I am still reeling from what was the most perfect, happiest day of our lives. This is all thanks to Blair and her impressive work. We hired Blair as a partial planner, where she had a few vendor areas she covered as well as all the timeline planning and vendor coordination. I could not have been happier with everything she did for our wedding. Highlights:
- She organized the vendors seamlessly. From my vantage point, everyone arrived on time to unload, had all the right pieces and parts with them, and set up their areas flawlessly. I never heard a word from a single vendor about any issues--so either there were none, or she handled them effortlessly.
- If I needed Blair, she was there. There was never a moment where I thought or asked, "where's Blair??"
- She was my rock when coming up with and executing the ceremony rain plan. The ceremony space looked stunning, and while some things could not be translated with the change in location, everything that mattered was exquisite. Most guests never even realized it was a backup!
- Every recommendation she provided was a hit: the tablecloths, the entertainment, the entire wedding timeline. One thing I especially appreciated was how Blair provided recommendations that added cohesion to the room. Since she was the common thread that knew the decor, the rentals, the favors, etc., she then looked at (for example) what lighting was needed to enhance the space.
- Blair gave it her all. There is no doubt how seriously she takes your job, and it became most apparent at the wedding. In the words of my mom, "Blair put her heart and soul into everything she did." Whether she was rushing to find needle and thread for my groom's popped tuxedo button, or eagle-eyeing the room to make sure everything was as it should be, her dedication was astounding.

Simply PERFECTION. I couldn't possibly have better things to say about working with Jen Stiebel and her truly incredible SoCo team. From start to finish, Jen was unbelievably attentive and organized and blew all of our expectations. Jen was a loyal listener, trusted confidant, and always had our best interest in mind. We thoroughly enjoyed our planning process all because of Jen and could not recommend her more highly! Although we initially set out to find a talented planner to help design our dream wedding, we ended up with a lifelong friend that has an unmatched gift for creating truly magical and stunning visions. Jen and her team are dedicated to making your dreams come true and I cannot possibly imagine our wedding now without having such a visionary by my side.

In addition to her incredible planning and aesthetic taste, Jen also alleviated all wedding stress and worries with her comforting words and warm personality. On our wedding day, I knew I had absolutely nothing to stress about because Jen and her team were totally prepared. Every little detail, every step of the way. I couldn't have asked for a better planner, and am so grateful that we picked Jen to help us throughout our wedding planning (Jen also fully planned our 3 day wedding weekend -six events- for 300 people!)

I would recommend Jen and her team to absolutely anyone. You are in the best hands in the industry with SoCo Events and should feel lucky to have found such a wonderful group of women.

SoCo is the best around! The planners are incredible and so easy to work with. My planner was at my house 3 nights before the wedding making programs and eating dinner with my family- they truly become your right hand person for everything. I can't say enough good things about them. The event was incredible and went so smoothly, and they are so great at handling issues that come up throughout the planning process and make the day go wonderfully! I don't know what I would do without them!

We worked with Claire and I cannot say enough wonderful things about her!! I was in England while planning my event and she was responsive to emails and even phone calls, despite the time difference. And on the day-of she was AMAZING!! We had a lot of set up that she transported and handled beautifully. And any time I needed any thing during the event she was right there, calm and ready to help. She is truly fantastic as a professional and a wonderful person to work with as well. I would definitely recommend her!

Early in the wedding planning process, I wasn’t sold on hiring a coordinator. Meeting with vendors seemed easy, and my fiancé and I were able to decide on a wonderful venue, photographer, florist, and DJ. However, a couple months into planning, we attended an ENGAGED magazine event. It was at that moment I became overwhelmed by all the small details that add up quickly (both in time and money). Luckily, at the event we met Bridget! In our conversation, we discovered her wedding reception was also at our venue--seemed like perfect fit! And, the SoCo ‘month of planning’ package is reasonably priced compared to other planners. However, ‘month of’ is a loose term because Bridget was super responsive to all my emails and questions in the months leading up to the special day.
Bridget was incredibly helpful with coordinating all the vendors, creating the day-of timeline, designing the favors, packing/delivering the welcome bags, running the rehearsal, and day-of support---wow!! I was so thankful she came with us for our final venue walk-through. She asked questions I didn’t know to ask, and had everything under control. And, the week of the wedding--without her I would have been completely frazzled and stressed. She did all the errands and running around! On our wedding day, if there were any problems or issues, I didn’t know about them. Because of Bridget, we were able to enjoy every moment of our special day. Even my parents (including my father who had very little ‘wedding’ opinions) were completely impressed by her support--truly invaluable. Honestly, I can’t imagine the day without her.

Our wedding planner, Bridget, was fabulous! She helped make our wedding flawless from beginning to end. She is extremely efficient and organized, and communicated to us in a very timely manner. Bridget kept all the details in order and she showed me creative options for decorating and personal touches for the guests that I never would have considered. She helped design our wedding bags, favors, and even our invitations. Her creativity and eye for design turned my wedding into an elegant masterpiece. Thank you Bridget!

The day I chose SoCo events for my day-of planning, I felt like a huge weight had been lifted off of my shoulders. Nicole was everything I was looking for in a wedding planner! She was very organized, professional, and excited to be a part of my big day. I knew I would be able to enjoy my wedding day without having to worry about anything.

Two months out from the wedding, I was so grateful to have Nicole. She was very responsive to my emails and she scheduled phone calls and meetings so we could go into more detail with the wedding planning. Nicole was in constant communication with the on-site wedding coordinator as well as my other vendors.

The day of the wedding was surreal and I was able to relax and thoroughly enjoy it because of Nicole. She arrived early with Jen to put together my macaroon wedding favors and they came up to the bridal suite often to check on the bridal party. My parents were very impressed with how great a job she did and how attentive she was to me and my husband at the reception.

The whole day was just magical. I have received so many compliments from guests on how beautiful the wedding was and how much they enjoyed themselves. I highly recommend SoCo events to any bride and groom. My sister has already decided she will be using them for her wedding!

I interviewed several wedding planners. Jen was by far the best fit for me. She is the classiest most creative wedding planner in D.C. In a couple of years I would not be able to afford her. She is so talented, has incredible relationships with other vendors, knows how to navigate any situation with friends, family, and other stresses that may pop up throughout the planning of a wedding. She has also become a great friend. I would recommend her to my best friends and my sisters....I already have!

Jen and Nicole are amazing. I hired them for month of planning and was stress free leading up to the wedding. They were both very attentive and detail oriented. I only wish I could have worked with them from the get go as they have great unique ideas and are really fun too! The day of the wedding was flawless and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out.

We used SoCo events (Bridget was our planner) for our September 2011 wedding. It was the best decision we made! We opted for their "day of service" in which SoCo comes in 6 weeks before the wedding and takes everything over. It was such a comfort to know that SoCo had every detail under control and that my husband and I could enjoy our wedding day without a single worry! I would recommend SoCo to anyone who is a planning a wedding.
