Cheryl and Shea are worth their weight in gold. We originally hired Yellow Umbrella as the “day of” coordinators. That quickly changed 3 months before the wedding when my mom and I started falling behind on tasks, and frankly…had no clue what we where doing. We called Cheryl and she sprang into action. From that point on, she handled everything. I had emails of “do you like this or that one?” on a daily basis. Phone calls whenever I needed. Cheryl was so sweet and took care of everything. When vendors wouldn’t answer my calls, Cheryl had it solved within 30 minutes. My mom and I actually, and lovingly, gave her the nickname The hammer of Thor. I just love Cheryl. When our caterer went awry 3 weeks before the wedding, Cheryl had a new one lined up and a full tasting in 2 days. When we lost our DJ the day before the wedding, Cheryl told me not to worry, she had it under control. And when we were sawing into the fake tier of the cake, Cheryl was there to tell us “the real part is that tier right there”.
The wedding was amazing and I loved every minute of it. We jumped in the limo and were starving…of course there were 2 to-go boxes waiting for us. Our reviews from out guests weren’t just about how much fun they had, but how they couldn’t believe the attention to detail. That was all Cheryl. Everyone should have a Cheryl in their life, and I feel so lucky that I had the chance to. The saddest thing about the wedding being over, was not having Cheryl…I guess I’ll have to start planning something else!! =)
