About 727 Event Planning

As a bride, I can remember how excited I was to start planning my wedding; in fact, I might have even started before I even met my husband! I loved the opportunity to go through detail after detail deciding what I wanted and how I could make it better. I loved planning my timeline and thinking about the logistics of the entire day. I have been a planner at heart all of my life. I remember in college my best friend saying, “Erica, really, a color coded itinerary for our spring break trip? You need to be an event planner."

I loved planning, I had a passion for planning, but I wanted the television career that I was going to school for. Fast forward five years later; I was working as a television reporter in Nashville, Tennessee when my husband proposed. While my career in television was fun and exciting, planning events was my passion. After getting engaged, I was fortunate enough to be able to leave my job as a television reporter and finally pursue my first love, full time....event planning! My first gig, of course was planning my OWN wedding. I figured if I was going to do a trial and error run with someone’s big day, it was going to be my own! I had a day-of wedding coordinator who put all of my planning into action (as the bride, I could not direct the groomsmen and family members down the aisle myself!) My coordinator validated my passion for event planning when she said she had never seen the level of planning that I had done, even from professional planners over the years. I was honored and ready to go full steam ahead with my event planning business!

While I knew how to make my dream come true, I knew that it took more than just planning my own wedding to help someone organize their day and make their dream come true. Just like my wedding, I was not ready to “experiment” with the most important day of someone’s life. So in my quest to learn more about planning weddings, I interned with a wedding planner. When that internship was over, I knew I had the skills to plan a great event, but like news; you get ONE SHOT to get it right. So to get a more formal education from the best in the business, I went to the University of California, Riverside where I earned my event planning certificate. I was taught by wedding planners who had years of experience under their belt. Their businesses had done so well that they didn’t hold back information... they were literally SO GOOD at what they did, they could afford to teach their competition! After my certificate, I began planning weddings on my own as well as helped other planners with large events they organized. My quest to always hone my skills continues, I am in the process of becoming certified by a nationally recognized bridal consultant organization.

I share all of this because I want you to know how much I love what I do and how much went into my preparation before I would even offer my services for YOUR big day. There are so many careers where one can say “this is business, this isn't personal” but wedding planning is NOT one of them. Weddings are very personal, they are very important (for you and for me); this is a day that you will look back and remember for the rest of your life. Simply put, I want in! I would be honored to be the conductor of your big day, I want to make your wedding memorable for all of the right reasons and I want the planning process to be fun and relaxing for you.

Love,

Erica K.

    Everyone agreed that hiring an "Erica" was one of the best things money was spent on the day of our event. Erica helped me think about items that I had never even thought or even remotely would have a had clue about for our day. Her planning guides are awesome and allows for no room for error. Erica was very attentive in making sure that we stayed on timelines and that each of our vendors was kept on a strict schedule. My day definitely wouldn't have turned out as amazing with out my "Erica." The day of the event Erica became a bee exterminator extradonaire! We had a serious bee issue at the ceremony location (which I didn't know about until after) and she was able to get the respective personal involved and make sure that the ceremony was going to happen without the risk of someone being stung- and it worked out that way. Erica and her team took care of everything the day of, I didn't have to put a vase, napkin, or sand ceremony vase in its place- her team had all of our tables put together and taken apart without a single word from me. I would definitely recommended Erica to anyone without hesitation because she is as good as it gets!

    Erica was instrumental in my wedding planning process. I reached out to her after I got engaged because I previously worked with her and remembered how incredibly organized she was with her own wedding planning. Even though she lived across the country from me she provided me with a checklist to be sure we hadn't overlooked anything and made suggestions on any decisions we still needed to make. There were so many details that I would have never thought of if it weren’t for Erica. She also organized all of our contracts/vendor information to assist with our payments that we still needed to make, timeline for the wedding day and contact list for all of our vendors. Her upbeat personality and positive attitude put all of my nerves at ease. I would highly recommend Erica!!!
