Where to begin? Thank you Dickie from the bottom of our hearts! That feels like a good place to start. Our wedding was absolutely more than we could have asked [for] or imagined and you were such an integral part in making it all so wonderful! What a blessing to have our closest friends, family and neighbors there to celebrate our union. We have not stopped hearing from guests about how well taken care of/spoiled they felt. What a gift for our loved ones to also feel the love! Thank you for all of your hard work over the past six months. Your energy and genuine nature made the planning process so much fun and I truly miss interacting with you on a regular basis. I think Adam said it best when he said you are the perfect mix of calm and competent. You are that and so much more. I hope you are relaxing and enjoying time with family – you deserve it! We are so grateful for you and feel lucky our paths crossed.

all our love and gratitude, allie + adam

Words cannot express our sincere gratitude to Dickie and Maureen of Just a Little Ditty for the truly breathtaking wedding they helped us plan for our daughter. Our challenge was to host a wedding for 300 out-of-town guests on a farm outside of Lexington, Virginia where our daughter and our new son-in-law attended college – and to add to the complexity, we were making most of the arrangements from out of state. The moment we interviewed Dickie and Maureen, we knew that they were the right team for us.

From planning meetings, site visits, tastings and vendor visits, to numerous conference calls, emails and texts with Dickie and Maureen, they were right there beside us providing their expert guidance. [However] the true test was the wedding. From the hotels and transportation to the carefully orchestrated wedding ceremony and truly spectacular floral design and lighting throughout the beautiful sailcloth reception/dinner tent and barn, Dickie and Maureen made sure each and every detail was thoughtfully and tastefully coordinated. During the entire wedding day and all the way through the reception, we did not think about logistics. Because of Dickie’s and Maureen’s meticulous planning, we were able to focus on being sure our daughter’s ceremony was meaningful and that our guests felt welcome and thoroughly enjoyed the reception. Once the planning was done, we left the execution to Dickie and Maureen, and we were able to enjoy the entire experience with our family and friends.

We are “tough customers” when it comes to entertaining. We do not mind paying for superior quality, but we expect execution and delivery. Dickie and Maureen sold us on what could be done (not undersold, as the saying goes) – and they overdelivered. In less than two weeks after the wedding, we literally have received dozens of letters, texts, emails and calls from family and friends telling us that our daughter’s wedding was the most meaningful, joyful and spectacular wedding they have ever attended. And, we concur. Looking back, we felt like we were visitors dropped into the most amazing fairly-tale wedding – and yet it was our daughter’s wedding.

Last fall, we started a business relationship with Just a Little Ditty. By the time of the wedding this summer, we gained two new family friends in Dickie and Maureen (who we now fondly refer to as our new “Charlottesville daughters”).

Marilyn was an absolute JOY to work with. She made the most special day of our lives run flawlessly. She helped us with everything from the months leading up to the wedding, to the rehearsal dinner and the day of. She helped us form a very detailed timeline to ensure the day ran smoothly, she was extremely organized and on top of everything. With so much experience in events, Marilyn was so helpful when it came down to making decisions about so many little details. As we have said many times…if there was something that did not go according to plan on our wedding day, we have yet to realize it! Thank you for your tremendous efforts in making our wedding day the most special day of our lives. It wouldn’t have been nearly as easy without you!

It’s impossible to capture just how great Emily is to work with and how important she was to making our wedding a success. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and a wonderful person to have around when stress levels started rising. In the occasional sea of chaos that a wedding can be, she was always calm, cool, collected, sympathetic, and helpful. She met every single need we had, sometimes before we even knew we needed her. Emily helped get 150 guests from one ballroom to another, organized cocktail hour, got our band, photographer, and hair/makeup vendors set up and fed, made some to-go boxes for us, and even jumped in with some tissues and eye drops when the emotions got the better of us. We had a perfect wedding day thanks in huge part to Emily, and if you’re lucky enough to work with her, your wedding will be perfect, too
