Everything done with Excellence

We've worked with the Emily Sullivan Events team many times and they always go above and beyond, communicates well with all the vendors, and never seems to amaze me at how no matter what's going on they're calm & collective and making our lives so much easier! One of our all time favorite companies to work with.

Amazing team

Where to even begin... Emily was recommended by our venue and due to us having a destination wedding, I had soooo many concerns and worries. However, during my initial consult with Emily she was so patient and went over all options from full service down to intimate weddings. Due to us already having found our venue& catering, we decided to do the intimate wedding services. OMG, if what we got was “intimate”. I can only imagine what the full service planning is. Emily and Olivia were super responsive and assuring throughout the entire process. Then COVID happened. Olivia was amazing, reassuring and understanding. Never once did I feel like having to postpone and it was mainly due to Olivia’s constant reassurance. She answered all my frantic late night emails and broke down every detail so I could feel comfortable with the budget. For the day off, Michelle was my “person”, she is the BOMB. between her, Olivia and Emily, I worried about nothing. It even rained on our wedding day and they had white umbrellas for all the guest! Literally the best part of my wedding planning process was working with this amazing team. This team is worth every dollar and then some! I see why Emily is the BEST of the BEST and has the best team.

Couldn't have asked for better service

My husband and I were married in New Orleans on 3/6/2020 and we hired Emily Sullivan as our day of coordinator based on all of the great ratings we had previously seen associated with her and her team. Needless to say, all of the great ratings were spot on. She and her team were on every detail!!! They made the day absolutely perfect. My guest actually raved about how seamless the pace of the wedding was and I attribute that solely to Emily and her team. I felt so taken care of in every way. It was even more amazing as we were planning the wedding from out of town. She handled everything better than I could've imagined and I can not say enough how wonderful it was to work with her. If you are trying to find a planner, all I can say is hire her!!! It was money well spent and with all of the stresses weddings can bring, working with her will be the least stressful decision that you make.
