Amazing, awesome, wonderful, beautiful is just a few words to describe my wedding thanks to Dora. I don't even know where to begin. Dora and her husband have been a true blessing. They took on my wedding 2 months prior to the event. She went above and beyond and I seriously mean that, she did printing, put together orders for my candy table, rented decor and that's just to name a few things she did. She kept everything organized and kept me clam every step of the way. She listened to me when I'm sure I wasn't the easiest to deal with lol. That was all prior to the event which was the tip of the iceberg. The event was seriously incredible. Dora did EVERYTHING I mean everything I could have dreamed of and more. It may sound cliche, but I seriously wouldn't have got through this without her and I truly mean that from the bottom of my heart. The detail she put into everything and the hard work was beyond my expectation. At first a lot of brides like myself think they can do it on their own, they think they can't afford a wedding planner well I'm here to tell you Dora can figure out a way to work herself into your budget and give you the best day of your life. I can't wait to post pictures of just the decor to show you the type of wedding you can have with Dora!!
I have a saying. Everything happens for a reason and there is a reason why things happen. The venue we had our wedding had a day of coordinator they recommended. We had two meetings with her and were on the way to sign the contract. It did not happen. I decided to go in a different direction and was referred to Dora Johnson aka Weddings By Dora. I believe things with the first coordinator did not happen because it was meant for Dora to come into our life.
I only hired her for day of coordination but she went above and beyond that role. Dora played the role of mom, a friend, a mentor, and a financial advisor. I called her to cry, vent, scream, laugh, or even just for reassurance. I loved the fact that Dora could go with the Rhea flow so well. I changed my mind a lot (as my maid of honor would say), I would randomly text or email things, AND I expected for everyone to remember everything I said the first time. She would just be like ok and have me explain. She reminded me of stuff I wanted and forgot about. This meant the most because of my anxiety and fear of not being able to have things a certain way. We had a laundry list of issues with the venue and Dora was there every step of the way. If wrote everything she did I could write a book. Trust my word…. She is amazing.
I talked to Dora after my husband and I came back from our honeymoon and she told me that I am forever part of her family. I truly believe that. We planned this wedding for 9 months and we became so close. Dora thank you doesn’t even express how grateful I am for the wonderful job you did. How you pulled the day together I will never know.
Dora gave me the wedding of my dreams. She took the stress and pain of planning a wedding and made it look effortless. She allowed me to enjoy my wedding day without worrying about the little things. Wedding planners are worth it, if you don't have one you should call Dora!
Father of the Bride
I cannot say enough great things about weddings by Dora. Her service was impeccable, food was amazing and the backyard where we held the wedding was gorgeous! One great thing about Dora's is that she was really flexible and accommodating. She recommended where to purchase the wedding cake which was absolutely gorgeous. The backdrop with the pool was stunning. She selected the perfect wine to match the occasion. Will definitely recommend her service.
I recently married my wife in September of this year and I could not imagine a more special day and that was all thanks to Weddings by Dora. She gave us the total package from helping us select our venue, outfits, color and even menu. We selected the full service package and had monthly meetings until our wedding day. She provided an extensive schedule and planner to keep us on track. There was no detail or option she did not present or provide us. Even when we had questions outside of our meeting time, she was always available to assist or would respond back as soon as possible. I will be recommending her to all my friends that are engaged or anyone having a large scale party that needs planning. She went above and beyond on my wedding day which is something I will never forget. I did not have to lift a finger the day of and I would not have it any other way. Thank you so much for all of your hard work, Weddings by Dora, we will be sure to use you again for our big 20 vow renewal!
