“Renee was my other half for the last 11 months, I don’t know that I would have made it down the aisle in one piece without her. From day one she was friendly and upbeat, and I was always excited when a Renee email came through to my inbox!
Renee is very professional and really knows what she is doing - she answered literally every single question i had, tiny ones about favors to big ones like how to make the timeline of the day flow. She went above and beyond at every single moment, making me feel comfortable knowing I had someone who was completely by my side who was an expert in this space.
Leading up to the wedding Renee helped me with whatever was needed, and helped me build out what I think was a beautiful, romantic, and personal wedding for my husband and I. She attended meetings with vendors and asked questions I would never even have thought of asking.
The week (or two) leading up to the wedding I think I spoke to Renee more than I spoke to anyone - she made sure everything was running smoothly, and was very aware of my feelings and making sure I was doing well, it was very sweet! She completely ran the rehearsal which was a feat in itself.
The day of the wedding she was my rockstar, I don’t have words to describe what her help meant to me that day. She was at the hotel while we were getting ready to make sure pictures ran smoothly. She made sure all the men were ready (I was worried here). Her team coordinated the three different shuttle companies we had to use (looking back, I wouldn’t have been able to do this the day of, I had no idea how much work a wedding is). She got to the venue early and made sure the first look was all set, and then calmed me down when it wasn’t. She was miraculously by my side whenever i needed her, and had anticipated my needs (Like that I would need lipstick after the ceremony but before pictures!).
Renee’s team was also fantastic, both during planning and day of. Sarah and Natalie were fantastic, also anticipating my needs, and the needs of the guests, and being professional and on point the entire time. At one point they even helped me bustle my dress in the middle of the dance floor because I broke it mid-song!
There were a million things that Renee and her team did that i didn’t know about until after, and I can honestly say if I had to deal with them, the wedding may not have happened. A few of the many things I learned she handled after included: ceremony chairs being in the wrong location, people in our first look spot that we had to get to move, losing my fiances’ bag, broken champagne glasses, running behind on schedule, my dog being a bit of a brat during pictures - this was probably the most important thing she did that she didn’t know was going to be part of the job...) Having her there made me actually able to enjoy the best day of my life.
I am so glad a friend of mine recommended Renee to me. She made the last year truly amazing for our wedding. I’d like to get married again just so I can work with Renee and her team!
Thank you Renee, Natalie, and Sarah!”
