I highly recommend hiring Ali of Engaging Events if you want a picture perfect wedding.After interviewing countless planners, I instantly knew after meeting Ali she was “the one” Just as important as marrying the perfect man,is choosing that perfect planner to make all your dreams come true.Her energy, personality and over all demurer made me confident that she was my planner. Being a completed control freak (& a little compulsive)I was concerned that no one would be able to keep up, or make me happy. Ali got my vision. She was responsive, very detailed oriented, and organized! She never said no. She some how managed to take all my crazy ideas and implement them in real life. No request was too crazy, no idea was ever impossible. She took my vision and made it a reality. She planned the most fabulous glam wedding, in just 4 short months.I hired her for the complete package, as she also created the most memorable rehearsal dinner and event 3 days leading up to my wedding. She never ceased to amaze me with the details she was able to pull off, or the impossible requests she made possible. She even had a few surprises up her sleeve for me! Literally she thought of EVERYTHING,from guest gifts,to little personal touches everywhere that she knew was so important to me.Guests are still gushing about our fairytale come to life.She kept my stress levels to an ultimate low(my husband loved that) she stayed within our budget (He REALLY loved that)She hustled to get us the best possible deals, and she was constantly in contact and communication about every aspect of my big day. I honestly don’t know what I would have done without her!(Okay, I lied. I probably wouldn’t have gotten married as my husband probably wouldn’t have been able to deal with “Bridezilla”)Everyone warns you of all the stress of wedding planning, but honestly, having Ali on my team and most importantly by my side, made this process seamless for me. I would hire her 100X's over,completely worth every penny!!!

Ali was awesome! Our wedding was amazing and we couldn't have done it without her. She kept me calm throughout the process and was so much fun to work with.

We had interviewed a few planners before we chose Ali - she was the one we clicked with the most and I knew her upbeat personality would be just what we needed. Her vendor recommendations were fantastic - I would have never found my perfect florist and invitation designer without her.

As an example of how it doesn't get any better then Ali - the night of our rehearsal dinner Ali showed up at the hotel a bit early and came up to our room to check on us. We needed to be out the door in just a few minutes and neither of us was near ready and I was starting to panic a bit. Ali asked what we needed and proceeded to iron my husband's shirt. Seriously! I calmed down immediately and we made it out on time...and everything else that weekend was like that, exactly on time!

As I approach my first wedding anniversary I realize now more than ever how valuable Ali's help was with our wedding.
I look back on our photos and our video and my husband I chat about the day. It was seamless, perfect, beautiful, relaxed, elegant, totally organized and most importantly FUN! This is how the entire year leading up to our wedding and the entire planning process was with Ali!

There were mistakes made by vendors (it is inevitable) but before I even knew Ali had it handled and smoothed over, never ever did she say on my wedding day oh there is a problem, it was just hey this happened its handled but I thought you should know.

My husband and I had a blast on our wedding day and we had no worries because we knew we were in good hands with Ali and her team.
Ali is amazing, organized, creative, classy, calm, fun, enthusiastic and treats every wedding with the kind of detail and passion as if it were her own.
If I could give Engaging Events and Ali Phillips more stars I would! She is amazing!

Ali is a fabulous wedding planner! We asked Ali to plan our wedding over 1.5 years before our wedding. She made the time and planning so enjoyable, working on our schedule as we were out of town!

Her creativity and suggestions were always thoughtful and fun, keeping out style in mind. The days before the wedding were hectic, but Ali made sure everything was accounted for (including our crazy wedding guests!) and I was calm. We couldn't have asked for more! Despite snafus, Ali got everything to work out perfectly! We love Ali!! She's more than our wedding planner, and anyone who hires her will not be disappointed!
