Britt and her team were so amazing in helping me choose a venue, realistically look at my budget, give me honest feedback and plan the most amazing wedding! She got back to me within hours, and talked me off a ledge a few times and I could not have felt more comfortable putting my wedding in her hands! It felt like she understood exactly what I wanted and was like a friend planning my perfect day! Thanks!Sent on 09/11/2017

My experience with 42N could not have been better. Throughout the entire year prior to my wedding weekend, they were there every step of the way with an unprecedented level of responsiveness and competence. Not only did Francie and her team execute on the most incredible wedding weekend (rehearsal dinner, wedding, brunch) involving significant logistics - but her guidance, friendship, professionalism, sense of calm were truly invaluable throughout the entire planning process. Her attention to detail, atheistic and swift ability to execute on anything and everything never ceased to amaze us. Thank you, thank you 42N from the bottom of my heart!!Sent on 10/18/2017
Francie is the Olivia Pope of wedding planning. Last minute crises’, family drama, you name it – she will simply fix it :)
