I truly can't put into words just how thankful I am that I booked Rachael for my wedding! She was incredibly helpful and I don't know how we could have done it without her. From day one she was so fun to be around, kind, patient, thoughtful and always went above and beyond. We always felt like she cared so much about our wedding and about us as people. She adapted to our needs and brought us amazing ideas, connected us to special vendors that we loved, and handled so many tasks with professionalism and patience even when our plans majorly changed. On the actual wedding day, I was so calm because I knew everything was in good hands with Rachael. Everything went so smoothly and she not only kept everything organized but helped gracefully adapt our timeline when we wanted extra time for cocktail hour and was never pushy or stressed. Rachael's thoughtfulness, eye for detail, willingness to get to know you and what you need, creative vision, and kind personality make her the perfect event planner/coordinator/designer. I'm so thankful she made our wedding so much better and less stressful than it would have been without her. Looking back I wish we booked her so much sooner and I would recommend her to anyone planning an event (big or small) in a heartbeat!

Rachael was not only my wedding planner but ended up becoming an incredible friend in the process. Planning a wedding is hard and Rachael kept us in the loop on everything regarding vendors and design and NAILED our wedding. The best compliment we got was “your wedding was so fun because it wasn’t a cookie-cutter wedding” and that’s all thanks to Rachael. She is responsive, articulate, knows the industry, won't try to make you spend a fortune, and is just fantastic. From the day we hired her, she knew every question to ask and what our style was. From there she gave us various design boards to choose from or mix and match from. She worked with all of our vendors, which was a HUGE help since we were planning our wedding from Dallas. She was tremendous in handling a family member who challenged and questioned a lot of what we were doing and made sure they were quiet and didn’t try to take the attention away on our day. As the wedding got closer, she ran through the day of the event with us and each vendor, was there to answer any questions, helped us determine a good menu, and honestly just took away any issues or problems that came up. What's more, she was there for us on the day of the wedding, providing us encouragement, support, and just overall happiness. Part of feeling sad after your wedding is that it’s a huge high and suddenly all over and we personally feel sad that we don’t get to plan with Rachael anymore. She is an epic and talented wedding planner and will make your day more special than you could ever imagine.

Originally, I didn't even think of hiring a wedding planner. But I am so thankful I did. The whole process with Rachael was easy. I never felt stressed out in the slightest bit she went above and beyond for me and my wants/needs. She helped me work around my budget and did more than asked! I couldnt be more thanful for her and for making our day the most pefect day ever! Do not hesitate on the decision of hiring a wedding planner. You wont regret it. Also being a photographer from experience in the wedding industry I have seen many bad wedding planners and it can truly ruin the bride and grooms whole day. So that being said make the right choice and go with Rachael!

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. You need her, trust me!

Over the past few months I’ve been thinking about how lucky and thankful I am that I was able to get married and have the wedding of my dreams before coronavirus really hit.  But I also look back and think that if anyone could have helped me work through the current climate, develop a more intimate guest list (and at 60 guests we were already quite intimate) and cater to the needs of the current state of things, if would have been Rachael and her team.  She had really thought of everything, and worked with us throughout the entire process to make sure all our needs were met.  There is no doubt in my mind Rachael could have planned the most beautiful, social distance approved, wedding for our families, albeit a smaller number, to enjoy.

Rachael does amazing work. From the minute we met her till the day of our wedding, Rachael was always professional, easy to communicate with and overall an absolute pleasure to work with. Her sweet demeanor made our wedding planning stress free and she made our wedding day go off without a hitch!! Our wedding day was so beautiful and Rachaell was a big part of making the day so special!

Working with Rachael was an absolute joy from start to finish! From the very first moment that we met her, she was warm and approachable. Rachael listened to what Rick and I wanted and was able to help us take our wedding vision and make it a reality. She was always available when we needed her and has great organizational skills that kept us on track leading up to the big day. Rachael helped us get in contact with different vendors and helped them organize timelines for our wedding day. On our wedding day, she ran everything exactly how we had spoken about, so that my husband and I could just relax and enjoy! Even after the wedding was over, she made sure that we had everything that we needed and had to take home. She even boxed up some of our wedding cake and brought it to our hotel suite so that we had a late night snack after the wedding! I can’t say enough glowing comments about her and how she helped us have the perfect wedding. If we had to do it all again, we would 100% pick her to be our wedding planner!

Rachael's attention to detail and creative approach added so much value to our wedding day experience! She was hands-on, flexible, full of ideas, and understood the type of environment we wanted for our wedding reception. We feel so fortunate to have worked with Rachael!
