Philosophy

We provide a streamlined approach to event planning so that our couples don’t have to stress over the details and can trust the rockstar vendors they hire.

TESTIMONIALS

These are a few comments I have received from clients over the years.

 
 

WEDDING JUNE 2019

Ginna is the best coordinator I could ever dream of and I highly recommend her. She was extremely knowledgeable and gave such great advice. It was the best decision we ever made to have Ginna apart of our special day. She made our wedding day run so smoothly by making sure everything was followed through with exactly what we had envisioned for our ideal wedding even though it was raining. Ginna was always easy to talk to and was so prepared. She was always there for us throughout the whole wedding planning process, making sure we were prepared for each step of the way. Even when our caters mixed up the date, she handled it with such grace that we didn't even notice. I really appreciate all that she did for the wedding, and she did an outstanding job.

WEDDING MAY 2019

Ginna Matson did a fantastic job as the coordinator for my daughter’s wedding. My daughter and her fiancé had done the overall planning for their wedding and had arranged for several components of the event before deciding to hire a wedding coordinator (the venue, caterer and music had been arranged) but tons of details remained to be addressed (e.g., flowers, scheduling of the many events over the rehearsal and wedding days). Ginna officially came on board six weeks before the wedding date, although she was available well before then to consult about things that needed to be arranged (e.g., transportation, port-a-potties for the outdoor wedding and reception). When she officially “came on board,” she took over all the details while being sure to stay accessible to my daughter and her fiancé.

There were lots of moving parts to the big event, especially because of the outdoor venue at a private farm. Ginna has good relations with the many businesses that were involved in putting together the event: the caterers, the suppliers of linens, bartenders, rental business. She is detail-oriented and knows what details need to be considered, which saved us a lot of worry and time. I am an organizer and have a tendency to micro-manage, so I had moments when I was concerned by how little I was involved in making arrangements as we approached the wedding day. I had no reason to worry: Ginna – in consultation with the bride and groom – had it all under control. Not only was everything flawlessly organized, she took care of the flower arrangements and table decorations herself and threw in an upgrade of the original proposal!

The wedding and reception went as smoothly as it could possibly have gone. There were virtually no glitches – at least, none that made it to our attention (and that’s the key!). The very few last-minute adjustments were handled immediately by Ginna. For example, we decided at the rehearsal that we really needed fans in the barn for the reception and Ginna arranged to pick them up herself the next morning. The only other example was that the bus transporting our guests from the hotel had a minor accident at the entrance to the farm that caused damage to the wall at the entrance; Ginna called the company the Monday after the wedding and arranged for the company to take care of the repairs.

The bottom-line: Our guests had a great time; the parents of the bride were able to enjoy the day rather than worry about whether things were going as expected; and the bride and groom had the day that they dreamed of having. It was a huge success, thanks to Ginna’s hard work. Ginna is knowledgeable, well-organized, well-connected, thorough, calm and easy to work with. We enthusiastically recommend her.

I don’t have enough nice things to say about Ginna and the rest of her team! She made the planning process so simple and streamlined and went above and beyond to take everything off of our plate on our big day. She was by far the best money we have spent towards our wedding! Our wedding day went off without a hitch and it was all thanks to her! We got so many compliments from friends and family about how wonderful she was also. Cannot recommend them enough!!
