  • What can I say about Rachael? We’re kindred spirits. I loved working with her. When we were looking for a day of wedding coordinator I wasn’t expecting a sweet surprise. She also loves Halloween and I wanted to incorporate a bit of a gothic feel to our wedding. When I spoke to Rachael about some of my ideas she really put me at ease and helped me pick out some tasteful décor to create that hauntingly beautiful feel that I wanted our family and friends to appreciate. Rachael is the jack-of-all-trades! She took care of everything from making sure that all our vendors were up to date with scheduling, delivery, and any other last minute things were taken care of. She even made it out to our rehearsal dinner to talk to our immediate family and those in the bridal party to make sure things ran smoothly the day of. Rachael will make sure that your day is how you want it to be.

  • Rachael is fantastic - she's super knowledgeable, friendly, organized, and not only is she there to help you (the bride) with anything, she's there to put your family at ease too. She was a crucial part of my wedding day as she kept me calm but on time, and made everything run smoothly. She's also priced so fairly and has multiple packages for any price point. Thank you, Rachael!

  • Rachael was everything we could hope for and more. We weren’t thinking of hiring any type of planner but after thoroughly thinking and imagining how crazy the day-of would be, it only made sense to hire a day-of planner. Her bubbly personality was the perfect fit for our wedding! She was patient, helpful, reliable, and a total problem solver with her awesome tool bag. She was able to quickly fix up exposed bra straps and a fallen tux button within minutes! What we loved the most was that she worked WITH us and was super accommodating and flexible with regards to our timeline and our wants/needs for our special day. She also saved us by recommending a wonderful florist last minute. Our parents and our entire bridal party loved her and gave us glowing feedback on her. She is THE BEST vendor you could have on your wedding list. We would give 10 stars if we could. Thanks again Rachael! You are awesome

  • Rachael is an unbelievably amazing wedding coordinator. There are not enough words to fully express how much she helped us throughout the wedding process. The month by month checklist made an impossible task manageable, and made it so wedding planning was not only stress-free but also fun. She answered the endless amount of emails and contacted all our vendors leading up to our wedding. She's highly regarded in the wedding community and had so many recommendations for different vendors, some of whom gave discounts because they came Rachael recommended! She helped corral our wedding party during the rehearsal and put out fires on our actual day. Every single vendor showed up on time, the actual ceremony & reception ran on time, and everyone was fed and taken care of. Can't recommend or praise her enough, everyone commented on how wonderfully helpful she was and all our guests had a great time at our wedding because of her!!!

    Thank you so much, Sarah! You and Piotr were a joy to work with, and your wedding day was so much fun to organize and coordinate. Congratulations to you and your wonderful family. Love, laughter, and happily ever after!

  • I recently worked with Rachel on our belated wedding reception and I was very happy with her service. Not having planned an event of this magnitude before, her insights and advice were invaluable, and really gave me a sense of confidence about our event. She was outstanding in working with the venue and different vendors along the way, and on the day of the event she was just awesome. She kept everyone and everything on schedule and running smoothly, which allowed me to relax and really enjoy our party. I would highly recommend Rachel and Glass Slipper to anyone looking for event planning help! Deb F.

  • What can I say? Rachael is phenomenal! We worked with Rachael for over a year planning our Oct 2017 nuptials. Throughout the entire process, Rachael was always available to discuss vendors, decoration ideas, and anything I could possibly bother her with. lol Her ability to take my ideas and help turn them into reality is why I would recommend her to ANYONE looking for a wedding planner. She was calm when I was stressed and present when I had to be elsewhere. On the day of our wedding, I was able to enjoy my day knowing that Rachael and Shannon were out there double and triple checking every detail. Glass Slipper is exceptional in every sense of the word. Their professionalism is unmatched and their determination to ensure our wedding was wonderful immeasurable. Marcus and I thank you for everything! Brijette Aris

  • Rachael did a fantastic job helping us plan our wedding weekend! She was very thorough in explaining all the preparations we would need to make to be ready for the big day. She has a great list of vendors to work with and everyone we chose told us without being prompted that they really enjoy working with Rachael at events because she is very thoughtful of their needs and makes sure the day runs smoothly for all the participants. It's a great confidence booster when everyone involved is excited and happy to be working together to make your special day, well EXTRA SPECIAL! I highly recommend using Glass Slipper for your wedding I'm very sure you will not be disappointed.

  • How can I describe Rachael? She has a self-assured and confident nature without being overbearing. She's trustworthy, prompt, and generous with her time. She's enthusiastic and not afraid of a little DIY (in fact, she encouraged it). A few of my favorite things about working with Rachael: - She gave excellent recommendations for DJs and photographers, two areas of the whole wedding planning process that I was dreading because it just seemed so exhausting. She was spot-on with her recommendation. How? She knows her clients and she knows her vendors, and makes recommendations based not just on budget and style but personality match. She can read people well and knows who will just make that "connection". If I was to pay myself for the hours I saved by not painstakingly poring over reviews and research to find them on my own, I'd estimate it was about $1000 right there. - She went above and beyond to help us find an outdoor venue for our ceremony. Ultimately, we went with an indoor option... Read more

  • Rachael and Shannon were absolutely fabulous, and helped make our weekend perfect. From our first call with Rachael, she was there to answer any question we had or give us her expert advice. On the weekend of the wedding, having her Friday and Saturday made all of our lives so much easier! She was so on top of everything and kept everyone sane and organized. It was worth every penny having her there, and we would recommend her in a heartbeat!!

  • Rachael was amazing to work with from all the planning through the wedding. She kept us on track with planning and timelines. It was great how she confirmed with the vendors and even caught an error with our shuttle and corrected it. As a bride I felt like I didn't have to worry and could enjoy my whole day. Im sure if she could have controlled the weather she would have done so. Rachael was so prepared and organized that everything went smoothly. Whether she was running from room to room while the parties were getting ready to putting on the guys boutonniere to 2getting everyone in their places at each wedding location, Rachael was there. For a bridal party that was 20 people plus 4 children, this was no easy task. I can't thank Rachael enough for making the day amazing! I recommend her for your next event as she goes above and beyond to make your day perfect!

  • AS the groom, i was all over my wife telling her we didn't need a Wedding Planner and it was a waste of money. I told her this for months before the wedding. Man was I WRONG! I'm not one to admit when i'm wrong but here i was. I wedding went seamlessly, and without any problems what so ever. I know we didn't just "get lucky". We had Rachael. She ran around all day putting out all of our fires so we could enjoy the day. Even though our officiant was very nasty to her she took it in stride and acted very professionally. Guys, do yourself a favor, don't look at the money (even if you budget is tight, it was worth every penny) get yourself a wedding planner. Get yourself THIS wedding planner.

  • Thank God for Rachael! We decided to go with the Month/Day of Package. Rachael developed the timeline with me and distributed it to everyone at he Rehearsal! The day of the wedding she was awesome! She watched the time; she did the guys boutonnières; she helped with my bustle; she was there for every detail! Rachael absolutely saved the day when I forgot our marriage license in the hotel room! Rachael went back got the license and had it at the ceremony in time for it to be signed!! Everyone should have Rachael as their wedding planner!!!

  • After reading glowing reviews, I decided to hire Glass Slipper for my day-of coordination needs. Rachael was my main contact from the day I booked until about a month before my wedding, and she was absolutely amazing. So professional, and detail oriented. Via Skype, I was introduced to Lauren, who would be there for the rehearsal dinner and the big day itself. Lauren was nice and I was looking forward to handing her the reigns. Unfortunately when it came to Glass Slipper, I found myself disappointed. First off, I has essentially no contact with Lauren on the day of the wedding. I got emotional greeting some special guests at our rehearsal the night before and because she saw me as "distraught" decided to speak only to my bridal party. She wanted to keep me from being stressed, but as the bride, I am the only one who knows 100% of what's supposed to happen. A simple 20 minute convo on the phone would have cleared things up. There were lots of details I had planned very thoroughly... Read more

    We regret that our day-of services did not meet your expectations, Christina. We pride ourselves on excellent communication and professionalism, as our reviews will attest. As we explained, the general wedding cake rule is to order a slice for about 80% of your guest list. You had ordered approximately 1.5 slices of cake per person, and so there was much more than needed. There were also extra slices placed out for your guests to take if they wanted them. Your planner Lauren was readily available to you at the rehearsal and during the entire day-of, and she also communicated directly with your bridal party, who were specifically sent to her with information and instructions. Several issues (such as the wasp nest over the bar) were solved without troubling you during your special day, and Lauren kept everything running smoothly on schedule. We truly enjoyed working with you, and we wish you all the best for a long and joyful marriage.

  • I just want to take a moment and thank you so much for all your help during our wedding. I had no worries that day because you made everything run so smoothly. You and your assistant were great and on top of it all. From the moment you got there to the second you left, everything went so perfectly and it was nice giving up control and knowing that everything was being handled. Kile and I appreciate everything you both helped us with, and I'm sure there were more issues that arose but you were quick to fix them (things that Kile and I probably don't even know about). Rachael and Shannon, I can go on and on about how much we appreciated your help with my wedding but I think I will end it here. Thanks again for making our day so special!

    Natalie, thank you so much. Between the dancers, the food, the band, and all of the special details, your wedding was an absolute blast! It was our pleasure to help organize your special day. Love, laughter, and happily ever after!
