Wedding Planning

“Locations, food, decorations, music, colors, flowers, gifts, rings, dances, oh, my, gosh, it, goes, on and on and on how can I do all this by myself and in only a year I don’t know where to start!?!?!?!?!?”

If this sounds like your stream of consciousness now that you’re engaged, I can’t wait to hear from you! We’ll go get some cake, or a drink, or take a walk through the park with puppies, or whatever you need so that you can take a deep breath and begin the stress-free process of planning your wedding with Emily Katherine Events. Emily Katherine Events can help you from the start, with budgeting, vendor selection, design, and timeline creation. And obviously after all that work I wouldn’t miss out on the big day! Our full service package includes rehearsal direction and day-of coordination as well. We are here for any help you need, from the moment there’s a ring on it ’til your party has ended and your new lives begin.

“I would also describe myself as a worrier, but I did not have a single concern the day of our wedding. We had 210 guests, mostly for out of town, and Emily flawlessly executed transportation, all vendor deliveries, every detail of the ceremony, and even was able to modify the reception timeline as needed during the reception to best accommodate my husband and me. I could not have been happier with how our wedding went, and best of all I and my family were able to feel as if we were guests at our own wedding.”

Erin & Scott

“Emily is amazing! She ran with our board game/ Harry Potter/ Game of Thrones all nerd wedding and made it classic and beautiful with our nerdy intertwined. Emily is organizing, creative and above all else just a nice person. We loved working with her!”

Charlotte & Arthur

“Emily was amazing. She was really organized and knowledgeable from the first today we met with her months before the wedding, and helped us plan and make each moment wonderful on the big day.”

Cathy & Brendan

“Working with Emily was a dream – from our first meeting with her until my husband and I were driving away from our wedding, she was attentive, efficient, and so available. She is kind, calm, thoughtful, fun to work with, and so passionate about what she does – which means she was always seeking to bring our vision to life!”

Louise & Joel

“We can’t say enough wonderful things about Emily! She truly loves weddings and making sure you have a beautiful, personalized, stress-free day. She even made the planning process fun. Both of our families couldn’t stop talking about how calm, prepared and professional Emily is. Her connections in the wedding industry also helped us get beautiful custom invitations and excellent photography for outrageously low prices. Our wedding was perfect and exactly what we wanted thanks to Emily.”
