"Samantha was a life saver when I needed a venue last minute to hold my event. She was prompt responding throughout the  planning process and always very pleasant and cheerful. Thanks to her everything fell into place and everyone had an amazing time.

Everything was wonderful, from beginning to end.

She is very, very easy to work with and went far beyond my expectations providing excellent professionalism."

"Sam Kanter saved me time, money, and lots of hassle!  I cannot say enough good things about her.  She was my event planner for a conference of 70 higher education professionals from some of the most prestigious colleges and universities in the country.  I was tasked with the responsibility of coordinating the signature dinner event and cocktail reception.   I was stuck.  I had no idea how to even begin this process.

At the advice of a colleague, I reached out to Sam Kanter to find out if she could help me find a place to host my event.  Sam had an excellent selection of venues with a variety of price points. To be honest, the selection of the venue was quite difficult because all of the options were so attractive.  Ultimately, we decided on Commonwealth in Kendall Square (which turned out to be fantastic).  The day of the event, everything went off without a hitch and fun was had by all.  For me, the best part was that I didn’t have to worry about ANY of the details because Sam was all over it!  If you’re looking for an event planner who is super organized, meticulously detailed, incredibly responsive, fun, and just an overall wonderful person, then Sam Kanter is your woman.  The next time I have an event, I won’t waste my time trying to do it myself.  I’ll just call Sam."

"We just returned to Atlanta and are writing to thank you for a spectacular event. We hosted a wedding rehearsal dinner for the bridal party and a large group of out of town guests ranging in age from two to eighty-five. The evening could not have been better. The food was sensational through each course. It was impressive to see the highest quality dining delivered timely to so many people. Truly an impressive performance. Worthy of particular note is Samantha Kanter. From our first planning session several months ago she made good suggestions to enhance the experience for our party. Her thoroughness and attention to detail made us look great as the hosts for the evening, and gave our family a most memorable experience. We also appreciate her efforts to make sure that one late arriving family in our party was able to enjoy the full meal. You have a very talented and dedicated team whose efforts we truly appreciated. Please share our thanks with everyone who worked the event."

She has always been attentive person about details and a wonderful individual to who understands my concept of well-organization. If you haven't experienced a day with Sam about your event, well don't be afraid and work with a real professional."
