"My husband and I had a very unique situation when we approached Elaine for help. We were planning a wedding from Germany to be held in the state we met but that neither of us had family living in. From day one, she was very accommodating- understanding our situation and skyping with us at odd times to help with the time difference. Elaine helped us get in contact with vendors, provided excellent recommendations, and helped with the overall plan for the big day. She was our go-to for questions and advice for all things wedding. On the big day, Elaine made sure that we did not have to worry about the little touches getting done. She made sure all our vendors were on task and that everything was set up exactly as we had discussed.
Beyond her skills as a coordinator, her personality just cant be beat. She's extremely personable and always had a way of making us feel calm and confident that our day would be a success. Planning a wedding from a different country can be very stressful and challenging and at times it seemed impossible but with Elaine in our corner our dream wedding truly became a reality. We are forever grateful.
If you are looking for a wedding coordinator, I would highly recommend Elaine. You will not be disappointed." The Hinds
"I don't think I would have survived getting married without this amazing lady! She was with me every step of the way, letting me do my own thing when I wanted to but right there when I needed help. Her suggestions and recommendations were on target; she kept me in budget and on schedule. She is great to work with, very flexible, organized, and quite creative as well. And she knows the best vendors in town! We had a wonderful wedding and Elaine gets a lion share of the credit!" Lisa
"My dad says that hiring Elaine was the best decision we made throughout the wedding planning process. Working with Elaine was so easy. She was quick to respond and willing to help with anything and everything when it comes to the wedding. Elaine is not a wedding planner who makes the wedding about her either, she makes it about the bride and groom. She made sure that my husband and I had everything we needed and that our day was perfect for us. Elaine is great at communicating with all of the vendors and perfectly arranged and coordinated our day. If you don't think a wedding planner is in the budget- make room! She saved my family and I from so many stressors and thought of things that we never would have." Amber H.
"Elaine was great help on my daughter's wedding day. I was able to enjoy the wedding and did not have to worry about managing the day's schedule or the other vendors performing their jobs. She was professional and worked well with all the vendors I had hired. Elaine was available anytime I wanted to talk and she also met with me several days prior to the wedding so we could review the timeline. Great Job!!!" Chris J.
"Elaine was so friendly, organized, professional, and fun! Our wedding was small however Elaine took every detail into account, as if it were a presidential ball.. Haha. Seriously though Elaine worked with our budget and was such a necessary and beneficial component of our wedding; before, during and after. We couldn't have done it without her. Thanks Elaine!" Amanda R.
"Thank you for all your hard work! Our wedding day was perfect, largely due to the fact that we didn't have to field issues. Your presence really allowed us to enjoy the whole experience in a way that we couldn't have without you. I can't tell you what a breath of fresh air it was for me. You're exactly what I was hoping I could find. So again... thank you." Banning R.
"Thank you so much for your help...I hope that will help another bride realize what a great asset you would be. You've been understanding and reassuring through the whole process while still letting me plan my day my way. " Amanda A.
"My daughter, the bride, and I would highly recommend Elaine for event planning. She was invaluable in suggesting vendors she had worked with,was easy to communicate the bride's ideas to, and made the day before and day of the wedding run smoothly. She is very hands on, and took care of little details that no one else would have remembered. Working with her was truly a pleasure." Rachel T.
"I just wanted to thank you so much for all of the hard work you put in to make our day so perfect. You handled everything flawlessly and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect planner." Abbey
"Elaine is the best wedding planner in Nashville! At least my mom and I think so :) She is extremely affordable and actually varies her prices according to how much help you require. So if you're a DIY person who needs a few suggestions on vendors, she can handle that, but if like me you don't want to spend hours hunting for vendors and thinking of all the little details, ... she is worth every single penny! Having her at our side allowed us to do all the fun stuff we wanted, but didn't require us to worry we might forget something or plan to coordinate our vendors. She did all of that for us and more. Not a single thing went wrong at my wedding; that's right, nothing! It was all because Elaine had everything under control. I've been in weddings where the family helps setup and break down. If you are on a strict budget, you may not have a choice, but hiring Elaine and her team to coordinate the day of as well as keep us on track during the planning before hand was the best investment in our budget! Additionally, she provided great resources for planning our ceremony because we wanted to make it very tailored to our personalities. She's very knowledgeable in traditional and modern Christian wedding ceremony styles and can provide everything you need to structure your ceremony." Julissa
"Hey Elaine!! Thank you so much for sharing our day. You did an amazing job. You are great at your work.." Ashley T.
"We hired Elaine for help with our wedding and I have no clue what we would have done without her!! There were some things that went wrong the day of and she was able to step in calmly (keeping me calm was probably her biggest job! Ha) and fix some decoration issues and a music issue. She was so professional and caring and only wanted to make it the most amazing day possible. If you are looking for a wedding planner I promise you that you cannot go wrong by hiring Elaine!" Amanda K.
"Thank you so much, Elaine, for the gift of a stress-free and beautiful wedding. We are all so grateful for the hard work and creativity you put in to make the wedding unforgettable!" Lisa C.
"Hi Elaine! Thank you for all the hard work you did at my wedding! You were amazing!!! I could not have done it without you. Thank you so much for being such an intricate part of our very beautiful, special day :)" Tommie G.
"Thank you for everything. You handled everything very well and we could never have pulled yesterday off without you. You kept the ceremony on track and people came up to me all night and said that normally wedding ceremonies get off to a weird start or things get pushed way back off schedule, but ours was smooth and well timed. You handled the bumps in the road calmly and acted where necessary with thumb tacks and scissors. You kept the craziness filtered from me and the crazies away from me. Thank you a thousand times over." Alix L.
"Hey Elaine! We wanted to thank you sooo much for everything you did for us yesterday. It couldn't have happened without you! Again, thank you so much. You were fantastic the whole day and it was awesome!" Kari P.
