Excellent planner with a fun personality

Sammi was an incredible wedding planner. From introducing us to vendors to the execution of the whole event Sammi was there to help make our wedding perfect. While almost everything went according to plan when there was an error with a vendor Sammi stepped in and turned their SNAFU into one of the best aspects of our wedding.

Sammi truly knows the Austin area. This knowledge helped us find some of the best options we did not know about for specific vendors, like a caterer that can pick up food from any restaurant. She helped us pick a venue that worked for our criteria, and she was there for every meeting to make sure all the right questions were asked, and our desires met.

I think what we appreciate most about Sammi was her kind and honest approach to giving us a perfect wedding. After only a few meetings, Sammi knew when we were not completely happy with how a vendor meeting went and would immediately follow up with us to make sure we had exactly what we wanted. This thoughtful approach gave us the best and only wedding we’ll ever have, so we’re thrilled that we got the opportunity to work with her. We cannot recommend her more highly as a wedding planner.

We cannot recommend Sammi enough!

We are a hair and makeup vendor that work with Sammi quite often. She is one of our favorite coordinators to work with, especially for our out of town brides. She is always so professional and friendly. Her organization and communication is top notch. We especially loves that she sets up Zoom meetings with clients so we have a chance to meet them with her to discuss their hair and makeup ideas and details for the wedding day. She is excellent with communicating and working out details such as contract information and day of timelines. Every wedding we have worked with Sammi has gone very smoothly and stress free. We cannot recommend Sammi enough and can't wait for more weddings with her!

Sammi is amazing!

I was not originally going to hire a planner but my venue required a day of coordinator and I am so glad they did because I had no idea how much I needed Sammi! She was extremely responsive and very professional. She gave me so much needed advice and made me feel as relaxed as possible on the wedding day. She took so much off my plate by communicating with my vendors and creating the perfect timeline and I loved her assertiveness with my rowdy wedding party. Very highly recommend!
