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

Of all the florists I considered, they got their proposal to me the fastest and it was the most affordable. I did not have a large floral budget, but Michelle managed to create exactly what I had imagined at a very reasonable cost. She was always very prompt and friendly. SO easy to work with!!! My flowers were not only perfect, but on the day of the wedding she helped my mom decorate the cupcakes last minute. Talk about customer service!!! Do yourself a favor and book with them!!

I would highly recommend Occasions by Emily for any wedding or event. I was planning my wedding in Asheville but living in Atlanta so was unable to even meet anyone until the day before the event. Michelle was professional and so sweet. She helped me plan things that I didn't even know I needed to do. She also ensured that I stayed within my budget and chose what was really important to make our wedding perfect. They met all of my requests and exceeded all of my expectations. The floral arrangements were perfect and made the day absolutely beautiful.

I worked closely with Heidi Walker well in advance of my daughter's wedding. She was such a blessing in so many ways! I was immediately impressed with her willingness and availability to help in any way I needed from asking questions, giving suggestions, planning wines, helping to make sure my daughter's bachelorette weekend was successful, keeping me organized about all the details of the wedding reception to being a kind shoulder as I broke down in tears before the rehearsal dinner. She was very much like a member of my family! I am only sorry that our time to work together was so limited. She is someone I would like to grow into a friendship over time. I would highly recommend Heidi! I also worked with Annette during the wedding reception, and I must say that her immediate calm and confidence was a tremendous assurance that all would be well that day. She really came through at the ceremony site when my daughter was so upset by how her planned decor wasn't coming together. She wanted to trash it all, but Annette stepped up and took over. She turned potential disaster into beauty! I am so thankful. Annette, also, was immediately friendly and warm. We had some great conversations and found we had some fun connections. Again, she is someone I am sorry I couldn't work with on a longer time span. I would also highly recommend her for any occasion. I will and have missed working with them. I am sorry that our time has concluded. Thank you, Occasions by Emily and Michelle for providing the best service and personnel!

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!!!
