  • Don't even hesitate. This was not in my budget but i splurged because i decided it was important. If you have to get rid of some other random silly little detail so you can afford it, just do it. It is worth it to have a day of coordinator. Kristyn was mine, and she did a great job. I was so much more calm just knowing she was there to help with all the weird little things that pop up. Their price beat every other reputable company i looked into in the area.

  • Kristyn was my DOC for my June wedding in Manhattan and she was AMAZING. Her response time was incredibly fast leading up to the wedding, and she was professional, organized, and had a very calming presence which was really helpful during such a crazy time. I highly recommend OUAE and would book with them again in a heartbeat!

  • I recently got married on April 23, 2016 - Donna was my attendant for the day and she was absolutely amazing. Everything was so relaxed and stress-free - especially since I was 6 months pregnant. She had two meetings with us before the wedding day to go over details/vendors - which made the entire process so great. Donna was by my side the entire wedding day helping anyone who needed anything - I will definitely recommend Once Upon An Event services in the future!!

  • I am so happy I made the last minute decision to hire a day-of-coordinator. All along I told myself I wouldn't spend the money but after a year of planning all the little details, I wanted to take a breath, and have someone help me make sure all my hard work turned out the way I had envisioned. Kristyn did just that. I am shy by nature but felt completely comfortable with Kristyn. She felt more like a close friend helping me through the day than a wedding vendor. She confirmed all my appointments and asked all the little details I asked her to confirm. I chose the 12 hour package and I'm glad I did. Kristyn was running around helping me from the moment she arrived until I was back in my hotel room after the wedding. I lost the groom's gift and she went an a hunt around the venue for it. She helped us coordinate the first look. She ran back and forth sooooo many times helping me, the groomsmen and bridesmaids. She made sure the cocktail hour room and reception decor was exactly...

  • I don't know what I would have done without Donna on the day of my wedding. She really took care of so much and went above and beyond. Hubby at first didn't think a day of coordinator would be necessary but after seeing everything that Donna was taking care on the day of, he definitely appreciated having her there and thought it well worth the additional expense. You can't really place value on feeling that things are getting well taken taken care of while you enjoy your day. THANK YOU DONNA!

  • I worked with Kristyn and she was amazing. She made my planning/day so much easier. My wedding was almost perfect with very minor glitches and she helped make it that way. I would recommend Once Upon an Event to anyone.

  • I am beyond grateful to the ladies at OUAE. I'm a planner and organizer by nature but even with that Donna managed to find ways to make my day a complete breeze! They are very professional and are able to accommodate your needs, make you feel comfortable, and get things done. I interacted with Donna but my guests said that she was so good and efficient, they didn't even know she was there! THAT's how good these girls are! Their prices can't be beat and honestly they should think of increasing them, what they offer is truly priceless. Having piece of mind on your wedding is important and with OUAE, you're sure to have it! I can't recommend this company more!

  • There aren't enough words in the english language to explain how thankful I am for Donna and Morgan. I contacted Donna about 4 or 5 months before my wedding, having recently had a problem with another well known wedding planner. I was able to meet with Donna almost immediately, and we clicked instantly. I booked her on the spot for day of coordinating, and I was able to book her as well as another coordinator for less than I had been booked for with my original DOC. Donna was always quick to answer my questions (lots of stupid questions!) and was always reassuring that everything would be perfect. When I arrived at the venue the morning of my wedding, Donna was already there waiting for me. At any point during the day when she saw I was feeling overwhelmed, she would immediately change the situation or diffuse whatever issue there was at hand. Donna and Morgan worked extremely well with my bridal attendant, working as a team to bustle my dress. Anytime I had any questions about anyt... Read more

  • We used Once Upon An Event for day of coordination and Donna was amazing! She made our wedding day go smoothly. She showed up to our hotel and right away was so much help. The shirt was too large on our ring bearer and she went and got the right size shirt for him in time for us to take our photos. We were missing some boutonnieres and she ran to a local florist and got them for us. Life Saver! She handled almost everything for us and took care of dealing with our venue so that we could enjoy our night. Highly recommended!

  • BEST DECISION EVER. Kristyn was fabulous from the get-go. I wasn't sure we needed a day-of coordinator, but had a change of heart when I realized just how much of the decor we were doing ourselves, and I didn't want to pin the set-up/take-down work on a family member for the day. Kristyn was very tolerant of my super-particular notes and lists I gave her, and she and Donna executed everything perfectly. We hit a few speedbumps on the big day with the venue not keeping promises they had made, and I would have melted down without Kristyn and Donna. They took up all communication with the venue, to keep me from getting involved and upset, and smoothed everything over. They were my "extra bridesmaids", holding my hand to calm me, and anticipating absolutely everything. I cannot say enough good things about these women, they are the best planning decision you could possibly make!!!

  • I booked my wedding planner about a year in advance. I had unlimited contact with her via e-mail from the time I booked. Any questions I had were responded to within 24 - 48 hours. It was amazing. If it wasn't for my wedding planner I would have been in tears prior to my first ceremony. She kept me calm through all family craziness during pictures. She even fixed my dress within moments of walking out to the reception because it slightly ripped. Completely worth the money for keeping my sanity and my family sane through a crazy process of a wedding.

  • Absolutely wonderful!! Our day of coordinator, Donna, was one of the biggest reasons our big day went so smoothly! She was so on top of things, and was always calm and helpful- she really helped to keep me calm (or as calm as I could be) during the getting ready process. She took care of everything- she even brought our luggage to our hotel and checked us in! Getting a day or coordinator was one of the best things I did for my own peace of mind- and Donna is the best!!

  • About 3 months away from my wedding I decided to look into a Day of Coordinator. I didn't think I'd ever be able to afford one but I figured what's the harm in looking into it. I found Once Upon an Event, they had my date open and sent me over their pricing. Wow - I was surprisingly shocked that it wasn't totally out of my budget!! I met with Donna, and found out that she also got married at the same venue that I was getting married! I took that as a sign. My church and reception were within hours of each other and my biggest concern was keeping on schedule because we wanted to get to our cocktail hour! I requested to work with Donna and she did not disappoint. We made it to the 2nd half of our cocktail hour, and we were so happy! We were in touch via email most of the time and I always got prompt responses. The week of the wedding we met again and went over all the details. I was having some family issues so she was aware and stayed on top of it for me once we got to the rec... Read more
