"We were lucky enough to be Rachael’s first clients! From the first time we met her, we had nothing but confidence in her to deliver the wedding of our dreams. She worked with us every step of the way, down to the smallest details. We didn’t have to worry about anything for day of coordination. She contacted our vendors and made all the arrangements. The day couldn’t have couldn’t have gone any smoother and been more perfect. She took our ideas and turned it into a vision. It was so stress free the whole day! Rachael went above and beyond our expectations, we would recommend her a thousand times over!"

"Words cannot express the gratitude we have for Rachael. When we picked Italy as our wedding location, we truly did not know what we were getting ourselves into. Rachael was able to pull a vision from my head and bring our pencil sketches from paper to life - and it was more beautiful than we'd even imagined! She worked relentlessly, ensuring that every detail was perfect, even the details I had never thought of. Rachael is simultaneously calming and energizing and so, so damn good at what she does. There is no one else we would have rather had by our side."

"Rachael Romig is simply a stellar, creative, and extremely talented event planner! I have worked with her for two years to plan our corporate holiday party and I was so impressed with her that I recruited her as a board member for my nonprofit, through which we have also run together 3 out of 4 annual Guts and Glory, our large scale community wellness expo in Berks County.
Her high standards for delivering a polished event is unparalleled, she effortlessly sees to every detail with extreme finesse, is dedicated and organized and efficient, and never looks stressed! Her calming manner of handling dynamic issues and seeking feasible solutions when impediments and obstacles are encountered is tremendously comforting. She is careful to consider the needs of everyone and offers insightful perspectives based on a wealth of experience and expertise in the event planning and execution business.
Most importantly, she is trustworthy. Rachael spends a great deal of time listening to her clients and understanding their vision to get inspiration, before creating a timeline and organized itinerary. Our holiday parties were posh and elegant and Guts and Glory has turned into a spectacular community party that fills an entire stadium. I cannot even imagine planning an event without her wisdom, guidance, support, creativity, and passion! "

“Rachael worked with us at our wedding in 2015, and we couldn't have asked for a smoother, more pleasant experience. From the first meeting we had with her, she put us completely at ease as she walked us through pre-wedding logistics. During the months leading up to the wedding, she corresponded with us over email, responding quickly to any questions we had. It was the day of the wedding itself that Rachael's talent for working with people shone, as she kept our two hundred-person reception on schedule while tactfully stepping in when needed to give guidance. We were extremely grateful for all Rachael's help and highly recommend her.”

"Rachael committed on day one to delivering us the wedding of our dreams. Her ability to help us vision what the venue “could be” and not simply “what it is” opened up a new mindset for us to plan the wedding of our dreams. We no longer had to worry about how it was going to happen, but more so, what all did we want to happen. Her ownership over the execution of “the day” freed us from the common wedding planning stressors and allowed us to cherish the small moments. Rachael’s attention to detail during the planning phase allowed everybody to be prepared for the day of the wedding and her flexibility and presence throughout the actual day ensured any potential issue or family request was addressed immediately. Rachael offered the complete package when it came to planning the full suite of our wedding events. We have full faith she will do the same for you and make your dream a reality."

“When picking a wedding venue, it is very important to go with the venue that goes above and beyond for you. As soon as we met Rachael we knew that she would go above and beyond in order to make us have the wedding of our dreams. Rachael was so welcoming and warm from the moment we met her. When we discussed our wedding ideas with her she also gave us some ideas of her own. The days following after the tour, Rachael checked in with us via email and asked what she could do in order to help us decide on our venue. When we sat down and compared the two venues we were torn between one of the big factors that helped us decide on our venue was Rachael. Rachael made our wedding a priority from day one, we knew that if she did this before we signed with the venue she worked for then she would be amazing throughout the whole process.
Over the course of a year and half we emailed back and forth constantly, every question we had Rachael made sure to answer. As the time to our wedding came closer Rachael made sure to ease our nerves and accommodate our needs. When the headcount and seating chart were due,
Rachael worked with us when people backed out and helped us rearrange the seating chart. The week before our wedding we met with Rachael to drop off the table settings and this is when we were assured once again we picked the right venue because Rachael told us that the day before our wedding she would be there to help us set up. When we pulled up with tons of cars filled with decorations, Rachael helped us unload the decorations. While decorating Rachael helped us out a ton and we managed to get the decorating done within four hours which we thought would be impossible since we had a ton of decorations.
The day of our wedding finally came, and Rachael ensured that everything ran smooth. Rachael ran around all day making sure everything was set up appropriately and that our night was everything we dreamed of. The Monday after our wedding Rachael came to the venue to help us undecorate and pack everything up. Throughout the whole process Rachael felt like a friend or part of the family, when the wedding was over we were sad that we would not be working with her anymore.
Rachael helped us throughout our wedding so much and we are so lucky that she could help us carryout the wedding of our dreams. Rachael is the nicest, kindest, and sweetest wedding planner and we would recommend her services to anyone!”

"More often than not when people found out I used a wedding planner they had wished they did too. Especially using Rachael as a wedding planner! If you ever think you don't need a wedding planner, think again. And if you think you can go with just any wedding planner think through that again too. :)
Words cannot express my gratitude for Rachael. My wedding was PERFECT and everything I dreamed it to be. I went to her clueless about what to do. I knew somewhat what I liked (but not really) and knew what I didn’t want.
Rachael graciously took me on as a client. With the idea of a wedding in December I knew I didn’t want it to feel like Christmas, I also knew I wanted it somewhat rustic (whatever that meant). So with that idea she worked her magic and brought what I could only dream of to life. I didn’t see my reception decor until the day of and everything was stunning. Rachael took care of everything I needed and tailored everything to fit my inability to make decisions.
Rachael is a top-notch planner with an amazing eye and attention to detail. She had the ability to involve me as little or as much as I wanted throughout the entire process. She respected my input while also giving suggestions based on knowledge she has of the business.
On our wedding day I knew I had absolutely nothing to worry about because Rachael was on it; every little detail, every step of the way. I couldn't have asked for a better planner and would recommend her to anyone."

"The best wedding advice we received was “get a wedding planner or at least someone for the day of”. My husband and I thought we were smart giving ourselves two years to plan, but nothing can prepare you for wedding planning- especially the shindig we wanted.
No one can truly tell you the amount of work and effort it takes to plan a wedding until you are in the throws of it. We were three months away from our big day and our heads were spinning. We had all these decorations and ideas without knowing how to bring it all together... then we met Rachael.
Rachael was a breath of fresh air in all the chaos of wedding planning. From a couple months out to the day of our nuptials, Rachael kept us calm and on track with everything that still needed to be done. Every time we spoke on the phone or in person she was able to take all our worries away with her laid back personality and extreme attention to detail. She was able to bring all our ideas and precious planning together. Rachael has so much experience, she could come up with realistic solutions for everything we threw at her- and trust me at times we probably tested her too much!
We got married in OBX, the week in between hurricane Jose and hurricane Irma, and as you could imagine we were all a little on edge. With a house full of people and hotel filled with guests that traveled from Philadelphia to be with us on our big day, we weren’t sure if we would see the sun that week and we needed to come up with a “weather-pending” plan for wedding day. Rachael was there a few days before the wedding, and sat us down to find out what we wanted most and things that we didn’t want- she mapped out option after option without a sweat. She came to the house early to help us set up everything for the rehearsal and stayed late to decorate for the reception. She answered all my family’s questions and dealt with everything with such professionalism and tranquility, you couldn’t help but feel calm around her.
Rachael was our sanity and brought our wedding to life! And with this testimony, I want to spread that same advice we were given in the midst of our wedding planning, get a wedding planner! But not just any wedding planner, get Rachael! She is amazing- you’ll find out within a minute of meeting her!"

"Two years ago I met Rachael when I was approached to re-create an event from the past. After meeting with Rachael and explaining the event to her, I walked away knowing that she just “gets it”. She helped to develop a message and a theme that I wanted to convey and we accomplished exactly what I had in mind. I was impressed with her attention to detail, her follow through, and her ability to communicate with everyone involved to make our event a major success.
One of the many things I really liked about working with Rachael was her bubbly personality. Her advice was always excellent and as we got closer to the event I realized that I could really rely on her to implement what was needed and that made our event free from any unwanted surprises. If you going to hire an event planner I can tell you with absolute confidence that you will not find anyone better than Rachael Romig."
