A peek at what your North Carolina
wedding could look like

“I cannot say enough positive things about Jordan and her team at Emily Jordan Events. When it comes to the planning process, Jordan was instrumental in helping design our big day. From helping me clarify my vision (which kept changing!) to picking the perfect vendors based on my wants, it’s like Jordan could read my mind. Jordan was on top of the entire process – we had most of our vendors booked a year out! – and kept us on pace. Having had only a few friends/family members get married in my lifetime, I was new to the process, and Jordan answered every question I had with kindness and empathy. Finally, on the day-of, Jordan and her team were a dream. We had several little things go wrong (tree sap on my dress from photos, a broken bridesmaids shoe, a bridesmaid dress that didn’t fit) and almost every problem was solved before I even found out about it. I didn’t have to make a single decision, talk to a single vendor, or solve a single problem. Jordan and her team made sure that I was able to enjoy every moment of our big day. I would highly recommend Jordan to anyone who asks.”
