Where do we even begin with the most amazing wedding coordinator!? Alison Goldberg is a true experienced professional in the wedding industry, but beyond her professional capabilities, Alison has the heart of gold (no pun intended). Alison was our day-of wedding coordinator, but she stepped in whenever she felt like we needed some extra help. Her wedding expertise was invaluable to me as the bride as I was the first of my friends to get married. Alison helped me understand different traditions, unique things to do at weddings, and sent me numerous articles. She had every little thing covered and kept me on track the entire way. Alison was always prompt in her responses and welcomed any and all questions. She also worked incredibly well with all of our other vendors and kept everyone up to date of any changes.
Every phone call and facetime with Alison was productive, but also so fun and enjoyable. We looked forward to those calls and now miss chatting with her every week or so!
Alison handles everything so professionally, but also vouches for the couple which is extremely important! Alison does everything with such grace and calmness that even on days I was freaking out, she brought me down from a panic. I promise you will not find a more attentive, loving, and supportive wedding coordinator in this industry.
We live in a big city and have always looked for that personal relationship with our wedding vendors and Alison really gave that to us. She even traveled to our city to meet all the vendors during our walk-thru a month before the wedding.
From the start of the wedding weekend, to the day of the wedding, Alison went above and beyond for us and you could really tell, because we had a beautiful, fun, well organized wedding thanks to her hard work and dedication. Anyone would be fortunate to have Alison as their day of coordinator.
Alison – Thank you for everything! We love you so much.

Words cannot express the gratitude we feel for your help with Sarah and Rick's wedding.
It was difficult for me when Sarah and Rick shared that they had picked the Morris House, for their wedding venue, since it was over two hours from my house. But as soon as I saw the venue, I could picture how it was exactly what they could envision for their wedding celebration.
When I finally met you, I was immediately struck by your sense of purpose and your drive to ensure that the day was perfect in every sense. Your detailed emails, some listing the exact timeline for every hour of the day, allowed me to relax because I realized that you covered every aspect of the wedding planning perfectly.
Your help with the food, caterer, photographer, musicians and even the hair and makeup stylists, was invaluable. And your suggestions about many of the above were spot on. Our guests are still raving about the caterer stating that it was the "best food they have ever had at a wedding".
I can picture you running up and down the stairs to the wedding suite without hesitation and with determination, to make sure that Sarah and Rick's day was perfectly coordinated. Your detail about how every table should be set, to your ideas about the tables for place cards, placement of lanterns and votives, menu's, chair placement, etc was invaluable.
And, we thank you for giving up your Friday night to help us at the rehearsal. This action was above and beyond, and ensured that all went smoothly for the actual wedding on Saturday.
Your help, dedication to us, and your love for your job was evident from the day we met you to the day of the wedding. We will not forget you (or Michael) and thank you immensely.
We are forever grateful,
Diana and Jeff Teitel

Dear Soon-to-be Newlyweds,
Alison Goldberg took over our event coordination and wedding planning after we decided to use Deluxe Events. We could not have asked for a better wedding planner! Our day was an absolute dream come true. We credit its success to Alison’s talent, but most of all, her commitment to making our day special.
Alison demonstrated her passion and dedication from the very beginning. She really took the time to get to know us and understand what our dream day looked like. Her communication skills are excellent, and we found it very easy to get all of our questions answered whether it was by email, phone, or text. Leading up to the event, Alison scheduled a weekly FaceTime call with us in order to go over the final timeline and offer us an opportunity to bring up any concerns we may have.
Alison has a gift for paying attention to the small details, which contributed greatly to ensuring our day was uniquely us and ran smoothly. When we were at a loss for ideas, she had limitless creativity for suggesting signature drinks, décor, and floral. She is exceptionally organized, ensuring we stayed on top of all due dates and our vendors were also held to all timelines.
The genuine care Alison put into her work cannot be understated. Our guest list consisted of people from all different ages and cultures. We had several relatives fly in from overseas who did not speak any English. Alison truly went out of her way to ensure everyone felt welcome. She invested time at our rehearsal to speak with and familiarize herself with our close friends and family. This attention to detail paid off on the day of our wedding when Alison noticed one of our bridal party spouses seated at the back of the ceremony. She quickly shuffled seats around prior to the start to ensure our close friends were seated where we wanted them. These gestures were not only noticed by us but were complimented by our family and friends.
On the day of our wedding, we did not have to worry about anything except enjoying our celebration and each other. By that point, Alison had clearly proved to us that she genuinely cared about making our day as perfect as possible. And it absolutely was! We have received endless complements on how smooth our event was and how it was the best wedding most of our guests have ever attended!
You will not find a more caring, dedicated, and experienced planner than Alison. She surpassed our expectations tenfold and we promise you will not regret entrusting your day to her.

Our wedding day turned so much better than we had envisioned because of Alison's impeccable coordination skills and attention to detail. We can't thank her enough! From start to finish, she was a dedicated professional working to make everything happen. We started planning our wedding in the middle of the pandemic and she was very skilled and graceful at helping us stay calm and at addressing changes and concerns as they came up.
As soon as we made the decision to have our wedding at Morris House, she started working on our wedding timeline and vendor coordination. She was amazing! She did such a great job and went beyond our expectations, coordinating with our vendors to bring our vision to life. Her working with our vendors in the background helped alleviate the stress that comes with wedding planning. She built the most detailed timeline from the ground up, and consulted with us to make sure every small detail we wanted was integrated. We were so fortunate to have her guiding us through every step of our wedding planning and keeping us on track. She was very patient and got back to us in a timely fashion through the whole process, especially during the days just prior to our wedding day.
She executed our timeline so effortlessly, and everything ran without a glitch, starting with the rehearsal the day prior to the end of the most special and beautiful wedding day.
We feel such an overwhelming sense of gratitude and can't recommend Alison's service enough!

if alison could make our dream wedding a reality during covid, she really can do anything
Alison provided absolutely fantastic pre-wedding planning and wedding weekend coordination services for my 80-person wedding reception at the Morris House Hotel on July 31, 2021. From the moment that my husband and I inquired with her about availability and up until our wedding weekend ended, Alison was positive, on top of every detail, and facilitated a seamless event and weekend for us.
She was always professional and quick to respond to our endless questions. She helped us to locate our other vendors and maintained consistent contact with them to ensure that all vendors were on the same timeline and page. She helped us to fine tune and adjust our plans to ensure that everything ran smoothly and enjoyably. She was by our side throughout the entire planning process and was on site during the day of our wedding. She helped to transition our wedding day from start to finish. She coordinated with and ensured that all of our vendors arrived on time and performed their appropriate services.
Alison brought an up-beat and fun energy to the planning process and I hope to be able to work with her again for future events. She went the extra mile for us at every turn. She was so thoughtful that she brought out her homemade ice cream for my young niece and nephews during our reception. She helped make our wedding weekend and day a total success and stress-free.
Thank you and regards,
your help, dedication to us, and your love for your job was evident from the day we met you to the day of the wedding
Alison was the On-Site Special Events Coordinator at Morris House Hotel in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for my wedding on August 1,2020, and we could not be grateful enough to have had the help of such a wonderful person. Originally, our wedding was scheduled for October 2020, at a different venue in the city. However, in mid-July 2A20, the pandemic brought our plans to a halt when we had to cancel the event. After searching for places to have an intimate outdoor ceremony, I came across a social media post by Morris House Hotel. I contacted the hotel and was very quickly responded to by Alison with information and availability. The date that we chose for our ceremony was only 2"5 weeks from the time we reached out, and in that very short time Alison went above and beyond our expectations to ensure that our ceremony was absolutely perfect."
Alison is very communicative, diligent, and organized. She was available any time we needed her, even replying to our late night emails, and always making sure we were comfortable reaching out to her with any questions or concerns. She kept everything highly organized, not just on her end at the hotel, but even for us! There were so many details that we wouldn't have thought about but that she was on top of, and she made many great recommendations for vendors around the city. From the moment we booked with her until the moment I walked down the aisle, she was constantly keeping us up to date on what was completed and what needed to be done. She set everything up for the ceremony and broke everything down all on her own so that we wouldn't have to worry about a thing. Additionally, she did a great job at making sure appropriate COVID safety measures were in place.
Alison is also extremely kind and accommodating. She was always offering help and solutions for any problems we were struggling with (e.9. we needed a small speaker for music and did not have one, so she provided her personal one for us to use). She helped my father book a room at the last minute and was so very kind to him. He is not from Philadelphia and so he had many questions, and she was very patient with him and helped him with whatever he needed (he also only had wonderful things to say about her after our wedding). And before walking down the aisle she was not only making sure that everything was set up and ready to go but was also tending to guests and to us as well, bringing us water bottles and helping us calm our nerves.
We were heartbroken after cancelling our original wedding plans, but Alison made our dream day come true and we are forever grateful for her. Whenever people tell us that they are sorry our original plans were cancelled, we can honestly say that we are actually happier with the way things turned out. Alison is such a kind and hard-working person, and it is with great enthusiasm that I say I believe she would make a great addition to a team wherever she may go.
All the best,
we were heartbroken after cancelling our original wedding plans, but alison made our dream day come true and we are forever grateful for her
We had the pleasure of working with Alison Goldberg for our August 2020 wedding reception at the Morris House Hotel in Philadelphia, PA. As the On-Site Special Event Coordinator at the Morris House, Allison made the wedding coordination process flawless from start to finish. In addition to the thoughtfully thinking through the nuts and bolts of putting together a wedding ceremony, Allison was incredibly conscientious and accommodating as we navigated the uncontrollable realities of navigating the COVID-19 Pandemic. Thanks to Alison and her promptness, she meticulous helped us put together an intimate COVID-proof wedding reception.
Alison was detailed oriented, allowing us to handle a messy situation of rearranging plans into her capable hands. Never at any point did we feel like things were not processed in a comprehensive manner. Additionally, she made sure to carry out small personal details the day of our wedding day. We had Mr. & Mrs. balloons that needed helium. The day of the wedding, Alison went to various stores to make sure that when we came to the property, the balloons would be in place ready for us, which was a nice treat! Additionally, Alison has strong emotional intelligence. When there was a stressful or awkward situation, Alison handled it with grace. She was able to provide input and various options to remedy the issue at hand. These are just a few among many examples of how Allison personalized our wedding reception and helped make the day incredibly memorable.
At the end of the day, I’m not sure of what type of reception we would have had without Allison, especially given the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 Pandemic as she was the saving grace to our big day. Alison brings lots of passion and dedication and would be a great asset toward improving the quality of your events and services.

i was able to have a first-hand view of alison’s ability to multitask, take control and get her job done with positivity and grace in a timely manner
My husband Frank and I got married on 9/25/2021 in Lavallette, NJ and we hired Alison to help us plan and organize leading up to our wedding and also be our day-of coordinator. We originally met Alison while we were touring a different venue, and we instantly hit it off! Alison has such a passion for what she does and it shows through her thorough explanations, enthusiasm and amazing organization! Alison was so down to earth and willing to listen to our vision. While we didn’t end up booking through the original venue, we reached out to Alison to help us coordinate a simple beach wedding at a less traditional venue and we couldn’t be happier she was available! We planned a relatively quick wedding (three months) and Alison didn’t bat an eye. She was so calm during the whole process, while also keeping us extremely organized and on track. Each week she had a new ‘To Do’ lists for us to accomplish. She organized our information, reached out to our vendors and made sure everyone was on the same page! She made planning a wedding in three months feel like a breeze!
The day of the wedding was smooth, calm and easy thanks to her ! If something went wrong, I never knew about it (haha). Alison handled the day with grace and made sure every vendor was on time and everything was ran smooth. She even came early in the morning to meet my mom and sisters to help set up the venue !!!! She is so easy to get along with - our whole family loved her! Any errand or little detail that needed to be ironed out- she was the one to figure it out and the first one with an answer or solution. She worked tirelessly through the ceremony, transfer for reception, cocktail hour and reception- setting up, breaking down and helping to pack and organize our things.
Our wedding day was PERFECT because Alison helped us from the start ! We loved Alison from the minute we met her- her sweet, kind, funny and honest personality makes her amazing at what she does! There aren’t enough words to express our gratitude towards her! We love you Alison! Thank you for making our wedding day the best day of our life!

With my full confidence, it is my pleasure to have the opportunity to recommend Alison Goldberg to be a member of your team. I have had the honor to work alongside Alison this past year at the Morris house. During that time, I was impressed by her professionalism and hard work. Her can-do spirit and dedication to her career was most admirable.
As my main point person at the Morris house, I was able to have a first-hand view of Alison’s ability to multitask, take control and get her job done with positivity and grace in a timely manner.
This summer was especially hard due to the COVID-19 pandemic and all the regulations and obstacles surrounding it. The pressures of the job and circumstances did not phase her one bit. Alison’s energy and proactive nature in a high-volume atmosphere made coordinating all of my business events truly a success.
Very rarely do you come across someone who is talented at both big picture ideas and executing small fine details. Allison’s ability in building strong relations and ensuring a successful experience for everyone is just a testament to her amazing personality. If I had the chance to work with her again, I would in a heartbeat. Alison would hands-down be a huge asset to any organization.
Again, I wholeheartedly recommend Alison Goldberg.

our wedding day turned out so much better than we had envisioned because of alison’s impeccable coordination skills and attention to detail.
Alison was both our venue coordinator and our day-of coordinator for our wedding at The Morris House Hotel on October 16, 2021. We had decided to book our wedding at the hotel after a single visit and meeting with Alison. We immediately felt comfortable with her and trusted her knowledge and expertise, so much so that we didn’t look at any other venue. From that point forward, we had eight months to plan our wedding, and Alison hit the ground running.
Throughout the planning process, Alison provided great vendor recommendations. In fact, every vendor we ended up choosing was recommended by her, and they all met or exceeded our expectations. When we worked directly with Alison, her responsiveness was impeccable. She responded quickly to our communications, often at any hour of the day or night via email, text, a phone call, or even in person. She was also so welcoming and responsive to the communication by my out-of-town mother who assisted with the planning. Not only was Alison reliable, but she was also honest, personable, fun, and easy to talk to. Our personalities meshed very well, and we always walked away from our interactions with a smile and breathing a sense of relief.
The day of our wedding was magical and so much fun. All the stress of wedding planning disappeared because Alison handled everything. All details of the day were documented in her extensive timeline, including vendor arrivals, family duties, and lunch deliveries, etc. Because of her careful planning, we actually started the ceremony on time (she even found the best man who happened to be in the restroom when it was his time to walk down the aisle). Though we were involved in reviewing the timeline prior, during the actual day we did not have to lift a single finger. For example, the weather forecast for our wedding day was difficult to predict. The beautiful sunny morning turned on a dime to a giant thunderstorm. Because of Alison’s careful planning, she relied on her contingency plans and communicated with the vendors to switch things up in a matter of minutes. We and the guests were not bothered at all by the changes or even the rainy and windy weather. Alison worked hard ALL night like a magical fairy, fixing any problems before we even knew there was an issue, all while being unobtrusive to us and our guests. To this day we don’t even know what, if anything, went wrong because everything was handled so perfectly!
If Alison could make our dream wedding a reality during COVID, she really can do anything! Thank you SO much for everything, AG!
Love and hugs,
Alison and Alex (The Als)
