  • As our day-of wedding coordinators, Fabienne and her crew made our wedding day truly perfect and as seamless as anything I’ve ever experienced. They anticipated everything in terms of setup, managing the schedule, potential snafus or complications, and everything else—and thanks to their efficient professionalism and behind-the-scenes sleight of hand, we (the bride and groom) had only to follow their lead for a perfectly executed wedding day. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, Fabienne was always on the ball, responsive and knowledgeable and well prepared, and equally importantly, always very kind and easy to work with. In short, Fabienne and her crew are absolutely top-notch and we’d hire them again in a heartbeat!

  • BLUF: Fabienne is an industry pro, a fierce advocate, a talented creative, and a kind person with integrity. Hire her and rest assured that you made an excellent choice. Fabienne was everything we wanted and everything we had no idea that we needed. In a setting where COVID-19 changed many aspects of our wedding plans and her own workflow, Fabienne remained a constant, assuring presence. She made us feel like no detail was too small to be addressed and no question was irrelevant. Even with her having to reschedule many of her clients due to the pandemic, we never felt lost in the mix. The wedding industry can be also overwhelming and opaque sometimes. Fabienne asked us questions about how we imagined our ideal wedding day and then helped us keep focus – and out of the rabbit holes of Instagram and Pinterest. Her network of other wedding professionals is extensive, and we took advantage. She also suggested helpful ways for us to save money and guided us as we tried to underst... Read more

    Wow, tears! We try so hard to do all that we can during this time that is challenging for all. It is lovely to be so appreciated and acknowledged for that, by couples who are facing their own various challenges. We also look forward to next year's celebration with you and it will be here before we know it!

  • Fabienne was outstanding to work with from start to finish. I immediately appreciated her responsiveness to our accelerated timeline and multiple methods of communication (phone, email, Pinterest). I was blown away by how spot on she was to the look we were going for: from the bouquets to the big arrangements to the greenery lining the fireplace. She was willing to work with our budget and pulled together a fantastic vision. We didn't meet until the day of the wedding which required me to let go a bit, but WOW was it worth it!

    Oh, Anna you are the sweetest! We loved working with you and wishing you all the best! Great teamwork for you to give us your ideas and then let us sort out the right designs within your esthetic and budget - win win!

  • Thank you so much for the AMAZING flowers for our big day. As the day becomes a memory, the images that come to mind are of a beautiful sunny day adorned with seasonal and stately floral arrangements that complemented the style of our wedding just perfectly. This didn't happen by accident. Fabienne worked closely with me to ensure that the arrangements fit my personal style and the vision of the event.

  • Fabienne was an exceptional wedding planner. She was always available to address any concerns that I had as a bride. She was great with listening to everyone's wants and needs, while always keeping my interests in the forefront of the wedding planning process. I am glad that I had the opportunity to work with Fabienne and her team, and would recommend Wedding Muse to anyone. Her day-of team was also Fantastic! There wasn't a request to big or too small that they couldn't address in a heartbeat.

    We had a lot of fun with this wedding, the venue, the other vendors and getting to know your family so well. Special mentions to the father of the bride for doing the inquiry and hiring process all on his own and the mother of the bride taking over after he gave his full seal of approval. This all meant so much to us, getting to work so closely as a team with both the parents and the couple. What a family, what friends we made.

  • If you are looking for a wedding coordinator and florist, look no further. Fabienne and her team were simply the best. I was supposed to get married in April 2020, but due to COVID-19 had to postpone. After uninviting a significant number of guests, I downsized my wedding to 62 people on November 21. A week before the wedding, the governor of Virginia issued new regulations prohibiting gatherings of more the 25 people. Fabienne was with me in every one of these changes, guiding me and supporting me. I did get married on November 21, and Fabienne did a PHENOMENAL job with the flowers and the coordination. In the midst of all of these issues, Fabienne made my dream come true. Hiring her was the best decision of all my wedding planning. Thanks so much, Fabienne. We owe you so much.

    It was so easy to be your support team. Every step was a chance to make sure you had as much of your dream as possible. Those DC rooftop views, the vendor team, the kindness of you and your guests, the music, the love, the food - perfection! Best of everything to you and special gratitude for making your vendors feel so appreciated.

  • Planning a wedding during COVID sure wasn’t easy, especially when you had to change the venue (site unseen), cut the guest list, and work with the vendors on a new location. Cue Fabienne. She was everything I could have asked for in a planner and more. She knew the venue so well, she was incredibly communicative and responsive, and she worked with the other vendors well. The day of, there were some minor setbacks, but Fabienne did a fantastic job making sure we got back on schedule and resolving the situations. I was able to fully enjoy my day. Not to mention the flowers were beautiful. She did such an incredible job, and I highly recommend her services!!

  • Fabienne was extremely helpful and responsive from the day that we booked with her. Even though we just booked for day of services she sent us emails to check up on our wedding planning process and to see in we needed help navigating wedding planning in a COVID world. It was so nice having someone check in to make sure we were doing alright with the wedding planning. Fabienne and Sarah made sure things ran smoothly and safely during our rehearsal and wedding. We're so thankful for their help, I new I could trust them to run everything and we could enjoy our wedding.

    Thank you so much for your kind review. You planned the perfect wedding and we were very appreciative of your attention to COVID concerns, while still having a festive night to remember! The desserts!!! The beautiful gift baskets!!! The wine!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you for making us feel like family!

  • Fabienne was extremely helpful helping my husband and I through the process of getting our wedding plans in order. She was truly knowledgeable and helped us think of a plethora of things to make our day run smoothly. We are so happy we chose wedding muse to handle our day of coordination. She was quite easy going and worked with us at our level. Boy, did we have a laid-back wedding, and she was so flexible and understanding to our crazy way of doing things. She took our chicken scratch directions and piles of junk and turned it into a magical wedding with class!!! I have no complaints at all, and we will recommend her to everyone we know!

    responded with the following comments.

    Aww, that is the sweetest! Heehee, the chicken scratch and piles - there 'may' or may not be a little truth to that part:-) In the end, everyone pitched in and together we made it happen. It was indeed one of the most magical, the ending with the bonfire, the bluegrass tunes and everyone sitting around by the beautiful moonlight - awesome and you deserve more credit than you are giving yourself for creating such a perfect atmosphere full of genuine love. Thank you for having us be a part of it!

  • We cannot say enough about how wonderful Fabienne is. Our wedding process has been a rollercoaster, and we ultimately had to cancel our wedding twice due to COVID, but Fabienne was there from day 1 holding our hand through the whole process. Even before COVID, she helped us navigate and negotiate with a difficult vendor and provided incredibly valuable advice and recommendations as we planned our wedding in a very short (3 month) time frame. She was familiar with our venue and the local vendors, which was very helpful. Once COVID hit she was incredibly responsive and compassionate. Every time we felt we hit a roadblock she came in, eased our stress, and led us forward. She is both a good person and a great wedding planner. Ultimately we had to cancel our wedding and will be getting married in a small backyard ceremony, but we are so grateful our first planning decision was to hire Fabienne.

    responded with the following comments.

    These are the times when being a wedding planner is all the way worth it, for good times and bad. Thanks so much for taking this extra effort to review us, even though we didn't make it to wedding day. I enjoyed getting to know both of you and wish you the best future and interesting wedding stories you will tell. 'Once, then twice when we tried to get married...'

  • We can't thank you enough for all your hard work for our wedding. You were always so professional and you continued to bring fresh ideas. Thank you for keeping us sane and at ease on one of the biggest and important days! You played a key role by taking care of all the details that allowed us to fully enjoy the day and not worry about a thing. I loved how you were my advisor throughout the wedding planning process and I appreciated having you to consult for guidance and feedback during a stressful time – it was definitely less stressful with your help and expertise! Our wedding day turned out better than expected with COVID-19 and we had the most wonderful memories with our family and friends thanks to your help and outstanding attention to detail.

  • For 8 months we worked closely with Fabienne and at every turn in the planning her experience and professionalism was evident. She was always pleasant, even with the Covid bumps in the road, she made a great adviser but never a control freak, and her connections in the wedding industry were a valuable. Fabienne kept my daughter and I on task in every phase of planning with a well planned schedule/timeline, gentle reminders, detailed emails, phone conferences when needed and more. She made a great general with a well executed plan and I'd hire her again and recommend her to anyone. Jeanine Lawson, Gainesville

  • I am still beaming with joy, pride, and gratitude after recently experiencing “the best weekend ever”: my son and daughter-in-law’s wedding. Three magical, beautiful days on a 23-acre farm—Friday’s rehearsal/family dinner and welcome reception for 90, Saturday’s wedding and reception for 200, and Sunday’s farewell brunch for 80—required a highly creative vision, enormous planning, a collaborative spirit, and extremely well-coordinated execution of plans. . . all of which was greatly facilitated by Fabienne Laveau, owner and lead designer of “Wedding Muse Planning, Design, and Florals”. Engaging Fabienne as the wedding coordinator was one of the most important—and best—decisions the bride and groom made. Fabienne was a great listener who offered advice and guidance without being pushy or minimizing others’ opinions. Her professionalism, knowledge, contacts, organizational skills, creative talent, attention to details, and ability to remain calm in the face ... Read more

    This was one of the best weekends ever, for sure! So many amazing elements and what a collaboration it was from both families, the vendor team and the role you graciously allowed us to play. Unforgettable down to the smallest details! Thank you for selecting us to be such a part of it.

  • Fabienne was wonderful at our wedding. When my then soon to be wife spoke with her for the first time over the phone, she received the kind of vibe that later showed in the wedding day through the beautiful display of decorative flowers. Our approach was to to give all the power to Fabienne and for her to use her creative imagination on the day of our wedding. This is hard for most couple to give total control over to someone else, but that was the trust that my wife had when she spoke with Fabienne. All she told Fabienne was her colors for the wedding and Fabienne was able to create a master piece from Bouquets, Corsages, to the Boutonnieres, and table decorations. She was professional at her work, flexible, and available whenever we had questions. Best Florist ever!!! Thank you Fabienne for making our dream wedding so beautiful in colors!! We could not tell you how many complements we've received from families, friends, and acquaintances about how beautiful the decorations and flo... Read more

    *There is an error, this wedding was actually held on 4.14.19* Oh my goodness! We loved working with you and the freedom you gave us. We swear we do even more beautiful work when the client REALLY trusts us! Thank you so much for your confidence in us and the beauty of your shining personalities. We loved it all.

  • What can I say? We were so blessed to have an amazing group of vendors, Fabienne being one of them. I can't begin to tell you how off the ledge I was when I first reached out to talk to Fabienne, who calmly talked me back on. I had soooo many staff turnover issues at the hotel and I was freaking out, I was convinced the day would be a disaster. My husband and I finally agreed to get a planner (more for my sanity) I talked to so many that I just didn't connect with on the level that I did with Fabienne. She heard me, I mean really heard me, talked me through all of my concerns and assured me she would be there for US on the BIG day. My husband wanted me to do whatever gave me piece of mind on the day of and for me that was hiring Fabienne - best decision I made. I knew the moment I talked to her that I found my planner! She is responsive, punctual, diligent, smart, assertive where she needs to be (we were in my hotel staff's "house"), but most importantly she was there for us. She went ... Read more

    Wow, I hardly know what to say. It is obviously our job, that is the big part of why we do what we do. Then sometimes we get the nicest bonus of really clicking and really being able to assist in so many ways. Thank you for being such a great couple and for appreciating us, as we always try to go the distance plus a little extra.
