About The Wedding
Haley and Carlo had a morning church wedding followed by a brunch at the rooftop venue Ventanas, overlooking downtown Atlanta.
My Favorite Moment
Carlo is musically inclined, and had been wanting a piano, so Haley surprised him by presenting one to him as his wedding gift right before their first dance. The twist? The reception musician actually played this piano during the reception. Carlo loved it, and after a special request from his boss, he played a traditional Filipino piece for the guests.

Comments From The Couple
Daria is absolutely amazing! I was initially not going to hire a wedding coordinator, because they are pretty expensive but my mom and friends basically all live out of town so I was doing everything by myself.
Daria stood out because she is super organized yet really kind. My husband came with me to the interview for her and saw how together she was and was really impressed, and once she started asking us questions that we did not know the answers to, he was convinced.
I had quite a few complications with my reception venue, the church and even my hair people at one point. I would call Daria and she took care of EVERYTHING!!! I would leave messages where I was panicking about my venue and within the hour things were taken care of. Even things that were not part of her "job description" I would call her about and she was totally there to listen and support. She certainly lives up to the standard that you, the client, think you are the only one she is dealing with. I have no idea how she does it, but she is amazing.
I totally recommend Daria, without her, my wedding would have been a diaster - I had picked great flowers and a beautiful venue and great food, but all that money spent without someone to make it all work and come together would have been a complete waste if Daria had not helped us plan and coordinate everything. She is amazing! ~ Haley (bride)
