“Gabrielle and Lorraine are experts at what they do. Their business is professional, they are organized, sensitive, thorough, and honest. Their taste is impeccable. I wholeheartedly trusted them with every detail of our wedding planning and actual day. They are so professional: Gabrielle and Lorraine replied to emails within the hour from day one. They were always reachable and responsive, and always had answers to our many questions. They dealt with family politics with tact and grace, offered practical solutions to conflicts, and did it all with a smile. They are beyond organized: they created an epic spreadsheet customized for all aspects of our wedding and updated it regularly with new information. This way, they kept track of everything from our budget, to guest list, accommodations, other vendors, timetable, etc. in a transparent way that we could view and also contribute to. We had regular in-person or telephone meetings to check in. They were warm and personable: they immediately charmed not just my husband and me, but our families as well. They were such a pleasure to communicate with, talking to them always put us at ease and made us feel cared for. When I say thorough- I mean THOROUGH. I can be a little anal about details, but the Wiles put me to shame with their management of everything. They thought of every single tiny detail from town noise ordinances (the wedding was at my parents house) to outdoor heaters, to flower corsages for my mother and mother in law, and gift bags for our guests. My husband and I were able to relax and be guests at our wedding, knowing that Gabrielle and Lorraine totally had our backs. They thought of and took care of EVERYTHING. Lastly, their taste. I actually cannot praise this enough. I am very picky in terms of aesthetic and my husband and I did not necessarily share the same idea of our ideal wedding look. Gabrielle and Lorraine blended our preferences into the most beautiful event. They honored all of our requests and elaborated on them. They truly captured our personalities in the look and feel of the event, and I trusted them implicitly. They are the real deal!”
“Lorraine & Gabrielle were the brains and muscle that made our daughter's wedding weekend a spectacular success. The day we met I mentioned that my goals were (1) to have my kids dreams met and (2) for my husband and I to be able to relax and be treated as guests at their wedding. They knocked this out of the park. Their guidance through out this process, venue shopping, looking at graphics, designs, invitations, fonts, flowers, candles, menus, etc, not a detail went unnoticed by them! Day of - they were incredibly vigilant about getting band to get the party started, coordinating speeches, etc. They were able to be in a million places at once - creating the most amazing floral arrangements while also ensuring the bridal party was rehearsed and ready to go. "Thank you" seems hollow to the team that delivered a lifetime family memory.”
“I was never the girl who dreamed about my wedding, but I always knew I would need a wedding planner when the day came. I interviewed several planners in the NYC/NJ area and went with Wile Events for several reasons - they seemed to immediately "get" our families and their spreadsheets impressed even my Type A brain. I also cannot stress enough how amazing it is to have an in-house florist & graphic designer for all printing needs. It cuts out two vendors from the long list of decisions to be made, and they seriously knocked it all out of the park. I was the worst type of "yeah I like it, I don't care" bride and they were able to dig deeper and really help pull out opinions I didn't even know I had. From helping us find the dream venue (and going back to re-visit venues because I was indecisive) to responding to my panicked emails at all hours of the night, they were a one-stop, always supportive, wedding planning machine. Once the weekend came even my constantly worried brain was able to relax and just be in the moment, and for that I will be forever grateful!”
"I don't know where to begin to show you our immense gratitude for everything you did to make our wedding day beyond perfect. The unique and personal details that you came up with weren't just visually stunning, but heartfelt, and told a story about [my husband] and I. Our hopes were to just have a beautiful wedding that guests would enjoy - but our expectations were exceeded a million times over with how gorgeous and special everything turned out. From all of the pre-planning to on-site event styling, you were the heart of this operation and we can't thank you enough! As someone who works in events professionally, I can't imagine all of the precision and care that you put into creating my dream day. Thank you again and I can't wait to work together again soon!"
“[We] cannot thank you enough for making our day so special. Everyone was amazed on the celebration we created. So romantic. The ambience created exceeded our expectations, and there are no words for the food and wine. I think we truly achieved the ultimate dinner party - with some kick ass dancing, of course. We heard from so many guests that this was the best wedding they have ever been to. They really felt like they were part of something special. We couldn't have done it without you.”
“I want to thank you personally for a wonderful, beautiful and romantic wedding for [my daughter and son-in-law]. You did a fantastic job, each detail [executed] to perfection. From the preparation, to the flowers, to the ceremony and after party, it was magnificent. The pairing of the food with the wine was an experience myself and many of the guests will never forget. It couldn't have been more perfect. Thank you for making my daughter and son-in-law's wedding the most wonderful day in theirs and their parent’s lives!”
"As an event planner myself, I set very high expectations for our wedding. I had plenty of ideas for our printed design needs, but Lorraine from Wile Events made those ideas come to life. She was so easy to communicate and work with, and our wedding invitation suite turned out perfect. Wile Events also designed my bridal bouquet which turned out far more beautiful than I could have imagined."
"I cannot say enough wonderful things about Gabrielle, Lorraine, and the amazing team at Wile Events! Our party was was not a large event, yet they approached it with all the importance and attention to detail of a full scale wedding. Their skill and talents created a space that people are still talking about today, months later!! They took our ideas and produced a vision that I was not aware was possible. I was over the moon with the results. Gabrielle and Lorraine were attentive to our every need, professional and lovely to work with. I cannot wait to plan another party just for the chance to work with them again."
"The Wile sisters took our floral and decor fantasy and made it a beautiful reality. They were very accommodating and customized every little detail to our personal style and liking. Gabrielle and Lorraine also went beyond the call of duty as florists in the months leading up to our wedding by providing us recommendations and advice regarding furniture rentals and room setup as well. I'm still receiving compliments on the greenery and florals from our March wedding. They are truly talented and with the times of bespoke wedding florals and decor. Couldn't have been happier with the way our wedding day felt and looked."
"Lorraine and Gabrielle put together a beautiful day of us. They considered details and elements that really pulled everything together. Also when last minute wedding problems arose, they stepped up to make sure to solve them for us. Excellent work."
"Wile Events far exceeded any expectations we had for our event. Not only were we planning on a quick deadline, but we had plenty of elements that were different and never done before. Lorraine and Gabrielle made us feel completely at ease the whole time and executed everything flawlessly. The day of the event, I felt completely useless as they were so on top of things. The event was stress free, beautifully done and a night to remember for all!"
"To say Wile Events exceeded our expectations would be an understatement. The entire wedding planning process was beyond delightful and happened so effortlessly. Lorraine and Gabrielle took our ideas and inspiration and ran with it. Wile Events brought our day to life in ways my husband and I never could have even dreamed. Our guest were BLOWN AWAY with every single person commenting that it was the most beautiful wedding they have ever been to. All credit goes to the Wile Events team. My husband and I HIGHLY recommend using them."
