Excellent Service and Knows ALL the vendors!
I hired Raina back in Feb to help me with my wedding planning since I work full time. Not only has she been available to answer all my little questions she has been able to help me schedule meeting with my busy vendors and plan decor for my day of. She has gone WAY above and beyond to help me feel organized and like I'm prepared for my wedding! It might seem like a lot of money to hire a planner but let me tell you, this has been the best money I've ever spent! The peace of mind knowing I'm in experienced hands is worth every penny!Sent on 07/28/2020
UPDATE: Post Wedding: There are really no words that can fully articulate how much work, energy, effort and enthusiasm Raina and her team put into helping me plan and coordinate my wedding day. If you aren’t sure if you should hire a planner/coordinator let me advise that hiring Raina was the best investment I made for the whole wedding. You spend a lot of time, attention and money hiring vendors leading up to your big day… have a professional there with you coordinating and taking care of all the details! I don’t think I had to lift a finger on my wedding day to do anything other than put on my dress and that is PRICELESS. I was able to relax and soak in every moment with my husband (now) and our families! She also helped me with the styling for my wedding and helped me with all the details like choosing place settings and how to fold napkins! She is worth her weight in gold and you will feel like you have your very own fairy godmother there making your wedding go off seamlessly!

Raina was beyond helpful and her team exceeded my expectations completely. No detail was left out, even with me being an out of town bride during COVID-19.Sent on 08/30/2020

Raina is a MUST HAVE for your wedding!
I simply cannot imagine planning all that went into my wedding day without Raina by my side. She found me the perfect vendors, saved me money and more importantly sanity and all while keeping a smile on her face. She kept reassuring me that there are no problems, only solutions and she always managed to find a compromise that both my mother and I preferred to our original ideas. She is truly a life saver and now a trusted friend as well. If you don’t hire her you’re making a HUGE mistake. She’s worth every penny!Sent on 10/23/2019

Raina van Setter
Our fearless leader originally hails from upstate New York, but has never felt more at home than she does in Tennessee, Apparently sweet tea has always flowed in her veins...who knew? She gets really excited whenever a couple selects lemon for their wedding cake since its her favorite flavor and when she's not busy planning events and weddings of all shapes and sizes she can often be found holed up somewhere cozy with a book. She's foodie who's all about petticoats, planning ahead and pretty things and she has a unique ability to reduce stress for her couples and their families so they can enjoy the planning process. Also, we are fairly certain that she drinks more tea than the Queen!
Our favorite Okie, who's not actually from Muskogee, contrary to popular belief. Hailing from the Cherokee tribe, Mariah was named after a song in the movie "Paint Your Wagon," she can often be found watching sports in her free time, which is rare since she is also currently in law school. Hailing from a really large family (she's one of 24 grandkids) she is our resident expert on family dynamics and her super power is being able to shop for shoes in the kids department...size 4 for this Cinderella!
A local gal from Franklin, TN, with a big heart and a passion for anything that glitters. When Caroline is not working on an event she can be found reading the classics or writing quirky little short stories about her cats. She is obsessed with the Nashville Predators and anything hockey related, however, what we find most impressive is that she's our very own Dr. Doolittle! We are pretty much convinced she is an animal whisperer. She can such a connection animals, but especially cats and dogs.
Raina and her crew made The Whitefiled's wedding seem like a dream. The venue looked beautiful and everything moved so seamlessly! Even down to an employee opening and closing the door for guests as they made their way through the buffet. (easier for the guests and helped keep the cold air inside!) As a wedding DJ/MC I see a lot of wedding either without a coordinator or with a bad one and let me tell you it makes a huge difference! You will not be disappointed with Raina and her staff!
Wedding & Events by Raina is outstanding! Raina and her team provide so much professionalism mixed with personality and care. "On top of it" doesn't even adequately describe the amount of thoughtfulness and attention to detail that Raina and her team bing to the table. I've worked with Wedding & Events by Raina for weddings as well as other events, and they go all out to provide a smooth and enjoyable experience for everyone. Highly recommend!
Working with Raina has always been a pleasure, as she has a positive can-do attitude and incredible attention to style and detail! As a wedding photographer, it's always a great feeling to have confidence and support with the wedding coordination team, and Raina's is top notch! If anyone is looking for an experienced wedding or event planner/coordinator, I'd highly recommend her!
