When my son and daughter in law told me that they were looking into a "Day of the wedding coordinator" I told I thought that they were crazy that there would be no need for that. It wasn't until the week of the wedding that I realized how much I valued and appreciated Jackie and all her work you really don't realize all that needs to be done and coordinated the week prior to the wedding and actually on the wedding day. You as a parent of the happy couple have enough of other fun and exciting things that need to be taken care of that day and WOW what a relief it was to know that someone else had all the last minute details taken care of and we could actually sit back and just enjoy the moment with a sigh of relief that with all the months of planning this beautiful day is finally here and will go off without a hitch. I would highly recommend Jackie and Smooth Tie-The-Knots Day of Wedding Cooridnation!Sent on 05/26/2016

I was hesitant at first to pay for a wedding coordinator. It turns out, it was the best decision I had made for my wedding. IT WAS 100% WORTH IT THANKS TO JACKIE AND HER TEAM. I did not have to worry about anything and I was able to enjoy my big day. Jackie was professional and had my best interest at heart. I would HIGHLY recommend her and her team. Thank you for making my big day so special and stress free!Sent on 07/21/2016

I loved working with Jackie at Lake Lanier Islands for my wedding at Pineisle Pointe this past June! I'm not a planner and don't enjoy it. She made the process seamless and easy and took care of almost everything we wanted done! She followed up with my mom and me as well as vendors. We met once a month 6 months before the wedding which was the perfect amount of time. She knows what she is doing. You will not regret booking Jackie to help with planning your wedding and the flow of events!!!!Sent on 06/27/2017

If you are looking for that person who will take the stress out of your big day - look no further! Jackie Raez is amazing!! As mother of the bride, I wanted to select/contract with the vendors directly, but didn't want to orchestrate the big day. That's where Jackie came in and did a beautiful job of ensuring that my daughter's wedding was perfect. Jackie met with my daughter and I several times before my daughter's wedding to assist us with all the details and provided great feedback in regards to vendors. Jackie became a trusted friend during the planning process and orchestrated my daughter's wedding flawlessly. She is professional, knowledgeable, flexible and supportive. You will not be disappointed in selecting Jackie Raez/Wedding Consultant.Sent on 03/16/2016

Where do I start? I honestly don't know what I would have done without Jackie. We planned a wedding in a little more than 2 months, from Seattle and only met her once prior to the wedding but felt absolutely comfortable with her. She was flexible and worked with my schedule and the 3 hour time difference. Prior to the wedding she was continuously checking in with me and making sure things were moving along. And on my wedding day she took care of EVERYTHING. We didn't worry about anything except for getting down that aisle. I am so glad that I chose to have a wedding planner and even more happy that I chose Jackie and Smooth Tie the Knots. Thank you so much for making our wedding day "Smooth."Sent on 01/11/2016

I don't know what I would have done without Jackie. To say she is amazing is an understatement! She was on top of everything from beginning to end. She was my voice of reason and the person I knew I could count on when I felt overwhelmed. On the day of, I didn't have to worry about a thing. She and her assistant handled everything, and I mean EVERYTHING! Jackie is so nurturing, you can't help but feel 110% comfortable with her. She was my go to Mom for things that I didn't want to burden my Mom with. She took my bridezilla moments with ease and her passion for all things wedding can be seen from beginning to end. Wedding planning is so not my cup of tea, so contracting Jackie was absolutely the greatest decision I made. She just has a way of easing the anxiety associated with planning such an important memorable event. I could go on and on and on. God blessed me richly by having her play such an important role in my special day. I'd do it all again as long as she was by my side!Sent on 12/14/2015

Jackie was absolutely amazing!! We booked her a month before our wedding date and made sense of everything. We were so happy to have her handle everything from scheduling the whole day to meeting with vendors. Her professionalism and years of experience definitely made us feel more relaxed during such a stressful time as planning. Jackie is absolutely the best and worth every penny!!Sent on 10/21/2015

As the mother of the bride the only gift I ask for from my husband was a wedding planner. In saying that we were so blessed to find Jackie she is not only a wedding coordinter she the rock that you need during this time. Trust me when I say at every meeting you have with her you walk away going wow she thinks of everything down to the last tiny thing.Sent on 10/21/2015
My husband always asked what does the wedding planner do and I would try and explain to him in husband launge and he would just shake his head. The day of the wedding and the next day he came to me and said " wow she was worth the price of gold the way everthing went so so smooth. Our daughters face was what any parent could ask for.
A Big Thank You to Jackie and her assent for the best experience ever.

Jackie went above and beyond for our wedding! Every time we met with her we couldn't believe how much we needed her guidance to keep us on track and how organized and detailed she was. Her wedding timeline made my mother, groom, and myself at ease. I couldn't imagine now how stressful this process would have been without her! She was our rock who always responded timely and with great advice. You don't just need a wedding planner, you need Jackie!Sent on 11/10/2015

As parents of the bride, we were extremely satisfied with all the services provided by Jackie Raez of Smooth-Tie-The-Knots. We met her at the Wedding Showcase at Lake Lanier Islands, and she made an excellent impression with her knowledge of the of the venue. Throughout the time we worked with her Jackie proved to be an excellent advisor, She is very organized and kept us on track for the event through meetings and email updates.Sent on 10/18/2015
On the wedding day Jackie was most attentive to all parties involved, and kept us on schedule. Her working knowledge of the facility and vendors kept us from having any issue. Jackie is an excellent communicator and resource for anyone planning a wedding! There is no doubt in our mind that this was the best vendor choice we made.
Marta · Married on 10/10/2015
Jackie was there for us every step of the way. She really kept us organized. She helped immensely in communicating with all our vendors and came through for me when my original makeup artist didn't work out. She felt more like a wedding planner, not just a day of coordinator. We had a beautiful wedding and we owe so much to Jackie and her staff!Sent on 12/14/2015
Rachel · Married on 09/26/2015
Jackie was very organized and created a sense of calm. She did this through attending to great follow through, attention to detail and communication with all vendors and the bridal party. We could not have gotten through this event with her and her team.Sent on 10/05/2015
Bethany · Married on 09/19/2015
Jackie was an outstanding resource for us as we planned our wedding. She is very familiar with the Lanier Islands Resort, the ins and outs of weddings there, knows the staff and works seamlessly with their teams, and can always recommend a local vendor. She is timely with emails and flexible with times and dates to meet in person. On my actual wedding day, she was super prepared with a timeline, keeping everyone informed and organized so I wasn't overwhelmed with questions. She was also very calming. All of my bridesmaids enjoyed working with her and felt similarly. I feel I really couldn't have done it without her and would recommend her to anyone planning a wedding!! She is GREAT!Sent on 09/24/2015
Smooth Tie-The-Knots- Month Of/Day Of Wedding Coordination's reply:Thank you so much Bethany and James for such kind words. It was an honor to be part of your Special Day and get to know your fun bridal party! This is why we love to be of service! Thank you and many blessings for this new stage in your lives!!!

My husband and I are so thankful that we chose Jackie Smooth Tie-The-Knots- Month Of/Day of Wedding Coordination! She was very knowledgeable about everything wedding, we couldn't have asked for a better coordinator! My husband even joked (quite often) that hiring Jackie was his wedding present to himself! From the first phone call to the wedding day send off, she truly made us feel like we were guests at our own event. I was such an anxious and stressed out bride, unable to make decisions at times yet Jackie was very patient with me, always positive and flexible with my last-minute changes! She was perfectly professional with my friends and family, and as a bonus, because my mother-in-law speaks only Spanish, Jackie was able to communicate fluently with her at our rehearsal to ensure that she felt included and comfortable. This company lives up to the name, Smooth! Jackie and her team set up our decorations, gift/card table, signing book, sand bucket for sparklers, even gave us a customized and beautiful name/date plaque for the gift table! She communicated with all vendors to ensure that our special day was just as we had imagined. For all the details that it is easy to forget on the wedding day, for instance, my husband seemingly forgot how to cut a cake in front of all our friends and family, Jackie was there, coaching him along! I also had trouble remembering to hold my bouquet just right for pictures, and Jackie kept a close eye on me to ensure that I would look my best! I didn't have to worry about making sure all of the decorations were cleaned up, because yes, Jackie and her Team took care of that too! To be honest, I could go on and on about how wonderful Jackie was for us, but I'm pretty sure this comment box has a text limit! I would sign a contract with her again in a heartbeat if I had any other big events to put together!! Thank you Jackie and your Team, you are the best :)Sent on 10/01/2015

Jackie was absolutely wonderful with the help of carefully planning every aspect of my wedding! On the big day she was there early helping with decorations and helping coordinating with the other vendors to make sure everything ran smoothly. She even transported me and the bridal party after the reception! I would recommend her to anyone!Sent on 08/08/2015

Jackie was our guardian angel for my daughter Megan's wedding and reception yesterday. I have said many times in the last few months that we could not have pulled off this wedding and reception without her and it is so true. My first piece of advice to anyone getting married in the Atlanta area would be to hire Jackie. She is much more than a Day-of Wedding Coordinator - we started meeting several months ago. She is so detail-oriented and responsive to emails - she is much more than worth her fee. Thank you Jackie for enabling Megan and me to enjoy her wedding instead of having to orchestrate everything myself yesterday -- it made all the difference in the world. I could just relax and visit with friends and family and watch Megan enjoy her day -- priceless...Sent on 07/12/2015

Jackie was the coordinator at my recent vow renewal ceremony, and I am so glad that she was there! She kept an eye on the time-line throughout the entire day, and made sure all the vendors were in the right place at the right time. I didn't have to worry about a thing! If any problems came up at all - I wasn't aware of them because I had Jackie there to make sure everything ran smoothly. Having a wedding coordinator is a MUST for any "bride to be"! Jackie will make sure your special day is just as perfect as you always dreamed it would be. She handles all those little issues and problems that can pop up and removes any stress from the bride (and the brides mom) allowing you to enjoy what is sure to be one of the best days of your life!Sent on 05/19/2015

Jackie and Lisa could not have been nicer or more efficient. As the Mother of the Bride, I can say that these two women worked tirelessly to make sure our event was perfect! Not once did I ask a question that they did not know the answer. They made sure that things came together just like we planned. They were never bossy or unpleasant. They kept things moving along on the schedule that they provided - and it worked seamlessly. I can't think of one thing that we would have done differently, and not one thing was a disappointment. Everything went smoothly and was exactly how we wanted it. Invest the time up front to let them know what you would like, and count on them to make it happen. We are extremely happy that we hired Smooth Tie the Knot - and we highly recommend that you do the same. You will be happy you did!Sent on 04/06/2015

Jackie was definitely the glue that held our entire wedding together. Not only is she the day-of coordinator, but she is more like an all out full blown wedding planner. She kept my husband and I on track the entire time, drove out of her way to meet with us, contacted all of our vendors to discuss schedules, and basically kept the stress completely off of me. She was the by far the best money we spent during our planning process! She went to all of our vendor appointments with us and did it all with a huge smile on her face! She helped us find the greatest vendors from our photographer and hair and makeup artist... She knows everyone! I can't say enough wonderful things about Jackie! You will absolutely love working with her!!!Sent on 04/19/2015

I wish I could give Jackie 100 stars.Sent on 02/25/2015
She was the most amazing, calm, organized, and unbelievable planner we could ever have imagined. We never would have made it through our wedding without her. She and her awesome assistant had every vendor, family member and bridal party member looped into the schedule, and made sure that everything was done on time.
Jackie isn't just a wedding planner, she has basically become part of our family now. I would recommend her to everyone and anyone if you want someone who will take care of you, and all the details of your special day. We would hire her 1,000x over again.
Pamala · Married on 11/14/2014
Jackie was my sisters wedding planner and she did a great job. She came to our first meeting with an outline of what services she'd provide which was what sold me. She kept us on task and gave very important and valuable information during the rehearsal. During the wedding she kept things in order and at the reception she worked very hard to ensure things proceeded as my sister had planned. She kept our valuable safe and had a pleasant demeanor throughout the entire event.Sent on 12/16/2014

Jackie was a pleasure to work with. She made the whole process of planning the wedding a smooth one. She was very organized and her knowledge of the event site and the other vendors was a big plus for us. We could not have had this event without her help and knowledge. She was easy to work with and had some ideas we had not thought about. It was well worth the money having her help with the planning of our daughters wedding. From my husband.

We cannot compliment Jackie enough for how much she helped bring everything together for us on our big day. From the phone calls to make sure we were on track in the months leading up to the wedding, to coordinating with the other vendors, she really helped make planning and execution painless. On the actual day of the wedding we had nothing to stress out about and were able to just kick back and enjoy the day, Jackie's services are highly recommended.Sent on 11/15/2014
