As the mother of the bride, I never dreamed how valuable a coordinator would be until I saw you in action on the Wedding Day. You handled every detail to perfection (including details I would have never thought of). Because of your professionalism, the bride never stressed out which means neither did Mom. I am still in awe of how smooth everything went. We have received so many compliments which are thanks to your talent. I will be recommending Purple Door Planning to my friends and family ready to plan their Big Day!
