Book Soiree NOW to have a stress free day!!
Like many brides, while starting to plan our wedding I was not planning to hire any event coordinator at the start of wedding planning. However, about 7 months out from our big day I realized if we did not have professionals to help us, that there would likely be extra stress on my mom and myself the day of our wedding. I met with Soiree about 6 months from our wedding date and booked them immediately; and the Soiree team is worth EVERY PENNY! I wish I would have met with them earlier! We worked with Emily, Caitlyn and Haley and they are all amazing! We did the essentials package - we were able to meet with the team twice before the wedding and they pointed out many details that we had not thought about as well as helped us with our day of timeline. They also checked up on us throughout the months leading up to the wedding to see if we had any questions; communication was great! Caitlyn and Haley were with us all day on our wedding day and I seriously can't imagine our day going so smoothly without their help/expertise. From keeping the bridal party on time, setting up table decor, assisting the photographer, serving the head table drinks during dinner, this list goes on and on! Plus, they are so fun to work with and bring a calming presence to the day. I was actually able to enjoy our wedding day since I knew the Soiree team was taking care of all the behind the scenes details and making sure everything was going as planned. Highly recommend Soiree to anyone is search of an event planner!Sent on 08/02/2020

Emily, the Wedding planner you NEED
I highly recommend Emily and her team at Soiree. When I was a little girl, I never pictured my wedding, I always pictured the perfect person to marry. So needless to say when I did find my other half, my person, (which up until that point I thought I was going to be a crazy dog lady since I am horribly allergic to cats), I needed some serious help. Due to certain circumstances my parents could not help me plan my wedding. I knew I wanted a wedding both of our families would love, that was well done, and also mixed two different cultures (I am from a very small town in Iowa and my husband is a first generation Mexican born and raised in Southern California/ LA.) I needed help. I couldn’t even pick out colors for my wedding without feeling incredibly overwhelmed. There are wedding traditions in Mexico my husband’s family wanted to incorporate. I did not have the slightest idea of how to go about buying these things let alone how to get the Catholic Church in this area to ok the use of them during the wedding mass. Thank God I found Emily. Not only is she one of the most talented, organized, and professional people I have ever met, she is also one of the most patient and kind. She broke things down to do for the wedding so simply and easily over the year of planning I had no worries. There are things with planning a wedding that I honestly never thought of let alone how to handle them all! Emily allowed me to enjoy my entire wedding week! She had a timeline for everything, and it made everything SO MUCH LESS STRESSFUL. Throughout the wedding process there were major, life changing events that happened. My father had a stroke, COVID turned our world upside down decreasing the size of my wedding by roughly 73%. (Just because I am crazy enough to continue with wedding planning and getting married during COVID doesn’t mean I except others to be as crazy as me). Most of my husbands extended family live in Mexico and due to the travel band could not come. I had people that played major roles in our wedding that due to COVID, could not attend. I also am in the high-risk group of dying from COVID due to some other health issues so additional safety precautions had to be taken. (Social distancing tables at the reception, wearing masks during the wedding ceremony, social distancing and wearing masks during the wedding mass, cleaning a crazy amount all the time, ect). I also have other serious health issues that threaten my life on a daily bias that require the help of my service dog (and fill in bridesmaid) Logan. Emily started dealing with a bilingual, bicultural wedding with a bride that can literally die from food allergies at any wrongly prepared meal, to that same wedding challenges on top of the storm that is COVID 19. Emily was a God sent! She made the impossible possible. I thought with COVID there was no way I could have a beautiful, classy, wedding. However, she made it happen. I literally had no stress the day of my wedding due to Emily. My husband and I were able to be in a happy wedding bliss fog the entire day. Emily handled everything with the venders, setting up the venue, taking down the venue, finding INCREDIBLE VENDORS to do my wedding all within my wedding budget. I could not be happier or recommend a better person to plan anyone’s big life events. Her connections to businesses that really know what they are doing in invaluable. You cannot go wrong with Emily’s expertise and recommendations. I highly encourage anyone planning any event to contact Emily. With her, know your event will be a memory you will treasure and will actually be able to enjoy.Sent on 08/13/2020
