  • Emily was absolutely indispensable in making our event happen. She was friendly and warm while also being super organized and responsible. Since neither of us is from Durham, planning a wedding here, during Covid no less, seemed pretty daunting. But Emily was an absolute pro, guiding us towards decisions and vendors (seemingly!) effortlessly and making sure everything ran smoothly. We like to joke that without her, we would still be staring at napkins trying to narrow things down. She and her staff were totally on top of things on the day of. She was also really fun to hang out with! We would absolutely recommend her to anyone planning a wedding in the triangle.
