We KNOW Weddings! After 14 years in the industry, we've produced and managed hundreds of events. Our goal is that you will truly enjoy planning so we've created a streamlined process and use tools to help you feel a part of the process, even though you can't always be present. We know that you have so many choices when it comes to planners and who will be a part of your event, so what makes us different?
“If I had to describe Emily I would say she is like an air traffic controller. She can handle a million things coming at her all at once all day and night and doesn’t miss a beat. She cares about not only her clients, but also her vendors which make her such a pleasure to work with. There’s not many people out there that will work harder, care more, and be willing to go above and beyond at a moments notice.”
Andrew (Photobooth Owner)
Emily was THE BEST. Seriously she made life so easy I didn't even feel like I was planning a 325 person wedding! My husband and I live in NYC now, so Emily literally had to take care of everything for us on the ground in New Orleans. She is so organized and told me exactly when I needed to make decisions. I also pestered her with random emails at late hours with ideas I had and she always responded with feedback and solutions. She made the day-of totally stress free. Even when the hair/makeup person I had my trial with double booked us, Emily called the vendor and got the owner (who trained my original hair/makeup person) to come immediately instead. She also has such fun ideas that I would never think of. For example, when my guests got off the bus to our reception, they were greeted with Dixie beer and canned champagne (who knew!) -- it was something I would never have thought to do. She also made the space look gorgeous -- even the director of the venue said it was the prettiest wedding they'd seen there. I could not have asked for anyone better for our wedding.

"What I love best about working with Emily Sullivan Events is how relaxed and confident my brides become after hiring Emily. I work for a venue and it’s not uncommon for couples to get overwhelmed with wedding planning. When Emily steps in, I see a huge difference – brides start telling me how much fun they are having now that they have Emily and her team to guide them. I think Emily does an amazing job at making sure each of her events reflects the couple and their story rather than forcing brides into a cookie-cutter wedding. Adding this spark of fun and creativity to her weddings makes the experience that much more meaningful to her clients. I highly recommend Emily Sullivan Events!"
