Anna Swanson is amazing, in all reality, the word amazing doesn’t do her justice. She is brilliant. She was able to take a few Pinterest pictures with a vague idea and turned it into our fairy tale which is exactly what Brandon and I experienced this past March. A fairytale wedding. It is ALL thanks to Anna.


Anna figured us out and gave us the wedding of our dreams. With less than 5 months to go, Anna became our wedding planner (after another wedding planner took our money and ghosted). We were devastated! We were planning a destination wedding in Savannah, GA, and we had nothing with less than 5 months to go. Can you say “total panic” ??? Anna swooped in and saved the Day.


She coordinated everything from start to finish and it was PERFECT. From the first moment we spoke, I knew she was the right person. Her soft southern accent instantly puts you at ease. She answered all our questions with confidence, met every deadline, and calmed my growing anxiety as the big day grew near. She is what every bride DESERVES on their big day.

The very first conversation I had with Anna,

I knew she was the missing piece to our big day!! Her professionalism, love of the industry, and love of LOVE shows in every aspect of the magical process! Anna was our day of coordinator and SO much more!


Anna took every ounce of stress away from me and handled hiccups, that I didn't know existed. Anna remains cool and poised under pressure. She is responsive, caring, loving, extremely talented, and well organized. She deserves more than 5 stars!


Anna will bring all of the pieces together and make your day your dream come true! Anna will be your biggest supporter. On our day, I got to focus on the love for my husband and not the schedule or plan for the wedding day. Anna will be an unmatchable piece to your big day! From start to finish, we didn't stress, because we knew Anna had it. Rustic to Ritz Events is everything you could ever need!

We hired Anna for our destination wedding in Savannah. She was our eyes and ears throughout the whole planning process and helped us find amazing vendors. Anna is so sweet and calm yet very hard working and knows how to get the job done. Would recommend her to anyone. Thank you Anna!

I cannot say enough positive things about Anna. We hadn't initially planned on hiring a full-service planner, but our venue, Palmetto Bluff, required it. AND THANK GOODNESS WE DID! I spent a whole day interviewing planners of varying levels of experience and cost, and Anna was exactly what we needed for our wedding. She was professional, friendly, responsive (I mean, almost 24/7), and SO organized. She had a list of preferred vendors that brought our dream wedding to reality with what appeared to be ease!


As another reviewer mentioned, even from our vague Pinterest pictures, she got our vision and brought it to life. From juggling our vendor contracts to club soda-ing my wine-soaked reception dress (lol), she did everything. Even when our hair stylist canceled on us 10 days before our wedding, she had two other vendors lined up for us within an hour. She was absolutely wonderful and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a planner in the Hilton Head/ Bluffton/

Savannah area.

We were having a destination wedding in Savannah, GA. We knew no one who lived there and I knew I needed a wedding planner but Anna went above and beyond my expectations. We hired her to help us through the entire process, not just the day of. She coordinated with everyone, suggested specific vendors (who were also phenomenal), and played an integral role in making everything go absolutely smoothly. I had a couple different vendors I worked with tell me how fantastic Anna was at coordinating and communicating with them.


We ended up shipping my dress to Anna a week or two before the wedding and she dropped it off to get steamed, picked it up, brought it to us, went to lunch with my mom and I, and made my mom (a very special creative worrier) feel very comfortable the day of. Thanks to Anna we were all able to enjoy a perfect day with no stress and not a single problem. I would recommend her again and again... she was fantastic!

Rustic to Ritz Events was amazing! I couldn’t imagine working with anyone else. They were so patient throughout the whole planning process when my ideas were all over the place, and executed the wedding weekend with a sense of calmness every bride and her family needs. If anything went wrong on our wedding day we surely didn’t know about it. We’d recommend them 100x over! Thank you again, Anna!!

If you are looking for a wedding coordinator, I urge you to stop your search now and request to hire Anna's team at Rustic To Ritz Events! We had a wedding on Tybee Island, which I planned from Athens, GA.


I cannot even begin to describe the stress taken off of me when their services began. My only regret is not hiring them for all the planning. Her timelines were flawless and put a very type A and organized bride at ease. She communicated with me very frequently and asked me questions that I would have never even thought of to think about.


On the day of the wedding, Anna was so incredibly kind and supportive. She coordinated with my many vendors (8 plus) throughout the entire month, and on the day of. Even with some hiccups that I did know about, Anna was quick to calmly solve and move about the wedding in a graceful and professional manner. I really can not recommend her enough. Thank you for orchestrating the best day of my life!

Affordability is what first drew me to Rustic To Ritz Events. Anna's personality is what made me stay. She is incredibly sweet and always has a smile on her face.


Her calm demeanor is what made me so calm on the day of. The timeline that Anna made was complimented by everyone, vendors and guests, who saw it for its amazing detail. I'm a little neurotic and prefer to handle many things myself but Anna having my back allowed me to enjoy my day so much more. She picked up the slack that some vendors left and packed up our hall at the end of the night. She even helped my mother-in-law plan the MAB. So glad we hired her!

Anna did an absolutely outstanding job from start to finish. We all know how stressful this time can be and she made it absolutely seamless. Anna has went above and beyond to make our wedding day a truly fairy tale experience. We had forgotten to pick up a rental and a few hours before the wedding start Anna took her own money and time and ran to the rental company to pick up a guitar and amp for us. If you are coming across Rustic To Ritz Events, look no further; it will be the best choice you make. Wish we could give her 6 stars.
