A Heart to Heart Wedding Consultant
LOVE BRENDA AND HER CREW! I'm not even sure where to begin. From the very beginning Brenda came in with her calming, nurturing presence and put us all at ease. She listened to all of my concerns and vision for the day. I had a very specific "look" I was going for, and she embraced it completely! She communicated my needs with our vendors, checked in with my often to make sure we were doing well, and always asked questions to make sure we were on the same page. On the day of she was THERE...whenever I needed her, there she was! Whether it was water, lipgloss, or antihistamine when a bug flew up my dress and bit me! Who has that on hand? She does! She made sure we ate, visited with guests, and had a great time. All of my bridesmaids and family felt instantly comfortable with her as well. She's highly organized (we're kindred spirits in that way), detailed oriented (key), and quick to laugh and smile! Her assistants Andy & Julie were oh-so professional and a pleasure to be around as well. We can't say enough about how wonderful she made the process!

Thank you so much for the outstanding review. Your wedding was the hi-light of our year. You, your family and your guests were a real blessing to us. Congratulations...
Brenda from A Heart to Heart was fantastic. She took care of all my "day of" planning from contacting vendors, making time-lines, running the rehearsal, and setting up. She was there throughout my planning as well with helpful tip and words of encouragement. She is so sweet, professional, and genuine. We really loved working with her and she made our special day run smoothly. We also thank her for all she's done and give her our highest recommendation!

Brenda was a pleasure to work with. In my experience with coordinaters/planners I have witnessed much. It takes a very detail oriented, organized and creative person to succeed. I, as a Chef look forward to working with Brenda again.
I've known Brenda for years. She is very organized, thorough, friendly and very professional. I highly recommend her services. Joe LaBarbera, LaBarbera Sound. www.joelabarbera.com
I have worked with Brenda and staff over twelve years at many different wedding and reception sites. She is always caring, attentive to details and on top of things. She makes sure that the wedding day is planned and prepared, yet fun. She takes the worries out of the wedding. It is always an honor to work with her and her staff. I can recommend A Heart to Heart Consultant with my whole heart.
Brenda is a true pleasure to work with. Every detail is taken care of and every event is very well organized, and she does it always with a beautiful smile! You can see she really cares about her clients and enjoys her work.
Brenda is always a pleasure to work with. There are 2 types of coordinators that I work with; those that produce an incredible wedding, and those that work well with all their wedding vendors. She is both. She gets the job done seemingly effortlessly with a smile while working with and helping her wedding vendor's talents shine. She is an asset to any wedding that we do together. -Beau Kramer, Kramer Entertainment Inc, http://www.kramerdjs.com

I believe in being strong when everything is going wrong, I’m native to California but willing to be where I need to be to make dreams come true! Life is Fabulous, or shall I say Fabulicious? Celebrate accordingly!
…so for today, that’s it and just the tip of my iceberg.

How much wedding experience do you have?
There is more to this question than asking “how many weddings have you done?” Many people will claim they have event planning experience, however planning a corporate event or party is very different from planning a wedding. Anyone who tells you that since planning their own wedding they decided to start the business is probably not a good sign. Although planning their own wedding was fun planning someone else’s is not an easy task.
It is also good to ask about their education and if they belong to any associations relevant to their profession as a wedding coordinator or planner.
How do your services work?
Depending on what service you choose ask the coordinator to review the entire process including the “day of” to make sure you are clear of what she is doing for you. There are a lot of misconceptions out there about what a wedding coordinator does and doesn’t do, so ask questions if you are not sure. This is what the consultation is for.
How do you charge your fees?
Wedding coordinators or planners may charge by the hour, a flat rate, percentage of the wedding budget or by doing an estimate of their time.
Do you receive referral fees from vendors?
Many years ago this may have been okay however times have changed and accepting referral fees (also known as “kick backs”) is now deemed unethical. Since the bride and groom are your client payment should come from your client only.
What other services do you offer?
Some coordinators may offer other wedding services that may seem like you are getting a better deal or killing two birds with one stone, but keep in mind that this is not necessarily true. It is best to leave details such as floral, décor, etc., to the professionals who specialize in this field. You coordinator already has much to do with making sure all of these vendors and your other details are kept organized and completed in a timely manner.
What is your emergency procedure?
Having a back up coordinator is important, but also make sure that this back up possess the same skill level as your actual coordinator. You don’t want an assistant coordinating your day for the fee of a professional coordinator.
How many weddings do you coordinate per day or weekend?
There are many details to remember and coordination for just one wedding alone is best. Go with someone who will devote their time and attention to your day and your day only.
