  • What can we say because 'Thank You' does not begin to cover it. You girls did such an outstanding job..... In every aspect! As we look over our pictures we really appreciate everything you put into the weekend not only making everything beautiful but really capturing our vision. Thank you so much for keeping us on track, dealing with issues (we are sure there are still some we don't know about) and just talking the pressure off of us so we could truly enjoy our once in a lifetime experience. You girls are truly Amazing! THANK YOU!!

  • If you are looking for a wedding planner, look no further! Elika is the best of the best and from start to finish made our wedding everything we imagined it to be and more! We are a same sex couple and was a little nervous finding someone who would be understanding and accommodating to a non traditional wedding with a lot of unique requests. We hired Elika for our weekend wedding at Trout Lake. When we met with Elika for the first time we knew she was the wedding planner for us. She has a warmth about her, and strong understanding and vision as far as wedding planning goes. She was able to provide us with direction and kept us on track providing us with a timeline of when things needed to be accomplished leading up to our big day. Elika created centerpieces, and other decorations that were accommodating to our style and vision for our decor. She found a reliable and affordable scooter service that my mother was able to use to get around the campground the weekend of our wedding... Read more

  • As a non-traditional bride who was completely open to the expertise of my wedding planner, my experience was unique. Elika knew my style and personalty; she decorated my ceremony setting and reception more beautifully than I could have imagined. Every look around the venue filled my heart with so much joy. Elika was a key element in creating my picture-perfect wedding!

  • Elika was the wedding planner for my wedding last month. With barely any planning done on my own, I contacted her 2 months before my wedding day! She helped me make my wedding very beautiful and successful. The wedding was elegant, exactly how I envisioned it would be. She kept me on the right track with planning and prioritizing. Her team also kept me stress free on my wedding day! Elika was very understanding and patient with me. She also reviewed contracts, communicated and organized all the vendors and made sure the venue was taking care of things on their end. I will use her services again in the future. I would highly recommend her to my sisters (I have 4 of them) when they are getting married and my friends!

    Dear Kimberly and Christian, Thank you so much for this wonderful review of our services. We (Dana, Kate and I) truly enjoyed planning with you. I just saw some of the pictures from your wedding and they are so beautiful. Wish I could have been there to see you walk down the aisle. I am so glad my team was able to assist you on the day of your wedding. I couldn't have done it without them. I absolutely love your family...so down to earth and genuine. I was told they were having a great time on the dance floor...that's always a good sign. Can't wait to help your sisters plan their wedding as well. We are very much looking forward to it. Big hug for you, Christian and little Daniel, Elika

  • It took me a long time to finally decide to hire a wedding planner. I was worried about spending the extra money, but about 3 months before the wedding I came to my senses, and I couldn't be happier that I did. Elika was absolutely amazing to work with and I can't recommend her highly enough (also, I'm sure she ended up paying for herself after everything she saved us!) We had our wedding on a very remote family property, and not only did Elika stick with us once she saw what she was getting herself into, she went above and beyond in every way. For example, there are no big hotels around our property, so our guests were spread out in rental cabins and little B&Bs all over the area. I was really worried about people getting home safely, with no central location to carpool to our bus company to charter. Without us even asking, Elika offered to rent a van and shuttle people to and from the venue. Her amazing intern, Dana, showed up with the cutest chauffeur's hat (customized to our wed... Read more

  • I am so happy and thankful that we hired Elika for our day of coordination. She responded VERY quickly to all my emails. She is very professional and she is amazing at what she does. She pulled through big on my big day. The venue had some pretty big mess ups but Elika was right there helping fix them. She is very creative and helped with an amazing seating chart table and design. She helped me find a florist and those flowers turned out beautiful. I can’t rave enough on how amazing Elika is. She is a must hire.

  • Elika was a fantastic day of coordinator for our complicated event. We hired Elika two months before our wedding. Our event had 60 guests attending a series of events over a weekend: Friday night-cocktail party with band, bonfire, afterparty, Saturday- glassblowing, yoga, skeet shooting, hayride, ceremony and formal reception with live entertainment, afterparty, Sunday brunch. Elika was a great help in the weeks leading up to the wedding. We had a weekly conference call to discuss various details of the event. She developed her own very in depth schedule and brought up several details that we had overlooked. When my hair trial went poorly, she helped me to find a different salon to complete the specialized vintage hair style I wanted. She worked closely with the wedding coordinator at the venue to clearly outline each of their responsibilities and make sure that every detail was exactly how we wanted it. She coordinated all the arrival times for the offsite vendors. She shopp... Read more

    Dear Victoria, Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this amazing review of my services. I truly enjoyed panning your fun filled weekend activities surrounding your wedding. You and Paul were such a pleasure to work with. Kate and I had so much fun and your guests were just lovely. We got to know so many of them and didn't want the weekend of fun wedding activities to end. I am so happy for you and Paul and would love for us to remain in touch. We wish you a happy and wonderful life together. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your wedding day. Warmly, Elika

  • My husband and I hired Elika when we realized that we made some fundamental mistakes in the wedding planning process. Elika immediately got to work fixing our wedding and creating an event even better than we imagined! She worked around our schedule and was consistently available to talk, text and email. Elika is extremely professional and organized. She has many connections with other quality wedding vendors which we took advantage of. Elika tracked our payments to our vendors and reminded us when payments were due. She made the entire wedding process stress free for my husband and I. Elika also worked very hard to make our ceremony joint jewish and catholic. She interviewed several Rabbis and narrowed it down to the top 3 and let us decide. After we found the officiants Elika worked with them to create a custom ceremony program. She put a lot of time and effort into the ceremony and it really showed on our wedding day. Beside all of the hard work Elika put into our ... Read more

  • Elika Almeida couldn't have been a more fantastic wedding coordinator for us! My bride Myra and I decided not to use a professional venue setting in order to save money, but all the planning responsibilities were on us which added incredibly to our stress level. Once we hired Elika she began collaborating with us (my bride especially) to make sure we would have the most gorgeous wedding possible. I cannot tell you how many times I would hear Myra say, after another detail had been hashed out, "Elika's amazing." She took so much stress off Myra's plate during the whole process. Anytime a vendor needed to be contacted or a chore needed to be executed, she would happily accept anything that was asked of her. She was in Myra's corner when she needed it most in the days leading up to the wedding and we would not have been able to pull this off with such grace without her tireless efforts. I cannot recommend her more highly!

    Thank you Joseph! I was honored to have been a part of the planning process and truly enjoyed helping create your dream wedding. You and Myra such a lovely couple....I can see the love in your eyes when you looked at one another. It was special and so romantic. I wish you both a lifetime of happiness.

  • I originally had a different wedding planner. That went horribly wrong!! I called Elika in a panic for guidance and she is fantastic. She is not afraid to pick up the pieces and work with what I've got to deal with. She is very reassuring and very nice. Always available! I have communicated with her more in four days than I did in ten months with the first wedding planner!

    Hi Michelle, I loved working with you and Brett. I had an amazing time at your wedding and love that we had such a wonderful bond. The entire planning process with you was so much fun. I was honored to have been chosen to be part of your special day. I wish you and your beautiful family a lifetime of happiness.

  • Elika helped me make our engagement party a HUGE success while cutting cost. She gave me wonderful ideas and created amazing centerpieces with personalize wood etched names. She also used her creativity to make lanterns out of mason jars, a mojito stand to welcome guests, and a beautiful welcoming sign that was also wood burned! All my guests were amazed and thought it looked fabulous! Without Elika and her creativity we couldn't have done it.

  • There were so many times before our wedding that I said "I'm so glad we have Elika!". We hired her about a year before our wedding to act as a day of coordinator, but in practice that meant she began working with us closely about 2-3 months prior to our wedding to gather all of the information about our vendors and the schedule for that day. She was well organized and a great communicator. She ensured that all of our vendors knew exactly what to do and where to go and what to bring -- I didn't have to think once about any of those details. Best of all, she insisted on being the designated "point of contact" for our guests as well as our vendors, so we distributed her phone number and contact information to everyone in advance for last minute questions about dress code, directions, anything. I didn't look at my phone ONCE on my wedding day and I knew that everything was taken care of - that is a great feeling. I think that Elika also went above and beyond in helping us to work toget...

  • We brought Elika on about two months before our wedding and her help proved invaluable. She was able to find secondary vendors for us and set up weekly phone meetings to keep us on track. She was on email and text with us nearly every day and helped to coordinate nearly every element. She also provided checklists and detailed itineraries for us. Our wedding was a weekend-long affair with events on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and Elika worked tirelessly on our behalf the whole week. The day of the wedding, I was able to enjoy getting ready and spending time with my bridesmaids knowing that she had everything under control. There were a few things that ended up differently than I expected, but she handled the last-minute decisions with grace that left my husband and I with so many great memories of our wedding.
