Best decision! We hired Erin for our September wedding after learning it was her first wedding coordinating on her own and she knocked it out of the park. Erin was very communicative with us and our vendors raved about her, as well. She showed up on the day of our wedding and flawlessly set up all of our somewhat complicated centerpieces and other decorative items. Throughout the day, she ran the show behind the scenes and ensured we transitioned from ceremony to cocktail hour and to our reception and after party! My husband and I had such a blast the entire day and Erin played a huge part in that!


Dear Erin,

We can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done to make this day so special. [Our daughter] thinks the world of you and has said that she couldn’t have coordinated everything herself. Everything went perfectly thanks to you!

From start to finish our experience with Erin was flawless. Any questions or ideas I had leading up to our wedding weekend Erin was always there to help. She created our timeline and wrapped up final details with all of our vendors. Once the weekend came I felt no stress because I knew she was alongside me taking care of everything! Everyone should do themselves a favor and have Erin be a part of their big day.

Erin is the absolute best! We cannot recommend her enough!

To start she made us feel super comfortable right from the very start and while we had hired her for the month of coordinator she was immediately, 6 months in advance, making sure that we were staying on track and helping us with helpful tips, tools and tricks to keep us on track.
She worked with us even as she was getting married herself and was celebrating her own wedding, she was still checkingin on us to make sure we had everything we needed and were in order.

The month leading up to the wedding my wife and I kept looking at each other asking if we should be more stressed about stuff but couldn’t find anything to stress about and that is a HUGE testament to Erin and all of the work she did. She was so crucial in connecting with all of our different vendors and getting them all on the same page, she was an incredible resource for any and all questions we had, no matter how big or small she was always there to help.

She was absolutely pivotal to why our big day was the best day of our lives and we cannot thank her enough for everything she did. Nor could we recommend anyone more than Erin for your big day. She will make you feel at ease even in the most stressful of times planning and getting ready for yo

ur wedding and it cannot be understated how awesome that feeling is.

Thank you EK!! You’re the best!
