    Talented, humble, hilarious, professional, and organized. Simply the best!

    I’ve been thinking of what to write for my review for quite some time and I still cannot put into words how simply incredible of a person and planner Paula is.

    Paula is one of the best people we have ever met, period. She led us, our vendors, and her team through 2 reschedulings due to COVID-19, and produced the most beautiful wedding beyond anything we ever could have imagined.

    Paula is patient, kind, and so humble. Please do take my word on this because as a licensed therapist with a decade of experience, I consider myself to be a fair judge of character.

    There were so many times when she easily could have fired us (and it would’ve been fair); we didn’t mean to be, but we were bridezilla and groomzilla. We’re perfectionists and both work minimum of 50hrs/week and our work became super busy in the month before the wedding. We worked with her over the course of THREE years and never once was she rude or unprofessional despite the fact that there was a global pandemic occurring that threw the wedding industry upside down and sideways. The other vendors only ever had wonderful things to say about her too.

    Paula’s skills speak for herself and can be viewed on her website, but what you can’t easily see is that she is so hard working and thinks of details I’ve never heard of! My aunt has unobtainably high standards and was a bit high maintenance at the wedding and even she was impressed by Paula!

    In sum, if you’re on the fence, call her and see for yourself. Paula, if you see this we love you and our next fluffy child better be adorable because they’re going to be named Paul or Paula in your honor! (No, we’re not kidding.)

    Photos by Eichar photography, venue is the Sablewood by Lisa Shaul, cake by Mazzone catering, and florals by Monika Boston of Burke and Boston - I recommend all of them (and yes, Paula showed us venue and connected us to vendors other than the photographers). Photos below are from preview and not the full album; will post more professional photos with details once we have them.

    Your Event - Paula Smith Designs Inc.'s reply:

    WOW Kate and Chris...thank you thank you thank you!!! We've certainly logged many miles together (with wild detours!) given the hand we were dealt these last years with COVID. With that, came many opportunities to learn each other and understand deeply not only what your wedding day dreams were but what an extraordinary couple you are. My heart broke each time we had to lean in another direction and I thought no one deserves this. Your love conquered the changing tides. And I am so glad that I was able to steer, console, temper the anxiety and in the end deliver the wedding you dreamed of and so deserved. We had some good laughs because it was better than crying, right? And I can't wait to meet your 4-legged Paul(a) one day. Thanks to this "longest running replanning", I know with all certainty that "great event" are worth waiting for. Love you both so!

    Hire Paula and her team for a magical, stress-free event!

    We worked with Paula for our engagement party in a rustic barn setting, and I cannot recommend her team enough! Paula and her team ensured that our party was beautiful, on-time, and stress-free. All of our guests enjoyed the evening - it was truly magical! Paula is thoughtful, professional, and truly a joy to work with. She considers every single detail, down to the tiniest things (that add up to make a big difference!) Do not hesitate to hire her for your next event!

    Your Event - Paula Smith Designs Inc.'s reply:

    Dear Karianna,

    Thank you so much for this lovely review! We loved being with you to kick off your engagement and to welcome your favorite people to this gem of a setting. It was such a pleasure for us and an honor!
    Enjoy this special time dreaming about your next steps and big day!

    My best,
