“I could not recommend Hanna enough. I am a teacher who is fairly type A and OCD. Letting go of control on my wedding day was not necessarily something I was ready to do, but after having Hanna as my day off coordinator I would do it again in a heartbeat. I couldn’t even tell you if there were things that she had to fix because I was kept in a blissful bubble the entire day. She was beyond amazing and working with her was so natural. I can confidently say our wedding went as well as it did because Hanna was there executing it all. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts!!”
