I had the pleasure of working with Sandy on my recent wedding. I am a planner myself so it was hard for me to let go and put my vision and hard work into the hands of someone else. It was the right choice as Sandy was the perfect day-of coordinator. She was very thorough and made sure that all of my little details were perfectly setup. Her timeline and attention to myself and family was perfect and allowed me to really relax on the day of and enjoy the party and my guests, rather than worrying about the logistics and behind the scenes. What I love most about Sandy is her passion for what she does. I could tell how much she cared that my big day went off without a hitch and that is what is most important of all. Having someone there by your side and to help you with anything means a lot, and that was Sandy. I recommend any bride talk to her and see if it's a good fit, which I'm sure it will be!

Sandra was incredibly charming, patient, detailed, thorough, and a pleasure to interact with. During an important event where energy and emotions were running high, she was a soothing presence. I can not thank her enough for being such a wonderful person and for being a part of our wedding.

Anyone considering hiring Splendid Weddings coordinator/planner should definitely go for it. This was one of the best decisions I made during the whole process. Sandra is an expert you can trust with your wedding, and there will be too many things and not enough time to waste it with trial and error.

Sandra carried out the day of coordinating activities for our Jan 4th wedding, but she did so much more even prior to that day. She sat with my family and I well in advance to get a picture of what our dream wedding would be and she was amazing at making helpful and appropriate suggestions about anything we might have questions about: dresses, decor, vendors, logistics, budget. She really listened to what we had to say and worked within our constraints of money and time, always offering creative and flexible solutions to any issue that began to appear on the horizon.

Sandra went above and beyond in making everyone feel cared for and never lost her professional poise, even when inconveniences came up. Having her apply her wisdom and experience was absolutely indispensable. The day of the rehearsal and wedding, there were a million and one things that were thrown at Sandra and her staff, yet I never even saw as much as a blip on my radar. Sandra kept everyone informed of what would be done and when, she made sure the bridal party, family, and vendors were where they needed to be, and magically appeared whenever something was needed- like cleaning stains out of my dress. On that wedding day, there is so much to do and no one in your family should have to bear that and miss out on the experience of being with you.

Splendid Weddings and Events was a god-send to our family. Planning a wedding for the first time can be an overwhelming process, but from the moment we hired Sandra and her team, we could feel them take the weight off. I was blown away by Sandra's ability to truly listen to the details of the bride's vision and patiently offer suggestions as to how to make them happen within the budget. Sandra and her team invested not only their time, but their whole selves into our special day, and were really looking out for our best interests. I cannot imagine what our day would have been like without Splendid Weddings and will always be grateful. Sandra and her team's overall desire to make your wedding everything YOU ever dreamed of shows in every step of the journey with warmth and professionalism. Sandy is the best!

Our wedding had about 130 guests in attendance. Splendid Weddings is a very economical option as a day-of coordinator, which included Sandra and an assistant coordinator. Sandra helped us with vendor relations and fine tuning about a month prior to the wedding, as well as being present with her assistant our entire wedding day. Everything went famously and we were able to have a stress free wedding! It we very nice not to worry about the 'devil in the details'. She even had our venue do a surprise sundae out of our gelato bar (since we didn't do cake) - a very appreciated and memorable moment.

Sandra did an excellent job as our "day of" wedding coordinator (120 people). We appreciated her professionalism and supportive approach. Her bilingual and multicultural skills were a big plus as one half of our family only speaks Spanish while the other half only speaks English. Where I come from, weddings are quite different and relaxed, so she also helped me understand the U.S. way of celebrating weddings while making sure I could enjoy it from my perspective. We met a few weeks before the wedding to transfer all our vendors to her; she prepared our timeline and finalized a myriad of details. I felt confident we had a trooper by our side ready to tackle any situation. Sandra made everybody at the ceremony and reception feel comfortable and made sure all details went smoothly. We enjoyed the wedding and I did not have to worry about any details (I did not talk to vendors at all during the reception except to thank them at the end!). Now that I am planning our second wedding back in my home country, I wish she could fly there with us! We strongly recommend Sandra to help you plan your wedding.

Any bride stresses about their big day and all the planning that goes into it. Sandra was absolutely amazing! I couldn't say that enough. She was there from beginning to end making sure everything went smoothly. Not one thing went wrong on one of the biggest days of my life and its all in large part to Sandra. My day was absolutely amazing and her professionalism and attention to detail was astonishing! I could not thank her enough for everything that she has done! My wedding was a success and my family and friends can't stop talking about how wonderful everything was :)

Sandra was the planner for a wedding at my venue, The Arboretum Club, a couple months ago and she was phenomenal! I started working with her about 6 months before the wedding and she was truly amazing to work with the whole time. She was extremely organized and timely with everything. She and I kept in touch almost every week, which I found incredible because that means that she is constantly thinking about each of her weddings. I could really tell that she is passionate about her job and that she cares about each of her brides. Her creative eye is just AMAZING. The ideas she had for décor made our room look breathtaking (and that is an understatement). The way she paired the colors and matched the centerpieces just brought everything together beautifully. She also made this fabulous candy table for the wedding that she worked on for weeks. She was so well organized the whole time I worked with her and completely dedicated to the wedding. The day of the wedding she kept in close contact with me and our banquet manager to make sure things were running as planned. She was in the room the entire evening and never disappeared for a period of time. She truly put all of her energy in to making this wedding a huge success. It is not often that I get to work with a wedding planner like Sandra. She is very detail-oriented, organized, and just good at what she does. Not to mention, she is one of the sweetest people I have worked with in a long time. I hope I get to work with her again soon!

We had a small wedding with only 20 of us all togerher. I thoght I could handle everything myself boy was i wrong, I just didn't realize just how helpful it would be to have a day of coordinator! It was GREAT working with Ur even Ur planner, because We had NOTHING to worry about the day of our wedding. It was a great feeling being able to just relax all day and not worry if a vendor showed or if chairs are set up etc. Thank you so very much because our wedding was set up perfectly, without my groom and I having to worry about a thing!
