Ariana made the whole wedding experience so much fun, and I never felt stressed or pressured while planning my wedding with her. She was referred to us by another vendor, and we are so grateful for that. From the first phone call and meeting, Ariana took the time to understand me and my husband, what we were wanting out of our wedding, our style, and what we wanted the vibe/design to be. I came in really knowing nothing about what I wanted the day to look like. Ariana was patient and kind through my questioning. She took the time to understand what we wanted and from that, helped us
envision an absolutely beautiful and breath taking day. Ariana suggested all of our vendors, and they did not disappoint. She works with professionals and guarantees their quality. On the day of the wedding, I felt very calm and could relax with my friends and family because I knew she had it all under control. She organized transportation, when people should be where and gave an amazing day of timeline to us so there wasn't any confusion. Our wedding day was amazing and we have had so many people tell us it was the best wedding they had been to. We are eternally grateful!

There are not enough kind words to describe Ariana and her Aisle Be With You team! From our first phone conversation, I knew that Ariana was the planner that I had to have for my wedding. After our first meeting/consultation - my family and I were so impressed with her that we hired her on the spot! It was definitely the best decision we could have made. While planning an elaborate, large and detail-filled wedding in seven short months seemed like a daunting task to my mom and I, Ariana made it seem like a breeze! I was worried that with such a short time frame I would have to sacrifice my top venue choice or a few of my vendor choices, but not with Ariana. She ensured that I was able to lock down my ideal venue and vendor dream team! Throughout the busy planning process, Ariana put my mom and I at ease and alleviated the stress of planning a large wedding in a short amount of time. She always came to every meeting with a smile on her face and a cheerful attitude. If she was ever stressed, we could never tell because she always presented herself with such poise and grace. She answered every question that my mom and I had - close to a million I'm sure - and handled important communication with our vendors so that everything always ran smoothly. She was not only my wedding planner, but quickly became a friend to my mom and I as well. She is so kind and calm-natured - something that I'm sure does not come easy with a busy and demanding career. One of the many things I love about Ariana is her attention to detail. Being a girl who is very detail-oriented myself, this was huge for me as I wanted a lot of personal touches incorporated into our rehearsal dinner and wedding.
One thing that was important to me was to keep a cohesive theme and design throughout the weekend and with the help of Ariana we were able to do just that! She helped my mom and I design the invitation suite to include a monogram that was used throughout the wedding weekend for details such as our dance floor monogram, the cocktail napkin design, cigar band design and various other personal touches. I also had a very specific "blush" tone that I wanted for the wedding weekend and she was able to help me get exactly what I had envisioned for the color scheme. Her vast knowledge of the wedding industry, design background and creative mind were so helpful during the planning process! She is INCREDIBLE at her job. Another thing that amazed me about Ariana was her ability to immediately grasp my vision for my rehearsal dinner and wedding and in turn, ultimately, know my style better than I knew it myself! The moment that my husband and I saw the ballroom at our reception, my jaw hit the floor and I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY at how it was more perfect than I could have ever imagined. She nailed every. single. detail. and then some!!! I received so many compliments on the wedding weekend details and design and I credit Ariana and the Aisle Be With You team! She is one of the most talented people I know and my mom, mother-in-law and I are so thankful we got to work with her on my on my husband and I's fabulous wedding weekend! It was truly a dream come true and I would recommend Ariana and her team at Aisle Be With You to anyone and everyone! I cannot thank you all enough. What event can I hire Aisle Be With You for next?!!

Ariana was our literal wedding savior. She was incredible to work with! Super flexible and efficient. While I was in law school full time and my mom was running her company and caring for my grandparents, Ariana made sure everything got done - down to the last detail. She knows the industry and the vendors and lead us in the right direction at every turn. She anticipated our needs and desires and helped us turn our amorphous vision into a beautiful reality. She is phenomenal in every way and we are so blessed to have worked with her!

Ariana made my wedding dreams come true! Without her and her team it wouldn’t have been possible! She made our wedding planning process a lot less stressful and easy! Every meeting we had were so much fun! All of the vendors she recommended for our wedding were nothing but fantastic! Whatever you want, Ariana will make it happen! She is super understanding, detail oriented and very caring. My husband and I are forever grateful to have been able to work with her!

Ariana and the Aisle Be With You team did nothing short of extraordinary. From the minute my mom and I met with her, we knew no more meetings were necessary. I was a full-time student with a part time job, yet I never grew stressful regarding the wedding planning. She gained a sense for my style quickly, and I am confident she could have planned my dream wedding without asking anything further. Throughout the process, she was always kind, always positive, and always knowledgeable and proactive. Nothing ever slipped. The vendors all raved about her and visa versa. We loved each team we worked with. She never steered us wrong! Also, she was always quick to get back to us, regarding questions or her opinion. Each person that becomes engaged, I have and will always suggest Aisle Be With You.
On the day of the wedding, things felt as if they went flawlessly. Everything was more than prepared, and myself and family were, again, stress free. She took my dream and brought it to life. It was fun, beautiful, and everything I could have hoped for out of this day. Her mind-blowing organization and natural talent for design allows you to feel completely at ease and enjoy this time. I was able to relax and “live in the moment,” throughout the engagement process due to Aisle Be With You. I cannot recommend them enough. Having a younger sister, my family is already looking forward and for an excuse to work with her again! We miss Aisle Be With You already!

We loved having Ariana execute and be apart of our day. She made our vision come to life and I know I couldn’t have done it without her. She is kind, attentive to detail, and was able to bring my ideas to life as well as make them better. The day of was also stress free because she was there. You will not regret hiring her!

As James and I are getting settled in Fiji we’ve been talking about how amazing our wedding day was. We hired Ariana with Aisle Be With You about 2 years ago, and it was the absolute best decision we could’ve made. I could never have imagined I would have met someone who shares the same love for details as I do. She was my perfect match and a dream to work with. She has such a calming presence to her, which is absolutely necessary on your big day. Throughout the entire planning process, she took meticulous notes, gave suggestions on how to get the most bang for our buck, and kept us in budget. She made my vision cohesive, and brought my dream wedding to life. She doesn’t treat her weddings as “one size fits all”, but she instead tailors the event to her clients personalities, which brings a great uniqueness to each wedding. She is also so established within the industry that nothing surprises her. She was able to point us in the right direction to vendors who would fit our vision the best.
A common saying when I met my vendors would be, “we love Ariana, she’s the best!”. I 100000% agree with this! The second best decision was her pointing us to Kelly of Poppy Lane florals. They worked so well together as a team and together created such a magical, floral-filled dream wedding. I wish I could go back and relive our wedding day over and over. The entire planning process was so stress free and, dare I say, SUPER FUN! I believe Ariana had everything to do with that. I will miss my daily conversations with Ariana, but I can say with confidence, that I made a life long friend with that sweet girl. If you’re deciding whether or not to hire Ariana then I hope my review will help, because I would hire her over and over a million times. She will make your dream wedding come to life, and I promise you won’t regret your decision. Ariana, if you’re reading this, I love you dearly and already miss you tons. Words can’t thank you enough for everything you did for me and James.

I wouldn't have survived the wedding planning process without Aisle Be With You. At our very first meeting I described to Ariana my dream of a simple & modern surprise wedding & 8 months later it was a reality. Our wedding day was everything we imagined it would be & so much more. I felt confident with each suggestion Ariana made when it came to vendors. It was important to her that we made connections with the vendors & felt confident that they would be able to follow through with the vision we had of our wedding day. The venue, the invitations, the cake, the flowers, the photographer, the music, hair & make-up....pure perfection. Side note: she also somehow knew exactly where I needed to go to find my gorgeous wedding dress! It was hard to let someone else be in control of things but it made those 8 months so much more enjoyable for us! I didn't have to stress over every little detail & if I ever did start panicking about anything Ariana was a text or phone call away to talk me off the ledge.
She kept me in the loop on everything & always seemed to be one step ahead of the game! On the day of our wedding Taylor stepped-in to help & handled it all seamlessly from beginning to end. We had to make a few adjustments to the timeline that day/evening due to possible storms & guests were none the wiser. The next day I woke up feeling sad not only because it went by so quickly but also because I am just now calling Ariana a friend. She truly cares about her Brides & because of that she made sure I was taken care of when she couldn't be there. Thank you Taylor! If you chose Aisle Be With You to plan your wedding (which you'll regret it if you don't), my only advice would be to trust them. They know what they are doing.

5 stars for Aisle Be With You Weddings doesn't do them justice. Can there be a rating of 100 stars or more? I moved to Norman, OK one year ago from Chicago. I got engaged soon after. My first question to myself -- who is going to help me pull off a sleek, modern, city chic wedding in Oklahoma? The answer was easy and simple: Ariana and Taylor. From the first phone call I had with Ariana, I instantly knew she was my girl. You could tell she understood the new, modern look I wanted and with her design background - I had all the confidence she could help me pull off 'city chic' in an Oklahoma barn setting. I also told her I work full time and really didn't want to be bogged down with planning - I can't begin to describe how easy (and ENJOYABLE) she made the process for me. She jumped right in, contacting all her favorite vendors (who ended up becoming all my favorite people), setting and booking appointments for us, helping me make decisions, helping me follow a 'to do' timeline and keeping me on track with our budget.
She has this subtle way of giving you her suggestion and ideas for certain things but letting you make the final decision. In the end, I basically looked to her for every answer. I couldn't make a decision without her because I trusted her eye for design, attention to detail, and opinions so much. When Taylor jumped in toward the end of the planning process, these two were a force to be rekoned with. I had no hesitation that nothing would slip through the cracks on my wedding day. My family and friends kept saying "you are so relaxed." I would reply with "because I know Ariana and Taylor are taking care of everything. They got it covered. I have nothing to worry about." And I was right. My wedding day went off without a hitch thanks to Aisle Be With You. It was the most beautiful day, seamless, fun and enjoyable because of the two of them.

Ariana was everything we could have hoped for in a wedding planner. Funny, smart, thoughful, but most of all problem solver. We planned an outdoor wedding for almost a year and when the weather didn't cooperate the week of she seamlessly re-worked floor plans, made necessary changes, etc. She is a true miracle worker and we can't say enough amazing things about her. Even though all of those changes were last minute she had a plan B (and if I'm being honest probably a C, D and E knowing her) ready to go so we had zero stress the day of the wedding. We truly got to enjoy the day and she pulled everything off with 100% flawless perfection. She saved us so much time and stress by guiding us to the right vendors.....of which we loved every single one. She is a MUST MUST MUST for your wedding. My husband and I both agree she was the best money we spent on the whole entire wedding. Before you do anything else, call Ariana and book her ASAP.

I cannot say enough about Ariana with Aisle Be With You. Due to a hurricane, we had one week to relocate our entire wedding and plan it from scratch. She did this in FIVE days and it turned out more beautiful than my destination wedding would’ve been! I cannot stop thinking about my day and it turned out perfectly because of her. The entire week she just kept texting telling me not to stress because she’s got this. And she did!! I will recommend her to anyone who ever is even considering a planner. She is a must.

As I was a wedding coordinator for 16 years at a church in Nichols Hills I had seen it all. For all those years I worked with the premiere coordinators and vendors in town. After being behind the scenes at over 100 incredible weddings, I was very definite and knew exactly the type of wedding we wanted for our daughter and son-in-law. Therefore I was a mother of the bride with very specific tastes and wishes-a potential momzilla-and I was skeptical that anyone could fulfill them how I hoped. But then I met Ariana Simms, of Aisle Be With You. Ariana is EXTREMELY gifted. Her team is truly thorough, competent, friendly and professional.
She is such a calming influence on what can be a very stressful process. Ariana is able to achieve what a bride and groom want. She is able to guide without being controlling, and seemingly effortlessly she can help the bride and groom who don't know where to start or she can facilitate the wishes of very specific, exacting clients-(me!). She knows how to make your every imagining come to life while not missing the technicalities of religious ceremony or the practical aspects of getting married.
She is able to allow you to be as involved or uninvolved as you wish. As a veteran party coordinator who is used to doing things myself I was so worried that I might do too much to be able to enjoy the event, but Ariana solved that for me. Every single vendor she led us to was a joy to work with, and a true artist at their milieu. Every one fulfilled their assignments over and above our hopes. My daughter was able to sit back and relax as plans were made knowing that Ariana had truly listened to her preferences. She and the groom, their wedding party, and our families showed up on the day able to enjoy the beauty of the event as it unfolded. This was beyond what I thought possible! She made our day magical-and we are so grateful to her!! Thank you Ariana!!

The first thing my daughter and I did when we found out she was getting married was meet with Ariana Simms. She came highly recommended from another vendor. We both knew immediately that we wanted to work with her! After talking with my daughter, Christyn, for a while she came up with a vision for her wedding that was exactly what we had in mind but we wouldn’t have known how to express! Honestly, looking back, at that point we could’ve let her loose and not met again. All of her ideas, her attention to detail and her follow through made this the easiest, most enjoyable experience ever!
She had amazing communication between us both. Christyn was in school at the time and Ariana was so flexible to work around her schedule and answer emails and calls at odd hours. We both got to thoroughly enjoy every minute with no stress because when I say she took care of everything-I mean EVERYTHING! There are not words for me to get across how highly we think of her. My other daughter was involved in the planning process as well, we all consider Ariana a friend now and will definitely use her again!

My daughter and I worked with Ariana for over a year getting ready for her wedding. Ariana was completely professional, organized and creative and made my daughter's dreams come true while at the same time she was warm, fun and became a part of our family. Her team of vendors were amazing, as was Taylor, her assistant. On the day of the wedding, everything was beautiful and perfect and I was able to enjoy the lovely evening virtually stress free. Our friends and family can't stop talking about it and neither can we!

I don’t know where to start with Ariana. She is hands down the best wedding planner there is! She helped me wrangle in all my ideas and made the dream wedding a real life thing! Her attention to detail is beyond incredible! She helped me handle everything from the big picture venue to the little detailed thank you cards. Without her I would have never thought about the little things that made our wedding the most perfect day ever! We will forever be grateful to her for helping create the most perfect day! She helped calm my nerves even if it was just a late night text to make sure I’m getting my to do list done. Her and Taylor really pulled all the vendors together down to the minute on the day of our wedding!
I couldn’t tell you if anything went wrong (which I highly doubt it did) during the set up because she had the most perfect timeline planned out and handle things without breaking a sweat! She also made sure we had everything we needed during our wedding and stuck around until the end! She knows this industry inside and out! Her recommendations for everything were so great! She truly only does business with the top notch vendors. At least I feel that way because everyone was wonderful and so nice and accommodating. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Ariana! None of this would have happened without you!! —The Weigel’s

I was really lucky to have Ariana as my planner.
She's kind of a big deal in the wedding world.
I had 6 months to prepare for my wedding and had no clue about what to do other than picking my venue. I picked out my venue first at Gaillardia Country Club and asked the coordinator if she had any suggestions and she said "they're all fine..but Ariana... She's one of the best". Venues and vendors don't lie! I contacted her that night and managed to squeeze myself in as her last bride of the season. She was also 37 weeks pregnant and popped out an adorable bundle of cuteness and Ariana worked through it all.
I had no idea there was so much involved in wedding planning. Because of Ariana I had fun and absolutely no stress. My wedding was spectacular and so much fun. I enjoyed my wedding day and didn't lift a finger with any of the set up because Ariana was there directing everything. I got to enjoy being a bride and celebrating with my husband, friends, and family. My reception was simply amazing and exceeded all my expectations and vision.
-Ariana sent me a nifty to-do list every month that was fun to follow through
-She recommended to me awesome vendors like make up artists, photographers, videographers, and all I had to do was choose and I ended up with the best team of vendors
-She helped me stay within budget
-She booked all my vendors for me after I chose them and did all the communication and set up
-She got me Pen Wedding videography
-My photographer was so good. My engagement and wedding photos look incredible.
-Ariana's schedule was so flexible, she catered to me in everything.
-She really pays attention to detail and made sure everything was perfect-Ariana has an incredible knowledge base. She had insight and suggestions for everything.-I flooded her with emails on a daily basis and always got answers back within hours
-She went with me to all my appointments
-I had no clue on linen design and she guided me though the rental process and made my reception look magical
-I changed my mind several times and told Ariana and she immediately contacted the right people for the changes
-I wanted specific things for my wedding and Ariana made it happen
-Ariana is so much fun and made me laugh everytime I met up with her.
-She has great people skill and was sweet to all my family and friends
-All my vendors rave about Ariana and love her because she does such a great job coordinating with them
-The night before my wedding, I had to make a change to my timeline and texted her at midnight. Immediately got a reply "no problem, done!"
-My cake was jaw dropping awesome, made by a cake artist Ariana recommended and helped me design
-Ariana took my vision of my reception and took out to the next level. It was gorgeous.
-Her other wedding planner, Taylor, was pretty cool too
-It's been a week since my wedding and I'm having post wedding planning adjustment issues because I keep checking my email expecting an email from Ariana

Ariana is absolutely amazing! The first thing I told my husband when we knew our daughter had found her prince. was I cant plan this size of wedding by myself. We have to find a planner!!!!! Within just minutes into the first meeting, we knew she was our girl!! By far the best decision we made was picking our sweet angel Ariana. That's what I call her! She made our daughter's dream wedding come true!! The day of the wedding, I was able to spend the day with my daughter and enjoy the day. Ariana took care of every detail. If there was a problem, I never knew it! Ariana has an another wedding planner, Taylor, who is just a doll, and whenever I needed anything she was so helpful. Ariana will be a lifelong friend. I highly recommend Aisle Be With You, if you are looking for a planner! She is your girl!!!!
