Literally perfect; if you need the internet to convince you how great Alison & Bryan are, then you obviously haven't talked to them yet.

I have never planned an event on the scale of my wedding, which was why it was so important to me that I had professionals with years of experience to ensure everything turned out the way that I wanted. You only get one wedding, so there is no room for trial and error! There is a reason these guys have the reputation they do; they're both geniuses and work with/recommend the most incredible vendors. And despite being brilliant and professional-- 'meetings' with them feel like you're hanging out with friends you've known for years. I am so nuts about trusting people, but these two are seriously the best. If you are even considering hiring Bryan and Alison, do yourselves a favor and work it into the budget. They are hands down the best vendors we hired and I can't recommend them enough.

Viva La Diva is absolutely wonderful! Hiring them to provide consultation services and day-of coordination for my wedding was definitely one of the best decisions I made. I reached out to Alison at a time when I felt completely overwhelmed - I was planning the wedding from out of state, working long hours, and struggling to turn the thoughts and ideas I had for the look of my wedding into reality. As soon as I started working with Alison, I felt the weight lift off my shoulders. Alison helped streamline the wedding planning process, and is truly gifted at what she does - she focuses on all the little details that together create an amazing event. With the help of Viva La Diva, I was able to have the wedding of my dreams!

Alison of Viva La Diva is worth her weight in gold (and if you're looking at wedding bands, you know exactly how expensive gold is right now)! When we first came to her, we knew vaguely what we wanted: a fancy castle feel, but not stuffy. I had no idea how to even start, but Alison connected me with fantastic vendors and kept track of EVERYTHING.

Viva La Diva is perfect for the bride who isn't into weddings. These were the steps for most decisions:
1. Alison asks what I want.
2. I say I don't know, then maybe I give a couple adjectives describing how I want this thing (music, activities, lighting, place settings) to make me and the guests feel. Or I just ask her to go with what feels right.
3. Alison finds a couple options, and I pick between them. SO EASY.

Thoughts about the wedding day: This team is magical! From getting ready in the morning to sleeping like a log that night, I never had to worry about a single thing!! That, and they created a day that was completely representative of me and my husband. Guests approached me and my parents throughout the night, saying it was the best wedding they've ever been to, or as my MOH put it, "Best night of my liiiiiife!"

And this review wouldn't be complete without a shout-out to Bryan's mixology skills! We had a great list of signature cocktails, including non-alcoholic options for kids and lightweights. YUM.

Seriously, if you're apprehensive about planning your wedding because you want the day to be fun, but you aren't sure what you want, or if you can't muster enough enthusiasm for choosing linens and lighting, hire Viva La Diva PRONTO. They will make your life easier.

My husband and I both agree that hiring Viva La Diva Events was one of the absolute best decisions we made while planning our wedding. They're so nice, easy to work with, and they made our wedding incredible. We honestly couldn't have done it without them. They were so knowledgeable throughout the entire planning process. They contacted all our vendors and created a timeline for us making sure everyone knew where they needed to be and when. On your wedding day you don't want to be overwhelmed with problems that arise or have the reception venue staff bothering you for things while you're on the dance floor. The Viva La Diva Event staff took care of everything. Being able to relax and enjoy every minute of our wedding was priceless. We also received countless compliments from guests on how great they were. VLD thank you for making our wedding day one we'll never forget!!!!

We are so thankful to have met and worked with Alison and Brian of Viva La Diva Events. Their professionalism and attention to detail was top notch. They truly wanted the day to be a reflection of us and helped to bring our ideas to life. The day of the wedding, Alison and Brian took the worry off of our shoulders making sure that every detail was perfect and that we could relax and just enjoy. I would 100% recommend Viva La Diva to anyone getting ready to plan their wedding, hands down. We are thankful to have met such genuine people that absolutely love what they do. Because of their guidance in planning our big day, our wedding dreams became a reality and we are forever grateful.

Alison provided consultation services and day-of coordination for my wedding. I had a lot of ideas, and she helped me to streamline and come up with a more clear vision for the wedding day. The day of the wedding, I could not have been more happy to do hair/makeup/pictures/GET MARRIED and not have to worry about a single thing. Alison and the VLD crew set up the whole reception immaculately, and the ceremony and reception went off without a hitch thanks to their detailed timeline. I could not have been more impressed with their services. Alison has great taste and knows the best in the business. Highly recommend!

Working with Viva La Diva was easily the best decision we made for our wedding! Alison got to know us as a couple, helped us dream up our perfect wedding and then worked with amazing vendors to pull together the most spectacular event we have ever seen. We planned our wedding from out of state, with time intensive jobs, and Viva La Diva made it so easy for us - they kept us on schedule and inspired throughout the entire process. Alison has excellent taste, a brilliant creative mind and wonderful relationships with vendors. She and the entire Viva La Diva team are truly incredible and we are so grateful we had the opportunity to work with them. We can't recommend them enough!

Our wedding was a dream and perfectly planned and executed by Alison and her team. She was there to hold my hand every step of the way (which I desperately needed) and her event design left even the venue is disbelief. The staff kept commenting on how they had never seen the ballroom look so magical and our guests have been talking about it ever since! I highly recommend Viva la Diva events if you are looking to plan an event that will be remembered forever!
