I don't even know if I have the words to describe how wonderful After Yes is! Elizabeth was always full of good ideas and completely understood my "vision" for the wedding. Throughout the entire process she went out of her way to make a connection with me and truly understood my wants and needs. You can tell she puts a lot of focus and detail into each individual wedding that she plans and makes each bride feel like they are one-of-a-kind! The day of the wedding was just as great. My husband and I did not have to worry about a single thing!

You cannot do better than the team at After Yes. Period. You will get the wedding you want. It will be personal, imaginative, seamless. Anything you can dream of (whether it be rustic, romantic, urbane, vintage, pinterest-worthy, martha stewart-worthy) they will turn into a reality. And you will feel confident that every detail is being well cared for by this patient, considerate, intelligent team of women. I am truly grateful to Elizabeth and Amanda for all of their care and work!!

Elizabeth and Amanda with After Yes were great! They were so helpful in suggesting vendors and helping pick the ones that seemed to be the best fit for our wedding. On top of all the planning, their day of coordination was amazing! On the day of our wedding, I didn't have a single ounce of stress. They took care of everything, from the time table to coordinating all the vendors, from making sure everything ran smoothly to even telling us how to cut the cake. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect thanks to After Yes!
