Stephanie is absolutely spectacular! I highly recommend to anyone seeking an event planner. ESPECIALLY WEDDINGS! To name just a few of her outstanding qualities- she is able to maintain a highly professional demeanor but was also fun and genuine. I was recently telling my... Read More husband that I feel as if I had developed a friendship with her and was sad to see our constant communication regarding planning details for the wedding come to an end. You can truly tell that Stephanie loves her job. That's what makes her stand out from so many others. Despite some minor bumps from our other vendors- she was able to hold complete composure and solve the problem on the spot- quickly and professionally, all with a smile on her face. I had people approach me throughout the wedding asking me how I found this hidden gem of a person. I have absolutely zero complaints or recommendations for improvements for her because she was absolutely perfect. If there was a way for me to rate her 100/10 I would. I cannot speak highly enough about her.

I have worked with Stephanie on both my son'e wedding (in 2010) and my daughter's (Apr 2016) and couldn't imagine either event without her! Because she is involved from day 1, she is able to make sure that all details run smoothly for both the rehearsal and the... Read More wedding/reception! She was the best go-to person if anyone had a question or issue (helping me be the Mother of the bride/groom and not having to worry). We have one more daughter to get married someday and there's no way I can imagine a wedding without Stephanie involved! You'll never regret having her help plan or just monitor the details - she is the best!

We hired Stephanie as a day of wedding coordinator and she was a tremendous help! She was very organized, on top of things, and professional. She coordinated all the vendors on the day of the wedding and ensured that things were running on time and in the order that they were... Read More supposed to. It was such a huge help to have her there to run things because then we and our guests were free to enjoy the day.

She took care of other details such as ensuring cards/gifts from guests made it up to our room, ushering guests into the ceremony and reception, and making sure the speeches and reception program ran on time and smoothly--it was very helpful to have there to take care of these details and anything else that came up. I highly recommend her--she will keep things organized and on track so you can enjoy your wedding!

We hired Stephanie as a day of coordinator 1 week before our wedding. She came highly recommended from our Photographer Kathleen Hertel. Stephanie was very easy to work with given the very short time frame. She worked up a timeline for all vendors and confirmed all delivery... Read More and set up times. She was very quick to respond to any emails, phone calls, and texts throughout the week. I wish we would've hired her sooner!!! She made everything so much easier. Having an extra person to call, email, schedule just help finalize last minute details leading up the the wedding. The day of the wedding she kept in touch with myself, bridesmaids, and MOB throughout the day to let us know updates about what was going on at the venue. Knowing what was going on as I was getting ready helped me relax and enjoy the getting ready process! Not to mention that there were rioters/protestors on every street corner in Baltimore the day of the wedding. I like to think that Stephanie kept them at a low roar until after our outdoor ceremony was over. She stayed till the very end of the reception to make sure everything ended up where it was suppose to, and all vendors received their correct envelopes with final payments and or Tips! Everything was perfect!

For most of us, the biggest problem with planning a wedding is that you're only sure of how to do it after it's already... Read More over, so I was getting overwhelmed with hoping I hadn't forgotten anything I didn't know I was forgetting. Stephanie was referred to us by my cousin, who had been married the previous year, and even though I lived outside of her usual location range, she was so accommodating with driving out to see us, visiting the venue, and always being accessible and immediately responsive via cell phone or email. She gave me packets full of all the questions and decisions I would need to answer and address and kept me on track with knowing exactly how prepared I actually was. On the day-of, she not only made sure that everyone (vendors and guests) was where they needed to be at any given time, but if she saw that any small oversights had been made (the florist forgot to transport something to the reception, for instance), she was quick not only to notice the problem, but fix it herself. She made sure the gifts were all loaded into the correct car before the end of the evening, she kept the timeline moving steadily throughout the day, she was in contact with all of my vendors, knew who was who on the team, made sure everyone was on the same page, and she kept and distributed the checks for me to make sure everyone was paid. I was able to be relaxed and enjoy my day because I knew that she was on top of any and all small problems that would arise. Her documents are well prepared enough to ensure that any problems would be kept to a minimum. She is also a very sweet person and a pleasure to talk with and be around. I couldn't recommend her services more highly!
