About this pro
We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding planner than Emily. She made our special day even more memorable by paying attention to details that are easy to miss. She is a pleasure to work with and managed all aspects of our wedding planning from start to finish. She is accessible for help at all times and replied to our questions/concerned in a timely manner with clear solutions. Her attention to details is outstanding, which made wedding planning effortless for us. I would highly recommend her for any social event planning and especially for weddings. I believe it is difficult to find someone as tenacious about their work as Emily is about planning and making your special event memorable for you.May 9, 2016

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to get together with new clients and have a candid conversation to get to know more about them and the event. This discussion can occur over the phone or in-person. Depending on the type of event, I will send the client a questionnaire to find out more about the specifics of the event. For partial and full service weddings, I provide the client with a mock budget containing estimates. This budget can be used by the client throughout the planning process to keep track of expenses and the overall budget.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?After planning my own wedding, I found that I really enjoyed the process and had a passion for planning. I began helping friends and coworkers plan their weddings, and after hearing "you should do this as your job" for the umpteenth time, I decided to follow my passion. From my time in public accounting, I have also planned several corporate and charity events, such as holiday parties and silent auctions.
