During the planning stage she was so generous with her time to meet, text or jump on a phone call.  Ali was so knowledgeable and professional, she guided and assisted us in our choices for all the events of the wedding weekend, the Welcome Party, the Wedding Ceremony, Wedding Reception and also the Farewell Brunch. Her ideas were impeccable. 

Six weeks from the event Ali took over all communications with our vendors which was a huge relief for us. On the day of the wedding she worked tirelessly to ensure that every detail was executed flawlessly just as the bride and groom had envisioned. Thanks to Ali and her assistants, we had the most perfect, stress free day possible, our guests had an amazing time and we were showered with compliments. 

I highly recommend Alexandra Denniston and Eventlightenment Planning for assisting with planning your perfect wedding day or event.

"When we met Ali we truly began to relax and enjoy the planning as she has the knowledge, experience, ingenuity, calm demeanor and professionalism to make every situation enjoyable."

From the beginning, she listened carefully and provided options while always respecting our vision for the wedding. Most impressively, she had an answer for everything. From the best vendors, to accommodations, menus and timetables, Ali worked through every detail with us. She spent extra time exploring rehearsal dinner venues, the ceremony location and how best to handle guests with special circumstances. We benefited from the excellent relationships she has established with Rental companies, musical production companies, videographers and transportation companies.
She truly could point us in the best direction at every turn. Her constant follow up and attention to detail ensured that everything was under control. Even while managing other events, Ali was always responsive and happy to talk. She was thorough, honest and reassuring.
The best planning can still be thrown a curve on the wedding day. As a very nervous mother of the bride, I’m not sure I would have made it without Ali. Of course everything was wonderful, but I only relaxed because of her confidence, her command of every aspect of the day and her ability to be everywhere at once. Any question was answered. Any need was addressed. Most importantly the bride and groom as well as our guests had the most amazing time.
Alexandra is the rare professional who combines expert knowledge of her business with an engaging, supportive personality. We looked forward to meeting with her and knew that we were receiving the best assistance. She enjoys her work and the people she works with. I have every confidence that anyone who has the pleasure of planning an event with her will be thrilled with the outcome.

"Ali made our wedding planning experience completely stress-free." 

She was extremely organized, paid great attention to detail and was always very quick to respond to my emails (which were constant!). She always had great recommendations along the way that were very helpful. The day of the 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/wedding.

"You made the bride’s dream day a reality."

I want to tell you this has been a year of weddings for us. We will soon attend the fourth wedding since we worked with you and none of the venues, staff, or cuisine can compare with Kevin and Lakie’s wedding. Anne and I remain forever grateful to you and your team for that wonderful day. You made the bride’s dream day a reality. The more I see of what is out there the better I appreciate the value and wisdom of our decision to work with you.
