Vanessa was absolutely fantastic to work with. She picked up on our style and preferences from the very beginning and ensured everything went off without a hitch. She had great ideas for items we were deciding between (as well as vendor recommendations!), and thought of all the things we did not. Can't recommend her highly enough!

I can't say enough about how helpful Vanessa was on my daughter's wedding day. Vanessa made it possible for my husband and I, as well as the bride and groom, to completely enjoy the wedding day. Vanessa took care of all the vendor coordination from set-up through each step of the event timeline, and through the last detail of clean-up. She made sure the toasts, dances, cake cutting and all the rest happened when they were supposed to, and was available to trouble shoot when needed. Vanessa met with us early in the planning process and was available for basic questions as we proceeded with planning though she was hired as our "Day Of Coordinator." She developed a highly detailed event timeline for the event which was invaluable. Always calm, cheerful and professional, I couldn't have asked for more.

Vanessa and Little Black Book Events were terrific! In the months leading up to our wedding, Vanessa offered invaluable advice on everything from vendor pricing to decorations to timelines. We had a fairly large wedding (160-180) with events spread over 4 days in two locations in Vermont. Having Vanessa present throughout the weekend to coordinate vendors and problem solve behind the scenes helped eliminate so much stress! We had an outdoor wedding and it rained all day,, but Vanessa stayed calm and worked with our families to ensure we still had a wonderful ceremony.
We planned for months, but once the weekend arrived, there were still hundreds of things to do and not enough time to do them. We started handing off things to Vanessa so we could be present and enjoy our family and friends. Having witnessed her professionalism and experience, we trusted her completely to execute and she did not disappoint. We highly recommend Little Black Book Events for your wedding or other important celebrations.
