How do you have a perfect Manhattan wedding? Hire Emily Lester at Event Management. She was the event planner for my daughter's destination wedding in NYC and it was an incredible event. As the mother of the bride, after I the first time I met her I knew I could trust her, take a back seat, and not worry about a thing. She inspired confidence immediately. And she didn't let us down in any way. She tirelessly took my daughter and her fiance around to see different venues, asking questions, offering suggestion of how the evening might look in each setting, and making comparisons all the while. After they finally decided on a location, she set up appointments for the bride and groom-to- be to meet with a DJ, photographer, and florist. She clued my daughter in as to when it was time to take care of various tasks. If my daughter was stressed, she called Emily and with a single phone call, all the stress was gone. She instilled confidence in all of us that the event was being taken care of and most importantly, that we could sit back and enjoy the wedding. I think that was the best part for me. I wasn't running around worrying about this and that; but actually got to take it all in and enjoy my daughter's wedding weekend. If you're going to get married in NYC, there is no better choice than Emily Lester.

I cannot begin to describe how helpful Emily Lester was in preparation for our wedding! Along with being an amazing bargainer, endless source of ideas, connection to great venders, etc., she was always so supportive and enthusiastic. That was so helpful and we always felt really taken care of in every way!
We had a potential crisis with our officiant, and Emily went through with becoming an ordained minister (as she has planned, but Very quickly - just in case we needed her!!!) That was really above and beyond!
In the end, the wedding went so smoothly and was the perfect weekend! We had the best time of our lives and all of our guests have been raving about what great times they had as well! I would recommend her to anyone for every type of event.

Emily was great to work with and you really get to see her work ethic and how she excels the day-of in stressful situations. Weddings take a lot of coordination and she was a huge help to me on the actual day. She has a very calm persona and was very pleasant and understanding.

We're from Australia and had a destination wedding in New York. The thought of planning a wedding overseas was quite daunting but Emily made everything so easy for us. She did everything from booking reputable suppliers to running the show on the big day, and all at a VERY reasonable price!

Emily Lester is wonderful! We began working with Emily last fall. We asked for help planning our same-sex wedding. (She is so personable and simply a pleasure to work with.) We had a theme (Art Deco) in mind and Emily was completely on board. She put us in touch with great vendors and thought of many details to make the day go smoothly. Emily went above and beyond and was most responsive to not only one bride's numerous emails and phone calls, but she had to deal with two brides! On the day of, we had torrential rain and she managed to keep everyone calm and handled every detail so that we could enjoy our special day. Not only did guests say the wedding was the BEST they had ever been to, but they described the day as "magical." If you want a fabulous wedding, Emily should be your wedding planner!

Emily was a savior for our wedding. We had a fairly large wedding with 220 people, with multicultural traditions. She adapted well, figured out exactly what we needed, she was able to deal well with an anxious mother of the bride and was a soothing presence for all of us. She was organized, 100% reliable and helpful in every way both with preparations and on the day of the event. I recommend EM Event Management and Emily to anyone regardless of how difficult and overwhelming your wedding demands are. Emily can handle it. Most importantly, she is a descent, sweet and caring person.

Emily is a fantastic wedding coordinator. She is professional, well-organized and clearly loves what she does. She handled my April 21st wedding and it went off without a single hiccup. She was on top of everything and always made us feel like everything was under control. It was a pleasure working with her. Highly recommend!

I cannot say enough good things about Emily and her wedding planning business. She was the coordinator for both my wedding and my sister's weddings. Straight from the beginning of the wedding planning process, Emily was on top of her game. She got a good idea as to what my husband and I wanted and she made it happen. Emily definitely represents her clients to all the vendors, and will fight for them until they get what they want. The vendors she found for us were AMAZING, and she was able to get us some discounts with the photographer and DJs. The day of the wedding, I did nothing but sit back and relax, and when I arrived at the venue, somehow everything was not only done, but done BEAUTIFULLY. Her taste for decor is impecable! She prepares a "wedding bible" for all of her clients with a timeline for the event, and every single thing went exactly on schedule. The best part was, my husband and I did not have to do anything! She allowed us to make wonderful memories that night without having to worry or stress about a single thing, which to me is priceless.

My husband and I used Emily's service for our wedding on Sept 2010. Emily was everything we had hoped for. She was attentive to our needs. she was always reachable and always offers valuable ideas and solutions to the obstacles that came up. Not only was Emily capable and experienced, most importantly she was trust worthy. I had shopped around prior to hiring Emily as my day-of-event planner, I can honestly say that Emily delivered every thing she had promised and then some. I would whole heartedly recommend Emily to anyone. As an organized person myself, I am grateful to having found Emily. On my wedding day, I did not worry about a thing, I was just having fun (in midst of chaos of course). Without Emily, I wouldn't have been able to enjoy my own hard planned wedding. Thank You Emily! I can be reached via absolutanni@gmail.com.
