MASTER of wedding planning!
My now husband and I were about 5 months from our big day when I realized how overwhelming I was starting to feel with planning, coordinating, and, in general, making final decisions. From the first moment I reached out to Emmett, I knew we were in trusted, professional hands. Even my husband, who is pretty laid back and wasn’t sure that we really “needed” a planner, quickly realized how Emmett would significantly improve our big day by being the “go-to” person for ALL logistics (read: my husband was ecstatic to realize he didn’t have to coordinate with our transportation and deliveries on our actual wedding day…). Emmett was able to provide us with recommendations that we never would have considered on our own; from the lighting to the table overlays, his suggestions made the wedding that much more perfect. Throughout the ceremony and reception, Emmett and his team were always accessible. Whether it was a silly question about finding a college flag for a photo op, or needing to find specific guests for photos, Emmett and his team were consistently on top of everything (my husband and I were also very much impressed by their use of Bluetooth ear pieces to keep everyone coordinated and communicating! – felt like we had our own private secret service!).
Bottom line: we could not have survived our wedding (or planning it!) without Emmett. My husband and I consider Emmett be the ultimate wedding consultant, and as a bonus we feel that we’ve gained a great friend!

Emmett is absolutely outstanding and worth every penny! He made my wedding day and the weeks leading up to it so much less stressful. I didn't have to worry about any details the day of as he took care of everything behind the scenes. I live out of town and have a very demanding day job, so my ability to plan my wedding in Richmond was a bit limited. Emmett was so helpful in answering my questions, coordinating with vendors, and dealing with small details that I wouldn't have even considered. He is an expert on local venues and vendors, and he works with you on your vision for the day while offering really helpful suggestions. I can't recommend him enough!

When I discovered that the "wedding planner" my venue had promised was merely just a day-of coordinator, we reached out to Richmond Bridal Consulting. I'm so glad that we did! Emmett was a wealth of knowledge on everything wedding-related. He was always available when I had questions, and recommended great vendors for our day. In the rare moments that we had issues with said vendors, Emmett was the one who interceded to make sure our day went off as planned. On the actual day of our wedding, I could relax and enjoy the day knowing that everything was taken care of. I would definitely recommend them, and Emmett specifically, for your big day. He really did a phenomenal job!
Emmett is amazing to work with! He's kind, has a great reputation in the wedding industry, and is on top of everything. His events are always well run and GORGEOUS! Don't hesitate for a second to hire Richmond Bridal Consulting!
I've know Emmett for years. Professional, drama-free, logistical skills that the military envies, frank and sincere. His no nonsense and classy approach to consulting and coordinating make him the go to pick! Give him a call!
Emmett is a creative, dynamic wedding planner who consistently goes above and beyond what would be expected. You cannot go wrong in hiring him to plan, or keep you on track for your wedding day!
