Client Love

Our clients become dear friends and we’re so lucky that they like us as much as we like them. We consider ourselves Planners for Life and love it when a couple comes back and asks us to plan a baby shower, sister’s wedding, and other life celebrations.

Amazing, Awesome, Incredible, Marvelous, Stunning, Unbelievable, Wonderful . . . I can’t even come up with the right word to explain how priceless Emily Weddings was to our wedding. At one point in my life, I was a meeting and event planner, and we occasionally did weddings. I really didn’t think I needed to spend the money on a wedding planner because I knew I would piece it together myself. We ended up borrowing a piece of property from family friends, so there was no venue coordinator. I decided to use Emily Weddings, but really thought I wasn’t going to get my money’s worth. BOY WAS I WRONG! Seven ladies showed up that evening and did the most amazing job! Not only did they make sure that my vision was upheld. They made sure that NO ONE had any need or worry in the world. And we are talking about 200 guests and more than a dozen vendors. These ladies were amazing! My cousin told me this weekend that at one point her purse fell over and before she could lean over, three of the ladies were already there putting everything back together. I NEVER felt like I was having to answer any questions or talk to any of the vendors or solve any problems, nor was there ever a hint of it. To be honest with you, they are worth two, three, even four times what we paid for them. You will not regret using them and you would be foolish if you don’t.

The Emily Weddings team is fantastic! They know exactly how to handle ANY emergency with professionalism – from a forgotten garter to surprise SNOW at an outdoor beach wedding in April. Not only did they put everybody at ease, they did it effortlessly. They are experts at what they do!

BEST INVESTMENT! Hurricane Hermine decided to show up and ruin my outdoor wedding. It was incredibly stressful and I have no clue what I would have done without Rachel. She came hours earlier than contracted to the venue the day before to see the venue and spend time planning how to make everything work for an indoor wedding. She literally became my best friend during the last weeks of my wedding when everything started going wrong. She was right there fixing each thing and reassuring me the entire time my wedding would be perfect. I can’t tell you how many of our guests, vendors and family members complimented me on our “CIA Wedding Planners” who were every where handling everything while communicating on their secret service like ear pieces. They pulled off an absolutely AMAZING wedding day for me and I’m forever thankful to Rachel and her team. So very worth every penny to pick these ladies and know that your wedding will be handled just like it was their own. Thank you ladies so much!

I started out as one of those brides who didn’t think a wedding planner was necessary. I wanted to DIY everything and save money wherever I could. As I was meeting with vendors and explaining my vision, the same name kept coming up – Emily Weddings. You don’t realize when planning a wedding that yes, you can attempt to do everything yourself leading up to your wedding day, but do you really want to be worrying about small details the day of? My now husband and I finally decided to look into it and after our first meeting we felt completely reassured this would be money well spent. Not only do they have all the best contacts in the business, but they are so creative and resourceful! I never felt like they were juggling other weddings while working with me. There is no curve ball you can throw at them they can’t hit out of the park! Their years of experience in this industry really shows, which is invaluable for a new bride overwhelmed with options. Our relationship didn’t feel like a business I was paying for a service, but a dear friend who was equally excited for my husband and I’s big day. I didn’t have a single worry on my wedding day because of them. Everything went flawlessly and they made me and my husband feel like such VIPs the whole night. To all brides out there on the fence – the greatest gift is to see all your hard work and planning come together on your wedding day, so you can just completely relax and be in the moment. Emily Weddings gave this to us and we are forever grateful!

The Emily Weddings Team is truly the best. Carrie and her team of 4 other women executed a perfect wedding day for us. Our wedding was at a private home in Sandbridge and required rentals for EVERYTHING. Carrie helped us down-select to the BEST vendors that fit our budget AND provided amazing service. EWT went ABOVE and BEYOND on numerous occasions: We reserved a shuttle to take our wedding party and rehearsal dinner guests to the rehearsal dinner at the Attic @ Waterman’s. At the schedule pickup time, we saw no one. When we called the shuttle company, all we got was “We don’t know where the driver is.” Ummm. WHAT?! I approached EWT unsure of what we should do and Carrie’s first response was, “I can fit 7 in my van.” There was no hesitation, only a steadfast desire to make this weekend perfect for our families and guests. It POURED on our wedding day. Leaving our hair appt, we needed to be ready to decide where to have the wedding, on the outside lawn or in the clear top tent. Due to the uncertainty of the rain we chose the “backup plan”, the tent. I have no idea what kind of magic these women work, but the pouring rain tent ceremony and reception was BETTER than anything we could have imaged. I am glad it rained! During the wedding planning period Carrie and EWT were extremely responsive and professional. My father and I are both type-A people and having a team so professional and caring allowed us to let go and enjoy. Carrie made sure we learned the best phrase a bride and her parents could hear, “Not my problem, Carrie will handle it.” Thank you EWT; our wedding was better than anything we could have imagined.
