“I highly recommend Bella Celebrations and Dina Balatti because of her professionalism, upbeat attitude and *fine-tuned organizational skills*. Dina was on top of her game with planning. She knew the ins and outs of what we wanted and therefore ran the day beautifully. We could have NEVER done it without her. She was our angel!!”
“Dina is honest, fun, professional, flexible, supportive, very experienced, organized and a pleasure to work with. She has been doing this work for years—her years of experience and connections in the industry show every step of the way. I loved that! I created the day, *she juiced it up*, and together we made magic happen in the end. A gem of a company.”
“Looking back on it, life would have much easier if I’d found Dina earlier in the planning process! I was absolutely happy with everything. Dina is thorough, diligent, devoted, trustworthy, and always available. Her calm reassurance was *the antidote to the stress monster*. Her sense of flow and ability to manage everything down to the smallest details really impressed me. She really listened and quickly assessed the type of wedding we were putting together, making recommendations that saved me time and put my mind at ease knowing they would be reliable and quality professionals.”
“Dina is wonderful to work with. She is thoughtful and has *great ideas and instincts*. Our wedding day was perfect in large part due to her.”
“As Southern California bride planning a wedding in Northern California, I could not have been happier with the services provided by Dina. She researched venues and visited them with me. She made vendor recommendations and set up itineraries/appointments with all involved. Dina’s attention to every detail, and follow-through made the process truly effortless. I cannot imagine a better event. Bella Celebrations is *the complete package*.”
