“Growing up in upstate New York, I always imagined how beautiful the Hudson River would be as a backdrop for an outdoor wedding. Today, I am still overwhelmed with gratitude and happiness that it was the backdrop and setting for mine. Not only was the setting and weather perfect for the wedding, but the help my husband and I received that day and the months leading up to making it an event to remember in the fondest ways was absolutely the very best help anyone could ask for. The vendors all were so professional and worked well with each other to accommodate Douglas’ and my wishes, I must also mention how all the vendors – from the fantastic caterers, to the great ceremony musicians, to the exceptional band, to the amazing photographer – all thanked me for finding Erin Braun! Erin Braun was a godsend to me and Douglas, and I cannot express enough how much she made our wedding planning and the wedding day so remarkably smooth and genuinely enjoyable. I loved working with Erin from the very day I met her, and her sincerity, calming demeanor, sense of humor, vision, and professionalism stayed so constant throughout the entire planning process. Erin wears many hats; not only did she reach out to and manage logistics and timelines with all the vendors, she also designed our invitations, custom-made our gorgeous floral escort card backdrop, created the reception floorplan and seating lounge, and even hand-sewed my dress when it teared after the ceremony! I remember that moment, as well as the intricate details that showed how much care went into showcasing touches personal to me: my favorite flower at each place setting, the use of hundreds of flickering lights in the grass to echo the night sky, the time carefully allotted to surprise my grandmother with her favorite song – to which she brought our guests to their feet when she grabbed the mic! I will always remember the wedding day as being the happiest and most special day, when my husband and I were showered with so much love and surrounded by such warmth in good company. I will also always be thankful to all those that made the day as wonderful as it was, and especially Erin for making wedding day dreams come true.” – Jeanny and Douglas
