Emily and team are AWESOME! I wish I could give them 10 stars, that is how much I LOVE THEM.
I called and knew within seconds that Emily was the best fit. Doing my due diligence I called several references and all gave me a rave reviews for Emily and her team. The entire wedding planning process was a breeze. Emily was very communicative and easy to get a hold of and she's soooo calm. I never felt stressed about anything. We were so impressed with GPE that we had them plan the whole weekend, including the rehearsal dinner and day-after brunch. Both of these events were amazing too.
Best wedding decision I made! Emily and her team were on point with all aspects. They made the best vendor recommendations, understood my style and executed the event flawlessly. I would without a doubt hire Emily. My wedding day was perfect, because of her!
I can't say enough about Emily and the Get Polished team! They made our wedding dreams come true. Emily was my source of sanity and calm throughout the entire process. From turning our reception venue into something above and beyond my wildest expectations to guiding us through each step in the planning process, Emily and the team were TOP NOTCH. Their day of organization was amazing and kept everyone calm and able to enjoy themselves.
Emily and the team strike a perfect balance of listening to your vision, gathering a deep understanding of that vision, and connecting you to vendors that are able to deliver.
“Thanks for taking the time to get to know us, my parents and my in-laws. Your unique ability to get to the core of a person and mitigate their fears makes you unique. Your patience, talent and kindness made the wedding such a success. We wish you (and Lake) nothing but dreams coming true.”
Emily and the whole team at GPE went so above and beyond what I expected! She took every single ounce of stress off of me during the planning process and our wedding day went so smoothly. One of her assistants, Melissa, was there with me while getting ready and she was so kind and made me feel completely at ease. Once we arrived at our venue, there was ALWAYS someone right there asking us if we needed anything, it was amazing and my husband and I felt like royalty! The weather was kind of hot that day and I was nervous and one of the GPE team members literally stood there and blotted my sweat with a towel whenever I needed it during pictures haha! That shows that they truly care about you and that your day is as amazing as it can possibly be. Emily is an amazing designer and really took my vision and made it into reality. I couldn't have asked for a more caring and devoted team.
My husband and I are STILL getting calls and cards from people telling us how amazing the wedding was. That should give you some idea of the dedication, professionalism, aesthetic taste, grace, and all-around awesomeness of Emily and Get Polished. We don't live in New Orleans and so knew we probably needed a planner. But we were initially a little hesitant to hire Emily because we worried she was too expensive for our budget. However, my instincts about Emily were strong- I LOVED all her past events that I looked at on websites, and I also loved talking to her. She was practical, down-to-earth, quick to respond, and clearly very knowledgeable. So we hired her, and she and the Get Polished team did an amazing job in every respect. For the budget conscious, I want to emphasize that I am more than convinced Emily was worth it- she saved us money by finding amazing deals and sticking scrupulously to the budget we named. Aside from the strictly practical, everything else was perfect too. Her sense of decor, look, feel, flow-- all those intangibles that go into an event-- was perfect. Every vendor was spectacular. The flowers were incredible. The cake was incredible. The Second Line Band was incredible. The day of the wedding, no one had to worry about anything. Emily's team made sure everything flowed perfectly smoothly, and yet they were completely unobtrusive too.
