“Vanessa and Caroline came highly recommended by one of the venues we looked at. After speaking with several planners we ended up hiring Vanessa and Caroline for our wedding in France. Looking back, our wedding was a big success and Vanessa and Caroline played a very large part in that success. Our entire interaction during the weeks leading up to the wedding was productive and pleasant, they are a lot more responsive than most other planners we spoke with. They did a great job coordinating the dozen vendors that were hired for the day, they established a very detailed timeline with all the vendors and executed on this timeline flawlessly. We had a lot of things planned and to be honest, we did not have to worry about a single thing that day and were able to truly enjoy our wedding. To give an tangible example, we asked the team to have fireworks start at the exact moment we were cutting the wedding outdoors and that moment required coordinating with some many vendors, caterer, music, lighting, fireworks operator.. To this day, I still see it as a miracle they were able to make this happen timed with an amazing precision. We highly recommend Vanessa and Caroline, they are outstanding professionals and you will be in good hands!”
“ABSOLUTE PERFECTION in every way. There is something to be said when EVERY guest at your wedding comes up to you to say “This was by far the BEST wedding I have ever attended!” I thought the same, though assumed that was just me being biased. That would have never been the case without Vanessa and Caroline! I knew after Vanessa’s willingness to come to my house on a Saturday afternoon to meet my Fiancé and I that she was willing to go above and beyond for us to make our wedding special. We decided to have our wedding over a weekend at a chateau outside of Paris. Every meeting… every tasting… every question… Vanessa was there, even at 11pm on a Sunday night. She helped me find the most amazing florist, sign and arch designers, dress alterations, videographers, quartet, cake (oh that cake!!!!) to name a few. And was always there to help me translate from french to english. On the big weekend Vanessa and Caroline executed everything to impeccable perfection! They understood my vision, what little weird things I wanted displayed or what songs I wanted played and when. Every last minute detail was flawlessly done you would think they could do it in their sleep. They kept the flow of the whole wedding going and not until well after that last firework did they slow down. I am one of those brides that would never want to redo my wedding, because it was beyond perfect in every way to the point where it would be impossible to recreate. Vanessa and Caroline- Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I will never forget how amazing you both are in making my dream wedding come true and beyond!”
“Planning a wedding when you don’t live in the country can be very stressful, I was lucky enough to find Vanessa and Caroline and she was so helpful and patient with me. I was very particular about every detail I wanted and Vanessa and Caroline were able to help us create the most memorable day for us. If you are looking for people who are reliable, honest and truly love what they do then Vanessa and Caroline are the right wedding planners for you.”
“Vanessa was always very available and helped us a lot on the choice of the details. On the wedding day, they set up the decoration in the church and in the venue, and they manage the arrival, the setting up and the interventions of all the vendors and of the guests. They also helped fix a problem with one of the vendors and made sure that everything went smoothly. They were more than helpful concerning the timing of the evening, reminding us the time for the throw of the bouquet and for the dinner. They were very receptive and very efficient. Thanks to them, we did not have to worry about any planning details or logistics and we really enjoyed our wedding, just as we wished.”
“Our elopement in Paris was made a success because of Vanessa’s hard work and dedication to her craft. She answered emails promptly and gave us several beautiful vendor options for every aspect of our day. She acted as a liaison between us and a few of our French-speaking vendors and made the day run so smoothly. We had such an unforgettable wedding day in Paris, and it is all thanks to Vanessa!”
“Vanessa was our wedding coordinator at the historical Chateau Bourron, Fontainebleau. Although we didn’t think we needed one, we are very happy we changed our minds and hired her. Vanessa is an amazing wedding planner. She was very easy to work with because she is very responsive and organized. Vanessa paid attention to the details and helped us with the logistics and schedule. She took her time to come to the chateau a day before the wedding, so we could do a rehearsal with the bridesmaids and ushers.
We would like to thank Vanessa and Caroline for everything that they have done to make the wedding so wonderful. “
“My husband and I always knew that we wanted a destination wedding in Paris, and from the moment that we met Vanessa, we knew that she would be the one to turn that dream into a reality. We flew to Paris and met with her about a year prior to our wedding, and she was in constant communication with us for the whole year leading up to our date. I miss my weekly planning calls with her! She was prompt to respond to emails and always presented us with unbiased options for vendors. The suggestions she provided were perfect and we were extremely happy with everything that she helped select. She planned our entire wedding weekend, including a welcome boat cruise along the Seine, our wedding celebration, and a brunch the next morning. Every detail was extremely organized and well thought out. On the day of our wedding, Vanessa and Caroline catered to every need that we had. They made it a point to lessen our stress and calm our nerves. Our guests could not stop commenting on how friendly and discreet they both were. My stepmother is still raving about Vanessa two months later! Planning a destination wedding, especially one so far away, could have been extremely stressful and difficult to pull off, but Vanessa and Caroline made that possible. Our wedding weekend was absolute perfection and we owe a lot of that to them. Merci beaucoup ladies! xoxo”

“Vanessa made our dreams into a reality from the moment we first exchanged emails. My husband and I were debating whether to host our wedding at home in California, or in Paris. We loved the idea of Paris but it felt like an impossible feat to plan such an event from almost 6,000 miles away. Our experience with a wedding planner here in the US was not very positive so when we inquired with Vanessa and heard back right away, it was a breath of fresh air. We must have exchanged at least 10 emails that day. When I told her of our budget and she sent an estimate that very first day, we were sold. It was because of her attentiveness and vision that we felt confident enough to make the decision to begin planning our dream wedding abroad! Vanessa made everything so easy. Not only is she amazing, but she works with amazing vendors too – we truly felt like we had the pick of the most VIP Parisian bakers, photographers, florists, etc. Our only job was to skim through the options she sent us and decide which one we liked best. When I saw the soft, romantic photography by Katie Mitchell, I knew she was the one for us, and my husband was particularly thrilled about the band, Jazz Around Midnight. Working with Vanessa made the whole process exciting and fun rather than stressful or overwhelming. Our wedding day was pure perfection and our guests have been talking about it ever since! We were so thrilled to give everyone an amazing experience – from our welcome party picnic at the Eiffel Tower to our beautiful venue, everything was better than I’d ever dreamed of. Vanessa even facilitated privatizing a bar for us after the ceremony which turned out to be such a highlight of the evening. Everything about our wedding day exceeded our expectations! We left for our honeymoon feeling like we’d created a truly special place in time. I will forever miss being in that moment in Paris, but I will never forget it.
I constantly tell people that getting married in Paris was the best idea I’ve ever had. Choosing Vanessa to be our wedding planner was even better! In the end, my husband and I felt like we’d truly made a friend in Paris. We can’t wait to come back!”
“You guys are amazing to work with! We enjoyed your professionalism, humour, smiles and hard work! That made it a very special and beautiful event!”
“Vanessa & Caroline did an incredible job planning our event. From the moment I met Vanessa, I knew she’d be up for the job. She and Caroline are dependable, professional, conscientious, and most of all, they really care about your wedding! Thank you so much Vanessa and Caroline – your help was critical to the execution of our event.”
“Vanessa and Caroline were a pleasure to work with! They were extremely thoughtful and helpful throughout our wedding planning process. They set us up with a talented and reliable team of vendors, that they worked with directly to coordinate every detail of our special day. We couldn’t have asked for a better team or a more perfect wedding day!”
“We could not have asked for a better team to help plan our wedding! Vanessa & Caroline were on point since day one of planning. We live in the U.S. and they made the process easy and enjoyable. I had an idea in my head of what I wanted the venue to look like and how the wedding day was going to turn out, and it far exceeded my expectations better than I could have ever imagined! Vanessa was so responsive to all emails, skypes and phone calls, she thought of every detail and did not miss a thing. She is so organized and even coordinated our trips to Paris for the planning. I thought it was going to be difficult planning a wedding from so far away and Vanessa made it incredibly doable and FUN. She is so nice and truly cared about us and our wedding week. I gained a friend in the process and cannot say enough wonderful things about this fabulous team!””
“My wife and I were more than happy with Vanessa and Caroline’s work for our special day. They did an absolutely amazing job with every aspect of our wedding. We needed planners who had the proven ability to get every last detail perfect for both a ceremony and reception, and Vanessa and Caroline were more than up to the task! We can’t recommend them enough. If you hire them for your big day, you won’t be disappointed.”
“Working with Vanessa was such a wonderful experience. I feel so grateful I had a wedding planner who was so lovely and capable to work with. Planning a wedding from afar can be stressful, but Vanessa always put us at ease and we trusted her completely. Vanessa has impeccable taste and she was so patient and accommodating throughout the whole planning process. Despite it being a bit of a rainy day, the whole wedding team helped make it so bright and fun. The day turned out more beautiful than I could have imagined! Thank you so much Vanessa for making our day so special!”
“Vanessa made our dream to get married abroad in Provence a reality. She made the process easy for us by researching options for the church, the venue, the caterer, the florist, and the DJ and effectively and efficiently liaised with different vendors by breaking the language barriers. Vanessa took extra care to keep in contact with us by Skype when needed to ensure she understood what we wanted for our wedding day and kept us updated of planning progress. On the actual wedding day, she bore the burden of organising all our vendors and timings throughout the day and night so that everything ran smoothly, and we didn’t have to stress about the events of the day. Without her, we would not have had the dream wedding that became our reality. We would recommend Vanessa et Caroline to anyone wanting a special wedding day!”
“A special thanks to our wedding planner in Paris Vanessa you did an amazing job!!! From beginning to end you listened to every detail…the cupcakes were delicious, photographer and videographer were spectacular….my hair and make up were flawless…can’t wait to see the video and photos. Thank you for sharing our celebration with us!”
“My husband and I cannot thank Vanessa and Caroline enough for making our wedding day the most memorable day of our lives. When we chose to get married in Versailles, we were a little nervous due to the language barrier and planning an entire wedding in another country. Vanessa and Caroline were recommended to us and all of our worries went away. Vanessa and Caroline coordinated the entire wedding from finding all of our vendors, setting up Skype sessions, coordinating the logistics, and the list goes on and on. We booked our wedding and reception at a beautiful hotel but did not pick out the ceremony location until the day of. We really wanted the ceremony to be on this beautiful terrace but were told by the hotel staff that it wouldn’t be possible due to a prior engagement that would be occurring there later in the day. My husband and I were crushed but before we knew it, Vanessa was telling us she worked it out and we were able to have our ceremony on the terrace! I don’t know how she did it but it was completely unexpected and we are so thankful to her! That is just one instance in which they made our lives so much easier and made our dream wedding a reality. Vanessa is very prompt, personable, and very good at what she does. Thank-you Vanessa and Caroline for making our big day perfect!”
