From the first meeting with Erica, I knew she had the experience and sense of style we were looking for in planning our wedding. Her friendly and enthusiastic personality made our appointments something to look forward to – like meeting up with a friend!

We were continually impressed with her organization, ideas and support. She gently guided us to ensure we had essential services booked in plenty of time and always replied to our inquires very quickly. When choosing vendors, she provided many options but was also pleased to work with individuals we suggested. The one time we hit a speed bump, she was quick to help us figure out a new plan. It was also essential to have Erica on the wedding weekend. Both Grant and I were able to celebrate with friends and family worry free as we were so confident in the planning and the work that had already been done. Erica handled all timelines and questions from the vendors. The wedding was gorgeous from start to finish and our only job that day was to enjoy it.

We cannot recommend Erica highly enough.

Sincerely

Annie Docking and Grant Frahm

“From early on in the process, it was apparent that her attention to detail would bring our dream wedding to life. She had every angle covered and provided regular email updates.”

My husband and I are both busy professionals. The time and effort needed to plan a wedding seemed next to impossible for us. We made the decision early on that we would hire a wedding planner and Erica beyond exceeded our expectations.From early on in the process, it was apparent that her attention to detail would bring our dream wedding to life. She had every angle covered and provided regular email updates. These included timelines, budget updates and the occasional gentle reminder of outstanding items on my to do list. We were confident that nothing would be missed under her watchful eye.

She made recommendations when choosing vendors, dealt with the hassles of contract negotiations and provided price comparisons we could review. She had a wealth of knowledge on many local businesses in the area. This was invaluable in helping us make the right decisions.

My wedding day was amazing! I was able to sit back and enjoy the day instead of stressing about a bunch of details. She came well equipped to deal with any “bumps in the road” including a minor dress mishap on my wedding day that needed some extra pins. She really did think of everything!! Our day turned out to be flawless and we have memories that we will cherish forever.

It was almost sad when the day was over, not only was Erica an extremely professional and amazing wedding planner, but I now consider her a friend. You will have no regrets if you choose to hire her to make your day just as special!

Sincerely,
Karen & James

“We definitely attribute the success of our wedding to Erica. My closest friends and family still talk about how wonderful the day was. My Mother and bridesmaids truly got to enjoy their day with me and we had such an amazing time together because I had entrusted everything with Erica.”

Erica was incredible to work with. My husband and I run our own Real Estate team and we knew we were not going to have the time or the resources to plan a wedding. Erica impressed us every step of the way from the moment we hired her until the late hours of our wedding reception.

As weeks went by, we never had to worry about anything because Erica was on top of it. We would receive ‘update’ emails from her on a regular basis and met on occasion to finalize important details. The best part was, not only were these meetings incredibly productive but Erica is a ton of fun so it was so nice to discuss all things wedding with her while enjoying her company.

When it came to suppliers, her recommendations were a hit. She works with some amazing people in the industry and did all of the shopping around for us. There is so much to plan when it comes to your wedding and it can easily be overwhelming, people asked us constantly how we were managing and how stressed we must be. However, we can honestly say, it was easy. Erica is one of the most efficient, professional, and organized people I have ever had the pleasure to work with. And on top of that, Erica is fabulously fun with impeccable taste. She is everything you could ever want when it comes to planning such a special event!

We definitely attribute the success of our wedding to Erica. My closest friends and family still talk about how wonderful the day was. My Mother and bridesmaids truly got to enjoy their day with me and we had such an amazing time together because I had entrusted everything with Erica. There were no duties on my big day – other than getting to the church! It was perfect and my husband has expressed the same sentiment.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Erica. We couldn’t have had such a perfect day without your help!

“The planning process went so smoothly because you were so easy going, patient, organized and always had great ideas. Anytime I didn’t know what I was going to do for certain things you always came up with great ideas, which we used and made our day that much more special.”

As soon as we first met with you we knew we wanted to work with you. The planning process went so smoothly because you were so easy going, patient, organized and always had great ideas. Anytime I didn’t know what I was going to do for certain things you always came up with great ideas, which we used and made our day that much more special.

We both were able to enjoy every minute of the wedding day knowing you were behind the scene taking care of everything.  Everyone at our wedding was gushing about how great our wedding planner was. Friends and family still waiting to get married will definitely have you in mind after seeing all the hard work you put into our wedding.

We wouldn’t have had the wedding of our dreams without you.  We can’t thank you enough for making our wedding day so special!

“Thank you so much for everything Erica – you are the “genuine article” and a veritable “wedding-pro”.  It certainly says something when guests and members of the wedding party remark on what a great wedding planner we had!”

When we decided to hire a wedding planner to make our day as special as it could be, we were confident it was the right decision, but were unprepared for just how amazing a difference it would make.

Well that “difference” comes down to one person – Erica Irwin.  Her care, professionalism and attention to detail were on full display from day one.  She listens.  Asking us what “experience” and “atmosphere” we wanted to create with our day, she keyed in to what was truly important for us – whether we were fully aware of it or not!   It is often said that the journey to a destination should be enjoyed just as much as the destination itself – well Erica certainly made that journey enjoyable, presenting us with a list of creative options and recommendations for each planning stage.  In doing this, she relieved us of the administrative burden and allowed us to focus on the decisions that would ultimately make our day special for ourselves, and even more importantly to us, for our guests.

Notably, Erica would channel her vast experience into letting us know whether an “idea” would work or not, or on issues such as the proper timing, order and number of speakers to ensure balance and a continuous energy for our reception.   The end result – with Erica’s care, guidance and planning wisdom, our day far exceeded our already high expectations – it was truly an amazing “life event”.

Thank you so much for everything Erica – you are the “genuine article” and a veritable “wedding-pro”.  It certainly says something when guests and members of the wedding party remark on what a great wedding planner we had!

Count Dominy and I as two of your biggest fans, of which there are many!

Thanks
