Debbie's Perfect Touch
Debbie is a sweetheart who is crafty, detail-oriented, creative, easy to work with and has a lot of great ideas and hookups. Debbie really did put all those finishing touches on my wedding.
Number One, her husband Vince was our officiant and he wrote the most beautiful, personalized wedding ceremony ever written!
I forwarded Debbie a few of my Pinterest ideas (jug for a honeymoon fund, a memory candle for entry way to show our loved ones were in our thoughts, etc.) and she made them appear! They were picture perfect and matched all of the decor perfectly. Debbie handled the table seating and it seemed to go flawlessly - the name cards were super cute too!
If you want a wedding with that special touch to make it memorable and perfect, go with Debbie!
I contacted Debbie after I found her on wedding wire a few months before my wedding. I was having my wedding reception at a venue that needed a lot of work to decorate and I knew I needed a professional. I figured it would take a miracle to make it look nice. Well, then I met Debbie and she works miracles. She transformed my venue from a drab place to something that I would have never imagined. She did a wonderful job and I could never thank her enough for what she did. She was quick to respond when I contacted her. She met me at the venue several times to go over details and just had the best recommendations for what would look nice. My husband and I couldn't ask for more. Debbie is professional, efficient, and does great work. If you're looking for a planner/decorater, she's the one to get for your big day!
If I could give 10's on all of these I would. Where do I begin!
From the first moment that I met Debbie I KNEW that I not only had an amazing, talented, creative wedding planner, but also a friend for life. We clicked. Any idea I had, however specific, she would take and morph into something real and something even better then my wildest dreams. Her company is accurately named - Debbie has a Perfect Touch!
Debbie (and her "crew") handled our 150 + guest list wedding, ceremony, and reception at Heritage Hill Historical Park in Lake Forest on a hot summer day in July 2011.
Debbie made our CAKE (cupcakes are A-mazing!) and our FLOWERS. She also did the DAY-OF COORDINATION. This for me was a biggy - there were so many LITTLE details that I wanted taken care of, and was freaking out about handing off to someone else, being the Type A girl that I am. Debbie had everything set up just Perfectly.
Debbie also oversaw our rehearsal, and the clean up of the events (which was very important as it was a historical park). OH! And her husband, Vince Redmond, MFT, was our officiant.
Talk about phenomenal. I wish I had better words to describe how I feel about what an amazing job Debbie did for us... but I don't. All I can say is this:
I was so happy, and so blessed, by Debbie, and her Perfect Touch, that I now see her as a personal hero, and friend. Both in my professional life and in my personal life, I aspire to be like her - an independent, hard working wife, mother, and friend that is a blessing to others.
Thank you Debbie! And bravo!
We saw Debbie at a wedding and liked how she floated around the room invisibly, while doing her job. She was hired the month before the wedding date. Everything was pretty much organized. We had decided to make the centerpieces ourselves using Costco roses. Debbie made a sample centerpiece and quote that was very reasonable. She did all the flowers including bouquets using Roses and Gerber Daises in fall colors. As the planner, she verified with all the vendors their arrival times and plans. As Mother of the Bride, I had a page long list of things to do the day of the wedding. Debbie and her crew took the list and did it all. It was a beautiful wedding and I was able to enjoy every minute of it. I wish I had hired her months before. There is nothing negative to say. The wedding went off without any problems.
Vendor response to review
Thanks so much, Trish. It was a true pleasure working with you and both families!
Debbie is absolutely amazing! She pulled together my dream wedding at the Millennium Biltmore Los Angeles. Debbie is calm, organized, efficient, and creative. Three days before our wedding we found out that we needed a fire permit and without hesitation Debbie figured it all out, not ifs or buts, she put it all together. She's amazing.
Debbie had everything is its place like we had asked and it looked beautiful.
Everything went smoothly on the timeline and at the end of the night she had packed and gathered all our belonging so they were ready to go. She
has a delightful personalty and is easy to work with.
The wedding was a hit !!
Debbie was such a valuable part of our wedding team! She took care of so many things for us...above and beyond what she originally signed on for.....and all with a personal, friendly, and caring touch! I rested easy knowing Debbie was on the job! My husband and I have made a friend for life, and I would highly recommend Debbie to everyone for help with planning, flowers, and so much more! You name it and she can do it!
Debbie's Perfect Touch provided Coordination with Vendors for a month prior to the wedding, the wedding rehearsal, and all day long on the day of the Wedding. The centerpieces were beautiful as she was able to find the exact flowers and shades that we had requested. She worked well with all the vendors and did a fantastic job of making sure that the event went as we had wished it (even catching the mistake of the venue setting up for a Bridal Party table when we had requested a Sweetheart Table - great job Debbie!). Debbie's Perfect Touch was recommended to me, and my daughter and I are very satisfied customers.
Debbie is very organized! She helped me with a Fraternity reunion on super short notice, and it turned out great! She came up with creative ideas, worked with my tiny budget and was super on the ball with all her arrangements and communication with me. I love working with Debbie, she's a gem!
I loved her! If I wasn't already married I'd marry her... She always called me back, she worked with my budget and when I needed her to do decorations at the last minute she was there; with a smile on her face. I wish I had found her at the beginning to help plan my wedding. I would suggest her to anyone......
Pleasure to work with. Went the extra mile to ensure our wedding event and related festivites went smoothly and turned out perfectly. We received lots of compliments on how beautiful and enjoyable the event was. We highly recommend Debbie's Perfect Touch.
I had a great time planning my wedding with Debbie. She made everything so easy and she never let me stress out about anything, it was wonderful! I highly recommend using her services. She made helped make my dream wedding come true!
We loved working with Debbie. We felt she was really on our side, and gave us really good advice. She was very organized, and always answered our questions quickly. She went above and beyond our expectations to put us at ease on our wedding day, and made sure everything was taken care of. We have recommended Debbie to all our friends who are getting married.
Debbie helped make my wedding day a perfect one! If I didnt have her around for the day of my wedding, it would not have gone as smoothly as it did. She went above and beyond to help make this day special even up till midnight when the wedding reception was ending she was there running little errands for me. I have recommended her to two of my friends and both of them used her or are currently using her for their wedding. Thank you Debbie for everything!
