We got married at Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast August 27, 2016. Henriette is a manager at Briar Patch and she also offers wedding coordination services. We booked her for day of coordination which I HIGHLY recommend to anyone who is looking for a stress free wedding day. She did an amazing job helping us with tips and suggestions for our wedding day. It was also incredibly helpful to have her go over details with our vendors and make sure everything was set according to the plan. Henriette was out of the country for our wedding day and her assistant Ali helped on our wedding day. Ali did a wonderful job setting up our ceremony and reception sites and making sure everything ran smoothly. Henriette and Ali did a great job making us feel well taken care of and I couldn't recommend them more.

We are so happy we booked Henriette! Her help was indispensible, particularly in the early and late stages of planning and especially day of.

We contracted with Henriette to help us gather select vendor quotes (caterer & hotel) in addition to her month-of coordination services. Henriette listened carefully to our needs, and she gathered a large number of quotes for us. (We chose Culinary Delights by Feist, which I also highly recommend!)

From there we did most of the planning and only checked back in with Henriette when we had specific questions about the venue (Henriette is also a manager at the Briar Patch), or advice for things like tipping and timelines. Henriette wasn’t always immediately responsive to email, but she would always respond if we sent a followup email, and she made up for it in the quality of information that she provided.

A few weeks before the wedding, she checked back in for a list of our vendor contacts and a timeline. She introduced us to an app called AllSeated, in which she had drafted a seating layout that was specific to the venue - the seating chart process was fun and painless! Also, when we mentioned that we hadn't yet booked a shuttle service from the hotel to the venue, she diligently and efficiently gathered several quotes for us from local transportation providers and successfully negotiated a discount for our final choice.

On the day of our wedding, she was responsible for so much that ran smoothly that day: coordinating with the caterer, making sure chairs, flowers, and decorations were set, keeping us as on track with the timeline as possible & making little adjustments as needed. All this and more made us feel like we were in good hands. The whole weekend went incredibly smoothly and I was able to relax and enjoy without being bothered by logistics! I recommend the Briar Patch, Henriette, and Culinary Delights by Feist combo, if you want your wedding to be beautiful, relaxed, seamless, and delicious!

I got married on July 30th 2016 at Briar Patch B&B in Middleburg VA. Henriette is a manager there and also provides wedding coordination services. She did an absolutely terrific job as our day of coordinator!!!! I couldn't have asked for a smoother run day. She was able to wing it on the many decorations I had provided and found the perfect place for each of them to make both the ceremony and the reception stunning. She had some fantastic suggestions for vendors (we went with all of them and we're thrilled with the results) and she worked very well with the ones she didn't know.

The weather was looking ominous for that day but she was calm cool and collected and told us we could wait until pretty late in the day to make the call on whether to have it inside or outside. She was totally flexible with our requests and handled all interactions with family and friends so cheerfully! She is very good at her job and is not a pushover to the vendors.

Overall, I highly recommend her if you'd like to have your wedding day be effortless and seamless. What a gem!

We terribly regret hiring Henriette for our wedding at Briar Patch this July (partially because her fee was low but we didn’t realize that it is an absolute rip off). Interaction with her was very stressful, inefficient and several clauses of our contract were handled poorly and unprofessionally from her side. I would not recommend her to anyone, unless you are ready to have headaches at your wedding day.

Let me give you few examples:

- The wedding time plan was never finalized including the exact time that some vendors should have arrived. Moreover, a clear streamlined timeline was never distributed to all the vendors prior to the wedding, although it was part of the contract.

- With respect to any vendor, we set an appointment with them at the time of booking but she reversed those arrangements without consulting with us and even when we wrote her an email and explained why we like to stick to those timelines she ignored our email and changed the arrival time of the vendors.
-On the day of the wedding, despite clear instruction for the seating assignment, she mismanaged it and changed the seating assignments, causing us more headache.
-On the day of the wedding she didn’t distributed boutonnieres to everyone (several people walked on the aisle without their boutonnieres).
-She disappeared at the end of the party before closing the account with either of bride or groom.
-One of her job description was helping with the decoration and collecting them, pack or store them for us: this didn’t happen. We lost few items and we had to pack everything ourselves.


We came all the way from DC to meet her prior to wedding, but she spent no more than 30 min with us and we couldn’t finish our consultation meeting.

When I first started planning my wedding I didn't think I needed a Day of Coordinator - as an ultra organized/control happy bride I had so many lists down to the detail. When the weekend actually rolled around I was beyond thankful that I had booked Henriette to help me with my day. Henriette was a lifesaver. I could not have pulled my wedding off without her and her skill can not be overstated! If you're on the fence take it from this detail oriented perfectionist bride - you NEED Henriette!

As other newlyweds here have said, we could not have been happier with our wedding at the Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast Inn, with Henriette Buell providing day-of-coordination services. Our wedding was a fall themed wedding, but with non-traditional colors and many unique preferences that we brought to the table. I wanted to do most of the planning and coordinating myself, and Henriette convinced me that letting someone else direct people down the isle and check-in with the vendors was better suited for someone else other than the bride on the wedding day -- she was right. Henriette was easy to work with, and her services are what made our special day run perfectly.

We were pleased with her detail oriented nature and ability to listen to what we thought was important about our big day. We never felt like any of our requests were silly, too big, or too complicated, and she was happy to put us in contact with vendors from the area that sounded like a good fit for us. We even found our pie caterer through Henriette, which was a huge hit! Everything about her was warm and helpful, and she really listened to our event preferences.

On the day of our rehearsal, she went out of her way to make and bring me a special cocktail in the cutest mason jar! I had never told her my preferences or asked that she wait on me, but she did this out of the kindness of her heart (and it helped with the nerves, too ;) )

As our wedding guests arrived, she and her staff made everyone feel welcome and special. She kept all of the vendors on time, made sure that they knew where they needed to be, and made sure that no entering guests saw me in my dress as my Dad and I hid near by. She even worked late hours to help with the event clean-up, beyond what she was required to do, just because she's awesome! AND, it was her birthday!! No one else is as good or as nice as Henriette.

Henriette is incredible. She is straight forward, well organized, and extremely pleasant to work with. Throughout our planning process, she made vendor recommendations, helped to communicate with them, and worked her hardest to get us the best deal. With my husband and I working full time in the military, moving cross country, and busy schedules, she made our wedding possible.
Her price is extremely reasonable considering the amount of work she will put into your wedding. I highly recommend contacting her! We paid her extra to order and arrange our flowers, which was a steep task for our large wedding of 125. She performed marvelously and kept the stress low during our rehearsal and the wedding itself. I really can't say enough good things about her as a person and how professional she is.

You need Henriette as your coordinator for your wedding day!! She made the entire day feel stress free and all the events flowed seamlessly.

During the planning process I was not going to have a wedding planner or day of coordinator; but as my wedding date came close I knew that I did not want to put the responsibility of all the final details on my family or friends. I already had worked a little with Henriette through the Briar Patch, so after inquiring more about her services I knew she was just what we needed to make our day perfect.

Her attention to detail, flexibility, and laid back personality make her very easy to work with. I felt comfortable after our first conversation, when she told me not to worry and that she would make introductions to all of my vendors and help to make and solidify all final arrangements.

Our day would not have been so smooth and memorable if we had not been working with Henriette!!

We were so lucky to have Henriette as our day-of-coordinator. Her calm demeanor, straight forward communication, and wonderful presence was such a treat. She is organized, responsive, and so willing to help with anything she possibly can. From little things like grabbing a coconut water from her own house for a bridesmaid who got dizzy during the hot, outdoor rehearsal, to straightening up our cottage so it wasn't a mess after all of the girls got ready, she consistently went above and beyond the call of duty. But the greatest thing about Henriette is how she really was on our side. We always felt like she had our best interests in mind. She was even able to calm down our stressed mothers and gracefully run any and all interference, leaving my husband and I to just revel in the beautiful day. If you are on the fence about having a coordinator, hire Henriette! She will be your planner, confidant, and if you're lucky even a friend.

Henriette made my wedding day stress free. She was absolutely incredible to work with. She answered all my e-mails and calls almost immediately and ensured that my wedding went off without a hitch. I have had multiple guests compliment me since the wedding on how flawlessly it went and how it was the most seamless wedding they have ever been to. That is all a credit to Henriette. She timelined the day from start to finish and coordinated all the last-minute craziness of my mother in law bringing extra guests who hadn't RSVPd and the havoc that caused to my seating chart and place cards. She also made some of the enviable Pinterest touches for my wedding by making cute little chalkboard signs and table numbers for us, in addition to other beautiful touches like reusing our chuppah flowers and putting Mrs. and Mr. banners on the back of our chairs. She is seriously amazing. I don't know how anyone would get married without Henriette helping them out!
