They handled everything!
Groom review: I wasn't involved when selecting So Smitten, and honestly wasn't sure what to expect throughout the process. In meeting with Marni to go over the details of the day, I was blown away by how organized she was. She had the wedding day planned to the minute and knew all the right questions to ask when speaking with the person managing the venue. On our wedding day, Marni and her team of coordinators made sure everything was perfect! We didn't have to worry about anything. They were so communicative to the wedding party that none of our friends and family had any excuse not to know where they should be and when. There were only a few minor hiccups and So Smitten handled them flawlessly. For instance, our venue made sure we picked how our napkins should be folded. We wouldn't have cared but after they made us choose, we designed an insert specific to the napkins describing the meal and with the names of the wedding party, etc. Unfortunately, all the napkins were wrong when we first looked at the room. We wouldn't have cared but they made a big deal of having us select a style. We mentioned it to Marni and she took care of the whole situation. They started to say that this is what we choose and Marni knew exactly where in the contract it listed the napkin fold and showed it to them. Marni and the team's attention to detail was fantastic. They were making sure my bride and I were happy the whole day and had to worry about as little as possible. I can't recommend them enough!!!Sent on 05/11/2019

Do your self a favor and book right away!!
We are so thankful for Marni and Sabrina!! Our wedding day, pre wedding, planning and just a helpful group when we had questions. We kept saying “we just don’t know what we don’t know” and both Marni and Sabrina are beyond helpful, quick to respond and super knowledgeable. We are so thankful we had Sabrina at our wedding and know we wouldn’t of been able to pull off our dream wedding with out her.Sent on 10/03/2019

The Best! Seriously!
So Smitten is seriously amazing! I worked with Marni and Sabrina. They were both wonderful and so helpful throughout the wedding planning process and in the months leading up to the wedding. They are professional, friendly, and organized. They are simply amazing at what they do. Our wedding day went so smooth and on time! I cannot recommend enough.Sent on 11/15/2019
