Vanessa is an absolute wedding planning genius! The best investment I made for the Big Day was having Vanessa be our Day-of-the-event coordinator. I would describe her as my "Wedding Mom"; She was on top of everything throughout the whole day so that I could actually enjoy my day and not worry about the logistics of it all. She made sure the events were running smoothly and on time, made sure that all of my decorations were set up the way I had asked, ensured everyone was in the right places at the right times. Vanessa went above and beyond what I expected of her, she made sure my husband and I had water and food after we the ceremony and in between our photos, she helped me with my bustle, wrapped my husband's feet in bandaids, she coordinated where our guests were to be, she brought my Mom kleenex, and she coordinated my photographer and videographer and ensured we got everything done on the right timeline. Essentially she was my go-to person on my wedding day; she helped in any and all ways she could see needed help without being asked. I cannot stress enough how grateful I am to have had her helping me on my wedding day! I would hire Vanessa again in a heart beat and will recommend her to all of my friends getting married.

Having Vanessa as our day of coordinator was one of the best things we could have done for our wedding. We knew we wanted a coordinator from the day we started wedding planning. Thinking that it would help keep things on track, so that our parents or close friends wouldn’t have to step in and not enjoy the day. What we didn’t know is how detail oriented, thoughtful and reliable she would be. Vanessa was always two steps ahead of everything. She did things we didn’t even think of. She organized vendors, dealt with problems that arose in a calm way, all the way to the small things like bustling my dress, and grabbing the wedding party drinks for photos. She made our day very memorable and helped us really be able to enjoy it. Even guests commented on how hard she was working, and we had multiple people second guessing not having a day of coordinator for their wedding. If you are on the fence about hiring a day of coordinator, or Vanessa as your coordinator, I would highly recommend doing it. You will not be disappointed!

Being a Type A personality, I knew everything I wanted and had everything ready to go for our wedding on June 6, 2020...until the pandemic hit and turned this world upside down.Our venue was closed, our priest wasn’t able to marry us, dresses couldn’t arrive on time, the list could go on and on. We had to accept that our dream wedding was no longer going to happen the way we wanted it to.2 weeks before our wedding day, Vanessa swooped in and saved the day. She found an officiant to marry us and the location where we had our ceremony. She planned the decor for the basement where we were able to have dinner with those in our “bubble” and it turned out great!Vanessa did everything she could to make us feel like we were having a “real wedding day”. If it wasn’t for Vanessa we couldn’t tell you what our day would have looked like! Thank you Dio Wedding and Events!

Vanessa is incredible!! We had Vanessa as our wedding coordinator and I am so thankful we did! She was always on top of everything and went above and beyond and also was very patient with me especially when I made several seating chart changes. She thought of all the little things, from setting up our decor, she kept us and our large families organized the day of and she was so thoughtful during the day to bring us drinks and cocktail appetizers while we were getting photos done. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better, and would highly recommend her to everyone!

My husband and I were married in October of 2019, in a clearing in the woods outside of London. Vanessa was our day-of-coordinator, and we couldn’t be more grateful for all of the hard work, dedication, and positive energy she brought with her for our special day.
Vanessa took the time needed to meet with both my husband and myself, prior to the wedding, in order to gain a deep understanding of the vision we held for our perfect day. She protected this vision as if it were her own, and was there - every step of the way - to make sure each little piece came together exactly how we hoped. Vanessa went above and beyond her call of duty, using her seemingly limitless talents, to help me design and create beautiful décor and signs for our romantic, woodland wedding. To be able to focus on the excitement and joy of our marriage, knowing I had Vanessa to trust in and count on as the day unfolded, was such a blessing. When you are working with Vanessa, you truly are working with a friend.
Thank you to Vanessa, and Dio Weddings and Events!
