 She was invisible to guests, effortlessly making the day a logistical fairytale….

I hired Angela as our month-of wedding coordinator and she was the best wedding decision I made. The day went seamlessly thanks to her incredible attention to detail and her ability to problem solve. It meant that I was able to enjoy my wedding without having to worry, or think about, anything. She was invisible to guests, effortlessly making the day a logistical fairytale. I could not have done it without her.

Elite Wedding was worth every single penny and then some!

Angela, Angela, Angela!!!!! I’ve already recommended your services to newly engaged couples We hired Angela for FULL wedding and design services for a 200-guest wedding in Hudson, NY and I could not be happier that we did, Elite Wedding was worth every single penny and then some!!! We are both attorneys and live in Manhattan, and the logistics of it all would have been impossible and very stressful to do on our own. We knew we wanted something special, with all the little details aimed at elevating our guests’ experience and making it a fun (and glitzy) wedding. Just trying to remember everything Angela helped with is exhausting — venue and vendor coordination, site and vendor visits, full design presentation, tent and flooring of the courtyard, menus, welcome dinner, shuttles, accommodations all over town, managing and arranging all the rentals and decor, getting an aisle runner, hair & makeup vendor and coming with me to my trial, flowers, linens, photography, videography, DJ and sound system for ceremony and dinner, photo booth, extra guest entertainment (cigar roller, oyster shuckers!), 10-piece band, cocktail hour pianist, vendor meals and sandwiches, bridal suite needs, assistants on call, guestbook, audio guestbook!, table arrangements, booths and round and long tables both indoors and outdoors!, signage and printing, invitation suite, putting together the invites and sending them out, hanging the escort cards on a beautiful screen, gathering people for photos, covering up some unwanted decor in the courtyard, creating an entrance with personalized signage, getting a cake in the last few weeks before the wedding, giving me ideas for gown designers, day of timelines, planning checklists and timelines, ordering guest bags, ideas for contents and then dropping those bags off at various locations, support and encouragement, creating a MARTINI TOWER!!, turning over the courtyard from ceremony to dinner, creating a gorgeous space in every room, and making sure this insanely complicated and beautiful wedding went off without a hitch! It was a whirlwind and it never would have happened without Elite Wedding Planning in charge. Angela cares about her clients and their events and it shows. Thank you on behalf of me, my new husband, and our families. xoxo

We couldn’t be happier that we chose to work with Angela for month-of wedding coordination. Without her, we would have been lost in the final details. The day of our wedding was totally stress free and ran so smoothly. Angela provided a slew of great suggestions and tips to pulling together a wedding in a non-traditional venue. Every detail was thought of and executed to perfection — we can’t thank Angela and her team enough!!

bohemian wedding - handsome hollowShe went above and beyond her call of duty…

An all-star wedding planner and one of the best in the biz, Angela and her team are the real deal. We hired Angela for Month-Of Services and had a ton of vendors and moving parts to work with. Angela’s superior communication, coordination and execution skills allowed us to relax and truly enjoy the entire process. Being the leader of our wedding tribe was no easy task, but Angela handled any bumps in the road with ease and confidence. She went above and beyond her call of duty, exceeded our expectations, and we couldn’t have imagined our wedding day, or the entire planning process, without her by our side.

west point saber ceremonyShe was a life saver and my stress and anxiety about the wedding decreased immensely….

I was a little more than 5 weeks from my wedding date and in panic mode when I contacted Angela from Elite Wedding and Event Planning to try to get my wedding planning back on track. I had been working with a different planning business and things were not moving smoothly. With 5 weeks until my wedding, Angela was able to negotiate with my already contracted vendors to help decrease costs and get me back on budget. There were also a lot of unfinished details with the vendors that she quickly identified and fixed. She did a fantastic job coordinating with all of the vendors to finalize a wedding day timeline so that everything ran smoothly. The Wednesday before our wedding, the Restaurant we were using for our Rehearsal dinner canceled on us. Angela helped us find another location to hold our 40 person rehearsal dinner, that was cheaper and turned out to be even better then our original location and we had no issues with the new restaurant. She was there helping me every step of the way. Angela is very detail oriented, easy to work with, and will do everything she can to make sure your day is perfect. She was a life saver and my stress and anxiety about the wedding decreased immensely once I started working with Angela. The wedding day was perfect. Angela kept everyone, including me, on time and I can’t thank her enough. I definitely recommend Elite Wedding and Event Planning for any event you are holding. Angela is fantastic.

Saugerties NY weddingShe did what I asked and so much more!

I could not be happier with Elite Wedding Events’ services! When planning a wedding there are a million things to think about and Angela remember and advised on every one of them! She, and her team, worked like bees to make my special day perfect and it was exactly that! When i hit a snag on how to handle a situation (as we all know both families never see eye to eye on everything) she came up with amazing solutions to keep everyone happy and made the day perfect for all! I gave her basic instructions on how I wanted things set up and she did what I asked and so much more! I hadn’t seen the ceremony space set up prior to the ceremony and it was above and beyond. She is so creative and really knew how to take my vision and make it a reality. She coordinated all of my vendors and removed any and all stress I may have had for our big day. She kept any and all hiccups with vendors to herself and just fixed them so I didn’t have to worry and I could just focus on having fun and being in love. She was amazing! If you are looking for a planner, you’ve found it!

Tralee farm wedding

She made me want to give her all of my money….

Angela was an incredible person as well as wedding planner. We hired her for “Day of” services and could not be any happier with the services we received. She answered any and all questions we had, and gave my mother and I a stress-free wedding day. If you think you don’t need a wedding planner, YOU’RE WRONG. RETHINK ALL OF YOUR LIFE CHOICES NOW. but seriously, hire this intelligent, sweet woman. She made me want to give her all of my money.

mt gulian wedding - groomsDelivered above and beyond our vision…

Angela and her team delivered above and beyond our vision for a rustic, elegant fall foliage wedding at Mount Gulian Historic Site in Beacon, NY. For nearly a year, we worked with Angela on planning, design and execution, and she covered every base (and many bases we would never have thought about) with our style and preferences in mind. Her expert network of vendors were amazing, true partners in achieving our dream wedding and managed as one seamless operation by Angela. We also managed to have plenty of fun along the way. Highly recommend Angela and Elite for New York and Hudson Valley weddings.

helsinki hudson - same sex weddingAngela made sure we didn’t forget anything…

We booked Elite for month of planning because we had our own vision and our own vendors, but we didn’t want our day to be too hectic. And I’m so glad we did; everything ran incredibly smoothly on our wedding day and it was as stress-free as possible! Additionally, Angela made sure we didn’t forget anything and made extremely helpful suggestions when our ideas didn’t seem very practical. Our wedding was amazing, memorable, and fun and we would not have been able to create such a wonderful event without Elite’s extremely capable assistance.

elm rock inn…I could not have imagined having my wedding without her!

From the Bride…

I cannot speak highly enough of Angela and her services as day-of coordinator. Although at first I questioned whether we would be able to budget for a coordinator, I could not have imagined having my wedding without her! I believe she was essential to making my wedding day a success. From the start, Angela was professional and thorough, consulting with my fiance and I in all matters and serving as a liaison with our other vendors. She made sure that everything was planned to a T and our special day would go off without a hitch.

On the day of the wedding, Angela and her assistant Stephanie worked tirelessly to get everything set up based on my directions. I was amazed by the final results – they took my disorganized pile of decorations and put together everything exactly as I had pictured it would be! She took on all of the logistics of the wedding, leaving me to enjoy my day stress-free. She worked around the challenges my unique venue presented and came up with brilliant solutions at every turn. My other vendors expressed their amazement at how organized and detail-oriented Angela was, and were pleased to have had the opportunity to work with her. Even if you have a small wedding, I highly recommend a skilled day-of coordinator like Angela to take the weight off your shoulders and allow you to focus on your guests and your spouse.

From the Groom…

We were so happy with our decision to have Angela as our wedding coordinator. Despite distance and a huge separation between myself and my (new) wife and Angela, she left no details out, and had pleasant Skype conversations planning for the big event. She is also extremely proactive, contacting our DJ, venue/caterers, photographer on her own initiative, and made sure everything was straight. On the day of the wedding, her and her team worked tirelessly getting everything ready. Angela and her sister ran rampant during the whole wedding, nearly exhausting themselves to ensure our wedding went perfect. It was an amazing day and was largely because of Elite Wedding and Planning. I would not hesitate to recommend them..

surprise summer camp wedding

She is the ultimate planner and we recommend her to all!

We don’t know what we would have done without Angela as our wedding planner. She went above and beyond each step of the planning process to catch all the things we missed and make sure there was continuity the day of the event between all the vendors and us. We gave her some decorations and the freedom to setup all the tables and her creativity really shined!! She ensured everything was perfect and kept all the other vendors on track and on time. She consulted me throughout the night if I needed anything and made sure we ate some food!! When guests started to leave towards the end, she was able to think on her toes and call the sparkler send off a bit earlier and just rocked it and was flexible! She is the ultimate planner and we recommend her to all!

vintage dresser wedding cake standShe’s really good at what she does…

Angela was a pleasure working with. We kept in touch through email and did a few face time calls as the time went by. We went with her vendors for all of my wedding rentals (Tables, Chairs, Tents etc). A day before my actual wedding there was a crazy storm which blew away all of my tents. These tents were so big and pretty expensive, I couldn’t believe what just happened. I called her in a panic and she came right down, called up the company & rearranged them to come out and fix this massive problem.
