  • Olivia (owner of Precise Events) was so crucial in planning our wedding. She took my visions of how I wanted things to be and took it to the next level. My breath was taken away when I saw the ceremony decorations and the reception. She made it all happen.
  • Use the checklist! She provided one and I also used another checklist. Also create a budget and stick to it.
  • When I was really stressed out about the little things or even the big things, she talked me down and offered any help that she could. She reminded me that this day was about us, not about anything else, and that it would all be ok and she would make sure of that. She was an ear to listen to my ranting and a sounding board for ideas.
  • At first I didn't think I needed a planner and that I could do it all by myself. I was so wrong. If I didn't have Olivia helping me I don't think we would have had a wedding or at least not as nice as the one we did have. Olivia helped me with the ENTIRE wedding from the very beginning all the way through to the end. If it's in your budget, I would highly recommend Precise Events!

  • How did wedding planner make your day special? Olivia (owner of Precise Events) really got one over on me. One of my aunts was not able to come to the wedding, as far as I knew. But Olivia secretly worked with my bridal party and some close family members to get my aunt here for the big day. I was so excited and surprised and just happy. I think that I also really like how honest Olivia was about our ideas (mostly mine!) She could define the pros and cons of each idea allowing us to have informed decisions. Some of the tough stuff, she was really able to put together flawlessly.
  • Useful suggestions, tips, wisdom your planner offered? I was really getting pressure to have a religious aspect in my wedding. My husband and I really were not religious but our parents were. We felt strongly about not being something that we weren’t during this special day. Our parents continued to pressure us until we added a few scriptures and a prayer to our ceremony. I just never liked the idea and Olivia could tell. She helped me to really put things into perspective with respect to my parents. I took her advice and sat down to have a conversation with my parents and the in-laws face to face about our feelings. It worked like a charm and in the end, our wedding was truly our own.
  • How the planner reduced your inner-Bridezilla? Olivia is one of the nicest people you could meet. She is sweet and also really in tuned to people’s emotions. I respect her ability to stay calm in every situation. But, she has a way about her. Even at my most stressed, I was able to get back into focus with emails or calls to her. One of the things that helped is that she was always around. If I am emailing at 10pm, she is answering me back in minutes. She took notes, and kept records of important ideas that we had. She was just really organized, to the point that I could really relax.
  • Value of a wedding planner? A wedding planner is a valuable asset to those who can find a good one. If you are like me, my husband, wanted some input, but after a few conversations, he would tune out or just say “whatever you want”. I needed someone who I could talk shop with 24/7, to bounce ideas off of, and to trust that they would tell me “oh no” or “that idea is awesome, here is how we can make the impossible possible”. A wedding planner is like a sidekick, there for you until the end and beyond. When I say “the right one” I mean, Precise Events! Thank you for such a great job – above and beyond.

  • How did wedding planner make your day special? This is a tough question to answer. Olivia was our planner. My whole day was entirely perfect. I don’t remember one bad thing. I just floated along throughout the day, happy and excited. I can say that a special item that Olivia negotiated for my husband and I was a breakfast speed in our hotel rooms before the wedding with a cute note saying her motto… “don’t forget to eat and hydrate”. She worked directly with my husband to surprise me with a wedding gift of a massage before the wedding too. I was truly queen for a day.
  • Useful suggestions, tips, wisdom your planner offered? Funny that I was considering planning the wedding with my mother. A friend suggested Precise Events, the price was reasonable and I decided it would be easier for everyone involved to have someone keeping a centralized idea of what was going on. Olivia was present for many of my vendor meetings. She gave me info on how to prepare for the meetings and also ask questions that we did not think to ask about, but so many of the details ended up being so important. One of her mantras was “don’t forget to eat,” I’ve been to wedding when a bride passed out because she forgot to take care of herself. Not me. I was relaxed and happy the entire day. I enjoyed the meal we choose and still got to dance. I think one of my favorite ideas that she came up with was an alternative to a guest book (so overdone). Instead, we did a Polaroid photo album where we took instant pictures of our guests, and they wrote captions and comments and well wishes right under their picture.
  • How the planner reduced your inner-Bridezilla? Before I would see a problem, she was already fixing it. The staff at the country club commented to me that she really fought for the special things that I wanted. I knew, going with a planner, that I would not be AS stressed out. But seriously, I enjoyed myself and my husband. None of my bridesmaids blasted me on FB so I think that I avoided the Bridezilla all together.
  • Value of a wedding planner? I did pay for full planning which was about 60% more than the day of coordination, BUT it was totally worth it. Olivia and her staff responded to my communications very quickly. She did what she said she would do when she said she would do it. (in other words, very reliable) she gave me great advice. She never made me feel like I was asking a stupid question. (something that one of the other planners I interviewed did) I felt pampered and I truly got the sense that she loves her job. I have already recommended Precise Events to my sister who is getting married next year. I am pretty sure that she has booked her.
