Christine from Tying the Knot was the planner for my daughter's wedding. I wasn't sure if I should spend the money for a planner, but it was the best decision I made. Every vendor Christine referred us to was the right fit for our price range and venue. She saved us time and money. She helped us stay within our budget and handled every contract and vendor. The wedding went perfectly and the best part was that I got to be at my daughter's wedding and enjoy it.

Having Tying the Knot apart of our wedding really put our minds at ease! Brooke was fantastic, she was always available and really organized. Brooke was personable and took the time to make sure our wedding was perfect! She got to know us and saw the vision we wanted for our wedding. I would recommend her to anyone as a great asset to make sure everything goes according to plan!

We worked with Brooke from Tying The Knot and she was exceptional! I never could have managed planning my wedding and working full time without her. She kept me on track, sent me reminders, and made excellent recommendations. I could ask her anything and she always had the answer- it was like having your own personal wedding Google! I said throughout the process and still feel the same way- of anything we spent money on, Tying the Knot's service was one I was the most certain of. And on the big day I was able to enjoy the day and go with the flow knowing that Brooke was making sure everything was going as planned. If you want to avoid "Bridezilla" moments, working with Brooke is the way to go!

Christine was amazing as a weekend-of coordinator and planner to the extent that I needed her. She went over every detail with me to ensure everything was taken care of, and on the day of my wedding she was on top of everything and made sure everything went smoothly and without a hitch. Not to mention she was a lovely lady to deal with. I could not have done it without her help.

We worked with Brooke at Tying the Knot for our wedding day, and I could not have imagined my wedding day without her! In the weeks leading up to the wedding, she created a day of timeline, confirmed with vendors, and helped us feel at ease about the big day. She was there the entire wedding day coordinating everything. When the flowers were delivered in the wrong vases, she fixed it seamlessly and immediately. She kept a smile on her face the entire day, even when things/people were being difficult. Brooke allowed us to enjoy our wedding day without having to worry about anything. She absolutely made our wedding day the best day of our lives, and we could not imagine doing it without her!

Brooke at Tying the Knot is absolutely amazing. This is probably the best money I spent on my wedding. I hired her for the day of coordination and it gave me such relief during the week of the wedding. Brooke listens well to exactly what you need and she contacted every vendor to confirm details and go through timeline for me so that I didn't have to do this during the week of my wedding. She lead the rehearsal and then made sure the timeline was perfect on day of wedding. I could not have been happier with Brooke's service. She is also sweet, caring, friendly and a wonderful person that you want next to you during your stressful moments as a bride!

Words can barely express how much Tying the Knot added to our happiness. They helped make our wedding the most wonderful experience we have ever had. Not only did Tying the Knot ensure our wedding weekend was perfect, but they made the entire planning process extremely enjoyable and fun.

Everything went perfectly. Brooke made sure my husband and I didn’t have to worry about a thing throughout the planning process and especially on our wedding day. She did so much behind the scenes that we’ll never even know she did.

Brooke offered fantastic ideas, helpful thoughts, patience, coordination and project management skills, excitement for us, a calm demeanor, and personal investment in making our wedding day the best possible day it could be. Brooke never pushed any decisions on us. She always let us make our own choices and guided us with the right information we needed to make an informed decision. She helped us choose the perfect vendors with the best benefits for the price point we wanted. She always negotiated fairly on our behalf.

Our wedding would not have been as spectacular as it was without Brooke and Tying the Knot. Brooke took our words and ideas and made them come to life in a way that was better than we had ever dreamed. Brooke even made amazing, big requests happen with less than 48 hours to go before the wedding without ever appearing rattled or stressed (like my husband wanting to surprise me with an indoor winter wonderland blizzard)!

I can’t say enough about how wonderful Tying the Knot can help make your wedding.

Tying the Knot could not have done a better job at making our wedding day truly the "happiest day of our lives." From the moment we had our initial meeting with Brooke, I knew that they were the PERFECT choice when trying to find someone who could make planning fun and non-stressful. Our year and a half planning period could not have gone more smoothly thanks to their endless creative ideas and flexible schedules. Never once did I feel stressed about what needed to be done, when it needed to be done by, and whether or not I could get exactly what I wanted. Brooke worked to make everything perfect for our day! She was there for us throughout our entire day, allowing us to truly enjoy every single moment from getting ready all the way through the end of the reception. Never once did we worry about something not going as planned on our special day...we knew that was already being taken care of. Tying the Knot certainly went above and beyond our expectations and we would recommend them to anyone who wants a perfect wedding day!

Brooke was my primary coordinator. I hired her for day-of, but she really started taking things over several weeks beforehand. I had booked most of my vendors before hiring her, but she did make a few recommendations for the few I hadn't booked which was really helpful. As the day-of neared I was so burnt out and my placecard table idea was nothing but tons of pots of ivy and tickets that i just passed off and she put together the most amazing table! it looked fantastic! I woke up the morning-of completely stress-free b/c i knew she was running the show. As far as i'm concerned absolutely nothing went wrong. It was the most perfect day! I would recommend a day-of coordinator to anyone, but Brooke was beyond amazing!

Christine and Brooke of Tying the Knot made our wedding weekend run so smoothly, it seemed to hum. We'd already lined up all of our vendors ourselves, but being able to hand them over to Christine was the biggest burden off my shoulders for those last weeks before the wedding. She coordinated times, arrivals, and payments, not to mention setup of our favors (homebrewed beer) at the end of the evening. She even made sure my groom's boutonniere was on securely.

Brooke did a fantastic job on our programs, table numbers, and menu and place cards. Everything was beautifully laid out and just perfect.

They're a terrific team. Not once did I feel any stress about what was going on that day because Christine exuded a zen-like sense of calm and control. It couldn't have gone any better!
