I hired Heidi for "month of coordination" for my wedding on May 2, 2015 at Wadsworth Mansion, and it was a wonderful decision that took a lot of stress off my mother and me. During my planning, Heidi was there to answer all my questions, attend vendor meetings with me, deal with any difficult vendors and facilitate the necessary people to create my vision. On the day of my event, Heidi and Dee Dee took care of everything seamlessly, and any problems that arose they handled without me even realizing. They are professionals, calm under pressure, always on top of whatever needs to be addressed, and just super nice and fun people. Every wedding will have problems but thanks to Heidi and Dee Dee ours was minimal. I highly recommend!!

Heidi and Dee Dee were AMAZING! They are organized, professional, attentive, and so much fun!! To say that I am happy that I had Heidi for "month of" planning and them both on the day of my wedding would be a total understatement. They not only made my wedding day perfect, but they allowed me to relax and enjoy that perfect day. Always and Forever is the best investment I made for our wedding and I would reccomend them anyone for their big day. Seriously...book them right now!! :)

Heidi Hanson was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end! We had our wedding at Studio 450 in New York City. It's a beautiful blank event space with a rooftop that has a gorgeous view of the skyline. I was both relieved and a bit nervous to hire a planner. I like having control, especially over something as important as our wedding day. I created an inspiration board of images and ideas that I wanted to incorporate. After a couple conversations, I trusted her completely with our vision.

Living in Philadelphia made things a bit tricky for me but Heidi adjusted to my schedule with no problem. She was available at all hours of the day for Skype meetings, texts and calls; liaising between the florist, caterer and all other vendors. We spoke often; revisiting new concepts and questions...she was our right hand. Her advice and insight were invaluable. Heidi became not just the planner, but a friend and cheerleader, easing all my fears and nerves...talking me through every little bit of stress I may have had leading up to the event. On the day of, I wasn't worried about a thing. I was finally introduced to DeeDee who is part of Heidi's team, who was also a gem to work with. They make a great team...handling every little detail and making sure I wasn't bothered by anything or anyone. Everything was beautiful...our dream was realized. I could not be happier with the way things turned out that day. Guests are still raving about how gorgeous it was; how they loved all the details and decor. I would hire Heidi to plan any event I was hosting in the future. I highly recommend Always and Forever; they're a phenomenal team and a standout in their industry.

To quote my now husband, "I don't know what we would have done without Heidi."

From the moment we met Heidi we knew we made the right choice working with Always and Forever to help us plan our wedding. From showing us unique venues, to recommending amazing vendors to work with that fit our budget, she was the reason our wedding was such a success. People can't stop raving about the food, the flowers and the music. All found by Heidi.
Then there's our sanity. Whenever we were nervous, confused or concerned (which was rare, because Heidi's so on it), she was there to answer questions, calm us down, and guide us.
Finally, she became our friend. One of the saddest moments of the end of the wedding was realizing our work together was over. She is the best ever.

I met Heidi at the end of a stressful wedding planning week. Heidi was the first person I had met who got me and my vision. I left our first meeting with what felt like a HUGE weight off my shoulders.

DON'T be fooled by caterers in Connecticut. They may say they provide coordinating, but when asked if they would do "a or b", they looked at me like I was crazy. With A & F, that is exactly what they do... which is to say they do everything, all the things you can't possibly think of or plan for! You are getting an advocate for you, instead of a vendor who is really out for them.

I couldn’t have needed them more on my day. The power went out a half hour before the ceremony. Heidi and Deedee hopped into action. They made sure my vendors were ok, candles were whipped out, all while acting like nothing was wrong. Neither me nor my mom had to do any of this. I think this one half hour of work paid for their services, and if that was all they had done that night, it would have been enough. But of course that wasn’t all. Another big thing was the sewing of lace trim on my sleeve that had come undone. Other things, but still important, making sure I looked ok even though I didn’t have a mirror, grabbing my plate so I didn’t have to carry it. They fixed my under things when I needed it, and ran errands without having to be asked, like fetching my mother in laws shoes. They made sure we got our catering leftovers, and made sure the secret touches that my mother and husband had planned came to be.I could sing their praises all day! I loved them, and the way they always made me feel like they were in control. Heidi would say, “we got this, don’t worry.”

They were two of the hardest working people there that night, they were sweating up until my first dance. Most importantly, my mother wasn’t sweating because she didn’t have to do all those things. She got to enjoy seeing her only daughter get married. Which is the real value in what A & F do.

I used Always & Forever for my day of coordination and I cannot even begin to express how glad I am that I chose to go ahead with their day of coordination services!! We got married at the Wadsworth Mansion and as it's basically a blank canvas with all outside vendors, the final details can get confusing. Initially, when going over our budget, my husband and I had thought that the one places we could save would be the D.O.C.-- thank goodness we decided against this.

Heidi was a lifesaver!!! I was so overwhelmed with trying to figure out the timeline of the day, coordinating shuttles to pick up/drop guests, keeping track of all of the vendors, ?who was going to make sure everything was placed where it needed to be on the day of etc and it was the greatest thing in the world leaving the fine details to a professional who knows far more about wedding coordination than I do. Heidi made a finalized timeline, contacted all of the vendors the week before so that they knew exactly where/when they were supposed to be and was available 24/7 for any questions that I had. During the rehearsal the night before the wedding, she somehow managed to keep the wild groomsmen in check in order to do a full run-through. I also just felt completely comfortable knowing that she knew exactly what I wanted and would make sure the venue would be set up just as I had envisioned it. Heidi & her team even went as far as watching/holding my dog and making sure he made his way down the aisle.

On the day of my wedding, I woke up to a text from Heidi saying "Happy wedding day,it's beautiful out and to enjoy every moment." Thanks to her & her team, I was able to enjoy every moment because I didn't have to worry about anything, they had it all taken care of. It's funny how the one place we thought we could cut from our budget to save money ended up being one of the best choices we made- I don't know how we would have done it without Always & Forever!

Always and Forever is absolutely the best at coordinating special events. I knew from the moment we met Heidi she was the right choice for our daughter's special day. The setting and concept were not easy - a garden party wedding plus ceremony in a public park in New Haven with no power and limited facilities. But Heidi embraced the challenge and helped us pull together all the details. She works with amazing vendors and everything was perfection starting with the beautiful tent from Durkin in Danbury, the oak barrels from General Ecletic, the gorgeous table settings and buffet items from Party Rental Ltd, the incredible pictures from No Eye Has Seen Photography, and the amazing food from La Cuisine Caterers. The entire day was exactly as the bride and groom envisioned. I highly recommend Heidi and her staff for anyone's wedding or party needs.

We had some experience with weddings in the past. In addition, we had organizational skills. If someone did not have this experience and these skills, Heidi would add more value. In the end, Heidi and her team did what we needed her do do. It involved more coordination than planning.
