  • Over and over, on the day of our wedding and after, my wife and I kept saying to each other, "Rachel is a lifesaver!" I would recommend her a thousand times over to all of my friends. We had a very specific vision for our wedding, and wanted to have it in an unconventional venue, and yet Rachel was able to make everything go off without a hitch. Throughout the planning process, she guided and re-assured us with her expert knowledge and experience. She was there for us whenever we had a question, and she made sure we had all of our planning bases covered. In the days leading up to the wedding and on the day of, she was on point. Her confident leadership put us at ease and let us relax and enjoy our own wedding, knowing that we had nothing to worry about. She coordinated our other wedding vendors, the wedding party, guests, our family, and us. She put out fires all day (not literally, but if there was a real one, she'd put that out too) and truly went above and beyond what I'd expect a... Read more

  • Hiring Rachel as our 'month of' coordinator is hands down the best decision I've ever made! Rachel was so amazing to work with! She was kind, patient, pro-active, and is the only reason I was calm and sane that weekend. She was able to wrangle all the pieces together to create a workable schedule for everyone and directed the rehearsal so smoothly that we only needed one run-through and we were done which was awesome because it was cold and drizzly that day. She did everything from rolling away the wine barrels, scrubbing the mud off my dress after I stepped all over it, keeping my husband distracted so we could carry out the surprised entrace I had planned, to making sure everything was dropped back off to our room at the end of the night. I can't say enough good things about her and if you're considering getting a coordinator but aren't sure - just do it! Rachel will make your life sooo much easier, I promise!

  • Rachel is, without a doubt, the best thing to happen to our wedding. We could not have done it without her. From the very first phone call to the very last goodnight hug, Rachel took care of everything. She helped us find vendors, visit venues, review contracts, brainstorm ideas, cut down costs, specialize the event to be perfect to us. She coordinated vendors, she helped manage the budget, planned timelines, she talked us through the hard parts and shared in our joy through the exciting parts. On the day of, SHE MADE THE WHOLE THING HAPPEN!! Honestly, I tell every single person I know that's getting married that they need her. She is open, warm, friendly, knowledgeable, flexible, game for anything. And perhaps best of all, she truly cares about you! She wants your wedding, however it may look, to be as YOU as you want it to be, and that's something special nowadays in this crazy crazy wedding industry. She's reasonably priced and goes above and beyond for her clients - it's 100& worth... Read more

  • Working with Rachel was the best decision we made about our wedding. She is an absolute joy to work with and will put you at ease throughout the entire process. She made sure we were completely organized and, best of all, allowed us to just enjoy our wedding day and not think about any logistics. She is kind, patient, knowledgable, thorough, organized, and will ensure everything runs smoothly. We highly highly recommend her!

  • We can not recommend Rachel enough! We planned our Ithaca wedding remotely from Washington DC, and I don’t know how we would have done it without her. She helped us narrow the field of vendors to consider based on our budget. She gave us great planning documents to help us save time and stay organized, and she reviewed our vendor contracts (even finding some places where we could save money!). The month of the wedding, Rachel owned coordination among all of our vendors. She then ran our rehearsal the day before the wedding. And the day of, she set up our venue and ran the event. I can’t tell you how beautiful the day was thanks to her time and talents, and how much less stressful everything was thanks to her guidance. She made it possible for us to focus on each other the day of the wedding because Rachel was so on top of everything else! Rachel was just a Joy to work with, a friendly sounding board the whole way through, and incredibly, incredibly good at her job.

  • Rachel at Kinship and Company isn’t someone you just think about hiring, she’s someone you HAVE to hire. She delivers an unprecedented level of knowledge, organization, and over all great energy. We had very specific parameters to adhere to, and she made the entire experience effortless. Rachel gets to know her clients and is able to actualize their personal vision in an extraordinary way. I sincerely cannot say enough about her, she is a phenomenal wedding planner and human being.

  • We highly recommend Rachel! Before we even hired her, she spent a half hour on the phone with us discussing vendor options and how we could keep our wedding costs down, which was something we were very focused on. We had a pretty specific vision for our wedding, and we did a lot of work planning it. But we could not have pulled it off without Rachel. She knew our vendors and our venue at the Ithaca Farmer's Market extremely well, which made the planning experience a lot easier. She was so generous with the items that she had made or acquired over the years, and we ended up using a lot of these things for our wedding, like chalkboards for signage, seating charts, lawn games, and lanterns. All of that we would have had to buy if it weren't for her. The best thing about hiring Rachel is that you have absolutely nothing to worry about the day of the wedding. She handled everything we needed, from helping set up the event to making sure everything ran smoothly and on time, and c... Read more

  • We worked with Rachel for our wedding weekend if 200+ people, with multiple days of festivities, and it could not have gone more smoothly! During planning, Rachel had the best recommendations and she was so easy to communicate with. As we got closer to the wedding day, Rachel took over all logistics with all of our vendors (we got married at an airbnb, and had to build a wedding from scratch). She even coordinated a welcome party the day before the wedding (in addition to the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner). Everything went so smoothly, and we were able to have so much fun at our wedding. Rachel was able to perfectly execute our vision from just a few calls/emails/screen shots and make it our dream wedding! I’m having a hard time putting into words just how amazing Rachel is, but if you have the chance to work with her, I highly highly recommend it!

  • I was a burnt-out bride almost before I even started planning. Rachel took all of my half-ideas and threw together an incredible wedding. She set up the venue and made it look amazing (I still don't know how she strung up lights where she did or where all her signage came from). She handled all my vendors, even through a change of location. Seriously, there were some vendors I never even met! The guitarist just showed up, was brilliant, and left. Same for the baker. I had practically no vendor interactions at all the day of. Rachel just made everything happen, as if by magic. She was a walking, talking, one-woman oasis of calm and joy. When I needed chapstick in the middle of the reception, she had it. When I hadn't planned for coffee at the end of the night, she brought it. When I didn't have containers for the glass ceremony, she sent me options. All the vendors I worked with were excellent, but Rachel was a real stand-out. If I had to plan my wedding again, there are some things I m... Read more

  • Having Rachel coordinate was the best money we spent on our wedding. It was stress free and flawless because of her. Not to mention her calm positive attitude made everything that much more wonderful. We couldn’t have pulled it off without her!

  • If you think you can plan a wedding without Rachel at Kinship & Co, well, you’re just plain WRONG! Rachel helped us create a beautiful event with just the vibe we were after. It all went off without a hitch and that is due in LARGE part to her help. As a groom, it was wonderful to have someone easy to work with around before and during the big day, both for me AND my then-bride-to-be. Is somebody in your family difficult to deal with? Worried about your friend having too much to drink and trying to get behind the wheel? Rachel to the rescue! Forget the duct tape? The extension cord? Rachel has your back. We wholeheartedly recommend Kinship & Co.

  • We literally could not have done it without Rachel. From quelling nerves, creating a schedule, communicating with our families, all the way to the clean up on the wedding day, Rachel made the process enjoyable and calm. Especially important was her role day of, keeping us moving to where we needed to be, and keeping any issues from reaching us on our special day. I never imagined I would benefit so greatly from involving a coordinator, and will recommend Kinship & Co to every future bride I encounter. If you pay for one thing for your wedding, make it this.

  • We were really excited to work with Rachel, because she has such a good reputation among Ithaca vendors and we wanted someone who would work well with the people we hired. She provided us organizational tools in the year before the wedding, and met with us a couple times to run through things and visit the venue. She was also great with responding to emails. We hired her as a month-of coordinator, and I realize after the fact that I should have been better at clarifying that position with her. She offered to be on emails to vendors a couple weeks before the wedding, but I didn’t expect to be making almost all of the final calls two weeks and one week out. It would have been really nice if all of the vendors (rental company, venue, etc) knew further in advance that she should be patched in to any contact. I think she tried to communicate that to some, but others still seemed to think I was the best person to call for last minute details that Rachel would have been best able to answer.... Read more
