Thank you for all of your help and work on our wedding. We really appreciate it. You did a fabulous job;

everything was perfect. I hope the rest of your summer has been fabulous!

 Love, Meghan & Pat

We cannot thank you enough for making our daughter’s wedding more perfect than we ever imaged could be achieved. From the venue you recommended, to the music, to the florist, to the caterer ~ everything was perfect. Many, many of our guests said it was the best wedding they’d ever attended, and we have you to thank for that.

As you know, my daughter is a low-key, no-nonsense person, and I had to encourage her strongly on a few wedding services that she was skeptical about whether they were needed ~ specifically, your services, splurging on Brian Hess for music, and a florist. However, two days after the event, I had a message from her that in rehashing the weekend with her new husband, they concluded it was the best weekend of their lives and that Caitlin Murphy was a key to making it so. She also mentioned Brian Hess’s music as creating the perfect ambiance, Martha Bernyk’s flowers as enhancing Tahoe’s beauty, and D’Lish Caterers as living up their name by being delicious. These are all vendors you recommended, and we never would have been able to put this together without you.

Of course, the venue you recommended ~ The Bear Paw Lodge ~ was indescribably beautiful, and we never would have found it without you. Indeed, every detail was perfect, right down to your calligrapher who used a Sci-Fi font on the signage to tie into the nerdy theme of the wedding.

Thank you so much, Sam and Glen Odell

It was wonderful to work with you!! Alexis and Patrick’s wedding turned out absolutely gorgeous.

I look forward to working together again in the future.

Warmly, Catherine

There are not enough words to express my gratitude to you for the incredible job you did on Kelly and Joe’s wedding! I know there was so much, so many details, and you took care of everything. I know you worked so many long hours and it was perfect, just exactly what Kelly wanted! Heather, you are a dear, and I loved working with you and being with you this last year. Thank you!

 Love, Pam

Matt and I cannot begin to thank you enough for what you have done for us. You helped to make our dreams come true.

Thank you!

Love, Janel & Matt

Thank you so much for all of your guidance and support for our wedding. Your expertise and patience were very much appreciated. We couldn’t have done it without you.

 Sincerely, Jen & Allen Strickland

Thank you for being the best wedding planner EVER!! You made all of my dreams a reality! I couldn’t have asked for anything more. You literally achieved perfection! You dealt with all of my ideas  and demands so well too!

Thank you and love always, Kelly & Joe

 Thank you so much for all of the hard work you put into our wedding. It really was a magical day for us, and everything was perfect thanks to you! I wish you all the best!

Love, Jill & Kevin

 Where do we even begin? We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your part in making our wedding the wonderful day that it was. We could not be happier with have every single part of the process leading up to the day went – and the actual day just blew us away! You and your team did a fantastic job, and we were never worried for a second. Thanks again!

Teresa & Robert

Brenton and I are still in our “wedding clouds”…floating and reminiscing all of the joy and love we shared on our magical day. We were so blessed!! A lot of hard work and planning, and prayers for the skies to open up and clear for our wedding day, and that’s just what happened! It was so blissful and amazing!!
I wanted to say thank you for all of your hard work throughout this past year, helping to plan and create our “simply classic” wedding vision which came alive on 8.25.13. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day!  Bonnie, thank you for saving me and picking up those champagne glasses. I am so happy! Common comments from friends and family are “best wedding I’ve ever been to!!” Which means a lot in today’s world with all of the extravagant weddings, etc.! Thank you for making it so special!! I cannot thank you enough!

Best, Mrs. Courtney Sullivan ;-)

We wanted to send a quick note to thank you so much for all the hard work helping us create such a magical day. Everyone commented on all the beautiful details and how smoothly everything seemed to go. I’m sure there were snafus but I was completely oblivious to them as Bonnie did an amazing job protecting me from the chaos!  My heart skipped a beat when I arrived at cocktail hour and saw the decor- my memory table was gorgeous as was the the dining room! Everything was truly stunning and the vendors you recommended were awesome. We have been hearing non stop from guests that this was the best wedding they have ever attended. Thank you thank you for helping us manifest our dream wedding!

Warmly, Simone & Stephen

We had a very elegant event, at a complicated venue with a difficult client. Caitlin demonstrated strong organizational skills, experience and “day of” execution, making the event a huge success. Her team was well informed and gave clear direction that assured that the expectations of the client and the venue were met. I would highly recommend Caitlin and Summit Soiree to exceed your needs for professional event planning and services.
A+++ experience for us!!
Danny J – the Mixx

I simply cannot find the words to express my gratitude for the amazing coordination of Lauren’s wedding by you, Caitlin and Bonnie.  Everything was perfect–no one could have asked for a more well-run event.  The fact that I could simply enjoy every single second of the entire day was like a gift I never expected to get.  Because of you, I never had a concern, never broke a sweat, never wrung my hands (which I do when I get nervous!).  And because of you, I will remember every detail, every moment and every smile for the rest of my life.
Thank you again so much.  You ladies are awesome.

Theresa Hall

I am still smiling!  That was the most incredible weekend and most magical day!  I am so happy it all came together so beautifully!!!
I couldn’t be more thankful for all you did and Tory for your caring and thoughtful ways.  You are absolutely terrific.

Jennifer Whelan 

I used Heather and Tory at Summit Soiree for my day of coordinators. Heather was extremely helpful during the entire planning process and was willing to help me find the appropriate vendors even though I only hired her for the day of. Tory took over after Heather had a baby and the transition was seamless. Tory helped coordinate the rehearsal, as well as, the wedding. I was so relaxed throughout the entire weekend  and I know that would have been impossible without Tory. I enjoy looking for vendors on my own, so the day of coordination was all that I really required, however, if you are looking for someone to plan your event, I can only imagine how it would turn out if you used Summit Soiree. Heather seems to have a great relationship with every venue in the Lake Tahoe area and knows a lot about what is appropriate for your event. I don’t think my wedding would have been the same without Tory and Heather!

From Adrianne Kunde

Thank you so much for helping us plan our dream wedding! Everything turned out so beautiful and was even more perfect than we could have ever imagined.  We’ll never be able to thank you enough for all of the preparation and hard work you put into making our big day so special. We will be forever grateful.

Love, Kristie and Jeff

 Thank you for a fabulous wedding. All your hard work is greatly appreciated. Ben and I could not have imagined a more perfect wedding for us, and our guests could not stop raving about how fun it was. All of the vendors you recommended turned out great and the coordination on wedding day was seamless. Thank you for a perfect wedding!

Amy & Ben Brunel

Thank you so much for your help and expertise in making Chris and my wedding day amazing!

Katie & Chris Hawkins

Thank you so much for helping make our wedding such a spectacular event! We could not have done it without the help of you and your wonderful staff. Our wedding was everything we had hoped for and much more. We received many compliments from friends and family on how beautiful the event was and how much fun they had. You should be receiving a gift from us as a small token of our appreciation for all of your hard work. Many thanks and best wishes.

Alessandra & Cassidy

Thank you for everything! Our wedding turned out way better than either of us could have ever hoped for. Also, thank you for the candle. That was really sweet of you to give that to us. We love it! We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Love, Katie & Shawn

We want to thank you so much for your time and effort over the past year. The wedding was Kristie and Jeff’s dream wedding! Everything turned out so perfectly. What a beautiful and unforgettable day!

We are giving you this gift as a token of our appreciation for the wonderful job you did for us and especially for Kristie and Jeff. We’re going to miss you. We wish you great success with Summit Soiree!
Sincerely, Nancy & Greg Vollmer
How can we ever thank you enough! I don’t think it’s possible. This has been the wedding of our dreams. We couldn’t have done it so well, so calmly and effortlessly, so beautifully and so completely without you. You are truly talented and amazing! Thank you for your passion, your attention to detail, your dedication, your creative ideas…all of it!! We are so grateful to have found you.
Always, MaryAnn & Chris Winkler
Hope your holidays were wonderful. Sorry I am so late in sharing our good wishes, but life has been busy ever since the wedding!  Thank you again for all your help and support last year. Wishing you a wonderful New Year!

Linda & Jim

We can’t thank you enough for all of your initial help with the wedding planning. You were so helpful in providing us with some direction in those beginning stages when I didn’t even know where to start. Our wedding at Fitzhaven was absolutely beautiful and amazing and went off without a hitch. We had so much fun and we were both thrilled. Tori was amazing and she really made it all happen. We would definitely recommend your services. We think you guys went above and beyond and we appreciate it!

Shawna & Adam Levi

We so appreciate all your talent, hard work and unfailing great communication. We loved working with you! That said, we are in major wedding letdown phase. Sigh. Time to rejoin real life.
Alice Breen (mother-of-the-bride)

What an exceptional wedding weekend for Jennifer and Josh!  It was perfect and I thank you sincerely for making it so special!
Should I know of any upcoming weddings in the Tahoe area, I certainly will recommend you and Heather-it was a delight to work with you in every aspect.

Debbie Whelan (mother-of-the-bride)

Heather, I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed working with you for Beth’swedding.  The day was remarkable.  I don’t know if anything  went wrong on
your end and if it did we could not tell, but it seemed like it went very well. The entire day was so much fun for all of us.
Beth couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful wedding day!  Thank you for your hard work and efforts to make her dream come true!


“Heather, I want to thank you for assisting Kimmy and me in the planning of Kimmy and Scott’s wedding.  It was an  amazing event, and a magical evening.  Your access to the Davis Estate was so important, and it proved to be the ideal location…even the weather cooperated! All of the vendors were professional, and D’Lish provided great food and service….very professional bartenders.
I want to let you know what an amazing job Tory did with the planning during this past month.  She conducted thorough meetings, and quickly followed up with pertinent information we needed.  She did  some great “hand holding” with Kimmy and put our worries to rest with all our many details.   She went above and beyond my expectations with overseeing the event.  It is clear this is not just a job for her, but a true passion.  The timeline was perfect….kept the evening  moving without rushing it.”

Peggy Peterson

“THANK YOUUUUU for all your help to make our wedding the most AMAZING day of our lives!  Seriously, in our eyes, it couldn’t have gone any smoother.  I felt so composed that day because I knew that no matter came up, you would take care of it.  You were such a pleasure to work with.  You kept such a calm composure and a smile on your face the whole time and for that, we will forever be grateful :-)  We will definitely recommend you to our friends getting married in the future.”

Mina & Matt

“The wedding was such a spectacular event!  We could not have done it without the help of you and your staff.  Our wedding was everything we had hoped for and so much more.”

Alessandra & Cassidy

“This was the wedding of our dreams!  We couldn’t have done it so well, so calmly & effortlessly, so beautifully & so completely without.  Heather, you are truly talented…Amazing.  Thank you for your passion, your attention to detail, your dedication, your creative details…all of it.  We are so grateful to have found you.

Mary Ann & Chris

Retaining the services of Heather Spear with the smartest decision we made when it came to my daughter’s wedding. We connected with Heather immediately on the day we all met at Garwood’s Restaurant, one year before the wedding. She was upbeat, professional, fun and most of all ‘business savvy.’ Bottom line, Heather saved us a great deal of money and stress.

Every time we spoke to a vendor and mentioned we were working with Heather the vendor would say ‘Heather is the best!

Heather knows how to negotiate with the vendors and get the best prices. She was also able to retain vendors who told us they were booked. Hiring Heather allowed me to ‘enjoy’ the whole wedding experience with my daughter as opposed constantly arguing, as I have heard is very common among brides-to-be and their mothers.

Heather knows the Tahoe area, and she knows the vendors. On the day of my daughter’s wedding the only thing I had to do was show up, enjoy the wedding and have a great time. Heather thought of all the details, and more. She had access to many resources I did not even know existed. She was able to advise us on areas where we could save money and areas where we should not skimp.

Bottom line is Heather Spear is professional, business savvy, smart, calm, resourceful and fun to work with. Hiring Heather to coordinate your wedding will be the smartest wedding decision you make.”

Colita McCullough

“Dear Tory, thank you for all of your help with our wedding! You have been amazing & we are so grateful!”

Colleen & Toby

Tory, thank you for all your hard work to make our wedding day seem effortless. We were able to relax and enjoy the day with our guests, and that would not have been possible without your help. It all happened without a hiccup (except on the dance floor)! Thank you so much for all your expertise in putting it all together.”

John & Sherry

“I just wanted to officially say thank you for all your time, patience, and hard work in giving us the wedding we had hoped for. Everything was absolutely PERFECT! Thank you.”

Megan & Ray

“This is a little late in coming but we wanted to say thank you for everything. It was such a pleasure working with you and I appreciate your flexibility and openness to different ideas. We had a wonderful time the entire weekend-it was really all we had hoped for.”

Tiffany & Jeff

“We would have never known to contact Diana if it had not been for your references list. Being a destination wedding, we needed help with all aspects of creating their wedding. You were wonderful from the very start when Dana & Ryan were trying to pick their venue site. Your great attitude made Dana & Ryan always very comfortable, and you seemed to give them just the right guidance while allowing them to make the event their very own. That ability I know is a difficult tightrope act. We were fortunate that Dana & Ryan had already been in and to many weddings and knew much of what they wanted in their wedding. As parents of the bride, it was easy for us, because all of their decisions were better than any ideas that we could contribute.

You brought in knowledgeable assistants like Laura when needed, and otherwise handled all issues professionally and with an attitude of making the event fun and hassle free. We had several guests comment that the event was at the most beautiful venue ever and ran the smoothest they had seen with no surprises or ‘hiccups’. We appreciate that was true because of yours and Dana’s & Ryan’s advanced planning. You three made a wonderful team, which is what John & I had hoped way back in November would be the case. We wanted the wedding planner to work with Dana & Ryan as part of a team with each one’s needs being addressed. You accomplished that beautifully.

Their whole wedding experience was beyond our expectations, and we know much of that credit goes to you guiding Dana & Ryan in their decisions.

Thank you for assisting Dana & Ryan in creating their wedding experience as a fun celebration at a breath taking beautiful Tahoe venue.”

Diane & John Blindbury

“We are so very thankful we found you. What you did for our special day was wonderful! Thank you so much for all your help, support, ideas and creativity. The day was just as we dreamed it would be.”

Kane & Aimee Schaller

“Thank you for all your help and your great attitude. You sure are a sweetheart! Thanks again Heather! The rehearsal, wedding, and brunch were all great and we couldn’t have done it without you!”

Juli Bronzini

“Dear Heather, Thanks so much for all your help with the Moore-Bronzini wedding and all the attendant festivities. You truly made the planning easier and the celebrating more fun. We appreciated all your background work with the caterers and rentals. You succeeded beautifully where I was having a hard time.

Thank you again, Heather, for your assistance and your upbeat and always friendly demeanor.”

Leslie & Joe Bronzini

“Words can not express the gratitude we have for your expertise in wedding planning. Even with everything that ‘tried’ to go wrong, the event went so well people couldn’t believe it wasn’t as planned! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making Meghan and Jason’s day a beautiful memory.”

Dana & Tonnie Spratt

“Thank you so much for everything you did to make my wedding so spectacular! Every detail was taken care of and it all turned out just like I had imagined. Thank you for your attention to detail and for not letting anything slip through the cracks. You are a super-star type A (just like me!) and I couldn’t have done this without you. Thanks again for helping me put on the best wedding EVER!”
