  • As far as design and flowers go... it exceeded every bit of my expectations. I got design quotes and floral quotes and the price by-far was the best in Virginia. Emily teared up in our first visit about her passion for providing "dream weddings" within the bride's budget but I had no idea how much she meant that. I literally gave her my Pinterest board and she brought it to life. The bouquets looked IDENTICAL to what I picked out but more beautiful. I wanted rustic car parts that she did not have and she went digging for them in her free time. Literally every touch she put in there I cried. She could charge double for what she did with my wedding. My husband was blown away with it all. He still can't stop talking about how wonderfully it was decorated. She met with us at the venue (1 hour away) to make sure everything was taken care of. Ashley was our month-of coordinator and when I say I did not stress I mean it. She thought of all the things I never would have considered, our Fac... Read more

It truly brings us so, so much joy to know that you not only loved the look of your wedding, but that you were able to actually sit back and enjoy it stress free. I speak for the entire TME family when I say you were an absolute joy to work with! The thoughtful, personalized touches throughout your wedding are ones we will always remember (including those awesome antique cars revving their congratulations for you and your new husband!). Congratulations again on your amazing day and the start of a new chapter for you and Cole :) We can't wait to be a part of your anniversary party and any other celebrations you have in the future!

  • We have no idea where to start to review The Main Event by Emily except to say they were EXCELLENT! Alanna Pine was our lead coordinator along with Megan Duckwitz Co-coordinator. We were lucky enough to get two trainees as well. Don’t let the young pretty face fool you! Alanna is congenial, professional, knowledgeable, and firm when needed. She created good working relationships with all of the vendors but was no nonsense when a vendor was not meeting our expectations as customers. They were happy to step in when additional hands were needed even if the task was outside their contractual duties. The coordinating team relieved me and my Mom of so much stress prior to the event and during the wedding. As a Bride, I felt very much taken care of. When the reception became a bit overwhelming, Alanna made sure to check on me when my introverted nature rose and I needed to step away. She bought me a drink and cupcakes while took a moment to catch my breath. Our only regret was not taking ad... Read more

  • Emily was so awesome to work with! She knew exactly how I wanted things right out of our first consultation, and on our wedding day, the decorations and the flowers and linens were just gorgeous!!! Would highly recommend Emily and her team!

  • The entire team was PHENOMENAL. Everyone was so amazing and easy to work with. The coordinating team stepped in when my bartender was late, fixed my dress (multiple times), and ensured everything went smoothly. They truly made my wedding a fantastic day! Would 100% recommend over and over!

  • Alanna and Megan were invaluable month-of coordinators. They anticipated many of our needs, including those that we hadn't considered. Their experience allowed our wedding to run smoothly. Friends, family, and vendors all commented on their professionalism and about the well run event. Emily's design exceeded our expectation and included many small details that only someone who cared deeply about her clients needs would have provided. Her inventory of decor items saved us money and allowed use to create the exact experience that we wanted for our wedding guests. Her knowledge of the floral industry provided a unique and beautiful look for our wedding. Based on our positive experience, we have already told several people that we know about the design and planning service available from The Main Event.

We wish you guys all the best, and hope to stay in touch! Thanks again for continuing to spread the word about the TME Family :)

  • Having real flowers for my wedding was really important to me. However, like a lot of brides out there...it is hard to imagine spending thousands of dollars on flowers. Emily was able to work with my budget and really help my vision come alive. Because of her, I was able to have gorgeous flower arrangements without the stress of DIY. I strongly suggest all couples to go visit her at The Main Event in Smithfield, VA. She also offers many other event services, has a cute shop to find gifts and other things, and a super friendly staff that greets/treats you like family.

  • Wonderful! Emily, Amber and Ashley were so great! Emily was recommended to me by a coworker and I met her at a bridal show and she was just lovely! I happened to be in Smithfield and stopped by (not knowing that she has a whole process for this) and she took me back to her office and walked me through her questionnaire and was very patient with me since I didn't have all the right answers yet. Her rates are AMAZING, I honestly couldn't believe them and she really helped make my dreams come true. Emily took care of the decor, flowers(including a stunning flower crown), linens, and coordination. She really is a one stop shop and shes great at what she does! I knew nothing about hosting a wedding or picking out decor or any of it and she guided me every step of the way and with the sweetest demeanor!

  • Emily and her team are FANTASTIC!! We hired them as our florist and decorator and it was the best decision! They made our venue look AMAZING with the amount of detail and design. The flowers were gorgeous! They went above and beyond of what was expected and then some! I couldn't be happier. They are so professional, sweet, kind, and a joy to work with! Go with Emily and her team! You won't regret it!!

  • I cannot say enough about Emily and her team! They took a vague description that I gave them about what we wanted our wedding to look like and made it into the perfect reality. I had so many people compliment how beautiful everything was, and I was more than happy to tell them who had done all of the work. We had a friend make our wedding invitations, and I wanted the other decorations to match. Emily's team was able to look at the photo I sent them and recreate the images beautifully! Our wedding day would not have been the perfect day without Emily and her team; I highly recommend having them be part of your special day.

  • Emily and her team were amazing and we used her decorating expertise for our fall themed wedding in November of 2016. I fully trusted Emily with her creative direction. I gave her my vision and she brought that vision to life on my wedding day. Emily and her teams work is exceptional. I wa very pleased when I arrives to my venue. The Vanns

  • We used Main Event for our wedding in 2016 and it was the best experience we ever had. From the minute we sat down she captured our vision and carried it out. If I wanted to make a change no matter how little or big she was right there with us and made it flow perfect. It was such a relief for us to have her and her team on our special day!!

  • I was very understanding that with Emily's business expanding that she would be busy. But I felt very left out and not important. I would email and leave voicemails and not hear back for weeks at a time. There was always an excuse as to why my messages were never returned. Because she came as a recommendation by my sister-in-law the year before, and she was aware of this, I felt I was put on the back burner and not given the best customer service. I met with Emily the week before the wedding at the venue, she was late and did not call as a courtesy, I had to call her to ask where she was after 10-15 minutes (she finally arrived after being 20 mins late). The on-site meeting, the details of where everyone would be for getting ready were discussed. When I arrived on location the day of the wedding, Emily and her crew were no where to be found and no instruction on bouquets or corsages. They were all just sitting on a table. When I asked where Emily and crew were, the venue director advis... Read more

  • Erica Heide Gambino · 2 seconds ago Emily & her team did a beautiful job for our wedding. I wanted to keep it really simple and just use greenery. She was really helpful guiding us with what types to pick out (we ended up going with different types of eucalyptus). At the last minute, we added a 10 ft garland for the ceremony arch and she didn't bat an eye. Had we know about her sooner, we would have used her coordinating services also. Thanks so much!

  • Emily and Alana lifted every weddig weight off of my shoulders! They were amazing and professional and efficient and affordable! I was on a tight budget and they made it happen. I had a couple consultations with Emily and gave her the premis of what I was thinking and she took them all and ran with it. Our wedding was even more beautiful than I could have imagined. And Alana was the best coordinator we could have ever hired! She was prompt, on time and kept the show running smoothly! I recommend!all of my friends to The Main Event because it doesn't get any better than them!
