    Thank you so so so much for all of your help throughout this long planning process. You and your team on the day of the event were lifesavers and I appreciate how calm you were through the ups and downs. Thank you for your wisdom in event planning that you shared with us to make our event great. I will never forget it, and neither will anyone in our office! I really appreciate you enduring the cold, while you waited for the later staff to arrive. You had our back through the whole night and made the evening run so smoothly! Thank you so much from the start of our event in negotiating the contract, to cleaning up the ballroom and organizing our stuff.

About this pro

We are dedicated to personal service, fresh ideas, and working with the client at their level to ensure a unique and memorable experience. We ask the event planning questions that many fail to even consider, thus ensuring a smoothly running event and happy attendees. I love that moment when everything fits together like a puzzle dropping into place. I love fading into the background and watching while yet another successful event unfolds and guests are happy, well-fed, and connected.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      When considering price, it's important to understand all of the services that are included across several vendors. We like to have a conversation about your personal needs and then create a proposal that will best suit the services you request. That being said, if you just want to see average prices, that's great! Just send us your email and phone number and we can get a brochure right out to you.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      The most important thing is to listen to customer needs. Event planning can cover so many options and people can enter the process from several different points. For example, one group may already have a venue and a theme, but no idea what to budget for the rest. Another group might be at the very beginning of the process and wondering what's possible in their budget range. Anyone, though, can benefit from an initial phone consultation, which takes on 30 minutes and is free of charge. After the initial consultation, we create a proposal and send it to you. If it looks like we're moving in the right direction, we can meet in person to go over any questions and changes, and to confirm your services. After that planning begins and goes through several phases depending on where the event planning process currently stands and the services booked. But normally we move through the following processes with the client: Design (Wants and needs, Look and feel); Budget Creation; Venue and Vendor Sourcing; Contracts and Details; and finally, Event Day Coordination. If the event is a public event or conference often there are Sponsorship, Marketing, and Promotion modules as well.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      Our owner, Emee, earned the Certified Meeting Professional designation from the Event Industry Council, in 2002. She has worked in hotels and catering since 1997. Other staff members have experience in interior design, psychology/sociology, and education -- all to create a well-rounded, experienced team that can serve a wide variety of events and constituencies. You never have to worry about a faux pas or an event gaffe because we have the experience, training, and diversity to make your guests comfortable and taken care of.
