About The Wedding
My husband is friends with Mark, and as long as he has know him, Mark has always said that when he got married, it would be at the Aquarium. And they did! This was a spectacular affair that turned out just as Lauren and Mark wanted - after a year of intensive planning, the day was perfect. The palette of white flowers and Tiffany blue accents worked beautifully in the Oceans ballroom.
My Favorite Detail
Lauren chose save-the-date cards with penguins on them (because of the Aquarium), and later she found the cutest cake topper I have ever seen: a pair of penguins dressed as a bride and groom. How did we survive without etsy.com?
My Favorite Moment
This was a rare time when my husband and I were guests at the wedding (in addition to me working), and I actually was able to sit with him for the ceremony. Rabbi Lebow made it such a fun, personal ceremony for Lauren and Mark. It reminded me once again of why I love weddings so much - being a part of a couple's celebration of their love and the symbolic beginning of their journey together.

Comments From The Couple
"We couldn't have had such a perfect wedding without Daria there for us every step of the way. I knew she was great when we first met her, but my confidence in her grew so much more when we met with vendors and they had heard about how fantastic she was as a planner. She has a great reputation of being very organized and professional.
My husband and I are both very busy with our work schedules and what I liked most about Daria was how flexible she was. She was ALWAYS available via phone. She planned meetings around our schedule. She kept us on task with to-do lists, reminders and constant updates.
Our wedding day went very smoothly because we had such a great planner. She was always one step ahead and I can honestly say that I never worried about anything. I just went with the flow and knew that she would handle the entire night. She had planned everything out so well.
I recommend Daria to any bride out there who needs guidance planning her wedding and most importantly - peace of mind - on your wedding day!" ~ Lauren (bride)
