My maitre’d was kind of a dud and he obviously wasn’t available to me until my actual wedding day. Kim was exactly what I needed for the month leading up to my wedding. She kept me organized, did countless tasks for me that I didn’t have time to do myself, kept her cool when I freaked out, and listened to me complain about people and situations that were driving me crazy. She was like a therapist/friend/wedding planner all in one! She anticipated my needs, made every necessary phone call and email for me, was the liaison for me and my vendors, and even took a serious verbal beating from my florist on the day of my wedding (he was such a jerk, Morningside Greenhouse, don’t use him). To top it all off, her grandmother passed away a few days before my wedding, and even though she was emotional and sad, she still put on a happy face for me and did everything I needed her to do. She was a true professional. Kim, I can’t thank you enough for the amount of stress you alleviated for me! Well worth the money.
