Jan 16, 2021
My husband and I originally planned to get married in July 2020, and since neither of us are from Alaska (we just wanted a destination wedding! ), we decided to hire a wedding planner. After a few searches, referrals, and interviews, he and I chose Yvette to help us. Best. Choice. Ever. From day one, she helped us with contacting venues, searching for vendors, and finding things to do in Alaska - and all for an incredibly reasonable price! The kicker though was when we had to postpone our wedding due to COVID. All this preparation was put on hold for a few months, but when we contacted Yvette again to reschedule for January 2021, she jumped right on to start up where we left off! The pandemic kept switching our plans on a weekly basis: from which weekend to get married, to expected guest turnout, to changing our wedding from a full ceremony to an elopement. Even during the week before the wedding, our timeline on the day of had to be altered. And every step of the way, Yvette was there. I don’t understand how she managed to be in so many places at once, but she was! Besides floating between my “get ready” room and my husband’s on the wedding day, she also picked up our cakes from the shop, ordered and brought our florals and greenery, and kept in constant contact with our photographer and videographer to ensure that the day went smoothly. I never heard any negativity from her, even when she had to drive many miles and hours for us! I wish I could remember every little thing Yvette did for us, but it was so much. All I know is that our wedding could not have gone as smoothly as it did without her. She was flexible, understanding, organized, professional, kind, and went above and beyond to make our day special and memorable. I started this whole process with a wedding planner, and I came out of it with a dear friend. I recommend Wedding Creative and Design to anyone looking for help with their Alaskan wedding - I promise you won’t regret it!!
