    Excellent planner! Had a wonderful low stress planning process and wedding because of Emily!

    I can't speak highly enough about Emily and her skills as a wedding planner! Hiring her was one of the best decisions we made. We got engaged and were married 6 months to the day afterwards and had a wedding for ~100 people. Within that 6 months we bought a house, both moved and had several other life events happen. Needless to say it was stressful but honestly I rarely had wedding stress. I was ridiculously happy planning it and I credit most of that to Emily. After the initial meeting she helped us nail down our vision and then she would give me 2 - 3 options for vendors that matched our style and were within our budget. It saved us so much time combing the internet and worrying about the caliber of those we were hiring. I know she had many meetings with vendors and the venue without me even knowing which is exactly what I wanted!
    The actual wedding day was perfect! Everything (went off perfectly despite weather moving us inside and if there was a hiccup she and her assistant took care of it without me knowing.
    She is personable but also no non-sense which fit well with my personality.
    I never worried about missing a detail, not meeting a timeline, or anything on the wedding day. I highly recommend Emily to help plan your wedding!

    Emily Made Our Wedding Perfect

    It’s really hard to put into words how helpful and wonderful Emily was as our wedding planner. We hired on Emily as a full-service planner almost two years before the actual day of our wedding, and to say we couldn’t have done it without her is a huge understatement. Emily is careful, thoughtful, kind, (extremely) patient, and her attention to detail is remarkable. We live in NYC but wanted to have our wedding in Durham, and we knew we’d need full-service help. But even if you’re local, you should seriously consider Emily for full-service wedding planning. She navigated vendors, kept us on track in terms of budget and timeline, and really understands the joys (and stresses) of planning a wedding. Our 110 person wedding, held at the lovely Cookery in downtown Durham, was given life via her guidance. It was completely "us," elegantly designed, and had the perfect flow from moment to moment. She kept us on track, kept us from getting overwhelmed, and helped us navigate every situation that came up during the planning phase. She immediately got our vibe, understood what we wanted for our day, and worked tirelessly with all of our (equally wonderful) vendors to make it beyond perfect. Bringing her on board was the best decision we made for our wedding, and we couldn’t imagine anyone else helping us have the perfect day. Thanks, Emily, for everything!
