  • Elyse is calm under pressure, able to put fires out that you didn't even know existed and has an eye for decor and design that many dream of having. I am a local Wedding Planner and I have had her assist me several times. I know that when she is on my team, I do not have to worry about the tasks I assign her because she knows what to do and will get things done - which is what I need on wedding day! She has great rapport with other vendors, is personable and always has a smile on her face. She is an asset to any team and is a great wedding coordinator!

  • I am a wedding entertainment vendor so this review is from that perspective. I loved working Elyse. I can tell that she is going to be around for a while because she treats her vendors well. She was helpful, communicative, and I felt like she had my interest at heart. Thanks for taking care of me and my band!

  • It only lets me give 5 stars, but Elyse deserves 500,000!! If you're having a wedding, you NEED a good coordinator. If you're getting a coordinator, you NEED Elyse & her team. Best in the business. Total superstar in every area. Immune to stress. A true boss lady who will put out fires before they begin. Funny, fun, friendly -- you couldn't ask for better. Whatever she charges, her services are worth 10x. She is PEACE OF MIND when you need it most. Best wedding decision we made (other than, ya know, the whole marriage thing). We're considering getting married AGAIN just so I have an excuse to work with Elyse more!! Also, follow her on social... Insta game strong

  • I did not think I needed a wedding coordinator because I am extremely ocd, well-organized (spreadsheet queen) and have worked in the wedding industry myself. Hiring Elyse to coordinate our wedding was the best decision we made. Everything was flawless from the month-long communication about contracts, insurance and vendor payments, to the rehearsal music timing run-through and day-of wedding timeline. Elyse and her staff were friendly, professional, and made the day stress-free for me (the bride) which is not easy to do for someone with my type A personality. There were so many little details I hadn't even thought about that Elyse made sure were taken care of. My mom, family members and bridal party were able to enjoy the day and be present for each moment because Elyse and her team were busy making every detail perfect! I cannot recommend her enough!

    Aww thank you so much for your sweet review, Ashley!!! That means so much and I really appreciate it. I'm so glad your wedding was as flawless as you wanted it to be! I loved working with you and Scott! Give Blue a hug for me!

  • My wife and I were referred to Elyse by one of our close friends and we are so grateful for her!! Elyse went above and beyond being proactive and responsive. We used the Knot.com wedding planning book and website, with Elyse taking over for the month of, and day of, our wedding. She is professional and organized while being flexible with the various nuances that I’m sure are a part of most weddings. For context, our wedding had about 150 people, about 10 vendors, and yes, family politics. :) I very rarely do reviews but I can confidently say, please do yourself a favor and give her a call! Mark

    Thank you so much, Mark! I really appreciate your kind words. It was such a pleasure working with you and Shielu, and I wish you both a lifetime of happiness!

  • The best decision I’ve ever made was marrying my husband. The second was hiring Elyse as our wedding planner. She handled all of our concerns/thoughts/feelings/anxieties in a timely, friendly, efficient and professional manner. She also became a friendly voice to talk ideas over with. Knowing we had her on our team helped alleviate a ton of anxiety. She was incredible at navigating both me and my husband’s personalities (and we have...um... big ones). Our venue was errrr.... difficult and I think I’d be laying in a ditch somewhere in my wedding dress right now instead of cuddling up with my hubby if it hadn’t been for Elyse’s help. She truly went above and beyond. I’m already thinking of all the other events I want to plan just so I can work with her again!

    Thank you so much, Hayley! I loved working with you and Sam so much. Your wedding was incredibly special and I am so honored you chose me to be part of it! #lucyandboboforever

  • I was impressed with Elyse's enthusiasm and work ethic from the get go. She took time out of her vacation to make the initial call to see if she was the right fit for us. We planned a CA wedding all the way from KY and Elyse was ON TOP of everything from day one. She constantly had a positive attitude (even when I didn't) and regularly rolled with the punches when we ran into road blocks with vendors and family. She was conscientious of our budget and of any concerns I may have had about stuff. Our wedding was perfect, more "us" than I ever could have hoped and Elyse was such a shining light throughout. I highly recommend Elyse! I hope she is in my life forever so I can watch her continue to grow her business and help give other couples their dream weddings in SLO and beyond!

    Thank you so much, Holly!!! I LOVED your wedding - it was so fun and so uniquely you & Daniel. May the force be with you two forever! #DontStopBlevin

  • Elyse did an amazing job at our wedding. We hired her very close to the wedding and she went straight into action to make our wedding perfect. She coordinated with all our vendors to make sure everything was perfect for us. She made sure to keep the event schedule on time and would constantly check in with us if we need anything. I would recommend her in a heart beat for any wedding my friends would have.

    Thank you so much, Andy! I loved working with you and Renee to make your day perfect. All the best to you both! :)

  • We loved Elyse! We worked with Elyse through SeaVenture Hotel and Restaurant for our wedding in 2018. She was fabulous and took all the stress off me as a bride, especially since we lived so far away and having a little one to care for. She was able to schedule calls around our schedule and was very responsive when I had even the silliest of questions. We had only met her once before our wedding while we were in town for a quick visit and picked up linen samples, but all our detailing planning had to be done over the phone and she did amazing getting just what I had envisioned. The day of she made everything so seamless and if there was a hiccup we never knew it. She even had all our decorations packed up and in our room at the end of the day ready and waiting for us so we never had to worry about them. She for sure goes above and beyond to make your day one to remember and I hope that she will still be event planning when we have our 25th anniversary because I know we would fo... Read more

  • Elyse is simply the BEST! From the very beginning when I simply inquired, to the last dance of the night, Elyse made our day the BEST EVER!!! It is clear that she loves what she does. She was quick to reply and help every time we needed her. Her professionalism and enthusiasm made the whole process a joy. I never felt stressed because I knew she was organized and prepared. Love love love her!!!!

  • I can safely say Elyse helped to make my day the BEST EVER! Here is how: *She alleviates any stress - she's KNOWS it's YOUR day so she ensures you have nothing to stress or worry about (she has this 'its all good everything is perfect' vibe with a huge smile that just completely relaxes you) * She truly cares. You will feel like you're her number one priority * She handles it ALL and is there ALWAYS with a smile. If anything did go wrong - I didn't know about it. And everytime I needed her she was magically there (seriously, how did you do it?!) *She puts in extra care - we had a very delicate kettubah (Jewish marriage contract) and before I could even worry I heard that Elyse had wrapped it up exactly as it came and it was already in the room. This was absolutely above and beyond. * Extra care continued - she even put on my flower crown because my hair person had to run out for a moment. Her attitude was of course absolutely amazing 'everything is perfect and whatever you nee... Read more

  • Elyse planned our wedding on 6/16/18 through the SeaVenture, and she made sure that everything was perfect! She flawlessly handled and managed everything, and answered questions, questions, and more questions, with absolute grace and a smile. We're so thankful to have had her every step of the way and everything turned out wonderfully because of her! We highly recommend Elyse and her services and cannot speak any more highly of her, she's amazing! I have no idea how we would have managed without her! Thank you so much, Elyse!
