I hired Helena as one of my first vendors. I would have hired her earlier than I did, but I had to set a date first! I ended up hiring her for month of coordination and I am so glad I did. I am quite the planner myself but she was some of the best money I spent. She was so helpful through the entire process. She would bring up questions I had never thought of, and was always there to lend an unbiased ear or eye. Looking back on the day, I cannot imagine doing it without her. My family would have been so stressed! I had such a vision of the way I wanted everything to look and she and her team captured it perfectly, and in only an hour (Bali Hai’s only downfall…one hour set up time!) I still don’t know how they did it. I am sure there were issues through out the night, but I didn’t hear about them.

Just her vendor recommendations alone were worth a lot of her cost! Everyone she recommended worked out very well, and it was so nice having all my vendors know one another.

The timeline she worked out was perfect, just enough time for everything, without my guests feeling bored or rushed. All my vendors were where they were supposed to be, everybody got paid, and she took care of all the confirmations the month and week of the wedding. A week before the wedding, I realized I hadn’t talked to a lot of my vendors in months, but Helena had it all covered!

I have looked back on the event so many times in awe just wondering how I would have done it without her. It would have been the most stressful day of my life. I definitely recommend her and her team. It is worth it to cut something else to allow you and your family to enjoy the day. I ended up cutting out a photobooth to make sure I could hire her and I have not one regret about doing so.

The greatest tip I could give to a bride is to hands-down hire a coordinator for AT LEAST the day of your wedding. Along with that, I would also tell a bride to hands-down hire Helena.

I can't even begin to tell you how much of a help she was to have throughout the planning process as well as to have her in charge on our wedding day. From the moment I met her I knew I wanted to hire her. She understood what I wanted from a coordinator and did everything she could to lend a helping hand. I didn't have a worry in the world on my wedding day and that was because of her.

Helena is such a pleasure to work with and has so much knowledge about weddings and the entire planning process. You will not be dissappointed if you hire her.

Helena made my future wife VERY comfortable. That to me is the best compliment I can give Helena. She gave good ideas and was always available to assist. During the wedding ceremony, Helena made sure everything went according to plan. Very thankful she was our planner.

Helena was an invaluable asset to our wedding during the planning process. We hired her for our day of coordinator plus for our May wedding in San Diego. Helena went above and beyond in giving us recommendations and in contacting and linking us with vendors. By the day of our wedding we felt very comfortable knowing that Helena would be there to make our wedding run as smoothly as possible. Helena helped us deal with a difficult situation with the reception sales manager. Luckily the sales manager was much more responsive with Helena than she was with us. If we had to do it all over again, we'd hire Helena in a heartbeat. She is very pleasant to work with, detail oriented, organized, and professional. We definitely used her opinion on more than one occasion. We've received many compliments from our guests about the wedding day and how smoothly it went.

Helena did a magnificent job coordination our wedding reception. The entire wedding went off without a hitch. We explained our vision to her and she understood and made it real! All that we asked her to do she did and much more, always going above and beyond. She exceeded our expectations and made our wedding a memorable one for us and our guest.

Throughout the wedding planning (even though we only hired her as a day coordinator) she would keep in contact with us, checking in to see how everything was going and find out if there was anything she could assist us with.

Above all Helena is a true professional, very organized, detailed and a great person. She is amazing and we would highly recommend her to anyone who is planning a wedding.
