Samantha and her team are 100% amazing, and I cannot thank them enough for making our wedding perfect. Starting off planning, everything seemed pretty overwhelming. Neither my husband or myself had planned such a huge event, and we wanted it to...
go well. After quickly realizing we needed help, we contacted Samantha and had our first consult. My husband and I both loved her.
She took our ideas and made them realities. First, she had us do a pin board of ideas, vibes, colors, etc. that we liked. Mine was unusual. It had pictures of forests, cottages, herbs drying up in farmhouse kitchens, twinkle lights lighting mossy stone walkways….you get the idea. Samantha turned that into an actual theme of enchanted forest and went with it. We ended up with greenery on almost every surface and candles lighting things like fireflies. We wanted pie rather than cake, and she suggested hand pies for guests (and when our baker ended up not being able to make the pies at the last minute, she jumped in and fixed it so we didn’t have to worry about it). We wanted our dogs involved somehow too. So, Samantha suggested an amazing local artist who made lifelike replicas of them that became part of our entry way decor.
Samantha handled details, kept us sane, and made sure we were aware of all our options during the entire process. She kept our goals at the center, and made sure that we were always taken care of. Whether it was dealing with a slow-responding vendor or an unclear quote, Samantha handled it with grace, poise, and determination. Even when we had to postpone the wedding due to covid, she handled the changes with an impressive amount of skill. Samantha guided us through it while minimizing stress.
On the day of the wedding, Samantha and her team rallied and somehow went even further above and beyond. She directed us through everything, giving directions and making sure that I was taken care of. She handled the last minute emergencies deftly and quickly, and always took the time to check in. It seems like a small thing, but she even make sure I was fed throughout the day. That was incredible, because I know a lot of brides that end up basically not eating on the day of the wedding.
The first time I saw the inside of the tent, I actually cried a bit. It was beautiful. Samantha set up a sneak preview for us before the ceremony. We did first look pictures, and she led us (eyes covered) to the tent. My husband and I got to explore the tent before the guests, and even had a practice first dance (with snacks!!) on our own.
During the ceremony, Samantha and her team kept everything going smoothly. It was honestly seamless. I have a medicine that I have to take at a specific time each night, and warned Samantha ahead of time. At that time, she showed up with my pill case and a glass of water standing by my side, handed them to me, waited for me to take the medicine and the water, and then melted into the crowd.
At the end of the night, she packed us up and sent us home feeling like we were on top of the world. Honestly, the night was the best night I’ve ever had. I felt like an actual princess, and that was thanks to Samantha and her team. I cannot count the number of people that have said that they loved it and thought it was one of the best weddings they’ve ever been to. And I heard the same thing from the people actually involved in the wedding party/immediate family as well.
I would 100% recommend hiring her. Seriously, she’s worth it.
