"Highly recommend, Erica is amazing!!! After planning my wedding for a year, I realized I did not want to deal with anything on the day of, so I started looking for a day of wedding coordinator. Graylie Events had excellent reviews, great business ideals (including a focus on being eco-friendly), and a price in our budget, so we chose them to work with and we’re so glad we did! I’m a coordinator myself and have worked many events, but I’m not as familiar with weddings, so even with all my research and planning Erica still helped me fill in a lot of gaps leading up to the big day. I was so grateful to have someone experienced who could double check everything and offer helpful advice. Plus, on my wedding day I got to hand over everything to Erica and not have to worry about anything but enjoying the whole experience!!! Highly recommend you book her to help you with your special day!!!!"

"...cool-headed, detail-oriented approach..."
"I strongly endorse Erica Richards and Graylie Events after an incredible experience partnering with them to produce Parent University's come-back, in-person parent education event. The number of variables we had to take into consideration due to the pandemic meant we had to stay nimble, pivot plans multiple times, take extra precautions and triple down on our communications and messaging. Erica's cool-headed, detail-oriented approach made a challenging process smooth and enjoyable. Our event was a HUGE success and we could not have done it without Graylie Events!"

"...best experience we've had with an event planner..."
We wanted to throw a wedding celebration party for some friends and didn’t know where to start. We stumbled upon Graylie Events and we’re so happy that we did. Erica was awesome! We exchanged a few emails to discuss what we were looking for and our budget, and then she took it from there and handled every aspect of the event planning - finding venue and catering options, scheduling and ordering, and even sent out invitations for us and managed the RSVPs. Erica made it so easy for us and worked around our busy schedules. Most importantly, the party was exactly what we wanted! This was the best experience that we’ve had with an event planner. We would recommend them to anyone and will definitely use Graylie Events again!

"Erica is an amazing listener..."
"Erica is brilliant at her job! She is a literal rocket scientist bursting with ideas. I have seen her design and execute large scale events under very particular and difficult circumstances (COVID), and she managed it all with warmth and charm. Erica is an amazing listener and brings her passion for success to every event. I can't recommend her highly enough!"

"...confidently and stress-free!"
"Erica is a joy to work with! Her attention to detail, no matter how small, always allows our events to go off without a hitch!
Erica's positive energy, organization, and attention to detail allowed us to be fully present at our event. It was such a gift having someone manage every step of the event process from start to finish. Knowing we had an event expert on deck allowed us to move through our event confidently and stress-free!"

"...and to feel absolute trust..."
"Erica is wonderful to work with. Her incredible organization and attention to detail ensure that events run smoothly from beginning to end. She brings the client vision to life with care, precision, and thoughtful touches, and brings a collaborative and warm approach to all stages of planning. On the day of the event, it is so reassuring to know that every detail has been considered and taken care of and to feel absolute trust that Erica will handle any hiccups that might happen day of or during the event. Her unflappable calm and meticulous preparation will handle anything life throws at you! I would absolutely recommend Erica and Graylie Events to all my friends and coworkers for their future events."

She communicates clearly, collaboratively, and timely to ensure that all involved are on the same page. Even the most minor details remain a priority for Erica, which allows for her events to be seamlessly set up for success."

"...a lovely, fun atmosphere..."
"Erica was key in planning a festive "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" baby shower for my wee one and me. From the invites to the food, decor, and entertainment, Erica created a lovely, fun atmosphere where we could celebrate with close friends and family. In advance of the shower, Erica sought my input on party themes; once she had a solid feel for the type of party I would enjoy, she surprised me with a thoughtful and sweet final theme. Erica showed great attention to detail, and she was proactive and attentive when it came to guests' needs. I couldn't recommend her more!"

"...pulled out all the stops..."
I worked with Erica to plan, decorate, and host my wedding shower. I was thrilled with the event and so were my guests! I wanted a camping theme shower and Erica pulled out all the stops -- from sweet little invitations to a S'mores fire pit, forest decorations and themed appetizers and cocktails. She also emceed fun games and activities that kept things lively and all of us laughing! I had a range of attendees including parents, grandparents, aunts, sisters and college friends and everyone had a wonderful time. Thanks so much Erica for a great event!
