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.Feb 17, 2017Verified
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.Nov 27, 2013Verified
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.Sep 23, 2013Verified
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.Sep 7, 2014Verified
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.Oct 18, 2017
- 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 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 how to get started. Anyone, though, can benefit from an initial phone consultation, which takes only 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. 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.
