  • 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 :)

  • Peg was awesome! She made sure the centerpieces and decorations were where they were supposed to be and ran the schedule for the day like clockwork. I loved her own little decorating touches also. She was very helpful giving the bride and groom a third person to talk to about their event. Peg was very familiar with our venue (The Old Mill in Rose Valley) and came recommended. We hired her as a day of planner and we were able to call her anytime with questions prior to the event. So glad I chose her! It was so nice getting hair and makeup done at the hotel while Peggy was setting up at the venue. Totally worth the price. Would not hesitate to choose her again!

  • Look no further than Peggy at Love on a Shoe String. Initially, I was skeptical about hiring any planner thinking I'd be able to execute an elaborate wedding in 5 weeks, but I'm glad my husband (yay!) and I went with our gut after speaking with Peggy and got her involved. Hiring her was the single best decision we could've made, as it lead to other great decisions that led to a flawlessly executed ceremony and reception. Peggy has charm; she is organized, is attentive, will vouch for your interests with vendors, will be available via phone (and texts and email). You'll realize the value of her work as your big day nears: she'll put you at ease because you'll know that she is working diligently with anyone and everyone involved: the florist, the musicians, the venue, etc. During the day of the ceremony, Peggy (and her terrific and attentive husband Otto) will be invaluable...she'll be hands-on, but not intrusive; she'll take your directions and execute your desires quickly, surrept...

  • It was an absolute pleasure to work with you. You made everything run smoothly, and there was nothing we had to worry about on the day of our wedding. We received so many compliments about how things went, and I know it wouldn't have been the same without you. Thank you so much for everything!

  • Love on a Shoestring was easily the best investment we made. After finding out only a few weeks before our wedding that our venue coordinator wouldn't take care of day-of tasks like decorating, working with vendors, transitioning our place card table to a dessert table, etc., we hired Peggy of Love on a Shoestring. Though we came to her at the last minute and she typically works with brides and grooms throughout the planning process, she met with us to get up to speed on our plans, gave us great advice on some important questions we had, and made us feel very at ease. On our wedding day, Peggy professionally worked with all of our vendors to ensure that everything went smoothly, expertly decorated our venue for us (despite unexpected rain and changed plans because of it!) and went so far as to pack up a van with our belongings at the end of the night (our venue required we remove everything from the building by 11 p.m.) She even recruited her husband, Otto, to lend extra help. She was ... Read more

  • I can't say enough about Peggy! I hired Peggy fairly last-minute because of some stressful changes at my venue and she made everything stress free and exciting. I wish I'd have hired her earlier on as I'm sure it would have made the entire experience easier! I highly recommend her. She is kind, calming, and organized and took all my worries away so I could have fun on the wedding day!

  • Peggy was terrific! She helped us find the exactly perfect spot for our wedding and find really talented and reasonably priced vendors. Peggy was there for us throughout the process, cheering us on and always eager to meet in person. Also, Peggy is genuinely lovely, really caring, and truly does this because she loves helping couples with making their wedding wonderful.
