EOE is amazing and I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for flowers, wedding coordination, or both! We initially met with Dee and Lauren for floral and ended up having EOE do partial wedding coordination (as at the time, the basics, like venue, etc. were already in place). Dee was so kind that she put out there she would help review any contracts even if we didn't hire any wedding coordination. My now husband and I felt confident in her and the team. We had an issue with our initial venue (which we had prior to meeting Dee and the EOE team) and had to find a new venue within a few months of our wedding. Dee met with us immediately to weigh out changing locations and within days we had a new venue in contract and planning continued. I give EOE an excellent rating because they do great work and these ladies work hard to make you feel like the only bride they are working with and will make your day sepctacular. With that said, to future brides/grooms, it is easy to get caught up in unrealistic expectations and it could be frustrating if the response isn't immediate or something on the big day does not go as expected. It is important to realize that this is the wedding world. Venue, vendors, etc., will get back to you when they get the answer or when they have the time to give you the full attention (we aren't talking more than a day). It would be easy to point the finger if something goes wrong on your big day, but reality is with or without a coordinator there will be little details you will notice that do not go smoothly, but at least you know with EOE those little mishaps will be minimal vs. not having them, and that any mishaps will be professionally taken care of by EOE staff. So if you are looking for floral or wedding coordination EOE comes highly recommended (trust me when I say I researched every floral/wedding coordinator on the west side of Michigan - save yourself some time)!

Dee was amazing to work with! We used her day-of services to coordinate vendors and help with set up, but she did so much more! Dee helped up choose vendors, provided honest and real advice, did multiple visits to our reception site and worked closely with our vendors to make sure that our wedding day went off without a hitch. Neither my husband and I, nor our family, had anything to worry about on our wedding day - we knew that Dee had it all taken care of and we were able to just enjoy.

Dee and her team at Elements of Elegance are beyond top notch.
Without them, the intricate touches and details I had planned for the wedding would not have been possible to implement. My mother, husband, and I got to be GUESTS at the wedding - and we cherish (and remember) every bit. Dee tackled out of state planning, and made tremendous efforts to meet with me, even going out a good distance out of her way. We could not be more grateful for all the support she provided, and ABSOLUTELY sing her praises. Having Dee there was the ultimate gift we gave ourselves - peace of mind!

Dee and her team are AMAZING! We hired her team as day of coordinator's for our day after wedding BBQ. From the moment we hired Dee, she went above and beyond my expectations.

At the time of planning we were living abroad and needed someone to take the lead on the BBQ for 90 guests. As I was busy planning the wedding, Dee and her team executed everything related to the BBQ beautifully. Her team kept us up to date on progress and next steps. Additionally, she went above her job when I had questions regarding our own wedding planning. On the day of the event, my husband and I got to enjoy the day without having to worrying about anything. We just enjoyed our guests, while her team handle any and all situations.

Dee's services didn't end with the event. When I had questions regarding vendor billing, she followed up with the vendor and resolved the issue.

Book Dee and her team if you want your event executed perfectly!!!!

I can't say enough about how amazing Dee and the entire Elements of Elegance team was for my 6/22 wedding. I am not from Michigan so planning a wedding from Chicago had it's challenges. From the moment I spoke to Dee she was so helpful. I really do not know what I would have done without her. From always being available for questions, concerns or ideas I had, to recommending vendors, reviewing contracts, mapping out timelines--everything. She went way above and beyond and I really felt like she cared as much about making the day as amazing as I did. Sometimes wedding planning can get overwhelming and she made sure we stayed on track. For anyone considering a wedding planner I would 100% recommend the Elements of Elegance team. Also, Dee did my flowers and I can't tell you how many compliments I received. The day was just perfect and I owe a lot of that to the professionalism and care of Elements of Elegance.

There really wasn't another option for me to choose from - having worked with Dee as a professional in the wedding business for years, when it came to my own day, SHE was who I HAD to have. She captured the vision for my wedding, and executed it better than I ever could have on my own! From start to finish, she was my go-to person, and I was confident every minute she would have it all handled. It was honestly more than I ever dreamed of, and the least stressful day of my life!

My groom and I decided in September 2012 that instead of having a large
scale wedding in July of 2013, that we wanted a smaller, more intimate
wedding done in the Winter of 2012. With this time change, we knew we were
going to need a planner who could work quickly, keep us on track
financially, and provide an expedited time line. After I did some research
online, I emailed a few local planners with our needs. Dee was not only the
first to respond, but the only one who sent a personal response. We set up a first
appointment, by the time we left, we were sure we'd found our planner. We had a fixed budget, and Dee helped us stay within that number. She provided a list of tasks we needed to complete ASAP, along with a list of weekly tasks to complete start working on. She helped us find the venue, photographer, and officiant. She arranged our ceremony and reception decoration. EOE was our florist and made beautiful arrangements for
us and came in under what we had budgeted! The pre wedding guidance Dee and
her staff was invaluable. We also hired Elements of Elegance for the Wedding Day Planning Package or "Day of" planning. Other than hiring Dee and EOE in the first place, choosing the day of planning was the BEST decision we made. On our wedding day our family kept saying how relaxed and laid back my groom and I were. That was only because Dee and her staff orchestrated the entire day. Dee has surrounded herself with staff who share her calm demeanor, which is just what we needed! Because of EOE, I was able to relax and enjoy my wedding day without any drama. It couldn't have gone any better. Every guest raved about how flawless the night was. I would gladly recommend Dee and Elements of Elegance to ANYONE looking for a planner. Next to picking my husband, it was the best decision I made about my wedding. I can't help but give them 5 stars across the board!

I am not the bride who had her perfect wedding dreamed up since being a little girl, so when I started planning my wedding I knew that (1) I was going to need some help, (2) I wanted that person to understand my personality and my wants and not deliver me an over-the-top wedding extravaganza, and (3) I did not want that person to be a family member as I just wanted everyone to be able to relax, eat, dance, and enjoy my wedding day. Enter Dee Mitchell and her team at Elements of Elegance (who we also hired to be our florist as well). From beginning to end, Dee and her team were nothing short of fantastic. Every step of the way, from deciding on flower arrangements (which was largely done through Pinterest pinnings, since I am clueless with flower names) to finding a new catering when my first one cancelled on me to making sure I had every piece of rental equipment I needed, Dee was there to check off lists and ask questions and make sure that I had all my ducks in a row. More than that, Dee is one of the most warm, loving, and caring people I met along the planning process. I always felt that she was in my corner and that she would go beyond her actual contractual duties to make sure that I had my perfect moment. Without hesitation, I would recommend Elements of Elegance to any future bride.

There are things you don't think of appointing someone to take care of so Dee was the one who took care of them. She made our wedding day run so smoothly and deterred any incidents that may have probably happened had she not been there. Can't thank her enough for pulling together our perfect day.

We planned my Lake Michigan wedding from our current home in New York, so we needed some help with recommendations, since it was impossible to meet with all the vendors that we would have liked to. We went back and forth on weither or not we wanted to hire a coordinator, because I was such a hands on bride. In my research I did not find any coordinators as well priced and well-reviewed as EOE. We met with Dee and it instantly convinced my husband that hiring a day of coordinator would be in our best intrest. We hired Elements of Elegance first as our day-of-coordinator, then as our florist. Dee and her team were so great and flexible working with us from a far and meeting us on our few pop-ins to Grand Rapids. We worked with Holly on wedding day, she and her assistants were so helpful and attentive, they kept us from worrying about all the little things we didn't want to worry about on that day. And, even made sure mine and my husband's drinks were filled.

Dee and her team also did our personal flowers, bouquets and boutonnieres. Dee took all my inspiration into consideration (and there was a lot), as well as cost restrictions and found us in-season flowers that looked fabulous. The EOE team understood my vision and FLOORED me with the most beautiful bouquets I could have imagined.

Thank you for all your help!

We can't say enough about Dee and Elements of Elegance. They went above and beyond our expectations in every aspect of their work, and played a huge role in making our day a success. The floral was beautiful, but we didn't expect anything else from someone as talented as Dee! She really took the time to listen to our vision for the day, and then created something even better than we imagined.
EOE also provided day-of coordination for us, which was such a blessing. We had multiple issues with another vendor, but lead planner Sara calmly and swiftly stepped in to address all the problems. Our ceremony and reception ran smoothly and the stellar team at EOE deserves all the credit.

Dee was absolutely AMAZING! She was incredibly helpful and worked along with me to create the floral designs that I had imagined for our wedding day and that we both thought would look amazing. She was always a pleasure to chat with and was a great listener too. Dee was also great at helping me make decisions.

I was literally blown away by our flowers when the day-of came along. They were over and above anything I could have imagined; they were gorgeous, and everyone commented on how perfect our flowers looked and how well they reflected the elegant theme of our wedding. Dee did an excellent job with our flowers and her to the tee organization, creative personality, and amazing attitude were an absolute joy to work with! I would recommend Dee to any of my closest friends and family.

There is not enough that I could say about Dee and her team. We wanted an outdoor wedding in my parent's backyard and a reception at a separate venue. Logistically it was a handful for us and it was, as far as we know, a breeze for her. Simply put, she did precisely what we wanted (even though at times we weren't even sure what that was) and made everything easy. I had a lot of people say that there would always be that little thing that went wrong that no one of the guests would notice. Nothing went wrong, everything went the way it should. This is exactly how a bride should feel about their wedding day. I actually miss meeting her and talking and joking around now. Would definitely recommend.

Dee and her staff at Elements of Elegance Event Planning and Floral were beyond helpful. My husband and I hired Dee and her staff to provide all the flowers for our wedding and to be our day before and day of wedding planners. First, I can't even start to explain how happy we were with the flowers. I gave Dee the idea I had in my mind for the flowers, but I don't know much about flowers at all, so she took my idea and ran with it. Our flowers were exactly what I had envisioned and even more so. They were perfect and the day of our wedding her staff used all the flowers to set up our wedding ceremony and reception so beautifully. Second, having Dee and her staff as our day before and day of wedding coordinators was one of the best wedding ideas we had and worth every penny. My mind was at such ease knowing that I had two very competent wedding coordinators assisting me and my groom on our wedding day. We had a few snags in the plans, but the wedding assistance were on top of it before I had a chance to worry or even know about them. I would use Dee and her company again in a heart beat and I felt that she helped make our wedding day the most enjoyable day of our lives so far! :)

Dee was my wedding planner and flourist and she did an amazing job! Dee took our vision and colors and brought them to life. She made sure we were happy with the final product and worked until it was perfect. The ballroom on our wedding day was breathtaking!!! Dee listened to countless voicemails and was very patient with us. Dee was professional and would meet us anywhere to go over wedding details and most importantly budget! She made sure our wedding day went as smoothe as possible. If there were any 'hic-cups' I never knew about them because she had already taken care of it. Dee and her staff remained with us from start to finish on our wedding day and even turned our cottage into a beautiful setting to come home to on our wedding night. My wedding would have not been the same without Dee!! :) She is extremely talented and does her job so very well. We received many compliments on how wonderful Dee was as a person and how amazing our venue looked. Even weeks after the wedding we still got calls from people that couldn't say enough about our wedding. I will hire her again in a heartbeat for my second wedding! Haha KIDDING!! I am so happily married and Dee made our special day, one that we will never forget. Thanks again Dee & staff of Elements of Elegance!!!

Even weeks after the wedding we still got calls from people that couldn't say enough about our wedding. I will hire her again in a heartbeat for my second wedding! Haha KIDDING!! I am so happily married and Dee made our special day, one that we will never forget. Thanks again Dee & staff of Elements of Elegance!!! Read less

First off, I'd like to say that I wish I could grant far beyond a 5 star rating for Dee's services. She was the biggest help when it came down to the entire event. Eddie and I love how detail oriented she is and how much care and concern she expressed with all our needs. Dee is one to go above and beyond and not expect more from your wallet while adding stress to your plate. She resolved any wedding stress and/or jitters and help us out with so many odds and ends that you would expect only a close friend or family member would help you out with. Not only was she our coordinator and florist, she became party my family throughout the process. Dee is fun and creative, innovative and compassionate about what she does and cares deeply for her clients. Her confidence is to die for. You can tell that she absolutely loves what she does and loves the people she works with. I have a crazy family who's hard to mold to and she fit right into the scheme of things without any awkwardness or conflict. Dee is by far the best candidate for anyone looking for a coordinator and/or florist. Eddie and I had interviewed so many possible coordinators and so many possible florists and no one seemed to fit what we were looking for. We found Dee and emailed back a forth a few times before we set up an initial interview. She warmly welcomed us into her home office with coffee and lady fingers available to our liking. Mind you we had only initially gone to discuss her florist services, and let me tell you, she knows her work! And damn well, I might add. Her work is art. Photographs can do no justice for the actual in person experience of seeing her work. And when it comes to the coordinating, she was on task and always knew how to handle anything that came her way. It was like she knew what I was thinking before I ever said anything. Dee and her team are perfect at what they do. I highly doubt anyone could even come close in comparison. So if you're looking for someone who can and will cater to your needs as a coordinator and/or florist, skip the annoying interviews and go straight to Dee. There will be no worries of regrets! You will love her, I promise!!!!

Brit and Eddie, you were such an amazing couple! From the moment I met you I knew you were the kind of couple I can relate too... My favorite moment is when you brought all your special touches to the studio and I saw them. At that moment I knew we were going to have an amazing wedding. Thank you so much for allowing us to be part of your special day!

Love,

Dee is so amazing, it baffles me that any West Michigan bride would choose another florist. She understood exactly my vision for the big day, and did such a lovely job of creating it. Dee went above and beyond when Michigan's spring weather was unexpectedly cool.

I cannot count the number of compliments we received on our flowers, even on a modest budget. Dee and her team are certainly top notch and I would recommend them to every bride.

Dee was the most wonderful person to work with! Our wedding venue was very DIY so I knew from the beginning that I needed to hire a day-of coordinator. I can't remember how I found Dee, but she was awesome! We emailed back and forth all the time and she gave me advice, suggestions, opinions...anything I needed. She is very responsive both on the phone and over email and never seemed bothered by all my questions.
She came to our rehearsal on Friday night and gave the wedding party, family and I a little pep talk about Saturday and made sure everyone knew what to do. I had met with her 3 times prior to that as well.
Saturday I was away all day getting ready for the ceremony, so I left my groom, groomsmen and Dee with the to-do list: hanging lights on the tent, setting up the dance floor, distributing book pages we did, setting up the escort table, setting up chairs, putting out the ceremony decor, everything! And it was all perfect when I finally saw it that night!
I know our wedding wouldn't have gone as perfectly as it did if Dee wasn't there. She made sure everything was right. And she was willing to have the whole ceremony moved indoors 15 minutes before start time due to the unexpected cold and windy weather!
Our family and wedding party were so impressed with Dee too! They asked me, "How did you find her?!" and just thought she was the best! Dee's husband was also wonderful, helping the guys and Dee get set-up all day!
I would highly recommend Dee to other people! She knows her stuff, she's always calm and reassuring and she goes above and beyond! She probably did a million things I haven't had time to think about yet! My husband and I both can't thank her enough!

I whole heartedly would recommend Elements of Elegance to anyone planning a wedding for both floral service and coordination. Dee and her team provided both floral and Day of Coordination Service for our September wedding. We had a largely DIY wedding and I was unsure what help I was needing. Upon our first meeting, I knew Dee was the help that I wanted and needed. She was so warm, kind, and easy to communicate with. She somehow understood our wedding vision so quickly and seamlessly. I left her house with a big smile on my face. Her service throughout the planning process was fantastic and we couldn't have been happier with how everything came together on our wedding day. First off, Dee did an amazing job with the flowers. She created bouquets, bouts, and centerpiece arrangements that captured my visions perfectly and still stayed within our budget. She was very realistic with my inspirations and every flower piece turned out absolutely beautiful with small touches that really made the difference. As for the Coordination, Dee went up and beyond her job as our Day of Coordinator. She communicated so well with us, and we both felt that everything was in line when it came to the day of. Patti and Rachel, two women that currently work with Dee, actually ran the show on the day of and carried out the plans Dee had set in place. I also cannot give enough compliments to these two ladies. They showed up early on our wedding day and went to work. They worked and worked and worked to make sure everything went smoothly. We had a little trouble with the wind for our outdoor reception, but they both took care of what needed to be done and left me without any stress. They had an integral part in making our wedding day spectacular from the decor to the timeline. Thank you Thank you!

I could not have imagined a wedding without elements of elegance. When we walked into our reception, we couldnt even believe how gorgeous it was. It surpassed all of our expectations for a beautiful wedding. We were so lucky and thankful for Dee, Rachel, Mark, and Andy. They coordinated everything and the flow of events just were amazing. I did not worry about one single thing on my wedding day and that says a ton! Trust me....you will never find a wedding planner or florist like this!!! If you can, grab them up and thank your lucky stars, because your wedding will be more amazing than you ever expected. Thanks so much to you all ;)

Dee was wonderful to work with. She was always willing to meet, email, or talk on the phone when I had questions or ideas. The first time we met she provided an inspiration board from another wedding that I feel in love with. Through conversation, she was able to find out exactly what I wanted without me even realizing it. She created a whole new idea, mixing the inspiration board along with what she thought I would like. I LOVED it. I will recommend Dee to anyone I meet who is planning a wedding. Her prices are just right and her talents are amazing. Whenever people look at pictures from my wedding, they always always comment on how beautiful and "different" the flower arrangements were. Thank you Dee!!

Dee is beyond amazing! I had to do a lot of planning from Washington, DC and she was very flexible. I also had 4 different people in contact with her regarding my wedding which was extremely confusing but she handled it all perfectly. My flowers looked great the entire day and I did not have to worry about a single thing. Dee is also a wedding coordinator and although I did not have one at all, if I did I would have had her. I would highly recommend her services.

Originally, my husband and I turned to Elements of Elegance with interest in having them provide our bridal bouquets and boutonnieres. We met for a consultation and, after meeting with Dee, we were convinced that we wanted to utilize EOE for not only our bridal party flowers, but for wedding planning services as well.

After meeting with Dee, we were completely comfortable with her and confident in her abilities. The value for cost was incredible; Dee was available at any time and anywhere throughout the entire planning process - from start until after our honeymoon to tie up loose ends.

Dee is incredibly flexible, as our venue and styles changed. We had many, many difficulties with our reception venue; however, Dee was there to assist and take over as needed. Without her, I can not imagine the amount of stress that would have been placed on us throughout the planning process.

Everything was incredibly unique and beautiful - exactly what we were looking for.

I have recommended EOE to all of my close friends and family, and would recommend EOE to any bride looking for an elegant, unique and beautiful wedding.

Elements of Elegance Event Planning was worth every single penny and then some. I am a control freak with lots of anxiety (who would want to marry that description?LOL) and Dee ebbed and flowed with all my worries. She was always available for the smallest worries and was ready with a solution to any problem that came our way. We had a short engagement and Elements of Elegance pulled together a wedding that I wouldn't have thought possible in a year! It was absolutely gorgeous and we had a great time throughout the whole process, not just the day of.

In addition to the wedding itself, we also had EOE do the floral and decor for our wedding. Those two things I was the most particular about and Dee delivered exactly what I had envisioned. She is extremely talented and I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat.

I had so much fun working with you guys! Thank you and your families so much for teaching me about your culture. I have never been part of a wedding so filled with rich tradition and no fluff before. I can honestly say this wedding has made me a much better planner! Make sure you look us up when you are back home again! We would love to see you and your families again!

Dee is great! She actually runs her business out of her home, so her prices are very reasonable and allowed us to get everything we wanted in our budget. She has professional coolers and everything, so you don't need to worry about her working out of her home. She is so easy going and flexible, we had a great time working with her! She definitely goes out of her way to find the things that you want or to make sure she gets the perfect color for your flowers. Our flowers turned out great - she found the perfect purple Dahlia for my bouquet, the girls bouquets were gorgeous, and the centerpieces were great as well! You can tell she genuinely cares about each couple she works with too - I think I may have gained a life long friend out of working with Dee!

Dee is also a wedding planner, and after our other planner backed out on us, she stepped in to help until we found a new planner. She did this at NO cost to us, despite our many offers to pay her, which was so incredible. She helped to keep me calm during an extremely frustrating time, helped create a detailed timeline for us, since the one from our previous planner left a lot to be desired, and she helped give us new planner referrals as well. She helped us out so much that I don't know how we could ever repay her. There are not a lot of people out there would go this far out of their way for you, and I think this says a lot about Dee.

There may have been bumps along the way but what's so special about the two of you is how strong your love for each and you handled those bumps.

Dee was exactly what my husband and I were looking for. We had most of our planning completed, all we needed was someone to tie up the loose ends and be our Day of Coordinator. Dee provided this and so much more, we couldn't say thank you enough. I would have paid double the price for all of the extra things she did that she did not have to!

I would recommend Elements of Elegance and Dee to anyone. If you are on the fence on if you need a planner or not, please consider her! Not only does it take all of the stress off your back on your big day but Dee's services help make everything perfect!

Out of everything in our budget for our wedding she was the one I have no regrets on investing. Hope this helps and happy planning!

Amanda and Rich,

What can I say about you two?? I have never seen a couple as much in love with each other as you two are. I enjoyed being part of your wedding more then you can imagine. With a AMAZING couple, an great bridal party, and wonderful family, who couldn't enjoy being part of that. Your wedding was filled with some many personal touches that it screamed the two of you. The playing of the recording of you getting engaged still brings laughter to me. May your marriage be filled with joy! And thank you for letting me be part of your day!

From start to finish, Dee and her team were amazing to work with. They responded quickly to any and all new items/ issues that cam up. She went above and beyond what I feel any typical planner would do.

The wedding was amazing, but there were many complications. For example, the weather was threatening and we had to bring in another tent. This was handled well. There was a drawbridge delay in a nearby town, and the rental company was unable to get across town with the chairs. Dee made sure guests were not just standing around waiting, and even though the ceremony was delayed many of our guests commented on how great everything was (they didn't really know anything was even wrong).

I would heartily recommend Dee & staff to anyone. Not only was she a planner, but she was also a support system for the stress of planning and preparing for a wedding. My wedding was more than I could have ever asked for, and this was in large part to Dee' s help with the planning and decorations.

**My flowers were AMAZING!** Dee, along with everything else, arranged all the flowers. I loved my bridal bouquet. It was spectacular. Every detail was coordinated perfectly, and the flowers were fresh. My centerpieces lasted so long that I was able to see & enjoy them even after I returned from my honeymoon!

The wedding was amazing, but there were many complications. For example, the weather was threatening and we had to bring in another tent. This was handled well. There was a drawbridge delay in a nearby town, and the rental company was unable to get across town with the chairs. Dee made sure guests were not just standing around waiting, and even though the ceremony was delayed many of our guests commented on how great everything was (they didn't really know anything was even wrong).

I would heartily recommend Dee & staff to anyone. Not only was she a planner, but she was also a support system for the stress of planning and preparing for a wedding. My wedding was more than I could have ever asked for, and this was in large part to Dee' s help with the planning and decorations.

**My flowers were AMAZING!** Dee, along with everything else, arranged all the flowers. I loved my bridal bouquet. It was spectacular. Every detail was coordinated perfectly, and the flowers were fresh. My centerpieces lasted so long that I was able to see & enjoy them even after I returned from my honeymoon!

Thank you Rachel! You and Drew were a dream to work with! I can honestly say your wedding was one of the most elegant and modern event that we here at EOE have ever had the pleasure of being part of. And the flowers were my favorite yet! 52 POMANDERS!!! What an amazing modern look that had your guest talking the entire night! Your taste is excellent and I am so happy we were able to bring your visions to reality. Your wedding will be one that we will be highlighting for years! We wish you all the best!!!
Love,

Dee, from Elements of Elegance Event Planning was by far one of my favorite vendors to work with. She has so much energy and it is obvious she loves her job. I met with her unsure of what I wanted. I simply told her our style and she came up with exactly what I wanted without me knowing it. Because of my budget, I only wanted flowers for the wedding party and family members. The peonies and orchids were amazing. I asked for a very simple bouquet (on a budget) and Dee actually gave me more flowers because as the bride, she thought I should have a bigger bunch. She takes great pride in her work. She defiantly worked within my budget and gave me more than I ever envisioned. She also gave us flowers to place on the cake. I highly recommend Dee to anyone who wants only the most beautiful flowers!

Dee helped us with two daughters' weddings, 7 months apart. I don't know how I could have done this without her and her assistants. From the beginning Dee had excellent recommencations of vendors we could use and made many of the calls and arrangements for us. She took care of so much for us, often negotiating better rates. She was encouraging and positive even when we ran into difficulties. So often she would say, "It's all good," and it turned out just fine. On the days of the weddings we were able to relax and enjoy the day, knowing Dee was handling the details and the problems that came up. She reacted quickly to keep our relatives and guests safe when we had a tornado warning (and tornado sighted) during the reception of the first wedding. And prior to the second wedding, we discovered the church's refrigerator malfunctioned, freezing the flowers. Dee had people quickly go buy replacement flowers and she quickly remade all the bouquets and decorations in time for the pictures and the wedding. The flowers were beautiful. I can't say enough about Dee to express my gratitude for how well she handled our weddings and receptions. Her knowledge and expertise are exceptional and her problem-solving skills are excellent.

I would definitely recommend this wedding coordinator! She was very helpful coming up with ideas for us when we had none, offering suggestions but never overstepping her bounds and respecting our wishes. She also did a beautiful job with our flowers and decorations. Dee served as the contact for all our vendors, making sure all the details were set and helped the day run very smoothly. She definitely made the whole process worry free (and has a lot of helpful suggestions!)

Dee and company provided us with everything we needed to pull off a fantastic wedding day. My husband and I were both new to the area that we were getting married at, so it was really helpful to have a wedding planner that knew everything from venues, to hotel accommodations, to hair & makeup. Dee also understood our budget and helped us stay within it. Not to mention all the priceless advice she gave throughout the whole process, no question was ever too silly. Thanks to Dee, I didn't gain any additional worry lines on my face during the whole year we were wedding planning, because she took care of everything, including making sure all my decorations were returned to me after we came back from our honeymoon and that our gifts and knick-knacks at the end of the night arrived in our hotel room without problems.

Also, she did a phenomenal job with my flowers. We got many compliments throughout the night about them.

Holly was FANTASTIC!!! We can't say enough good things about her and the girls- She was by far the BEST decision we made in hiring vendors because she was really there the day of the wedding to make sure everything went smoothly and we had nothing to worry about. She truly went above and beyond (times a million) every minute of our wedding day for us. Even when we hit a few bumps in the road (no working sound system in the church and no organist) she stayed calm and rapidly fixed the situation. When I think back to our wedding day I am just SO thankful about our decision to go with Elements of Elegance. Also, we were planning our wedding from a distance and Dee really went above and beyond during the planning process to help us out, which was EXTREMELY appreciated! Holly, Dee and the girls there are absolutely amazing!

Dee took care of our flowers and did an EXCELLENT job! They were beautiful and we got compliments all night! My idea wasn't so much the typical "large centerpiece in the middle of the table" look, and Dee got it immediately. She was very flexible and was also a pleasure to work with. Dee really made my wedding vision come to life!

Overall, for both day of coordination and florals we would highly recommend Elements of Elegance!

She worked really well with our budget and even gave us tips for things we could do ourselves to save on cost. Dee really helped pull all my wedding ideas together. I would totally recommend her to any future bride! In fact, my sister is getting married in the summer and she is using Elements of Elegance for her wedding.

Dee is so fantastic. She shines in vendor negotiations, overall planning, budgeting, design - there is no doubt she's in the right field!

I was nervous about sitting down with our reception vendors because we had a very complicated (pretty much a logistical nightmare) situation, but Dee made the meeting a breeze by keeping everyone on task, covering all of my concerns, and neogitating better perks for us from the vendor!

She's also just plain fun to be around. As soon as you meet her, you can't help but feel comfortable. Weddings can be so stressful and Dee is an expert at calming nerves and helping you see the big picture.

Elements of Elegance is wonderful to work with. We used them for both of our daughter's weddings this past year. Our daughter's expectations were very different, however Dee was able to give each of them "exactly" what they wanted at a reasonable cost. Her ideas are unique and we received tons of compliments on her work. Would definitely recommend Elements of Elegance for anyone planning a wedding!
