September 17th Celebration

Sarah was terrific to work with throughout our whole experience. She was responsive, encouraging, created a sense of calm and we knew we could count on her to do anything for us. She also gave advice on how to best spend our money and all of the people she recommended to us for various needs were fabulous as well. We are thrilled with our event and highly recommend Lasting Impressions. I will miss working with her…if there is another opportunity for us to need her help we will call her! Thank you Sarah!

Hiring Sarah at Lasting Impressions was the best decision I made!

Hiring Sarah Trotter (Lasting Impressions) was the best decision I made! We hired Sarah to be our day of coordinator, however she was so much more than that. She guided me on vendors, timeframes and the small details we often forget. Thanks to Sarah, I was able to sit back and enjoy every aspect of the wedding weekend knowing she was taking care of every detail day of (big and small). The venue, photographers, florist and bridal party all loved working with her!

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.
