Executive Event Planner


"I love meeting with clients for every kind of event- birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, business parties- and making their vision come to life through all elements of a party. While staying current with industry trends and making your party unique to you, I still have the experience of traditional party etiquette and know how to plan a well-executed event.  I would love to meet with you for a complimentary consultation to discuss how I can help you achieve a perfect celebration for you and your guests!"

"My wedding was the best day of my life and it literally looked like it belonged in a wedding magazine. And Sammie is one that did it all! 
The moment I got engaged, I knew I was in over my head. I started doing some of my own research and immediately felt discouraged. That is when I met with Sammie. At first, we were just looking for some advice and day-of help, but after meeting with her, I knew hiring her as a full-time wedding planner would be our best route. You often here about how stressful planning a wedding is, especially when you live in another state, but I can honestly say that I never felt that way. Thanks to Sammie of course! I was moving to Seattle in a few short months and I wanted to get as much done during the few months I had left in Minnesota so we instantly got to work! We had lots of brainstorming meetings where I would overload her with ideas from Pinterest and she would help bring me in and narrow down my choices. She survived the challenge of helping me find the perfect venue, as I was extremely picky and the venues I really liked proved to be too expensive. However, she never got frustrated with me and we ended up finding the best place in the end! She also had so many great suggestions for décor ideas that matched the theme I wanted. She was also fantastic at managing all the vendors we worked with! She would bring me choices and help me narrow down and pick the best vendor for what I needed. Her communication and organization with them was amazing. I never had to worry about anything in relation with them. I had many tell me what an awesome wedding planner I had! Sammie also controlled the budget, which was such a huge relief. If some of my ideas proved to be too expensive, she always came up with a great compromise. There wasn't anything that she wasn't able to help with. I was able to reach out to her whenever I needed to, day or night. My family questioned, at first, why we would pay to have someone plan our wedding. The day after my wedding, every one praised Sammie on the event and said it couldn't have turned out better! I will never be able to say as many thanks as Sammie deserves. Every one wants their wedding to be everything they imagined, and mine exceeded all of my expectations."
