R & T

This past August my husband and I got married and Vanessa of Vanessa West Events was our day of wedding coordinator, and she was INCREDIBLE!!!

She and her assistant were the soul reason our day ran so smoothly! Our wedding was an outdoor ceremony and tented reception on my parents property, so there was soooo much to organize and do the day of. I was stressed that my family would end up having to run around finishing up all of the last minute details instead of enjoying the day, but Vanessa and her assistant did it all! They were so calm and organized and simply amazing!

Although she was our "day of" coordinator she went above and beyond to ensure that all of our plans were coming together months before the wedding date. She met with us, had multiple phone meetings and even came the day before the wedding to help us set up!!!!

All in all hiring Vanessa West Events as our day of coordinator was one of the best decisions my husband and I may have ever made! We highly recommend her!

T & M

We hired Vanessa as our day-of coordinator for our September wedding, and she did a fantastic job! I am a bit of a control freak, but working with Vanessa for the month prior to the wedding was great. Communication was excellent; she made sure she got all of the details for the day itself, and by our last meeting I felt she knew exactly what to do. I had no hesitation letting her (and Emily) run the show on the wedding day!

She was also genuinely excited for our wedding, which was so sweet. So often people who work in the wedding industry have seen so many weddings, they just don't get as excited as you are. Vanessa was always interested in discussing the little details, and was really looking forward to the day!

Vanessa and Emily were at the ceremony venue early to coordinate with the officiant, the musicians, and the groom while I got ready, and then they split up and Emily went to the reception venue to handle deliveries. Once the ceremony was underway, Vanessa went to the reception venue to make sure everything was perfect for guest arrival. They worked so well with the reception venue staff, I didn't have to worry about a thing! I would absolutely recommend Vanessa West Events to anyone looking for a great planner.

We had Vanessa West Events for day-of wedding coordination for our wedding in September 2016. Vanessa and her assistant Emily made our day PERFECT!! Everything ran so smoothly and it allowed my husband and I to relax and enjoy every moment of our special day. They made sure that every last detail was covered and were so thoughtful and caring during our planning meetings and on the day of our wedding. We couldn't have done it without their help and we will forever be thankful!

Vanessa and Emily were both amazing to work with for our wedding on September 23, 2017! Throughout the planning process, Vanessa was very organized and responsive to our ideas, and was very supportive and present to answer any questions we had or provide suggestions. Having both Vanessa and Emily there on our wedding day made everything flow smoothly, and we were able to enjoy the day as much as we did because of them! Thank you both!


E & C 

Vanessa and Emily made sure the execution of our day was flawless! It would have been impossible for me to be in three places at once, having them gave us peace of mind that everything would work out perfectly. The sign of amazing planners is they are quick, efficient and work without you knowing they are there. These two did everything with such professionalism and efficiency our families are still talking about how great they were months later! 



Thank you for planning such a great party, Vanessa! I especially loved being able to trust in your abilities to pull together the ideas we brainstormed. The whole day was magical and you looked after every single detail. Your passion for what you do and keen attention to detail was apparent in every aspect of our event. I can't thank you enough enough!



Thanks for making our Seasonal Party a great success. Everything was well organized, right from the original venue selection process through to the final evenings events, the entire organization had a great time. We appreciate all the efforts you made to ensure our event went perfectly.
