    An unforgettable, amazing experience with Lasting Impressions!

    Sarah Trotter is the perfect combination of efficiency, kindness and logistical excellence. She tackled my big fat Indian wedding with so much grace. She was so thoughtful about helping us highlight the important culture elements (for example, figuring out a venue that would help us do a Baraat, negotiating with food vendors and making sure fire could be lit inside for the ceremony) while also making sure the overall aesthetic was unique and ours! I cannot overemphasize how much she made me the bride feel at ease throughout the day with all the moving parts. She worked seamlessly with all the vendors (because she is truly the best in the business). She made sure we enjoyed and saw all the hard work we put into the wedding as well! We love Sarah so much and hope future couples (especially couples who are doing a different type of wedding!) will consider Lasting Impressions for their special day!

    Rethlake/Kane wedding

    Sarah and the team at Lasting Impressions are incredible. As the most important vendor decision you’ll make, hiring Lasting Impressions was a no brainer. Sarah and her team made our wedding weekend flawless and stress free. From the moment Morgan and I met with Sarah, she immediately understood the vision I wanted to create for Morgan and Seans special day. Sarah’s organization, attention to details, knowledge of local vendors, and fun personality made the planning process seamless and fun. This wedding was also postponed for an entire year due to the pandemic but Sarah made it all work and never missed a beat. I can not say enough about lasting Impressions and Sarah Trotter. I would recommend wholeheartedly to any and all brides.

    The greatest

    Sarah was a dream to work with. I had no idea where to start or how to go about the wedding planning process, but she helped us with every step of the way and kept us on track. Having Lasting Impressions there running the day of the wedding was absolutely AMAZING. Having Sarah and her team there by my side on my wedding day made for a completely stress-free day. She took care of EVERYTHING for us and made sure that my mom and I had nothing to worry about so that we were free to just soak it all in and enjoy.

Sarah is a great planner to work with. Most planners don't understand or take the time to know each vendors roles they have to make an event special for the couple. I met Sarah before the event for a walk through with the couple and we stayed in communication leading up to the event. It really felt like we were a team serving one purpose, the couple. She's a great listener and has a wonderful creative sense to take the couple's ideas in what they envision for their reception from the colors to the decorations and bring them to life. Sarah is not only a great vendor to work with, she is a "fun" vendor to work with and brings a lot energy, personality, compassion and professionalism to her work to make it a great experience for her couples. I look forward to working with Sarah again.
