Excellent Event Planner
I am a wedding photographer and recently I had the pleasure of working a local wedding along side Emily and her team. I don't often write reviews but I was compelled to do so, as its well deserved. Throughout the planning process she was on top of all of the details, kept great communication with all the vendors, and on the day of was wonderful to work with =)Sent on 05/23/2019

She also is highly respected by venues and other vendors for her timelines and fantastic communication. Our big day was absolutely beautiful and perfect because of Emily and I would recommend her over and over again.

Amazing wedding planner!
Emily truly made the last nine months of my life enjoyable even though we were planning a wedding. I never thought I would ever find someone as on it as I like to be but Emily takes the cake.Sent on 09/22/2019
As soon as we sat down with her we knew she’d do right by us - and she delivered.
We had a somewhat complex day Saturday with two ceremonies and not once did I have to worry about a ball being dropped.
I have been to other weddings where the bride and groom are still stressing over things that have to happen - my husband and I had a relaxed week before and through the entire wknd because Emily handled everything. We got to enjoy so much time together and with friends and family because she handled everything. Do not hesitate to book her - you will be making the right choice!
Thank you so much Emily for an amazing wedding day - it was beyond anything we could have imagined.
