This is an overdue review for our wedding back in February 2016. Emily is awesome to work with! She is very professional, easy going, and is a great listener! Emily replies back to all of my questions within a few hours, and sometimes within an hour of sending her a message. My husband and I trusted Emily to make our special day a memorable one, and she did not disappoint. Emily is not pushy, listens to what we want, found the best deals for us, and made it happen to work within our budget. She offered great advice on how much and when to tip our vendors, and also helped with giving the tip envelops out to some of our vendors when our hands were tied with taking pictures. On our wedding day, Emily brought her sewing kit, make-up kit, and whatever else she thinks we may need. Emily made sure the bridesmaids, groomsmen, both parents, flower girls, and ring boys know their role and prepped them for the ceremony. Once the ceremony ended, Emily made sure all of our things were moved to the reception site and she double checked each space/room we used at the ceremony site to make sure we did not forget anything. At the reception, Emily made sure the decorations are up, everything look according to plan, and once again prepped us for the grand entrance. Emily did a great job in coordinating with our DJ and made sure they were both on the same page with music and when each wedding party is heading in. Emily also did a great job at our reception and made sure it ran on schedule, communicated with the vendors on our behalf when she noticed something is out of place and fixed it right away. She constantly checks in on us and took care of our needs that night. Whether it be getting the waiters to refill our water glasses, fixing my up do hair when it started falling, or just making sure we are okay. At the end of the night, she put all of our belongings in our car and again made sure nothing were forgotten. Emily is just Awesome!! We highly recommend her! Thank you Emily!!! – Jolie
Everlasting Serendipity coordinated my wedding last month. I hired Emily about midway through my wedding planning because I was in denial that I needed a coordinator. I enjoyed all the aspects of wedding planning and I am a very organized person, so I initially thought I can save the money and skip the wedding coordinator. Then, literally every past brides I talked to, every vendor I met with, ALL told me to hired at least a day of coordinator to ensure everything runs smoothly. After doing research, I found and booked E.S. During the planning stages, I met with Emily a few times to discuss the details. She wrote down all my ideas on her notebook, even if it’s something small. She also gave me some great suggestions and answered all of my questions timely. Now that the wedding is over, I think back to it and THANK GOD I hired Emily. One of my biggest concerns for our wedding was time management. I’ve been a part of a wedding where everything was 30+ minutes later than the scheduled time slot. I was very fearful that this would happen to us. We had 2 venues (one for ceremony, one for reception), and we had quite a bit of events going on, and a lot of DIYs. During the last 2 weeks or so, I began to unload every tiny detail on Emily and I’m surprised how she’s able to remember everything when it was getting all over the place even for me. Despite of all this chaos of excruciating details and 2 venues, every event was on time and organized. Every vendor knew where they’re supposed to be, and my husband and I didn’t worry about a thing. The time management was amazing! We even had time to eat during the reception! Emily and her team are extremely professional and will surely make your event a stress free one! – Tina
Groom here. Truthfully speaking, did not think we needed a wedding planner at the beginning but now that the wedding is done, was very happy we had Emily coordinate for us. There’s a lot of events during our wedding and pre-planning everything with Emily and offloading to her on the day of allowed us to have a stress free and wonderful wedding. Emily and her assistants kept things organized and moving along while being out of the way. Key point in our wedding that made me glad we had Emily: We had a Gelato bar at our wedding and in between all the business, without even asking, Emily got us some right between two scheduled events so that we can enjoy it. -Groom
Emily was our wedding planner and thank the Lord for sending her. After listening to the horror stories of friends and family planning their big day, we decided to hire a professional. Emily came highly recommended, she was sweet, efficient, realistic and helped us stay well within our budget. From her selection of DJ, to itinerary planning, coordinating between church and reception venue, her gifts of planning really shined. Our dear friends and love ones that attended our wedding commented on how smooth and fun the wedding was. Her creative ideas for table scape, picture opportunities we wouldn’t have thought of. No hiccups, not one person asked us a single question about schedules or anything for that matter. We were free to really enjoy our big day. If you would like to have an amazing wedding and minimize stress HIRE Emily hands down. She is heaven sent!

I spent a year planning my dream wedding and Emily was there from the very start. From the beginning, Emily walked us through multiple venue locations, gave us great ideas on color schemes, themes and vendor options, and finalized the look and tone of our wedding ceremony and reception. Not only was she organized, but she was also very creative. I showed her some wedding signs on Pinterest that I liked and she was able to help me design a similar one that came out perfect. My wedding day was very long, starting at 10 in the morning, lasting till 10 at night. Emily and her team were early for the tea ceremony and kept us on schedule throughout the day, which I know is a very tough task. She was ready for any situation, even fixing my ripped Chinese dress right before the tea ceremony, as she came prepared with a sewing kit. The wedding was perfect and we received many compliments from our friends and family. She gave us a chance to enjoy our big day without any stress and I am so glad we hired her. Emily was very professional and an amazing coordinator to work with. I highly recommend her! –Irene and John
