We started our planning process thinking that a day of coordinator was unnecessary. Our wedding was 75 people and we were very organized. But all our married friends told us we were wrong and needed one. Now, we understand and are so happy to have hired Erin.
Our wedding was super DIY and everything would not have come together so wonderfully without her. Erin juggled countless roles working 11.5 hours the day of the wedding to make sure everything went perfectly. She set-up our entire ceremony and reception space. For example, we handed her a pile of glass bottles and grocery stores flowers along with a rough sketch of what we wanted, and she turned that into these stunning centerpieces. She also coordinated with our various vendors throughout the day -- making sure they arrived on time and had everything they needed. During the wedding itself, Erin was toiling away behind the scenes to make sure everything ran smoothly. She queued our ceremony music, directed guests during dinner, coordinated clean-up, and so much more.
Erin has a great work process for making sure she has all the detail she needs the day of the wedding. All of that planning and organization enabled us to relax and just enjoy our wedding day knowing she had it handled. We wanted someone who would come in to execute our detailed vision, and Erin did that beautifully. However she’s also able to help brainstorm and help organize the planning process if that’s what you need.
Hiring Erin was easily one of the best decisions we made and worth what we spent a million time over.
