Great person with great leading skills

Erin was amazing serving as our event planner and coordinator, helping us at every step of the way.

We originally decided to work with Erin because she was very responsive, she was friendly in our introduction meeting, yet she managed to keep us on track. Striking a great balance between those three was very appreciated during every step of the process.

We were planning our wedding remotely, so our opportunities to see venues and meet with vendors was limited. Erin contacted and set up many of these appointments for us and arranged for a very effective weekend. She accompanied us during the visits, and quickly set up additional appointments once she learned what we liked and disliked, until we finally found the perfect spot. The entire time, she was balancing our preferences and vision of the venue with our ideal budget - never pressuring us against either.

Erin continued to keep us on task, informing us of recommended timelines, sending reminders, and always being willing to talk when we had too many questions for our regular emails. When we did need to communicate with vendors, she was always willing to join the conversation and advocate for us or share her perspective.

Whenever we had an idea in mind, she would work to make it a reality. She wasn't affraid to share that a certain idea end up bad, but she always would present several ways to modify it slightly in a way that would fit a bit better. She was open to fun and quirky ideas, but was also happy with more traditional ideas. She was open and communicative in a way that made us feel very comfortable being open with her. For example, when we received a sample for the centerpieces, she made us feel comfortable saying that we didn't like them and we all were very comfortable making a different selection for the centerpieces.

As the wedding approached, the emails, phone calls, and check-ins became more frequent, ensuring all final details were in place and ready to go. She made extra effort to help pick up items, deliver them to the venue, set up the tables, and design so many beautiful decorations that I didn't have nearly enough time to fully appreciate (but our guests did!). On the actual day of the wedding, everything went so smoothly, I had no concerns at all and was able to fully enjoy the day. I did notice a couple times Erin running around and ensuring things were happening flawlessly behind the scenes, and sure enough, everything was perfect. Thank you Erin!

We didn鈥檛 have to worry about anything. We will hire her again ! She was very attentive to our needs and made sure that our vision was achieved. Thank you Erin and your team for all your hard work it was beautiful.

Exceptional Service!

Erin was so incredibly helpful and professional. My fiance and I were trying to put together a very small gathering to exchange our vows with a very small budget. Erin had several wedding packages to choose from but I felt they were more than I needed. Even though I ended up deciding to pull the event together on my own, Erin went over and above to help me find an affordable venue. She is very easy to talk to and by looking at all of the photos of the events she's planned, it's obvious to me that she is exceptionally talented and will come highly recommended by me to anyone I know needing an event planner! Thank you Erin!!!
