See what our Besties are Saying!


I came across Vanessa’s Bridal Bestie service at a time when my fiance and I were wavering back and forth about the prospect of hiring a month of coordinator for our wedding. Vanessa is not a traditional wedding planner/coordinator: she’s your Bridal Bestie and she turned out to be exactly what we wanted and needed!

Vanessa Is The Perfect Balance Of Friendly, Practical, Professional And Creative, With A Killer Eye For Design.


Vanessa is the perfect balance of friendly, practical, professional and creative, with a killer eye for design. She took the time to understand the type of wedding we wanted to throw and was able to meet us there instead of trying to push us to do things that weren’t right for us. She helped us navigate the world of DIY projects (determining which ones are worth doing and which ones really aren’t) and helped us find projects for the wedding that fit the theme. On the day of we hired her to set up and take down the ceremony and reception site and she was amazing. Everything was styled perfectly and family heirlooms were handled with care. Vanessa is the best bestie I could have asked for to help us plan our wedding! - Sarah C


One of the relatively early decisions I made when starting to plan our wedding was to hire Vanessa as my Bridal Bestie.  I found her shop online, while searching for a wedding dress that a. I loved and b. was in my small price range.  Cue Vanessa, who showed up at our house with an armful of dresses in my size.  I kicked my then-fiancee out of the house and Vanessa and I hung out for a couple of hours, trying on dresses and laughing.  I instantly felt like we were old friends.  Soon after buying a vintage dress from her, I reached out to her about being my wedding coordinator and began the rad journey of working with her as my Bridal Bestie.

She was a phenomenal sounding-board as I navigated wedding planning without much other help, and I knew I could bounce every idea off of her and get honest, thoughtful feedback.

Vanessa is so many things.  An amazing creative.  An excellent event planner.  A rock-solid support system.  A fantastic friend.  She found the perfect tailor to alter my wedding dress and the too-long, too-big-in-the-waist white jumpsuit I had found for the rehearsal, and went with me to my appointments.  She found the perfect hair stylist to fit my aesthetic and budget.  She was a phenomenal sounding-board as I navigated wedding planning without much other help, and I knew I could bounce every idea off of her and get honest, thoughtful feedback.  She helped me finesse the timeline of the day to ensure that everything would go smoothly.  She walked through our venue with me and together we created my absolute DREAM decor plan.  She and her lovely husband were there to make sure the rehearsal went off without a hitch, and were at the venue early on the morning of the wedding to hang the decor and make sure everything was set up perfectly.  I felt completely at ease getting ready with my bridesmaids across town, because I knew Vanessa was in charge.  She made the venue- where we held the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception- look absolutely stunning, and lead a small team comprised of some family members and close friends to get everything ready.  She was behind the scenes at the ceremony, making sure that everything happened at the right time, everyone walked at the right time and in the right order.  She was genuinely so joyful on our wedding day, and I could see how much she had poured her heart into everything she did for us!

I honestly could not have had my dream wedding without Vanessa!  Her many, many talents and her awesome personality made her the perfect Bridal Bestie for me.  If you are thinking of hiring a wedding coordinator- which, uh, you should- HIRE HER.  Please.  She will light up your life and make the planning process so much fun.  Can't thank you enough, V! -Madeleine J
