From Clients

Viviane and Adam
The Arizona Biltmore

“Working with Rhonda took a huge weight off my shoulders.  With my own attention to detail and desire for perfection, it was definitely tough for me to feel that another person could execute my vision.  However, the moment I met Rhonda, I felt entirely confident she could do it.  Rhonda was reassuring, organized, diligent, proactive and extremely precise.  She communicated regularly and effectively with me to make sure I was up to speed and on board with all wedding happenings.  Hiring Rhonda made it possible for me to ‘let go’ and enjoy my wedding.  Thank you Rhonda!”

“As we started planning our wedding, we felt one of the most important things was to enjoy the day itself and not be distracted or stressed out. It was so nice to have Rhonda who we knew we could trust and who would make sure our day so special. Along the way, Rhonda was able to give us fresh ideas, helped us choose the right vendors and keep us close to our budget (which never seems easy when planning a wedding!).  She was so much fun to work with and we still keep in touch.”

“Half way through the process of planning my wedding, we realized that we had taken on way too much and needed help! A friend recommended Rhonda so we called her right away. She immediately knew what to do and alleviated our stress instantly. She is very organized and kept us on track all the way to our special day. Our wedding was flawless and we couldn’t have done it without her!”

“I can’t say enough great things about Rhonda. Our wedding was beyond amazing and I will always be thankful to her for that. I was the last of my close girlfriends to tie the knot so I’d been to my fair share of weddings. I wanted something different for my big day – something that hadn’t been done before and that our friends and family would always remember. Rhonda helped bring all the ideas I had to life. Every detail was thought out and perfect. Since I don’t live in Arizona, we were planning from afar (which should be difficult) but somehow Rhonda made it seem easy. Whenever I think back to my wedding day, it makes me happy and that’s exactly as it should be!”

“Rhonda Rush is an incredible wedding planner.  When I learn a client has hired Impact Events, I am not only excited because Rhonda is a blast to work with but because I know that my clients are in great hands.  She is a true advocate for her couples and does her very best to make sure that their wedding dreams come to fruition.  Her energy is contagious! She is so fun to work with and does an amazing job with execution and keeping the event flowing.  Her design ideas are fresh and fun and I have yet to work an event that didn’t do just what her name says it will…make an Impact!”
