    Hire Em immedietly!

    Em is honestly the best decision we made for our wedding; she was a fantastic partner, had everything 1000000% under control and properly listened and partnered with me. I had a hard time making decisions and she was the best sounding board, able to deal with some of the family politics that always exist and honestly just making the whole day a joy. I am SO happy that we decided to work with her and if anything, if I had to redo it, I would have given her more control over the whole event (we did day of). Do not hesitate to book her, she is fantastic and literally is a shining spot in the day, really enabling you to enjoy it. I had some family members who were VERY skeptical about the need in general for a planner, and literally every single one of them has come away from the event raving that Em is "worth her weight in gold." Don't read any more reviews, just hire her-- it will be the best decision you make for the day!

    Would recommend Em a million times over!

    My husband and I (and our parents), are so thankful we chose to work with Em. We began working with her on our Belle Mer wedding in late 2019, and her knowledge of the Newport area, relationships in the wedding industry, and expertise in terms of all things wedding etiquette were truly invaluable. She immediately helped us lock in the right vendors, hotel blocks, church, rehearsal dinner and farewell brunch locations, and so much more - all without us having to make several trips to Newport. In 2020, as the idea of postponing our wedding became more and more real, Em was a guiding light of hope and positivity. We cautiously and optimistically continued to plan, but once we made the decision to postpone, she immediately reached out to every one of our vendors for their availability so that we could identify the best date to switch to. She made a disappointing process painless, and we didn't have to change a single vendor or venue. Em was always so transparent and kept us up-to-date on the mandate and guidance changes in Rhode Island so we knew exactly what to expect on our day. As we got closer to our wedding weekend, Em was on top of every last detail and ensured we finished everything when it need to be finished. I knew I never needed to worry about forgetting something. After a year and a half of planning came the wedding, and oh my gosh I was blown away. I didn't know I'd be able to relax and enjoy our weekend as much as I did, and I owe it all to Em. She had a to-the-minute timeline for the whole weekend, she was a resource for not only me and my husband, but our parents and entire wedding party, and she was on top of literally everything - from helping with my bustle, to being ready to fix my hair after our VERY windy pictures, to sewing a groomsman's pants after they split when he was having himself a good time on the dance floor - if you needed it, I swear she already knew. We will never be able to thank her enough for planning and coordinating a weekend that surpassed our wildest expectations.
