Elizabeth is amazing. Hands down the best. Elizabeth was truly a life saver. Completely organized and on top of her stuff. I literally didn't have to think of anything because I know she already thought of it. Without her our guests would have being eating lasagna with their hands. My now husband and I thought we could do everything by ourselves but once Elizabeth came into our lives we quickly realized how much trouble we would have been in if it weren't for her. She made our wedding beautiful and she will make yours too!

TLDR: Lizzie is amazing and you should hire her immediately. She is worth all the money and you should tip her on top of that because she is seriously fantastic and a genuinely kind and good-hearted person on top of being a talented and thorough wedding planner. I plan on bombarding her with life updates forever because she is so awesome I don't want to say goodbye!
Hiring Lizzie was the best decision we made for our wedding. Initially my husband and I were unsure if we wanted to spend the money on a planner, but I am so happy that we did (but I'm not sure we would have felt that way if we hadn't gone with Eastmade!)
We hired Lizzie for our month-of planning, but she did so much more than just month of coordination. We had an extremely long engagement (2 years) and throughout that time Lizzie was always available via phone and e-mail whenever I had questions. I asked her for vendor suggestions, wedding decor ideas, and even more leading up to the month-of. She was always responsive, caring, and warm and really considerate of us as a couple. We actually went with her DJ suggestion, which was also another excellent recommendation and decision (basically trust Lizzie she is really good at what she does).
Here are some examples of why Lizzie is seriously amazing if you are unsure whether or not you should hire her (JUST HIRE HER ALREADY):
-She made sure all our contracts were aligned (apparently a bunch of the times were mismatched... GOOD THING WE HAD LIZZIE TO FIX THIS)
-I literally fell to the floor at one point and meekly asked her to take off my shoes AND SHE DID (and not begrudgingly, like she did so lovingly as if I hadn't asked her to do something ridiculous)
-After a disastrous walk through with our caterer she bought me coffee and calmed me down and she also told me my shoes were pretty (WHICH I REALLY NEEDED AFTER THAT WALK THROUGH)
-She dealt with every bride's nightmare... WEDDING CRASHERS. And she did so quietly and smoothly so that I had no idea until after the wedding!
-And seriously so much more!!!!

Working with Elizabeth in planning my wedding was one of the best decisions we made! She is so organized and friendly, and has lots of experience with all the Maryland area venues from years of playing in her trio group. She was able to help me decide on a color scheme and suggested some cute details I would have never thought of. She also helped us stay on track regarding the timeline of everything, which can be very overwhelming for a first time bride!!! I cannot recommend hiring a wedding planner enough, especially a savvy one!
