head gobo! I recommend Stacey to anyone who needs help planning and coordinating their wedding. This is a special moment and there are so many more moving parts than one can imagine. She makes it easier and takes the stress out of it, so you can enjoy the planning and have fun. I am definitely using her again for parties in the future. I will post wedding photos when we get them :) If anyone wants to ask me more questions feel free to contact me!

I thought a wedding coordinator was supposed to coordinate vendors and guide the couple to get things done timely. Perhaps taking a vacation right before the wedding (as the coordinator did) is not a good idea. The only vendor coordinated was the make-up artist and the... Read More scheduling for this was too early. The wedding party sat around for 2 hours, fully dressed and nothing much to do for 2 hours before the wedding (making them very antsy). The rehersal was done without music resulting in the music at the wedding being so bad it was funny. The transition from the wedding to the reception was chaotic. On a good note, the coordinator did make the bride feel better when the cake topper was knocked off the cake.

I'm so glad we chose Stacey as our wedding coordinator. Our wedding was a dream and it was such a relief to have Stacey tying together the bits and pieces for us in the home stretch. After hiring Stacey as our day-of coordinator, I most absolutely wished I had hired her earlier... Read More in the process :) As our original floral plans changed, Stacey also became our florist which I could not be happier about! Our flowers turned out EXACTLY as I had hoped - actually, way better than that, and she was able to do so under the budget I was expecting . I was extremely surprised and pleased with the outcome once we went with Stacey as our florist. I had no idea it could be that easy :) Again, should have just selected that option a lot sooner! In terms of coordination we had a LOT of moving parts and Stacey managed them all. Her team was great, and even my mom commented on how much she loved Stacey after meeting her during one of our visits. She puts you at ease. After researching coordinator options in the area, I found that Stacey's day-of coordination package stood out above the rest for a few key reasons: she had a GREAT reputation in the area (came highly recommended by our venue and even some of our other vendors!), she did not have exclusions in her package that prevented us from meeting in person before the wedding (I was shocked to hear that other vendors were charging an arm and a leg and weren't even willing to meet you in person until the rehearsal!?) AND her contract terms ensured she was there until the end (again, surprised by other vendor contracts that said they left after cake cutting. I'm sorry, the wedding is not over then!). With Stacey we didn't have to worry about these short-cuts. On your wedding, that's the LAST thing you want. Stacey was an all-in coordinator. She was available for phone and in-person meetings before the wedding, she stayed through the end of the reception which made me feel much more comfortable, and she did an absolute fantastic job with the day's details. Thanks Stacey to you and your team for making our wedding so fantastic! We couldn't be happier with our entire wedding experience and know we couldn't have pulled it off without you!
