I was really unsure about whether or not we needed a planner because I’m super organized and a bit of a control freak, but I’m so thankful that we hired Michelle. She was absolutely wonderful to work with. I’ve heard that some planners like to create problems to solve, but you definitely don’t have to worry about that with Michelle. She did everything exactly how we wanted, and brought assistants with her to make sure that everything ran smoothly. We met in person once to go over linen swatches and my vision of the event, and then spoke on the phone a few more times to hammer down some details. I really like that she handled things and kept me from getting too stressed out, which is something I’m extremely grateful for. She thought of all the little things that I didn’t and made sure everything went perfectly, including coordinating the rental orders with the catering company, which is something I had no experience in doing. They went above and beyond what we expected of them, including help move the wedding party’s cars so that we wouldn’t have to carpool or call the valet in 6 hours early, and packing up décor and leftovers for us. Even months later she's helping me get my deposit back from an extremely difficult and unprofessional venue. I would highly recommend Occasions by Emily. There’s no way we would’ve made it through this without them.

I highly recommend booking Occasions by Emily for your wedding/event floral needs. Michelle was responsive and had no problem giving me multiple quotes due to my ever changing mind! I sent a photo from Pinterest for my bridal bouquet and she made my Pinterest dreams reality! She also did a great job with providing and installing the greenery for our ceremony arbor and wedding signs. My bridal bouquet is still as vibrant and colorful as it was on my wedding- over 10 days later!

PLEASE use Occasions by Emily!! Michelle is the perfect balance of organized yet laid back. She was able to guide us through the process and take all of our ideas into account. The final product was so above and beyond what I had even imagined--I am so grateful! The flowers/arrangements were stunning and could not have been better. On top of that, people's consistent comment on Michelle was how friendly, warm and helpful she is. I would recommend Occasions by Emily any day!

It was great working with Michelle and Annette. The flowers were wonderful, and Annette was great to work with. It's so nice to have someone on that big day that can take care of everything and remains calm no matter what! And it's great to have the flowers and wedding coordination be the same company. We even used some of their rental items (table numbers, signs etc) that made things really easy. I'd definitely use them again!

This review is for Michelle, the incredible florist and design pro we were fortunate enough to have for our big day. From the first phone call to the big day, Michelle could not have been more kind, patient, understanding, and wonderful. As a couple on a budget, Michelle was willing to work within those boundaries and allowed us to set up a payment plan that worked for our needs. The flowers were absolutely gorgeous and exactly as I had envisioned. We also rented several décor items- numerous chalkboard signs, reception table centerpiece decor, reception table numbers, wooden cupcake tiers, burlap aisle runner, etc. - and they were absolutely perfect as well. To all of the wonderful ladies at OBE that made our day absolutely beautiful, to Michelle for her patience and vision, thank you - my vision would not have come to life without you all!

We used Occasions by Emily for our flowers (Michelle) and month of coordination (Tania) for our small, intimate wedding at the Biltmore Estate, and we are so happy with our decision!

In first reaching out, Michelle was very responsive and professional. (As a side note, I had other florists in Asheville who would not return my calls/emails or would charge minimums for floral orders ($3,000 is too much for flowers for a 30 person wedding!), so working with Michelle was a refreshing change!) During our initial call, she got a feel for what I envisioned for our floral arrangements, and within a day, she turned around a detailed proposal, using pictures from my Pinterest board to make sure we were both on the same page. Brilliant! She uses Google documents those contracts and proposals, so we can both make edits about changes or suggestions. This was really helpful when I decided to change my color scheme a month before the wedding! I made the edits to the proposal with what I wanted, Michelle and I discussed by phone, then she nailed it on our wedding day! I absolutely loved all of our bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces!

Tania was also absolutely amazing! Even though we had a small wedding, we knew we would need help coordinating with all our vendors and making sure the transition from the ceremony venue (conservatory) to the reception (champagne cellar at the winery) went smoothly. She did that and so much more! When the champagne cellar began leaking from all the rain (Hurricane Joaquin) and we were told we may have to change reception venues, she made sure we got our wine-themed wedding in the cellar! From taking over all my DIY yourself decorations (including some last minute hot gluing), to setting everything up (better than I could have imagined), to dealing with our difficult musicians, to having safety pins on hand for a dress tear… I could go on and on!

Overall, Occasions by Emily made our dream wedding a reality!

I loved working with Michelle at Occasions by Emily! She understood my vision, had fantastic ideas to keep me within budget but not skimping on the look and feel, and was so easy to work with. While weddings are stressful to plan, Michelle was flexible, accommodating and quick to get back to me with thoughts and suggestions. I felt that Michelle quickly learned my style and was such a great compliment to our planner to pull together a gorgeous and stress free day for our wedding. Top notch and would definitely recommend them! Thanks for making our day exactly as we envisioned!

Michelle and her team are awesome! They are super easy to work with and easy to talk to. Her team will walk you through your big day and make sure everything is perfect. Best wedding decision I made was asking ObyE to coordinate my August 2015 wedding.

They also created all the flower arrangements at my wedding. I gave them some pictures of what I had envisioned for my wedding and they surpassed my expectations. Everything was beautiful with vibrant colors. When people ask about my wedding and I show them pictures they always, always comment on how beautiful the flowers were.

They do an excellent job of creating your vision for the wedding. They listen very well and are there to help every step of the way. My stress was very much diminished because they communicated with all the other vendors and put everything into place. I couldn't have asked for a better team
