Excellence

Our wedding event was special and easy to navigate because of Rachel (RSVP Events). We work many hours and did not have the time to devote to planning the wedding. Rachel took the pressure from us She took our ideas and dreams and made the wedding happen. Our day was special and perfect and we would not have changed a thing.

Rachel is a true professional, an easy communicator, and a pleasure to work with. She has a list of vendors that she uses and I would use them all again as they all were perfect on the day. I would highly recommend her as she made our dreams come true. We would only use RSVP Events for future celebrations.

Best Event Planner

Rachel is a phenomenal event planner. She planned a beautiful wedding for us in Coronado. She was there for us every step of the way. She had a detailed itinerary list and kept us track so we wouldn鈥檛 be so overwhelmed. She helped with budgeting, decor ideas, to finding the best vendors for our celebration. She was available a day and night via email and phone calls. We wouldn鈥檛 have been able to have our dream wedding without her. She is a true gem!
