If you follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Google+, you know how passionately involved I am with my client's weddings. For me, being a part of a couple's/family's wedding day is truly an honor to be entrusted with a day which will be remembered for their entire life. Often times, I find myself going above and beyond my contract terms as I feel it's the little gestures that sometimes have the biggest impact. As you can imagine, this frustrates my husband as he sees how tirelessly I work and doing some things for free. The free part is what he doesn't understand. But I see it simply as trying to help other's.
Today, I was so blessed to have received the kindest most heart-warming client review. As I read it, the tears began to fall as it was a true testament to my hard work. Knowing I had made such an impact on the couple and their family was truly the most fulfilling feeling.
Many thanks to the entire Putterman family for choosing me as their wedding planner not once, but three times. It means more to me than they will ever know. Congratulations again to Lindsey & Drew!!

We have a large, close-knit extended family and we decided to work with Samantha after seeing her work with my two cousins. She did such a superb job of using her knowledge of 'what works' in the industry, at our venue, with our budget and even with our family while also paying close attention to what made my husband and I unique and displaying that - she didn't try to fit us into a mold. My mom and I were also drawn to her professional attitude - a rarity in the business. We worked with Samantha from almost day 1 and one of my favorite things about the process was how well she handled things I wanted to be VERY involved in as well as things I wanted limited involvement within. We had a clear decor vision and Samantha helped make our dreams come true. Both my husband and I still declare it to be "the best wedding we've ever been to" and that is due in very large part to Samantha and her incredible team. I would imagine wedding planners with her degree of experience would get uninterested at some point after putting together so many different weddings. Not Samantha. She took such a detailed interest in what we wanted and went above and beyond to make it happen. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, she took on an even bigger role, allowing my parents, my (now) husband and I to focus on the flurry of well-wishes coming in. And, we would hire her all over again just for the peace of mind she provided on the actual wedding day. My entire family, our entire wedding party, my husband and I were able to focus on enjoying ourselves and not a single one of us found the day to be anything but pure joy. I'd recommend just about any bride with just about any budget and just about any dream to Samantha and her team - you won't regret it!
