Emily, what CANT I say?! She was an excellent guide in food, event planning, and day of coordination. Everyone should have the help of a wedding coordinator and EVERYONE should have the help of Emily Spencer. Her presence gave way to amazing cuisine, perfect timing during wedding day, and she handled our boisterous wedding party with ease at rehearsal. The bride shouldn’t run the show come wedding day - Emily should .   -Whitney, June 2018
I cant even begin to express how happy we are with how our wedding turned out! It was simply a dream!  Emily played a huge role in its success and I can confidently say that it wouldn't have been the same without her there. She was there hours before the ceremony started to ensure that setup was going smoothly and she stayed until we felt that there was no more need for coordinating (about when the dancing began). I got the chance to feel like a BRIDE and my mom got to feel like a MOTHER OF THE BRIDE - no planning was needed from us that day. I HIGHLY recommend having a wedding coordinator and I HIGHLY recommend having Emily 🙂 She is more than any bride & groom and their family could ask for!   -Brooke, September 2018
Emily was an incredible day of wedding coordinator. She was so organized and prepared and posed some really great questions to think about based on her experience that we had not thought of / left out. She made contact with all of the vendors ahead so the day of went smoothly and was a complete joy to work with on the biggest day of our life. She was amazing at directing a large group of people without sounding bossy or too harsh. When we did have a couple small hiccups throughout the day / night, Emily handled them like a total pro, staying calm, cool, and collective and came up with an immediate alternative solution for the situation at hand. I can not recommend her and her amazing services enough for a wedding or any special event! She really made our wedding go incredibly smoothly and know she would do the same for your as well!  -Jodie, August 2018
