"Hiring 2 Friends Events to be my day of coordinator was the best wedding decision I made. From the moment I first met with Nichole, I knew I would be in good hands! She was knowledgeable about all things wedding, and she is super personable and fun as well. And although I only hired 2 Friends Events for day of coordination, Nichole and Lindsay said they were available any time if I needed them for random wedding questions. When I handed off all of the wedding details and items to them before the wedding, I felt the biggest weight off my shoulders! Knowing they were handling the entire day made me totally at ease on my wedding day. I didn't have to worry about one thing - they handled it all. I just enjoyed the entire event, it flew by, and I know it was because I didn't once have to worry about the logistics of the event. I can't thank Nichole and Lindsay enough for all of their help and for enabling me to enjoy my wedding to the fullest!"

"My new husband and I both agree that hiring 2 Friends Events was the easiest and best decision we made while planning our wedding! A decision that saved us money, time, as well as stress. We will absolutely use these ladies again for our next event and recommend them to all of our friends!"

"I hired 2 friends events as day of coordinators for my wedding. In short, they were amazing to work with from day 1. From working with my other vendors to create a well planned, efficient timeline to directing our rehearsal to managing the overall day of our wedding to ensure every detail was as we had requested, everything came out as expected and quite frankly exceeded our expectations. There is one situation in particular that showed how prepared they were. We took pictures right after the ceremony and needless to say, it was chaotic. We wanted certain family members to be in pictures but in the hectic scene of the day, we weren't following the planned photo schedule established. Nichole saw this and quickly took control of the situation, with the photo shoot schedule in hand and we got our shots done within 10-15 minutes.
It's that kind of direction that makes events run as smoothly as possible and I am very grateful they were there to keep us on track while my husband and I and our entire cast of family and friends could simply relax and enjoy the festivities.
I will definitely utilize their services again when planning a more elaborate event. They are truly fantastic to work with. Thanks Nichole and Lindsay!"

"You and Lindsay really made me feel like everything was taken care of, and having that peace of mind allowed me to let go and just enjoy every bit of our wedding day. I kept telling Eric how happy I was that you ladies were there. I cannot imagine going through those two days without you guys"

"Thank you guys SOOOOO MUCH for all of your help! You guys were tremendous. You wouldn't believe the number of complements we received in terms of how the evening flowed so well and this is all because of you two. We wish you the best going forward and we absolutely will recommend our friends to you two. Thank you again for EVERYTHING!"

"We can't thank 2 Friends Events enough for helping to make our wedding day as stress free and enjoyable as possible! They responded to emails quickly, helped coordinate the wedding rehearsal and made sure that all the little details of the wedding were taken care of. I would recommend 2 Friends Events to anyone who would like help planning their event so that they can enjoy the actual event themselves. In fact, my own maid of honor was so impressed with Nichole and Lindsay that she has hired them for her own wedding! Thank you 2 Friends Events!!!"

"Hiring 2 Friends Events was the best decision that my husband and I made in the planning process for our wedding!!! Nichole and Lindsay worked closely with us the whole time and made the process as stress free as possible. They went with us to view as many venues as we needed and even proposed options that we didn't know were available. I feel that they went above and beyond what other wedding planners were offering and I would definitely hire them again if I were planning another big event. I don't know how we would have handled everything the day of without them. Thank you for everything Nichole and Lindsay."

"My husband and I got married in the SF Zoo this past May, and many commented that it was one of the best-run weddings ever. This is in no small part to our two day-of wedding planners. We met up with them months before the wedding, and they gave us a checklist/timeline of things we needed to consider and organize. To help us out, they had suggestions and recommendations of items and vendors, but they were totally flexible.
As the big day drew nearer, they toured the wedding and reception venues with us, offering pointers and assembling a timeline for the rehearsal dinner, wedding, and reception. We gave them the contact information for all the working parties (officiant, SF Zoo coordinator, florist, DJ, photographers, and even our military saber arch!) and they were able to organize everyone into one coherent effort of getting the wedding setup and moving.
Throughout the reception, our planners would find us and let us know when certain events would be happening (ex: in ten minutes we’ll do the garter toss), and they coordinated with our DJ so that he could time the music and make the appropriate announcements. When it was finished, they helped us tear down and pack everything up, even driving some of our leftover cake to our hotel room nearby!
Overall, we are thrilled we hired our day-of planners. The wedding went off exactly on time and finished exactly when we planned on it winding down. Additionally, there were no foul-ups and there was no confusion between ourselves, our guests, or any of our vendors, and this was owed almost entirely to them."

I wanted to write and say thank you so much for being such a phenomenal coordinator for us- both for everything leading up to our big day, as well as everything you and Nicole did on our wedding day. Everything looked amazing and was even better than I imagined! We had so many compliments from our guests about how Lucie Stern looked gorgeous, the food and servers were great, the flowers and other decorations looked beautiful and the overall party was so fun! I would love to recommend you to anyone I know who is planning an event.
