Debbie is incredible!
We originally hired Debbie to plan a wedding in 2018. When I called off that wedding, Debbie was exceptionally responsive and got refunds from all vendors.
In November 2019 I got engaged and we immediately contacted Debbie for a wedding on August 22, 2020. Through the entire COVID process, she could not have been more helpful. From confirming with vendors, to changing venues, to creating timelines Debbie does it all.
At the end of July, the governor announced no receptions after 8/8, which put our 8/22 wedding in jeopardy. I immediately called Debbie and she said we can move our wedding up 3 weeks (leaving us 1 week to pull everything together). She immediately confirmed our new date with all the vendors and even cleared her schedule to meet with us the next day after the announcement. I cried lots of tears, and without Debbie our dream wedding would not have been possible. Our guests and even vendors said it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to.
Debbie is the most attentive, supportive, and loving wedding planner a bride could ask for. If you need a wedding planner that will put your needs first and find vendors that specifically match your style, Debbie hands down who you want on your team. We are forever grateful for everything Debbie did for us.Sent on 08/20/2020

Debbie's experience as a wedding coordinator makes planning your wedding seamless so you can enjoy the process!
Debbie's knowledge of local vendors and her relationship with them makes choosing your wedding team easy. She is responsive to your questions and concerns and keeps you on schedule so there are no fire drills to get your dream wedding accomplished...unless you are a bride during a pandemic. Debbie walked beside my daughter every step of the way navigating all of the decisions and changes that needed to be made. When we decided to move the wedding to our home she was able to get our deposit back from the original venue. When the governor announced that wedding receptions were going to be band the weekend of our daughter's wedding and wedding sizes reduced to 30 people Debbie said, "we'll just move the wedding up so you can still have 100 guests and a reception" - which we did. We had a week to put a full rehearsal dinner, wedding and reception together at our house. Debbie was able to secure ALL of the vendors and they turned themselves inside out and upside down to create the wedding of my daughter's dreams! It was BEAUTIFUL - all thanks to Debbie thinking outside of the box, staying calm and keeping us as calm as possible. Without her professionalism and caring this would have never happened! By the time it was all said and done, Debbie, my daughter, vendors and I had tweaked and planned 4 different weddings all for the price of one!
When thinking about choosing a wedding planner - think about the team she will put together, the support she will give you and how flexible and creative she can be when problems arise. I can't think of anyone else who meets these standards. Debbie was able to make my daughter's dream wedding come true during a pandemic - imagine what she can do for a bride under normal circumstances!Sent on 08/25/2020

Wonderful experience & so helpful!!
We absolutely loved working with Debbie for our wedding. Debbie was our Day of Coordinator but her services extended much further than just our wedding day! We were in communication for about 4 months before the wedding and she was always available to help us with any questions. Her responses were always very timely and professional. Debbie also provided really helpful decor lists and a comprehensive timeline so we could tell if we were on track with our planning. She always asked us a lot of questions that we wouldn't have even thought of - no small detail was overlooked.Sent on 12/23/2019
Overall, we really loved working with Debbie and would highly recommend her services.
Ruby Red Shoes Weddings & Events's reply:Thank you Tina for your VERY kind words about my wedding services! I truly appreciate it. Tina, it was a real honor to work with you and Madison! As a bride to be you already had in mind how you wanted your wedding day to look and feel. So working with you and watching your dream wedding unfold, was truly magical!!
I worked with Debbie on a wedding earlier this summer and she was completely on top of everything - both before and during the wedding. She was quick to answer any questions I had prior to the day-of, and she was very helpful on the wedding day as well. I definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a planner/coordinator to help out with their special day!
