Ashley & Sam

“Debbie from A La Mode events made my vision into reality. She is a woman of her word and I’ve gotten a chance to watch her work really hard in person as my vision came to life. My husband and I got married at my sister in law’s new home, right in the living room. Debbie came all the way from NY to West Philadelphia by herself and transformed the living room into the wedding of my dreams. The day of my wedding, Debbie made sure I was fed and pampered. She also made herself available to make sure my husband looked handsome for our big day. She even catered to my family and my in-laws. She did everything I needed her to do from start to finished. And I am so blessed and truly happy to have had her by my side throughout this whole journey! She is a true definition of black girl magic. Thank you Debbie and A La Mode Events.”

Steph

“PLEASE BOOK A LA MODE TO COORDINATE YOUR EVENT!!! I was lucky enough to have Debbie and her assistant, Stacy, as my Wedding Day Coordinators. Believe me, they took care of EVERY SINGLE DETAIL. From coordinating our preparation and travel time, putting together our wedding program, and making sure every thing was exactly how I envisioned it, Debbie took care of it all! My wedding ceremony ran over the allotted time and my bridal party was late to the garden where we were supposed to take pictures. Debbie negotiated an extra 30 minutes just so that I could take the pictures of my dreams. What I appreciated most is that Debbie made sure everything went well. With every wedding, things are bound to go wrong – disaster will strike somehow! BUT! With Debbie, I did not know whether anything went wrong. My wedding day was perfect because when something went wrong. DEBBIE TOOK CARE OF IT! Seriously, book A La Mode for your wedding planning, coordination, decorating, bridal styling needs! The attention to detail, professionalism, and can-do attitude cannot be beat!”

– Steph

Paula & Prince

“We could not have handled our 2(!!!!) big days without Debbie! She was invaluable in helping us, guiding us, giving us suggestions, and keeping us on top of what needed to be done. THANK YOU DEBBIE!”

– Paula & Prince

Shellian

“On point and very patient!!!! Debbie was born for this, any thing I ask her even at the last minute she delivered it without no worries. She is on time and efficient in her work!!!”

– Shellian

Tiffany & Steve

“Debbie was great! She executed my vision perfectly even with a few mishaps throughout the day!”

Marcy & Sam

“I got married in October 2015 and only had 4 short months to plan my wedding due to personal circumstances, with my father being terminally ill. A friend of mine referred me to Debbie, stating ” You will need a Day of Wedding Coordinator and Debbie is your person”. After some thought I realized my friend was right, I contacted Debbie. We discussed the details and I hired her. Debbie was able to come in at the last minute literally and handle what needed to be done. She coordinated every aspect of my day. I was able to relax and actually enjoy the process of that day. She was attentive to my ill father, and I really appreciate that. As I reflect back on my wedding day, I wholeheartedly am grateful that Debbie was my Day of Coordinator. Thank you Debbie!!!”

– Marcy & Sam

Dana & Christian Bete

“I used Debbie from A La Mode for my day of coordinator. My wedding was on 08/19/2017 and though I planned it myself, I wanted someone to be there (other than family) to make sure my day and my vision went perfectly. I checked out quite a few wedding coordinators, but after speaking with Debbie, I knew she was the one. Even though, I just booked her for “day coordinator” package, she was still very helpful in other areas of my planning process. She gave good recommendations, make up; videographer and after visiting the venue where my wedding was kept, she gave ideas of different things that I can do to enhance the place. Debbie was accessible and when I got the opportunity to see her work on my wedding day, I realized that she is truly a Gem. She was patient, she made sure the venue, DJ/MC and my other vendors did everything that I requested. I had nothing to worry about. She got me and my family for photos. When my husband kissed off my lipstick, she made sure my lipstick was ready for me and she told me that it needed to be applied. I could not have asked for a better person on my side on that special day. Thank you Debbie for making our wedding day go smoothly it was MONEY well spent – and she is affordable”
