Beyond anything I could have imagined - truly incredible.
Andrea helped us plan our wedding that took place in late February 2016. She was nothing short of incredible throughout the entire process. My (now) husband and I have been together for many years (decade plus), and when we finally decided to get married, we were focused on making it a fun long weekend for our close friends and family. However, we didn't have a clear vision of what we wanted the wedding to be like. Andrea was not only fun and warm and positive, but she managed to take our vague ideas of what we wanted the weekend to be like and turn them into a perfectly delivered package that exceeded all of our expectations. I mean it very sincerely when I say I can't imagine our wedding without her.
One of the most remarkable things about planning a wedding with Andrea is that she takes the time to get to know you, and learn about what's important to you, and then she comes up with endless ideas for different ways you could pull those elements into your wedding. She focuses on translating the "you" into the wedding plan, and is creative and talented and knowledgeable enough to do so. If you have a theme, she'll come up with creative ways to infuse it into the celebration. If you just have a feeling in mind, she'll suggest different touches that will help evoke it. For every part of our wedding, she helped think up different options, which she would then explain to us so that we could choose the one that felt best. Then she managed, tracked, and monitored the execution from start to finish. We ended up with a wedding that was everything we hoped for, but couldn't have come up with on our own - amazing food and great drinks (her recommendation), fabulous music both live and DJed (her suggestions), gorgeous and elegant decor and setup (her designs), and countless little touches that everyone noticed and commented on. I can't tell you how many little things she added that, day of, made the difference between a nice event and an extraordinary one. This was true of the rehearsal dinner as well.
I also have to emphasize how fantastic Andrea is to work with. She's incredibly responsive - I was the only cause of any slow-downs in our planning, she always (I mean it, always) responded to any email (no matter how long) within a day. She's extremely organized - she managed ALL of the details of planning, all of the communications with vendors and such, and all the payments before, during, and after. She offered suggestions and recommendations, but was never even remotely pushy. As I mentioned above, she is a fabulous blend of warm, supportive, talented, and exceedingly creative. She's also funny and kind and delightful to hang out with. She made the wedding planning process enjoyable, fun, and stress-free, which after asking around, seems very much the exception!
I don't ever plan on getting married again :-) but I am already thinking about what sort of reunion or anniversary events we could plan. And if/when I do, the very first thing I'll do is see if Andrea is available to help. I can't (or don't want to) imagine what our wedding would have been like without her.
I very sincerely think Andrea is truly exceptional, and that you'll be lucky to work with her if she's available for your event. Regardless of how much you're spending, you want your event to be the best it can be, and she's incredible at making that happen. I can't thank her enough for making our wedding out of this world.
