I don't even know where to begin! Emily and her team are phenomenal! They made my life as a DIY bride much easier, executing my vision flawlessly and even improving it. Emily is more than a "day-of coordinator"; she's a rock star angel in disguise. Emily is professional, encouraging, and truly an expert at what she does. She has great suggestions and awesome connections to help you stay within budget. We couldn't have done it without them! Suffering from sticker shock? Do yourself a favor and hire her now; she pays for herself tenfold. Thank you, Emily and Manette Gracie Events!

My husband and I got engaged in January, and decided to plan an August wedding. We are both from Bainbridge Island, but currently live in Washington, DC, so I NEEDED a wedding planner. Katie from Manette Gracie was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process. She let me make decisions and took as much of the lead as I needed her to. Because I was a long distance bride, it was important to me that she and the owner were very familiar with the venue (Farm Kitchen) and other vendors that I chose for our wedding. We opted for coordinating services because I was long distance and would not be able to have the pre-wedding meetings, and I am a teacher so I am pretty organized and creative when it comes to a vision. Katie and her team took everything in stride, and she really took control of the show at the rehearsal dinner to make sure that everyone was comfortable and knew exactly what they needed to do. On the day of, she was absolutely perfect. She popped in when necessary, and helped us stick to a schedule, while never making us feel rushed or awkward in the process. If anything went wrong, I never knew about it, but I also was not worried in the least because she had every last detail under control. I would recommend Katie to my closest friends, and cannot say enough wonderful things about her or how she made the entire wedding process enjoyable and stress free.

It would be impossible for me to express how instrumental Emily was in making my wedding happen. I was a DIY-lite bride - I made all of the decor myself but needed help executing my vision. I hired Emily as my day-of coordinator and couldn't be more happy with how she made everything happen. She is beyond quick in terms of email response and worked alongside my other vendors seamlessly. I gave her detailed layouts for my decor and entered my venue to find that she tweaked them just slightly to improve them - the result was phenomenal. The space looked gorgeous thanks to her and her assistant's eye for detail and commitment to executing my vision.

Emily also made sure the event proper moved seamlessly. She always seemed to be right there when we needed her but invisible otherwise. I am so grateful for her services - definitely one of the best investments I have ever made.

I knew from the start I was going to have a very DIY wedding. We were planting all the centerpieces, brewing all the beer, making all the guest favors, and creating a lot of the other decor. And I was confident I could handle that stuff. What I wasn't confident about is whether I could handle all the other stuff I probably didn't even know would come up because I haven't been in that many weddings before and have certainly never planned one. When I initially suggested a coordinator my husband and M.O.H weren't too keen on it. My husband thought it would be a waste of money and my M.O.H didn't think they could do anything she couldn't. Flash forward to two weeks before our wedding and I remember my husband to be saying "Emily is a godsend. She's been worth every penny." And he's exactly right. We hired Emily as a day of coordinator but she was so much more then that. She was always willing to take emails and make suggestions. And her role the week of our wedding is almost indescribable. It felt like she did everything. Like our only job was to get married and occasionally answer questions. She coordinated to vendors, set-up and broke down our venue, made sure the groomsman ate before the wedding (though she did not provide the food herself, of course) and made our reception area look exactly as I had pictured with very little direction. There were no tears of stress shed in the week of my wedding by myself or any of the bridal party. We were never worried. We trusted Emily to handle the details and guide us on how to make things run smoothly. I cannot thank her enough. Book her, book her now!

Hire Manette Gracie if you want to enjoy your engagement and wedding plans instead of spending your entire engagement stressing about it.

Lauren Guy was our coordinator, and she is incredibly insightful; she really listened to what we wanted, shared our vision instead of forcing another one (something I was concerned about when thinking about hiring a coordinator) and made recommendations that we loved and could afford. Besides saying yes to marrying my awesome partner, deciding to hire Manette Gracie is probably the best decision I made in the last year.

All of Lauren's recommendations were wonderful: delicous, professional and kind foodie caterers, crazyfun band, talented photographers that were professional but not too expensive but also not too obtrusive... well, I can write on and on... but there is a word limit here.

Lauren and Emily gave us so much great advice from day one (even before we hired them) that we knew they were going to be genuinely helpful. Lauren was so generous with her advice, but not pushy. She somehow magically knew when telling me something more would be helpful and when it would stress me out. She is great at stepping up and back! She was always on time (or early?), emailed and called back with a ton of information quickly, and sooo caring and positive!

Our wedding still very much felt like it was OURS, just we had waaay less stress about it because she dealt with so many of the time intensive details for us. Oh, and it ran on time. My family and friends are still shocked.

My day of wedding coordinator, Lauren was my savor! I seriously love her :) She made my day go so smoothly. She was always prompt with any appts we had. She was always smiling and helpful. I didn't have to think and she just knew what to do, so nice! My husband and I are so happy that we hired Lauren to be there for us on our biggest day of our life. I can go on on about how amazing Lauren is, but I'll just keep it short and simple.

Lauren Guy is a god send! :)

Emily was very helpful and responsive!
Lauren was outstanding! She showed up before 2pm for our 6pm reception and coordinated all our vendors. She stayed until 11pm to help us cleaned up and put everything away. She did everything as we wanted and our decoration turned out beautifully! Couldn't ask for more. Highly recommended!

WONDERFUL wedding planning company, especially for the money. Very, very responsive as well as punctual. My only complaint was that one of the planners was sick (cold or flu) on my wedding day but still showed up, which I appreciate at the time. The issue was that since she was setting up, she was touching literally everything and so many guests ended up with colds (me as well) immediately following my wedding. So upsetting. I understand that when you're busy (and you have kids) you are more likely to catch germs and be sick and there's still work to do, but the more appropriate and respectful thing to do would have been to wear gloves while setting up, wash hands frequently, or appoint the other planner to be the one touching everything and just help out elsewhere. I really urge this company to work on their professionalism in that regard. Otherwise, everything else was fantastic.

This is a long overdue rave about Lauren Guy from Manette Gracie. She coordinated our wedding this past February and "above and beyond" are the best words I can think of. We had the day-of coordination package because we had a budget and because we enjoyed the planning. Lauren still met with us twice before the wedding to know what our vision was, that we'd thought of certain details (no! We hadn't!), and to connect with all the vendors. I can't say how valuable it was. I do event planning but your wedding is different. You just can’t know how many decisions and details there will be, nor can you possibly carry them all out yourself.
We got married in winter in the Cascade Mountains. There was a major snowfall the day before the wedding – beautiful, but hard to drive in! We got to the venue hours later than we had planned but Lauren was quickly on top of every detail and sweetly got everyone in line for the rehearsal (above and beyond, not even the wedding day!). In the morning I barely saw her except when she came to the bridal room to bring me snacks and make sure I was having fun (above and beyond)! Meanwhile, she was "making it all happen." Honestly, the rest is just a blur of laughter, food, dancing, toasts, and smiling faces. I know there were unpredicted glitches and fires to put out because I heard about them later, but I had NO idea about any of it that night. At the end, we all left happy and Lauren packed up all the gifts, cards, extra favors, wine, and decorations in boxes that were waiting for us in the morning (ABOVE AND BEYOND!). I can't even begin to explain all that she did because it was invisible to me. Every time I saw her, Lauren was smiling and asking if I needed anything, not once asking me what I wanted to do about something, or showing any signs that things weren't under control. Maybe they were, maybe they weren't, I'll never know! Thank you for making the day so easy to ENJOY!
