Why we'd recommend Event Details by Edelina: "Edelina was a big help for our wedding. For starters, Edelina was attentive and efficient. In addition, she was very punctual at responding to emails and phone calls. She gave great advice about where to go to find wedding contractors. She was the one who found our photographer, hair stylist and make-up professional which were all very good. She also provided me tips on how to negotiate with wedding vendors. Overall, her help was quite a lot of work, which required great multi-tasking skills and patience. Edelina also has a lot of experience and connections. She is a good go-to person and with all her help, we were able to come up with a wedding plan that was within our budget. If you are uncertain about the investment in a wedding coordinator, Edelina is worth every penny, and then some. I cannot say enough good things about our experience!"

Why we'd recommend Event Details by Edelina: "My wife and I met Edelina at a local bridal show last year. We had been researching wedding planners prior to the show and spoke with another at the show. Edelina stood out from the others and it was an easy decision to choose her as our wedding planner. This proved to be one of the best decisions in our wedding planning process - Edelina is very knowledgeable of the wedding industry in the area, high energy, and extremely personable. She took the time to get to know us and understand what we wanted in our wedding and was able to provide recommendations that reduced the cost of the wedding while meeting our needs. I highly recommend Event Details by Edelina."

When I met Edelina at a good friends wedding a year prior to our engagement I was blown away on how amazing and professional she was. When Stephen and I became engaged, we also quickly realized we had little knowledge of all the itty bitty details that goes into wedding planning. It was a no brainer to hire her and her expertise! Edelina was always either a text or email away for ANYTHING, no matter how early or late in the day it was. We met several times to see where we were with our planning. She had a spreadsheet to keep us all on track and organized leading up to our big day! She worked extremely hard to make sure that we were understanding all our of contracts (helped review before we signed), found the best "deals" for everything down to the name place cards, and was just a great person to bounce ideas off of. Edelina was also my day of coordinator and I can not thank her enough for making our day PERFECT and without a glitch. It rained as they were setting up the ceremony so she came to me and asked if we should move it inside and see if the rain passed. Everything was moved in, then the sun came out and she came back to me and asked what to do. I said "Is it possible to move back outside?" She replied, "Of course!" Edelina worked with the venue hand in hand throughout the evening all the way to the final clean up after our fairytale wedding! I would recommend Edelina to any bride who wants professional and personable service!"

What his mom said, "Edelina did a wonderful job on my son's wedding. They wanted to handle the details themselves, but they didn't necessarily know what they didn't know. Edelina watched over them, counseled them and then was there on the "day of" to make sure the plan worked to a tee. The day was perfect and a lot of the credit goes to Edelina."

Why we'd recommend Event Details by Edelina, "I hired Edelina six months out from my wedding. She went above and beyond to help me stay organized, think through numerous details, and was supportive every step of the way. We definitely required a lot of her - we had two ceremonies in one day and there was a parade happening in the city on the same day as our wedding. She was able to execute everything we asked of her and more. She's very responsive to emails, professional, and thoughtful. My venue told me I didn't need a coordinator and in hindsight, there's no way I didn't need Edelina. I could not have enjoyed my wedding day without her ensuring that the run of show went as planned. I wouldn't think twice about hiring her again. Highly recommend."

Why we'd recommend Event Details by Edelina, "HIRE EDELINA! I recently got married in DC and while I wanted to control most things, I knew I needed a coordinator to help me manage all the details. Edelina pays extreme attention to detail, and scheduled regular calls to see where I was at, keeping a checklist to remind me when something needed to get done. She also responds to emails almost immediately--it's seriously impressive and puts a stressed brides mind at ease! Additionally she was able to recommend vendors, and any of those vendors I reached out to would all say the same thing--you picked an amazing wedding coordinator! A few weeks before my wedding I was distraught about not being able to find a reasonably priced calligrapher and Edelina immediately gave me recommendations within my budget. I cannot express how happy I am with her services."

Why we'd recommend Event Details by Edelina, "Edelina was the MVP of our wedding planning process! She helped us find vendors that fit into our budget and vision and saved us thousands of dollars. Edelina kept us on track throughout and made sure we were doing things on time. When prices were going up, sales were happening, or deadlines were approaching, she always made sure we knew. She set up new accounts to get vendor discounts when we were interested in a new place she hadn't used before. She was responsive, personable, and her help was extremely valuable!"
