Elegant Aura Events
I had the pleasure of working with Alison and Liz on my September wedding. I felt an instant connection with them the first time we met and knew that they were a perfect fit for me. I tend to be a very detail-oriented planner and don’t particularly like to delegate, but Alison and Liz made it easy (and fun!) to trust them, hand over the reins and actually enjoy the whole wedding experience!
Throughout the whole planning process, they were always a phone call or e-mail away with answers to any question I had. They accompanied me on meetings with our vendors and site visits and always came with good ideas, a lot of enthusiasm and big smiles. The day of the wedding went absolutely perfectly, and I have Alison and Liz to thank for that. Every detail we had discussed was carried out seamlessly. Liz came to my house to check on me as I got ready with the bridal party, and Alison was there to greet us at the wedding venue as the car arrived. They waited with me as I prepared to walk down the aisle, ushered people to the right photo spots and even helped me Shout! out the mud stains on my train after dragging it through the garden ceremony. My friends and family loved them and we all felt like we were working with old friends.
I absolutely loved planning the wedding, from the day we got engaged through our actual wedding day. Alison and Liz made the experience fun and exciting; they eased the stress and made me feel comfortable and secure that everything was taken care of. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants an amazing and personal wedding experience, thanks to Alison and Liz ours was more perfect than we could have ever hoped!
When it came to planning our wedding, the best decision we made by far was to hire Liz and Alison. We decided to have a very short engagement and were worried that we wouldn't be able to find anything. We reached out to Liz and Alison. They were so responsive! We met a couple of days later and they both immediately understood the kind of wedding we envisioned. As soon as we told them we would hire them they hit the ground running! within 24 hours my inbox was full of options for venues. Within 2 weeks we had a venue! Liz and Alison put so much passion into their work and it shows. It was absolutely wonderful to work with them.
They were both with us every step of the way and they made themselves available to us at all times. Sometimes I would spend so much time on the phone with them that I started to feel guilty for taking up all of their time! They provided much needed support when dealing with difficult vendors and they took it upon themselves to handle any complication. Their dedication does not stop at the planning stages. On the day of our wedding they made sure everything was absolutely perfect! They were looking out after our every need, not to mention they came prepared to handle pretty much anything, they even had heel protectors for me and pins to fix the bustle on my dress!
All of our guests loved our wedding and most of them are still talking about what a great job they did!
Everything they did, they did with a big smile on their faces. When you work with them you can't help but have a great time! I highly recommend them to anyone who wants a unique and personalized wedding, thanks to them ours was better than we could've...
I cannot say enough good things about Alison, Liz, and the rest of Elegant Aura. I'll say below what I e-mailed to Alison shortly after our wedding:
"You were such a calming, organized, reassuring force from the very beginning. You helped find us the exact venues we wanted, hooked us up with all the most amazing vendors, were totally flexible when we introduced vendors into the mix whom you hadn't worked with before, and were always so responsive.
The day of COULD NOT HAVE GONE SO SMOOTHLY without you and your incredible team! I have an image emblazoned in my mind of you basically force feeding me a banana, but ever so kindly. You were on top of all the timing, neither me nor Nick ever felt like we had to deal with anything except for our own tears, our parents felt like they could enjoy the day because of you...honestly, you were a fairy godmother that day. Seeing your smiling, encouraging face opening the doors as my parents and I walked into the ceremony honestly calmed me and gave me so much confidence for the day going forward. I also am aware of all the clean up and such that you and your team did the night of and after the wedding, and we are so incredibly appreciative of that."
Alison and Liz met with us so many times before the wedding and were always organized with their notes and binders and ALWAYS enthusiastic. The team ran our rehearsal the day before and it gave everyone such a sense of reassurance. Elegant Aura is everything you want in a wedding coordinator: organized, smart, well-connected, professional yet accessible, and patient. However, what is remarkable about Alison and the rest of the team is their ability to connect. We miss Alison so much already, and everyone in the wedding party and in our immediate family felt like she and her team were part of the family.
We love Elegant Aura and are forever grateful for their impeccable services.
It was a pleasure working with Liz and Alison at Elegant Aura events. They went out of their way to make sure no detail went unnoticed. Not only did they take care of logistical details, but they were helpful dealing with stressful family issues. The wedding went off without a hitch and I would definitely recommend them to anyone planning a wedding in the Boston area.
For my wedding I was going for a whimsical, vintage, garden feel. They understood the aesthetic I had in mind and had great ideas to help execute the theme. I was told by several people that my wedding was the best wedding they had ever been to. It could not have been pulled off without Alison and Liz’s hard work. Additionally, Elegant Aura Events prices their services reasonably and was willing to work within my budget. This was extremely helpful. I can’t say enough good things about these wedding planners. If you are looking for a month of planner or for the entire wedding planning experience look no further that Elegant Aura Events.
I cant say enough amazing things about Alison and Liz. I am a wedding photographer and have seen TONS of coordinators since I have been in business. Alison and Liz are by FAR the best that I have ever worked with. Whenever clients ask if I have recommendations I am sure to give their name. So when it was my turn to get married having Liz and Alison there was a LIFE saver. I always thought that because I am in the business that everything would be perfect and smooth. For the most part it was but the one minor bump in the road we had they were ON TOP OF IT. I mean I didnt even have to worry one single bit. Just having them there was a huge sense of relief. Eric and I knew we had nothing to worry about. They are so comforting that having them there made the day even better. Whether it was having them run to go grab my bouquet, gather family for photos, calling the band to check on things they never skipped a beat. If you are looking for help with your planning you're totally crazy not to use them. You would not regret it for one single second!! I was actually sad when they left my wedding!
Alison! Words cannot express our gratitude. When we first started planning our wedding, we never imaged how crucial a role Elegant Aura wedding services would have provided. At first it was all so overwhelming and we didn’t know where to start. Most brides will say the planning process is a nightmare, but not for me. I have to admit I enjoyed every minute of it thanks to Alison’s guidance and planning tools (i.e. timeline, budget spreadsheets, vendor lists). Alison was always available to prep vendor questions, negotiate and navigate contracts, provide tips for saving money and help with creative ideas.
Thanks to Elegant Aura, our wedding day was perfect! We had a magical, unforgettable, and an extremely fun day. If there were any glitches that day, only Alison and Liz knew of them.
With the expertise of Elegant Aura, we were able to throw a party to remember forever…a day we enjoyed immensely and wish we could experience again and again!
Love, Jen and Paul D
We used Elegant Aura Events for wedding day management, and Alison and Liz did a fantastic job of making sure that the day's events ran smoothly. Our guests even commented that unlike other weddings they had attended, it seemed like every detail and moment of the day was seamless. I felt like I could really relax and enjoy my wedding without a worry!
Once Alison stepped in to help gather together the last details of our planning, I realized how much stress I would have saved myself if I had only had the foresight to use Elegant Aura's services right from the beginning. It was a huge relief to have someone professional, experienced, and confident attend vendor meetings with me, review contracts, and make sure that all expectations were met.
On the wedding day, Liz kept a firm timeline and made sure our out-of-town guests were shuttled from hotel to wedding venue without any problems. If a member of my family showed the slightest grumpy expression, Liz would swiftly come to the rescue, asking if she could help. She also tended to small details I hadn't thought of, such as finding a vase to transfer some flowers from the cocktail reception to dinner. I'm sure there are so many other things Liz took care of that I didn't notice but should be grateful for.
My family told me that hiring Alison and Liz was the best decision I made, and I have to agree. Our day would not have been the same without their thoughtfulness and attention to detail.
I worked with Alison for over a year planning my wedding that took place last month. She was absolutely amazing from start to finish and I would not know what I would have done without her! She assisted us in every area of planning, came with us to necessary appointments, was there for me whenever I needed help, had a question, or just needed someone to vent to. She also came up with some fabulous ideas that definitely WOWed our guests!! (Living Statue!) She kept track of all the other vendors, confirmed with them prior to the wedding, and then made sure everyone was where they were supposed to be the day of the wedding. This definitely helped me not to stress out!
Alison and her staff were beyond helpful the day of the wedding! Everything was perfect because of them and all of guests continue to reave about what a fabulous wedding it was! I highly recommend Alison to anyone looking for help planning their wedding. She has different packages to fit everyone's different needs and is extremely flexible and will help you out with anything you need!! She was such a pleasure to work with :)
Alison at Elegant Aura is a pleasure to work with from a vendor's perspective. She is organized, creative and easy to work with!
