If you are considering a wedding planner, RSVP events, including Adrien and her team, come with my highest recommendation. I only wish I would have hired them sooner! Adrien's assistance for my wedding 8/5/17 was above and beyond my expectations. She helped me bring all of my... Read More ideas and dreams together for a spectacular event. The knowledge, expertise, and vision for our big day was spot on! We received countless notes and compliments from friends, family, and other vendors about the attention to detail, clear communication, concise timeline, and perfect flow throughout the day. I cannot thank Adrien and her team enough for dealing with everything that came up throughout the day so that I did not even know about it! She allowed my mother to finally get some sleep before the wedding (which was priceless!). Cannot say enough good things! You should book with RSVP Events!

Adrien is absolutely fantastic. She was so proficient and easy to work with. We had her as a day-of coordinator and she was just marvelous. The weeks prior, she kept me on track and took a good chunk of the confirmation work/final detailing/scheduling off my plate. And of... Read More course, from rehearsal through the day of the wedding, she was just a goddess. Having her there made it possible for me to sit back and gulp down some champagne, think about my vows and have happy tears with my bride tribe. Only word of advice from a bride who thought she'd read enough bridal mags in her day to handle anything: if I could do it all again, I would hire Adrien/RSVP for the full package, as it would've saved me a ton of time and stress. Seriously, she is SO LOVELY and she just "got it." She was cool-headed, calm, capable and visionary; she was helpful but unobtrusive. I can't say enough lovely things about her. It would've been worth every penny in retrospect, considering how much effort/time/money I spent in trying to handle it all on my own....I would happily bring Adrien in for full-service, if I could do it all again. RSVP is a 10/10.

I had the privilege of attending a wedding at a Wedding Barn in East Jordan Michigan. It was a terrific venue which had an outdoor ceremony site, several bar and lounge areas, outdoor patios. This place had a lot of things going on and an assortment of areas to enjoy. I... Read More remember thinking, “How can anybody keep this organized”? Well, there was absolutely nothing to worry about. Adrien had every detail under control throughout the entire evening. She seemed to have the focus and ability to do about 6 things at one time! She is always smiling, happy, and in control even when pulled in multiple directions at once. If you are looking for Wedding Planner services and want an experience that has someone else handling all the details so that you can enjoy your special day without worrying about things, I think Adrien and RSVP Events would be an outstanding choice!!! Fantastic job Adrien !

RSVP Events, specifically new owner Adrien Harding, was an absolute joy to work with. From communicating with vendors to the day of coordination everything went completely flawless. Our wedding ceremony and reception took place at Bissell Tree house, which only allows for... Read More only an hour and a half window for setup. Despite the impossible timeframe, Adrien and her team were able to pull it off with time to spare. Upon our arrival to the venue Adrien was completely in control of everything, leaving us stress free and able to focus on each other and our special day. Her and her team were extremely professional, organized, and come highly experienced. Hiring Adrien is hands down the best decision we could have made. THANK YOU to RSVP for making our perfect wedding day possible and for being so available every step of the way.

I did not have a positive experience working with RSVPs new owner, Adrien Harding. Our wedding was not treated with the same care and dedication as it had been when Lori was the lead coordinator with RSVP. We booked with RSVP when Lori was the lead coordinator in February of... Read More 2016 and throughout the planning Lori went above and beyond the call of duty. Unfortunately that care did not continue with Adrien. Details that Adrien assured would be handled on the day of the wedding were neglected, leaving our families to pick up the slack instead of enjoying the festivities. We are thankful that Lori was allowed to be at our wedding because initially Adrien told us she would not be working with RSVP moving forward. Thankfully Adrien was willing to honor our contract and let Lori stay and ‘assist’ with the wedding but she would need to be the main coordinator. Because of this Adrien had no idea what we wanted for our wedding despite having confirmed so much with Lori. Adrien is either not the most detail oriented person or just really didn’t care about our wedding. She sent me a seating chart with the wrong name for my groom, called me a different name during the rehearsal, was rude to our family, and generally was clueless on the day of the wedding. She came up to me before and after the ceremony to ask me questions that we had already confirmed. When you hire a coordinator you want them to figure things out beforehand and make decisions on the day of so they don’t have to bother you with stupid details before your ceremony! Unfortunately that did not happen with Adrien. The most frustrating issue we have is that Adrien double booked herself also and left in the middle of cocktail hour without saying goodbye to us. Had we not fought for Lori to continue her work on our wedding who knows what would have happened. Lori ensured the rest of our night went smoothly, took our bags to the hotel and checked us in, hung up clothes, and went above and beyond for us every step of the way. I’d encourage anyone considering working with RSVP under new ownership to monitor the reviews to see if our treatment is unique, I certainly hope it is. To say we feel disrespected is an understatement.

We hired RSVP Events over a year prior to my wedding date. At the time, Nancy was the owner of RSVP and Lori was my day-of coordinator.

We also had a traditional Korean ceremony to incorporate into our day, including additional set-up, tear-down during the reception. Adrien was on top of it and the entire day flowed smoothly. She's very professional, calm, organized, and experienced. Our day was perfect and RSVP had a big part in pulling it off!

I cannot say enough thank you's to Adrien. She was so wonderful to work with. My husband and I had a destination wedding and then we planned a small get-together for when we got home. However, this small celebration turned into 200+ people. My husband was hesitant to hire a...

We met with Adrien in a coffee shop so she could explain to my husband what she could help us with. He did not realize what all goes into an event like this and he agreed we needed to hire her. It was the best decision we could have made. She was awesome with communication and she did an excellent job finding deals and options for the budget of decorations/flowers/etc. she is so kind and amazing to work with. I'm just so happy to have met such a great and caring person. I hope we get to work with her again in the future!

Thanks to RSVP Events, my wedding was absolutely gorgeous, and I was able to enjoy each step of the planning process as a result of their guidance! When I first contacted RSVP, I only had a vague idea of what I wanted my wedding to look like, but Nancy was able to walk me...

When my wedding day arrived, I had total peace of mind knowing Nancy and her team were bringing the vision they helped me create to life. Still, I was completely blown away when I finally saw it all put together. Each detail was perfect, and the entire space looked spectacular. I cannot say enough how wonderful it was to work with Nancy and RSVP Events.

We worked with Lori Bloodworth for our wedding coordination and could not have been more happy with our experience! My husband and I had hired RSVP over a year before our wedding and actually worked with two coordinators prior to working with Lori, but unfortunately both of... Read More those coordinators left and she took over only about about 3 months before the big day. I was a little nervous that we would have a hard time getting her up to speed, but upon our first meeting, it was evident that this would not be a problem. Lori was so organized and had gone through all of our details ahead of time and had a list of things yet to do as well as a timeline for things already set! It did not take long for her to understand the vision we had for our wedding and she helped execute this perfectly! She kept a binder with all of our contracts, contact information for vendors and email correspondences. Every time I brought up something I would do, she volunteered to take care of it. This was what I was hoping for when initially hiring a wedding coordinator. Before working with Lori, I felt like I was doing nearly all of the foot work. As soon as she entered the picture, things completely turned around. She answered my questions and took care of things promptly and enthusiastically. Lori had some really great ideas when it came to thinking up ways to display food options on our escort cards and recommended a calligrapher that was perfect!! She contacted all of the vendors and set up delivery and set up times and worked with the JW Marriott to help bring everything together. The day of the wedding, things could not have gone more smoothly. If anything did not go according to plan, we had NO idea. She took care of all kinds of little details, made sure we were in the right place at the right time, and helped us execute a few surprises too, including helping myself and the bridesmaids do a surprise dance for my husband! There were a few things we forgot on the way to the church and I called Lori and she took care of it without hesitation. At the end of the night when we were all dancing, she and an intern helped move all of our wedding gifts to our suite so that our family and friends didn’t need to worry about anything. They helped clean up our suite from getting ready earlier in the day and displayed the gifts beautifully in the room --even leaving a few surprises for us to find when we arrived back to the room from the reception! Though there were a few “hiccups” leading up to Lori working with us, I would do it all over again to have the chance to work with her. She was so professional and fun to work with. I looked forward to all of our meetings and she took so much off of my plate leading up to the big day. I am so used to being the organized one and on the wedding day, I checked in a few times to make sure that “x” was done and every time she reassured me that it was already taken care of. What a relief to not have to worry about anything! I would highly recommend working with her and would do so again in a heartbeat!

Read More will compile your contracts and create a wedding timeline (all of the nitty gritty and tedious work you don’t want to do). Originally I thought I only had them for one day but they were also willing to meet with me twice and they were there for the rehearsal in addition to the ceremony and reception on my wedding day. To be candid, I was worried at first when working with RSVP events. My original coordinator emailed me telling me she was leaving for a different job and I was told I had to work with someone else. However, they made the transition process very easy, I didn’t have to repeat any details; it was like I was working with the new person all along. On my Wedding day, Amanda and Nancy were there. Nancy was the owner and Amanda was the intern. You would never think Amanda was an intern because of how professional she was and she seemed to have great ideas and know exactly what she was doing. Nancy was the owner, so she had plenty of experience. They did everything for me that day so I did not have to lift a finger. I had no anxiety the day of the wedding because I knew they were there to deal with it all. Nothing went wrong to my knowledge and if it did, they did a very good job of making it seem like it didn’t. There was a point where my one year old daughter desperately needed a nap. Nancy took her and let her nap in her arms for almost two hours! Its things like this that you remember and value. They were willing to go above and beyond in order to make my day as special as it could be. I am beyond grateful for everything they did.
