We were very happy with their services. I was very nervous in the beginning about decorating for the event and had a lot of questions. I emailed Michelle a lot and she answered all of my emails right away. It helped me to not worry as much and I felt like someone was there for me.

We had our wedding at our house, so there was a lot of decorating to do and details to be arranged. On the wedding day I was busy getting my hair done and was not around to supervise or do anything. I had planned to do all of the decorating and flowers myself but I had ran out of time. I had a pile of decorations and a laundry room full of buckets of flowers and vases. EOE came in and took over everything and did an AMAZING job! As soon as they got there I did not have to worry about anything! Every once in awhile I would get nervous and ask if they did this or that and they always had. Our wedding was beautifully decorated thanks to them, they even decorated my wedding cake beautifully with flowers.
We did not have a rehearsal dinner and we were getting nervous about the procession, but they guided us through that with no problem.
There was a point a month before the wedding that I wondered if I needed a planner, but now I am SO glad we had EOE and I would recommend them to anyone. The bottom line is, they made me feel like a guest at my own wedding. In the sense that I could sit back and just enjoy myself and they were taking care of directing the affair and making sure everything happened when and as it should. It was well worth the price and makes your wedding day a lot more enjoyable. You can tell Michelle has done a thousand weddings, because she is always calm, as if she has handled it all before, and I believe she has!

Very well organized and did a great job for our wedding. Everything went as planned and on time even though we (wedding couple) made things a bit difficult. Very professional in getting everybody to do what was needed and getting people organized especially during rehearsal. Overall a very good job done by Michelle and her assistants at Essence of Events. Use them, and this is coming from the groom.

I have to say at the beginning we were not to convinced about having a wedding planner. Then we realized that it was our day and we didn't want to be running around like crazy the day of our wedding.

We started looking and saw that you can have a coordinator for the day. We were trying to save some money. I met Michelle at the wedding expo. I stopped just to ask about there service and she was very nice, professional and helpful.

We set an appointment and from there we realized it was well worth it. They listened to our ideas, our concerns and to everything. They gave us ideas and lots of info.

Everything was perfect the day of the wedding. Nichole did an amazing job. To this day we have a lot of friends and family members who give us a lot of good compliments about our wedding. They also commented on how organized, smooth, beautiful and how wonderful of a job she did.

I highly recommend Michelle and her team. Nichole took a big weight off of our shoulders. She was on top of everything. If you are thinking of having a wedding it is worth it to have a wedding planner. I highly recommend it because you will not regret it a bit. We love these girls and would recommend them to anyone.

Thanks,

The Staff at Essence of Events was absolutely wonderful to work with. Michelle and her crew were able to bring my vision to life after just one meeting. Essence of Events kept in contact with me on a regular basis throughout the planning process and made me feel at ease when I had doubts about what to do. When it came down to the final days I received daily emails with updates (and even some reminders) that helped to keep the whole event on track. In the end my Wedding was a success! And I truly believe that I could not have done it myself.
Thank you so much Michelle!
To any bride that is hesitant about the expense of a wedding planner: Hire Michelle and team. They are worth it.

I can not say enough amazing things about Michelle and her assistant. All the things that went off smoothly at our wedding would not have happened without them! Michelle was really great- super helpful, and was even able to help me get a (pretty last minute) hair and makeup appointment! There were times when we were planning our wedding that we thought we did not need a pro, but there's so many things that we didn't even think about, and Michelle was right on it, making sure everything was where it should be, that the vendors were all taken care of, and that everything went off without a hitch! She's a dream, and I would recommend her highly to anyone getting married.

Hiring Michelle was one of the best decisions we made during the whole wedding planning process. Having a planner can be expensive, but it was one of the best use of money in our whole wedding.

Michelle did all the work and running around for our three day event so that my groom an I could enjoy our wedding rather than survive it.

Thanks Michelle!

If you want to work with someone who can see your vision and bring it to life then The Essence of Events is the Company you should work with. Every little detail was taken care of which relieved the stress of planning such an important event. My wedding is still being talked about as one of the most beautiful, organized, loving weddings in the family. The decorations, the food, everything was just perfect.
