    Excellent! Beautiful Work!!

    Amazing!!! We used Occasions by Emily for our wedding in October and they did such a wonderful job! I did not find them in my initial search and my original plan for floral fell through. I reached out to them later than I would've hoped but they were so helpful and nice! I gave them a little background about us as a couple and our vision and they returned with a proposal (under budget) that literally blew me away! Michelle is the person who I worked with and she was literally fantastic!! Not only did she get my vision down pat, she also suggested things that I hadn't thought about. When we saw the finished product we were over the moon! Everything looked exactly how we imagined it and we could tell she put a lot of thought into all of the details. I would highly recommend Occasions by Emily, their quality, value and customer service were simply top notch!!!

    Beautiful decor and helped guide through the whole process

    WOW! Michelle and team did a fantastic job!!! She was amazing and so easy to work with and really guided me throughout the whole process, I only had some ideas of what I wanted and she helped me see those through and made our whole reception GORGEOUS and the ceremony pieces were so beautiful!!! Not on that, she worked with my MIL the night before to do the rehearsal dinner space and it was so lovely. They provide a great service for a good price and are fantastic to work with!!! I would highly recommend.

    The BEST planning and floral design!!!

    First, Michelle is an excellent wedding coordinator. She did 30 day planning and day-of coordination for us, and she really helped ease my mind so much. I was having a lot of anxiety in the months leading up to our wedding because of COVID, and she got on the phone with me and instantly made me feel better. She had that same calming presence during our wedding, even though my venue was a little bit of a mess. And my family also commented on how comfortable she made them -- and I'm telling you that's really impressive since we were all over the place with emotions and issues. Genuinely I'm so glad that Michelle was there!!

    And I absolutely LOVED my flowers!! I decided I wanted to have lots of color just a month or so before the wedding, and Michelle really made it happen! I was pretty vague but she got it exactly right! I LOVED my bouquet and the decorations during the ceremony. She really exceeded my expectations!
