  • Sarah-Jane and her team were incredible. We had a lot going on during our engagement (we unexpectedly became parents a few months in) and POR kept us on track and having fun each step of the way. The end result was an incredible celebration with over 200 people, many of whom said it was the best wedding they had ever attended. I love event planning so I wasn't sure about hiring a planner -- but it was truly the best decision we made. Sarah-Jane ensured that we could focus on the fun parts of wedding planning while she + her team handled logistics. She's an expert, and it showed. We would hire them again in a heartbeat!

  • It was such a pleasure working with Sarah-Jane and Planners on Retainer. From the get-go SJ reassured us with her insightfulness into our wants, her experience and relationships with vendors and the wedding planning process, and her willingness to reach out and keep us on task. With Planners on Retainer, we had our perfect wedding in just eight months.

  • Sarah-Jane and her team are as professional as they come, going above and beyond what is required for the bride's big day. SJ worked great with myself and all the other vendors, always making sure we were comfortable and taken care of. Great wedding planners!

  • Sarah Jane and Bria were awesome! They did everything we needed and took a lot of stress off of us in regards to planning and dealing with vendors!! We even had a little problem with menus and their team took the time to cut out the rest of the menus!! Would definitely recommend!!

  • SJ and her team have been nothing be amazing to work with!!! We originally started planning a destination wedding but had to end up canceling it and starting over within 8 months. We would not have had the wedding of our dreams or maybe a wedding at all if it was not for them. I cannot say it enough they are truly the best!!!!

    You guys are beyond fantastic! What a joy and honor to have been chosen to be part of such an amazing love story. You were simply stunning Manuela. The love between you and Justin is undeniable. Thank you again for the trust and faith in Planners on Retainer.

  • Hiring Planners on Retainer for month of coordinator services was the best decision we made during the process of planning our wedding. Sarah-Jane was very detailed and kept us on track with everything we needed to get done, down to packing our clothes for the hotel. Her day of wedding timeline kept everything running smoothly. She was always available to answer emails, text, and phone calls. I highly recommend Planners on Retainer, the value far exceeds the amount you spend for her services. Thank you Sarah-Jane for all that you and your team did to ease the stress on our big day. You can really see that she absolutely loves what she does!

  • Planners on retainer was a dream to work with. Felicia was my month of coordinator. The moment she stepped in, everything was pulled together. Don’t get me started on the actual wedding day, she was like an angel and in 1000 places at once. She helped things go seamlessly even with a very tight schedule. The communications with her and Sarah-Jane were very easy. Never was I worried during my wedding. I’m forever grateful for the organization the skill and poise of Felicia and the planners on retainer team!

    Thank you so much Nikita for the review! You and Nick are one of the sweetest couples that we had the pleasure to work with. It was such an honor to be a part of your wedding day celebrating your love and commitment with your friends and family!

  • Sarah-Jane provided all of the expertise we needed for our low key wedding. From making our custom centerpieces to staying on top of everything on the big day she was professional, dependable, and provided expertise. She also got us a great deal on our honeymoon!

  • Sarah Jane did a fabulous job on my cousin's wedding! Throughout the entire process I asked the bride how things were going and she had nothing but great things to say. She kept her on task and every T was crossed. Day of everything went so smoothly. Sarah Jane made sure everything ran on time, all the elements that the bride wanted was there and she really was able to just enjoy her wedding. Great Job!

  • Felicia did a wonderful job and we would absolutely recommend Planners on Retainer. Really helpful in making sure we had all our coordinations complete in the weeks leading up to the wedding.

  • Hello happy couples! I am the Director of Private Events at Mystic Dunes Golf Club and have been in this industry professionally for nearly 15 years. Working with hundreds of planners over the years, I have experienced my fair share of all types of planners and day-of wedding coordinators. Sarah-Jane is excellent in her field and is so easy to work with. Kind, patient, funny, active listener, and detail-oriented are just the beginning of how to describe her and how much trust you can build in her. When industry partners/vendors clash, it makes for a potentially bad experience for the wedding day. When they not only get along, but actually work TOGETHER and in tandem, the experience potential for each couple and their guests is limitless. Sarah-Jane is the one you want working for you, with you, and with the rest of your vendors and venue. I highly recommend you contacting her for a meeting so you can see for yourself. Sarah-Jane, I look forward to working with you ... Read more

  • Words alone cannot possibly express my sincere gratitude to Sarah -Jane. She has been such a blessing in my life and I’m so honored that she was apart of Brandon and I’s special day. Initially we planned to have our wedding in the D.C. area however, once our guest list exceed our intended number, SJ recommend having a destination wedding. It was the PREFECT alternative. We were able to execute our vision within budget without excluding any of our loved ones. And instead of celebrating for 5-7hours, we were able to celebrate for 4 days. Was planning a destination wedding a walk in the park? No, but SJ made the process so easy. There were things the resort staff couldn’t give us an immediate response to that SJ could based on her years of experience planning destinations weddings. She was such a wealth of knowledge, from vendor recommendations to proper wedding etiquette she always had the perfect answer. Did I mentioned how AMAZING she was when it came to accommodating our crazy s... Read more

  • This was my first time working along side Felicia and from the first email up until Erin's wedding day, it was a pleasant experience. She was very responsive and kept me up to date on all changes, which made my job easier. The wedding day went very smooth and Felicia was very professional but very friendly and calm- in this business I do not see many calm coordinators but she was confident in her role and it showed! Any client who books her will have relief knowing that every detail will be covered and presented beautifully.

  • As a bride trying to plan her wedding from a different country, I can say that Felicia and Sarah-Jane were absolute life-savers. I am living and working in Japan, and had tried for about five months to plan my wedding with only my parents' help. Not only did Planners on Retainer deal with the crazy time difference (and occasional missed meetings that happened as a result), but they took us on with a much shorter timeline than most customers probably give them. My husband, my parents, and I are forever grateful for their professionalism and gracious assistance. Due to the distance, I met Felicia for the first time on my wedding day! But she worked so wonderfully on setting everything up. Planners on Retainer helped me with budgeting, finding fantastic vendors, and all those little odds and ends that are so hard to consider when you're planning a wedding. The advice they gave was golden, and they quickly answered any questions I had. My big day was perfect thanks to this fantastic te... Read more
