Thank you for everything. From the moment we met you, we knew we were in good hands. Your ideas and designs are amazing, and we feel blessed to have you designing the floral for our daughter’s wedding. I am certain everything will be beautiful! We appreciate all that you have done for us so far…

We just returned from our honeymoon, and I wanted to thank you properly. The flowers were AMAZING! I loved your energy as you helped me create the perfect day. We will always remember how wonderful you were. You have an amazing calming effect, a beautiful sense of perspective and a keen sense of organization. Thank you so much. We could not have done it without you!

-L. Hooper

-R. Henry

Thank you so much for the fantastic floral creations you made for my wedding. They were truly beautiful, and honestly one of the best parts of my wedding. I really appreciate all of your help with the design and hope I have the change to work with you in the future.

-J. Michael

Thank you for all you did to make our wedding day a success! It was a lovely evening, and we are both so appreciative! We could not have done it without you.

-S. Greer

Design by Sage helped me plan my son's rehearsal dinner. They also did my floral and decor! I cannot say enough good things about my experience, the night turned out exactly as I had hoped! Working with Kellye was a pleasure. She took all the stress out of both the planning and the actual night! She was always prompt in answering my questions and always very professional in a very warm way. They listened to my ideas and delivered the night I had envisioned. The floral was just as they described. My tables were beautifully decorated. All an all it was a perfect experience! I feel that they are reasonably priced and a great value for your investment!

-K. Falkenhagen

I can't begin to express my gratitude for the services Andrea and Kellye provided for me, my family, and my new husband! You both were absolutely a true gem to work with from the very beginning. I appreciate all the planning up to the special day and then all the help on the rehearsal and the wedding day. You both made everything run so smooth and I didn't have to worry about anything! Thanks again. I would recommend your services to everyone I know.

- C. Bradley

I cannot even begin to express what an incredible job Kellye and Andrea did from start to finish. We had an unfortunate start when our original venue burned to the ground, yes, burned. Everything that had been planned for eight months had to be re-planned in a matter of three months-vendors, venue, timeframes...just about everything. Sage to the rescue: Both Kellye and Andrea exemplified the characteristics of what every bride or MOB need throughout the planning challenge: professionalism, creativity, knowledge, timely, organized, detail oriented and experienced. Both young women have a tremendous amount of experience in the field and helped with any and all last minute issues that arose...and we let them! We let them make on the spot decisions because we knew we could trust their judgment-huge relief during those last days. I have no doubt that our daughter's wedding was every bit even more perfect because they had a hand in the details. I cannot say that I miss waking up with a list, but honestly, I miss talking daily with these two amazing young women!

- L. Mann

I never dreamed that I could have such a good time at my own daughter’s wedding! A glorious occasion was even more glorious because my daughter and I knew that not only had every detail been addressed but every possibility of a problem had also been considered. This is because we were in the expert hands and caring hearts of Design By Sage, a dynamic duo with down home consideration and uptown taste and business acumen. Though my daughter and I work a combined 90+ hours a week in Houston (her more than me), we were determined to make an out of the city out of this world wedding on a very grounded budget. Design By Sage joined us in our determination to treat ourselves, family and friends to a truly special Hill Country wedding. They were available, helpful, and knowledgeable and instinctively knew when to step in and when to step out. My only wish is that I could be granted a do over, and I would do it all the same.

Thank you for all of your follow up since the wedding...your sweet sweet note made my day. It was such a pleasure working with yall. You kept me so calm, you made me laugh, you just had the best made for such an enjoyable planning process, and for a wedding that blew my mind away...I was in heaven, and I had an ABSOLUTE BLAST! It was perfect...thank you for all that you did to make it such a perfect day, and such a happy memory. It was perfect! Truly!

- A. Feinsilver Kimball

Thank-you for the wonderful job you did for Anna and Tripp's wedding. You both were so wonderfully calming. Since I stopped visiting to try the food kind of late, I really appreciated the fact that you gave me a heads up when they were going to do their first dance so I could be ready to dance with Tripp. (I never would have been in place). And thank-you for the boxes to go. Perfect! It all went so fast. Weddings in Mexico last 'till dawn. Not a bad idea after all that preparation! Your calm directions were greatly appreciated. True Professionals!

- M. Kimball

Thank you for your sweet note concerning the party. I honestly don’t know how we would have had a party without the two of you. I am just so thankful you were available to help on short notice. Your design suggestions and the floral arrangements were perfect. Everything went very smoothly, the weather was wonderful and the setting as well, not to mention the food. We can’t wait to see the pictures. Best of luck to you as the holiday season approaches. You make your job seem effortless, but I know all the experience, contacts, time and talent that is behind it. If we ever have another Wimberley party, you will be our first call!

- M. Chandler

Design by Sage - These girls are the BEST! I had a somewhat "out-of-the-box" type wedding and they made it very classy and beautiful. They were able to accent both of our personalities in all of the, decor, flow of the wedding, etc. All of my attendants loved them - everyone is use to coordinators being short-tempered and irritable, but these girls were so pleasant my friends were so pleased! I love, love, loved my flowers. They were bright and cheery, just as I had hoped. They managed all of the details while keeping me calm and stress-free. Even my cheap husband said they were worth every penny :) I can't not say enough good things about these sweet, stylish, and fun girls! Thanks Andrea and Kellye!!

Planning my wedding was such a fun experience for me.  I was living in Colorado at the time while planning a wedding back home in Texas.  At first I was a little anxious to see how difficult it would be to plan from so far away, but immediately after talking to Kellye & Andrea I had no stress whatsoever.  Their experience, ideas, style, and personalities were a perfect fit for me.  I was never the girl dreaming of her wedding from a young age, but they were somehow able to create a gorgeous wedding from the simple ideas that I had. 

Years later I continue to receive compliments from guests at our wedding about how beautiful the decor & floral arrangements were, not to mention how much FUN we had.  I greatly attribute everything being so perfect to Kellye & Andrea.  Aside from the decorations, they did a great job on keeping the events flowing and running smoothly.  They also did a fantastic job as the point man for all of the vendors.  Personalities in a somewhat stressful situation are pivotal in my opinion, and both Kellye and Andrea always made me feel like everything was running smoothly and there was no need to worry. 
Anyone considering using them for an event will not be disappointed.

With all of the stress that can get in the way of planning an important event, such as a wedding, it was a real comfort to have Kellye by our side during the entire process.  She put Gunnar and I at ease with her organization, professionalism and down to earth approach.  We decided to get married in the Hill Country, so we wanted “rustic elegance” to be the style of our wedding.  Kellye understood exactly what we had in mind and was able to help bring those details to life.  We have been married for several years now and we still hear many compliments about our special day and I give Kellye much of the credit.  I enjoyed working with Kellye so much that I missed our regular communications after the wedding was over.  During the 7 month planning process she became a part of the family!

Cullen and I want to express our gratitude for how wonderfully our wedding went on June 12th. During the engagement, the bride is always warned that something will go wrong during the wedding - but nothing went wrong during our wedding. In fact, everything was perfect! (As a devoted perfectionist, that is not something I usually say.) Not only did I feel like royalty all evening, but my friends and family - especially our grandparents - were treated so well. I can not write enough wonderful things about Andrea.  She was a joy to work with, and her ideas and experience in event planning helped my vision of the perfect wedding become a reality.  Andrea’s dedication and professionalism allowed me to relax and truly enjoy my wedding. I never felt stressed or anxious, even during the year’s worth of planning leading up to the event.  Perhaps most important to both Cullen and myself, Andrea made sure that our personalities were reflected in our ceremony and reception. She made sure we did not have a “one size fits all” wedding!  Because of the beautiful setting, the personalized service, and the incredible organization and planning, my wedding will be a memory that I will treasure.

I absolutely love Andrea and Kelly with Design by Sage! Andrea was so calm and helpful through the entire process, even the hectic days right before and of course the day of! There are so many little details that I had not considered before Andrea brought them up. The little things that can cause huge hiccups but seem to slide under the rug until a couple of days before the event. She helped us word our program well and offered suggestions such as: how to honor our dog who passed just before the wedding (he would have been our ring bearer). She came up with the wonderful idea of not replacing him in the ceremony but having the ushers deliver the rings on his collar before Josh and I entered- so we wouldn't have to get emotional at the sight. She was always there picking up any slack and there to guide us and keep us calm. The positive energy of these people and the company goes a long way and really, I can't imagine my wedding coordinated by anyone else. They were able to feel out each person's personality types and handled each person's concerns and expectations accordingly. I got a genuinely good feeling each time we met and each time she guided Josh and I during our special day- from getting ready to suggesting we eat in our Newlywed Suite before getting announced (so that we could eat uninterrupted and savor our moment as Bride and Groom), to making sure we got all of the "cake, toast and 1st dances" out of the way so we could finally enjoy all of our hard work! When Andrea left, my husband said, "That is a cool woman, she really orchestrated this entire day in a seamless fashion!". Never once did Andrea snap at us or boss us around- she maintained professionalism and control while keeping everybody on task. Thanks so much Andrea, Kelly and Design by Sage!!

My husband I traveled to the Texas Hill Country in search of the perfect wedding venue. We lived in Houston and needed someone we could trust to help us plan this exciting long distance celebration. Kellye Lawson was not only our wedding planner and right hand man, she became our friend. We had guests traveling from some of the most beautiful places in the United States and all were blown away by the true beauty of this day. The flowers were exquisitely designed. Every detail big and small was taken care of and most importantly, Kellye allowed me to just be a bride. She juggled it all; the food, the drinks, the photographer, the family, the friends, the music...I was able to sit back and enjoy the view of this precious day! It was truly magical. We will always treasure our time in the Texas Hill - Country and our new found friendship with our extraordinary wedding planner, Kellye Lawson.
