As a bride to be, I couldn't get away from people telling me to take a breath and really enjoy this day because it goes by in the blink of an eye. As a wife, I am happy to be able to say that I did enjoy our day and it didn't fly by. I depended on Colette to make sure everything happened when and where and how it was planned to happen... and she did! I didn't have to think about anything except saying "I do" and dancing the night away.

She truly cares for her clients and would go the extra mile if she thought she could make ANYTHING easier for them. She's a pleasure to deal with and a complete professional.

Colette and her team were awesome! I contracted Colette for day-of-coordination and like brides before me have indicated, it was one of the best decisions I could have made. She was affordable, kind, helpful and professional… Of course, a few issues arose on my wedding day but she and her team took care of it. They only involved me when needed. My day was great… Colette even shared ideas and information for other vendors. I was looking to cut back on costs and wanted to purchase some of my flowers at a discounted rate. As a result, I couldn’t use a normal florist and needed someone to put together my bridesmaid’s bouquets. I used Colette’s recommendation and they turned out great. I was very pleased with them… Overall, I would definitely recommend Collette and her team.

Having Pastore Events on our wedding team was one of the best decisions we made. Colette and her team attended to every detail large and small for the wedding ceremony and the reception. She provided ideas and options that we had not thought of. She was rock-solid dependable and worked in sync with the caterer and the DJ to make the wedding day flow flawlessly. If you want peace of mind and absolute confidence that your special day will be perfect, then you want Pastore Events to be part of your wedding team.

Hiring Colette and her team was the best decision I made for our wedding, second to marrying my husband. From the first meeting she understood not only what we wanted, but what we needed. She helped us organize and simplify what felt like an insurmountably crazy day. She helped us stay in budget and kept me calm. And probably most importantly, she fielded questions and calls from my mother when I just couldn't take it anymore! The day of the wedding, she was a dream. I don't like to give up control easily, but she had everything running like a well oiled machine. The little blips that inevitably come up were dealt with instantly and we all had a wonderful time. Every single personal item used for the wedding or reception was safely returned to us, a detail my mother still calls me to marvel about. "Colette didn't miss a thing!" My mother is absolutely right. I'm so glad we had Colette on our day.

I hired Colette as a "day of" consultant for my wedding in Philadelphia and would recommend her and her team to anyone looking to take a little stress and work off their plates on the big day. While hired for "day-of" services, Colette and her team were involved nearly two months out, attending walk troughs, vendor meetings, timeline coordination and regular phone and email communications. Having our wedding at a "raw space" meant that there would be a lot of hands in the pot as we had to bring everything in and Colette and her team worked tirelessly all day to keep the vendors on track, the services and "vision" of the day in order, and the guests and bridal party relaxed and on schedule. Colette is organized, professional and an all around nice and friendly person.

Colette of Pastore Events, LLC was a pleasure to work with. She was my Day of Coordinator but went above and beyond than just the day of. Colette was incredibly responsive to e-mails and phone calls not only with me but all my vendors as well. She is calm, organized (I constantly referred to her timeline), responsible, and was a positive individual to work with on the Big Day. She has great ideas buy listens to your wishes, questions and concerns. What are you waiting for.... call her!

Colette and her team were VERY helpful on my big day! Every time I emailed or called Colette leading up to the day, she was extremely responsive and helpful. I originally did not think I needed a wedding coordinator day of but her and her team made it SO nice to just sit back and be able to enjoy the day. I did not have to deal with anything behind the scenes. I also had a ton of DIY that they made sure to set up and bring for me so that I did not have to worry about that either. I highly recommend getting a day of coordinator so that you can relax and enjoy your day and Colette and her team are a GREAT one to choose!

Colette was an amazing help that made our wedding day go so smoothly. Throughout the process she was great at organizing our timeline, all our contracts, and vendors.

The day of, she made sure everyone was where they should be, when they should be. I would recommend her and her team to anyone looking for someone who needs help planning their wedding. And if you don't think you need help, trust me, you will :).

I was "the father of the bride" - and this was the first wedding in which I had any real role since my wife and I got married 32 years ago. I had no idea of everything that goes into making a successful wedding. The complexity was just off the charts. It seems like there was a thousand moving parts.

Collette was able to orchestrate everything flawlessly. The music, the flowers, the caterers, the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, a team of photographers and videographers and especially the wedding party, including a two year old flower girl plus ten groomsmen and bridesmaids were all perfectly coordinated, thanks to her.

My daughter and my wife, plus, of course, all the guests, were able to simply enjoy the day.

If you are uncertain about whether a wedding planner and coordinator is really necessary, take it from me - you want one. And I don't know if you could ever find a better one than Collette. If I could give more than five stars, I certainly would do so.

I can’t tell you how many moments I said “Thank God for Colette!” Colette and I are old friends from high school, so I was fully aware of her impeccable taste and amazing organization skills, but it wasn’t until after I worked with Colette in a professional relationship as her client that it was revealed just how professional and incredibly talented she is as a wedding planner.

Working full time, raising a two year old AND planning a wedding - I thought I was going to have a nervous breakdown, but Colette assuaged my fears with her extensive knowledge of the wedding industry, amazing list of references and pair that with her incredible taste - I was able to relax and enjoy the planning process. I even had people tell me I was the calmest bride they’ve ever met.

There are just so many facets to a wedding that I could never have dreamed of, and every time I ran into a road block, I’d call upon Colette and she’d walk in with her Coach purse and binder and with a snap of her manicured fingers, she’d magically fill in the gaps and meld all the facets together to make it a perfectly run, well-oiled machine. She makes it all look effortless and that’s the work of a true professional.

With Colette’s growing and expansive knowledge of the wedding industry, amazing references, terrific organization skills, friendly and humorous disposition and her impeccable taste, she will give you a wedding of legendary status. My wedding day was perfect and it was the stuff romantic movies are made of. I overheard my husband’s godmother saying “All my other nieces and nephews are going to have a hard time trying to top this wedding!”

I hadn't planned on having a planner for my wedding. I wanted to do everything myself and am admittedly, a bit of a control freak- but a few months before my wedding- it became obvious I couldn't do it all myself-and didn't like the idea of asking friends and family to take time out of enjoying the day I had planned to help. The stress was mounting when I found Colette Pastore.
Colette and her team were professional, organized, friendly and put me at ease the last few months before my wedding. I don't know what I would have done with out her (really.. I don't!)
From our first meeting till the moment she left our Wedding, I knew I was in good hands. She was always willing to share advice and she even put together a wedding timeline for us so all of our vendors and family members could be on the same page. If you're thinking about hiring Colette- don't hesitate- she's the best!

Colette was a life saver during the days leading up to my wedding. I was able to enjoy relaxing with my family and fiance and not think about wedding tasks thanks to Colette. She made a time line for the day of the wedding and contacted all the vendors to confirm arrival times, etc. At my reception she made sure everything went smoothly and took care of a lot of the extra stuff so I could enjoy my wedding day! She made sure my guests with special dietary needs received their correct meals. She made sure that things like the gifts, flowers, and the cake top were put in the correct cars at the end of the reception. Also, before the ceremony she (luckily!) had tweezers, scissors, tissues, lip gloss, make-up powder . . . you name it, we asked for it and Colette had it!

Colette of Pastore Events, LLC was a pleasure to work with. I had my wedding pretty much planned but we came to the issue of Day-Of Coordination. Obviously a Bride is completely swamped the day of with pampering and spending time with her bridal party and family. We hired Colette to do our Day-Of Coordination for us. She organized a lovely breakfast as well as lunch, ensured that all of the final payments for the vendors were taken care of, coordinated with my hair dresser when she was almost an hour late as well as coordinated with my photographer and the Groom and Groomsmen for pictures. She took ALL of the stress out of my big day because I knew everything was under control. She also helped along the way with little questions here and there about my wedding. Colette always replied within 24 hours and was professional. She made my day stress-free and I was able to enjoy myself completely. I can't recommend her enough. Pastore Events, LLC is FABULOUS.
