Aimee was wonderful. She made my husband and my wedding so much more than we ever imagined it would be. All the vendors she recommended came through above and beyond just like her. I don't think we would have survived the planning process with out her. She really made our day something special to remember.

Overall Aimee made our wedding planning and execution process exponentially easier than it could have been if we did it ourselves. And for the rate she charged, we thought she provided a great amount of service. Our wedding was outdoors in the country so we had to make arrangements for EVERYTHING, which included a giant circus tent. Well, Aimee took charge and made sure everything was executed flawlessly. She made the whole process so much easier!! She was a god-send. STRONGLY recommend hiring her, especially if you are planning an unconventional, outdoor event!

Where do I start!! Aimee was the best decision that I made with my wedding. I got the partial planning, and she went so above and beyond for me. I had 3 months to plan, and Aimee didn't even hesitate to get on board with that!! We had a 200 person wedding, and I could not have felt more comfortable or ready for the event with Aimee by my side. All of my friends said I was the most easy going, relaxed bride on my wedding day and I have her to thank for this! She had the best advice from vendors, to creative ideas, to food varities, to ettiquite. Not only that but she was so sweet, easy to work with, friendly yet serious about her work. She was so on top of the entire process.. She thought of things I wouldn't have ever thought of! I was always told to get a wedding planner, and I could not have imagined having anyone but her. Would recommend her 100 times over!!

I cannot speaking highly enough of Aimee! She is incredibly talented and professional. She made all of our ideas come to life and the day turned out a million times better than I ever expected. All of the vendors she recommend were as talented and professional as she is. She is great at thinking of every detail, especially those that would never come to mind otherwise. I would highly recommend her services for any wedding!

Thanks to Aimee my daughters wedding was perfect! Aimee made the entire wedding planning process a dream. She came up with many wonderful ideas from decorating the ceremony/reception space, room layout, floral pieces, and so many small details that made the day unique and special. My daughter wanted a unique wedding. and thanks to Aimee she got it! I can't imagine not having Aimee involved, especially on the day of the wedding. She had to coordinate not only the bridal party but the many many vendors! Our entire family had such a stress free day (when the bride and MOB are relaxed you know everything is going great). She even stayed very very late after the reception was over trying to find a missing chair so that I would not be charged extra, which she did find a few days later! I could not have chosen a better person to help plan my daughters wedding! Thanks Aimee!!!

I had True Wedding Events do a full planning for my wedding. I got engaged in February 2012 and hired Aimee in March, with a wedding date of May 2013. So basically I had her from the beginning of my engagement and thank goodness. I was clueless, as most first time brides are, and Aimee was a great resource for wedding etiquette. All the vendors she recommended to me were great and everywhere I went other vendors kept telling me how great she was (which was very reassuring). She is very honest and doesn't beat around the bush, which I really appreciate, especially in stressful times. Her real skill, though, is her vision and great sense for decor. My wedding was absolutely GORGEOUS and she incorporated all the things I envisioned but a lot better than I could ever have. She even strung together the 1000 paper cranes I had made for the wedding- that is a LOT of cranes! The wedding day went flawlessly (as far as I could tell, but I'm sure she worked her butt off). I received so many compliments on how pretty everything was, and my husband and I were VERY happy with how the entire day turned out. I definitely recommend True Wedding Events for wedding planning. You will not be disappointed!

I worked with Aimee on my April 2013 wedding. We met with Aimee in September of 2012 and immediately hired her as a month of wedding planner/coordinator.
As an Interior Designer I had a little idea of what I wanted things to looks like but like most brides I had never planned a huge party let alone a wedding. Aimee was there to answer questions, provide ideas and guidance all along the way but her most important role came as we got closer to the wedding. She literally SAVED me from becoming a bridezilla!! She coordinated the rehearsal, helped me organize my contracts and deliveries with multiple vendors as well as general design and coordination. Aimee created a schedule for the Day of the wedding down to when I would be getting my hair done and when the groomsmen should be putting on their suspenders.
When it came down to the wedding day we didn't have to do a thing. Aimee and her team made sure that everything was set up how we envisioned and truly made the day stress free!! I cant stop telling my friends and family how great she was and how she made our day perfect!

As mother of the bride and a professional interior designer for 35 years,
I knew we needed someone to be our "day of coordinator". Aimee was much more than that for our wedding. My daughter lives out of the country, so Aimee and I worked very closely and extremely well together until she could arrive and be involved the last couple of weeks. Aimee is professional, efficient and responsive, and very creative. The wedding was just what we were hoping for, and it couldn't have been as successful without her. I am already recommending her to friends, she exceeded our expectations.

As a bride that lives very far away in Australia, it was difficult to plan a wedding in the US with such distance. Aimee worked very closely with my mother to help plan and execute a wedding that was beyond my wildest expectations. She was absolutely excellent, and I would recommend her to all of my closest family and friends. Friendly, professional, incredibly organised and responsive as well as creative and took initiative to think outside the box for any problem solving. It was perfect. Thank you Aimee!

Whenever my friends get engaged and ask for advice, the first thing out of my mouth is "Hire Aimee!" I'm really not sure how anyone plans a wedding without someone like her. Everything was perfect and ran as smooth as any bride could ever imagine. Even when someone spilled a glass of red wine all over my dress within 10 minutes of cocktail hour (yes that actually happened) Aimee was right there by my side with someone on hand that literally got rid of the stain almost instantaneously. We got one of her middle-packages but felt that she did so much more than that - she went totally above and beyond to make sure everyone was happy and that the pre-wedding stress was minimal (almost non-existant). I will also say this, and I feel that most brides can relate - there are times when you feel like no one is on your side or that no one has your back. As the bride, Aimee was ALWAYS on my side no matter what. It was great to know I had someone like her to turn to!! Hiring her was the best decision we made throughout our entire wedding planning process.

Katherine, Katherine. What do I say? I knew I wanted to work with you the moment we met! I loved that you both loved to dance and had funny names for your dance moves. I think it was the tiny tears you shed at our complimentary consultation that let me know you were a woman with a huge heart that was truly movd by the idea of getting married. That is something I cannot pass up! I hope you and Chris dance through life together and are always in step (no matter how crazy of a move it is!) with each other.

I started getting stressed at all of the wedding details and immediately knew that I had to find someone just as or more detailed than myself to coordinate the wedding! I found Aimee while reviewing all of the great reviews of her past clients on weddingwire and from the first time I contacted her and met her, i knew that I was making the right decision! Aimee is very nice and makes sure she knows exactly how you want your day to be. She is super responsive via email and phone and she made me feel at ease! Her attention to detail is awesome and she even made lots of suggestions on things that I had never even thought about or considered. She made sure the rehearsal went smoothly even with the ring bearer and flower girl running around and with family members all over the place! On wedding day, she made sure she let me know if she needed anything and followed the timeline we put together to a T. She was great at contacting my vendors to make sure everyone was there on time. The wedding day went smoothly and was exactly how I imagined thanks to Aimee. I would definitely recommend her services. You will not be disappointed! :)

Working with you Sarah was such a pleasure! You were without a doubt one of the most organized bride's I have ever had the privelege to work with! The only thing that surpasses your organizaiton is your kindness. You were so gracious at every turn to absolutely everyone. What a treat it was for me to witness your Korean culture and heritage that day and to be a part of it. You were (and are) stunning inside and out.

Aimee is an absolute professional, working from the start to finish in order to ensure the event she has promised. She is very creative and open to bride's ideas, helping to highlight your own style and opinion rather than steering your hand so that you wake up to the wedding day you have always dreamed of. You can trust that all options and opportunities will be offered to you with candor and the obvious intelligence of experience without having to worry you are missing out in the slightest.

True Wedding Events performed at the highest level. Aimee is a true professional and pleasure with whom to work. She met and often exceeded our expectations. The amount of detail that Aimee and her assistant put into our daughter's wedding was outstanding and everything she/we wanted and more. Every time we see someone that was at the wedding, they cannot stop talking about the evening. We have heard that it was the best wedding they have attended or that you sure have set the bar high. True Wedding Events recommended vendors who were of the highest quality and performed top level service. We would highly recommend True Wedding Events. They made our daughter's wedding day a very special celebration.

Magic! It was simply magic. Dan and I have been together many years now, we both have fulltime jobs and responsibilities that take us every which way, and all of our family live in other states, so we knew we couldn’t do this on our own. We weren’t sure what to expect when we started with Aimee but from the first, she took the time to get to know us as a couple and as individuals. She not only listened to our half-formed ideas of what we might like, but helped us bring them into focus and suggested ways to enhance them. We have a lot of interests and she was able to pull everything together into a cohesive picture, it all combined beautifully. She suggested vendors that we were very, very happy with, and helped us check out and hire the ones we found on our own. She helped us stay on time and on budget. All the way through the process she was great, but she was absolutely phenomenal on the day of. Dan and I just so happened to choose the record-breaking hottest day of the year for the wedding. Our ceremony was outside! No problem for Aimee, she found another area of the property that was completely shaded by large, lovely trees. And that was just the first of so many things. We worried about absolutely nothing. Aimee took care of us and all of our guests. She made little and big decisions all day and Dan and I never had one “oh no!” moment. We LOVED our wedding! It was so US! We were surrounded by the things, the themes, the colors, the people we loved, and we ENJOYED every second, we had so much fun. All of our family and friends have raved about the wedding; how beautiful it was, how much in love we looked, how smoothly it all went. I think the most telling comment was from a good friend of mine. She said, “You were so beautiful, and absolutely the most calm bride I have ever seen.” Thank you so much Aimee! Dan and I have tried to put our feelings into words above but it falls far, far short of the gift you gave us; a perfect day, a perfect memory.

Your review makes me misty eyed! When you said it was "Magic" to me the day after your wedding my heart did a little flip. Now to see it again in print just makes me so grateful for clients like you and being able to be a part of something you will remember forever. Thank you for being such a wonderful couple to work with!

Aimee proved absolutely invaluable while planning my daughter's wedding. I don't know what we would have done without her. From the early planning to the day of the wedding, she was always the complete professional with considerable knowledge and experience, but also so enjoyable and fun to work with.

Aimee has contacts with a large number of vendors and is able to make suggestions and recommendations based on this expertise. She also has a wonderful sense of style and taste and is quite creative. She even wrote the poem for my daughter's ceremony program!

I was diagnosed with breast cancer shortly after hiring Aimee and underwent numerous treatments and surgeries during the year we planned the wedding. I also continued to work during this time. It would have been impossible for me to accomplish all that is involved with not only planning a wedding, but making it a truly special event, without Aimee's assistance. She was always available and went out of her way to make it easier for me; once even bringing all the linen and china selections to my home so that I wouldn't have to travel to various locations around DC.

I had been told that planning a wedding was going to be very stressful and could sometimes lead to a few problems between mother and daughter! With Aimee's help, my daughter and I truly had a wonderful year of planning and a lot of fun, even with my condition. Although Aimee was working on weddings for several brides, she always made us feel that we were her only clients and that she would be available whenever we needed to speak with her or arrange meetings. Aimee was there to guide us through every phase; providing suggestions, timelines, and doing all the busywork.

On the day of the wedding, I was able to sit back and thoroughly enjoy my daughter's beautiful celebration. Aimee had everything perfectly orchestrated; from the caterer, the flowers, the tent, the music, the decor to all the special touches she had added. Everything was perfect. Aimee is the ideal wedding planner. I would highly recommend her to any bride and mother of the bride.

True Wedding Events responded with the following comments:

Now that wedding season has slowed down a bit I can finally respond! Working with you and Carly was just so much fun. You are truly an amazing woman and to think you were battling breast cancer as we worked together blows my mind. You would never know it. You are such an inspiration. Your laugher and love of life is truly special. When I was getting my icy diet coke fountain fix before heading over to the wedding site that morning (yes, my clients know I am a diet coke addict...not proud just being honest!) I stopped in my tracks outside the store. I thought I was going to cry or throw up. I have never been so emotionally invested in a wedding as I was for you, Carly and Tommy. Seeing you look so stunning and dancing was something I will always cherish. I also thank God for amazing weather that day because that is one thing I cannot guarantee and He provided. Love you all!

Aimee was the perfect wedding planner. We planned the wedding for over a year and it turned out to be more than I could ever imagine. My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer at the beginning of the planning. Aimee worked around her schedule and took on a great deal of the planning so that my mother could recover. She found the best vendors and kept in contact for us. She was always available for discussion and kept our vision of the wedding and made it even more magical. She made sure to keep in contact with us and organized face-to-face meetings with design boards. I would recommend Aimee to anyone planning a wedding. She made sure that we had no stress and when the big day arrived, I was so happy we had her to keep everything organized and running smoothly.

I appreciate all the time and effort put into our wedding, and it would not have been the same without help. We recieved lots of compliments and I don’t think it could have gone any better. Aimee was super responsive, valuable, and such a kind, welcome person. Lots of great ideas and feedback, and would recommend to anyone! We always say this was the best money spent for the entire wedding!

Aimee was AMAZING!! There is no way I would have made it through wedding planning with out her. She is so organized and creative. It was a huge help having her recommendations and advice, I ended up using every vendor she recommended and I was SO happy with every one! Aimee is also very creative and had great ideas for the ceremony and reception and really helped give my wedding a wonderful overall "feel".

I wasn't worried about anything on the day of the wedding thanks to her.

Dear Aimee,
(True Wedding Events)

I am so sorry it has taken me a bit to get this to you, but I just had to find the right words to say about you and the beautiful wedding you helped create. We wish we could give you 6 stars in every category because giving you only 5 stars makes us feel like we are under rating you! You went above and beyond!!

Aimee, no matter what I say or write, no amount of words can express the wonderful, incredible and amazing job you did to put our wedding together. You would think that somebody who has been with her college sweetheart for 14 years, who eloped 5 years back and who has 2 wonderful children would expect an average wedding and wouldn’t mind or pay much attention to the feelings her actual ceremony would bring. Aimee it was because of you, that on my actual wedding day, I felt as if I was walking on clouds; I can honestly say your slogan of “Your love...Your story” was synonym with how we felt. For the first time in my life, I felt I was a princess; I was the actual Cinderella walking down the aisle with her prince. Every step I took, every color you helped pick, every design detail, every idea and the worry free handling of vendors by you, made it so that I could finally have the wedding that I always wished for. The way you suggested we include both our children at being part of this wedding was amazing, I can tell you that my 5 year old daughter will remember this day for life. My wedding has left such a great and important image in her mind that I can only hope to top it off when her day comes.

Aimee you were more than a wedding planner, you became our friend, our guide and the one person whom we felt truly supported and understood by in such a time. It has been almost 2 months now since our wedding and we are still receiving compliments from our guest telling us that this was absolutely the best wedding they have ever attended. Furthermore they all mention how much they feel that our wedding planner went above and beyond to make it so memorable for all.

Aimee on behalf of the Rojas Family, we thank you for the wonderful wedding you helped us put together, for all the great memories you have helped us create for years to come, for you honesty, your hard work, your ideas, your friendship and much more. You have become so fond in our hearts; thank you, thank you, and thank you for being an integral part of our beautiful wedding and to help me realize my true Cinderella day!

Sincerely with love,
The Rojas Family

When it comes to my wedding, Aimee was the best decision I made. I was quite resistant to hiring a wedding planner as I was under the assumption that I could handle everything on my own, but boy was I wrong. Aimee though of options and scenarios that I never even considered. She was so thorough with double checking all of my work and went through all my contracts with such precision. She double and triple checked with all vendors and left no room for error. She had back up plans in mind in case anything did go wrong. Then on the day of she was such a savior. She was all the places I could not be, and she knew when to make executive decisions and when to call me with questions. She did not bother me with little details but at the same time she knew which details needed my attention. With the amount of work, detail, and precision Aimee exhibited, you would have thought this was her very own wedding. I was amazed at her expertise in this field, and with the professionalism and effort that she demonstrated. I would highly recommend Aimee for any event.

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding thanks to the outstanding service provided by Aimee Hardenbergh of True Wedding Events!! My fiancé and I were living in New York with plans to marry in Washington DC. Aimee helped ease our stress of planning an out of state wedding in just four short months. She was always accessible via phone and email whenever I needed her and always went above and beyond during our entire planning process. Aimee kept us on a timeline, listened to and understood our vision and was always ready with creative suggestions to ensure our wedding really represented us. Aimee thoroughly reviewed of all of our contracts to make sure we were getting what we wanted and were staying within budget. Aimee was always available to accompany me to meetings with the florist, the food tasting, hotel site visits and many meetings the hotel coordinator right up to the final walk through. There was so much that I could not have handled without her direction and guidance! Most invaluable was having Aimee there for us on the day of the wedding. She was our eyes and ears behind the scenes and made sure everything ran like clock-work. We didn't have to think about anything; she took care of EVERYTHING! Aimee is extremely professional, detail-oriented and had a handle on every aspect of the day-before and during and even after the wedding. Having Aimee with us truly allowed us to enjoy every carefree wonderful moment! Our wedding day was beautiful and met all our hopes and expectations. We are so grateful for Aimee’s never ending patience, attention to detail, and constant commitment to excellence. Working with Aimee was an absolute pleasure and the best decision we made!

We had the most carefree, wonderful day and it is all because of Aimee Hardenberg. She is AMAZING! She helped us narrow down our focus for the wedding so it truly was a day that represented "us". Aimee also had great suggestions for photos, decorations, food- she literally thought of everything! When my MOH accidently cut her finger while buttoning my wedding dress, Aimee swooped in like an angel, got the blood stain out and finished the buttons without a minute to spare! My family loved her and even my friends commented on how they wished they'd had her for their weddings! I can't say enough good things about Aimee- she is the best planner there is!

Aimee did an amazing job of planning every aspect of our wedding. She thought of every detail and made excellent recommendations regarding vendors. She helped us combine our two cultures (Greek and Indian) in such a creative way that really represented us. From the moment we met, she was completely professional, organized, responsive, and supportive throughout the planning. We saved hundreds of dollars by her reviewing all vendor contracts to ensure we were getting the most for our budget. I was totally relaxed on my day knowing that all deliveries, payments, pick ups, drop offs, set ups, phone calls, etc were taken care of. She did an excellent job of managing our 300 guests and keeping everyone on schedule. Her services were priceless and well worth every penny. She truly delivered the wedding of our dreams.

We couldn’t have pulled off the wedding we wanted without Aimee!! Funny thing, we weren’t even thinking about a wedding planner when we first met her. But, soon after we met, we saw how professional, efficient, creative, and…… well, the list just goes on, and on, and on. We just “clicked,” and we’re so pleased she was our wedding planner.

We found that she was so intuitive about our needs and she really took the time to get to know us. Aimee kept us on track for the 9 months we worked together before the wedding. She was such a great resource to bounce ideas off of and educated us about appropriate wedding etiquette. Most importantly, she kept focus on us, how we wanted our wedding to be and always kept our budget in mind.

Aimee really was a tremendous and invaluable help. She had such unique ideas to make our wedding fun (which was one of our biggest goals), she researched the details/cost, worked out logistics and presented a plan to us. She was a calming force during our crisis phone calls, gently nudged us to stay on our timeline, introduced us to excellent and inexpensive vendors and worked very well with our “must have” vendors. She was always there for us. Both of us truly loved our wedding, and Aimee/True Wedding Events made that possible. We had the greatest time of our lives. Aimee is excellent at what she does!!!

My, now husband, Mike and I met Aimee when we were visiting various venues for our May wedding. I fell in love with an old manor estate in Leesburg, VA that Aimee was showing. From the moment I laid eyes on the Manor, my vision for our wedding began to develop. Because the Manor was a unique venue, I knew that I would need assistance creating a fun and elegant “wedding-scape”. I also knew that I wanted a coordinator; Aimee was that and so much more! In less than 6 months, Aimee and I worked together to plan and execute the “most best” wedding ever! She skillfully used her experience, sophisticated aesthetic, strong organizational ability and remarkable attention to detail to create the most incredibly spectacular wedding that I never knew I wanted.
I am not someone who has been dreaming and planning their wedding since childhood and Aimee was critical in framing the planning process for me. She encouraged me to think about all things great and small. We discussed the ideas and details that made this not just a wedding, but “our” wedding. I especially appreciated Aimee’s inspired aesthetic. She was able to draw on her experience with the venue, knowledge of current trends and vendor capabilities to take our ideas to a higher level of sophistication and elegance. It was because of her extensive knowledge of the industry that, at every turn, she knew the perfect vendor that would deliver exactly what I wanted. Her recommendations were perfect for the overall vision that we were trying to achieve.
We were not without our planning challenges, however, Aimee dealt with each situation with determination and professionalism, always our advocate, mediator and cheerleader. She went above and beyond my expectation in her creative and tenacious problem solving; from the initial planning until the last guest departed, Aimee had it handled.
My wedding was, in a word, amazing. All the details were attended to and while I am sure not everything went according to plan, for me it was perfect. All I had to do was revel in the joy of the day and for that I give Aimee a tremendous amount of credit.
I highly recommend Aimee for anyone that wants a personalized and exceptional wedding; she has the talent and drive to make your occasion unforgettable.

Sincerely,
Nicole & Michael Rhodes

My, now husband, Mike and I met Aimee when we were visiting various venues for our May wedding. I fell in love with an old manor estate in Leesburg, VA that Aimee was showing. From the moment I laid eyes on the Manor, my vision for our wedding began to develop. Because the Manor was a unique venue, I knew that I would need assistance creating a fun and elegant “wedding-scape”. I also knew that I wanted a coordinator; Aimee was that and so much more! In less than 6 months, Aimee and I worked together to plan and execute the “most best” wedding ever! She skillfully used her experience, sophisticated aesthetic, strong organizational ability and remarkable attention to detail to create the most incredibly spectacular wedding that I never knew I wanted.
I am not someone who has been dreaming and planning their wedding since childhood and Aimee was critical in framing the planning process for me. She encouraged me to think about all things great and small. We discussed the ideas and details that made this not just a wedding, but “our” wedding. I especially appreciated Aimee’s inspired aesthetic. She was able to draw on her experience with the venue, knowledge of current trends and vendor capabilities to take our ideas to a higher level of sophistication and elegance. It was because of her extensive knowledge of the industry that, at every turn, she knew the perfect vendor that would deliver exactly what I wanted.

Aimee was wonderful! Honestly, I never realized that, as a grown woman, I would have to ask somebody so many questions. But Aimee always had an answer for me, and she always gave me options. She was very in tune with the "vision" we had in mind and was able to pull it all together for us. It was EXTREMELY helpful to have Aimee there for us on the day of the wedding. We didn't have to think about anything, she took care of it all. She is extremely detail-oriented and knew how to handle every situation before and during the wedding. She thought of things that I didn't even know we needed to plan for! And she was always in touch, constantly sending me new ideas through email, and always responding to emails and phone calls. Having Aimee with us truly allowed us to enjoy every moment of our wedding day!

Aimee's knowledge and experience was invaluable in the planning of my daughter's wedding in Old Town Alexandria. She helped us clarify our desires and guided us every step of the way. Her creativity, knowledge of vendors and attention to detail is amazing!

As the mother of the bride, I was surprised to have different thoughts and feelings throughout the planning process. In addition to the practical side of wedding planning, Aimee provided a listening ear and wise counsel concerning relationships and family dynamics.

It is rare to find a service that deserves a five star rating in every area, but True Wedding Events definitely does. Working with Aimee was a delight. We were working with a VERY compressed time line, but Aimee provided the direction and guidance we needed. I’m grateful for her accessibility, unfailing patience, knowledge of quality vendors, attention to detail, and constant commitment to excellence.

The wedding was beautiful and many of our guests have told us they had a wonderful time. However, the most important thing is that my daughter had a wedding day that met all her hopes and expectations.

When friends see the pictures they often comment "As the mother of the bride you don't look very stressed. You look as if you are having a really good time". I always tell them that is because we worked with True Wedding Events!

Aimee was the wedding planner for my wedding. Her organization during the bridal shoot, rehearsal and the wedding day allowed my mother and me to relax and just live in the moment rather than having to worry about what happens next. Our wedding day went down without a hitch, and I can say a big reason for that was Aimee. I had not even been to many weddings when my wedding day came around. was so helpful to have someone involved in the wedding planning who had experience with many weddings. Imagine trying to pan a party for 100+ people without any professional help! So many things can go wrong! It's a huge production! She thought of so many aspects and details that I definitely would have missed; no wedding magazine or advice books would have taught me. She is a joy to work with and I would highly recommend her to any bride and family to be their wedding planner.

Aimee Hardenbergh was our wedding planner, and because of her knowledge, skill, and creativity, our wedding turned out even better than we could have imagined.

Our wedding was a bit complicated in that we used two indoor spaces and one outdoor space, and we wanted a tropical theme in the Washington, D.C. area. Our reception space was very plain and cavernous, and we were concerned that we wouldn’t be able to make it look intimate and pretty for the reception and stay within our budget.

Aimee was instrumental in finding good vendors, going over all of the various contracts, and coordinating every detail down to the minute -- from decor to the ceremony to the reception activities. Her knowledge of space planning and attention to detail were much needed, and her ability to manage everything going on at once was truly impressive. Aimee listened to what we wanted (which was not always very clear) and made it a reality. She had very clever ideas that made our wedding special and saved us money at the same time.

Aimee’s services were absolutely invaluable to us. We could not have done it by ourselves, and it was a huge relief to know that we didn’t have to worry about all the details because she would take care of them for us. We had total confidence in her at all times, and I highly recommend her to anyone who is planning a wedding or special event.

My daughter and I hired Aimee with a couple months to go until an August wedding. We thought we were hiring someone to just make sure everything went smoothly the last weeks before and the day of the wedding—to sort of be our eyes, ears, and hands where we couldn’t be. What we got was SO MUCH MORE. Aimee was amazing. She read through our contracts and started coordinating the vendors immediately. She made things work that we would not have been able to. She recognized potential problems and resolved them. She made good, timely suggestions and helped us make some last minute changes. She did everything, and only had us involved when we needed to be. Her coordination skills are amazing; a couple very difficult vendors were no match for her. All of this was done with a graciousness and class that were very important to us. The best thing she did for us was that she got us organized with timelines, and decisions made, weeks before the wedding. Her goal was to allow us to really enjoy the week and special day knowing everything was done. We had a final timeline that was the mother of all timelines.

It all came together to make a fabulous wedding day. It was storming, so all the garden festivities had to be moved inside the tent. What could have been a stressful disaster for some was no problem for Aimee. We worried about nothing. By the time we got to the reception everything was moved inside and looked spectacular—just like we had planned it that way. The reception was perfect.

I could not recommend Aimee more highly. What she did for us was worth SO much more than what we paid her. At the end of the night, my husband said, “Wow, Aimee was really a good decision.” Little did he know!! Thank you Aimee!

We used True Wedding Events for the day of planning and Aimee was a delight to work with. I chose to have a day of planner because I didn't want myself or my family running around trying to set up, since our venue was basically a blank canvas and we had to supply all the decorations. The relief that Aimee was able to give my family knowing my wedding day would be perfect was something every bride should have. I was able to show up to the venue and enjoy my husband and I's special day with no worries.

Aimee, our wedding planner with True Wedding Events was really dedicated to our 'vision'. I lack all sense of creativity and imagination, and Aimee was incredible at making us visualize what kind of vibe and atmosphere we wanted to have at our wedding, and was instrumental in adding just the right touches that were key to creating a wedding that so many of our guests commended us on. In the weeks following the wedding, we received ENDLESS compliments on how beautiful our wedding was, how everything flowed so nicely- these compliments really should have gone directly to Aimee because it was because of her that we were able to pull it off.
Although we did a pretty good job of finding our own vendors, Aimee did help us find our caterer and always had suggestions when we needed them. Again I think her main skill is in the details, in reminding you of nice touches or additions. She really has the wholistic view and was able to understand our style, our preferences, and what was important for us, and to bring all of that together to create a fabulous, beautiful, and memorable event for us and for our guests.
if you are considering getting a wedding planner, think of it this way:
- On my wedding day I was able to sleep in, get ready at my own pace, go to the wedding venue (manor) and get my makeup done and drink wine and champagne with my mom and bridesmaids in the bridal suite until I had to walk down the aisle. Not once did I have to think about whether the shuttles were on time, or the bar was set up, etc. None of that, from the beginning to the end of the night. That to me is priceless! It's not even worth it to think about doing it all yourself no matter how DYI you are!!! And Aimee is perfectly organized to make it flow and get things moving without you even noticing what's going on.

A+!
