I hired Courtney and Anna to be my day of coordinators and OH MY GOSH, they were worth every penny-- and then some. I gave them my vision for the ceremony space and reception area and they made it jump off a Pinterest page and come to life. They were cool, calm and collected-- solving problems that arose and taking care of all the behind the scenes chaos that happens getting weddings set up.
They're professional, personable, and punctual-- hardworking and creative-- I mean it truly doesn't get any better than these two. There's no question in my mind that I wouldn't have been able to pull off the most beautiful wedding I've ever been to (I realize I'm slightly biased) without the help of Ryder + Rhoades.
Whether you want the full experience of wedding planning collaboration or just want someone to make sure things run smoothly day of (BELIEVE ME, YOU DO), choose Courtney and Anna to make those perfect wedding visions come true! They'll be my recommendation to my nearest and dearest friends, and strangers too! :)
I came to Ryder + Rhoades about a month out before my wedding, when planning started to get extremely complicated and stressful to me. These girls completely took all the stress away and were so crucial that last month - I don't know what I would have done without them! They were always extremely responsive and able to meet whenever needed. They completely took over vendor communication and made sure all the little details were taken care for my big day. They completely listened to me and what my vision was and had great ideas to add to the venue for detail (my favorite was the neon sign of our last name that I'm obsessed with). Day of I didn't have to worry about set up of the venue or coordination of vendors - they operated flawlessly! They even delivered my dress DAY OF to my hotel room! They have even followed up with some items to take care of after the wedding. Loved working with Courtney & Anna!!
If I could give these girls a million stars I would! Both Courtney and Anna did a phenomenal job at my wedding. There is literally nothing they can't accomplish. From Costco runs to getting floral arrangements together and beyond. They put together a flawless, beautiful, dream wedding for me and my husband. I didn't have to worry about a thing because I knew that the entire wedding was in good hands with these two.
Not only will these girls work so very hard for you, they will also give great advise, come up with awesome ideas, problem solve, and use their many creative talents to pull off the ideal look and feel of your wedding.
I know weddings can be stressful and can put the bride in a panic but if you'd rather sit back with a glass of champagne and enjoy the day then Ryder and Rhoades is the way to go!
I went into my wedding season thinking “I’m doing this myself, I don’t need any outside help.” But boy was I wrong! I met with Courtney twice before the wedding and she knew exactly what to do. Between her and Anna, they both made my day more memorable than I ever could. They made sure my vendors were doing what needed to be done, they had a timeline and stuck to it, they decorated my tables better than I could’ve imagined. I had a sunset wedding and I brought my concern of lighting to Anna and Courtney. They got a ladder and seriously CLIMBED THE TREE I was getting married under just to hang candles and it turned out perfect!! Those lights hanging from the tree are the only details from the wedding that stick out in my mind and in the mind’s of the guests. I could rave all day about how awesome Ryder + Rhoades is but let me just finish by saying: if you want to be able to enjoy your wedding and know it’s going to be magical, you have to call them. You seriously won’t regret it.
I hope you are having a great day!! I hope you don't mind me reaching out, but I wanted to talk to you about Courtney and Anna (Ryder & Rhoades Events) whom recently planned my wedding on August 25th. I have been in this industry now for over 6 years. I know tons of wedding planners here in Nashville so finding the perfect one for my wedding was a difficult decision. After meeting with Courtney and Anna I knew that they would help me bring my vision to life and make my dream wedding come true. Their contagious personalities made it easy to click with them immediately. They not only created my dream wedding, they also perfected every element making the day run smoothly and flawlessly. Events can be difficult, especially weddings, with all the moving parts. From lighting, to entertainment, to catering, it is hard to make sure everything is in order and on time for the big day. There is always going to be some bump in the road, but a wedding planner is there to smooth it out and make everything run perfect in the bride (and families) eyes. Courtney and Anna did just that. When you hire a wedding planner some charge you insane amount for just one person to be on site. Not only is their price insanely affordable, you get two for the price of one. I highly recommend having two planners on site. They both can focus on different elements of the event/wedding which makes it run 10 times better.
