“Michelle and Samantha were absolutely delightful to work with from the first meeting. They truly sought to understand our vision and desires for our wedding day, and gave us the resources and plan to accomplish it to the very detail. There was never a moment of frustration or stress. They always made us feel at ease and on pace. They were essential on the wedding day. We did not once have to think about logistics or a timeline on the day of the wedding. We cannot express enough gratitude to them for helping us create such an amazing day that exceeded all expectations. You would be crazy not to work with them! We are forever grateful.” – Kristin & Jay Salato
“Samantha and Michelle at Firefly Events provided exactly what I was looking for in my daughter’s wedding planning. I wanted to be involved in choosing the main vendors but knew I would be so stressed the final month tying all the ends together. Sam and Michelle offered many suggestions, devised a detailed timeline, and perfectly organized all the details we wanted included. They had such great taste that I didn’t have to worry about anything! The day of the wedding Sam and Michelle were so relaxed and together and helped out without me having to ask. Their unique “calm efficiency” and detailed organization were paramount. We will definitely be using their services for our next daughter’s wedding. Thanks Sam and Michelle!” – Lisa Zielasko (mother of the bride)
“Firefly did an unbelievable job planning and executing a post-wedding reception I hosted for a young couple. I live in Houston and needed help with the event, which I was hosting in Nashville. I selected Firefly off of their web page and think I hit the jack pot. They handled every detail of the event for me, from the invitations to the party favors and everything in between. Because I was not able to make it to Nashville until the day of the event, I was not able to meet Samantha or Michelle in person until that very day. We planned the whole thing through emails. They were completely responsive to my desires for the event, yet they made outstanding suggestions when I wasn’t sure what to do. I frequently host events in Houston and might even bring them here to run things for me. They did an OUTSTANDING job. I HIGHLY recommend them.” – Becky Lanier
“We loved working with Samantha and Michelle to plan our wedding! They were beyond helpful from start to finish. They offered great recommendations for vendors in Nashville, all of which were top quality and very professional. The Firefly team also promptly responded to the countless questions I had throughout the wedding planning process. They helped us stay organized with our many vendors and I felt an instant sense of relief when Michelle told us that she was working on our timeline and diagram in February for our August wedding! Samantha provided great recommendations for the overall vision and helped all of our wishes come together for a beautiful presentation. We enjoyed every minute of our wedding day and we attribute a large part of that to the coordination and execution offered by Firefly Events. Overall, we really enjoyed working with Samantha and Michelle and we cannot thank them enough for all of their help and guidance throughout the wedding planning process. We highly recommend Firefly Events without any hesitation!! Thank you Samantha and Michelle!” – Allie & Coby Deckard
“When it comes to professional wedding planning, Michelle and Samantha are a dream “team” come true. We live in Atlanta and our daughter’s wedding was to be held in Nashville. We decided very early on in the planning process to engage a wedding planner for our daughter’s Nashville wedding and Firefly Events was our salvation. Michelle promptly responded to our “last minute” request to meet with her, as we had a scheduled visit to Nashville from Atlanta. She was busy setting up for a wedding at Houston Station when we showed up. There was a buzz of excitement as vendors were whizzing by setting things up and accepting various deliveries for the wedding and reception that was occurring in less than two hours. Michelle was so calm and accommodating; it didn’t take but a few minutes to realize we wanted this level of calm, collected professionalism working with us – and decided we would go with the Firefly team.
We subsequently met Samantha, Michelle’s business partner, and could not have been more pleased and comfortable working with both of these professional, knowledgeable and extremely pleasant women.
We were so impressed with the breadth and depth of their understanding of the best (in terms of quality, creativity, and collaboration) vendors in Nashville. They steered us in the right direction 100% of the time. We were thrilled with every aspect of the planning process and wedding weekend.
As parents, we were able to enjoy every minute of the ceremony and celebration. We never worried about anything because we knew Michelle and Samantha had it covered.
When the celebration was over and all of the guests had departed, we took a look around at all of the activity and buzz of a venue being broken down, and were stunned at the hard work and people power it took to put on such an event. It all happened flawlessly under the careful orchestration of the the Firefly Events Team – Michelle and Samantha. We were simply in awe from start to finish.” – Ginny Hush (mother of the bride)
“I was blown away by Samanatha and Michelle. I cannot imagine having to do this on my own! They brought all my visions to life, making the wedding process/planning as simple as can be. Everyone kept mentioning how calm I was for a bride, and it was simply because of them. I knew we were in great hands!” – Shannon & Rob Drabicki
“Hiring Michelle and Samantha at Firefly Events was the best decision I made for my wedding (other than choosing my man)! Planning, organizing and executing an entire wedding is an extremely difficult task and especially keeping on budget. However, after a year of working together, Michelle and Samantha delivered well beyond my wildest expectations. Among many other things, they were very helpful in driving the early planning phases of setting budget, identifying a venue and the perfect partners to bring our wedding vision to life. A few of the vendors we used for the wedding were new relationships, which shows their flexibility and willingness to expand and grow their existing relationships for their clients. Also, they were so knowledgeable with every category of the wedding planning process and knew exactly what needed to be done/rented/purchased and when. They were truly on top of every little detail and always thinking a few steps ahead. Michelle and Samantha were always available by email, phone, or text. They made me feel very comfortable not to hesitate to ask them anything and everything. I cannot even recall how many emails, calls, and texts that sent them even very late at night at times! They made me feel as though I was their only bride even though I know they had many more!They went over and above on making sure my wedding day was flawless. They kept everything on time and the day flowed perfectly. They made everything as stress free as possible. They also continuously check in with my husband and I to make sure we were doing all right or needed anything! All my family and friends kept commenting on how professional and amazing they were!I honestly couldn’t have pulled off my wedding without them! Michelle and Samantha thank you so much for making our wedding day absolutely perfect!You should definitely hire Firefly Events! I promise you won’t regret it!” – Jackie & Pat Dillingham
“Firefly Events did an awesome job planning our 02/01/14 wedding, and we loved working with both Samantha and Michelle. They were extremely flexible/ willing to work around our hectic schedules, and we really appreciated that each has a positive but laid-back attitude which helped to ensure that the planning process went smoothly. In addition, they took the time to get to know us and to ensure that their recommendations regarding specific vendors were a good fit for our personalities and style.” – Lindsey & Dominick Smith
“Samantha and Michelle were excellent! I would reccommend them to anyone! It was well worth it to to realx during my wedding knowing they were taking care of everything!” – Yvonne & Cody Chandler
“Samantha and Michelle at Firefly Events were wonderful to work with for our wedding. My husband and I were planning a wedding in Nashville from our home in Texas. They provided excellent suggestions and were always available to answer questions. Our wedding was absolutely perfect, and I truly believe it was because of the hard work and dedication of Samantha and Michelle!” – Sara & Scott Ewert
“I loved my Fireflies!!!! I could not have gotten married without them. They are sweet, funny, kind and very good at what they do. I felt at ease throughout the whole process because I was actually able to trust them. I never doubted their capabilities and knew that my day would be perfect no matter what it ended up looking like. My Mom, Samantha and Michelle formed a special bond that I absolutely loved. I was planning my Nashville wedding from Richmond, Virginia, which initially made me really nervous but once I met the fireflies, I felt totally relaxed. They stayed on top of everything and I really appreciate all of their hard work. Again, I could not have gotten married without them. I love them and would recommend them to anyone!!!! Thank you so much Samantha and Michelle!! You will be the official DeJesus party planners from here on out!! XOXOXO” – Liz & Frankie DeJesus
“Being part of a traditional Indian family means you’re getting a big Indian wedding no matter what. With the help of Firefly Events, we planned a 275 person wedding reception (small by Indian standards) at War Memorial in just 4 months! Samantha and Michelle helped us us to combine traditional Indian elements with the hallmarks of a Southern wedding which was exactly what I and my very Southern husband Joe had wanted. With a venue like War Memorial which requires so many different vendors, Firefly was invaluable. They handled all the little day of issues that rain on our wedding day created with ease and grace–moving our valet to a rain location, our outside cocktail hour into an inside one, and making sure that we didn’t freak out because of the rain! Samantha and Michelle were fantastic–personable, thoughtful, organized but laidback and very willing to roll with the many punches my huge Indian family threw them during our short planning period; we couldn’t have asked for better coordinators.” – Surabhi & Joe Morrissey
We were very impressed by the coordinators at Firefly. They are extremely helpful, kind, and knowledgeable about event planning. Our wedding was amazing because of them!” – Jenny & Jon Mason
“I envisioned my wedding day for many years before I was even engaged, as I am sure every girl in the world has done. Because of Firefly Events, that vision turned into something even better than I had imagined. Our wedding day was the most amazing day of my life. It was happy, laid-back and stress-free because I had Firefly Events there to make sure everything ran smoothly. I knew that everything was being taken care of, so I was able to be in the moment and enjoy every single second of the day and evening. I was able to speak to every guest and dance and enjoy myself. Amazing day and amazing wedding coordinators!” – Samantha & Keith Pyle
“We chose Firefly Events to plan and coordinate our 40 year vow renewal at Cheekwood. It was the best decision we could have made!! Samantha and Michelle planned EVERYTHING and made sure that even the smallest detail was addressed! The vendors chosen were first class, the coordination was perfect; they handled everything! On the day of the renewal the ONLY thing that we needed to do was enjoy our party. We didn’t need to lift a finger, or make any decisions. It was a dream. Samantha and Michelle are the REAL deal. We highly recommend Firefly Events to anyone who wishes to work with the best in the biz!” – Mynda & Greg Lehman
“We decided to have a fairly large Nashville wedding (250 invites) with a fairly tight deadline (5 months). Samantha and Michelle were the first planners that I met with and I knew instantly that they fit the bill. They were creative and organized! They took care of absolutely everything! On the day of the wedding, there was absolutely nothing to stress over despite the rain and the fact that we had planned to have an outdoor wedding and outdoor reception. Just when it looked like a last minute storm system may ruin our big day, Samantha and Michelle took charge and located another “indoor” spot on the grounds of Cheekwood for the wedding and reception. When I arrived everything was in place and looked absolutely stunning. What could have been an extremely stressful turn of events was a complete stress free and lovely day – as your wedding day should be! I very much enjoyed working with them every step of the way and highly recommend them to anyone looking for professional, creative planners. You will fully enjoy your special day and all the events leading up to it because Samantha and Michelle will be handling all of the stressful details!” – Anna & Tyler Greer
“I had 8 months to plan a destination wedding in Nashville for my son and future daughter-in-law, so my husband suggested I hire a wedding planner since we live in Virginia. I googled “wedding planners” and came up with Firefly Events. I am so grateful for Michelle and Samanta for organizing the most amazing wedding. I simply told them what the bride and groom’s vision was for their big day and they found the perfect venue and recommended excellent vendors for the event. On the day of the wedding my son informed me that I was not to do a thing but to just enjoy the day and that was exactly what I did because Firefly handled everything from start to finish. I can’t say enough about Samantha and Michelle and would highly recommend them to plan your special day. They were absolutely wonderful to work with and I can honestly say that I made two great friends in Nashville!” – Marsha Piltz
