Sorrell was helpful with planning our wedding in everyway. She was responsive to any text, call, or e-mail I sent. She made our day become what we had imagined, and then some! I would suggest her as a planner to anyone. Truly enjoyable to work with and made our day wonderful!

The best advice I could offer any couple planning a wedding is to call Sorrell! When we first started the planning process, I thought "I can handle this whole planning thing myself". Wow was I wrong! I hadn’t realized how overwhelming it could be with so much information out... Read More there. Calling Sorrell was the best thing I did and from day one of meeting Sorrell, I knew our wedding was in excellent hands! Sorrell’s encouraging and personal approach to wedding planning ensured our special day incorporated all of the important aspects we were looking for – elegance, seamless coordination, and best-of beauty and service for our guests. In the countless decision you have to make as a bride, Sorrell guided us through tough budgetary decisions, finding vendors who could execute our complex vision to sheer excellence (we had a secret garden theme), and the sometimes difficult to navigate familial dynamics of our guests. Her ability to be our advocate, trusted advisor, and confidante was bar-none! Sorrell becomes more than your wedding planner, she becomes your friend in some of the most intimate moments of your life! We can’t imagine what our wedding would have been without her expertise and guidance. During our wedding day, we knew we were in excellent hands knowing that Sorrell was taking care of all of the details so that we could focus on the occasion and be in the moment. She truly is also, just the nicest person you will ever work with and has the experience and talent to make your wedding beyond what you could have imagined! To this day, our guests are still amazed at how seamlessly the events were conducted and the attention to all of the details for them. Sorrell ensures that everything your guests see, hear, and do are thought of throughout the entire planning process. Most of all, Sorrell helped me to stay prioritized, organized, and sane! We look forward to working with Sorrell again for other events in our lives and I can’t recommend her enough to future couples!

I would not recommend Events by Sorrell. Upon contact she admitted she had *never* written up a proposal for services to be rendered nor did she provide an accurate description of her role. When I told her my wedding date she said she was available but then later told me she... Read More would actually be attending her friends wedding and would send her assistant for an additional fee. I found working with Sorrell difficult. When we received the "proposal" for decor, not only was is completely out of budget, but the layout for the venue was completely wrong. I wasted a lot of time emailing back and forth to ultimately decide not to work with Sorrell. If you're looking for a wedding planner, I would [seriously] consider someone else.

I would like to point out that you did not hire me as a wedding planner. You asked me for a design proposal which I gave you. I have done MANY proposals and designs and my brides have loved them. What I have NOT done... Read Less Read More

Sorrell was very affordable and she provided me exactly what I needed. I requested a day-of wedding planner and she came to my rehearsal too to run through some things. She kept in contact via e-mail, which was nice. She asked a lot of questions and caught on to my theme... Read More quickly. Our personalities meshed well together and she was happy to go along with anything I wanted. She also even brought a few items of her own to use and didn't charge me rental fees which was great since everyone in the wedding industry likes to do that. I love that her husband came along with her to help out too. He was very nice. I would recommend her.

I started planning my wedding a year and a half in advance knowing I wanted to do it all myself.

Read More contacted Sorrell and she totally understood my wedding plan and gave me wonderful advice for some of the details. I hired her for the "Day of" and it was the BEST THING I DID! She is amazing at making sure my plan remained the way I wanted it and that my guests were enjoying themselves. I sent her pictures of how I wanted all the tables to look on wedding day and she made sure they looked the same way! She helped me out with my apps for cocktail hour and made and emergency beer run. Events by Sorrell really tied my perfect day up. She hit the details I overlooked and she made sure I didn't have to worry about anything. THANK YOU!!!!

It was a very windy day, and the reception was outdoors. Sorrell not only managed to keep the table decorations in place but also kept everything beautiful throughout the evening!
