Working with Gina at Wedding Savvy truly helped make our wedding the best day of our lives! My husband and I met with Gina a few months leading into the big day, and from that point on, she was our go-to person for any questions regarding our ceremony and reception. Gina was so patient and informative during our meetings, and was flexible with meeting times, ensuring that we could always email or call as well as meet with her in person. Most of all, Gina worked tirelessly to make sure that our wedding felt like "ours", and she really listened to our ideas and vision for the day. In the busy days leading up to the wedding, Gina did an amazing job coordinating with all our vendors and wedding party to make sure the day flowed flawlessly. She was such a comfort and huge help to us throughout the wedding day as well, and she honestly helped make it the wedding we'd dreamed of having. My family members and members of our wedding party were blown away with her coordination and her ability to be everywhere without ever interfering with our special moments. Gina is the best!!!

My husband and I are so glad we decided to hire Leslie Jefferson and the Wedding Savvy team to be our "day of" planner for our wedding. It was the best money spent in our entire wedding budget! Leslie truly exceeded expectations! She started working with us about two months out from the wedding and helped us create our entire timeline for the day – which was fantastic. We would never have been able to think of all of the little details that are crucial in order to make the day run smoothly. She mapped out every minute for us. She coordinated with all of our vendors and ensured me that they were providing everything they outlined for us in their contracts. She even owned communication with them and gave them direction to make sure they knew where they were going and what they were doing when. Leslie was always very enthusiastic and passionate about her work with us – she made it fun! I could text, email, or call her at any time and she was extremely responsive. She came out to the wedding location to meet with us and our vendors on multiple occasions and ensured that we always had productive meetings. Leslie was there with us for the rehearsal dinner and the wedding day, which was incredibly valuable. I would highly recommend hiring wedding savvy for your wedding planning!

Thanks to Wedding Savvy our wedding exceeded our wildest expectations and our day was absolutely perfect! We worked with Gina for a year leading up to our day and she was a blessing every step of the way. She connected us with amazing vendors, navigated the cumbersome process of scheduling meetings and and requesting contracts and bids, she tracked all of our decisions and budgets, and on top of all of that she supported us through the entire process. Planning a wedding can be an overwhelming task but while working with Gina we always felt confident that everything would turn out perfectly for our day.

In the weeks leading up to the wedding Gina created detailed day of timelines, inventoried what felt like the hundreds of decor details that I had worked tirelessly on all year and made sure each of our many vendors knew where to be and when to be there.

On our actual wedding day we were able to completely sit back and enjoy the day. The last thing I wanted was for any of our family members to be stressed or feel like they were working at our wedding. We wanted to the day to be a celebration of all of our favorite people and for that to happen they needed to feel like guests.

Our day was everything we ever possibly could have dreamed of thanks to Gina and her team! I'm sure things went wrong, problems arose and people had questions or concerns but I never heard a word of any of it! We floated from the ceremony to cocktail hour to the reception to find that every detail I had dreamed up had been executed magically. Gina made all of our dreams come true and I could not be more thankful for all of her hard work!

Annie with Wedding Savvy, Inc. created the most PERFECT wedding experience for my husband and I. Hiring Annie was without a doubt the BEST planning decision I made and it was completely evident throughout our entire day as everything was a dream. Scheduling and timing is essential to a successful wedding at the Naval Academy and Annie single handedly kept the entire bridal party and all of our family VIPs on track without missing a beat. Annie made a Schedule Of Events for our big day which directed us, our bridal party, family VIPs AND all of our vendors where to go and when to be there. In the weeks leading up to our wedding Annie took over all communication and became the point of contact for all of our vendors; leaving me nothing to worry about! She is so much more than a "day-of" wedding planner. Annie brings to the table a wealth of experience, professionalism and an extremely high attention to detail. On several occasions Annie brought to my attention ideas that I had yet to think of. The biggest example being that my Groom and I booked a wedding suite at a separate hotel for the night of our wedding but we never even thought to check in. Annie called the hotel to make sure we were checked in, discovered that we were not, and took care of the entire process without us knowing or having to worry about doing it ourselves. Then, as a little surprise, she had rose petals placed throughout our suite!! It was the perfect ending to an already magical day. In addition, Annie and her assistant packed up all of our decor from our reception and packed it in my in-law's SUV (and we had A LOT of decor)! I could not imagine placing that task on any family member or friend at the end of such a special day. Jiae, our Wedding Savvy, Inc. assistant, was with us every minute of the day with a bag full water bottles, protein bars, travel hairsprays, lip gloss and everything else we needed. If you are a bride in the Baltimore/ Annapolis area you need these ladies on your team!!

We worked with Leslie Jefferson and were thrilled with the service and support that she provided us throughout the entire process. It was great to have Leslie coordinate all the logistics with our vendors and pull all the different moving pieces together to ensure that our wedding weekend went off without a hitch. Having a wedding coordinator allowed my husband and I to focus on the bigger picture and enjoy our engagement, because we had someone else helping us with the details. The value of the wedding planner was realized especially in the weeks leading to our big day. The two weeks leading into our wedding were stress-free and calm, there really wasn't much for us to do because Leslie made sure that we wrapped things up in advance. When all of the bridesmaid's belongings didn't fit on the trolley, along with us, Leslie piled everything in to her car and took everyone's bags and clothes back to the reception site where we all were staying. (Definitely didn't think of that in advance) Leslie ensured that our wedding reception was setup exactly the way we designed and planned and allowed my husband, mother and me to spend more time with our guests and wedding party taking pictures, so that we didn't need to help with or approve the setup. Leslie picked up and delivered the bridesmaid's bouquets to the reception site, in advance, to be included in the centerpieces for some of the dinner tables. When my feet got sore from my heels, Leslie had my "back up" wedges waiting for me to change in to so I could continue dancing more comfortably. Leslie had our special toasting champagne flutes ready for us during our wedding parties speeches and then packed them up carefully when we were no longer using them. You don't realize all the little things that a wedding planner thinks of or helps out with until you're in the moment and truly appreciate all the little gestures that they took care of for you.

Wedding Savvy was awesome! We worked with Gina who was the consummate professional. Not only was she on top of everything, but she had an incredible amount of patience. So when I did drop the ball on a detail here or there, so was right there to (gently) remind me of what I needed to do. She was super flexible during the planning process, agreeing to talk at night after I got off of work. She made our wedding day so stress-free by coordinating all of our vendors and I'm sure putting out all sorts of fires from which she saved me. She was extremely helpful to our wedding party, family and my guests as well, even grabbing my wedding shoes from up in our room during the reception so that my husband's aunt could see what they looked like (totally above and beyond, but very much appreciated). Gina was everything I could ask for in a Day-Of Coordinator. I cannot recommend her highly enough. I wish I could give 10 stars. If you need a planner, go with her!

We originally signed up for full service. Being a new bride and a chronic over planner, my mother and I basically had the entire wedding planned (vendor-wise) within a few weeks. Raquel was great about switching our contract, so we ended up with the 2 month prior option. Leslie swooped in just in time for things to get crazy. My favorite thing was how cool, calm, and collected she is. She didn't seem to mind my constant emails and texts, meetings, questions, etc. The wedding day itself had ZERO issues, or if there were any I didn't know about it! She actually had the fore-site to see we needed more wine before dinner and had someone on her team run out and get it! The day was absolutely amazing, she offered great input, and everything just was wonderful. I didn't have to worry about a thing!

Wedding Savvy did a fabulous job for my daughter's wedding. I honestly don't know how we would have done it without them. Raquel made us feel so comfortable, right from the start....i could almost SEE the stress melting from my daughter"s face. Gina did a fabulous job keeping us right on track, quickly answering emails and phone calls. On the actual day, Gina handled every single detail, (plus a few snags) with grace and professionalism. What a great team!

Raquel Shutt at Wedding Savvy is simply amazing. I would absolutely recommend using her for your wedding. I felt at ease knowing that she was in charge of coordinating with all my vendors leading up to my big day. I knew what vendors I wanted to use for the photography, band, cake, florist and my mom and I were able to do a lot of the leg work at the very beginning. About 4 months out, Raquel took over. She worked out all the details and coordinated the schedule of events for the weekend. She made me feel like I had nothing to worry about with all the last minute important details. Raquel is very professional and brings a lot of humor and laughter to most situations! I knew she would take care of things and made my wedding day fabulous. I can't thank her enough for all the time, effort, patience and kindness she brought into my life the months and days leading up to it all. You will be very happy with her services and will not regret choosing Raquel at Wedding Savvy for your next event!

Raquel and her staff were just wonderful! Luckily I work from home so I was able to have the flexibility and availability to do a lot of the prep work myself so we went with her day-of plan. Otherwise, you can have total faith to put everything in Raquel's very capable hands. Gina was wonderful on the day of the wedding and everything went so smoothly!

Our "day of" wedding coordinator, Leslie Jefferson, made it possible for me to enjoy my own daughter's wedding. She was available to us way ahead of the wedding. She reviewed all of our vendor contracts and plans for the wedding day. She helped us make a comprehensive schedule. Her suggestions were so valueable to my daughter and I that we stopped worrying and started enjoying the entire process of planning for a wedding. I had been waking up in the middle of the night with anxiety attacks worrying over this "destination" wedding, fearful that I would forget something important. After Leslie stared working with us and helped us outline what we wanted, I slept soundly once again. The day of the wedding went beautifully, exactly as planned. My daughter and I had no worries as everything happened just the way we had envisioned it. Leslie made that schedule happen. I actually arrived at the reception just a bit ahead of the guests and the fireplaces were lit, the candles glowing on the tables, the waiters were waiting with champagne and appetizers, and I felt almost as if I were an honored guest. The entire evening went on that way, from speeches given in a timely manner, to cutting the cake, to the limo arriving on time to take the newly married couple away. It was a grand event and it happened without a single problem, thanks to our wedding , Leslie Jefferson. I recommend Wedding Saavy with the highest regard.

Leslie was absolutely amazing before and on the day of our wedding! She not only bent over backwards to make sure our day was special and stress free, but she also did it with a smile and exceptional professionalism. She brought together every detail of our wedding beautifully, and made our day exactly as we had hoped for. We would definitely recommend Leslie to all couples beginning to plan their wedding or even those already in the process. Our only regret is that we hesitated hiring a wedding coordinator up until the month of our wedding. After we had started working with Leslie, we wished we had called her from the very beginning of our planning!

Leslie, you were wonderful to work with and did a phenomenal job. Thank you very much!!!

I had the pleasure of working with Gina from Wedding Saavy as my "Day of" Coordinator for my wedding. All I can say is she was absolutely AMAZING! Not only did she take over two months out and deal with all of my vendors, she made a detailed day-of schedule and distributed it to everyone involved in the wedding to make sure everyone knew where they needed to be. I was so relaxed on my "special day" and everything ran so smoothly! I know that without Gina the day would have been much more hectic, especially since we had more than 250 guests with two separate locations. Gina did an incredible job and I would definitely recommend her to any bride looking to take some of the stress off of your shoulders in the months prior and the day of your wedding!

I cannot say thank you enough to Raquel Shutt, the owner of wedding savvy. She is amazing! Not only is she so talented and has the best visions and ideas but she is an incredible woman to work with, with a heart of gold. From day one I felt pampered. Never did i have a stressful moment. She made sure everything was right on track. I put all my trust in her. She listened to all my ideas and ran wild. My wedding was a wedding you can only dream of thanks to her. Everything ran so smoothly, everyone still compliments on how perfect our wedding day was. My favorite part is that I was able to enjoy and sit back on my wedding day. My husband and I had moments where we just looked around and realized this day was about us and it was beautiful because of wedding savvy. If you want a wedding day where you can enjoy every little moment I highly recommend wedding savvy. They will amaze you!

Raquel is so easy to get in touch with, she will always listen to you. She caters to her brides. She works with the BEST of the best vendors and they all have high respect for her. She's your go to woman!

Raquel and Wedding Savvy, Inc. were an absolute pleasure to work with while planning our wedding. Raquel was able to take our vision for both our wedding ceremony and reception and bring it to fruition. With Wedding Savvy based out of Annapolis, Maryland and my husband and I living and working in Ocean City, Maryland, Raquel made it both easy and convenient to schedule meetings with both herself and other vendors including the florist, decor company, photographer, etc. I can honestly say that our wedding would not have been the spectacular event that it was without her vision and ability to turn our simple ideas into such a fantastic, classy occasion. We had a wonderful time getting to know Raquel over the several months we spent planning our wedding with her. She spent a lot of time working with us, getting to know our likes/dislikes and personalities in order to really create a personal and unique wedding experience. Wedding Savvy has a great knowledge of vendor contacts and works with the best of the best. Our band, florist, photographer, bakery and decor company were amazing, all recommended by her. She personally coordinated between us and the vendors, which made it easy dealing solely with her rather than having to call each specific vendor. She was also very instrumental in helping us to stay within our budget and offered advice where to save money and where to perhaps splurge a bit. On the day of our wedding, her and her staff where there every step of the way from the time we started getting ready until the very end, she made sure everything was running smoothly and most importantly, made the day as stress-free as possible. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to make their wedding a truly amazing event. I know our wedding is one that we will never forget thanks to her and her staff.

Our day of coordinator, Leslie, definitely kept us on track -- not only on the day of, but in the weeks leading up to the event. She has a fantastic attention to detail and a calming presence, which was exactly what we all needed to ensure a perfect wedding day!

First of all, if you are going with wedding savvy, you need to go with Raquel. She's the best and while her other planners are good, she's the one you want and the one you need to form a relationship with from the beginning! Raquel has so much experience that it brought comfort to myself and my family to have her at the helm of the show! She is professional and timly assuring that the vendors honor their contracts, and the show runs smoothly. That is the biggest implement i have been getting after the wedding. That the whole afternoon and night ran so smoothly! Raquel made me confident that my guests would comfortable all night, but at the same time kept me and my family calm and comfortable. You may ask, as I still do, how can she do that? How can she manage the vendors, 200 guests, and the bridal parties? Well she did it. She more than managed us, she made sure it was perfect! For example, it was a tiny bit chilly, and we had heaters on reserve. Raquel calmly came up to me, waiting for a family member conversation to conclude, and asked how I felt about the heaters. Raquel is able to take your opinion into consideration while remembering her own professional experience. This made my family and I feel like the night was still very much ours, but with the polished finish of Raquel's professionalism.

I can't even begin to express how thankful we are for Wedding Savvy. My husband and I decided to have a short engagement (5 months!) and called Raquel approximately 2 months before our wedding date. She immediately put me at ease, was an excellent resource, and provided a fabulous planner, Gina! If you are hesitating at all on whether to hire a planner/coordinator - don't think, just call Wedding Savvy. I consider myself organized, but when it comes to planning a wedding you are going a thousand directions - having a pro by your side is highly recommended. At first my fiance was hesitant and thinking we could handle everything, in the end he said Wedding Savvy was the best decision we made and I couldn't agree more. This will save you time, money, and a lot of stress! Gina's attention to detail, coordination of the vendors, excellent research, day-of coordination, patience, professionalism, everything was impeccable! Our wedding wouldn't have been the success it was without Gina. She was always three steps ahead and had taken care of things before I even thought of them. Hiring Wedding Savvy truly allows you to enjoy your special day, relax knowing everything is taken care of, have peace of mind knowing you have someone to go to, and most of all have fun! Thanks Wedding Savvy and Gina!

Raquel Shutt and the team at Wedding Savvy did an absolute amazing job with the planning, organizing and execution for our wedding September 1, 2012. I cannot possibly recommend them more highly in your search for a wedding coordinator.
Raquel worked tirelessly to ensure our day went off without a hitch and all of her hard work and dedication paid off! We had the most wonderful day celebrating with our friends and family! We were engaged in April 2012 and decided to get married in under 5 months!
With an invite list of 350 guests we knew we would need a planner to help make the day a success. From the first meeting with Raquel we knew Wedding Savvy was the way to go, Raquel assured us that we could do everything we wanted even on a tight time line. Raquel was VERY easy to reach by cell, email or by meetings and made me feel as though we were her center focus! I have no idea how she is able to do it and around every corner was another surprise.
The list is endless of the tasks she was able to take over from my never ending “to do list”. She was able to manage the logistics to provide transportation for our guests for the weekend, set up valet parking, have a tent for our 250 guests with professional lighting erected in our backyard, coordinate flowers, photographer, caterers, tent design, house managers, dj, sparklers exit, church coordinators, hair & make up and AT THE SAME time keep me at ease  (and this is NO small feat)!
When the Wedding Savvy team arrived on the morning of the big day I was suddenly at ease knowing Raquel would take over and I could relax and enjoy our wedding day. From start to finish everything went so smoothly. We were pampered with an assistant at our side throughout the entire day to make sure we had everything we needed and really most importantly to make sure we had water and food to eat!
The bottom line is crystal clear; you will be thrilled with your special day if you choose Wedding Savvy to be at your side!

We wanted to get married in Annapolis while I was in VA, he was in SC, mom was in Tokyo, and both of us were military. I had contacted several wedding planning businesses and was in the process of talking to several of them when Wedding Savvy made my decision very easy for me. Raquel,owner, had contacted USNA w/ the dates I was interested in and reported back to me that my number one choice was still available and informed me as to how to reserve the date. At this point I had not given WS a penny nor had I signed a contract saying I would hire them.If they are willing to do this w/out contract/money how helpful will they be once I have actually hired them?! We hired WS (Leslie) and I am absolutely thrilled that I did. 3 weeks after my wedding I can say that the wedding was EXACTLY as I had envisioned and was everything I could have asked for.We had been together for 6 years before we got married so I had plenty of time to pick out every detail of our wedding in my head. My biggest fear was that the wedding wouldn't live up to my expectations since I had planned it for so long. Leslie made sure that didn't happen! What I loved most about Leslie was that she was able to take our vision and execute it flawlessly. Leslie was very accommodating with our long distance situation and scheduled meetings so when my mom flew in and my fiance came up we were able to get as much done in one weekend as possible. We loved every vendor Leslie introduced us too and felt that she paired us perfectly based on our personalities and the vision for our wedding. The day of was peaceful and relaxing because Leslie and a WS assistant had everything covered. I didn't have to worry about anything the day of except spending time with my mom, my girls and getting ready to walk down the aisle. I would highly recommend WS to anyone who is looking to ENJOY their wedding planning process by having a professional, organized, experienced, and caring wedding planner!

We loved every vendor Leslie introduced us too and felt that she paired us perfectly based on our personalities and the vision for our wedding. The day of was peaceful and relaxing because Leslie and a WS assistant had everything covered. I didn't have to worry about anything the day of except spending time with my mom, my girls and getting ready to walk down the aisle. I would highly recommend WS to anyone who is looking to ENJOY their wedding planning process by having a professional, organized, experienced, and caring wedding planner! Read less

I can't say enough about Erin and all she did to make my daughters wedding run without a hitch. She is organized, professional, understanding, kind, sees things others wouldn't and I could go on and on. Without Erin, our wedding would not have been as enjoyable for myself and my daughter. Erin took on all the responsibility for the day and allowed us to enjoy it. Before the wedding, when meeting with Erin, she gave us helpful ideas and suggestions to deal with many situations that come up. After our first meeting, my daughter and I relaxed for the first time in months, Erin's professionalism and calm made us feel confident that we could contact her with any questions, problems etc. and we were also confident that we had a special person in Erin that would help us through the wedding day. She worked well with all the vendors and they loved having her there to help them with any questions.
I could go on for pages with my praise for Erin but I will sum it up to say that the best thing we did when planning this wedding was to contact Wedding Savvy and the luckiest thing that happened is that we had Erin with us!!!!!
To Erin and Wedding Savvy all we can say is Thank You! Thank You! You made this a perfect day for Kristen and Danny and everyone at the wedding!!

Wow our wedding coordinator was so unbelievably helpful that I don’t even know where to start . . . Erin Calabrese was our “Day Of” Wedding Coordinator from Wedding Savvy, but the “Day Of” service is so much more!!! We met with Erin months before the wedding day and instantly connected because she was so friendly, outgoing, professional and knowledgeable about coordinating various wedding events. She reviewed all of our contracts, contacted each vendor and created an organized and detailed timeline for the wedding day. All of these items took a tremendous weight and stress off my shoulders. Erin was always available through email and we met with her a few more times right before the wedding to solidify all the small details that I was not even thinking about.

Erin helped run the church rehearsal the day before our wedding to ensure that all ran smooth. She provided each member of our wedding party with a condensed page timeline, so everyone knew where they had to be and at what times. On the day of the wedding, my family and I were completely calm and were able to truly enjoy the entire day without any concern since we knew Erin was there. The day ran so smooth and efficient and we owe all of that to Erin’s coordination throughout the past few months and on the day of with all of our vendors. Erin was so thorough, organized and energetic in dealing with me, my family, our wedding party and especially all of our vendors that we cannot thank her enough for making the day so special and memorable! I would, and have already, highly recommend Erin and Wedding Savvy’s day of service to others!

I cannot speak highly enough of Wedding Savvy, particularly Gina, and the amazing job they did for me on my wedding day. I suppose the highest compliment I can pay them is to say that I was unaware of any issues that occurred on the day. Every detail was accounted for, and I truly got to enjoy the wedding and reception rather than worry about any problems. Gina was prompt, professional, and responsive to any call or question I had. Looking back (on what I can remember since it was such a blur) I wouldn't change a single detail. I loved my wedding day, and I truly believe it was because of the hard work Gina and her assistant put in. Although I didn't need much assistance ahead of time with regard to planning and coordination, I will say that Gina was very helpful when it came to managing difficult vendors. That was a huge help and relief. I would encourage any bride out there to seek out Wedding Savvy's services for peace of mind. That is what my mother and I were hoping for, and Gina definitely delivered.

I originally hadn't intended to hire a wedding planner, as I thought that I could handle my wedding of fewer than 30 guests. But about 4-5 months into the process, I was exhausted by the numerous details of planning a wedding and the multiple phone calls necessary to reach vendors. So, I researched wedding planners on WeddingWire and then reviewed multiple planners' websites. I called Wedding Savvy first, because it had the only website that simply promised to take care of things, rather than plan "the wedding of my dreams!" - which wasn't what I was looking for. I have an extremely time-consuming job and eventually figured out that I needed to outsource the remainder of the wedding process in order to maintain my sanity. Owner Raquel Shutt called me personally and informed me that the majority of their brides also contact them when they reach the tipping point of frustration. After a satisfying conversation with Raquel, I hired Wedding Savvy for its day-of plus two-month service, which was perfect for me since my wedding was less than three months away at that point. Raquel assigned Leslie Jefferson, her associate who happens to live close to my wedding venue, to my account, and Leslie took over. I provided a list of my vendors, and from then on, the vendors worked directly with Leslie. We conducted all of our business by telephone (my choice, to save time), and Leslie was extremely helpful not only with coordinating vendors, but also with providing insight into things that hadn't occurred to me (e.g., the event manager at the venue hadn't suggested that we may need to order meals for the vendors). Also, having Leslie on-site on the wedding day was a godsend. She coordinated everything with the venue's staff, hosted the vendors, and also made sure that our family heirlooms (cake cutting set, for example) made it back safely to my hotel room. My only complaint - and it's very minor - is that Leslie said that she would contact all of my vendors as soon as the contract was active, but I spoke to two of them about a month later, and they didn't know who she was. Leslie explained that she had called them, but they hadn't returned the calls. Given my own frustration with the lack of responsiveness from vendors, that didn't surprise me. (Alert to all brides: I found vendors to be much more Type B than Type A generally, requiring a lot of follow up.) However, my primary reason for hiring a wedding planner was to deal with this issue, and I would have preferred that Leslie had connected with everyone promptly as promised. In the end, this didn't matter, and the wedding went beautifully. I would hire Wedding Savvy again and specifically recommend the firm to brides looking for a professional wedding planner who cares about making a bride's life simpler, rather than just the pomp and circumstance of a glamorous, large wedding. Additionally, I was impressed with Wedding Savvy's flexibility. My wedding was somewhat atypical (small guest list, no DJ/band & dancing), but Leslie adapted beautifully and we achieved exactly the wedding experience that my groom and I wanted.

Never in a million years did I think I would be able to plan my wedding in less than 4 months. Until I met Raquel... She was like a breath of fresh air. I went into our first meeting with only one centerpiece idea, and after that, her vison became my fairytale wedding. I did not have a single worry in the world, never had a bridezilla moment, all because she handled every single detail. I truly felt like she was a lifelong friend, and am so grateful that I had her to plan my wedding. It was a beautiful day, and I owe most of it to her. Thank you Wedding Savvy!!!!

Perfection.

Whether looking backward from the wedding or forward from our first meeting with Raquel Shutt, I can think of no other word to use. It was a magical event--mostly because of who the bride and groom are, partly because of the New Year's Eve date, but surely because of Wedding Savvy and Raquel. When we were clueless, she had a vision. When we had an idea, she had a plan. When the inevitable hiccup came, she had the antidote. From big--what would the venue be and how would the event unfold--to small--we forgot the garter--to everything in between, I can imagine no better partner in this wonderful adventure than Raquel. She had a sense of who we were and adjusted on the fly to deliver what we wanted and what we needed. Definitely a problem-solver not a problem-identifier, she was the calm in the middle of the maelstrom. Raquel and her staff were present when the situation demanded and in the background when things were running smoothly. The single best testament to what she gave our family came at the very end of the night, when we had toasted the New Year and had sent the newlyweds on their way, my daughter (the new bride) came rushing back to me and said, "Mom, where's Raquel, I need to give HER a hug!"

I hired Wedding Savvy because I understood that wedding planning is not MY profession, but it is theirs. And, boy, did that single decision pay dividends in quality, value, and straight-up enjoyment. That Raquel is known and respected throughout Annapolis became obvious and yielded amazing results. I unequivocally and with unbridled enthusiasm recommend Raquel and Wedding Savvy for your most special day. The memories of ours will last a lifetime.

In my many years of being a professional wedding photographer, I have had the opportunity to work with many event planners. In planning my event, I wanted to employ the very best in the field. Raquel Shutt of “Wedding Savvy” was selected as the event planner because she is brilliant at her work. She is extraordinary at what she does, from start to finish. The event was amazing. I received multiple comments on how great the party was planned and executed. I want Raquel to know that we thoroughly appreciate everything she done for us. She is truly a professional, amazing, organized, and she knows exactly what she’s doing. She will help you select the best vendors that meet your budget and requirements. Just sit back and enjoy your event. Photos by F.A. Formica

I worked with Gina from Wedding Savvy, she was great! We did most of the wedding planning ourselves but wanted someone to help us on the big day so we could relax and enjoy the party. We met with Gina once before the wedding and she helped us come up with a detailed timeline for the whole weekend. She also helped us with our rehearsal since our officiant was unable to come at that time. Gina was wonderful to work with, friendly and very helpful. Was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Thanks!

My wedding wouldn't have even been close to perfect if Gina from Wedding Savvy wasn't there. My dad stepped on my dress during the father/daughter dance and broke the bustle and Gina fixed it right there. Also, one of my bridesmaids totally ripped the back of her dress and Gina sewed it up at the reception in a couple seconds. She was so helpful and was there whenever I needed her. I didn't have to worry about a single thing the entire day because I knew I could rely on Gina. I would recommend Gina and the other members of Wedding Savvy to everyone!

Raquel and Wedding Saavy were truly amazing through the whole wedding planning process. I hired them for their "Day Of" services, but they began working with me and getting organized three months before our wedding. Raquel was always quick to respond to emails and phone call. She has great recommendations and relatonships with vendors. But most importantly she is extremely organized and friendly to work with. She was in contact with all of my vendors and had a very extensive day of agenda that everyone had signed off on weeks prior to our wedding. As all of my vendors felt prepared and coordinated, they were at ease on the day of and everything went perfectly!

Without Raquel, our wedding would not have taken place. I got married in the middle of a hurricane in August. I heard a lot of sad stories of couples having to call off their weddings that weekend. I fortunately had Wedding Saavy, and they managed to pull off my wedding almost exactly as it had been planned. It was truly incredible!

I had the pleasure of working with Raquel Shutt, the owner of Wedding Savvy. Not only is she the sweetest person you will ever meet, but she is professional and absolutely incredible at her job! We hired Raquel about two years before our wedding and it was absolutely the best decision my family made when it came to the wedding!! She is worth EVERY penny!! Not only did she relieve any and every stress I might have had about the wedding, but she also saved us more money than we spent on her!! Looking back, we were very (VERY) hesitant to hire a wedding planner because we didn't know if it was worth the money, but now it is so clear that it was the best decision we could have made!!

Prior to the wedding, Raquel helped us pick out all of our vendors. Because she is so well-known throughout the area, every single one of our vendors gave us a discount thanks to Raquel! Even more so, because Raquel had used all of our vendors prior to the wedding, we were able to pick the vendors that would not only give us the best price, but the vendors who would give us "the best bang for our buck." I have zero regrets about any of our vendors! Raquel did an amazing job helping us pick out vendors who all did a spectacular job!!

The day of the wedding was amazing! I didn't have to do anything except enjoy the day!! Raquel had EVERYTHING taken care of! I assume everything was 100% completely under control because I never had anything stressful brought to my attention and every single little detail of the wedding went off perfectly without a hitch! Even my bridesmaids loved Raquel because anything they forgot (scissors were their favorite necessity!), Raquel had it in her bag of goodies!!

Honestly, I cannot say enough good things about Raquel Shutt and Wedding Savvy. I strongly urge anyone considering a wedding planner to meet with Wedding Savvy. After your first meeting, you'll understand why you can't have a wedding without them!!

I assume everything was 100% completely under control because I never had anything stressful brought to my attention and every single little detail of the wedding went off perfectly without a hitch! Even my bridesmaids loved Raquel because anything they forgot (scissors were their favorite necessity!), Raquel had it in her bag of goodies!!

Honestly, I cannot say enough good things about Raquel Shutt and Wedding Savvy. I strongly urge anyone considering a wedding planner to meet with Wedding Savvy. After your first meeting, you'll understand why you can't have a wedding without them!! Read less

We had the pleasure of working with Raquel Shutt and her wonderful team for our wedding in May 2011. From the moment we started the planning process, we knew we were in capable hands. No words can express how easy and exciting Raquel made this whole process- from the initial meeting to the day of the wedding experience!

Although my daughter, Suzy Casey (the bride) contracted to hire your consultant, I would like an opportunity to provide feedback with my experience with Gina the day of the rehearsal and the wedding. I felt that Gina was "right on top of things!" She was pleasant and very professional. She interacted with us in a very positive, supportive manner. As the mother of the bride, I felt comfortable that I could trust Gina with taking care of all of the details entrusted to her. At times, she was able to anticipate and follow through on her intuition with situations that came up. The rehearsal and the wedding went by very smoothly, thanks to Gina! Veronica K. Casey

I can't thank Gina enough for her help with our wedding! I live in London, UK and needed on the ground, local support for our celebration in DC. Gina was so organized, professional and personable. She also was so thoughtful in stocking our limos with treats, leaving kind notes and working so well with all our vendors. Wedding Savvy came highly recommended from a family friend and now I, in turn, can in great confidence recommend Gina and the Wedding Savvy team to all brides to be.

Dear Raquel, Leslie, and Gina,

As one of your coworkers, I want to thank you for all of your advice, support, and guidance in helping me plan my own dream wedding. It was a wonderful experience being a bride, and being able to sit back and enjoy the day! Thank you for always answering my questions, and responding to phone calls and emails as soon as you could. You made me feel at ease on the day of the wedding, and I knew I could count on you to make the day flow smoothly and perfectly. I have always been a firm supporter of Wedding Savvy, and your performance on the rehearsal and the wedding day made my family and friends fall in love with the business too. Wedding Savvy is truly a unique wedding coordinating business that is professional, dependable, and makes every wedding day more complete. There is always some kind of stress the last few weeks leading up to any wedding, but Wedding Savvy is your key vendor to push that stress away and really soak in and enjoy every minute of your wedding day. Thank you again for making our day perfect!!!

Wedding Savvy was fantastic and went over and beyond my expectations. They were extremely flexible and worked very hard based on my desire for a unique, non-traditional wedding. I couldn't be more thankful and appreciative. I never thought I'd be able to say this, but I really had a fairy tale wedding. Thanks so much!

There just are not words to describe how valuable a service Wedding Savvy provided, and I would stress that you almost cannot appreciate it until after the fact. As the Mother of the Bride and the chief host of the event, I wanted to give my daughter and son in law the wedding of their dreams, but I also wanted to enjoy the day myself. Leslie took care of every detail, thoroughly, professionally, compassionately, as if it were her own event. She listened to my daughter, her fiance', me and somehow made each of us feel/know we were in good hands. I never doubted any tiny detail, and our day was simply perfect! This was the best money I ever spent!! I was a detail-holic, and early on I questioned my need for this service, but in the end, I needed it MOST because I was the type of person who valued that kind of service and attention. If you are a bit like me, trust me, you need someone like Wedding Savvy in your corner...and if you AREN'T like me, then you REALLY need them, or you'll be sorry. Thank you thank you thank you, Raquel and Leslie and Jessica, for a dream come true!!!

I knew Wedding Savvy was right for us from the very beginning. Leslie ensured that all the details were addressed before the big day and really made our wedding day go extremely smooth. As the bride, I was able to be at ease throughout the process thanks to Leslie's help. We've had nothing but rave reviews from everyone that attended the wedding and its because of the great detail, professional service, and attentiveness of Leslie and Wedding Savvy! I would recommend them to any bride and groom, they were an absolute pleasure to work with!

There is one word for Raquel Shutt and Wedding Savvy - AMAZING!

My daughter was recently married with a guest list of 200 for an outdoor ceremony.

We met with Raquel a few months before the wedding and began the "Schedule of Events" - She continued to work with us up to the minute of the wedding perfecting the "Schedule of Events" so that every little detail flowed perfectly. And it did! Every second of the wedding and reception was planned with perfection. All of my guests were amazed at the detail to the wedding and how smoothly everything went.

Raquel had a solution to any obstacle we faced. One thing that really impressed me with Raquel is that she LISTENED to what the bride wanted and envisioned, and with that skill, Raquel was able to create the wedding of my daughter's dreams!

There is no way we could have pulled off this wedding without Wedding Savvy. Raquel worked with all of the vendors and made sure everyone and everything and every detail was in place. There was not one minute that we were concerned that something would go wrong.

I would 100% recommend Wedding Savvy for your wedding. I would say that it is the best money spent - well worth it.

Wedding Savvy made our wedding PERFECT!

Wedding Savvy definitely saved our sanity! I had been convinced that we did not need a day of coordinator, but thankfully my stepmother didn't listen to me and set up a meeting with Raquel anyways...it was only after that meeting that I actually started to get excited about the wedding instead of just stressing out. We did the day of coordinator package which was just what we needed since we had booked all of our vendors early on, but needed help pulling everything together and logistically getting through the day. Raquel was extremely flexible and we had meetings at some crazy times to accommodate our schedules, and she was very patient with my family and our diverse requests/needs. It was great having her take over all the details with the vendors so we only had to talk to her instead of trying to contact each vendor individually for any changes.

The day of schedule was excellent and thanks to that schedule everyone got where they needed to be on time. Her staff on the day of the wedding was super sweet and very professional, and very prepared. Raquel had scissors on her purse for when my husband stepped on the sash of my dress and ripped it completely off...she had my loose threads cleaned up and me back on the dance floor within 30 seconds. Raquel also knows her weddings - the timing of the speeches was spot on and she encouraged us not to extend the wedding an extra hour to make sure we left on a high note and before other guests started to leave...and despite our not wanting the night to end, the visual of us leaving on the boat with all of our guests cheering was the highlight of the day for both of us.

I'm so glad we hired Wedding Savvy, they did an excellent job and allowed my family to enjoy the wedding rather than worry about the hundreds of details. Thanks again!

Leslie Mahoney and Raquel Schutt of Wedding Saavy have the wedding planning market cornered! As first time planners, my mom and I found the process to be a bit daunting and we were mostly worried about coordinating the events and corresponding vendors on the big day. We agreed upon Day-Of Coordination with Wedding Saavy and from that point on, while our agreement was for the "day-of" we felt taken care of throughout. Leslie was brave enough to meet my entire family and fiance for our preliminary meeting, where she wrangled us all with grace! And she asked us questions that we hadn't even begun to consider. We knew immediately that her presence at the wedding would be crucial. Fast forward to the few days leading up to the wedding and Leslie was on top of it all. I've often heard that vendors dont like working with coordinators, but Leslie was able to be assertive yet gracious with everyone. She went above and beyond to completely take care and set up all the accessory/decor items that I had been collecting, and most importantly, at the end of the night, had snuck into the bridal suite to decorate our bed and drop off all our belongings.

My father said it best; Leslie was never in the way, but always there. Dont know if that was because he found her truly helpful or if it was because she offered to get him his drinks throughout the whole night! But either way, I'll take it....a happy dad on wedding night cant be beat. I also remember at one point saying "well, we have to wait until Leslie gets..." and I was interrupted by a cheery "Im right here!" from just behind. Again, her presence felt but never seen.

Leslie was the best gift we received that day. I recommend her and Wedding Saavy to any Annapolis brides. My sister will certainly use her in the future!

Raquel was absolutely wonderful to work with!! We hired her for "day of" services, and we had so many of our guests (and the bridal party) comment on how helpful and organized she was. Honestly, we could not have gotten through the day without her! She was extremely prompt with emails, very professional, and definitely kept us on track. We were actually able to relax on our wedding day because she took care of every single detail. She gave us great advice when we needed it, had lots of ideas, and was simply fantastic to work with. The day before the wedding I was sitting at the pool with my maid of honor and got an email from Raquel that said "You're off duty, bride!" and that if any person, any vendor, etc. had a question, tell them to call her. I was not to worry about a thing! She volunteered to pick up everything from pens for the guest book to extra bobby pins for my hair. Whatever it took to make my life easier. I would definitely recommend her to any bride out there!

She even moved ALL of our belongings from one hotel room to the suite they upgraded us to during the wedding. GOD-SENT, I tell you!!

Wedding Savvy, and Raquel specifically, gave me the perfect wedding day! My family and friends made the day, but Raquel made it possible for me to enjoy it and "take it all in" from the week beforehand to the day after the wedding.

I worked with her for about a year - she helped me pick vendors (which she pre-vetted before i met with them to make sure they would fit in my budget), brainstorm ideas for themes/decorations, and coordinated all aspects and logistics of the day - leaving no stone unturned - and kept people on schedule!

Our conversations and meetings were always fun AND professional - not an easy combination to balance. She has great relationships with a number of people in the area, but I always felt like she was MY advocate when dealing with vendors and locations. I was the type of bride that was always excited about getting married, but really wasn't all too excited about PLANNING it all. Raquel made it FUN! and took a lot of the stress out it.

The real value was the ease i felt all weekend because someone was looking out for me - i was completely confident that everything was taken care of and that potential crisis would all be averted leaving me, my husband, and our parents to truly enjoy the event.

They picked up all of my "stuff" - gift bags, votives, guest book, and other accessories - the monday BEFORE the wedding and distributed it to where it needed to be saving me from endless "week of" errands. She handled all last minute guest and table changes without stress or concern. The spaghetti strap on my dress snapped off one hour before the ceremony, she got out her needle and thread and fixed it! And her team personally made sure all of my belongings (presents, envelopes, accessories, purses) got back to the hotel in my parents car after the ceremony.

We had several comments from people not only saying how much they enjoyed themselves, but how incredibly organized the day was. It literally went off without a hitch - "perfect weddings are perfectly planned" - and i attribute that entirely to Raquel and the Wedding Savvy team!

If you want a stress-free wedding day and actually ENJOY your wedding, hire Wedding Savvy. We were planning our wedding from out of town and Wedding Savvy made everything as easy as possible. The founder, Raquel Shutt, is a true pro and handles everything she does with grace, professionalism, and the highest of standards. I had unlimited email access to her and she ALWAYS made time for me. She made me feel truly special, and not that I was an important client, but her ONLY client (which I know was not the case!). If there is one thing to be sure you invest in on your wedding day, invest in Wedding Savvy.

If there is one thing to be sure you invest in on your wedding day, invest in Wedding Savvy. Read less

I reached out to Raquel after finding her information in the Washingtonian Magazine. In the description, it said that Raquel was known by brides for her professionalism and that she specialized in weddings in Annapolis and the Eastern Shore. Since we knew we were opting for a water/beach type wedding, I felt it was best to get in touch with her and go from there. From the beginning, Raquel provided me with everything a bride needs to get through all of the wedding planning, but also a great sounding block for those millions of questions that always pop up along the way. She basically became one of my closests friends for 13 months since we emailed and met together more than I did with just about anyone else! I can't say enough about how particular I was on things and of course, what bride isnt nervous? But Raquel kept me on the ball, focused and made sure I remembered that my marriage was always the most important. Needless to say, when the actual day arrived, I saw all of the efforts of months of planning come together and it was simply beautiful! We were fortunate enough to not only have Raquel, but Lesley there who also did an incredible job keeping us on time and making sure we had everything we needed. I'd also like to emphasize how having a professional who knows multiple vendors can recommend solutions months out to days away (like when I picked my dress up from the seamstress wrinkled!). Raquel came to the rescue and there was nothing on my day I would have changed. Thank you so much to Raquel and her entire team for everything they did along the way to make my wedding and all of the planning one that was truly unforgetable!!!

Wedding Savvy was very helpful through out the whole process. From the initial consultation I knew that I could count on Raquel to help with any questions I had. After getting Valerie, two months out from the wedding, she was just wonderful. Her professionalism and responsiveness were very helpful in making our day everything we dreamed of. She sat down with us and took all my ideas and put them on paper and organized them so that I could see how the day would go. She was responsive to my millions of ideas and e-mail and added everything effortlessly. She even was able to trouble shoot the day before the wedding to move all the seating for the guests somewhere else and even moved a guest table the day before the wedding to help solve some seating problems. She was even calm and collected when the wedding venue did not have power for a couple hour the day of the wedding. I would highly recommend her to friends and have even told a few girlfriends about Wedding Savvy already.

Wedding Savvy made our wedding run perfectly smooth. We hired them for “day-of” coordination for our March wedding. Since I am a perfectionist, I knew I wanted someone there on my wedding day to take every worry away so I could actually enjoy my wedding day. Leslie and her assistant executed that task flawlessly.

Leslie was professional and super sweet. She met me and my mother about a month before the wedding and went over every detail of the wedding in order to create an organized schedule for myself, immediate family and bridal party. My mom left the meeting feeling so relieved that we had hired Wedding Savvy. Leslie took care of contacting all my vendors and confirming final details. This was truly helpful in the week before the wedding. She also attended my wedding ceremony rehearsal the night before and answered any questions from family and bridal party. Following the wedding, Leslie packed up her car with all my belongings from the venue and dropped it off at my parents the following morning. This was extremely helpful and thoughtful given that most of our guests were in a bus so we did not have to worry about designating that task to anyone.

I would recommend Leslie to any of my friends or any bride out there who is looking to have someone remember the little details you forget and make sure your wedding runs as smoothly as you always dreamed!

Wedding Savvy made our wedding completely perfect! We had them for day-of coordination for our wedding in September and it couldn't have gone any better. We worked with Raquel (the owner) and Rachel was there for the rehearsal and the day of. They went above and beyond to make sure every detail was taken care of! I didn't want to have to worry about anything the entire week of the wedding, and they made sure I didn't have to!

Rachel even came to my house 4 days before the wedding to pick up all my "wedding stuff" and she had it all perfectly set up when we arrived at the venue the day of the wedding! She was very visable all night if we ever needed anything. She packed EVERYTHING up and loaded it into my parents car at the end of the wedding and made sure everything was taken care of. She was so polite and always had a smile on her face the entire day! She even cleaned cobwebs off the deck rails before any guests arrived - my mom was so impressed by this attention to detail she almost cried!

I would highly recommend Wedding Savvy to help with making any wedding run flawlessly! They are pros!!

Raquel, the owner of Wedding Savvy was an absolute pleasure to work with. She customized her services to my needs and really went the extra mile. She did a spectacular job decorating the venue, and kept everything and every one on schedule. She offered up great ideas, that only an experienced planner would know. With Raquel taking responsibility for the details of the day, she allowed my husband and I to sit back and enjoy our day. It would not have gone as smoothly without her.

Our situation was unusual since it was a small renewal of vows ceremony on a boat. Since we were from out of town and didn't know the vendors, it would have been really difficult for me to pull this together without Raquel's help.

She made it nearly effortless with the caterer, music, officiate and photographer. She even arranged the location for us to gather everyone aboard the boat. All of it was top notch and more than exceeded my expectations.

She was an invaluable resource in setting up the event on rather short notice. I would recommend their services to anyone!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Wedding Savvy - the owner Raquel was amazing to work with up front. As soon as I spoke to her, I knew I wanted to book them. She was super cool, knew exactly what "type" of wedding I was envisioning, and matched me to Erin C. who I absolutely love! Erin and I met many months before my wedding - and from the getgo she was able to keep up with my crazy ideas and even help keep me on track. She did all the thinking for me - and I was just have to answer questions (that was easy!). She was so reliable with getting things to me and with meeting up to discuss details. I do not know how she does it, but she never once seemed stressed - just always pleasant and smiling and keeping things moving forward. Her assistant was equally nice and both were totally under the radar on the day of the event.
We had a Persian wedding which is quite elaborate but she worked closesly with my contact at the venue to set it all up and then broke it down afterwards. She was also able to coordinate a bunch of uncooperative adults (I love my family!) to keep things on schedule. Anytime I panicked for a quick second, she has an answer or solution ready to go.
Our favorite detail is after my ceremony, my husband and I took our couples pictures on the beach. We came back and my feet were all sandy. As I was wondering how I would clean them to put my feet back in the shoes, she quickly got water and a towel and washed my feet - that was definitely not in the contract!! ;-)
I am sad I won't be working with Erin anymore but would recommend her to any fun bride!

I hired Leslie a year before the wedding. We had the package which was slightly more than day of, I think called Assisted Planning. She helped me put together a budget, recommended vendors, put together a tremendous day of time line and was invaluable on the day of the wedding. I am a major control freak and on my wedding day I felt like the guest of honor, being waited on and not worrying about a single thing. This was hands down the best money I spent and I cannot say enough positive and wonderful things about her and her assistant.

She was able to work with all kinds of vendors to help us get good rates and since the company had such a good reputation in the community, we were well taken care of by all our vendors. Amy was always available for our many questions and beautifully organized our event. I didn't even have to worry about anything even in the last month before the wedding when I was living in a different state. I couldn't recommend a better planner!

I cannot say enough positive things about Wedding Savvy. We had an unusual wedding as my husband is British and British receptions are much longer. So our reception was from 3p- 12 am on a boat Raquel worked diligently for many many hours to make sure everything ran smoothly. If there were any bumps in the road I was unaware, she handled everything during the day. As for the planning every vendor she recommended was top notch. My friends still comment that my wedding had the best food and dj. If your are going to spend the money on a wedding planner you will not do any better than Wedding Savvy

Leslie was just wonderful! Once we got started she was completely on board and the communication was always great! She gave us a great timeline of events and times and kept us on schedule. She worked well with the Beach Club's staff and stayed until the very end to make sure that I got everything I needed into my car. It was so nice to have someone who I knew had my back from the busses all the way to the sparklers at the end. For as busy as we were in the days leading up to the wedding it gave me a lot of comfort knowing that everything would be taken care of. The only regret that I have and this is my fault only is that for some reason we never rounded up my family for a big group photo. I don't know how that happened! We just ran out of time. I need to talk to Katie and Justin when they get back to see if they had asked the photographer to get the family together. AGain, my fault but I do regret that we didn't make it happen because I know that the grooms family had their family shot done. I would reccommend to anyone to hire your services because it was a huge help! Thanks again to Leslie!

She is very available and patient....even when I was freaking out!:) She always had suggestions that were helpful with everything from décor to budget.
Gina was my day of wedding planning. She was extremely organized and put everything together for us. She made time lines and schedules and made everything go the correct way. She even did and said things that I could not do myself if it was too uncomfortable for me. Gina even went as far as giving me her flip flops half way through the reception because my feet were hurting. Gina was wonderful and truly went above and beyond. I loved wedding savvy.

Gina was so helpful! Very easy to work with. She even helped sow my wedding dress the morning of my wedding. Total lifesaver. Would definitely recommend her to someone else.

Gina Ingel was our wedding planner and she did an excellent job. She was everything we wanted in a coordinator- communicated with all our vendors, setup a timeline, helped with our vision for the decor, and of course assist with getting everyone where they are supposed to be on the wedding day. My husband and I really enjoyed working with her. My bridesmaids were even loving her her by the middle of the evening. I only wish I had another wedding to plan with her. Robin, her wedding-day assistant was wonderful as well- very helpful!! I will encourage all of my friends to utilize Wedding Savvy so that they can have the same enjoyable experience. Thank you Gina!!

Raquel was both fun to work with and professional. Her "day of" work was outstanding!! Her staff were prepared and good energy without being seen too much i.e. letting the wedding party take center stage.

I used Wedding Savvy's full service wedding planning to plan my wedding. My consultant was Leslie, and she did an amazing job helping me plan my wedding. My wedding day was perfect and exceeded all of my expectations. Leslie is a great judge of character and was able to recommend vendors that fit with the vision of my wedding as well as fit with my personality. I would recommend Wedding Savvy's wedding planning services without any reservation.

Gina Ingel was my wedding consultant and I enjoyed working with her from start to finish! I lived about an hour and a half from my venue and Wedding Savvy, Inc., and Gina was always understanding and flexible with my schedule. The day of my wedding, I did not have to worry about a single thing and trusted that day to Gina completely!

Annie did a fantastic job for our day of coordination. I was so impressed with her responsiveness, professionalism, and execution! She kept the wedding reception running smoothly and I would highly recommend her to any of my friends! My wedding party was very loud and bossy and Annie held her own and directed everyone around with ease. I even had her go on scavenger hunt to find my dress that I wanted to change into (wasn't planning on changing out of my wedding dress) and she gathered everything up and brought it to me. Cant say enough good things about Annie- she will have a great career in wedding planning!

We had a great experience working with Wedding Savvy. Leslie gave us great guidance in the weeks leading up to the wedding. Leslie & Annie were a huge help on the wedding day - meeting the vendors at the venue and making sure everyone knew where to be and when. I did a lot of the planning/organization myself, but their day-of coordination made a huge difference (and provided piece-of-mind for the whole bridal party). I would highly recommend their team.
