Anna was an amazing "day of" wedding coordinator. She met with me a few times to talk about exactly what we wanted help and support with and to understand our vision for the reception! She helped us get all the little extra "frills" to the reception location the day before the reception, and had everything set up the way we discussed. She also came to the church for the ceremony to keep things organized and answer any questions that might have come up. She helped send the wedding party down the aisle and coordinated the movement of the ceremony. Once we arrived at the reception, she had already grabbed some of the apps from the cocktail hour and displayed them in the bridal suite to make sure my husband and I wouldn't miss out - she also asked us before hand what our favorite drinks were and had those waiting in the bridal suite as well (so awesome!!!). From there, she let the wedding party know when it was time for introductions, lined us up and sent us out, coordinated speeches/toasts/dinner with the band and caterer, prompted the cake cutting and bouquet toss, helped me change into my short party dress, took lots of pictures and videos, gave out the glow wands and glasses that we brought - you name it, she did it. One of the best parts was not having to worry about getting everything together and out of the venue at the end of the night - Anna took care of ALL of that so that my parents and wedding party could make our way to the after party. She made sure to get anything that we left behind and gave it to me once I got back from my honeymoon. If you are like my mom and I and want to FULLY enjoy your wedding reception without having to worry about if things that you planned are going to happen when/how you planned them, Anna is a perfect vendor for you to choose! She made the night extra seamless, worry-free and fun!!!

Anna was a life-saver on our wedding day! We had our wedding at my parents-in-law's home with 250 guests and, while we had planned the entire thing ourselves, I definitely wanted a day-of coordinator to keep everything running smoothly.

I hardly saw Anna during the day, but she was always there at just the right moment when we needed an extra pin for the guys' bouitoneers or to hand me a glass of water. Five minutes before we were supposed to walk down the aisle, I realized that the flower girls didn't have any flowers in their baskets. We couldn't find the bag of flowers, but Anna seemed completely nonplussed - she grabbed some white roses from a display on the bar, quickly tore off the petals, and off we went.

There were probably a dozen of those minor incidents throughout the evening that could have been very stressful for me (or, more likely, my mother-in-law, since it was her home) but Anna was always running around in the background making sure that everything went completely smoothly.

Her pricing is very reasonable and I would highly recommend her services to anyone who has planned their own wedding and really just needs someone else to be "them" for a day.

Our son was married at our farm on the rainiest day in September. We had a rain plan but, like most people, did not think we would have to use it. The ceremony was scheduled to occur at the front of our house followed by cocktails on the lawn and dinner in a tent attached to our barn for music and dancing.
The drizzle began as guests arrived for the 5:30pm CEREMONY. Chairs had been set in the barn for the ceremony, tables rearranged for food and refreshments, etc. It could have been disastrous but Anna worked with us to reorganize . There was so much for her to deal with: the shuttle busses from downtown hotels, our parking attendants, rearranging and buffet tables once the ceremony chairs were removed, decorating the buffet tables and dessert tables, navigating guests through a more crowded area and so very much more. Our caterers were wonderful as well but Anna was at the helm.
Words cannot adequately express our appreciation of the duties which Anna performed. She cheerfully accommodated every request I made ( I admit I was especially demanding because of the stress) and did much more than I asked. My husband insisted that he call her the next day to express his appreciation. He said that prior to the event he had NO IDEA how important it was to have Anna.
Anna was great from the first moment that I called her six months prior to the wedding, great when she stopped by to see the venue, great when she visited again the week of the wedding but ABSOLUTELY THE VERY BEST the day of, even arriving early to ease the adjustment.
Our celebration was so special. I can honestly say that I have never thought “it’s a shame that it rained” because the rain created an intimacy and coziness inside our warm barn and beautifully decorated tent that would not have occurred otherwise. We have Anna to thank for a large part of the evening’s success. She is professional, organized and perceptive. She allowed us to enjoy our guests and that is the greatest compliment I can pay.

I recently had a "back yard" style wedding with 150 guests. This was more difficult to plan/coordinate than renting a venue because there weren't packages or a set way that things are done... it was kind of all up in the air and we were just winging it! Anna met with me, my fiance and our families several times to get a sense of how we wanted the day to go, contact all of our different vendors prior to the event/communicate with them during the event and basically run the show so that we didn't have to worry about it and could enjoy our day. She even drove to the local liquor store to pick up more white wine when we were running low!! She was recommended to me by a friend, and I will continue to recommend her!

My fiancé and I hired Anna as our day-of-coordinator for our recent very intimate wedding. As a meeting and event planner, I had taken care of the details of our special day but I knew I would need someone onsite that day to assist and execute my vision for the ceremony and to be in my corner with the vendors. From the moment of our initial contact, I knew she would be perfect and wonderful to work with. We were not disappointed. She and I corresponded very frequently via email, which I was completely comfortable with given the nature of our ceremony. We met the Monday before my wedding at the venue to discuss the timeline and everything that would need to be taken care of that Thursday. Anna was sharp and asked many questions to ensure we were on the same page.

She arrived as scheduled the day of the ceremony to help setup for my ceremony, she worked very well with my vendors and accepted delivery from the caterer, provided over-site for the florist, photographer and Officiant and made sure everyone was aware of what was happening to we stayed on schedule. She worked wonders keeping my Mother calm and my father, who has Alzheimer's occupied. She even went to a nearby store to pick-up potato chips that my dad requested. She is a consummate professional and I never had to ask or remind her to do anything as she was always way ahead of the curve and took the reigns on everything that needed to be done. After the ceremony Anna drove my DH and I to the restaurant for our dinner and checked in with us frequently. She was an invaluable asset to us on our big day. Our families loved her and noted how great she was. I definitely recommend her services to any bride as you cannot go wrong!

Anna was the perfect person as day of coordinator for my recent wedding. She met with me early on so we could meet face-to-face and to discuss her services. She was very flexible with meeting me several times before the wedding and was responsive via email for any questions I had. She arrived on time to help setup for my ceremony and reception and worked well with all my vendors. Anna offered to pick me and my bridesmaids up from the nearby hotel and drive us to the venue which was incredibly helpful! I didn't have to ask or remind her to do anything during the reception as she was right on top of it all (i.e., helping with grandparents, children, following the timeline of events, etc.) I would definitely recommend her to any bride!

Anna was very valuable to me on the day of my daughter's wedding. I met her about a month before and we went over things ahead of time, which was very helpful to me. On site she was very helpful and did not need instruction. She is very pleasant and professional.

Anna was fantastic! After getting a recommendation from a friend and getting closer to our wedding date, we decided to get a day-of coordinator though I hadn't planned on it. I am so glad we did! Anna was able to take the stress away from the day and handle all the little details I had worked on. She also was able to work independently and didn't need me for things. My sister also let me know after the wedding how great she was at just jumping in and getting things done. Anna even took my niece from my sister when she needed to get up for her matron of honor speech. I highly recommend Anna!

I was on the fence about whether we needed to hire a wedding coordinator for our wedding. I am really glad we did. I met Anna just once before the wedding to go over a few details, so I wasn't sure exactly what to expect. Let me just say - Anna Lance is a total rockstar!! Things got a little crazy - one of my bridesmaids was in the emergency room with abdominal pain - but once Anna got there everything came under control. She took care of things I didn't even realize needed taking care of. She worked completely behind the scenes - I don't think she is even in one of the pictures. Our guests were so impressed they went out of their way to mention how wonderful she was. The day was seamless in large part because Anna is really just that good at her job. If you are like me and unsure about whether you need a coordinator - I can assure you Anna is well worth the expense.
