We Would've Been Lost Without Her

Hiring Raquel was far and away the best wedding planning decision we made.

We chose her month-of package for our October wedding after attending a wedding she coordinated in June and she seamlessly incorporated herself into our process as we finalized everything with all of our vendors and was instrumental in the weekend itself going off without a hitch. She served as a sounding board and expert opinion throughout the end stages of the planning process, took on the tasks that I was dreading handling myself (timeline creation, to name one!), and asked thoughtful questions that hadn't even occurred to me.

If there was an issue, I felt confident going into the wedding day that Raquel would be able to resolve it, and she didn't disappoint! From alcohol snafus to the threat of rain, from picture-dirty shoes to an unraveling bowtie, she tackled it all without batting an eye so that we could enjoy our day. Our wedding wouldn't have been what it was without her and we'll always be grateful to her for helping make our dreams come true!

Best Wedding Planner

I worked with Raquel for a wedding on 9/30/23! I was the DJ for the wedding and Raquel was the event planner! From the first discussions I had with her I could see how professional, organized, and friendly she was! On the day of the wedding we worked together seamlessly to create an awesome experience for our couple! She exceeded my expectations and as a Wedding DJ, I’ve worked with many event planners and Raquel is top notch! I would recommend her to any couples looking for an event planner or any planning assistance for their wedding!

Above and Beyond Coordinator!

Raquel was absolutely amazing and gave me such peace of mind on the day of my wedding. She handled all of the cocktail hour setup while overseeing the reception set up. She was the point of contact the day of for all my vendors and made sure everything went smoothly. She was so communicative and had an incredible attention to detail on everything from the initial meetings we had, to the follow up meetings with all of my vendors, and the few days prior to my wedding. During the planning process she had so many unique and creative ideas to help make my visions come true. During my wedding day we had a small issue and immediately Raquel was on it! She was highly recommended to me by a friend, and looking back now I couldn't have imagined the day without her. Raquel is highly experienced, professional, and great to work with. I would highly recommend her for your wedding day planning!

I guess you can call me the logistics queen behind RS Event Co. I have been told I'm as effervescent as a bottle of Champagne. I hug big and I hold the people that are closest to me in this world VERY close. My passion lies in all things detail - after all, each event is made up of a million little ones!

While I offer planning services for all types of events, weddings are my absolute favorite. I love working with people. I love making them laugh. I love love and I love watching each event unfold. This is literally my dream job and I am so grateful that I get to work in this amazing industry. I cannot wait to get to know you and the special event you are allowing me to celebrate with you!
