  • Stacy is PHENOMENAL. My entire wedding day, she was my right hand woman- she checked in with me VERY frequently, just to be sure I was doing ok and she always asked if I needed anything. When it came down to me getting ready to walk down the aisle, Stacy's assistant Alex was a GOD SEND, especially when it came down the wire and the bridal party was walking toward the ceremony site. She calmed me down, reminded me to not lock my knees, and assured me that my future husband was there and ready to go! The wedding was flawless, cocktail hour flew by, and dinner was extremely well executed. One of Stacy's suggestions was to have the toasts while everyone was eating first course. A much better plan than to have toasts first thing, which the guests are usually drunk and very hungry at that very time. Stacy and the other vendors I had worked better than a well-oiled machine. I can't imagine a price to put on to have a flawless wedding. Our only regret was not hiring Stacy for the en... Read more

  • Stacy from White Orchid Weddings was a joy to work with. She helped us through every step of the planning process and made everything as easy as possible. Thank you, Stacy, for helping to bring all of our ideas and visions to life for our wedding day.

  • You don’t know how much you need Stacy until you have her. Even if you don’t want or can’t afford or think you don’t need a full on planner, you DO need a day-of coordinator, believe me. I didn’t think I needed one but ended up getting her for day of stuff to not have to worry about anything but enjoying the day & it was the best decision of my entire wedding, not exaggerating!!! She is SO helpful!! And in so many ways you don’t even realize. It’s like having a personal assistant. But better. Her value is so much more than what we paid her, honestly, what she did for us was priceless. She did so much. She created a timeline for us, like down to the minute, for the days events & a timeline to pass out to the wedding party which was great! She’s so incredibly sweet and does what you want too & doesn’t push her opinions on you, she gives you options & reminds you of deadlines & let’s you choose or will help you choose if you ask her opinion. She’s totally in your cor... Read more

  • If we had to do our wedding over again, our first decision would be to book White Orchid Weddings. Stacy is absolutely talented, sweet, efficient, detail-oriented, available, capable, and SO helpful! She is totally there for the entire process. Our day went completely smoothly all thanks to her! Without a doubt, I would never get married without a wedding planner, specifically White Orchid!!! Don't walk to book Stacy, RUN!

  • We used WOW for our 9/22 wedding. Working with Stacy was a dream. My husband and I knew when we started wedding planning that we wanted someone who would help alleviate the stress on our wedding day to ensure we could be 100% present and soak up every minute of the day. From the first time we met Stacy, we knew we were in good hands. While all of our vendors were already booked, Stacy handled all of the coordination in the weeks leading up to the wedding, allowing us to relax as our big day approached. She listened to our feedback, provided guidance and reassurance, and provided peace of mind not only for us but for my mom too! Stacy’s calm personality, attention to detail and great sense of humor helped our big day go off without a hitch. She thought of every detail, no matter how small (short a power cord? Stacy’s got it! Bridesmaid need some eyelash glue? Stacy’s on it! Mom’s Catholic guilt is keeping her from taking the flowers from the church to use at reception? Stacy wi... Read more

  • We’re so lucky to have had Stacy as our wedding planner! Throughout the whole planning process, she was there for us 100%. Stacy is someone who will listen to your wedding vision and then make it happen. She’s extremely organized and communicates effectively with not only us but our vendors as well. She made great suggestions for us along the way and worked her schedule around our needs. Having an expert really helped our stress melt away. When it came to the big day, all we had to do was relax and let Stacy take care of everything. I highly recommend Stacy as a wedding planner.

  • Stacy was an angel during my wedding planning. From the beginning to the end, she was there to help with every step of the way. More than anything, I feel like she became a great friend by the end. She doesn't just help with the planning bit but really does become like a family member during wedding planning time. I appreciate how kind and non-pushy she was. Most other wedding planners I spoke with seemed a bit aggressive but Stacy always put what the bride and groom wanted before what she thought. I am eternally grateful to Stacy and if you are thinking of hiring a wedding planner, you don't have to look any further!!

  • Stacy is friendly, warm, and caring. She paid close attention to details and kept us on track every step of the way, including giving us a timeline for planning so we could prioritize tasks. We had a really huge wedding for which the planning was a monumental task that we could not have done without her.

  • Stacy was beyond incredible! She truly went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was everything we wanted and more. What stood out to me when I met Stacy, was that she said she really wanted to help make our wedding day personable and unique to us- I loved this about her! She really took the time to get to know us and what our vision was. We felt so cared for by her. When I met her, I had most of the big vendors already booked and felt pretty organized myself, but it was such a relief to have a second pair of eyes look over contracts and keep everything organized for me! Stacy was pretty much a safety net for me, she was always there anytime I needed any advice or had any questions at all! She guided me in the right direction for the rest of the vendors I needed and was by my side through the rest of the planning process. She always checked in on me and told me what I should be doing next. When it got close to the wedding and things started to get busy, she was my go-t... Read more

  • I'm best friend of the bride and the wedding was held at my farm and I just want to say that when I first met Stacy (during planning stage) I was so impressed and by the end of the wedding night... we were all singing her praises! She was wonderful and the whole event was stunning/amazing. Highly recommended!

  • Stacy was amazing! She was so easy to work with, start to finish. The communication back and forth was always prompt and professional, yet she was very friendly and understanding. She stayed on top of everything and really tried to get my vision. In the end, she nailed it. The wedding turned out even more beautiful than I imagined and she basically took care of everything AND stayed within my budget. She suggested each of my vendors and they all exceeded my expectations! If you want planner who goes above and beyond, choose White Orchid Weddings!

  • Stacy definitely took away all the stress of the big day. I didn't have to worry about making sure vendors were ready leading up to the wedding. I never had to take time out of getting ready the day of to help any vendors get set up or go over logistics as Stacy had everything covered. Would definitely use her again for any future events.

  • We loved having Stacy as our day-of wedding coordinator, and I can't imagine our wedding without her. She's relaxed, flexible, genuine and has great intuition for knowing when to be neutral and when to offer guidance and advice. We did our best to be super organized leading up to our wedding, lining up friends to take on different tasks throughout the weekend. But no many how may helpers are available, when it comes down to it, having someone there who knows what's going on, has been in communication with all of you vendors, and can deal with last minute issues (like having no ice for a DIY bar!) is absolutely clutch. I have the feeling Stacy has coordinated all sorts of weddings, and many quite a bit fancier than ours. But leading up to our wedding she treated us like we were the most important people in her world. She's awesome, totally recommended!

  • I really didn't want to rely on my family to coordinate the vendors and set-up day of and really wanted to hire a professional. Stacy came recommended by our venue. After our first meeting I knew I was in good hands. I hired her as a day planner but she was available for questions when I hit snags on my own. Looking back my one wish is to have hired her for the whole thing, I could have save myself a lot of headaches. She takes care of business and gets what you want done, but at the same time is kind and respectful. All my other vendors loved working with her and it was wonderful not having to worry about my guests, setting up, or the event unfolding how I wanted. I was able to really enjoy every minute of the day.

  • Staci saved our Wedding from a possible disaster. Without her professionalism and planning, we would've had our ceremony and reception destroyed. Staci is a wonderful lady and a miracle worker.
