Amazing and made all my wedding dreams come true, even when it wasn’t easy!

Esme did a fabulous job planning my wedding! She took time to understand my vision and communicated every step of the way. Her vast experience and relationships with vendors helped immensely. Esme designed unique floral arrangements and signage that turned out amazing and we got lots of compliments on the details. I am so grateful for Esme’s team and all their hard work throughout the process. I would highly recommend them!

Review of Bodamaestra wedding planning & management

Working with Esme was one of the best and most important decisions we made for our wedding! I cannot emphasize enough how much we loved working with Esme (and her team!) and how much she really made the whole event and day as wonderful as possible. I am a planner and organizer by nature, but hiring Esme brought not only a trusted partner into my thoughts and own plans, but a very professional, well connected, seasoned wedding pro who made sure nothing was left unthought of, and that everything was taken care of, while shielding us from the stress and burden of coordinating such an important event with several vendors and tons of details! Esme’s approach really showed us how smooth, well thought of, and stress free this experience could be, and I felt completely well guided and safe with Esme at the wheel. Her approach also strikes a great balance of getting all the details covered without making it seem overwhelming. The amount of meetings, the communication style etc.. was never too much or too little. It also helped that Esme is really kind, personable, and receptive of our vision and ideas and was able to take our choppy thoughts and create a cohesive, beautiful day that we envisioned. She also went above and beyond during the whole process and also (unknown to us at the time!) made a quick, slick save on the wedding day when something didn’t show up from one of our vendors. She went out of her way to personally solve the issue before we even had the chance to notice, and that’s just another example of being in good hands with Esme and her ensuring that our day was stress free and just an incredible day for us to soak in all the love, beauty and happiness of the big day. We look back on our wedding day, and are so happy with how everything turned out, it was our dream wedding, and we are so thankful to Esme for that. Oh! Also, Esme’s team is beyond professional, caring, sharp and organized… they all are so incredibly helpful and friendly and all work together so well. Would recommend to anyone!
