Tamika was phenomenal and an absolute blessing. She is fantastic to work with and has the sweetest personality.

I love that I hired such a detailed oriented planner because that is definitely not me. When I met with Sarah for our planning meeting she brought up so many things that I would have never even considered thinking about on the wedding day. She took care of the layout, timeline,...

If I needed anything I was able to text her and she would help or send me in the right direction I needed to go. She is defiantly a must have planner for your wedding.

Tamika Hope and her team were a godsend. Her "day-of" consulting package included a lot of pre-event coordinating. From the time I hired her, she handled all of the vendors, put up the decorations and let us know what to do when during the wedding. She even made sure we always... Read More had food and drinks.

Keep calm and marry on !!! Hire SWC Consultants!! Calm is what I felt during this special day. Sarah and her staff were awesome. They were very attentive to our needs and special request. Sarah, assured me that everything would turn out beautiful. I knew I wanted a coordinator... Read More but I also knew myself.. wanting to control every moment. When I relinquished the reins.. it was almost like a huge weight off my shoulders. I just knew that Sarah and her staff had it and after routine consultations she knew my vision and went with it.

I need to add that my husband said .. he knew you guys were good when he walked into the bridal room after the ceremony and saw you guys on your knees trying to wipe the dirt from the bottom of my train . Thank you all Guys sooo much.. We made the right decision !!!

Tamika and the SWC crew were amazing. I hired SWC as my day-of coordinators and my wedding day went off without a hitch!

SWC Consultants is a MUST for any Bride!

Reviewed on 5/21/2014 Laura M

I used SWC Consultants for Day-Of Coordination services. Sarah really did a great job in dealing with all of the details the day of the wedding and allowing me to relax a little more. I highly recommend her services to anyone and definitely recommend that any bride hire someone... Read More for Day-Of services at a minimum. The main piece of constructive criticism I have to offer is that Sarah's assistants could probably use a little training on being firmer with vendors and guests. At times they seemed a little timid, and I felt like I had to step in to make things happen. However, this probably could have been mitigated if I told them up front that I would be fine with them cracking the whip whenever necessary to ensure the timeline and other processes were followed. For example, there were a couple of times when I had to firmly let guests know that they needed to move along so the next item on the timeline could happen. Otherwise, we would have sat back and waited quite some time while inconsiderate guests dilly dallied. Also, for any Day-Of coordination, I'd recommend providing some kind of "facebook" of important guests to the coordinator to help with ceremony seating and corsages/boutonnieres in your absence. For example, my grandmother could not make it to my rehearsal and so the coordinator did not know who she was and, therefore, who should be given the final corsage or which mothers/grandmothers were supposed to receive specific kinds of corsages (i.e., wrist vs. pin-on). The quality of SWC Consultants' work really is 5-star, though. Besides the firmness, the other reason I gave 4-stars is purely superficial. In choosing vendors for your wedding, unfortunately, physical appearance can be very influential whether you're conscious of it or not. When it came time to choose a Day-Of Wedding Coordinator, I had narrowed it down to 2 coordinators. One looked very professional and presentable, and I was initially leaning toward that coordinator. However, SWC Consultants luckily immediately showed me how responsive they were so my gut told me to go with them. I say this mostly because I'd like to urge any future brides who may make initial judgments based on the appearance of SWC Consultants to give them a chance because they really are great at what they do and are worth every penny! Also, I think it's important that SWC Consultants understand that the growth of their client base could improve significantly with some changes to their employees' physical presentation like outfits, makeup, hair, etc. Clients will be more drawn to a vendor who looks very well put together and commands presence.

Sarah was a wonderful coordinator to work with. I used the Day Of Coordination Service. She made my vision for my wedding a reality. She was very professional; her communication, whether by phone or email was prompt. I couldn't have survived my wedding day without her. I got all...

She went above and beyond for day of coordination.

“A wedding isn’t just about that one day. It’s about the process and planning of it all before then too. It’s about bringing together everything you’ve worked so hard on and envisioned together and then seeing it unfold,” she says. “It’s a special day. You don’t get many more chances to do it like this. It should be exactly how you want it.” As a wedding planner with well over 100 weddings, Gallardo understands the constraints of budgets and wishes of a bride-to-be.
