When my now wife and I started planning our wedding, I was 100% against having a planner. I thought, “We have a whole year, to figure it out and besides, how hard can it be to plan a party”. Well, with my wife in school and unable to commit ve...
ry much time to planning, I agreed to at least interview a couple planners. Throckmorton Events was the second company we met with and I knew instinctively that we needed this team on our side. Danielle was so meticulous that I knew she wouldn’t let a single detail slip. And she had already thought of so many different things that never would have crossed my mind. It was obvious from the start, Danielle wasn’t just doing this for a paycheck. This is absolutely her passion and it shows in every bit of her work.
After hiring Throckmorton Events, we went to work planning. My wife and I only had a photographer and a venue lined up so we used Danielle’s recommendations for flowers, music, tables, etc. and everything turned out great! We even benefited from discounted rates that Danielle had negotiated with the vendors.
Throughout the planning process, Danielle listened to what we wanted and then worked feverishly for us to have our wedding, our way. She was a boss when it came to coordinating with vendors and holding people accountable. She reviewed our contracts and noted all the important details for us to consider. That way, we always knew exactly what we were getting ourselves into. When we had questions along the way, she was always available and excited to help us.
Beyond all of her great wedding planning abilities, Danielle is incredibly sweet, friendly, and outgoing. I think everyone who gets married needs a planner as amazing as her. She’s an advocate: experienced and dedicated. Remember, I didn’t want, nor think I needed, a planner. But, hands down, hiring Danielle was the smartest thing I have ever done (since proposing).
