When our photographer recommended the team at From This Day Forward, I knew we would be in good hands. Meredith was wonderful to work with for the year leading up to our big day. All of her vendor recommendations were fantastic, which ultimately lead to a vendor team of professionals who worked well together to produce our dream wedding. Meredith went above and beyond sourcing vendors and managing our contracts, as international clients she opened her garage as a storage place for our linens and welcome bag merchandise. She even went so far as to pick me up from the airport. By the time our wedding came around, we felt more so as if Meredith was another friend at our wedding rather than a vendor (her assistant, Corinne, was just as lovely). If there were any issues the day of, we had no idea – everything was impeccably seamless and absolutely perfect – even with some last minute requests. For anyone thinking they can go it alone – hire a planner for a stress free day. Better yet, hire Meredith and Genina and they will bring your perfect day vision to life!
I was hesitant at first to spend money on a wedding planner because I thought I could do it myself. Let me give some advice to some other brides to be…you CAN’T do it yourself. Out of everything in our wedding budget, this may have been the money most well spent. I worked with Taylor and Corinne, and they were both wonderful. If anything went wrong that weekend, I don’t know about it because they were there to handle everything from directing the ceremony, to designing the layout, to coordinating with the shuttle drivers. I also had the pleasure of meeting Genina during our first walk through, and she was very helpful in helping me decide on our flowers. I very highly recommend their services.
I live in DC and when we decided to plan a destination wedding in Savannah I knew I wanted a wedding planner there since I wasn’t really familiar with the area. I interviewed a few companies and I chose From This Day Forward because I liked their energy, organization and all the ideas they had just from the first time we spoke on the phone. My head planner was Genina and I loved her so much! She made planning my wedding so easy and was genuinely excited to plan it with me. We discussed everything from wedding style, budget, small details to everything in-between and she really got exactly what I was looking for. She sent me 3-5 recommendations for each vendor category (ceremony/reception locations, DJ, ceremony musicians, photographers, hair salon, videographer, makeup artist, florist/rentals, bakery, etc.. ) to look through and chose who I wanted to interview. My now husband, my parents and I went down and met her in Savannah for a week in Feb and a weekend in Sept and she set up all our vendor appointments and went with us to each of them. She was very helpful and really listened to what we wanted offering real advice. I loved every vendor we choose from her recommendations and it was a load off having her set everything up and confirm the timelines. We also did a lot of DIY decorations so Genina really was flexible letting us do as little or as much as we wanted. The week of the wedding everything went so smoothly and I know it was all due to her. She handed out timelines down to the minute which was awesome and took all of our handmade decorations and set up everything for us at the ceremony/reception. We didn’t really worry about anything and were really able to enjoy our wedding the whole time celebrating with friends and family. Genina was so great to work with, always positive and responsive, and I would recommend her for any bride planning her wedding. She met and exceeded all of my expectations! Thanks Genina!!!
My husband and I were lucky to come across these lovely gals online and have them plan our dream wedding. We consulted about 5 or so wedding planners before settling on From This Day Forward. The combination of Meredith and Genina’s attractive yet opposing personalities, confidence, energy, experience, and creative thoughts all contributed to our choosing this particular event planning company. We thought they also offered the best value for their services. Together, we put together a list of the best vendors for our Big Day and they went about taking care of all the boring details. We initially wanted the wedding at the father of the bride’s house but nature intervened (luckily almost a year before our wedding date). They quickly provided us with a list of alternate venue options, thus landing us the most beautiful outdoor venue at the Ships of the Sea Museum. There were other hiccups along the way, as expected with any large-scale event, but our planners managed to rectify everything in an acceptable manner. It really was fun working with these two! Another amazing benefit to using them was that they are SO talented that we also hired Meredith to do our beautiful calligraphy and Genina to design our wedding invitations/save-the-dates/thank you’s. We had so many compliments on them! These two really were perfect in helping execute the wedding of our dreams.
