Kind Words

Donna & Dennis Nguyen Petroleum Club Houstondennisdonna234bbOh where to begin? Samantha is a doll and she is AMAZING. When I met with her, I knew she was the one right away! She is so relatable, kind, and down to earth. Your wants and needs become her wants and needs as she plans your wedding side by side with you. You never feel like “just another bride.” When Samantha works with you, it’s like you’re her only bride because that’s how focused and attentive she is. And trust me, she is a busy gal!! We gave her our budget and she recommended vendors that fit our budget. And might I add, all her vendors were great as well. We hit a few speed bumps along the way, but Samantha helped smooth them over right away. I have recommended her to all my recently engaged friends. On the day of our wedding, everything was perfect-o! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.


Melina and OmarMelina & OmarThe Bell Tower on 34TH Street, Houston, TX   Since both my husband and I are physicians with very busy schedules, I knew that from the moment we got engaged we would need a top notch wedding planner…and that’s exactly what we got with Samantha! Not only is she incredibly personable but I also very much appreciated how detail oriented she was with EVERY part of my wedding. Throughout our one year engagement process, Samantha became more than our event coordinator, she became my friend and my confidant. Every step of the way, no matter how many bumps we encountered, she always reassured me that everything was going to work out… And it sure did! Samantha helped give me the wedding of my dreams! I also didn’t expect to get SO MANY great ideas from her! She has wonderful taste with decor and flowers and it really added a great touch to our wedding. During the rehearsal and wedding day my family was so impressed with not only her incredibly poised and sweet demeanor but also by her ability to run such a tight ship and make sure everything was in order! My wedding could not have been possible without her. I especially was grateful to have her on my wedding day because she was such an emotional support to me. For brides who are looking for the perfect wedding planner, look no further.



amanda_michael_1476eAmanda and Michael Rochman Chateau Polonez, Houston, TX Samantha was so very patient and attentive. She understood the style we wanted and helped us get there every step of the way. She has some great recommendations but is also very open to trying new vendors and helps out just the same. On the day of she is on top of the schedule but is perfect about only being visible when she needed to pop up and let you know something. She is very subtle but organized and really made our day perfect and many said our wedding was the best they’d ever been to, but that is in no small part to do with Samantha. She really helps make your dream wedding happen and is a pleasure to work with even when you are stressed to the max. I recommend her a thousand times over. Well worth every penny.






Melanie & Ryan Kitgawa Hotel Derek, Houston, TX I hired Samantha and the Soiréebliss team to help me with everything for my wedding and I have nothing but good things to say. Every vendor she suggested was amazing, she was so helpful in coming up with creative ideas to add personal touches to the wedding, she was very flexible with meeting times and was able to come to most vendor meetings to make sure everything went well! On the day of the wedding she made sure I didn’t have to think or worry about anything, it was a flawless day and I could not have asked for a better experience. I never thought I would need a planner but now looking back, I could have not done it without her, she made everything about the wedding better. Coming from someone who is very busy with work, getting a planner is the best decision I made and there would be no one I would recommend more than Samantha!


Lorena & Manuel Galindo St Pius V Catholic Church and The Gallery Houston My husband and I contracted Samantha for our recent May wedding here in Houston, Texas at River Oaks Baptist Church and the Petroleum Club. We had interviewed a number of potential wedding planners and once we met Samantha, we knew our search was over! From the start, we knew that she was excited about our vision and determined to make it happen. We worked with her for over 9 months meticulously planning every little detail…and i can tell you that preparation makes all the difference. Samantha was always incredibly enthusiastic and genuinely excited about planning, offering some amazing (yet budget conscious) ideas to help take the wedding to the next level. She was incredibly accessible, returning emails within minutes or hours! I always felt like i could reach her via phone too. As the big day approached, my husband and i were confident that Samantha had it all together. She was on top of all of our vendors, ensuring that everyone was on the same page. The timelines were perfect and everything went as planned; literally to the minute. We were so amazed. Her staff is top notch as well. I honestly don’t think our wedding could have been any more amazing than it was. Everything went smoothly and we didn’t have a single care in the world. I think what sets Samantha apart is her incredible organization skills, her ability to multitask, her creative eye, and her true passion for event planning. And her prices are quite reasonable too. Without hesitation we would hire her and her team again! She truly went above and beyond our expectations.


Megan & Chilobe Kalamno River Oaks Baptist Church Petroleum Club, Houston, TX Samantha was energetic, full of great ideas, and was very professional. She always gave me options to choose from and put me in contact with other professional and knowledgeable vendors. I would recommend her highly to anyone needing a wedding planner. Our wedding turned out great and many family/guests commented on how organized it was. One my wedding day I was very much at ease knowing that things were being taken care of by Sam.


Abby & Ben Pendroff St. Regis Hotel Samantha went above and beyond her responsibilities. She was available night or day and responded to the enormous amount of questions I had immediately. I would recommend her to anyone needing a wedding coordinator.


Laura & Iman Pourghead Ceremony and reception at the Petroleum Club Sam is an extremely professional individual with such a creative mind. Her attention to detail is impeccable. She was by far the best investment of my wedding. I never in a million years imagined that I could have such a perfect wedding and enjoy myself. My guest’s are still talking about it. I owe that and more to Sam. She also designed and created my invitations which were also amazing. I highly recommend her. I don’t know anyone who goes above and beyond the way she does.


Stephanie & Eric Jeffers Ceremony and reception at Four Seasons Dallas I interviewed a handful of coordinators, but Samantha was the only one I felt completely comfortable with. She was so easy to talk to and actually listened to what I wanted. Even under high pressure, she always remained calm, which in turn helped me remain calm. She always conducted herself in a professional manner and was extremely organized. She also ALWAYS called or emailed me back almost immediately, which says a lot because a lot of vendors are horrible at returning messages. She’s very creative and has so many cost saving ideas, which really helped bc weddings can get ridiculously expensive. Thank you Samantha for all of your help… I couldn’t imagine having put together such an amazing wedding without you!!!


Priscila & David Gross Tony’s Restaurant – ceremony & reception Samantha and her crew at Soiréebliss! were absolutely amazing! Everything ran so smoothly and my family and I were able to relax and have fun at the wedding without worrying about what we needed to do next. Samantha was so helpful during the entire wedding process. If I needed help with anything she always offered her assistance. I don’t know what I would have done without her!


Keitha and Patrick Westminster Methodist Church / Artista Restaurant Sam was great! We renewed our wedding vows July 11, 2008. I needed help with everything and she was very responsive to my needs. She helped me find a florist, photographer, shoes, hair, and make up. She also gave great suggestions for my vows. Not mention I waited to last minute to plan everything and she had all the details worked out in less than 2 weeks. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding planner or a renewal of vows planner.


Tom Short, Short Productions Uptown Run for Special Olympics, Dallas TX (2001-2006) Sam was awesome! I honestly do not know what I would have done without her. She was great to work with from the start, great email communication and very accommodating. Very detail-oriented, made sure everything was set up as I wanted, and I didn’t hear about any problems on the day-of. What can I say, simply AWESOME!


Diana & Ernie Alden Hotel, Houston, TX I can’t say enough good things about Samantha and soiréebliss! Since I work in the event industry I wasn’t sure I needed a wedding coordinator but from the minute I met Sam I knew I needed her as my wedding coordinator. Her attention to detail, professionalism and creativity is the best in the business. She went above and beyond to help me with some difficult decisions I had during the planning process. She is amazing and I highly recommend Sam and her team to ANYONE planning a wedding!


Paige & Dillian St. Regis Hotel, Cancun, Mexico Samantha Darr is extremely professional, creative, attentive, and organized. These are qualities that are extremely important when planning a wedding. Because of Samantha, we were able to sit back, relax, and really enjoy our wedding weekend in Mexico. This was Samantha’s first destination wedding in Cancun and although there were some bumps in the road, the end result was AMAZING! We could not have been more pleased. I highly recommend her if you want the wedding of your dreams to become a reality.


Janie and Edgar Crystal Ballroom, Houston, TX Samantha has been nothing but the best while planning my wedding. She was my confidant, my planner, my psychiatrist, my friend. She was very patient with any changes I made, she took perfect notes of our meetings and she constantly checked up on me. I know sometimes it seems like the money we spend on wedding is unnecessary but please please make this investment. The day of my wedding I had no worries I sat back and enjoyed every minute of it. Sam has a great eye for design, when I first saw my ballroom I cried because it was simply more than I thought possible on my budget. All in all this woman was my rockstar.
