Working with Ellie was the best decision we made about our wedding. She is extremely competent - organized, communicative, thoughtful, creative, and so so easy to work with! From recommending amazing vendors that matched our style (and budget) to giving us her honest opinion and suggestions, Ellie was a dream. She listened to our ideas and vision until she understood what we wanted even better than we did, and everything she created for us was way beyond our expectations. She helped us create gorgeous table decor that was totally within our budget and worked with our florist to come up with stunning table garlands. Our reception had some complicated components (lots of vegetarians and food allergies, a group of kosher attendees with a separate buffet) and Ellie handled it so smoothly and made sure everyone had the best time. Our communication styles matched perfectly - she’s super responsive and always easy to reach via email or text, and kept us updated with her progress finding vendors, coming up with design ideas, etc. We also had some unexpected family/personal issues come up a few months before our wedding, and Ellie was very patient and understanding but still kept us on track. We had a beautiful wedding and everything was perfect, and we absolutely couldn’t have done it without Ellie (and her day-of assistant)!

Ellie made our wedding day so incredibly smooth! We were not sure if we needed a coordinator, but now we can’t imagine how stressed we’d be without having hired Ellie. She and her assistant were everywhere at once and catered to all of our needs. They adjusted to our pace for the event and helped to keep everything moving along. We barely had to think! Thank you so much for everything!

Elle was amazing! My husband and I were nervous about all the details that would need to be taken care of day of and it wasn’t something we wanted to do. Elle took care of everything! She was also so helpful in the month leading up to the wedding. She helped create a schedule for the day’s events and coordinated with all of our vendors to make sure everyone was on the same page. The day of our wedding we were able to focus on getting married and having fun - Elle took care of everything else! Everyone needs to have Elle at their wedding!!!

Ellie and her assistant were such pleasures to work with. They were professional while still being so friendly and such fun which put us at ease during the planning process. Ellie was so easy to communicate with and the pricing was unlike any I’ve seen in the surrounding areas (she’s worth every penny, and will help you keep your sanity). Thank you so much again Gatherings by Elle, not only do my husband and I appreciate your help but also my family and friends who had an amazing time.

Elle is the absolute best! Having her help with your wedding is one of the smartest things you can do. I had the pleasure of working with her when I booked her as my day of coordinator. She made sure that my day ran smoothly and that I was able to enjoy my wedding, rather than freaking out over the small stuff. She is responsive to emails and texts, organized, experienced, and kind. From a month before the wedding, she was already in contact with all of my vendors making sure that everything would be fine. I had a very large traditional wedding and she was able to handle the size and traditions like a pro. I wish that I had hired her to help plan the entire wedding! Don’t even think twice, book her, she’s worth her weight in gold!

I was on the edge about hiring a day of coordinator but I’m soooo glad I did!! She made sure everything ran smoothly. I knew she was the perfect coordinator after 1 phone call. I had a 300 people Indian / Hispanic reception and there’s nothing that I would change. Communication was very easy and the day off had no issues, at least none that I knew of. We cannot thank you enough for your hard work. I will definitely be recommending you to any of my friends for upcoming weddings!

I can’t really put into words how pivotal Elle’s presence was. My wedding was the best night of my life, perfectly executed by Elle! I was able to relax and be pampered all day while Elle was confidently setting up, bringing my vision to life. I could not imagine a better scenario. I didn’t have to worry about anything. She had my guest list, processional order, timeline, decor, all of it perfectly in place. Can’t say enough good things about this person. Thank you so much!
