I cannot say enough about Samantha Olson and her business, Simply The Finest - Weddings & Events. My wife is a first grade teacher who also does private tutoring after hours and I'm a military member who is gone six months per year. Our schedules are hectic and there was no way we were going to be able to plan/execute a nice wedding by ourselves. Knowing this, we hired Samantha to handle our wedding. I am not kidding you when I say that she did everything. She even handled all the contact/coordination of groomsmen and bridesmaids for tux fitting, dress sizing...everything. Other than making our guest list, I don't think I had to do a single thing. The best thing is, my wife was never stressed out during the planning because Samantha handles everything and she seems to anticipate anything that could possibly go wrong. We never dealt with a single issue, except picking our venue, food, and the colors the groomsmen/bridesmaids wore. She took care of literally everything else. Planning a wedding is incredibly detailed and time consuming. Don't try to do it yourself unless you want to go insane. Call Samantha and have her do it. Trust me.Sent on 04/25/2016

Hiring Samantha to plan my wedding was hands down the best money we spent on the wedding by far. To be perfectly honest, I know that my wedding would not have been as beautiful and seamless without her. I thought I was lucky at first, but as my wedding got closer and my life became more hectic, I found that I needed her more than ever. She completely took the wedding into her hands when she knew I was overwhelmed with other life changes.Sent on 08/03/2015
The connections she has with vendors in the area is amazing and the best part is she did all of the negotiations and reviewed my contracts for me! She was able to save me money on multiple occasions and always on the look out to get me the best deal possible.
The vision that I had for my wedding day was carried out in a manner I've only seen in magazines and online. All of my guests thought it was one of the most beautiful and unique weddings they had attended. I truly can say it was a breathtaking sight to see everything I had planned and envisioned for over a year take shape in one unforgettable day. The best part, is that Samantha took on the heaviest burden and I just was able to step back and enjoy the process for what it was.... a celebration of life and love between two people. I don't think that everyone gets that opportunity. Thank you, Samantha for putting up with the endless texts, emails, questions, planning, prepping, and executing my perfect day!

Samantha was wonderful! She customized a contract for us to fit our needs. She collaborated with us a compromised to make our day our perfect day! She helped us make our vision become a reality! I'm not very good at putting mg vision into words and finishing all the details. Samantha took my vague descriptions and helped me find all the little details to complete the event. She worked well with my family and my now husband who was not always so interested in the planning process :-)Sent on 11/22/2014
Simply The Finest, Weddings & Events by Samantha Olson's reply:Thank you Elly, for taking the time to write this review, especially after sending me the lovely card with such kind words of appreciation. I wish you all the best to you and Ian! Keep in touch.
Samantha is an incredible wedding planner to work with! She has planned several weddings that have been at our venue and every time working with her has been a great experience. She is very well organized and experienced. She always has new and creative ideas to bring to our venue, that no other wedding parties have. We enjoy working with Samantha and look forward to future weddings planned by her!
Samantha and the staff of Simply the Finest are reliable, professional and detail oriented. I have known Samantha for a few years now. She was a student of mine through The Wedding Planning Institute, a division of Lovegevity where she received her Wedding Planning Certificate. Any couple would be lucky to have her plan their special day. She will certainly go above and beyond for her clients. There is no better person to have by your side ensuring all the last minute details are taken care of. I highly recommend her to any couple who wants peace of mind on their wedding day.
