Sandy is Ah-mazing
I don't know where to begin, I hired Sandy in November of 2017. Over the past year and a half of working with her, she has proven herself deserving of the 5 stars I, and so many others, have given her. She does everything you would expect a planner to do, keeping you on schedule as far as booking vendors, reminding you of little details that you may forget, giving you resources for order wedding related things, but she also has your back. She makes sure your vision is always at the forefront of all of the planning, she will speak up for you when she senses that you need some backup. She was wonderful throughout the planning process! Day of, she was fantastic, I could never have done this without her, she kept everything on schedule, things literally could not have run more smoothly. She is just such a machine day of. I would without a doubt 100% absolutely insist that everyone in the area hire her. She has amazing connections and contacts, it is very evident that the vendors love working with her, almost all of the vendors would say, " oh you have Sandy, she is so on top of everything, you're good" She is a super star. Hire her, it will be the best money spent on your wedding.Sent on 05/29/2019
Baxter's Creative Events's reply:Thank you so much Sarah for the amazing review! I love it when we are able to successfully meet the needs of our couples. It was wonderful working with you for over a year and getting to know you better and helping to design the wedding of your dreams. I love what I do and that's what drives my enthusiasm and work ethic, but it's even better when I have couples that are as amazing, friendly, on top of things as you were. You were such a joy to work with! I hope you stay in touch and thank you so very much for the amazing review. xoxo

Beautiful Wedding Planning Experience
Where do I start? I found Sandra Baxter online while shopping for a Wedding Planner in the Hampton Roads area. I initially met with another Events Planning firm and thought for sure I’d go with them, but Sandy contacted me and we hit it off after an hour long conversation over the phone and that’s when I sealed the deal (a year before my wedding date). I didn’t consider myself to be a typical bride, so I wanted to work with someone who’d respect my ideas and not force their opinions and suggestions on me, and Sandy was extremely understanding and open to my desires and my cool, laid back nature. She is very detailed and tremendously organized. Communication between us was easy, between emails, text messages and phone calls, I was able to reach her whenever I needed something, and she was good at putting my mind at ease. She is very connected in the Hampton Roads community and well-known by all their wedding vendors, hence she was able to secure significant discounts for us for lighting and other wedding services. I was extremely stress free the entire year of wedding planning because Sandy practically took care of everything. On the day off, everything went off without a hitch. She ensured all vendors were where they should be, and everything ran ON TIME. My wedding day was a complete success and so very memorable and I am thankful to SB for her expertise in making this happen.Sent on 10/31/2019
