    Amazing for event coordinating!
    Emee and her team are amazing! They are professional, responsive, creative, and wedding life savers! The first thing on the wedding list was to find a coordinator and Emee was the first choice out of 4 interviews and countless reviews of other coordinators. She had a very calm and collected demeanor while also being enthusiastic and provided a lot of ideas that fit within our budget. Emee also acted as a mediator between the differing ideas my husband and I had, in a very compassionate way. We really wanted a coordinator that would take care of the craziness that can happen behind the scenes so that my husband and I, as well as our family members, wouldn't have to worry about it. Intuitively, I knew there were things that Emee was probably saving from fires that I didn't have to deal with, and that was a God send. She even moved twinkle lights from another area to cover a window and it became a very cute back drop. It was obvious that she has a lot of experiences with planning events and is able to think outside of the box and be quick in action. She really worked with our budget and helped to create something that was unique to us. A lot of the vendors we used were through her suggestions and those turned out fantastic as well. We are overwhelmed with joy at how amazing our wedding turned out and reflected us as a couple, and Emee and her team were key components to making that possible.

    I thought EJP did a great job with our wedding. Easy to get a hold off and easy to talk to. They put your mind at ease and come up with good ideas that I would have not thought of. They were able to talk to my parents and explained things to them easily. The meetings were very productive and efficient. They gave us ideas of how to save some money on some ideas. Also they are green which I like. Both Emee and Katherine pay attention to detail. The rehearsal put me at ease and the day of the wedding went smoothly and was beautiful. They are experienced with Indian weddings. The support staff did a wonderful job. I would absolutely recommend EJP to others! Do doubt about it.

    Emee coordinated my wedding back in July and I was beyond impressed with the level of service she and her team provided on my special day. She is so easy to work with and her attention to detail is what made the event as wonderful as it was. I loved that she took over all vendor contact and delivered my props to the venue. Quite the load off for a busy bride. I can't thank her enough for her all of her hard work; I'd recommend her to anyone.

    I interviewed and hired Emee at EJP Events approximately 8 weeks before my wedding. I was interested in a small simple wedding of app. 30 people. Emee and her team provided excellent support before the wedding by supplying vendor options for me to interview and hire, excellent communications throughout reminding me of deadlines, payments and overall progress on our very tight timeframe. On the day of the wedding, Emee was one of the first people to arrive and I knew that I would not have to concern myself with any of the details of the day. Her calm demeanor and smiling face added to the joy of my special day. I highly recommend her services.

    I did not end up needing Emee's services because we are having our wedding in another state, but she was a pleasure to speak to with. She was professional and friendly and I know it would of been wonderful working with her if we were not having the wedding on the east coast.

Q&A

What types of customers have you worked with?
Complex weddings with unusual needs or multiple locations. Multicultural celebrations. Corporate special events and VIP meetings. Holiday parties. Fundraisers and auctions. Awards banquets and employee recognition. Celebrations of all life landmarks and company milestones.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Wedding and event planning is such a personal service. Be sure to shop around and look at your planner's portfolio to make sure he or she is experienced with the type of wedding you are envisioning for yourself, whether it is a geeky, offbeat wedding or a glamorous, formal, traditional affair. If you see your own type of event in the past portfolio of what your planner has done, it's a very good sign.
