Our wedding was more beautiful than either of us could have dreamed of, and just as magical as every fairy tale cliche. Gillian was an absolutely indispensable part of making all that happen: neither my wife nor I can imagine everything running as smoothly as it was without her. From fabulous advice throughout the planning process to being an absolutely joyful and calming presence throughout the wedding itself -- making sure we remembered to eat, keeping the procession crisp and clean and organized, ensuring that everything happened seamlessly and on time -- working with Gillian was the best decision we made through the entire wedding planning process. It was effortless to work with her, and a delight to not have anything to worry about on the day itself. If you're hesitating about whether you really need a day of coordinator, don't: work with Gillian. You deserve it. I promise she will make your wedding unforgettably gorgeous.

Gillian Todd was the Day of Coordinator for our wedding at Housing Works Bookstore, and we could not have asked for anyone more qualified and personable to support us on our special day. At every step of the way, she was present, prepared and responsive. She kept us apprised of everything she needed to, and handled everything else in the background without concerning us. If anything went wrong, we never new it! Our event was perfect, and that was due in a very large part to Gillian. We cannot recommend her more highly!
