I can't rave enough about Paola!! Hiring her as DOC was hands down the BEST decision DH and I made during our wedding planning. I was a pretty detail-oriented, hands-on bride, but I knew that I didn't want to stress about anything on the big day. Our venue had the option of using one of their coordinators, which we originally went with, but after our venue coordinator left (and nobody told us!) I decided to bring in an outside coordinator who would have our best interests at heart. I actually booked her without meeting her beforehand, due to the massive rave reviews from another PW bride (MrsGG) whose wedding was absolutely stunning! When I finally met her in person, she was just as warm and welcoming as she was in her emails. From the moment I booked her, Paola was infinitely helpful in answering all of my questions and making an extensive timeline to make sure I was on track in my planning. She also responds to all correspondence super-quick, which is rare in wedding vendors. Although we only booked her for day-of coordination, she did so much more than that! I found my remaining vendors through her references (cake, makeup, alterations) and ALL of the vendors were fantastic. Also thanks to her, I never stressed out about anything during our wedding planning, and even during the last few days right up until our wedding, I was completely relaxed (and how often can you really say that?!) Another thing I found incredibly comforting is her attitude - no matter what happens, she is calm and composed, which is a WONDERFUL quality in a wedding coordinator. On the day of, she and her assistant were everywhere at once - I never had to worry about a thing! She has an amazing attention to detail, so absolutely nothing escaped her notice. Our day was absolutely perfect, seamless, and stress-free.. it was like a dream come true. If you're on the fence about hiring a DOC, trust me - it will be the best money spent! :D :D

Yay! My experience at Ann Taylor was AWESOME! Vesna (at the Westside Pavilion location) spent nearly an hour tracking down all the sizes I needed for my bridesmaids. She called five different Ann Taylors, having them do stock checks and having them put them on hold for me. She also placed an order from another store which wasn't local and had a dress shipped directly to me for no extra charge. I also opened an Ann Taylor card that day, which gave me 10% off all day, so I was able to get a discount on everything! I can't recommend them enough, both for the quality of their dresses and the great customer service they offer. I ended up visiting four different Ann Taylors to collect the dresses, and every single employee I interacted with was extremely helpful and professional.
