  • Alanna was more than just accommodating she made the magic happen. I have worked at Walt Disney World and seen the behind the scenes there and she put them to shame. She made sure the flow of the staff of 40 people felt like only seeing 5 at a time. The flow made sure no guest felt unseen and she was magical. I have never seen a wedding perform like she made it perform and she did it all with an attitude like “oh yeah I got this” she made a dream wedding without even sweating and making sure everyone was at ease. I can’t say enough about her and you will be happy you hired her. 100%

  • We hired Alanna to do our Day of Coordination. It was the BEST decision we made for our wedding. She went above and beyond; helping us with everything and anything from the set up to the week after when vendors were picking up various rentals. My wife and I spent so much time stressing about the details and the flow of the day, and when the day came we had complete faith in Alanna were able to relax and just focus on each other and our guests! Alanna was super easy to communicate with and matched the style of wedding we wanted; she didn't give us an out of the box coordination package, she worked with us on our exact vision, and executed it perfectly. I would highly recommend!

  • I don't even know where to begin. Alanna did the work of an army all by herself. She was so responsive leading up to the big day via email and phone calls. She managed to single-handedly decorate our DIY venue and keep everyone on track for the day. I seriously don't know how she did it. Hands down the best money I spent on my wedding. Hire her! You will not regret it!

  • Alanna is a workhorse! She and her team made our day a success! We couldn’t have executed without her, she was invaluable to making our day perfect. She really does it all, and is so calm throughout the whole process.

  • Alanna is extremely talented and made our wedding so special! She was not intimidated by the idea of having a wedding on a rustic island and handled everything with ease. Leading up, Alanna coordinated our timeline, connected us with other amazing vendors, and filled in our gaps with a seemingly unending list of things that she could provide from napkins to lighting. The week leading up to the wedding, she was able to help us with load in, restroom logistics, folding napkins, floral arrangements, and a million other smaller details. It was a huge weight off our shoulders to know that her and her assistant were there on the big day. In addition to the big things such as making sure we didn't run out of water, Alanna added so many special, unexpected touches like hiking over cold water to the wedding party during photos (it was hot and this definitely saved us!) and bringing us a plate of oysters right after the ceremony. We were so lucky to find Alanna and our incredible wedding wouldn'... Read more

  • Alanna is a superhuman. It’s the best way to describe her. We bit off more than we realized, hosting a weekend of events at a new “venue” (backyard) that had never had a wedding even half as large as ours and having much of it (dress, flowers, food for welcome dinner) completely DIY. Alanna saved the day. She took the reins of setup, physically moving bricks to set up a pole from which she could string lights, setting up all the tables, coordinating with the various vendors, calling in extra help when needed, and going way above and beyond to navigate some challenges with guests. She did all of this with a smile and a “no problem” attitude. Through the pre-wedding process, she patiently answered endless questions from me, my partner, and our parents, calming endless nerves through her experience planning weddings in “less traditional” venues. Amidst all the set-up, she found the time to build in thoughtful little touches for my partner and me. In case that’s not enough,... Read more

  • If you only take one thing from this review, let it be that Alanna is the best gift you can give to a couple getting married. As an event planner myself, I thought I would be planning my entire wedding on my own, and hiring a “day of” coordinator to execute everything. But life is full of surprises, and due to a chaotic year, I ended up 5 weeks out from my wedding with nothing but a lot of people flying into Maine for a wedding that didn’t even have a venue yet. We finally decided to bite the bullet and find someone to help, so I started reaching out to planners in the area. We talked to several, but the second we were on the phone with Alanna, I knew she was “the one”. It was like finding the right dress or the right spouse – I just knew talking to her that she was going to be amazing, and she absolutely was. In fact, I have incredibly high expectations, and she exceeded them. She even impressed my impossible-to-please family, who I’m pretty sure will be invit... Read more

  • Alanna was great to work with start to finish. We were in communication for almost a year leading up to the wedding and she was there for any silly question I had along the way. She was the best investment that we made! The day of we had a few hurdles such as the flowers freezing and dying , our DJ being subpar, and the venue reps. were no where to be found to put on the heat when it was cold. Alanna was able to throw together a makeshift bouquet in no time, assisted the clueless DJ in what he should be doing, and was able to track down the venue rep. to get the heat bumping when we needed it. These were only a few examples of what Alanna did that day to help everything go smooth. Couldn't have done it without her! She is great!

  • Alanna is an incredible, hard-working wedding coordinator who went absolutely above and beyond for our Vermont wedding in September 2018. The wedding was at a private residence in a remote area and she was key in turning it into the perfect wedding venue. She made herself very available for phone calls with us and was very helpful at strategizing and problem-solving. She came up with great vendor suggestions for the area and has helpful connections. We were planning our wedding from afar and only planned to visit the area once some months before the day itself. Alanna drove three plus hours to meet us there so we could walk the property and go over details. When we talked about wanting a keyboard (piano) for the day of, she went out of her way to get one for us off Craigslist. She also has a million things you can borrow. During the wedding weekend itself (including rehearsal, welcome party, and wedding day), she was instrumental in pulling things together. I got to go off to enjoy the... Read more

  • Having Alanna as our day-of coordinator was a great decision. Alanna and her team took care of every detail, big and small, and made everything come together exactly as we had envisioned! If you are looking for somebody to handle all the behind the scenes work so that you can enjoy your wedding, she's the one to call.

  • Hiring Alanna as our day-of-wedding coordinator was one of the best – if not the best – decisions that my husband and I made when planning our wedding this past June. Even though we only officially hired her to work the day of our wedding, Alanna went above and beyond that. She got on the phone with us several times in the months leading up to the wedding, and even toured the venue with us, despite living hours away from the venue at that time. On our actual wedding weekend, Alanna was an expert problem solver. Because of issues with the rentals delivery, we had not gotten the opportunity to set up all our decorations like we wanted. Alanna picked up the slack and made sure everything looked perfect. When a member of the wedding party’s suspenders broke minutes before the ceremony, she was there in a flash sewing them back together. She always made sure my husband and I were fed, hydrated and having a good time throughout the day. To top it all off, she is so incredibly kin... Read more

  • Our wedding could have been an utter disaster, but instead it was the most perfect day I could have imagines. And that’s because of one woman/super hero/goddess: Alanna. She went 1000% above and beyond, helping us from organizing decor and setting up a schedule weeks in advance to arriving on site at 7AM (on an island, I might add) and kicking butt until nearly midnight with humor and a smile the whole time. Everything went off without a hitch, Alanna anticipated potential problems and solved them before they could happen, and also was incredibly great at calming down anxious and overheated wedding party members. I literally don’t know how she could do everything without being a million places at once. She also handled difficult family members and guests with life threatening food allergies with aplomb. Also, I will mention that I’m a wedding photographer myself, and have never worked with someone as calm and collected as Alanna. I wish I could have her at every weddi... Read more

  • I don’t know how we would have gotten by without Alanna. She was an absolute God send. She made our venue look amazing and was there all night to make sure everything went off without a hitch. She was super organized from day one and I would recommend her to anyone. Absolutely worth every penny.
