In the early stages of planning my wedding, I didn't necessarily see a need for a wedding planner because I thought I could handle the planning myself and delegate day of details to friends and family. Ultimately, I hired Stephanie because I didn't want to sweat the day of details and Stephanie came highly recommended to me. Looking back, I realize that it would not have been half the wedding without Stephanie's help and hiring her was the best money I spent on my entire wedding. My husband and I felt that she was the glue that held our wedding day together. She flawlessly coordinated with all of my vendors (our nontraditional caterer, DJ, officiant, bartenders, photographer, videographer, baker, florist, hair/makeup dresser, and numerous friends and family). She also collected all of my decor a week before the wedding and decorated my venue so beautifully (she even decorated my chalk boards)! I recently attended a wedding that did not run as smoothly, and was able to recognize even more so how great of a job Stephanie did for us. She's personable, organized, efficient, and keeps everything throughout the day on time so you can sit back and enjoy. I highly recommend Stephanie Kuhn to anyone getting married, and will be recommending her to all of my friends planning a wedding for years to come. She truly is amazing!

One of the most important things I did for my wedding was hire Stephanie to be my “day-of” coordinator. Actually, I highly believe hiring Stephanie was the most important thing! She helped so much to ensure everything from the ceremony to the reception went smoothly. Honestly, I did not realize all that goes into planning a wedding! I thought I had it all under control, until I started working with Stephanie and realized all of the decisions that needed to be made! And really, unless you have planned a wedding before, you do not anticipate all of the minute details that go into coordinating your dream day. Stephanie’s expertise was invaluable and I don’t know what I would have done without her. She is a joy to work with; so knowledgeable and sweet, and truly interested in the vision you have for your wedding. She knows how to make it all happen and what needs to be in place from one detail to the next. If you think about it, a wedding is like a really long theatrical play, and you sure as heck wouldn’t put on a show without having someone behind the scenes! Stephanie goes above and beyond for all of her clients. She met with me multiple times before the wedding to discuss everything and she offered unlimited email communication as well, which is when a lot of the last minute stuff fell into place! Thank you Stephanie, for all you did to ensure that my husband and I have a day to remember for the rest of our lives. You are wonderful and any bride who hires you has a true treasure!

Stephanie made our wedding day seamless! Being in the industry myself I expected everything to be perfect and it was. She went above and beyond just the day of coordination we hired her for. She constantly checked in to see my progress and even came with me to Vail just to take a look at the venue because she hadn't been there before. On our wedding day rain delayed the arrival of vendors. Stephanie made the appropriate adjustments before I even knew about it. Besides being very detailed and organized, she is a kind and caring person. She always made me feel like I was the most important bride. The wedding only lasted a day but my relationship with Stephanie is ongoing. If you are looking to hire a planner Bella Notte is the right decision!

First of all, any bride who thinks they don't need a coordinator is nuts. Second, having your friends coordinate is a stressful disaster waiting to happen. Having mom's run around crazy, bride, MoH stress, it's tough and then harder to enjoy the experience. It's suppose to be the best day ever.
Having said that, you want a coordinator that you can trust, is responsive, knows their way around vendors, and genuinely care and enjoy you and their job.
I feel extremely fortunate to have found Stephanie via my photographer. I can't imagine the insanity that would have occurred without her. My mother and his would have exploded. Albeit, they were insulted to not be involved with set up. Instead, I had a makeup artist come in and make them up. Stephanie pulled every little detail I could possibly imagine together. When it was time to relinquish control, I knew I could trust her and it would all be ok.
Again, Stephanie was amazing. I enjoyed her company and professionalism - and I even have a new friend.

We want you to know that you made our wedding a truly special experience and I know it wouldn’t have been nearly as amazing without you. Your care, attention organization and grace were unprecedented. Your experience and attentiveness allowed Nic and me to just sit back, relax and enjoy our day despite the little hiccups. Whenever we get asked about the wedding we always say we couldn't have done it without you! Thank you so much for everything! We cannot express our gratitude enough, you will always be a part of our story.

Stephanie was the glue that held our wedding together. We had an all-day event (morning ceremony, brunch reception, and evening BBQ) at 3 different locations with a lot of pieces and components – Stephanie was a huge lifesaver and was an incredible day-of coordinator. She helped manage all of the facets of the day and kept everything on track. Her calming presence made the day seem way less stressful than expected. Throughout the planning process, she was an awesome sounding board for ideas and was a tremendous help in organizing and managing all of the little details of our all-day event. We spent months and months trying to figure out something for our sendoff after the reception, but we were restricted in what we could use (no rice, no petals, etc.). We decided not to use anything – ironically, it rained during our brunch reception and Stephanie had brought a bunch of white umbrellas, which doubled for the rain and awesome send-off photos! It honestly would not have been the amazing wedding it was without Stephanie – she was incredible!
