They take care of everything so you can enjoy your day
I had the best experience working with First Coast Weddings last July. Every time I had a concern or question, their team had already thought through the scenario and had a ready solution. From the dress rehearsal to the day itself I never had to worry about people knowing where to be or when to move. Knowing that I had the First Coast Weddings team running everything behind the scenes and coordinating with my Church and venue staff gave me the freedom to focus on my wedding and not worry about my guests. I could not recommend them more highly!Sent on 05/01/2020

Our wedding was August 22, 2020 and the day we decided to have Laura Salmon with First Coast Wedding and Events assist us as our wedding planner was the best decision we ever could have made. Our wedding date was originally scheduled for May, but due to the global pandemic it had to be rescheduled to August. Laura was right there for us through it all, from contacting our vendors to ensure all dates were rescheduled with no conflicts. She was so genuine and always took the time to reach out to us to make sure we were emotionally doing OK. Her organization with us really worked well with our personalities and we never had to follow up on anything. She always had it all covered. She ensured we had check in meetings to always ensure we were on track with things we needed to have done prior to the wedding date. Laura left no stone unturned and I am so grateful to have had her throughout this process and on our wedding day. She worked very well with our venue coordinator with a wedding day timeline which made everything flow seamlessly. Planning a wedding is beyond stressful but I can't even imagine how we could have ever done it all without Laura, she is definitely one of the best!Sent on 11/05/2020

A Must for Planning your First Coast Wedding
Like many brides-to-be, our daughter had to postpone her Spring 2020 wedding due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Laura Salmon and the team at First Coast Weddings made this stressful time and process so much easier: In addition to providing us with the information needed to make the decision to reschedule the wedding, Laura notified all of the vendors of the new date and facilitated the signing of any contract addenda that were needed.Sent on 10/21/2020
Throughout the next four months, Laura stayed in touch with us, reassuring us that the wedding we had envisioned was still a possibility and offering her assistance with everything from venue signage to favors. On the day of the wedding itself, she and her assistant were invaluable: From the moment they arrived three hours before the ceremony until well after the reception had concluded, they made sure everything was set up and that all vendors and members of the bridal party arrived on time and knew where to go. They also made sure all gifts and personal family items were packed up and delivered to us during their final sweep of the venue late that evening.
Laura's calm demeanor and attention to every detail allowed us to relax, breathe and enjoy the day for which we had waited so long. Securing Laura's services was the best investment we made in planning our daughter's wedding and we highly recommend her services.

Very professional company, great to work with. Highly recommend!
OMG, Heather is one of the happiest people I know. I really can not remember a time I have seen or worked with her that she does not have a smile on her face.... and she's got amazing skills at organization and creating a jaw dropping unique setting in a way that simply has become second nature to her. A great person to work with for sure :)
