Last weekend we had the wedding not only of our dreams but also probably the dream wedding for many of our guests. My husband Michael and myself first met Edna for coffee back at the beginning of the year and the connection was made immediately—hands down one of the best decisions we have ever made was to entrust our dream to her capable hands. From save the dates to invitations to napkins and then the enchanted venue itself there was not a single detail that was left to chance or forgotten. The interplay of design, color, whimsy, everything was evident everywhere you looked—sometimes very obvious and sometimes subtle but the end effect was magical. We held our wedding and reception at the New England Aquarium and Edna and her team managed to convert what could be a cavernous and overly stimulating environment into an intimate space that flowed perfectly with our vision and always an undercurrent of shear elegance. From the flowers to the table settings to the dance floor and lighting we came as close to perfection that you can get in our eyes.
Working with Edna was like working with your favorite sibling and someone who you just knew would never let you down but also tell you the truth and not just what you wanted to hear. She knew when to let us roam free and when to pull us back to safety. I would absolutely trust her with any event that we might plan in the future. Each one of her suggestions and decisions were spot on—amazing!!
The last month or so of planning—enter Kasie. Where do I start? How can one individual be in so many places and think of so many details and never lose track of a single item—she is truly Superwoman in our book. We had been warned that things go wrong but no one but us would know it but operationally the whole wedding was flawless from what we could tell. I honestly don’t know how she does it but she does and it is all done with humor and grace and love. Edna and Kasie ROCK!!

I am not sure there are words to fully express how amazing Edna, Kasie and the EFD Creative team were to work with. My wedding day could not have been more perfect and I know so much had to do with the great work that the team Edna and Kasie pulled together. Edna and Kasie were both easy to work with, always available to answer questions or bounce ideas off of. Edna is a fountain of knowledge and resources for anything wedding related and has an amazing way of taking small details and turning them into a complete and incredible final product. I found both Edna and Kasie supportive of what my husband and I wanted to put emphasis on for our special day and ways of incorporating all of our ideas. They both had great organization and understood the flow of each part of the process, which made working with them feel very controlled and comfortable. These ladies are easy to talk to, sweet, creative... simply superwomen at their jobs. I could not recommend anyone more highly and am so thankful that I had them with me for the entire process for they made it fun, involved very little stress, and everything turned out better than I could have imagined.
Kasie and Edna are fantastic to work with and are wedding planning pros. Kasie has the most detailed organization and handled every aspect of wedding planning with a professional and upbeat outlook. Edna has great insight into vendor selection and really knows the Boston/New England market ins and outs. I would highly recommend EFD Creative to any bride looking for a planner. They make the overwhelming process of planning your big day easy and fun!
I was able to relax and enjoy my daughters wedding knowing Kasie was in charge. She was a pleasure to work with, always ready with a smile. She caught many things we might have missed and ensured that everything went smoothly the day of. I had complete confidence in her.
Edna and Kasie made our wedding beautiful. Edna connected us with amazing vendors. She also guided the design and theme of our wedding which we loved! Kasie is an angel! She seamlessly handled all the logistics leading up to the wedding and on the day of the wedding. Could not have done it without EFD.
Kasie was a total pleasure to work with! She was organized, responsive and very open to our somewhat non-traditional wedding. She listened carefully to what we wanted and communicated with all of the vendors in a way that took a lot of the work off of our plates. Thanks to Kasie the wedding weekend went so incredibly smoothly. Everything happened on time and in a relaxed way. With Kasie's help planning, we had all of our T's crossed and our I's dotted before the wedding weekend began so that we could just enjoy our wedding. Kasie is upbeat, positive, energetic and a truly wonderful person to have by your side through the wedding planning process. I'd highly recommend her!
Kasie Blanchette from efd creative event planning was a delight to work with and made the execution and planning my daughter’s wedding flow smoothly and efficiently. She thought of every detail, was always responsive and kept the ball rolling in terms of deadlines and consideration of the many details involved in planning a wedding. In addition, her upbeat and sparkly personality made it all really fun. I would highly recommend Kasie and efd creative event planning to anyone planning a wedding!
EFD Creative was such an amazing team to work with! As we began wedding planning I was in my first year of law school and knew that we couldn't possibly do it ourselves. We searched for a team that would be able to cover every single aspect of the wedding efficiently, and found our match. After we met Edna I knew we could relax and unwind. She immediately contacted vendors and gave me several options. Throughout out the whole process we lived in Houston, TX and only made two trips home. One trip to pick out the decor and venue, and another for the tasting, flowers, engagement photos, mock table, and church (which they coordinated all on the same day at one location!!). Ultimately they made the process a lot easier and less stressful on our lives. They were also patient with us and our busy schedule. So many decisions needed to be made, but our schedule was just so busy that we sometimes could not spare a thought on the wedding. To ensure that tasks were completed Kasie would consolidate everything onto a to do list for a timely efficient meeting over the phone when I did I have time, and that was everything to my life! Kasie was honestly just heaven sent. When wedding planning (especially with a guest count of 325) you will always have something that needs to be addressed, and realistically people are just busy with other important aspects of life making it become overwhelming. Luckily EFD takes that feeling away and makes the process as seamless as possible. They worked around my schedule, maximized our times together, and had EVERYTHING in order at ALL times. They were thorough, responsive, professional and such a pleasure to work with. Ultimately they made our dream wedding come true, and we are forever thankful for all of their hard work!!
When I found out my daughter was ready to plan her wedding I immediately began searching for a great team that could help us along the way. When I first talked to Edna we had an amazing conversation, and I knew I found our match! As the mother of the bride Edna/Kasie were able to help me save money. They are very efficient and quickly put my worries and questions at ease, while walking me through the hectic process. They also provided us with remarkable vendors that worked amazing together! We were so thrilled to know this day was going to be amazing for my daughter and son-in-law. No task was too big or little for them to address, making me feel comfortable asking for their help. This team was a pleasure to work with and have my recommendation to any parent who wants to ensure their child has a fantastic, meaningful, and beautiful wedding.
We loved working with Edna, Kasie and her team - our wedding day was a beautiful success.
My wife and I live in NYC but got married in Boston. Through research and recommendations we found and ultimately selected EFD Creative.
We were very impressed with Edna's and Kasie's professionalism, their structured work and accommodating our needs and meeting times - as we were planning our wedding remotely, these aspects were very important to us.
EFD Creative pointed us to great, professional vendors and supported us throughout the work with these.
We very much liked that Edna and Kasie supported, yet also challenged our ideas.
The actual wedding day was perfectly executed and managed by Kasie and her team - both in terms of logistics and design. My wife and I were able to enjoy the entire day as all planning etc was quietly managed in the background.
As a testament to EFD's excellent work, we received (and continue to) many compliments from our guests on the wedding day.
We definitely recommend EFD's services!
I had the pleasure of meeting Edna and being introduced to EFD Creative almost 10 years ago when I entered the hospitality industry. Over my decade long career I have worked side by side with various planners and designers. I have seen all there is to see with almost 500 weddings under my belt. When it came time for my very own Big Day there was absolutely no question who my husband and I wanted to work with. Edna and Kasie simply understood us. They listened, created and designed based on who we are as a couple and our story. What we couldn't put in words they designed flawlessly through images. Edna and Kasie were a sounding board for our ideas, our challenges and the inevitable family drama that comes with planning a wedding. Their recommendations were spot on. All aspects of our wedding were personal to our journey as a couple and this team understood that.
Day-of was 100% spot on. To say our wedding was exactly how I imagined it would be is an understatement. It was more. As an event professional myself, I am a stickler for timeline and details. However, I woke up the morning of my wedding knowing I was in the best of hands. I didn't look at a clock. I didn't ask questions. I didn't have to come up with Plan B or C, even when my brother-in-law lost our wedding bands...Kasie was the one who tracked them down! She saved our vows (and my brother-in-law's life :) )
When I think back on the details of our wedding day, these two ladies stand out amongst it all. I am honored to call them friends and blessed to have been able to work with such a tremendously skilled team for over a year!
We can't imagine our wedding without Kasie!
We hired Kasie as a day-of-coordinator. We thought that would mean meeting with her a couple of times as the day approached - we couldn't have been more wrong! The level of attention and involvement Kasie shared with us is not properly described by that title. From our initial consultation, she began by taking the time to really listen to what we wanted out of the day and gave suggestions on how to make it even better. She was enthusiastic, genuinely involved, constantly in touch by phone and e-mail, and always there for advice when we needed it. Kasie was so responsive to e-mails we find it hard to believe we weren't her only clients!
Kasie's level of organization is un-paralleled. We knew she was keeping track of everything and we were just able to relax and plan. She broke down what seemed like a daunting amount of tasks into very easy to achieve goals and make it manageable. She was able to take what could have been a very stressful situation and turn it into a really fun journey.
Beyond just keeping us organized, she was really supportive of our personal touches (even ones we thought would be too quirky) and didn't blink an eye at our plan for DIY projects - even sending over Etsy pages that matched things we had discussed in our initial meeting.
She was very professional and interacted and worked well with our other vendors - even stepping in herself to contact vendors when we needed her to.
Once the day got here there was never a moment we felt she wasn't totally on top of everything. If anything went wrong that day we STILL don't know about it! Kasie made sure our only concern that day was having a wonderful time and enjoying the moment.
We really can't recommend Kasie and EFD Creative enough. Out of all of our wedding expenses this one was well worth it!

Words cannot express my gratitude to the EFD team for making my wedding day a complete success! I worked with Kasie throughout the planning process and could not be more pleased.
Hiring an EFD planner is by far the best wedding investment a couple can make! Kasie held my hand every step of the way. She kept me organized and on schedule. She was always willing and available to help - literally gets back to every email promptly, even when I sent her multiple per day. When choices got tough, Kasie helped me see the pros and cons to come to a decision. When vendors were difficult, Kasie was on top of it so I never had to deal with a thing. She made wedding planning fun instead of stressful.
Kasie is so sweet to work with; she got along with our guests and vendors. Everyone raved about her! Above all, I LOVED working with her. My meetings and frequent check-ins with Kasie were the best part of the planning process. I will truly miss it! Kasie made me lists for packing, a payment reminder list, and weekly to-do lists leading up to the wedding. I wanted to have everything done a week in advance so I could enjoy my wedding week. Kasie kept me on task and on time, I couldn't have done it without her!
I was naturally nervous on the big day, but Kasie arrived and made me feel completely at ease. She had a detailed timeline of the entire day so everyone knew where we needed to be. We had our set timeline, but Kasie was on top of unexpected occurrences too - like the rain. It started pouring on my way to the ceremony, so Kasie brought me big beautiful umbrellas to take pictures outside afterward. She even ran back and forth out in the pouring rain to get any items we needed from other areas of the venue - she truly goes above and beyond!!
I will always look back to my wedding day and remember Kasie. She was more than a planner, but a friend who was by my side through it all. Thank you Kasie and EFD for making my wedding dreams come true!!
Edna of EFD Creative is truly one of the greatest people you’ll ever meet! From the moment I first spoke with her on the phone, I thought that we would possibly use her services for day-of coordination. However, after my husband and I met her in person – we immediately knew that we wanted her expertise and eye for design all the way through! She was able to help shape our initial thoughts into a spectacular wedding that we and our guests couldn't believe. From vendor suggestion and selection (and working her magic to save us money where she could) to finding just the right item to be displayed on the gift table to having her team (and terrific husband) with her on the final day so that nothing was even an inch out of place– she lent her discerning and tasteful eye for design to the planning process – and we couldn't have been more thrilled. Being a gay couple, we wanted our overall wedding look and feel to be more masculine than a typical wedding - and she was able to deliver on that premise and more! Our friends, family and guests are still commenting about the day several months later. I think the best thing about working with Edna, was that we gained a friend!
EFD Creative is the BEST of the BEST!
I didn’t think a wedding planner was something we needed to invest in. I viewed the idea as a “luxury” but over time that changed. We didn't realize it at the time, but calling Edna from EFD Creative was the single most important decision we made in planning our wedding. She immediately set us up with the best vendors in the business – the planning started to take shape immediately.
Edna’s ability to really connect with us both individually and as a couple was nothing short of amazing. Edna assured me that it would all come together and taught us to trust the creative process. Edna is a master at her craft and her eye for design and for perfecting every last detail is phenomenal. She had the ability to extract our vision and guide us in making sure everything we wanted was flawlessly expressed ~ from our save the dates - all the way down to our wedding favors. Edna branded our wedding perfectly!
Kasie from EFD Creative was our Wedding Day Manager and she is outstanding! Our venue offered a ‘day of coordinator,’ but we quickly began to realize that the venue’s focus is not on the couple, but rather on ensuring the venue is following their protocols. Kasie started working with us long before our wedding day, making sure that every detail was perfected. She kept track of the logistics and worked with all of our vendors to make sure that everything was coordinated. She created an extensive timeline that organized every minute of the day and was the primary contact for all of our vendors and made sure she was available to everyone on the day.
We felt completely covered from the beginning of our engagement all the way to our wedding day. I didn’t worry about anything because I knew that Edna and Kasie always had everything under control. My husband and I were fully present on the most important day of our lives.
Thank you Edna and Kasie for giving us the gift of a lifetime. You are amazing and we love you so much! J&C
Three months before my wedding day I was in a panic! As organized as I am I realized I needed additional support. That is when I reached out to EFD Creative to see if there was any way they could help in a time crunch. In short, they absolutely exceeded my expectations.
Edna was my own personal designer extrodinare! Edna knew right away which vendors would match my vision. Because I had waited until my fifties to marry, it was really important to me that every detail had meaning. She worked with the invitation company to create a personalized wedding logo which carried throughout the entire event. Edna also collaborated with the local florist to bring in elements that the florist had never done before. I felt like the whole look of my wedding matched exactly the vision in my mind and I was thrilled.
While Edna focused on the design element Kasie took care of all the logistical details. Kasie was amazing, a logisical goddess! She went above and beyond to make sure all of the details came together. She worked with my entire family, bridal party & all of my vendors to make sure the whole weekend came together without any mishaps. She was the perfect liaison between me and all of my vendors not only at the wedding but every day leading up to the weekend. Any questions I had leading up to the wedding day Kasie was already on top of everything one thousand percent!
Edna & Kasie were a dream come true. I can't image my wedding day without their help! I fell in love with them during the process! They have become a wonderful part of my wedding day memory!
