What's month-of coordination (& why this "wedding fairy coordinator goddess" makes it SO easy!)

We introduced you to one of our event planning besties, Stephanie Gatton Events, last year and you guys made it your business to book her. Offbeat couples figured her background in stage managing and top-notch organizational skills would take their wedding planning to epic levels, and THEY DID.

With another year of planning kick-ass weddings under her belt (making it 10+ years total!), Stephanie has only gotten better. Let's see what she's been up to in the New York area (and WAY beyond!). (Hint: it's got a lot to do with month-of coordination AND a discount for you!)
