Heather at Port City Event Planners was awesome! I could only meet with her once in person before the wedding since we are from out of town, but she was still able to see my vision for my wedding and create it so that it was beyond my expectations. She was very detail oriented and thought of absolutely everything. Also, she used Pinterest so that I could post pictures of ideas I liked for the wedding and she could see what I wanted, which was really cool. I would definitely recommend Port City Event Planners to anyone looking for help planning or decorating their wedding!

The BEST you could ever ask for

The absolute BEST wedding planner!!!! We HIGHLY recommend Heather and her team! Heather came recommended after our first wedding planning didn't work out. Though we were 6 months from the wedding reception and behind on some coordination when we switched to Port City Events, Heather jumped right in and quickly began coordinating with multiple vendors. Communication with my daughter and I was constant-we were kept informed every step of the process. Heather was so patient with the multitude of out of the ordinary requests and changes we asked of her. She made us feel that we were her only and most important client...even though we know she was juggling many events at once she never made us feel that way. Her creativity and guidance helped us create a magical day with NO hiccups or conflicts. Heather transformed Wrightsville Manor into something we collaborated on but was more spectacular than we could have imagined. On the day of the reception, Heather and her team ran the hours of preparation with military precision. Dozens of vendors were expertly coordinated with the result of being both inside and outside of Wrightsville Manor looking spectacular! The reception was PERFECT in every way. Our guests had a wonderful time but most importantly our daugther and her husband could not have been happier. Again, no need to consider any other event planner-it gets NO better than Heather at Port City Event Planners!

5 stars! Book heather!

Heather Healy with Port City Event Planners made my wedding an absolute fairytale! She literally made all my dreams come true! Everyone told me the #1 most important thing to spend your money on for your wedding is a planner. I never thought I would need one, but I can honestly say that I 100% recommend it! It is worth every penny! I had met with a few wedding planners in town but I knew when I met Heather she was the RIGHT wedding planner for me! Heather is so down to earth, knowledgeable, decisive, detailed and even has amazing connections with all the wedding vendors in town, which I think says a lot about her character! She was quick to answer all my questions via emails, phone calls and many texts. She was my go to person throughout the entire process! She even had this cool Planning Pod that kept us both in the loop regarding the guest count, contracts, vendors, timelines and the seating chart. As Heather knows, I am very particular about EVERYTHING (lol) and she worked with me to make sure every aspect of our wedding was exactly what we wanted! Heather went over and beyond for us! Most importantly she worked within our budget and for that I am so grateful! I didn’t know what to expect on the day of the wedding and I will tell you it was seamless. There was not even a hiccup! Its hard for me to have confidence in someone, but with Heather she makes it easy! A month later, and my wedding guests are still raving about my wedding! Look no further, book Heather Healy as your wedding planner and I know she will make your wedding day just as magical!
