Diane and I just wanted to drop you a note to say "Thank you" for the professionalism and expertise you provided to us while working for us putting together our daughter’s wedding. When Lana, Tim, Diane and I first met you we were somewhat skeptical on how things would turn out, doing a destination wedding in Key West.
Our fears were alleviated when you took the time to explain the process as well as your responsibilities during the year leading up to the wedding. By the time we left Key West after our first meeting we felt confident in your ability to create a wedding that Lana and Tim had hoped for.
Your attention to detail during the year of planning was exceptional, keeping us informed as to the progress you were making with the necessary parties involved with putting this affair together. Our questions were answered in a timely manner and any issues were quickly resolved.
When we spoke to some of the vendors we were looking to use, from the photographer to the sites for the Friday evening reception to the Sunday brunch the vendors assured us that we had, in you, the best wedding coordinator they had ever worked with.
When we look back on the wedding day, where everything came together, we truly knew how fantastic a job you did by the comments from our guests. Many of them had never attended a wedding on the beach and between the scenes from the beach to the reception at the Truman House, everything Lana and Tim had hoped for was accomplished in large part to the work you did.
Once again, Diane and I want to thank you for effort you and your staff put into making our daughter’s wedding a truly spectacular event.

From the first conversation I had with Stephanie I knew this was going to be a spectacular wedding. Over the course of a year, she not only proved herself to be an incredible event planner but also became a great friend. I know what I like and most of the time it is hard for me to find the words to explain my vision. Stephanie, not only translated my ideas to the various vendors, she brought my vision to life. Every flower, every color, every linen, every detail was exactly what I had pictured. Her direction, her feedback, her knowledge of the business and her unbelievable support allowed me to realize that I was working with the best of the best. It was truly the most magical night of my life and I have Stephanie and her team to thank for it! I am already looking for another reason to plan yet another event with Swept Away, she is far too talented to only use once.
Hiring Stephanie to coordinate our destination wedding was the best decision I made as a bride. Stephanie was at all times professional, calm, resourceful, hardworking and most importantly, organized! Even though we didn't meet in person until our wedding weekend, I felt completely comfortable working with her and trusted her experience and advice. Our wedding would never have happened without Stephanie and we are forever grateful for planning the most important day of our lives.
-Erin Shank – February 2007
I can't even begin to put into words how special you made our wedding day! You went above and beyond your "call of duty" to make sure that everything was perfect! Spike and I, along with our entire family sincerely think the world of you! We can't stop talking about how incredibly awesome you are! Everything was beautiful and if anything went wrong, we had no clue! Thank you so much for making our dream come true. You were such a pleasure to work with!
-Larissa Boase – May 2006
Thank you so much for all your wonderful work on our wedding at The Southernmost House on October 7, 2005; you are a truly skilled wedding coordinator. We wanted a wedding that would reflect our casual, fun style but still be tasteful, beautiful and "island" memorable. Your flawless guidance as to décor, vendors, just everything, and tireless efforts to the challenges of distance planning and Hurricane Rita, allowed us to have the most amazing wedding -- not just the wedding of our dreams, but even better. In addition to us, every one of our guests said it was just the most breathlessly beautiful and roaringly fun wedding they had ever attended (which was important to us since they had traveled so far for our wedding).
-Sonia Cudd – October 2005
We are so greatful to have found you! You were amazing to work with from beginning to end. Tim and I agree... we truly had the perfect wedding.
There were always options to the many, many details you presented me with and always enough time to think about them. I appreciate your honesty, professionalism and passion for what you do.
-Lana and Tim Aleixo
I just wanted to thank you again for making our special day so perfect. I know that it is your job, but not only myself but all of my family thought that you went way beyond our expectations. Everything looked beautiful and went better than expected. This is definitely your calling! You truly made my day perfect! Hopefully, we will see you next year in Key West!
I just wanted to thank you again for everything you did to make my wedding so special. I wouldn't have been able to plan everything if it wasn't for you. Everyone had such a great time at the wedding. From the centerpieces (which I loved) to the steel pan drummer, to the cigar-roller, to the awesome photographer, to the cool guestbook, to the beautiful flowers,.everything was perfect ~ And I have you to thank for that. So, thank you so much! ~Hope to be back to Key West sometime very soon!
Hi Stephanie.... Mrs. Shiffer and I would like to thank you for the way you dealt with our wedding for our daughter Tami. It was a wonderful and we can't thank you enough for all you did. I have recommended you to countless friends and will continue to do so! Thank you again for your professionalism and courtesy.
-Brock and Joel Ann
I loved meeting with you. You're above and beyond the most pleasant person I've dealt with in Key West so far, and you are the only one who made me feel as though you actually cared about my wedding, I wasn't just another person who you could care less if I book my event with you or not. I want you to know that because truly I have had such a heartbreaking experience dealing with the "catering managers" at the other properties, and it made such a difference to visit with you. You've really been such a treat to deal with, and you treated me with the kindness and respect I expected as a new and excited bride, and you were absolutely the only one I got that feeling from.
