“My husband and I were able to enjoy every second of our wedding day without any worry of something going wrong because we knew we were in great hands.”

I am the type of person with lots of ideas, but turning those ideas into a reality can be overwhelming on my own.  That’s why I always knew that I wanted a professional wedding planner to help make my dreams come true. When I first met Erica I knew she would be the perfect fit.  In the 11 months of planning Erica was extremely accommodating and flexible, and if I ever had a question I could just email or text her and she would reply with an answer in no time at all.  She also had great recommendations and suggestions for vendors and design options. The real life-saver was her handy spreadsheet that organized all my ideas with timelines and budgets so it was easy to keep track of everything.  Suffice to say, our wedding day was perfect and everything turned out better than we could have imagined. We received so many compliments from our guests on how the day was so wonderfully laid out.  My husband and I were able to enjoy every second of our wedding day without any worry of something going wrong because we knew we were in great hands.  This we owe completely to Erica and her supreme organization and attention to detail.

Thank you for the wonderful memories, Erica!

Erica came highly recommended and thankfully agreed to work together in planning our wedding…in 2 short months! From our first meeting, Erica listened to our vision and then guided with her experience to ensure we had the most magical day – which we did! Not only did Erica come with us to vendors, she kept us on budget, shared amazing contacts and ideas, sent updates and gentle reminders to keep everything on track, all while having fun together. She thought of things we simply could not have anticipated, no matter how many blogs and stories one could read! Her countless hours and time did not go unnoticed, at all hours of the day/night. Always professional, her positive ‘no-problem’ approach made the planning ‘appear’ seamless! With Erica handling all the details it allowed us to enjoy the whole process and our wedding day together. Right down to the day-of schedule, we were able to be with family and friends, knowing all the details were handled! Erica radiates a warm, confident, and calm energy that was a gift to have on our special day.

A year later now, looking back, there is not one thing we would have changed and I attribute that to Erica and her unwavering attention to detail, thank you again!! xo

“Your quiet presence and help on rehearsal night was invaluable.  You showed great respect for the pastor and the guidelines of the church. Your attention to the details of the decor and the needs of the bride and groom were noted and appreciated.”

Dear Erica,

I am writing to once again thank you for a job well done in assisting us to plan Keltie and Martin’s wedding. You provided us with eight months of professionalism, planning, negotiating, coordinating of services, and warm friendship.  It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation.

Your first meeting with us was warm and comfortable as you sought out the personalities of Keltie and Martin and their thoughts and possible desires for their wedding.  You gave suggestions and examples for decorating, flowers and transportation to get things started.

You introduced us to great service providers and were willing to accompany us to appointments with them.  We were able to take advantage of discounts passed along to you for your clients.  All the services that you recommended, Awe Events and Bloomin Funky, were excellent in their own right.  You went the extra mile when you found the graphic designer, Kalijo Works Inc., for all the invitations and stationary. The finished products were just what Keltie wanted.

We valued your dedication to the budget. You provided us with updates and helped us stay on track. Your best update was the one telling us we were in under budget!

We truly appreciated your efforts in the dealings with the hotel for the reception. There were some difficult situations but you negotiated them patiently and professionally for us. You kept us informed at all times and certainly calmed frayed nerves on several occasions.

Your quiet presence and help on rehearsal night was invaluable.  You showed great respect for the pastor and the guidelines of the church. Your attention to the details of the decor and the needs of the bride and groom were noted and appreciated.

The morning of the wedding day was relatively calm and we owe that to you as well. The detailed schedule that you prepared for the day was perfect. It certainly helped us stay on track and made preparations go smoothly. You ensured that all the details at the church were taken care of anticipating our arrival.  Your cheery face and calming influence got us all down the aisle on time. Then the real magic began.  As I, the mother of the bride sat in the church I could relax and enjoy the day because you had walked this journey with us.

The reception was undeniably beautiful. Everything ran so smoothly and efficiently. The MC valued your guidelines and suggestions for the order and placement of speeches. Your attentiveness to all the details was noted by others and we were grateful that you handled all the specifics with the hotel staff and disc jockey. We were so impressed that you stayed with us throughout the entire evening.

We will, without hesitation, happily recommend you and your services to anyone requiring event planning. It has been an absolute pleasure working with you.

Sincerely,
Nancy Titley (Mother of the Bride)

“She was personable, professional, knowledgeable, efficient and certainly worthy of hire.  As the groom, the greatest benefit to me was knowing the love of my life was totally at peace and happy because she had a competent and reliable planner at her disposal 24/7.  Thank you Erica!!!”

When my fiancée first told me she wanted to hire a wedding planner for our fast approaching wedding, I was skeptical.  I was reluctant to add what I thought was an unnecessary expense to our budget.  I figured most of the planning and preparation could be handled by ourselves along with family and friends.  However, my fiancée’s desire prevailed and we decided to hire the services of Erica Irwin.  A decision we did not regret.

Planning a wedding can be a very stressful experience, but hiring a wedding planner to shoulder most of the weight enables you to enjoy the process rather than be frustrated by it.  Erica did exactly that for us.  She was personable, professional, knowledgeable, efficient and certainly worthy of hire.  As the groom, the greatest benefit to me was knowing the love of my life was totally at peace and happy because she had a competent and reliable planner at her disposal 24/7.  Thank you Erica!!!
