Mrs. Bahar S. Merson

"You were a miracle worker on the day of our wedding! I don't know how a bride coordinates a wedding on her own, there are just so many details to deal with! You were responsive, helpful, and resourceful. You listened to what I really wanted and needed and did exactly what I asked. You stayed cool under pressure and everything turned out beautifully. My mother said that you provided such a high level of commitment and service that it seemed like you were planning your own wedding! I absolutely agree with my mother, imagine that! I wholeheartedly would recommend you to any prospective bride and groom planning their wedding. You will give them peace of mind so that they can focus on the most important part of the wedding, celebrating their commitment to one another! Erin, thank you so much for your dedication on the most important day of my life!"

"We cannot thank you enough for everything you did for us! Our wedding turned out more spectacular than we could have ever imagined thanks to you! Not only did everything turn out beautifully, having you there along the way made the planning process so much easier. Our wedding was flawless and was the most wonderful day of our lives! We would also like to thank you for the romantic setting we found in our suite! It was a magnificent end to a perfect evening and completely unexpected! You are amazing at what you do and we were very fortunate to have you as our coordinator!"

Mark & Meg

"What can we say but thank you, thank you, thank you!!! We owe you so much. As we look at the photos from our wedding, we see you handy work in every one of them. The place looked fabulous! Hopefully Mike’s truck is recovering from all the flowers! Keep up the break dancing and air guitar playing!"

Erin & Sean Jose

"Thank you for everything you did for us and for making our day so special! We could not have imagined a better day! Also, thank you so much for the gift! For everything you did, you really didn’t have to get us anything!"
