  • I cannot say enough wonderful things about working with Peggy at Love on a Shoestring! She truly made my wedding and the planning process a joy. Peggy met with me several times before my wedding day and was always available for consultation via email, phone or text. Peggy helped me to coordinate my vendors for my DIY wedding and was on site for my rehearsal and wedding day. Peggy even came to the site the night before when there was an issue with my tent- her presence and advice were calming and reassuring when I was very stressed! She made me and my family feel at ease. Peggy and her assistant handled everything beautifully on my wedding day. If anything went wrong, I didn't notice/wasn't involved because Peggy handled it! I highly recommend working with Love on a Shoestring for your wedding. Thank you Peggy!

  • Peggy was a savior! I never planned on having a wedding with anyone but immediate family. One thing left to another and we were planning a wedding across the country with a growing guest list at a location that was not a traditional venue. I was overwhelmed and short on time. Peggy quickly was able to help guide me and assist in figuring what vendors and what I even needed as well as coordinating the event itself. On the day of, they monitored everything and help correct any last minute oversights we had, like not having enough of the mixers for the alcohol we provided ourselves. The wedding was a success and I have her to thank for it!

  • I have to say hiring Peggy was the best thing I did! She was so responsive and helpful offering guidance and support through the whole process. At first I wasn’t sure my budget would allow hiring a planner but her service was so inclusive

  • Peggy was amazing!! From the moment I met her up until the big day, she was always there for me. On the day of the wedding, Peggy and her husband went over and above all expectations to make my day perfect. I could not have done it without her. I would highly recommend them!

  • Peggy did a wonderful job helping us to prepare for our wedding. Although we did most of the planning and arrangements with vendors before the wedding day, Peggy was key in making sure that we stayed on track and that everything came together perfectly at the actual event. She made sure that we did not have to worry about a thing, and were able to completely enjoy our ceremony & reception. She is a warm, friendly person and a pleasure to work with! We highly recommend Peggy & Love on a Shoe String.

  • There is nothing Peggy can't do! We were at a loss for our son't wedding not being from the area. Peggy was a god send! She helped us arrange transportation, create amazing gift bags, and making connections for us with the florists and other vendors for our son's wedding welcome party at Duke Community Center. When I threw her last minute curves, she delivered! And, she even had her husband pick up a welcome party guest who arrived too late to catch our transportation. What service. I can't imagine being able to put this beautiful party on for our son and future daughter-in-law without her. She made my life easy and is worth every penny!

  • Peggy was amazing. We hired her with about a month to go before our wedding and she was absolutely spectacular. She answered all of my questions promptly, and had the industry knowledge to help guide so many last minute decisions I had to make. And she was truly a pleasure to have on site the day of the wedding. Would 100% recommend Love on A Shoe String to anyone looking for a reliable, lovely and honest day-of coordinator.

  • Peggy Hecksher, aside from being a wonderful day of coordinator, is a wonderful person. She was so supportive, kind, creative, and professional. My husband and I cannot say enough about her abilities and commitment to her brides and grooms. She is a woman who truly loves what she does and it shows in her work. Peggy was out in the rain making sure our vision came to life. She decorated our entire venue! She was attentive through out the planning process and the day of our wedding. Peggy made sure my husband and I always had drinks and time to enjoy our reception. Peggy is a wealth of knowledge and experience and is so willing to share her ideas She was always a phone call, email, or text away. I would highly recommend Love on a Shoe String for a day of coordinator. You will not be let down in the slightest.

  • Our wedding had it all. International intrigue (we were overseas and had to do everything by phone and email with Peggy), family drama (which Peggy helped us figure out the best ways to handle), a difficult wedding venue manager (that Peggy managed to win over and get her to work better with us), last minute drama (we had to find a bartender last minute after the venue we chose changed plans on us), tons of special requests (people coming from out of town looking for babysitting services, elderly relatives will special needs, and dietary restrictions that were less than standard), a small venue for the ceremony (about 30 people), a big venue for the party (almost 200 people), and a pretty disorganised bride and groom. Despite all of the challenges, Peggy was a pro through and through. She never made us feel stressed, kept us on topic, kept balls rolling in terms of the planning, troubleshooted (troubleshot?) issues as they came up, and on the day of we had not a single care in the w...

  • Peggy is amazing, and I couldn't have asked for a better day of coordinator. She was really helpful in guiding us through the wedding planning process as well. The event day went off seamlessly, if anything went wrong I never found out about it and many of our guests have proclaimed that this was the best wedding ever. Peggy and her assistant did everything from set up to clean up and really made sure that my husband and I got to live in the moment. I would recommend Love on a Shoe String to everyone!

  • I had the pleasure of working with Peggy for my September wedding and I could not be happier!!! I was originally very unsure if I wanted to spend money on a Coordinator but I can truly say that it was beyond worth itt!! With Peggy you are truly paying for peace of mind. She was absolutely amazing and took all of the stress off of my husband and I on the days leading up to the big day and the Wedding day itself. Peggy is so excellent at what she does. Because of Peggy I was able to actually enjoy every moment of my wedding and never once had to stress about details! Peggy is not only extremely knowledgable and skilled but she is a wonderful person and a pleasure to work with. Please do yourself a favor and book Peggy with Love on a Shoe String right now for your wedding! You won't regret it :)

  • We hired Peggy as our Day of Coordinator. We needed someone to keep everything running smoothly during set up, the ceremony, the reception, and cleaning up. She attended our rehearsal and helped everyone get on the same page for how the ceremony was going to run. She had some great new ideas regarding set up of the venue, and made sure everything looked how we wanted it to and took stress off of us day of by communicating with all of the other vendors. She cleaned up everything and packed it all up for us at the end of the night, so we didn't have to worry about anything. She is very personable and kind, very responsive, and sweet, putting us at ease.
