  • Rachel is an expert wedding planner/coordinator, and took excellent care of us throughout the entire wedding process. I know for a fact there are things that she took care of that we didn't realize she did at the time because everything went so smoothly. She is a professional, kind, and efficient, and I am SO happy we chose her to be a part of our day!

  • I am so grateful that I chose Rachel to be my wedding planner! Her warm and inviting demeanor makes it easy to develop genuine relationship during the planning process. During wedding planning, it is easy to feel shame that you’re not doing enough, not thinking through everything, or can’t juggle all the details; Rachel made the process of planning a wedding so peaceful and I immediately trusted her ability to juggle all the details in a professional and organized manner. Rachel’s desire to care deeply about the individual and their vision for their wedding, while also being gifted with communication and organizational skills, makes her an exceptional wedding planner that I would recommend to everyone!

  • Rachel was absolutely top-notch! I reached out to her for day-of coordination within about a month of our wedding (I know, we were a little late to the game) but she was ready to go as soon as our first call! She was on the ball and so professional while being extremely friendly and understanding! I know that some people may think that a wedding coordinator is not worth it, but TRUST ME, if anything you NEED a coordinator for your special day. One of my main worries was that I was going to be so stressed on our wedding day trying to get together last-minute details and make sure everything was set. Rachel took all of those worries away!! I did not have to think about anything other than marrying my best friend and Rachel and her amazing team played a huge role in that! I cannot thank/recommend Slauer events enough. Best. Day. Ever!!

  • Rachel is a precious gem! I worked with Rachel this past year to navigate wedding planning alongside COVID. She made us feel seen and quickly captured our vision and brought it to life. Rachel brings a sense of joy and grounding regardless of any circumstance. She was quick to offer solutions and was always one step ahead of any possible barrier. As a Type A planner, it was so comforting to know that Rachel was both detail oriented and organized. Rachel proactively checked in often as she was busy coordinating with all the vendors behind the scene. In addition, she was quick to respond to any question we had. She worked hard to ensure the month prior was smooth sailing and all the details were in place regardless of whether we were in Plan A or F. We could enjoy the final month countdown knowing our day would be a fairytale despite all the changes. Rachel was no different the day of the wedding! Her nurturing personality kept everyone calm and relaxed and the day went by without any... Read more

  • I cannot say enough great things about Rachel! From the first phone call we had I knew she was going to be great! From the first meeting til the end she never missed a beat. She would always take notes during our meetings so I didn’t have to worry about missing anything and she would send them to me afterwards to remind me of things I needed to still figure out what I wanted. We had a huge crazy change happen due to COVID where for two months we had no idea what would happen with our wedding. Rachel was always there to help guide me through everything. She made sure we knew our options and told us no matter what she would be there whether on the original day we had planned to get married or a different day. She was a huge blessing. We even ended up pushing back when we were going to decide what to do by to wait for phase two of reopening and from there found out we could have our wedding with less than 100 guests. It all worked out and Rachel made sure we were ready for any situatio... Read more

  • I cannot say enough about Rachel! I am so thankful that I hired her as our wedding planner. We had our first meeting in May 2018 for our April 2020 wedding and we all know what happened in April 2020. She has been amazing through the postponement process and she also helped us create our "elopement" for our original wedding date. She is so organized, very detailed in her work, responsive, patient and supportive. During our time together, she has had a child and moved from GA to NC and she did not miss a beat. She has also become a friend and I am going to miss our chats once we have our big wedding day. She has gone above and beyond every expectation. I wish I could give her 100 stars!

    Gray- it has been such a blast working with you and Jarrett over the last couple of years. Thank you for taking the time to write out these sweet words. I am SO incredibly excited to see you two celebrate with your friends and fam soon. The wait is going to make it that much sweeter!

She is responsive to emails, calls, and books transportation for weddings with us regularly. I would highly recommend her services to any newly engaged couple!

    Thanks so much for your sweet words, Jade! Love working with you on transportation for our couples! :)

  • I met Rachel before I got engaged, and when I found out she went into wedding planning, I knew that I needed her to be a part of mine! She has different packages available, but I went with the event coordination. Rachel made herself available for monthly check ins, but went beyond the listed services to help me find vendors and research options. I can't stress enough how professional and organized Rachel is, but what's so special about her is how kind and patient she is with all aspects of the process. There weren't any crises during the wedding itself, because she handled everything with a calm smile. I can't recommend her enough because I can't have imagined a better experience without her and her team!

  • Rachel Slauer is a master of planning! Every detail was planned and executed flawlessly while allowing us to relax and enjoy the moment. The wedding weekend was so well organized for all of the wedding party, parents and guests. She was supportive, reassuring and provided great suggestions when we needed them. I can't imagine wedding planning being any more perfect or streamlined! Rachel and her team are all you need for a beautiful, flawlessly executed wedding weekend!

  • Rachel is THE BEST. She literally made our wedding dreams come true. She answered every crazy question we had, and made sure everything went according to plan on the day. She is super calm and organized, which eased so much stress throughout the planning process. She also came up with really great ideas when we were stuck and was so accommodating to everything we wanted. She was absolutely wonderful to work with.

  • Hiring Rachel at Slauer Events as your wedding planner is the best wedding gift you can give yourself! We were just married on September 27th, 2019 and were required to have a day of coordinator per venue policy. Being a very hands on bride (type A), it was very hard to “give up control” as I thought I had everything planned out on my own- boy was I wrong! Rachel planned our entire event schedule, and seamlessly coordinated everything down to the smallest of details. She earned our complete trust! Our wedding was magical and a huge success; all our guests said it was one of the best weddings they had ever attended! Rachel coordinates and supervises all the vendor activities for you, from initial vendor contacts, to wedding day deliveries, to after the wedding pick-ups. Rachel went with us on all our visits to the venue to finalize the layout. She had an agenda and schedule for each day, which made our wedding “homework” very easy. We leaned heavily on her advice, and were e... Read more

  • Rachel was suggested to me by my (now) husband who said he went to 1st and 2nd grade with this girl who is now a wedding planner. He only knew this through her social media pages. I reached out to her, we met to discuss our vision and our wishes in a wedding planner and the rest was history. Rachel was there for ya from beginning to end. Every detail, if I had a question, I knew I could ask her for help or an opinion. She takes so much time on each of her weddings that you’d never even know she works on anybody else’s! We definitely recommend her for anybody needing help with decisions, a clearer vision or just assistance on the day of. She helped make our day the most special it could’ve been!

  • Rachel was the wedding gift I didn’t know I needed. My incredible mother-in-law knew I needed her, though. When my mother-in-law told me she had hired a wedding coordinator, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect because both my ceremony and reception venue both had mandatory day-of coordinators. I thought it may turn into a logistical mess from having too many people in charge, but boy was I wrong! Rachel is a logistical queen and was truly the glue that held the planning, ceremony, and reception together. Rachel is incredibly kind and always has a smile on her face. She is so calm that it is impossible to become a bridezilla in her presence. When we first started, I was tickled by how she took the time to get to know us and figured out what we wanted. She also worked with our schedule, which was a feat considering we live on the west coast and only came out to Atlanta at inopportune times (aka the holidays) before the wedding. She was incredibly professional and had no issues a... Read more
