Lindsey Sachs is a force - plain and simple. First some background: I live between NYC and DC and planned the vast majority of my wedding from afar and with a two-hour time difference. I'm a dude who was marrying a dude so rest assured COLLECTIVE/by Sachs is down with the gays.Sent on 07/12/2018
But perhaps most important, I’m a marketing/comms executive for a major global media brand. In my role, I plan millions of dollars of events every year — all over the world. So the idea of hiring a planner (a local planner) to work on my wedding seemed like a ridiculous notion. After all, what could he/she do that I couldn’t? Spoiler alert: everything.
Guys, my work schedule is nuts. Lindsey took my calls at wild hours. I spoke to her at midnight ET on several occasions. She received all my deliveries, project managed every detail on the ground, and took over my vendor relationships. She ran all over the city combining different rental pieces. And at times she played therapist.
I can say with absolute certainty that her personal taste in decor, style, vibe, tone etc does not match my own. But she took the time to learn mine and took to heart everything I said. I have a big, strong personality but along they way she politely pushed back when I was wrong. (And I'll admit, I was wrong a few times). But she embraced my likes/dislikes whole heartedly. The outcome was pure perfection.
Oh! And the ceremony. Good god, that would have been a hot mess express without her and Chris. Along with my best friend who officiated, they orchestrated that entire event. I pretty much just showed up and did as I was told. I wanted short and sweet. And I got 15 minutes of the best ceremony I could imagine.
Could I have done it all by myself? Probably. Would It have taken several more trips across the country? Definitely. Would I have been absolutely miserable and stressed out? Undoubtedly.

I found myself beyond happy the day of our wedding not only because it was the perfect day but also because everyone got to relax and enjoy it. That feeling made it all worth it. Having Lindsey really enhanced our wedding experience. Weddings are meant to be enjoyed, I'm sure I would not have enjoyed it as much as I did if it wasn't for all of Lindsey's hard work.
We worked with Lindsey for a year. She took off our shoulders so much work such as keeping track of all the contracts with the vendors, quoting with different vendors, managing the budget, scheduling meetings, keeping checklists. Basically, Lindsey became our one point of contact instead of driving ourselves crazy managing all the vendors and the schedule by ourselves. If the vendors had questions, they would also contact Lindsey which was a relief to us specially during the days closer to the event. She kept us on schedule with the milestones and provided great style recommendations as needed.
Lindsey is incredibly responsive and her attention to detail is like no other. She knew every detail about our wedding by heart just as if she was the bride. She always treated us with high priority even though she had a lot of other weddings she was working on.
She understands the struggles of any busy couple trying to make hundreds of decisions for their wedding day and she took a great sense of urgency to figure out all the details with us.
I knew she got our back the entire time and she made the planning experience fun for us.
The day of the wedding, she made sure everything went according to plan. Having her, took off our parent's shoulders the responsibility to take care of any details so they were free to enjoy the wedding with us.
Lindsey has the best sense of style and a lot of experience with event planning, I wouldn't trust anyone else to help us plan our wedding.
Our wedding day was heaven, every detail worked out as planned, our parents and family really got to relax and enjoy the moment with us. We all had complete peace of mind. So worthy it!

Working with Lindsey of COLLECTIVE/by Sachs in the months leading up to our wedding helped the excitement of getting married feel more real. I was blown away at how thoughtful, thorough and fun she made this process. She was prompt to respond to emails and clearly took time to give insightful feedback. She put 100% into working with my fiancé and me with a fun personal approach as well as all kinds of practical solutions. The Wedding Coordination Guide and the Wedding Day Schedule she made for us really brought the point home – we were going to get married and have an amazing, meaningful wedding to look forward to.Sent on 10/08/2018
We appreciate Lindsey's perspective of having gone through her own wedding and marriage with her husband in an intentional, joyful way. She channels her contagious enthusiasm and strength into her collaborative work to help others bring their wedding vision to life. I can see how Lindsey would be the perfect fit for anyone wishing to plan a unique marriage celebration, an elopement or a wedding in a location off the beaten path. Lindsey is adventuresome, considerate and truly listens to each person she works with.
Lindsey became someone we could turn to with any question or concern. Not only could she support us with logistical details, but also the emotions of such a momentous life event. She helped be a cheerleader, a coach and a team player for putting together our wedding celebration. Lindsey is one of the most thoughtful people we have ever met. Articulate, mature, well organized and so fun to work with - you won’t get anything superficial from Lindsey. She’ll encourage you to be the most authentic version of yourselves on your wedding day. Working with Lindsey gave us the confidence and faith to create a heartfelt and personal celebration. We are so glad we did! Since our wedding last month, many friends and family have told us that our ceremony was the most beautiful they’ve ever attended. Thank you, Lindsey!

Thank god for Lindsey Sachs!!! We recently worked together on a wedding for a wonderful couple, but as with most Colorado weddings many guests were coming in from out of town and the logistics were nothing short of complex. Add to that a local festival going on the same weekend, which always can throw a wrench in even the best laid plans. Lindsey handled everything with grace and precision, leaving no stone unturned. I didn't know a person could be in so many places at once! :) But she really seemed to go out of her way to make sure everything ran as smoothly as possible, which seemed to relieve great strain from the couple. This meant a lot to me personally, as the couple are friends of mine as were many of their guests. I'm so glad they hired Lindsey to manage their wedding weekend from them, from the rehearsal dinner to the wedding day and clean up. She really seemed to go above and beyond to truly make their time with family and friends as stress-free and fun as possible. I'd highly recommend Lindsey to anyone looking for a thorough and caring wedding planner. She's the best!!!
Lindsey is an authentic wedding designer and planner! After speaking with her and hearing the story of how COLLECTIVE was started, it was evident that she is passionate about her work and strives to make it the best for her clients. You won't regret working with Lindsey!
I am currently working with Lindsey (COLLECTIVE/by Sachs) and her clients to design their wedding invitations, and she has been one of the most responsive vendors I have ever worked with! Emails are answered immediately, she is on top of every detail, friendly & professional...the list goes on! I look forward to working together again and again!
