I wanted to thank you for facilitating an amazing wedding weekend! As Kate must have told you, I had misgivings about the venue and all the moving parts needed to coordinate an event from such a raw space. Having done quite a few large events for non-profits I knew the amount of planning, work, coordination and vision it would take. That being said, you complemented my daughter’s vision of her wedding so beautifully and successfully executed a remarkable event. From your choice of vendors for food, lighting, flowers and hard and soft goods – you were spot on! I witnessed a soft-spoken but firm professional manner in your dealing with issues that arose and was very impressed. You have a gift for making things look easy and calm, a skill much needed and appreciated during the planning and implementation of the wedding. If things went wrong during the wedding, we were not aware and neither were our guests – thank you! Thank you for working alongside my daughter to give her a truly memorable wedding and her parents memories we will cherish forever.

I immediately identified with her style; a charming, elegant, purist eye for details and an incredible ability to create a fluid motif throughout an event. She laid out a timeline and kept me on track, organized a running ledger based on my budget, and would help me select vendors from the area. I cannot stress enough how amazingly organized she is and how much of a blessing that is while you are planning a wedding! She built me an A-team for my photographer, caterer, hair and makeup designer, rentals, and florist. Her end-product was stunning.
The day before my event, she was with me all day, helping to organize items/rentals and running through the next day’s schedule with the whole family. The day of, she was there bright and early setting up the ceremony and attending individually to each loose-end, making sure nothing was overlooked. During the wedding day, I kept hearing over and over that my wedding was the most beautiful and most unique wedding any of my guests had ever attended.

We didn’t start out looking for a wedding planner – the thought seemed odd to us when we even suggested to each other that we’d get one. Now we truly understand the value of having a wedding planner having worked with Emily, and we can honestly say that without her, we would never have been able to have the kind of wedding we did. She helped us transform a collection of ideas into a vision for our day that we’d probably never have come up with ourselves and thanks to the great relationships she’s created with other vendors, orchestrated an amazing occasion that was personal, thoughtful and stylish. From the outset Emily was really responsive, and took care to get our input on every small detail, without overwhelming us, and kept us on track with everything we needed to do, at the right time. She is great at listening to your ideas and thoughts, but is also never afraid to give you an honest opinion in her calm, gracious way. If you’re planning on getting married in Maine, then you really can’t do any better than Emily.
