WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
I had so many friends and family tell me about how flawless our wedding day went and all of the credit goes to Ryan. She was so calm and helpful and had so many answers to questions and situations we didn’t even consider! She even took up parts of our wedding planning that was not in her contract to help us save money. Trust me, if there is one area of your wedding you truly want to invest your money into, hiring Ryan as your wedding planner is the best decision you’ll make.
Her calm demeanor and organization made us feel at ease and thankful to have her as our day-of coordinator! Ryan worked with us on a price that worked for our budget, which we were so grateful for. We did most of the planning, and only needed Ryan for day-of coordination, but she still met with us twice before the big day, including a trip out to our venue for a site visit. She ran our rehearsal and even picked up decor that needed to go to the venue the night before. If you are unsure of whether you should get a coordinator, let me tell you, get one!
Ryan made our wedding perfect. She decorated our reception venue beautifully, guided our ceremony and reception seamlessly, and made sure every issue was taken care of before I was aware there was an issue. So many of our guests said they loved our decor, the flow of our wedding, and the overall relaxed feeling. We would not have accomplished any of those things without Ryan. Ryan is truly the best and we could not have been happier with the way our wedding turned out. Not only will she make your wedding visions come true, she will be a caring friend throughout the process.
Ryan was absolutely amazing and made our wedding day perfect and stress-free! During the planning process, she would immediately respond to my panic texts and emails and made me feel instantly better. She is very generous and volunteered to stay at our reception past the time we contracted her for because our venue required it. We had tight timelines for photography/transportation that she executed flawlessly! Everything about the way she runs her business is professional and catered to each couple. She cared about every detail of our wedding and made the day absolutely PERFECT! My husband and myself have nothing but the best to say about Ryan and the incredible work she did on our wedding!
She answered every email and text promptly. Each response was always positive, clam, informative, and full of reassurance that all things would be taken care of . Her in-person presence was the same calm, collective and present. She will take care of every question or concern you may have with ease. She is there for you when you need to occasionally vent about your worries, but again, her responses are so genuine and perfect you’ll wonder why you ever thought your issue was a concern. She’s that good, you’ll see.
We had an incredible experience working with Ryan to plan our wedding. Ryan is professional, personable, and hard-working; she is very detail oriented and keeps vendors on track. She also has a wealth of knowledge and information about best practices for planning a wedding of any size, which helped us immensely. Perhaps most importantly, she genuinely cares, is available and flexible, and puts the bride and groom’s needs first. Highly recommended.
