A perfect day made possible by Sammi
We originally had planned to coordinate our wedding ourselves and realized very quickly we were in over our heads. After meeting with a few wedding planners, Sammi was a clear stand out and made us feel like she could make our special day come together. One of the things that we appreciated most, was her willingness to work with vendors that were gay friendly. In a market that is advertised toward straight couples, we wanted to be sure that our vision of love and family was kept at the forefront of any vendor we hired. We hired her for full service. My husband and I are not good with rejecting vendors and are both pretty bad procrastinators. Sammi was able to coordinate everything with vendors for us (as well as rejecting the ones we didn't want). She also made sure that we were making progress on things by sending friendly reminders and making time for meetings at our local coffee shop. She was available to us the entire week of our wedding and coordinated our rehearsal as well. We were so happy to have her there since we had no idea what we were doing. She was thoughtful about placement of people and timing so the photographer and videographer could capture everything of our wedding day. The biggest relief was having her there for our day of ceremony. Sammi created a minute by minute schedule for all of the vendors, as well as, the wedding party. Sammi and her assistant Felicia helped set up our entire venue while we were out getting ready and taking photos. She made everything run smoothly and kept the vendors on schedule so that my husband and I could enjoy our special day. It was honestly better than we could have ever imagined and Sammi is a huge reason for that. She is very kind and fun to work with. We would highly recommend getting Sammi if you ever have the opportunity. Thank you Sammi!Sent on 06/04/2019

Sammi and Felicia helped us with our day-of coordination, and we were so happy with how everything turned out! Sammi met with me and my partner a couple times before the wedding and was very open to our vision for things and responsive in finalizing a wedding day timeline and being in touch with our vendors. She then passed all of this information on to Felicia, who was there on the day of- from 10am-midnight. Their work allowed us and our family members to really relax and enjoy our wedding day instead of having to be on top of everything. When we were delayed in our scheduled timeline of things, Felicia communicated with everyone necessary to make sure that things could proceed smoothly, which they did! She also had a great design sense and did a wonderful job setting things up.Sent on 06/16/2019

The Best Money You'll Spend on Your Wedding
Sammi is Amazing!!! She helped me plan my wedding in 6 months from start to finish this past fall...really she had it all put together within 3 months and then it was on cruise control from then on. I have no idea how she made it look so easy - the thought of trying to narrow down the list of vendors and then set up interviews and then choose from them was so intimidating to me, I didn't even know where to start but with Sammi in my corner it was a breeze! She has great connections - this is not one vendor that she recommended to me that wasn't excellent. She would narrow down the list of vendors that I needed to 1-3 of each type and then went to the meetings with me. She really got to know me and caught the vision for my wedding early on so all of her suggestions were spot on.Sent on 06/26/2019
She (and Felicia) made my wedding day flawless and I didn't have a single worry about the day. I never felt like of the "hiccups" of the day were that big of a deal, because I knew Sammi would be able to make it work. I cannot thank her enough for all she did to help my husband and I make our day special. I cannot recommend her enough!!!
