"Rachael Steacy is the reason our wedding day went off without a hitch! While I could give many examples of how she made our day beautiful, organized, fun, and stress-free, this story portrays her dedication to her clients in the very best way: I always dreamed of a white flower in my hair, and the flower that arrived that morning was already wilting and turning brown. I didn't think there was anything that could be done, so I shrugged it off and set my intention for a flower-less up-do. Rachael had worked to know me well, and, regardless of my reaction, recognized that this was important to me. She called a local florist that she works with often, and had a gorgeous white flower at my doorstep in about 20 minutes. To this day, I look at pictures and feel grateful for her thoughtfulness and detail oriented service. (And my white flower!)"

"Months before our wedding, we received some sage advice about our big day: "make sure you take some moments together during the ceremony and reception to drink it all in." Throughout the craziness of your own wedding – DIY projects, dress fittings, cake cutting, dancing, eating, speeches, more dancing – the only way you’ll be able to fully immerse yourselves in the fun is if you have a best in the business wedding planner that takes all of the stress off your shoulders. If that is what you want from your special day, then you couldn’t make a better choice for a wedding planner than Rachael Steacy.
Rachael takes the time to get to know you both, to understand your vision for the wedding, as well as to share her experiences with you. While she has innovative ideas for all styles of couples, she’ll ensure she delivers a unique experience that matches both of your personalities. Because of Rachael's attention to detail and commitment, you will be able to enjoy your big day without any hiccups. If the thought of planning your wedding seems the least bit daunting, don’t hesitate to call Rachael. You’ll be glad you did!"

"Every girl from a young age dreams about their fairy tale, once upon a time magical dream wedding! Every girl also knows exactly who the Fairy Godmother, Glinda the good witch or Wonder Woman is. If you are looking for a truly exceptional event/wedding planner; Rachael Steacy is your faith, trust and a little bit of pixie dust!!! My dream wedding completely came together because I had the help, love and support from Rachael. From day one of meeting her and going over my story board of exactly what I wanted for my wedding, I never knew that I could have all of my expectations met, and everything could flow so smoothly! She is so professional, patient, dedicated, organized, and trendy, and had so many wonderful and creative ideas that could easily work within my budget. Her guidance and knowledge helped to make hard decisions seem easy and really made everything fun!
On the day of my wedding Rachael was a breath of fresh air - she was so on top of everything: from keeping my schedule on time, to picking up anything I needed and setting up food for the wedding party, making sure my venue was coming together exactly how I was imagining, and keeping everyone in good spirits, calm and relaxed. Rachael does everything with a smile on her face - no matter what the situation or stress is, she makes it happen. I was so grateful knowing I could go through this process with such ease having her as my wedding planner, and I would recommend Rachael to all of my clients, family and friends with full confidence in the business she provide. It was such a pleasure working with her - Rachael is the BEST!!!"

"Rachael was absolutely fantastic at our wedding! She made our special day run so smoothly and beautifully. From managing divorcee parents to vendors to screaming children, she had it all under control at all times. Rachael kept us both in the moment by handling all of the details for us. She even went the extra mile with personal touches here and there that really pulled everything all together. We couldn't sing her praises enough! If you are thinking about a wedding planner, look no further, Rachael's the best of the best."
