Best Coordinator and Officiant, An Eventective User from Portland oregon

As a very hands-on bride with amazingly talented sisters and a committed desire to stay on budget, we didn’t think we would need wedding coordinators. When it got down to the final two months, we decided a Day of Coordinator would be a sanity saver for sure. When Donovan and I met Paula and Trish, we told them about our DIY barn wedding with burlap, mason jar glasses, bamboo plates, and hand-sewn napkins. They didn’t think we were crazy, and even seemed to love our ideas! With the décor, venue, caterer all sorted out, we really needed them for the more unusual items—cake cutting, getting the iPod going at the right time, setting out appetizers after the ceremony, coordinating the timing for the actual ceremony, refilling the lemonade, spending twelve hours at the barn on our wedding day….all the tiny details. AND, a bonus, Paula could officiate! These gals met us at the site, made last minute contact with all the vendors, even had Lincoln (Trish's husband) come in and help with the sound system. Friends and family helped set up inside the barn the day before, but the day of—was all Paula and Trish! We were wavering between Plan A and Plan B (we were the only rainy Saturday in September!), but the AE Ladies made it all happen in the end. Paula helped us feel as comfortable as possible in front of everyone and Trish saved my nerves as she got me to the aisle! They laughed and cried with us, they were amazing and so very affordable too! We’re so glad they were a part of our day! Dana and Donovan--" Portland, Or
