It has taken me a few months to write this review because I literally could not put in to words how incredible, perfect and wonderful Jeanne Stark was as our wedding planner. When we first got engaged ... Read more and were searching for our own wedding planner we would read reviews and not believe the ones that were over the top praise – how could someone be that good? (Maybe that was the jaded New Yorkers in us talking, but we were always skeptical.) Brides reading this review – believe me! Jeanne Stark and her team ARE THAT GOOD! Jeanne expertly handled every single detail for our 300 person wedding weekend with patience, thoughtfulness and foresight. She came up with incredible ideas to make our destination wedding exactly what we wanted, and anticipated our needs, solved our problems and made sure everything ran smoothly. Jeanne was an absolute joy to work with and we loved every time we got to meet with her over the course of our planning. She was incredible over the entire weekend, made my husband, parents, in laws and everyone who met her feel calm and relaxed all weekend, and made sure that not a single thing went wrong. I enjoyed every second of our wedding weekend, and that is all thanks to the hard work that Jeanne did. She assembled an all star team of vendors for us to work with, negotiated our contracts and managed everyone both in advance and on the day of, and made our venue look perfect (even going so far as to bring her husband in to do some DIY construction on the site the week before!). She also helped manage our budget and keep track of of our expenses. It was a huge plus that she knows everyone in the Rhinbeck area and everyone trusts/loves working with her, so we had no problem getting exactly what we wanted for the weekend. I truthfully cannot say a bad thing about our experience with Jeanne – I only wish we could do it again. Do yourself a HUGE favor and hire Jeanne to plan your wedding – it will absolutely be the best decision you make!

My wife, Julie, and I hired HVC and specifically Jeanne Stark to coordinate our wedding at the Basilica in Hudson, NY. Now that our wedding has come and gone, I can say confidently that Jeanne was the ... Read more most instrumental and valuable vendor that we hired. She took our vision, which started off with a deposit at a blank-canvas venue, and helped to make it a reality. Jeanne's experience at the Basilica and specific knowledge of Hudson Valley vendors made it possible for a couple from NYC to plan a wedding 2.5 hrs north and never feel overwhelmed or out of touch. You want something done? Working together for over a year, Jeanne was always available to schedule a call to address concerns, even when she was in the midst of busy parts of the wedding season and she had other clients to attend to. Jeanne listened to every one of our concerns and when our weekend came, our 220 person wedding went off without a hitch; every last detail was accounted for. Jeanne and her staff went above and beyond to ensure that our wedding was as special as it could be. I cannot recommend Jeanne and HVC enough.

Sandra is incredible!! Highly recommend!
When we started planning our wedding, we didn’t think we needed a coordinator. We thought we could coordinate all our external vendors, the venue, and everything else on our own. After getting into ... Read more the weeds and booking at a “non-traditional” venue (that did not have an in-house maître d', bridal attendant, etc.) it became clear that we needed some help. Sandra at Hudson Valley Ceremonies was recommended to us and she was absolutely amazing. From the first phone call we had, she made us feel calm and comfortable. She was so much more to us than just our Day-Of Coordinator as she was truly there for us every step of the way through the planning process, helping us brainstorm ideas, giving us suggestions for rental vendors, decoration ideas, and everything in between. She helped us navigate some tricky situations with our vendors and always stayed professional. On our wedding day she was fantastic, coordinating deliveries, catering set up, and helping us with odds and ends to make sure everything went seamlessly. We were so thankful to have her and Mary (her assistant) there! It is clear Sandra has a ton of experience and knows exactly what she’s doing! There are not enough nice things to say about Sandra - she is a fantastic wedding planner and all around wonderful person! We would very highly recommend Sandra at Hudson Valley Ceremonies!
