Last weekend we had the wedding not only of our dreams but also probably the dream wedding for many of our guests. My husband Michael and myself first met Edna for coffee back at the beginning of the year and the connection was made immediately—hands down one of the best decisions we have ever made was to entrust our dream to her capable hands. From save the dates to invitations to napkins and then the enchanted venue itself there was not a single detail that was left to chance or forgotten. The interplay of design, color, whimsy, everything was evident everywhere you looked—sometimes very obvious and sometimes subtle but the end effect was magical. We held our wedding and reception at the New England Aquarium and Edna and her team managed to convert what could be a cavernous and overly stimulating environment into an intimate space that flowed perfectly with our vision and always an undercurrent of shear elegance. From the flowers to the table settings to the dance floor and lighting we came as close to perfection that you can get in our eyes.

Working with Edna was like working with your favorite sibling and someone who you just knew would never let you down but also tell you the truth and not just what you wanted to hear. She knew when to let us roam free and when to pull us back to safety. I would absolutely trust her with any event that we might plan in the future. Each one of her suggestions and decisions were spot on—amazing!!

The last month or so of planning—enter Kasie. Where do I start? How can one individual be in so many places and think of so many details and never lose track of a single item—she is truly Superwoman in our book. We had been warned that things go wrong but no one but us would know it but operationally the whole wedding was flawless from what we could tell. I honestly don’t know how she does it but she does and it is all done with humor and grace and love. Edna and Kasie ROCK!!

I am not sure there are words to fully express how amazing Edna, Kasie and the EFD Creative team were to work with. My wedding day could not have been more perfect and I know so much had to do with the great work that the team Edna and Kasie pulled together. Edna and Kasie were both easy to work with, always available to answer questions or bounce ideas off of. Edna is a fountain of knowledge and resources for anything wedding related and has an amazing way of taking small details and turning them into a complete and incredible final product. I found both Edna and Kasie supportive of what my husband and I wanted to put emphasis on for our special day and ways of incorporating all of our ideas. They both had great organization and understood the flow of each part of the process, which made working with them feel very controlled and comfortable. These ladies are easy to talk to, sweet, creative... simply superwomen at their jobs. I could not recommend anyone more highly and am so thankful that I had them with me for the entire process for they made it fun, involved very little stress, and everything turned out better than I could have imagined.

I was able to relax and enjoy my daughters wedding knowing Kasie was in charge. She was a pleasure to work with, always ready with a smile. She caught many things we might have missed and ensured that everything went smoothly the day of. I had complete confidence in her.

Edna and Kasie made our wedding beautiful. Edna connected us with amazing vendors. She also guided the design and theme of our wedding which we loved! Kasie is an angel! She seamlessly handled all the logistics leading up to the wedding and on the day of the wedding. Could not have done it without EFD.

Kasie was a total pleasure to work with! She was organized, responsive and very open to our somewhat non-traditional wedding. She listened carefully to what we wanted and communicated with all of the vendors in a way that took a lot of the work off of our plates. Thanks to Kasie the wedding weekend went so incredibly smoothly. Everything happened on time and in a relaxed way. With Kasie's help planning, we had all of our T's crossed and our I's dotted before the wedding weekend began so that we could just enjoy our wedding. Kasie is upbeat, positive, energetic and a truly wonderful person to have by your side through the wedding planning process. I'd highly recommend her!

EFD Creative was such an amazing team to work with! As we began wedding planning I was in my first year of law school and knew that we couldn't possibly do it ourselves. We searched for a team that would be able to cover every single aspect of the wedding efficiently, and found our match. After we met Edna I knew we could relax and unwind. She immediately contacted vendors and gave me several options. Throughout out the whole process we lived in Houston, TX and only made two trips home. One trip to pick out the decor and venue, and another for the tasting, flowers, engagement photos, mock table, and church (which they coordinated all on the same day at one location!!). Ultimately they made the process a lot easier and less stressful on our lives. They were also patient with us and our busy schedule. So many decisions needed to be made, but our schedule was just so busy that we sometimes could not spare a thought on the wedding. To ensure that tasks were completed Kasie would consolidate everything onto a to do list for a timely efficient meeting over the phone when I did I have time, and that was everything to my life! Kasie was honestly just heaven sent. When wedding planning (especially with a guest count of 325) you will always have something that needs to be addressed, and realistically people are just busy with other important aspects of life making it become overwhelming. Luckily EFD takes that feeling away and makes the process as seamless as possible. They worked around my schedule, maximized our times together, and had EVERYTHING in order at ALL times. They were thorough, responsive, professional and such a pleasure to work with. Ultimately they made our dream wedding come true, and we are forever thankful for all of their hard work!!

When I found out my daughter was ready to plan her wedding I immediately began searching for a great team that could help us along the way. When I first talked to Edna we had an amazing conversation, and I knew I found our match! As the mother of the bride Edna/Kasie were able to help me save money. They are very efficient and quickly put my worries and questions at ease, while walking me through the hectic process. They also provided us with remarkable vendors that worked amazing together! We were so thrilled to know this day was going to be amazing for my daughter and son-in-law. No task was too big or little for them to address, making me feel comfortable asking for their help. This team was a pleasure to work with and have my recommendation to any parent who wants to ensure their child has a fantastic, meaningful, and beautiful wedding.

We loved working with Edna, Kasie and her team - our wedding day was a beautiful success.

My wife and I live in NYC but got married in Boston. Through research and recommendations we found and ultimately selected EFD Creative.

We were very impressed with Edna's and Kasie's professionalism, their structured work and accommodating our needs and meeting times - as we were planning our wedding remotely, these aspects were very important to us.

EFD Creative pointed us to great, professional vendors and supported us throughout the work with these.

We very much liked that Edna and Kasie supported, yet also challenged our ideas.

The actual wedding day was perfectly executed and managed by Kasie and her team - both in terms of logistics and design. My wife and I were able to enjoy the entire day as all planning etc was quietly managed in the background.

As a testament to EFD's excellent work, we received (and continue to) many compliments from our guests on the wedding day.

We definitely recommend EFD's services!

Thank you
