Testimonials

We truly value the relationships we build with our clients. Here’s what some of them are saying about their experiences working with us.

These two. Ugh. I am going to cry just writing this review. My wedding (during COVID) did not go as I would had originally planned it. I went back and forth – should I postpone? Should we just elope? It was such an emotional time for us. Holden and Derrick were there with us every step of the way. They gave me their honest opinions about what to do and helped me navigate through a very not fun situation. With their help, my wedding was even better than I could’ve imagined. I remember one time I emailed Holden at 1:00am Central time – he responded within minutes. That’s 2:00am his time. When I say these two will go above and beyond to make sure your wedding is exactly as you imagined it, I mean it. All of the little details you will let slip past you – they won’t. They know EVERYTHING there is to know about weddings and they will make sure everything has a place, a time, and is on the schedule. If you are on the fence about hiring a wedding planner… let me tell you. It is worth the money, especially if your money gets you these two fantastic gentlemen and their team. Hire them – you will not regret it. Holden & Derrick – you guys made my wedding an absolute dream and nothing I say or do could thank you enough.

Wedding planning during a pandemic is horrific. I was so discouraged every time a new regulation was put in place. When my husband and I had to find a new venue two months prior to our wedding day we scheduled a tour at Felt Estate. We knew immediately that we were going to get married in front of their chapel. I had not considered booking a wedding planner but under the circumstances we needed all the help we could get. Holden made sure the rest of the planning process was effortless for me. He communicated with all the vendors and kept me in the loop the entire time. He responded so quickly whenever I’d have a question and reassured me that the day was going to be perfect. The wedding day went smoothly and if any issue occurred I’m still not aware of it to this day. He even saved the day when we couldn’t figure out how to bustle my dress. Holden is amazing and I highly recommend booking him for your wedding.

We honestly could not have done this without you. From the very first time we met it was like you could read my mind for what I wanted out of our wedding. We deeply appreciate all your hard work and we know how lucky we are to have gotten to work with someone that is so talented at their job. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our special day one that we will never be able to forget.

We found Holden through a recommendation from friends who used him for their weddings. Trying to plan and out of state wedding during a pandemic would have not been possible if not for Holden and his team. They handled and communicated with rental company and caterer and completely had everything set up the day of the wedding beautifully. We had to bring in everything to our venue, so having his team handle everything the day of was wonderful that we didn’t have to worry about anything. Always was available to talk and discuss options for every part of the wedding and very easy to work with. They made the wedding day run smoothly.

Holden exceeded every expectation. He is insightful, creative, and exceptional at his craft. We experienced an unfortunate illness during our ceremony that caused quite a bit of panic, but Holden and his team remained calm and poised. They assisted guests, calmed the room, and guided the ceremony to its completion. His response was highly commendable. In the end, my wedding was absolutely beautiful, romantic, and more elegant than what I envisioned. Holden over-delivers and that is a personal attribute that is evident in his work. The man is stellar!!!

We worked with Holden & Derrick for month-of-coordination services at The Felt Estate in September. While their services were focused largely on the month of our wedding, they made themselves available for vendor recommendations, questions and advice the entire time. Every time we talked to Holden & Derrick, we would always feel so much better and calmer about what we were worried about coming in. (And that’s saying something, considering we were planning throughout the changing COVID restrictions & guidance). We trusted their expertise and recommendations implicitly, and it paid off. Our day went smoothly thanks to their advice & coordination. All of our vendors praised working with them, and we saw why. This was the best money we spent throughout the entire wedding process. If you are going back and forth on having a coordinator – DO IT & make it Holden Michael Events.
