I honestly don't even know where to begin... Elizabeth was my saving grace while planning a wedding out of state. From the first email, to the very last, she was there for me with her support, attentiveness, advice, and just someone to talk things out with. She honestly became my friend through the wedding planning. She is a first class wedding planner - I was always so blown away that she had an answer for everything and always gave me her undivided attention. She made the wedding planning process so much easier to handle - especially being across the country while working with her. Her eye for design not only inspired me, but also opened my eyes to things that I never even knew existed. I feel so lucky to have had her ideas and creations for my big day. Working with Elizabeth, I just remember how taken care of I felt through every vendor meeting. She took charge and helped me along in an industry that I knew nothing about! I know for a fact that my wedding would not have gone the way it did if Elizabeth was not my wedding planner. It was such a dream come true and I am so thankful to East Made for being there for me in so many ways.

Stop looking for wedding planners and hire Elizabeth!! We were long distance planning our wedding and hired Elizabeth for full wedding planning since we didn't have much time to plan ourselves. She was awesome from the moment we started talking to her! Her style is absolutely amazing and timeless and she has such an attention to detail for styling. She knows all of the vendors in the Baltimore area and was able to pull together a kick-ass team for our wedding. On the day of the wedding she was amazingly organized and I wasn't stressed at all because she dealt with all of our vendors and keeping us on a timeline. Elizabeth herself is also just the nicest and ended up surprising us with cut-outs of our cats for our photobooth! So cute and thoughtful! I cannot recommend Elizabeth and her team enough!!

We are SO happy we chose to work with Elizabeth to plan our dream wedding. Elizabeth instantly understood the vision we were going for and made it come to life! She was incredibly helpful with design and presented endless creative ideas to build the perfect day. She also helped keep me sane throughout the process – I knew she would keep me on track and wouldn’t let me forget any tasks! I would highly recommend Elizabeth. We truly loved working with her!!

If you're reading this, you've wisely started the first part of your wedding coordinator search and looked at East Made's page. Now, let me tell you why you need to continue on with the second part, which is hiring Elizabeth to be your wedding coordinator and why it's the best decision you'll make for yourself and your wedding. I hired Elizabeth for her partial package, which has a misleading name, as you'll never feel like you're getting partial effort from her. She was always attentive and responsive and gave 100% effort. She started helping me find vendors and brainstorm on style ideas after I had booked the venue and set my date. For me, Elizabeth's help was 3-fold. First, after being a bridesmaid several times I knew the value of hiring a wedding coordinator who is organized and calm. Elizabeth is both those things in spades. She never made me feel rushed or stressed (beyond my own natural stress during the planning process, lol). During the week leading up to my wedding, I knew she had everything handled, she had already sent me a highly detailed schedule for the big day, and she was adept at answering all my last minute questions with the ease of someone with all the time in the world. Secondly, I was new to Maryland and needed someone to help me navigate vendor selection who knew first hand from working with the vendors herself, or through colleagues of hers that had worked with them. Elizabeth gave me so many great starting points for finding vendors that would fit me, and even reached out to a few herself to get the feel of their price points and availability. She was KEY in my vendor selection. Thirdly, I'm not great at putting a whole vision of style together. I know the aesthetic that pleases me, but I needed Elizabeth to really tie everything together. She made for us a day that was full of gorgeous details, and exactly the vibe we wanted. Even up through the day before our wedding, Elizabeth was adding touches to the design/style scheme that ultimately made everything that much more beautiful! A guest at the wedding who used to do event coordination told us she gave the wedding 5 stars, and its all due to Elizabeth!! The wedding day flowed so easily and smoothly, and we have East Made Event Co to thank for it!

Hiring East Made to provide partial planning for both my wedding events in two countries was the best decision ever. When I reached out to Elizabeth about planning my wedding reception in Maryland, I immediately felt like I was talking to a dear friend. Her eye for style and attention to detail are clear in her beautiful work. When Elizabeth asked if I needed help planning the second, formal wedding in the United Kingdom as well, I didn't hesitate to bring her on board. I was confident in her dedication, her eye for detail and her sheer skill. I was right. All of the planning was done while I was in a third country (Germany) and the gargantuan task was managed with the greatest of care through the inevitable ups and downs of planning two weddings at once. The results were incredible. Both events were gorgeous, fun and ran smoothly so we were able to focus on our families and friends. Words can barely express the gratitude we have for Elizabeth's talents and the amount of hours she put in working with us, advising us and providing assurance and calm words when we needed them the most. We could not have done this without her, her help was invaluable and it was the best investment hands down we could have made to ensure the success of our weddings.

We were so lucky to find Elizabeth and East Made Event Co! I knew I wanted/needed a wedding planner from the beginning and she was the first vendor I secured. Her warm and calming personality during our initial phone interview sealed the deal. She was there throughout the planning process helping to keep me on task, making vendor/timeline/decor suggestions, and then later organizing the week-of event schedule, rental deliveries, etc. On our actual wedding day it ended up raining (we were having an outdoor wedding) so she stayed positive (despite my frazzled nerves) and worked with the other vendors to make "Plan B" into something just as beautiful as Plan A. In the days following our wedding, multiple people commented on how thankful they were that Elizabeth and her team were present for the event and what a big role they played in the success of the night. Investing in a wedding planner is a NECESSITY, and Elizabeth was the best.

HIRE HER! We are incredibly happy we hired East Made Event Company for our wedding. Elizabeth made our wedding weekend perfect – it honestly would not have been the same without her. She did a stunning job! As an organized, OCD, Type A person, I thought I may not need a wedding planner, but East Made was easily the best money we spent on our wedding. During the planning process, Elizabeth was always available via email to discuss anything - including vendors, timeline, family dynamics, favors, etc. and to troubleshoot anything that came up. She always responded promptly to emails and she checked-in regularly to keep me focused. We were able to set-up in-person meetings and phone calls easily, when needed. At the beginning and end of the planning process, Elizabeth visited the venue with me. This was a huge advantage and alleviated much of my angst, as we were working with an old, smaller venue. She made great recommendations on vendors and even introduced us to our photographer, who we adored. Elizabeth also kept us on target with budget, making astute suggestions as to when/where to spend or not spend. We got the “partial planning” package, which I highly recommend (if not the full planning package). Having Elizabeth involved in the design and styling process was ESSENTIAL. She translated my disjointed descriptions into a seamless, beautiful vision. She thought of things, I would never have known to consider. Her attention to detail, knowledge of the industry, and contacts with trustworthy vendors seriously paid off. Day-of, Elizabeth managed everything from a “missing bride” panic attack to an “illegal keg” and thunderstorms. Our wedding day was not without a little drama and she remained a calm, helpful, resourceful guide throughout. She even turned the rain and deviation from our original plan into an even better, spectacular, dreamy ceremony, dinner, and reception. After the wedding, all of our guests commented on how intimate and personal our wedding felt. Elizabeth truly helped our wedding feel like “us.” My brother is marrying my best friend in a year, and East Made was my #1 recommendation to them. Elizabeth is simply a lovely, kind, humble, good-hearted and fun person, who was an absolute pleasure to work with. Now that our wedding has happened, I hope to count her as a new friend!

We are so grateful that we hired Elizabeth of East Made Event Company to coordinate our wedding, and cannot recommend her highly enough.

From the moment I came across Elizabeth’s website and work, it was clear that she has an amazing eye for style and design. She is passionate about even the tiniest of details, and was always excited to trade ideas – from helping me to design our escort card display and place settings to sourcing silk ribbon and copper accents. Having someone who could bring both structure and creativity to the planning process was really important to me, and Elizabeth exceeded my highest expectations in that regard. She also took the time to get to know us as a couple, which made our experience both fun and personalized.

From a coordination perspective, Elizabeth is incredibly organized and communicative. She helped us think through every aspect of the weekend, including scheduling and set-up details that we would have otherwise overlooked. She also seamlessly managed the logistical challenges associated with a large outdoor, at-home wedding. Even when the day-of weather conditions were a little wet, she and her team made set-up and delivery adjustments to ensure everything went smoothly. I felt completely comfortable knowing everything was in her hands, and I know our vendors appreciated it too.

I can honestly say that hiring East Made Event Company was one of the best investments we made. Elizabeth is talented, humble, and absolutely wonderful to work with. Our wedding would not have been what it was without her!
