She definitely does not disappoint please call her without hesitation and her price are very reasonable. Thank you for reading my review+

  • Ivy Rivero was the most amazing wedding planner I have ever met. I have seen a couple of my friends use her services for their weddings (and their weddings came out perfect), so I went ahead and booked her for mine. My husband and I met with Ivy in the beginning and we spoke about our vision as a couple for our special day. She was very professional, prompt, kind, and creative. I am the type of person that worries about every detail. However, Ivy was on top of everything plus by booking her, I was able to receive access to the Wedding Aisle website which helped me organize my seating chart, guest list, and more. The month before my wedding, I gave Ivy all my plans and she took over everything. She contacted vendors, made sure everything was in order, and helped me in all other areas. At the rehearsal, she made sure everyone was in order and made sure everything was ready for the day of. The day of the wedding, Ivy brought me so much peace because I knew everything was in control and wa... Read more

  • Ivy was a great choice for our Day-of Coordinator. She made our wedding perfect! She was so responsive and so helpful with my planning process. She helped our wedding vision come to life, creating detailed timelines for each of the vendors, handled all the vendor communication and so much more. We hired Ivy close to the end of our planning process and she made sure nothing was missed and that I was on top of the final details. It was great to bounce ideas off of her and she did such an amazing job making sure all our details were setup. Definitely a great choice!

  • Hiring Rivero Events was the best investment to the preparation of our wedding and for the wedding day! We took the package of having them the day of the wedding. My entire wedding day ran so smoothly that I didn’t even have a single worry at all. All I needed to focus on is myself and enjoying the moment. Which is what it’s suppose to be! Months, weeks and days before our wedding we’ve met up with Ivy to talk about specific details, ideas, itinerary and timeline of the wedding. She had provided a file of everything you need to know about planning a wedding and even had a website for us to conveniently check on anytime we need to. She’s very thorough and extremely organized about everything. It was also helpful to know that I can contact her anytime via email, call or text if there’s anything at all I need including my crazy ideas, which I’m glad she opened my eyes to a more realistic expectation. Sometimes we can get carried away with Pinterest! Lol Being an organ... Read more

  • Ivy is extremely friendly, professional, on top of things, and the service is at an extremely affordable price. I didn't want my wife to go through an extremely stressful time of planning a wedding. So we talked to a few wedding planners and decided to go with Ivy. Ivy was extremely knowledgeable and know what to do and when to get things done. She definitely took away all our stress before and during the wedding, so we could enjoy this special day thoroughly. Definitely talk with Ivy regarding your needs for your special day to see what she can do for you, you won't regret it!

  • We had booked Ivy 2 weeks prior to the wedding. My husband was apprehensive in getting a day of coordinator but things were getting overwhelming. Booking Ivy was the best decision we've ever made! With two weeks left to spare, Ivy was on top of everything else we had to do. From tidying up our timeline to calling all the vendors to make sure everything was a go for our wedding day. Let me tell you- our wedding could not have gone smoother and I believe that it due to having Ivy as our coordinator! Our ceremony venue was extremely strict and we only had 30 minutes to set up before guests started arriving. Ivy called the attendant of our venue and was able to get them to open the gates a lot sooner than we had expected (which is really rare for them to do!) As for our reception, Ivy managed to stay on track with the timeline we had while dealing with 360 guests! I am an extremely type A person and so I was also worried since I had to let go and have someone else take lea... Read more

  • Ivy was our day of coordinator. From the first day we met her, we instantly had this connection and can tell she was very accommodating and easy to work with. She was very professional, organized, and helpful. I got married in a Catholic Church, and during our rehearsal they informed us that we couldn't throw rose petals on the aisle. Without hesitation, Ivy willingly reached out to the priest to advocate for us and she made it happen. Well it may not seem like much, she understood how important these little details meant to us. We couldn't have done it without her! Anytime I had questions about recommendations for different vendors, she was quick to research and provide me the information within a day. From the moment we met Ivy until the moment she left it was clear to us that she did everything she could to make sure our day was perfect. From setting up, coordinating with vendors, creating our timeline, and simply being there for us every step of the way, Ivy knocked it out of the... Read more

  • We hired ivy as our day of coordinator for our 200+ wedding and she was great. I had already done a lot of the vendor hiring when we found her, but she started working with us 30 days before the wedding and called vendors, finalized contracts, set up of decorations for the wedding, made the timeline, and coordinated the rehearsal dinner. It was nice to have someone to help with phone calls and questions as the wedding got closer because I was doing it all alone before. She took away a lot of pre wedding stress. She also always answered her phone and was very pleasant to work with. Thanks Ivy!

  • Ivy made it easy for us to plan our wedding because she always reassured us that she would take care of everything. She helped the us, the bridal party, and our families get to know each other very well considering they are all from a different circle of friends and are all from different cultures. Ivy also worked with us down to the smallest detail and made sure to plan our wedding to the very best of her ability. She was friendly, quick to respond, and very easy to work with. We would highly recommend Ivy to any of our friends and family!

  • Ivy Rivero is an excellent wedding planner. We were extremely satisfied with her work for our wedding on June 3rd 2017. From choosing vendors to picking out table clothe colors, Ivy helped us a lot. She was always on time to every meeting and she always had an answer to our questions. She made our journey of planning easy. She is very professional, honest and is equipped with the proper / newest tools (technology) to help you plan your wedding. She is a very hard worker. She loves her work and is worth every penny. She has a very calm way of handling pressure/stress for the actual wedding. She goes above and beyond expectation the extra mile. She cares a lot and gives a fight for her client. The result in our wedding was outstanding. I will recommend her for events she does this, because she believes in the commitment of marriage.

  • My new hubby and I love Ivy! She is very accommodating and is very easy to talk to. She listens to all of your needs and stays very professional and sweet. (I had a break down or two on her and she talked me through it). If I could have afforded the full package to have her full time I would have done so, she is on it! Since, we only had her for the day of coordinator this included use of Aisle Planner, this site is awesome for timelines, calendars, invoices, guest lists, RSVPs. It was so easy to use and everything was all in one place! She does so much more than just the day of coordinating, she is with you for the whole wedding process helping you along the way. I received so many compliments from our guests on how everything ran smoothly on the day of our wedding. I will definitely be recommending Ivy to our friends and family. Oh, and if you need recommendations for vendors, Ivy knows them all!! Give her a call, she will make sure your wedding day is absolutely perfect!

  • I have known Ivy since middle school but after we graduate high school, we went our separate ways. I got engaged in November of 2015 and Ivy reached out to me to ask me if I needed help planning my wedding. I thought I didn’t need help but I was definitely wrong. I decided to meet up with her over coffee and talk about this. Ivy came prepared with all these notes, resources and packets on what needed to be done to plan a wedding. Ivy has a very artistic and creative vision. She helped me pretty much planned my entire wedding; from setting my budget, to picking my color, theme, décor. We also went to a wedding show together! Ivy also helped find decorations and supplies that were in my budget. If there was an item that we couldn’t find, she made it for me! My wedding was pretty stressful because my husband was in the military. My husband never really gave me a set date when he was coming back so when I picked the date, we prayed that everything would work out and he was ... Read more

  • From the first phone call I had with Ivy, I felt like she knew her stuff through and through. I hired her as a month of coordinator, but whenever I had questions throughout the planning process, she was available through email. She also checked in on us from time to time to see how we were progressing with the wedding planning. My one request for Ivy was that if something were to go wrong on the wedding day, I didn't want to know about it, and she delivered! From what we could see, everything went smoothly, and my husband and I were fully invested in enjoying ourselves and mingling with our guests. We received so many compliments on how wonderful the wedding was, and even my husband noted how Ivy was on top of everything. She kept everything on track and made sure to follow-up with us after the wedding to see how we were doing. I would definitely recommend Ivy to any bride!

  • Ivy and her team were AMAZING on the day of our wedding. She was on top of things. Our bridal party and guests were so impressed with how she was on top of things and how professional she was. Our wedding day would not have been a success without her help. She listens to all your needs and wants and makes everything you dream of come true.
