Hiring Sarah was the smartest wedding related decision I could have made! We worked together thoughout the entire year leading up to the big day. Sarah lets you be as involved or as hands-off as you like in all the decisions. She understood my vision for the event and I trusted her to make choices based on our style that I knew we would love.
Although hiring a planner can be expensive, I think you end up saving money in the long run. Based on your budget Sarah will only show you vendors that you can afford. This makes the decision process much less stressful (and way more fun) because you can focus on picking what you want vs. worrying: how much is this going to cost?, is this vendor showing me options that are out of my price range?, are these fees normal? etc. Such a stress relief.
When it came to the rehearsal and day of, I was able to focus on ME! Not on transportation, guests, vendor deliveries, setting up decorations, hair/makeup appointments, timelines, etc. Sarah took care of all of that so I could truly enjoy my wedding day. I heard many compliments from guests saying how well the event was run and how everything went off seamlessly. They were giving me the credit, but in reality it was all Sarah!

Sarah is definitely THE BEST! There's a reason why she continues to receive awards. You know you have the best planner when other vendors get excited after they learn that Lasting Impressions Weddings, (Sarah Trotter) is your planner. She's amazingly detailed and full of energy.
My only regret, is not getting the TOTAL package.... Because she is that great to work with!

Other than my groom, hiring Sarah was the best wedding-related decision that I made. I didn't immediately start working with Lasting Impressions during the planning process. It wasn't until seven or so months before my wedding that I reached out to Sarah. And thank goodness I did. The planning process went SO much smoother with her involved - it was like night and day. Sarah was so responsive, helpful and friendly. I started to enjoy planning and always looked forward to our conversations. Nicole handled our day of and she was also stellar. She kept the day running smoothly and made sure I wasn't bothered with any last minute drama. I HIGHLY recommend hiring Lasting Impressions!
We love working with Sarah Trotter of Lasting Impressions!
Lasting Impressions sets the bar high for an amazing event. Sarah is a delight to work with and delivers comprehensive customer service better than the rest! I love to refer brides to Lasting Impressions.
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.
