Anyone who tells you that “you can’t enjoy your own wedding” has never met Megan Farris or worked with Event Accomplished! The money that my fiancé (now wife) and I spent hiring Megan as our Day of Coordinator was by far the best money that we spent on our entire wedding!!

We met with Megan several times leading up to the big day and she developed a timeline for us to ensure that everything flowed smoothly throughout the entire day. Megan was always incredibly responsive via email and phone and was happy to provide honest feedback and opinions during the wedding planning process (like how much to tip and whether an idea of ours was realistic or not).

Megan took care of EVERYTHING on the day of including picking up lunch for the bridal party, setting up decorations, pinning boutonnieres on groomsmen and parents, coordinating everything with all the vendors, and gathering all your gifts and decorations at the end of the night. She does it all so that you and your family can just enjoy yourselves!!

Most importantly she does it all with a smile on her face and without being pushy. My wife and I had the greatest time at our own wedding and it’s because Megan took care of everything for us so that we could just party with all of our friends and family!

Megan was our wedding planner and I'm not really sure what we would have done without her. Megan made sure everything ran smoothly on the wedding day and, in the opinion of my wife and I, went above and beyond to make our wedding perfect. She provided a very detailed timeline and met with us multiple times before the wedding to make sure every detail was taken care of. I even planned to pick up the wedding favors the day of as they were baked goods, and Megan wouldn't hear of it. She insisted that I relax on the wedding day.

Most of all she made sure everything got back to us at the end of the night when my wife and I were clearly too inebriated to deal with vendors and transporting wedding items back to the hotel. We also got tons of compliments from the wedding party about how great of a job Megan did.

I would highly recommend events accomplished for any planning needs.

We worked with Vicky Choy for our August 2013 wedding at the Westfields Marriott in VA. I cannot say enough good things about Vicky. She went above and beyond to ensure that there were no hiccups during our wedding events and both of our families had nothing but praise for Vicky and her assistant Juanice. We had a traditional Indian wedding with multiple days of events and Vicky made sure that each day was as stress free as possible. We had a last minute snafu with our place cards for one of our pre-wedding events and even though Vicky was only technically responsible for day-of wedding coordination she made sure that we had our place cards on time and went out of her way to get these to us in a timely fashion. This speaks volumes about Vicky's dedication to her job. She is efficient, punctual and always available when you need her. We absolutely loved working with Vicky and would highly recommend her to all couples looking for a planner!

I hired Event Accomplished for day-of coordination. This is the BEST money we spent for our wedding. My primary goal for our wedding was that my husband and I and our families get to enjoy the day (I have been to a number of weddings were the mother-of-the-bride/groom were running around the day-of paying vendors, setting up decorations, etc). Vicky exceeded my expectations. I know how much work went into the day going off without a hitch, but I have absolutely no idea how it happened - which is exactly the way I wanted it. I had an amazing day, and so did my husband and our families.

Vicky is exceptionally professional and organized. We held our wedding (ceremony and reception) at a restaurant. If Vicky had any concerns about this non-traditional venue, she never let it show (which was a HUGE comfort). Though we hired her for day-of coordination, this service includes an amazing amount of pre-event consultation which was absolutely critical.

Our family and wedding party stated multiple times "I'm so glad you hired Vicky." The day after the wedding my mom (who can be a tough customer) said "she even helped us get and load at cab!"

Bottom line: if you're thinking about a wedding/event coordinator hire Event Accomplished, you won't be sorry. If I could hire EA to coordinate my life, I would be tempted...

Vicky was such a pleasure to work with! We were planning the wedding for about a year, in the midst of a cross-country move—oh, and I left my job to start a new business, so suffice it to say we were more than a little scatter-brained. Vicky stayed on task and kept us organized the entire time, pulling together a whirlwind weekend of vendor meetings for the short time that we *were* in the area (we mostly planned long-distance) and always being completely accountable for the status of god knows how many contracts and vendor agreements. Someone asked me right after the wedding, "So, did anything go wrong?", expecting to hear some typical near-wedding-disaster story, and I couldn't think of a thing. If there even were any mishaps, Vicky handled them and we never knew. We spent the entire wedding day having a blast and feeling completely relaxed.

THIS IS THE BEST MONEY YOU WILL EVER SPEND. Do NOT second guess this decision. Choose Event Accomplished. I actually considered becoming a wedding planner myself due to my detail-oriented personality and love for weddings. I thought for my own wedding, the planning process would be perfect and fun.. WRONG. I worked with Megan, AKA my "life saver". She is amazing and will think of the tiniest details that you would have never considered but will make a huge difference. My entire wedding party and family commented on how amazing Megan was. My husband and I agree that if we did not have her on our wedding day, it would have ended in tears.

We had an outdoor wedding, with no rain plan. WELL, it rained... big time. Tornado warnings and all. Trust me, when you are in the white dress with your hair and makeup done and all of the planning is behind you.. you will not have the strength or patience to make any last minute decisions. Our entire timeline had to be changed last minute due to the huge storm, and we walked away from our wedding day happier than ever with how it all turned out. We even had several comments made about how it was the "best wedding" people had ever attended.

Again- do not second guess the need for a planner or day-of coordinator. Megan is professional, flexible, responsive, tough (in a good way- which you want!), and sweeter than pie all at the same time. My husband and I joke about her fan club that we plan to start!

Best of luck to you, and again- you will be MORE than happy for choosing Event Accomplished!

Our wedding was 3 months ago (May 19th-- sorry it took so long to write a review!) and took place in my parents' backyard. Our vision was to keep it small, but my parents wanted to invite a lot of their family. Long story short, the compromise was to have a very small intimate ceremony in the morning, then the larger reception in the evening. Vicky and Event Accomplished literally made our dream wedding come true. I can't say enough about how thoughtful, organized, prepared, down to business she is, and relaxed she made us feel during the whole process (not to mention how personable she is). We didn't have to worry about a SINGLE thing, both the days leading up to the wedding and of course on the big day. We hired her as a "day of" planner, but she seriously went above and beyond all expectations. She met with us several times beforehand, was always available via phone or emails, made herself available during the tent delivery/ set-up of everything. She developed this timeline/ checklist that made us think about every little detail, and helped prepare to make things run smoothly. She even helped with the coordinating the decorations. I can't even count the amount of times my parents said "thank goodness for Vicky!" throughout the entire wedding weekend. After saying yes to my proposal, hiring Event Accomplished is the single best thing we could have done to have our perfect day :-)

Event Accomplished provided the perfect level of wedding coordination for us. We were able to tailor a coordination package that was well suited to our tastes for doing some of the planning, but not all, on our own. Vicky Choy was an excellent coordinator, who had a business-like approach that instilled a lot of confidence in her ability to get everything done. She kept us on track prior to the wedding, and provided a lot of useful advice along the way. On the day of the wedding, Vicky worked tirelessly--dealing with everything from the last minute threat of rain to keeping track of numerous personal items incorporated into the ceremony. We couldn't have done it without her, and we know that Vicky was a key reason that people are still raving about what a good time they had. Hire Event Accomplished--you won't be sorry!

Vicky from Events Accomplished was amazing. We used their day of the wedding coordination service and got so much more. I had assumed that a day of the wedding coordinator would only really become involved the month before the wedding and just help with the day of organization. But Vicky came to many of my vendor appointments to help me pick out the linens and flowers in order to maintain a fluid theme throughout the wedding decor. She worked with my photographer and DJ to design a time line that everyone was on board with. She was always available to talk and brought up points that I had not thought of. As wonderful as all of that was, she really shined at the wedding ceremony and reception. She not only kept me and the wedding party happy and within our time line but she was also there to make sure every guest was comfortable and in need of nothing. She is polite, organized, punctual, and has a wonderful sense of humor that will put you at ease. Every guest said that it was the best wedding they had ever attended and for those who interacted with Vicky (she was good at staying behind the scenes unless otherwise needed) are still telling me how much they liked and appreciated her assistance.

We worked with Megan from Event Accomplished. We met with three other coordinators before we met Megan. She blew us away from the first time we met her. She was so organized, prepared, experienced and confident. Megan was flexible with meeting times, on the weekend or evenings during the week. She would drive all the way out to our house to meet with us. She helped facilitate communication with my other vendors when they weren't being communicative. I was really able to enjoy the week leading up to the wedding and leave everything to her. She took care of all the last minute stuff and bringing everything to the venue and setting everything up. She brought lunch for me and my bridesmaids on the wedding day and set it up in our hotel room. She drove all over that week leading up to the wedding dropping off mason jars at the florist, gift bags and the hotels, buying little pumpkins to decorate the reception with. All the things that would drive you crazy that week of the wedding, she took care of. She ran the rehearsal like a professional even though my celebrant was trying to run it as well. Day of the wedding she was there every step of the way, but not in an obtrusive way. I have been at some weddings where the coordinator is yelling at guests and herding people like cattle. That did not happen with Megan at all. We only had about 5 hours to do the whole ceremony and reception and she made sure we got through everything in a timely manner without being pushy. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and I credit that to Megan.
