Love from our clients & Cheers
Lindsay- I’ve recovered sufficiently this morning to put some of my thoughts down about the wedding and wanted to send them to you.
Thank you so much for the most wonderful beautiful wedding and party anyone who participated in or attended has ever been a part of! We have received so many glowing comments about this having been the best of the best that I cannot tell you how excited and pleased we are! I will give any testimonial that you would like for your company if you think it would help you. You seem to be doing pretty well without me!
Of course the true test of this is Lindsey’s happiness, and she is still so happy with the wedding and everything about it that she couldn’t sleep last night for reliving it. Doesn’t get much better than that I guess! They left for Antigua this morning, and Lindsey is still ecstatic.
Thank you so much for everything you and your staff did to make this happen and go smoothly. I can’t think of one thing that was not perfect as far as what actually happened here. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know of the comments of the vendors as I believe those possibly have greater credibility than some others.
Drew from Goodwin – “I’ve done about 700 weddings and this is one of the top 10! No one in the Southeast has ever put up a tent this big of this style. The Atlanta Show Stoppers are one of the very best bands I’ve ever seen in this setting!” (I totally agree with him on that comment!)
Jackson Durham – The artist who put together the trellis display said yesterday that he thought it was his most beautiful work ever. He loved the color combinations.
Videographer – told Lindsey the following: “I just texted my wife and told her this may be the wedding of the year!”
So, thank you for your help and all that you put into it to make this happen in such a spectacular fashion! By the way, Epting did a great job too, but I guess it’s just come to be expected of them that their food is going to be out of this world and their staff is going to be the best. I hear that the parking even went well!! The fact that you even thought to notice that I hadn’t gotten anything to eat and made sure that I sat down and did so was amazing!
I know from experience that events like this do not come off the way this one did without someone paying great attention to detail and a lot of blood sweat and tears! I appreciate it so much that you went all out for Lindsey and Brent and for us. Please know that we will be happy to help you in any way we can in the future and will not hesitate to recommend you highly to anyone who asks us about you.

Just got back from a long string of weddings away and wanted to take a moment to thank you and your INCREDIBLE team for everything you guys pulled off at Kathleen and Jack’s wedding. I am still kind-of in awe. The fact that you each worked as hard as you did, as long as you did, all the while with the sweetest smiles on your faces truly blew me away. Then to have created such a stunning event! I don’t know you did it but it was such an honor to witness. I just wish we could work together more!!

We were a month away from my daughter’s wedding and the coordinator had quit the facility! Kasey Schaffer, of TOAST of Tennessee, was a recommendation. With just 4 weeks to go, she stepped into our chaos. She got all the details together as if she’d been a part of the planning all a long! From the venue, vendors and rehearsal dinner to myself and the bride she had it all in order. The wedding was fabulous. Yes, the bride looked lovely, the day was gorgeous and the food delicious. But, all those details that are swimming around your head, all taken care of and expectations exceeded 10 times. I’d recommend Kasey and her team to anyone. She did a fabulous job. It truly was a pleasure!!

The wedding was absolutely wonderful and give all the credit to you! You made the entire planning and event extremely easy. We would recommend you to anyone. I’m glad you enjoyed working with us but that was probably we had no idea what we were supposed to. You are the BEST! I hope you are still around when Kristin finds the right guy. So many people told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to! Credit to you and thank you so much for everything you did for us

I cannot recommend Nicki and Toast of the Coast highly enough! It was an absolute blessing to have Nicki with me from the time we started planning our wedding. The wedding planning process can certainly be a stressful time, especially on top of school and work, but she managed to create a stress free and enjoyable season of wedding planning! She was always ready to help me make decisions and she rectified any problem in a matter of minutes. There’s no problem that she won’t fix, while making it better in the process. Your wedding day is supposed to be the greatest ay in your entire life, and Nicki made sure mine was just that. Our wedding day went off without a hitch- there wasn’t a detail that Nicki didn’t pay special attention to. She truly went above and beyond my every expectation of what a wedding planner is supposed to be. She sets the bar high for every other person in this industry with her impeccable taste, outgoing personality, and caring spirit! She became a true friend in this process and I could not have had the wedding of my dreams without her.
Lindsay, not a day goes by that someone doesn’t tell me how perfect our wedding was. And, I promise it was because of you and your team. I have had so many folks wanting to advertise using our wedding, and that speaks volumes. A social magazine called just last week wanting to do a story. But most of all our family LOVED every single thing about the experience and will hold it in our hearts forever. I could go on and on but just know that we are so grateful that you are a part of our lives.

We’re so glad to have had Nicki and TOAST of the Coast help plan our wedding. My husband has actually known Nicki since childhood, but I just met her once we got engaged and decided to get married in Savannah. My only regret is not getting her involved even sooner! Nicki was extremely helpful every step of the way. She always had great advice and recommendations from lots of experience, and no matter the situation, she either (a) had an idea to make it even better or (b) had already fixed the problem before I knew about it. We were planning a destination wedding in Savannah while living in Texas, which should have been hard, but having Nicki and TOAST involved made the whole process so much easier. We actually got to ENJOY it. Our wedding day was like a dream. There wasn’t a thing for me or my husband to worry about because we knew Nicki and TOAST had everything more than covered. The entire day was exactly like we imagined from start to finish, and I know none of it would’ve been possible without TOAST!
Kerri! Saying THANK YOU a million times would still never be enough to express our deep and heartfelt gratitude to you for all your help in planning our wedding. From beginning to end you were a constant source of knowledge, support and fun! You were on top of every detail, always offering advice when needed AND supportive to new ideas. We loved how you were the perfect balance of thinking outside the box while knowing what works and will be successful. Your calm demeanor, constant smile and incredible attention to detail were a huge part of why our wedding day was such a joyous event. Thank you for allowing us to LOVE our wedding and be fully present knowing that you had everything under control. Somehow you and your team seemed to be absolutely everywhere when needed yet also blending into the background – a task harder than most people realize. Everyone was equally impressed and pleased – we are forever grateful!
Thank you, Thank you, thank you!! Kara and Micah Adler

It was a perfect fall day in Nashville. But what made the entire weekend for me and my husband even more perfect was the freedom to enjoy the time with family, friends and the bride and groom. This would not have been the case if it had not been for the detail and perfect planning of Kasey and Lindsay. We live in Atlanta and the bride and groom in Nashville. Kasey assisted our daughter Sara with choosing local vendors, securing contracts and all the logistics of the event. She met with Sara and Chad several times to make sure the day was just what they wanted. They were with Sara and the bridesmaids from the morning of the wedding until the very end of the night. Amazing is all I can say. Thank you Toast for making the entire process so enjoyable for our family.
Lynn Traynor, Mother of the Bride
It’s hard to believe the “big day” is here! Stan and I want to thank you for all you have done over the past year to ensure this special day is amazing for Sarah and David. We feel so pleased and grateful for your guidance, patience, and commitment. Sarah has commented on numerous occasions how lucky she feels that you agreed to work with her. We echo her sentiments. While this is a joyous day in our lives, we can’t help but feel a little sad that we will no longer have a “reason” to see you. We wish you all the best in your professional and personal life.

Chesley and I consider ourselves extremely fortunate and blessed to have been surrounded by so many close friends and family on such a special day. This perfect day would not have been possible without your incredible expertise and precision. TOAST events truly did an exceptional job and Chesley and I could not be more thankful. If there is anything that we can do to help promote you or your services, please do not hesitate to let us know!
Owen and I can’t thank you enough for helping make our wedding an absolute dream. Seriously, everything was perfect. I had no idea what I was doing and you made it all so easy. I can’t imagine having worked with anyone else. I will recommend you to anyone! We really appreciate you making sure that the only two days of complete sunshine this summer were on our wedding weekend! Well done! Seriously, thank you for waving your magic want– you are a genius.
With sincere appreciation and much love,
Chesley and Owen
I don’t think I can ever put into words the way it felt to have the entire wedding weekend go more perfectly than I ever imagined. You and your team thought of everything, came prepared, and had a solution for every little thing. Your advice along the way and execution of the weekend will be memorable to us for years to come. Thank you for all your help and flawless attention to detail. It was amazing for us both to truly enjoy every minute of the weekend and not worry about a thing. We are forever grateful for your success in making our wedding PERFECT!

Thank you for being such an amazing wedding planner. I couldn’t have done it without you, and couldn’t have picked a better partner in crime to have this much fun with. You’ve not only been so helpful and knowledgeable, but also supportive and kind. I am so glad to have done such a memorable thing with you by my side.
Maggie & Brian
Lindsay helped Brian and I plan our perfect wedding and then took every step to make sure it happened just like we envisioned it. Planning a destination wedding in the Bahamas was no easy feat but Lindsay things of all the details that make the day perfect. From having a needle and thread to fix my bustle at the last minute to her artistic eye to make subtle changes at the reception site to create a more intimate setting, I do not hesitate to recommend Lindsay to anyone in need of a talented planner.
I have been very blessed to have watched a young lady begin a career at the Atlanta Athletic Club and take our club so very far. I have admired her diligence and relentless efforts to make each event different than the last however, still creating lasting memories for the young children of the club as well as their parents and grandparents. I have personally learned that with endurance and work ethic, one can do anything. Through all of these events Lindsay kept the membership at the top of her priorities and made sure that each member was able to make memories out of their years at the club. Lindsay is leaving to pursue her dreams, there has never been any doubt that she will succeed but I also know she will do more than just succeed. Lindsay will create memories for new people just as she did here with our members. She will take the same pride, skills, endurance and perfection and use those traits to give an experience to people that they will talk about with their families for years just as our members have done here at the AAC.
Lindsay is a life-saver. She is incredibly organized and thorough. Her attention to detail and ability to solve unexpected problems are only a few of her invaluable skills. She is equally as gracious a person as she is a planner. Event coordination is not just a job for her. Realizing dream events is her passion and I feel she’s the best around.
What a wedding – Lindsay and her team did a FANTASTIC job!!! From engagement ring to wedding bells, TOAST supported us the whole time – with smiles on their faces and excitement in their work! Lindsay thought of everything and even treated us to a few surprises (extra wedding day signage, pretty baskets for our programs, etc.) – we had no worries because we knew we were in the best hands! Our wedding day memories are even sweeter due to the peace of mind provided by TOAST! We are forever grateful to Lindsay for her hard work, kindness, support, knowledge, and humor – TOAST has our highest recommendation and utmost respect! We love y’all!!

The rehearsal dinner and wedding reception were beyond our expectations. We thank you so much for all you did to make the events possible. I especially appreciate your calmness and efficiency. Working with you was a true pleasure.
Lynda Mann-Mother of the Groom
I can’t thank you enough for your wonderful assistance with our wedding weekend! We would never have pulled off such a fabulous event without you! Scott and I got to be relaxed and we thoroughly enjoyed our entire wedding experience thanks to you! The great thing is, it was not only us who recognized your wonderful skills – so many people who attended the wedding are still raving about how spectacular everything turned out and how great our Wedding Planner was! We have been and will continue to recommend your first class services to all of our friends and relatives.
I’m ever grateful to all the vendors who took this event and its flawless execution to heart;especially Lindsay – a champion of both creativity and organization!!
Our wedding was exactly what we hoped it would be, and we know we wouldn’t be able to say that if it were not for your incredible patience, creativity and care. We cannot thank you enough for everything you’ve done for us over the course of the past year. You calmed us, encouraged us, and kept us on track and the result was an event we and our families will remember fondly for the rest of our lives. Most impressive to us is that though you meet dozens of couples like us every year ,you treated us as if ours was the most important wedding you would ever plan. Thank you for everything
Lindsey and Tyler Mann
Thank you for everything! Throughout the process I always felt like I was your only bride. You are so attentive to detail and you are so creative and fun! Of course, I appreciate your ability to operate within a budget, but mostly I’m glad to have had the opportunity to know you. Thank you for choosing all the best vendors and for making the whole wedding planning period a fun one!
Thank you and the TOAST team so very much for bringing to life the wedding of our dreams with seamless execution. You made the entire planning process memorable and enjoyable for us! We really and truly appreciate all of your time, effort and expertise. You were all a pleasure to work with and we will definitely stay in touch
Taylor and Ronnie Brown
Saturday was pretty much flawless. About all you could have done to improve it would have been to produce a pair of size 13 black dress shoes around 5:30. Laura and Sarah started driving this process back in December and a great team was assembled. The guests could see/hear the contribution of the soloist, organist and pastor at the church. They could see and taste the work of the catering folks with the food and décor and marvel at the cool venue. They could also see and hear the performance of the Atlanta Showstoppers. But what our guests most likely were never even aware of was the contribution of you and your in making it such a special time. And, of course, that is the greatest affirmation you could have that you did an outstanding job. You seemed to be omnipresent while at the same time being invisible. It is a privilege to see such excellence and competence in someone executing on their responsibilities. The reception really was pretty magical, as so many things came together just right and you oversaw that. Saturday was the biggest collaboration that the two most important women in my life will ever have. That is was so successful will be a great landmark and bond in their lives and relationship that will never go away, which you helped make happen. And for that, Lindsay, I will be forever appreciative. Thank you.
There are no cards large enough to contain all of the praise I’d like to heap upon you for the perfect, perfect wedding you pulled off for Blake and Holly. I’ve never seen anything to compare with it. And how you managed to keep everything together looking like a million bucks and smiling all day and all night is a complete wonder. Thank you for all you did so that Holly could enjoy being a bride and so that the rest of us could just wait to be nudged in the right direction by you or your cute aproned helpers. I think we are all still basking in the afterglow of love we all felt watching Blake and Holly enjoy their official life together. It was a night of complete joy and happiness. We will always remember you when we look back on that night.
