What our clients are saying

From start to finish, our experience with FCWE was effortless. Vendor selection was made very easy as Heather minded our style, budget and personality. I only now realize how much effort goes into coordinating such a day - the team performed their activities in the background and yet somehow managed to get every detail just right. We are grateful for the talent, experience, professionalism, and heart of Heather and her team.

"Our dream wedding came true..."

I just wanted to take a minute to tell you what a great job your team did for our wedding.  Throughout the last few months, we have really enjoyed working with Emma.  She has been patient, sweet, and overall just awesome throughout the planning process.  The night of the wedding, she was truly a star.  We had some hairy moments where anyone could’ve been overwhelmed and she was very poised and polite throughout it all.   I was so grateful to have her calm sense of energy around me!  We also loved meeting Kari last weekend.  She and Emma were great with the rehearsal on Friday night and what a small world, she knew some of our bridal party, which helped everyone to feel even more comfortable!   Lastly, Melanie was a lifesaver with my dress and helped my bridesmaids to finally get it rigged up so I could enjoy the night without tripping over my train. Thanks for a wonderful wedding and for helping to make our dream wedding come true!"

“You arranged everything perfectly...”

Now that we're home from our honeymoon and settled back into life, I wanted to thank you for everything you did for our wedding. Having done all of the wedding and honeymoon planning ourselves, it was wonderful to have you take over all aspects for the day of. It was so reassuring to know you confirmed and coordinated all the vendors. You made our rehearsal and wedding day go so smoothly. Working with you and the other coordinator felt like sharing the day with friends so we weren't nervous at all. Darren and I were able to enjoy our day completely. It was an amazing feeling to be standing in the hallway, ready to walk outside and seeing my brothers standing at the doors. You arranged everything perfectly. I didn't even panic when my veil starting catching on the brick walkways because I knew you would help as soon as I asked. And you really saved me with that granola bar right before we walked out!

— Teri

I can’t thank you enough for all of your help with our wedding. We had the time of our lives! The best part was knowing you would handle any problem headed our way - I had a wedding without worry for sure!
— Amanda

“I truly did not worry once through the entire wedding…”

Laura - This thank you is long overdue. I cannot overstate how important you were to Caroline and Brad's wedding day. You were wonderful to work with in the weeks leading up to the big day, and even more outstanding that weekend. Your management of all the details was perfect and your calm presence kept us all on track. I truly did not worry once through the entire wedding, which Caroline can assure you is a modern miracle. Thank you, thank you, for your large part in creating a wonderful joy-filled day for my whole family!

"We couldn't have had a more perfect wedding..."

Jen and I can't thank you enough for helping us create the greatest memory of our lives. Everything and everyone were so professional. We can't thank Lauren and Jennifer enough for being Soooo amazing! Lauren was so attentive to us and made sure we had everything we needed all night. Jen and I sat up recapping the night and we kept coming up with how great she was to us throughout the event. We wanted to send you this while still fresh in our minds! Thank you!

— Andrew

"I was truly able to relax..."

Thank you so much for coordinating Laura and Jamey's wedding! I was truly able to relax and enjoy the entire day of their wedding. I even packed my 3 ring notebook and iPhone away for the day! You have always been so calm and reassuring during this entire process. We felt honored that you were taking on our wedding. Laura said you were the best and I can see why! From the bottom of my heart, thank you!

Heather, thank you so much for planning our perfect night! With the bride in DC and the groom in Boston and the wedding in Jax, it would have been impossible for us if you weren't there. So many things could of gone wrong but it all went so smoothly and stress free!! Everyone is amazed and had a great time!!

"I loved having Emma as my wedding planner..."

You must know how great Emma is, otherwise you wouldn't have her on your team, but I wanted to take a moment to give feedback about our wedding planning journey Emma (with her grace and hard working attitude) guided us on.

I loved having Emma as my wedding planner. She was such a huge and special part of our wedding and engagement. She made the planning process truly memorable and easy. She made us feel like she was a part of our team, rooting for us and working hard so we could have the perfect wedding. She really is an exceptional person and professional.

I was so relaxed on my wedding day (shocking to my friends and family), solely because I had Emma as my planner. I knew she would execute everything with perfection, knew she hadn't missed one single detail in the planning process, and trusted her to put out any fires that could possibly come up day of -- and she absolutely did all of these things.

Emma is a highly organized professional who puts 100% effort into keeping the bride, groom (and anyone else involved in the wedding planning process) on track. There wasn't a day that went by in the 9-month planning process that I felt like we may be overlooking something. Emma was there for us every single week leading up to our wedding, whether it be an email, phone call, vendor update or even just a hello. She even checked in with me while she was on an international vacation with her family to see how I was doing, making sure I was focused on the action items I needed to take care of, and even asked if I needed her to contact any vendors.

Her personality makes her the perfect leader for bride and groom. She is gentle, but precise, upbeat, but not at all cheesy. I was especially impressed with how she gave direction to vendors, bridal party, and family on the day of the wedding. She commanded attention without being abrasive. Everyone loved her and a few even went out of their way to comment on how hard she worked. I also noticed how well-received and respected she was by all of the vendors.

To completely describe Emma's commitment to our wedding would take hours, so I'll stop here, but would be happy to recommend Emma and First Coast Weddings and Events to anyone considering your services. You guys are the best.

— Whitney

Thanks again for all your help before and during our wedding. You really were a blessing!
— Sara and Paul

"Your suggestions and advice were very reassuring..."

After all the months of planning, it's hard to believe Katie and Bill are now a married couple!  Tim and I would like once again to thank you for your part in helping to create the wedding of Katie and Bill's dreams.  Planning a destination wedding, in a location that I knew very little about, was, at first, very intimidating.  However, your suggestions and advice were very reassuring.  We were so pleased with all your recommendations - all the vendors were so easy and extremely enjoyable to work with and made our planning experience so much fun! Thank you for your help in transporting everything once we arrived in Amelia Island.  It was so nice not to have to worry about all of that. The biggest thank you is for the rehearsal and the day of the wedding.  Being able to really enjoy Katie and Bill's wedding and have fun with our guests was our ultimate goal.  We certainly achieved that with the help of you and your staff.  It was a pleasure to work with you, Heather.

"Everything was perfect..."

I just wanted to thank you so much for all your hard work!!! (and your assistant of course!!) Everything was perfect and I could not have asked for a more beautiful wedding!! It really was great having you there and thank you so much for doing such a fantastic job! I really felt like you had everything under control and I didn't even think about any of the details, which was great...and neither did our Moms which is always a good thing!! ;) Thank you again, and we could not have done it without you!

— Liz


"Saying 'thank you' seems so inadequate..."

Saying “thank you” seems so inadequate.  Words cannot describe how amazing you were and how grateful Bob and I are that you made the evening a very memorable night for Jenna and Kenny and for everyone who attended.  From the pre-planning to the last sparkler, we couldn’t have imagined a better ceremony and reception. Everything was perfect, and we owe it all to you.  We have received many phone calls and texts raving about the venue, the ceremony, reception, food, etc. 
You and Molly took care of everything ( some things I’m sure we don’t know and don’t want to know!) and allowed us to celebrate the night with family and friends without worrying about anything.
It was a special night and we are so grateful that you made it even more special.
Thank you again,
 — Bob and Noreen
