Where do we even begin to speak on our experience with Extravagant Experience. It should be name something like Immaculate Experience. Natoshia Drinkard is very professional and will go through hoops with fire flames on it. She is can you say AMAZING. She has the answers and if she doesn't at the moment she will definitely get back with you with an answer. She is very knowledgeable and she made our wedding a blast and so stress free. She is honest and gives great insight on ideas for the weddings. Everything that we needed she was right there and she is very socialable. Her attitude and poise and character makes any BRIDE feel comfortable to approach her with any questions or comments or concerns. I couldn't have asked for a better Wedding Coordinator or company to support me on my special day. My husband totally agrees as well. Thanks for all the services and the extras :o)

Natoshia is VERY GREAT!!! She has a wonderful talent and is such a pleasure to work with!! She is very knowledgeable of everything that is wedding.Not only is she a great wedding planner, she is just a great person all around. She was always there to listen to all of my likes, dislikes, and all of my concerns. She was even there when I had my wedding "meltdowns" and was right there to talk me through them. Also she is very flexible when it comes to meeting times, which I appreciated because me and my husband's schedule was crazy during this time. I also appreciated the fact that she was very accessible when needed-either via text, phone, or e-mail: which any bride would appreciate it for those freaking out moments. Also price wise, Natoshia fit right into our budget. Very Reasonable On Price!! And the most important thing of all- Natoshia was able to make my wedding day go very smooth and collaborate with all vendors to make a dream come true (if there were any problems, they must have been handled because I surely was not made aware of any). This is something you can appreciate as a bride because on the wedding day there are a million and one things that a bride is worried about!! If I had to do it all over again, I would definitely choose Natoshia and An Extravagant Experience again without any questions asked. I think anyone would be thoroughly pleased if they chose these services.

I love, love, love Natoshia. I was so happy that I decided to use her service. By the time I had acquired her services I had most of the important details completed for my wedding. I just wanted to make sure I had someone there who would control the day of necessities. I believe I choose the silver package. She reviewed all the contracts and contacted all the vendors to make sure everything was good there. We met in person 3 times and she was always available via emial, phone or text (which I loved). She was very personable and made me really comfortable about her services.

I didn't really start calling her until about 2 weeks before my wedding but she never complained.

Natoshia - she's not bossy as you would expect from a planner, she is direct but she has non dominating presence. All my vendors and guests stated that she was very good and I know she was excellent.

I didn't realize how hectic the rehearsal or day of would be and I'm sooooo glad that I had Natoshia there to run to. She kept me calm b/c she was calm. We had a mishap with my bridesmaid dress and she handled it. She made sure that everything started on time and was done correctly.

I freaked out around 4 am the day of and texted her and she immediately responded with a call and text. She's awesome


LOVE HER!!! I have already recommended her to my friend who is also using her services.

We interviewed several wedding planners and ended up picking Natoshia. This was definitely the best choice we could have made! We hired her only a couple of months after we got engaged and before we started any of the planning. She was there during every step of the planning from suggesting, setting up appointments and visiting locations, recommending vendors to taking care of the little "emergencies" that come up during the wedding day. She always promply replied to all of our questions and offered her advice throughout the planning process. If you would like to have a stress free and enjoyable engagement, hire Natoshia. Let her worry about the details and focus on the joy and love you share with your fiancee in anticipation of your big day!

An Extravagant Experience went above and beyond to help make our wedding day everything we'd hoped for and more. Natoshia came to my office for meetings to save me time, helped recommend vendors, coordinated details with our vendors, and helped communicate our vision to the vendors. Beyond that, on our wedding day we didn't have to worry about a thing! She supervised set-up and kept everything on schedule the day of the wedding. Additionally, she sent a helpful newsletter out to our wedding party prior to, and made a wedding day schedule for them. Having An Extravagent Experience allowed us to enjoy planning a wedding, which can typically be a very stressful process. We had the large wedding we wanted, and our day was PERFECT. My husband and I both agree that hiring a wedding planner was one of our best wedding day investments! We highly recommend An Extravagant Experience's services!

When I contacted Natoshia I thought all I needed was for someone to help me organize last minute wedding details and run things the day of my wedding. Instead, she went above and beyond by suggesting vendors, keeping a checklist, and calling to check up on my progress even for the smallest things that can slip our minds like getting a garter. Between an odd work schedule, moving, and having an opinionated mother, I don't know what I would have done without Natoshia! Even the day of the wedding she helped set up the centerpieces and uplighting for the reception which turned out beautiful and exactly the way I wanted. I almost considered contracting a light specialist to do this task for me before finding her, and I'm so glad I didn't waste time with them because she did a fabulous job. Natoshia and her assistant were professional throughout this experience and truly enjoy what they do and I would recommend them to anyone wanting to have an extravagant experience.

Natoshia Drinkard and her staff at An Extravagant Experience went above and beyond. We contracted her services about 3 months prior to the wedding. At that point, my fiance' and I had already contracted all of the other vendors, but we wanted someone to keep everyone on their toes and make sure things happened like they were supposed to. Natoshia came on board, and we could not have been more pleased with the services we received from her and her staff. She was usually available for phone calls, and always returned them promptly if she was not. She was completely professional in her dress and attitude, yet able to relate to us like a friend. Her company offered several different service packages and had no problem tailoring ours to suit our needs. She was prompt and totally reliable, and we were able to put our faith in her, without worry, right away. Our wedding certainly would not have been the lovely STRESS FREE event that it was without her!
