From: Karen - Wedding Date: 10/2009 

I used Laura Nedelcu at VOW Wedding Consulting to provide day-of wedding coordination services for my wedding in NYC on October 10, 2009. I debated whether I should get a day-of coordinator because I consider myself very organized and top of things. However, I decided that it would be a good idea to have some extra help on the day-of in order to provide myself some peace of mind on my wedding day. I think it was definitely one of the best decisions I made -- Laura was absolutely fabulous! Before I selected Laura, I had calls with a handful of day-of coordinators. Laura and I hit it off right away and she was very competitive in terms of her price (she wasn't the cheapest, but she was very affordable relative to others I spoke with and she seemed to be extremely organized which was a huge plus). Before the wedding, Laura was always available via email and phone to bounce ideas off of and ask for suggestions. She was extremely responsive and professional, which I loved. Laura's services also included two in-person consultations, one of which I used for my final meeting with my venue (The Central Park Boathouse) and one for my ceremony rehearsal (Church of St. Ignatius Loyola). It worked out perfectly!

On the day of the wedding, Laura was with me from noon to about 2am (a little after the wedding reception ended). She also had an assistant that helped out for about half the day, which worked out well. Laura was with me and my bridesmaids at the hotel where we were getting ready (she even showed up wearing a top that was the same color as my bridesmaids so she would blend in better with the wedding party -- great touch!). She took pictures on her personal camera of me and my girls while we were getting ready, which was nice because she got some great footage before my photographer showed up. She also uploaded the photos and sent them the day after the wedding, so I had some great pictures to look at before I left for my honeymoon and well before I got my proofs from my photographer. Laura also coordinated all my vendors (she called to confirm each of them the week of the wedding) and she distributed all the tips for me (photographer, videographer, bus transportation, limo transportation, hair, makeup, band, maitre d', etc.). My fiance and I encountered a hiccup when we were scheduled to have photographs taken of our "first meeting", but Laura ended up pulling some strings by talking to the hotel manager and arranged for a great set up for the shoot. This is reflective of how she went above and beyond what is asked for her and how she thinks quickly and figures out how to get things done, which is extremely valuable on such an important day. Laura also helped to coordinate a lot of moving pieces given I had a large bridal party, as well as a number of different locations of events (hotel, various locations for pictures around the city, the church, the Boathouse). Laura helped ensure the day ran seamlessly.

Laura, thank you for helping to make my wedding day absolutely perfect! I cannot recommend Laura enough -- she was an amazing asset to have on my wedding day. Worth every penny!!

Laura was fabulous in every way. She was completely professional, with a calm disposition that makes her perfect for this business. From the beginning she was so thorough, being very communicative and helping to keep me on track. The day of our wedding she was in complete control of everything that was going on. She was on the phone with the photographer and videographer to make sure everyone was on time, and she was taking cabs around the city to make sure the pew bows were set at the church, and the centerpieces were perfect at the reception venue. When we arrived at the reception she was waiting to help us in, the she made sure everything was perfect...making sure that I ate, that I had lipstick on that the DJ knew what was going on, that the AC was turned up, and so on. I would highly recommend Vow.

Dear Laura,    

Vin and I would like to thank you for all your amazing help getting us organized and executing our wedding which, thanks to you, couldn?t have gone better. All our family and friends commented on how well organized the day was, and I know that through the planning and during the day, I couldn?t have done it without you.  Your availability as questions came up during the planning phase was extremely useful, and I particularly appreciated how you went out of your way to touch base with me because even when I thought I had it all together, you brought up things I hadn?t even considered. Having your insights during the planning process helped us be better prepared and ultimately, made our event a bigger success. 

Additionally, you were prompt and organized on the day of the wedding, which proved invaluable to us, our wedding party, and our guests.  In fact, Vin and I even remarked that the only part of the wedding that seemed at all chaotic was when we were leaving the church. I pointed out that was the part you were not there for (you had left to set up the reception, which was beautiful and perfect).  At the reception, there were so many people there to help us and serve us, but Vin and I appreciated knowing that all we had to do was make eye contact with you and we would get whatever we needed, from a drink to a lamb chop to the schedule for the next event in the day. 

You were tactful, firm, organized and efficient, while also being a true joy to work with ? the perfect combination in a wedding coordinator. We would absolutely recommend you to our best friends or perfect strangers and know that you would take care of them the way you did us. You helped make our wedding truly enjoyable, and for that, we cannot thank you enough.  Please let us know if we can do anything else to assist you in your business, and know that we would give a stellar recommendation to anyone who asked. You are amazing, Laura. Thank you.

Regards, 

Jen & Vin 

We were very pleased with our wedding planner, Ms.Laura Nedelcu and would recommend her highly. From the very beginning, when we were first starting to make plans for our wedding, right through our wedding day, Laura was a vitally important person . She showed us where to start, how to get organized and recommended a very varied group of talented vendors that she knew. 

She helped set up interviews with these vendors and helped us choose a beautiful site that fit exactly what we were looking for. On our wedding day, Laura was there every step of the way to make sure everything went smoothly and it did! She even found time for us to go to Central Park and take beautiful pictures after our ceremony and before the reception. We appreciate all her time and effort and professionalism in making our wedding truly special.

Sincerely,
Bride & Groom

I don't know what I would have done without you! You made my wedding so easy to deal with and took all the stress off me. Everything was perfect, hope I did not drive you crazy. Again thank you for everything!

P.S you will never know how much it meant to me running for my grandmother's rosary.
