    Best in Nashville!

    Rachel and Meghan were the secret sauce to our wedding! They met with us several times before the wedding, scheduled phone calls and emailed us frequently. I was able to leverage their extensive wedding planning knowledge and make the best possible decisions for our wedding, including finding the most affordable AND best wedding vendors in town. Rachel is super bubbly and very capable of managing all vendors and details. Meghan is lovely, super quick and the perfect match! It’s great having TWO wedding planners. Our wedding went off without a hitch, and our family (and me!!!) were able to enjoy the entire day without worrying. Weddings by Rachel handled every single detail of the day. We’d hire them again, and I 100% recommend them to you. We purchased the month of package.
