“Thank you SO MUCH for everything you did to help make our day so incredibly perfect. We both have strong memories of certain points in the day and night that are beautiful and overwhelming, and you were a big part of making that possible. There is just no way in hell I would have been able to relax and take it all in if we hadn’t had you. Not only were you there to make sure things got done at the right time by the right person, but you were a true gem to work with. Thank you from the bottom of our newlywed hearts. You deserve to be busy and successful for years to come!”

I’m so happy that we went with An Event Less Ordinary!

What can I say? I know I speak for Heidi and Mark when I say THANK YOU!!!!! The wedding was everything we hoped it would be—It was beautiful, warm, meaningful and fun. I could go on and on...I had several people come up to me right after the ceremony and then after the party to tell me that it was the most beautiful and fun wedding they had ever been to. Of course, I had to agree! 😊

I didn’t worry about anything, I was present and enjoyed myself through the entire weekend—Actually I don’t think I ever had so much fun at a party. I know that I have never danced so much... CAA came through and everyone loved the hotel. It was an event in and of itself. The food was super! All of our vendors—Ingrid, Rachel, The DJ (I cannot remember her name) were terrific—easygoing, fun, so upbeat and complimentary. The makeup lady and the hair lady were great! And Carolyn, the day of the wedding was smooth and fun—and only because of you and your assistant. Rabbi Lizzie was amazing—She really made the ceremony meaningful and beautiful and so right for Heidi and Mark. The best part of the whole thing, I must say, though, was seeing how happy Heidi and Mark are together...and how it showed the whole time. Many people commented on it. I have never seen Heidi so happy.

I have NO IDEA how someone could do that without help!!! Talk about anxiety! I would have been a lunatic getting everything where it needed to be, following up on the myriad details, just knowing what to do!!! And we wouldn’t have been at that point without your help and guidance, Amy. All of the choices, the negotiations, etc. No way...You ladies are really pros!! And so fun! I cannot thank you enough!
— Deborah Roth, Mother-of-the-Bride

I want to say THANK YOU so, so much for helping make our wedding day to incredibly amazing and perfect. I had the absolute best time of my life, and I am SO sad that it’s over!!!! EVERYONE who worked with you or talked with you during the wedding weekend absolutely loved you... You have truly found your calling, and for that all brides should be grateful. I still cannot believe how amazingly well everything went; several people told us that was the best wedding they’ve ever been to - and I can say with complete certainty that we could not have done this without you. Thank you so, so much for your integral role in making this the absolute best weekend of our lives!!
— Lauren + Mike

Thank you so much for helping Mike and I coordinate our wedding! I seriously don’t know what we would have done without your help! You were so organized and kept everything running smoothly. I so appreciated your advice and recommendations. ... We are truly so grateful and appreciative of everything you did for us — the day was absolutely perfect, and it was so reassuring that I did not have to worry about anything (thanks to you)!

“Having a day-of person makes your life and the lives of your family and wedding party so much easier...it is definitely worth the cost. Rachel was our coordinator, and she was just wonderful to work with. She is attentive, professional, and makes you feel at ease that all will go as planned. We had a seemingly endless list of details for our wedding, but she handled everything beautifully. Really - not I nor the guests noticed a single thing go not as planned. We loved working with AELO and can’t recommend them highly enough!”
— Alicia + Brandt

Thank you, thank you, thank you for such an amazing job at our wedding! We could not have pulled it off without you and your team. I wanted to make sure you knew we truly appreciate everything you did. ...my mom can’t stop talking about you. She got to the venue a little early just to make sure everything was set, as all moms do, and she was truly impressed by your poise and the fact that you had already taken care of everything.

“Couldn’t have loved these girls more! Carolyn personally helped me chose my vendors, she walked me through my day of, and made everything seamless. We had decided to have a DIY wedding, and couldn’t have been more clueless when it came to the smallest details. An Event Less Ordinary took care of us, we had a beautiful wedding day. Man...I wish we could do it all again!”

Everyone raved about how great you were so clearly I wasn’t the only one that benefited from your expertise. It was so nice to know that it didn’t matter that my head was spinning...I knew you were totally on board for what we wanted, completely invested in the event, and in control of what needed to be happening and when. Every time I saw Carolyn’s face, I thought, ‘Everything is under control. All you need to do is have fun.’
— Lizzie + Travis
Working with Carolyn was an extremely satisfying experience. She is a great listener - took notes at every meeting and followed up via email. From the big picture concepts to the smallest details, she made it happen. It was a pleasures working with Carolyn - she was always positive, responsive, smiling and happy to help. She made us feel like our daughter’s wedding was the most important thing in her world.

Thank you to my Day-of-Wedding Planner! You saved the day!!! Leading up to the wedding, this woman was so incredibly attentive and OCD about every single thing I told her. During the wedding, my mom said she was literally our Superwoman, helping everyone, even those who didn’t ask her for help but she saw they needed it, busting her ass, doing exactly everything I asked her to do, and without question went above and beyond her job.

Sumanth and I had to extend one last huge thank you for providing coordination for our wedding.

I was so happy that I had Amy & Carolyn there on my wedding day to make sure everything ran smoothly! As a planner myself, a good day of coordinator was very high on my priority list, because I know how much goes into making sure every little detail is perfect. They did a flawless job setting everything up and ensuring the day was as I had envisioned. I didn’t have to worry about a single thing and that piece of mind I had is just priceless, especially being a control freak-planner. I had one stress on the day of the wedding due to a really important item being left on the trolley (my own fault). They got it back for me within the hour! It is clear that both Amy & Carolyn love weddings and being a part of people’s big days, and their work shines because of it. They are kind, professional and just flat out fun to be around :-) I’d recommend them to anyone!

How do weddings happen without you?! Thank you for all your planning, attention to detail, and focus on making each event one that runs smoothly….but that WE did not have to worry about.

You are both so lovely and we promise to let our engaged friends know that the best money we spent was on An Event Less Ordinary!

Under their guidance, we knew exactly what we needed to do on our end of things and they took care of the rest, (and) our wedding day really was perfect. We had Amy as our on-site coordinator and she was very professional and very well-prepared…in the days following the wedding, we received many compliments from guests about how much fun they had, how beautiful everything looked, and how the evening transitioned so seamlessly. Definitely a testament to excellent wedding planning! We also had some reservations about working with various vendors because we’re a gay couple (some folks weren’t so thrilled, believe me). Amy and all of the vendors she helped us to choose treated us with the utmost respect and sincerity, and it is very apparent that AELO enjoys working with any and all couples. We can’t say thank you enough.

A thousand ‘thank you’s’ does not seem sufficient to express how thankful Kyle & I are for everything you guys did on our wedding day. Our friends, family, & other vendors RAVED about how fabulous you two were. By the end of the night, I felt like you guys were part of our family. I know that it is because of your hard work that everything turned out so beautifully and went so smoothly. The day turned out more perfect than I could have ever imagined!! Thanks again for everything - guys are AWESOME! And we will definiltey be recommending you to everyone we know!

Using AELO for our wedding was the best present we gave to ourselves. Carolyn took care of everything…she even made sure we each always had a drink in our hands throughout the night. She was a complete pro at everything and I’d recommend AELO for ANYONE who wants wedding planning or day-of services. They are a real gift to a couple.

LOVE AELO! We had them as our day of planners for our wedding in April 2012. I had the best wedding day because of them; I didn’t worry about a thing. They created a great timeline and made sure every vender was on the same page. Anytime I had a question they where very quick to respond. If you are looking to enjoy your day please go with AELO they are so sweet and wonderful to work with. Thank you Amy and Carolyn for helping make our wedding so amazing!

Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special!

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say “Thanks” for all you did to make my daughter’s wedding such a flawless event this weekend. You ladies took so much stress off all of us, who were so wrapped up in the moment to remember and account for all the details. More importantly, my baby girl was able to enjoy her special day even more knowing that you two beautiful and wonderful ladies would handle everything eloquently and professionally … and you did! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Amy and Carolyn are the best day of coordinators a girl could hire. They are these fabulous wedding ninjas who take your vision of what you want and transform your space into this super awesome magical looking place. They make sure everything goes off without a hitch. I literally left them with a cart full of decor and said one thing “The two larger floral displays flank the aisle.” When I walked into the room with our wedding it was beautiful and elegant and everything I wanted. And I don’t think it would have looked like that without their expertise and help.

Amy and Carolyn were wonderful.

Our wedding was wonderful and AELO is worth their weight in gold, platinum and diamonds.

Working with Carolyn and Amy was fantastic. They made our wedding lovely and run smoothly. This past weekend, I had the joy of attending our very good friends’ wedding and lo and behold, there were Carolyn and Amy, helping to make their day just as lovely and wonderful! It was such a treat to be on the other side and be a guest at a wedding where they are working their magic. I love you both, thank you for making this past weekend wonderful!
