“Every time we met Erica she reflected openness while at the same time providing valuable feedback even when she did not agree with our approach. This made us feel confident that she was not just some “sales” person interested in agreeing with you at all costs.”

We just wanted to take a few moments to say thank you to Erica who of course helped to plan our wedding this year. She received glowing recommendations from one of our friends so we thought we would take our chances and hire her without even looking for anyone else. It was not a mistake. Every time we met Erica she reflected openness while at the same time providing valuable feedback even when she did not agree with our approach. This made us feel confident that she was not just some “sales” person interested in agreeing with you at all costs. I cannot tell you how important it is to be able to strike that balance between being open to our vision while interjecting when necessary. She was always diplomatic and is obviously very use to dealing with all kinds of personalities. Even my husband who frankly, was not initially thrilled with the idea of a Wedding Planner had to acquiesce to the fact that I was right on this one. He couldn’t stop saying how thankful he was that she was there and how we never could have made it without her assistance. At the end of day, we found a person we both genuinely liked who matched her affability with great skill.

Bravo! Annemarie and Eddie.

“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!

“Walking in to our wedding and reception venues was surreal. Erica had somehow pulled together a wedding beyond what we had hoped and dreamed about.”

My husband and I needed to plan our wedding within two weeks to ensure a very ill parent could be a part of the day. We had the immense fortune of finding Erica Irwin, who bravely took on this challenge and knocked it out of the park. With very minimal direction from us, Erica was able to suss out our style, connect us with her exceptional vendors, and presented us with a phenomenal decor scheme. Erica used her wealth of experience to establish a work plan that we all worked off of to ensure no piece was missed during this flurry of planning. Erica also understood the immense time constraints we were under caring for a sick loved one, and went above and beyond handing many emails and texts herself, and even vendor payments on our behalf. Walking in to our wedding and reception venues was surreal. Erica had somehow pulled together a wedding beyond what we had hoped and dreamed about. We received many compliments on all aspects of our day. Almost one year later, when we reflect back on our day, we cannot think of anything more we would have wanted, and always end our musings with a, “thank goodness for Erica!”

Sincerely,

Rhea and Alisdair

“I also appreciated all the ways you helped us to spend our money wisely.  It’s easy to get excited and go overboard when dreaming of your wedding but you kept us in check and helped to pick what best fit our budget.”

Chris and I can’t thank you enough for all you did for us to help make our special day the most memorable day of our lives. You’re help through the planning phase was a lifesaver, even to this type A control freak! At first, I was worried about working with a planner but you were fantastic and helped to make the entire experience an enjoyable one. I really appreciated your suggestions as well as you letting me micro manage the whole thing. Your flexibility was fantastic along with your recommendations. I also appreciated all the ways you helped us to spend our money wisely. It’s easy to get excited and go overboard when dreaming of your wedding but you kept us in check and helped to pick what best fit our budget. The result was truly the wedding of our dreams!

I especially appreciated your help on the night of the rehearsal. Who would have thought after seeing so many weddings on movies and TV that I had no idea how they actually go!

Having you as our Wedding Planner was worth every penny! My Mom and I got to enjoy every moment leading up to the wedding without worry! On the wedding day, Chris and I were also able relax and enjoy our guests knowing you had everything under control and would let us know where to be and when.

Thank you! I will definitely be recommending you to anyone getting married that I come across!

Sincerely,

Lori and Chris Needham
