EAP far exceeded expectations

Reviewed on 10/25/2015

Christine (owner of EAP) came as a recommendation from a friend. However, my friend only used EAP's services on the day of her wedding, but at the time my fiance and I were looking for someone to guide us throughout the entire process. From the moment we met Christine, we... Read More could tell she knew her stuff. She was knowledgeable, straightforward and seemed easy to work with. So, we hired her and it was without a doubt the best decision we could have made. Our venue (which we had booked before hiring EAP) turned out to be very difficult to work with. They were in the process of a mgmt change and things were all over the place. I'm really not sure what we would have done without Christine. She handled the majority of the calls, sent in depth emails, called the venue out on industry standards that we knew nothing about and made us feel incredibly protected. Our venue made nothing in the process easy - and Christine spent hours upon hours dealing with them and assuring us that she would handle it all. But Christine did more than just handle it all, she went above and beyond with EVERYTHING. I can't imagine how many hours she spent on our wedding and in the end she helped make it what all of our friends say was one of the most beautiful weddings they've ever attended. Christine also helped us source and choose the majority of our vendors. Each and every one was professional, talented and worked with us to deliver everything we asked for and more. On the wedding day itself, Christine and her team multi-tasked like the true experts that they are. From handling the venue and all the vendors, to helping our guests with needs as simple as local restaurants to sourcing babysitters to insuring they all got their welcome bags and favors - my fiance and I had little to worry about and were able to enjoy every moment of the weekend, knowing all the details were taking care of. When my dress wrinkled more than expected, Christine whipped out an amazing steamer (I've since ordered it online to have at home), when one of my flowers bled all over my dress (I was beyond panicked inside) Christine miraculously knew that baby powder was the magic concealer and when the best man showed up with pants sans suspender buttons her trusty assistant sewed them in right there on the spot. EAP helped make my wedding so incredibly memorable - I refer to it as a dream and without C and her team, I'm confident it would not have been nearly as incredible as it was. I'm so grateful to C and her team they're pretty amazing!


Best Money We Spent on Our Whole Wedding Day

Christine and EAP weddings were wonderful, just wonderful. We did their "Something Blue" package and it was the best money we spent the entire wedding day. Their team was EXTREMELY helpful in making my wedding day perfect. Christine expertly handled timing, schedules,... Read More vendors, photographers, family, guests, and unexpected events in order to make sure the entire day went smoothly. We got married at a different location than our reception, and everything from the ceremony, to the transportation, to the dinner and dancing went perfectly. Christine not only created this perfection, she allowed me to relax knowing someone so competent was orchestrating the day - that way I could focus on getting married and being with guests. I really cannot imagine our wedding day going nearly as perfect as it did without Christine. You will NOT regret booking Christine for a second - she and her team are amazing. They were our favorite vendors of the entire wedding!

Christine and team are the best!! My husband and I hired EAP as a partial planner for our wedding day. We wanted to be able to enjoy our wedding day without stress and Christine and team over delivered. EAP was a part of the planning process from the day we signed the... Read More contract. Christine went above and beyond giving us recommendations, contacting vendors, negotiating with the venue, and attending meetings with florists, party rental ltd, etc. Christine was extremely proactive and responsive to emails and text messages. We always felt like Christine was putting our wedding first. The weekend of the wedding Christine dropped everything for my husband and I. She picked things up from our apartment, dropped them off at the hotel and the venue, all with her twins in the back seat. She's literally superwoman!! Also, we had an issue with our tote bag order and Christine went to 4 Michaels purchasing the last of the tote bags in stock and had her assistants neighbor screen print more just in time for the wedding. If there was a problem big or small Christine and team would solve it without putting any additional stress on the bride and groom which was beyond relieving. Was everything the day of the wedding picture perfect? Well no, because we got married the weekend of Hurricane Matthew! But Christine took charge, stayed calm, and did the best she could with the circumstances. She even brought an additional assistant with her (free of charge) knowing she would need the the extra hands because of the weather. There were so many things going on behind the scenes that we didn't know about nor did our guests, and we are so thankful for that. It was a whirlwind and we were able to enjoy every second of our wedding day with Christine behind the scenes. My husband and I knew we were in good hands even in a natural disaster, we truly trusted EAP with everything. My husband and I are still in contact with Christine and team because their involvement in our wedding impacted our lives in the most positive way. Plus, Christine is just a lovely and friendly person, we really enjoyed working with her on a personal level. We highly recommend EAP for your wedding!!

We shared some extremely long email trails and she saw the fun dynamic between Aimee ( the bride) and I. She became the voice of reason many times and helped save lots of money on quite a few decisions. I am convinced that we saved more than we spent. Christine gave us some outstanding vendors for flowers, photo booths, transportation, hotels, etc which ensured a great experience all over. On the wedding day we had 3 wonderful ladies from EAP- Christine, Tara and Jeanine between the hotel and the venue which made the day stress free for us all. The wedding day was rainy and windy which made us reluctantly change the ceremony and cocktail hour plans. Without EAP I am sure there would have been lots of drama but with the team from EAP it ran smoothly. They even covered an exit sign that drove my daughter crazy!! While I could go on for awhile I just wanted all to know that EAP was the best and easiest decision we made for a great wedding experience.

Christine from EAP got back to me asap! It took a short while on the phone with her to know this was the planner for me especially with their ridiculously low pricing. Although I had booked the venue myself there was much confusion as the venue had changed caterers which Christine cleared up right away. I was in school and my time was scarce but with her efficiency, detailed emails (hundreds of them), phone calls, vision boards, and eye for design she made it all so easy. She always presented me with top notch vendors and before long I had the photographer, videographer, florist,hair, and makeup stylist of my dreams all of whom she has worked with before which made the process seamless. At the same time she wasn't pushy with her own vendors, in fact we found our own band we had been eyeing and although she had never worked with them she organized everything with them for spectacular entertainment. She had an uncanny ability to be firm with vendors with what we wanted pointed things out to when she spotted something that could be better, but also allowed them the freedom to do their magic. We did it cherry blossom season and her ability to listen and understand my vision for the wedding mixed with her own elegant design ideas and choices made my wedding even more than I could have imagined or hoped. I had met Janine her partner at the florist a couple weeks before the wedding and the way they communicated and went over all the last minute details left us with nothing to worry about come wedding day . Wedding day Christine went to the venue and scouted out everything making sure every last detail went as planned and made our dream outdoor ceremony a reality. Janine from EAP ran things at the Plaza where we got ready. Timing Timing Timing on point. We didn't have to worry about anything ...they did so much behind the scenes finding my husband's lost tie, laying out all my stuff in photo ready fashion, handling my bouquet, rings, followed by a first look to die for. There are so many details and things that could have gone wrong wedding day that they fixed without me even knowing it. They watched over the gift box like hawks which was all conveniently packaged for me when we left for the night. After the wedding I cannot tell you how many compliments I got on each and every vendor. From the details on the tables crafted by the florist and Christine, to the hanging lights throughout the glass house, to the band who had us dancing all night, to the amazing highlight video, to how elegant everything was without being over done. I was told by all if not most at my wedding that it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever seen. I was so at ease and carefree the entire night and had so much fun planning it. Christine and Janine are so fun and are so good with people. You can feel how much they love what they do and it shows with the care they show toward their clients making you feel special and comfortable every step of the way. Without any reservations or hesitations when doing a wedding in New York they are an absolute must! You will not be disappointed! Thank you for everything- Love the Grists
