I always felt she had a perfect handle on every aspect of the Wedding, to the smallest detail. Hannah has such depth of experience that she anticipates all potential outcomes and prepares accordingly. I don’t know what we would have done without her. Hannah has a keen creative eye and her ability to elevate the design elements of our Wedding was a real differentiator. We valued her opinion when selecting linens, table settings, etc. and she added significant value. Above all else, Hannah is a joy to work with. She is kind, thoughtful, and calm (which was particularly important after a postponement and ongoing COVID restrictions). She always has a smile on her face and we genuinely enjoyed spending time with her. Hannah is exceptional. Our Wedding was the best day of my life and we owe so much to Hannah!

My mom and I instantly clicked with Hannah’s fun loving personality and really enjoyed the wedding planning process. While some might think planning a wedding in a month might be stressful, Hannah kept all nerves at bay and we never felt stressed. Hannah was super organized, thoughtful and detail oriented. Our wedding ended up being perfect - from the outside no one would have known it was pulled together in a month. It was so perfect and detail oriented (thanks to Hannah) that one would have assumed it would have taken a year to plan! Hannah also did the florals for our rehearsal dinner, which were absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Hannah was the silver lining to our crazy wedding plans and I am so extremely happy and grateful that we had Hannah by our side. The only reason why I wish we had longer to plan the wedding would be that we could have spent more time with Hannah! We miss our zoom calls!

There is no better wedding planner out there than Hannah at Eloquence Events. Could not recommend her more highly - truly a 100 out of 5 stars. Throughout our wedding planning process, Hannah felt like a part of the family. We started planning ...
a 200 person wedding in 2019 before COVID was even on the horizon, she guided us through 2020 and ultimately helped us create the *perfect* 14 person wedding day for us. She did the florals (which were breathtaking and incorporated flowers from the garden we had the reception in) and designed our beautiful tablescapes. It was the most magical and elegant reception in my in-laws backyard in Greenwich - I still look at photos from the day in disbelief at how perfect it was. There's no one else I would have trusted (and enjoyed) going through the process with, despite uncertain times in a global pandemic. There's no last minute crisis Hannah isn't prepared for, and there's no seemingly impossible problem that she can't fix with an instantaneous phone call or solution. Hire her and I promise you will not regret it and one day find yourself writing a similar glowing review as this one.

cle after another. We had two years to plan a wedding for our only daughter – how hard could that be? Well, a pandemic, a hurricane, power outages, a wedding scaled back to a fraction of its original size and a change in venue the week before the event were not obstacles for Hannah. She renegotiated every contract and was connected to the most cooperative, pleasant, and professional vendors. She even hired entertainment and a wood carver the day of the event to transform the stump of a tree that had fallen on our lawn right where the ceremony was to occur. She never, not once, not in the slightest, ever lost her calm, her vision, her confidence, or her sense of humor.
You might not think you need a wedding planner. But you need Hannah. We were ALL relaxed and happy and had the best day possible thanks to her efforts. Hire her, listen to her advice, and rely on her. You will never regret it.

She is generous, kind, and has the most amazing contacts and vendor recommendations at every price point. Hannah is truly responsible for making my wedding dreams come true. She is a true professional who remains calm at all times and can make anyone feel like it’s all going to be okay. And if you work with her, IT WILL BE. Her organization and preparedness is unparalleled. She thought of every possible scenario and was prepared for it all. When I had no one to serve my cake at the after party, Hannah stayed late, cut it herself, and served it to my guests. She was my wedding angel. I owe so much to Hannah and am surely going to hire her for any event I ever need to plan in the future. By the end of the wedding, I felt Hannah was much more than a hired vendor but now truly a good friend. She came highly recommended by many people and I understand why.

Hannah's expertise in all things wedding, shined through from the tiniest details; the perfect color of cream for the reception chairs, the precise spacing of the fleur de lis on the invitation to the beautiful hint of blue of the napkins to the largest of details, her ability to capture the bride and groom's perfect wedding day vision. Hannah has a breadth of amazing vendors (we used upwards of 15) all of which we highly recommend. During planning meetings with Hannah and various vendors it was apparent from the get go that she has an wonderful rapport with them.

I actually looked forward to our sessions together - something that most brides cannot say! I was studying for an exam for the majority of our engagement and wedding planning time, and I did not have to independently remember a single "to do" - Hannah would simply email me with a task when it was time for me to do it. She took all of the stress out of planning and returned the engagement period to what it really should be - a time to get excited about your new start together. Hannah beautifully coordinated the creation of a reception venue out of our backyard - also a very logistically challenging task that seemed effortless to Hannah, and the entire day went absolutely perfectly all thanks to her. She executed my ideal aesthetic off of only 3 or 4 pictures that I shared with her. Multiple people, including my mother-in-law and bridesmaids, approached me to share how impressed they were with Hannah throughout the entire wedding weekend.
