Samantha Little Weddings and Events
I am so very pleased with the service that Samantha provided the day of our wedding. It really meant a lot to me to have someone that I trusted taking care of everything so that I could take a breath and enjoy the day. Our outdoor VT wedding in the fall was rainy and cold, but Samantha knew to have the heaters running early to help dry out the space under the tent (especially by the bar!!) and have it nice and cozy for when the guests arrived. She worked with the caterers, florist and DJ and set-up EVERYTHING while I sipped mimosas with the bridesmaids. I felt a little spoiled, but completely trusting of whatever decisions she would have to make. She was on-hand, quick and decisive throughout the night... took care of my broken bustle and sleeping nephew/ring bearer in the family room. She cleaned up after the reception making pick-up the next day seamless and actually pretty effortless. I was most thankful for that. It was a long day for her, but she was professional and so sweet.
We used Samantha Little for our day-of coordination. Prior to the
wedding day, Samantha met with us three times and we communicated
regularly by email. She was always very professional, knowledgeable,
and timely in handling all aspects of our wedding. On the wedding day
itself, Samantha coordinated everything and it turned out perfect. We
did not have to worry about any decisions to be made, problems to be
fixed, or bills to be paid. We were going to try and have a
completely DIY wedding, but now that it's over and I know what a big
undertaking it was, I would highly recommend using Samantha for her
Samantha Little Weddings and Events was our savior! In less than a year we had to plan a wedding, move 3,000 miles away, buy our first home, welcome our daughter into the world and prepare for our 5 yr to start kindergarten. Samantha knew right away what our vision was for our dream wedding. We have yet to meet anyone who was/is as dedicated to their work as Samantha! She met me at my dress fitting. After trying on a few dresses she came to me and asked me to try on a dress even though it wasn't quite what I had in mind. I fell in LOVE with the dress! When we had trouble with bridesmaids dresses she came to the rescue quickly with a solution! She was very helpful with all the decisions my husband had to make regarding the gentleman. She was VERY patient with my husband and I having NO experience in planning such an important event. She helped us find the perfect save the dates and wedding invitations and assembled each one with TLC and mailed them out! She spent endless hours on the phone and exchanging emails with vendors thousands of miles away piecing together our dream destination wedding. We were completely confident with Samantha making very important decisions on our behalf seeing how we were VERY busy with our new home, baby girl and 5 yr old son. She NEVER disappointed us! Whether it be with flowers, linen colors, seating arrangements etc. During our wedding I found myself over whelmed. She was on the floor changing my shoes and helping me out of my dress. Always making sure that both my husband and I were well taken care of. When the other vendors failed to do their part she picked up their slack without question! She did her job to the ultimate extent that my husband and I never noticed the mishaps with the other vendors and held up the utmost professionalism. Now months later Samantha is still involved in wrapping up our loose wedding ends. We highly recommend Samantha Little Weddings and Events!!
My fiancé and I decided to have our wedding in South Burlington, Vermont this past July 21st 2012. Not being from that city was a big challenge for us as we needed to work with people we could really trust. Samantha Little over exceeded our expectations with her professionalism and went above and beyond her responsibilities to make sure the wedding ran as smoothly as possible. Despite her busy schedule, she was always available to answer questions and reassure us when we needed it the most. I strongly recommend her to anyone planning a wedding in the city of South Burlington or anywhere else for that matter and can guarantee that you will not regret your decision. I know I have said this already but thanks again for everything Samantha and I wish you nothing but more success in your future endeavors!!!!!!
Samantha was amazing! I could never have had such a good time at the ceremony/reception without knowing she was there taking care of everything behind the scenes. She is the consummate professional, supremely organized, yet able to command attention when needed in a quietly effective way. I worried when hiring a wedding coordinator that the person might be too overbearing. Samantha is not like that in the least: she will not take over your wedding; it's not about her. It's about you and your family, and her attention to detail helps make it the most special day possible. Two other big plusses she arranges flowers and her rates are realistic!
We were had our wedding at my aunt and uncles house. They had previously let friends use their property for a wedding and they did not have a wedding planner. A few hours before the wedding the chairs and table clothes were still on the tables the tent company had dropped off and nothing in the tent had been set up. My aunt and uncle had to set up the entire thing themselves, and missed the ceremony to do so. When they agreed to let us have our wedding at their home, their 1st request was that we had to hire a wedding planner for at least the day of coordination. I hired Samantha for the day of coordination. She was way beyond just the "day of" wedding planner. Being from MA and having our wedding in VT we were not familiar with many vendors. Samantha was able to find vendors when we were lost. We were having a cocktail party style wedding so bartenders were very important to us. She found AMAZING bartenders that made our wedding flow great! We were also able to leverage her relationships with other vendors to use her discounts. Our photobooth was a huge hit and our book of all our guests in the booth is one of our favorite keepsakes from the wedding! The day of the wedding went smooth and the little things that went wrong, I was unaware of that day because Samantha took care of it. She was a huge to help us and well worth her cost! Myself, my husband, Aunt and Uncle and our parents were all so thankful for Samantha's hard work and connections!
Samantha completely made my wedding day. She was on top of everything, and made sure our day went exactly the way we wanted it to. She was a huge comfort to me, and I was able to spend the whole day not worrying about anything except having a good time!
When Sam first started in 2010, she was the perfect sounding board for all of my wedding day concerns and worries. We hired her for day-of coordination, and I would have been a lot crazier without her!
Early on as I planned my Vermont wedding from my home in Virginia, my
maid of honor suggested we hire a Day Of Coordinator. I am very
pleased we were able to hire Samantha Little for this job. Samantha
brings experience, professionalism, and interpersonal warmth to the
job. As part of our package, we met with Samantha several months
before the wedding for consultation; she helped us imagine what the
actual day would be like and how she could help facilitate the vision
we had-- logistically and aesthetically. On the day before the
wedding, prior to the rehearsal that she directed for us, we met with
Samantha again. In this meeting we provided her with more detailed
plans for the wedding day that involved complex coordination between
ad hoc vendors. We felt completely confident in Samantha's ability to
put our plans to action and she did. On the wedding day, Samantha
directed and coordinated with gentle authority, helping everyone
understand their places, timing, and roles. Our off-beat outdoor
wedding and reception went off without a hitch. Thank you Samantha!
Samantha Little was my wedding coordinator for my wedding event on August 9, 2008. I was nervous about making the big day as fun and special for my family and friends, but also as stress-free as possible for me and my future husband. After the wedding and reception were over, we knew that choosing to have Samantha as our coordinator was the best decision and investment we could have made.
Samantha was an organized and detail-oriented person. She was prompt and professional for our pre-wedding meetings and always willing to take on additional tasks. She ensured that our rehearsal ran smoothly and efficiently. She managed a crew of more than ten service staff hired to provide the various services at our reception, from the waitstaff and chefs to the lifeguard and babysitters. With the help of this team, she prepared our lakeside reception site for our guests. She even handled the negotiations with the DJs for an extra hour of play time for a reduced fee.
I know that our wedding day would not have been stress-free without Samantha’s services. From assembling the flower girl baskets to ensuring the lighting in the tent was appropriate at all times, she kept the entire day flowing smoothly and was attentive to every detail. I highly recommend her wedding coordinator services to you.
Samantha is a great asset to any bride and groom on their wedding day. She will make sure everything goes smoothly.
I recommend the services of Samantha Little Weddings and Events to make your Wedding Day a one-of-a-kind event that will be remembered and cherished by you and all your guests for years to come. ~~ Angela www.calligraphybyangela.com 214 957 2155
