  • I cannot recommend Riley and her team enough!!! I got married at a hotel that offered a coordinator and was going back and forth on whether to hire a wedding planner or not because I had booked most of the main vendors myself and am pretty organized but I am SO glad that I did. If this situation sounds anything like yours I'm here to tell you - BOOK THE COORDINATOR! Riley was so helpful with recommendations, coordinating the schedule and just giving advice on everything I wasn't sure about. She made the planning process so fun and stress-free! Riley was out of town on our wedding day so she sent McKenzie and Kadey who were absolute ANGELS! They set everything up, tore everything down, wrangled rowdy groomsmen, escorted out wedding crashers (multiple times) and kept the day running so smoothly. My mom and MOH were able to enjoy the getting-ready process and didn't feel responsible for making sure everything was in order. I couldn't have asked for a better team and will be forever th...

  • The team at Elegant Affairs by Design are the absolute best. Riley and her team really know what they are doing. She not only helped me plan my entire wedding she also became a friend. She was always available and got things done fast. I only thought I could have imagined what all goes into planning a wedding but man was I wrong, and Riley knew it all and more. She has an amazing network of vendors that she recommended and helped me secure. I had the dream team of vendors and it was all thanks to Riley. I could go on and on about Elegant Affairs by Design but I recommend if you’re planning a wedding hire Riley and I promise you will not regret it!

  • Riley was the best wedding planner we could have asked for! She was always so nice, friendly, and professional with us and all of our family and guests. Riley was always available to answer any questions or advice we needed during our wedding planning process and helped guide us and remind us of things that we wouldn't have known about on our own. She was very generous with her time and patient with us with any questions and concerns we had. We don't think our wedding could have gone anything close to the way it did without her! Thank you so much Riley and we very highly recommend her to everyone as your Wedding Planner!!

  • Riley is seriously the best! She was so responsive and helpful about my smallest questions. She problem solved on our big day so well that we didn’t even know there was a problem! We got so many compliments about how helpful and professional she was. She took on the stress of every detail of our day so we didn’t have to- and it was perfect! She even stopped by while we were getting ready to drop of a gift and see if there was anything we needed! Would definitely recommend Riley to anyone! :)

  • Elegant Affairs by Design is truly that, they designed the most elegant and romantic affair that I could have ever imagined. Riley went above-and-beyond in every aspect and is the most patient, kind, smart, and fun professional and friend. Riley planned our wedding among a pandemic and kept us calm through the entire process, even when we separated from our original venue less than 30 days until the event and a week later when the catered backed out, and especially as we were planning thousands of miles away. The key to great relationships is communication and Riley was not only proactive in her approach and communication, but never let questions linger. Walking into our wedding was magic! The team put together our vision and more! I recommend Elegant Affairs by Design for every event and wouldn’t plan another event without them.

  • She is amazing! I can not rave enough about what a wonderful job Riley did! She was extremely professional, and actually listens to what you want as a bride. She took what I wanted and made it better than I could have imaginged. Riley takes the time to process what your vision is and then uses her professional expertise to make it happen. She was great to work with, always responsive no matter how many questions I had. As far as pricing goes her services are very reasonably priced for what you are getting. Wedding/Event planners can be extremely pricey and that wasnt the case with Riley. You get exactly what you pay for and more. She is a wonderful person to work with, and will make sure that you are taken care of and stress free.

  • Riley went absolutely above and beyond to make our wedding day more than we could have ever expected. Planning a wedding during a pandemic is definitely not the easiest of tasks but with the help of Riley, she made it such a breeze. On my wedding day, I had every detail from big to small in place and went into the day with no stress. Let me talk about the ceremony and reception.... they were beyond perfect. Riley made my vision and dreams for my wedding a reality. She knew how important some details were to me and made sure to have everything in place. The whole reception flowed so well, from the entrances to our sparkler exit. If getting married were a routine thing, Riley would 100% be my go-to gal. On top of being our wedding planner, Riley has become a friend. I can't say enough great things about her. Just trust this review because I promise you, you won't be disappointed!

  • Riley and her team did an amazing job as our wedding coordinator. We are so happy we went with her. She took care of any issues we had and communicated with everyone so we didn’t have to worry about anything but having a great time on our wedding. By far the best purchase we made for our wedding.
