Encouraging, calm & collected, confident, reliable and understanding are just some of the words that come to my mind in describing Erica Thimsen. I cannot express my gratitude and appreciation enough. My daughter's wedding was amazing and more beautiful, than I could ever have imagined. One could never imagined all the work that it takes to plan a successful wedding. Erica put everyone at ease during such a stressful time with her kind and gentle spirit, not to mention a lot of patience. As a wedding planner, she is very professional and detail orientated, an admirable quality. Erica is very knowledgeable in her field of expertise and she makes everything look so easy.
My daughters wedding will always be such a memorable event because it was perfect! Seeing how happy and joyous she was on her special day was all that we as parents could ever hope for. I recommend Erica to anyone who is looking for a wedding planner and even if they don't think they need one, hire her anyway. You'll not be disappointed.
Erica may God bless you always. You are a genuine treasure and such a joy to work with. Thank you so much for being such a caring person.

Wonderful experience with Helping Hands!
I worked with Lynn from Helping Hands for my wedding and had a wonderful experience! Lynn is very calm under the chaos of wedding planning, which is a nice contrast to my somewhat all over the place personality. She went out of her way to help above and beyond whenever possible. She picked up and brought my wedding cake to the venue to avoid delivery fees and drove over an hour back to the venue to get my wedding dress preserved the next day. In addition to these minor details, Lynn took charge of every last detail I envisioned to make sure my dream day came to reality! Due to her planning and expertise, my wedding day went off without any complications and was perfect in every way.

Erica and her team handled our daughter's Oct. wedding and we couldn't have asked for anyone better. Erica was nothing short of great and her team was made up of kind, patient, and tireless people. We can't thank them enough; hiring this planner was our best decision. It was just an awesome event and made my daughter beyond happy...which is everything to me.Sent on 11/16/2018

We have worked with Erica a lot through the last few years and it is always a pleasure!! I know if our client has hired Erica the day we arrive for an event we have nothing to worry about and our event together is going to be flawless! Erica is always on top of things, VERY ORGANIZED (as to which a coordinator should be) and VERY PROFESSIONAL.
Erica and her staff are a delight to work with and very professional. Always a joy to do an event together. Highly recommend her service.
As an event coordinator, Erica is creative, organized, patient and composed. What more can you ask for?
