"Denise and her team were super helpful with coordination and execution of my DIY wedding. They eased my stress dramatically and worked very hard to make sure I had a great day and night. Thank you!! " ~ Kristine (Month of Coordination, Asbury, NJ)

"Denise and her team did a wonderful job coordinating all of the many pieces of my wedding! I booked Brilliant Affairs for my Month of Coordination and it was a huge help with all the last minute items and crunch time! Thank you" Brilliant Affairs! ~ Rebecca (Month of Coordination, Berlin, NJ)

Denise is very punctual with response time. She showed up on time to the rehearsal dinner and was there as I entered the church to get dressed. Victoria & Taylor were super sweet and helpful. They were very professional! I loved the fact that everything was taken care of at the venue while at was at the church, since my ceremony and reception were at different locations. Team work makes a dream work! Thank you for your services Brilliant Affairs..~ Imani (Day of Coordination Sewell and Williamstown, NJ)

Denise was unbelievably helpful in making my wedding day go smoothly. She even arrived the night before so she could attend my rehearsal dinner and meet my wedding party! On the day of the wedding, she surprised me by bringing an additional helper, and both of them proved to be total lifesavers—they set up our decorations so everything looked perfect, made sure the gifts and cards were safely put away at the end of the night, and even pinned up my wedding dress when the bustle fell apart at the last minute! I truly cannot recommend her enough. Denise is an absolute joy to work with, is an excellent communicator and maintains fair prices. I’m so grateful she worked with us! ~ Joanna (Month of Coordination, Cape May, NJ) 

Denise was the most punctual out of all of my vendors, she was quick to respond to any email I sent. She made sure everything was great the day of and made it stress free for us. She made sure all the details and planning I put into the décor came to life. ~ Rachel (Day of Coordination, Seaside Heights, NJ)

I used Brilliant Affairs for the day of my daughter's wedding in September. I was fortunate to hire Denise close to the wedding date to help the ceremony and reception run smoothly. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable and helped us coordinate the ceremony the way we wanted. Her assistant Victoria was a gem as well. They helped us set up the reception hall during cocktails when we were with guests, and blended in so that they were not noticeable during important moments. Did I mention Denise is extremely prompt? She never was never late for consultation, rehearsal and of course the wedding day itself and had lots of good suggestions with placement of tables inside and outside of venue for best flow. I could not have done this wedding without Brilliant Affairs! ~ Lisa (Day of Coordination - Philadelphia, PA)

Where to start! We are so grateful to hire Brilliant Affairs for coordinating our day! I mean Denise and her assistants kept me calm, organize and was on top of everything! I had a vision and she made it a reality and perfected it. Me and my husband especially my husband found it to be a perfect match with Brilliant Affairs we loved everything! Thank you so much for making it an unforgettable night and a memory to cherish forever! ~ Paola (Month of Coordination, Langhorne, PA)

Denise and Taylor made it possible for me to relax on my big day. Knowing they had everything handled allowed me to get ready in peace and enjoy those special moments with my family that were some of my favorites of the day. I didn't have to deal with vendor questions or last minute mishaps, and I could just enjoy being a bride. I would recommend them to anyone who wants peace of mind on their wedding day, because the value of that is priceless. ~ Dana (Day of Coordination, Center City Philadelphia, PA)

"How do I begin to review Denise and Brilliant Affairs?? To say I would not have had a wedding without her is a start! I am new to NJ and was completely overwhelmed at, not just planning a wedding, but planning a wedding in an area where I am unfamiliar. I really needed someone who has experience and connections. Oh and we wanted to get married in 6 months from the start of the planning. THE BEST WEDDING DECISION I MADE was to hire Denise. Denise is the consummate professional and really listened to us and got to know us well. She was able to take our crazy ideas and quirks and incorporate them into a personal and fun wedding. She guided us all through the planning, finding excellent vendors via her contacts and experience. She talked this bride off the ledge a few times. Very responsive, thorough and kept us on track for tasks and timing. Denise really had everything covered. My wedding day was calm and I was able to focus on the moment and enjoy it, knowing I didn't have to worry about any details. I also have a new friend now in NJ! THANK YOU DENISE!!!" ~ (Full Planning, Bradford Estate, Hainesport, NJ)

"We got the month of services which was well worth it! Coordinating all the vendors was a breeze thanks to her. We also really enjoyed getting to know her a bit, she is funny, kind, and knows what she's doing! On top of that, she is very affordable, if you're on the fence about hiring someone, or expanding your service to month of, do it with Denise!" ~ Caroline (Month of Coordination, Adventure Aquarium, Camden, NJ)

"Denise is fantastic; we had a blast working with her. She was helpful, fun, and really kept things under control on our big day. She kept in touch throughout the process, helped confirm and coordinate all our vendors, and had plenty of helpful tips. Absolutely worth the price for month of services that she provided!" ~ Matt (Month of Coordination, Adventure Aquarium, Camden, NJ)

"Denise was a real pleasure to work with! She was highly organized and detail oriented from the start, which is exactly what we hoped for from our wedding day coordinator. However, what my husband and I liked even more about her was her ability to stay relaxed and make decisions on our behalf on our wedding day, because we were so busy with our own preparations. She also showed up early on our big day and was open to last minute changes in our ceremony. She's a true professional, and we highly recommend her to other couples looking for help in coordinating their wedding!" ~  Danelle (Day of Coordination, New Hope, PA)

"Denise was extremely helpful on the day of my reception. She arrived on time and made sure operations ran smooth. She was there for me when the bartender ran out of ice. Denise left the party to bring in more. Thank you Denise for allowing me to enjoy my family and friends without worries!" ~ Samantha (Day of Coordination, Bethlehem, PA)

"We didn’t pay for the full package just day of coordinating but Denise and her assistant were great! They helped with our very hectic cultural event. They kept all vendors in the know. And kept me informed of all things that were happening. Thanks guys for all your help!" ~ Hope (Day of Coordination, Mt. Laurel, NJ)

"Denise and her assistant Taylor were great! Everything was absolutely perfect. For her day-of coordinating service she assisted with everything from venue set-up and decorating, to helping organize people for pictures. Denise and Taylor really made our day so much easier and stress free. Would recommend her to anyone!" ~ Meghan and Matthew (Day of Coordination, Moorestown, NJ)

"Denise and her staff are absolutely AMAZING!! She is so organized and made sure my day was flawless! I did not have to worry about anything, and my husband and I actually got to enjoy our wedding. I can't thank her enough for making my day so stress free! I highly recommend her for all your wedding planning needs." ~ Dorothy (Month of Coordination, Moorestown, NJ)

"I cannot say enough about how amazing Denise is to work with. The candy bar at my January 13, 2018 wedding was beyond my expectations. I had almost 100 lbs. of candy for the bar. Her selections were unmatched by any other vendor I looked at (I looked at a lot!). The jars, scoops, and bags (with personal labels) were so beautiful and professional. We supplied her with some photos and other decorations and she set up the bar the day of with everything we gave her and she even added her own touches that made it truly beautiful. Denise was so easy to communicate with and responded quickly. I choose to pay for the candy bar a little at a time using PayPal and Denise was sure to send me an email to let me know she received a payment every time! I will update this with a photo or two once I get them from my Photographer (the candy bar looked so good that everyone went up there during dinner and I didn't even get a chance to take a picture before people went for it!). If you are looking for amazing quality, service, design, and price for your candy bar you found it here in Brilliant Affairs!!!" ~ Samantha (Candy Buffet, Berlin, NJ)

"Denise helped to make my wedding day run smoothly and professionally. She has the art of blending in yet getting things done so seamlessly. I am so thankful I chose her to help with my special day!" ~ Karlena (Day of Coordination, Sewell, NJ)

"Denise is great! She helped me out a lot. Everyone LOVED the candy buffet, it was beautiful. I will definitely use again in the future! I wish I had taken a picture of it." ~ Veronica (Candy Buffet Brown Mills, NJ)

"Denise was amazing! She brought 2 assistants with her and they were all super sweet, hard working and proactive. It was quite the DIY wedding but they saw my vision and entirely executed what I wanted. They did what they had to do to make sure everyone and the bride was happy. It was a pleasure having Denise and her crew there. They arrived early and came ready to work and everything worked out wonderfully. I would definitely recommend Denise to any bride who needs help, whether it is planning the whole thing or for day of support, Brilliant Affairs will get the job done! Thank you soo much for all your help and guidance, you are much appreciated" ~ Hannah & Michael (Day of Coordinator, Montclair, NJ)

"Denise was a pleasure to work with. She created a beautiful fun candy display for our hotel's grand opening party. Brilliant Affairs matched our themed to a T. I would defiantly used this company again for future events." ~ Alyssa (Candy Buffet, Mount Laurel, NJ)


"​Brilliant Affairs was simply that - brilliant. I had hired them as our month-of coordinators and could not imagine having this wedding without them. They were wonderful with coordinating with all of our vendors and setting up a timeline for the big day, as well as managing everything from set-up to break-down the day of. It was such a relief knowing that all of the small details and staff coordination was taken care of, and I could spend all of my time enjoying the day with the people closest to us. Denise, Mia, and Nicole were professional and very attentive - they handled anything that we needed, including printing our vows at the last minute, re-doing a DIY Bar Menu sign the day before, and going back to our hotel room to grab my sandals when my heels got too uncomfortable on the dance floor! It was a joy having them help out with our wedding, and I would really recommend them to anyone looking for month-of or day-of coordinators!" ​​​~ Olga and Michael (Month of Coordination, Atlantic City, NJ)

"I was the officiate of the wedding. Denise made sure everything ran smoothly and on time. It was one of the best weddings I have attended. I believe it was a true fairy tale experience. With so many details to attend to at such an event having Brillant Affairs to coordinate everything was a God send!" ~ Susan (Atlantic City, NJ)

​"​I cannot praise Denise and Mia enough for how hard they worked to make my daughter's wedding a success. Denise came quite a distance to my daughter's house for an initial meeting.  She and Mia came to the venue a month before the wedding to go o over details and "walk through" the ceremony outdoors. On the day of the wedding, Denise personally met with the vendors; the band, the florist, the wedding cake baker, freeing me up to enjoy the day. I should mention that Denise brought assistants at no cost to me to ensure that everything went well. Further, they stayed to the very end of the party, ensuring that I got all the gifts before they left. I would highly recommend Brilliant Affairs."  ~ Diana (Month of Coordination, Atlantic City, NJ)

​​​"Everything was amazing about the candy buffet display that Brilliant Affairs did for my daughter's voice recital reception. After several phone conferences and emails to discuss the design details and concepts Denise and her team set up an elegant black, white, and silver candy buffet and also included a few personal touches that truly surprised me! Denise and her amazing team anticipated my every need. They arrived early and took care of all of the details from set up to clean up. I was truly worry free and able to enjoy the event as well entertain our guests. My daughter and our guest raved about the presentation and decor! Thank you Brilliant Affairs for the fabulous job!" ~Alysia (custom candy buffet Princeton, NJ)

"Brilliant Affairs Nails It!!
We hired Denise as our day of coordinator, and we are so thankful that we did! We stayed in touch leading up to the big day, including meeting with the staff of the venue weeks beforehand to see the space and confirm the layout of decorations, etc. She handled everything on the day of the wedding so we could just relax and enjoy being with our friends and family. What small issues did come up she handled on the fly and with minimal intrusion. It is definitely worth hiring Brilliant Affairs to manage your event; their support beforehand and on the day of cannot be over-emphasized. We highly recommend their services! ​​~ Rachel and Jeremiah (day of coordination, New Liberty Distillery, Philadelphia, PA)

​​" Denise was our day-of-decorator for our November wedding, and an absolute pleasure to work with. My fiancé and I are a DIY couple and made all of our wedding decor ourselves, but we hired Denise to set everything up for us in the venue on our wedding day. From day one, Denise was organized and quick to respond to emails. We held an initial walk through of our venue so she could get a sense of the space, and she quickly caught on to our decor theme and style (romantic wood, candles, and greenery). The majority of our communication was via email, but we felt confident the Denise was ready to make our space beautiful based on the pictures we shared. The day of the wedding we arrived at the venue and were beyond thrilled. Our cocktail space decor looked fantastic, and our centerpieces were arranged in a way that was even better than we planned on/envisioned! Denise’s keen eye had guests raving. I would highly recommend Denise to any DIY bride that needs an extra hand!" ~ Dani and Nathan (customized planning, Front and Palmer, Philadelphia, PA)

"I contacted Denise to be a "day of" coordinator for our wedding day, September 25, 2016. We had a lot of decorations and homemade touches that we were bringing ourselves and I wanted to ensure it was all set up without having to stress on the day of the wedding. Denise and her team were absolute perfection. I spoke to and met with Denise a few times before the wedding. She came to our rehearsal and did a walk through with us. I gave her all of the info and details on how I envisioned things and Denise made it all happen. They arrived at our location on the day of and did a phenomenal job setting up. I didn't have to worry about a thing. The team was great throughout the day. They were always there in case we needed or wanted something. At the end of the night they did an amazing job breaking everything down and packing it away exactly as it had come. The venue we were at also commented on how excellent Denise and her team were and how great they were to work with. (I consider that a pretty great comment considering wedding venues work with hundreds of planners and vendors)." ~ Sarah (Wedding Day of Coordination, Sicklerville, NJ)

"I HIGHLY recommend Brilliant Affairs. I recently hired them to do a candy bar for my wedding and what a success! Denise was extremely personable and easy to communicate with. She was very detail oriented as well as professional. She set everything up and broke everything down. She was quick to refill any containers that were running low. The pricing was BEYOND reasonable. My guests loved the variety of candy and it was a great favor. Overall, she was wonderful and I couldn't be more pleased." ~ Rebecca, (Customized Candy Buffet, Lancaster, PA)

​​"We decided to hire a month of coordinator so that we were not stressing over all the details. Denise met with us and helped create time lines that were realistic and helpful. She picked up all decorations and gift bags and made sure they got to the right places. She knew every detail we wanted and made sure it happened. Denise was seriously put to work when we had to change our rehearsal to the actual wedding due to the blizzard. She contacted all the vendors and checked to see if they could come both days. Everything went perfect and we had a wonderful weekend wedding, ceremony on Friday, reception on Saturday, brunch on Sunday without sacrificing anything. Thank you Denise." ~ Kelly & Juan (Month of Coordination - Swedesboro and Mt Laurel, NJ)
