I had an amazing experience with At Last!! I like to be in control and knew exactly what I wanted, so I took responsibility for most of the advance wedding planning, but I was interested in a day-of coordinator that could help me tie together all the last minute details for our destination wedding, confirm timing and logistics with vendors, and put together our timeline and communicate it to everyone the week of the wedding. At Last turned out to be the most perfect choice. Amanda was so flexible and helpful, it was a seamless and organized process. She went above and beyond what I expected, and helped me stay calm and relaxed for the big day. We hired her to put together our wedding bags at the hotels which was a lifesaver, and she helped make sure I was on top of everything every step of the way. I consider myself an organized person, but it helps SO much to have someone who has the experience orchestrating these events- it allows you to sit back and enjoy the biggest party and event of your life!!! Book with At Last, you won't regret it! -Jenna

Jaclyn and her team went above and beyond for our wedding. My Mom said over and over again that hiring her was the best money we spent! I agree. I felt we were given tons of value for our money with At Last. Although we hired Jaclyn as a day of coordinator, we were given assistance throughout the entire wedding planning process. I can only imagine how much attention to detail she gives as a full on wedding planner. Jaclyn made our families wedding planning experience fun, stress free and seamless. Our day was perfect and we give a lot of credit to Jaclyn and her team for that. I highly recommend At Last. Best decision ever! -Jordan

At Last was a dream to work with throughout the duration of our wedding planning and the day of. Although we hired them as a Day of Coordinator, they felt like a Year Long Coordinator. Jaclyn was prompt in responding to both phone calls and emails. Any worry that we could have had were taken care of immediately. She kept us on track for our wedding planning and made sure that we had all the tools we would need to successfully plan our wedding. On the actual wedding day, we had a few snags along the way (the ice maker broke, issues with food/alcohol timings, etc.) but we had NO IDEA this was going on. Jaclyn was able to keep the wedding running smoothly without putting any extra stress on us AT ALL. She was professional at all times and made sure that our happiness was her number one priority. I would highly recommend At Last!!! -Emily

Amanda form At Last was incredible as a day-of-coordinator. She was so organized and made the entire wedding day flow so flawlessly and effortlessly. My mom and I were SO grateful for all of her help!! And many of the vendors who got her timeline for our wedding day mentioned to me that they had never seen such a detailed, well-organized wedding timeline. -Morgan

Working with Jaclyn and her staff was an absolute pleasure---I can't imagine my wedding without the At Last team! During our first meeting, Jaclyn was friendly and professional. She provided us with organized information and I trusted that she would take the stress off of wedding planning, which she most certainly did! Compared to other planners, she offered a variety of services at a reasonable price. She put together a custom package for us that met all our needs. Throughout the planning period, Jaclyn was always timely with email responses. She sent monthly check-lists and helpful reminders whenever I was behind on something. She also set up meetings with other vendors that fit with our busy schedules and took time to review their contracts. On the wedding day, she and her assistant (Amanda) were so calm and professional, which made everyone else feel at ease. No one had a thing to worry about because we knew they were taking care of everything! She and the other vendors worked very well together, so everything went off without a hitch. No worries or problems at all! I highly recommend At Last to every bride....you will not regret it :) -Mary Pat

Hiring Jaclyn and her team was the best decision we ever made. Even though we only hired Jaclyn as a "Day of" coordinator, she was in communication with us from the day we paid our deposit - sending us monthly checklists, keeping us on track, and answering any questions or emails I had almost immediately. As for the wedding day, Jaclyn and Sam made sure everything went off without a hitch. They were great from start to finish, and I cannot thank them enough!! From setting up, coordinating the ceremony and other vendors, to packing up and everything in between, we didn't have to worry about a thing! -Stacie

These girls are angels and made my wedding day a dream come true. I was worried that I would not be able to decorate, manage, and oversee the ceremony and reception venues all while getting ready for the big day, but At Last handled it all. They are the BEST thing we spent money on for our wedding!! From day one and my call with Jaclyn I felt I could trust her with my vision. She is extremely organized and comfortable in her role and she was exactly what I needed. We met with her and her and her team for rehearsal and she was able to organize my entire wedding party and answered all my parents' questions as well. On the day of the wedding, all three of them were truly amazing. Jaclyn set up my entire ceremony and was waiting for me at the location when I arrived to give us a breakdown of times and where we could go to relax prior to actually walking down the aisle. During the ceremony she was on point with getting everyone down the aisle and afterwards she helped the photographer organize all the family shots. The reception is where I'm most thankful for all the hard work. I gave them all my decorations the day beforehand with little explanation. When I walked into the room, I was blown away with how perfect everything looked. They really captured everything I could have ever wanted. During the reception they kept tabs on the guests, kept me and my fiancé on schedule, and packed up every last item of ours into the cars at the end of the night. (They even helped bustle my dress and gave us a quick cake cutting lesson also). If you're questioning hiring them - DO IT! BEST DECISION I MADE REGARDING MY WEDDING!

I worked with Jaclyn and Amanda for the day of coordination service for my wedding. I have to say not only were they amazing the day of, but in the months and weeks leading up to our big day. The monthly check list reminders to keep me on track were amazing and any time I had a question a quick response was always provided...something very important and helpful to any bride that is in the planning process. The day of my wedding went so smooth...even when impending weather threatened my outdoor ceremony. Nonetheless, Jaclyn and Amanda were amazing at setting up my decor, rearranging things as needed due to weather, coordinating my huge bridal party and even reminding me to just breathe, eat and stay calm and take it all in. I highly recommend them for any and all of your events!!! Thank you again ladies! xo - Kasey

Jaclyn and the team at "At Last" are amazing! Truly top notch service. Every question, every detail, EVERYTHING... they were on top of it! They made our wedding go by so smoothly and everything was absolutely perfect! I can't thank them enough. Weddings are stressful but they kept everything in place and made my life SO much easier. You need to hire them! - Jenn

We hired Amanda with At Last Wedding & Event Design to help us coordinate the final details of our destination wedding. From our first conversation she was extremely helpful. Nothing was overlooked and she assured us everything was being taken care of...and it was. Since we couldn't meet prior to the rehearsal, she skyped with us ensuring she understood exactly what we wanted. She then put together a detailed timeline that she provided for us and our vendors to follow - huge help! She did a beautiful job putting together our welcome baskets and delivering them to the hotel. She arrived early at the church for the rehearsal and made sure everyone knew what their role. The day of the wedding I didn't have to worry whether or not everything was where it was supposed to be, or when it was supposed to be there. Amanda was on top of it all. She worked with our vendors to make sure everything ran on time and smoothly, while remaining in the background the whole night. This allowed me to actually enjoy the day. At the end of the night, she collected all of our belongings and gifts and delivered them to our room. She was pleasant to work with throughout the entire process and very professional. I would highly recommend her for any event!! - Lisa

I can't provide enough positive feedback about our experience working with Jaclyn + At Last! Jaclyn and I had a telephone conference when I was interviewing planners, and I instantly connected with her. She was very accomodating and created a package for us that fit both our needs and our budget. We contracted for her "day of" services, but we certainly did not feel like we only had a planner on the day of our wedding. Jaclyn provided recommendations for the few vendors we had not yet settled on, and was extremely responsive to emails in the months leading up to the wedding. Jaclyn provided us with worksheets to fill out a couple of months ahead of the wedding, which was a huge help - it forced us to tie up all of the loose ends and included a lot of logistical information we never would have considered! Jaclyn met with us at our venue five weeks prior to the wedding for a walk-though and face-to-face meeting. My parents were so impressed with her that they extended our package with her. Leading up to the event, Jacyln was in regular communication with us, and I received comments from several vendors that she was "on her game" and great to work with. Jaclyn handled the rehearsal and wedding perfectly - if there were any problems, we didn't know about them, which was exactly what we wanted. But for the day flying by way too quickly, our day was perfect! Jaclyn and her did a wonderful job executing our vision. We and our guests had a wonderful time, and we have At Last to thank! I highly recommend Jaclyn and her team - you will not be disappointed! - Amanda

When my husband, mother, and I first met with At Last we knew right away they were the team we wanted for our wedding day. They put us at ease and understood our vision. Amanda was so helpful in every step of the wedding planning process. Meeting with her two weeks before our wedding calmed my nervous completely. There was no doubt that she was organized and prepared. This proved to be true on our wedding day. An hour before the wedding was supposed to start, it started to storm and our plan was to have an outdoor wedding. In an hour, most of our plans had to change and At Last managed it so well. Amanda handled it with poise and kindness. She interacted wonderfully with our guests, a lot of them commented on how impressed they were with her. Trust me, you want At Last coordinating your wedding day! - Karin

Jaclyn and At Last were the absolute best decision we made for our wedding. She was amazing since day one. We hired her a year and a half before our wedding and she kept in touch the whole time even though there wasn't much to do early on. Her checklists are great and she is extrememly quick with her responses on email! She will answer any question who have and even research things for you. She made sure on our wedding day that we were prepared with every detail and did not skip on anything. Even when it rained on our day, she swiftly coordinated everything to go inside and kept everything going as if there was no change. She made sure all events went on as planned and we had a wonderful time! I have recommended her to all my engaged friends. -Carly

I loved working with Katie at At Last! From our first meeting till our wedding day and after Katie was exceptional. She was very responsive to all my questions and concerns. My wedding venue did not provide coordination services and I could not have enjoyed my wedding day as much as I did without the help of the At Last team. They keep us on schedule and directed everyone, from the wedding party to our guest, on when and where they needed to be. They did it in a kind and professional manner as well. All of my DIY items were placed where I wanted them and they even moved items from my ceremony site to our reception site. My husband, mother and even some guest have commented to me how essential At Last was to our big day. A HUGE THANKS to Katie and her At Last team! Highly Recommended! - Alyssa

Finding a wedding coordinator like At Last is about as rare as seeing a shooting star. Even though it was day-of service only, I never felt as I had been put on the back burner until my wedding day. The owner Jaclyn answered all my questions, and sent me helpful checklists monthly to help keep me on track and even checked in from time to time and see if I was doing ok and Amanda traveled all the way from Orlando to a small town in Georgia. After my first skype meeting with Amanda I felt as if she was a girlfriend I had known for years! My stress level went down and I finally got a sense of calmness knowing someone who was so organized and detailed was going to be there for me on my wedding day. Bless her heart, if I didn't have changes until literally the wedding day and with every change I received nothing but a smile and an "ok." Both Amanda and Jaclyn truly made my wedding day the success that it was. When the nervousness arose right before the ceremony, I saw Amanda and she instantly had a smile or words to calm me. I gave her free reign to decorate the reception with everything I had purchased and told her to "make it pretty," and it was the most gorgeous thing I'd ever seen! At the end of the night I wasn't exhausted from remembering where to go, who to thank, when to do the cake cutting, etc. I had sweet Amanda by my side kindly guiding me to where I needed to be. She packed up everything and cleaned for us and left as if there had never even been a huge party! Words can't describe how thankful, blessed and lucky I am to have had At Last be there for me on the best day of my life! No matter how organized you are or aren't, having a team like these ladies is the best decision you could ever make - other than the groom ;) - Amy

Katie was amazing! From the initial consultation, she was so willing to help us pick a plan that fit within our budget, which not everyone is. Katie would email me periodically throughout the year leading up to the wedding to see how the planning was going, and she was very quick to respond to any questions I had and offer help with vendor selection, etc. The final month before the wedding, I felt like an unorganized mess trying to get everything together and get the seating chart changed for the 18th time, but Katie was a champ and on the day of the wedding, you would've had no idea of the chaos leading up to it because it was flawless. I provided my own decor and she and her team had it set up beautifully. They even set up the flowers because our florist only provided delivery service. They are much more than day of coordinators. I literally did not have to worry about one thing on my wedding day. Thank you so much for making it such a wonderful, amazing day! - Jen

Amanda was the best thing that happened to my wedding. She helped us throughout the process, but I really did not see how much I needed her until the day before. She basically took everything from me, made sure she understood what we wanted, then said go have fun. Her being there made the day so much smoother. Before the wedding, Amanda and the At Last team set everything up, and moved things as they needed due to the wind, then during the ceremony she captained the music and the timing. We decided we wanted to leave early, and instead of me or my family struggling to call the limo, she did all the work. And when the limo didn't show up prior to the wedding, she was jumping through hoops to create a solution. Her and her team's services were invaluable. If she had not been there to guide me, I know I would have had regrets and forgotten many things on my wedding day. - Lauren

My wedding was absolute perfection because of At Last! The entire experience of planning my wedding was fabulous with Jaclyn by my side to help with everything. Her knowledge and experience are priceless and having her involved in my wedding was the biggest blessing. On my wedding day, I felt completely stress-free knowing our event was in the hands of At Last. All the details were exactly how I pictured them, some even better than I pictured! Jaclyn, Katie and Cheryl were all fantastic and a joy to work with. At Last is the best!! - Amanda

The best decision I made during the planning process was hiring Jaclyn. She was truly a blessing. I started working with her a year before my wedding. She was always pleasant and has a great sense of humor. We live in Tampa so Jaclyn arranged meetings with vendors so that we did not have to travel to Orlando a lot. She was able to get us discounts with so many vendors which helped keep us on budget. About a month before the wedding we got a call from Jaclyn explaining we had to change our venue. There was damage due to a tropical storm and renovations would not be complete until October. She then informed me that she would be giving birth to her first child the next day. I was in panic mode but she assured me that everything would be taken care of and gave me some options for new venues. We chose one of the venues she selected and everything went smoothly. It was as if nothing happened. She scheduled a new tasting and made sure everything was in order. I can't believe she managed to take care of everything after giving birth to her child. Jaclyn is truly an amazing coordinator and superwoman. The wedding day was perfect! Jaclyn made sure everything stayed on schedule and that I spent some alone time with my new husband. When she revealed our reception space I was so impressed. I am so glad we hired Jaclyn. No bride should ever feel that hiring a coordinator is not in their budget. Jaclyn gives brides so many options and she's worth it. I don't think I would have been able to handle a last minute venue change on my own. Thanks again Jaclyn and the At Last team. - Karimah

Hiring At last Wedding & Event Design was the best decision! Jaclyn and Amanda were so attentive, detail oriented, thorough and easy to work with. When the rehearsal day came, Amanda's professionalism and experience truly blew me away , I just knew I was in good hands. From the invitiation RSVP service to the rehearsal and right up til the moment when we realized all the guests had left and the vendors were about to leave, Amanda was there taking care of everything! She and Jaclyn truly made my wedding the beautiful day it was and I highly recommend At Last to anyone. Money truly well spent! - Claudia

Jaclyn, Amanda and the At Last Team have achieved the perfect blend of professionalism and friendliness that can put any bride worries to rest. The team is efficient, effective, detail oriented, knowledgeable in their field and can do it all with a smile on their faces. They are willing to meet with clients as much as needed, at whatever time works for you, and answer numerous questions per day via emails as well. When the rehersal day and wedding day arrived I couldnt have made it through without them. I wish I could experience it all over again!!! My only advice would be to USE THEIR EXPERTISE!!! Some of my vendors I had booked prior to meeting with At Last and now wish that I had waited a little longer so I would have had Jaclyns advice.If you decide to go with At Last for your wedding coordination services you won't be disappointed. Thank you so much Ladies :) - Colleen

When I first started to plan my wedding hiring a coordinator was not in my budget nor even a thought in my mind. After going to a bridal show I received an email from Jaclyn with At Last. I decided to meet with her and ever since that meeting I knew I needed to hire her right away. She helped me with EVERYTHING and anything I needed. Was always prompt to answer me and even called/emailed to check on me. If it wasn't for her- I would not have had such EXCELLENT vendors. From my wonderful photographer to the DJ and even the food- everything was superb and the only reason I was able to find them was because of her. Keep in mind we hired for a Day of Coordinator and I felt like she was wedding planner- it was fabulous. Even her assistant Katie was fantastic! Her prices were exellent- but the reason we chose her was because of the connection we had with her at our first meeting. I cannot thank and rave about Jaclyn and her At Last team enough. - Arielle

Jaclyn with At Last was the first vendor I hired when I began wedding planning, and I am so thankful I did. We brought her on as our day-of coordinator, but she was so helpful above and beyond that. When situations got sticky between some of my other vendors, Jaclyn was able to smooth it all over so that I wouldn't have to worry at all. The wedding itself ran beautifully, and everything was exactly how I had pictured it. I am so thankful to Jaclyn and her team for all of the hard work they put into making my wedding so absolutely incredible and I couldn't have asked for a better coordinator. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a coordinator/planner. - Stephanie

Hiring Jaclyn and her Team with At Last was the best decision I made for my Wedding Day! I would highly recommend them to anyone! They were all so professional and helpful through my planning process with any questions I ever had and on my Wedding Day everything went so smoothly because of them! I could not have asked for a better team to run one of the most important days of my life! I have no idea if anything even went wrong that day as everything seemed so perfect it was the happiest day of my life and they made it into a fairytale! Thank you so much Jaclyn and Team for all your hard work and dedication on our Wedding Day! You all truly are awesome!!!! - Annie

Hiring At Last Weddings was one of the best decisions we made while planning our wedding. Working with Jaclyn and her staff was easy and comfortable, which allowed my husband and I to enjoy our wedding without a worry. Jaclyn was always easy to get in touch with, and offered valuable information without ever being pushy or concerned about what was easier for her. At-Last Weddings was an absolute dream to work with, so professional and sweet! I would highly recommend hiring them for your big day, as they will exceed all of your expectations! - Nicole

Jaclyn was well-organized and so sweet throughout the entire process - she always responded quickly and thoroughly to all of my questions. When it came time to the week of the wedding - she was instrumental in making sure all the last-minute loose ends were tied up properly.By the day of the wedding, I was a wreck and it was only upon arriving to the venue and seeing everything perfectly in order that I finally calmed down and began to enjoy the day - she was on top of everything. Making sure vendors were where they needed to be, making sure everything ran on time & smoothly, making sure none of our drunk friends murdered one another with the 32-inch long sparklers, etc... She did a fantastic job and both me and my now-husband were incredibly impressed! - Kate

We had the wedding of our dreams and it was all thanks to my mother and my wedding planners!! Jaclyn helped me the whole way through and was a complete blessing. Everyone kept asking me "are you stressed/nervous" and my answer was always no :) I definitely recommend At Last for full-time planning, but if that is not in your budget then DEFINITELY use them for day-of coordination! What a stress-free time for me AND my family :) - Jennifer

Jaclyn was a phenomenal wedding planner. From the first moment I heard her on the phone, I knew she would be great to work with. She prides herself in getting back to her brides (and grooms) as quickly as she can, so she never leaves you all by yourself in the wedding planning process. I had so many moments in which I was completely clueless as to what to do in regards to anything from colors, to linen, to food, to bridal shower etiquette; and she always has all the answers. I literally had my very own wedding expert guiding me every step of the way. Even though she is one of the most professional people I've ever met, it still felt more like having a friend giving me advice and solving my problems than anything else.I would recommend At Last to every bride out there. Their packages are customizable so you can use them as little or as much as you need. My favorite feature (besides having Jaclyn and her assistants there on the wedding day and rehearsal) was hiring Jaclyn's services as the vendor contact. She has developed relationships with a lot of the vendors, or at the very least knows enough about them to get you the best deals, without you having to play phone tag with a million different people. At Last was amazing and I cannot imagine having planned my wedding without At Last! - Almarie

At Last was amazing!!! At first throughout the wedding planning process my parents and I said "oh we can just do it ourselves" then we quickly realized we needed help! For any bride with an upcoming wedding; please go with At Last and sit back and relax and enjoy the day as they make your wedding absolutly beautiful and flawless. At Last is so organized, professional, and always available - three VERY important things to any bride :) I cannot say enough good things about At Last - Jaclyn, Cheryl, and Amanda made my wedding day one I will never forget!!! - Laura

Jaclyn was absolutely wonderful to work with! Planning a wedding out of town was so easy with her help as our day of coordinator. I didn't have to worry about a thing. From the moment I met with her she was on the ball organizing all of the last minute preparation prior to the wedding as well as planning the wedding day schedule by the minute. My family and I can't thank her enough for helping to make my day beautiful and run smoothly! -Sara

I really don't even know where to start when describing the most incredible wedding coordinator ever. I am a professional wedding photographer and have worked alongside quite a few coordinators, but none even compare to Jaclyn and her At Last team. I really had no intentions of having a coordinator, but when I started coming across issues in the planning process, she noticed it and took the initiative to e-mail us with suggestions. After a few e-mails back and forth, we realized that if we didn't hire Jaclyn and her team, we would really regret it. From the beginning, she was responsive (the KEY to any wedding vendor!), friendly, and professional. Any bumps that came along the way, she handled without breaking a sweat. I don't know that I've met any other coordinator with so much to offer and that do it so naturally. Looking back on the wedding day now, I honestly don't know how smoothly everything would have actually gone without her there. Jaclyn is not someone we view as one of our wedding vendors...she is truly a friend now and I know that I'll keep in touch with her. I recommend her to every single bride that I meet with, and I'm strongly recommending her to anyone and everyone who is considering getting a coordinator. You honestly won't regret it. Our friends and families raved about her and her professionalism, confidence, and sincerity. Jaclyn, I can't thank you and your team enough. You really helped make our wedding everything we had hoped for!- Sivan

I conducted quite a bit of research before hiring a wedding planner. I decided to hire Jaclyn and her team, because Jaclyn was personable & shared our enthusiasm for our upcoming wedding. It was the best decision we could have made, because Jaclyn & the At Last team were absolutely amazing and professional. We started planning our wedding more than a year in advance and At Last was there every step of the way to provide us with very handy check lists and reminders. I regularly sent Jaclyn lengthy e-mails with a wealth of information and questions and she always responded extremely fast addressing each and every issue. At Last also recommended a host of other wedding vendors and every wedding vendor that they recommended & we hired was absolutely amazing & professional. We had a great team that created a magical experience for us and At Last was instrumental in that! Even my family absolutely loved Jaclyn and her team, because they were the consummate professionals from beginning to end. I would recommend Jaclyn & her team without hesitation as they are some of the best professionals we have ever worked with and are worth their weight in gold. With the At Last team you can rest assured that your wedding will be absolutely amazing! We could not be more thankful for everything they did for us & for making our dream wedding a reality! - Sultana
