“Choosing Urban Soiree to be our planner was easily the best wedding decision we made, and I cannot imagine having gone through this process without Renee. Renee is truly one-of-a-kind when it comes to her wedding planning style - she is creative and intuitive while also being extremely professional and detail-oriented. She handled every decision and minor bump with poise, and her expert planning and responses to everything gave us a huge sense of comfort and calm throughout the year and a half that we worked together. I was blown away by how gorgeous our wedding turned out to be (and that it was within our budget!), and how every detail felt very true to 'us' and the vision my husband and I set out for Renee. Renee is a total joy to work with and I cannot recommend her highly enough!”

“Renee was my other half for the last 11 months, I don’t know that I would have made it down the aisle in one piece without her. From day one she was friendly and upbeat, and I was always excited when a Renee email came through to my inbox!
Renee is very professional and really knows what she is doing - she answered literally every single question i had, tiny ones about favors to big ones like how to make the timeline of the day flow. She went above and beyond at every single moment, making me feel comfortable knowing I had someone who was completely by my side who was an expert in this space.
Leading up to the wedding Renee helped me with whatever was needed, and helped me build out what I think was a beautiful, romantic, and personal wedding for my husband and I. She attended meetings with vendors and asked questions I would never even have thought of asking.
The week (or two) leading up to the wedding I think I spoke to Renee more than I spoke to anyone - she made sure everything was running smoothly, and was very aware of my feelings and making sure I was doing well, it was very sweet! She completely ran the rehearsal which was a feat in itself.
The day of the wedding she was my rockstar, I don’t have words to describe what her help meant to me that day. She was at the hotel while we were getting ready to make sure pictures ran smoothly. She made sure all the men were ready (I was worried here). Her team coordinated the three different shuttle companies we had to use (looking back, I wouldn’t have been able to do this the day of, I had no idea how much work a wedding is). She got to the venue early and made sure the first look was all set, and then calmed me down when it wasn’t. She was miraculously by my side whenever i needed her, and had anticipated my needs (Like that I would need lipstick after the ceremony but before pictures!).
Renee’s team was also fantastic, both during planning and day of. Sarah and Natalie were fantastic, also anticipating my needs, and the needs of the guests, and being professional and on point the entire time. At one point they even helped me bustle my dress in the middle of the dance floor because I broke it mid-song!
There were a million things that Renee and her team did that i didn’t know about until after, and I can honestly say if I had to deal with them, the wedding may not have happened. A few of the many things I learned she handled after included: ceremony chairs being in the wrong location, people in our first look spot that we had to get to move, losing my fiances’ bag, broken champagne glasses, running behind on schedule, my dog being a bit of a brat during pictures - this was probably the most important thing she did that she didn’t know was going to be part of the job...) Having her there made me actually able to enjoy the best day of my life.
I am so glad a friend of mine recommended Renee to me. She made the last year truly amazing for our wedding. I’d like to get married again just so I can work with Renee and her team!
Thank you Renee, Natalie, and Sarah!”

“Renee and her team were patient as we walked together on this new path with our new future family; responsive to our needs, suggestions & questions; creative in finding beautiful ways to execute our vision; enthusiastic about every exciting detail; supportive through challenges in the planning and most of all became a blessed person in the biggest day of my son's life. Renee leads a dream team. There are no words to properly express our gratitude. With two more weddings to come in our family, Renee and Urban Soiriee will be our first call!”

“Hiring Renee as our wedding planner was the best decision my husband and I made during the wedding planning process. Renee is passionate, hard-working and a joy to work with! Her organization and prompt responses to emails helped so much to alleviate the typical stress from wedding planing. Renee has a great reputation in the wedding planning industry and has so many connections. She was so helpful with suggesting vendors that reflected our style and also fit in our price range. Renee really listened to our vision and executed it flawlessly. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and we could not have done it without Renee!”

“Several months before our wedding, I remember meeting Renee for a consultation over coffee, and basically wanted to hire her on the spot - simply for her ease of conversation, attention to detail, RESPONSIVENESS, and clear familiarity with Boston wedding contacts and the surrounding area vendors / venues. Renee offered a package that was perfect for our needs... someone who could be my extra set of eyes, ears and spearhead executing a flawless wedding day.
Well, Renee and the Urban Soiree team did just that. Our wedding on Dec 1st at Alden Castle was flawless! Hiring her was one of the best decisions I made during my planning process. Although the planning was mostly complete, all payments and contracts were in order, having Renee and her team to oversee the vendor communication and set up on my wedding day allowed me to feel weightless for the first time in a long time.
I was truly able to enjoy my wedding day and be "in the moment", without keeping track of timetable, flow, or anything else. I highly suggest Renee and her team to all future brides in the Boston area! Thank you for everything Renee!!”

“We said over and over again that the best money we spent on our whole wedding was hiring Renee and her team! Wedding planning had a LOT of ups and downs, but one thing that we could always count on was Renee's positive attitude and calm confidence. She literally blew us away by somehow always having the answer to any problem we were facing - from furniture sourcing to pushing our outdoor ceremony to avoid the rain - and helping us feel excited about our event even when things felt stressful. At one of our meetings about three months out from our wedding, we looked at each other and said, "I think we're actually going to pull this off!!" That feeling was completely attributed to Renee and her incredibly hard work. We are recommending her to all of our friends getting married - working with her was an absolute pleasure every step of the way.”

"I was recommended Renee (owner of Urban Soiree Boston) by Carrie, the owner of Floral Lab and it truly was the best decision I made of the entire wedding. I don't know what I would of done without her and her lovely team (Lindsey Galligan and Natalie Chai).
We choose Renee for the "Day of Coordination" only and we started working together approximetly 2 months prior to the wedding day. Everything from start to finish was a breeze with Renee. She is responsive to emails, organized, professional and very detail oriented. One of the most important parts for me was the wedding day timeline that she created for us. This came in so handy to ensure that all the vendors were on the same page. She contacted all of my vendors and confirmed all the details, attended the wedding rehearsal, prepared an emergency kit for the day of the wedding, and ensured that EVERYTHING was taken care of. It really took the stress out of my hands so that I could relax and focus on the special day.
You can tell that Renee loves what she does because she does everything with ease and care. I can't thank her enough for making our wedding day so special and memorable. I am so thankful I had the opportunity to work with Renee. If you choose Urban Soiree Boston, you will not be disappointed!"

"We can’t put it any more bluntly: Urban Soiree is amazing. If you have an idea, Renee will help you find a way to execute it. If you have a problem, Renee will help fix it. She is a true wedding-planning master. As soon as we had our first meeting with Renee, we were sold. And boy, were we lucky to have Urban Soiree by our side throughout the process as we worked through the details. It was abundantly clear that Renee understands the industry inside and out. She knows the vendors and venues. She has an eye for design and aesthetics. And her organization skills are impeccable. As our wedding got more and more complicated, Renee always found a way to make things work. She was supportive of our vision and took the greatest care to help us see it through. She also had a lot of really good ideas of her own, particularly when we ran into logistics challenges around transportation and seating. From day one until the very end of the night, Renee was alongside us making sure that everything went smoothly. We always knew we could rely on her. Renee is a consummate professional. We can’t recommend Urban Soiree enough! You will be so happy to have them by your side. Thank you for your help every step of the way!"
