I have to say, I am very impressed with the service and professionalism I received from Samantha and her team for my wedding in September. I will be recommending them to my friends that are getting married in 2012. Thanks so much again for the best day I could have imagined.Sent on 12/23/2011

Both Samantha Goldberg and her team are AMAZING!! I first saw Sam on "Whose Wedding is it Anyway." Her spunky, fun, and perfectionist attitude made me and instant fan! Sam and her team made our wedding a dream come true with attention to every detail that I could not have imagined. Sam was patient with me and took the time to understand me and understand what I loved and what I did not like. This was very important to me because during the month before our wedding, I knew I could trust Sam with making decisions regarding colors, flowers, patterns, linens, etc. From her warmth and energy during our first meeting, to her structured yet flexible attitude the week of our wedding, Sam was by our side every step of the wedding planning process. She designed our menus, place cards, basically everything. I am a type-A personality but I knew I could trust Sam with our wedding. Letting go allowed Sam's creativity and magic to shine and everyone was beyond impressed at our wedding reception. When I think of our wedding, I still get emotional because it was truly a dream. Because Sam took control of our wedding, my husband and I were able to enjoy our wedding day and truly take in everything that was happening around us. We can't thank Sam enough for making this possible. Most brides look back on their wedding and think about things they would have done differently. There is NOTHING we would do differently thanks to Samantha Goldberg :) There is a false assumption that wedding planners are expensive. Sam is not. She works within EVERY budget to make your wedding day amazing :) Sam and her team are all amazing people and our wedding would not be the same if it was not for them. We cannot thank them enough. I would recommend Sam and her team to everyone :)Sent on 12/09/2011
I have worked with Samantha many times and she is very professional, cares for her clients and vendors she works with. Her personality is very friendly. She is so much fun to be around!! Highly recommend Samantha and her company!!
Samantha is a wonderful vendor to work with. Her energy, confidence, and talent shines through her work. I used her services personally, and I couldn't be happier that I found, and chose to work with her. She is patient, kind, and will do whatever it takes to leave the bride as stress free as possible. She is amazing to work with, and I value her as my preferred vendor, and as a dear friend. I recommend her to anyone, you won't be disappointed.
We have worked with Samantha and her staff many time through the years and every time she never stop in amazing us with the talent and the creativity and dedication she put in every event no matter if it is a $10,000 or 100,000 wedding, great company to have as a wedding planner......
