WHAT WE OFFER

Oh my gosh, there shouldn’t even be anyone else in this business but Aquina or people that are just like her. She made my wedding beyond beautiful. There are simply no words that can describe that feeling of when you see everything set up and come together on your wedding day. It was truly a dream come true and it was all because of Aquina. Thank you so much for being amazing and so much more! I lost a planner but gained a friend.

Aquina was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was so patient throughout the entire planning process and we seriously could not have gotten everything setup and coordinated the day of without her. She went above and beyond and even coordinated with a calligrapher to do a welcome sign for us using her sign she let us borrow for the day. She also brought some cute chairs that we used behind our sweetheart table. Aquina took the time to meet with us several times at the venue and met with me on several other occasions to coordinate everything. She is incredibly reasonable and will do everything in her power to make sure your day is perfect. Thanks Aquina!

This girl knows how to finish strong! I hired Aquina about 3 months before my wedding date. After planning almost everything on my own for the last year, I was feeling overwhelmed with the final details, not knowing if I was actually as prepared as I hoped to be. Aquina turned that around! After our first face-to-face meeting, I knew she was who I needed to get my sanity back before the wedding. As the big day approached, she stayed in close contact with me about all vendors; she confirmed with them the week before; and she handled all issues day of in conjunction with our designated decision maker (the Father of the Groom). I am so happy to say my Wedding Day was the most beautiful, exciting, fun, stress-free day I could've imagined. As far as I know, there was not a single issue, and I attribute that whole-heartedly to Aquina's ability to organize and complete tasks!

I wanted an out of state wedding in the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee with our families. I contacted Aquina and I’m glad I did. She found a beautiful venue in the mountains near a running stream and organized everything! All of our accommodations were perfect! I couldn’t of asked for anything better. She went above and beyond my expectations. Thank you!

Aquina is absolutely amazing! My fiancé and I are very low-key, and while we had a general idea of what we wanted, we are very go with the flow so didn't really know details. Aquina made sure our venue was beautifully decorated, and kept the decor and bouquets a surprise (which she knew I would love,) and then set up the photographer and videographer up to record our reactions to the venue. It was absolutely perfect! I cried when I saw how beautiful it was! And even though we got a bit behind schedule on our itinerary, she made sure everything ran smoothly and was 100% flexible. I also would suggest booking her brother, Sala, as DJ if you can! They work flawlessly as a team and they both made our day absolutely wonderful! If I went back and did it again I would book them 100x over! Thank you for making our day wonderful and stress free!
