What People Say

Jessica H.Best money we spent!

Hester Parks was SO incredible for our wedding planning! We chose 'Day Of' services, but she went so above and beyond - even coming to my dress fitting to learn how to bustle properly. She was so sweet and calming throughout the planning process, and was happy to connect us with vendors. Very organized, quick to respond, and great rate compared to other vendors.
Loved her + highly recommend!!

Taylor R.Hester is amazing to work with!

After having reservations with my previous wedding planner, Hester stepped in 3 months before my wedding and tied up all the loose ends I was left drowning in. She suggested wonderful vendors and helped stick to the budget.
Hester is organized, punctual, upbeat and calming! She will let you know what to expect and answer every question you have along the way.
She's worth every penny!

ReinaMoney Well Spent...Mother of the Bride

I cannot say enough about Hester Park at Park Avenue Wedding Planning. She is top notch, a true professional, extremely organized and knows the business well. You cannot go wrong with this lady. She will do what she says she is going to do, will not over promise and under deliver. All you have to do is tell her exactly what you want, and she will take it from there. Absolutely worth every penny spent.
Ladies, HIRE YOUR WEDDING PLANNER BEFORE CHOOSING YOUR EVENT space, you will be surprised at all the things you do not know, it will be very well worth it!

JuelleI recommend Hester, without any reservation, to anyone needing a planner.

Words cannot express my gratitude towards Hester. I was able to enjoy my wedding day thoroughly because I had confidence that Hester had everything under control and she would take care of what needed to be taken care of. The first time I met Hester, she had such a warm personality and her dedication to her work was evident. Hester was the first of three wedding planners that I intended to contact and interview. After my meeting with Hester, I knew that she was the one I needed to help me plan my wedding. I did not care to interview another wedding planner and I made the right decision.
