Initially I booked Elaine & Lee for just day of coordination. However planning from out of state during covid became incredibly overwhelming, so I called our coordinator Kristin and asked if she could step in earlier. She immediately eased my...
mind, and said that whatever I needed she would be happy to help with! We decided to book her for “month of” services and I am so happy we did! She handled everything with our vendors, was available anytime I texted her, and made sure everything ran smoothly on our wedding day! Kristin from Elaine & Lee is absolutely fabulous, and I could not recommend her more! Thanks Kristin for making our day perfect, we love you!

We honestly had a bit of a rough start with Elaine & Lee, but it was not their fault. We had a horrible Day of Coordinator who disappeared on us and eventually was no longer at the company, but they replaced her with Kristin who was AMAZING. I ...
honestly could not have asked for someone better to help us through the final month. She was always available and responsive and really went above and beyond what I thought a Day of Coordinator would be doing. My ceremony started on time thanks to her (to the chagrin of my friend who was late and was positive weddings never start on time)! My wedding ran so smoothly and was the absolute perfect day. My sister had hired a full on wedding planner for her wedding, and Kristin doing DOC was better than my sisters full on planner. I don't recommend planning/getting married in the middle of a pandemic, but Kristin truly eased my mind every step of the way and made my day perfect. I couldn't have imagined my day without her! Kristin, you're the real MVP!

y and effectively, which was amazing considering there were 20+ people in the wedding party. Morning of my wedding, my dad tested positive for COVID. Kristin was the first phone call I had to make; she kept me calm and helped figure out alternatives. I ended up able to have a special moment with my dad (from a social distance) before I walked down the aisle. My ceremony started on time thanks to her! Oh also, she helped my mom bustle my dress. :')
My wedding ran so smoothly; my family still raves about her. I don't recommend planning/getting married in the middle of a pandemic, but Kristin truly eased my mind every step of the way and made my day perfect. I couldn't have imagined my day without her!! THANKS, KRISTIN!

My son and his bride got married in the big barn. I was nervous that they weren’t going to be able to flip the room for the reception in an hour and they did !!! We had cocktails in the same barn until we were all escorted for the reception. Annie is an excellent choice if you need a wedding coordinator. I highly recommend her.

my wife and I feel worried that our wedding was not going to turn out exactly as we had hoped it would. That was all thanks to Annie’s truly professional work. We had many family members who had the chance to interact with Annie tell us that she made them feel just as important as she made us feel. Annie was selfless, prompt in her communications, and extremely organized. She understands the most important needs of a wedding and knows how to execute her plans flawlessly. I would HIGHLY recommend Annie’s wedding coordination services to any couple looking for a true professional. Thank you, Annie, from the bottom of my heart for making my wife and I’s wedding so special!

I planned my wedding in just TWO MONTHS.. so their commitment to keeping me relaxed was an extreme blessing to me during that time.

Annie was great about giving me and Travis room to be present with our people, but at the same time gently letting us know when it was time for the next thing to start.
