Weddings by Shaheen
Gabby was our Day-of Coordinator, and we had a really great experience with her. Even before the wedding, she was very helpful. She answered any questions that I had, and was very quick to reply to my emails.
On the day-of she took care of everything. All of our decorations were set up exactly as we had planned. She made sure we stayed on schedule throughout the reception, despite some rather lengthy toasts. At the end of the night, she got everything packed up and sent back with the right people. She even went back the next day and picked up the top-tier of our cake, which we had left at the restaurant, and hand delivered it to us at our hotel.
Most of all, she just made sure that the only thing we had to think about the whole night was enjoying ourselves and spending time with our guests.
We worked really hard planning our wedding, and we were very glad to have someone like Gabby there to help us make sure it paid off. We would definitely recommend Gabby to anyone looking for a Day-of Coordinator.
Gabby was a God send!!! I don't know what I would have done without her on our special day! She took charge and I wasn't bothered at all during the day with questions from everyone. She truly cares about her brides and this was so apparent! I appreciated all she did for us in sticking with the schedule and even though we had a couple bumps along the way during the reception, she kept it all together and flowing.
My reception venue, Braemar Country Club, even commented on how great she was and asked where I got her from. Everyone thought she was very professional and right on task, not to mention - all of our guests are amazed that our wedding started right on time, too!!!
Gabby was our day of coordinator! We where so happy to have been able to have Gabby their to help us! I was always able to reach her and she was always very helpful! The day of was great with her taking care of all the details and I really was able to enjoy my day knowing she was handling all my details! thank you Gabby!
Gabby was our Day of Coordinator on 8-31-08 at the Wilshire Ebell Club. She is a true gem! She definitely made our wedding the best it could be. Gabby is a take charge girl who gets things done with grace and charm. She helped us above and beyond our expectations. She put together our entire rehearsal (in place of our Rabbi who was not able to make it). She grabbed her notebook and took charge. She walked us through every ceremony detail with ease. She arrived early and stayed later than necessary. She boxed up every single item from our reception and put it in the Grooms car at the end of the night. She even had our cake boxed up. I found things in the boxes that I never expected to see again. She is very thorough and very thoughtful.
She is quick to respond to any and all problems. Our place cards were blowing over in the wind and Gabby secured them with ribbon and tape she also had to scramble to find a hurricane cover for our candles because the wind kept blowing out the flame. The problems were handled without my knowing and everything magically came together! She also aided with a seating mishap (I left someone off the list!) she was able to politely explain to the guest that it was her fault and the card must have been misplaced. She also drove all the way to Glendale to take our cake stand back to the cake maker! She definitely goes above and beyond the call of duty and does it happily. Gabby has the ability to take charge and handle problems and is not scared to make decisions on her own, which is a huge benefit to any bride.
I could go on and on, but Gabby is the best girl for your wedding!!! You will not be disappointed. She is really smart and extremely knowledgeable about weddings (and many other things). She is very creative and offers ideas without being overbearing. She is prompt, courteous, VERY professional and extremely sweet and easy to work with. At the end of the night, she was calling the staff (at our venue) by their names which was a big plus because it shows that she works well with others and gets them in her corner so theyre more willing to help if anything goes wrong.
Another important note to make is that Gabby is passionate about her work. She LOVES weddings and will make your wedding as special as her own. She values the importance of a stress free day and does everything in her power to achieve that. You will not have to worry about ANYTHING when Gabby is on the job. You can trust her with your vision and carrying out every detail you wish.
