Sweet Notes

“Planning a wedding is an arduous task and involves many decision making moments. Barbara and her team made our experience enjoyable and removed the stress of dealing with small and large details. She has a relationship with many vendors...when she calls, they act! Not only fun to work with, but we enjoyed many laughs together. I have had the pleasure of knowing Barbara for many years.......she is talented, professional and easy to work with. Hire the Verve to plan your wedding!”

“Barbara and her team were wonderful to work with. She is organized, easy to work with, and has a can do attitude. When I was looking at wedding planners, I wanted someone I could trust completely to get the work done. I interviewed quite a few people and while they were all nice, I got the sense that I would have to be following up with them constantly. Not with Barbara. I knew I could ask her something once and it would get done. She did so much for us. She figured out how and submitted all the permitting paperwork to have a second line in downtown. When we got approval, but it wasn’t to go down congress, she called them again and had it changed. Literally as I am about to get in the car to go to the church I realized I forgot to send her and the band the break music I wanted to play. She was able to work with the band to get it done not even 2 hours before the reception. I was supposed to have a lovely spring wedding. I looked up my wedding date back to the 1980’s and it had never been below the 70s. My wedding date rolls around and the high was 56 degrees. Without being asked, Barbara organized getting heaters added to the patio so my guests would not freeze and she brought my bridesmaids shawls to keep them warm during our second line. We had an awesome wedding and are so grateful to Barbara and her team for all their hard work. I would choose her again in a heartbeat and would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding planner who is organized, reliable, adaptable, and just pleasant to work with.”

“I cannot say enough good things about Barbara and her team! Kathryn and Candice did a wonderful job of caring about every little detail and making me feel so heard and cared for in the process. Barbara has so many positive and established relationships within the wedding industry in Austin, that she knows exactly who to call and who to connect with to make your wedding perfect. Everyone we worked with speaks so highly of her planning skills and effective communication! She gets the job done, and done right. The day of the wedding came and everything went so smooth, and flawless! I still have no idea if there was chaos behind the scenes, because they made everything look easy and handled it all so professionally!

As a wedding vendor myself, I have also witnessed them working from the other side of the curtain and there are no inconsistencies. This team is professional, great at communicating, and determined to put their client's wishes first. They will go to every effort to make your wedding day a dream! Can't wait to work with them again!”
