Aribella Events is a boutique full-service wedding and event planning and design firm, serving Chester, Delaware and New Castle Counties, including Philadelphia, Hockessin, and Wilmington. Aribella specializes in long-distance planning and weekend weddings, offering a full range of services from invitations, favors and gifts to design, décor and detail management. An Aribella Event is not merely about the location and logistics; it’s about creating a connection, a legacy – the legacy of a love story.



Aribella Martin received a letter from her young suitor, written December 22, 1815. "My Dear Aribella," the letter begins, "I hope the time will come when we shall see each other face to face without the mediums of pen and ink..." As Aribella is my grandmother’s great-grandmother, I have now been charged with the care of this frail and faded letter, which captures my imagination and stirs the eternal romantic in me. I don’t know who the young man was, I may never find an image of he and Aribella on their wedding day or know the “rest of the story” - but I know there was love. I know this letter meant enough to her that it was passed safely down the family line thru events that shaped our country and even the world, from before The Civil War, thru both World War I and World War II, even the current wars in the Middle East and beyond - and yet this story, this legacy of their love story, remains.

In many ways, I consider the honor of joining you in planning your wedding as rare and intimate a gift as caring for Aribella’s letter. Tremendous care must be taken to listen attentively, particularly to that which goes unspoken. To fully “get” you as individuals and as a couple. To weave your style and personality seamlessly throughout the details of your wedding. To honor tradition without being traditional. To create a connection, a shared moment with your friends and families.

The love story is yours already. Let Aribella create the legacy.

Having Aribella events (more specifically Tonia) help with my wedding planning was amazing. She really did a great job at listening to the vision I wanted and helped create it. My wedding day was honestly everything I wanted and more! She made the process easier, fun and was there to calm me down when things didn't go as planned (which will happen!). Through the process she was a huge help and when it came to the wedding day itself, she was great. She did an awesome job making sure I did not worry about anything but having fun and was a huge part of why my wedding day went so perfect. I usually don't write reviews but I really have to say that most of the vendors I dealt with for my wedding were that amazing and Tonia with Aribella events was one of them. I highly recommend her if you are looking for someone who will take their time to get to know you, figure out your vision, and work with you with a lot of flexibility.

As a wedding photographer myself I knew I needed to have a wedding planner for my own wedding. I never had a question in my mind who that would be. Ironically the night my husband asked my Dad's permission Tonia and I were out to dinner and I told her that she was going to plan my wedding whenever I was asked. A few weeks later that day came. She was very detailed in asking what I wanted for my wedding and to be honest I knew whatever she created was going to be amazing. Throughout the process she was great at listening to what I needed and balancing the delicate relationship between my dad and I (who I began referring to as Dadzilla). The wedding day came and I could not have asked for a more perfect day. The flowers and decor were amazing! The only downside was that I was the bride and not the photographer! At one point I couldn't help but grab a friend's camera and take a few pictures. It was stunning! Everyone raved about how professional she was on the day of and loved the decor she designed! Hiring Tonia was the best decision I made in my wedding planning process.

Tonia was extremely helpful and accommodating. We could not have asked for someone better to coordinate our wedding. Tonia and her assistants handled absolutely everything on our wedding day so that we were able to enjoy every moment of it. Without Aribella Events timeline and organization our wedding would not have been as perfect as it was! I highly recommend.

Tonia was excellent! She helped us plan our entire wedding in less than 8 weeks! She was very organized and made sure we had all the details in line. She was a big help with the planning, informing us what needed to be done, and finding vendors to use for flowers, invitations, etc. Any information we needed she was there to help us. We really appreciated all the help she was before and the day of the wedding. Our wedding day she was there to make sure everything flowed smoothly. We knew we were in good hands and didn't have to worry about a thing. If your looking for a stress free wedding day and help with the details I would highly recommend tonia for your event!!

Aribella Events help create my dream wedding. I had a very specific idea of my ideal big day. With the help of Tonia Adleta those dreams came true. She gave great advice when it was needed and also listened when I need to vent. Thanks to Tonia's knowledge and past experience my Wedding day was the most beautiful day of my life that I will never forget. Thank you.

Feedback from a groom:

Tonia is first rate in all regards. We deliberated over splurging for a coordinator after our wedding venue PROMISED us we would not need additional support. Fortunately, my wife trusted her intuition and we sought outside support. Before meeting Tonia we interviewed numerous coordinators who were all very similar - something about them felt disingenuous. Tonia was the complete opposite. She has the rare gift of truly caring about people.

Tonia really stands out as a supremely capable planner, and a kind hearted, sincere person. She is outstanding, and our wedding was outstanding because of her efforts.

Tonia Adleta of Aribella Events is professional, enthusiastic, creative and down-to-earth – a combination that’s hard to find in many wedding professionals. Tonia served as the main point of contact for all of our vendors for the month leading up to our wedding. This allowed us to stay excited, not stressed, during the final weeks before our big event. Tonia knows what she is doing and is very well versed in venue operations. During our final review at our venue, Tonia expertly managed uncomfortable conversations - ultimately saving us money! The day of the wedding, Tonia and her team were there and ensured everything was just as we had planned. What a pleasure it was to have the Aribella team at our wedding. We truly trusted that they would make sure every single last detail was executed perfectly. We had the most amazing wedding, and not only do we consider Tonia an amazing wedding coordinator, but she’s now also a dear friend!

Tonia served as the main point of contact for all of our vendors for the month leading up to our wedding. This allowed us to stay excited, not stressed, during the final weeks before our big event. Tonia knows what she is doing and is very well versed in venue operations. During our final review at our venue, Tonia expertly managed uncomfortable conversations - ultimately saving us money! The day of the wedding, Tonia and her team were there and ensured everything was just as we had planned. What a pleasure it was to have the Aribella team at our wedding. We truly trusted that they would make sure every single last detail was executed perfectly. We had the most amazing wedding, and not only do we consider Tonia an amazing wedding coordinator, but she’s now also a dear friend! Read less

She fully grasped “our vision” for the wedding and was able to enhance this vision with all of her ideas. Tonia is incredibly organized and had excellent follow-up with even the tiniest of details.

Tonia was awesome! She was there for me with not only great ideas & suggestions but also as a friend I could talk to when tensions got high with my family.

She was constantly in touch with me making sure all of the details, even things I never even thought of, were all set for the big day.

To sum it all up I could not have done it without her & with three unmarried sisters I'll definitely be seeing Tonia in the future.

Our wedding could not have been more perfect and it was all thanks to Tonia and her team.

We started working with Tonia about 10 months before our wedding and she assisted every step of the way from helping us find the perfect officiant, band, photographer, and hair & makeup team to ensuring our (my) vision for the design and decor came to life :). Whenever a little issue or roadblock popped up, Tonia was on top of it right away. The day of, Tonia and her team had everything under control so we could concentrate on being present rather than worrying about all the little details.

Aside from being organized and having a great design aesthetic, Tonia has the brightest and most positive personality. She is accomodating and attentive and listens to everyones ideas. Monthly conference calls with my entire family and all their opinions on the phone was not an easy thing to balance, but she did it with a smile on her face.

I definitley recommend Tonia & Aribella Events, you will be in great hands.

Our wedding would not have been what it was if it was not for Tonia and her team. We hired Tonia to help us with our wedding plans as my husband and I were both finishing our schooling. We needed someone to help us take some wedding planning details off of our hands. She listened to exactly what we wanted and was able to give us ideas of what she thought would work best for us when we had no idea. She set us up with some of the top vendors in the business who were all so great to work with and who I know we never would have found on our own.
Come our wedding day it was such a relief to know she was there and would take care of all the details for us. If something did go wrong on our wedding day, we had no idea and still don't to this day! I really can not say enough great things about Tonia and Aribella Events and I would hire them again without hesitation for any future event.

Tonia and her team at Aribella Events were outstanding to work with. My husband and I had very busy schedules and decided several months before the wedding that we needed someone to help keep the wedding planning on schedule and to help make everything happen. Tonia worked with our hectic schedules to keep us on track and facilitated every step from finding vendors to helping coordinate meetings to keeping track of all the moving parts. In addition to being a huge help prior to the wedding, she was outstanding on our wedding day. She helped keep the day running smoothly and on schedule without hectoring anyone or transmitting any stress to me (or my husband or family or any of the bridal party). The day was beautifully executed and we (and our families and friends) got to spend the time enoying ourselves and not worrying about any details. For this, we are forever grateful.

One of the most impressive things about Tonia, and what made our decision to work with her easy and natural, is that despite being very organized and a strong leader that gets things done, she is in no way pushy or condascending. She is extremely genuine, patient, and supportive while being very capable, realistic, and experienced at the same time. We met several people that were either capable and experienced or kind and gentle, but Tonia was the only person we met who possessed both characteristics.

Impossible to have done it without Tonia, and wouldn't have been nearly as nice as it was.

We were all in different cities, had chosen a city "in the middle" which none of us were living in, and all had day jobs. It could have easily been a challenging and frustrating experience. As it turned out we can't imagine it being any better than it was. Tonia was key to that success.

At the outset, the checklists, timeline and budgeting administrative help took much of the initial stress off. Recommendations for the various bits and pieces like band, cake, hair, hotels etc. invariably good. Keeping us on track with decisions very helpful. Design of the room, flowers etc. icing on the cake.

Giving the bride and the mother-of someone else to yell at other than each other, speaking as father-of, priceless.

My husband Shane and I worked with Tonia and Aribella Events as our day of the event coordinator. Although we had a somewhat limited budget, we decided that a day of the event coordinator was a must, so that we could enjoy our day while a responsible professional handled the details. Tonia and her staff did just that. Tonia coordinated with our vendors in the final weeks before the wedding to take that task off my plate. And although Tonia could not coordinate our event, her associate Joelene did a wonderful job making sure that the day flowed smoothly.

Tonia is also incredibly friendly and easy to communicate with. Shane and I live in the D.C. area and our wedding was in Bucks County, P.A. Tonia was able to check in with us via skype and also scheduled sessions to accommodate our busy work schedules. She definitely allowed me to breathe a sigh of relief during what was definitely, at times, a stressful wedding planning process.

Overall, our investment in Tonia and Aribella Events was a good one and we would certainly recommend her services to couples embarking upon the wedding planning process.

Tonia was a great help to my daughter and me. We had two years to get the details of the wedding planned but as can happen with that much time you can lose your focus. Tonia kept us on track and helped to ease the anxiety as it built. The day of the wedding she was with us from early morning until the event was over. I would highly recommend Tonia for any event you are planning.
