  • Dawn was AMAZING! From the beginning, she was on top of everything, down to the smallest details. She was so knowledgeable about my venue (Waterfall Lodge), had great recommendations and knew how to deal with any obstacles that came up, quickly and efficiently. Everything on our wedding day ran so smoothly thanks to her!

  • Dawn is absolutely awesome! We hired her much later in the process, about 6 weeks before our wedding. We had to change all of our wedding plans to accommodate COVID and Dawn saved us from such a huge headache. She helped us plan the flow of the wedding in my parents backyard and helped us communicate with all our vendors. She created an awesome timeline for us, and as we changed things last minute, she communicated with all our vendors to the changes. She didn’t nickel and dime us and helped us remember what is important to us. She was very prompt with her emails, calls and texts and extremely professional. She also helped us navigate having a very small wedding in the midst of a pandemic. She reached out to every vendor to ensure safety for all our guests, vendors and wedding party. If I had to do it all over again, Dawn would be the first person I hired in the wedding planning process.

  • It's challenging to even begin to describe how incredibly integral Dawn was in pulling off our wedding; there are just so many ways she helped us. Not only was she constantly calm and positive when we faced any obstacles, but she was also straightforward and efficient every step of the way, which was so assuring and helpful. We were in a lot of difficult or unsure circumstances. We had planned for a spring wedding in a redwood forest where the forecast was wavering back and forth about whether there would be rain (since most of the venue was outdoors, this meant we went back and forth on a very expensive tenting decision, which Dawn was absolutely integral in coordinating). I'm in law school and my now-husband works full time, so we were not always on top of wedding decisions, and Dawn would check in with us and sweetly get our butts in gear when we needed it. We were also dealing with my husband's mom being very ill, so we were having to plan two versions of the wedding: one where... Read more

  • At our wedding venue we had to contract and arrange everything with the vendors directly so we hired Dawn as a wedding coordinator and she did a fabulous job! She gave us many recommendations for all the different vendors, guidance on what order to do things. She put together the timeline and coordinated that with all the vendors. She also gave us some recommendations on what worked well at this venue, since she was so familiar with it - those were great tips, things we hadn't thought of. Dawn was always available by text or email to answer questions and responded quickly, which i really appreciated. She managed all the vendors, even some setup for us, and directing quests on the wedding day - it went so smoothly and we didn't have to worry about anything. The wedding day was amazing, everyone said what a great time they had. and we couldn't have pulled it off without Dawn.

    Doris, thank you so much for the kind review! I had so much fun working with you and will miss our correspondences. -Dawn-

  • When we first started planning I never thought I would want a wedding coordinator. However our venue suggested dawn as it was a more remote location and a little tricky to work with for other vendors and they said Dawn knew everything and would make it a breeze. That’s exactly what she did. Her pricing is very fair, she available all the time for any question big or small and always had an answer or would find one for us. There’s no way our day would have been as magical without her! She was wonderful and i would recommend her to anyone looking for help since planning such a big event with so many moving parts can be overwhelming. Thanks Dawn!!

  • Dawn was amazing! She was primarily my day of coordinator, but also included prelim vendor coordination. We had some issues with my caterer, but she assisted us and worked to manage them (above and beyond her scope). Not only that, her responsiveness was amazing. Most vendors don't talk to you much until a month before the wedding. She was not like this. She reached out multiple times over the course of planning and helped provide advise on multiple situations. She provided multiple vendor recommendations, sadly most were booked when I contacted them. But she did really well in coordinating vendors that were new to her. Her experience and recommendations for events/timeline were solid and we adopted almost all of them. On the day, she used walkie-talkies that were a genius idea. Helped a lot, especially because the layout of our venue. The day turned out amazing. She was flexible in sudden changes/items that came up, and worked well with my family. All in all, I highly reco... Read more

  • Dawn was great. I knew going into it that I was a bad planner so she went the extra mile to help me organize my big day. She gave me great referrals that I used and were familiar with the property. She was very organized with the paperwork of our timeline so it was easy to use on my end and understandable. She called and texted me back immediately when I just had quick small questions. And the most important she

  • We hired Dawn as a day of co-ordinator for our wedding. We hired her a month before the wedding to develop the day of schedule, checkin with vendors and make sure everything goes well on the wedding day. One of our concerns was insufficient parking at the venue so she helped us figure out parking for vendors and shuttling guests. She worked with the venue and other vendors to make sure everything went smoothly. She helped us develop a detailed day of schedule and helped us manage rentals. Dawn is incredibly responsive and helpful. Thanks to her the wedding day went very smoothly and we could focus on enjoying it.

  • My husband and I worked with dawn at waterfall lodge, and she was amazing. She has been super responsive through the whole process, took care of collecting insurance info, helped us follow up with vendors if they weren’t being responsive and has a very relaxed demeanor which was so nice to be around. Also, any time we had questions or wanted to set up a call. Dawn would make herself available within the next day, or get back to us same day via email. Her experience and relationship with the vendors and venue owners was invaluable at waterfall lodge as well. After all the events she’s done there, she’s a pro!

  • Dawn is literally the only reason I kept sane when I had the brilliant idea to take on wedding planning, working full time, graduate school full time, and just life in general. She was easy to get along with, quick to respond, and always had an answer for any question that randomly popped up. As expected at any wedding, there were minor hiccups here and there, but Dawn immediately took it on without hesitation to ensure my husband and I did not feel the stress even the slightest bit. She was fun and personable, but also professional and kept things running smoothly while handling the loving chaos that we call family and friends! Dawn walked with us through the venue the night before the wedding, taking notes on all the decor we wanted out so she could handle it all the next morning - come wedding day, everything was beautiful and beyond our expectations. She even continuously made sure my husband and I had food/drinks throughout the night knowing us grabbing dinner or a drink from the ... Read more
