My wife and I hired Diana and her team at Passionate Weddings for their month-of coordinating services for a number of reasons. Firstly, it was important for us to have a bilingual coordinator, as my wife's family is Spanish-speaking, and Diana is fluent in three languages. Second, when we spoke with Diana on the phone, her extreme attention to detail stood out among the other coordinators we interviewed. From the moment we started working with her, we were so relieved to have made this choice! Diana was exceptionally responsive to all of our questions; she also provided us with recommendations that ended up panning out very well.

Diana and Bridget with Passionate Weddings were absolutely AMAZING!  They got us where we needed to be, when we needed to be there, all while making it feel seamless to us and our guests. They worked well with the other vendors and provided detailed communications and timelines along the way. They helped us feel at ease the entire day and we completely trusted them to carry out our timeline vision. I couldn’t recommend them enough. Honestly it’s on of the first things I talk about when discussing our wedding day. Just truly in awe of their services and I couldn’t be happier!

"The best money we spent on the wedding!"

My daughter chose Passionate Weddings to provide Month-of-Coordination services and I'm so glad she did. With Diana taking care of the details, we all enjoyed the wedding day with minimum stress on the Bridal party. She is a skilled communicator who stepped in to take care of things when needed and then faded to the background to let the wedding party shine. Her calm demeanor and cheerful presence is an asset. I can't imagine how the day would have gone without her support and skilled direction

Diana was so wonderful to work with. She was the day-of wedding coordinator for our daughter's summer wedding reception at the Hendry House in Arlington, VA. Before the big day, she met us at the site for a walk-through, provided helpful input that guided our pre-planning, reviewed all the contracts and event plans in advance to be fully prepared, and was a lifesaver on the day of the event (including running out to fetch an item that I had forgotten - crackers for the cheese platters!). I can't say enough great things about her.
