  • Rachel made our dream wedding come to life and we couldn't have done it without her! I worked with Rachel to plan my wedding in Baltimore while I was living in the Midwest, and she made it easy for me, my parents, and my now husband. She is highly responsive, thoughtful, and her vendor suggestions were AMAZING. She is knowledgeable about everything from traditions to trends, and we would have been lost without her ideas and attention to detail. She listened to exactly what I wanted and made it happen, and gave us great advice. I know that she worked extremely hard for us during the planning process and on the day of the wedding, but she made it seem easy and it really allowed us to relax and enjoy the weekend. I was nervous and stressed, but she really did help make it the best day of my life. My husband was also nervous, but two days later he was talking about when we could throw a big party again!! I am so grateful to Rachel and would highly recommend Plan It Perfect!!!!

  • Working with Rachel was a dream! I had some apprehensions about planning a wedding from afar (live in FL, wedding in MD), but Rachel made sure to be available at times when I was physically in MD as well as via phone/email when things came up throughout the planning process. Her calm and professional manner on day-of really helped keep me relaxed, even with the last minute changes due to weather. Truly, it was the best day and more amazing than I ever could have imagined and her attention to all the details did not go unnoticed.

  • Pick Rachel of Plan it Perfect. Just do it. My wedding was a mixed affair: my husband is African-America and I am Iranian-American. Neither my husband nor I are romantic in the traditional sense. I didn't grow up dreaming and planning my wedding-- it all just seemed like a huge hassle to me. I don't even enjoy GOING to weddings! So we put it off as long as we could (10+ years). But we knew how much a big, huge, wedding party meant to our parents and extended family and part of the reason we work as a couple (besides neither of us being terribly romantic) is that we prioritize our families' happiness equal to our own. And a huge wedding it would be-- we knew we were looking at a 200-300 person wedding between our families and friends (ended up being ~260). So all of this is to say that Rachel found herself planning a wedding for a couple who lived in Richmond, needed the wedding to happen in Baltimore, had a horrible ever-shifting schedule (I was finishing medical school at the time), d...

  • Rachel was a godsend for us!! My daughter and her then fiance decided in early November 2015 to get married on December 27, 2015. To say that we had little time to plan is an understatement, especially given that it was a first wedding for our family and no experience in budgeting, chosing vendors, developing a menu, etc. We also had a tight budget that got adjusted downward half way thru the planning process. But Rachel, her team and her contacts in the industry really came through for us. We had identified the venue - the Volmer Center at Cylburn Arboretum. Laurie, the manager there, recommended Rachel to us. We made an appointment for the next day and hired her on the spot. She made us feel so comfortable and did not regard our budget or timeline as an obstacle. She went to work right away - built an itemized budget, developed a timeline for the planning, identified a short list of caterers and a DJ, helped us think thru invitations and decorations. She made the appointment... Read more

  • The simplest way of putting this is that I give Rachel my highest recommendation. She is down to earth, kind, on your side, organized, professional, and always classy. My beautiful outdoor garden paradise wedding, so long planned and dreamed of, ended up falling on big old rainy stormy day in Baltimore! And yet -- Rachel just held it all together and made my Plan B even better then my Plan A. It was an awesome event in a situation that really could have been a disaster. I am so grateful to her for being such a great partner. Four other random notes -- (1) I planned on a short time line 6 months, and she was so supportive and made it happen. other people I talked to were critical and made me feel like a freak. (2) I planned from New York, where I live now, and she did a great job of being my eyes and ears on the ground. (3) She totally got my energy, and was happy to offer advice, but also got that I didn't want to feel too bridey. (4) Every other vendor I talked to and worked wit... Read more

  • Rachel and Cate at Plan it Perfect are necessary additions for the wedding day! They rocked it!! Since myself and the wedding party got ready at a different location from the venue we decided that a wedding coordinator would be needed to lessen the anxiety and stress of the day. I am so glad that Rachel and Cate were there with me throughout the day. We used their 'day of' wedding services and it was definitely worth it. They helped us at the rehearsal and made sure the actual day went smoothly by being the voice for my parents and I. Thank you again Rachel and Cate!

  • Rachel was amazing! She knew which vendors to contact to make our wedding day amazing. As one of the vendors put it, we had a vendor dream team! This was all due to Rachel's expertise. Rachel wasn't able to do the coordination for our entire wedding day, but she had one of her assistants, Natalie, step in. Natalie and Rachel's communication allowed us to have a stress-free and amazing day. Thank you, Rachel and Natalie!

  • If you are looking for a Day-of-Coordinator, & you do not go with Cate and Rachel of Plan It Perfect, you are making a big mistake. We got married at the AVAM in August 2015. We were concerned we'd have no one to tell us how to work out the day (especially since we were getting married by our friend who had just gotten ordained, so we really had no clue what we were doing), so we went on the hunt for a Day-of person. From our first meeting with Cate and Rachel, we felt at ease with their knowledge & expertise for putting on a wedding. I am the type of person who wants to control everything, & I really did not want to do that on my wedding day, so being able to trust them with running the show was a big deal; they did not disappoint. Although we had only purchased "day-of" services, they were helpful throughout the entire 8ish months of planning with any random questions I had. They were VERY responsive to calls & emails. Day-of really means Month-of with them, as they handled the walk-... Read more

  • We hired Rachel and Cate, Plan it Perfect, this past July as "day of" party planners for our daughter's wedding. It was a gift that I gave to myself, so that I could really be in the moment of the wedding day without having anything to worry about. They were AMAZING! From the first meeting, we could see how organized they were from the questions that they asked us. They ran the rehearsal the night before, which was not easy given the huge wedding party my daughter and son in law had. Rachel and Cate are two of the most capable women that I have ever met, and their help was priceless.

  • This is THE company you want to use for your wedding or special event! Cate and Rachel are professional, smart, creative and make sure all is done with exacting precision. I had such a wonderful time at my wedding this weekend because I didn't worry about a single detail. Everything was exactly as planned and how we envisioned it. Cate and Rachel made our wedding day totally stress-free. I cannot recommend them enough! These are who you want to use if you are planning an event! Thank you both for making our wedding worry-free and FUN!

  • Having a wedding planner makes the time leading to the wedding and then the wedding itself more enjoyable. BUT even more important is having wedding planners that have the ability to pivot and the relationship with vendors so they will pivot too which makes a wedding perfect under less than perfect circumstances. When we had to make significant changes to my daughter’s May 1, 2015 Baltimore wedding (47 hotel rooms and rearrange the event to end 2 ½ hours earlier) just three days before the event, the skills and contacts of Rachel Hoffberger and Cate Buscher really came into play. It was clear how well regarded they are by the different vendors ---- and that everyone, including us, had confidence that it would all come together. Thanks Rachel and Cate! Betsy Nelson

  • We used Plan It Perfect for day-of planning services for our 2015 same-sex wedding. We worked closely with Rachel Hoffberger who now feels like a friend we have known for years. I searched all over wedding wire, yelp, the knot, and google for leads. I spoke with many very qualified candidates for the job. Then as a referral from one of our other vendors we came across Rachel. I looked over her website and decided to give her a call. Rachel was beyond sweet and answered all of my questions. However a planner had not been in our original budget. We talked it over and knew that it was a must for us. There is no way I could leave all the details up to a family member or friend. I couldn’t take the joy of our party away from anyone I knew, and honestly I am not sure I’d trust them to deliver. Looking back I know we couldn’t have done it without the help of Plan It Perfect. Rachel and Cate were in two places at once, they were overseeing everything, placing escort cards, bustling dres... Read more

  • Rachel was absolutely amazing, I don't know what we would have done with out her. We hired her as a day of coordinator, but it was so much more than that. Leading up to the wedding she answered any and all of our questions quickly and didn't make me feel like any of the questions were dumb. She finalized all the vendor contracts, ran the rehearsal, took care of any number of details we never would have thought of, created a day of itinerary (we would not have been able to do with out it) and made sure the entire wedding ran perfectly. Thanks to Rachel both my mother and I were able to relax and enjoy the wedding without being stressed about details, or making sure everything went according to plan. I don't know how anyone would be able to have a wedding with out a planner, and Rachel is the best!

  • We hired Rachel of Plan it Perfect for complete wedding planning and coordination services and I have to say, it was the best money we spent on the wedding. I honestly don’t think I could have done it without her (and I definitely wouldn't want to try)! Rachel helped from beginning to end with budgeting, comparing venues, vendor recommendations (from flowers to photographers to DJs etc.) and so much more. ALL of her recommendations for vendors were spot on and saved us a lot of time and money. Rachel ensured that we were on schedule throughout the planning process and brought up many things along the way that I hadn't even considered yet. Most importantly, having Rachel there to handle all of the details, coordinate with vendors and generally make sure everything ran smoothly made the day of so much more enjoyable for us! We had a blast at our wedding and I would hire Rachel again in a second – she is a joy to work with and an expert at what she does!

  • I found Rachel a little over 2 months out, as I started freaking out about how everything would run day of. I had contacted 3 event planners and she got back in a timely manner, (one responded 2 weeks later, and one has still never responded to my inquiry). From the moment I met with Rachel, I felt like we were old friends, she is very calm and easy going which I really appreciated, as I was a little high strung at this point. Throughout the whole process I found her very flexible with everything, meeting times, even sending me kind reminders that I still owed her something. I really appreciated her quick response time and her professional calm manner throughout the whole wedding planning though wedding day. I think she is unflappable. Both the husband I and I agree that this was the most valuable wedding money spent. Working with Rachel in the planning process made me so relieved that everything would be ok. On the day of, we did not have to worry about anything. In the... Read more
