Looking for a couples perspective? 

here are the kindest words from our past couples that truly bring me joy each and every day

My husband and I had been together over 8 years when we (*finally*) got engaged. I had ideas of what I wanted my big day to look and feel like, however, knew that I was going to need assistance finding all the right people to help pull it off. I had already selected a venue when I began searching for a wedding planner. The Knot directed me to a handful of individuals in the Chicagoland area but the first (and only) person I spoke with was Alyssa with Northwest Weddings. From the first call to get discuss what I was looking for, I knew she was the right fit. She saw my vision and was genuinely interested in ensuring Rick and I got what we were looking for in our special day but also in our lives as individuals and as a couple. Alyssa quickly became a friend as we spoke on the phone and emailed frequently throughout the year of planning as she not only directed me to amazing vendors but also eased all stress and worries along the way. My entire family met her the day of the wedding and have nothing but rave reviews. So, if you're looking for someone with tons of connections (no matter what your budget is), hype person, friend, master of timelines, and ability to pull you and your new spouse away for private moments together, look no further---Northwest Weddings is who to work with for your special day.

Brooke + Rick

I can not say enough good things about Alyssa and her team!! She absolutely went above and beyond coordinating our vendors, timeline and day of tasks, even helping our guests. She was very communicative, had great tips and a wonderful attitude. 10/10 recommend.

Kelsey + Sean

CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW AMAZING ALYSSA IS!! Alyssa helped us coordinate a month or two before our big day, and she was so great to work with: patient, kind, and flexible with us from the onset! Then on our big day, she came uber prepared and again, brought the BEST energy to the day. Her and her team were so positive and professional! Alyssa particularly was so helpful in ensuring the operation of our day went off without a hitch and it did with great thanks her! We had a few hiccups happen that day, and I had no idea! Alyssa took immediate care of them and worked out solutions that she knew would work for us - always keeping our vision in mind. I couldn't think of NOT having her there that day, because the flow of the night was executed so great! Everyone needs to work with Alyssa! She'll make it happen to ensure you have the BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE!!!

Kryssa + Michael

Northwest Weddings was the absolute reason why my wedding was the most easy going day of my life! If you are debating on spending extra money for a coordinator, it is 100% worth every penny. Alyssa and her team at Northwest Weddings are professional and communicate appropriately. They did my signage, printed, and brought with. Margaux went above and beyond throughout the day/night; my cake had melted and she made it look like nothing happened. They made my wedding day so enjoyable!

Krystal + Richard

I chose the partial planning package with Alyssa and I could not have planned my wedding without her. She was so helpful with everything, especially with keeping me on track with deadlines and finding vendors. I loved all of the vendors that were recommended for me!! The day of Alyssa and her team were absolutely amazing at setting everything up, making sure the wedding day festivities were all on time, and she came very well prepared with everything a bridal party needed. If you need any help planning your wedding or a day of planner I would definitely go through them!

Molly + Javi

Alyssa and her assistant Leah were truly the best help. I reached out to Alyssa a little more than a year before my wedding and we decided the month of coordination would be the best for me as I already had big vendors booked I just wanted help with everything leading up to the wedding. Alyssa not only helped relieved my worries on not having enough time for everyone to get ready by helping build an amazing cohesive timeline for all of my vendors to follow but she also ensured the wedding was set up exactly the way I envisioned it to look like. 10/10 she was amazing and so happy I was able to work with her.

Shelby + Uly

Alyssa and her team were so helpful, I honestly don’t know what I would have done without them. I chose the month of plan with her and it was the best decision. She answered all my questions and calmed my nerves the second I hired her. Her team made my day an absolute dream!!!

Kelly + Matt

Alyssa was incredibly helpful, professional, friendly, accommodating and poised throughout the entire process. She prioritized making me (the bride) feel taken care of and did so much more than we even expected! I truly feel that I could let go of control and nothing would slip with Alyssa running the show. Thank you so much for being so hard working- I wish everyone had Alyssa's work ethic.

Molly + Danny

Alyssa is the BEST! We hired Alyssa as our day of coordinator. Alyssa is professional, organized and honestly, just a super nice person. She set up our venue exactly how we envisioned and it was perfect! If there were any issues on the night, we have no idea! She connected with our vendors immediately and became the point of contact so that we could enjoy the night. I highly recommend using Northwest Weddings for your planning needs!

Eilidh + Joe

I hired Northwest weddings for day of coordination & rehearsal coordination for my wedding this NYE. Alyssa went above and beyond for us and made our day absolutely perfect. I seriously do not know what I would of done without her. From her vendor management, to making sure everything was perfect the day of - she was constantly on top of her game. Anything I needed, any questions I had, she was there for me. Not only was she the sweetest person to work with but she was confident, professional, and a true miracle worker. Thank you so much Alyssa for everything! Because of you I was able to enjoy the morning of my wedding and be stress free. I would recommend Northwest weddings to everyone!

Stephanie + Dan

THE BEST EVER!!!!! Omg! I can not thank Alyssa and her assistant enough. We hired Alyssa for the Day of our Wedding take care of everything so we were less stressed. She literally handled EVERYTHING! My husbands best man’s pants split before our ceremony & she sewed his pants !!! How crazy. Helped my mother in law get into her dress even. She was professional, sweet and knew exactly what she was doing. Our whole bridal party was so grateful that we had her there. She was in contact with all our vendors before our wedding and of course during. We would have been at a loss if we didn’t have her at our rehearsal practice. Everything was beyond perfect! Thank you thank you!!!!

Holly + Ruben

I hired Alyssa for the month of planning for my wedding. I am from Chicago, and chose to still get married there though I live in Texas now. I was concerned I would need a lot of help leading up to the wedding month as I was planning from out of state. Alyssa was super great at helping me walk through details/ideas for the day. She set up an awesome timeline and made sure everything flowed smoothly for our day! She shared the timeline with my other vendors and worked with them to ensure I didn't have to worry about anything on the day of my wedding. We had a lot of logistics for our wedding becasue of the amount of people coming from out of town. My big ask from her and her team was to ensure everyone made it onto the shuttles from the hotel on time for the ceremony, and from church to the venue after the ceremony. This was not an easy task, and Alyssa and her team knocked it out of the park. We even had a big surprise come up on the day that Alyssa did a seamless job handling! She was always so professional, and super responsive throughout the entire process. I knew I could count on Alyssa to get back with me right away and always be so helpful. If I hadn't had her help on the big day, I would have not been able to enjoy it the same way. I recommend Alyssa and her team 10/10.

Amanda+ Zach

Hiring Northwest Weddings was easily the best money we spent for our wedding. Alyssa and her team were incredibly professional, positive, and truly made sure the day ran smoothly. We did the day-of coordination package and Alyssa checked in with me numerous times before the big day and had all of our information organized and ready to go. We had Sam and Leah the day of our wedding and they couldn't have been more helpful and sweet. They helped with set-up , made sure we were on time throughout the day, and if there were any issues, they took care of it and kept us out of the loop. Do yourself a favor and call Alyssa NOW! :)

Nicole + Sawyer

Northwest Weddings did a wonderful job helping make our wedding the best day ever. If you’re on the fence about getting a wedding coordinator, DO IT! We brought on Northwest Weddings for Month of/Day of coordination (plus rehearsal coordination) and it was easily one of the best if not the best choice. Our wedding was at our family farm and while we had a lot of the planning done, we really needed a team with experience there for us on the day to help out. Alyssa was so helpful to bounce ideas off of and help me stay calm during the final weeks of planning. My fiancé and I got COVID a little over a week before the wedding and Alyssa kept moving on the timeline and helping with vendor conversations while I was getting better before the wedding. Julia was a huge help in running our rehearsal and helping everyone stay focused. Alyssa and Margaux absolutely KILLED it the day of. Alyssa helped us work through a quick rainy day back up plan (the weather managed to stay away!) and was clutch in making sure the event spaces looked beautiful. They both made sure that the schedule went off without a hitch and everything ran smoothly. I can honestly say I didn’t have to lift a finger or worry about any part of the day which really allowed me to enjoy every minute of it. Thanks again team!! 

Allison + Jeremy

Alyssa and her team at Northwest Weddings were absolutely flawless from the day I hired them to the day of the wedding! Whenever I needed assistance or someone to bounce ideas off of, Alyssa would respond so quickly and give her expertise. There were so many little things that I did not have to worry about at all because Alyssa had it covered. She had a running list of all of our day-of items, and timeline. She created the timeline for us and even our venue said that it was perfect! Our florist and officiant raved about her also! The wedding day went absolutely perfectly because of Alyssa and her team. We even had a shuttle issue, where a shuttle and driver did not show and she handled it so well. She did not want to stress me out so I had no idea until the last minute and at that point, Alyssa had already figured out a solution and it was perfect. Our guests and vendors were happy during all of this and my parents were so grateful for Alyssa's handling of the situation. I would recommend Alyssa at Northwest Weddings to ANYONE getting married!

Alyssa was the best day of coordinator I could have asked for! It was so nice to have a go-to-girl leading up to the wedding to answer my questions, set up a timeline, and email vendors! She also made sure the reception was set up exactly how I imagined and kept things running smoothly throughout the night! Thank you!! <3
