The one piece of advice that I received over and over again from previous brides was to hire a Wedding Coordinator (or, at minimum, a Day-of-Coordinator). Being extremely organized, somewhat of a perfectionist, and generally of the mindset that “if you want something done right, you need to do it yourself”, I surely thought I could successfully plan my wedding in a year and a half. I was about 8 months into the planning process when I decided that I agreed with those other brides. I had already created a detailed budget, selected the location for the ceremony and reception, and booked nearly every vendor. I had a pretty clear vision of the theme I wanted and what I wanted my wedding to feel like to guests. However, I had absolutely no idea how to implement my ideas without making the wedding look like a mess and without blowing my budget!
This is where Lorie and Teresa came into the picture. My husband and I met them and instantly had a connection with them. They are very down to earth and really listened to our ideas. Within a week of first meeting them, we decided that we had to hire them! They played a huge role in how our vision for our ceremony and reception actually came to fruition. I had no idea what flowers I liked. I only knew the ones I didn’t like and what colors I wanted. Amazingly, that was enough for them to create something incredible that matched our personality and our style perfectly. I never once felt like they were trying to impose something else on us or change our vision. They listened to what we liked and didn’t like, and even followed my Pinterest board to keep up with my frequent flow of ideas! Whenever I had a million questions (including super small ones), I could reach out to them and get answers to all of them quickly. We truly cannot thank them enough for helping us create the perfect wedding for us!
