Sarah Trotter at Lasting impression is great! We changed our mind on what type of chair covers and the number of them, a few times, and she was super flexible. She by far had the best price on the chair covers we wanted. She came to the venue and set them up for us. they looked absolutely fantastic and really dressed the room up! We chose to return them ourselves so we wouldn't have to pay a take down/disassemble return fee. The return was super easy and convenient! (Note the charge for them to take them down and pick them up was not unreasonable, we were just on a really tight budget) :-)

WOW...where do I begin. Words cant even express how thankful I am that we hired Sarah from Lasting Impressions Weddings to help plan and coordinate our whole wedding from start to finish. From day 1 she was so great. We immediately clicked. She is not only SO talented and passionate at what she does but she is also so fun and it was great to get to know her and i already miss talking to her on a weekly basis (and its only been a week). She helped guide us through the whole planning process and kept us on track with the timeline and budget, even during those times when i wanted to go over our budget. She exceeded all expectations we had for our wedding. My mom and I would have been lost with out her. She was able to take our ideas and run with them and point us in the right direction with the best vendors to use. The entire planning process was stress free and very enjoyable. On the day of the wedding we were able to enjoy the whole day and not worry about a SINGLE thing. She had everything under control and everything was FLAWLESS. When my husband and I walked into our reception we were blown away and all of our expectations were exceeded. I was in tears with how everything turned out. She turned all of our wedding dreams into a reality and we could not be more grateful to have had her by our side tthrough the entire procces and what she did for us. Now I forever get to remember through our amazing photos of how gorgeous and perfect every detail was because of you...THANK YOU SARAH. I could keep going and going but she is truly the BEST and I would highly recommend her to any bride!

Sarah Trotter is everything you want in a wedding planner. I had a specific vision for my wedding and Sarah made it become a reality. Her energy and personality made the tedious wedding planning process truly enjoyable. She is detail oriented and a careful listener. She is incredibly responsive to any question or need you have, even if I have asked the question two or three times. :) Sarah is very “in the know” when it comes to all aspects of a wedding and she accurately provides you with what works and what doesn’t. I would run several ideas her way and always appreciated her honesty and knowledgeable opinion.

I was so grateful to have Sarah there on the day of my wedding. She kept all the family and wedding party on time, calm, and organized. She works closely with each vendor to make ensure every details runs smoothly. My in-laws were in awe of Sarah; they couldn’t get over how helpful, efficient, and friendly Sarah was on the wedding weekend. Sarah is worth every penny. I am so grateful for Sarah Trotter with Lasting Impressions.

I hired Sarah to be our day-of coordinator and I'm so glad I did. I don't know how people pull off weddings without her help. She saved me, and my parents, so much stress the day of our wedding and we were all able to enjoy it worry-free. Even though she was just our day-of coordinator, I asked her many questions via email leading up to the day. She was very responsive and I loved that if she couldn't get back to me right away she would let me know when she could.

She did everything that I didn't want to do the day before and the day of our wedding. She organized and led the rehearsal (indoor AND outdoor scenarios), she picked up and brought food to us, made sure everything was taken care of with our vendors, set up a perfect timeline that everyone followed, kept everyone calm, brought all of our gifts/cards back to our hotel room so they were there when we got back, and stayed until the very end of the night to clean everything up.

I hear from a lot of parents of brides that they wish they would've gotten a day-of planner to help, as they end up taking on a lot of those jobs. For my parents sake and for mine, I am so glad we hired Sarah at Lasting Impressions. She was worth every penny and more!

As someone who plans and executes events for a living, I am admittedly a tough cookie to please. And I can honestly say that Sarah and Lasting Impressions exceeded my expectations. If you are looking for full service, no questions asked, there to help with anything and everything kind of wedding planner, Sarah is your girl. And she'll do it all with a smile on her face. As the first in our families to get married, my fiance and I knew we needed help (plus, he needed someone to help keep me calm :)). I loved that Sarah did it all for one flat rate - because I knew I would need some hand holding along the way! "Saint Sarah" as my dad nicknamed her, was there to answer any and every question. As a self-proclaimed control freak, it really is nothing short of a miracle (and a HUGE testament to Sarah), that I was fully able to sit back, relax and enjoy my big day without worrying for ONE MINUTE that everything was taken care of in her hands. I'm not kidding you - not one minute did I stress, that's how amazing she is. And when I walked into my reception and cried because it was everything I ever dreamed of and more...I just felt so lucky to have her by my side to make my wedding dreams a reality. Worth every last penny - I miss seeing her name in my inbox and can't wait to refer her to every bride I know!!

I would highly recommend Sarah Trotter to future brides looking for their event to be beautiful, organized and stress free. I was the Mother of the Bride and I work in the wedding business. I have never met such a fantastic wedding planner. Her attention to detail, calm demeanor and caring attitude made for such a perfect day. Until you plan a wedding there is no way of knowing the amount of detail/work involved. Add to that my daughter lives in California so we had the added challenge of planning a long distance event. Thank you Sarah for all that you did to make my daughter's wedding day so AMAZING!

I live in Los Angeles and was planning my wedding in Minneapolis, so I had no choice but to put all my trust in Sarah. Beyond a doubt, that was the best decision I have ever made.

Before meeting with Sarah, I was nervous and extremely overwhelmed with the whole wedding planning process- picking linens, chair covers, table top décor, finding the perfect band, dealing with countless vendors etc etc. The list seemed to never end!! After meeting with Sarah, it was like a huge weight had been lifted off of my shoulders.

Every detail- from distributing welcome bags to different hotels, to what perfect color the table cloths should be, to making sure I had champagne and lunch while my girls and I got ready, to bringing our dog back to the hotel after the ceremony- she did everything! And she did it with such grace, if there ever was a problem on the day- I certainly never knew it.

Truly, I feel like I could write a novel about how thankful I am for Sarah- so I'll just say this:
Weddings are a huge event. The biggest of your life. There are so many aggravating details and deadlines that many brides are just glad when the planning and the stress of the day is over.

Well, thank you Sarah, because ALL my memories are of how absolutely lush and gorgeous everything was, how happy and relaxed I felt, how handsome my husband looked, and how I never wanted it to end.

Thank you Sarah, for letting our wedding be about love; because you took care of the rest.

Sarah worked with my husband and I, planning our August 23, 2013 wedding in about 8 months. She kept us on track on our timeline, helped us choose vendors, came to vendor meetings with us, and in general, helped coordinate the million big and small things going on. We knew that Sarah would be on vacation for our wedding day, but her team (Andrea and Kate) did an amazing job with day of coordination. It's a testament to Sarah's business that she was able to be away and have her team flawlessly run a wedding. My husband and I felt completely relaxed, happy, and full of love all day. It was the best day of our lives, and we will always be thankful to Sarah for making it possible.
