In September 2008, I posted an ad soliciting day of wedding coordinators for my October wedding in New York City. I received over 30 responses ranging from people looking to make extra cash to planners just dabbing in the industry to coordinators with years and years of experience. The variance posed a challenge because even though I knew I wanted to best for my special day, I knew that meant it would carry a hefty price tag. Then I received an email from Karina Jimenez, the lead consultant. It was a short note expressing her interest and providing her website and contact information. From that email, I knew this was a company I wanted to work with to make my wedding had phenomenal. During our first conversation, I appreciated her supportive attitude. Even though it was about a month before the wedding, I still hadnt chosen a centerpiece design, a florist and a couple other vendors. Less than an hour after our conversation she emailed me vendor suggestions and tons of centerpiece designs that matched my wedding colors and theme. All in all, Karina is the ideal planner. As a bride I was overwhelmed, over extended and budget conscious but Karina was great at alleviating most of that stress. She responded to my emails and phone calls almost immediately, which I appreciated more than she could imagine. In terms of flexibility, shes an A+ by far. Since I was an out of town bride, she didnt mind our first face-to-face being until the day before the wedding day and coming to my parents home to pick up favors and reception venue supplies late Friday evening. I admire her warm, reassuring and calm personality. I would definitely recommend her to any couple seeking a wedding coordinator.
