"I truly wish there were enough words to express how phenomenal Tosca is. We had the pleasure of working with Tosca a few years ago for my sister's wedding, and she was one of the first phone calls we made when we got engaged. We had a very large, very complex wedding day that involved two ceremonies and moving 400 people through four different spaces throughout the day. The wedding day was more beautiful and fun than I ever could imagine, and it was flawless from start to finish. Throughout the entire process Tosca was SO organized and kept all of us up to date with the latest changes and updates. I truly do not know how she remembered and organized all our requests and updates, but she executed our vision perfectly. In addition, she was able to blend all of our opinions, personalities, and styles beautifully and help us find common ground without anyone feeling like they had to compromise or settle. Tosca was constantly looking for ways for us to be more efficient with our budget. She genuinely wants you to have the day you envision. With Tosca, she makes the entire wedding planning process fun, seamless, and exciting so when you get to the big day you can enjoy every moment."
NOELLE + ALLEN
"Tosca kept things running smoothly even as the venue went through four event coordinators in less than a year, reminding each new person of the promises made by the predecessors. She knows which vendors perform well and which costs are reasonable. Through two weddings in eight years (including one same-gender) we haven't been able to throw anything at her that she hasn't been able to solve with grace, good humor, creativity, and professionalism. Both weddings have been called "best ever" by our guests."

"There are not enough good words to say about Tosca and her team. She made my wedding absolutely fabulous, understood my vision from our very first meeting, made my mother feel calm throughout (as it was the three of us planning), always tried to get us the "most bang for our buck", and in turn we had the best wedding ever. People are still talking about it, months later and I know it is because Tosca was such a big part of making sure everything was perfect and beautiful. She is so knowledgeable and so experienced, that you cannot help but trust her implicitly. She is understanding, warm, NEVER flustered and always available to talk and counsel - which is so very valuable in someone planning one of the biggest days in your life. She is an absolute professional with a wonderful spirit and personality. You can read and look at all the magazines, blogs, and Pinterest boards you want, but Tosca thinks of things you never thought of and makes it all come to life. I cannot imagine my wedding without Tosca."
SUSAN - BRIDE
"I don't think I can convey in writing how absolutely amazing Tosca is, both as a wedding planner and as a person. My mom and I both worked closely with Tosca and throughout the process consistently remarked to each other how thankful we were we'd found her. Tosca is extremely organized and has no shame in hounding vendors to ensure everyone does what they need to do in the appropriate timeframe. In addition, she brings many years of experience from which she is able to give invaluable advice, while not being overbearing about it. Tosca took care of much behind the scenes and kept quiet any issues; we always felt like all was on track and she minimized the stress for us. Any issues that we did become aware of, she would smile, let us know she was on top of it, and that was the end of it. Additionally, Tosca was willing to do ANYthing, and happily. A few days before the wedding I realized I'd overlooked purchasing something that we wanted to have for guests at the wedding and I just figured I'd have to live without it but Tosca jumped right in and took care of it. Tosca is also a savvy shopper and knows how to find the best deals - she makes sure to keep costs down for you as much as possible. Lastly, Tosca has a great sense of humor and made the process so much fun. Both my mom and I were sad to say bye to Tosca at the end of the wedding weekend but know we will be in touch for years to come."

"After an extensive search for the right planner, I landed happily on Tosca. Hiring her was the best decision I made for my wedding. She has all the characteristics that are truly crucial in a wedding planner: patience, charisma, positivity, and most of all dedication. She has over 20 years in the industry and she knows everything there is to know about weddings. She is calm and collected and can honestly deal with any type of situation without you ever knowing. The whole wedding planning process was truly seamless with her. She caught on to my style very early on and let me soar where I needed to and lent her helping hand where I fell short. But where Tosca truly showed me just how invaluable she was to my wedding, was on the day of. She was a miracle worker. I could see her hovering across the masses sprinkling fairy dust on everyone with her infectious smile and charisma. She orchestrated everything PERFECTLY. All of my vendors adored her. She is SO good that I had a few guests and bridesmaids who inquired about her immediately. Look no further, Tosca is simply THE BEST."
COURTNEY + TODD
“Thank you for being by our side throughout the wedding planning process as well as on the day of. You helped make the year leading up to the wedding filled with excitement and pure bliss. Your “anything is possible attitude” made all of our dreams come true… Whenever I had a question or a concern, you were always right there to inform or calm the anxious bride-to-be down. Your organizational skills are incredible and very much admired. I really do not know how you did it all! … Tosca you were by my side … The moment I remember most clearly was right before I was to walk down the aisle with my dad. I discovered that my veil was not on securely and you were gone in a flash with bobby pins with literally seconds to spare. You clearly work magic …Your fabulous idea to incorporate the Irish bagpiper into the ceremony was brilliant and guests have not stopped raving about it… From the I do’s to the thank you’s our day was true perfection.”
BRIAN + JEN
“Fabulous, fantastic, unbelievable, touching, moving, memorable, priceless, and just plain fun. Thank you SO much for EVERYTHING these last 18 months–it has been such a pleasure working with you, and you made the planning of the wedding so effortless and the weekend itself so easy & carefree that I just can’t thank you enough!” I can’t believe it’s over after so much planning, and I thought it went beautifully–for which I give you 100% credit. I know how much “behind the scenes” work went into such a wedding to ensure everything ran smoothly, and I really appreciate all that you did. It’s going to be hard to get used to living without your daily emails–my best pen-pal is leaving me!”
JANIS - M.O.B.
“I am so happy we found you when we did. You helped to keep us organized and on track. (I could use you to organize my personal life). You were definitely a calming factor when emotions would get out of hand…To this day everyone still talks about the wedding and reception. It was truly a fairytale day meant for a Princess and Prince. Cristina and Matt told me at the end of the night, that their day had far exceeded even their expectations…You are a remarkable lady. I’m not sure the word “stress” is in you vocabulary. The wedding experience would never have been as beautiful if it were not for you. You had a solution to every problem…”
DANIELLE + DAVID
“…From the moment you and I first spoke, my whole feeling about our wedding changed (for the better) – I went from panic mode to a kind of excitement words cannot describe. I knew with you, we would get through everything the result would be beautiful. I was, I’m sure, one of your most difficult clients (feel free to use me as an example of an over-bearing bride)…It was hard for me to let go of the details and yet I knew I needed help…You were always understanding, kind, gave brilliant ideas and at the same time, you gave Dave and me the independence to make the final decisions…After your countless hours of hard work, my panic attacks and all the decisions made our wedding unfold to become the most incredibly beautiful, perfect, amazing day. It was a wedding beyond our dreams! We (and our parents) have received countless notes, emails and phone calls about how incredibly wonderful, beautiful (and fun!) everything was…from the ceremony to reception. and you stayed ‘til the end! One final note…my family adores you! My dad especially is a pretty quiet man. Yet he opened up to you in a way I’ve rarely seen. We all have the utmost respect for you and we all send you a big hug! Grazie!”
YAEL + BRIAN
“We cannot thank you enough for pulling off the wedding of our dreams, every aspect of which exceed our expectations and those of our parents. And as you know, our family has very high expectations! …From our first interview, we felt your warmth and vibrancy and knew you would be a good fit for our family… You pointed us to top quality vendors that fit both our aesthetic and personal styles. The evening before the wedding, it was much colder outside than we anticipated and you suggested and found the perfect wraps to provide to the guests. On the day of the wedding you had bobby pins to keep the kippot in place in the wind, you had white chalk to cover the flower pollen stain on my dress, you organized a last-second seating change for my family, you kept the event flowing smoothly and my family didn’t have to worry about a thing…We felt so taken care of, that after the wedding it was very hard to get used to being without you. I kept wanting to tell everyone “talk to Tosca!”…it was a wedding people are still talking about, and we are still smiling when we think about it.…Thank you"
SARENA + VIKRAM
“Thank You, Tosca, for everything you have achieved for us! Our wedding guests still tell us how smooth the entire event was. Indian weddings can be very complicated…it is often the case that the bride and groom become overwhelmed with all the family, tradition, rituals, events, clothes, jewelry, etc. With you in charge, we felt like we could actually relax and enjoy the ride. Our “Big Fat Indian Wedding” was a whirlwind of excitement, and you were the calming force in the center. We knew that, on our wedding day, the two of us could relax and enjoy the day. But we were happily surprised to see that both sets of parents were also relaxed and enjoying the entire event – from dawn until dawn! Trust us, that alone is an achievement and worthwhile. Most of all, we enjoyed meeting you and we are proud to call you our friend. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
ANDREA + ERIK
“Where do I begin…Erik and I can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us through the past almost 2 years. There is no way we could have done it without your help. Your assistant was so nice to me, she is a keeper. You’re a part of our lives forever. I will miss you so much. You know your job, and you do it well. Our friends and family said it was the best wedding they had ever attended. Many family members said you were so much help to things they never knew had to be done. Others said, “good job on hiring a wedding planner”. I like to think so. I hope our wedding made you proud after all your hard work. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Please think of us when you give your next bride’s your card. All your past brides including me have a big smile on our faces because of you.”
