Exceptional customer service and value!
My overall experience with Samantha has been wonderful. She has gone above and beyond throughout the entire planning process and I couldn’t be more thankful for her insight and support. She has extensive knowledge in event planning and the wedding industry overall, which has proved essential especially during a pandemic. She has the organizational tools/resources to make sure nothing gets missed and overall has a passion for customer service. Above all, Sam is flexible and so easy to work with – she will cater to your needs and ensure your day runs smoothly. 10/10 recommend Dawn ‘til Dusk!Sent on 03/03/2021

Sam is a LIFESAVER!! 10/10 service!
Sam. Was. Awesome!!! So personable yet so professional! She went with my husband and me to pick out the venue and thought of so many questions that never occurred to me! Thank god she was there (and thanks for her patience). She also worked day of our wedding, hand in hand with the venue staff, to make sure everything went smoothly from start to finish. All I know is when we started working with Sam, my stress levels went WAY down. Thank you thank you thank you!Sent on 03/03/2021

Hi there! My name is Sam and I graduated with my Event Management degree from Iowa State University in 2015 and have a passion for all things events and weddings! I have over 5 years of experience planning events including 3 years of venue management. My strengths are organization, detail, and the ability to think on my feet. Once I started planning events, I knew this was my dream.
