I have officiated now my 7th wedding in the last 10 years. And working with wedding planners is something I have done in each instance. From the rehearsal to the ceremony itself is the experience I get with most planners. I will tell you from day one of having the honor of being asked to marry the couple, Devon has been amazing. For the first time I had a wedding planner reach out to me in prep of the big day. I knew timelines, processional order, and cadence to the reception before arriving on site. Our communication early was key to deal with unforeseen issues on the wedding day and last minute changes. We worked together very nicely and you will not be disappointed with Devon taking the reigns on your special day. She knew what to keep, cut, and alter through the night to make the day a perfect setting for the couple. Here attention to detail is second to none. Most important in what I witnessed was her communication with the couple and others to keep things moving in a way that blended into the whole day, thus making it seamless and as if she wasn’t even there. I recommend Devon 10 times over, you will have the same thoughts with her as well.
Where to begin? Choosing Devon to coordinate our wedding was quite simply the greatest gift we could have ever given ourselves. From day one, when I first met Devon, her bubbly personality and light sense of humor (and just being totally adorable) completely won me over. I knew “this was my kind of gal”. Little did I know just how truly amazing she would be – not only as a wedding coordinator but as someone who would become a friend. I honestly cannot even begin to imagine what our wedding would have looked like without Devon – she meticulously took care of every detail with the organization of a goddess, and made it all look so effortless! She was in full contact with all of our vendors (who still to this day, rave about how wonderful she is and how great it was to work with her – oh, and they would constantly remind me (rightfully so!) just how lucky I was to have Devon. I couldn’t have agreed more. The day of the wedding, even her husband so graciously helped her set up THE ENTIRE CEREMONY & RECEPTION (a 9,000+ sf hall, gasp). I cannot even put into words, the overwhelming feeling of gratitude that rushed over me when I walked into the wedding hall for the first time that day (mind you, I had not lifted ONE finger ALL day – Devon made sure all of my time was well spent soaking in all the glory of our magical day – and so I did) I was in my wedding dress with the ceremony less than an hour away, unsure of what was behind those doors. But, with no surprise and in true Devon fashion – it was pure perfection. It was more than I could have dreamt of. She had every little detail placed perfectly with so much thought, time, effort and energy. And that’s not it. She also emceed a good chunk of our wedding as we didn’t have the traditional DJ to do so – she stepped up with no hesitation to ensure everything was smooth sailing. Thanks to Devon, I was probably one of the few brides who were able to avoid the stress and truly cherish and enjoy each moment, including each day leading up to the wedding! She was literally a godsend. More than my right hand – both hands! Oh and did I mention that she was 6 months pregnant with her second baby girl during all of this?? YUP. A true boss lady. I honestly cannot rave enough about this woman – thank you for everything Devon, we are indebted to you!
Hiring Devon was the best decision of my life! With her knowledge of event planning she was able to give us advice and help us plan every little detail that needed to be handled for our daughters wedding. She was even able to manage all the different personalities involved with the wedding so that my husband and I could just enjoy the day. I will hire her again, love her!!!
