Simply the best!

We were grateful to have found Emerald Engagements to be our wedding coordinator and Carly for design services! We opted for the partial planning package because we had some things under control, but I am so grateful that Carly and Grace were on our team to help guide us through all the other things! Carly helped us find our Floral, Rental, Hair and Makeup, and DJ vendors, all of whom were incredible! Carly and her team were impressively fast on responding to all our emails and questions and overall provided us with exceptional tools, resources, and advice to plan our wedding, which was especially helpful as we were not local. Her online planning portal helped us track our budget, timeline, and to-do list all in one location. We are grateful for the video calls we had with Carly and Grace, as they were effective to get to know one another and focus on open tasks and upcoming milestones or decisions. We felt that the travel fees for our venue (2 hours outside of Seattle) were reasonable and Grace was incredible as our day-of coordinator. There was never a moment on the day-of of the wedding that I was worried about things because I knew they were in good hands and in a well throughout and prepared plan and timeline. Thank you to Carly and team for helping our celebration become a reality!

Carly and Emerald Engagements are fantastic!

When my fiancée and I started planning our wedding, I knew having a wedding planner was my top priority, so I spent a ton of time trying to find the best. I went through, Yelp, The Knot, Wedding Wire and just about every list I could. I compiled a list of all of the planners and ranked them by rating/recommendation. Then I went to their websites for pricing information and ranked them again by price and rating. I spent days sifting through all of these planners. Then I sent emails to 5 of them asking for information/to set up a call. I chose the 3 that responded the fastest and my fiancée (now wife) and I set up a time to talk with them. Carly at Emerald Engagements was on the short list and the fastest to reply. Carly worked with us to understand what services we actually needed/wanted and actually made us feel at ease getting a different, less hands on, package than we thought we needed. Right from the start Carly was looking out for us and that is a trend that carried through the entire time we worked with her. Anytime we sent her an email we got a reply quickly (weekends she would sometimes reply, but always by first thing Monday which is perfectly acceptable). We don't have a great eye for design, but we had a vision, and Carly really helped my wife bring what she wanted to life. When it came to picking vendors Carly went out and found us options based on my wife's Pinterest board. Sometimes my wife didn't like any of the options, would give feedback on why, and then Carly would suggest new ones. We ended up with the best vendors thanks to Carly. Though a superstar throughout the entire planning process, her skills really shined the final weeks before the wedding when all of the details were coming together. One week before our wedding, we decided, based on seating groups, we really needed an additional dinner table and she immediately jumped on the task. Within a day she sent us quotes and helped get our order adjusted right away. On the day of the wedding I arrived around 11am with my groomsmen and everything was in full swing. Carly and one of her employees were there and again, everything was taken care of and we didn't have anything to worry about. Carly had created a detailed timeline and wrangled all of the vendors. She just told us what was next on the timeline and where we needed to be! Throughout the day itself she was running the show and it all went flawlessly. While we were being bombarded with pictures and distractions Carly was constantly checking in on us and asking if we needed anything. On the day of the wedding you can't go anywhere or do anything without being mobbed or pulled away by someone and Carly is the only reason I had anything to eat or drink the whole time. She was constantly checking in on us and she really made the day go smoothly and enjoyable. A wedding planner is a significant investment, but knowing what I know now, it was worth every penny. Carly was a professional the entire time and it was an absolute pleasure to get to know her.

Carly was the best!

Carly was absolutely amazing. Hire her! Seriously, you won't regret it. We made a spreadsheet comparing 12 different wedding planners in the Seattle area, interviewed 3 of them, and Carly won in all categories. She was sharp, knew the wedding business, and had all the contacts to be able to get us amazing vendors for our wedding. She *made* our wedding weekend! She coordinated our Friday Welcome Party, Saturday Wedding, and Sunday Fun Day event. She thought of questions to ask vendors that I would have never dreamed to ask. Just one of many examples: the venue for Friday night told us that the cups they used were plastic. OK right? NO. Carly asked for a picture and they were absolutely hideous. We were able to order nicer cups in time for the event. Throughout the entire planning process, Carly was steps ahead, anticipating questions and resolving things before I even needed to ask. I am so glad we hired Carly and I will highly recommend her to anyone that asks.
