Kind Words

“The best decision we made while planning our wedding was, in general, getting a wedding planner. The best decision, in particular, was working with Liz. We had a great time working with Liz to plan our July 2016 wedding outside of Boston. We had some unique challenges; we live about 10 hours away and had to plan almost the entire thing via emails and phone calls. Liz was a consummate professional; she knew the terrain, understood what we were looking for, and linked us up with vendors who were able to realize it. Videographer with a drone? Yep. Ethically-sourced chocolate fountain? Check. Matching black Suburbans? No problem. Liz helped manage expectations, was a diplomat with our families, and was air-traffic-control on the big day. Could not have been happier with her work!”

“We hired Liz to help plan our daughters wedding held on 9/2/16. We originally hired Liz as a “Month of Management” but quickly changed it to a “Partial Coordinator”. This was a very wise decision. Though the wedding was small, there were lots of details involved. I wish I could adequately explain what an amazing job Liz did. The wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner reception were all stunning. It was a perfect day! Liz listened carefully to what we envisioned and executed it perfectly. Liz is quick to respond to emails and phone calls and is extremely organized. Liz was always eager to help – even if it was something that was not on her list of duties stated in the contract. We changed the location of the outdoor cocktail reception 4 days before the wedding due to weather concerns. Liz handled everything and it was was beautiful. Liz is such a gracious and kind person. She truly wants you to have the wedding you dream of and will do whatever it takes for it to happen.”

“We LOVE Elegant Aura!! Liz was our planner and handled everything with grace, elegance and a big smile on her face. She is an absolute pleasure to work with, has great and creative ideas, complete grace under pressure and a beautiful eye for detail (so important on to have someone looking at every little thing on your wedding day). We had the best day and we owe so much of it to Elegant Aura. We couldn’t have done it without them!! And we lived happily ever after!”

“Above and Beyond. Three words that describe Elizabeth Quill and her team at Elegant Aura. Liz is the best. She embodies everything a wedding planner should be! Wedding planner, best friend, sister, and confidant, she has literally helped me with every single aspect of wedding(and life) planning. She is always available and always positive. She has answers and solutions to every possible question and problem a bride could ever have. She remembers things I forget. She keeps me organized and focused. Liz has a super awesome way of supporting my vision within our budget and taste. She gives encouragement and makes the overwhelming task of wedding planning not just manageable but fun! I am pretty sure she has other clients, but she makes me feel like my wedding is her only one! She literally makes you feel like a princess! Liz is like a beautiful young fairy god mother! I genuinely do not know what I would do without her! Everything went smoothly and perfect on our wedding day in Liz’s hands! My one regret is not listening to all of her advice!!! Organized…check Accessible…check Optimistic…check Creative…check Practical…check Honest and trustworthy…check Reliable…check”

“Elegant Aura made our day perfect from start to end! I world very closely with Liz Quill when planning my wedding. When I first met her, I was really impressed with Liz’s knowledge and professionalism and knew right off the bat I wanted Elegant Aura to plan my wedding! From listening to my fears of everything I did not want to happen to helping me choose between different linens, Elegant Aura was there every step of the way to guide me in planning my wedding and enlighten me in areas where I had no clue what I was doing. Elegant Aura made wedding planning as easy and stress free as possible! After a couple of months of booking my venue, I suddenly began to find things about the space that I did not like. However, Elegant Aura linked me with some of the most amazing vendors, most of which I would have never have found on my own, who all came together to make the ballroom breathtaking! I also began to run into issues with the venue on how things would run the day of the wedding. Despite how much the venue did to want to do some things that I really wanted to have done, Liz advocated for me and made sure that everything we wanted was executed the day of. Despite the many clients they had, by the time we got close to my wedding, Liz had gotten to know me so well, that she could already predict what I would or wouldn’t like! I felt as though I had known Liz for years, and from the bottom of our hearts, we will miss working with her and having her around! If I could do it all over again, I wouldn’t choose any other wedding planner! Thanks to Elegant Aura, they transformed my ideas into reality and they made my wedding day from what seemed would be an absolute nightmare, into a stunning, dream come true! Thank you so much Elegant Aura, words can never explain how thankful we are that we met you and had the honor to work with you!”

“When we started the wedding planning process we had one major problem: Neither of us knew how to plan a wedding or even where to begin. My wife is from China and I am from the US. In American culture, the bride plans the wedding with her mom or Maid of Honor. However, in Chinese culture, the groom plans the entire wedding. Neither of us growing up thinking of planning a wedding or learning about it from friends that completed the process. Then, Liz of Elegant Aura came into our lives and saved the Big Day! We met Liz in May, 2015 and during that time told her that our wedding day was to be in the beginning of August, 2015. Not only was our wedding here in America in 3 months, but we were also planning a wedding in China that was to be a month after this one. The wedding in China required both of us to take a trip to China during the middle of planning the American wedding. Rather than trying to talk us out of the day for the American wedding, with it being only 3 months away, she told us that it can definitely be done and she would love to help us along the way. Liz seemed to be motivated by this challenge and excited to take it on with us. She gently noted that the shorter time frame would cause us to be busier during the wedding process, but it is honesty like this that makes Liz such a great wedding planner. The open communication makes her a part of the team and not just someone on the sidelines. Liz guided us along the process every step of the way and effortlessly incorporated our 2 week absence while we travelled to China into the overall plans. She helped push us to complete goals and always in a gentle and helpful way to keep us on track with our tight timeline. Wedding planning can be stressful at times, but planning a wedding together with my wife was an enjoyable experience giving us a chance to work and grow together. And when things got too difficult or overwhelming, we could always reach out to Liz with many, many questions, concerns or suggestions and she was always willing to help and offer her advice based on years of past experience, which was something we definitely lacked. Overall, hiring Liz as our wedding planner was a great choice and now we feel as if she has become a close friend!”

“I cannot say enough good things about Alison, Liz, and the rest of Elegant Aura. I’ll say below what I e-mailed to Alison shortly after our wedding:
“You were such a calming, organized, reassuring force from the very beginning. You helped find us the exact venues we wanted, hooked us up with all the most amazing vendors, were totally flexible when we introduced vendors into the mix whom you hadn’t worked with before, and were always so responsive.

The day of COULD NOT HAVE GONE SO SMOOTHLY without you and your incredible team! I have an image emblazoned in my mind of you basically force feeding me a banana, but ever so kindly. You were on top of all the timing, neither me nor Nick ever felt like we had to deal with anything except for our own tears, our parents felt like they could enjoy the day because of you…honestly, you were a fairy godmother that day. Seeing your smiling, encouraging face opening the doors as my parents and I walked into the ceremony honestly calmed me and gave me so much confidence for the day going forward. I also am aware of all the clean up and such that you and your team did the night of and after the wedding, and we are so incredibly appreciative of that.”

Alison and Liz met with us so many times before the wedding and were always organized with their notes and binders and ALWAYS enthusiastic. The team ran our rehearsal the day before and it gave everyone such a sense of reassurance. Elegant Aura is everything you want in a wedding coordinator: organized, smart, well-connected, professional yet accessible, and patient. However, what is remarkable about Alison and the rest of the team is their ability to connect. We miss Alison so much already, and everyone in the wedding party and in our immediate family felt like she and her team were part of the family.

We love Elegant Aura and are forever grateful for their impeccable services.”

“I cant say enough amazing things about Alison and Liz. I am a wedding photographer and have seen TONS of coordinators since I have been in business. Alison and Liz are by FAR the best that I have ever worked with. Whenever clients ask if I have recommendations I am sure to give their name. So when it was my turn to get married having Liz and Alison there was a LIFE saver. I always thought that because I am in the business that everything would be perfect and smooth. For the most part it was but the one minor bump in the road we had they were ON TOP OF IT. I mean I didn’t even have to worry one single bit. Just having them there was a huge sense of relief. Eric and I knew we had nothing to worry about. They are so comforting that having them there made the day even better. Whether it was having them run to go grab my bouquet, gather family for photos, calling the band to check on things they never skipped a beat. If you are looking for help with your planning you’re totally crazy not to use them. You would not regret it for one single second!! I was actually sad when they left my wedding!”

“It was a pleasure working with Liz and Alison at Elegant Aura events. They went out of their way to make sure no detail went unnoticed. Not only did they take care of logistical details, but they were helpful dealing with stressful family issues. The wedding went off without a hitch and I would definitely recommend them to anyone planning a wedding in the Boston area.
For my wedding I was going for a whimsical, vintage, garden feel. They understood the aesthetic I had in mind and had great ideas to help execute the theme. I was told by several people that my wedding was the best wedding they had ever been to. It could not have been pulled off without Alison and Liz’s hard work. Additionally, Elegant Aura Events prices their services reasonably and was willing to work within my budget. This was extremely helpful. I can’t say enough good things about these wedding planners. If you are looking for a month of planner or for the entire wedding planning experience look no further that Elegant Aura Events.”

“I had the pleasure of working with Alison and Liz on my September wedding. I felt an instant connection with them the first time we met and knew that they were a perfect fit for me. I tend to be a very detail-oriented planner and don’t particularly like to delegate, but Alison and Liz made it easy (and fun!) to trust them, hand over the reins and actually enjoy the whole wedding experience!

Throughout the whole planning process, they were always a phone call or e-mail away with answers to any question I had. They accompanied me on meetings with our vendors and site visits and always came with good ideas, a lot of enthusiasm and big smiles. The day of the wedding went absolutely perfectly, and I have Alison and Liz to thank for that. Every detail we had discussed was carried out seamlessly. Liz came to my house to check on me as I got ready with the bridal party, and Alison was there to greet us at the wedding venue as the car arrived. They waited with me as I prepared to walk down the aisle, ushered people to the right photo spots and even helped me Shout! out the mud stains on my train after dragging it through the garden ceremony. My friends and family loved them and we all felt like we were working with old friends.

I absolutely loved planning the wedding, from the day we got engaged through our actual wedding day. Alison and Liz made the experience fun and exciting; they eased the stress and made me feel comfortable and secure that everything was taken care of. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants an amazing and personal wedding experience, thanks to Alison and Liz ours was more perfect than we could have ever hoped!”

“When it came to planning our wedding, the best decision we made by far was to hire Liz and Alison. We decided to have a very short engagement and were worried that we wouldn’t be able to find anything. We reached out to Liz and Alison. They were so responsive! We met a couple of days later and they both immediately understood the kind of wedding we envisioned. As soon as we told them we would hire them they hit the ground running! within 24 hours my inbox was full of options for venues. Within 2 weeks we had a venue! Liz and Alison put so much passion into their work and it shows. It was absolutely wonderful to work with them.

They were both with us every step of the way and they made themselves available to us at all times. Sometimes I would spend so much time on the phone with them that I started to feel guilty for taking up all of their time! They provided much needed support when dealing with difficult vendors and they took it upon themselves to handle any complication. Their dedication does not stop at the planning stages. On the day of our wedding they made sure everything was absolutely perfect! They were looking out after our every need, not to mention they came prepared to handle pretty much anything, they even had heel protectors for me and pins to fix the bustle on my dress!

All of our guests loved our wedding and most of them are still talking about what a great job they did!

Everything they did, they did with a big smile on their faces. When you work with them you can’t help but have a great time! I highly recommend them to anyone who wants a unique and personalized wedding, thanks to them ours was better than we could’ve imagined :-)”
