  • Hiring Eileen was the best decision I made for my Wedding and Day-after Brunch! She is excellent at what she does, and there little chance I would have been able to organize everything that goes into planning a wedding without her. It's not the big decisions that need to get made, everyone knows they need to buy a dress, but it's the little things like... here is a list of things you need to bring when you are getting ready so the photographer can create a great photo. Her attention to detail, organizational skills, and calm demeanor put me at ease, which gave me the opportunity to enjoy every moment of that day. She made contact with all of the vendors leading up to coordinate timing, she confirmed all song choices (which changed frequently until the last minute), and reviewed plans we discussed months ago to make sure they were executed flawlessly. The Day-after Brunch, which was amazing, only turned out to be so because of her. She connected with the caterer and confir... Read more

  • We booked Eileen in 2019 for our May 2020 wedding. From the moment we had an initial phone convo with her, there was a positive vibe. I knew she would be the perfect Day of Coordinator for us on our big day. Fast forward through a pandemic to the day we actually got to have our reception May 15, 2021 and we were not wrong. Eileen accommodated our postponement then walked us through postponing our event and replanning. She offered wonderful advice, guiding us through this crazy time. Starting a month out, she made our lives less stressful by staying on top of our vendors and making sure we were all in communication and aware of what was planned for May 15. On the day of, she and her assistant, Maria, were angels. They made sure things were running smoothly and everyone was where they needed to be. I don't think anything went wrong, and even if it did, she must've done a great job covering it up and making it work. They continuously checked on Christian and I to make sure we were ready f...

  • After much touch and go we encountered due to covid, we decided to move forward with our wedding reception and keep our date of 5/7/21. We initially spoke to Eileen back in early 2020 prior to the shut down and we were completely impressed with her attention to detail. We knew we needed help to alleviate the “to do” things both before and on the day of the wedding. When the day finally arrived, Eileen was on point. She nailed every little detail, had a specific timeline broken down meticulously. She is truly an angel and is soooooo well-versed in the world of weddings, we cannot begin to commend her outstanding support which was very much needed. We were so grateful to have her take part of our special day and appreciate all of her hard work. If you need a planner, we would highly recommend working with Eileen!

    Thank you so much! I am so happy that you and Jamuel were able to have the wedding you originally envisioned. You are both amazing and I hope you have a lifetime of happiness and an amazing time in Turks and Caicos. Send pictures!!

  • I cant even begin to explain how amazing Eileen was. Before she started to help, I was very stressed about how the day of would go, so we hired Eileen for day of coordination. We started with a meeting and kept in contact about changes till the day of the wedding. On the day of, I felt at ease because she was there handling all the little things from start to beginning. Even with Covid and all the regulations, she handled everything with such professionalism and kindness. I would 100% recommend her for any kind of planning, she knows what shes doing. Thank you so much Eileen for making the wedding even more perfect then I imagined! I didn't want the day to end!

  • We hired An Affair to Remember for their Day-of Coordinator services. We met with Eileen a few months prior to our wedding to run through the entire event and worked closely with her to help button up the final planning details. Eileen’s relationships with our local vendors proved to be invaluable as we approached our wedding day. She was able to take our vision and ensure our vendors executed flawlessly. Eileen’s many years of experience meant she knew what to look out for and how to keep the night on task. We are extremely grateful to have partnered with An Affair to Remember as it truly was exactly that, “an affair to remember.”

    It was such a pleasure working together on your wedding. What an amazing night! I wish you both so much happiness in your future. Tell Chief I said hi!

  • My wedding would not have been the day it was without Eileen. Actually, my wedding may not have happened without her. She was such a blessing to me, my husband, and my parents. She kept everyone on task, fought for me to have everything the way i envisioned it when no one else cared. My venue was nothing short of a nightmare and in the end, Eileen made it happen for us. We can’t thank her enough.

    I am so happy you got the beautiful day you deserved!!! It was incredible and I can't wait to see the pictures!!

  • From the very start, Eileen was a complete dynamo of a day-of coordinator. She virtually saved our wedding after our original coordinator bowed out at the last minute; Eileen stepped in just one month from the date of our celebration with a polished, personal professionalism that carried through our entire experience with her. Her warm, easy-going manner is matched only by her measured, no-nonsense expertise in her craft. She was communicative, clear, calm, and beyond competent in all dimensions of her planning, support, and execution of our wedding, and she is due an enormous amount of credit for bringing our vision for our unique event (--many moving parts in an unconventional venue) into glorious reality. Truly, working with Eileen gave us and all of our vendors such peace of mind; my husband and I cannot recommend her more enthusiastically!

    What a magical day it was! You and Jared are truly two of the kindest people, unmatched by your incredibly sweet supportive families. It was a joy to be a part of your day! Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness!

  • Eileen was truly amazing. I plan events for a living, so when I got engaged Feb '18, the absolute last thing I thought I needed was a Day of Coordinator - if I can't handle that, who can? Our friends who had gotten married about 4 months before us told us the number 1 thing they would recommend was a DOC - so I got to thinking, and researching. I spoke to probably 15 coordinators before Eileen, and after speaking with her I knew my hunt was over. She put me completely at ease, I immediately felt better after speaking with her, and at exactly the price I felt comfortable with. Fate! The weeks leading up, Eileen was great - confirming all vendors, even assisting me when 2 days before the wedding I found out my DJ got in a car accident and couldn't work our wedding. Come the day of and everything was taken care of. I'm a worrier by nature and I didn't worry about a single thing with Eileen around. She kept us all on schedule, handled vendor arrivals and needs, and I'm sure much more I don... Read more

  • Eileen is an amazing wedding planner! We decided to plan a wedding at the Maplewood Country Club in two months and realized we needed help. We had a beautiful wedding and could not have done it without Eileen’s help! She made me feel instantly calm once we hired her and helped us stay on track, called vendors for us, met with us about the special touches, was available by email, text, phone when we needed, and put together the extensive timeline of the day. On the actual wedding she was behind the scenes attending to details or minor adjustments leaving our loved ones free just to enjoy the party. I told her I felt sad to finally say goodbye to her since she felt like an angel supporting us through this quick wedding planning period. We could not be happier with how our wedding turned our. Do hire Eileen!

    I was sad to say goodbye to your beautiful family as well! I'm so happy the day was everything you wanted and wish you both so much happiness in your future! Tell Jay I said hi!

  • Eileen helped me to truly enjoy my daughter's wedding which was held at my house. She was helpful in planning the event, asking the right questions, keeping the planning on track. In setting up the venue she followed my wishes and added her own touches which were appreciated. She accomplished a lot of set up in a short amount of time. She graciously did whatever needed to be done during the day to make the event a success and fun for the family and our guests. She worked well with our other vendors, the caterer and DJ. I feel really lucky to have found her on the internet.

She took care of so much, had great ideas and alleviated our load on the day of the wedding. We are grateful she was part of our team to make our special day even more special. Thank you!!

  • My husband and I had big ideas for our wedding reception and really loved the idea of working with a blank slate and building our event from the ground up. However we soon realized that we needed help! We wanted someone we trusted to execute our vision so we set out looking for a DOC and are so thankful to have met Eileen! We were blown away by her level of dedication and expertise to make our dream a reality. We had so many moving parts to make our outdoor tented wedding happen: from cueing a marching brass band to surprise our guests at the end of the ceremony, coordinating with multiple furniture vendors to get our reception tent and barn set up perfectly, to arranging our DIY fire pit s'mores station to getting the whole crowd lined up at the end of the night for a sparkler sendoff and surprise firework show. Eileen and her team worked fast and with smiles on their faces and always made me feel like I was being taken care of especially when some difficult family members started to ... Read more

  • I made the mistake of hiring Eileen based on these reviews here online and because she seemed to have a reasonable price. To keep it short she and her "team" are a disaster. I hired her to help my mother plan an engagement party in June 2019, and also to keep my stress level down. My mother and I ended up doing most of the work because Eileen has specific people and companies she recommends- anything outside of this you have to find on your own if you have a specific budget ( ie tent rental for 4k vs 2k or 3k) Day of the party she sends two assistants who she claimed were her "right hand" and what she thought were "completely capable". These two assistants, along with Eileen's absence ruined my engagement party. I could not have been more stressed out. They had no idea how to handle a semi-large scale party at a big property ( 150 people on a 2 acre property) I could not find them an hour into their arrival. They left no me no cell # or way of getting in touch with them- they themsel... Read more

    I am saddened that Ms. Gupta did not have the engagement party she envisioned. However, my incredible staff worked tirelessly to trouble shoot issues that were, in agreement with her father, completely of Ms. Gupta's own making. My design team and I met with Ms. Gupta and her mother and our recommendations for vendors and design were ignored and instead the ideas were used and switched for cheap substitutes and implemented by people that were not experienced enough to handle an event of this nature. As stated in my contract, I will always work within a budget and although you are more than welcome to use any vendor you choose, I cannot be faulted for their mistakes or failure to deliver if they ignore my timelines, do not communicate and perform in an unsatisfactory way. In order to manage an event effectively, we must have all details and vendors secured 21 days in advance, which was not supplied to us. Against my recommendations, instead of caterers, they hired a local restaurant who damaged Dr. Gupta's lawn in their set up. The DJ was a direct hire and took their money and jobbed out the event to a less experienced worker. Hair and makeup were contracted privately, details not shared with us and she was an hour and a half late despite confirming the correct time with me the day before the wedding! This left my staff scrambling to triage the inabilities of these vendors to salvage the event. In addition, although Ms. Gupta knew I would not be there the day of the party, I personally went the day before the event and set up all of the tables, chairs and full bar on my own. As my reviews can attest, I will always go above and beyond for my brides and grooms to give them a flawless wedding day, but in this instance my hands truly were tied by the choices of the bride and her mother and we did everything we could given the circumstances to make it right for them.
