The Best Thing You Could Do
Where could I even begin with Samara and Just as Planned? First of all, if you are on the fence or toying with the idea needing planner, you do and you need Samara. Even stellar venues, attentive and involved on-site day of coordinators, dedicated friends, and knowledgeable family cant compare. No matter how hard and long you prepare to even the smallest detail, having Samara will not only give you the priceless piece of mind but she is also insurance for one of the biggest and best days of your life. You spend so much of your time, energy, and money for this one day, why wouldn’t you want to solidify that everything goes according to your vision and plan? That’s what she does. While she can’t control the weather or stop your crazy uncle from falling on the dance floor, she can just about do everything under the sun. We went with Samara for one of her less involved packages and one of the things I just kept saying was, “I wish I found you sooner, I wish I involved you sooner” and it’s so true because I would have gone the extra miles right then and there if I found her at the beginning. I originally took a lot of the planning on myself because I had a specific plan I thought I could execute on my own because I didn’t trust anyone and I had worked a lot of events with my mom. Especially since I had an out of state wedding, I truly wish I found her at the beginning of it all. I’m telling you from the first conversation with Samara it was effortless. She goes the extra mile just because she values this day just as much as you do. She cares about every detail. She thinks about things you would have never even considered. She reviews every contract. She talks to people you don’t want to. One of the most important things you don’t consider in this process is decision fatigue—especially towards the end. She takes that pain away, and she keeps your mission and vision at the forefront all the way through. When every other vendor shows up and does their thing and gets to showcase it, she’s the one making sure all of them are doing the job you paid them for in the way you need it done. She fills in the cracks and is somehow everywhere the whole time. She is the one silently orchestrating the chaos she doesn’t let you see. She’s the one fluffing your dress right before you walk down the aisle and making sure your husband to be is wearing his boutonnière for the first look. I could go on forever and exhaust the amount of characters I’m allowed on a review. Simply put, she’s one of the best decisions you could make. I implore you to take the leap and trust, she is worth it because you both are worth it and deserve the best day you could possibly have.
