    Essence of Events was completely there for us on the day of our wedding. From setting up tables and chairs, placing the decorations we provided, coordinating with the vendors and breaking everything down. They also did our floral which turned out exactly as we wanted. They did everything for us and we were able to just relax and enjoy our wedding day.

    Essence of Events is on the ball - I had explicit details of how I wanted our reception hall to be set up and they followed through to a T. They were confident in their abilities, offered up great suggestions and left me feeling completely at ease that they would complete the look I was after. Yahoo!!!! Thanks ladies, everything was spot on. :) -Katie

    Great ladies. Seem very professional. Did have a few communication issues but it is their busy season. Very dedicated to what they do. We did decide to go with someone else but not because of anything negative from EOE.

    Michelle was amazing. She is so great and easy to work with and really gave me such peace of mind on my wedding day. I had a huge grand wedding and knowing she know what I wanted let me just enjoy my day and not worry about it. And my wedding day was absolutely perfect! I only used her day-of coordination services since I did most other things myself, but it was one of the best decisions I made! Ever bride should have a day of coordinator!!! And if you are looking for someone to help with more planning she is the perfect gal to go to! She can really do everything if you need it! Highly recommend!

    I have to say at the beginning we were not to convinced about having a wedding planner. Then we realized that it was our day and we didn't want to be running around like crazy the day of our wedding. We started looking and saw that you can have a coordinator for the day. We were trying to save some money. I met Michelle at the wedding expo. I stopped just to ask about there service and she was very nice, professional and helpful. We set an appointment and from there we realized it was well worth it. They listened to our ideas, our concerns and to everything. They gave us ideas and lots of info. Everything was perfect the day of the wedding. Nichole did an amazing job. To this day we have a lot of friends and family members who give us a lot of good compliments about our wedding. They also commented on how organized, smooth, beautiful and how wonderful of a job she did. I highly recommend Michelle and her team. Nichole took a big weight off of our shoulders. She was on top of everything. If you are thinking of having a wedding it is worth it to have a wedding planner. I highly recommend it because you will not regret it a bit. We love these girls and would recommend them to anyone. Thanks, Essence of Events team (Michelle & Nichole) Jazmin & Todd Studebaker :-)

    The stress was taken off. Everything from planning to the setup to the the end was amazing. I really don't think we would have been able to pull it off without Essence of Events Llc. Everyone was so professional and pleasant. We didn't have to worry about a thing, they were able to set things in motion with out a hiccup. We even forgot some items we needed, they improvised so well and so quickly. I will be using them again very shortly and will be telling everyone I know about their professionalism and care of their clients. Job well done. Thank You Michelle and the rest of the crew.
