  • Hiring Sonya for our wedding was hands down the BEST decision we made. From the beginning, she was so attentive, detailed, so warm and we felt so comfortable with her. She listened to what we wanted, gave us her expert opinions and executed. She is the most thoughtful, creative, fun loving person and we knew we were in good hands from the get go. She took our ideas and ran with them, making our backyard wedding so dreamy and just perfect. She takes the time to understand your visions and what she does with it goes beyond expectations. She is incredible and we are so so happy we had the privilege to work with her. She made our small intimate wedding into an absolute fairytale, it was so dreamy! It exceeded our expectations and we were absolutely floored. I don’t think there’s anything that she can’t do, she does it all! Thank you to Sonya for all that you’ve done and continue to do, again we are so grateful to have had you be a part of our special day!

  • I simply loved working with Sonya! She is the best wedding planner I’ve ever been blessed to work with and I loved all her efforts to pull my wedding day to be a dream wedding! She literally made my wedding a dream come true! Her hard work, dedication, commitment, love, support, and affection for me and my family goes beyond words to ensuring we all had the best day of our lives! Due to COVID we had to change our venue to my backyard within weeks before my wedding day. Her enthusiastic attitude, support, drive, and commitment to making our wedding day the best was simply amazing at how professionally she organized everything to be done. She is simply the best planner out there and there is no one else I would want to be on my side! Sonya has become one of my closest and good friends throughout this experience, and I can definitely count on her no matter what ❤️🥰!!. I cannot wait to have her by my side again next year for our grand reception!! ❤️🍾🥳 I want to thank her... Read more

  • Let me save you some time. If you want to have the wedding of your dreams, hire Sonya before anyone else! From the second we met Sonya, she literally went above and beyond in meeting every expectation and ensuring that we get everything we wanted for our big day. From being an expert planner, sounding board for ideas and vendors, decorator and the best day of planner we could ask for, I can safely say that she was single handedly the best decision we made. And the best part was that she made it feel effortless, and truly like she was a part of our family that wanted the best for us. So don’t hesitate. I cannot recommend Sonya enough!!

  • Let me tell you I didn't even get a chance to work with Sonya cause someone contacted for the same date before but she literally talked to me for an almost an hour or more just the initial phone conversation. she's super responsive and reliable, I was going to have an Indian wedding and first was contemplating signing with her but after talking to countless planners she stood out the most! Why you need to book her is cause she literally went out of her way to find a good referral for me because she couldn't be my planner and I was looking like crazy and just stressed out, she literally went out of her way to find me good referrals, without us working together, like come on, THIS IS A NO BRAINER FOR ANYONE who is even having a Indian wedding and still contemplating if you should book her, do yourself a favor and DO IT! She knows so many vendors the amount referrals she gave me was insane all India btw, which I was super impressed by! I heard from other vendors that she is nice to work w... Read more

  • Sonya is a literal DREAM! She made wedding planning such an easy and enjoyable time in my life! I hired Sonya to be my month of planner and she went above and beyond that! She was always there to answer any question, big or small, via text or phone call and this was BEFORE she actually was working for me. She is always willing to offer advice, input, recommendations, and so much more! She treats your wedding as if it's her own. She honestly was the BEST money I spent on my wedding. If you want to just be the BRIDE at your wedding, I strongly encourage you to hire her. She is the reason that I was a bride at my wedding and not a planner, vendor dealer, kid wrangler, MC, and everything else you become during your wedding.

  • I met Sonya at a wedding expo almost 9-10 months before our wedding date (8/2/19). After having that one conversation with Sonya, I just knew she was the wedding planner I was looking for. She is so passionate about her work and puts her heart and soul into making sure your day is above and beyond perfect. I could not have survived without her!!!! She is more than perfect and efficient at what she does. She was one text/one call away if I EVER needed anything! She had solutions to all my problems. She was available to talk to me whenever I needed her. She was always ahead of my thinking and made thing happen before I could even get to her about it. She is very particular about time and for an Indian wedding that is very important. All of our rituals and events took place in a timely manner and I could not be more happier about that. She is very attentive about the little details and that truly helped me be a little less stressed out the wedding. She took care of coordinating with all o... Read more

  • A week after the wedding and I am still blown away by the work Sonya and her team did. I would trust them with raising my first born. They were efficient, knowledgeable, decisive, and always two steps ahead of what I needed before and throughout the wedding. I had never given a wedding much thought before I got engaged and had a lot of parts of the wedding I had no idea what to do on; Sonya always gave firm, well thought out advice, and picked up on my style and preferences early so she was never suggesting something I didn't like. She was also very cognizant of my budget which I really appreciated.

  • I am so glad we hired Sonya as a day-of coordinator for our wedding! We had a large Indian wedding with many moving parts and small details that were important to us, and Sonya took the time to execute and make sure all items were taken care of! She is very organized and helpful, and knows how to get things done. She always answered random questions of mine over text and even did the beautiful floral bouquets for me and my sister-in-law. Sonya is very talented and a wonderful wedding coordinator. Would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone planning a wedding! She will make your life soo much easier, trust me! I was hesitant to hire a coordinator since I thought our families could handle it but I AM SO GLAD I DID!

  • Hiring Sonya for my wedding (7/13/19) was the single best decision I made during our wedding planning process. I took a chance and found her based on the reviews on Yelp, and I’m so glad I did. From start to finish, she listened and delivered on everything that we wanted to happen in our downtown Chicago wedding. She is super experienced with large weddings (ours was

  • Due to firing my wedding planner at the time I had contacted Sonya last minute. I was very hesitant at first. I was unsure if she would be able to assist me with a 600 + wedding and catch up on all the things my previous wedding planner did not do. I decided to go ahead and send her a message. Surprisingly, Sonya had messaged me back right away and was very responsive and polite. I decided to talk to her on the phone and to give this a try and I am so glad I did. Sonya was extremely attentive, professional, and detail orientated.I was able to talk to her any hour of the day which worked out well for me since I worked nights at the time. She never once ignored me or made me feel like she didn’t have enough time. She was able to assist me with everything my previous wedding planner did and did not do. She went above and beyond and even drove out of her way to my house during my wedding week to assist me with final details. Overall, I am very satisfied and feel like I did not have to w...

  • When my then fiancé and I interviewed Sonya to be our wedding planner, we had already completed some of the groundwork. My pretty bride, however, was not the type that glossed over wedding magazines dreaming of the perfect wedding since she was 10 years old. Moreover, we were trying to finish in 2 months what most couples plan in a year. We knew that we would need help. We had just posted online and Sonya was the first to respond and, fortunately, her office was close to the venue we had just finished visiting. From the very first meeting, we were impressed with how she proactively took us through the steps she would take to bring the wedding planning to a successful finish. We interviewed several others afterwards. Sonya, however, would be the high bar that all other planners had to clear. As we interviewed one candidate after another, we came to the same conclusion after each meeting – they just didn’t measure up to Sonya. The others just did not give us the same level of co...

  • Picking Sonya was the worst decision we ever made. The only thing she knew how to do was bully me into agreeing with whatever she said. She said she was an expert florist and planner but my flowers were awful awful awful they were wilted and broken and dieing before they even arrived. The boutneers were sooo ugly and nothing like the pictures i showed her they all broke when they tried to put them on. The groom one was just a huge ugly wilted rose on a piece of plastic that fell apart almost immediately and same with the mom one was super ugly it had two small beads and and fell apart imediately because it was dry small and dead and was over priced and the groomsmen ones as well. Even her employees agreed, were terrified and were trying to fix them. She over books over promises and under delivers. The bride bouquet was lop sided and not round like promised and wilted like it had been made days ago by a two year old.The only good thing that came of Sonyas services was her assistant A...
