 Your Dream Event...


Your day deserves

the best!

RD Events & Design offers a variety of planning packages from full service event planning to day of, weekend of, or month of coordination.


I don't even have to words to express how much Rachael at RD Events & Design SAVED my wedding! I went into the wedding planning experience with no idea of what to expect and as the date was a couple months out, I started to realize that I was in waayyy over my head. My wedding was 250 plus people at a DIY venue. I had all of my vendors booked but started to realize that I had no idea who would organize them the day of, or how to create a timeline of events, or run a rehearsal or any of it! Even though I booked Rachael for day-of coordination, she met with me multiple times to do a walkthrough of the space and was in constant contact with me in the weeks leading up the wedding. I was delusional if I thought that I could have pulled this off without her! She was assertive and organized with my vendors, advocating for my needs as a bride, she created a detailed timeline for my huge bridal party and she adapted LAST MINUTE when the entire ceremony had to go from outside to inside because of torrential rain ( which she tried to warn me might happen but I was in denial). In the face of all my freakouts she stayed upbeat, positive and calm. I'm actually going to miss being in contact with her because she was such a comfort in the last couple of weeks and I feel like I'm saying goodbye to a friend! If you are on the line about hiring a coordinator do yourself a BIG favor and hire Rachael Demling. She is superhuman.
