The amount of times Emily Baldwin reassured me I wasn’t crazy easily paid for her services. My husband and I hired Emily back in 2019 to help plan and execute our wedding weekend in upstate NY. To be honest, I went back and forth on whether I needed a planner. I’m a creative person and we already had our venue and all our main vendors booked. In the end, hiring Emily was the BEST decision we made. Like so many 2020 couples, when we booked our fall wedding, little did we know we would be battling a global pandemic. Having Emily by our side to help navigate and make decisions in such an unknown atmosphere saved our wedding (and my sanity)! On top of all the postponement and re-planning stress, we were also dealing with an extremely rude and uncompromising venue. Emily stood by us arm-in-arm through all our struggles and reassured us that no matter what, our wedding would end up being perfect – and she was right! Emily’s laid-back yet resilient personality was the perfect fit for our own quirky personalities and sense of humor. By the time our wedding weekend came, we truly felt like Emily was a friend who sincerely wanted us to just relax and enjoy our special day. Emily, if you’re reading this, Hi, I miss you! If you are on the fence about hiring a planner, do yourself the biggest favor and hire Emily.Liz G.
As the 5 stars above indicate, Emily is and was the best ever. We are so grateful for everything she did for us both prior to and the day of our unforgettable wedding weekend (thanks to her). Emily turned what could have been a stressful planning process, into something easy and fun. She always went above and beyond with communication and was always available when we needed her. You name it, we asked it, and she answered it (and if she was not sure, best believe she found the answer). From day 1, Emily was warm, inviting, and personable. She did an incredible job bringing our wedding day vision to life. If you are still reading this review, stop what you are doing, reach out and hire Emily immediately. You will not regret it! Not only are we thankful that Emily was our wedding planner, we are thankful that we can now call her a friend.

We had our wedding originally planned for October 2020, but had to postpone until May due to Covid. We ended up cancelling our May wedding due to the unpredictability of restriction guidelines. This put us in contact with Emily for almost 2 years of wedding planning. She was an absolute gem throughout the process and we can’t imagine how we would have managed all the changes without her. Prior to the pandemic, Emily helped us establish a design for our wedding and was completely hands on in making our vision come to life. She went above and beyond and would have done way more for us than expected on our wedding day. We have met up with Emily multiple times as she always wanted to be there to meet with different vendors and pick out items for our design. Although we didn’t get to have our wedding, she was incredibly understanding and helpful. Emily is an amazing asset in the wedding planning process but an even better person to know!

“I’m not sure how I can write how amazing Emily really was throughout the entire process in this review. It just really won’t get across. Emily was amazing. Once she had a general idea of the vibe of our wedding and our desires for the vendors, she took control and made everything so much easier for myself, my mother, and my husband. She never disappeared and was so easy to get in contact if there was ever a question about the process of our wedding night. On our wedding night (her 30th birthday), she was absolutely fabulous. She timed everything to exactly how we wanted and checked in on us throughout. All the little things that Emily provided and helped with are never not noticed. She was absolutely wonderful. If anyone is having doubts about if they need a wedding planner, the answer should be, yes you really do and it should be Emily.”

“Emily was truly a lifesaver and, through the process, became a friend. She completely understood my daughter and now son-in-law’s vision and worked with our vendors to seamlessly create a wedding wonderland. No detail was too small, and Emily handled EVERYTHING. Our venue (Senate Garage) was about 2 hours away so it was so important for us to rely on Emily. You owe it to yourself to use Emily – you will NOT be disappointed.”

“My wedding hasn’t even happened yet but I can safely say Emily is the best wedding related decision i’ve made besides deciding to marry my FH. She’s so on top of every detail, she makes herself so available, she is kind and cares about your wedding AND your experience while planning. I’ve spoken to many planners before I found Emily and NO ONE did all she did and as well as she did. Not to mentioned she’s an extremely skilled designer! I’ve had a lot of challenges with other venue related elements with respect to my wedding and Emily has assured me made me feel confident that she’ll find solutions to any problems that come up and she has. I’m a very detail oriented person myself so to find someone who is also like minded was so important to me! I’ll write another review once we actually have the wedding but I didn’t want anyone to miss out on the opportunity to work with Emily! There are few like her in the business! Book her today! Thank you so much Emily :)”

“Emily was recommended to me for planning. I had spoken with a number of planners and I just didn’t get that they were listening to what I needed but, Emily did. I’ve realized that planning an event is no easy task especially with a great amount of details. I’ve watched her, within one week put everything together! I could tell she was having the time of her life, in her glory, doing exactly what she’s meant to be doing. She’s trendy, shes fun, everything she designed was beautiful. She even had a glass of rose ready or us! I enjoyed working with Emily and hope she has free time in future to help me plan other events because I am sure she will be booked.”

“You can count on Emily to take control of all the details on your wedding day! She has an eye for style and a hands-on approach–something not every wedding planner has. I knew she would handle any situation that came up, and felt confident when it came time to leave the wedding planning in her hands. Beautiful job!”

“Creative, passionate and responsive are the first things that come to mind with Emily, very detail orientated and professional throughout her events!”

“The best decision my husband and I made for our wedding was to have Emily and her assistant, Karen, as our day-of coordinators. They went above and beyond our expectations and in the end, I was able to relax fully the day of, enjoying every moment of it because of her talents. Emily listens fully and will ensure your vision will become a reality. She worked with our vendors, assisted us in decisions based on our wants and needs, and was a blast to work with. I highly recommend Emily. Thank you for all of your hard work!”Jennifer C.
