AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING!!! That pretty much sums up Bill and his team. Bill provided assistance coordinating our wedding about 1 month out, and it was the best decision I made. I am an event planner myself, so I was able to handle most of the details leading up to the event, but didn’t want to be stressed the month/day of the wedding. I cannot tell how helpful it was having him step in and take control of all of the details at that time. The day ran SEAMLESSLY and I was able to sit back and enjoy the most wonderful day of my life. His professionalism, attention to detail, thoughtfulness, organizational skills, and amazing personality are truly unmatched. He is the best of the best and I can’t recommend him enough!!

Bill and his team are truly the best. They made us feel totally secure that our wedding day was in capable, creative, confident hands from start to finish. Our wedding was held at my parents' farm, which is not a wedding venue, so we knew we needed someone to help us with planning and execution. Bill's attention to detail, enthusiasm, patience, creativity, and experience made our wedding vision come to life in a way that I know it never would have without him. I would recommend him to absolutely anyone, without reservation. He should be charging 3x as much!

Oh my gosh. Bill is... INCREDIBLE. He took care of every detail, felt like a friend by the end of everything, was someone I so genuinely enjoyed working with throughout the entire process, and was someone I was SO GLAD to have by my side on the day of the wedding. He just has things handled... right down to having a glass of champagne at the ready to replace my empty one during the toasts. All I had to do was look up and there he was. My wedding was absolutely stunning and was one of the warmest, happiest days of my life. Bill made every detail come to life, just the way I'd pictured it (or better!) and felt like a PART of it, not just like a planner. He also really beautifully balanced working with both me and my mother, which I think is worth noting. I cannot recommend him enough.

Bill was great! We booked him for Month of Coordination and Day of Coordination.

We primarily needed him to help us manage our caterer who was taking too much time and follow-up which was creating stress for me. He helped us with that and also organized all our other vendors, made a day-of-timeline, and tied up all the last minute details!

He helped us take care of some last minute transportation arrangements as well as picked up and coordinated of all of the decorations and favors before the wedding. He took charge of the timeline for the wedding day and made sure we had everything scheduled and taken care of the way we wanted it.

Since we are located out of town, he was definitely accommodating. We did our first big meeting over Skype. After that he was good at being in touch by email and phone. We met up for a friendly Happy Hour which was a great suggestion to get to know each other and eased the upcoming wedding stress on my end.

Day of Bill and his wonderful team took care of everything. I do wish Bill had sent someone from his team over to the venue even earlier to assist and keep the whole makeup/hair/dressing on schedule since we ended up running a little late and vendors kept getting held up at the entry gate. Despite that, WPE managed the ceremony and kept the party moving according to plan. Not to mention, they fixed a mishap with my dress bustle!! And, one of my favorite things Bill did, is give me a minute alone before the ceremony. He ushered everyone else downstairs to give me a moment of quiet and calm which was fantastic (- thanks). They also collected everything and got it on the bus with us and delivered the presents/cards to us personally at the hotel at the end of the night.

Bill's extremely organized! He communicates clearly and is straight forward (which I loved). He knows what he's doing, reassuring, confident, reasonably priced, and a good force to have on your side (when dealing with vendors and parents).

William (Bill) Parksinson was everything you imagined a wedding planner to be and more. He understood our elaborate vision for our wedding and added his own ideas seamlessly. Bill provided sound advice and recommendations for other vendors, all which worked out well. As issues arose throughout the wedding process, it was always easy to get in touch with Bill. He was adept at following directions while at the same time knew when to take initiative.

Weddings can be a stressful time and you need a Wedding Planner you can get along with. It might be physically impossible for a good human being not to get along will Bill Parkinson. Both my wife and I clicked with him right away. He is everything you want in a wedding planner. Bill Parkinson: awesomeness personified; organized better than a 1990s trapper keeper; thoughtful, like a monk that's allowed to talk; in short....you've already picked him as your wedding planner, you just don't know it yet. But Bill knows you've picked him....how does he know you ask? He knows because he invented time travel...yea he's that awesome. So stop reading Wedding Wire and give Bill a call. Your destiny awaits. 203.500.5840

If you are on the fence about whether or not to hire a wedding planner for your big day, do it. Once you've made that decision, call Bill from William Parkinson Events immediately. Bill responded to our initial email within about an hour, met us in person within the first week of contact, and remained incredibly responsive throughout the entire planning process leading up to the big day and even after as we wrapped up a few final details. Bill is organized, energetic, and creative. Throughout our six-month planning process, we always looked forward to meeting up with Bill to see what he had in store for us. He helped to make the planning process, which we were both dreading somewhat, fun and exciting. Bill will take the time to get to know you to ensure that the style of your wedding matches with your personality as a couple. He will make sure that the planning process stays on track, that all the bits and pieces are falling into place within a reasonable timeline, and that you are happy with how things are shaping up. If you want to take control over a particular detail, he is happy to step back. If you want him to take complete control over something, he is happy to step in to do so. We gave Bill a lot of creative license when it came to the decor and floral arrangements and were blown away with how beautiful everything was and how well it fit us as a couple. The weeks leading up to our wedding would have been so much more stressful without Bill's assistance, but instead they were exciting and relatively relaxed. Our wedding day far exceeded even our wildest expectations and we cannot thank Bill enough for all he did to help make everything so perfect.

Working with Bill from William Parkinson Events to plan our wedding was absolutely wonderful! From the very beginning, he was so easy to work with, very responsive to any email/text, and his excitement for the planning process was contagious. He took my ideas and just ran with them. I was so comfortable that he knew just want we wanted and it made me so relaxed and stress-free on our big day. Bill gave us some amazing suggestions for vendors, like our photographer and florist, which took a lot of stress off us and they all worked as such a wonderful team. If there were any issues the day of our wedding, we had no idea! Our family and friends loved how amazing the venue looked and how seamless the timing of the day's events were. So many people said it was the best wedding they had ever been to! William Parkinson Events made our day so special, we could not have asked to work with a more fabulous team :)

I cannot say enough great things about Bill from William Parkinson Events! We hired him half way into our wedding planning. Having most of our vendors were already picked, Bill helped us coordinator the day of activities, accompanied me to appointments, was a sounding board for ideas and visions I had, confirmed ALL of my bookings, as well as designed our entire wedding day. Bill ultimately produced the most amazing wedding day ever for my husband and me! He is extremely responsive to emails and texts, always calming down any nerves or last minute "I can't believe I forgot that!" moments, and was extremely organized and professional. I was constantly asked in the days leading up to our wedding if I was stressed and honestly, having Bill, who took care of EVERYTHING the last month, I was able to actually enjoy that time stress free. I would highly recommend Bill! Seeing friends and family who had weddings close to mine, I was able to fully enjoy the experience because most of the stress was taken from me in comparison to what they were going through. Bill came up with things and remembered things that I wouldn't have even dreamed of! Thank you so much Bill for making our wedding day absolutely perfect and beautiful! We could not have done it without you!!!

My husband and I were so incredibly lucky to find Bill. After endlessly searching for a quality day-of-coordinator we stumbled upon William Parkinson Events and have been so happy ever since. From the moment we met Bill he was warm, knowledgeable, and listen to our chaotic thoughts. He organized every random idea I had into a concise vision that was everything I could not articulate. He was always available through email and responded within 24 hours. Bill helped with rentals and his team turned an otherwise out dated venue into a timeless work of art that was more than I could have ever envisioned. And let me add, coordinating a wedding part of 20 people may be a taunting though for some but Bill tackled it without a problem. Thank you Bill for helping this overwhelmed bride pull off the wedding of our dreams!

William Parkinson Events is WONDERFUL!!!! William and his staff are the epitome of professionalism. Their passion drives the great quality of service we experienced with them. They were with us every step of the way and went above and beyond in every category. What I really loved about William Parkinson Events was that they really listened to us. We wanted to incorporate a Celtic feel on our day. William and his staff did a fantastic job incorporating those details and were able to execute those elements flawlessly. They organized a kilt rental, found a great bagpiper, and even used a Celtic font on our escort cards and table numbers. Their attention to detail is remarkable and they don't miss a beat. The staff handcrafted numerous elements of our wedding day including wands with ribbons and bells for the guests at the church, hand made every leaf decoration that was at every place setting, and even made us a moss pillow. Those elements added a personal touch from William and his staff, which made the day even more special. William and his staff understand the stressful nature when planning a wedding and are dedicated to ensuring your day runs smoothly. They are fun, genuine people who love what they do and it shows in the quality of service they provide. I promise that if you hire William Parkinson Events to help plan your special event, not only will your day be amazing; it will be unforgettable. Thank you so much for everything!!! We had an amazing wedding!! Love, Brian and Rebecca Dower
