Just Chic Events
My husband and I got married on May 22, 2010 and were put in contact with Paola through our photographer (the amazing Jordana Hazel)about a year before our ceremony Initially I thought that I could handle all the planning and day of issues with the help of my friends/family etc. What I know now is that it would have been close to impossible and extremely stressful. Paola is truly an angel who puts all of her skills, experience, compassion, talent, and expertise into absolutely every aspect of wedding planning. We went with the day of package available at the time, but the services far exceeded what the typical "Day-Of" services offered by other vendors. On top of that, to say that Paola went above and beyond what was part of our contract would be the understatement of the decade. Paola's integrity and genuine passion for what she does is incredible. She has the ability to understand both the bride and groom and to be able to relate to each person individually without making the other feel she is taking sides. She notices the slightest expression, body language, etc. of each person making it possible for her to understand what they really need, want, and can do even when they don't know it themselves! I don't think this is a quality that can be learned; rather, a gift that Paola so generously shares. Paola is also incredibly sensitive to a client's budget and knows exactly where to encourage a client to prioritize, and where it is reasonable to scale down or eliminate. On the actual big day Paola was there handling everything with her assistant. I felt so relaxed and was able to enjoy and take in every moment of the day without a worry in the world which is quite incredible because I am a true worrier. She was able to relate to all of our guests, bridal party, etc. which made everyone feel special. The fact that she speaks Spanish fluently was a life saver because my husbands family were in town from Argentina. I really truly cannot express my gratitude to Paola enough. My husband and I are looking forward to referring her to anyone we know who is planning a wedding or event. You will get so much more than a service when you hire Paola. You will get a detail oriented perfectionist, who is equally as kind, nurturing, and loving. You will get someone you will also consider a friend. Cannot recommend Paola enough!
