Weddings + Events

In addition to this little blog of mine, I help plan and coordinate weddings and events! Many people prefer planning each wedding detail from vendors to location, dresses and gifts, and prefer to not have a planner at all. However, when the big day comes, they do not want to worry about bouquet and cake arrivals, where grandparents are, and if their favorite broach isn’t forgotten at the reception — that’s where I come in.  I specialize in day-of coordination so that come the big day, all you need to do is get married and celebrate. I manage contracts, vendors, rehearsals, required photos, decor set-up and clean-up, families!, and more.

I also help plan conferences, events, and retreats. Have questions regarding layout and design? Not a problem! I can work through any budget, big or small, and will make your event beautiful, eco-friendly, and organized. I’ve worked on 200 person all-inclusive retreats, client holiday parties, and social professional gatherings.

Below are a few testimonials. I travel from New York to DC, and can even pop over to California if that suits you. If interested, please email me at asummerlifestyle@gmail.com

“One of the best decisions I made when wedding planning was hiring Summer as our day of wedding coordinator. Before the wedding day, Summer met with my fiance and me to walk through everything together, and she was exceptional at quickly getting onboard and addressing logistics we hadn’t yet considered. Most importantly, she was very empathetic to our needs and understanding complex dynamics with our guests to make sure we were prepared for anything and everything.

Come the wedding day, Summer arrived promptly on time and was very organized. Honestly, after her arrival, I didn’t have to worry about a thing for the remainder of the day because she had everything in control, balancing keeping everyone on schedule with making sure the important details were attended to. My mother and sister couldn’t speak any more highly of her after the wedding for all of her support and professionalism. Summer is more than just a joy to work with — she’s a necessary coordinator to any well-run wedding day. Thanks Summer for making our big day flawless!”

“Summer, a former colleague, was my obvious choice when looking for a day-of wedding coordinator. I had seen her manage events at work ranging from Holiday Parties to All-Staff Retreats. Her eye for detail is second to none – and she’s just the kind of person that gets things done.

On my wedding day, tons of things were deviating from the plan I had in place. For one, our caterer was 3+ hours late to the venue because a major highway was closed. And our guests were having trouble getting to the venue as well! But, Summer never lost her cool, and she kept my family and I calm throughout the entire event. She’s a bride’s perfect choice for a wedding coordinator – organized, calm, efficient, and completely absorbs any issues so the family never has to even know things went wrong.

She also has an amazing eye for design and could take a small wedding budget and make the event look like a million bucks. She offered advice throughout my planning that definitely showed her creativity and savvy in decor, events, budgeting, and more.

I would be thrilled to hire Summer for another event in the future.”
