Testimonials – Praise From our Clients

Here’s what our clients are saying about The Events Department:

  • Laurie (and your staff!),

    I know this card is very delayed but we really want you to know how thankful we are for everything you did to make our wedding day so special. You were great to work with and made our lives very easy. We also thought this card was very appropriate to remind you of the world’s biggest donut board! Thank you again, and we hope to see you at STR when we come back every year for our anniversary!

    Love,

    Casey & Cody

  • Hey Girlfriend,I cannot thank you enough for an absolutely perfect wedding day.  I enjoyed every minute of it, as well as the journey you and I shared putting it together.  It was everything I had hoped for, and more. I’ve had people tell me it was the best wedding they had ever been to.  And I heard that people at the high school reunion down below at the O’Donnell Golf Club that night wanted to come up and party with us when they heard our band.  So many people have asked me about New Sensations — they were fantastic! Jack and I keep talking about how everything  was amazing! You and your staff did a terrific job. You made it seem seamless, but I know you worked hard. You wowed us and the crowd! Thanks so much for making my fairy tale wedding come true!

  • Wanted to drop you a quick note to say THANK YOU on behalf of my entire family for executing a dream wedding! It was a huge success due in large part to you, your poise and professionalism. Thank you for everything!!

  • Thank you for coordinating the day of Rachel and Ryan Foltz’s beautiful wedding at the Sherwood Country Club, May 18, 2013.  Your promptness, attention to detail, ability to move things along, and staying power through wrap-up were very much appreciated.

    Grace under pressure and a willingness to pleasantly and cooperatively flow with changes as décor and timing are tweaked before and on the day of the wedding are traits needed in an event coordinator.  Good listening skills and careful records of the families’ timeline wishes make the planning process smooth.  Understanding and accommodating the amalgamated styles of the family, even when at variance with the coordinator’s personal style, requires delicacy and good humor.  It’s not an easy assignment.

    We thank you for balancing all these demands, Peggy.  It was such a relief for us to hear that you told the groom’s parents about ten minutes after the guests left from the wedding, “Go home.  I’ve got this handled.”  I don’t know how long it took you to get everything out the door, but it was speedy.  You put in a very long day with your able assistant.

    Your dedication to doing your job with excellence is very commendable.

  • Hi Lisa –

    I really cannot thank you enough for everything this weekend and the months leading up to it. The wedding was perfect and exactly what we wanted, and the night flowed SO smoothly and easily. We got compliment after compliment from the guests about the venue and how great the party was, and so much of that comes down to you and your team who facilitated everything so beautifully and just allowed us to have fun.

    Thank you for being so easy to work with! I’m a little sad that it’s over now, but Dave and I had an amazing night that we will remember forever.
    All the best,

    Laura
