  • When I started planning my wedding I had no idea what was involved. I considered myself a pretty simple bride and only had the vaguest idea of what I wanted my wedding to be like. From the moment I first contacted Heather by email to our first meeting and all the emails and meetings in between, I knew I was in great hands. She was the first coordinator I met with but not the last, but none felt as comfortable and connected to us as Heather did. She answered every question I had throughout the process, and made me aware of a bunch of details I would never have thought of. When I had vague ideas of something I thought I wanted it was Heather that knew how to make it happen. And every other vendor I worked with would have the same response when they asked who my coordinator was: "Oh, Heather! We love working with Heather!". I knew that with Heather looking out for me my wedding would be all that I could hope it would be. And as it turned out, it was even better than my dreams. I was compl... Read more

  • Heather is very easy to get along with; she is bright, outgoing, responsive, and organized. We just booked her and are excited to work with her. She has been very helpful already and I am excited to have her support on our special day. Will post another review after the wedding! :-)

  • My fiancé and I saw Heather for pre marital counseling and have already recommended her to all our friends. She was welcoming and worked with our busy schedules. The activities that we did really prepared us for the next steps. She’s awesome!!

  • Heather helped make our wedding day run seamlessly. She took care of everything so that we could have the best night ever. Everything at our wedding was perfect and if anything wasn't I still have no clue about what it was! Five stars!

  • I honestly don’t know how I would have gotten through this day without her! Even before our wedding, she was so helpful and gave so many good suggestions - things that I would never have thought of. It’s obvious that she has a lot of experience and is passionate about what she’s doing. She went above and beyond what was expected of her - and so many of our attendees commented on all that she did during the ceremony/reception. She truly was wonderful and I would recommend her to anyone who asks.

  • Hiring Paisley and Pearl Events for month-of-coordination services was easily the best wedding planning decision I made! They made the days leading up to my wedding so much easier by taking over as my point of contact for vendors and creating a very detailed timeline of events. On the day of, everything ran so smoothly. I didn't have to worry about a thing. I had the pleasure of working with Heather (the owner), Caitlin, and Kelly. They are all very sweet, positive, and professional. They made themselves readily available for all my questions via email and text. I worked with Caitlin and Kelly on the day-of, and their constant smiles were so reassuring on such an emotional day. I can't thank them enough for all of their hard work!

  • We could not have been happier or more grateful we went with Paisley and Pearl for our spring 2019 wedding. I like to plan everything and am a perfectionist in general so to hand over such an important day to someone else was difficult to say the least. Heather was there for me every step of the way to bounce ideas off of and her insight was invaluable. She kept me calm during the final stretch and was extremely attentive. Some of my vendors were less so, which I'm sure made her job more difficult, but she handled every situation with professionalism and understanding. Our day of coordinator, Ebony, was equally as amazing. She kept us on schedule without making us feel rushed. If anything arose during the wedding we were none the wiser because she had it under control. Thank-you so much to the Paisley and Pearl team for helping us pull off what many of our friends have called the best wedding they've ever been to. We couldn't have done it without you!

  • We hired Heather for month-of coordinator. We met her for coffee and were impressed by her thoroughness and positive energy. In the month leading up to the wedding, Heather took over vendor communication and created a day-of timeline and other planning documents that made our lives easier. We met with Heather a few times that month and came away from each meeting feeling better prepared and excited for the wedding -- she thought of things we'd neglected, and her suggestions were always spot on. On the day before the wedding, Heather drove an hour out of her way to our family gathering to meet our families, pick up decorations, and lead a rehearsal in the bonus room. On our wedding day, she was one of the first people at the venue helping to set up and ensuring everything was on schedule. She did a great job of gently herding our families and guests. At the end of the night, we felt like everything had gone perfectly, we wouldn't have changed anything, and that we couldn't have pulled ... Read more

  • Having a small intimate wedding we were reluctant to hire a day of coordinator. After my first meeting with Heather I knew it was something we needed, and that she was the person to help make our day beautiful. I felt comfortable and trusted her since our first meeting. She was very flexible, and accommodating to all our needs and challenges. We would recommend Paisley and Pearl Events, and enjoyed working with Heather.

    Hey Lindsey! I am so thankful you included me in your intimate beach wedding day! I loved getting to know you and your family in the month leading up to the wedding! All of you are some of the sweetest people I know! It was fun to think of a design that turned your friend's modern beach house into a cozy and industrial inspired wedding venue. To see you and Dru surrounded by all of the people who love you most was a wonderful experience. Enjoy your honeymoon in Argentina!

  • Heather is the best! From our very first time meeting with her, we knew she would be our best wedding investment! Heather has a heart of gold and will work hard to make your wedding day perfect. She is quick to answer questions, offer support, and lend a hand. Heather took over all of our planning and scheduling a month before our wedding and it was the best thing ever! We did not have to worry about emails or scheduling, and we knew everything was in great hands. Our wedding day was a magical day thanks to Heather and her amazing team! They handled everything flawlessly while we enjoyed the day with our friends and family. We are extremely grateful for Paisley and Pearl for helping to make our wedding day amazing!

    Caitlin, this post is not long enough to write all of the wonderful things about you so I will keep it shortish! I have loved getting to know you and Forrest over the past year and a half. You have a huge heart and write the best thank you notes! Any time I check the mailbox and see your handwriting I get excited because I know what is inside is going to make me smile, and sometimes cry. Thank you for booking us a year and a half out and being such a planner, because that meant we had an extended amount of time to get to know one another. Your wedding was filled with love from every inch of the room and your band rocked it! Thanks for letting us be a part of it!

  • My initial meeting with Heather was supposed to be 30 minutes and 1.5 hours later I knew she wouldn't just be my wedding planner but my new friend. Having Heather already worked with so many of vendors was priceless. I was not the most "bridey" I would have been happy eloping but Heather helped keep me focused and was there when I would ask "Am I over reacting or is this normal". Heather's staff were great to work with as well, during rehearsal trying to wrangle all the flower girls was literally god's work. They made the month of planning so seamless. I trusted Heather completely and even sent her on two appointments to make decisions for me. I have already recommend her to some of my engaged friends.

  • Heather was absolutely incredible!!! She is so personable and gains your trust to fulfill your dream wedding from the first time you meet her! Anytime I was stressed or worried, Heather was already on the ball finding a solution. Highly recommend for any event!!

    Hey Cassidy! Your wedding was one of my favorites and mostly because of you! You have a heart of gold and a smile to match! Though the day was stressful at times and you wanted to cry (and maybe did a little!) you made me feel like the best wedding planner by being receptive to my calming words and trusting me. If something came up you trusted me to handle the situation and many times I was working on it even before you knew! Other times you let me bust out my counseling skills to help you relax. I couldn't have asked for a better bride! My favorite part of the day was your first dance with Will and the love that each of you had in your eyes, especially in Will's as you sang and made up your own dance moves!

  • Heather was one of the BEST investments we could have made for our wedding day!! She was so easy to work with and made me feel so comfortable from the moment I met her about a year before my wedding. She went above and beyond to check in with me during the weeks leading up to the wedding, finalized all vendor specifics for me, and laughed with me as we changed my linen rental needs no fewer than 5 times the week before the wedding (it had become so comical at that point)! We also hired her to do the flowers and I couldn’t have been happier with the result. EVERYONE has complimented how beautiful the flowers were, and it’s all thanks to Heather...who did them in addition to my month-of coordinating! Hiring a wedding planner is one of the best pieces of advice I would give future brides, but specifically, working with Paisley and Pearl was a dream. Heather helped navigate family dynamics, strong (unexpected) opinions, last-minute changes, and a million other things...all while givi... Read more

    Hey Alyssa!! Thank you so much for allowing us to be a big part of you and Britt's day! I couldn't have asked for a more easy going and beautiful spirited bride during the humid days of August! My favorite part of the day was getting to hear your story through the heartfelt speeches! I throughly enjoyed every single one of our coffee meetings and text message conversations. I can't wait to plan another wedding that you are a part of. Thanks for all of the referrals so far!

  • Sadly, our experience was nothing like reviews we read. Heather B. and her Paisley and Pearl Events failed us in her role as ”month-out coordinator”. The first problem was when Heather emailed all our vendors a time line of when they were to arrive at our venue on day of wedding, a list that ignored times my daughter had emailed Heather, times we already arranged with vendors. Why would you ask a DJ to arrive at the venue 5 hours prior to their contracted time? We had to double back to let (our wonderful!) DJ, to say that was NOT our intention (i.e. to ensure he did not think we were asking for double his time we contracted for). When I confronted Heather about this, she ridiculed my concern, saying “don’t worry” – she had “experience with this”. Providing inaccurate information was a huge worry for me. And it wasn’t just my concerns about Heather - our wonderful venue’s event director told me after the wedding, that he was frustrated with Heather’s “lack... Read more

    Hi Stephanie! I’m sorry you felt this way and that your expectations did not reflect the contract your daughter signed. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Melanie and working with her throughout the month before! Our goal is to take over as much of the vendor communication during the month before and make sure the day goes as smoothly as possible. The wedding ran smoothly and I think was a very sweet and love filled day! We always ask that our couples reach out to us if there are concerns after the wedding. If Melanie would like to do so I would more than happy to talk. For future couples that may see this review and be confused after reading our other 20+ 5 star reviews, please don't hesitate to reach out as we are always happy to address questions and concerns.
