About R.L. Sisson Events

R.L. Sisson Events is a wedding planning business based in Bar Harbor, Maine, that also serves the Portland, Bangor, and Presque Isle areas. Rachel, owner and planner, grew up surrounded by planning and entertaining. This naturally led her to a hospitality career, where she first started gaining her experience. Her experience drove her into launching her very own wedding planning business, which has been Rachel's passion ever since. Now, she works closely with each couple to help them plan and carry out the wedding of their dreams.

    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!

    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.
    Hope to see you and Sofia next time you're on the island!
    xoxo,
    Rachel

    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.

    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!
