SHION AND TINA'S WEDDING

February, 2011 in New Orleans

"Our wedding was amazing and much better than either one of could even have imagined! Getting married in New Orleans was really fun for all our guests and very reasonable in terms of price! Everyone had a fantastic time at our wedding and exploring the city before and after our event and the weather in February was perfect! Everyone found our website on Wedding Mapper to be extremely helpful in terms of organizing their weekends with us and on their own and it was so user friendly not only for us but for all our family and friends! We are still getting rave reviews and our wedding was more than a month ago!"

Coordinator:

Another Perfect Affair

New Orleans, LA, USA
504-813-1362

"To say our coordinator was worth every penny of her fee is an understatement because in all honesty she truly went above and beyond every step of the way! She was outstanding throughout the entire planning process as well as on the day of the wedding. Neither one of us are from New Orleans however, we love the city and the people and we greatly wanted all of our wedding guests to have a wonderful experience and we couldn't think of a better location than this amazing city! We interviewed several coordinators within New Orleans and in the end the clear choice for us was definitely "Another Perfect Affair". Andrea was not only professional, she was also very knowledgeable, personable and sweet and we liked her instantly! Also we found her reputation to be stellar - almost all of the venues we were interested in were familiar with Andrea and they all professed she was the best! We obtained her services approximately a year before our event and during that time due to work and personal commitments we were only able to visit New Orleans just once before our wedding and only just one month away from our wedding date! Throughout that entire year she made sure to stay in touch with us via emails and phone calls, she answered all of our questions promptly, gave us various options throughout and was able to keep us on time, relaxed and within budget. By the time we were finally able to visit New Orleans everything was already booked! Within two days she personally drove us to finalize the details with our chosen vendors (florist, baker, photographer) as well as our venues for our rehearsal dinner and wedding and somehow she even found the time to bring us to the courthouse to obtain our marriage license! By the time we left New Orleans we felt relaxed and content knowing that everything was set for our big day! Our wedding was better than we could have ever imagined and we know that this is due in large part because we had Andrea by our side throughout the process! There is not one aspect of our wedding that she did not enhance and when all was said and done we realized she not only gave us the wedding of our dreams she also helped us to start our marriage off in the right direction - happy, excited and not in debt! Our wedding was more than a month ago and our friends and family are still raving about what a great time they had and how beautiful our event was and as for us we truly couldn't be happier! Thank you Andrea for giving us a perfect affair!!!"
