I met with and hired Emily just 2 months before my wedding. I had all of my vendors in place, the style set. . .but no one to orchestrate the day. What if a vendor didn't show up, or there was an unexpected situation that arose that day? Who was going to manage the schedule? I cannot have imagined the wedding without her! From the moment I met Emily, she greeted me with a hug, and pulled out a wedding folder (our names were already printed down the spine), with all of our vendors and details, etc., I knew we were in very professional, excellent hands. A huge weight was lifted off of my shoulders, not to mention my mother's shoulders.
Emily did so much more for us than serve as a "day of coordinator". She attended all of my
final walk-throughs with vendors,
and even suggested a better and
more cost efficient linen company
which allowed us to get more detail
with less money. She was the go-to
person for my wedding etiquette
questions (i.e. how much should I
tip each vendor?), and also
was full of helpful suggestions
that made preparation and the actual
day very smooth.
Emily is intuitive and flexible. She is never pushy, but knows how to help you get the best results from your vendors. Think of her as the quarterback of the wedding team :) Most importantly, Emily allowed me to be a guest at my own wedding. There was no stress the day of - no stress! I could relax, enjoy the preparation during the day with my wedding party and family, and enjoyed every second of our ceremony, pictures, and reception.
As a "Type A" personality, I like to be organized, and to have my ducks in a row, but with Emily, I was able to trust her, and let go of all of the "what ifs", etc.. I knew if something did not go according to plan (and something normally does when it comes to weddings), Emily would be there to redirect, and handle. As a result, our day was seamless, and the best day of our lives to date. We were able to focus on what was really important - getting married to one another.
I would recommend Emily as one of the most important vendors in the slew of selections any bride and groom makes. I will be forever grateful for her assistance.
I would recommend Emily of Your
Heart's Desire Wedding consultant
to any future bride. Emily is the
calm in the middle of the storm.
Her ideas are creative and her
execution is incredibly detailed.
She listens to the brides' ideas and
gives honest feedback. Without
Emily, our wedding would have
been far less professional and
far less enjoyable for both guests
and the bride and groom. She answered our questions with patience and treated our family and friends with respect. Emily knows how to motivate a crowd! Also, her connections gave us our wonderful photographer, DJ, linens....practically everything on the list. Because of Your Heart's Desire, we wouldn't change a think about our wedding. We were free to enjoy one another.
Emily really exceeded our
expectations in almost every way.
She guided us through this
meticulous process without ever
losing sight of our goals. I'm sure
she had clients who were spending
far more on their weddings, but
she never made us feel as if we
were being too thrifty. She has
developed wonderful relationships
with vendors that provide amazing
quality for their cost, and maintained
a constant dialogue with them on our behalf to make sure we were able to get exactly what we wanted. I'm sorry if this just seems like we're gushing, but we really couldn't be happier with our experience.
