"Dear Alison, Lauren and Kevin's wedding was everything we had hoped for. Cheryl and I can't thank you and your staff enough for your organization, kindness and support. You helped to make the wedding experience relaxed, pleasurable and memorable for all the wedding party and guests. I'm sorry that I am running out of unwed daughters; we are starting to get this "wedding/party planning" down to a science. Lauren and Kevin and all their friends loved the wedding. Cheryl and I have had lots of very positive feedback... We will miss working with you - please feel free to use us as a reference. Thanks again! Most sincerely," - Cheryl and Sandy, July 2012 (parents of the bride)

"Alison, Thanks for everything - it sure was a comfort to know you were there to help! And thanks for all the running - what a relief. Best regards," -Julie and Bill, June 2012 (parents of the bride)

"Having Alison be there for our wedding weekend was the best money I spent! Without her I would have not had a clue where to be and when. Not to mention the stress I would have experienced. She was so sweet yet professional. When I would ask her to do something it had already been done! She's definitely on top of her game." - Lauren, May 2012 (via WeddingWire.com)

"My wedding would not have been - period - without Aviva Events. I said once, during the planning process, "I have no idea why people say planning a wedding is so difficult" and then I realized it was because Alison had pretty much done everything for me. If you think having a planner isn't worth it - you're crazy. They get you better prices - the best team - and make sure you don't have to think or worry about anything. Every question I had was answered - every phone call I had to make was already made...I had a stress-free, fun wedding day and the next day everything was at our house or returned where it needed to be. Iwould recommend Aviva Events for any wedding or event you want to be perfect and just have fun at." -Moira, February 2012 (via Yelp.com)

"Alison, Thanks for everything you dod for Ethan and Caitlin in the wedding planning process and on the wedding weekend. Most especially, your vendor suggestions were awesome! ...The timeline was most helpful. Rev. Tussing said the precision was "behind the scenes" and not "military-style" like some weddings. Thanks again!" Deb and John, May 2011 (parents of the bride)

"Alison, Ben and I would like to thank you for making our wedding day the fairy tale event that we had envisioned. You made everything run smoothly the entire weekend so that we were able to enjoy our special day. We will definitely refer you to friends and family looking for a wedding planner... thank you again! Wishing you the best," Ben & Jen, September 2010

"Dear Alison, I wanted to thank you for doing a wonderful job in coordinating our wedding. I can't count how many times over the last year that I've said 'Alison is a Godsend!' You were so helpful, sweet and perhaps most importantly, calm from start to finish! We couldn't have done it without you. Thanks for everything," -Claire & Ryan, August 2010

"Alison, our wedding was just unbelievable. You are a Goddess. We are still on our honeymoon so I can't write you the long email that I want to -- but we have gotten so many comments on how well organized and beautiful it was. It was described as 'royal' and "the most beautiful wedding we have ever been to'! Love," -Veena & Ryan, July 2010

"Alison and her team were great to work with! I was a very hands on bride and probably didn't even use her as best as I could but she did everything I asked and more. She really took over the week before the wedding and let me enjoy the process. She kept my mom and me really calm and I don't know how we would have done it without her! I would definitely recommend them!!" -Olivia & Michael, May 2010

"Alison with Aviva Events was amazing. She was friendly, flexible, honest and gave me excellent advice throughout the entire process (even though she was only booked for the "day of" services). Planning a wedding from out of town was very difficult, and I couldn't have done it without her. She gave me advice for all the vendors I picked, and really cut my workload in half. Plus, having her and her team the day of the wedding made everything run so smoothly! My parents and I did not have to lift a finger. They really took care of everything behind the scenes. I received many compliments from my guests and vendors on her professionalism and attitude. They did all I needed and more, going way above and beyond the call of duty! I highly recommend Aviva Events--this should be the first thing any bride books for her wedding! " -Natalie, August 2008

"I can't thank you enough for all your help!

That makes me SO happy since there were so many last minute issues that we had to overcome. Todd and I are so grateful to you and to Ellie! You made sure that I was calm and appreciated my wedding day regardless of all the other things happening. Thank you so much for making certain that our wedding day was the happiest day of our lives!

Her friendly nature made both my husband and me instantly comfortable. And her professionalism led to immediate trust. I have confidently referred her to many friends. Alison went above and beyond her duties more than once during our weekend. Fortunately she was there to quell any issues before we were ever aware of them.
