  • My husband & I were iffy on booking a day of coordinator or not. We have never made a better decision than to book Rachel Carter. She is absolutely amazing, and a life saver. She made our wedding day go smoothly and we cannot thank her enough. She answers emails quickly, is always up to anything, and is a great person. We owe her everything! Worth every penny!!

  • Rachel was beyond helpful and resourceful the day of the wedding. I would not have made it through the day without her assistance.

  • I hired Rachel for her 2 month prior package, and from the first contact I had with her she eased my mind. I was becoming very overwhelmed with finalizing all the details and keeping everything straight. Rachel came in and organized all my vendors and contract, kept me on task with final payments, and even found details that I missed. Without her help I wouldn't have had the perfect day that I did. Her day of coordination was top notch, she kept us on schedule, and was a life saver for our whole day. Thank you for everything! I highly recommend Rachel for anyone's wedding, it was a huge piece of mind and her prices were so reasonable!

  • Rachel was always prepared and professional for our anniversary party. She helped coordinate vendors and made the day more relaxed since she helped with deliveries and setting up. She is creative and thinks out of the box when needed. Her pricing is fair and she really wants to go above and beyond to make the day run smoothly. I would recommend her for any event you may need a planner for.

  • I hired Rachel at Event Designs to do day-of coordination for my wedding day. I am so glad that I did, as she made things run incredibly smoothly and took a huge amount of stress off of me and my now-husband. She was there bright and early making sure everything was in its correct place, and acted as liaison between me and the other vendors so that I wasn't being constantly approached by people and could actually enjoy being with family and friends. Her prices were very reasonable considering the work she did and for my peace of mind, both in the time leading up to the day and on the day. Thank you Rachel!

  • I contacted Rachel at Event Designs a couple months before my mother’s 60th birthday. I knew I wanted to do something special being that it was a milestone year. My mother’s favorite movie is Gone with the wind and I knew I wanted that as the theme. From the very first conversation I had with Rachel I knew I was in good hands. She designed and created all the decorations, planned our menu, and came in the day of to set everything up. Rachel is extremely caring and because of her help, my mother was overwhelmed with joy when she saw all the decorations for her birthday. I would recommend Rachel and Event Designs for any event.

  • We hired Rachel as our day-of wedding coordinator. She was great. She emailed me about lots of detailed questions that she would need for the planning, which were also a great help for me to think about what I still need to do for the wedding. She charged very reasonably, and very flexible for the meeting time. I recommend anyone who needs a day-of to ask Rachel for help.

  • I found Event Designs through WeddingWire and reached out about day-of coordination, because I was planning from long-distance and my venue was experiencing a lot of turnover and I was getting mixed messaging. I wanted to be sure I wasn't pulling out my hair making sure everything came together on the day of. Rachel was very responsive, professional, and flexible, even when I asked her to help with strange tasks as a part of the day-of coordination agreement. She was very reasonably priced and encouraged me to reach out often. Unfortunately I was really not very good at communication and I should have provided her with more of what I was expecting as well as nuances regarding our venue and set up, especially since some was out-of-the-box (and some details at the venue changed during the last week leading up to the wedding). I don't feel comfortable responding on Quality of Service or Value because I hindered those categories by not providing or clarifying information which would h... Read more

    I am sorry you were not 100% satisfied. I pride myself on always going above and beyond for every client. There were last minute changes to the music setup, which was also being played off of an Ipod, no DJ was hired. It was found out last minute that the music was not going to be able to played from inside the room where the ceremony or reception were held, rather, it was down the hall. I agreed to coordinate with the girl who was managing the playlist by calling her on our cell phones, and had her start and stop the music as needed. Also, I was asked if I would emcee the wedding, because of no DJ. Without hesitation I agreed to do this for the couple. Last minute the bride showed up to the venue shortly before her guests and she had not finished her escort cards. I quickly jumped in without her asking me, and I helped finish the task just in time for the arrival of her guests. At the end of the night I received many great compliments for a job well done with coordinating the evening from the President of the venue, father of the bride and some guests.
