Details Within helped me with the entire year that I was planning our wedding. My parents live in Ohio so I didn't have my mom always available and I am also persuing a masters degree so I was a little frazzled! Danielle emailed me whenever I had a question and was always available to me.
She had recommendations for other vendors, like our band that people could not stop talking about! She always made my husband and I feel like we were the only wedding she was planning. She is creative, organized and a very dedicated person. She not only planned a gorgeous wedding that everyone had a a fab time at, she also became a great friend. Thanks again!
I plan events for a living, so I know that no matter how much you plan, things do go wrong at events. I made the decision early-on that I wanted to hire a day-of coordinator. I chose to hire someone to deal with the details of my wedding day so that I could enjoy the day with my new husband, our family and friends and not sweat the details. I met Danielle and knew immediately that I would put my wedding in her capable hands.
She was responsive to every question I had. She was reassuring with a quick call and a quick email to make sure that I was staying calm and to offer assistance along the way. She detailed a timeline for my day and contacted all of my vendors to assure that the day would go as planned.
Danielle understood how much effort I put in to all of the details of my day. She was right there to assure that everything was just as I had planned - or BETTER. At one point, during the morning of my wedding, the flower girl pails went missing (by the venue). Before I even knew about it, she had called the florist and arranged for a plan B - which included having the florist return to her shop and PAINT NEW PAILS!
She was a life-saver in corralling the 27 people in the wedding party, decorating the church - you name it - Danielle was there for me and my new husband. She even took some great pictures - ones that my photographer missed! She was calm, friendly, helpful - everything you need and want in a coordinator. She came up with the idea to move my cake to the center of the dance floor so that everyone could see the cake cutting - and then she, the DJ and his assistant carried the cake table themselves!!
My husband, my dad and everyone in the wedding party still comment that Danielle was the best money we spent on that wedding. I was able to let go of "planner mode" and enjoy the day - and she assured that it all went perfectly.
I would enthusiastically recommend Danielle to anyone planning her wedding or looking for day-of services!
Danielle was there for me during the planning process as well as on the Big Day. She was so helpful in being the middle person between my venue and me. On the day of the wedding she was great, always there if I needed anything, there to help my guests and bridal party as well. If I had to do this all over again I would contact Danielle first!!
Danielle of Details Within made ALL the difference in how much my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our wedding weekend. We hired her for the "Day Of" coordination services, which she did brilliantly, plus she provided us with so much more. When problems arose with the caterer in the final two weeks, she smoothly took over the role of liason with them, allowing us to be relieved of that anxiety. Once she arrived in the afternoon on the day before the wedding, we felt like all of our anxieties were over. She seamlessly ran EVERYTHING, and ours was a complicated event; since we held it on private property belonging to friends, we had to create everything from scratch - two tents, lights, boardwalks, ceremony seating, string quartet, stoves and other equipment for the caterers to cook with from the garage, a band, stage, dance floor, tables, chairs, dishes etc. for the formal seated dinner for 175 people, a hairdresser, make-up artist, portable restrooms, two clergy, buses for the guests, the list could go on. Once we turned over the names and numbers of the vendors to Danielle, she made all the final confirmation calls, and seamlessly managed ALL of them that weekend. While catering problems continued through the event, Danielle didn't let the problems bother us at all; she just took care of them. We consider our wedding to have been absolutely perfect, and a huge part of that is because of Danielle. She took care of a million details, such as lighting and re-lighting candles in lanterns during very windy conditions, helping our lost bus drivers find the event, even finding last-minute babysitters for the kids of a guest whose child care fell through. I would trust her explicitly with any event, large or small. She is organized, efficient, and a real pleasure to work with from start to finish.
Danielle created a perfect day! We decided to throw a surprise wedding with exactly 1-month notice and 5-weeks countdown to a move across country. In order to make it happen, we went on a search for a visionary planner with a great sense of humor! From the first email correspondence through the reception, Danielle was amazing. She was fun, attentive, budget conscious, resourceful and full of unique ideas. She found an ideal location within a matter of days and arranged the hotel, transportation, flowers, food, photos, video, cake and more, all in another two weeks flat. Above all else, she was always a phone call away, ready to explain yet another nuance of wedding stuff to a very confused bride.
Danielle was the first to arrive on the day of the ceremony and the last to depart after the reception. We had a fabulous wedding and, one year later, our family and friends continue to talk about how much fun they had that night. I simply could not have pulled together this last minute surprise without Details Within!!
