  • Peggy was wonderful from our first meeting until the day of our wedding. She went above and beyond to look into any issues that arose. She also helped to organize and execute our wedding timeline. From set-up, to shuttle bus coordination and making sure everything went smoothly on wedding day, she did a fantastic job and it was a pleasure to work with her. Our day was perfect and no one once came to me (the bride) with any issues. I highly recommend her services to ensure a smooth event. Thanks Again Peggy for helping make our wedding day perfect!

  • I highly recommend Love on a Shoe String as your wedding planner! Peggy made our Gazebo Decorations and bows from tule we gave her. She practiced the wedding group at our rehearsal dinner, for the big day. She coordinated the DJ, Phtographer, Career Staff and Bar Staff, Venue and delivery of all linens, China, glassware, etc. For the Wedding. Peggy and her Assistant set up the entire venue, favors, tables and centerpieces. Peggy and her Assistant worked the entire wedding and made sure it was flawless! I'm so glad we found Peggy! It took all the work, details and issues that arrive during the day, off of our plate! My daughter's wedding went perfect! Thank you Peggy for traveling to DE and making Deanna's Wedding perfect for her and the parents! I have already referred Peggy to a friend that is getting married!

  • We hired Peggy as our wedding day-of coordinator and she really went above and beyond for us. During the months leading up to the wedding, Peggy gave us invaluable advice as we ironed out the big picture and the little details. She acted as our proxy, faithfully relaying our wishes to vendors. On the day of our wedding, Peggy showed up early with lots of energy and was resilient as we piled task after task on her. Our only job that day, was to let go and have her take over. What a relief! She handled the peculiarities of our DIY wedding with flexibility, understanding, and excellent professionalism. We could not have asked for a better coordinator!

  • Peggy was so wonderful to work with. I'm so glad I chose her. She was helpful from the start with anything from a small question on tipping to ideas about ring bearers, decorations, dress alterations. She was available to me by phone, text and email. So convenient. On the day of she was priceless. She kept the kids in the bridal party on track and organized. She was good at orchestrating. She kept everything under control and took care of any problem with the other vendors. (If there were any I didn't know about it.) It was just what I needed. She stayed until the end and wrapped it all up for us including loading gifts and decorations into cars. We are very happy with her service.

  • About a year ago I was reading reviews to help find my sister a wedding planner. I got in touch with Peggy and found her to be calming, decisive, organized and thoughtful. And that was from one conversation! I knew she was the right person for the job. Peggy helped guide my sister through the process of planning a logistically complex, DIY, "simple" yet sophisticated wedding. She was a sounding board and helped put my sister at ease on numerous occasions. As the wedding approached, Peggy was invaluable with every problem or emergency that arose, helping to keep things in perspective and/or on track. Only she knows the secret to keeping my Type A personality sister calm and sane during this process (thank you, Peggy). On the day of the wedding, Peggy was a gift. When I walked into the reception room and saw everything that we had spent months planning perfectly executed, it brought tears to my eyes (and I didn't even cry during the ceremony)! Peggy made the day seamless and s... Read more

  • I knew from the moment we were engaged that I was going to need a wedding coordinator. My mother was not convinced, until the day of the wedding. She was flabbergasted by Peggy's organization skills, her ability to artfully carry out my vision for the wedding decor and her commitment to seamless transitions from set up, ceremony, cocktails, dinner, dancing and clean up in one time-constrained venue. She did all of this with professionalism, grace and calmness. Her warmness came through to several guests who weren’t sure who she was but said “she is so sweet” and “who was that helpful, smiling woman?” I’ve been to weddings where the wedding planner/coordinator was overbearing and commanding. That was not Peggy! She was constantly smiling and directing with a genuine kindness. During the wedding, she would gently inform us when we were late, or on time, and what the next step would be. That was so helpful! Leading up to the wedding, I appreciated Peggy’s occasional chec... Read more

  • We had some big ideas for my daughter’s wedding at The Stone Barn and it became clear that it would be impossible to pull it off without help. We originally met Peggy when she worked at The Stone Barn. When I saw that she had begun her own business, we asked her to be our “day of” wedding coordinator. We met with Peggy about 5 months before the wedding to reconnect and go over our ideas. She understood our needs, she embraced the Oktoberfest Wedding theme and provided all of the encouragement and support we would need right up through the wedding weekend. I thought a “day of” coordinator would be limited in participation. However, Peggy was with us when we met with the Stone Barn to go over menu selections and details. She provided suggestions when our baker suddenly went out of business and she contacted all of the vendors to confirm details. Peggy was a constant support for my daughter and me – available by phone and email. When the hairstylist had emergency s... Read more

  • Peggy is a terrific wedding coordinator. Not only is she warm, caring and friendly, but she is extremely responsive, professional and will do the necessary work it takes to get what her brides want. She is experiences and knowledgeable, but also willing to try new and different ideas out. She understands the many details a bride needs to think about leading up to her special day and she makes everything as easy as possible for you. She made me feel like I was the most important bride in the world and remembered even the smallest details about my vision for my wedding. I highly recommend her as a coordinator. I would do it all over again with Peggy by my side!

  • Peggy was an excellent coordinator. She helped us with everything from start to finish. She took her time to help us decide on many of the important details of our special day. She started working with us from the time we set our wedding date right up to the wedding day itself. We even have kept in contact with Peggy after the wedding. She contacted us to ask us about our honeymoon and how we were settling in to married life. Overall, Peggy is an excellent coordinator and anyone would be lucky to have her as a wedding coordinator to help you plan your special day. She treats each bride like it is the only bride she has and gives her undivided attention.

  • I found Peggy on a wedding vendor website. I chose her based off her location and the positive reviews from other brides that had Peggy as their coordinator. We planned on having a big wedding in the Fall but plans changed once my church was set to close and my grandmother became ill. So we pushed the wedding up by 4 months and decided 3 weeks before that it would be a good idea to have a coordinator even though we were having a much smaller wedding. Peggy was readily available and we met days later. She never was worried about the time frame that she had to work with and listened to all my ideas, no matter how crazy they were. Peggy also gave a lot of advice based off her years experience doing weddings and I was very thankful for that. It felt good not having to worry about the details because I had so much trust in Peggy and of course she did not let me down. Our day went beautiful and without incident. Peggy wore many hats during our wedding weekend from coordinator to our maitre d... Read more
