Sabrina was amazing!! Selecting our wedding planner was one of the most important parts of our wedding and we wanted to make sure that we found the best one in town. WOW, we definitely did!! Thank you so much, Sabrina, for making our dream wedding come true!! Sabrina was extremely professional, helpful, responsive, patient, detail-oriented, organized, and well prepared. She though everything through far before we could, and had any of our questions answered right away. She also has an amazing reputation with other wedding vendors- such as DJs, videographers, photographers, venues, etc. and because everyone loves her, they will often offer a discount because she is your wedding planner. Grazie mille, Sabrina, for helping our dream wedding become a reality!! It was so much fun working with you and we had such a memorable time, thanks to you. You fit right in with our families, and we felt like we had known you forever! I highly recommend Sabrina to everyone-- trust us, you will be so grateful you did! Thank you Sabrina!!!!

Sabrina Cadini was personable and a great listener to what we could do ourselves and what we needed help with. We are an older couple and she was extremely helpful with suggestions for handling all the generations that would attend the wedding. Her suggestions for vendors were right on; since I have hearing problems on the phone, I relied heavily on her to interact with the vendors which she did thoroughly and graciously. She was timely in reminding me when partial payments were due and meticulous in following up on gathering all the little things that really made the difference when the day finally arrived. She was there for me every step of the way from looking for a dress through collecting the unopened bottles of wine after the reception. She kept me calm when the details began to overwhelm me... for which I was most grateful. She was realistic about cost and practical at each step of the way. I would recommend her in heartbeat. Her calm sense of humor saw us through the wedding ceremony at the church through the reception at a local golf course.

If you want a wedding of a lifetime. . .

Book Sabrina before you read this to make sure she is still available:

I don't even know where to begin in my praises of Sabrina. She is professional, made our day an event than just a wedding, and. . .she has a lovely Italian accent you can listen to all day. My wife and I get along better than most couples and I can say Sabrina saved our marriage by not planning this event on our own. We thought about saving money by putting on a wedding on our own and were smart enough to think it through.

Within hours of signing the contract, Sabrina had already worked wonders. She had a Pinterest account for us to share her ideas and she provided us vendors that saved us an amount greater than the services we purchased. She completely went above and beyond everything we had imagined which included speaking with all the vendors which I thought I would be confident in doing; I was not.

Sabrina put us on a very doable schedule and we still procrastinated to the very day of the wedding. Even still Sabrina did not bat an eye and provided a wedding that far exceeding any of our expectations. Our entire wedding party loved her from the moment she said hello and we've had friends and family members make comments such as "wedding of the century" and "that won't be topped anytime soon". We can't even take credit for any of it other than we made the smart decision of booking La Dolce Idea.

Ladies: You will fall in love with Sabrina from day 1 and her ideas will far exceed that perfect wedding you had dreamed about.
Guys: I'm a guy that wanted to get married in a courthouse, loves football and couldn't imagine a wedding being worth the time or money investment. Sabrina saved me money, any potential wedding arguments, and had me talking about my wedding to everyone rather than football the following week.

Out of all of the decisions my husband and I made in the process of planning our wedding, choosing Sabrina as our wedding planner was by far the best one! She is very knowledgeable, experienced, and organized when it comes to every last detail, and I was amazed at how she made our vision come to life on our wedding day. Beyond her skill and expertise, her personality is so warm and pleasant, and her calm energy kept everyone in good spirits! She also has a wonderful eye for design and aesthetic details, which comes in handy. My husband and I are truly sad that our working relationship with Sabrina is over, we really miss her! We hope to have another big party someday and have her plan it. :) We would highly recommend Sabrina's services to anyone looking for an industry expert, and would assure them that they will be able to sit back and relax on their wedding day. You are in the best hands with Sabrina!

April 11th, 2015, had to have been the most flawless day in history! At least, that's the way our wedding went down in the books! Sabrina, by far was the best choice ever. The last thing someone wants on their wedding day is to have to worry about a thing. And that's exactly what we did, nothing! Sabrina, is the goddess of wedding planners. She coordinated every second of our beautiful day. The only thing we ever worried about was if our glasses were kept full and if we needed a touch up on our lip gloss. Actually, that's a fib, Sabrina even kept out glasses full through out our special day! She not only tailored to our every need, on this special day. She made herself always available, from the smallest details; personalizing our favors, decorating/arranging our beautiful cake table, holding our hands and reviewing every detail needed the day before, during our rehearsal, guiding us with a personalized checklist nearly a year before our wedding, endless emails and so much more! Our friends and family could not stop boasting about our wedding being....THE BEST WEDDING EVER! We owe this all to Sabrina and her amazing gifts of professionalism, efficiency and enthusiasm! Thank you Sabrina!

Sabrina quite literally saved our wedding. We had hired another wedding planner who was unable to perform, and Sabrina came in on 9 week's notice and was able to pull everything off without a hitch. She's unbelievably easy to work with, exceedingly nice, and very detail oriented. Sabrina is also highly responsive & well-respected in the industry, which made last minute planning that would not have otherwise been possible appear seamless to my (now) wife & me. During a very stressful period, she was able to take the pressure off of us so we could enjoy our wedding planning, again. I could not provide a more glowing recommendation for a wedding planner, and would highly recommend her for any and all event planning.

Sabrina always respond to your request right away. She gives good advises, is very flexible in her schedules and ask all the questions she needs until she is sure she understood what the bride wants. She was our daughter's wedding planner, and then our daugther in law wedding planner and in both events she excelled.

Sabrina was great! She was extremely responsive and professional in all our interactions. She really made us feel like she was fully invested and personally interested in what we needed and wanted for our wedding. Everything on the day of the wedding went smoothly, and guests told me later that they were also impressed with Sabrina's professionalism and efficiency. I'd recommend her to anyone who wants a worry-free wedding!

I knew Sabrina was the perfect match the minute I met her. I think the same name is what initially prompted me to contact her, and I am so thankful that I did. Not only is she extremely professional, but she is so amazingly sweet, organized, chic, and above all - she makes her couples feel comfortable (this is key when planning such a big event). The biggest trait you'll see in Sabrina is her sense of calmness, which I think is pretty amazing considering her line of work. She never lost her cool, she had a great way of giving her input and offering amazing suggestions in a way that didn't seam pushy, but rather eye-opening. My husband and I were pretty much on our own with the wedding planning and all the decision making that went with it, but meeting with Sabrina made the process smooth and easy going. No doubt, I still stressed my butt off - mainly just working so much and not having family or friends around, but always keeping close ties with Sabrina via e-mail, texts & phone calls made it SO much helpful and easier, especially for a 300+ wedding like mine. I would highly highly recommend her. One of the best decisions I've ever made!
