Booking wedding planning services with Emmy from EWhitney events was by far one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Our guests are still raving about our wedding, and we still can't believe that it all worked out exactly the way we had planned.Sent on 08/11/2015
Emmy was very professional and easy to work with. Through out the whole process she kept us on task and checked in on all of the details. She helped us to find the right vendors and handled all of the communications, which was so helpful. Emmy was very flexible and always there when we needed to discuss ideas or make decisions.
On the weeks and days leading up to the wedding, Emmy was our lifesaver. Especially on the day of the wedding, I really cannot say enough about everything that she did. The wedding day itself was EXACTLY as I hoped it would be. My goal in hiring a planner was to not have to worry about anything during my wedding day- I didn't want to answer any questions, remind anyone about the timeline, or try to deal with any issues. I just wanted to get married and have a blast with my family and friends. Emmy made this a reality. Each part of the day unfolded as we had planned, since Emmy was working constantly behind the scenes to make it happen. I actually didn't even have to speak with Emmy much on the day of the wedding, because we had so many conversations beforehand, that I was shocked that we didn't need to recap on the day of. This was such a relief, because I was able to focus on other things instead of wrapping up details.
I would highly recommend that you use EWhitney events for any event that you are planning!!

Emmy was absolutely essential and wonderful for coordinating our wedding. She reached out to all out vendors the week before the wedding and took all communication out of my hands, which was much appreciated during the hectic week of the wedding. In the months leading up to the wedding, she helped build a detailed timeline for all parties involved, and distributed that timeline to all vendors. Most importantly, on the day of she could not have been more helpful. There were definitely a few things that went wrong with our vendors, and Emmy handled them swiftly and so that I never knew there was an issue. She is creative, resourceful, and excellent at dealing with a variety of personality types both with guests and vendors! I would 100% recommend her to someone else, if they want their wedding to go as smoothly as possible, and work with such a pleasant, great person at the same time!!Sent on 11/17/2014

I used EWhitney Events for my recent wedding and found the services outstanding! They were willing to work within my budget, highly professional, and managed all the day-of logistics including decorating, coordinating with other vendors, and ensuring that every part of the event went seamlessly. The personalized attention throughout the planning process was excellent, and during the event it was such a relief to trust that everything was under control so I could enjoy time with guests and not worry about a thing- it was the best investment! I highly recommend EWhitney Events!Sent on 10/28/2013

I don't know what we would have done without Emmy. We were trying to plan our wedding long distance and it was proving to be very frustrating. She stepped in and helped us with everything from finding and finalizing vendors to making sure the day itself went smoothly. She was very organized, knowledgeable, and understood exactly what we envisioned for our wedding day. She has excellent taste and attention to detail. If you don't think you need a wedding planner I would strongly urge you to reconsider. I think she saved us a lot of time and aggravation. I really don't know what we would have done without her. All of our friends and family loved her and the folks from our venue and caterer had nothing but good things to say about her. Our wedding was exactly what we wanted and the day could not have gone better. Thank you for everything Emmy!Sent on 08/21/2015

Emmy is quite simply the most lovely, organized, patient and thorough wedding planner. We used Emmy for her Same-Day wedding planning services, but Emmy was so much more than just a same day planner. Soon after we got engaged, Emmy made the hour drive to come down to our venue site to check things out. Within a weeks time, she had turned around an initial timeline of the weekend. Our ceremony was in the backyard of my parents house, and though this may seem like a simple enough idea, Emmy quickly took control and helped us navigate the less glamorous side of making it actually happen.Sent on 08/31/2013
Throughout the year long planning process, I rarely made a decision before running it by Emmy. Leading up to the wedding day, Emmy checked in with all of our vendors, confirming arrival times, equipment needs, whether or not they needed a meal, etc. Again, I was just blown away by her attention to detail and willingness to go the extra mile (without charging you for every minute that you talk with her on the phone.) There were so many times throughout the year long wedding process that my Mom and I turned to each other and said, "Thank god for Emmy!" On the day before the wedding, our minister was late to the wedding rehearsal, so Emmy stepped right up and ran the entire wedding rehearsal herself (with a calm disposition and a smile.) Then, on the evening before the wedding, we couldn't figure out how to fold the origami sail boats that we were using for place cards. Emmy reassured us that we need not worry, and she actually went to Michaels, found a solution, and made the place card table look far better than I ever could have imagined. Our guests were blown away. By far, the best part about having Emmy was knowing that she knew our wedding so well, inside and out. And so, on our wedding day, we are all able to relax and thoroughly enjoy the day knowing that the logistics were in great hands. Emmy, we cannot thank you enough for making the wedding of our dreams come to life!

Emmy of EWhitney Events is amazing! We would highly recommend EWhitney Events to any couple looking for a wedding planner. Emmy did our day of coordination for the wedding day. She did an excellent job with keeping everything on schedule/creating the schedule. She called and confirmed all of my vendors two weeks before the wedding, which was a huge task that we didn’t need to worry about. The morning of my wedding there were a couple of things that needed to be changed around, I called Emmy and she took care of everything! She is extremely organized, professional, and a true joy to work with. She has a calming presence that every bride would appreciate on her wedding day. We would highly recommend Emmy & EWhitney Events!Sent on 02/25/2012

Emmy is wonderful to work with! She kept us on track and made sure we did not overlook any details. Through the entire process, we knew that we could reach out to her with questions and that she would quickly and thoroughly respond. Over the wedding weekend, we all felt confident that things would run smoothly and that Emmy would be there to facilitate any last minute changes and needs (without worrying us). We were thrilled with how the wedding turned out and strongly encourage you to work with Emmy as well!Sent on 09/19/2016
