  • Like many brides, while starting to plan our wedding I was not planning to hire any event coordinator at the start of wedding planning. However, about 7 months out from our big day I realized if we did not have professionals to help us, that there would likely be extra stress on my mom and myself the day of our wedding. I met with Soiree about 6 months from our wedding date and booked them immediately; and the Soiree team is worth EVERY PENNY! I wish I would have met with them earlier! We worked with Emily, Caitlyn and Haley and they are all amazing! We did the essentials package - we were able to meet with the team twice before the wedding and they pointed out many details that we had not thought about as well as helped us with our day of timeline. They also checked up on us throughout the months leading up to the wedding to see if we had any questions; communication was great! Caitlyn and Haley were with us all day on our wedding day and I seriously can't imagine our day going so smo... Read more

  • For the time of your life? choose a wedding planner pro like Caitlyn. You will have greater time with your guests and making more wonderful memories. Soiree dials in all the important details so you can celebrate and not worry or stress over details. Caitlyn has a schedule/timeline for all, so everyone stays on time and are where they should be during the day. She is right on top of all plans with a smile. You will not be let down with Soiree's Caitlyn.

  • I highly recommend Emily and her team at Soiree. When I was a little girl, I never pictured my wedding, I always pictured the perfect person to marry. So needless to say when I did find my other half, my person, (which up until that point I thought I was going to be a crazy dog lady since I am horribly allergic to cats), I needed some serious help. Due to certain circumstances my parents could not help me plan my wedding. I knew I wanted a wedding both of our families would love, that was well done, and also mixed two different cultures (I am from a very small town in Iowa and my husband is a first generation Mexican born and raised in Southern California/ LA.) I needed help. I couldn’t even pick out colors for my wedding without feeling incredibly overwhelmed. There are wedding traditions in Mexico my husband’s family wanted to incorporate. I did not have the slightest idea of how to go about buying these things let alone how to get the Catholic Church in this area to ok the use o... Read more

  • Oh my goodness. I have nothing but excellent things to say about Emily McMahon and the Soiree Team. I was so nervous about planning a wedding because I didn’t even know the first place to start. I needed advice and someone who would listen to me, be honest, and help create the ideas I had in my mind. I worked with Emily to create my vision. There aren’t enough words to express how fortunate I am to have had Emily throughout this process. She was amazing. I got engaged and started working with Emily before COVID started. Due to COVID, the world shut down in March and my wedding was in October. Throughout this time Emily helped both my mom and I with all of our uncertainties and questions, even if it was just listening to an emotional phone call from one of us. Everything she did was above and beyond. She helped contact vendors, answered all my questions day or night, was extremely prompt and literally helped organize every single part of my wedding day so it flowed perfectly. ... Read more

  • Caitlyn with Soiree was wonderful to work with! She was onsite from beginning to end of a very busy day and she was there to help with anything that the happy couple needed. Not only was she here throughout the whole day, but she also helped guide the couple through the final stages of the planning process to make sure they kept on track. I would highly recommend her services and look forward to the opportunity to work with her again in the future!

  • Emily is simply the best!! If you are planning a wedding in the Iowa area you absolutely need to book with Emily! There are too many reasons to list why she is so great, but I'll leave a few: 1.) She is a wedding planning expert. Regardless of how much or how little help you need, Emily will know exactly what she can do for you! She has countless relationships with wedding vendors across Iowa and she knows which vendors will match which couple perfectly. 2.) She is flexible! Almost 6 months after booking with her I decided I needed a little more help making our wedding come to life and she was on board as soon as I asked for extra help! I know our wedding day will be a dream because she will be there executing my vision. 3.) She is responsive and available. While I have absolutely zero idea how she does it, she responds so quickly with all of my questions. As a type A bride, I find this both impressive and essential! 4.) She takes the stress out of the wedding planning process! A... Read more

  • Matt and I are so grateful that we hired Soiree Wedding Planning to help with our big day. Shortly after we got engaged, we met with Emily and hired her to do weekend of coordination. After we moved out of state, we realized we needed more help and added on design. THEN a pandemic happened and Emily helped us figure out whether or not to move forward with our wedding and how to communicate our decision with our guests. THEN a derecho hit Iowa during the week of our wedding and we had to deal with our venue not having power until the day before our wedding. Needless to say, Emily not only kept us sane throughout the entire wedding planning process, she also was instrumental in helping coordinate our wedding week. Despite the derecho she was in touch with every single one of our vendors by our final meeting and helped us develop a plan to move forward with our wedding. She encouraged us (Nicole, specifically) on numerous occasions to just enjoy our wedding week and let her take care of t... Read more

  • As a vendor, I have had a chance to work with Emily and her staff on a few occasions and wow! I know heading into an event that is using Soirée that things will be smooth sailing. I have never met someone so on top of things! Emily has a sixth sense for potential hangups and is able to take care of it before it becomes a noticeable problem. She doesn't miss a thing! Emily and her staff are always upbeat and PROACTIVE. If you want peace of mind leading up to and the day of your wedding Soirée Wedding Planning is the way to go!

  • We worked with Emily for our December 2019 wedding, and let me just say WOW! She was brilliant throughout the entire process, but the final days were where she shined! I cannot imagine my wedding planning journey without her design ideas, support and guidance. If you want to work with a true professional, pick Emily and her crew at Soiree!

  • Emily is absolutely amazing, she was there for the planning process, helping make those hard decisions. Helping reach out to vendors-she helped keep the planning moving along. I could not have survived the day of my wedding without her and her intern Emma! They were prepared for everything, they got us where we needed to be, brought snacks and drinks when we couldn’t get away to grab them for ourselves. We didn’t have to worry about timing because they were handling it! You NEED Emily in your life!

  • I found Caitlyn to be accessible, professional and personable. I was delighted that the mother of the bride hired someone to be the point person for the day of the wedding. While I am unaware of the actual cost to the family, it seems to me to hand those details off to someone else so that family can enjoy the day was worth it.

  • We worked with Emily for almost 2 years and she was super flexible and understanding when we wanted to change our venue, which in turn moved our date up! The first time we sat down with Emily to discuss our vision she was so excited we wanted to add some Disney fairytale touches throughout our day and made sure we had those details in place. Emily created an amazing design plan early on that we always referred back to to make sure everything fit together perfectly. She was always available to meet either on weekends or over lucnh if we had things we wanted to go over last minute. Her expertise in the industry was key as she was able to recommend the vendors that would be able to make our vision from our design plan come to life! On the day of our wedding, Emily and Julia were there before we arrived and made sure that we were all drinking water and had something to eat. She also made sure that I walked around to make sure everything was setup to my liking before our vendors were done... Read more
