Can I get married again??
Emily was such a joy to work with. There is no way our wedding would have been the unforgettable day it was without her involvement. She is a total gem--fun, organized, thoughtful, kind, and totally on top of her game.Sent on 08/20/2019
She helps make your vision a reality: she always had ideas, and she was a valuable thought partner for me to bounce my own off of. All of the aesthetic decisions we made were so fun; I talked about the vibe of our wedding being "fancier backyard dinner party" and she pulled the details together in such a gorgeous way-- from the beautiful tables to the candlesticks (which she sourced and were AMAZING) to the font on our table cards, no piece was too small to give some thought to. And, whenever I got decision fatigue, or started second-guessing things, she was always there with some thoughtful ideas or advice on what we might do next. In the midst of all of this, she also helped us plan for and stay on budget, which was critical. If something was going to be cost prohibitive, or wasn't worth our time, she would let us know, and if I decided I needed to get a little more wiggle room in the budget in favor of something else, she helped us identify items that could come out.
On top of that, she is incredibly organized and helped us stay on track with planning through a combination of emails and her own tools/documents. She answered our questions quickly, kept us apprised of how things were going, and she was willing to jump on the phone for a quick call when needed. We always knew where we were and what we had left. We worked collaboratively to decide on vendors, but she sourced quite a few of them for us (a godsend! less research!) and her recommendations were so valuable, especially since we were planning a wedding in Maine and we live in Boston. We had the most wonderful team, and I'm not sure we would have found some of them if not for Emily.
The day of and leading up to it was smooth sailing, and we knew we were in good hands so we could actually relax a little bit. Everything went amazing. Emily worked with our team of vendors and had everything lined up and ready to go, and helped keep us on time too.
Really, I can't say enough good things about her and her work. She was a constant, warm presence in the midst of the planning process (even and especially on days I was freaking out a little bit) and on the day of it was so fun to have a moment to step back and take it all in with her. Emily, there's no way it would've happened without you. Thank you again!!

An Anniversary Party to Remember
Emily helped me plan a surprise destination 40th anniversary party for my parents. From beginning to end, Emily was easy to work with, extremely knowledgeable and always reliable. I wasn't able to be present for any decision making at all since I live in the midwest, and everything turned out perfectly. Emily's vision and hard work helped create a magical evening we'll never forget. Thank you, Emily!Sent on 08/05/2019

Long Distance Wedding Planning
Emily planned our daughter's Maine wedding and it was perfect. The bride and groom live in Southern California and we live in Pittsburgh, so we had to trust Emily with almost everything. Plus, Hannah and Tim wanted an outdoor wedding with a tent for dinner and barn for cocktails and dancing. We had two other daughters married in the past few years, so we understood the number of important decisions that needed to be made. EVERYTHING was exquisite!! The whole event was magical.Sent on 10/30/2018
