Single-handedly the most important detail

I hired Eileen just over 3 months out from the wedding day, at the time, much to my then-fiancés chagrin. He felt we didn’t need it, and it was a waste of money 7-months into planning. But I had done my homework, and Eileen’s pricing was fair, and she was absolutely polished. From our first call, it was an amazing fit; I felt the weight of the world lifted with Eileen’s reassurance. She went into action immediately, taking over all of the vendor communication and confirmations, keeping me accountable on my checklist items I had left, reminding me of dates I’d given her, provided drafted and a final perfected timeline, and was patient, flexible and direct [but kind] with all of us the whole process. She also attended a last minute in-person venue meeting with extremely short notice — she instantly showed my guy her value, and there was no question that this service was worth every penny and more. The way my stress level was impacted by having her on our team was invaluable.

Maria and Emily were my day-of girls, and though I was sad to not have Eileen available for my date (she told me during our first call that she was already booked that day), she remained available to me right up until the night before the wedding, and her two stand ins were equally fantastic. It torrentially downpoured the entire day, and we were quite sure that it would from about 3 days in advance (ah Sept. 2023, we’ll never forget your very rainy Saturdays). Again, Eileen sprung to action ensuring extra umbrellas were brought to our partially outdoor venue, that all vendors were prepared to shift gears to accommodate, and that contingency plan details were confirmed and in order. Emily and Maria kept the energy high and the timeline to a tee. I cannot recommend An Affair to Remember ENOUGH, and honestly can’t imagine having had the extremely successful, wet, stress-free and perfect wedding weekend that we had without Eileen and her team. I’m sure I’m forgetting details they handled but man, this was easily the best money we spent this year. Husband is totally a believer now lol.
With Love, Joey & Liz

100/10 would recommend Eileen!!!

I can not recommend Eileen enough for all of her help the day of our wedding. I am a detail oriented person so at first I thought I wouldn’t need any help. But towards the last few months of our big day, I found Eileen and I’m so thankful that I did! Eileen reached out to all of my vendors and helped me keep track of everything so that nothing was missed. This was essential as we had tons of last minute changes and she really help to alleviate that stress. When our big day finally arrived, Eileen was there to take care of everything and more! She knew what I needed before I even had to ask. When my bustle ripped, she was right there with safety pins to fix my dress. She anticipated me being thirsty and when I turned around she had another drink ready to go. She took care of all the communication between my vendors and made sure everyone (including family) were where they needed to be. I truly can’t recommend Eileen enough and stress how essential she was to making our day so special!

Eileen brought our wedding vision to life!

My husband and I knew from the beginning that we wanted to hire a wedding planner to make the process smoother since we both worked full time, live in Virginia and were planning a wedding in New Jersey. Eileen was our first of 5 planner interviews and we loved how reassuring she was and her maternal nature. She felt like the most natural choice and I am so glad we hired her. She was very easy to communicate with and very responsive. She did a great job of explaining all that she is able to do with full planning and what we would be responsible for and breaking up tasks into manageable chunks so we didn't get overwhelmed. We appreciated that she was always very patient with us, even when we dragged our feet on getting certain things done. She helped me a lot with some family drama (inevitable to come up when planning a wedding) and supported the steps necessary to ensure we got the outcome we wanted. The week leading up to the wedding was relaxing since everything had been taken care of and all we needed to do was stick to the timeline which is exactly what we wanted, to just show up and enjoy the day. Everything came together so perfectly and beautifully, we truly could not have been happier. Our guests had a wonderful time and could not stop raving about it being the best wedding they'd been to - also one of my and my husband's goals. Eileen really was the backbone to all of that and we could not have done it without her. She knows all the right people for what you need and if she doesn't, she will find them for you. Please do yourselves a favor and hire Eileen to plan your wedding :)
