Why do you see yourself as being Modern, Vintage, Classic, or Eclectic?
I'm mostly drawn to modern ascetics, but love playing with all styles and usually end up with an eclectic result. Mixing textures, styles and designs is such a fun way to highlight each couple's personal preferences and makes it entirely unique to them! That is my goal, to highlight and personalize each couples style in every wedding we design.
What is your favorite wedding detail you've ever seen or created?
Anything that personalizes the wedding to match our couple's love story is our favorite detail! Specifically, we had a client who loved to brew beer, and had a family member that had a brewery. That family member sent hops from the brewery to be used in custom chocolate truffles that served as a sweet treat for their guests following their dinner.
What is your favorite store or brand?
Admittedly, I spend most of my time at Target. Target never lets me down, there is something for everyone here and I end up with way more than I went in for! I also love Ann Taylor Loft, I get lost in there every time.
What advice do you have for a newly engaged couple?
Enjoy this time! Your engagement is a time for fun and starting to build the foundation for your future life with your partner in marriage. Don't let the details overwhelm you (you can confidently trust us to handle those for you), remember that a wedding is the beginning of a marriage, your family and friends are there to support you in this beginning. They want to celebrate! They won't remember some of those details you fretted about, but they will remember the amazing experiences we'll help you curate, making memories that will be talked about for years and years to come.
What is your favorite thing about weddings?
Our favorite thing about weddings are the relationships that we build with our clients. Clients become friends and we end up celebrating their love story right alongside their family and friends! Nothing fills my heart more than leaving our clients wedding day with lifelong friends.
What qualities do you possess that enable you to work well with brides and grooms?
We take pride in our fun personality that is contagious! Here at ESW we also have years of experience and hundreds of weddings under our belt and we aim to offer experience based guidance, unrivaled service and complete attention to every detail. Our calm problem-solving demeanor allows clients to feel at ease on wedding day. We chose to take a limited number of clients each year to focus on an intimate planning journey for each of our couples focused entirely on each of our couples preference and priorities. No two of our weddings will be the same, and that's how we like it!
What steps do you take to ensure that your clients will have amazing wedding days when working with you?
We think your experience planning your wedding is as important as your experience on your wedding day. We are committed to giving you a fun, educational and thorough planning journey, culminating with an incredible experience for you and your family and friends to remember for a lifetime! We do this through continual and abundant communication (with you our client and your chosen creative vendor team), guidance and direction that matches your preferences + priorities, and being a timely doer-of-things big and small that need to get accomplished. Communication is also a main component to a successful wedding day. We know ensuring details are logistics are over-communicated to your creative vendor team will achieve a seamless event. As well as working as a team with your selected vendors to provide you a day better than you could have imagined.
