We had our absolute dream wedding and it was totally thanks to Brenda and her team.
Brenda has an encyclopedic knowledge of venues in Italy, a fantastic network of Italian contacts and vendors and of course, is fluent in Italian language and culture. This, combined with her previous time spent working for Vera Wang in New York mean that you get the New York ‘can-do’ attitude, impeccable attention to detail, and a truly instinctive understanding of what you will want.
Such was my absolute faith in Brenda that we booked our wedding venue without having visited it- I cannot describe how unlike me it is to have done this! Brenda has an amazing ability to understand exactly what you’re looking for, almost before you fully know yourself.
I was so grateful to Brenda for her confidence and judgment in the venue and it’s suitability for us. It was beyond perfect, better than we could have hoped for. She is the perfect blend of being decisive when required without being pushy whatsoever– for us these qualities proved invaluable throughout the entire process. Over the following months I bombarded poor Brenda with so many questions about every single teeny, tiny detail of the wedding. She was, without exception, super-helpful, patient, reassuring, and always made me feel infinitely calmer and more confident that the wedding would be perfect. Nothing was ever a problem.
My husband dealt with the financial side of things and was so pleased that we came in under budget (again, very unlike me!) thanks to Brenda’s advice, contacts and negotiation skills. She has total integrity and guides you on where to spend and where to save according to your priorities. Honestly, the absolute best money we spent on the wedding was engaging Brenda Babcock Celebrations.
Everyone says something always goes wrong in relation to your wedding but not one single thing that Brenda helped us with went wrong. She has the Midas touch! I cannot describe how amazing it is to have a wedding planner you can totally trust – to make the right choices, to connect you with the right vendors and to deal with everything on the day so that you can relax and enjoy the happiest days of your life. It makes the whole process such a pleasure. On the wedding day itself everything was flawless and beautiful beyond belief. Brenda has an amazing ability to be close by when you need her but so discreet in her presence. She is a consummate professional in every way.
I whole-heartedly and unreservedly recommend Brenda, I cannot state strongly enough how totally amazing she is at every aspect of wedding planning. We are, and shall forever remain, infinitely grateful and indebted to Brenda for all that she did for us. I wish we could do it all over again! Brenda is wedding planning perfection.
