From the very moment we decided to hire Tracey it was wedding planning life changing. She exudes genuine passion for her craft and ensures that her bride and groom are beyond taking care of.  Tracey’s talents really shone during the pre-planning stages. She always had our best interest in mind and made sure that we remained under budget working endlessly to find the best value and fit with our vendors. She missed no detail, from helping with hand writing EVERY guests name for the seating plan to the night before diverting all crisis when I thought my dress a) didn’t fit and b) was crooked.

Simply, Tracey gave me the ability to let my guard down and enjoy every second of the day.  Our wedding would not have went beyond perfect without her wedding day timeline – its pure mastery.  In fact it left our venue Catering Manager in detail oriented “awe” and praised her intricate “did not miss anything” schedule.  Tracey was there to save the day if anything deviated from keeping our wedding on track and maintained strict deadlines with speech lengths to get us on the dance floor exactly when we wanted!  I never would have thought I would require a wedding planner or thought financially it made sense, but it was the best investment we made and my husband, mother and bridesmaids reminded me of that many times too.

Matt & Leah Richards | Bride & Groom

Tracey was the best investment that we made for our wedding. She was thorough, professional and understood our wedding day vision from Day 1. Our wedding day was nothing short of perfect. Tracey is worth her weight in gold.
We literally did not have anything to worry about on our wedding day. Everything went so smoothly and seamlessly. We had no idea how much we actually needed her on the wedding day. If we didn’t have Tracey I can say in all confidence that it would have not been our dream day. It truly was a fairytale. Not only did we get an incredible wedding, we have got a friend for life.

Laurie Brodhagen | Mother of the Bride

My Daughter hired Tracey as her “Month of Coordinator”. I was very hesitant at first since we had planned and worked on everything ourselves…I didn’t think we needed her. I was wrong! Tracey immediately embraced my Daughter’s vision and expectations. As Mother of the Bride, I wanted to be up to my elbows in the décor and cake setup. Tracey was very professional and let me do my thing then finished the venue off impeccably! She also helped me stay on track so I could relax and enjoy getting ready with all the Girls! The ceremony was perfect. When Tracey noticed that some of our guests had not arrived … she gave us the option of starting on time or waiting… we waited! The reception was phenomenal! Tracey’s schedule of shorter speeches mixed with meal service and dancing was AMAZING!! Everyone commented saying, “I haven’t had that much fun at a party in YEARS!! And when there was a glitch…no one noticed!! The day was a WONDERFUL CELEBRATION! Even though there was a structured plan in place…it flowed very naturally. Tracey’s organizational skills in tearing down and repacking the décor are spot on… and nothing was damaged or missing. I didn’t even notice the gradual tear down.

I GUESS I WAS TOO BUSY ENJOYING MY DAUGHTER’S WEDDING!!!

I am no stranger to planning events including 3 small Weddings so I know the work and patience involved! I would definitely hire Tracey again…She was peace of mind on our Beautiful Daughter’s Wedding Day!! Tracey is worth every penny and she does it all with a genuine smile and professionalism! 🙂 If you are DIYer’s like us and you want to enjoy your Wedding but think it’s too $$ …take money out of another part of the budget and hire Tracey… nobody will miss whatever you didn’t do BUT you will ALL remember the AWESOME TIME YOU HAD!!! (and all the extra work and pressure you didn’t have to go through!!)

Susan Allen | Mother of the Bride

Tracey was our exemplary wedding planner for our daughter’s wedding.

Tracey has a wonderful combination of skills and attributes that provide brilliant planning and organization of all of the many details required while maintaining a calm disposition throughout.

She is thoughtful and very sensitive to the needs of the families and guests and specifically to the bride and bridal party.

Tracey also has a number of wonderful partnerships and provided unique suggestions for decor and supplies.

I just wish I had another reason for a wedding so I could work with Tracey again!

Allie Bull | Bride

Tracey was amazing from start to finish. She was easy and fun to work with while managing all the various whims and needs of a bride planning the wedding from the other side of the world, Spain!
She was also wonderful at dealing with and understanding my complicated and sometimes delicate family situation, which is not easy by any means.
I had great feedback from everyone at the wedding about how smoothly the day all ran and that was all down to Tracey.
I think the best compliment I could give is that people kept saying to me how calm and easy going I was the day of the wedding and that was totally down to me knowing that Tracey was handling it all exactly the way I would so I could just chill and relax and enjoy the day.
I would recommend her to anyone!

Michael Rossi & Shannon Rioux | Bride & Groom

Before I hired Tracey I truly thought I would be able to plan the wedding of my dreams on my own. However, I soon realized I needed help. I couldn’t do it on my own and needed assistance from someone who knows the industry. Words cannot express how amazing having Tracey as our wedding coordinator was. She is organized and is one step ahead of any issues that potentially might pop up. Her knowledge in the wedding industry is apparent and I would highly recommend her for your upcoming nuptials. Throwing a wedding is one of the most stressful things a couple can do but knowing I had Tracey, really put my mind at ease. I was even able to have a glass of wine and watch a movie with my soon to be hubby the week before my wedding, which I don’t think I would be able to do without Tracey.

 

Omar Ahmed & Sara Kudhair | Bride & Groom

We really are grateful to have come across Tracey. Tracey did an excellent job as our Month-of Coordinator for our wedding. She blew our expectations out the water. She was extremely: attentive, conscientious, smart and a great people person. Over time she became a sounding board, for all the nitty gritty details. Her past work experience came in handy as she knew the ins and outs of large events/catering and event planning. She always knew the right questions to ask! We have no hesitation in recommending Tracey as an excellent Wedding Planner!

When I first told my husband about Tracey wanting to step in he was all “but we’ve pretty much already done everything, is she going to be bored?” I was concerned about this as well, as I felt like I had done a lot (even had my own day-of rundown complete!), so I mentioned it and her response was basically “you’re funny, there is going to be so much to do!”

Then we had her over one night and by the time she left Evan was all “What would we do without Tracey?! Why were we trying to do all of this ourselves???” I don’t know! She brought up a lot of stuff we hadn’t thought about. Tracey is now the point of contact for the restaurant and all our vendors. Her revised day-of run-sheet is the most detailed thing I’ve ever seen. She lists absolutely every single detail we’ll need to know on the day of the wedding, it’s wonderful.

Also, she’s a bit pushier than I am (I mean that in the best way possible) so she is better dealing with the venue than I am. If they tell me we can’t do something I’m all “oh okay,” but Tracey’s all “THE BRIDE GETS WHAT THE BRIDE WANTS.” so that’s working out well. Basically she’s been invaluable. I’m so, so glad we have her. Everyone needs a Tracey!

Working with Tracey was one of the best decisions we made during the wedding planning process as she dramatically reduced our stress level leading up to the big day! From the onset, Tracey attentively listened to what we envisioned for our wedding, and made sure no detail, however big or small, was missed. From creating the day-of schedule, to finalizing timelines, confirming vendors and orchestrating our rehearsal, her professionalism, punctuality and organization enabled my husband and I to fully enjoy our incredible day knowing that we were in extremely capable hands.

 

Mike & Heather Emrich | Bride & Groom

Thank you for everything that you did to make our wedding day so amazing! Thanks to you our day was stress-free, relaxed and fun. It was so nice to enjoy the day knowing that you were taking care of every last detail. That was the best gift we could have asked for!
