Choosing Sophie as our wedding planner was one of the best decisions we made.

Choosing Sophie as our wedding planner was one of the best decisions we made. Her kind, detail-oriented, and highly organized approach ensured that every aspect of our special day was executed flawlessly. Sophie's ability to remain calm and find solutions when our caterer canceled truly saved the day. Her excellent communication skills, strong vendor network, and meticulous attention to detail made the entire planning process smooth and stress-free. Sophie's expertise, professionalism, and genuine care for her clients makes her an exceptional wedding planner.

Stop searching, you鈥檝e found the worlds best wedding planner

Aside from finding my soulmate, finding Sophie was a close second on the list of wedding essentials! From start to finish, she was on it - organized, professional, and responsive. While working with Sophie, it was evident that she loves what she does, and that she has over a decade of planning experience.
We selected the partial planning package about a year out from our date, meeting with Sophie several times virtually and in person for site walk throughs at the venue. Every step of the way, Sophie was in our corner - providing expert advice, tips, and wisdom to ease our minds. Even when a stressful situation arose (the venue double booked our rehearsal dinner with another wedding) she jumped into action - Super Sophie mode! She coordinated with our venue point of contact and food vender to find a last minute alternative location, AND decorated it, which turned out to be the best plan b there ever was.
Sophie went above and beyond, making us feel like her only client (which was not the case!) We loved her attention to detail, her honesty when setting expectations, and her reassuring and calm presence. We鈥檒l continue to sing high praises about Sophie to anyone who will listen - she鈥檚 the best!

Thorough, kind, and 100 percent professional

Sophie was an incredible source of support and guidance in planning our October 2022 wedding. I loved her attention to detail and having the opportunity to talk through ideas with her - whether it was choosing wedding favors and where to put signage, or how to make sure all our guests felt welcome. Her day-of support and management of our vendors was absolutely invaluable. A close friend had to cancel on coming to the wedding day-of due to a COVID exposure and I was very sad about it, but talking to Sophie about it helped me reframe the event and feel 100 percent better. That kind of personal rapport is rare and very special. Sophie is a treasure!
