About The Wedding
A home wedding in Jessica's parents' large, private backyard. The evening began with the wedding ceremony in front of two weeping willows, which had been decorated with string lights and orchid blooms. Guests then enjoyed cocktails poolside, and later moved to the beautifully lit and decorated tent for dinner and dancing.

Comments From The Couple
"We could not have pulled off such an extraordinary wedding without Daria's help! Originally, my parents and I thought that a wedding planner may be overkill - how hard could this be? We couldn't have been more wrong. As we watched the numerous vendors and tasks that had to be coordinated the week of the wedding, we were so happy that we had decided to hire Daria. Without a wedding planner, we would have been unable to relax and enjoy everything we had worked so hard to put together.
Even though we only chose to utilize Daria's services for the week of the wedding, she was always available to answer questions and make recommendations for the months leading up to the wedding. The week of the wedding would have been utter chaos without Daria's help. She took our original vision and brought it to life. She made sure that everything occurred the way I (the bride) expected and hoped that it would. Although I am less traditional than my mother, Daria was able to make suggestions and recommendations that more than satisfied us both.
During the wedding, Daria was making sure that everything was going as planned, but she was always available to answer questions and soothe my worries and concerns. One of my favorite memories of Daria was during our photos after the Ceremony. After smiling for hundreds of photos, I wasn't even sure if I was smiling any more, but Daria was always behind me with water and lip-gloss.
We could have never pulled off this wedding as successfully as we did without Daria's guidance and organization. Whatever the bride and groom want, Daria makes it happen. Thanks to her efforts the wedding went off without a hitch and we have received so many compliments from our guests. Thank you, Daria, for all of your hard work - it truly paid off." ~ Jessica (bride)
