    Best purchase for the entire wedding!

    Prior to Sammi, I had a day of coordinator who wasn’t up front about pricing and we had to let him go. I was scrambling a month before the wedding to find someone and my sister found Sammi on the knot. When I reached out to her, she got back to me quickly, was up front with her very reasonable pricing, and she was so on top of everything. I was working nights and she flexed to my schedule for meeting times that worked for me. She coordinated everything with the vendors, she met with me and my mom and vendors as many times as she needed to in order to have everything set up. She handled the rehearsal and the wedding day flawlessly, and she even stayed to assist with clean up when we were having a hard time with it, even though we hadn’t paid her to do that service. When I went through wedding gifts, she left me a card and a gift card. All in all, Sammi was the best thing we invested money into for the entire wedding process. Thank you for everything Sammi!

    Amazing, flexible and so understanding!

    We unfortunately had to postpone our wedding due to COVID and Sammi was unavailable on our new date. She was extremely responsive and flexible while we were figuring things out and was so gracious to refund our deposit when we realized it ultimately wouldn't work out. I'm very sad to not have Sammi coordinate our day! Prior to canceling, she had been very helpful for finding vendors and determining logistics for the day. While I can't speak to the day-of-coordination experience, everything up until this point was fantastic. Thank you, Sammi!

    Thank you so much for your review Jamie, I really appreciate it! I am so disappointed and sad that I won’t be able to be your day-of coordinator next year, but I am so happy that I was able to help you find some of your vendors! Take care :)

    Absolutely wonderful experience having Sammi as our day-of coordinator

    Sammi was absolutely wonderful as our day-of coordinator for our May 2021 wedding! We are fortunate enough to be Sammi's first wedding in the Austin-area and she did such an incredible job. Sammi was very responsive and met with us multiple times before the wedding to clarify details. We hired Sammi for her Stunning Silver package as we had most everything planned. She took care of ensuring the vendors knew where and when to show up at the day of the wedding, had a detailed and thoughtful timeline planned, and made the entire day stress free. If you need a day-of coordinator for your wedding I highly recommend hiring Sammi. Thank you again Sammi! Jordan & Jacian
