Edna was incredible to work with! She was not only creative, but professional,courteous, and calm under pressure. Our situation was unusual because we already had an event planner when And Butterflies Too Events was hired to help us coordinate the church. (We received a last minute financial gift from a close family member, and our initial planner was unable to handle two separate locations at that point.) We were naturally concerned about the continuity of the design between the church and the reception venue since we would now be working with two event planners; however, Edna is the consummate professional and immediately put our worries to rest. Being sensitive to our unique situation, she worked tirelessly with the church and its staff to ensure that our wedding did not seem disjointed and that the church and reception venue's décor was seamlessly bridged. She worked independently and with the church's in-house coordinators to ensure that the colors at the church and the venue matched perfectly. She made sure the proper chairs were in place in the chapel and decorated, and the layout for 150 guests was optimal. She also coordinated the floral design, placement, and displays for our special day. She executed her responsibilities flawlessly. As you can imagine, our wedding was amazing! We owe a lot of its success to And Butterflies Too Events and their amazing leader Edna Blackwell.James & Moneka Gilis - May 2, 2016
Having And Butterflies Too plan and design my wedding was the best decision I made. Candice, Edna and their staff were absolutely amazing on the day of and during the planning.
Candice as a planner was very organized and there to help. I found I had a lot of questions where I just wanted to know what other brides were doing. Yes, I could have spent time researching online, but I trusted her opinion. She was there to help me deal with the stress and answer my questions. I never had a problem contacting her or feeling like our wedding wasn't her first priority. The day of I just showed up and got married! No freaking out her team handled everything. Even when my mom hit the bar a little too hard (it was a stressful day for her!) Candice talked to the bartender for me.
I choose to also have a design package. I knew what I wanted, but am easily side tracked. I wanted some one to make sure my ideas had cohesion. Edna just got me. I felt like I was able to tell her a theme and color scheme and she ran with it. She communicated her ideas and all I could say was YES! I became so excited about her ideas I let her surprise me with some of the details. I just knew I would love what she did. Edna helped negotiate my floral and rental contracts too! I gave her my budget and she even saved me money with her negotiations.
Like I said best decision EVER!Jeaninne Baca - #
We had the pleasure to witness a collaboration of mother and daughter at their best. They made this experience fun and exciting yet still were very business oriented and professional. There were times when we were clueless of what was in store for us. At the beginning when we met with Candice and her Mother they both laid out the plans while making it very personal and attentive to our needs and requests. They were instrumental in executing our vision for our special day. People still talk about how beautiful our wedding was. It was a perfect reflection of the two of us. Again thank you Candice and Edna for making our day extra special!
Love always.Lynn & Peggy - 2014
WorldClass, that's the level of perfection received working with Edna and company. Going down the road of trying to prepare a wedding can be very daunting. Working with Edna made the process a afterthought. From start to finish Edna's amazing vision of style, class, perfection and attention to detail took front center with making our wedding such a spectacular event.
Reliable, caring, patient are just some of the many words that cannot begin to describe how great and dedicated she was to making the wedding of our dreams come true. I want to thank Edna for helping me from start to finish on my wedding day. You were the key instrument in its success and I could not be more grateful!
All of my hopes and dreams came true due to your unbelievable efforts and hard work. You were able to hear my vision and execute every detail, I was so happy when we walked into the reception room and everything turned out as I had imagined! Everything was great! Any bride is truly lucky to have you as their coordinator. Edna went far above and beyond any expectations I had. It was such a relief to know you were there on our wedding day to handle any hiccups specially with planning my wedding IN ONLY 3 weeks. A+++, 5 stars amazing.
