About this pro
Hands down, Erica was THE BEST decision we made for our wedding. From day one, she was professional, very organized, and delightful to be around. We were clueless about how to tackle all of these little details and still be successful at our full time jobs! She provided us with a list of to-do’s every step of the way. From providing vendor recommendations to coordinating between them, she took a weight off of us through the entire process. Having her at our vendor meetings really helped keep everyone on the same page! She took the initiative to reach out when it was time for a meeting or my attention was needed on a certain item. We had several changes to our rentals (my fault!) along the way and, as a full coordination wedding, she shielded me from the headache of these revisions and coordinated them. (THANK YOU, ERICA!) Even when our makeup artist cancelled a month before the wedding, Erica made sure we had another exceptional vendor booked before the end of that day. As we neared the big day, Erica created a play by play timeline for the wedding weekend down to the 10 minute increment for our wedding party, families, and vendors. Her knowledge, communication skills, and professional connections in Huntsville were invaluable to making sure everything was coordinated correctly and appear effortless! Lynn joined Erica a month out before our wedding as our event’s second coordinator. Lynn is so sweet and helpful! She helped with several items to ensure that extra coordinating the day of went even smoother. Erica ensured that our expectations were communicated clearly and made sure to tell us when something wasn’t reasonable. She was amazing to work with and I loved the opportunity to get to know her! Erica is one of the kindest people and genuinely cared about making our day special. I am so glad we hired Helping Hand for full coordination! Our wedding day was everything I thought it would be and so much more. Helping Hand gave us our DREAM WEDDING!Oct 10, 2017Erica T.'s reply
Thank you, Rachel and Stephen! Loved working with you two!
Erica keeps everything so organized the day of the wedding that I literally did not worry about a single thing! She was so professional and gave such good advice. I thought I could handle a 130 person wedding myself, but boy was I wrong. I am so glad I hired her! The day was perfect and I couldn't have asked for anything better.Oct 23, 2015
We interviewed 3 wedding planners before meeting Erica. Erica is the best wedding planner in town!! I do not say rhat lightly She attended to all of our needs and was so well organized. Every thing I wanted Erica made sure I had. She worked with our budget and worked around the clock for us. I wish I could personally talk with each bride or groom that reads this review because words do not seem to express how happy we felt after working with Helping Hands. You will not wrong! She is a wonderful person.Aug 10, 2015
I received many compliments on being the most relaxed bride they’ve ever seen from my guests, and it is all a great credit to Erica. Her attention to details is reflected in the precise timeline she provided us and our wedding was executed flawlessly as a result of her directing skills and regular communication with all our vendors. She gave us fantastic vendor suggestions, and her experience was extremely helpful to our decision making in all aspects for the wedding. She kept us on track in our 6-month planning with regular meetings around our hectic work and travel schedules. The day of the wedding, I woke up knowing I’m in good hands and simply sat back and enjoyed my getting ready time with my bridesmaids, our ceremony, and our time with guests at the reception. At the end of the evening, we also left knowing she has everything covered and just relax and unwind for the rest of the night.May 15, 2017
We are EXTREMELY grateful for Erica's detailed planning and for her ability to provide us with peace of mind before and on our wedding day. It is incredibly challenging to get 90 family members and 125 total guests at the right place, at the right time. It would not have been possible without Erica's expertise and professional attitude. She stayed late at work for us; she bridged communication gaps between families; she even sat down with my husband and me before the rehearsal dinner to go over every detail, start-to-finish. We continuously receive compliments about the ceremony and reception-- certainly we and everyone else were impressed by the smooth execution of such a momentous and sacred event. God bless Erica. She truly allowed me to focus on the day and soak it all in because I knew she'd take care of everything else-- good or bad-- that popped up last minute. They say you never remember your wedding day because it's "such a blur"-- but I remember and cherish every moment knowing I was worry-free, present, and happy. I can't thank her enough. We recommend her to all of our engaged friends and family members every chance we get.Jan 6, 2016
