Stress-free and seamless!

I can't say enough about how happy I was working with Leah. Extremely professional, thorough, and pleasant! I put a lot of work into the initial planning as I didn't initially think we needed the extra help, but once I handed over my vendor info I felt confident in Leah in... Read More picking up right where I left off. She also provided helpful information and suggestions when asked. Her follow-up and interaction with vendors was great, I had little involvement, and the weeks before as well as the big deal were seamless and stress-free. My husband and I were able to enjoy all of it, which was really important to us. I would certainly recommend Leah!

Leah from Another Wild Hare was amazing to work with, she's incredibly personable and professional,the perfect mixture for a wedding coordinator!!! While we had most of the 'big' decisions handled already, she was able to fine tune the details and stick to the vision we had for... Read More our rustic-shabby chic barn wedding in Harrisonburg, VA. My groom and I were struggling with where to make our grand entrance from and which part of the barn and venue to use for the ceremony, etc. Leah offered her opinion on the how tos and where's, which hadn't even occurred to us, it was such a relief! She had great contacts for servers for our limited budget and great craft tips since this was mostly a DIY wedding. Leah is quite the go-getter and quick to respond for any couples' needs, she took so much stress off of our plates and we've received many compliments on the wedding and the flow of the evening. My husband and I can't speak highly enough of Leah and her services and definitely recommend her for any big event you may have!

We loved Another Wild Hare

Reviewed on 10/26/2013

Leah and Another Wild Hare were amazing! We needed a wedding planner because we would never have found the time to plan the event, but we went into the planning with an EXTREMELY limited budget, considering that we wanted to invite about 120 people. Leah found us a venue --a... Read More STUNNING new venue that was still under construction and therefore willing to give us a great deal. Leah and Danielle felt like partners throughout the process, trying to figure out not just what we wanted, but who we are as people. They totally understood the style and feeling we were aiming for. And they made the process fun with their humor, good nature, patience, and positive attitude. Whenever either of us felt nervous or stressed about any aspect of the planning, we always felt reassured and calmed after speaking with Leah or Danielle. The day felt absolutely magical and everything ran smoothly --which was no small feat. Because we were on a limited budget, we were working with 5+ vendors (2 food trucks, appetizers that needed to be picked up from elsewhere, coffee and cake delivered separately). They pulled it all off without a hitch. We can't recommend their services highly enough!

I think the highest praise I can say about Another Wild Hare is that we only heard about one thing that didn't go as planned during my wedding - because they took care of everything else. And the one thing that I did hear about was a difficult situation that AWH handled well,... Read More involving our caterer's time mis-management. We hired AWH for day-of planning services and even though we knew they had several full planning clients, we felt like we got the attention and responses we needed.

Artists and Planners in One!

Reviewed on 7/23/2013 Alecia O

Another Wild Hare was one of the best decisions I made regarding my wedding (perhaps second only to choosing the groom). I was dragged to a wedding convention by my best friend where a sea of vendors were peddling services from catering all the way through to honeymoon planning.... Read More I haid no intention of partaking in anything the salon had to offer, when I noticed Another Wild Hare's table in the event planning section. It was the beautiful layout and general aesthetic of their table that sold me. I knew they could achieve the look I was going for in planning my wedding. From my first meeting with Another Wild Hare they struck the perfect balance of professionalism and comfort you hope to achieve with someone planning your one and only (hopefully) wedding. We sipped champagne and discussed what I wanted (a vintage circus wedding) and ideas immediately began flowing. They found our venue and our band and through their connections got us exactly who we wanted and at a fair price point. They did our floral for us! And our invitations! Ever the professionals, they provided us with competitors samples and pricing but in working so closely with them, AWH turned out to be the right choice. They knew exactly what we wanted BECAUSE THEY LISTEN. So many people in this industry have preconceived notions of what you should be ordering but Another Wild Hare's staff includes so many talented people that can help you shape and improve your vision of the day by listening to what you want and building on it. You hope that the day goes smoothly, but unfortunately that was not the case at our wedding. We encountered a catering meltdown (the only vendor we chose without the help of AWH!) and we were able to see how the planners handle pressure. They kept things from coming apart at the seams. But what AWH did the best was the aesthetics. It is their forte. Our vintage circus themed wedding had a contortionist and juggler (which AWH found) performing at our cocktail hour. There was a popcorn machine with seasonings made by their staff and a cotton candy send off. Inside our tent hung umbrellas and dynamite lighting (that we decided on the DAY BEFORE - and they made it happen). Our photobooth had the most elegant handmade masks and props, all the type of detailed, classy work you can expect in hiring Another Wild Hare.

The Best Wedding Planner!

A wedding planner needs to be a few things: -Organized -Friendly -Professional -Easily Reached -Knowledgeable -Dependable -Creative Another Wild Hare’s Team was amazing! I had a very clear vision for my wedding. I wanted a glamor filled, crystal and glass wedding. We had... Read More 180 guests and had a budget of $80,000. I had meet many planners who had 20 plus years of experience, but they just didn’t seem excited about working with us. They seemed more interested in the money than anything else. Leah was very prepared for our first meeting. She remembered everything I had told her. She had created a vision board based on what I told her. She listened to me and put me at ease. She didn’t even ask me about my budget! She valued our business for the excitement of the event and didn’t seem to be in it for the money. In fact, they charge a flat fee regardless of your budget so for us Another Wild Hare was a great value. Another Wild Hare will be planning our New Years Eve Party!
