Quincey & PARKER

"Ali was the most organized and enthusiastic person I have ever worked with.  I wasn't anxious on my wedding day because I knew Ali had it all handled. By the end of the planning process, I was sad my meetings with Ali would be over !" 



"Ali was with us every step of the way from major decisions to the minutiae of planning a multi-day event for 200 guests. She is a consummate professional: organized, efficient, pro-active, responsive, thoughtful, diplomatic and full of great suggestions from the creative to the practical."

"Ali is incredibly detail oriented, but never loses sight of the “big picture”; this makes her special and a valuable partner in event planning who always has her clients’ best interests in mind." 



"From the beginning, Ali listened carefully and provided options while always respecting our vision for the wedding. She is the rare professional who combines expert knowledge of her business with an engaging, supportive personality. I have every confidence that anyone who has the pleasure of planning an event with her will be thrilled with the outcome."



"Ali was a continually thoughtful, reasonable, creative, and accommodating voice throughout the entire process. In particular, we deeply appreciated her candor and ability to “see the whole field” which helped us make tradeoffs to stay within budget and still maximize our guest experience."



"The day of my wedding was absolutely flawless, as the bride I trusted her completely and felt no need to stress. I knew I could just sit back and enjoy my big day, which is exactly what I did thanks to her! I would highly recommend her for anyone looking to plan any sort of event or wedding."
