"Evelyn was amazing through the whole planning process! Living in NJ with a crazy work schedule, I was looking for a wedding planner who would really be attentive to the details and bring our vision of the type of wedding style we wanted to life. I interviewed a few other companies in the area before finding Evelyn Francesca Events, but they didn't offer what I needed nor had a welcoming or comfortable vibe. I wanted someone who had a similar personality to ours, easy to work with and most importantly, honest, not just someone after our money.If you're planning an out-of-state wedding, Evelyn Francesca Events and her 3-carat package is definitely the way to go, you'll not only get a professional planner, but a trust-worthy girlfriend who will give you her honest opinion and advice..."

"Being a niave man, I didn't understand what a wedding planner did. When we met for a consultation Evelyn answered all my questions with care and put my mind at ease that at the very least she would be a tremendous help to my bride during this hectic process. Boy was I wrong; to say that I underestimated what Evelyn would do for us would be an understatement. Evelyn and her team brought a calm on the wedding day and immediately took charge and made everything organized. I am forever in her debt because she allowed me to focus on every moment and remember every detail because I knew she was ensuring all went smoothly. From where I stand Evelyn and her professional crew were the main reason that the day we had turned out to be the best day of my life. "
Evelyn was the best part about the wedding planning process! We live in Arizona but had our wedding in La Jolla California at the Estancia. I was so nervous about how I was going to work a full time job and plan a wedding from 3 hours away. Her constant support and guidance made the entire process easy and fun. She is such a sweet person and her love for weddings and her couples shows in her work. Once we booked her she provided numerous resources such as a checklist, budget keeper, AMAZING vendor referrals, guest list manager, and much more! Every vendor we booked was referred by her and they were all so wonderful.For the entire 10 months of the wedding planning process she was available and always checking up on us to make sure we were on track. I became the most indecisive bride when I started this process and had a hard time making decisions. I would just ask Evelyn what she suggested and she was always spot on! My family and friends were amazed at how well she pulled everything off the day of the wedding. She was so calm and was very polite and friendly with all the guests. Evelyn took care of everything! The final weeks leading up to the wedding were virtually stress free!

From the very beginning she was extremely helpful with phone calls, emails and meeting with us to make sure our wedding went as smoothly as possible. Our wedding was extremely busy and much more complicated than a typical wedding because we had 2 wedding ceremonies on the same day- one full Indian/Hindu ceremony (including Baraat/grooms entrance) with a full lunch after, followed by a traditional American wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception (all with outfit changes).Evelyn and her assistants were phenomenal and did so much more than simply coordinate. She was so patient with both of our families and helped with everything and anything. In addition to the usual wedding coordinator tasks such as directing our vendors and making sure the day went smoothly, she even drove downtown because the groom forgot his shoes! She helped me change outfits and get ready between ceremonies and I’m sure she did much more that I didn’t even realize. After the wedding we had food waiting for us in our suite and everything was in our room."

I found Evelyn through The Knot, based on her fantastic reviews. Honestly, she deserves every single one of them. Throughout the entire planning process, she provided support and guidance, along with patience and creativity. Evelyn is very organized and timely when she responds to emails, which I appreciate. We had multiple emails, phone and Skype conversations (i live out of town) and with each one I felt more reassured that I was "on track" with the planning process. I considered myself a fairly organized Bride, however she would bring to my attention little details and ideas that I would have never thought of. Her vendor recommendations are SPOT on. On the day of my wedding, she was incredible. She provided such a calm and stabilizing presence that me, my family and entire wedding party felt at ease. The entire event ran so smoothly, thanks to her. She understood and executed my vision PERFECTLY. Evelyn is meticulous and has an eye for detail. I cannot say enough great things about her and would HIGHLY recommend her. You will not be disappointed.
