WOW!! I cannot say enough about Jackie. She calls herself "month of" coordination- it's really more like "any time you need her" coordination! She is so knowledgeable about every facet of a wedding (even my Jewish wedding). I was married at Lake Lanier Islands Resort. I can certainly attest to her knowledge and comfortability with that location specifically. She calmed my nerves and helped my planning processing all along the way- even up to a year before my wedding. Her fee is so extremely reasonable for the services she provides. On the day of the wedding, I was able to enjoy every single second, because I knew Jackie and her assistant "had my back" and would not let anything slip by. I just love Jackie as a person and as a professional.

Jackie was fantastic and such a good value for the money! She was very responsive and ensured everything was organized with vendors and even printed out timelines for the bridal party since the timeline was different for the bridesmaids vs the groomsmen. Her assistant Janine was also excellent and made sure my hubby and I had drinks and food throughout the wedding. Also, Jackie brought her emergency kit which came in real handy as my bridesmaid accidentally ripped the bottom of her dress. You seriously can never be perfectly prepared, but Jackie is there to help you every step of the way! She also went the extra mile when I couldn't find my candy buffet items and was able to use her contacts at Lake Lanier and was able to get my items back the next day. She is reliable, professional and responsive. I highly recommend her!

Thanks to Jackie and her staff, my daughter the Bride, my daughter the Matron of Honor, and myself were able to fully enjoy all the festivities of the ceremony and the reception, and not miss a single moment. We did not have to worry about making certain that things and people were lined up and in place for the next event on the wedding agenda because Jackie was very thorough in her planning and chronicled every detail that my daughter wanted included -- nothing was missed!!! It was such a pleasure working with Jackie and having the assurance that not only would everything be seamless, but all of our guests would have a delightful evening. Thank you Jackie for helping me make certain my daughter had the wedding of her dreams!!!!

Brides. Mothers of Brides. You may not think you need any type of event planner but you need Jackie. The first day we talked she told me her job was to handle everything so I could enjoy the day with my daughter. She told me that if there were problems, I would not know about them until the next day. She was true to her word. Her attention to detail in so many areas kept us on schedule to get everything done before the wedding. I have never met anyone so willing and gracious to take on so many tasks. Anytime we did not know who to turn to or how to make it happen, Jackie handled it. She developed timelines for the service and reception and dealt with all vendors. She made sure everything was in place. She was flexible about times and places to meet. She knows what she is doing and is well respected by those in the industry. She earns her fee many times over. I recommend her most highly and without reservation. Quite simply, as I have told her many times, she is the best.

She jumped right in and hit the ground running. I didn't have to worry about a thing, a complete 180 of what I had just experienced! Would recommend her in a heartbeat!

She made a bride's planning that much easier, much more smooth. Her attention to detail, her knowledge, her organizational skills, are top notch. I was on the fence about a hiring a "day of" coordinator; one of the best decisions that I made and worth every cent!

Jackie was an absolute pleasure to work with. We added her services only 2 weeks before the wedding and you would have thought we had been working together for 6+ months prior to wedding. She was very on top of things and our wedding stayed on schedule and nothing was out of olace. Her services are very recommended and will continue to refer her for anyone who is having a wedding. Thank you again Jackie for everything!!

Her professionalism is top notch. As Mother of the Bride I highly recommend having Jackie by your side. You will just love her! Thanks so much Jackie.

Jackie was amazing to work with! She made my wedding planning process so much easier than I thought it could be! I was busy starting a new job and moving during the planning process and Jackie took all the stress away from me. She was the main contact person with my other vendors and was able to communicate with me via email during the work day. She was always able to answer any questions I had along the way! She even had so many templates and documents for me to use to make RSVP lists, goody bag inserts, photo lists, and much more! Jackie was very organized and always knew what was going on! She made the rehearsal a breeze and quick (it was hot!). All the wedding party complimented me on how smooth everything ran and appreciated the little "joke" and "laughs" Jackie provided along the way! I would definitely recommend Jackie to help on your special day!

Jackie Raez was invaluable to our family in the organizing of and troubleshooting on the day of our daughter's wedding. Each family is unique and the dynamics challenging when under pressure. Jackie helped to keep our planning process on track, managed difficult personalities and situations with ease, and helped in so many ways that it would be impossible to list them all. However, perhaps the finest quality Jackie possesses that even tops her incredible attention to detail is her compassionate heart which is wrapped in the most friendly and easy-going personality I have ever encountered.

Her services are an incredible value and more necessary than you might imagine at the beginning of your event planning process. She took the pressure off of us so that we might focus on friends and family... thank you so much , Jackie!

Jackie is absolutely the best you could ask for as an event coordinator! Our wedding went off without a hitch and I attribute it to Jackie's amazing ability to keep all parties informed, communicating with one another and keeping my daughter, the bride on an even keel and stress free. Whenever we had a question about anything, she would get back to us promptly, without delay. Jackie could charge 10 times her fee and still be worth the cost. Outstanding value with more than outstanding results! If I had to do it all over again I would rely on Jackie again with one change...I would ask her to begin working with us even earlier in the process. She is truly a jewel in the wedding planning arena!

I was recommended Jackie by Tiffany with Your Event Solutions as she had recently married herself! Jackie could easily bill that much herself due to the most magnificent customer service she provides but she continues to provide top notch service at a great price There was not a single moment where she was unreachable! All emails and phone calls were promptly returned during the planning process and she was integral during communications between vendors! If there was a problem that needed solving, she was on top of it! In fact, she even does a fantastic job helping ease family tensions during the planning process!Jackie is great no matter the location of your wedding. however, If you're getting married at Lake Lanier she is power house! She has been working with all the preferred vendors at Lanier for many years and can communicate with them prior to the wedding. We lost our table names the day of, she worked closely with DJ Tod (also amazing!) to work out a solution! It all worked out and had I not heard my parents discussing misplacing the table names I would never had known it had even happened! Bottom line- Book Jackie Raez w/ Smooth Tie the Knots! She's fun, friendly, bubbly and most of all gets the job done efficiently and for a bride she makes it stress free! She markets as day of coordinator but I honestly felt that I had someone there every step of the way. Unlimited communication was key to this! (Ashley Baber does not offer this For $1,800 you had limited communications unless you paid for her full package that could take up to $3,000 of your wedding budget.) Jackie goes out of her way to do extra work in order to give a seamless wedding! She gave a care kit for my maids and I day of, full of bobby pins, toothpaste, candy, snacks, etc anything you could think of! She even heard one of my bridesmaids lamenting that she had lost her lighter and bought her one!Jackie is a gem and if you use Jackie you will not be disappointed!

Jackie was amazing! She was so very helpful from the very beginning. We started planning about 14 months before the wedding and we secured Jackie around that time I believe. From there she always kept in touch whether it was just touching base or seeing how I was doing! She answers emails so quickly too, I sent her many with random questions and always got a quick response! When the time got closer we met face to face a few times and each time I always left feeling more confident than before, she really takes care of every angle and every person. She truly cares about you as a person and as 'Bride.' The Big Day went very smoothly thanks to Jackie! She brought a Bridal Emergency kit to the suite for us while we were getting ready as well.

Jackie was amazing! She was so very helpful from the very beginning. We started planning about 14 months before the wedding and we secured Jackie around that time I believe. From there she always kept in touch whether it was just touching base or seeing how I was doing! She answers emails so quickly too, I sent her many with random questions and always got a quick response! When the time got closer we met face to face a few times and each time I always left feeling more confident than before, she really takes care of every angle and every person. She truly cares about you as a person and as 'Bride.' The Big Day went very smoothly thanks to Jackie! She brought a Bridal Emergency kit to the suite for us while we were getting ready as well.

Jackie was great and easy to work with during our planning and on the actual wedding day! It was wonderful to have someone in charge not only of protocol and procedure but of the many details of a wedding ceremony! Her advice was invaluable as was her " emergency" kit! Jackie also added her personal touch to make the ceremony more beautiful with her decorative signs and arrangements! She was the MOB's go to " man"!

I am the Mother of the Bride and my daughter selected Jackie Raez from Tie the Knot as the Day of Coordinator. Both my daughter and I live out of town in two different states so it was important that we have an excellent day of coordinator. The wedding was at Emory University and the reception was at The Garden's of Great Oaks so there was a lot of separate vendors involved. The day of Coordinator is a misnomer because Jackie did so many things before the wedding that certainly weren't just connected to the wedding day. My daughter had a very clear vision of her Mediterranean wedding reception. She and I were very detailed in what we wanted and Jackie was perfect!!!! What made her excellent wasn't just her ideas to help us but her professionalism. What I wanted in a day of coordinator was someone who would look after the details on the wedding day what I got was someone who did it in the few weeks before.All communication was easy and open. Jackie always responded quickly and often took the initiative. She coordinated all our vendors really well. It was such a relief not to have to do that. But most important was everything was always put in writing from the very first meeting up into the morning of the wedding. She put in writing what each vendor, family member etc was to do and when to do it. There was no confusion . She decoreted our venue exactly how we wanted. When there are multiple vendors and two different sites involved that is very critical. Jackie's timeline for the wedding week-end was amazing in it's detail and not one thing was left off. We constantly revised it during the week and again at the rehearsal and on the day of the wedding. Jackie is wonderful, professional and also just a very nice person. Our wedding was flawless and Jackie had a big part in that. She has my highest recommendation.

Even though I was only a bridesmaid in this wedding, I still coordinated with Jackie for several weeks before the wedding, and to say that she is unbelievable, is an enormous understatement. Jackie is God's gift to weddings and brides anywhere, and I HIGHLY recommend her. She covered EVERY base, went out of her way to ensure that the bride, groom, bridesmaids, groomsmen, families, friends, vendors, and everyone else involved in the wedding was happy and where they needed to be on time. The wedding went off without a single problem, and a huge portion of that was due to Jackie's organization, coordination, efficiency, and clear experience in the world of weddings.

Kudos, and Thanks, Jackie!!! You're the best

I couldn't be happier with the services provided by Jackie Raez of Smooth Tie the Knots! Jackie was wonderful - she did so much more than I ever expected and went above and beyond in everything she did. She had a creative solution for anything that came up, and coordinated with all of the vendors I hired regularly until the big day. The timeline she created was extremely detailed, and she was able to work all of our feedback into the schedule so we got to have the perfect day we wanted. I can't think of enough good things to say about Jackie and Smooth Tie the Knots!!

Jackie was absolutely amazing to work with. She did a great job at keeping everyone informed, from all of our vendors to my energetic wedding party, everyone always knew what to do and when to do it. I really appreciated that she respected my controlling personality, and made feel comfortable enough to turn it over into her hands. She answered every silly little question I had and never made me feel like I was losing it. She organized everyone and made the event flow smoothly. Having someone like Jackie, to handle all of the things behind the scenes, made my wedding the best experience and very enjoyable. To this day we are still getting wedding guest telling us how amazing Jackie and her assistant were. Jackie truly cares about making sure your special day turns into the day you have always dreamed of!

Jackie was amazing! She truely made every little detail in my scatter brained mind come together. We booked her last minute, less than a month before the wedding, and it was like she was with us from the beginning. I thought I could handle it myself and didnt want to spend the money on the coordinator, but when I lost it last minute I knew I needed someone to keep it together so that I could enjoy my time.

You name it, Jackie has thought of it and had it. From a day of survival kit, to gift card box, to snacks and encouragement she thinks of every detail. When my hairdresser backed out two weeks before the wedding she was waiting with referrels. When I ended up in the hospital a week before she worked with me and for me and let me rest. She managed both of my crazy families and even helped get the little kids where they needed to be and where they didn't. Jackie was the best about making sure she met my opinions, yet made everyone else feel that their input was valued. She kept control and was very sweet and personable....and patient!

She really made our day come together in everyway and helped make our wedding perfect. I would recommend her to anyone for any type of wedding. She is truely professional, but so considerate. I loved my entire experience with her and give her an A++! Book Jackie, its the best decision you will make for your wedding. :)

Jackie is AMAZING! I was two weeks away from my wedding day when my day-of-coordinator (family friend) backed out. I found Jackie on wedding wire and emailed her right away. She was very responsive, emailing and texting me with questions and pricing. She swooped right in and had everything organized according to what I needed. This was nice since I am an “A-type” personality and like to be in control of everything. She made the transition of information easy in order to make sure I felt comfortable with her being our day-of-coordinator. She met with my fiancé and I to ask questions and contacted my vendors right away to introduce herself. I loved working with her and having her on my wedding team. She went above and beyond throughout the two weeks leading up to our wedding as well as during the rehearsal and wedding day. Her assistant was fantastic too! What an awesome duo and a great value. I really appreciate Jackie for making the travel to Atlanta to be our day of coordinator. Thank you for making our day so outstanding and making sure we stayed on-time the entire day.

Jackie is a lovely lady. She was very pleasant to work with.

Our wedding was beautiful. With the exception of a few things, there were no major disasters and none of the guests had any idea about some of the things going on behind the scenes.

The good stuff: the wedding party was ready on time, the photos taken before the wedding were timely and beautiful, the timeline that Jackie prepared was extremely helpful in accomplishing everything on time.

The frustrating stuff: Jackie's assistant, Janine, and I did not meet until the day of the wedding and she was a cause of stress for me and other members of the wedding: (1) When myself and the bridesmaids were finished with our pre-ceremony photos, Janine was given the task of closing the doors to the restaurant where the groom and groomsmen were waiting so there was no chance of the groom and I seeing each other. The doors to the restaurant were immediately across from the elevator doors, where me and the bridal party would be walking out from. We gave Janine 5 minutes to complete this task, which should have taken 2-3 minutes. After waiting 6-7 minutes, we all head down in the elevator. The elevator doors open and we see the restaurant doors are wide open and Janine is aimlessly walking around. Jackie jumped out of the elevator to quickly close the restaurant doors, so we could walk past without the guys seeing us. Crisis avoided. (2) Even though we had a rehearsal, with Jackie present, she and Janine could not remember which of the groomsmen were supposed to walk down various members of our family. Luckily, the groomsmen and the members of our family being ushered into the wedding remembered who they were paired up with and it went off without a hitch. (3) A couple that we're really close friends with have a 6 month only little girl that is a cutie-pie. The baby got a lot of attention because she was the only baby at the wedding, and she's so cute. At one point during the reception, I see Janine sitting with our friends at one of the tables holding our friends' baby....while she's supposed to be assisting with the coordination of our reception. I understand that we paid for Jackie to be our day-of director, but the fact that she brought an assistant to our fairly small wedding tells me that part of the cost was to pay the assistant.

The bad stuff: There was only one legitimately bad thing that happened, and perhaps there are several people to blame including myself. I did not end up with my or my bridesmaid bouquets after the wedding. I feel certain they were left on the estate table in the reception room and no one picked them up or saved them for us. When we went outside for the "send off", I asked either Jackie or Janine if I needed my bouquet and I was told "no". It was sort of a fake send off because we were staying at the hotel. We made a lap around the parking lot in our golf cart and came back to the hotel where everyone was waiting. Shortly thereafter, Jackie and Janine walk out of the hotel and waved as they walked to their cars. They didn't discuss anything else with us or ask to do a walk-through of the reception area so nothing was left behind...they just left. They had taken some things up to our honeymoon suite, and they had left some things with the front desk...we didn't know what stuff was in either location until the next day. And that's when we realized that my bouquet was gone. We have the groom's boutonniere because it was pinned to his jacket, and that's it. As I mentioned, maybe I should have gone back in the reception room...maybe Jackie and Janine should have done a final walk-thru...maybe the reception venue should have saved them for us. I don't know, but the bottom line is they're gone and all we have are pictures.

As I said before, our wedding was beautiful. Everything went as smooth as possible, and everyone had a great time. I hesitated writing these comments because Jackie is good at keeping things organized, and she's good at her job. If I had to do it over, I would have kept everything the same except I would have gone back into the reception room after our send-off to do a final walk-thru instead of trusting that someone else had already done it.

Smooth Tie-The-Knots - "Month-Of" Wedding Coordination responded with the following comments:

Thank you for your feedback. It is well appreciated. I understand some of your comments and frustrations and I look forward in chatting with you to address these concerns and provide you the explanations you deserve, explaining some behind the scenes challenges that were not disclosed to you at that time in order to ensure you walk down the aisle stress free. I have taken note of a couple of things that are related to the venue site, and will indicate those to my future brides. Restaurants inside a wedding facility have their policies to keep their business running, while they are accomodating most of the time, there will be times that due, to their intensity of business at peak times, we as directors have to go the extra step for our brides. I will be more than happy to explain the details either by phone or email and more than happy to go over this review with any of prospective brides who read this review. I do appreciate the feedback and will be addressing some good insight you have provided. I am glad that your wedding day came out beautiful! That is my goal! Thank you again for your feedback. It was a great pleasure to direct your wedding!

Jackie was our day-of-director and made me feel completely at ease with the process. She created timelines, contacted members of our wedding party and vendors, and reminded me of little things that I otherwise wouldn't have thought of. She was quick to respond to emails, and flexible with being able to meet in person. I did not want to pay for the cost of a wedding planner, but the value that Jackie as a DOD provided for the low cost was too good to pass up. I am very glad that Jackie was our DOD - she helped our wedding go off without a hitch, and as a bonus is a lovely person to work with!

Jackie is an absolute dream! She made every part of planning our wedding easy. Her responsiveness was quite impressive; most ideas/thoughts/concerns would pop into my head later in the evening yet she always replied to my emails that same night. Needless to say our wedding day was stress-free, seamless and completely enjoyable! She was able to keep me calm while keeping everyone else in the know of where to be and when. Jackie Raez is a godsend! Read less

Jackie is incredibly awesome! High energy, fast thinker, terrific planner...extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the wedding...there are so many details yet she has a talent for keeping everyone calm, focused and practical in the process. Jackie manages her time wisely and gets down to brass tacks without losing focus. Her memory for what the bride and groom specifically want is beyond belief!

Jackie was so helpful in all the steps leading up to my wedding. She helped me find any and every vendor I needed and always responded quickly to any questions I had. My rehearsal was a little bit crazy, but that is because the preacher was late (had a flat tire), the guitarist (who was doing the majority of our music) showed up at the wrong place, and we had 20 attendants total. Everything finally got worked out, and I couldn't have asked for the wedding day to have gone any better.
Thanks, Jackie!
