ibly helpful through the planning process and was always willing to give insight and advice when we had random issues or questions. Sarah and Nicole met with me once in person about a month before, and I opted for a phone meeting for our second the week before. Both Sarah and Nicole were also incredibly helpful and took the information I brought to make the day run smoothly. They both came to the rehearsal and basically ran it. The day of, they showed up to the venue before anyone else and oversaw vendor deliveries and setup. Anything that needed to get done, they did so that my husband, myself, and our VIPs could focus on enjoying ourselves instead of running around. Once the reception started, they even brought me drinks! We definitely would not have been able to enjoy our day nearly as much if not for these ladies!! One thing I would have done differently is adjust my budget to allow for their wedding planning services instead of just day-of coordination. Wedding planning is a lot more stressful than I anticipated and it would have been 100% worth it. I highly recommend 23Eleven Events!

ettiest arrangement she had ever seen. someone who has done hundreds of weddings thought Amy’s was the best and she was so right! All I did was tell Amy what i liked and sent her some pictures and she was spot on. During the actual ceremony she was so helpful, doing her best to make sure i didn’t have to deal with anything or anyone. She was so knowledgeable when people asked her what to do and where to go. We had no hiccups or delays because the 23Eleven staff was so on top of everything. The reception was in a new venue (I was only the second bride) and the staff at the barn were very scattered but as soon as Amy got there to the time it was over she handled everything. I didn’t know until the next day that Amy had to handle multiple things the barn didn’t come threw on. I so appreciate the fact that she MADE SURE I wasn’t bothered with anything. Even if I would ask she would just say “I’ve got it” and she really did! Walking into the reception was like a fairytale. It was all my thoughts I had communicated to Amy months before. The whole night I was just so in awe. So thank you thank you thank you 23Eleven Events. Truly made my wedding the best day of my life. I can’t thank you enough.

ven. As a very hands on and involved groom, I honestly can say that I'm so thankful we did.
Amy and her crew were such a pleasure to work with. She was very personable and immediately got all the wedding information from us and organized it all and contacted all of our vendors to coordinate. She had no problem with us contacting her with questions or complicated problems that we weren't sure how to to solve. The ability for 23Eleven to quickly understand our wedding and start coordinating all the details from no details to fully running was incredible.
When the day of our wedding rolled around, it was so nice to have 23Eleven there to fall back on. I cannot imagine having friends and family doing everything they did. From setup to tear down, bride and groom coordination and helping with even small details such as pinning on boutonnieres it was so stress relieving to know someone was taking care of this.
Being such a last second thing, I didn't expect the greatest coordination or quality out of 23Eleven, and was completely blown away that their ability to hit the ground running and get things done.
Our wedding day went without a hitch and was absolutely perfect. We did a lot of work leading up to this date, but I have no hesitation in saying that it wouldn't have been the same event without 23Eleven there to help. It was such a pleasure to work with them...they truly felt like family by the end of the night and couldnt imagine the wedding without them there.

Since our youngest daughter has worked in the event planning industry, we originally believed we would be able to handle our oldest daughter’s out of town wedding without additional help. What a mistake that would have been!
As the wedding ...
approached, we began to get more concerned about our ability to manage the many details of the event, as well as arrange all the décor, and still be able to enjoy our daughter’s special day. The fact that our youngest daughter was also the maid of honor, and would naturally be spending a lot of the day helping her sister, also meant she would not have a lot of time to be our event planner that day.
Just ten days before the wedding, our youngest daughter contacted Amy to see if 23Eleven Events was available, and would be willing to step in at the last minute to help us out. Fortunately for us, the answer was YES!
From the moment I met Amy (six days before the wedding), I began to relax. We had a lot of detailed décor, and extensive notes about how we had intended to set up the ceremony site and reception room, thanks to our youngest daughter. Amy went through everything with us, made some excellent suggestions, and said, “OK, leave it to me.”
Amy and her staff (Sarah and Jeremy) took the ball and ran with it. They were professional, efficient, courteous, and so easy to work with. When there were issues with Travelocity with their rooms, Amy spent over 3 hours on the phone resolving it, even though I was the one who made the reservations. When she learned that the venue manager was going to arrive 3.5 hours later than he had told her just the night before, she found another staff member to assist her. Ceremony site not cleaned up from the previous night’s wedding? Work on other areas until that was done. Cut flowers not up to par? Tweak the plan and make them look good.
Truthfully, I do not know how we could have managed without 23Eleven. They took what could have been a stressful day (given the inevitable glitches of any wedding), and turned it into a day we could all enjoy. Amy, Sarah, and Jeremy were always calm and reassuring, and when we asked about anything, they gave us solid answers, or said, “We’ll find out and take care of it.” Set up started at 9 am, clean up didn’t finish until almost 1 am, and they were there for it all. It really seemed like they were family, rather than a company we had hired.
Deciding to hire a wedding planner ten days before a wedding – who does this?? Although I would not recommend waiting as long as we did, I definitely recommend choosing Amy and 23Eleven to plan and coordinate a wedding - or any event! They are FANTASTIC!

The whole day was perfectly orchestrated, and I know this has everything to do with her hard work throughout the day.
During our reception, it turned out that there was a mistake and there weren't enough seats at our head table. I recall mentioning this quietly, and suddenly, Sarah was there with a number of hotel staff carrying chairs over to the table. My mother also reported to me how helpful and careful Sarah was to gather all of the wedding decorations at the end of the night and help my family get things where they needed to be.
I would imagine that it is a natural part of being a wedding planner that so much of your work goes unnoticed and unsung due to how much has to be done behind the scenes. That being said, I know, undoubtedly, that my wedding would not have run as smoothly without the help of Sarah from 23Eleven events. I am so grateful to have had her as a part of our wedding day!
