Patty was our day-of-coordinator for our April 3, 2010 wedding and we were lucky to have been able to work with her. After our first meeting, she emailed us detailed planning checklists. She also met with us at the venue's open house for a second meeting and to see the venue. She is extremely organized and detail-oriented, and we really couldn't have asked for more. She was always available and quick to answer emails, and gave us many great recommendations for vendors that she had worked with before. It was great that so many of our vendors had worked together before because it made coordinating among them so easy and effortless. In the month before the wedding, she was extremely helpful in helping to plan our timeline and coordinate with our vendors to iron out final details. She was extremely responsive to emails and changes to the timeline. The day before our weeding, she ran the rehearsal in a very professional manner, and also worked out some last minute changes (we ended up moving our ceremony from outdoors to indoors because of cold weather). Even with all of the changes, it was not stressful at all because of her help and organization. On the day of, I really didn't have to worry about anything at all, so I know that she took care of a ton of details and questions behind-the-scenes. We had such a great time at the wedding and we were able to enjoy the party - from start to finish. Thanks Patty!

Giao and her assistants are amazing!! Before our wedding, we met with her and her husband Thai to do our engagement session, and we absolutely loved how our pictures turned out. They are one talented couple!

On our wedding day, her and her assistants arrived early and were extremely professional and kind. They brought a ton of makeup and other supplies! I had asked them to do the makeup and hair of all of my bridesmaids, and my mom, an aunt and grandmothers, and they did a beautiful job on everyone. I thought it might be a little chaotic, but they were so calm and sweet and it was actually really just a fun and casual morning. We finished right on schedule, and everyone looked so beautiful! Giao even stayed all day to touch-up my makeup and fix my hair throughout the night. Her and Thai are such a lovely couple, and it was great to spend the day with them!

Giao also made a beautiful headpiece for me, and I got so many compliments on it throughout the evening. She is truly talented and so creative and I couldn't have asked for more. Thanks Giao!
