It has taken me a few months to write this review because I literally could not put in to words how incredible, perfect and wonderful Jeanne Stark was as our wedding planner. When we first got engaged and were searching for our own wedding planner we would read reviews and not believe the ones that were over the top praise – how could someone be that good? (Maybe that was the jaded New Yorkers in us talking, but we were always skeptical.) Brides reading this review – believe me! Jeanne Stark and her team ARE THAT GOOD!
Jeanne expertly handled every single detail for our 300 person wedding weekend with patience, thoughtfulness and foresight. She came up with incredible ideas to make our destination wedding exactly what we wanted, and anticipated our needs, solved our problems and made sure everything ran smoothly. Jeanne was an absolute joy to work with and we loved every time we got to meet with her over the course of our planning. She was incredible over the entire weekend, made my husband, parents, in laws and everyone who met her feel calm and relaxed all weekend, and made sure that not a single thing went wrong. I enjoyed every second of our wedding weekend, and that is all thanks to the hard work that Jeanne did. She assembled an all star team of vendors for us to work with, negotiated our contracts and managed everyone both in advance and on the day of, and made our venue look perfect (even going so far as to bring her husband in to do some DIY construction on the site the week before!). She also helped manage our budget and keep track of of our expenses. It was a huge plus that she knows everyone in the Rhinbeck area and everyone trusts/loves working with her, so we had no problem getting exactly what we wanted for the weekend. I truthfully cannot say a bad thing about our experience with Jeanne – I only wish we could do it again. Do yourself a HUGE favor and hire Jeanne to plan your wedding – it will absolutely be the best decision you make!

Rev. Lawrence McCauley was a pleasure to deal with. We had a phone interview where he prepared a draft of our ceremony. My husband and I edited it a bit to our liking and he gladly incorporated our changes. Our entire experience with HV ceremonies went well and we highly recommend them!

Experts and Affordable!
Sage, Jeanne, & the whole HVC staff are EXPERTs when it comes to wedding coordinating. We hired Sage for day-of wedding coordinating at Basilica Hudson and she was always on her game, and had answers to even the craziest of questions i had. She was quick to respond to emails, and made time for my crazy late night calls, helping talk me off a ledge! :) Then during the wedding, she handled every issue with ease and without hesitation. If you are debating whether or not you need a day-of coordinator, the answer is yes. Peace of mind is worth it. Best use of money i spent on the whole wedding, seriously. They are truly good at what they do, and i will be recommending to all.
