Day of Coordination

Day of coordination is perfect for the couple who has a clear vision of their day but wants to ensure that it is executed flawlessly.

We can help streamline the remainder of the planning process stress free.

I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better team than yours! You all helped make our day wonderful and special without any stress and that was all I wanted and I will cherish those memories forever!! Thank you so much!

Thank you for all your work on the wedding!! I hope you know how much it meant to us. It turned out to be the wedding of our dreams and that’s all thanks to you. I just wish we could go back and do it all over again. I also know that without you we wouldn’t have been able to relax and actually enjoy our wedding!

We can’t help but smile every time we think about our wedding. There were so many decisions we had to make during our planning process but the easiest decision by far was working with Coco Events, we can’t imagine our day without them.
