In the Spring of 2010, I contacted Tracy French of The French Connection to plan and coordinate the details of our September 24, 2011 wedding. From our first meeting, I was impressed with Tracy's organized working style and professionalism. I...
answered a series of preliminary questions about what I pictured, overall, for the wedding and that framework guided our first discussions. It was almost like an agenda for the first meeting which instilled in me the confidence that Tracy could get things done efficiently. My mom and I went home that afternoon and out of the three wedding consultants we met with, Tracy was our "hands-down" choice.
As a 24 year old, career advancement is my top priority. I wanted my wedding to be beautiful, but didn't want to spend endless hours devoting energy to selecting centerpieces and linens. I travel frequently, and I needed a wedding planner that I could trust to execute the details of my wedding, with my vision. Tracy was intuitive enough to know my style was "give me three options, and I will choose one of those." To this day, I am blown away with how it all came together, with what broad descriptions I gave them! Pretty sure all I said was "I want these two colors, I want it to be rustic." Tracy adhered to my "vision" but added special touches along the way and gave us something truly spectacular to behold. She nurtured my vision with her creativity and it grew into something I couldn't have been happier with. I remember seeing the centerpieces Tracy oversaw the design of and thought they were truly stunning--organic and original. It was like they were just for me, just for my day. To this day, she will never know how much I appreciate her guiding and fostering my vision to fruition. She gave our out of town guests an experience they are still complementing ME on.
I know Tracy has other clients, but our whole time working with her, it really felt like everything she did was "just for us, just for our day." She worked within the parameters of our budget, gave us a line item of where we were at at every meeting, and treated us with unparalleled care and attention. No question was too trivial or too often asked. She has tremendous patience!
I would absolutely recommend Tracy to any friend or colleague. Her work ethic, attentive disposition, expertise, and desire to please and create something "one of a kind" just for her clients make her the BEST wedding planner.
