Emily is outstanding! I don't even know where to begin. From the first day, Emily was so attentive and spent so much time with us in person and on the phone to get to know us and our vision of the wedding. As the wedding approached, Emily spent countless hours on the phone with us ironing out every single tiny detail to make sure that our wedding day was perfect.

On our wedding day, Emily was so on point. We did not have to deal with anything. She managed everything from setting up the room to working with our vendors, to corralling our family and friends to just making sure that we had everything we needed all day and night, keeping us on schedule the whole evening and breaking down the room and packing up our personal items at the end of the evening, she was just beyond.

Our wedding day would not have gone as smoothly or been nearly as special had she not be a huge part of our event. We are so insanely appreciative for her keen eye to details and flawless execution of our vision. She is simply amazing.

If you are seeking an outstanding coordinator or full on event planner, Emily is your lady! She is just the best! We love her and will use her for any future events we will be holding!

Hiring Emily was the best decision we ever made! She is a super friendly lady who is very easy to work with and did an amazing job. Our wedding planning was stress-free because of her great services.

In addition to doing an excellent job she does not overcharge for her services compared to some of the other planning services we contacted. Definitely worth it. Thank you Emily.

We highly recommend her to anyone! She is the BEST planner.

I recently got married and used EM - Event Management as a coordinator. I have nothing by great things to say about Emily. She is kind, knowledgeable, organized and detail oriented. I truly enjoyed working with Emily from the start. She brings much experience. Working with her was great. She remains calm in all situations and made me feel at all times like everything was under control. Thanks to Emily, I enjoy every minute of my wedding day from start to finish never once worrying about anything. Using her services was the best decision I made.
Thank you Emily!

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.
