AMAZING! FANTASTIC! and just overall THE BEST! Janet was phenomenal to work with. She made things a breeze for us as our DOC for our wedding day. She helped us with our table seating chart by creating this gorgeous french door stand with all the people written on the chart and their coordinating tables. She created our table names (on the tables), and little gift boxes for those going home (aside from our favors). She had anything and everything we could think of the day of and was just on it. I was completely calm, cool and collected the day of my wedding and it has a lot to do with Janet. I cannot say enough amazing things about her. I would recommend her over and over again to anyone that wanted a DOC or wedding planner for that matter. Not only professional, but prompt and just on it all the time with any questions or concerns I had. Every e-mail was answered accordingly and quickly. You would be making a mistake not to hire her!

I just had my daughters wedding this past weekend at the Bourne mansion. For anyone wondering if they should book there wedding here please listen to me YES!!!! YES!!!! . I can not say enough about it, the mansion speaks for itself, beautiful . However beauty is not enough if the staff is not good. Well let me tell you that is not the case. Starting with Miriam , she is who we first met with to book and plan it all. Miriam is so sweet , wonderful to work with, she walks you through everything. She is calm and sweet, she knows exactly what you need to make your day perfect,I absoutely adored her. Next Steve , well without Steve I’m not sure the Bourne mansion would be in business. From the very beginning of the night till the minute you walk out the door Steve is guiding you through it all. He is there to tell you every thing you need to know and do , things that we would be clueless about. He is so good at what he does, he always madel sure we were happy too. So now we have a beautiful place with people who are amazing and so so nice. We have the most amazing food as well, but what some people don’t know is or I should say who they don’t know is Debbie . Deb minarik , wow!! So I decided to hire deb for day of coordinator just because I stress and needed help that day. Omg I don’t know how we could have done it without her. Deb did everything , there was nothing she would not do . She starts early and leaves with you . She sets up everything for photos, she tells you what to do and when to do it. She has a schedule of your day, and follows it so your day runs smooth. I found out that I wasn’t the only one she was helping , the whole bridal party did as well. Everyone of my daughters girls told me they don’t Know what they would have done without deb. She is there for everyone, and all there needs as well as running the whole day . She is so under paid . Deb is worth so much more, I would never think of doing any large event again without her. Janet also works for deb. She made beautiful baskets , and has such creative ideas. She was able to put my daughter and son in laws monogram on the mirrors. It was such a beautiful touch. She is so good at what she does, and so helpful, her and deb are a great team.So now you have a beautiful mansion with the nicest most amazing team of people, why look anywhere else. Perfect, most beautiful wedding. They made a dream come true.

Having Deb as my day of coordinator was the absolute best decision I made in my entire wedding planning process. I don’t know what I would’ve done without her on the day of my wedding. Deb is efficient, calming, very kind, and very knowledgeable. She took care of everything the day-of, even when things did not go according to plan. She also supported me even months before my wedding when I had questions or needed advice. Deb is the best!!!

I worked with Janet to create a mirrored seating chart. My only regret is that I did not find Janet sooner in my wedding planning process to hire her as my wedding planner or day of coordinator. She made my vision for the seating chart come to life and it exceeded my expectations! I can only imagine the wonderful job she must do if she is hired for as a wedding planner or day of coordinator. Her care for me as a client was evident and heartwarming. Highly recommend!

Day of Deb is the best!!!!! Even before the actual day of course Debbie was in contact and helped me get organized and suggested vendors and ideas. I was a pretty relaxed bride, aka procrastinator, and Debbie was so helpful. On the day of she had everything under control my bridesmaids, my mom and I could just enjoy every moment. Everything went to smooth. Thank you Debbie!!!

I wish I could give her more than five stars! Deborah was that excellent.She took the hassle out of wedding planning. She was dedicated , helpful, and always there when I needed her. The day of the wedding it rained so hard .It was a real monsoon wedding but her team and her were the light to this wedding. It was so great to see them escorting the guests to the church with umbrellas etc. If you want your wedding to be the best day of your life then you need to have the best in the game. It’s not easy dealing with big Indian weddings and a big bridal party of 24 but somehow she did it so effortlessly. She helped me from start to finish with getting great deals from vendors to the very last detail of giving out tip envelopes at the end of the night. I am so happy to have had her throughout this whole process.

Truly amazing, best day ever. It was everything we ever wanted and more. We could not have asked for a better day. Debbie was the best decision we made for our wedding. She is so sweet, caring, warm, helpful, and most of all so calming. Everyone needs a Debbie in their life for sure. I could use her on a day to day hands down 150%. She was with us every step of the way and she never stopped for a second. I really can’t thank her enough for guiding us through one of the most important days of our lives. If it wasn’t for Debbie, our day would not have been the same and I’m sure of it. Our family and friends adored her. The dedication, hustle and love for the work is so inspirational. Debbie, you have a heart of gold and we love you for taking such good care of us. We are so happy that you were part of our very special day. All the best and we wish nothing more than continuous success! Francesca & Ralph
