About Us

R.L. Sisson Events is a wedding planning business based in Bar Harbor, Maine, that also serves the Portland, Bangor, and Presque Isle areas. Rachel, owner and planner, grew up surrounded by planning and entertaining. This naturally led her to a hospitality career, where she first started gaining her experience. Her experience drove her into launching her very own wedding planning business, which has been Rachel's passion ever since. Now, she works closely with each couple to help them plan and carry out the wedding of their dreams.

Services Offered
R.L. Sisson Events works with couples planning both small and large weddings. Rachel has put together two main package options to help couples with different needs. The Partial Planning package offers communication throughout the planning process, assistance with details and design, budget management assistance, remaining vendor selections, comprehensive timeline and schedules and overseeing the setup, issuing vendor payments and an onsite event team. If you are looking for the most comprehensive assistance when planning your big day, the Full-Service package will handle all your planning aspects.

  • Our wedding would not have been the same without Rachel Sisson and her team. We had family and friends traveling from all over the world and wanted to spend time with them vs trying to plan and organize. Rachel made it all come together so well, helping us simplify the decision making process so we could spend time with our family and friends!

    Thank you, Rushna and Jeff! It was a pleasure to work with you both. Such a special day, I was so lucky to be a part of it. Hope to see you and Sofia next time you're on the island! xoxo, Rachel
