Incredible communication, impeccable organization

Hire Sam. Your wedding (and your life) will be better because of her. We DIY-ed most of our wedding, but we really needed someone to coordinate the day-of, and I’m sooooo glad we entrusted Sam with that task. She started a few months out with a walk-through, which was our first time meeting her in person. I still can’t get over that within a few hours of meeting her, she had a document created with a total timeline of our wedding day, complete with tiny little details we had just casually mentioned during our meeting. Throughout the next few months we had numerous check-ins, where she basically became our brain (ours own brains were becoming increasingly useless as the day approached), listening to everything we needed and wanted, and offering suggestions in areas we hadn’t thought about. She sat in on a meeting with our DJ and helped to ensure everyone was on the same page. Even little things like responding to an email I would send with a minor thought with “received” is so appreciated at a time when you’ve got to communicate with so many vendors about so many different things.

On the actual wedding day, Sam took command of all the details and made sure everyone was where they needed to be at the correct time. She even folded my pocket square for me! We had no phones and no watches on for the whole wedding, and it was so freeing. We could just sit back and enjoy our special day. Her assistant Alex was wonderful as well, and was very helpful for our wandering wedding parties when it came to ceremony time. Everything was executed flawlessly and that’s in no small part because of Sam. Hire her. You will thank me later.

The best!

I could write paragraphs and paragraphs about how awesome Sam is. I’ll try to recap our day and experience rather quickly here: Minutes before our ceremony began, the weather changed and it started to downpour. That downpour quickly turned into a flood, rendering our entire venue unusable and forcing us to evacuate. As you can imagine, as the bride, I was completely overwhelmed, in shock and just about ready to cancel the wedding and tell our guests to head home. Sam and her assistant, Shannon, immediately went into crisis management mode. Sam was running through the rain to communicate with both myself and the vendors/guests, to keep everyone abreast with what was going on. She helped my mom find suitable alternatives for both the ceremony and reception, quickly booking a church and hotel conference room last minute. She proceeded to travel back and forth between the original venue and our new reception multiple times, helping vendors grab all their supplies to relocate, and picking up various things we left at the venue in the rush to get to the church for the new ceremony. Her assistant, Shannon, helped facilitate the new ceremony and make sure our wedding party/vendors knew what was going on and how they should be entering since we swapped locations. I can’t imagine what our day would have looked like without these two.
Our photographer was injured and wasn’t able to photograph our ceremony, so her and Shannon took photos so that we could at least have something to look back on. Talk about going above and beyond…

If you’re on the fence and considering either a full service planner or day of coordinator, please choose Sam. To call her amazing would simply be an understatement. She was a true professional and rocked it throughout some of the worst scenarios that a couple could possibly face on their wedding day.

Best Wedding Planner

Sam was absolutely incredible and made our wedding even more special than we could have ever imagined. Getting married out of our home state had my wife and I very nervous with all of the moving pieces and vendors to keep track of and in line. Sam assured us it would be no issue and she would be there with us every step of the way and boy did she deliver!!! Sam was extremely responsive and available and constantly went above and beyond to make sure we were ready for our big day. We had issues with our venue and certain vendors through out the process but no matter the situation, Sam stepped up and took care of everything. No matter what the issue, Sam was there to help. Without her help, we would have been lost throughout this process. Thank you so much for being there for us and getting us over the finish line. I would 100% recommend Sam to anyone in need of a wedding planner, she will not let you down!!!!
