Best Wedding Planner EVER
Our wedding would not have been the same without Rachel Sisson and her team. We had family and friends traveling from all over the world and wanted to spend time with them vs trying to plan and organize. Rachel made it all come together so well, helping us simplify the decision making process so we could spend time with our family and friends!Sent on 10/28/2019
R.L. Sisson Events's reply:Thank you, Rushna and Jeff! It was a pleasure to work with you both. Such a special day, I was so lucky to be a part of it.

Detail oriented yet relaxed
Rachel was incredibly helpful when it came to the small details -- she helped us devise a timeline for our day, down to 15 minute increments, which I wouldn't have thought to do without her. She had truly thought of everything --like beautiful vases on the tables that really contributed to the mood of our wedding. Finally, Rachel was incredibly relaxed, which was just what needed in a joyful, but stressful, time of planning! Would definitely recommend.Sent on 10/29/2019

Friendly, Sincere, Resourceful, and Invaluable Wedding Planning
Rachel was a sincere and incredible help during our hunt for a venue in Hancock County! Although we did not end up getting married in Maine (a choice only based on travel restrictions of our guests), we were able to make a fully informed decision based on the help that Rachel gave us regarding venue, catering, and rental information. Especially considering that we do not live in the area year-round, having someone there to explore possibilities was invaluable. She went above-and-beyond in providing us many options during pre-planning, even though it was not a guarantee that we would choose Maine as our wedding location. If we ever do have an event in Maine (because it would be an amazing place for a celebration), Rachel will be our first choice! Thank you so much for everything, Rachel!Sent on 09/22/2019
