My name is Karen Hirsh, and I am the owner of Perfectly Celebrated Ltd., providing wedding day management services (also referred to as day of coordination) and officiating services for weddings and events in the greater Cleveland area.
I'm interrupting this business-like story to get real with you. I know why you're here - you're thinking about your wedding day and wondering how the heck you're going to get all the stuff done that needs done, right? I've been there. I've also been the mother of the bride who had to take care of everything to make sure her daughter's wedding went off without a hitch. Let me tell you, it sucked. The wedding was beautiful, but since I was doing all the "stuff", I didn't get a chance to enjoy it. I don't have much memory of the day because I was running around so much - and I really regret it.
I could tell you all about my 20 years of experience in event and wedding coordination or my fabulous attention to detail, but I want you to know that the reason I started this company is because I didn't want anyone to have the experience I did. Sure, you can ask your friends and family to help you out on your wedding day, but don't you want them to be able to enjoy the day with you? Oh, and also, I love wedding cake.
PS, I'm also an ordained officiant, registered with the State of Ohio. Fun fact...I saw an episode of Grey's Anatomy where the officiant didn't show up because she missed the last ferry or broke her foot, or something like that. At that moment, I thought that I should be ordained in case of an emergency at a wedding I'm coordinating. Little did I know how much I'd enjoy marrying two people who are in love. I meet with my couples in person and ask some uncomfortably personal questions - I want to hear about your love story! This helps me write a personalized ceremony that is perfect for you.
So, at the end of the day, it's all about you and your person. I want you, your friends, and your family to have a great time without worrying about all the "stuff".
That's the real me in a nutshell.
