Michelle was wonderful from our first meeting until the minute we said good bye at the reception. Her attention to detail and understanding our needs was perfect! I loved having her take care of all the wedding details as well as the flowers! She understood what our daughter wanted in floral arrangements and they were perfect!!

Occasions by Emily is by far the best decision I made during my entire wedding. I remember having a FaceTime conversation with Emily several months after I got engaged, and made the decision to hire a wedding coordinator (yes, the wonderful thing about this company is not only are they a florist but they also have staff that will coordinate your wedding...amazing!). Emily made me feel so at ease, and not to mention such a lovely person. She really seemed to care and want to give me everything I wanted in my wedding. After I met Michelle (my day of wedding coordinator), I knew that we were "meant to be"! She is sweet, loving, hard working, has excellent professionalism, communicates well, and most importantly, I TRUSTED her. She was there for me with whatever I needed. She assisted with coordinating the overall design of my wedding, including the florals. When I saw the florals the day of our wedding, I wanted to cry they were so beautiful! She completely understood my look and vision. It was such an easy process, and everything was perfect and beautiful. I was able to enjoy my wedding, and take advantage of every second because I knew she would take care of everything (and she did!!!!). My guests continue to rave about the wedding day and how beautiful everything was... I could not done it without ObyE! Thank you so much, Michelle and Emily... such sweet and lovely women!!

We used Occasions by Emily for our wedding planner and our florist at our October 25, 2014 wedding.

Michelle oversaw the wedding planner and the floral plan. She was very easy going and professional at all times. She made me feel very comfortable and assured me that my requests would be met. They were met and exceeded on all fronts!

Tania was the associate planner and worked with me from beginning to end! Tania was awesome!! She and I talked on the phone several times and were in constant communication via email or texting. Tania was extremely organized and was very quick to respond to any texts. She made my wedding weekend stress free and I was able to enjoy every minute of it! Tania also made sure my wine glass was always full during photos, another plus!!!!

We also got our flowers through Occasions by Emily and they were beautiful. I had 2-3 phone conversations with Michelle and shared with her the many ideas I found on Pinterest, the floral team nailed it! Everything was exactly what I had wanted and within my budget.

Asheville was a destination wedding for us and working with Occasions by Emily made the planning and preparation stress free. We were able to enjoy our wedding weekend with no worry or issues. They made our wedding perfect!!!

Occassions by Emily was the most amazing part of my daughter's wedding. Tania Reid was our primary coordinator and Michelle helped with a lot of the behind the scenes details. They thought of everything and planned every detail in such an amazing manner. They listened to what we wanted and made it all work seamlessly. They made the planning pleasurable and the wedding day perfect. We were able to relax and truly enjoy the day because they took care of all the details and I never needed to wonder whether anything would be overlooked. This team of ladies are true professionals and do an amazing job. I highly recommend them for ANY events, whether big or small. They are absolutely the best.

Our flowers were amazing! Occasions by Emily gave us great suggestions of what would work best in our budget. On the day if not only did they deliver flowers to our venue but also made a detour to drop off our personal flowers at the location where the bridesmaids were getting ready. Highly recommend Occasions by Emily! Very easy to work with, very professional!

When thinking about my wedding day I knew I wanted someone to help my wedding run smoothly and effectively. We decided to use Occasions by Emily for their Day of Coordination services. I cannot say enough good things about Michelle! From the moment we met I knew that she had our best interests at heart and understood the vision for our wedding day. Michelle was absolutely wonderful to work with- she always was on hand to respond to my emails and questions, she confirmed with our vendors, and made sure everyone was where they were suppose to be on the day of. I would highly recommend Occasions by Emily for their Day of Coordination services for any couple getting married in the Asheville area!

The team at Occasions by Emily created the day of my dreams! They are the perfect blend of professionalism with a personal touch. Our wedding would not have been the perfect day that it was without our coordinator Tania. She made sure everything came together in the way that we wanted. Emily has a talent for floral arrangements beyond words. My husband and I will always remember our beautiful wedding day which was made possible by these professional ladies who are clearly devoted to their craft. Literally everyone who was at our wedding has told us what a great time they had & that it was the best wedding they've ever been to. Occasions by Emily does a fabulous job of keeping you on track during the planning process in a helpful, un-nagging way. They know how to make things happen in a light, non-stressful way. During our planning process & on the wedding day, anytime we had a question or needed anything, they were there for us promptly. Neither my husband nor I had ever planned a wedding before, & Tania did a flawless job of anticipating every detail that needed attention. We had the day of our dreams (rain included!) thanks to the diligence, professionalism, & personable service of Tania & Emily.

Occasions by Emily created all of the flower arrangements for our wedding ceremony and reception. My experience working with Emily was wonderful. She is so professional, kind and thoughtful. She quickly responded to my emails, answered all of my questions, helped me achieve my vision without exceeding my budget and provided excellent advice. When the flowers I wanted weren’t available, she suggested alternatives that turned out to be even more beautiful than my original idea. I loved my bouquet, the bridesmaid bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages and centerpieces. Just tell Emily and her team what you like, trust them, and they’ll exceed your vision. Highly recommended!
