ANNIE & MICHAEL

With a shared loved for exquisite details, Annie and Michael set out to create a memorable winter night for their guests in celebration of their wedding. The Estera Events team worked to concept a romantic evening, inspired by their moody dark color palette. Estera Events drew their inspiration from royal English weddings, Cathedrals, Annie's love for fashion, and the feeling of warmth that's felt when dining amongst a tree filled space.

ANNIE, ESTERA EVENTS BRIDE

"SERIOUSLY A DREAM AND WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE WITHOUT YOU AND YOUR TEAM"

COURTNEY & SEAN

"THEY ARE all-around superhumanS!"

They went over and above to make sure we felt comfortable and confident in all of the decisions we made, never pressured us in any way, were extremely time-oriented and organized, and brought their own creativity and design talents to the process.  If you want a planner who is always one step ahead of you, look no further! Also, we were extremely impressed with Estera Events as a whole as they have very professional systems and relationships in place, which added to the reliability and efficiency of the entire process. Forever grateful for Estera!

MOLLY & SHAI

A REVIEW FROM MARGIE, MOTHER OF THE BRIDE

I would give Estera Events a 10-star rating for the wedding planning and support services they provided to our family if it were possible. They were the linchpin in making Molly and Shai's wedding beautiful, flawless in scheduling and execution, super fun, and truly memorable. No detail escaped their attention. They are consummate professionals who are a joy personally to work with - warm, accommodating, flexible, timely, extremely well organized, and gracious. I could not recommend Estera Events more highly.

KATIE & JIM

"I'D LIKE TO NORMALIZE MISSING YOUR WEDDING PLANNER AFTER THE WEDDING."

They understood the vibe Jim and I were going for, and were such great creative partners – the ideas just flow from them! The questions they asked us to get an understanding of our taste were not run of the mill but poignant, and if I made an obscure reference to a certain fabric or hotel design – they always knew exactly what I was talking about. The understood us from jump in such a way that I wondered if we were friends in pre-school or something!
