"Picking a day of coordinator is hard because the vision is all in your head; DIY brides like me especially have a hard time because we've taken chances on projects and we need someone to make them work. Thank god for Jove and his assistant Marie - they made our wedding. I was referred to Jove by my fantastic make-up artist about six weeks before, and even though they were my "day of" coordinators, I had access and their invaluable input from day one. On my big day, Marie put every detail together perfectly and even handled my father - there is no other planner in New York City who could have done that. I've already referred Jove to my bride friends - you should hire him too!"
