Liz is awesome! She went above and beyond throughout the entire process to make sure we were on top of everything and no details were forgotten. Our wedding was perfect and we owe so much to Liz for making it happen! Could not recommend working with her enough!

I don’t think there’s a high enough character-limit to say everything I’d like to about Liz. She was a consummate professional and became an essential part of our wedding planning. Her calm demeanor was a needed counter-point to the stress of the planning, but her even-keel should not be mistaken for passivity. She did not hesitate to go to bat for her clients and get things done in our best interests at every turn. Our concerns were her concerns and our stresses were solvable problems for her. On the wedding day, there was an issue that was supposed to be sorted by the venue, but the ball had been dropped. Liz jumped into action and worked behind the scenes to fix the issue just in time. She literally saved our reception by getting the lights on for us. Liz was so attentive, easy-going, and invested during our planning that I’m personally going to miss seeing and talking to her. Our wedding turned out to be a beautiful day and everything that was in our control was handled and buttoned-up by Liz. Her investment to us and the event meant so much. We have already recommended her to a friend and will not hesitate to do so in the future.

Hiring Something New Events as our month-of coordinator was the BEST decision we made!! We had a lot of moving parts for our all-day, fusion Christian-Hindu wedding and Liz was the #1 reason why we were able to make it all work. From communicating with vendors in the weeks before the wedding, to making last-minute decisions, rehearsing with the bridal party, and anticipating potential issues along the way, Liz had it all under control and our families and we were consistently amazed with her organization, poise, and professionalism, not to mention her calm demeanor which was (thankfully!) contagious. Liz even spent time with us long before her month-of duties technically started, including helping us find other vendors and attending our tasting and taking notes. She also didn't bat an eye when our small number of hotel welcome bags we asked her to deliver to 4 different hotels turned out to be a huge number of very large bags that needed to be delivered to specific guests (it was an Indian wedding, what can I say). She and her assistant somehow also managed to run back and forth throughout the day between our hotel and the venue--picking up/dropping off outfit changes, decor, etc--without missing any key details. Totally agree with the other reviewers who say she is worth MUCH more than what she charges. Do yourself a favor and hire SNE for your wedding!!

Liz was absolutely, hands down a life saver. She is very knowledgeable, incredibly nice, and she gets the job done. She took care of all the last minute details, kept me involved and updated, and was just an overall awesome person to work with. I always felt comfortable asking her questions or giving her the freedom to do what she though was best. Our wedding ran so smoothly because of her. She took my extremely vague decoration descriptions and made everything look beautiful! Book her now!!

Who would have thought that there would be snow during an April wedding? Not us... and of course our ceremony was supposed to be outside and our reception was under a covered pavilion. Liz was amazing and helped us to come up with a back-up plan well in advance as she kept an eye on the weather weeks before the big day. A few days before the wedding, Liz even stopped by to help transport some of the things we would need at the venue. Liz was patient and very responsive throughout the entire process with a few challenges that we faced before and during our wedding. We did not have a long list of vendors because we were so blessed to have very talented friends and family who were willing to help us out for the big day. Even so, Liz reached out to everyone who played crucial roles and made sure that everyone knew what to expect and when. On the day of, she worked with the team of people from our venue and my family to decorate and we (the bride and groom) never had to worry about what the ceremony site would look like when we walked down the aisle. During the reception, Liz worked with our DJ to stick to our timeline as well as she could and transported all of our gifts to a safe place without us ever having to ask. Overall, Liz was super helpful and worth every penny and more!

I cannot say enough about how phenomenal Liz was as our day-of-planner!! We are still on Cloud 9 about how perfect our wedding went and we could seriously not have pulled it off without her. She stepped in several weeks before our event, contacted and confirmed with all of our vendors. She really took charge and put both of our minds at ease. She is super prompt and quick with responding, anytime I had a question, I could contact her and I would have an answer within minutes, no matter the time of day. The day of our wedding, she was literally a mind-reader. She knew exactly what I needed even before I asked her and had everything taken care of. Not to mention, how incredibly calm she is. She also came out to our house and picked up all of our decor and extra stuff the week of the wedding, and then after it was over, took home all of our stuff, cards and gifts and brought it to our house. She is a true professional and you can tell that she gets joy out of making peoples wedding visions come true. We think she is literally worth at least 3 times what she charged and could not be happier that we chose to have Liz help to make our day so special, unforgettable and perfect. Thank you for everything Liz!

Liz was absolutely amazing. My wife and I never got stressed in the weeks leading up to the wedding or during the wedding itself and that is in large part due to Liz. She was prompt in her communication, reminded us of deadlines, and ensured our vision was carried out. It was just amazing. She really lightened our load by being in touch with all the other vendors so we could focus on just getting married to each other! I highly recommend!

I can't imagine my day going so smoothly without Liz. I felt immediate stress relief as soon as Liz entered the picture. She communicated with every vendor and made sure everyone had the same wedding day schedule.

Many couples debate whether they should hire a wedding coordinator; do yourselves a HUGE favor and grab Liz Arline while you can!! A good wedding coordinator will put you at ease, a GREAT coordinator like Liz, will remove every worry and anxiety from your mind. From day one, Liz was professional, amiable and organized; she was in constant contact with all of our vendors and made sure everyone was on point. She was receptive and responsive to all of our inquiries and always replied professionally and promptly. The peace of mind she provided by being the “go-to” person on our wedding day was invaluable!! Give yourself a pre-wedding gift and hire Liz Arline!

I couldn't have done this without Liz. Of all the crazy amount of money you spend on the wedding, no one should do this without someone like Liz helping them. She was fabulous. Highly recommend.
