our clients love ebtr!
(The feeling is mutual!)
My daughter got engaged last spring, and, although she and I have done quite a bit of entertaining and hospitality, I knew that a wedding planner was not optional, if we were going to enjoy the wedding. The engagement was 4-1/2 months long, and we invited over 400 people to the wedding, so it was not a small wedding, and obviously there was lots to do in a fairly short amount of time. Additionally, my daughter lives in Seattle, and would only be home for a couple of very brief visits, so that was also a challenge. Although I knew that we needed help with the wedding, I was not hopeful that we could find a wedding planner to whom I would be comfortable relinquishing responsibility and control, but, boy, was I wrong! We were referred to Chelsea, the owner of Everything But the Ring (EBTR), by the Carol Perrard, event coordinator at our reception venue (The Westin at Memorial City). I had told Carol that I wanted to find someone who was not only a great wedding planner, but that was not a snob and would absolutely not add drama to our event. EBTR was arguably the best and most important recommendation we got from anyone to ensure that our wedding was everything we dreamed it would be - and it was! Chelsea is amazing to work with - very professional, punctual, communicated frequently, very accessible, so pleasant, flexible, helpful, forward-thinking; she understood what our vision was, and was fabulous at implementing it. Her experience and judgment were invaluable and contributed immeasurably to the success of the wedding. The week leading up to the wedding was SO FUN - no worries. We were in such good hands with EBTR, and isn't that why you hire a wedding planner in the first place? I recommend this company wholeheartedly and hope for your sake that you let Chelsea help you make your wedding everything your ever dreamed it would be."
"Chelsea consistently went above and beyond our expectations for planning our event and never hesitated to make time for us when we needed it most. Her support and guidance was always sincere, well-thought out, and with a clear understanding of any urgent matters that needed our attention and input. Her experience left us calm and with very little stress throughout the planning process. On the day of our wedding, every last detail was taken care of far beyond our expectations and any issues that may have arisen that day were taken care of immediately by Chelsea. Her organizational skills were evident, keeping everyone and everything moving along as it was planned. We were fortunate enough to be one of the few wedding couples ahead of schedule on our special day – all due to Chelsea!"
"Chelsea was everything we needed to complete my dream wedding. She is very experienced in what she does. She asked questions about things we did not even think about asking when it came to the event venue, photographer, florist, DJ....etc. She was supportive, and made our wedding planning very smooth. She constantly kept us on schedule with reminders on what needed to be done. Moreover, she always kept us up to date and advised us where we are in the planning process. Overall, she was great to work with, we saw her as our friend and not our wedding planner."
"Chelsea was a wonderful wedding coordinator, and helped make our amazing day all the more perfect. She helped us with ideas and navigated relationships with vendors - the perfect mix of right-brained creativity and left-brained organization. She was mindful of our budget at all times, and was a huge supporter of our vision for the day. She was available when we needed her, and always maintained a cheerful disposition, even when things got a little stressful. "
