Couldn't Ask For a Better Team!!!!

It is impossible to write a review that truly describes how amazing Emma and Rebecca are! From kindness, to professionalism, to talent, they are everything you could ask for and more in an event planner! Their creative vision and communication is unmatched. They took the vague design ideas I had and turned them into the most beautiful, once in lifetime engagement party! Leading up to the party, I had absolutely no concerns or stress because I knew everything was in their capable hands. They made themselves available at any time and no question was too big or too small. I couldn't have asked for a more special way to celebrate our engagement and it was all thanks to Emma and Rebecca.

Great Experience with Meriwether!

If you are looking to hire a wedding planner, stop looking and hire Meriwether. My wife and I had a wonderful experience with Emma and Rebecca guiding us through the process as we planned a large wedding from completely out of town without ever having to make a physical trip to Ann Arbor (where the wedding was) for just the purposes of the wedding.

We hired Meriwether after having already booked the venue, band, as well as a few other vendors so we only signed up for their partial planning option as we mainly needed their help organizing an itinerary, making sure that things ran smoothly the day of, and signing up a few vendors of less critical items. Despite not signing up for the full level of service, we never seemed to know the difference. They were always available to provide guidance and advice either via email or on a quick phone call and they were willing to jump in and negotiate and work with vendors who were slower to respond. All of this was in addition to the regular touchpoints we had and the general reminders to make sure that we were following our planning schedule which they provided.

Beginning ~2 months out from the wedding itself, Meriwether became even more involved as they organized a detailed schedule complete with addresses, names, and phone numbers making sure that everyone was where they needed to be on the day of the wedding. As a very detailed-oriented person it was incredibly helpful knowing that we had a planner more organized than we were.

On the day of the wedding, Meriwether and their team were extremely helpful shepherding us through the day from getting ready, to photos, to the ceremony and then the reception. They were at the country club the whole day making sure that the tent for our ceremony and the ballroom for the reception were completely set up. There was not a single hiccup or slight detail that my wife and I would have changed.

As we were preparing for our wedding, people would tell us ‘just relax, something will inevitably go wrong but don’t let it bother you, the day will be wonderful’. Well the day was wonderful, but nothing went wrong thanks to Meriwether. It was truly an incredible experience in no small part due to their effort!

Greatest Wedding Planners

Emma & Rebecca are THE BEST. We hired them for full-service planning, and they went above and beyond to create what can only be described as our perfect wedding.

A mother/daughter team of superheroes, Emma & Rebecca killed it at every stage from conception to day-of coordination. They are professional, empathetic, flexible, observant, and experienced – all at a reasonable price. Here are few out of our numerous experiences that best personify this…

• Up front, we spoke to them about our vision, sharing our constraints, desires, and pinterest boards to come up with a conception of what we wanted. E&R dreamed up a wedding for us that matched exactly our vision with enthusiasm.

• E&R then replanned the entire wedding in 5 months. Originally planned for June in Detroit, we found out the father-of-the-grooms’ cancer meant he could only attend a wedding in February. Without question, they pivoted to a February wedding in Charleston, advising the need for a warmer climate to support an outdoor COVID wedding. All without significant incremental costs to our bill.

• Despite not having destination experience in Charleston, E&R quickly built a vendor dream-team. They managed the diverse group through respectful dialogue, industry experience, and meticulous organization. Several vendors shared compliments about E&R directly to us.

• Beyond the event details, E&R were emotional support. Always a text or email away, they were happy to answer questions, take on a minor task, or be a shoulder to cry on. They perfectly metered information to us; we felt involved in the decisions that mattered but not overwhelmed.

• E&R were day-of bulldogs. They kept us on time, kept guests in line, and read the room. When speeches were starting to run over, Emma realized it and helped make game-time edits so guests stayed engaged & happy. Additionally, when the DJ needed to create a 30 second pause in music before the speeches started because of the placement of the booth, Emma stepped into the booth to adjust sound levels so audio transition was flawless. They knew how to create a superior experience.

We are so thankful we went with Emma & Rebecca. We can’t recommend them enough to other couples.
