Paula elevated a small event into something very beautiful and memorable.
I have known Paula for a long time as a talented designer and artist. And as I began to plan a special birthday luncheon for my husband, I asked for her creative help. Paula designed and printed unique invitations and menus. She then had the creative vision to turn party favors into place cards. At the end she coordinated perfect flower arrangements. And I had the luxury of not worrying about a thing, just enjoying the day!Sent on 04/15/2019

I have worked with Paula on event planning for over 15 years and have nothing but positive things to say about her professionalism, creativity and organization. In my capacity as head of a not-profit organization, I worked with Paula on the development, design and execution of numerous fundraising events including two large gala events that involved cocktail receptions, dinner, live and silent auctions, and gift bags. Paula handled all aspects of these events with a can-do attitude and brought to them her creativity and aesthetic acumen. I have also asked Paula to design and execute events for me personally, and have used her design services for invitations, business cards, announcements and website design. Paula is a delight to work with, always positive, enthusiastic and giving of her time and talent.Sent on 04/03/2019

Paula's attention to detail and eye for aesthetic, in both extravagance and simplicity, offers couples an experience they will never forget. With her bubbly personality, a wide range of skills, and the ability to think innovatively, Paula sets herself apart from other planners. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Paula to any couple looking to have a seamless, unique, and tailored experience.Sent on 03/15/2019

Talented, professional and genuine - Paula made it a most wonderful wedding
Having Paula Smith coordinate my daughter’s wedding made all the difference. Not only did she make sure 150 guests had a wonderful time, she was committed to making sure that the bride and groom and their families were able to enjoy every moment of the very special occasion. Her professionalism, thoughtfulness and attention to detail were unflagging. From our first phone call to her follow-up post wedding email, she was gracious, reassuring and genuine.Sent on 03/24/2019
Paula is truly responsible and very organized. She coordinated all aspects of the ceremony and reception, and when the day arrived she was discretely attentive and pleasantly decisive. Despite a day filled with showers, she worked with all involved to keep the ceremony outside, set against green mountains, freshly tilled fields and dramatic clouds. She toweled off seats, communicated with guests and musicians, and kept the schedule moving; amazingly the ceremony wrapped up just before the rain with everyone exclaiming it was a gorgeous setting.
Above all, working with Paula is fun. She is very creative and has an eye for aesthetics. She has good working relations with all her vendors and is a truly generous and helpful person. Her advice was knowledgeable and her suggestions were smart, but she was never insistent. She is committed to realizing your vision for a perfect wedding. Thank you, Paula!
