Leslie Jefferson was our wedding coordinator and she was absolutely fabulous! Her knowledge of vendors, responsiveness and calm and collected demeanor helped to set the tone for our entire event. She worked with our budget while never sacrificing the quality of services that we received from vendors. The weekend of our wedding Leslie was two steps ahead of us at all time- tending to the tiny details that made our day so spectacular. She took what can only be described as a dream wedding and turned it into a reality. We would recommend her for any Eastern Shore party!

Raquel helped me plan a 300 person wedding on a blank venue. She always made sure that i felt comfortable throughout the entire process and for that reason i found myself relying on her for support during a very stressful time. Without her, I probably would have gone crazy trying to plan and coordinate with all of the vendors while commuting to DC everyday for work.

Her vendor recommendations were great. We used Kens Kitchen for the food (Ken actually recommended Raquel to me and that is how i found her), Loan Brothers for the tents/floors (we used a mix of different tents but my favorite was the glass roof with chandeliers..it was stunning!), Silver Stems for the flowers (they were wonderful but i do wish they would have followed my directions when i asked NOT to use berries. luckily, they were so beautiful that it didn't matter. The baby's breath alter turned out to be a great addition!), XOXO vintage for some fun decorations (the furniture decor turned out beautiful...the lounges were awesome!) The vendor who stood out the most to me was the photographer that Raquel recommended. Her name is Amy Deputy and she is truly an angel...the bridal party loved her and she left a great impression with EVERYONE.

I trust Raquel & Wedding Savvy to follow through with whatever they promise. The Wedding Savvy Staff always responded to me almost immediately and i always felt comfortable asking for their help. Originally, my wedding was going to be 150 people so Raquel did a great job adjusting numbers and making things happen. Wedding Savvy did a great job from the beginning to the end and i feel 100% recommending them to anyone who wants to have a great wedding! I may even miss seeing Raquel now that the wedding is over! ;)

We live out of state and really needed someone we could rely heavily on. Leslie Jefferson was absolutely outstanding. She helped us with every single aspect of our wedding weekend. We did not even know where to begin with vendors and she was amazing. We could not have asked for a better person to rely on! She went above and beyond our expectations. We would not have been able to do it without her!

Think you don't need a wedding planner? What happens when the groom forgets the marriage license at home and the church won't let the service start without it? Our wedding coordinator, Annie Schmidt, drove to our condo 30 minutes away and went into our file cabinet to retrieve it and bring it to the church on time.
From our first meeting with Raquel, owner of Wedding Savvy, I instantly felt relieved as she convinced us that wedding planning can be an enjoyable process with the right help. Wedding Savvy offers a great "junior consultant" package that is half the price of the competing companies we researched. Our planner had less experience (say 2-3 years instead of 10-15), but was extremely knowledgeable, calm, and organized. Just what we needed! Raquel oversees all of her junior planner's weddings and is available to answer their questions or help problem solve. Annie wrote out a detailed day of timeline and took over communication with all of our vendors. For the month before the wedding we didn't have to talk to the bakery, limo company, hotel coordinator, photographer, church, makeup, hair, etc. etc. about anything. If we had any questions all we had to do was text Annie and she would find the answer for us.
Annie and an assistant insured that the day of ran smoothly and answered any questions our family and guests had. My mom, sister, bridesmaids, and groom where able to completely relax and didn't have to think about logistics or look at a watch.
I would highly recommend Annie Schmidt and Wedding Savvy to any bride and groom looking for some peace of mind and insurance that their wedding day will be everything they imagined.

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!
