  • Chardonnay is seriously such a joy to work with. From the very beginning, she sets you at ease with her warm spirit and professionalism. The meticulous attention to detail shines during the planning, and she stayed in constant communication throughout. She humbled herself when we asked if she could help keep everything sanitized during our ceremony and reception, which she worked so hard on to to make look like she had a team of 5 doing the decorating. Planning a wedding during a pandemic is challenging, but she was understanding throughout, helping to brainstorm new ideas and necessary changes, so that we could have the best event possible. Chardonnay is a true gem in the field of coordinators, we appreciate her so much and couldn’t have done it without her! Photo by: Jimmy Bui Photography
