Where do I begin...every single aspect of my son's wedding was perfect and Bill was responsible for that. We had some pretty major glitches during the planning stages but Bill without fail, took care of everything. Bill took care of every single aspect of planning the outdoor tented wedding from beginning to end, I will mention that the bride and groom live in Philadelphia and the wedding was held in Easton CT. He was so calm when presented with various issues that came up during the planning stages. The day before and day of the wedding Bill worked tirelessly with his team setting everything up. The day of the wedding Bill and his team again worked from dawn to well after midnight to create the perfect day for my son and daughter in law. I can't say enough about William Parkinson Events, Bill was an absolute pleasure to work with in every way.

I’m going to try to explain why Bill was the best planner ever without sounding like the total fan girl that I am….I interviewed several planners and Bill struck me as the most suitable because he had a very businesslike approach; he was creative without being whimsical and assertive without being aggressive. Bill was well organized, respectful of our budget and transparent with costs, and always attentive to our wants and needs. When our venue closed 6 months out Bill swooped in with alternate options that would be able to accommodate our headcount, date and fit our style. People were shocked at how calm I was but I never had to stress because I knew it would work out and that was only the case because of Bill. Same for when our rehearsal dinner venue cancelled a month later. When we decided to switch it to a tented at-home wedding, increasing the scope of work tenfold, Bill didn’t blink an eye. When the power went out during the reception because someone plugged a cell phone into the generator, Bill rolled up his sleeves and was on the ground fixing it. He got it working so quickly that some guests didn’t even notice and nobody stopped dancing, myself included. I had said from the beginning that I wanted to have a minimal role in the planning process and I can honestly say that he made that happen. I never had to stress or worry or dedicate countless hours to planning, and every last detail was precisely to my taste. I wanted to show up and feel like I was at an amazing party and that is exactly what happened. My fiancé and I are forever grateful to Bill for making the months leading up and the day of our wedding a truly enjoyable experience.

We hired Bill for the partial planning package and he proved himself to be an essential component to our process almost immediately. As someone to bounce ideas off of, recommend vendors, and help us avoid pitfalls, Bill's guidance in planning the wedding ensured that we got the exact wedding we wanted, down to the smallest detail. He went out of his way to help us out countless times, and is just a wonderful person to engage with.

As an event planner I know how much goes into something like a wedding. I trusted Bill and was able to enjoy the day with my friends and family without having to worry about dimming the lights, or getting dinner out on time, or having shuttles not show up. Bill gave us the ability to live in the moment and enjoy our day to the fullest.

Even our bridal party were charmed by him, and he made sure that our day went off without a hitch.

Thank you for everything, Bill. We could not have done this without you.

Bill is amazing! I found him on wedding wire as the "month of" coordinator - after our first meeting, my anxieties were relieved. My (now) husband and I have said so many times in the 48 hours since our wedding that Bill made the day. If our budget lender to an entire wedding planner, he would be worth it. All of our friends told us how our wedding was the best party they've been to - and the reception was outside (had a tent) and if started down pouring about 10 mins after our ceremony. But knowing Bill was in charge, neither of us worried. He just is simply the best.

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.
