Allison - Bride " honestly the best investment you will make for your wedding!

Emily from Em + E Events was vital in the success of our wedding day. We hired her for day-of coordination. We felt strongly about planning all of the details ourselves but needed the piece of mind on our wedding day that everything would come together and that no one would bother us with problems or issues. Emily met with us several times prior to ensure that she understood our vision and that we were not missing any key details. She helped us create a day-of timeline so that everything was seamless. She and her team executed our wedding perfectly and we were able to enjoy every second with our guests. Emily was known and well-respected amongst our other vendors and already had a positive working relationship with them. A day-of coordinator (if not more) is honestly the best investment you will make for your wedding!

Courtney - Bride "she'll make your day more perfect than you could ever imagine!"

From the first day we met Emily of Em + E Events, we knew she would be a perfect fit for our day. The venue we selected was a DIY venue so we immediately hired Emily for her full-planning package (which was extremely reasonable compared to other local planners). Throughout the course of planning, Emily's professionalism was astounding. Her availability didn't go unnoticed and she always made it a point to check-in (whether it be for planning or just to say hello and wish us well) and she would know when to schedule planning meetings as needed. She adapted to our ever changing needs and requests but also wasn't afraid to tell us if our ideas weren't the best fit for our overall theme--conversely, she responded well to our criticisms of ideas and adjusted accordingly. Her knowledge of the Pittsburgh wedding market is ever growing and she saved us financially countless time--(every penny counts)! The vendors she recommended were all professional and amazing. Financially, Emily has a nice system set up for payments as well that did not seem pushy or pestering. I believe one check of ours got lost in the mail and she kindly sent a text just to check the status and we sent another immediately. The day of our wedding went off without a hitch--she brings in a small team of her own to assist with the day of needs (again, financially reasonable). All the planning came together so smoothly. She had to make some behind the scene calls we were unaware of during the day and her intuition/knowledge proved invaluable for those decisions. Lastly, she stayed within our budget. The only times we went over budget is when we wanted something she said would put us over haha! If we ever plan another event of any kind, we'll be sure to reach out to Emily. We could not recommend Emily enough as we know she'll make your day more perfect than you could ever imagine! Thanks Emily!

 Emma - Bride "Highly HIGHLY recommend this cool chick

"I don't even know how to begin talking about how awesome Emily is. Emily worked as our day-of coordinator for our wedding a few weeks ago. We weren't sure we needed a coordinator but decided to find someone just for reassurance. From day one, Emily was just that: reassuring. Emily and her assistants made our day easy and worry-free. If something went wrong, I didn't notice, and I give all that credit to Em. She's got great style, great energy and is super reasonable. Highly HIGHLY recommend this cool chick"

Brandon - Groom "I couldn't recommend her enough"

Emily and Em + E Events was the best decision my wife and I made for our big day. From day one, Emily was extremely professional, caring, kind, considerate, knowledgeable, helpful, and affordable (Her full-planning package was extremely reasonable). Our first meeting, I remember letting her know that we had 2 venues in mind. One being completely DIY (which we would need her for), and the other would be completely handled by the venue's staff. She was extremely professional in her response and thanked us for our time, hoped we would let her plan our day, and said she hoped to hear from us soon. If I recall, she also sent a follow up email that week just nicely checking in and asking if planning was going well and to let her know if she could be of any assistance. My wife and I took the weekend to discuss what we wanted in our day and decided that the difference between the venue in question and the DIY space was Emily herself. She did mention in her first meeting, Em + E Events was relatively new to the scene but she came off as such a seasoned professional, looking back we couldn't see our day without her. With an invite list of nearly 300, this wasn't a small feat. Emily took it in stride every step of the way. She was so good at what she does, she got the groom (myself) to be extremely excited about the planning process! She coordinated with our choices of vendors so well and every time we spoke to the vendors personally, they would always mention how great it is to work with Emily. She was able to stay in our budget and also tell us when we were going a little too above and beyond price wise. The wedding day was perfection. No detail went unnoticed with Emily and her staff...We are a few months past our wedding day at this point and we still get texts and calls saying our guests have never seen something so beautiful and amazing as our wedding day. We wanted a trendy yet classy/traditional theme and Emily hit it out of the park. I couldn't recommend her enough. Thanks again Emily!!

Jordan - Bride ""Amazing" does not even begin to describe Emily and her wedding planning service

""Amazing" does not even begin to describe Emily and her wedding planning service. She continuously goes above and beyond to answer my questions, send me inspiration, and make sure I've been doing OK through the planning process. We are still about 10 months out from our big day, and hired Emily for day-of coordination and decorating about 6 months ago. She has been perfect so far, and I don't anticipate that changing."

Angelea - Blanc De Blanc Bridal Launch Party "Emily had the best and most creative ideas”

"Emily from Em + E events is an absolutely amazing event planner to work with! Emily helped me plan my boutique launch party and to say the least, the party was a major success. Emily had the best and most creative ideas with decoration, dessert and drink concepts that fit my brand perfectly. She also helped spread the word about the launch party and we had such a great turn out. Along with Emily being super talented and highly organized, she is one of the sweetest and kindest women I've ever met. She made the event planning process on my end a breeze and very fun. I would highly recommend Emily as an event and wedding planner for any of my brides and friends."
