Love the EY team!

Where do I begin? Crystal and I first connected in December of 2021. I was so nervous in beginning the wedding planning process and knew I needed someone who was going to help me in CA while I lived out in Ohio. During our initial call, she made me feel so comfortable and confident that she would be the best professional to get the job done!

We've basically been in constant contact for the past two years. My now husband and I booked her and her team for full service planning. As a Type A bride, and someone who is incredibly picky, I'm so glad that I had Crystal by my side! Crystal did an amazing job in helping us find and narrow down / contact vendors (venue, photographers, our live musician, florals, dj/mc, linens, etc.. literally everything!), attend meetings, keep track of our budget, think about all of the things we never knew were important for weddings (like insurance lol), and she did an excellent job as my acting therapist for the immense stress from cross country wedding planning. She did way more than that, but it's hard to remember everything over our long wedding planning process!!

A lot of people mention how calming Crystal's demeanor is during this whole process. If she's ever stressed, you literally cannot tell. Just being able to chat with her or text her was so helpful and comforting! If there was ever a problem, she fixed it, or proposed solutions that would fix it.

Our actual wedding day went perfectly. She and her team did a wonderful job coordinating the event (all 180+ guests) and handling all things if they came up (idk if anything did, because she was on it the entire time). We received so many raving comments from our bridal party and guests who complimented how well run our event was!!

We also utilized Crystal's dance lessons - SO helpful for our first dance! She's a great teacher and was able to teach us plenty of fun choreography, despite our two left feet.

Lastly, we booked her team for their Photo Booth services. The Photo Booth was a hit all night, the prop table was always well organized, the photos came out with perfectly clear quality, and the photos were quick to print! We loved how we could customize our photo booth print outs during the planning process.

Overall, I highly, highly recommend Crystal and her team for all of your planning needs. She's truly a professional in the industry and knows what she's doing! Thank you so much Crystal and the Exceptionally Yours team for all of your assistance in the past two years! I'll miss talking to you on the daily lol.

Brought our wedding vision to life!

Crystal and her team were so helpful during the whole wedding planning process. We immediately trusted her from the start. We booked her for day of coordination, but she still checked in on us in the months leading up. She had helpful wedding planning sheets that we were able to use that kept us organized. She was available whenever we had questions and always answered them promptly. Crystal and her team brought our wedding vision to life and everything was perfect. We felt so taken care of the whole day and we couldn’t have asked for a better team.

Great Coordination!

I loved working with Crystal, we used her day of services, but she helped me stay organized and did a bunch of work before the big day! She had a great team that created a thorough schedule to keep the group organized, and we were even ahead of schedule a few times in the night! I also really enjoyed her online tools to help me plan as well.
