Dream Wedding from a Dream Planner

Over a month has passed since our wedding- yet Kevin and I are still stumbling, trying to find the words to express our gratitude to Andrew and his team for giving us the best day of our lives.

Before Andrew, we were wracked with anxiety. There was so much that we didn't know, and yet there was so much that had to be done. Immediately. And while we knew that we needed help, we did not know where to turn.

So as one does, we picked up our phones and looked towards Google.

Andrew Roby Events ("ARE") was at the top of the list for event planning services. After scrolling through ARE's website, reading articles about Andrew's background, watching his inspiring videos and - most importantly, looking at photographs of his work, I just knew that he wouldn't be available or would be out of our price range. After all, it was clear that he was a giant in the industry. There was just no way! But I crossed my fingers and sent an inquiry anyway. I was gobsmacked to receive a positive response and to hear of his willingness to scheduled an exploratory Zoom call with us to discuss our needs and wants.

Things changed after our first meeting with Andrew. My fianc茅 and I had been lost in a thicket, but Andrew took our hands and led us to our destination. Not only were we granted complete access to a wedding database (that helped us track deadlines, our budget, and guest list), but to Andrew himself. He coached us and helped us to formulate our vision for the wedding. We told him our dream, and he not only designed, orchestrated and executed every detail - he exceeded every element our fantasy.

I've included pictures that not only showcase the beauty that Andrew created, but that also show the love that he gave us through his work. Kevin and I will forever be grateful to Andrew. What he did for us, our family, and our friends can never be repaid. He is, by far, the best.

Outstanding Wedding Planner & Wedding Designer

Andrew and team are superb (to say the least)! We started planning our nuptials in DC but quickly found out moving it would give us more bang for our buck. Without missing a beat, Andrew planned the wedding of our dreams in Arkansas. Being their first wedding in the state, they were able to source exceptional vendors from decor to catering to hair and make-up. Wedding day is when the team shined brightness. Everything ran smoothly, vendor timeline was sent out weeks in advance, all payments had been settled, guests knew where to go, they ordered food for the bridal party for hair and make-up, and all we had to do was show up. As a bride, the comfort of being stress free weeks before the wedding because your wedding planner took care of everything was worth every cent. I have yet to hear anything negative about the day from all involved and guests were so impressed with Andrew. Even after the wedding, Andrew made sure we met all contractual agreements, equipment was returned and we didn't even have to think about it. He endured the videographer sent our teaser within 7 days, and we got it 6 days later.

Oh, and I failed to mention (shame on me), that Andrew is also a wedding designer. I was never one to dream of getting married nor did I have a Pinterest board he could follow. Andrew asked us a series of questions and for general ideas of what we liked. From there is curated a wedding design and experience that was perfect - even down to a wedding scent.

If you're looking for someone to plan your wedding or next event, stop scrolling! This is the person you need to hire.

We can't thank you enough Andrew and team. We will be using you again!!

PS: will add professional photos once they're received

Andrews is the BEST!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Andrew! I called Andrew with a 7 day notice that we decided to have a microwedding and asked if he could help us out. Not only did he find our officiant, videographer, florist in less than 24 hours... he also took care of all of the logistics the day of the wedding. From the music, to holding my flowers & dress, to organizing the group photos - he was a lifesaver. The day was perfect and Andrew was a BIG part in making it that way!
