I can't say enough great things about SRS Events and Ellen Head! When we initially reached out to SRS Events to inquire about their services, Stephanie was honest with us about the best package given our budget and circumstances. I was going through my first year of law school while my now-husband and I were planning our wedding. We selected the month-of plan and it was totally worth it! When we first consulted with Ellen a month before the wedding, she was so kind and understanding. She had several great suggestions and working with her long-distance was super easy, as we live in Boston, MA. Ellen was on top of her game and kept us up to speed about anything that we still needed to do in preparation for our big day. Ellen was easy to work with, flexible, and responsive to all of our questions/concerns. She was also great in managing our crazy and rambunctious wedding party (which was no easy task!). Because we don't live in Virginia, we weren't able to visit our venues before booking which made settling on decoration ideas a little difficult. We ended up making most of our decorations - everything from the flowers to the centerpieces - and eventually had everything together the night before the wedding. Ellen was willing to collect the decorations from us that night. She and her staff (Sara & Kayla) got to the venues early (like, 8:00a early because our ceremony was at 11:30a) to set up for us and it was AMAZING! We never had anything specific in mind for most of our decorations, but the girls put everything together perfectly! I couldn't have been happier! We received so many compliments about Ellen and her team - our wedding party loved her! I would absolutely recommend SRS Events, especially Ellen, to any bride and groom looking for a fantastic wedding planner.

I am so incredibly grateful for everything SRS Events did to make my wedding absolutely perfect. We hired SRS Events about two months out from our wedding to take advantage of their month and day of planning package. Ellen was INCREDIBLE. She was very knowledgeable about our venue and was familiar with most of our vendors. She was very quick to respond. She made coordinating easy by simply having us 'cc her on everything to keep her in the loop. She kept us organized, on time, and calm for the whole day and our rehearsal. She dealt with every little issue as it came up, and allowed me, my family, and all my guests to enjoy the most perfect wedding day! Ellen made set up and clean up a breeze and made sure all my vendors knew what to do and where to be. I don't know what we would have done without Ellen. I seriously needed some deodorant right before the ceremony and her assistant just whipped some out of her bag to save the day! I cannot recommend Ellen and the rest of Stephanie's team highly enough!

I would have been completely lost without Stephanie and SRS Events! Planning a wedding is a full time job and I needed help. I hired Stephanie to do month-of wedding coordination and it was a life saver. She handled timeline, vendor confirmation, setting up decor, coordinating all the vendors, cuing music and walking for the ceremony, helping with clean up, and so much more. She is a quick communicator - always responding to my many questions in no time. Knowing Stephanie was there making sure everything went smoothly was such a relief. I was able to truly enjoy my day! I could not recommend SRS Events more! Thank you Stephanie!

I absolutely can't express how wonderful it was to work with Stephanie and SRS events. My husband and I were both deployed for some time leading up to the wedding and found ourselves overwhelmed with planning. I reached out to Stephanie and she took our vision and made it a reality. She offered sound recommendations and suggestions to make our day extra special. On the big day, she was right there making sure all the final details were in place. Everything went off on schedule with no problems. We were truly lucky that we chose Stephanie!

Stephanie was amazing!! I highly recommend working with her for you special day. Stephanie is detailed oriented, accommodating, professional, eager to please and wonderful/timely with communication (phone, email, text). She quickly understood my vision and assisted me in executing it perfectly. My guests could not stop raving about the centerpieces, flow and style of my wedding - all thanks to Stephanie!

Stephanie & her team at SRS are wonderful! My wedding day went perfectly and all of the planning leading up to it help calm my nerves and left me confident my day would go smoothly! They had it all in control, including when it started to rain and Stephanie had adorable white umbrellas for us to take pictures with! Our photographer didn't even have umbrellas! We had the most wonderful day thanks to SRS!

Stephanie from SRS Events deserves credit for running a company that is consummate and well-run. She was instantly warm and responsive via email. She was our day-of-coordinator though we would have loved to have been with her throughout the full planning process. She has a keen eye for detail and will work with her staff to ensure that you have a seamless wedding day. Well recommended. And she's a good person to boot! :)

I found Stephanie and SRS on Instagram literally through liking the exact same vendor photos over the course of about 3 months. I finally went to check our SRS, made it to the website and was blown away. Gorgeous couples and weddings galore, and saw that there was a special for winter brides. After double checking the reviews on WeddingWire I was sold. I only needed a day of coordinator, but SRS has a package for a "month of" coordinator, so everyone is up to speed before the big day. Time well spent and needed for sure. Stephanie and our coordinator Sara were incredibly kind and professional throughout the days leading up to our wedding, and made sure that all questions were answered and contingency plans in place. On the day of, I forgot that it was more than just a big party because Sara had everything under control. Really appreciative of the ladies at SRS for making a dream day run as smoothly as possible! <3

I would have never survived without Stephanie. I cannot sing her praises enough. She was ever so responsive and took my fears and concerns into consideration with every email I sent her…and I sent a ton. My husband thought if there was a reasonable email limit in the contract I would have exceeded it within the first month. I never had to wait long for a response and Stephanie brought great ideas and suggestions to the entire process. She also had fantastic vendor suggestions that helped greatly. We would review her suggestions, speak to our top choices, and then she would review the contract before she sent it over for us to sign and pay and deposits. Made life so easy. And on the day of…she was flying around and everything was perfect. Could not ask for a better more genuine person to be involved in the entire process.

Planning your dream wedding is hard work and who knew how many small details go into planning such an event?! I honestly don't know how we would've put together our wedding had it not been for Stephanie and her team at SRS Events. Had it not been for her, I would've been extremely stressed out and wouldn't have been able to enjoy it as much as I did. I was so calm since I knew everything was being taken care of for me. We hired Stephanie about three months before the big day as a "Month-Of" coordinator. She made the process extremely simple, easy to understand (as this is most couple's first and only time planning a wedding!), was extremely responsive to our email correspondences, had great suggestions that supported the vision, and timely follow up with all our vendors to ensure the day ran without a hitch! Our wedding turned out so elegant and glamorous without a single hiccup. Stephanie provided unlimited emailing prior to the wedding (and she is extremely responsive!), provided tools to make the wedding planning easier, like AllSeated, contacted our vendors with details in the contracts and setup timing prior to the event, set up and tore down all our wedding decor, and even made sure the catering company packed us our meals from dinner along with a bottle of champagne, our wedding cake, and deserts to enjoy in our hotel room! It was such a great touch. Stephanie and Sara kept us on time with each event during our wedding from pictures, to toasts, to cake cutting, and the sparkler exit. We just wished it all could've lasted longer -- it was truly the best day of our lives, one we will cherish and look back on FOREVER. I would highly recommend investing in a "month-of" coordinator, SRS Events was a joy to work with and well worth the investment!

Planning a wedding from out of town was a pleasure with Stephanie helping us. This was my third wedding planning experience and by far the most enjoyable as SRS provided professional, friendly service. Stephanie was very good at giving advice when needed and excellent vendor recommendations. We highly recommend SRS Events.
SRS Events responded with the following comments:
Thank you so much, Heidi! It was such a pleasure working with you and Meredith to plan her perfect DC wedding!

I endorse Stephanie Sadowski with SRS Events with the highest recommendation! I honestly can't put into words how much I appreciated everything she did for our wedding. This is really only a minor exaggeration, but I measure time in our wedding planning process from before/after she came on board. It was truly a game-changer for me. I really only had my mom's help on things before she showed up and I can't tell you how grateful we both were to feel like we were in the hands of a true professional. Stephanie covered all the questions we had, but then flagged other things we didn't even know to ask about it. Perhaps more importantly, everything seemed to go off without a hitch on the day of. I'm sure SRS Events was working hard to make it all look seamless, but I know how much work it required. So, in short, SRS Events played an indispensable role on our special day. Hiring them was the best spent money in the whole process. Truly remarkable!
