" Donna – I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all that you did to make our perfect day truly perfect. I am so glad that you came into my life and took charge with the wedding (Lord knows someone needed to)! If it weren't for you I would probably still be looking for a florist and freaking out about, well, just about anything! I did not think that it would be so difficult to plan a wedding and work a full time job...thank you for easing my mind of every last benign detail that I am sure only you and I noticed! You are truly amazing and any bride would be lucky to have you on her side. Love you and thanks from the bottom of our hearts. "

" Working with Donna to plan our wedding was a fun and entertaining experience. She showed up on day one full of enthusiasm with a can-do attitude and maintained that exuberance with each subsequent meeting. Throughout the planning process she was attentive and full of creative ideas. When our caterer quit a month before the wedding, Donna stepped up and immediately started setting appointments with available caterers. Our food was delicious and a better deal than the original plan. A week before the wedding we essentially lost our venue due to a shady rental situation. Donna tracked down the venue representative and worked out a plan that actually turned out to be better than we had originally envisioned. On the actual wedding day all we had to do was show up and get married! Our wedding was like a dream and everything fell into place beautifully. Donna's natural creativity and confidence will make your wedding planning and day a truly enjoyable and memorable experience. "

" As mother of the bride, I would highly recommend Donna Cole with Pearl and Roses as your wedding coordinator! She was there with my daughter and I through the whole planning process and was so professional and fun to work with. I am so thankful to Donna! Because of her I was able to enjoy the whole wedding day with family and friends and not have to be the 'stressed out mother of the bride.' You can tell Donna truly enjoys coordinating and planning weddings and has become a friend I will cherish for a long time! "

" Donna is detailed, thorough, tactful, more then competent and really seemed to capture our bride's vision. She was never-tiring on a LONG day, upbeat and had everything running smoothly. Probably the best run wedding I've every done. We finished the formals early! I hope to work with her again. "

" David said, 'She had the ability to make a zillion things happen at once and not project any stress on anyone at all. She was extremely responsive to us and easy to communicate with and work with.' And I have to say that I completely agree! Believe me, we deal with a LOT of wedding planners/coordinators and you really stood out. So here's to working together in the future! "
