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.

Hiring Samantha was the worst decision we made while planning our wedding. Due to her constantly being sick and never having a backup, she was very unresponsive and impossible to get a hold of. We went through numerous "Senior Planners" within her company because her staff kept quitting. A month before our wedding 90% of our punch list was not completed and we were scrambling to pull everything together. A wedding planner is supposed to ensure a smooth planning process and we received the exactly opposite. Don't let her 'fool' with her sales pitch that she can work low-budget weddings. She has you sign a contract and then pushes you aside for more expensive clients. She claims she doesn’t accept vendor commissions - ha! It was recorded she took in over $20K in vendor commissions from ONE florist last year. Lies lies and more lies. She definitely put on a good act - I will say that. My husband and I had a gorgeous wedding but it was no thanks to Samantha!
12/22/11: The below posting from Samantha is completely false. The length to which she goes to justify her case only validates our initial review.

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......

“Spectacular”…”Amazing!”…”Flawless”. These are some of the comments we hear about Sam’s events. Her parties ALWAYS have that WOW factor. We are proud to be associated with one of the country’s top event companies; our top orchestras and bands always look forward to working with Sam and her team.

I recommend the services of Samantha Goldberg & Co to make your Wedding Day a one-of-a-kind event that will be remembered and cherished by you and all your guests for years to come. ~~ Angela Neik, www.calligraphybyangela.com 214 957 2155 Dallas Calligrapher
