This was a waste of money for me. I wouldn't recommend this vendor if they were the only ones available. I struggle to give them any rating at all. I would NOT recommend them so please look elsewhere!!! They provided HORRIBLE services which pisses me off the more I think about it!

When we got engaged I knew that I had a lot on my plate and could not handle planning the wedding on my own. I was living in DC and planning a wedding in Atlanta. On top of that, I was completing my last year of law school and preparing to move to Atlanta and take the bar exam. When I interviewed planners I made my situation extremely clear and ultimately decided to go with a full service package with AEP. That was a huge mistake because we were not compatible…at all. I could go on a crazy rant about everything I did not like about this company but I will simply say that they have major issues with communication and they are extremely unprofessional. They were rarely proactive about submitting ideas and staying on top of the budget. Additionally, Sara-Jane was extremely defensive when my fiancé and I asked her to tailor her planning style to us. We tried to give them positive reinforcement when they did things right because they got it wrong so often. Of all the things that could have stressed me out during planning, working with AEP takes the cake. Sara-Jane did not attend ANY of our vendor meetings because she claimed that her children were sick so she sent her husband and/or her assistant. Sara-Jane did not attend our rehearsal OR wedding because she claimed her children were sick so her assistant Sarafina ran the wedding. We have no issues with Sarafina personally but I have an issue with paying principal planner prices for assistant planner services. On a positive note, Sara-Jane recommended one great venue and a great photographer. However, EVERY vendor that she recommended was way over budget which was extremely frustrating.

There were so many times when I felt like I didn’t actually have a planner and the only reason we stayed with them was because we paid a 50% nonrefundable deposit. My fiancé and I simply resigned to our fate, lowered our expectations and decided that we would be sure to warn other couples.

Terrible. I wouldn't recommend this company to my worst enemy. Sarah Jane is a lazy bitch. Complete waste of money

Where do I even start on reviewing who I can only describe as a godsend throughout the 3 year engagement? Sarah-Jane is a true professional. My fiancé and I met with her initially only 8 days after she had had a BABY, and she was already back to work helping jittery brides have the wedding of their dreams.

She held my hand for over 2 years as I constantly changed dates (she seamlessly rescheduled and re-coordinated ALL the other vendors on my behalf -- TWICE!) and details and ideas and things here and there. I'm sorry to say I was probably one of her more 'challenging' brides, but this wedding would have never come off without her expertise.

She constantly stayed in touch to make sure I was on track budget-wise and schedule-wise. My wedding was in a completely different state, and she took so much off my plate, as it would have been impossible for me to handle the details myself.

I get a little emotional just writing this review, because Sarah-Jane became not just another planner, but a friend as well. She and her team flawlessly navigated all the details the weeks leading up to the wedding, and I know there were hiccups she kept from me so that I could enjoy the last few weeks instead of dealing with more stress and worries.

The day of the wedding all I had to do was get dressed. She made sure everything else was indeed...perfect. I can't thank her team enough for handling with such grace and care the best day of my life! A special thanks for Sarafina as well, who was so much help on wedding day! She was a true pleasure, and so many guests commented how on top of everything she was.

I accidentally forgot my purse at the venue after the wedding, and Sarah-Jane made sure it got back to my family the next day. So, even after her 'job' was technically over, she was still working for me. Now, that's service! I would not hesitate to recommend her to any other brides out there. She is classy, professional, innovative, and a glorious person.

Don't believe the hype, All Events Perfect is the real deal! Truly selfless about going the extra mile and doing whatever it takes to make our day amazing. Every step of the way they made it stress free and made it their priority to make sure we were happy and just as we wanted! I know it is hard to please everyone but it is hard to find a team more committed to trying their best to make your day perfect!

This wedding planner does planning both in NJ and GA, but I believe most of her planning occurs in Atlanta. It's concerning that the Atlanta location is not listed so this review may not be seen by Atlanta brides looking for a planner. My final email to Sarah-Jane of AEP basically spells out my final experience. The planning process wasn't as bad as the wedding day execution, despite some similar challenges stated in a previous review by DianeF. Here's the email to AEP (edited and shortened version b/c of review space restrictions, it sums up the major things):

Hello Sarah-Jane,

My husband and I received your message. We were hesitant to reach out immediately after the wedding because we were trying to process much of the feedback we received from our wedding guests and from our personal experience of the wedding itself. Here are some of the following grievances:

- There were more than several guests who did not have an opportunity to eat or get any food. Many of the people waiting in line for food reported seeing you and your team sitting and eating before the guests had a chance to finish getting their food. We thought that was highly unprofessional and inappropriate. And the guests also felt the same way.

- My bridesmaids reported an altercation with Sarafina over the money that was being picked up off of the ground on me and Wale's behalf. Sarafina felt that it would be appropriate to collect her $40 from the gift money behind our backs as opposed to directly coming to us for the money. One of my bridesmaids had to collect the money from her and there was also a verbal altercation because of it. Highly unprofessional and inevitably a form of theft.

-Much of the feedback that we received about you and your team from the bridesmaids and guests (both Nigerian and Non-Nigerian) included the terms: "extremely rude", "unorganized", "unprofessional", and "incompetent". We were asked by several people if this was the first wedding that you had ever coordinated.

I can only say Heaven sent in regards to Sarah-Jane and the All Events Perfect team. They held my hand every step of the way and I had so many people ask for their information for their own weddings. The best way I could explain is it that I feel like I just showed up and got to be the bride and nothing else. I didn't flinch look at the time or worry about anything. It was just as I had envisioned and more. They made everything seamless.

All Events Perfect is a great wedding planning company!!! Sarah-Jane will make your dream wedding come true! I spoke with other wedding planners but I felt the most confident with Sarah and her team. She will do whatever she can to make your special day exactly what you want it to be. She has plenty of creative ideas, connections, suggestions and will honor any requests you may have. She goes out her way to make you happy! I enjoyed getting to know her and I'm so glad I chose AEP! I went into the whole process clueless. She was right there to answer any questions and help guide us through it all! She is a sweet person and you can't go wrong letting her plan your wedding or any other event! :) Cheers!

My husband and I recently celebrated our 2-month wedding anniversary – it seems like we just exchanging our wedding day vows. Our special day was truly extraordinary for both of us because we were able to enjoy each moment of the day thanks to Sarah-Jane and All Events Perfect! We contacted All Events Perfect after terminating a contract with another wedding coordinator approximately three months before our wedding date. Sarah-Jane immediately pulled up her sleeves and made a list of the most pressing items first and began quickly getting things done. I appreciated that she sent us a questionnaire about our style and provided us with proposed design board incorporating our wedding colors. In fact, she accomplished more in her first week than my previous vendor had in the previous six weeks! Through the weeks leading up to our wedding day, Sarah-Jane was extremely responsive and provided us with references for some of the most fabulous local vendors such as Faces of Virtue and Ringlet's Salon, both located in New Orleans. Sarah-Jane helped us bring our vision for our wedding day to a reality. She was patience but persistent in encouraging us to make the tough decisions on a timely basis. I know that Sarah-Jane accomplished a variety of tasks behind the scenes on our behalf but never revealed any obstacles - only solutions! She is definitely a calming presence on a hectic day and is able to stay cool under pressure (even when it stops raining and the bride wants to move the wedding back outside 45 minutes before the ceremony is scheduled to start. . .) I highly recommend Sarah-Jane and All Events Perfect for any bride that needs assistance transforming her vision into the day she always wanted. We can't thank Sarah-Jane enough!!
