"Dalina did an amazing job as our Day of Coordinator! She is very detailed and made sure our wedding was running smoothly so that we could relax and enjoy our wedding. She is such a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her coordinating services."- Tracy Curriden; June 2013

"Once in a Lifetime was absolutely wonderful as our day of coordinator. Dalina was incredibly friendly, detail-oriented, and passionate about making sure our wedding day went smoothly so we could relax and just enjoy the celebration. She went above and beyond that night, and we can't thank her enough!" Kelly DeBaene & Ben Martin, SB County Courthouse & Casa De La Guerra- August 2014

"I knew Dalina in elementary school and was at a friends wedding where she was the Coordinator and she did such an amazing job that I knew I had to have her for my wedding. I had been planning this day for my entire life and thought I wouldn't need any help but not only did Dalina think of elements I had no idea of, but she made my day so smooth. She took care of all my vendors and all the little things that come up that day that I could relax and enjoy my wedding day. It was nice having someone I knew and trusted there to look after everything and it is safe to say that she treats all clients that way. Highly Recommend her for your special day!!!" Ann-Marie and David Buczynski: March 2013


"My husband and I got married in the middle of his active military training, so he was away three months prior, and only came home for 4 days to get married before leaving again, all while I was in the middle of Grad school. Dalina made the planning process for our wedding not only easy but a complete joy, during a time I was incredibly stressed with everything else going on. She was constantly communicating with me, and the day of our wedding I didn't feel any responsibility to oversee or control anything- I just got to enjoy my new husband and all our friends and family! She ran our 220-person wedding so smoothly, and no one even knew she was doing it! I honestly don't know how I would have done any of it without her- I can look back now on that time and remember what a lovely, carefree wedding we had. Thank you, Dalina!" Mollie & Max Moore- November 2009

"We are so grateful for everything Dalina did to make our wedding day special. First, she was unbelievably helpful with the planning aspects.  There are so many things I never knew about a wedding, and Dalina was not going to let me miss a thing!  I live in Northern California, so her help in making appointments and keeping track of vendors was extremely necessary. When the wedding finally came, everything ran as smoothly as possible, which was no small task considering the numerous vendors, multiple locations, extensive decorations, and more! I knew I was in good hands and had a completely stress-free day.  The wedding turned out absolutely perfect.  I have Dalina to thank for giving me the wedding of my dreams."
