Why we'd recommend Event Details by Edelina:

What his Mom said, "Edelina is a gem! We hired her as our " Day -of" planner / coordinator. We met with her several months in advance and we were immediately confident that she was very organized and capable of taking charge of all details, large and small. She made many helpful suggestions for the planning process and she ran our rehearsal and day of event perfectly. Thank you Edelina!"

What the groom said, "Working with Edelina was a great experience. She is exactly what you want in a wedding planner. She's organized! Throughout the entire process, she knew exactly what needed to get done and gave us clear, realistic advice about how to do it. She's experienced! She was able to anticipate problems we might have both beforehand and during the ceremony. She accommodating! We were doing a lot of the wedding planning from a distance, but she was able to work around our schedule. She met us when we were in town and when we weren't, she responded to emails quickly and even jumped on Skype to chat with us! She listens! From start to finish, she makes it clear that this is your wedding. She doesn't run the show, you do. Our wedding celebration went off without a hitch! We have Edelina and her assistant Stephanie to thank for it!"

Why we'd recommend Event Details by Edelina: "The support that Edelina can provide you during your wedding planning is unparalleled. My wife and I were able to trust that each step of the way Edelina was two steps ahead of everything. With all of the different nuances that go into planning your special day, I cannot imagine not having Edelina as part of the process. She was so detail oriented and thoughtful that I can only imagine the additional stress we would have had if she had not been our planner. She is the best!"

Why we'd recommend Event Details by Edelina: "Edelina deserves the BEST review out of everyone; whom contributed to my wedding much more than I ever expected. Behind the scenes, on her own watch, and when I needed her THE MOST, Edelina was there! Her assistant, Rebecca, was EXTREMELY helpful, as well. If I had to redo the ceremony all over again, I wouldn't recommend anyone else to manage and coordinate my wedding, BUT Edelina!!! She is a problem solver, for those of you who run into any issues... she bailed me out EVERY TIME & made my wedding absolutely worry-free & BEAUTIFUL!!!"

Reception Venue: Rust Manor House, Leesburg, VA


Why we'd recommend Event Details by Edelina: "Edelina is absolutely fabulous. We originally hired her for "reception only" but we were so impressed by her we upgraded our service. Edelina understood our low-key and whimsical vibe which was really important to us but she also clearly had experience with all other kinds of weddings - which was fabulous b/c she had brilliant ideas that we never would have thought of on our own. And she is incredibly organized so you don't have to worry about something slipping through the cracks with her. Edelina is also able to gently get you to figure out all the details without making you feel overwhelmed at the amount of work ahead. She made everything so easy and simple before the wedding with her helpful charts and responsiveness to questions/concerns, too. Edelina charmed all of our vendors - she foresaw and handled any and all things that could go wrong w/vendors (like DJ set up, arrival times, etc.) long before the wedding day. And the day of the wedding she was brilliant. We had a few unpleasant surprises/issues the day of but Edelina was already fixing the issue before we had time to worry about it. Hiring Edelina was the BEST decision we made for our wedding. Hands down."

What the Mother of the Groom said, "We absolutely would highly recommend Edelina. She is very professional and knows exactly what you need. The wedding was perfect and she deserves all the credit."

Ceremony Venue: Wakefield Chapel, Annandale, VA 

The Mother of the Bride said, "I contacted Edelina to help me plan my daughter's wedding ceremony on short notice. Edelina was prompt to return my correspondence, answer all my questions and met with us in person to discuss our vision. Since we did not have a rehearsal prior to the wedding, Edelina organized a quick run through when we got to the Chapel, first with the bridal party, then with the groom and groomsman. We had a very tight timeline and Edelina's organization and direction kept us on task from beginning to end. The wedding was incredible, better than I could have imagined. I highly recommend Edelina and her services as a wedding planner."

Ceremony/Reception Venue: Josephine Butler Parks Center

Why we'd recommend Event Details by Edelina, "Initially, we were not sure if we wanted a planner at all, but in the end we decided to retain the services of a "day of planner" after several friends recommended it. We scoured the wedding sites and all paths led to Edelina. Deciding to hire Edelina was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. In addition to day of services, Edelina provided a incredible, thoughtful advice on everything from seat arrangements to decorations. She is incredibly organized and knowledgable. She was also very flexible with meeting us and was always available when we reached out. On the day of our wedding, everything went off without a hitch. Edelina worked well with our caterers, families and guests. If there were any issues, we were not aware of them. Neither of us can imagine what it would have been like to plan this wedding without Edelina's help. We feel lucky to have had her assistance on what could have been - but was not - an incredibly stressful process.."

Reception Venue: Ceremony Venue: Hendry House

Why we'd recommend Event Details by Edelina, "Edelina was great in helping me find some miscellaneous vendors, but her real value came on the day of my wedding. Unbeknownst to us, the venue coordinator (i.e., the person in charge of the venue, not Edelina) had told the caterer to come two hours later than had been planned -- and neither the venue coordinator nor the caterer had seen fit to tell either Edelina or myself. So poor Edelina and her crew were stuck setting up all by themselves and wondering where the heck the caterer was. Thank goodness that I had taken Edelina up on her suggestion to hire two additional staff because we definitely needed them! But to Edelina's credit, no one could tell that both the caterer + staff and bartender were super late. Long story short, it was invaluable to have her on the day of. And also the prices for her services are ridiculously good for the DMV area. It's so worth it, because something WILL go wrong on the day of!"

Why we'd recommend Event Details by Edelina, "Edelina made our wedding planning process go smoothly. From the start, Edelina listened to our needs and gave us valuable insights on her past experiences. We met numerous times to discuss logistics, status check-ins and she made sure that we followed through with the next planning steps. We even communicated via email and texts as well to get things to completion. Edelina was also there to lead our rehearsal and made sure that everyone was prepared for the big day! On our big day, Edelina organized our venue as planned in our walk through. Edelina helped us remember meticulous details that we otherwise would have overlooked or forgotten. We will always remember Edelina!"

Why we'd recommend Event Details by Edelina, "Edelina is fantastic, she helped us navigate through wedding planning and kept us on track with choosing vendors, etc. (and recommended several good ones!). The day of the wedding we really appreciated the hustle she and her assistant demonstrated, both setting up and tearing down/packing up, ensuring that the entire day went smoothly and we could focus on the joy of getting married and enjoying the day. She will help you as much or as little as you need when it comes to making decisions during wedding planning, which is what we also appreciated. She is also very good at anticipating any problems or issues before they arise. So thankful we found her - we recommend her!"

Why we'd recommend Event Details by Edelina,

The Bride, "My wedding day could not have been what I dreamed of if it weren't for Edelina. Hands down best decision ever. Her personality is caring and supportive, her services are limitless and she excels at everything that she does. She will meet with you in the beginning of the process to ensure your needs are being met and will make appointments to help you out and keep you organized. Do not miss out, she will take care of you and more. I love Edelina, she is amazing at her job."


What his mom said, "Wonderful. You can't go wrong. Gave great attention to detail. Created a workable and smooth-flowing plan for the ceremony and reception. Provided guidance on etiquette and best practices. Worked swiftly and invisibly behind the scenes all the while giving cues to caterers, vendor staff and bridal party."

Why we'd recommend Event Details by Edelina,

"Hiring Edelina was one of the best decisions that we made in our wedding planning process. I only wish that I had hired her earlier! Her monthly tracking meetings were invaluable for keeping us on track and focused. Her experience in the wedding industry helped us navigate some tricky situations before they turned into crises. I am also grateful for her help in reviewing all of our contracts to make sure we didn't miss anything that one vendor might be requesting of another vendor. On the day of, I appreciated knowing that she could work with all of the vendors and take care of the details. I was able to focus on getting ready, the event itself, and our guests. I am sure that she solved plenty of problems without me even knowing about it and the only items that came to my attention were those that needed my input. We got almost 30 minutes behind due to delaying the ceremony waiting for a key guest, and that kind of thing makes me lose my mind with stress. She knew the schedule backwards and forwards and helped us make decisions to keep everything on track without losing any moments of the wedding. It was also great that she could speak to my new in-laws in Spanish so that my partner or his sister (a bridesmaid) didn't have to always handle that. Our wedding day was amazing, and I truly don't think it could have happened without Edelina.!"
