What inspired you to launch your own business?

While working for a large hotel as a catering and conference services manager, friends of couples who had known me in my previous job as a wedding coordinator for a restaurant, started calling the restaurant asking if I would plan their weddings. It never occurred to me until then that I could just do it on my own and not as someone's employee. The enthusiasm of these first clients gave me the confidence to go out on my own.


What keeps you passionate about weddings?

I love that moment when you step back and see the whole of the wedding design come together, when everyone is cocktailing, socializing, and having fun in an amazing setting and has no idea that I'm even there. I also love how much I feel appreciated by my clients.


Please share a recent testimonial from a happy client!

"I am so thankful that I had Emee at EJP Events as my wedding planner; I truly could not have done it without her! I asked her about a million questions along the way and she was so kind and patient with me every step of the way. The last few weeks before my wedding could have been so stressful, but I knew Emee had it all under control. The day of my wedding I literally did not have to think about or worry about one single thing. All of the other vendors commented to me how amazing it was to be working with her. She is professional, calm, kind and absolutely knows what she is doing!" --Rachel B., 2019
