I engaged Sara Franklin, owner of Social Scene, for my daughter's wedding as "day of" coordinator. It was the best decision I ever made!! Initially I debated spending additional money for this service since I have some personal & professional experience planning events, but I can honestly say not only is Sara worth every single penny, I could not have made it through the day without her and her incredible team! Future brides & mother of brides, do yourself a huge favor and hire Sara Franklin. She is professional, resourceful, personable, unflappable, responsive, accommodating and simply delightful to work with. Besides the invoice & timeline preparation, rehearsal & overall vendor coordination and finding me the Perfect linens I was seeking, Sara and her team; tied my church bows on the pews, placed poinsettia plants on alter, pinned boutonnieres, herded over 100 guests into buses & limos, hung custom wreaths & mirrors, set up luminaries, table decorations, cigar bar, amenity basket, fireplace candles, hung over 100 hand-painted ornaments on Christmas tree, and bustled my daughters gown. These are just some of the "day of" services provided as they really went above and beyond to help make my daughter's wedding ceremony and reception absolutely wonderful!

Sara Franklin and Social Scene MADE my wedding. Her attention to detail, patience, and amazing vendor contacts allowed me to enjoy the process without worrying about a thing. And then, on the big day, I could not have been more thrilled. Everything ran seemlessly and the design she helped us with at our venue was jaw-dropping gorgeous. I may throw another party just for the chance to work with Sara and Social Scene again!

As soon as my husband and I met with Sara we knew she would be perfect to be our wedding co-ordinator. From the beginning she really understood our vision. Throughout the entire planning process, Sara went above and beyond and truly delivered exceptional service. Her patience with my enormous family, attention to detail, and appreciation for all the hard work we put into our wedding really secured our feeling that we were so lucky she was a part of our wedding day. Sara was amazing to work with and helped us have the perfect wedding! Like my mom kept saying "I don't know what we would have done without her!".

I only wish I was allowed to give more than five stars! We worked with Jessica Lynn Mann from Social Scene for "day of" coordination. In the months leading up to the wedding, Jessica went completely above and beyond to ensure that our wedding went off without a hitch.

I cannot emphasize enough how many challenges our wedding presented- a disorganized bride and groom, complicated family dynamics, a large wedding party, a completely written-from-scratch ceremony, an outdoor venue, vendors and family members with strong opinions, and last minute changes to everything from seating to tents. Jessica handled everything with unbelievable grace, remaining calm and keeping me calm as well. Both my mother and mother-in-law thought she was fantastic. My husband and I don't know how the wedding could have come together without her. Everything was totally seamless. Hiring Jessica was the best decision ever.

Sara was the best wedding planner we could have imagined. She is very energetic and fun, and incredibly skilled at what she does. She has brilliant ideas when you ask for them, yet never pushes you to chose something that you don't want. She adapts to your style and your attitude and will assist you in allowing your wedding to reflect who you are as a couple. Sara was a huge help on our wedding weekend. She took care of all of the last minute coordinating so that I was completely relaxed and in the moment. My wedding day would never have been the same without her. I give her my highest recommendation.

Working with Sara was just fantastic. She is extremely well-organized; no detail went unmissed. I could relax on my wedding day because I knew that Sara and her team was taking care of everything. She was also very responsive to email and phone calls and was a very good hand holder when I was losing it (that tends to happen in the week before the wedding!). She also has a great sense of humor which I think is very important in a wedding planner and helped me and my husband reduce our anxiety for the big day.
