Amazing all around
I hired Rachael last August to plan a “regular” wedding in May. COVID pushed us to September with several twists and turns along the way.Sent on 02/08/2021
Rachael was amazing through all of it. I was pushing to elope at one point and Rachael kept telling me we’d have a great event regardless of the circumstances.
It was so much better than I could’ve imagined — a perfect evening for us and our families. Rachael kept everything running perfectly and I never had to worry about the details.
After midnight I came back into the restaurant to use the restroom and Rachael was downstairs alone. I asked what she was doing and she said, “I always stay until the end.” I was just blown away.
Thank you both for a wonderful day and for bearing with me — not a difficult bride per se, but definitely a difficult person — through it all.

Rachael was amazing and super supportive for our wedding. She went above and beyond to help with all the annoying final details, coordinated with all the vendors, and basically managed the whole event flawlessly. It was so nice to be able to be present and enjoy my wedding knowing that Rachael was taking care of everything. Highly recommend for a stress-free event!Sent on 02/05/2021

The most magical balance of calm, detail, creativity, and compassion - a perfect wedding and event planner to have by your side!
My now husband and I were married in June 2019 and had the good fortune of finding Rachael, now with A Fine Fete!
She worked with us from almost the beginning in helping us make sure our wedding was a celebration that encompassed our values, community, and desire to have a great time.
She was thoughtful about helping us find vendors that matched not only our aesthetics, but also our intentions. Wedding planning can be overwhelming and we didn't want to let the process overshadow the purpose - two people and their loved ones - connecting for a party AND a future life.
Rachael has a calm presence, pays extraordinary attention to detail, shines with creativity, and shows up with compassion.
You won't regret having her by your side for any future wedding or events and you just might also want to make her a post-wedding friend!Sent on 02/04/2021
A Fine Fete's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words! Your wedding was so unique and filled with so many personal details, which I love!! You and Phil have so many fabulous people who love you watching that come together was truly memorable!

With a background in politics, luxury retail and corporate experience she knows how important service and experiences are. She values always delivering top notch customer service to her clients and vendors but also in creating an unforgettable experience for both her clients and their guests.
Rachael loves being creative and working with clients to think up big ideas, even if they might be a bit crazy. She believes anything can be achieved with an open imagination, clear vision, proper planning, graciousness and the ability to laugh.
