What folks are saying about Elizabeth…
“Elizabeth took over six weeks before the wedding as our Day of Coordinator and it was like a literal weight was lifted from my shoulders. She is a superhuman! At our first meeting she went through her checklist (and mine because, of course, I had my own) and said “I’ll take care of it” to literally everything... and then...she did! I was fully prepared to have to follow up with vendors and micromanage but I didn’t have to do any of that. It was magical. Elizabeth and her team did so much work and went above and beyond in literally every way to ensure we had a perfect day.”
— Emily + Mike
“Elizabeth Carberry is amazing, what can we say! Elizabeth pulled from her years of experience in the art and hospitality industries helping us develop consistent, authentic brand marketing strategies over various platforms (website design, instagram, etc) which are perfect representations of our business, our philosophy and image. Using her straightforward and honest approach, Elizabeth was attentive to our needs, creating a one of a kind vision for our brand and we are thrilled with the extended reach of our business. We love working with Elizabeth and look forward to our next collaboration.” — Relish Caterin
Elizabeth really went over and above as a day-of coordinator. She was so great at staying in touch in the run up to the wedding and helping out with getting details finalised. If you want someone who is a genuinely lovely person, professional and personable, this is your wedding planner. She is also a great problem-solver. We had a tornado hit ten miles from our venue and flash flooding. She barely flinched. Everything that was planned for outside got moved seamlessly inside, including rejigging decorations that had a very set space. She did a great job of making everything look really calm on the surface when there is no way there wasn’t at least a teeny bit of panic/craziness underneath! — Ida Rose

And her assistant, Kristin was always there when you needed her: she was quick, efficient, friendly. She also did a great job of getting the bridal suite beautifully candlelit when the weather got gross and it really made it feel like a very special space. — Rosie + Joe
“Elizabeth went so far above and beyond to make sure our event went off as smoothly and beautifully, and—most importantly—as effortlessly for us as possible. She captured our vision and went about making it happen exactly as we hoped, even within our tight timeline. Dealing with the unique challenges of the holiday season, she was ready with creative solutions for anything that popped up unexpectedly, and was so confident and reassuring at all times that we got to enjoy seeing our vision come to life without distraction or extra stress.” — Carolyn + Mallory
“A true visionary and expert problem-solver. She navigated every aspect of the day with class and grace. We genuinely could not have done this without her and are so glad we made a lovely friend through the process.” — Nicole + Mackenzie
