Sandy made our fairytale dreams come true!

Sandy Baxter is a wedding planning guru! From phone calls to facetimes to detailed emails, I could always count on Sandy to be there for me and on top of her game when it came to planning! Not only was she an amazing planner and organizer, but she made me feel like I was the only bride she was working with. The attention to detail and attention to what my husband and I鈥檚 priorities were was off the charts. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing day and wedding planning experience!

Awesome Wedding Coordinator

Sandy Baxter was an awesome Wedding Coordinator for my daughter鈥檚 wedding. Sandy鈥檚 expertise from beginning to end made the day go perfectly. Her attention to a detailed timeline reassured everyone when and where they should be during the important moments of the day. Sandy discussed things throughout our conversations that we would not have thought about ourselves. She was a true professional. Sandy and Will allowed my daughter and her husband to focus and enjoy their special day. They were a pleasure to work with.

Wedding Coordinator BEYOND Your Dreams

Baxters Creative Events did so much more than just deliver a high-quality service to bring my dream wedding to life. Sandy was attentive and listened to all of my requests. She was able to provide guidance, suggestions, and advice throughout the entire wedding planning process. With a wedding, there are so many details that come along with planning that I was not aware of - because of Sandy, on the day of my wedding, everything ran so smoothly. She was fully prepared to ensure that she knew my preferences for every little detail so that I had nothing to worry about on the day of my wedding. She took the lead and made sure that all my vendors had a schedule to follow and that she was the point of contact, so I would not be bothered by anything that could possibly cause me stress. In addition to the schedules she created for the vendors, she also made schedules for each of my wedding parties. Sandy and I really grew to know one another during our wedding planning. She became more to me than just my wedding coordinator. She became family to my husband and I. She will forever hold a special place in my heart, and that was way more than I could have ever expected from my wedding coordinator. She truly showed, through all of her dedicated work, how passionate she is about everything she does.
