When I originally booked Sarah I was 11 months out of getting married. I had purchased her partial package and was assured that everything would go perfect for my wedding day. We met a total of maybe 8 times in person. Fast forward 3 weeks before the actual wedding. She had not looked at our contract for TEN MONTHS. When she looked at the contract three weeks before the wedding, keep in mind we met the week before she told me this, she had realized that she had DOUBLE BOOKED weddings. I had spent almost 10 months going over what I had wanted my special day to be with her and come to find out it all meant nothing. So she proceeded to tell me someone else would be there for my wedding and it all would run smoothly and no one out of my family would be forced to help make my day perfect as to that is why we hired her for. Well wedding day comes around, this is the good part, her stand in gets to the venue at 12:45 and starts "setting up" which means having my father call me and my mother as we were getting ready for the ceremony that started at 5:30, asking us where stuff goes. It was then my mother was fuming decided to call Sarah which of course she didn't answer because she was too busy with her double booked wedding. Of course there was nothing she could do since she was so far away. Basically my aunt and cousin went down there and set up EVERYTHING and did what we paid Sarah to do in the first place. If it wasn't for them my dream wedding would not have been as perfect as it was. After the wedding my mother of course reached out to her to talk things over and she has yet to respond. Basically ladies if you are looking to book a wedding planner just make sure that you have found the right one who won't screw you over three weeks before your wedding and will keep promises.

Sarah is absolutely incredible to work with! She has now coordinated not only my wedding this summer, but my two older sisters' in the past few years as well and we couldn't be more impressed! Sarah is incredibly knowledgable about everything wedding and her southern taste is impeccable! She helped our family so so much through these three weddings, helping everything go smoothly so we didn't have to worry about a thing. She is easy to work with and will go above and beyond to help give you your dream wedding day! Sarah is not only an amazing event planner, but now more like family! I would recommend her to anyone!

DO NOT USE HER SERVICES! We booked her as the planner for my daughters wedding, on May 20th. When we first met her, Sarah, told my daughter that we wouldn't have to be concerned with anything that's why we were hiring her so that we could enjoy this day stress-free. Now, I do not know how she did not write that date on the contract and why she didn't check the contract before April 28, 2017. She had an entire year to review that contract for accuracy. Instead, she waited until four weeks before our daughter's wedding to discover she had doubled booked herself. Trying to rectify her mistake she asked another "planner" to take her place. At no time did I see the stand-in take any written notes but I did hear Sarah discuss with my daughter and her about the decor and to go over in detail where everything was to be set up and placed. On the day of the rehearsal, we waited 25 minutes for her stand in to show up. My family lined the wedding party up and executed this twice before the stand in showed up late. Her excuse was babysitting issues however she did not call to let anyone know. On the 20th, the site was open for her to begin the setup process at 9 am, she came at 11. She brought no one to assist her. She began to literally spin around in circles asking and anyone that would answer where she should place items That is when I called Sarah. I do not know what she said in her conversation with her but I can tell you, whatever was said was not helpful. She was completely unprepared to do her job, and that is a reflection of Sarah. It was only because of my family that my daughter's dream wedding became a reality. She should be ashamed of herself for conducting her business like this. Her "sorry" does not excuse her for a mistake that she made. It does not excuse the inept abilities of her stand-in. I emailed Sarah to let her know how upset I was with everything she hasn't responded.
