Reagan was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! From our first meeting with her, she was professional and attentive. She worked well with us and made sure to keep us the focus despite having an overbearing family member at the meeting who found every opportunity to talk about how SHE thought things should go. Reagan was very personable and clearly knows her craft. We knew from that first meeting that we HAD to work with her. Her cupcakes were amazing which also didn't hurt.

During our walk through 30 days prior to our wedding taking place, Reagan reassured me that things would go well and that the nervousness I was feeling (from planning a wedding in DC from Kansas) was normal, but totally not necessary. She was right! Everything went exceptionally well! From beginning to the end Reagan did an amazing job. She took care of all the little details that we as the bride and groom just didn't have time to be concerned with. She was the ONLY person who brought us water and snacks during our photographs being taken (which by the way took place in about 90 degree weather!). She coordinated with the DJ and the caterer to make sure tasks were not only completed, but completed correctly and in a timely manner. From every detail of the ceremony and reception, Reagan made our day worth ALL of the stress that a bride and groom will undoubtedly go through during the planning stages.

Her bouquets were so beautiful that I took mine with me the following day all the way to Hawaii and seriously considered bringing it back home with us a week later...The fact that the flowers had withered by that point didn't compare to the beautiful way it was put together. And her cake.....OMG what an amazing cake! I couldn't have imagined a more elaborate and extraordinary cake.

There isn't one thing that I can say in terms of needing to improve. Reagan is simply AMAZING at what she does. If you are a bride in the DC area, she's the one you need to know!

Regan was great. From the first time we n=met with her we knew her cake was going to be a hit!!!! For our initial meeting she brought a few different flavors and they were all amazing. She was very organized and has straight to the point answers. After we made our final decision we just sat back and let her work her magic we picked out a design we liked and she copied it to a tee. She was a pleasure to work with and we hope we can use her in the future for other cake needs. All of our left over cake was taken to work and everyone raved at how good it was even after being afew days old. I would recommend Sweetsand Soirees to anyone I meet hands down the best cake we have ever had!!

Reagan,

From the attentive service you provided leading up to the wedding, and to the wonderful cake you made for our wedding, I couldn't have asked for anything else. The cake looked EXACTLY like what we talked about, and it tasted wonderful! It has been over a month since our wedding, and guests are still telling me how much they loved your cake. There are so many personal touches that you plan for a wedding and your guests may never notice, but the cake was definitely one part of our big day that everyone remembers as being a big hit. Thank you so much!!!

Raegan was amazing! She really helped me pull my wedding together. We had a package that included her as our cake baker, flower arranger, and for day-of-coordination. The day-of coordination was so much more. She answered all my questions and helped me with the planning of the ceremony and reception as well as provided really great vendor suggestions, which were always well priced. She did so much more as a coordinator than what was included in our package. The flowers she did were exactly what we asked for and were beautiful! The best part though, was the cake. My husband and I don't really like cake that much, but opted to go with cupcakes so we could have carrot cake. She also made us vanilla cupcakes with a buttercream frosting. Everyone was RAVING about them at the reception and I still am hearing about them today when anyone talks about our wedding. I cannot reccomend her enough!

As a very relaxed bride, Raegan was the perfect fit for me. She knew what needed to be accomplished and when and how best to get it done. After putting her through confusion about flowers, etc, she came through perfectly on the day of the wedding. I was seriously impressed that she followed my very vague wishes. My flowers were gorgeous and exactly what I knew I wanted, yet had a terrible time relaying the message, or so I thought! And the cake..yumm! It was simple, delicious, and met my expectation as a bride. My family and I adored having her with us before and during this special day. I highly recommend Sweets and Soires for your big day :) Thanks Raegan!

I've been working with Raegan for about a year before my wedding. I found her online when I was looking for cakes. After meeting her, I knew she was the perfect fit for my needs. She always answers calls or responds back immediately; she really makes you feel like you're the only bride she's working with (even thought she's busy throughout the year). One the day of my wedding, I was stress free! I was soooo impressed by everything: the cake, the decor, our bouquets, and her professionalism throughout the entire event...everything was dream come true thanks to Raegan and her crew!

She always answers calls or responds back immediately; she really makes you feel like you're the only bride she's working with (even thought she's busy throughout the year). One the day of my wedding, I was stress free! I was soooo impressed by everything: the cake, the decor, our bouquets, and her professionalism throughout the entire event...everything was dream come true thanks to Raegan and her crew! Read less

Raegan and her assistant were awesome to work with.

Raegan helped me every step of the way, from finding and locking in vendors to last minute problems. Being very picky about what I want and not willing to spend a lot of money to get it, Raegan went out of her way to help me with both.

The wedding this past weekend (May 31, 2009) had only 4 mini disasters that I can think of. Of those disasters that Raegan could help me fix, she did everything she could so I wouldn't have to waste my time worrying/stressing about it. Having Raegan there on my wedding day ensured that I stayed cool, calm, and collected. I enjoyed every minute of my wedding.

As for the reception, Raegan and her assistant fixed the plates of my husband and I at the reception so that we could actually eat our food. After we ate, Raegan kept the party running smoothly as she kept the timeline of events going while my husband and I enjoyed ourselves on the dance floor with our guests!

And the cake was absolutely amazing. Raegan was able to give me the design that I wanted on my cake and even make vegan cupcakes for my parents. :)

Thank you!

I had the pleasure of meeting Raegan almost a year ago this month. I was immediately drawn to her wonderful personality, her knowledge and her willingness to offer her assistance with every aspect of the wedding planning process. She was always available by phone, email and in person. Throughout this year of planning Sweet and Soirees provided excellent service and support. Her service was all inclusive, from decorating the church to the reception site, to preparing the cakes, to providing timelines. Reagan executed a flawless rehearsal, wedding and reception. From the cakes (beautiful & tasty), to the decorations, the flowers, etc., she provided it all...I had so very little to worry about and when I did she was a claming force....I have nothing but praises for Sweets and Soirees!!

Raegan of Sweets and Soirees did a wonderful job on our wedding cake. Out of all of the Richmond bakers, we selected her because of her price, portfolio, and the deliciousness of her sample cakes. I am so happy we decided to go with her. We were married in Charlottesville, and she delivered the cake to our location for a very reasonable fee. I just wish I could have seen her that day to tell her "thank you."

We were very happy with the result of our cake. It tasted AMAZING, and I can't wait until our first anniversary so we can eat it again. I may have to contact Raegan before that, however, because I'm worried I can't wait that long to try that delicious cake again!

She guided me along the way and always came up with great ideas. She saw my vision and helped me make it happen. Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and I have her to thank for that!

I HIGHLY recommend this vendor. Raegan is awesome. She hung with me through SEVERAL changes of mind about the design of our cake. In the end when I became flustered and decided to leave it up to her, by just giving her our wedding colors and the theme she came up with the perfect design that matched our decor to a T. Not only did she do this, but because she is a planner she also calmed my nerves and counseled me when things were not working out with the planner that I hired. And our cake was the most delicious cake that I have ever tasted!! I can't wait to thaw out our top layer. We won our cake in a contest, and paid a little more to upgrade it, however I would have easily paid full price for this cake if I had to do it again. HIRE THIS VENDOR!!!

I had the great pleasure to sample a cake from Sweets and Soirees prior to hiring Reagan to make my wedding cake. The cake was the most heavenly and scrumptious desert that I had ever had. I knew instantly that I wanted her to bake my cake. There was one problem. Sweets and Soirees is located in Richmond, VA and I was getting married two hours away in Upper Marlboro, MD. So I mustard up the nerve to asked Reagan if she would make my cake. She agree! I was extremely pleased. Reagan was very accessible to me inspite of the distance. And she was able to keep the price of my wedding cake at an affordable price for us. After my wedding, my sister called me and asked if I had any cake left. She stated that she had woke up at 3:00 am craving the cake. Unfortunately, there was no cake left. But I told her she needed to visit Sweets and Soirees herself since she lives in Richmond, VA. I suggest that anyone reading this review do the same. Reagan's cakes are DIVINE!

Thank you, Reagan. You definitely made my wedding day sweeter.

Sincerely,
C. Crawford-Williams, WDC

I would like to start off by saying that I am a very detail oriented, Type A personality, “gotta be my way” person. I made several changes to my wedding before I contacted Sweets & Soirees. I changed my wedding venue from Jamaica to VA and then changed the date (due to the location change). I had everything documented and in order...next on my list was to hire someone to do my cake. My strategy was interviews.

I met with Raegan Gibson, owner of Sweets & Soirees for a cake tasting. She immediately impressed me with her professionalism and organization (customer service is top priority for me) I knew I was going to sign a contract with her as soon as I tried a sample cup cake....and I don’t have a sweet tooth. I immediately decided to go with Sweets and Soirees to design my wedding cake. Another, task marked complete on my list.

I learned that Sweets and Soirees was a full event planning service after I consulted with Raegan a few times regarding cake style, design, etc. The next task that I had to fill was day of coordination and rehearsal coordination. It didn’t take long for me to choose Sweets & Soirees for this service either. So that was another item that I marked “complete” on my "planned list. I felt that I had everything under control. However, the closer the date approached the more behind I began to fall with my tasks (that were “planned”). So I reached out to Raegan for more services... RSVP service and planning.

I felt like I had a clone. I knew that she would be professional and handle my issues with top priority. The turn around time for various tasks was quick! Procrastination is NOT in her vocabulary. Raegan went above and beyond to ensure my wedding day was perfect. Most of all she prevented me from turning into a BRIDEZILLA and she was there to mediate the "almost BRIDEZILLA" moments.

So if you want to handle less, minimize stress, and not turn into a mess…Select Sweets & Soirees to plan your next event!!

I am so happy we were fortunate enough to find Sweets and Soiree's for our wedding. Raegan made the most beautiful and delicious wedding cake we could have ever imagined. Everyone complimented the moist texture of the cake and the amazingly fragrant and fresh taste of the coconut and pineapple. She worked hard to give us exactly what we wanted and expected from the first tasting to the delivery and set up. All for less than all the other bakeries in Richmond! I would recommend Sweets and Soiree's to anyone!

This vendor was a full-service planner, in every sense of the word. She attended a bridal show with me to get ideas for my flowers, centerpieces and color schemes. She is very creative and was able to put together a lovely color scheme and decoration idea once I decided what I wanted. She found the most perfect venue for me in Miami, Florida, where the wedding was held, even though she was working from Richmond, Virginia. She was always available by phone or email when I had questions as I was meeting with the various vendors we selected. She even traveled to Miami with me a full week before the wedding to help with the last-minute details. She gets a five-star recommendation for her services with my wedding.
