Dear Chonlada, Where do I even begin? I feel as though I’m writing a break-up letter because it’s been such a long time and I’m not really ready to acknowledge that it’s over! You and your team produced the happiest day of our lives!
When I first contacted you in late 2013, you stood out from the other Phuket Wedding planners because you were always so prompt to reply and answered EVERY question I emailed you (sometimes instantaneously!).
I felt that you valued my input, and that my wedding wasn’t going to follow some cookie-cutter template. As a self-confessed control-freak, the idea of having a wedding overseas was only possible if I found someone I could really trust.
Throughout the planning process you were always so open to different ideas and made it so much fun. I will remember our skype conversations with you singing and dancing to songs that you thought would be good for the wedding. You were always very honest with us, there was never any bias. At one point, Matt and I considered changing the venue due to some negative reviews we read online. That very week you visited the venue and noted all the positives and negatives and fed them back to us. The decision was ours to make and we felt very supported by you.
I’d also like to make a special note about May. Wow! What a gem! She is so creative, funny and kind. You two make an absolute dream team! Brides to be who are a searching for a wedding planner, you only get to see their end product in photos and videos, and of course it will always look beautiful. But don’t forget about all the background work that goes on. Chonlada and May were there from the very beginning to the very end making sure the day runs effortlessly for you (I went to sleep at 1am and she was still around packing up!). Chonlada, you laughed at my relaxed state on the wedding day because I was lying on the couch eating a banana 5 minutes before the bridal procession. That was only possible because I trusted entirely that you had everything under control, and you did!
Thank you a thousand times. You are the perfect balance of professionalism, efficiency, humor and kindness. I can’t wait to see all the weddings you produce in the future and I would recommend you in a heart beat! I will miss you and our regular emails, I wish I could have another wedding!
Lots of love,
