I want to start this review by saying, hire SunRae Planning! Do not hesitate, do not debate it, just do it. I promise you will not be sorry. We were not sure we needed a planner. My daughter and I are pretty good at planning and are detail oriented so we thought we could do it ourselves. However, I live many states away and I did not know the area, so I felt we needed some help. We hired Jacqueline and her team to be our “day of coordinator” and we added set-up and clean-up because I knew I would be busy that day and wanted to enjoy the day. She was so much more than a day of coordinator or at least what I thought a day of coordinator would be. She gave us tip about local vendors, spreadsheets to help us stay organized and think of all the may details that go into planning a wedding, and she was very quick with email responses (which I love!) She answered all our many questions. As we got close to wedding month, we had a few Zoom calls to nail down all the details. She wanted to be sure she clearly understand my daughter’s vision for her wedding. She contacted vendors, made a layout map, coordinated timelines with my daughter…. the list goes on. But the absolutely, positively most wonderful thing she did was give us peace on the big day! And let me tell you that was not easy to do!! Why you ask? Because during the beautiful outdoor wedding, with all the beautiful decor that my daughter and sister had gathered for months, a huge storm rolled in; wind! rain! and Jacqueline and her team at Sunrae jumped into action! They moved decor, coordinated with the caterer to move inside, coordinated with the DJ and photographers. They moved chairs, picked up broken glass, and made sure the schedule went as much as planned as possible with the dances and cake cutting and a send-off, and I’m sure they did many things I will never know about. I cannot ever thank them enough for allowing to us to celebrate and have a wonderful time despite the crazy weather. So this is why I suggest you hire them. I know we are all worried about spending more money on weddings, but I’m here to tell you that SunRae is money well spent!
