    Best Decision! Kind, Reliable & Detailed

    The first and best decision we made after getting engaged was hiring Emerald Events by Nilsa as our wedding planning team! As a couple who lives out of state, planning a wedding from afar is no easy feat but we were confident that Nilsa and her team were up to the task of working with our schedules to make our wedding day dreams come true. And they delivered! Shortly after we signed our agreement, Nilsa provided a detailed list of reputable wedding venues and vendors that fit our preferences and style. From there, she worked with us and our vendors to design an elegant wedding experience. On the few occasions we did visit the Richmond VA area, Nilsa was extremely accommodating by planning and participating in our in person vendor meetings. When Nilsa passed the ball to Shannon who would be our lead coordinator, we knew we were in great hands! She has a gentle spirit that will put any bride and groom at ease but she does not play when it comes to attention to detail and keeping your vendors in check.

    When 2020 rolled around and our plans were near finalized, we made the tough decision to postpone our wedding not once, but twice. We were saddened that we would have to delay our dream
    wedding. Nilsa and Shannon were there to comfort us and ensured us that everything would work out. Best of all, for both postponements, they reached out to all of our vendors to find a new date and get contracts updated. This was a huge weight lifted off of our shoulders. They truly went above and beyond what we could have ever imagined.

    Fast forward to the day of the wedding, the team(Shannon, Yaya,Kalisha, and Nilsa) all made sure that everyone was where they needed to be to ensure we stayed on schedule. They even coordinated Ubers to get us to and from the Capital building for our first look. The ceremony and reception spaces were set up beautifully and WOW’d our wedding guests. When the day was over, we didn’t have to worry about lifting a single finger and could just enjoy our time as husband and wife.

    It truly was the wedding of our dreams and it would not have been possible without Emerald Events!
