- Doug has one brother, and chose him to be the best man. Anita has one sister, and chose her to be the maid of honour. It was so amazing to see how close-knit and supportive the bridal party was.
- How calm everyone was. On the wedding day everyone including the bridal party, families, friends, and vendors were all so relaxed.
- The various other vendors that Doug and Anita hired. The florals were beautiful, the cake was beyond delicious, the DJ was so kind and helpful, the food was so yummy, the officiant was funny and easy-going, the cookie favours were perfect, the hairstylist and makeup artist made the bride and maid of honour look beautiful, and the photographers were really awesome.
We had a caterer, moms and a bridal party that was willing to help with our 80 guest wedding, but we were concerned that our moms may feel like they were working the whole night. We decided to go with Jodi, from Jodi Marie Events and we are absolutely thankful we did. Before the big day Jodi helped with arranging wedding day drop off with vendors, helped with timing, answered my slew of questions regarding anything and everything! She had complete contact with the vendors the 2-3 weeks prior to the wedding to eliminate my Husband and I from feeling completely bombarded with questions. She came to our rehearsal, waking through timing etc with us and made us feel comfortable for our big day. Jodi was not only helpful in regards to wedding organization leading up the the wedding, she also helped me keep level headed and was supportive when I was Stressing!
On the big day.... She handled it all. From setting up all our table and the contact from our vendors, down to pinning on corsages and boutineers on our bridal party and hunting down grandparents and pinning them! Before we could think of something that needed to get done, Jodi had done it. She saved the day. She kept everything running the whole night. Jodi prevented a wedding day melt down when I almost walked down the aisle with my bustle done up.
I truly credit our smooth sailing perfect day to her presence and I am so grateful that we made the decision to hire her for our day. If anyone is on the fence with having a day of coordinator, I would highly recommend it. And I have rave reviews about ours. :)" -Anita
