Our wedding planner from The D-Tales, Bonny Bailey, was so wonderful and helpful. We were able to put our trust in her to fulfill our dreams for a wonderful occasion. Since we live out of town we knew we needed help with vendors and details. She was knowledgeable on vendors in the area and has worked with many on other events. With Bonny there was nothing that couldn't be achieved. She's a great listener and payed complete attention to everything we wanted to include in our event, and then some. There were things we hadn't thought about and she just made it happen. Like how she included our daughters and made them feel special. We highly recommend Bonny to others for their events.
Okay, so we did not use a planner at all because expenses were getting up there. My friend who is a decorator helped me get things started. (which I am eternally grateful) But let me tell you about April Dorsey from The D-Tales. Amazing! So easy to work with, professional and flexible. She has a lot of great ideas and a beautiful attitude. She seemed excited to work on the wedding and I would have been more than happy to work with her. You definitely get what you pay for with her. She is not expensive by any means. My total budget was a max of $6,000. Sadly, that did not leave room for this lovely lady. I can't wait to show her pictures of what we were able to accomplish. It was amazing and breathtaking and could have only been overwhelmingly had she the opportunity to help out. Best of luck April. It was wonderful meeting you.
April did a fabulous job with coordinator our day-of-events. She was extremely on point with every detail. Things absolutely ran smoothly because of her punctuality and ability to control the utter chaos that goes along with a wedding. April also took the time to meet with myself and my husband face-to-face before the big day so that we could make sure she knew all the necessary details. If you are looking for someone who will be able to take care of your event planning so that you can actually enjoy the event yourself, definitely go with the D-Tales!
I have to say that working with April was a pleasure! The wedding coordinator at the Hilton of Daytona and April both made our wedding possible because we received some very unexpected news- a baby!! My husband and I are thrilled, but this pushed our wedding up by 4.5 months or so and April and her team made it possible!! She was always available when I needed her and I had her do everything for me!! She had most of the stress on her shoulders and I really wasn't stressed at all. So thank you to her and the D-tales for being so amazing during such an exciting time in our lives!!! We couldn't have done it without you all!

April was the only vender for our wedding that we can honestly say we were sorry we used. She was awful! everything from beginning to end about her was completely scattered. She did not listen to anything we said. Everyone complained about her even the groomsmen. During the rehearsal she insisted that the groomsmen stand on the left (if you are facing the alter) and the bridesmaids on the right. We argued about this..... even the photographer told her that she was wrong. She never handed out the wedding coloring books for the little children at the wedding like she was supposed to. Everything she did was half way.... there was no professionalism at all. I would save my money and never use this person.
Bonny was an excellent wedding coordinator! Bonny and her team at D-Tales handled every situation with grace, enthusiam and great professionalism. She kept me calm in the most stressful of situations. You cannot have a wedding without amazing help, and Bonny was just what I needed. I recommend her services for any event.
I just had to post about my fabulous wedding planner, April with the D-Tales. She is absolutely amazing and soooo talented! You tell her exactly what you want for an event and she takes that and just goes above and beyond. April has literally made every one of my dreams come true with the type of wedding she creates. She has given me memories to last a lifetime and I am forever grateful that she was a part of my magical day! Having her plan an event for you is like giving yourself the ultimate gift. To say I love her and trust her completely isn’t enough!
April put us in touch with quality professionals at fair fees, they were all very professional and did a wonderful job.
April was there for all the aspects of planning this wedding and actively involved herself with suggestions and listened to the desires of the bride.
We heartily recommend this...
Vendor response to review
Paula, I thank you for the phone call to let me know your review appeared with the ratings below what you entered in the review. I thank you for allowing us to be involved in the rehearsal dinner planning on Nov 9th. We don't make normal practices of offering these services for free but we enjoyed creating a special day for Mellisa and Jared's rehearsal dinner. It was a gorgeous evening and cant wait to see the photos.
April provided exactly what I needed in a wedding planner! I needed someone to "drive the ship" and she surely helped to keep me on track! April suggested reliable and affordable vendors and was always there to keep me on track and calm! I would recommend her services to anyone! :)
Bonny Bailey was my coordinator for my wedding. I liked planning my wedding and even with all the planning I did I was not able to execute my ideas. That is where Bonny came into place. I had some trouble with the previous owner of my venue and Bonny assured me everything would be okay. She even had a backup plan just in case! Bonny was always there for me whenever I needed it. She came to whatever meetings I asked her to attend. She knew all the other vendors that were at my wedding which was very helpful for communication weeks before the wedding. Bonny would do anything I would ask and always with a smile on her face. She even went above all my requests – like making a rehearsal and a day of timeline for my bridal party and vendors. When it came to the day of my wedding Bonny was on top of everything. She was there before I arrived and had everything set up for me. I did not stress once at my wedding and that is 100% because of Bonny. I stress very easily and I felt comfortable knowing Bonny will handle anything that comes her way. The wedding was flawless! I know most people tell Brides to enjoy every moment because it flies by and as much as I agree with that statement there is one more suggestion I would tell all Brides….Hire a coordinator, and hire Bonny at that! Your wedding day only comes once and all the planning leads up to that moment and having someone like Bonny to execute your plan flawlessly is ideal. You want to be a beautiful bride, not a bridezilla. Bonny is a caring, understanding coordinator who will accomplish everything with such an ease. I highly recommending using The D-Tales for your next event!
Bonny is truly amazing! I was the Maid of Honor in my friend's wedding this past November and had lots of interaction with Bonny during the planning/execution process. Bonny made the bride and myself feel relaxed, organized, and excited! She has the experience and knowledge to turn your idea of a wedding into so much more. I cannot wait to use Bonny in my own wedding down the road. I highly recommend hiring her as your wedding coordinator. She genuinly cared about making my friend's wedding unforgettable. Another thing that I like about Bonny is that she is a great listener. She listened to the bride's ideas and enhanced them and really made them come to life. She is professional and very organized. Bonny thinks of things that had never crossed our minds prior to talking to her. Bonny is great at what she does and I can't thank her enough for making the best day of my friend's life such a success! ! !
I worked with them for my wedding, and it was a FANTASTIC experience! We had to switch vendors in the middle of the process, and D-Tales made the transition very smooth with no difficulties or challenges - even working with the other vendor behind the scenes to make it seamless for me. They definitely stepped up to the plate and made my wedding perfect, with every detail (and more) that I hoped for! In particular, Bonny was outstanding especially the day of. I appreciated all they did and would not hesitate to use them again or recommend for others.
April from the D-Tales was truly AMAZING! We hired April for our Day of Reception but she attended my Henna Party and also my Hindu Ceremony. I truly mean it when I say that I could not have pulled the entire wedding off so flawlessly without her. The timeline she put together for me was perfect, and it made the wedding flow effortlessly. I cannot even begin to tell you how many comments I received from guests that said it was one of the most spectacular weddings they had ever been to. You handled everything and everyone with such professionalism... Thank you so much for all of your suggestions and advice. You were right on with it all… From the vendors to the dos and don’ts. You were always there for us when we needed you.
Melissa & Dave
Words cannot describe how awesome April is. She was the key to making our wedding day a day to remember!!!! Not only did she provide comfort and guidance throughout the process, we even had a few laughs along the way. April's knowledge and experience gave me confidence selecting venues and vendors! All I can say is we coudn't have done it without her. Thank you to April and the D-tales, you are my #1 recommendation!!
I am an AV Director for Swank Audio Visuals a worldwide AV provider for hotels all across the globe. I work on many different social events such as weddings, bar & bat mitzvahs, reunions, anniversary’s, and sweet 16's. However, weddings are my specialty. I have had the pleasure of working with The D-Tales on a number of weddings/receptions. We even collaborated on a Star Trek Klingon Wedding! It was stunning to say the least. The majority of my experiences have been with Bonny Bailey. I have worked with Bonny for over a year and we have done dozens of weddings together. Bonny is a true joy to work with and is an utmost professional. Her primary concern is that the Bride and Groom (yes, she even cares about what the groom wants.) get the look, feel, and overall dream of a wedding that they were hoping for. Bonny puts so much of herself into what she does, that every single wedding is personal to her and treated as if it were her very own. I guarantee if you are looking for a quality wedding planner who really cares about your special day, you will not find a better one in the central FL area! Congratulations to all the engaged couples out there who are reading this. May you have the wedding of your dreams and the marriage of your lifetime. -Mark Wagner (Swank Audio Visuals)
I never give perfect scores on everything but I just couldn't help it with April at The D-Tales. I hired her for the Day Of service, but she has been a part of my plans since the beginning. She answered any questions and suggested vendors to me when I was stumped. I had a very unusual wedding with a Klingon Theme that involved costuming, prosthetics and a makeup crew. On the day of, April took charge of an unwieldy group of costumers and actors and marshalled us into a good semblance of an excellent production. She kept me sane and fed and overall enjioyed being a part of the process and a friend. I highly recommend The D-Tales for any wedding planning!
Wedding planning philosophy: If your wedding planner is as excited about your wedding as you are -- you are in luck!
This is exactly the energy that April brings to wedding planning.
My husband and I had a somewhat unique situation given that he lives in Victoria, B.C., Canada and I live in Seattle and the wedding was in Cocoa Beach, FL. I initially contacted April about our pending simple (25 people, low-key) beach wedding.
Here is part of her reply:
"I think your needs are quaint and I feel that my planning and prices would be way more that i would ever suggest to a bride. I am more than happy to give you wonderful suggestions and ideas but i am going to refer you to a better option...."
"Like I said, I dont think you need my services for what you are looking for (who on earth turns away business??? I do!!!!!! But only because I want your day to be exactly what you want it to be!!!!)
NOW, i will say that i am available to assist you any way possible. Just email me."
OK....that speaks volumes.
So, I took her advice and found someone who could both help plan and perform the wedding ceremony. After about two weeks of working with another Orlando-based wedding planner I started gettting this feeling -- this feeling that something just wasn't right. It's not that the planner did anything wrong, rahter, my intuiting was speaking volumes to me. What to do?
I called April.
She said, "Girl, listen to that inside voice, it's never wrong."
And so, I fired my wedding planner.
April then stepped in and offered her services for our wedding that was to be far from the stunning and elaborate weddings she has created and perfected for other clients. As simple as our wedding was, it was stunning. It was elaborate. It was simple.
She arranged the most gorgeous bouquet for myself and maid of honor and a cake which complemented the flowers along with arranging for catering, paper goods, orange juice, plenty of chamagne and transportation from Cocoa Beach back to the EO Inn and Spa in Orlando.
I can't say enough. I met up with her the evening before for delivery of all the wedding goodies and accents. I wish I had had more time to spend with her.
Our wedding was PERFECT. I mean PERFECT. Because my husband and I live so far away from Florida I was worried and didn't want to be the frantic bride trying to get everything together and thus neglecting time with our families Even when I did feel a bit frantic, April reminded me to breathe. And so I would stop and breathe. And then I'd feel better.
April really stepped out of the bounds of her norm to help with our wedding plans. I could carry on with accolades for Ms April but I think you get it. Oh, one last thing. She is SO personable and genuine. She felt like a sister or best friend who simply wanted everything to be perfect for me. And it was.
And so, without reservation, I highly suggest April Dorsey and her D-Tales team.
Thank you for contributing to a perfectly perfect wedding.
Yvonne and Tim...
Bonny was such a stress reliver through out the whole process. You think that you can handle it and I tell you what I thought I had everything done. Met with Bonny a few weeks before and she truely made sure that everything was covered even things I never thought of. She is such a wealth of knowledge and so organized that I who am known to be a control freak was able to let go and just have fun my whole wedding day. Thank you soooooooo much Bonny
My siblings and I hosted a vow renewal ceremony for my parents in Orlando, Florida. And Bonny of The D-Tales was our event planner. She was amazing. She had everything under control and was wonderful at the ceremony. You really don't know how much you need an event planner until you hire one. Bonny was an invaluable resource for us during the finishing process. The ceremony was perfect. And all our family and friends were very impressed with how smoothly everything went. All in all hiring The D-Tales was the single best choice we made in planning our parents vow renewal ceremony. And we appreciate Bonny and her team's hard work, professionalism, attention to detail, and enthusiasm.
I learned about the D-tales at a bridal show. I walked by and just asked them a question concerning my colors and what type of venue would work for me. I gave them my two colors and was given a venue that was to the T of what I wanted, later on that week I went to the Rix lounge at Disney and booked my red and black initmate wedding. My wedding planner (Bonnie) was awesome. I was the bride who hated talking on the phone, plus I was taking law classes and being a full time mom, it just wasn't possible. But Bonnie stayed right there with me. I swear we both were night owls because I could be finishing up my homework at 1Am and email her and 5 min later she would be replying. I even had a break down at the try on for the guys tux and I texted her and she replied without hesitation. The day of my wedding was flawless, she had things ready and stuff that I couldn't even think of like red ribbons on my huge favor boxes tied with a bow. She knew all the line dance songs to request for the DJ and made sure I Ate lol. Her one thing was that I was to leave the stressing up to her and I did just that, if I needed her I would look up and she was right there. That Night she was there for me and it felt like it. I texted her the day after the wedding because no one was sending me pics of the tables and the way the reception looked and I couldn't wait till the actual photos came in and again at 1am she replied with some pics. She is outstanding and I highly recommend her and the D-tales.
Words can not express our gratitude and appreciation towards April and her amazing team. Our wedding was perfect and we owe that to April. I knew from our initial meeting that she was exactly what we needed in a day of coordinator. Not only was she fantastic on the day of but she was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. I must have sent her hundreds of emails over the year of planning and she was always very quick to respond. She knew exactly what she was talking about with everything! She saw our vision and helped make it come true! April helped make me feel completely comfortable and confident in her abilities that everything would go smoothly the day of the wedding. I was surprisingly calm and not stressed the day of the wedding because I knew she would be an incredible job. She even helped put us in contact with several different vendors who were exactly what we were looking for. We will never forget our experience working with April and the rest of the team. Thank you for all that you did! We can not thank you enough!
Very helpful with helping us find a location and vendors within our budget. Our beach wedding got rained out and they made sure everything ran smoothly as we switched to our plan B.
Bonny Bailey is truly amazing. If it was not for her and her level of professionalism my event would not have happened....period. So many things completely out of our control went wrong the day of the event (which is to be expected) and she held it together like glue. She made sure everything was running as smoothly as possible and made sure every detail was handled and taken care of. I am a wedding professional myself and I would reccomend her to every client I have myself. She loves what she does and you can see it on her face. If there were 10 stars she would deserve that.
April & Her Team are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
The D-Tales went above and beyond from what I expected from them. From our Initial Consultation April did an amazing job of getting to know me as her client, understanding the needs and developing something new and unique as I am not your average Bride. If it wasn't for her and her team, I know our special day would've been a disaster. April is a great person to work with, organized, high energy, caring, sweet, positive and VERY RELIABLE! My Groom & I couldn't be happier with all she has done for us and the result of the wedding day. Thank you TONS April!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!!! :)
Bonny was the best thing to happen to my wedding! Before we hired her our wedding seemed to be slipping away in all the little details, but by the end of our first meeting with her there was a calm that washed over the entire process. All of the questions about, 'How will this get there?' or 'Who's going to make sure it goes like this?' were no longer questions because we knew that we could rely on Bonny.
I honestly have no idea how my day would have gone without Bonny working in the background, coordinating vendors and making sure that we could just enjoy our wedding rather than worry about who's doing what and where they should be. Hands down best decision we made in our vendor selection process.
Bonny Bailey was a total joy to work with!!! She made this day everything my daughter had ever dreamed of and more! We gave her a budget and she kept all of our costs right where we wanted them, and when we threw a new idea at her she made it happen. I never imagined that there could be no stress planning and putting together this day for our daughter. We were able to smile and enjoy every moment.
As I stated on facebook, a mere "post" really can't express how much we appreciate your help. But in a nutshell, my new HUSBAND, Tony Vumbaca and I agree that YOU ROCK!! :-)
We hired April to rescue us from a crazy planning experience and take care of our Day-Of Coordination. April was so awesome, and truly went out of her way to help out with last few vendor meetings that I had, and helped me to find some of the special personalized things that I needed to make our day special and unique. She was super organized and helped me think of a lot of things that I might have overlooked. And on the day of, her and Bonnie seriously just kept us so cool. I can't thank you enough for coming to our rescue, and I will certainly pass you on to any of my bride-to-be friends! Thank you thank you Thank YOU!
April and her team are AMAZING! As a fellow wedding vendor, I thought I had a good handle on what to expect. April and her girls surpassed my expectations by far. She is like a horse whisperer or something, I swear! On my wedding day, I am willing to bet she was working my day before I was awake and LONG after I was asleep. She may look like Barbie, but she ain't scared to break a sweat. Not one of my family members or I had to worry about a thing. Another unexpected benefit of April - she calmed my nerves when no one else could. She is so worth every penny. I recommend her HIGHLY to everyone.
April and The D-tails team are truly amazing!!!!! I married the love of my life on March 19, 2011 and because of her our wedding was the perfect dream come true. My husband and I are lucky to have found her because without her we would have been lost in this exhausting process of planning and pulling off a wedding. And if you are lucky enough to book her you will understand why. She is always there when you need her and often times before you need her. She takes the visions in your head and turns them into reality. She worked with our crazy schedules and crazy families and managed to keep everyone sane and happy. My guests all loved her and she made it so my husband and I could relax and enjoy our special day. April is a priceless asset in having your dream wedding come true. She will forever hold a special place in my heart.
April truly went above and beyond even our wildest dreams. Our wedding day would have been incomplete without her. The attention she pays to the little details sent my wedding from AMAZING to SPECTACULAR!!!! Our day went so smoothly that my husband and I didn't have to think about anything except having a good time and sharing our love. She is what made our day perfect. If your thinking about getting married and you don't want all the stress she should be the first thing you book.
Face it girls, you don't have time for everything. And unless you have been 'the bridesmaid' a few dozen times, there are details you are going to forget. That is why you need Bonny. Prompt, pleasant and Practically Perfect in everyway, she will help guide you thru to the perfect wedding for 5 or 500. I thought I could whip this wedding out of my bag of tricks and it would be awesome. Oh, I was so overwhelmed. This isnt the place to cheap out- there is real time photo video evidence that you forgot something- on you tube before even the cake has been cut. (cake? where is the cake?)
Do yourself, and your mom a favor. Get Bonny to help. she'll make it right, she'll make you feel good, she'll let you be the star of your show, and your show won't appear on the Wedinator.
Working with Bonny and her team was such a pleasure. She was the epitome of professionalism, yet felt like one of the family! It was such a relief knowing that the event was in such capable and competent hands. Thank you for a successful evening!
April is the best! My wedding had too many details for me to deal with on the big day. I couldn't even figure out my vision. She was amazing at helping me envision and pull it all together! Even if you have the smallest budget, she is worth it! :)
The D-Tales is an ...understatement!
Whether your dreams of "The Perfect Wedding Day" is a traditional classic wedding ...a fantasy fairy tale, or a dramatic everyone involved action packed wedding Bonny with The D-Tales will make all your dreams and memories come true!
It's "your" wedding ...don't leave what should be your most memorable day to amateurs.
Bonny is personal and professional.... Just the right mix of both!
April was a pleasure to work with she is extremely organized and and knows what she is doing. She interacts well with other vendors and goes way above and beyond what I had expected. She kept us on budget and even helped get us a discount or two. I was hesitant to hire a wedding planner I wanted to save that money and thought I could do it all for my daughter however, it was money well spent everything went smooth and I was able to relax and enjoy myself.
April was very helpful when it came to everything. She knew what she was doing and it left us with ease during the planning process. Thank you!
April bent over backward to ensure that our wedding went off without a hitch. She is the ultimate professional. She listened to our ideas, and she then created an amazing wedding around those ideas.
In speaking with her for the first time, we instantly realized that SHE was exactly who we had been looking for; her knowledge and expertise instilled confidence in us that we had made the right decision to hire her.
From the early planning stages to the actual wedding, she was with us every step of the way. She resolved whatever issues presented themselves, taking the worry off of our shoulders.
If you are planning a wedding, do yourself a favor -- hire this brilliant, classy woman. It'll be one of the best investments you will ever make!
We were hesitant to hire a wedding coordinator because our daughter had done such a wonderful job planning and organizing. However, as the wedding drew near we found there were minor details that would be distracting and might take away from our ability to enjoy the big day. The small amount of money we spent for wedding coordination saved our day. As it turned out, there were late deliveries and some other minor details that didn't go quite as planned, but we never knew until after the event. The wedding and reception were absolutely perfect. We spent the entire weekend relaxing and relishing the moment. I wish I could count how many times my husband, my daughter or I have said...."Hiring April (The D-Tales) was the best decision we have ever made and the smartest money we ever spent". We can't say thank you enough or express how perfect she made our once in a lifetime weekend.
The Roden Family
I've worked with Bonny on multiple events and her professionalism and attention to detail surpass many others I've worked with. She accepts change and adapts well to last minute requests and remains flexible thoughout the process. I look forward to the next event I have the chance to work with her again.
Working with Bonny was great! As a 30+ year old bride short with time and options, she provided the best alternatives to a low budget wedding that was nothing less than perfect. She "put up" with my anxieties and delivered as promised.
I have had 3 weddings for my kids and the one that April of The D-Tales did was the most STRESS FREE and enjoyable one. We didnt have to worry about a thing!
From the minute we met, she listened to our ideas and helped us create the day that Ashley dreamed of. We had a timeline and stellar communication throughout the whole process. On the wedding day, we just pampered ourselves and enjoyed the day.
We highly recommend The D-Tales and working with April.
Vendor response to review
I thank you for letting The D-Tales be a part of this magical evening. It was a pleasure making this Fairytale come to life.
A lifetime of happiness to the Bride and Groom!
Working with Bonny during my wedding planning was pure joy! She was professional, friendly and really made my wedding plans go off with ease. She kept up constant communication with not just me but with members of my family and the staff at the resort. She made my wedding “vision” so much more with her fabulous ideas and suggestions. She was present at my rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception and was very hands on to ensure perfection. My Wedding was gorgeous and incident free and I have Ms. Bonny Bailey to thank for that!
What an amazing wedding! We are all so thrilled with the fairytale you pulled off. We could have never enjoyed this wedding without you.
April, the choice of vendors was "spot on" and you saved us so much work!
From the fresh flowers to the party all night, as the mother of the bride, I cant tell you how much I loved having you there! In fact, without all the stress, I too felt like a princess.
Thank you for all you did and when Aaron is ready, The D-Tales will be his first gift!
Thank you again for your professionalism and the fun you bring!
I wanted to share my amazing experience with Bonny Bailey. I have had the pleasure of working with her for over the past year in planning my wedding in March 2011. Bonny has so many great qualities and she truly belongs in the wedding and event planning field! Some of the amazing character traits about Bonny she is extremely knowledgeable, professional, very responsive, organized and has had great suggestions to help me enhance my wedding day. She is has been so calm and patient with me during the entire process as I love to ask questions. I would without a doubt highly recommend her to any bride who is looking for an A+ wedding planner!
Bonny Bailey has not done an event for me, but I have known her as a friend for a number of years. She ia a creative, thoughtful, conscientious and thoroughly professional young woman. I know that if she is involved in your wedding or other special day, then she will do her ultimate best to make it perfect! And on top of all that - she can even teach you to dance!
There is no type of event that anyone can imagine that The D-Tales can't make into a reality. She listened to every crazy thought or rambling...and made the event special and one to remember.
The most helpful tip I could give anyone in working with The D-Tales, don't be afraid to ask! You won't be sorry...
I have worked with April several times and highly recommend her for your wedding day planner.
My family and I have known Bonny Lynn Bailey for many years. Professionally, her friendliness, work ethics, attention to detail and professional attitude are a winning combination. After twenty plus years as an entertainment expert specializing in the wedding industry, there are only a hand full of people you can trust and respect what they do - Bonny | The D-Tales are definitely on my list..
*The D-Tales is Highly Recommended.
The D-Tales is a fantastic wedding planner in Orlando. She makes the life of a bride so much easier as she helps plan the many details of a wedding day. If you are looking for a wedding planner, I strongly suggest her!
She recently wrote an article on the importance of wedding planners for my blog. Please check it out: http://www.dswfoto.com/blog/tag/the-d-tales/
I am a wedding photographer so I know great coordinators - and I chose April. She is great. Bizarrely, I got nervous on my big day (although i do this for a living) and she was THE ONLY person who could calm my nerves. I could go on and on. You are in the best hands with April.
April is a very down to earth person. I am truly happy to have her as a friend. She is an amazing Event Planner. The D-Tales is the name of her company and it suits her well because she does not miss a thing. When you work with April, your special occasion will be a day to remember.
If You want First Class Customer Service along with The Best Planner make sure u call The D-Tales
April is a fabulous & creative event planner who breathes life into every event she works with. Working with her is such a joy, we highly recommend her services for your special day and beyond!
April is absolutely fantastic! She's creative and such a Do-er! Brides who are looking for top-notch coordination, amazing ideas and of course - brilliant details - should run to April! I love every moment working with her! Her energy can't be matched and she always knows how to pick up a shoot when it's starting to lose focus. She is absolutely amazing and I'd recommend her over and over again!
As an officiant, it's comforting to work with a professional wedding coordinator that practices the Association of Bridal Consultants protocol. April knows what she's doing and knows how to keep things running smoothly--which says a lot when it comes to the complexity of a wedding day. The best recommendation I can give is that April is one of very wedding coordinators that I'd trust to work my sons wedding next June. Do yourself a favor and give her a call.
April is great to work with. I recently did an event w/ her out in Deland & this was no small task. As soon as I arrived she was hands on to help & had everything we needed already in place. Through out the night she was there when needed & let us do our thing to make the party happen & the clients happy. She delegates well & is always there when you need her to be. Couldn't ask for more! I'll work with her any chance I get & you should too.

April is one of the most fun and professional coordinators in the industry. She is a down to earth person with awesome ideas.
I have always enjoyed working with April (The D-Tales). She really did an amazing job this past weekend so I wanted to take the time to write about her amazing attention to details (Irony? I don't think so!) The work she did for the event Saturday night was nothing short of incredible, and everyone was able to enjoy themselves, knowing she was 100% aware of what the clients needed as the night progressed. If you want it done right, call April, and listen to her as well- she thinks beyond the usual! Also, as the plans were set, and as party plans change unexpectedly, as they usually do, she adjusted as necessary without stress which is BIG! A+++++ to The D-Tales!
April is amazing. She worked all day until the early morning the next day and never complained. She was extremely organized and got the job done. She made the event an incredible success. She's fun, energetic, and great at her job. Chris and I can't wait to do another event with her :)
April Dorsey is everything you could ask for out of a wedding coordinator. She is organized, creative, attentive, and completely on top of everything.
