My fiancé and I were planning our SA wedding from the East Coast, and to say we were overwhelmed and didn't know where to begin would be an understatement. Natalie listened to our vision, respected our budget, and recommended vendors she trusted to help us narrow down our options. Given the strong relationships she has with vendors, we were able to get better deals than we otherwise would have been able to. I honestly think the difference in what we saved (not to mention the time and stress) more than paid for Natalie's fee. Leading up to the wedding, she totally took over and managed all of the logistics. Not only did Natalie handle all of the details, she was a great sounding board as I debated decor ideas and whether certain additions were worth it. On the day of the wedding I knew Natalie would make sure everything went smoothly and ensure our vision truly came to life. There were some bumps in the road (freezing temperatures in Texas and a broken earring, for example), but Natalie had a plan for it all. She kept us focused and on time, allowing us to truly just take in the day and enjoy every moment. I still can't get over how perfect the day was, and I can't thank Natalie enough for the crucial role she played. I will definitely be recommending her to all of my SA friends.
Natalie is the reason why my wedding went as smoothly as it could possibly be! She is truly an incredible person. Both my husband and myself at the time lived in two different cities, neither in San Antonio, and Natalie was incredibly flexible working with our crazy schedules. She was able to pack multiple appointments with vendors so that we could see as much in person on the one or two days we were in town each month. She truly went above and beyond. Not only this, she literally took the dreams in my head and MADE IT HAPPEN. She took the time to understand our vision and through her networking with so many vendors not only in San Antonio, but even bringing talent in from Austin- she brought it all to life. Oh and did I mention she was pregnant and later with a newborn through all of this ?!!? She is a WONDER WOMAN! I found Natalie because she was the wedding planner for my friend's wedding, and so I KNEW firsthand she would do a good job, and she 100% did with ours as well! We are recommending her to anyone we know getting married in San Antonio! She is very organized, highly creative, and overall truly connected with your wedding day. You don't often see wedding planners getting tearful during touching moments! She was truly present, and you can't beat that.
Natalie and her team were so wonderful from the first email until the very last follow up email after our wedding. Everything was seamless and you can tell they have a true passion for what they do. They have a lot of different options to satisfy every bride’s needs. There is not a ton of back and forth, they listen to what you say stick to the budget and make your dream wedding happen.
Quit "thinking about" hiring a wedding planner - hire Natalie and her team at Country Sugar! Whether you want someone to plan every detail or just provide some much needed stress relief the day of, by way of a Day-of-Coordinator, Country Sugar (and Queen of Harts) does it all! What impressed me most about them is how they show the utmost respect for the bride's wishes and budget. Furthermore, everything in the contract is extremely clear and there are no hidden surprises. Natalie and her team will be able to work with your budget and favorite vendors to create a beautiful day that you will look back on with wonderful memories.
Hiring Natalie and the Country Sugar team was EASILY the best decision we made during our wedding planning process. From the initial interview call, I knew she was the perfect fit to help us plan our big day. Natalie is creative, fun, attentive, organized and absolutely amazing at what she does. She immediately understood what we were looking for, and worked her magic to find and refer the perfect vendors, from florals, catering and music to invites and goodie bag items. We were planning our wedding from another city, and we depended on Natalie to be our eyes and ears in many cases. She kept everyone in line the weekend of our wedding, and she really gave me the extra confidence to relax and soak in every moment. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Natalie and Country Sugar - me, my (new) husband, and my family all loved working with her. We would never have found the special, local touches and vendors that made our wedding so special without her expert guidance!
I cannot say enough good things about Natalie & the Country Sugar team! I took care of the majority of the planning and reached out to Natalie in search of someone who could help with the final details and day-of support. They had the perfect package to fit our needs - Two Weeks Notice. She took over the communication with vendors two weeks prior to our wedding date, making sure vendor deliveries and arrivals were all scheduled accordingly. As anyone who has planned a wedding knows, there's high stress and sometimes things go wrong. Specifically, the day before the wedding we had a hiccup with our florist. I called Natalie in tears and she was quick to take on the task of making sure the flowers were fixed. She communicated with the florist throughout the day making sure that all bouquets, centerpieces and arrangements turned out the way they were supposed to, keeping me in the loop along the way. All of the florals turned out beautifully. Our wedding day was flawless, at least that's the way Natalie made it feel! It really was the most amazing day of our lives and I am so grateful that Country Sugar was there to support us.
I have worked with Natalie and her team at County Sugar for many years now. Their attention to details sets them apart and makes working with them a great experience and the event a great success! I highly recommend Natalie to all my brides/grooms.
Thank goodness for these people. Bonnie was my wedding coordinator and she was AMAZING. I could not have done it without her! I'm very organized and wasn't sure that I needed help, but hired them for month-of coordination anyway. And I am so glad I did, because they thought of a million things I hadn't even thought about. There were definitely some wrenches thrown in the plans on the day of my wedding, and it was truly a blessing to have such a professional team to smooth everything out. Bonnie is sweet and professional and just everything you'd want in a wedding coordinator. Book them!
Amazing wedding coordinator!!!!Reviewed on 1/09/2013 Ashley E
I can not express in words how wonderful the ladies at Country Sugar are! We are so grateful for Brandi and her amazing team. They are professional, prompt to answer/return emails and phone calls, provided creative suggestions and solutions, recommended amazing vendors, etc. Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and the women at Country Sugar made it possible. Hiring Country Sugar was the best decision we made and we wish we hired them to be there the night of the rehearsal dinner as well as this was our only regret. Amazing experience!

I loved Natalie Hart and her team for day-of coordination. I felt like I receive above and beyond day-of coordination and my complicated wedding would not have happened without her. She had awesome tips, an extensive vendor list and creative ideas that made my wedding more than I could have dreamed. I highly recommend Country Sugar for putting a unique spin on your wedding!
AMAZING!!!Reviewed on 10/16/2012 Kara M
Natalie was absolutely amazing. I cannot say enough great things about her. She was wonderful!! She took care of everything. Every little detail I could have imagined she took care of. The entire wedding went completely smooth and even when the other vendors got out of line a little, she immediately took care of it and everything went great. I would recommend Natalie to anyone and everyone.
Absolutely WonderfulReviewed on 5/01/2012 Mary V
I worked with Maggie from Country Sugar for my wedding and she went absolutely above and beyond anything I could have ever imagined! She captured my vision perfectly and made our day so spectacular with her attention to detail. Maggie is so sweet, professional, knowledgeable, smart, and helpful! I would book her over and over given the chance.
Perfect in Every Way!Reviewed on 4/11/2012 Ashley D
Brandi was a perfect asset to my wedding! She eliminated all last minute stresses leading up to the big day, and of course on the wedding day and throughout the night. She was a sweetheart & easy to work with. Everything I left up to her she made absolutely beautiful! I could not ask for anything more. I would use Country Sugar again and again for event planning, and they are highly recommended for a bride's big day :) They are trustworthy and stylish, and you cannot go wrong using their services. Thank you Brandi & Country Sugar for making my wedding a dream come true!
I Cried At How Perfect Country Sugar Made My WeddiReviewed on 12/03/2011 Amy G
As a wedding photographer I have met many wedding planners/designers through working with them at weddings. I know how important it is to have a team of talented, creative individuals who are there for you throughout your journey down the aisle. I met Country Sugar Events while shooting a wedding and was blown away at how hard working the team was and how smooth everything went. I loved their style, attention to details and integrity to make that wedding as perfect as possible for the couple. It was a huge success and was just touched at how amazing her team also worked with all the vendors to communicate any needs or timelines. When I began my own wedding planning I knew Country Sugar Events HAD to be my coordinator! Brandi and Maggie were absolutely amazing. I had constant communication with them through phone calls, text, and emails. She was available to meet and always had constant communication. She made my life and planning a piece of cake through follow ups, blog boards, and ideas! Country Sugar Events was amazing at rehearsal dinner and walked us through everything. The next day the team set up for the wedding at Three Points Ranch and I was a bit nervous because being a wedding photographer I know how little details are important. I had a candy bar, salsa bar, photobooth and over 30 tables to fill with decor. I had to just breath and leave everything to Country Sugar. When I arrived at the venue I hurried to look around before I stepped into my wedding dress. I was absolutely speechless. Tears began to roll down my eyes at all of the details Country Sugar had created with the decor. The whole day went by so quickly and never once was their ever an issue. It was perfect! That night after I left Country Sugar Events worked hard to organize and put up all the decor. Words cannot express the gratitude for having chosen them for my special day. As a little girl you often dream of your perfect wedding and what it would look like. You look at blogs, storyboards, pinterest to get that perfect look. Country Sugar Events gave me my dream wedding. Their hard work, passion and creativeness speaks volumes through their experience.
