Creative, Attentive, Empathetic and Detail-Oriented!

Karen and her crew did absolutely everything behind the scenes so we could enjoy our destination wedding. For two years, she listened intently to our ideas and needs, no matter how eccentric or silly. She often made me feel like I was her only client, especially when my worries and nerves got the best of me. Since I鈥檓 a writer, I made good use of her online portal to keep track of contracts, fotos, ideas, feelings about family politics and more!

Karen is empathetic, organized, detail-oriented and all the things you would need in a wedding planner. She is capable of dealing with all kinds of personalities and negotiating great deals. The red velvet cake she got for us - oh my god. The best!! Her brother Kevin also built a sculpture just for us - we now have it on our wall at home. She also found us an amazing photographer and made sure we had an instant camera booth for our guests !

Over the two years we got to know Karen, it felt like we made a really great friend in North Carolina. Thank you so much for all that you and your crew did for us!!

The absolute Best

Eliza Paige Events planned our wedding this past October and WOW! The entire process was flawless. We worked mostly with Ashton during our process and she made life so much easier. I hate planning personally and any time I was struggling with the planning process Ashton was there for me to lean on. I swear if I had a nickel for every time she said "Dont worry, Ill take care of it" I would be rich! The word "No" is not in Eliza Paiges vocabulary! They ask the questions you didnt even think of and are fast in their responses. From communicating with vendors to coming to our vendor meetings with us, she was on top of everything. Ashton truly glows when shes wedding planning; Its admirable to see how passionate she is about making your dreams come to life. Ashton was extremely organized having a minute by minute timeline made for all the vendors and knew exactly where everything was supposed to be. I have met very few people that work as hard as these girls do! The day of our wedding she handled everything from start to finish and made sure our only task that day was get married and have fun. The day went off without a hitch and I owe it all to Eliza Paige. I would 1000% recommend them for anyone looking for wedding help. These girls are the real deal... they offer the full package and are genuinely there to make your wedding day and the process a seamless and memorable time. Thank you so much Eliza Paige!!!

Everything I could have asked for and more!

When I hired Ashton and Karen little did I know that they would blow my expectations of what a wedding planner should be out of the water. They helped with every detail of my wedding and knew what vision I had for my special day and went above and beyond to make it perfect. From working with all my vendors, to decorating the venue, to the amazing gift for me and my husband, they made sure it truly was the best day of my life. The love that they have for their job is evident in everything that they do. I had so many guests tell me this was the best wedding they have ever been to and I am sure that is because I choose Eliza Paige to help me plan it.
