Amanda McCabe of Engaging Affairs made my dream wedding a reality. I had some very... Specific... Ideas for what I wanted for my wedding and Amanda helped me shape those random thoughts into a cohesive ... Read more vision. She was honest with me (if an idea did not fit the theme or budget, she told me) and kept me focused on the tasks we needed to accomplish leading up to the wedding day. If you are a Type-A person (like myself), it can be difficult to trust someone else to take the lead for recommendations and wedding planning. Please believe that if you relax, and trust in Amanda's recommendations, you will have the Best Wedding Ever! She has amazing contacts in the industry (i.e., she knows everyone worth knowing) and the vendors she works with on a regular basis know how to work as a team. This is incredibly important on the day of your wedding, when you need to see everything coming together in a very smooth way. So many guests have told me that our wedding was the best they have ever attended. We owe much of the success of that day to Amanda and her two wonderful assistants. Thank you!

Working with Christine was an excellent experience. She is focused, responsive and had great suggestions when asked for good vendors. Christine is very professional and at ease with all of the vendors ... Read more vendors that we selected. The wedding went off without a hitch and I attribute that to Christine's attention to detail. She created a great timeline that gave us confidence that everything was thought through beforehand. She is very pleasant and easy to work with. I'd recommend Engaging Affairs to anyone.

My husband proposed in April of 2015 and we planned to be married 5 months later, in September of 2015. I knew with this short time frame, we needed a planner! I decided to check with my dear friend ... Read more Google to see if he knew of a good wedding planner. I found 3 or 4 options and sent out an email to all, a couple responses consisted of the generic automated kick back email. I was pleasantly surprised when I listened to my first (of many) voicemails from Grace. She sounded so sweet, organized, and ready to get started. It was this initial contact that really made me feel like this company cared to make a good first impression and we set up the interview. Our first meeting with Grace was wonderful, she left us feeling confident that we could really plan and execute the wedding we wanted within our short time frame. From that day on, Grace worked diligently. She quickly gained an understanding of our likes and dislikes, which is so important when using a planner. She was able to weed out and narrow down my options without me always being there to offer input. I spoke with Grace on a daily basis, she was always updating, asking questions, or simply wishing me a good day! She set up all of the meetings, always arriving early to ensure the vendors were prepared. Grace has incredible taste and always provided her feedback in regards to staying with the style/decor I wanted. Needless to say, sometimes she knew what I wanted better than I did! She really did handle it all, leaving the fun parts for Vince and I to enjoy. Grace is not only an incredible planner, she is kind, genuine, and honest. She quickly became a dear friend, a few tears were definitely shed at the end of the wedding day. Your wedding day is such a special and intimate moment, it was ideal having someone that you feel close with running the show. I gained a lifetime friend. Would recommend Engaging Affairs & Grace if you want a 5 star planner!
