Three weeks before my wedding, I was a complete wreck. Wedding plans had not gone smoothly (that’s an understatement!) and I was faced with some major gaps in vendors and already over-budget. Enter Cheryl and Shea and the Yellow Umbrella Crew. Like an assertive fairy godmother, Cheryl and Shea stepped in and skillfully guided me through the decisions that needed to be made. Never once did I doubt that they wanted to help my husband and I have the wedding of our dreams and they went above and beyond to make that happen. From vendor selections, contract reviews, design brainstorming, and exceptional coordination services, Yellow Umbrella was there for us when we needed them most. It takes true talent to navigate some of the unique social issues that arise when planning a wedding and savvy to handle the involvement of so many individuals and vendors. Cheryl and Shea have both talent and savvy in spades! Whether it was picking bugs out of the many layers of my Vera Wang dress (watch out, girls! Tulle and outdoor photos = bugs in May!), managing delicate social interactions among guests, or ensuring that my new husband and I had a few precious moments together to soak everything in, they did it all. Cheryl and Shea were available every time we needed them and hold themselves to the highest of professional standards. My husband and I also loved the unique male and female perspectives that they provide and their ability to be with both parties. In our case, we had a very short amount of time in which to save a very important day. Cheryl and Shea asked all the right questions and made all the needed connections in an impressive amount of time, while maintaining a major focus on getting to know our needs and wants and advocating for us, when needed. I cannot speak highly enough of this company. They truly saved our wedding and created something that brought me to tears – it was more than the wedding I’d always dreamed of and better! If you are looking for superior coordination services from a talented team, I have three words for you: Yellow Umbrella Events.
