    Words can not express how amazing it was to work with Rita! Let me start by saying she knows her material on every topic along the way of the planning. She is the perfect amount of soft spoken and assertive when needed to make sure you have the best experience! Our wedding planning went as smooth as it possibly could because of her help. She earned the title of "fairy god mother" very quickly on how helpful she was. I to be honest was not as stressed as I should have been with the planning because of how helpful she was all along the way of planning and next to us on our wedding day. We had a couple of issues go wrong on the day of the wedding, but luckily because she was so organized and on alert they were fixed without me even knowing until the day after when family told us how amazing she was at saving the day. We met with 3 other wedding planners to make sure we were going to be working with the best fit for us and spending our money right. I can honestly say that her services were worth every penny!!! We are going to miss working with her as she became like family. I highly recommend Rita Swanson.

    Rita was a life saver for my daughter's wedding ( only 7 weeks after my son married). There is absolutely no chance we could have pulled off the beautiful event that it was. Rita has outstanding contacts and relationships with vendors. She provides a detail timeline and budget and sticks to it throughout the process. She is priceless! I am quite sure that she paid for herself in the mistakes we avoided. And my daughter had the wedding of her dreams. Every detail went as planned. As the mother of the bride I did not have to worry about anything the day of the wedding but to enjoy watching my daughter enjoy her special day.! I will be forever indebted to Rita for her calm and expert guidance. We highly recommend that you trust Rita to create your special day. Danna and Kelsey Atherton
