Abbi + Daniel
My now husband Daniel and I ended up having a fairly short engagement (well under 6 months) as we were ready to get the show on the road after having waited so long to find one another. He proposed in July and we set the date for November so, needless to say, there was not a lot of time to plan the wedding at all, which meant I really had to trust my instincts when it came to booking the venue, our vendors and all other logistics.
I came across Bonnie after conducting a great deal of online research and was instantly drawn in by the overall aesthetic of her website and the excellent reviews that I read on both her website as well as Yelp. She just seemed like she would get us. So, without hesitation, I contacted Bonnie right away and she got back to me within hours. We set up a coffee date a few weeks later and instantly clicked, as I had a feeling we would. During our conversation, we talked about life in New York and life in general and it felt like I was hanging out with an old friend. Bonnie listened patiently while I described the vision that Daniel and I had for our ceremony (short and sweet!) and Bonnie not only got it, she made our vision come alive beautifully. It truly was perfectly us.
After our initial meeting, Bonnie came to our apartment in Brooklyn to get to know us better, learn more about the story of how we met, and discuss in more detail what we wanted for our ceremony. Bonnie asked relevant and thought-provoking questions and took notes as she listened to Daniel and I define and describe our overall vision. We weren't entirely sure about what we wanted prior to discussing it all with Bonnie and she really stepped in and helped us flesh it all out. I can't tell you how much this helped to allay our nervous jitters and put us at ease. A week or two after our meeting, Bonnie sent us the most beautiful ceremony text in which she perfectly captured our story and our love for each other.
The ceremony was short and sweet which was exactly what we wanted but it was also incredibly moving. In fact, our friends and family complimented Bonnie all night long and kept coming up to us and asking "how did you find her?!" All I can say is I'm so very glad we did because I can't imagine our wedding any other way. Bonnie was an absolutely pleasure and joy to work with and we recommend her so highly.
