Honeymoon Planning

Day of Wedding Coordination
This is the package we love to call our “Panic Package”. This is typically when the couple begins to panic because they have to pull all the details together. Involvement of the Wedding Planner will begin 1-2 months before the wedding day. Our Wedding Day Coordination Package allows the bride and groom to enjoy their special day without the stress of overseeing all the vendors and activities. Typically, the Bride and Groom will have a list of preferred vendors and have taken care of signing all vendor contracts and have given deposits and payments throughout the wedding planning months.

Involvement of the Wedding Planner at this stage would be to review specific details with Bride and Groom and review all vendor contracts. Wedding Planner would communicate with all vendors to introduce involvement in the wedding. Wedding Planner would prepare schedule of events and prepare timelines for Bride and Groom as well as vendors. The Wedding Planner would also attend the ceremony, cocktail party and reception to ensure all details and flow of wedding go as planned.

Wedding Consultations and Ongoing Advice
For the wedding couple that prefers to plan their entire wedding but just does not know how to start or what the most cost-effective approach is, our Wedding Consultations Package offers an opportunity for the Bride and Groom to ask questions and receive guidance by prioritizing and working on a budget with the wedding planner. Wedding Consultations are a minimum of 2 hours. We would cover a preliminary budget; plan a schedule and recommendations of specific vendors.

Additional Services
We know that there are always those ‘little things’ that sometimes get missed and that is why we offer additional services that are proven to be a huge benefit to our couples such as announcement of engagement in the newspaper, planning engagement party, planning the bridal shower, planning the bachelorette party, announcement of wedding in the newspaper, Name change process after the wedding, information on visas, passports and inoculations.

There were so many times before our wedding that I said "I'm so glad we have Elika!". We hired her about a year before our wedding to act as a day of coordinator, but in practice that meant she began working with us closely about 2-3 months prior to our wedding to gather all of the information about our vendors and the schedule for that day. She was well organized and a great communicator. She ensured that all of our vendors knew exactly what to do and where to go and what to bring -- I didn't have to think once about any of those details. Best of all, she insisted on being the designated "point of contact" for our guests as well as our vendors, so we distributed her phone number and contact information to everyone in advance for last minute questions about dress code, directions, anything. I didn't look at my phone ONCE on my wedding day and I knew that everything was taken care of - that is a great feeling.

I think that Elika also went above and beyond in helping us to work together when our venue was a little flaky about contractual and planning details. She made an extra visit to the venue to meet in person with us and the venue staff to iron out all of the details so that we would feel comfortable. She was extremely professional and made sure that all of the details were secured, and she took notes to make sure everything was documented.

Elika was the wedding planner for my wedding last month. With barely any planning done on my own, I contacted her 2 months before my wedding day! She helped me make my wedding very beautiful and successful. The wedding was elegant, exactly how I envisioned it would be. She kept me on the right track with planning and prioritizing. Her team also kept me stress free on my wedding day! Elika was very understanding and patient with me. She also reviewed contracts, communicated and organized all the vendors and made sure the venue was taking care of things on their end. I will use her services again in the future. I would highly recommend her to my sisters (I have 4 of them) when they are getting married and my friends!

Dear Kimberly and Christian,

Thank you so much for this wonderful review of our services. We (Dana, Kate and I) truly enjoyed planning with you. I just saw some of the pictures from your wedding and they are so beautiful. Wish I could have been there to see you walk down the aisle. I am so glad my team was able to assist you on the day of your wedding. I couldn't have done it without them. I absolutely love your family...so down to earth and genuine. I was told they were having a great time on the dance floor...that's always a good sign. Can't wait to help your sisters plan their wedding as well. We are very much looking forward to it.

Big hug for you, Christian and little Daniel,

Elika

We brought Elika on about two months before our wedding and her help proved invaluable. She was able to find secondary vendors for us and set up weekly phone meetings to keep us on track. She was on email and text with us nearly every day and helped to coordinate nearly every element. She also provided checklists and detailed itineraries for us. Our wedding was a weekend-long affair with events on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and Elika worked tirelessly on our behalf the whole week. The day of the wedding, I was able to enjoy getting ready and spending time with my bridesmaids knowing that she had everything under control. There were a few things that ended up differently than I expected, but she handled the last-minute decisions with grace that left my husband and I with so many great memories of our wedding.

It took me a long time to finally decide to hire a wedding planner. I was worried about spending the extra money, but about 3 months before the wedding I came to my senses, and I couldn't be happier that I did. Elika was absolutely amazing to work with and I can't recommend her highly enough (also, I'm sure she ended up paying for herself after everything she saved us!)

We had our wedding on a very remote family property, and not only did Elika stick with us once she saw what she was getting herself into, she went above and beyond in every way. For example, there are no big hotels around our property, so our guests were spread out in rental cabins and little B&Bs all over the area. I was really worried about people getting home safely, with no central location to carpool to our bus company to charter. Without us even asking, Elika offered to rent a van and shuttle people to and from the venue. Her amazing intern, Dana, showed up with the cutest chauffeur's hat (customized to our wedding) and got my friends home safe until about 2am.

Elika also ended up acting as florist for our wedding. Hiring a professional to come out to our location was cost prohibitive and Elika stepped right up! I showed her a couple photos of the the flowers/aesthetic I liked and she ordered everything, transported it all to the venue, and made all the arrangements. I gave her minimal direction and she was able to accomplish exactly what I wanted!

I could literally go on and on - from cake deliveries, emergency vodka runs, porta-potty rescues, I didn't have to worry about a thing :) Hire Elika and I guarantee you will not be let down!

I am so happy and thankful that we hired Elika for our day of coordination. She responded VERY quickly to all my emails. She is very professional and she is amazing at what she does. She pulled through big on my big day. The venue had some pretty big mess ups but Elika was right there helping fix them. She is very creative and helped with an amazing seating chart table and design. She helped me find a florist and those flowers turned out beautiful. I can’t rave enough on how amazing Elika is. She is a must hire.

Elika was a fantastic day of coordinator for our complicated event. We hired Elika two months before our wedding. Our event had 60 guests attending a series of events over a weekend: Friday night-cocktail party with band, bonfire, afterparty, Saturday- glassblowing, yoga, skeet shooting, hayride, ceremony and formal reception with live entertainment, afterparty, Sunday brunch.
Elika was a great help in the weeks leading up to the wedding. We had a weekly conference call to discuss various details of the event. She developed her own very in depth schedule and brought up several details that we had overlooked. When my hair trial went poorly, she helped me to find a different salon to complete the specialized vintage hair style I wanted. She worked closely with the wedding coordinator at the venue to clearly outline each of their responsibilities and make sure that every detail was exactly how we wanted it. She coordinated all the arrival times for the offsite vendors. She shopped for put together, and distributed welcome bags for our guests.
On the weekend of our event, Elika was on the scene constantly. She helped to clean up the site for the skeet shooting event as the ground were messy and not very presentable- setting up tables, chairs, and decorations so guests would feel more welcome. She coordinated shuttles back and forth between the alternate hotel. She greeted guests and made sure they were signed up for all the events they wanted to attend. She set up and helped light our 120 candle holders, helped vendors get set up, kept us on schedule, and generally kept everything running smoothly. Our event had hundreds of details to keep track of, and Elika was on top of every one. There were absolutely no mishaps, and all of our guests are still talking about how well coordinated and delightful the weekend was. Elika was a huge part in making that happen and you should definitely hire her to help your event run smoothly.

My husband and I hired Elika when we realized that we made some fundamental mistakes in the wedding planning process. Elika immediately got to work fixing our wedding and creating an event even better than we imagined! She worked around our schedule and was consistently available to talk, text and email. Elika is extremely professional and organized. She has many connections with other quality wedding vendors which we took advantage of. Elika tracked our payments to our vendors and reminded us when payments were due. She made the entire wedding process stress free for my husband and I.

Elika also worked very hard to make our ceremony joint jewish and catholic. She interviewed several Rabbis and narrowed it down to the top 3 and let us decide. After we found the officiants Elika worked with them to create a custom ceremony program. She put a lot of time and effort into the ceremony and it really showed on our wedding day.

Beside all of the hard work Elika put into our wedding planning, she did a fantastic job on our wedding day. Elika took care of every detail and resolved any issues that we ran into. She took care of everything so that we could enjoy the day. I can't imagine what my wedding day would have been like without Elika.

Elika Almeida couldn't have been a more fantastic wedding coordinator for us! My bride Myra and I decided not to use a professional venue setting in order to save money, but all the planning responsibilities were on us which added incredibly to our stress level. Once we hired Elika she began collaborating with us (my bride especially) to make sure we would have the most gorgeous wedding possible.

I cannot tell you how many times I would hear Myra say, after another detail had been hashed out, "Elika's amazing." She took so much stress off Myra's plate during the whole process. Anytime a vendor needed to be contacted or a chore needed to be executed, she would happily accept anything that was asked of her. She was in Myra's corner when she needed it most in the days leading up to the wedding and we would not have been able to pull this off with such grace without her tireless efforts.

I cannot recommend her more highly!
