DON'T TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT...
"I worked with Elise of Revel + Bloom for almost two years throughout my entire engagement as a full service planner. I researched coordinators for quite some time, met with close to 20 in person and 2 via Skype, and FINALLY met Elise and I'm so thankful I did! I initially choseher because she seemed to really hear what I was saying and understand the issues I was anticipating with family dynamics and planning hurdles and she specialized in mountain weddings. Full disclosure- I'm a very "Type A" person, but I'm also somebody who when given too many choices becomes paralyzed with "What If" scenarios and the fear of choosing the wrong vendors was so terrifying to me so I knew I needed a full service planner from day one. I was also trying to plan more up front so I could relax a little and have my top choices for vendors so I asked a lot of Elise two years out which in hindsight was kind of nuts. Elise was very sensitive to my budgetary concerns and began her process by having me and my now husband prioritize all categories of a wedding (Music, flowers, attire, paper, etc.) and then built us a customized budget! It was so necessary for us to figure out what was important to both of us and then when it came down to spending a lot of money at once on vendors it was much easier to say "That's ridiculous, I'm not spending that" or "It's ___ over budget, but it's the most important thing to me". After building our budget, Elise and I had multiple design meetings and shared pictured back and forth so every vendor she recommended was intended to match my aesthetic and vision and she pared down the options for me so I wouldn’t be overwhelmed. I could go on for pages about how incredible Elise was to work with and everything she put into our wedding and the planning process to take stress off of me and put me at ease. There’s no telling how many hours she spent behind the curtain working to put things together for me that I’m unaware of. The day of our wedding Elise arrived and the first words out of her mouth were “How are you doing?” and she genuinely was a precious friend to me in the whole process. She was my pitbull when I needed a boss to handle a situation, and she was my shoulder when I needed to freak out to somebody, she was my encyclopedia for all things wedding and she did all of it with a calm, cool, collected manner beyond her years. Her two assistants she brought to my wedding were there for anything and everything I needed with smiles and the most sincere care for how things were going and what they could do to make my day run smoothly and perfectly. I know I’m forgetting other key things that are important to other brides but I promise Elise and her team are worth their weight in gold!! From her selections of vendors, the meetings the attended with me, every little e-mail, text, and call she responded to at odd hours, managing my expectations and encouraging me along the way… she’s a true friend and precious woman with a beautiful eye for design who is PHENOMENAL at her job and loves what she does and it shows."
"I was lucky enough to find Revel + Bloom to help us with our Day of Coordination. Elise was amazing every step of the way. The things that we were stressed about: flow of the wedding, timeline, order of events, ceremony content - were all things that Elise didn't even bat an eye at and she was there to help us with all the direction that we needed. Knowing that on the day of our wedding we didn't have to lift a finger at the venue was so amazing. We were able to be with all our loved ones and enjoy the time together without having to worry about any of the setup. Elise was there to help coordinate all the vendors and make sure that all lines of communication were open. Throughout the wedding she and her team were there anytime we needed them to switch something around, ask questions, and make sure behind the scenes everything was moving on time and in an organized manner. Revel + Bloom allowed us, and our family to truly enjoy our special day without having to worry about all the responsibilities that go along with planning a party for 100. Revel + Bloom truly has a passion for what they do and it is apparent in every interaction that we had with them. We respect them as people and a company and we cannot recommend them enough."
"There is ONE word to describe my wedding: MAGICAL. I owe so much of that to Elise Seagren of Revel+Bloom and her fabulous team. Elise is organized, punctual, experienced, and creative; but most of all, she is PASSIONATE about what she does. From the jumpoff, I told Elise that I was going to be a very hands-on bride and the majority of her work would involve would involve the day-of execution. She completely GOT me. Throughout the entire planning process, she guided me whenever necessary and really helped me stick to deadlines (like many other people out there, I'm a procrastinator)! On the big day, considering there were so many moving parts, R&B did a stellar job ensuring that everything went as smoothly as possible. For example, they went out of her way to pick up and return some rentals for my "Red Carpet Movie Premier" wedding. I was seriously impressed with how calm and collected Elise stayed from beginning to end. My husband was shocked by how stress-free I was on our wedding day! When all was said and done, Andrew and I looked at each other and could not believe that it had gone so well. We were sad it was over and wanted to get married again the next day. Many people told us that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. It was definitely the best wedding I have ever been to! Elise and her team bring so much to the table. Rest assured that if you go with R+B, you will have a wedding of a lifetime. <3"
"We knew that day we met Elise in her office that we would hire Revel and Bloom. Elise took the time to get to know us and to get a feel for my Daughter's vision for her wedding. My goal was to have a FUN and STRESS FREE wedding and we got exactly that. The vendorrecommendations were great and everyone we selected was awesome. A big must for me was that our guest be treated with complete respect. I have been to a few weddings in the past few years where the wedding planner was more like a "Bridezilla" planer. Not cool. Elise stayed completely in control and on top of everything. She treated everyone with the utmost respect. She was tireless and so professional. Best decision ever and would do it again!!"
KATHY- MOTHER OF THE BRIDE
"Elise Seagren with Revel + Bloom was/is amazing. I honestly can't think of words that could even express my gratitude for what she was able to do for us for our wedding. As an out of state couple, trust was a big factor for us and Elise had it within minutes of our phoneconsultation. She was able to take what we felt was a very broad, non-traditional vision and execute it perfectly. She is incredibly creative, communicative, organized and a joy to be around. We had a wedding that was partially Military and partially non-traditional and she nailed both aspects with what seemed be a natural ease. We never felt stressed, even being on the other side of the country, with her at the wheel of our wedding. I have to also mention the additional care, professionalism and fun that Emily with Revel + Bloom brought to us as she assisted Elise. I can't think of one thing I would have changed, other than I wish our engagement had been longer so we had the chance to work with Elise longer. Is it too soon to have her plan a vow renewal?"
