We couldn’t have asked for a better person to help us plan the best day of our lives. Our wedding day was more than we could have dreamed of, and we have Ali to thank. We will never forget walking into our reception – the room took our breath away. All of our friends and family were amazed at how much fun we had planning the wedding. She took the stress out of the planning and allowed us to enjoy every step leading up to our big day! There is not enough that can be said about Ali. She is an amazing person and an incredibly talented wedding planner. We feel lucky that we were able to work with her and cannot thank her enough!
I love my job! Daniel Jack and Phil Pessin from the Swissotel invited me and eleven other wedding consultants in to the hotel on May 23rd for a fabulous lunch of sea bass ceviche, buffalo mozarella and tomato salad and kobe beef. The meal was topped off with a fabulous cake by Marked for Dessert.
Hello everyone! I am back from an amazing trip to South Africa and back into the swing of work and will begin blogging about my exciting life as a wedding consultant in Chicago, Illinois. Check back soon for my FIRST post!!!
As soon as my fiancé and I met with Ali, we knew she was the one to coordinate our wedding day! She was so incredibly sweet and listened intently as I told her about the problems that I was facing with planning my dream wedding. She gave us a ton of helpful advice and assured us that she was only a phone call away if I needed ANYTHING. True to her word, I was able to get her help every time I needed it and it was so comforting to know that she was keeping all of my vendors up to speed.
I cannot say enough about how awesome Ali is! I knew that Ali was the one as soon as I met her! The moment I walked out of the meeting with Ali, I cancelled the rest of my appointments with potential coordinators. Even though Steve wasn’t there when I met with Ali, I didn’t even hesitate because I knew he would love her the moment he met her and I was right! I can’t believe she put up with all of my emails, demands and questions everyday for 8 months.
Anthony and I can't begin to thank you enough for the magnificent job you did on our wedding. From the moment we first met, I knew you were the one to make my big day a real fairy tale wedding, and you succeeded. You made life so easy with all the scheduled appointments and made the day flow so smoothly. We LOVE you to death Ali. Thanks for all your hard work. It was absolutely amazing. People keep talking about the entire wedding, and how well thought out it was. And we owe a huge thanks to you! You made our day so real and so special!
Love, Melissa and Anthony Contrucci
There is only one word to describe Ali's professionalism, organization and spirit: perfection! We truly had our dream wedding in every sense of the word and we could not have done it without Ali. She is unbelievably knowledgeable with all the vendors and she coordinated the many pieces of our ceremony and reception so that it all flowed flawlessly. We literally did not have any worries on the wedding day - we knew Ali would take care of everything. I recommend Ali to everyone getting married in the Chicagoland area.
With Ali, I not only got the best coordinator, I also got a friend--that is what makes the difference between good and great. Planning a wedding is like having a second job. There’s no way I could have juggled both without her help!! From the beginning, I was overwhelmed, and had no idea where to begin. My parents live out of state so I didn’t have the luxury of having mom come over and help me on a moment’s notice.
When you're planning a wedding you have a choice.....to be stressed or not to be stressed. I chose not to be. I vowed that I would not let the details and demands of planning overwhelm my fiancé and I. To do that, we decided to hire a wedding planner.
Ali, I can't begin to tell you how much we appreciate everything you did to make Erica and Mike's wedding day perfect. You took care of so many things the day of the rehearsal and the wedding day. I'm sure there are many things Erica and I don't even know about. We could enjoy every minute of their special day. Thanks again!
