Hiring Eileen for our wedding was the BEST BEST BEST decision we made. We had a 14-hour Indian wedding extravaganza the day after Thanksgiving (crazy on so many accounts), and she and her team handled it with ease and grace! It was truly a magi...
When I was first interviewing coordinators, I wanted to find someone who jived with me, someone who wouldn't make me feel judged for not giving in to wedding industry trends and expectations. Eileen was so easy to talk to. There was nothing but positive energy - I knew I could trust her, like I would trust a family member or a friend. I was also pleasantly surprised at how much she knew about Indian weddings :)
Hiring Eileen paid off immediately. Because she knows what she's doing, and because she has great relationships with others in the industry, she was able to save us from having to pay thousands extra for a tent rental.
Even though we'd hired her as a "month of" coordinator, Eileen was in touch throughout the 7 months leading up to our wedding. She was super responsive to e-mail (and through text the month of!).
Eileen truly made our wedding dreams come true. There are a handful of things that could've gone wrong, but she handled it all! For example, the local pie shop we catered from decided to close the day of our wedding (they gave us a one week notice). I, of course, freaked out and called Eileen for advice. Without hesitation, she volunteered to pick up the pies herself. Who does that?? Only Eileen.
If you care about schedules and timelines, Eileen is your girl. Throughout the wedding day, I remember asking people what time it was, curious if we were on schedule, and EVERY SINGLE TIME we were! We were even ahead of schedule during dinner! It is amazing how she wrangled 224 guests into being where they needed to be.
Eileen not only cares about the couple, she also cares about their families, and all the vendors. Eileen made sure all the vendors ate dinner before she did. Amazing.
We were able to relax on our wedding day - and during our wedding week - knowing she was in charge. Throughout the day, we kept looking out at everything thinking, "Wow, this is our wedding. How does it looks so good?!" That was all Eileen. She sprinkled her design touches everywhere, while respecting our wishes.
Eileen let us be us! She expertly and professionally managed the numerous vendors on site. We've gotten SO MUCH positive feedback on the day, and it's all because of the magic Eileen & her team created. THANK YOU, EILEEN!!!!!
