I don't even know where to begin with praising Mary Jean. We found her originally through a search online, and scheduled a meeting with her about a year before our wedding. We knew right away that she was the right one for us. Her voice, her demeanor, the way she made us both feel comfortable, and was open to any type of ceremony we wanted. We worked with her throughout our 15 month engagement, but really had most of our interaction the last few months. These months, as most brides know is the most stressful time of your wedding planning. It's easy to lose focus and concentrate on things that aren't as important in the overall picture. Mary Jean helped me stay focused and had a few heart to heart conversations with me to remind me once again, what the day was really all about. We worked together for days, and over multiple emails to perfect our ceremony. Up until the last week I was making small changes, and she was totally open to any idea that came up. Our wedding guests could not stop praising our officiant after the ceremony. Even our DJ who has done countless ceremonies said that was one of the best he had ever seen. It's funny how on your wedding day, you really miss a lot. You are floating on clouds, and sometimes spinning from the excitement and nerves. Mary Jean was a constant voice of calm, and someone I could look at during the ceremony to stay focused. My fiance and I shed a few tears, and she was so thoughtful to have tissue ready for us. She lead us through the ceremony like a true professional, but with so much passion, I was really blown away. I was sad that the wedding was over, because we loved working with MJ so much. I know after we have our children, she will be a part of any blessing ceremonies that we plan for them.

Our wedding day was perfect - thanks to Nancy from So Happi Together. We were just married yesterday, so these thoughts are all fresh in my mind. I met Nancy over a year ago and booked her as our Day of Coordinator after one meeting. She was friendly and bubbly. She was professional and composed. Nancy went WAY above and beyond her day of coordinator duties throughout the year of planning. Countless emails, meetings, help with getting my dress fitted, advice, suggestions, opinions, I mean...the list could go on. I am almost sad to write this review, because i'll miss her happy optimistic email responses every few days. Nancy is an A+++++ amazing coordinator, and someone who treats every person in your wedding like they are the most important person to her that day. Even when there were tiny things that went wrong, and were out of her control, she didn't let me know, and handled them to the best of her ability. I wasn't even made aware of these things on the wedding day, and she handled them flawlessly. She was there for my fiance and I from a year before our wedding, to the moment we left the building last night. There were SO many elements involved in our day, I had details packed into every, single minute. So many things to set out, people to keep on schedule...even I was overwhelmed by the amount of work she had to do. I am extremely detailed, but Nancy was on top of everything - answering my questions before I could even ask them. I plan events for a living as well, so I am very particular about things. Nancy respected that, and completely amazed me with her ability to handle me, and all of my crazy wedding day details. Nancy and her assistant Bonnie handled everything FLAWLESSLY, with ease, and with smiles on their faces. It rained the morning of my wedding, and I was in tears. Nancy took a moment out of her busy morning to pull me outside and show me that the sun was shining, and that the day would be ok. Even as I write this now, I am emotional because that moment meant so much to me. The day was perfect, and the rain went away. I seriously can't even imagine the day without Nancy there. I really feel like Nancy became a friend to my fiance and I, and I am honestly going to miss her!! I would 10000% recommend her to any bride that needs a coordinator.
