Hiring Sammi was easily the best decision we made for our wedding. When we started working with her about a year before our wedding, we didn't even know where to start with planning. We knew generally how we wanted the wedding to look and approximately how many people we'd have, but Sammi really helped us get organized and find vendors to make our vision happen. Most of the vendors we ended up settling on were ones she recommended, and they all turned out amazing! The couple of vendors we used that she hadn't worked with before, she seemed to communicate with seamlessly, and she left us with very little to worry about. Throughout the entire planning process she gave us her honest opinions on vendors and helped us consider details that we never would’ve thought about without her. She was also super responsive to our emails and texts about anything wedding-related! On the day of the wedding, she had all of the decorations and vendors coordinated. She prepared schedules for every vendor and a separate one for us and other people in the wedding. We had a couple little hiccups come up the day of, but none of them were a big deal because Sammi had solutions immediately. We followed all of her suggestions on the schedule of events for the day (time of dinner, speeches, etc.) and we got so many compliments on how nicely everything flowed! We would definitely recommend Sammi to anyone looking for a wedding planner!Sent on 11/24/2019

Loved working with Sammi!
We found Sammi off of Google, and to be honest it was fate that we found her! She was so organized, and she was able to handle tough situations for me. There was one of our vendors that was being difficult, and instead of me stressing over it she took it over and made it right. To have her knowledge and coordination behind us on our wedding day was amazing! I would recommend Sammi and Wishful Weddings to anyone who would need her. Thanks Sammi!Sent on 10/21/2019

Great Day-of Coordinator!
When we started planning our wedding, everyone told us we needed to have a day-of coordinator! My husband and I are so pleased that we went with Sammi and Wishful Weddings. Sammi was completely on top of everything! It gave us such peace of mind to know that she was handling all the coordination on our wedding day. The day-of coordination package really was a great value. Sammi set-up pre-wedding meetings with us and came with us to see the venue ahead of time. She also ran the rehearsal and managed all the vendor coordination in the last couple weeks. The questions she had made us think through details we might otherwise have overlooked. It was also fun and reassuring that so many of our vendors had worked with her previously and were excited to work with her again! We kept hearing from our vendors "Your coordinator is Sammi? We love working with her!" Overall our experience with Sammi and Wishful Weddings was excellent! We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding planner or day of coordinator!Sent on 11/19/2019
