I am certified as a wedding planner by the Bridal Society. The certification process included training and education about most aspects of wedding planning including finding the right venue, selecting vendors, reviewing vendor contracts and budget management. I worked as a Project/Program Manager for major corporations for over 15 years before becoming a wedding and event planner. I have managed event and project budgets from $50,000 to $2 million.
A coordinator typically works with clients for a short period, 90 days, before the event. They confirm logistics previously arranged by the client and create a day-of timeline. A planner manages and oversees all the logistics of your wedding or event. A planner will select and meet with the vendors that fit with your vision. We coordinate hotel rooms, transportation and manage your budget. Events by Evelyn handles all the details, including design and styling, so that you can enjoy your beautiful, stress-free wedding or event.
