“Over and Above…Beyond our expectations! Simona is a true professional with a heart of gold…. It is difficult to put a value on the work and stress that Simona saved us from start to finish. Simona’s experience, guidance, knowledge and calm demeanor was invaluable to our wedding planning. Nothing was impossible; everything was doable. With Simona’s help, we were able to put together a flawless event in 2 months on a scale that would take most people 6-8 months. The attention to detail ensured perfection; nothing was forgotten. Simona was on top of every task and detail, and given the extreme timeline with a lot of moving parts, this was impressive. Certainly “top of class” and all with a smile. Many of our guests described our evening as “magical”. A million thanks to Simona and her team!!”

“We don’t know what we would do without Simona on the biggest day of our lives! She is exactly what we were looking for – an extension of us – she knew exactly what our vision was and made sure to be in every corner while we were too busy enjoying ourselves. Simona has made every effort to ensure that every little detail is looked after on the day of our wedding and we must say that the day went by shockingly FLAWLESSLY! Working with Something Blue was fun and easy – Simona has met with us multiple times before our big day to go over our schedule and has helped us tremendously in organizing our day and explaining every detail that we needed to know. On the day of the wedding, Simona and her team perfectly executed the coordination of all the vendors and took extra care in making sure that the day goes according to schedule and our vision. THANK YOU for your exceptional effort in making sure that our special day is perfect and stress-free. Eden & Tal ❤️”

“If you want peace of mind, Amazing collaboration and just someone AMAZING that puts you first, look no further. Thanks to Simona I had the most amazing experience for the most important day of my life! Simona worked tirelessly to help make sure everything was planned properly, executed perfectly, and most of all, made sure my bride and I were never stressed out. I have to say that thanks to Simona I was able to let go of the stresses of planning a wedding and of dealing with last minute inconvenience. Simona, thank you for everything that you did and thank you for making my most memorable moment of my life one that was filled with nothing but joy and happiness!!!”

“Simona is the best wedding planner! After trying and failing to plan my own wedding three times (each time attempt was cancelled due to money issues, family issues, and pandemic issues), I finally hired a wedding planner. I’m soooooooo happy that we found Simona! She is friendly, efficient, knowledgeable, and just generally awesome. From day 1, Simona was on top of everything, asking us specific and relevant questions, pointing out what we needed to do ASAP and what could wait, asking us about details that I hadn’t even thought of, communicating with all the vendors, and staying on top of everyone to ensure that the wedding went smoothly and happily. Simona was with us every step of the way. When I had a disagreement with the DJ two days before the wedding, she found us someone new. Even as I write this, my sister is commenting that my wedding would have completely fallen apart without Simona. I recommend her 1000%”

“Words can not express how helpful Simona was us! She truly was heaven sent. Simona really took the time to help us organize our wedding. We hired her as the day of coordinator but I believe she provided a lot more support. She created a detail schedule and itinerary of our wedding day, she contacted our vendors prior to the date. We had a huge wedding with 400 people and Simona and her team honestly made sure everything was done on time. My family and friends who previously had a day of coordinator said that Simona and her team were the best they have ever witness. I would highly recommend Something Blue if you are looking for a wedding planner. You will not be disappointed!!!”

Simona made us, and more importantly, our family and friends feel comfortable and relaxed. Simona was accessible much beyond the month itself, meeting with us several times to ensure alignment & cohesion. She truly understood our vision, and was a key figure of our special day!"
