Emily was a joy from start to finish. She was hired as our planner for a small friends and family wedding. She made sure we hit all of our deadlines and decorated beautifully the day of. Our clean up the day after felt seamless because of all of the work they did day of. She made the entire process seamless. Thank you for everything, Emily!

Amazing and so wonderful to work with!

If you are thinking about hiring a wedding planner, you should and you should hire Emily! Throughout the whole planning experience she was so kind, courteous, helpful, and patient. She always had great ideas and suggestions. There was never any question or problem that was too big or small! Our venue manager bailed on us the day of our wedding and Emily and her team stepped in and took over extra responsibilities on top of their own AND working in a venue they had never worked in and they handled it with such grace and ease-no one was any the wiser. She lifted so much stress and anxiety from our plates and our day. I can’t imagine how I could have gotten through our planning and day of experience without her. It was easily the best decision we made for our wedding, as we were actually able to enjoy and be present in the best day of our lives because we had her! We are eternally grateful to her and her team for helping make our day so beautiful!! And now we get to work with her in planning our honeymoon!

Perfect Winter Wedding

Emily and her team are just good people. Everything they do is with kindness. Emily truly got to know us as a couple over 6 months of planning and provided ideas/insight every step of the way. She answered questions I didn’t know I had! Emily and her team handled everything the day of our wedding. I truly sat back and 100% relaxed. If there were issues with anything, I certainly didn’t know about them! Everything was set up and executed flawlessly. Our vision truly came to life exactly as I imagined. 1000% recommend booking with her asap!
