  • We had to cancel the large wedding we had planned and instead did a small wedding with our immediate family on fairly short notice. Vanessa went above and beyond what we could have expected and helped make our day so special. She was incredibly organized and pointed out all the important details we had overlooked. She lives up to the DIY reputation and helped create a beautiful wedding on a small budget providing many of her own decorations that she has collected over time. After our first meeting with Vanessa, she assessed our needs and suggested vendors that fit our style and budget. Vanessa was also very organized and professional when dealing with us and our guests. Her planning and coordinating efforts are top notch! We were so lucky to have found Vanessa and wish her the best!!
