Hiring Dumi was the best decision we made during our entire wedding planning process. She shattered my expectations by not only being our fearless leader the day of but the thought, preparation, and organization she put into everything in the months leading up was over and beyond. She has a natural ability to lead, and her instincts are spot on. Combine that with the fact that she loves what she does; you can’t go wrong by having her as your wedding coordinator. Our event was no easy feat as we had to make a venue change just days prior due to the storms in Northern California on 12/31. Dumi’s skillset and command to get our crew into gear for those changes were invaluable. All the while, she helped me remain calm. I had full trust in her from start to finish, and not only did she wow us when she left the evening of the wedding, all of our guests cheered and clapped for her at the end of the night. She is the real deal, and any future bride & groom would be so lucky to have her in their corner.
Planning a wedding is stressful, and what they all say is true: It goes by so fast! I was looking for someone to help with day-of coordination, and Dumi went above and beyond for me. Dumi is a thorough professional who helped my wedding go more smoothly than my wildest dreams could have imagined. Hiring her is the best choice I made in the arduous wedding planning process. She was personally invested in my success, was constantly there for me, and took over many responsibilities as the wedding day approached, allowing me to ease into the headspace of "bride" on the actual day. Having her there was like having a security blanket; someone to go to bat for me, to make sure everything was the way I wanted it, and even helped indecisive ol' me make the right choices to ensure a smooth day. She also brought along two fabulous, sweet, attentive helpers at no additional cost to me. If you're on the fence about a coordinator, look no further. Dumi is a genuine, attentive, thorough professional. Thank you Dumi and crew!
Do yourself a big favor. Stop your wedding planning/ coordination search and just hire Dumi right now. You will NOT regret it. Dumi was my day-of wedding coordinator for my wedding on 10/15/22 and the day could not have gone more smoothly. I literally would not change a single thing about my wedding day and Dumi and her team are to thank. Dumi was the first to get back to me out of the five coordinators I reached out to and that level of responsiveness and enthusiasm locked me in. Her level of responsiveness and enthusiasm never diminished. She never once left me hanging and she brought great energy to every meeting, the rehearsal, and the day of. What I appreciated most about Dumi is her confidence. Any time I had a question, she let me know what she's found to work best from her experience. This made planning very straightforward for me with very little second guessing. Her confidence kept me in reality and on budget. Her confidence allowed us to have an efficient, effective rehearsal and therefore a super fun rehearsal dinner. Her confidence commanded respect from my vendors. Her confidence never overshadowed my needs or dreams. Her confidence gave me confidence in my choices and in letting go on my big day. If you need any more convincing, I'll tell you that Dumi STOPPED TRAFFIC in the middle of downtown San Francisco so that my photographer could get an epic shot of my husband and I in the street. That sums up Dumi as a wedding coordinator. She ensures that your day is YOUR day and do whatever it takes. I cannot thank Dumi enough for all of her hard work and dedication. I was told by multiple wedding guests that it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. Thank you, Dumi! You are beyond amazing at what you do.
Dumi is an excellent choice for a coordinator. She is very responsive and extremely professional. She is definitely someone you can rely on for making quick decisions and ensuring that vendors follow through. For our wedding we had a last minute venue change that caught us off guard only 2 weeks before the day. Dumi was fast to respond to the issue by helping us in coordinating a last minute venue and in ensuring all vendors were informed and prepared for that change. The wedding was fabulous and exceeded our expectations!!
If you're thinking of hiring a wedding coordinator, LOOK NO FURTHER. Dumi is everything I could have asked for and more. Having Dumi as our coordinator was the BEST decision my husband and I could have made. From the beginning, Dumi was extremely responsive and professional. We had a zoom call early on in the planning process and Dumi helped me tie up so many loose ends and helped me with questions I wouldn't have even thought to ask my vendors. She completely took the time to read through my contracts and was so meticulous in ensuring all communication among vendors was clear and concise. Dumi attended a venue walkthrough with me and my husband and created the most amazing timeline for the day of my wedding to keep our day running smooth. Two days before my wedding my videographer fell through due to Covid. Dumi was ON IT and helped me find many qualified videographers within my budget literally within hours. She literally came to my rescue and helped me stay calm and stress-free. On the day of the wedding, Dumi was so helpful with keeping our wedding party on schedule. She was there to address every need and issue that came up on the day and literally left me stress-free and able to enjoy every moment of my wedding day. Dumi was quick to come up with solutions for problems that arose during the day and put out mini-fires that I had no idea about. I feel eternally grateful for A Gordon Event for making my wedding day one to remember forever.
Dumi and her team were enjoyable to work with. She scheduled a few meetings during the month prior to the wedding day to make sure things were in order. She also reminded me of things to do which I otherwise would have forgotten. She was quick to respond both by email and text. On the wedding day, she and her team took care of vendor coordination and decoration set up in the reception with minimal to no input from me, which was a big help. Would recommend Dumi and her team if you need a wedding day coordinator!
