Client Stories

Hear what our satisfied clients have to say about us!

Dear Bernadete & Sarah you two were amazing yesterday. Putting out fires probably kept your night interesting, thank you for your professionalism and patience. I can’t thank you enough with helping us with vendors, advice and always helping me stay calm and positive. I knew 7 years ago when I met you that I would have your team help me if I was ever lucky enough.
I bragged and bragged to my now husband and now he understands what I was bragging about. Sarah was a great match connected with her right away and my little girl loved you both.
Once again thank you for everything you and your whole team did for us from set up to clean up;  I will always recommend Serendipity & Co

We couldn't be happier with Bernadette and her amazing talents. Wedding planning became so easy and fun under her guidance and care. Bernadette's experience and knowledge was invaluable to us, especially when it came to choosing vendors. She helped us to add personal details and asked all of the right questions along the way. Our wedding went beyond our expectations and people are still talking about our special day. Not only did we get to know a fantastic planner, but we also gained a wonderful new friend to our family.
With much love,
Ivanka & Frank


P.S- We miss you!

Dear Bernadette

Words can’t describe the experience I’ve had with you. Your truly the most amazing person I have ever met. Your mind works wonders. You took my ideas and went to town and turned them into even bigger and better ideas. I couldn’t have done this without you. I was so easy going and laidback, I let you take the reigns and go nuts.
The whole planning process with you, 23 months, was a breeze!!! You understood our desires and our wishes. You kept us calm and we definitely had fun...(and rosé). Your the best out there. I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for me and Kevin. You gave us our dream wedding. Your not just our wedding planner... your family!
Thank you to you and Rute for everything!!! I truly mean it. We love you both!
You are the best and will always be the best!
Your heart is truly in this... this was definitely your calling!

What can I say about team Serendipity... they are an amazing team! People say why get a wedding planner or coordinator for the day and the reason why is because you might dream of your wedding but putting it together isn’t something you can fit into your schedule the day of your wedding. These ladies are absolutely amazing. Team Melissa and Natalie made all our dreams come true. They came to the rescue for everything, anything we asked they did for us. I couldn’t imagine our wedding day without them. They kept me totally sane and really helped me enjoy every minute of the day without any stress or anxiety. I highly recommend a planner or coordinator and I highly recommend Serendipity & Co services for your wedding day! They are professionals and amazing, caring and honest. Thank you again ladies for everything! Alex and myself love you girls for everything you did! Xoxo

Bernadette, 

I have to thank you again! Honestly you exceeded every one of our expectations. I'm in awe, our wedding was that beautiful!!! You have a gift! Not many people can do what you did and every one of your suggestions from the vendors were on point!!! Your staff is fantastic as well, so attentive and calm, it was so nice to have and see such a well oiled team working so flawlessly together. I know our wedding set up was a lot of work for you but  I hope through it all you were able to still enjoy some of it. Love you!

Bernadette, 

Jesse & I are so thankful to have had you be a part of our wedding. You made everything feel a lot less stressful. Your care and attention to all of the details was everything we hoped for.  It's not common to find someone that takes such personal enjoyment and passion for what they do but you really show how much you care.  We can't thank you enough!! Hopefully our paths with cross again.

Bernadette, 

We appreciate all of the planning and behind the scenes work that made our wedding day the best it could be!  You stopped at nothing to make sure Erick and I had the most incredible day of our lives. Nothing I can say could translate the gratitude  we have for you, your team, your execution and delivery from the months leading up to and especially the day of. 5 stars isn't a limit that could capture all you have done but for those that know me best know that when I say you are the best wedding planner we could have ever asked for!!! I mean it!!

Thank you for making the entire process fun

Thank you does not begin to cover the gratitude and appreciation we have for Bernadette and her Serendipity girls.  We had the pleasure of working with our amazing wedding planner for two years and she was worth every penny! She made the planning process incredibly smooth and stress-free.  Her passion in this industry truly reflects in her work and experience.  Everything on the day of our wedding was perfect. We were absolutely speechless when Bernadette revealed the venue to us.  She really made our vision came true!

Where do I even begin to explain or describe how amazing Serendipity & Co. truly is. There was only one regret I had for my big day & that was not having Bernadette & her team help me plan everything from the beginning. I was at least smart enough to have them for the month of.  Having two wedding ceremonies and one reception over the course of two days is no easy feat, especially when one of those ceremonies is completely out of your comfort zone. 

Beginning with Bernadette, she was so warm and sweet, I instantly was comfortable with her and trusted her immediately. I initially met with Bernadette to go over what my planning needs were. I was so impressed with her honesty and expertise, she obviously knows what she's doing & is pretty great at it. That was proven over & over again during the month before the wedding & of  course the day of. She put out all the fires & her presence on the day instantly made me feel at ease. Not to mention that woman can spit out an accurate itinerary in less than 10 minutes, which is quite a gift. From fixing the bouquets when I wasn't impressed by them to getting the correct colour of corsage when it came wrong, she's superwoman. 

I was also lucky enough to have Natalie on my team. I must say she doesn't miss a beat. She was with us every step of the way. She kept us on time and in order, which is never easy when you're dealing with a bunch of stressed out yet excited people and their vendors. That kit the girls carry around on the big day is definitely a lifesaver. Natalie was always willing to help out with whatever we needed on our wedding day whether it was continuously helping me switch from my heels to my moccasins or keeping the ring bearer focused. Ashley was also on our team and honestly she was so sweet. She took care of so many of the small details that often times are overlooked because it's more behind the scenes, especially when it came to setting up and making sure things were in place for the reception. Last but not least Anita, she stepped in when Bernadette was unable to be there for the first ceremony and honestly she was so genuinely nice. Throughout that morning she made sure I was okay and was able to help guests who also weren't familiar with the type of ceremony. I couldn't imagine having any other planner for my big day. 

Serendipity & Co is definitely the way to go. Their couples are the priority and their vast knowledge of the industry & vendor recommendations were the best. 

We didn't regret anyone they recommended to us & wish we had asked for their advice on others. They're so good at what they do it actually made us sad that the wedding was over & there'd be no more emails and meetings. Getting to work with Bernadette & her team was one of the highlights of the whole wedding process. Who they are as people & what they do for their clients is invaluable, we were so lucky to have them part of our big day!

I don’t think I would have been so calm throughout my entire wedding process if it wasn’t for Serendipity! I didn’t worry about a thing and any hick ups that had happened was all taken care of and I didn’t have to worry about a thing ! I was very skeptical about getting a wedding planner, but I was oh so very happy I did! It allowed me to enjoy the wedding process and the actual wedding day! Sarah was amazing and so accommodating and Bernadette had some amazing ideas that helped bring my vision to light! Definitely worth it just to enjoy your special day! Thank you again Team Serendipity

To Bernadette and the team of Serendipity & Co

Thank you so much for all that you did to help make our wedding day so perfect.  You were there every step of the way and you guided us through all of our big ( and little) decisions.  There are not enough words to describe just how thankful and grateful we are for everything. You did an amazing job putting everything together and taking care of those unexpected bumps along the way.

Dear Bernadette & the Serendipity Dream Team,


With the Holiday Season quickly approaching, I thought you should know that I feel truly blessed to have shared the best experience of my life with you this past year. Nick and I have nothing but the utmost respect for you and your brilliant team. Our wedding day was unbelievable - from start to finish - and I owe so much of the credit to you.

In the months leading up to our wedding day, you were so supportive of me and my ideas. You took on such a heavy workload because you were dedicated to executing my vision. Believe me when I say, you exceeded my expectations. Weeks later and we are still receiving so many compliments! What a production! Hands down the most spectacular event I have ever attended - I still can't believe that it was OURS.

Looking back at photos and videos I can honestly say that everything went so smoothly. It takes a certain type of person to go above and beyond for a stranger. I know I was your client but you made me feel like family. You should be so proud of the ladies that represented you in your absence. They were professional, reliable, and above all, talented.

I wish you so much love and happiness this Holiday. God bless you all.

xo,

To Our Queen B,

This thank you e-mail cannot possibly contain enough words to express our appreciation and gratitude for everything you’ve done for us. When it came time to select a wedding planner, we thank our lucky stars we found you! You’re truly one of a kind! We’re still in awe when we look back on everything you did for us before, during and after the wedding. Without your help our special day would not have been the picture-perfect event we always dreamed of. Your planning, preparation, and attention to detail was amazing. We appreciate you more than words can say. You're phenomenal! I don't know how we would've done it all without you. On the numerous times we've been asked if we remember anything from our wedding day, the answer has always been that we remember every moment. Thank you so much for providing us with support with all of our questions and last-minute changes. You were more than our wedding planner, you were our friend (and you still are! haha). I’m so grateful for our friendship and I look forward to getting together more often now! We still can’t get over what a spectacular wedding it was! We both had such a fantastic time and it was all such a dream come true. We received tons of calls/texts from our guests after the wedding saying that it was their favorite wedding and theme they’ve ever been to. Everything went off without even one flaw. From the ceremony, to the photo shoot, to the reception. It was all organized and timed perfectly; all thanks to you and your team. You helped us make our wedding unique and one-of-a-kind. The evening progressed so smoothly and on schedule that we were able to relax and truly enjoy the magic of our special day. Guests were coming up to us throughout the night saying how great and on top of things you were. We’re so thankful for all of your hard work, organization and patience. You stopped at nothing to make sure Orest and I had the most incredible day of our lives. Nothing I can say could translate the gratitude we have for you, your team, your execution, and delivery from the months leading up to especially the day of. 5 stars isn't a limit that could capture all you have done, but for those that know me best (and you too perhaps after this journey), know that when I say you are the best wedding planner we could have ever asked for, I mean it without a doubt. Your talent far exceeds anything I know. If anyone is looking for a planner or coordinator that will guide you through the entire planning process and see through the day of with both the highest professionalism and finesse, I promise you will not go wrong with Bernadette and her Serendipity & Co. staff! Best decision we made.

P.S. A huge THANK YOU for that thoughtful and amazing surprise you planned out for me!

We wish you and your team nothing by the best and lots of success! We Love You!

Team #OrestInTheForest

Bern,

Thank you for everything that you did to make our wedding come true. Thank you for bending over backwards, for all the running around, for stressing for worrying, and for all of the work that you and your team did. 

You are truly amazing, you have no limits to what you have to do to make us happy. Thank you for always being there and for working as hard as you do. We are truly grateful. Everything was beyond beautiful. It was above and beyond my expectations. God is good you know. Everything does happen for a reason.

Hello Bernadette,


I cannot even begin to explain how important your work was on our wedding day. All of your team was honestly absolutely unbelievable Sarah, Natalie and Jessica were a blessing and I do not have words to express how much their presence was valued on our special day.


From having lots of umbrellas and soaking up the rain to solving an allergy issue on the bus, having EVERYTHING in that emergency kit for myself, Joel, our parents and huge bridal party. We thank you from the bottom of my heart !!! Hiring you was one of the best choices we made for our wedding.

Thank you thank you thank you

Hello Bernadette,

I just want to say thank you for everything that you did to make the wedding of our dreams become a reality, it was everything I dreamed of and more!! I couldn't have asked for a better day!!

Your attention to detail, from our seating cards, favor table, our calendar set up to everything inside the hall! All your added touches definitely topped the icing on the cake!! I couldn't be happier with the way everything turned out!! Everyone loved it!

I knew from the beginning I definitely made the right choice! I couldn't imagine my wedding without you ladies!! Not only were you my planner but I also gained a new friend! I love you!! Thanks again for everything!!! Xoxo

Hi Bernadette, Natalie and Sarah,

Our wedding was beyond expectation beyond what we could imagine. Needless to say this was made possible because we have you “Serendipity & Co Inc. “. Every Guest at the wedding had to say that I was the most relaxed Bride and both Flynn and myself had a lot of fun..and guess what I had as a response...? How would I be worried or tensed? Because every little detail was taking care by Bernadette, Sarah and Natalie.” I couldn’t thank you enough for helping Flynn and myself on our Big Day with such flawless coordination and perfection. In such a short notice you helped us by not hesitating to be a decorator and doing up our ceremony décor, cake table and putting together centrepieces and list goes on...it looked spectacular. Most attractive thing about Serendipity team is they work with us as a family and not just wedding planners. We consider ourselves blessed to have the privilege to work with your team so talented and professional.

Thank you for making our day a beautiful memory to cherish.

Bernadette,
 
Where do I begin.  As myself and Paolo look back at our wedding day there is only one word that comes to mind and that is perfection.  Paolo and I are so grateful that you were gifted to us as an engagement gift.   Our wedding day was absolutely flawless and the best day of our lives!  Making our day what it was would not have been possible without the Serendipity dream team (yourself, Jessica and Sarah). 
 
Bernadette, you were there for me throughout the whole process.  I have dreamt of my wedding day since I was a little girl but when it came to the actual execution of my wedding I was at a loss.  I was very overwhelmed and didn’t know where to begin.  You took my vision and made it into a reality, and you did this all while keeping both myself and Paolo to our budget.
 
I can’t thank you enough for all the meetings, the phone calls, the late night text messages, and for calming me down from my monthly melt downs.  You relieved so much stress from what was a very stressful time. 
 
You and your team allowed me to enjoy the day before my wedding as you girls took care of all my last minute drop offs and hall décor.  On the actual wedding day, both myself and Paolo were very calm.  We could afford to be calm because we knew we had Serendipity & Co. in our corner taking care of any issues which may have arose. 
 
Bernadette we cannot thank you, Jessica and Sarah enough for all your collective efforts  to make our wedding day a true success.  I am still receiving phone calls from guests on how beautiful our wedding turned out. 
 
You were not only our planner but now someone myself and Paolo both consider as our friend.
 
Our wedding day was more beautiful then we could have ever imagined.
 
Thank you

Daniela & Paolo

My husband and I feel blessed to have been introduced to Bernadette and her team. Our wedding day was nothing short of the best day of our lives. Making the day what it was, would not have been possible without the help of Bernadette, Natalie and Sarah.
The meetings, late night phone calls and text massages, when I couldn't make up my mind (which happened a lot). They helped with all the details, big and small. They even put the favours together for us. These ladies were there for it all. They really are the "dream team".
We knew we could count on them no matter what. The day before our wedding, they were at my parent's house to pick up every little thing that had to go to the hall. The day of, Natalie was by my side the whole way through. Anything I needed, she was there. Even before I knew I needed something, she was already there with it. Meanwhile Bernadette and Sarah were hard at work at the hall setting up, making sure everything came together.
A week before our big day, tragedy struck my husband and I when we lost his Mother unexpectedly. It was, and still is devastating. What really stood out to us was that even in the middle of their busy wedding season, with everything going on, Bernadette and her team took the time to come out and pay their respects at her funeral. That truly touched us both. It wasn't easy to pick ourselves back up and go through with the wedding, but we knew that that's what his Mother would have wanted.
We cannot thank you and the girls enough. Our wedding day was more than we could have possibly imagined, and a whole lot of it we owe to Serendipity & Co ♡
(And that rhymes lol)

You ladies rock!
Love always & forever
Mr. & Mrs. Luz

Natalie, Jessica, & Bernadette,

I just wanted to send an email to say a quick thank you for all of the hard work that went into ensuring that our day went perfectly on Saturday! We had the most wonderful day and thanks to all of you I was stress free and was able to enjoy every second of it! You are all amazing and I really enjoyed having you there with us to celebrate!

I personally want to thank Serendipity & Co. for everything they did for my wedding. I decided on day of coordination for my July 16, 2016 wedding and I was very happy I did. Bernadette is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is a ball of energy who is very organized and gets things done quickly and accurately. I also had the pleasure of having Teresa as my shadow for the day and she was amazing! She was well equipped for any mishap that may have happened throughout the day. She even had a pair of emergency flip flops when my shoes started hurting me. I would recommend to any bride to be to hire Serendipity & Co for their upcoming wedding. You will not be disappointed.

Serendipity & Co. helped make our wedding day beyond perfect! From the initial meeting with Bernadette and then Lindsay as well, I knew that I could trust these ladies. I planned half of our wedding myself and after enough stress we decided to hire them to continue the planning process. Lindsay walked me through everything and ensured it was perfect and what we wanted. She helped me find vendors, make decisions that I did not want to make myself and contacted everyone involved in our day. The month before the wedding and leading up to the big day, Lindsay took care of any important details. For the actual wedding day, we had Lindsay and Jessica with us and I have no clue if anything went wrong because it was all taken care of. They were both amazing and I am so happy we decided to hire them. On the actual wedding day I realized how many little details are actually involved and thank God I didn't have to figure those out on my own. I was completely stress free from the minute I woke up. I felt so relaxed knowing that I didn't have to worry about a thing (which isn't normal for me). I definitely recommend them!

No words could describe how incredible these women are !!! Bernadette,Teresa and Sarah were amazing the day of and even up until our wedding day.  They are worth every penny spent. It was the best thing me and my husband ever did was hire Serendipity & Co for our wedding !!! Everything about the day was perfect.  My husband and I really got to enjoy our day without any problem, these ladies took care of EVERYTHING .

Thank you again, wish I could do it over again

I got married June 25, 2016 and was proposed to on March 13, 2015. I began planning my wedding a few months after our engagement which began with figuring out which day and month we would like to be married in; that was the easy part considering how in advance I was looking to get married the church and hall was able to fulfill my preferred date. I then began to tackle things on my own by looking up a list of things I needed to do in order to plan my wedding and not forget anything. I knew that on the day of my wedding I would not want to worry about anything except enjoying my day and I loved how organized my cousins wedding which was also co-ordinated by Serendipity & Co. I immediately got a hold of Bernadette and booked her for the day of my wedding for day-of co-ordination. I attended the meeting with my hall and everything was so far looking great, I knew what I wanted as my theme colours to be and attended a meeting with the hall linen and decorating company and sat down with their owner to discuss my vision. I left that meeting in tears because everything I wanted was shot down and I was not happy with the lack of help they offered me in trying to get what I wanted my wedding day to look like. On the drive home my fiance re-assured me we would figure it out and told me to get a hold of Bernadette. I e-mailed her and told her I had an unsuccessful meeting and was devastated. She told me that everything would be okay and for me to come in to see her and we would extend our contract and she would help me with the decor part of the planning as ell. I sat down with Bernadette a few days later and we spoke about what I wanted and liked and she went with me back to the decor company and told them what we wanted and what was possible to be done. This time the meeting went differently; they were able to fulfill everything I wanted and recommended different things I hadn’t even considered which I loved. Bernadette introduced me to some of her vendors such as Agnes her florist and Christine the stationary expert. I got great prices for being a Serendipity bride and best of all throughout the whole planning process Bernadette worked within my budget, was there for me every step of the way and calmed me down when I felt overwhelmed. I have to say if it wasn’t for Bernadette I don’t think I would have been as calm on my wedding day as I was. Bernadette was there for me all the way from planning, moments before walking down the aisle and by my side as I thanked her and her wonderful team for a successful wedding day and night in my speech. She is my Queen B, my fairy godmother and a great friend still. I have recommended her to at least two people who have already signed with her and are getting married very soon! She goes above and beyond anyone else in this business and that’s what makes her worth it! And you won’t have to sell any limbs to get her either!

I got married June 18,2016 and couldn't ask for a better day for my wedding. The best planners!. They go over and beyond to make your dreams come true. My wedding was more than I ever expected. I had two different ceremonies and how they made it all happen in one day and so perfectly organized. Bernadette and her team is just perfect. They are friendly, kind and really just focus on making the day and planning process the best it can ever be. A friendship forever built, thank you for making my wedding such an amazing day and memorable one!!!

We are extremely happy that we chose Serendipity & Co. to plan our once in a lifetime moment. It took 2.5 years to plan our forever and a day beginning but it was more than we could have ever imaged or dreamt of. When my husband and I walked into our Pow Wow Meeting with Bernadette, the only thing we knew for sure was our colour scheme which was reflected in an astonishing bouquet full of vibrant colours by Rachel Clingen, the rest were merely random ideas that required details to make sense as one. Having a unique wedding was really important to us. With Bernadette’s guidance we were able to personalize our washrooms by wrapping our stalls and creating a toiletry basket for our guests, turned Bernadette’s unique washroom mirror into a Personalized Bar Menu,  used her Flower Pot Stand to hold our anniversary Piñata…No wish was too big, she went above and beyond to make it all happen! Not only was she amazing pre-wedding, BUT on our wedding our entire team (Teresa, Sarah, Bernadette) were extraordinary. Not only did Bernadette and Teresa sew me into my dress, they helped our bridal party and parents with anything they needed: dress stains, bra straps, dirty shoes, EVERYTHING.  Our long awaited reception reveal was breathtaking. It’s one thing to talk about ideas, colours and details BUT it’s another to see it all come together. Forever and Always we will remember walking into our reception and seeing it for the first time: white draped walls, abundance of Flowers, personalized dance floor, sparkle, colour… the works! Bernadette helped create our perfect picture, magazine worthy wedding, which we will never forget.  Thank you for make the first day of our lives one to remember!

Love the Serendipity team !! 

Bernadette, Natalie and Sara(h) were a special part of my wedding day! Bernadette and I met a year and a few months before my wedding when I was overwhelmed at where to start- with the fear every bride has: having never done this before, that I'd make some big mistakes! Upon our first meeting, Bern had put me at ease with her knowledge about venues, vendors, budgeting, and overall, her love for weddings and expertise at planning them! It took no time to book her for her full planning package. She was with me every step of the way - up until the wedding day!

Bernadette was there for it all - the surprise requests from family members, the surprise phone calls from vendors or venues, loading all my 45 centerpieces to the hall the day before, attaching tags to bonbonniere, easing my last minute stress, sending me scheduling and booking detail meetings for me, giving me advice on the best way to execute my vision, answering all my texts and calls promptly, and just being positive! The weeks leading up to the wedding I was working and Bernadette was running around dropping of payments and finalizing details with vendors as I got to focus on important things like enjoying visitors from Italy and getting excited for the events to come (maybe I was more focused on the honeymoon the week of, but who isn't by that point!?) Either way- Bern had it all taken care of.

Another great touch to this team was that every angle of your wedding day is covered! Natalie was with me, my husband and the bridal party for the entire wedding day (from my house to the hall) helping the day run smoothly (loading the bus, contacting vendors, organizing whatever she had to while we had our fun!), AND SHE HAD A SMILE ON HER FACE THE WHOLE TIME! I just love her. And Sarah was behind the scenes at the hall all day making sure everything was according to plan- THIS TEAM JUST HAD IT ALL UNDER CONTROL!

Looking back on my day, I don't know what I would have done without the Serendipity team. I really don't. Thank you guys so much.

Hello Bernadette,

It seems like the wedding day was just yesterday. We just got back for our honeymoon to Fiji! Thanks for connecting us with Marie -- she helped us plan that amazing honeymoon!!

Jorge and I would like to express our deepest thanks to you and your entire team for making our wedding day so absolutely special. We were able to truly enjoy our stress-free wedding day because we knew you were behind the scenes ensuring that everything was running smoothly. You and your team helped transport the flowers set up the post church brunch for the guest, and even sewed a hole in the Maid of Honours dress, not once, but twice -- what are the chances it would happen twice, but it did and Serendipity was there to the rescue with needle and thread. The Serendipity team added a special touch to our venue with beautiful accessories that made our venue sparkle and shine all over, just what we had envisioned!

Thank you once again for all your advice, hard work and expertise!
It was an absolute pleasure working with your Team and I can see why you have the title of Top Choice Award Winner - Top Wedding Planner Mississauga !! :)

xoxo,

Bernadette and Lindsay,

As I look back on pictures of my wedding, I am still in awe of how the day unfolded and I know that it had a lot to do with having you two in our corner. After our engagement, I became overwhelmed at the idea of planning the biggest party of my life. Unlike most girls, I have not dreamed about my wedding since I was five, had no idea what vision I had for the day or where to even start.

I entered your office like a deer in headlights, anxious and nervous about the whole process, but you reassured me that everything would work out. You were right. I know I was not the easiest client because of how indecisive I can be. I knew what I didn't want, but articulating what I did want was a bit of a challenge.  With your patience and expertise you were able to help me create a day that was beyond my high expectations. Being so indecisive meant that shopping around for reliable vendors would cause me to stress out, and doubt if I am making the right choice. Luckily, you came with a list of preferred vendors who you trusted and worked within our budget. You helped us find venues that didn't feel "cookie cutter", introduced us to an amazing caterer and added details to our decor that just blew everyone away. You were punctual to every appointment and always so professional. Your passion for what you do was so obvious in every single meeting.

So, after a year and a half of planning, the big day had finally arrived and I was so relieved that you two were there because I actually enjoyed my night and felt present at my own wedding. I didn't have to worry about anything because I knew you guys were there making sure everything was going according to plan.  Even when there were hiccups, you dealt with them quickly and professionally and I thank you for it.  I had guests calling me two days before the wedding changing their RSVP which meant I had to reconfigure the seating chart. Doing this two days before my wedding meant that I was bound to make a mistake, and sure enough I did. These mistakes came to light as people are trying to find their seats at our reception. Luckily you took control of the situation, dealt with some overbearing family members, and found the correct seat for those displaced guests. Meanwhile, I am going through my receiving line, none the wiser of the crisis you averted.

At the end of the night, you gathered all my belongings and packed up everything for me. I can't express how grateful I am for that because when you are exhausted and running on pure adrenaline, the last thing you are thinking about it packing up your cake knife. The wedding and honeymoon have come and gone and guests are still complimenting us on how beautiful the wedding was, and what a great time they had. I know that these compliments need to be shared with you two because it was with your guidance that we created a day that our guests will never forget. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

Hi Bernadette! I just wanted to let you know that our wedding was absolutely amazing. And I have you and the girls to thank for helping me pull my vision together. I am so happy you pointed out Spencer’s as a venue to look at. It was exactly what I wanted, and after all my OCD details and changes, it turned in to a very dreamy and magical event. I can't thank you enough for helping me with everything. I will be telling everyone about you. To Natalie and Melissa..wow! Fantastic. Melissa was amazing with helping me out with everything at the house, to sewing up my dress to making sure my needs were met and even entertaining my daughter. And Natalie...super! She was always around, looking after everything, checking in on me, and packing everything up at the end of the night. Amazing!

I loved working with all of you. I want to get married again just so that I can plan and work with you! I hope your mom had a fantastic evening too. I sent some flowers for you and your mom with Natalie. Anyways, you and the team are absolutely amazing. I can't say enough. All of my immediate family commented on how great of a job you did. I could not have asked for a better day. And the dress ripping didn't really even phase me. This was as close to perfection as anyone can get.

With love and thanks,

Krista and Chris

Hi Bernadette, Thank you VERY much for all of the hard work and dedication that you put into our wedding to make it the perfect day! From the time that you put into the small details, to the vendors that you connected us with, to the day of coordination- we could not have asked for more!

We have had so many guests comment on how smoothly - that is thanks to you and your wonderful team! Thanks for helping us make our winter wedding magical. We will definitely recommend Serendipity & Co. to our family and friends:)

All the best,

Hi Bernadette, We are back now and I wanted to say my most sincere thanks! You and your team are absolutely amazing and helped make our wedding the most special day! I had a vision in my head but when I walked into the church and then into the hall it took my breath away! You are and have an amazing company and I will most definitely be recommending you for upcoming weddings! You made our dreams come true. I’ll send you some pictures once I get them back as well.

Thanks again with warmest regards,

Bernadette,

Where do I begin? As myself and Paolo look back at our wedding day there is only one word that comes to mind and that is perfection.  Paolo and I are so grateful that you were gifted to us as an engagement gift.   Our wedding day was absolutely flawless and the best day of our lives!  Making our day what it was would not have been possible without the Serendipity dream team (yourself, Jessica and Sarah). 

Bernadette, you were there for me throughout the whole process.  I have dreamt of my wedding day since I was a little girl but when it came to the actual execution of my wedding I was at a loss.  I was very overwhelmed and didn’t know where to begin. You took my vision and made it into a reality, and you did this all while keeping both myself and Paolo to our budget.

I can’t thank you enough for all the meetings, the phone calls, the late night text messages, and for calming me down from my monthly meltdowns. You relieved so much stress from what was a very stressful time. 

You and your team allowed me to enjoy the day before my wedding as you girls took care of all my last minute drop offs and hall décor. On the actual wedding day, both Paolo and I were very calm.  We could afford to be calm because we knew we had Serendipity & Co. in our corner taking care of any issues which may have arisen. 

Bernadette, we cannot thank you, Jessica and Sarah enough for all your collective efforts  to make our wedding day a true success.  I am still receiving phone calls from guests on how beautiful our wedding turned out. 

You were not only our planner but now someone myself and Paolo both consider as our friend.

Our wedding day was more beautiful then we could have ever imagined.

Thank you!
