"...Working with Erica these past months has been an honor. She keeps track of every tiny detail in a way that blew our minds. She has built amazing relationships with a community of excellent vendors. She worked so hard to get everything set to a tee, and then two days before the wedding a hurricane threatened it all...."

We came into wedding planning a bit skeptical, and we couldn’t imagine ourselves working with a wedding planner. When we decided to gather family and friends from all over for a destination wedding in Asheville, we knew we needed support. I remember when we reached out to Erica, we asked if she would be open to thinking differently and outside the box about weddings- we didn’t want to do something just because it’s traditional, but to approach each decision with intentionality. She said absolutely, and we could feel how down to earth, authentic, and open Erica is. Working with Erica these past months has been an honor. She keeps track of every tiny detail in a way that blew our minds. She has built amazing relationships with a community of excellent vendors. She worked so hard to get everything set to a tee, and then two days before the wedding a hurricane threatened it all. She worked tirelessly to think through options to keep our guests safe and happy, eventually finding a brand new reception venue, breaking down the events into two days, and redesigning everything. She did it all with grace and resilience and joy. And having her join us for some parts of the dance floor was a real treat :) We keep saying our weekend surpassed our wildest dreams, and so much of that is thanks to Erica. Thank you thank you thank you!

"...When it came to my wedding weekend, Erica was the most professional, fun, kind, and thoughtful coordinator I could ask for...."

Want the most beautiful, fun, custom, relaxed, and amazing wedding, and planning experience? HIRE ERICA WITH RISING FERN EVENTS! From the first call with Erica I knew she was a perfect match. She took the time to really get to know our vision and our top priorities for our wedding day. From there she guided us, keeping us on track. As we finalized the details not only did she work closely with my fiancé and I, she worked with my right hand lady, my mom. When it came to my wedding weekend, Erica was the most professional, fun, kind, and thoughtful coordinator I could ask for. Her and her assistant helped us to have the BEST day imaginable. Plus she can crush a dance floor like nobody’s business. Throughout this experience I had the best day of my life AND I gained a close friend. I highly recommend Erica with Rising Fern Events.

"...From our first convo I could tell she was responsive, organized, and just a genuine and down to earth person..."

Erica was our wedding planner and day of coordinator for our wedding in May 2021 at Highland Brewing in Asheville, NC. Words cannot even begin to describe how grateful we are to have had Erica in our corner—both throughout the wedding planning process and on our big day. When searching for someone to help us plan our destination wedding, I knew immediately after speaking with Erica that I wanted to work with her—from our first convo I could tell she was responsive, organized, and just a genuine and down to earth person. Already planning a destination wedding from over 1,000 miles away, and throwing in the added uncertainty of COVID, Erica was definitely an anchor for us in this crazy COVID storm; her attention to detail and follow through just blew me away. As someone who has an incredibly difficult time making decisions, Erica was incredibly patient, kind, and provided an impressive level of structure and organization to keep things on track. I always felt better after talking to her during or planning sessions and she remained committed throughout the process to making our dream wedding happen—even if it meant getting creative (like moving the entire post-reception party to the venue rooftop so we could accommodate dancing!) The day of itself couldn't have gone better. From vendor setup to decor, coordinating the wedding parties and everything in-between, Erica had it all handled. I never had to lift a finger, and was able to be fully present and enjoy the moment without having to worry about anything. (She even had a plate of food waiting for us at the reception so we would remember to eat!) She was also INCREDIBLY patient with my wedding party, who at times were like herding cats! In all it was an amazing experience, and I know our wedding day would not have run nearly as smoothly—nor would the decor have looked nearly as AMAZING—without her running the show. If you are in the market for a wedding planner and / or day of coordinator, I cannot recommend Erica enough. Her professional expertise paired with her shining personality and passion for making her clients’ vision a reality simply cannot be beat!

"...Not only did she nail the role of a coordinator, we also felt like we had been friends with Erica for years when we were working with her."

The wedding was a huge success, and we owe a LOT of that to this girl! She really knows what she's talking about when it comes to weddings - she can answer any question you have and has some really great recommendations and insight. Not only did she nail the role of a coordinator, we also felt like we had been friends with Erica for years when we were working with her. From our very first visit to The Farm we knew we wanted her to be part of our big day. There's nothing better than feeling completely comfortable with the person that has such a big role in one of the most important days of your life, and we felt like Erica really understood our wedding vision and made it all come to life! We felt completely stress free once Erica became highly involved the month leading up to our wedding because we knew we were in the best hands. Our experience with Erica was better than we could've imagined, and we really could never repay her! If you're looking for a coordinator who is friendly and fun, knowledgeable, a pro at dealing with any and all vendors, and who will even get out on the dance floor with you, Erica is the one!

"...She took the time to get to know us from the very beginning, and she worked tirelessly to ensure that the day we envisioned came to be, down to every detail..."

We had the great fortune of working with Erica as our day-of wedding coordinator, and we cannot stress enough how invaluable she was to making our wedding exactly what we wanted, and just SO stress-free. She is a committed, conscientious, thoughtful, and exceedingly capable wedding planner. She took the time to get to know us from the very beginning, and she worked tirelessly to ensure that the day we envisioned came to be, down to every detail. She asked questions of us and our vendors that we would have never thought to ask. She knows and navigates the wedding industry effortlessly. She’s also just a genuinely rad and great person, and it was a joy working with her and getting to know her in the process. Even though we hired her for day-of services, she was so sweetly involved and keeping up the whole way to make sure we were on track, it felt like she’s been with us the whole time! On the day of the wedding, we didn’t worry one single second that everything wouldn’t be flawlessly executed just as we dreamed it. And we were right. HIRE HER! Best money you’ll spend on your wedding.
