I reached out to DreamGroup after following them on Instagram and I was put in touch with Alexa Gayton. There’s a lot of wedding planners out there and it’s hard to make a choice but I am so glad we met Alexa and went with DreamGroup.  Alexa was very helpful even on the initial consultation call and she was so calm and easy to talk to it was really an easy choice. We didn’t know exactly what a wedding day coordinator would do but we know we needed help. In the end both my husband and I would honestly say that it was the best decision to hire Alexa. She was able to think of all the little things to take the stress away from us on the weeks and days leading up to the event and of course the day of the wedding. There are a lot of little things you don’t think about and it was nice to be able to lean on Alexa rather than asking our family and friends for help. Alexa was so calm, she helped us deal with all the moving parts and made sure everything ran smoothly. She had a way of making us feel calm and relaxed. We were able to enjoy the wedding and the days leading up to it because of Alexa. The wedding was a huge success, in part because of how smoothly Alexa was able to run things. We will definitely be recommending Alexa to anyone we know getting married in the future.

We worked with Alexa for our big day and she could not have been a more perfect planner for us! She was so helpful and was always ready and willing to help answer any questions we had leading up to the wedding to ensure that we were on the right track.

On the day of the wedding, Alexa and her assistant were BEYOND incredible. They truly went above and beyond to make sure I was not stressed out and took care of everything, including taking care of my two dogs!!! I couldn’t recommend Alexa enough to any future bride and groom out there!

Hiring Alexa at DreamGroup was the best thing we could have done for our wedding! Alexa is professional, but also has a funny and sweet personality that makes her so easy to get along with. She was a welcome presence at our rehearsal dinner and wedding for this very reason!

Alexa is so easy to communicate with from beginning to end, and she was also able to take complete control on the wedding day to make everything run seamlessly. One of the biggest priorities of our wedding was to make sure that both we and our guests did not feel like we were working, and Alexa made sure that we achieved that and more. She did so much work behind the scenes to make feel pampered on the day. She made sure all VIP guests were fed before and during the wedding, ensured that we were on time in the limo and shuttle, and kept the timeline of the day running smoothly. Alexa wasn’t hired to decorate the event, but went above and beyond with setting up our personal belongings – the set up looked better than I could have ever imagined.

There were a few mini emergencies on our day (venue front door locked when we were supposed to arrive! Difficulties corralling guests!), but Alexa handled them easily. She is someone to depend on for sure.

All of our other vendors loved working with Alexa. We also had guests taking Alexa’s business card at our wedding because they plan to hire her for their events! I would love to see her at a future event, and if we need any events planned in the future, Alexa will be the first person I reach out to. I highly recommend hiring a month-of coordinator if you plan to get married, and if you can, you should definitely work with Alexa.

Alexa was one of the best decisions my husband and I made for our wedding! After having our first meeting with her we instantly knew we wanted her to be a part of our wedding! Throughout our wedding planning, Alexa was extremely organized, positive, professional, and a pleasure to work with! She was on top of everything, and provided us with so many helpful ideas on details we wouldn’t have even considered. She was quick to answer any questions and provided us with constant support and reassurance.

The weeks leading up to our wedding, my family couldn’t believe how stress free we were and we can honestly say this was because of Alexa. She kept in contact with our vendors, created a detailed schedule and was enthusiastically involved with everything. She put so much hard work into making our wedding the best it could be that we knew our wedding was in great hands. This was important because it allowed us to be able to relax and enjoy our wedding with our friends and family.

The day of, Alexa and her assistant did an incredible job setting up our décor, ensuring the day ran smoothly, and with making sure our day was extra special. Alexa checked in with us throughout the day and even loaded all of our gifts and décorinto our parent’s vehicles. We were told countless times by our loved ones how amazing Alexa was!

We couldn’t have been happier with our experience. Alexa went above and beyond our expectations and we don’t know what we would have done without her! We highly recommend DreamGroup, especially Alexa!

We were initially hesitant about hiring a planner, but we are so glad we chose Alexa—she was truly amazing! From our first meeting to the last, she was consistently professional and attentive. She answered all of our questions and always followed up with answers.

In the final week of preparation before the big day, I didn’t have to do much because Alexa took care of the majority of things and had everything under control. I put all my trust in her on the day and let her work her magic. I especially appreciated her detailed, color-coded timeline of the wedding day. Love it!

We encountered a small hiccup due to some of our guests, but Alexa and Marimee handled it seamlessly, which I really appreciated. I can’t thank them enough! I will definitely recommend Alexa to others!

Choosing Alexa as our day of coordinator was undoubtedly one of the best decisions we made during our wedding preparations. From the onset, her communication skills were impeccable, always ensuring that we were on the same page every step of the way.

We placed our full trust in Alexa, and she didn’t let us down. Her attention to detail, coupled with her undeniable passion for the job, shone through in every aspect of the planning. It’s evident that she doesn’t see this as just a job, but rather a vocation to make couples’ dream days come true.

On the day itself, everything went off without a hitch. It’s the kind of seamless execution you hope for but don’t always expect. Given the multitude of elements that go into planning a wedding, ensuring it unfolds flawlessly is no easy feat, yet Alexa managed it with grace.

For anyone on the fence about whether or not to invest in a day-of coordinator, let our experience be testament to its worth. We wholeheartedly recommend Alexa to any couple looking for peace of mind on their big day. Her professionalism, dedication, and flair for coordination will undoubtedly turn your wedding vision into a cherished reality.

We worked with Alexa for the coordination of our wedding, and I really can’t recommend her enough! From our first meeting, she just has this calming, organized presence about her, and was so helpful with all the (many!) questions that we had.

Our meetings with her prior to the wedding were so productive and they really helped ease our stress – we just know that whatever we asked her, she had it covered! There were so many logistical things that we were worried about, but each of them Alexa had suggestions for, and really went above and beyond to help us out.

On the wedding day, it was so great to be able to be fully in the moment, knowing that Alexa and her assistant Marimee had everything covered. Having Alexa help us with our wedding was honestly one of the best decisions we made for our big day 🙂

We were fortunate to work with Alexa as our planner and could not have been more thrilled, impressed, and amazed at how perfect our day was! We chose the “Wedding Day Essentials” package which included meetings leading up to the big day, organizational documents, rehearsal assistance, and coordination of vendors, setup, and timeline on the day of. This service is truly unmatched and I cannot imagine our wedding without Alexa’s support. She is such a kind, calm, organized planner, and her presence at our wedding was such a gift.

Alex Reiter

 

Alexa made our wedding feel seamless, which made for a worry-free wedding. She is extremely good at her job, easy going, and great to work with. We hired her for the day of coordination and would hire her for any future event that may come our way.

The organization also has an amazing questionnaire; after we finished filling it out, it was very clear to us what tasks we had forgotten and what we still needed to take care of.

Cheers,

Chris Whitehead

 

We worked with Alexa to help co-ordinate the details of our wedding and we were so pleased with our experience with her! We hired Alexa as our day-of-coordinator but she was definitely involved and assisting us in making decisions well before our actual wedding day. Alexa is professional, kind, courteous, efficient and thoughtful in her duties as a wedding coordinator. I would highly recommend her to any couples needing assistance in planning their big day.
