There’s no better way to get to know your potential wedding planner than through those who’ve previously worked with us. Here’s a peek at what couples have said about the weddings we’ve planned for them.


“Hiring BW Theory was truly one of best wedding decisions we made. Elyse was extremely helpful, easy and fun to work with. She has great communication skills and really knew how to collaborate with wedding vendors to ensure our day ran as smoothly as possible. She listened to our wants and needs, and most importantly, respected our budget and style. The end result was a picture-perfect wedding day with not a moment of stress for the bride and groom.

Thanks to Elyse’s extremely detailed schedule and the extra help from her assistant Julia, our guests, vendors and my husband and I were all at the right place at the right time without a hitch. Aside from the seamless logistics, Elyse’s attention to the details helped to create the most intimate and lovely reception I could have imagined. After a handful of detail-driven meetings and phone calls, we collaborated (taking our budget and personal style into account), and Elyse executed our ideas with perfection on our big day. From the floor plan, to placement of the wedding signage and menus I had designed, to the jaw-dropping head-table – everything was gorgeous and enjoyable. We rented a lounge set from Bellwether’s newly designed inventory – each lush, custom piece was unique and added yet another beautiful aspect to our wedding.

Throughout the evening, and even now, months down the road, several of our guests have told us that our wedding was one of the best they have attended. Several even mentioned how great the wedding planner was, which just goes to show – Elyse was extremely personable, professional, courteous and kind throughout the entire event. Thank you, Elyse, our amazing wedding planner and now friend, for giving us the best wedding gift ever – a blissful day where we could fully enjoy our first moments together as newlyweds, as we celebrated with our family and friends by our side in the most dreamy setting. I would do it all over again if I could… maybe for our 10th anniversary!”


“I call Elyse and Katie my wedding fairy godmothers. Simply put, they made every wedding wish I had come to life. BW Theory designed, planned and executed almost every aspect of my wedding day, and did so in a way that was creative, unexpected, budget-conscious and glamorous.

As a bride who was looking for wedding reception that was not rife with all the wedding design clichés, finding BW Theory was a godsend for me. They had incredible vision for everything from invitations to decor, and were also masters of the schedule and overall event logistics.

On top of all this, they are both just kind, fun, sweet individuals who I am so glad to have gotten to know! Truly I cannot gush enough about this incredibly talented duo!!”

 “Katie and Elyse of BW Theory are an incredible dynamo of creativity, design and execution. For our wedding, they raised every detail to Pinterest-level perfection. They developed a vision for the wedding by refining our design ideas and working with the other suppliers to ensure a cohesive look. They made sure all of the little details were covered perfectly. Katie and Elyse were involved in every decision, and their experience and insight gleaned from countless high-end weddings was invaluable in executing the stunning but easy-going wedding we wanted.Katie and Elyse are fun to be around and enthusiastic about what they do. They are personable and professional, which our guests all commented on. I could not recommend these two more highly!”

“Our wedding day was beautiful, everything exactly as I wanted, because of Elyse and Katie. I had vague ideas (almost feelings) of what I wanted the day to be and how I wanted things to look. Elyse and Katie were able to pull that from me and help create the wedding of my dreams. They were fun and easy to work with and so creative, with killer design instincts. If you need a little direction, they are vocal about their opinions and what they think could work best. I definitely recommend them!!”

“It takes a team like BW Theory to make sure your special day is worry-free and just as enjoyable for the bride and groom as it is for the guests. We received many compliments and were told this was the best wedding some had ever attended! Elyse and Katie will steer you in the right direction so your wedding will have its own special signature. Highly recommended!”
