  • Our wedding day would not have been possible without Emily. She was with us from beginning to end and made what could have been a very stressful process easy and fun. We had an absolutely gorgeous day and no detail was overlooked - there were so many little touches and ideas that we would have never thought of if it was not for Emily and her creativity. It was amazing to watch her come up with things that were so uniquely "us" - she really took the time to understand what our style was, but was able to elevate that vision to something we didn't even know was possible. More than anything, she became a friend - working together for over a year I truly felt like I could ask her anything and absolutely trusted her, her style and her judgment. We remember getting the detailed schedule of the wedding week with all of the vendors and timing, and being in awe of the level of coordination and detail involved - it drove home that this magical day would not have been possible without Emily.

  • Emily was such a joy to work with. There is no way our wedding would have been the unforgettable day it was without her involvement. She is a total gem--fun, organized, thoughtful, kind, and totally on top of her game. She helps make your vision a reality: she always had ideas, and she was a valuable thought partner for me to bounce my own off of. All of the aesthetic decisions we made were so fun; I talked about the vibe of our wedding being "fancier backyard dinner party" and she pulled the details together in such a gorgeous way-- from the beautiful tables to the candlesticks (which she sourced and were AMAZING) to the font on our table cards, no piece was too small to give some thought to. And, whenever I got decision fatigue, or started second-guessing things, she was always there with some thoughtful ideas or advice on what we might do next. In the midst of all of this, she also helped us plan for and stay on budget, which was critical. If something was going to be cost prohi... Read more

  • Emily did a remarkable job of getting to know us and helping us to get clear about how we wanted to celebrate our day. From there, the process was seamless, fun and incredibly relaxed - Emily’s expertise was apparent throughout and her steady, calm energy never failed. She managed more details than I ever knew and pulled me in when needed in a way that never created stress or worry. She felt like a dear friend with crazy good organizational skills!

  • Emily helped me plan a surprise destination 40th anniversary party for my parents. From beginning to end, Emily was easy to work with, extremely knowledgeable and always reliable. I wasn't able to be present for any decision making at all since I live in the midwest, and everything turned out perfectly. Emily's vision and hard work helped create a magical evening we'll never forget. Thank you, Emily!

  • After speaking with Emily for the first time I knew she was exactly what I needed to plan my dream wedding. She is very organized, responsive to emails, and knew all of the vendors to work with. As someone with a busy job and lifestyle I knew I needed someone who could be truly dedicated to making sure my day went off without a hitch, and that's just what Emily did! There were plenty of details that went into the day, and vendors to be worked with (my wedding was tented and outside), and everything went perfectly. Emily knew the vendors from Maine to work with, which was very convenient and helpful as I live in Boston. Emily and I exchanged emails multiple times daily, and she created an organized online portal where we could view our To Do List and various items listed out as High, Medium, or Low priority. Truly a pleasure to work with and I already miss her because she is such a friendly and great person overall. The photos from our day speak volumes but it was the most perfect day ... Read more

  • Emily planned our daughter's Maine wedding and it was perfect. The bride and groom live in Southern California and we live in Pittsburgh, so we had to trust Emily with almost everything. Plus, Hannah and Tim wanted an outdoor wedding with a tent for dinner and barn for cocktails and dancing. We had two other daughters married in the past few years, so we understood the number of important decisions that needed to be made. EVERYTHING was exquisite!! The whole event was magical.

  • I found Emily through a Google search, along with several other potential wedding coordinators. We scheduled a phone interview, and I was immediately impressed with her professionalism and her immediate grasp of the feel I wanted for my wedding, as well as the challenges and willingness to work within my budget - so hiring her was a no-brainer. And I am SO glad that I did. She helped me get set up with the tools I needed to stay organized throughout the process. She gave me all kinds of assistance with every step along the way, from recommending local vendors (which was very important to me, as I'm fairly new to the area), to helping me select all of the details that would come together to make the big day exactly what I had in my mind - and even going so far as to gently steer me in a different direction when I (very infrequently, thank goodness!) got off track a bit (mostly wanting to overdo it). Although I've attended quite a few weddings, I'd never hosted my own wedding befor... Read more

  • I would highly recommend the services of Emily Elizabeth Events. Her planning and execution of our rehearsal dinner lobster bake for 125 guests was impeccable. Her organizational skills and creativity resulted in an event that our guests thoroughly enjoyed. She managed the on site vendors prior to and during the event with a high level of professionalism and anticipated and modified plans as needed. We will definitely utilize her services in the future if she is available!

  • After we decided to host our wedding in southern Maine, I started looking for planners. Emily Elizabeth Events’ website was full of gushing reviews and a portfolio of events that were absolutely breathtaking. During our first phone call, I found Emily to be easy to talk to, unquestionably professional, and shared my vision for our wedding. Over the course of 14 months, we were in weekly contact with each other. She laid out a timeline and kept me on tract, organized a running ledger based on my budget, and would help me select vendors from the area. She was ALWAYS available and extremely organized. She built me an A-team out of the local industries best. The day before my event, she was with me all day organizing, and then she was there early setting up the ceremony the day of. Her end-product was stunning. During the wedding day, I kept hearing that my wedding was the most beautiful and most unique wedding any of my guests had ever attended. This is precisely why I chose EEE. Her t... Read more

  • I simply cannot say enough amazing things about Emily! Emily was our planner for a destination wedding in Kennebunkport for about 100 guests. Right from the start I was at ease and confident that Emily understood exactly what my husband and I envisioned for our dream wedding. She possesses all the qualities you would want in a planning partner - extremely patient, professional, passionate, a careful listener, and detail oriented. She often exchanged multiple emails a day with me and our vendors, to get the details just right. Based on how much time and energy she put into my wedding, you would think it was the only wedding she was planning! I had complete confidence in her eye for aesthetics and design, deferring many decisions to her in the end. She also is a master of all things logistics. I cannot remember a time throughout this process where I ever was stressed that we did not have everything in place at the right time or that the day of would not go off as planned. In the end, as...

  • If you are getting married in Maine, you should absolutely have Emily Elizabeth Events plan it. We planned our wedding from Michigan. We wanted to get married in Maine but had zero vision and no venue. Emily found the perfect venue and helped us create an actual plan. I was a tad worried because our wedding was slightly unconventional, but Emily just ran with it and made it beautiful! I couldn't have been happier! I got a response within 24 hours of sending any questions to Emily. She did day-of coordination as well. The wedding day itself was stress free and perfect. Everyone warned me about how stressful wedding planning and weddings can be, but we had no trouble or stress at all. And Emily is the reason for it! It was such a beautiful, perfect way to plan and an awesome day for us. I can't gush enough about how grateful we are to Emily. Highly recommended!!!!

  • Emily is fantastic. We came to her with quite a challenge: less than three months to put together an ecclectic wedding/juggling party in the middle of winter in Maine. Thanks to Emily, our wedding was a resounding success. True story: Emily taught herself advanced origami the night before the event, just so she could make last-minute adjustments to the table decorations. She must have deployed other superpowers quietly in the background without us ever knowing, because we didn't have a single stressful moment on the big day! We were in constant communication with Emily in the weeks leading up to the wedding, and her clear correspondence and ability to keep everything organized were commendable. She did a great job providing creative suggestions when we asked for help, and also took our wacky suggestions and ran with them. And boy, does she know some fabulous vendors! Our guests keep telling us they've never eaten so well. We highly recommend Emily Elizabeth Events if you're ha... Read more

  • Emily is incredible. Our wedding was truly magical and I wouldn’t have been able to create such an amazing evening without her. Throughout the planning process, Emily was a sounding board, idea generator, mediator, and most importantly, an incredible listener. Because of this, I was completely confident that she understood exactly what my husband and I envisioned for our wedding. Her skills managing vendor relationships, organizing timelines, and making sure each detail was just right were apparent in the fluidity of the evening and the interconnectedness of all the moving parts. Her grace and poise belied the incredible amount of work and orchestration I know was involved. Our guests thought it was “the best wedding ever” and obviously I’m biased, but I have to agree! It would not have been possible without Emily and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a thoughtful, organized, creative event planner.

  • I have had the pleasure of working with Emily of Emily Elizabeth Events for the past two years, as Emily helped us plan every aspect (big and small!) of our "lobster shack chic" wedding weekend in Maine. Emily is a rare combination of creative/artistic talent and organizational skills, which makes her uniquely suited as an event coordinator. Emily's artistic eye and personal touch came through in everything she arranged for us, and she went above and beyond in every aspect of our wedding planning and day-of coordination. Every vendor we worked with, as well as many of our guests, raved about her ability to plan and coordinate lots of moving parts while remaining calm and positive. We couldn't have had the beautiful, stress-free wedding weekend we had without Emily taking care of every last detail, and we enthusiastically recommend Emily Elizabeth Events to anyone seeking a talented, highly organized, and all-around excellent event planner.
