Check out our profile on Wedding Wire and read reviews from some of our recent brides like these:

“I worked with Abbie Doyle of The Simplifiers as a “day of” coordinator for my Wedding and she was fantastic. Everything went along smoothly and professionally because of Abbie and the team. I couldn’t have done it without them, from personally making sure everything was set-up beautifully to ensuring we stayed on time once the ceremony began, Abbie paid special attention to all of the details. I received a ton of complements from my guests and even the other vendors on what a great help The Simplifiers were! I am so happy that I made the decision to use The Simplifiers and that I had the opportunity to work with Abbie. It was wonderful to feel relaxed, and at ease knowing that we had a great team working to make the day special!”

“Without the help of the Simplifiers, my mother and I would’ve killed each other on my wedding day! Dani Alvarado and the team were like an army of organization, keeping me in check throughout the process the month of my wedding in February 2012. I work a crazy 60-hour/week corporate PR job and I needed to run the wedding planning like a business. From daily email status updates to vendor coordination (which was a huge help) and the occasional Skype call to talk me off a ledge, the Simplifiers removed all of my worry and took care of every detail. I wanted a non-traditional ceremony and a fabulous fiesta and that’s exactly what I got! The best part was that my husband and I truly had the most amazing time. I have heard from so many brides that the stress of planning distracted them from the single most important aspect of the whole thing – the celebration of your love. Luckily for me, I had the help of the Simplifiers to make my day absolutely awesome! HIGHLY recommended.”

“Mary at The Simplifiers was absolutely fantastic! My husband and I both agree that hiring her to coordinate our wedding was easily the best decision we made during the entire process. She came in as a “month-of” coordinator, after I had found my vendors, and gotten (almost) everything booked and contracted. She was on top of it, clearly knew the field inside and out, and her kindness, flexibility, and sense of humor abounded. The day of the wedding, she brought other Simplifier staff with her, and they were each equally fabulous. Our wedding ran like clockwork; there were no emergencies, no major foul-ups, and she kept everybody calm and happy. We couldn’t have been more pleased with The Simplifiers. We highly recommend them!”

“My husband and I chose The Simplifiers to be our day-of coordinators for our big day after a family had previously used them for a rehearsal dinner. Mary and her team were very helpful in helping us plan the many last minute details. They saved us loads of time serving as our “middle man” to our other wedding vendors. We are so grateful our wedding day went so smoothly!”

I know that it’s only the first week of October but hey, if Starbucks can start rolling out the scrumptious holiday flavors, you can too. The delightful pumpkin martini takes the signature seasonal flavor to a whole new  level.
