It was so helpful to have Bliss by Sam help plan my Duke Chapel wedding this past March. I was going through a particularly stressful year, and had no experience planning weddings. Bliss by Sam helped fill in the gaps and helped me locate vendors such as my florist, who was a big success. I had a "Partial Planning Package" and regret not hiring a wedding planner earlier in the process, before I had picked out so many of the vendors. Samantha and several Bliss by Sam representatives showed up to help with all the details the weekend of the wedding. When I started to get stressed out about a detail early in the day, Samantha took it over from me so I did not have to think about it again. And from then on, I did not have any worries on my wedding day. I highly recommend hiring a wedding planner for anyone planning a wedding, especially if you do not know much about weddings.

Sam and Rachel are so much fun to work with and I can relax and know that they are handling all the necessary details behind the scenes of the weddings we do together. Their enthusiasm and upbeat attitude is contagious! They work closely with their couples and know exactly their vision and bring it to fruition with finesse! They are both efficient, professional and extremely pleasant to work with. I am always pleased to learn that they are involved with weddings I will be officiating. I can highly recommend Bliss by Sam!
