Kind Words

Thank you to all of our wonderful clients and vendors.

 

"Rachael was awesome to work with. She brought our vision to life and was so patient with us throughout the whole process. The flowers came out beautifully! I would highly recommend her for any wedding." -Dana, Bride

"Rachael came referred to us by our wedding planner, and I could not have been more pleased with the wedding florals! We were planning our Nashville wedding from Texas, and other than our budget and a few Pinterest ideas, didn't give much for Rachael to go on. She worked very closely with our planner and needless to say, every element of her floral design west above and beyond our expectations...and at an unbelievable cost! On the day of the wedding, delivery and execution were flawless; I'm still dreaming of our hanging arch. I cannot recommend Rachael Ann's enough!" -Jill, Bride

"I loved the ease of working with Rachael. We were able to communicate easily by email and phone. I sent her a few pictures and the flowers for my wedding were PERFECT! I do not think anyone else could have please me more for my flowers. Thank you for making my day beautiful with that little splash of color from the flowers." -Kacey, Bride

"Rachael is amazing! We worked with her almost a year planning a large wedding for 250 plus guests and she delivered in every aspect. She was efficient, dependable, and always accommodating. We gave her a vision and she delivered! She was also our florist and she exceeded every expectation. When I walked into our venue at Noah Liff and saw the reception area I cried because it was stunning and absolutely gorgeous. She captured every detail we had discussed over the past year. It looked like something out of a magazine or what you would see on TV! If you are looking for a great planner or floral designer, Rachael is your girl!! Her prices are extremely reasonable for planning and floral. Rachael, I will be forever grateful for making Hannah and Tyler's dreams all come true on their wedding day and thanks for all your hard work and the pride you take in everything that you do. The flow of the day at the church and reception was flawless thanks to your detailed itinerary and staying on top of everything that was going on. Everyone was in awe of the reception and said it was the most beautiful reception they ever attended and the floral, tables, and cake were amazing. Rachael designed the flowers on the cake and it was a show stopper! I am not the easiest mom to please and have a hard time letting someone else do everything and Rachael kept telling me to trust her and so glad I did!!!! When I woke up the morning after the wedding and I ask myself and my daughter the question, what would you have done differently the answer from both of us was absolutely nothing and I know then that Rachael delivered everything she promised!!! We love you Rachael!!!! -Shawn, Mother of the Bride

"I can't recommend Rachael enough! I was impressed with her from day one. She was always very easy to get in touch with when I had questions and I felt like she really listened. Because I am pretty Type A and has a trailer full of decorations for her to work with on the day of the wedding, I was a little nervous to pass my planning onto someone else, but Rachael completely exceeded my expectations. She brought my Pinterest boards to life. It was just what I had envisioned. Everyone kept commenting on how great she was. We couldn't have asked for a better coordinator!" -Kayla, Bride

"We loved having Rachael as our wedding planner and floral designer! She walked with us month by month to ensure everything was perfect for our big day. From the most daunting parts of planning to the smallest details, Rachael is able to help with it all. She is a wonderful planner and person who truly cares what the bride and groom want and will go above and beyond to make your dreams a reality." -Autumn, Bride

"I utilized Rachael and her company to coordinate our wedding day and do all of the floral arrangements. I could not have been happier with her work and definitely could not have pulled it off without her. Rachael was incredibly organized and knowledgeable about weddings and all that they entail. She made the entire experience stress-free which allowed me to focus on walking down the aisle and marrying my best friend. I trusted her to make everything look perfect and beautiful, and was amazed at the outcome. I could not recommend Rachael enough; she was great to work with!" -Alicia, Bride

"I am so thankful for Rachael! She did such a great job making sure everyone was on the same page and everything was taken care of. I really felt like I was able to enjoy my wedding with no worries thanks to her." -Tori, Bride

"Rachael was amazing! I spent every day leading up to our wedding making visions of what it would be like...She brought those visions to life! Communication is key when you're planning anything and I knew every email full of questions would be answered quickly which put my mind little more at ease! She is incredibly professional and handled everything with my vendors from beginning to end! I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Rachael! Hiring a wedding coordinator was one of the things I was worried about and I'm so glad we found her! Thanks for an absolutely AMAZING day!" -Avery, Bride

"Rachael did an outstanding job coordinating our daughter, Kelly's, wedding at Saddle Woods Farm in May.  We had 165 guests and many told me how impressed they were by the pacing of the wedding.  That was all due to Rachael.  She worked flawlessly with all of our vendors.  Of all the money I spent on the wedding, I thought Rachael was the best value.  Like most things, you will probably be able to find someone less expensive and I know you find more expensive coordinators but I think you would have to pay A LOT more to get better results.  Rachael gets my highest recommendation." -Kevin, Father of the Bride

"Rachael did a fantastic job coordinating our wedding at Saddle Woods Farm in May 2016. Saddle Woods Farm is an absolutely gorgeous venue but offers no additional services onsite so it was up to us to think through every little detail and coordinate all the vendors which is where Rachael was so helpful. I had in mind to interview several wedding coordinators, but when I met Rachael I didn't interview any other candidates-I knew Rachael was going to be a good fit and great to work with. She is kind, open, thoughtful and understands what needs to be done. Her pricing is very reasonable and when the wedding was over my family and I both agreed she was definitely the best value! She is well connected in the industry and is building quite a positive reputation for herself and her brand. This was the first wedding for my family and now husbands family so naturally we both had a lot of questions and Rachael helped walk us through the process. My parents live out of state, and when they came to visit one weekend, Rachael took the time to meet with them and she helped explain the process to them.  She even created a space plan so we could see what the layout of the barn would be and where all the tables would be placed. Rachael also did a fantastic job communicating with all the vendors the two weeks before my wedding so they didn't reach out to me directly which was much appreciated! Rachael and I collaborated on a timeline and when the day came everything went SO smoothly! We received multiple comments from guests and several other vendors that the pacing of our wedding was one of the best they've seen. Additionally, Rachael did all of our flowers for our wedding. She charged for the cost of the flowers and then a minimal fee to design them. I sent her several pictures I liked of flower designs for the table and bouquets and she was able to bring my vision to life! One of my favorite parts of the wedding was the flowers were just so gorgeous and exactly what I had in mind! I am so thankful we chose Rachael to be our florist as well-she is quite talented and you can't beat the pricing-especially compared to other florists in Nashville! All in all, I would absolutely recommend Rachael Vacek-she is extremely capable, kind, sweet and fun to work with! She made our wedding day go off without a hitch and we are forever grateful!" -Kelly, Bride

"From the very first meeting to our actual wedding day, Rachael was a joy to work with.  She listened to all the ideas I had and had great ideas herself. She was determined to make the day exactly how I envisioned it.  I had many questions throughout my wedding journey and plenty of changes as well.  My emails never went unanswered and she responded very quickly.  She is very organized and passionate about what she does.  I would recommend Rachael as a wedding coordinator and florist.  She dedicates so much time to her clients and takes pride in her floral design.  The arrangements on my wedding day were beautiful and even more than I envisioned.  Thank you Rachael for making my wedding day look like a fairytale." -Kristen, Bride

"Planning Mark and Sarah's rehearsal dinner was so easy to do with them in Virginia because of you. You were so sweet to meet with me and toss ideas back and forth. You saw the vision I had and it was done exactly how we had discussed right down to the different table signs and place cards. The flowers gave that feminine touch with all the dark wood. I give you 5 stars because YOU ARE THAT GREAT!!! I had so many people tell me it was the best they had been to, so relaxed, and good food. This was because I had you take the worries, so that I could enjoy the party. Again thank you for such awesome planning and execution of something that was very important to me." -Anne, Mother of the Groom

"I cannot recommend Rachael enough. She is AMAZING. I'm a bit type A, very detail-oriented person, so I was nervous about handing over my vision to someone else to execute. Rachael exceeded all my expectations. She is incredibly quick to respond, she thinks of things you won't even have thought about. She understood my vision, took on my copious notes about what I wanted and where I wanted things and executed flawlessly. And she is so affordable! Weddings are so incredibly expensive, we didn't have a huge budget for a day-of coordinator, but she was invaluable to us. Even if you are on a budget, find some wiggle room to bring Rachael on as your planner or coordinator, you will not regret it." -Sarah, Bride

"Rachael was a great help!  We had previously selected out vendors, and hired Rachael as a day-of coordinator to help ensure that our rehearsal dinner and wedding day would go smoothly.  Rachael was responsive, kind, and easy to get along with.  As an out of town bride, she made my life easier by allowing me to mail things to her early on that she stored for the wedding.  Rachael coordinated with our vendors and made sure that everyone was where they needed to be when they needed to be there.  She got along with all of our vendors.  Rachael went above and beyond to help with anything I needed-be it answering a question or picking up balloons. Rachael charges a fair price, always has a smile on her face and is easy to work with!" -Elana, Bride

"I absolutely loved working with Rachael on my flowers! She was extremely patient with me as well as very key on detail. Every five seconds I would be asking her new questions and changing my ideas, but at the end she created something far beyond what I expected! Absolutely love her beautiful work!" -Madyson, Bride

"We were thrilled with our wonderful wedding weekend! Thank you for making it a beautiful setting.  Mollie loved the bouquets and table decoration.  I want you to know how much we appreciate all you did for us!" -Sara, Mother of the Groom

"I feel so fortunate that I ran into Rachael while touring our wedding venue.  It must have been fate because I had been struggling to find someone to trust with our wedding flowers.  She openly communicated with me throughout the entire planning process, and even checked in a month before to make sure I didn't want any last minute changes.  Due to the fact that the flowers are seasonal, I appreciate that she kept our budget in mind when suggesting possible substitutes that would still give us that look we were after.  Our wedding day flowers ended up being exactly what we wanted! If you want someone who takes pride in their work and will work hard to deliver what you want, I recommend you to contact Rachael!" -Amanda, Bride

"Using Rachael Ann's Event Design was the best wedding decision we made! My husband and I cannot thank Rachael enough for making our day absolutely perfect and stress-free. She helped us stay organized from the very beginning. She made time to meet up with me often to discuss ideas, answer questions, and gave us a lot of great suggestions. She was always available to answer my texts and emails in a timely manner. We also used Rachael for our floral and she did amazing! I told her exactly what we wanted and they turned out perfect. We received many compliments from friends and family on how beautiful our wedding was and how well it was decorated. On the day of the wedding, I had nothing to worry about at all. Rachael made sure everything looked exactly how we wanted and worked hard the entire day. She was extremely helpful in assisting the bridal party, photographer, DJ, etc. on where to go and when and made sure we always had a drink in our hands:)  I will truly miss working with her and would highly recommend her to anyone!"- Kayla, Bride

"I am not sure I could have asked for a better overall experience! From the first day we inquired about the services, Rachael was nothing but helpful. We had a lot of twists and turns in five weeks but I can honestly say everything was perfect! I don't think I could have imagined anything prettier! I also received so many compliments on the flower arrangements! It was overall a wonderful experience!"- Allison, Bride

"We have discussed many times in the days after the wedding how we managed to pull off a wedding in four weeks that looked like it took six months of planning! Rachael is truly amazing with your organization and preparation!"- Melanie, Mother of the Bride

"Rachael made our wedding absolutely perfect and seamless.  All our flowers were gorgeous, she truly has a natural gift for floral design!  She was organized, professional, and approached everything with a sense of urgency.  As the bride, it is always hard to trust someone else to take your ideas and translate them into something tangible, but she made everything come to life and the entire process effortless.  On the day of our wedding, we were able to take it all in and enjoy the day without having to worry about any of the details.  We would recommend Rachael to any bride or hostess that is looking for help with coordinating, floral design, or turning their dreams into reality." -Morgan and Jacob, Bride & Groom
