Claudia was my day of coordinator for my wedding. I was planning my wedding all the way from the Philippines and she was very accomodating. I met her 3x before my wedding which actually felt like she was more than just my day of coordinator. She made me feel relax and secure about the wedding, gave ideas, and knew what to do when stuf weren't going as planned. We did a lot of DIY for my wedding, she was very very helpful setting up the place. Claudia went over and above what we expected. I actually felt she was a bridesmaid and I consider her now more than a vendor but also a friend. You won't go wrong if you get her for your wedding!

My husband and I planned most of our wedding ourselves, but we felt we needed a day-of coordinator to allow us to enjoy our wedding day with as little stress as possible. Claudia of One Darling Day proved to be a great choice. We met with her four times over the course of planning, and she asked us all the right questions to make sure we had thought of everything and also offered suggestions on how to achieve the vibe and look we wanted. Her rates are competitive and she is enthusiastic and organized. Our ceremony and reception couldn't have been more seamless, and Claudia played a big part in that. I highly recommend One Darling Day.

When my fiance and I were told we were required to get a day-of coordinator for our 02/28/2014 wedding at Castle Green, I'll be honest - we were a little stressed out about it. With a budget for everything, we didn't see why it was necessary. BOY, were we wrong.

I searched dozens of wedding coordinator/planner services and they were all terribly overpriced or they only offered month-of services. We needed a coordinator that was detail oriented, down to earth and could take everything I planned and run with it. Then, I found One Darling Day. From the initial meeting, Claudia listened to what my fiance and I had to say about how we envisioned our wedding day. She took notes, made suggestions and was super relaxed. We met with Claudia 4 times over 4 months and exchanged countless emails and texts. Claudia is also pretty networked in Pasadena/LA and was able to suggest potential vendors for us to contact (she suggested the awesome DJ we hired).

It rained so hard on our wedding day that certain items on our timeline flew out the window. People arrived late because of traffic, photographers couldn't get certain shots, etc. who knows how many other hiccups happened? As a bride, I can't tell you how comforting it was to know that Claudia handled everything with grace and poise. If there were problems, no one knew. She kept us on track as much as possible and was this ninja behind the scenes. It was a beautiful...DARLING day.

To place the entire day of one of the most important moments of your life into the hands of someone else is not easy. But working with Claudia was so amazing...she gave my now-husband and I the greatest wedding gift: a smooth running, fun filled, worry free day. In addition, none of our family members missed anything because they weren't responsible for details.

Even if your venue doesn't require a day-of coordinator, hire this woman! She is a Godsend and her services are worth every penny of investment!

We are so happy we chose to have Claudia coordinate our wedding day. We got so much more than a day-of coordinator. Claudia met with us multiple times leading up to the wedding to go over all of the details. It was invaluable to have someone who had done this many times before who could ask us all kinds of questions that we hadn't even considered. We trusted her and during the planning process my husband and I both found ourselves saying "I'm not worried. Claudia will handle it". I firmly believe the day would have been much more stressful for us and my wedding party (not to mention the vendors) if Claudia hadn't been there to orchestrate everything. We had an off-site wedding where everything had to be brought in and she handled it very professionally. Everyone could relax and enjoy the day. Even the vendors seemed relaxed because they knew Claudia had everything under control. We highly recommend her.

Claudia and One Darling Day made our wedding day perfect! Everyone recommended that we get a day-of-coordinator, but we didn't truly realize how necessary it was until the day of our wedding. From the first time we met, Claudia was very warm, professional and organized. She gave us great recommendations and guidance in planning our big day and met with us several times before our wedding to make sure we had everything in order. During the wedding she made sure everything went as planned, staying till the very end of the reception. It was so nice that at the end of the night, when we thought we'd have to pack up everything we wanted to take home, Claudia had everything already packed on carts for us to take to our cars! Many of the day-of-coordinators we researched were quite expensive, but One Darling Day was very reasonable and provided much more than what we paid for. Thanks for everything Claudia!

I knew I wanted to hire a wedding coordinator but was feeling guilty about the possibly unnecessary expense so when our venue informed us that they required us to have a day-of coordinator I was secretly thrilled. I met with a few other coordinators and despite the pricing being the same, I decided on Claudia because she spoke Spanish and seemed to be very easy going.

Leading up to the wedding I was very nervous, communication was not the greatest as I would have to follow up in order to get responses. Also, meetings didn’t go quite as stated in the contract and I do believe that she was late to most meetings. As another reviewer wrote, she seemed somewhat overwhelmed. Despite all this, she was flexible and attentive about capturing our vision for the day. Being highly (okay, maybe too..) organized, I had very specific instructions on what needed to happen at what time and where things needed to be placed, etc. At times, I almost felt like she had hired me. Despite all this, the big day went pretty smoothly. There were no fires to put out, at least none that I was aware of. BUT there were a few things that could have been coordinated better. For example a few awkward pauses in between activities although this is partially the band’s fault and also I was so hot the last two hours of the wedding and could not find anyone (Claudia, her assistant, or the venue manager to turn the air up.)

Overall she delivered mostly what was promised but I would have liked for Claudia to have been a little more professional/organized and on top of it like the some of the other coordinators I initially met with.

She definitively stays on top of every detail that is needed. We wish we could hire her again but our plan is to get married only once! We don't have enough words to express our gratitude.

Claudia Casanova was a gem of a find in a pool of wedding planners. I had a hunch about her that she would be our gal and I was right. We were so grateful to have her as our day of wedding coordinator. Every time we met we were able to accomplish all the goals we were aiming for, addressed all concerns, and exchanged ideas. A few days before the wedding we had one problem with our seating chart order. It was not delivered correctly. The night of the wedding Claudia solved the problem and everything, and I do mean everything went smoothly. We never worried about a thing, she was always on top of it. All of our friends and family have her to thank too. Everyone is raving about the wedding!!! Claudia is 100% at the top of her game and I would consider her a dear friend.

We had a great time working with Claudia as our Day-Of-Coordinator. On a day as crazy as your wedding day, it really helps to have Claudia cover your back and make sure all the small details are taken care of. I didn't have to worry about where my vendors were or whether my decorations were being taken care of, Claudia helped me with all that! Even though I didn't find her until about two months before my wedding, she took the extra time to meet with me several times before the big day to go over all the details. I'm definitely grateful I had her help!

I'm so glad for choosing Claudia as our day-of wedding coordinator. We met several times before our wedding to get all the details settled and organized. She asked great questions, and even brought up things that I didn't think to think of! Yes, she is that good. Our reception was perfect, she made sure that we ate (because as bride and groom we are walking around and talking to everybody), and that the program went smoothly. There was a bit of DIY/decor that I put together for her and she executed everything perfectly. I highly recommend her to anyone that is getting married and needs a highly organized person to do day-of coordinating services.

I didn't have to worry about a thing on the day of my wedding because I knew she had everything under control. She kept the entire day/night on schedule and even more importantly she made sure everything looked beautiful and that everyone was happy. My wedding was absolutely perfect and I couldn't have done it without her. I HIGHLY recommend her.

Claudia was technically my day of coordinator - but she was helpful and available for months leading up to the wedding as well. I'm very particular and a bit of a control freak -- but Claudia dealt with me perfectly. In our last few meetings when we were really getting down to then nitty-gritty, I could tell that she got our ideas and vision for the wedding (she was remembering the smallest details that I'd already forgotten). And when the day came - she rocked! She put the wedding together and ran the day exactly as I would have if I could - if not even BETTER! She did an amazing and incredible job. Our wedding was super non-traditional and she rolled with it all and made everything work out perfectly - absolutely perfect!
During the wedding she was one step ahead of everything and we didn't have to worry or think about a thing - all we had to do was get married and have the best day of our lives! I can't thank her enough -- and I would totally recommend her!
Also wanted to add that she's a lot of fun and you can tell she likes this kind of work - she seemed excited and really into it -- it made the whole experience even better :)

Claudia was my day of wedding coordinator. She was very nice, organized, and easy to talk to during our first meeting. She helped me with the rehearsal since I did not what to do at all. There were a few things we did not cover during rehearsal, such as the readings by the officiant. Since we did not rehearse that, our sand ceremony did not go as planned the day of. However, I think that may have been miscommunication on my part. She made sure I was taken care of by asking if I needed anything throughout the day and night. There were a few people walking around the reception area before the ceremony that she neglected to shoo out. But there was so much to be done, I am not quite sure what happened there. She kept the night moving along and followed the timeline I sent her. Overall, I was pleased with her service.

I hired Claudia based off of her reviews. Not only did she fail to meet my expectations, but I didn’t feel she was serious about my wedding.

Being the bride, I had minimal contact with Claudia on the wedding day. Afterward, the four people who dealt with her the most said she was just “okay”. Even a guest who owns a catering company told me she was “NOT good”. Hiring Claudia was a mistake. Especially considering that there were other options in the same price range.

Our contract stated we’d have three meetings. I only got one meeting, and she was late. One meeting was not enough for her to grasp all the important details she would need, and it showed on the wedding day. Because of this, I wrote her a very specific list of instructions, all of which were basic, including what I needed her to monitor during the event. She obviously never read the list (or disregarded it) because only a fragment of these important items were completed. For example, one was to have my mom make sure the centerpieces and decorations were correct for the reception. I followed up afterward and discovered that Claudia did NOT have her do this.

Moreover, as the wedding was in progress, she changed the timeline! This resulted in the videographers having to stay later for the final events of the evening. We were fortunate that they were so accommodating.

Claudia expressed at the consultation that she limits the amount of weddings she does to avoid overreaching herself, so I’m at a loss as to what happened. She couldn’t seem to commit the proper amount of energy and attention that a wedding needs.

I hired Claudia based off of her reviews. Not only did she fail to meet my expectations, but I didn’t feel she was serious about my wedding.

Being the bride, I had minimal contact with Claudia on the wedding day. Afterward, the four people who dealt with her the most said she was just “okay”. Even a guest who owns a catering company told me she was “NOT good”. Hiring Claudia was a mistake. Especially considering that there were other options in the same price range.

Our contract stated we’d have three meetings. I only got one meeting, and she was late. One meeting was not enough for her to grasp all the important details she would need, and it showed on the wedding day. Because of this, I wrote her a very specific list of instructions, all of which were basic, including what I needed her to monitor during the event. She obviously never read the list (or disregarded it) because only a fragment of these important items were completed. For example, one was to have my mom make sure the centerpieces and decorations were correct for the reception. I followed up afterward and discovered that Claudia did NOT have her do this.

Moreover, as the wedding was in progress, she changed the timeline! This resulted in the videographers having to stay later for the final events of the evening. We were fortunate that they were so accommodating.

One Darling Day responded with the following comments:

-Every wedding is very important to me as noted by the positive reviews I have received from previous clients. My response to this review is noted below by an email I wrote in response to this bride after her raising concerns after 30 days after her wedding and this review being written 5 months after her wedding, so it does raise question to this clients state of accuracy. Unfortunately we did not see eye to eye to a wedding I thought turned out very beautiful.

My original email response:

I am very saddened and surprised to read this email, as I really thought your wedding turned out beautiful and your friends & family were having a great time.
Also I received an email from Mark (her husband) a couple of days later saying how happy you and him were with the way everything turned out.

I do apologize if you felt that I was too busy for you pre-wedding, I never got that feeling from you and I wish you could have brought that to my attention, as I never want any of my brides to feel that way. And I could only remember ever being late to the venue walk thru about 15min but I was in contact with you and let you know that I was running late since I was coming straight from work and the meeting was close to my departure time from work. I always replied or called you back on any phone calls or emails within a reasonable time.

I am not sure why you think things were so confusing or disorganized on my end. As I did arrive early to the hotel to help with anything possible even though it wasn't asked of me or in my contract. In regards to decorations, as you know we had about an hour to setup after ceremony for reception. Your family was very sweet to help me and I thought we did a great job. We did the best we could with the word document but without having actual photos like we had discussed before, filling flowers, turning on candles, and trying to tidy up before guest enter within an hour I can honestly say and from doing many weddings your decorations looked beautiful.

I do apologize for the oversight on the announcement (centerpiece giveaway), It was a small error on my end.
My contract does state that I will store gifts and personal items away which I did in your bridal suit at venue. It would have been impossible for me to carry all those gifts to the hotel across the street, as I didn't have a trolley and to carry them by hand a couple at a time I think is unfair. Also I do believe that I asked if it was ok if I left the gifts in the bridal suit as I was told they would be put away in vehicle not in your hotel. I am not sure what was a mess, as I am not responsible for the complete break down of the venue. I am sorry that one of the bridesmaids gifts went missing, I really try my best to keep an eye on everything but I am only one person.
In regards to the ceremony, when I asked your bridal party how everything went no one brought any issues to my attention.And I think I made a really good connection with your MOH Mandy and officiant for them to feel open to tell me.

I do really appreciate your feedback and I thank you for writing this to me. I have been doing this for over 3 years and every wedding is very important to me. I can honestly say that I have always received positive response from every wedding I have done,so I feel extremely horrible that you don't feel the same. I know my price point is low compared to many day of coordinators and I did this because I know a lot of brides are on a budget and I want to be able to provide my service to these brides.
Thanks again for letting me your thoughts I do really appreciate it and will apply your feedback to future weddings. I wish nothing but the best for you and Mark.

As a DJ/Emcee, I have worked with Claudia from One Darling Day on a number of weddings and can't say enough great things about her.

If you are in need of an affordable event planner for your big day give Claudia a call. You won't be disappointed.

Claudia is an outstanding event planner and I highly recommend her to any bride whether on a budget or not. Claudia went above and beyond her list of provided services by having multiple meetings with me in person. She took diligent notes and photos during out meetings in an effort to help execute a very successful event. This also gave her the ability to really capture my vision and meet my expectations. She gave 100% + of herself the day of our wedding. She stayed until the very last guest left and made sure all of our belongings were placed in our room after the event! I have to include that not only is she a great planner but a great girl! Thank you so much for a beautiful wedding Claudia!!!

Claudia from One Darling Day assisted with the day of coordination for my wedding at Smog Shoppe in Los Angeles and we were so thankful for her services. She attended two on-site design meetings with us as well as exchanged countless emails in the months leading up to the wedding to ensure all of the details were finalized. My bridal party and I set up the venue on the day of the wedding (I was too detail obsessed not to be involved) and after choreographing our evening smoothly, Claudia mounted a 20 foot ladder to remove all of our decorations. We greatly appreciated her time and services and would recommend her in a heartbeat!

Claudia did a great job at our wedding in June. I found out afterwards that there were small emergencies, but she took care of them quickly and calmly and made sure I didn’t have to deal with any of it. She also has a great personality – the right mix of down to earth, calm and assertive, which made me feel at ease on my wedding day that everything was under control. I also love that she had great taste herself and would suggest how something should look if I wasn’t sure. She was great the month of the wedding too - she reminded me of all the necessary things ahead of time that I never would have thought of. We met several times and she came to two on-site meetings and even came to my house a few days before the wedding to help sort out the last minute details, which was a huge help. Would definitely recommend her!

Claudia of One Darling Day was my day-of coordinator for my wedding in late May 2012. I used her only for my reception, but my reception was a more complicated than usual set up. It was a venue where all decorations had to be brought in, and we served guests from food trucks. Claudia struck just the right balance between suggesting things we could do, while also letting us do things the way we wanted since we left a lot of traditional things out of our reception. She kept things on track for the night and made sure there was plenty of time for dancing (one of my main requests.) She met with us multiple times prior to the wedding (coming to us, which made our lives a lot easier), and did all of the legwork the day of so I didn't have to worry about anything. She is also a very easy, relaxed person to work with. She was always accessible by phone and text, available all the time and very good at keeping us on task so that just about everything was done by the time the wedding rolled around. For all of the services she provided, Claudia was a bargain! I highly recommend her!

Claudia is AMAZINNNG!!! If you are on the fence about hiring a coordinator or if your still looking for the right person... look no further! Claudia really made our day complete!! and wonderful!! We were able to enjoy our day to the fullest because Claudia was on top of everything! She is very detail oriented, attentive, quick and not only that.. she is very sweeeet!! Such a wonderful person! Seeing her when she arrived, really made me feel at ease and she made sure things went according to plan. During the planning process she even reminded me of things I had forgotten and helped me figure out what would work best. She even went with us to a meeting with venue and to our rehearsal! She was there every step of the way, helping, guiding and getting things done! She even contacted all my other vendors and emailed them the itinerary. She made sure I was doing okay and that I was getting what I really wanted. The venue told us last minute that we only had 1 hr for set up and Claudia went above and beyond and pulled it all off!! During the reception, my bustle came undone and she helped me to bathroom and SHE helped fix it!! I trully cant say enough about Claudia, her profesionalism and her services... Absolutely recommending her to anyone getting married!! make sure to contact her asap! to make sure she's available for your day!! Her prices are unbelievably affordable! and im in awe of everything she handled and she is worth every penny and MORE! Other coordinators that ive heard of have done much less and charged much more! She is such a gem!! If something went wrong, I have no idea because she made sure I was not bothered with anythng and enjoyed our day! Anywhere I was, she was nearby in case I needed her. Even my bridal party thought she was very sweet and other people thought she was my friend because she was soo nice and the chemistry i felt with her was like a true friend. I felt comfortable telling her my concerns from the very beginning and she made sure I got what i wanted! Thank you for everything Claudia! my owl friend... :)

Claudia was such a lifesaver through out the entire wedding planning process. We hired her for day-of coordination, but she was so much more! We met 3 times in person prior to the day of, including a site visit, and at each visit she provided a list of things for me to focus on, ideas for vendors, decor and overall emotional support. The week of she contacted all of my vendors as well as the wedding party to make sure everyone was on the same page and I could focus on relaxing and enjoying the pre-wedding festivities. As for the day of the wedding, I honestly have no idea if there were any problems at all with any vendors or last minute emergencies, because Claudia handled everything for me. I couldn't be more pleased with how she handled the entire event. I was a bit of a procrastinating bride, and she adjusted quickly to my style, never making me feel like I was far behind, and yet gently guiding me to get things done. SHE IS WORTH THREE TIMES WHAT SHE CHARGES! Book her today, and you can just focus on enjoying your wedding!!!

Claudia was my day-of Wedding Coordinator for my wedding which took place at my house. Because we are renting on a historic property, and the wedding was essentially in our back yard, I knew I needed someone who could understand my needs as work well with the owner of the property. So, I choose her partly because of her track record, but also because she had a calm demeanor that I was looking for. I booked Claudia well in advance (February for an August wedding) and she was with me every step of the way. She even spent extra time on meetings beforehand so that she could make sure every detail was accounted for. After a while, she felt more like a friend than someone I hired. She really "got" me and my style and the vibe I was looking for at my wedding and that was one of the things I most appreciated. Her being able to hone in on what I wanted, especially at points when I was overwhelmed. She helped me make decisions and move forward. On the day of everyone loved working with her and the whole thing ran without a hitch. I could sit back and be the bride! She executed the set-up exactly how I wanted it, she mobilized the staff and kept everything moving. Her assistance on the day of and her advice and guidance in the process beforehand was so helpful. I don't know how I could have done it without her.

She is so knowledgeable about everything relating to weddings, that she was able to give me great ideas for the reception..things that I would not have otherwise thought of.

She also has an extensive list of vendors that she can recommend. I was struggling to find a photographer, so I emailed Claudia to see if she could help. The very next day, she sent me a list of 10 photography companies. We ended up booking one of the ones she recommended and we couldn't have been happier with their quality of work!

Claudia truly goes above and beyond her job description. Our reception ran so smoothly because she took care of everything! Our guest felt taken care of and so did we! Claudia made sure we always had something to drink, that we got our food in a timely manner and that we were enjoying our day.

I would highly recommend One Darling Day to any bride who is looking for a responsible wedding planner who will make their dream wedding come true.

Claudia of One Darling Day did a fantastic job for my wedding. She truly provided me with 5 star service. I was definitely a last minute client. My fiance and I picked out the venue, caterer, florist, party rentals, and photographer and music and I thought that we were pretty much done and I thought I only needed help with my timeline. But once I met with Claudia she made me focus and helped me solve the other one thousand minor details that goes into running a good wedding event.

She met with a 2 times for the wedding face to face and we had multiple phone call sessions. She definitely punctual with her email as well. I loved her personality because she is so easy to work with she is able to mix her fun personality with professionalism. She was able to work with my vendors very well and all of my vendors provided me with the services and timeliness thanks to a large degree of Claudia's phone calls and emails to them which is saying a lot because she worked several vendors weren't as great returning emails or phone calls. She also created a timeline for the whole event and that is a great help for the bridal party and the vendors.

Our wedding was a little bit more complicated because it was a venue space only and all items needed to be brought in and I had two ceremonies ( Western and Korean) so there was a lot of juggling schedules and event space to make the wedding seamless.

She worked tirelessly on the day of the wedding and made my wedding day a success. A lot of friends and family said that our wedding was one of the best wedding that they had attended. Best of all, I was able to enjoy my wedding day:)

She also created a timeline for the whole event and that is a great help for the bridal party and the vendors.

Our wedding was a little bit more complicated because it was a venue space only and all items needed to be brought in and I had two ceremonies ( Western and Korean) so there was a lot of juggling schedules and event space to make the wedding seamless.

She worked tirelessly on the day of the wedding and made my wedding day a success. A lot of friends and family said that our wedding was one of the best wedding that they had attended. Best of all, I was able to enjoy my wedding day:) Read less

I had a very untraditional wedding and Claudia took it all in stride and made sure that everything came together just as I had envisioned. We met several times before the wedding, including two set up and timeline meetings, once at the site, and once for a ceremony rehearsal. She was always available by phone and through email. She suggested several things that I had not even thought of that prooved to be invaluable, including a clean-up crew so family could just enjoy the night, and a water and snack table to keep guests satisfied before the real food and drinks arrived. She ensured that vendors were right on time, gave them alternate driving directions for a faster trip, and kept the night running smoothly. I didn't have to worry about a thing. Several guests and even the other workers commented on how friendly and on top of everything she was. At the end of the night, she made sure everything was packed up and ready to go, and she did the final walk through with the site manager. My big day would not have been possible without her. Thanks, Claudia!

Claudia at One Darling Day was so amazing to work with. She was incredibly affordable, and did so much above and beyond what we expected. She met with us several times before the big day and even went to the venue with us on more than one occasion. She had recommendations for other vendors, and to-do lists to keep us on track. Even though we booked her for "day-of" services only, she gave us all of that, and also led our rehearsal the day before. On the day of the wedding, we went to our suite to get ready and when we emerged, everything had been taken care of. She never once had to interrupt us to ask us questions of where things should go, and any emergencies that may have happened were kept away from us completely. Also, ours was a same-sex wedding, and she treated us with complete respect--our genders were a non-issue in terms of her treatment of us. Not only was she incredibly competent and professional, she was also fun to be around. I can't give a higher recommendation than the one I give to her. Don't hesitate--call One Darling Day! You won't regret it!

We had a beautiful wedding and Claudia was a wonderful, professional, organized, and a helpful planner. She often went above and beyond what I ever could have hoped for in a wedding planner. I was able to have the wedding of my dreams with the help of Claudia. My family was able to relax and enjoy the day without having to worry about who was going to make sure everything went according to plan; we owe that to Claudia and the wonderful and amazing caterer! Thank you so much Claudia for making our wedding day even better than "one darling day" but instead a day full of beauty and magic that we will remember always!!!!

Claudia provided us with exceptional coordination services from moment we first met. She was open to our ideas and unique needs and did not impose any of her thoughts upon us. She met with us on several occasions and was prepared with questions and concerns at every meeting. She is professional, organized, honest, courteous, timely, flexible, and someone you can definitely rely on. I was able to hand over all of the details to her and trust that she would do a great job. My husband and I were able to relax and enjoy our perfect day. We know we made the right choice when we teamed up with Claudia.

I was a complete and utter mess before Claudia entered my life as a bride to be. I needed a plan and I was blessed with a planner from above! I don't think that my wedding would of gone so smoothly without the help of Ms. Casanova. She organized all the "worst case scenarios" that would have with out a doubt strained MY day. I worked on the small things like finding the perfect dress while she worried about the big things that really make a wedding a success. I understand now why there is a reality show called "bridezilla", it's because they don't have Claudia Casanova.

I used Claudia as my day-of coordinator and could not be more pleased with her professionalism and follow-through. We met and discussed my expectations prior to the wedding and it was wonderful not to think about minor details on my big day (you'd be surprised at how many such details there are to stay on top of!). She was uber-organized, enthusiastic, genuine, and very easy to work with. I wholeheartedly recommend One Darling Day!

Hi, I highly recommend Claudia as a wedding coordinator. I wasn't even planning on hiring anyway but as my wedding date got closer I realized that I did not want to burden my friends or family with all the details, I wanted everyone to enjoy themselves including my husband and I. It was totally worth having her there. She was very organized and was able to execute all the little details that I had arranged. She was willing to work with me, even though it was a last minute decision on my part. I couldn't have been happier with her service and would definitely encourage brides to hire a day of wedding coordinator. Thanks

Claudia was great, she was referred by friend that used her service for her wedding.
She was very professional and easy to work with. She got a long with all the vendors and was very organized. I did meet other coordinators but I just felt really comfortable with Claudia. I would definitely recommend her service to other people, oh she also helped me with decor ideas and was available when I needed a second opinion. Two Thumbs Up.

I was able to pass all my information to Claudia and she was able to take care of all the things I was worried about. She also has great taste and asked her opinion on some things I wasn't sure about. If you don't have someone you trust the day of your wedding I would definitely recommend Claudia, its worth it for your peace of mind. One Darling Day is great, thank you so much.
