Elizabeth was wonderful! When we were looking for a wedding planner for my brother's wedding at my parent's waterfront home we knew to go to Wedding Savvy as Raquel did an amazing job planning my own wedding at the same location in May 2007. We worked with Elizabeth this time and she did such a great job bringing all of the details together for the big day and making sure everything was running smoothly. We would absolutely recommend Elizabeth and Wedding Savvy for your wedding or event! - The Brennan Family, Annapolis

I highly recommend using Wedding Savvy, Inc. There are not enough words to describe how amazing they were. As someone that is in the hospitality & meeting planning industry and has a good understanding how a lot of this stuff works, I honestly hesitated getting a planner at first because I know how extremely high my expectations are and I was worried I would end up not being able to trust the other person to know my style and not be as detailed about everything as I am. I quickly realized that planning a 160-200 person wedding myself, let alone from another state (my husband and I live in Charlotte, NC and we got married at the Naval Academy in Annapolis), was going to be tough. We ended up choosing the day of planner package and were so fortunate to receive Jiae as our coordinator. She was AMAZING! I honestly don't know how to put all my thoughts together because there are so many good things I have to say about her. From start to finish, she was always so professional, extremely knowledgeable and never for a second did I not trust any of her decisions or recommendations. One of the best things is that she always remained so calm and made it seem as if everything was always going to be ok. This was a huge help and what allowed me to always remain calm and relaxed. She always responded promptly and everything was always delivered on time. The day of the wedding day could not have gone any better. She and Amelia were both just simply amazing. Amelia was with us a lot and she was so sweet, so professional and the only reason we were always on time that day. I have heard so many horror stories about stuff going wrong at weddings. I knew (from so many people telling me) that there is nothing I can do if something does, but to not let it ruin the day. Because of that, I went into the day almost expecting something to go wrong so that I was not surprised when it did. I honestly could not tell you if anything went wrong that day.

We had the most amazing weekend and an unforgettable wedding day, all thanks to Raquel & Amelia of Wedding Savvy. The planning, organization, detail coverage & professionalism was exquisite, and the execution was absolutely flawless. It has always been quite hard for me to let go and give up control when it comes to planning, especially being a bride. I can’t even begin to explain how comfortable and at ease I felt with Raquel and her team in charge. They took care of absolutely everything and have my forever thanks!

Wedding Savvy was wonderful from beginning to end! Raquel, the owner, gave us very sound advice before we decided to use them, and she chose Amelia as our main advisor and planner. Amelia was perfect for us. She was a good listener; calm; she had very good suggestions on decorating and choosing things that went together nicely to create the whole ambiance that we were wanting. We found her very easy to share ideas with. She then was able to organize everything into what we were wanting. I would use her again for any other events she could help us with. Raquel stayed in touch to make sure all was going well. In all, Wedding Savvy is an event planning group with much experience, very professional, and who also have a heart. We think of them as "friends in our time of need," and would definitely use them again for any other events they could help us with.

I cannot say enough about how great Wedding Savvy was to work with for our wedding! We decided to hire Wedding Savvy to help with the coordinating of several vendors as well as the decoration set up of the church and reception. Elizabeth went above and beyond on the day of the event! She was so easy to get in touch with and we received so many complaints from several vendors about how great she is!

I'll start by saying that Wedding Savvy was by far the best decision my husband and I made for our wedding. If you are on the fence- in terms of using a coordinator, more specificially Wedding Savvy, stop doubting yourself now and hire them immediately.

I first talked to Raquel at Wedding Savvy a little over 3 months before my wedding date and at the time I remember I was very close to just cancelling everything and telling my husband we should just elope. The whole process was extremely overwhelming- especially working full-time. After I spoke with Raquel, however, I felt much better about the process, it was more clear and do-able in my mind and I decided to give hiring a coordinator a shot. I ended up working with Jessica and she was THE BEST. We used Wedding Savvy for "day of coordination" which really means they work with you a few months before the wedding to ensure the day of your wedding is perfect. They also stay with you the entire day of the wedding and help things run smoothly.

Everyone I dealt with at Wedding Savvy was extrememly responsive, knowledgable, willing to help, friendly and encouraging. I can honestly say that there were a few times that they saved my husband and myself from things going horribly wrong both before the day of the wedding and during the wedding day. I remember several times during the night of the reception when my husband and I had a moment to talk, we kept saying "what would we have ever done if we didnt have these coordinators here to help out? " I just couldn't have asked for a better day or better peolple to help us.

I also had a significant amount of DIY in terms of centerpieces, and Wedding Savvy was great in terms of planning what pieces went where and setting everything up. Our reception was BEAUTIFUL- just stunning.

I'd like to thank the ladies at Wedding Savvy; Raquel, Jessica, Christine and Erin for making our wedding the best it could be!!

Our day (weekend more like it) was AMAZING. We cannot begin to express how happy we are with everything Wedding Savvy has helped us achieve over the last 8 months. It seems like yesterday that we were driving to your office in the ice to start this process.

Gina is the absolutely the best! She is a true professional. From day 1 she listened to everything we threw at her, and then she put together the vision and made it a reality. We had no idea what we were doing but her patience and professional approach made the process seem easy. She has an innate ability to know what we wanted or needed even when we didn’t. She could take our rambling list of wants and desires and transform them into the perfect plan (while making us think it was our idea all along). We grew to trust her and rely on her throughout the planning and often found ourselves asking for her opinion on the way ahead. She became much more than our planner through the process, she truly was part of our wedding. She delivered a perfect set of vendors to suit our personality and desires and left no stones unturned.

The actual weekend was amazing. Your staff under Gina’s lead made everything run smoothly and seamlessly. Even though we knew everything that was going on, they quietly orchestrated in the shadows and were the perfect event managers. We know how much work goes into this and Gina, Amelia, and the others that assisted throughout the process seemed to go above and beyond the call of duty at every step.

We received so many compliments on EVERYTHING! From the rehearsal to the ceremony, the reception, DJ, flowers… literally everything. Even the staff at the Westin said it was the most classic, traditional, beautiful setting and event they had witnessed (and they see a lot). We wanted a classic, traditional, timeless and elegant event and you delivered it perfectly.

Thank you for making our event more than we ever dreamed it could be!
