  • Trust me, our wedding day was absolutely perfect and it was all thanks to her. She went above and beyond when it came to every single aspect of our day. Valerie met with us a couple times before and was in contact with us the months coming up to our wedding. She contacted all of our vendors to make sure that every moment went smoothly. Day of she created a perfect schedule for all of us to follow. All throughout our wedding day she made sure every detail was perfect no matter how big or small. Down to fixing glue on a sign that has bubbled and adding beautiful details around the rooms to tie our emerald theme together. She is such a kind person and had a heart of gold. Her professionalism blew us away and all of our vendors loved her! We are so grateful for Valerie!

    Ahhh!! Renee and Larry! You two are the BEST! And so unforgettable. Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. I really couldn't have asked for a better couple to begin my 2020 with. I can't believe it's already been a month since your big day and I can't help but radiate positivity and nostalgia when reading your kind words over and over again. You both are the true example of why I keep doing this and I am so incredibly honored. Thank you so much!!

  • Valerie is great! She has all the tools you will need to make sure you are organized for your big day, including timelines/schedules and lists of questions that you didn't realize you missed. She is amazing on the day of, as well! In addition to being at the venue to make sure our vendors showed up on time, she constantly checked in with to us to see if we needed anything. She also made sure that we only knew about issues that we actually needed to deal with (as opposed to her making the call). Amazing!

  • From the start, Valerie was detail-oriented and an avid listener. We were impressed by the level of details in her quote. Her planning window is generous, and we had no trouble setting appointments with her. On our wedding day, she was a BOSS and made sure everything went as planned. With Valerie, our wedding was a success!

  • Valerie was the ultimate package as we looked for assistance on planning the wedding. She is an amazing coordinator and brought up many questions/scenarios we would have never thought about that made the wedding run super smooth. She has a great attitude and helped us with many key decisions based on her previous experiences and knowing what works best. Would 100% recommend her for your wedding!

  • Working with Valerie was amazing. She is super organized, detail oriented, responsive, and thinks of everything you need/would never think of yourself. She does this all with a positive attitude. Valerie was wonderful with taking initiative with my vendors and handled them all perfectly. I worried about literally nothing on my wedding day because of Valerie. Everything went super smoothly. Highly recommend and would work with her again in a heartbeat!

  • We found Valerie via WeddingWire and it was kismet! She was fabulous to work with, and extremely organized. Valerie has a very calming presence, which was great for this nervous bride! She helped ensure that our day went smoothly, orchestrated all the final details with vendors, and was available to me for all of my "what if" scenarios and etiquette questions. Our wedding had about 120 guests, and we didn't have a big bridal party. Without Valerie there to help on the day of the wedding, I don't think I would have enjoyed it nearly as much. My Type A "manager" mode would have kicked in! Like with any wedding, there were unexpected things that came up and it was much easier to relax and go with the flow knowing that Valerie had it covered. She definitely went above and beyond to ensure that we enjoyed our big day, and worked really hard on the day of the wedding as well as the weeks leading up to it. Thank you Valerie for being an indispensable part of our wedding team!

  • We wanted a Wedding Day-Of Coordinator to ensure our wedding went smoothly and no friends/family had to really "work." I spoke with 3 coordinators in the NYC area, and Valerie came across as the most organized with the best cost value. She started working more robustly with us 6-8 weeks prior to the wedding. She organizes herself with multiple shared Google docs/tabs. She follows up with EVERY.SINGLE.DETAIL that you would never think of yourself (unless you work in the wedding industry). She remains available via phone/text/email and reminds you to stay calm despite your planning circumstances. On the actual wedding day, she was thorough, present, calm and warm. She gives you time reminders throughout the evening and ultimately feels like another wedding guest partaking in the joyous occasion. I was prepared for some things to be out of my control and go "wrong", but honestly I was shocked at how smooth the night went with very minimal hiccups. I would HIGHLY recommend Valerie...

  • I remember wondering if I really needed a wedding planner/day of coordinator. And I am SO GLAD we hired Valerie. She is the one vendor that I am the most grateful we had for our wedding. Why? 1. She is the reason I got to enjoy my wedding day SO MUCH! Valerie makes it so the day goes by so smoothly, her timeline leaves plenty of room and time to actually enjoy every aspect of the day. Never once did I feel rushed: from getting ready, to first look, to family photos. Everything was SEAMLESS. 2. She’ll ask your vendors questions you never thought you needed to ask. This helps to make the wedding day that you have in mind- come into fruition 3. Detail oriented: there is a detailed spreadsheet that has everything organized. Ex. There were personal items that I wanted to make sure I didn’t forget at he end of the night. She asked me to list them (and she listed some common items as well) and all was packed and ready for me to take into the car by the time the event ended! 4. Re... Read more

  • Unbelievable service! We found Valerie online and count ourselves so lucky that we happened across her. She responds to emails within minutes (even at midnight). She thinks of every little detail. She asks all the right questions at the venue. She was friendly, comforting, and SO hard-working. She could honestly charge double, and it'd be worth every penny. We will recommend with valerie to every person we know getting married because selecting any other planner is simply the wrong choice! If she has your date available, you MUST hire Valerie. We will forever be grateful for her dedication in making our day so special! Thanks, Valerie!!

  • My husband and I decided to tackle most of the pre-event wedding organization on our own despite being slightly organizationally-challenged by nature, so we knew that we would need a day-of wedding planner who would be able to pull together all of our scattered plans into a cohesive and hopefully wonderful celebration for a modest gathering of 150 of our closest friends and family members. From our first interaction with Valerie while my husband and I haphazardly planned the various facets of our big day, it became clear that she would have the patience, understanding and organizational skills necessary to pull together all of our loose threads and weave them into a day that surpassed even our most ambitious visions and hopes. Valerie’s attention to detail and incredible professional abilities and experience were incredibly impressive. Each element of her unique skill set was on display from our first pre-event consultation through the craziness of the day itself - which was t... Read more

    Oh. my. goodness!! Micelys, you are an absolute gem! Thank you so, so much for taking this much time, thought, and effort in writing this review. It's as if I just relived your and Andy's big day all over again. Never in my wildest dreams, looking back when I first started all of this, would I have ever expected to read this level of kind words and feedback from someone I had only met for a few months. It always blows me away how someone (like you) can reach out to me, trust me entirely, and I become part of your special memories forever, however small of a time frame I was a part of your life then and how much impact I had created from it. I know it took some time to write this since your big day last year, so I am so incredibly grateful that you are still thinking of me. It means the world!! From the bottom of my heart, thank you again Micelys and Andy. I wish you both the best of married life and happy holidays! You have truly made my month and end of year!!!

  • Valerie was an amazing month-of/day-of wedding coordinator extraordinaire! Not only is she super organized and responsive, she's really a nice and caring person with a calming personality. The last few weeks leading up the wedding were stressful trying to juggle all of our vendors and get all the moving parts into place, and Valerie made it all run so smoothly. She braved a crazy storm to go to our site visit/run through and spent numerous phone calls and emails making sure all the pieces were in place with a thorough timeline (not to mention making sure I didn't have a breakdown!). My main request for the day of our wedding was for her to be our problem solver and she really went above and beyond. Virtually no issues reached me, and my husband and I were able to really able enjoy our wedding. I would definitely hire her again!!

  • Valerie was amazing from the beginning to the end. She was constantly in touch with us and always assured us that everything will turn out well. She was very professional and organized. She made herself available for site-visits and several phone calls with us. We both really loved how she got in touch with our other vendors and planned out the whole day for us. She went out of her way to get the details down and come up with a workable schedule. Even on the wedding day, she was very attentive to our needs and constantly checked with us and gave us updates. She really did an amazing job coordinating with our MC and the venue. We could see that Valerie really cared and was passionate about her role on our big day. She is just an amazing person overall and we really think the event couldn't have been possible without her help!

  • We hired Valerie as our Day-of Wedding Coordinator for our wedding at the Dumbo Loft. She is organized, thorough, and easy to work with. She also had great input for arranging details of the Ceremony (e.g., order of folks walking, timing, reading verses, etc.). It was also great to have someone else run point on our wedding day, so we could truly enjoy it. She made a trip or two when I needed extra accessories and toiletries. Thank you, Valerie!! ❤️

  • We did most of the planning ourselves, but Valerie played an important role in keeping us on track throughout the process. She was extremely quick to respond to our emails, which was perfect for getting a 2nd opinion on the decisions we were making (especially around the timelines and floorplans). It was so nice to be able to hand over all the booked vendors and plans, and have her ensure that the logistics were ironed out and communicated with all parties. We were pretty organized so I'm not sure we absolutely needed a day of coordinator, but I must admit I didn't think or worry about a single detail throughout my entire wedding day, so I'd say it was well worth it!
