Ana was a pleasure to work with. She was always quick to respond to my emails and questions. She’s really knowledgeable about standard practices in the wedding business which was really helpful when I was negotiating with wedding vendors. She did a great job handling all of the logistics of my actual wedding day. Thank you Ana!

Thank you so much for helping us have the wedding of our dreams! Without your expertise, organization and your fun but professional attitude it would not have been such a perfect day! Your attention to detail and vendor suggestions were spot on and everyone was wonderful! We still have people, even after 3 months raving about how fun (and a few “best wedding ever!” and “can’t top that wedding!” comments) it was. We are so happy we found you! Thank you so much for everything!

Ana and her staff at TwoFoot Creative were amazing. I really appreciated them the most the day after the wedding when I had time to reflect on the day. It went flawless. All the vendors Ana recommended delivered well above and beyond what I expected. We were all ridiculously on time all day due to her attention to detail in the timeline. Best of all… the day of I didn’t have to worry about a single thing. They handled it all from setting up the chairs at the theater, tying the sashes perfectly, making sure my handicapped grandma was taken care of, herding the crowd of guests for pictures, completely setting up the reception (including folding napkins), seating the guests and cleaning up at the end of the night.
The list could go on for pages of what they did. I’m sure there are things I missed because I don’t even know it happened – they just handled it. Because of TwoFoot Creative our special day was 100% stress free and perfect! I will recommend TwoFoot Creative at every opportunity.

Ana was amazing every step of the way, we literally could not have done it without her! She calmed our nerves, and gave sound advice about every decision (big & small) from what vendors to check out to the littlest details like where to order lunch with quickest delivery on our wedding day. She artfully managed our team of vendors and every last detail from setup to tear down the day of the wedding. Investing in Ana and her team was the best money we spent on the wedding, by far. Bottom line, our wedding was an absolutely stunning event that went off without a hitch. All of our guests left happy and most importantly, Mike and I had the most perfect, stress-free, unforgettable day thanks to her and her team.

Ana – thank you so much for everything you and the wonderful TwoFoot Creative team did to make our day perfect. I felt so much more at ease with you there and I don’t know how I would have done all the planning without you. I appreciate how flexible you were as we changed our minds a couple of times too! Will and I couldn’t be happier with how our day turned out and we owe a big part of that to you and your team. I’ll definitely recommend you to all of my engaged friends in the area. Thank you for making our day so much more special!

Ana and Kristin did an amazing job with our wedding- we couldn’t possibly have done it without them. They went above and beyond in every possible way, through the planning and on the day of. Ana helped get us through a venue change 4 months before the wedding, which sounds horribly stressful, but it wasn’t because Ana took care of everything.
She also has connections with some amazing vendors that I would never have found without her. Her experience and her knowledge works in your favor- when the exact purple I wanted for our linens didn’t come in a chair sash, she actually got the company to make them for us and not charge us an insane amount. She found several other ways to save us money with other vendors as well.
When issues came up on the day of the wedding, I never found out until after they had already been resolved. Kristin had to seek out a vacuum and clean the venue herself when it turned out it hadn’t been cleaned from the previous night’s wedding. She found me flowers to toss when it turned out I didn’t have a tossing bouquet. We created a really specific timeline, but when I wanted to change it slightly on the day of the wedding she worked with the bandleader and took care of it without a problem.
Even if you’re someone like me, who thought I could do the whole wedding on my own, you definitely need them for the day of the wedding and I’m so glad I chose to hire them for the planning as well. I might have been able to pull of a wedding on my own, but it would never have been anywhere near as perfect, enjoyable and beautiful as it was with Two Foot Creative’s input.

Ana and her team were such an imperative part of making sure my wedding day went off without a hitch. From recommending AMAZING vendors to answering my countless emails, Ana always made me feel very important and like she truly cared about making my day perfect.
The day of the wedding I did not worry about one thing and as a bride, that is HUGE. My parents also were able to fully enjoy themselves, as the timing and the flow of the evening was in Ana’s hands. I would without a doubt recommend TwoFoot Creative to all brides. It was one of the best choices I made planning my wedding!

Ana and her team were hired as my day of coordinators for my wedding. My reception took place outdoors under a tent which required additional coordination and setup, of which Ana and her team went above and beyond to achieve. Ana is very organized, responsive, and 150% reliable. As a bride, I was completely out of all the organization and details on my wedding day, which is exactly what I needed and wanted! I was able to enjoy my whole day and night care free, which is priceless!

We were planning our wedding in Ann Arbor, MI while living, working full time, and going to graduate school in San Francisco. Ana and the TwoFoot team made it possible for us to have the wedding of our dreams. She helped us from start to finish, recommending vendors, guiding us through key decisions, keeping us on track timing wise, and most importantly, making sure everything went perfectly on our special day. Ana was a fabulous listener, hearing exactly what we did and didn’t want and then making recommendations accordingly. We were thrilled with all of our vendors, thanks to Ana’s established relationships and great management. I would highly recommend Ana, and can’t thank her enough for everything she did for us and our wedding!

May 12th, 2012
Shortly after we got engaged, my fiancé and I discussed getting married in Ann Arbor and decided that we would need to hire a local wedding planner since we live out of state. We planned a last minute trip to AA for some venue hunting and I started calling planners, hoping we might be able to fit in a few meetings, the week prior to our visit. Only two planners were able to meet with us on such short notice.
Ana Skidmore, of TwoFoot Creative, was our first meeting that Saturday morning and we actually canceled our meeting with the second planner about ten minutes after leaving Ana. Ana was smart, friendly, and we were quite impressed by the fact that she fit in a meeting with us only a few hours before she had another wedding! In fact, she invited us to come back that evening and see her — and that evening’s event — in action. Little did she know that we had already decided to book her! And little did we know that Ana would prove to be invaluable, would make this experience incredibly easy and fun, and would be someone that we now consider a friend!
Since we lived far from Ann Arbor, we chose TwoFoot Creative’s Diamond package, for full service wedding planning. This might have been the single best wedding-related decision we made. Ana helped us with every single facet of this wedding. I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that we couldn’t have pulled off such a wonderful event without her. She really took the time to figure out who we were, what we liked (and definitely noted what we disliked and steered us clear of any vendors who wouldn’t have fit our tastes!), and how to make us happy. When it came time to book other vendors, Ana weeded through the hundreds of local vendors for us and recommended a select group of photographers, florists, bands, and videographers that she thought we might mesh well with. Thanks to her, we ended up with the BEST vendors ever.
One of the things that made this whole process so enjoyable was that I quickly learned that I could trust Ana’s judgment and rely on her opinions. Ana really understood what we were like and what we wanted out of this day. For the last year, Ana has been my eyes and ears in Ann Arbor. My now-husband and I flew in on a few different occasions for tastings, flower/décor meetings, and to handle assorted wedding-related tasks. But Ana took care of 95% of the work and kept us organized, on track, and entirely minimized the pre-wedding panic that I see a lot of brides experience.
I could continue to wax on about how wonderful Ana was throughout the year, but the proof lies in the fact that we had the best wedding we could have imagined and that it went off flawlessly. The entire weekend ran smoothly, there were no major or minor disasters; Ana and her team handled every detail so that I (and my family and bridal party) could relax, and my husband and I had SO much fun. It has been nearly a month since our wedding and our guests are still telling us how beautiful the event was and how much fun they had. May 12th really was our perfect day and there isn’t a thing that we would change about our wedding or our choice of vendors.
Yes, Ana is a wedding planner and she pulled off a totally spectacular event that we will never forget. But Ana is so much more than that. She is a friend, she is a therapist, and she is ready, willing, and able to deal with anything (think: family drama, bridal anxiety, emergency seamstress-ing when a dress bustle rips, bride-breakfast-feeder on the wedding day, etc, etc). Ana was always available by phone or email (in fact, there were countless days over the past year when Ana and I would email back and forth at least 15-20 times), she is incredibly responsive, and she is SO on top of everything. Ridiculously organized, a perfectionist, and a little blonde bulldog when necessary (on the wedding day, Ana will make absolutely SURE that nothing goes wrong and that everyone is doing what they should do and is where they ought to be at exactly the right time!), Ana was the ideal wedding planner and we are so thankful that we found her!
The only problem I encountered with TwoFoot Creative and Ana Skidmore is that I grew very attached to her and am suffering from post-wedding separation anxiety!
I would highly recommend Ana’s services to any local couples, and especially to any long distance couples, who want an amazing wedding without any of the planning-drama that normally accompanies such an event. Our wedding wouldn’t have been possible without her.

We have been working on our “Thank You” cards, but did not want to wait to send a special thanks for your all your work on our wedding!
From our first meeting, until the end of the ceremony, your presence gave us a feeling that everything would end up fine. Thank you for this feeling! Thank you for all the advice, coaching, and help getting us through the process of planning, in spite of our naivete.
Thank you for your inspiration, your creative ideas. And thank you for helping us realize so many of these ideas all at once, while even helping to fix our own mistakes along the way.
Even with so much going wrong at the venue, troubles with some of the vendors, and all the other “day of” tempest, you still kept helping us work through any situation, and never once said “it was your choice”. It was an impressive display of professionalism in the face of many challenges. You were more than a coordinator that day. You were our psychologist, friend, and port in the storm. Our compliments on your staff as well, as they all were so emotionally warm and helping people.
We sincerely wish you a long successful career in your job, with many outstanding projects and happy couples.

I don’t know what I would have done without Ana & her team at TwoFoot Creative! I purchased the Amber package so that I could get help with all the setup for the church and reception venue as well as to have someone keep track of the wedding day schedule so that I could enjoy the wedding without stressing out. Ana was very professional and very calm throughout the day which helped me relax and not worry about anything. Her associates set up the reception venue just as I envisioned it to be with minimal instructions – they really know what they’re doing! Ana was flexible with meeting times, which was very helpful for a busy working professional who was working until two days before the wedding. Would definitely recommend!

I was hesitant to hire a wedding planner. How much help could she really be on the day of the wedding? Invaluable! Hiring Ana was the best decision we made during wedding planning. The day of our wedding was so relaxing because we didn’t even have to think about coordinating vendors or other logistics. The day was flawless and Ana played a huge hand in this.

Ana was wonderful to work with and took a ton of stress off me leading up to our big day. From her first email, I knew I wanted to hire her. It was a lengthy, detailed description of everything she could provide and help me with. Her timeline was a life saver for me and all my vendors and made me feel so much more prepared. She was always very professional and pleasant and we had a wonderful experience with her and her team!

Thanks again for everything,

Ana was truly a pleasure to work with. I can’t say enough about how happy we were working with her. She was always so professional, organized, and on top of everything, and the quality of vendors she works with are top notch. I didn’t have to worry about anything on my daughter’s wedding day. Ana and her staff took care of it all and made it so beautiful – she made sure everything was perfect!
Thanks so much, Ana!

Our experience with TwoFoot Creative was excellent! Ana was very quick to respond to questions via email – which was very convenient. We went with the Amber package and our wedding day was flawless. Ana went over all the details and confirmed all the vendors the week prior to the wedding. She executed the planning timeline for our wedding day perfectly. Everything at the ceremony and reception was set up exactly the way we wanted. Ana has great taste and she definitely used it to decorate certain aspects of the reception – which we hadn’t thought about. Overall we had an amazing experience with TwoFoot Creative. Excellence with details and very professional and friendly. My husband and I would have been way more stressed on the wedding day if it wasn’t for Ana and her assistants.

Ana is warm and professional. She was the calm in our storm. She was also very responsive and positive, which were all qualities we really needed during the hectic and stressful (but happy!) time. I would say her strongest qualities were her great resourcefulness, her calm temperament and her incredible organization. We could NOT have done this without her.

Hi Ana! I just wanted to thank you so much for all of your hard work and everything you did to make our wedding so special. It went perfectly, and I am so happy! You did such an amazing job. I never imagined that I would enjoy the day so much. You got me through the whole process and left me with a smile on my face. I really admire your grace and positive attitude, and I will be forever grateful to have had you as my wedding planner.
P.S. Your team is awesome too, please thank them for me!
June 11th, 2011
Ana and her team are absolutely fabulous. They are professional, efficient, and gracious. In supporting the planning of our wedding, twofootcreative was knowledgeable about vendors but did not push us in any direction. They were familiar with the constrictions and possibilities of our venue (an art museum) and worked well with the staff there and as an interface with the florist, videographer, photographer, caterer and baker. We even got a wonderful babysitter on their recommendation! Before the wedding, our communication was smooth and I could count on quick responses to any concern. On the day of the wedding, the planners were on top of every detail and addressed the minor glitches with equililbrium and panache. Very unobtrusive but right there when we needed them. I would recommend twofootcreative to anyone planning a wedding.

I was so happy to have Ana and the TwoFoot team at our wedding. With sudden rain, they quickly and efficiently moved guests inside and kept the wedding running on time and everything appeared seamless. She took all the stress out of the day, she managed all the deliveries, kept the ceremony, speeches, dances etc. all running smoothly and most of all she was gracious and personable when dealing with all our family, guests and vendors. We were able to just relax and enjoy the day, knowing that all of the details and issues were being taken care of.
Elaine – married at the Village Club in Bloomfield Hills, MI
Working with Ana was one of the easiest parts of the entire wedding planning process for me. She kept me and my family on task, made sure we got the important stuff done, so that way I could just enjoy the wedding day. It worked, I had a blast. Thanks Ana!

Ana helped us identify vendors and served as day of coordinator. She helped us find a terrific band and a wonderful photographer, among others. And as the wedding approached, Ana confirmed the arrival times for all vendors and, with her team, met them onsite. Ana was professional and exceptionally well organized and and it was a pleasure to work with her–and a relief not to have to worry about any details on the day of my daughter’s wedding.

We can never thank you enough for all you did to make our ceremony and reception so wonderful. From our first meeting, you were so professional and organized, and we were thrilled with the help and guidance you provided. It was wonderful to feel so confident that you had everything covered. It meant so much to know that everything was taken care of, and my husband, my parents, my husband’s parents and I were all able to enjoy every part of the day instead of worrying about last minute things. When I returned, people asked me how the wedding was and I often replied “perfect”. Or if it wasn’t, I didn’t know, which is exactly why we wanted a trusted wedding planner. Thank you!

Ana is phenomenal and sets the bar high for what wedding coordinators should strive to be. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, she ensured that all plans were developing smoothly, and the day of? All I had to do was sit back and enjoy myself. She took care of everything, from coordinating the vendors and our guests to keeping us on schedule all evening long. Ana made sure her assistant, Brenda, kept us fed during cocktail hour while we were taking photos, and my husband and I got to sit down and enjoy our entire dinner, which is unheard of. Even after our guests had left, Ana and her team packed up the room in record time, which continued to leave us nothing to do but relax and reflect on a truly amazing day. She even left slices of our wedding cake in our suite for us! You won’t regret booking Ana to coordinate your wedding day, and your sanity will thank you!

Hiring Ana was one of the best decisions we made! She was very friendly, organized, and fun. She had great recommendations for vendors, and every one of them was amazing! She stayed in contact with our vendors and had a very detailed timeline out to everyone a week before the wedding. Its hard to imagine how everything is going to “fit” together on the wedding day, but with Ana’s help everything looked beautiful!
Ana was very professional. She ran our chaotic rehearsal gathering with ease and made sure everyone knew where they needed to be the next day. The day of our wedding we got to sit back and relax and knew that everything was taken care of. We had so much fun and were so thankful for all of her help!
Stacie – married at Cobblestone Farm in Ann Arbor, MI
Ana of TwoFoot Creative handled my daughters wedding. She kept us on track for getting everything done within the proper time frame and took the Stress out of my daughters wedding day. Ana and her staff were very professional. I can’t imagine trying to do everything ourselves that she did for us the day of the wedding. I can’t think of a thing I would change if we had it to do over again. Working with Ana was a wonderful experience and I will recommend her and her staff to anyone planning a wedding. She was wonderful!!!
Karen – Stacie’s mom
We were lucky to know Ana of TwoFoot Creative as a friend prior to experiencing her services as a Wedding Planner. However, I can speak honestly as a client that her professionalism, promptness, preparedness for any major or minor surprise, incredible value, and creative flair made for a wedding that was more elegant, beautiful, and (most importantly) fun then we could have ever planned ourself. Her ability to know and adapt to my wife’s tastes allowed her to provide great options and allow us to make easy decisions. She was then able to fill in the small, stress inducing details. She comes highly recommended. Thank you Ana!

Ana is incredible. She was the reason my wedding went smoothly from start to finish. Not only is she professional, she goes out of her way to make sure your day is exactly what you envisioned. Ana also provides excellent guidance and recommendations for vendors. Without Ana and her team I don’t know how it would have been possible to plan a wedding in four months (including the fact it was on snowy day in December, in Michigan, on the day of a major sporting event in Ann Arbor) and have it go perfectly. Thank you Ana!
Krissy – married at St. Thomas Catholic Church, Ann Arbor with a reception at UMMA
What an remarkable job you and your staff pulled off so we could have a perfect wedding. There is no way we could have had an affair at Cobblestone (Ann Arbor, MI) without you. Your team did a terrific job getting everything pulled together while following my vision. I seriously never would have been able to give up the reins to you if you hadn’t inspired such total confidence. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
It was impossible to imagine how difficult a site that was to set up in the limited time frame, or the magic the site evoked until I saw all the vendors spring into action. Other than it being chilly, the whole evening came off perfectly. The food was magnificent, the dÃ©cor beguiling, the music terrific, and the orchestration of putting it all together by you and your couldn’t have been better.
Thanks again for all your efforts. If you ever want someone to contact me for a recommendation, it would be my pleasure.

Ana and her team, Kristen and Amber, were phenomenal. I really didn’t think I needed “help,” but my mom insisted that I find a great person to help us day-of and leading up to the wedding. OH BOY, AM I GLAD I DID. Ana helped get us organized and then, on the wedding day, spent hours helping us get set up and ready for the ceremony and reception. Everything was beautiful, all the vendors were lined up and on time. Ana helped us avert a linen crisis and all was good in my “princess for a day” kingdom. I can highly recommend Ana and Twofoot Creative! They were professional, easy to work with, organized, responsive and overall, very nice! Well worth the money to hire he best you can! I also found Ana’s fees very reasonable and she had packages depending on the amount of work you need. We would have been lost without them. Thanks Ana, Kristen and Amber–you made the day beautiful.

Hiring Ana was the best decision we made throughout the entire planning process. Her expertise, organizational skills, and stellar vendor reviews kept me at ease from day one. Furthermore, her value far outweighed her cost. She was the best money spent. She went above and beyond to make sure our wedding was everything we wanted and ran smoothly start to finish. I highly recommend TwoFoot Creative!

Wedding at private cottage in Pinckney, MI
Hiring Ana and TwoFoot Creative was by far the best money we spent during our entire wedding process. She was always prompt, responsive, helpful and full of great ideas, advice and recommendations. She helped with all our vendor selections and recommended everyone we worked with. We were more than happy with ALL of them. The day of the wedding she was booked already so her assistant Shawn was our day-of coordinator. She was also fabulous. Her and her assistant set everything up at the hall for us and it was beautiful! Ana and her husband even stopped by at the end of the night to help out. We were beyond impressed with the whole process and TwoFoot Creative eliminated so much stress of wedding planning. We will recommend her to everyone we know who is getting married!

Ana is a very conscientious and very well organized wedding coordinator. She is efficient and astute. She is well balanced, calm and very well tempered and she is an excellent wedding coordinator who has great contacts. Ana and her contacts are wonderful, fun, extremely efficient and very professional.

Ana – Thank you so much for all you do. We couldn’t have pulled this off without you and your team!
Married at St. Mary’s Parish in Royal Oak, MI
Ana and two of her assistant provided day of coordination for our wedding. They were amazing! Our wedding had some technical challenges since the church was in Southfield and the reception was outside our house in Dexter (about an hour apart). Ana sent Ashley to coordinate the church service while she and Kristen set up the linens, centerpieces, decorations, and oversaw the vendors.
No matter what happened, from my bustle coming completely undone to major thunderstorms, Ana handled everything quickly, quietly and professionally. I am pretty sure nothing ruffles her! She went well above the call of duty and at one point was even mopping rain off the dance floor like it was no big deal. Having her there made the wedding reception run smoothly and eliminated so many worries from off my shoulders.
Another thing I loved was the timeline that Ana helped me create. I used that for all my planning and it was an invaluable resource. It was definitely not something I could have done on my own.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Ana! She saved our reception from being a rained out nightmare and we are so grateful! I would wholeheartedly recommend Ana and TwoFoot Creative!

Nate and I had an excellent experience with Ana and Two Foot Creative! Our wedding was all we had hoped for and exceeded all expections. Ana took the stress out of the wedding day and let us just enjoy the biggest day of our lives. Even though she was just over 8 months pregnant for our wedding, she had her husband Gene helping out, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see the two of them together as the husband and wife wedding planning team in the future, because they did an amazing job together! Other than Ana looking like she was ready to pop, you wouldn’t have known she was about to give birth. She was extremely professional, energetic, and passionate (she wore heels the whole night!), you can tell she loves what she does. Nate and I used Ana for the entire wedding planning process and it was definitely worth it. She broke down our budget at the beginning and we were within a couple hundred dollars at the end, even with adding some additional items to spice things up. Ana made our lives/wedding experience a lot easier and a lot more enjoyable. The reception site looked even better than we had ancticipated, and our guests raved about how much fun and beautiful the reception was. I would HIGHLY recommend Ana and Two Foot Creative as your wedding planner!!!
Theresa and Nate – Wedding at Rackham Auditorium, Reception at the Gandy Dancer in Ann Arbor, MI
Looking back, I am so glad we hired Ana for Day-of Coordination. Her timeline is phenomenal and I especially appreciated her being there to run our rehearsal. Since my mom and I made almost all of the decorations and favors, we would have had to go set up everything on the day of the wedding, and it really relieved us of that stress so we could enjoy the morning getting ready. Other than that, Ana just made our evening run smooth from having emergency thread and needle to repair the loose brooch on my dress to making sure the guest book was passed around the tables so that it was full at the end of the night. Beyond all that, she was just really friendly and I thoroughly enjoyed working with her. Thanks again!

I was the groom so I had no idea what I was in for. Ana knew more details than I ever could have imagined and even had plenty of points my wife hadn’t even considered. If anything, Ana was way over-prepared because we had such a simple ceremony and reception. My only wish was that we had thought to work with her earlier on so we had all of her “lists” from the jump off.
As for during the event, I can’t tell you how much I appreciated her and her staff’s professionalism and eagerness to help in ANY way hey could. Ladies, do your fiancee a favor and tell him I said to AT LEAST get TwoFoot as a day-of coordinator. A happy and completely care-free bride will make his day just as enjoyable as yours.
I cannot say enough positive words about TwoFoot Creative. Ana was awesome and her team were true professionals. Throughout the day, people kept commenting about my stress-free appearance and demeanor… Ana is the reason why! She truly made my wedding day what it was – PERFECT! I actually enjoyed my day, felt that I was able to relax and just take it all in. At one point, I thought to myself, “Wow, I will actually remember my wedding day.” It was not a blur at all (like most would say . I absolutely encourage and recommend every bride to use Ana and her team!

I used Ana as a Day of Coordinator. Never having gone through a wedding before, I was anxious about everything running smoothly the day of. I decided to hire Ana to give me peace of mind so that I could enjoy my day to the fullest. She did exactly that. The outline we arranged prior helped my planning process in so many ways, because Ana reminded me of all the small things that needed to get done. On the day of, Ana made sure all my vendors were doing what they were supposed to be doing and helped with set-up. I appreciated all the little things she did as well such as making sure our head table had the drinks they wanted and taking my luggage and cards to our hotel room. The small things really made a difference and a lasting impression. Thank you!

Ana at Two Foot Creative was amazing. She made our wedding spectacular and made planning a wedding from 3 hours away a breeze. Every vendor she recommended was fantastic and easy to work with. Our wedding day was stress-free thanks to Ana. Every bride needs Ana!

TwoFoot Creative helped us with every aspect of our wedding. Ana kept us on track and on budget from the first phone call until the last guest walked out the door. Every guest we had at the wedding could not stop telling us how wonderful out wedding was and I believe we owe much of that credit to TwoFoot Creative.

What can I say about Ana that hasn’t already been said? Extremely organized, communicative, knowledgeable and flexible, Ana genuinely has what it takes to be a wedding coordinator. She confirmed all my vendors, kept us organized at the rehearsal (my dad made it a point to ask me if Ana would be there the day of the wedding; when I said yes, he said that was great because she knew her stuff), made sure the room looked beautiful the day of, and made sure the events of the day flowed smoothly and easily. She has an eye for spotting difficult situations and defusing them as pleasantly but as firmly as possible. At the end of the night she coordinated those willing to help clean up and had all of our wedding stuff loaded into my parents’ SUV before I knew it. Ana and her assistant, Johanna Alexander, made the day go by so smoothly for us. I honestly wasn’t stressed about anything because I knew Ana was there. If you think having a day-of coordinator is a luxury, I’d reassess; I knew it was essential to have someone else there to deal with the minute details or the larger situations that would only stress out a bride. Ana will resolve them and you won’t notice a thing.

When I first started planning my wedding I did not have a planner. A family member recommended TwoFoot, and from our first meeting everything was done with A+ care and service. Anyone that gets married without a wedding planner is in for a big surprise. I have already recommended TwoFoot Creative to other friends who are planning a wedding. Thank you!

From our first meeting at Caribou (my favorite!) the stress lifted off my shoulders. Just knowing someone would be there the WHOLE day was priceless. Ana was very professional and comforting to our concerns and needs. She responded to emails promptly and always checked in to make sure everything was going ok. I only wish I had looked into a coordinator earlier in the process to benefit from more services! Ana even traveled in Rochester traffic during rush hour for our rehearsal, and two hours later, helped us all rehearse in the rain. Ana was amazing and we would completely recommend her to any bride and groom looking for help.

Where do we begin to thank you?! Your expertise, guidance, and flexibility throughout the wedding planning process was truly outstanding. Thanks for helping with the details – both large and small – we appreciate all that you did! It was truly a pleasure to work with you, so many, many thanks for helping to make our wedding dreams a reality! In gratitude,

I can’t thank Ana enough! Even though I chose the day of package, she worked hard for me. She got a timeline to me the day of our first meeting! We communicated often by email and she was always quick to answer, make suggestions and reassure me! She had a lot to do in the 3 hours before the ceremony and everything was ready and perfect.
Thank you Ana, you saved my life and my daughter’s wedding day!
April 25th, 2009
Ana was a great help on the day of our wedding! She kept everything organized. Even though I only booked the day of services, I got more than just day of assistance! She was always there to answer my questions via email and had a quick response rate. She kept the rehearsal very organized and everyone in line! The day of she kept everything running smoothly. If there was anything wrong I didn’t know about it! She was also a great help after the wedding by gathering everything for us and packing it up! I would recommend her to all my friends! Even though you may think you can do it on your own – having someone else in your corner is a great help! She helps remind you of things that may have slipped your mind!
Thanks again Ana, you ROCK!

Thank you so much for all of your help! Right from the start, you had a long list of vendors to suit my needs. All of the vendors you recommended were professional and excellent. That is saying a lot!!
In the weeks leading to the wedding, you were key in helping me to plan, and not be overly stressed. Trying to pull everything together from a different state would not have been possible without your help.
My wedding day was nearly perfect, and the few minor things that didn’t go quite like I’d planned, were fixed with a simple phone call to you. Especially on the day of the wedding. It was so wonderful to know that anything I needed, you took care of it. I didn’t have to worry at all whether the centerpieces I’d dreamed up would look like I wanted, or whether the crystal place card curtains would look right. I had complete confidence that you would have it all set up perfectly, and you did. You surely saved me hundreds of dollars using your man power, as opposed to paying a linens company or florist.
I can say without a doubt that my wedding was exactly as I imagined. In fact, my family and I are still receiving emails exclaiming how beautiful everything was. I certainly could not have set it all up, on my budget, without your help. I would recommend you to anyone.

A very special Thank You for all your time, help and professionalism. It was a pleasure working with you. Without hesitation we would recommend your service. You made our wedding special from early planning to last details. You treated us like friends and not just clients!
Sincerely, Carey & Jason and Families
Ana stepped in the driver’s seat in the last stage of our planning. She helped us plan a wedding from across the country and was more than willing to meet us in Pasadena, CA for a consultation during a family trip. She was a true blessing and we appreciate all of her hard work. It was a wonderful experience.
All the best,

Ana is a great wedding consultant. She is very reliable and flexible. She met with me several times before the wedding, to make sure everything was running smoothly. She knows many vendors in the area and helped me pick out a photographer. She let me know about all of the details I wouldn’t have thought about until it was too late! With Ana at the wedding (and her assistant, Gene!), I didn’t worry about a thing. Even though there was a huge snowstorm the day of and two people in my bridal party ended up having late flights due to cancellations, Ana coordinated their pick-up and everything went smoothly!

It was because of Ana that I was able to relax and enjoy my big day. Ana calmed my mother and me down, and took care that had to happen (and wasn’t planned to happen!) on the day of my wedding. From setting up our favor table and cake table, to seating people that didn’t have a place card, every detail was managed professionally and smoothly…all problems were solved!
It’s difficult to plan a wedding while working a full time job, but Ana made it possible for me. She kept me on track and organized the wedding day itinerary for me. She’s a natural at what she does. I’ve been referring her to everyone I know who is planning a wedding…Thanks again Ana!

Hiring TwoFoot Creative was the best decision that I could have made for my wedding day! I DIY’ed my entire wedding and would never have been able to set up all my items. They also were so helpful in keeping the day flowing and my stress level down. I was able to enjoy my wedding day and I trusted in the girls to take care of it all… and they did!

Ana was awesome! She made sure the day was continually on schedule and did all the details I asked of her! She knows how to get things done in a very unobtrusive yet to-the-point manner. At the end of the night she had packed up all of our things in a completely organized way so that our family could just pick it up and go! Thank you Ana for providing me with such a worry-free day. It was the best feeling knowing I had you to take care of anything that might go wrong!

When I initially started planning my wedding it was a year and a half before and I thought I had it all together. As it got closer I kept adding more details and ideas and we knew we needed some help. We met with other coordinators who were either ridiculously expensive, unprofessional, or just not a right fit for us but when we met with Ana we knew right there on the spot we wanted to book her. She is very knowledgeable, helpful and preofessional with everything. She was a life saver when it came to the day of. I would recommend it to any bride! My husband’s family always commented on how I was so calm during it all and it was because I knew we were in good hands.
Thank you Ana for everything!

I hired Ana as a day of coordinator for my wedding. I cannot begin to describe how helpful Ana is as an event coordinator. After our second meeting, I felt more than confident handing over all of our tasks to her. She handled the day (and its hiccups) with incredible calm and speed. Thank you for helping us to relax and enjoy our wedding day!

Ana and her assistant Shawn were a large part of why our wedding was a huge success. I had been wedding planning for over a year, so when the day finally came, I wanted to spend it enjoying the fruits of my labor. Also, 70% of our guests were from out of town and I wanted to spend as much time with all of them as possible. Ana and Shawn were able to anticipate things I might need well in advance, and despite how organized I thought I was, they thought of things I needed that I never even considered! Ana even helped my bridal party get out dress stains!
For those out there considering a coordinator, hire one! Even if you have individuals who will be there for the ceremony, reception and decor you still need someone to help you personally, and it should be someone apart from your guests, so that 1 – all of your guests have a good time, and 2 – you don’t feel obligated to “only ask so much” of an aunt, sister etc. Plus, a coordinator will always be by your side (vs. a reception coordinator who has to be in the kitchen, or a family member dancing).
Thank you both so much!

Ana was awesome! I would recommend her to anyone because she is so calm, organized, cheerful, and thorough. I was a bride who thought that she didn’t really need a planner, but was still happy to have one to help out. It turned out to be absolutely VITAL that Ana was there and I really don’t think I would have been able to enjoy my own wedding so much without her. My mom has officially adopted her as a second daughter, too !
Thanks Ana, we love you!!

I have to echo my daughter’s praise for Ana. She is very thorough and flexible. Also, she rolls with the punches, never losing her cool or even appearing furstrated, which was very important to me, because I have a tendency to micro-manage, especially if I sense a problem. With Ana in carge, I can honestly say I was completely relaxed and enjoyed every moment of this once-in-a-lifetime experience. I am very grateful for Ana’s cheerful and competent handling of the day!

I highly recommend Ana from Twofoot Creative!
She responded to my emails promptly (I live in New York and my wedding was in Michigan so that was crucial for me), and kept my wedding timeline updated. On the day of the wedding her services came in handy when I needed someone to confirm with all vendors that everything was like I planned. She was extremely helpful when it came to last minute fix (she had to fix the top layer of my wedding because it was melting, had aspirins handy as my husband and I had headaches, helped some guests with their seating, dealt with our catering staff that left the buffet table open way too early, …I could go on and on).

Ken and I spent so much time and effort planning every detail and it was very scary for us to just hand over the day and trust someone else to make sure it all went as planned. From the start you put our minds at ease and made us feel as though our day was as important to you as it was to us.
As someone who is slightly obsessively organized, I was impressed with how well prepared and organized you were for each of our meetings, bringing up scenarios that I hadn’t even considered. You were a great sounding board for our plans and I think the fact that you recently planned your own wedding gave you an edge in that regard.
I didn’t think I’d truly let the day unfold without stress but that is in fact what happened. Ken and I were able to enjoy the day as it progressed without worrying if this or that detail was taken care of. You took all the information from our meetings and made it work. If there were hiccups or glitches I certainly had no idea.
A Day of Coordinator was one of the best “details” among hundreds of details that we chose for our wedding day. Thank you for being such an important part of our day!
Melissa & Ken
I am so glad that I hired TwoFoot Creative as my Day of Coordinator! I didn’t have to worry about any of the extra details the day of the wedding and did not have to give my family extra tasks to take care of so they could enjoy the day more.

Thank you so much for assisting us on our wedding day. We really appreciate all of the time and effort you put in to make it perfect. You were so helpful throughout the planning process even when you didn’t have to be and you were very patient with our indecisiveness. We didn’t even know of all the small fires you put out on the wedding day until after it was over and we are grateful that you were able to take care of those for us. We had a great wedding day and have no doubt that you and your assistant played a big part in that. We will highly recommend your services to any and all future brides.

I first learned about Twofoot Creative on theknot.com, and I’m so glad
that I contacted you! Our pre-wedding planning meetings (not to
mention the countless emails and phone calls!) were so wonderful. You
not only helped streamline and organize my crazy bride-brain, but made
sure that I had fun at the same time! I wish you could have been my
As for the wedding day – well, I’m sure I’ll never know the full
extent of how much you did! Organizing the cocktail hour decor,
making sure that everything made it to the church (and back!), keeping
all of my vendors in line, ensuring that the ‘special dances’ flowed
smoothly…the list goes on and on! There was a moment during dinner
when I looked around the room, and then at my new husband and said
‘everything is perfect – everything is as it was supposed to be!’ I
know that was because of you and Gene. Thank you!
