Heather and Courtney did a fantastic job coordinating our wedding over the past 5 months. Not a single detail was overlooked…and best of all I didn’t have to worry about any of it! My family and friends were overwhelmed with the quality of vendors recommended by Heather and how they all worked together seamlessly to create the wedding of our dreams!

My fiance (now husband) and I Iive in Oakland, California, but decided to get married at a private residence up in Ashland because we love it there. Planning a long distance wedding (while I was also starting a new job) would have been impossible without Heather’s help. She introduced us to all our vendors and lined people up for our date before we even knew we would need them. For example, when I was doing a makeup “run through” about 8 months before the wedding (we had to plan some appointments far in advance because we were rarely in town), my makeup artist told me she’d already had three requests for her services on my wedding date that she had to reject since Heather had asked her to reserve the date for us. Heather was incredibly accessible, and there were times (as the wedding date neared) that we would send emails to her after 10PM and hear back from her within 20 minutes! She was incredibly organized, and my wedding day was completely stress-free because I knew she was running a tight ship. She also had a beautiful vision for our day, and I was blown away when I saw it come to life. I didn’t have a clear vision of how I wanted my wedding. Heather was able to figure out my style just by asking me questions (many of which were met with vague responses). My wedding was absolutely magical thanks to her. I had friends asking “How did this happen?!” because they were so in awe of how all the details came together so beautifully. They knew I wouldn’t have been capable of it on my own. Heather was worth every penny she charges, and I can’t say enough good things about her!

Heather and everyone that she asked to help her with my wedding did the most AMAZING job! She was so easy to work with and if you had the littlest of questions she would answer them for you. She could help with every detail down to the day of and she and her staff were nothing short of fantastic! Having a wedding coordinator is the most amazing idea you no longer have to work with every person involved in your wedding you can talk to a coordinator and she knows exactly what to do! Also everyone she recommended we use for various parts of the wedding were over the top amazing! Over all An Inspired Affair is definitly the number one group I recommend to anyone having a wedding. Ever. They are worth every penny and more and not only is your day amazing you actually have a relationship with the many people who helped you create it.

As far as planning our wedding goes, I never viewed it as something that would be difficult to do on our own. Gosh, was that a misconception (mostly on my part)! I was very ambitious about the whole process and quickly got overwhelmed with all the details. I forgot to enjoy being engaged to my new fiancé and suddenly found myself becoming “Bridezilla”. That’s when I opted to hire a Wedding Planner. Wow, let me just say that this has been a wonderful experience!  I wouldn’t have been able to make it without the help of Heather. Having a Wedding Planner allowed my fiancé and I to celebrate being together as an engaged couple as well as enjoy the planning process.

Thank you for all your organizing, creativity, support in planning and making our wedding as beautiful as we imagined. Without your vendors and time, there is no way it would have been as magical as it was. It truly was magical and we had so much fun during the entire event. You helped make it unique, real, warm and romantic…THANK YOU! AIA 8

Heather from An Inspired Affair help make my baby shower truly unique and special. I was vary pregnant at the time of the shower and very overwhelmed with the details. Heather from An Inspired Affair came in and saved the day for my baby shower. I was completely stressed with the whole process and she agreed to help me when I asked her a week before the shower. The results exceeded my expectations she brought my vision to life with the personalized decorations, special messages she collected from guests, and the awesome food displays. I was able to just relax and enjoy the moment and I definitely won’t be waiting till the last minute to employ her for our little guy’s first year celebration. I can’t wait to see what she can do with more time and look forward to enjoying the celebration stress free.

Heather did a tremendous job at the wedding and the months before as we planned the event. Every meeting before the wedding was productive and resulted in organizational charts and guidelines and a list of questions to clarified. All volunteers had clear instructions and all details were handled ahead of time. At the day of the wedding, everything went smoothly and Heather handled all details very calmly.

Heather was positive, kind and very easy to work with. She was the queen of check-lists and spreadsheets for all of the people in charge leading up to the wedding weekend and was very organized. She responded to emails thoroughly, gave thoughtful recommendations and offered extra help when needed. We needed every ounce of Heather leading up to our wedding and we don’t regret hiring her one bit! Thanks Heather for enabling us to have such a memorable weekend!

Heather from An Inspired Affair helped my husband and I create the epic wedding of our dreams! She was genuinely invested in our event and went out of her way to help with things like brainstorming how to achieve a certain look with decorations, giving advice on interviewing venders, planning the layout for the wedding and reception, and problem solving. Heather’s care for her clients is obvious from the integrity she puts into every part of her work. She returned emails and phone calls right away and took care to find out the things that were truly important to us. The day of the wedding my husband and I just got to enjoy ourselves knowing that Heather had our backs. She made sure everything was set up, we started on time, everyone was where they were supposed to be, all the venders were paid and everything was put away. If anything went wrong I never heard about it. On top of all of that she even wore a perfectly themed costume for our crazy 1920s circus wedding! I can’t imagine my wedding without Heather’s knowledge and support!!! We plan on hiring An Inspired Affair for our 10 year anniversary party!

For a day that is arguably the most orchestrated production of one’s life, it was imperative for my now husband and I that we find someone with skill, practicality, imagination and creativity to assist us in achieving our flawless wedding day. We were thrilled to find all of these characteristics in Heather! What is so often the daunting experience of trying to find the most ingenious and well priced vendors for flowers, cake, venue, catering, photography, music etc, with Heather became one of ease and simplicity. As the demanding bride my many visions for the day were perfectly executed beyond my expectation. From an enormous crystal tree to hanging candles under a tree in Lithia Park and a runner for the diabolically long aisle, my every aspiration for the day was fulfilled. Thank you so much Heather for your creative insight, your awesome ability to multitask and your seamless production of our fantastic wedding!

It was incredibly important to me that I plan a proposal that would be as memorable as the woman I was asking.  Heather created a proposal package that was beyond my wildest expectations. I felt confident knowing that she would take care of every detail.  She did a phenomenal job with organizing, creating, and making sure I was OK! She is extremely professional, creative and helpful. I would recommend Heather and An Inspired Affair with the very highest regard!

The only reason I’ve had any success with ladies was because of Heather and her influence on me. She knows what romance is and how to create it from even the simplest sources like an impromptu picnic or watching a video together on a cold weekend.  Heather is truly a one of a kind woman and anyone who hires her to plan their wedding, anniversary or just a romantic experience will be in for an experience that is one of a kind as well.

I just wanted to say Thank you again for all you help and hard work you put into our wedding. The whole day was just perfect, we couldn’t have asked for a better day with the weather and the ceremony and reception were absolutely beautiful. My mom is still talking about you, she was very impressed with your work. We couldn’t have done it with out you!!

My fiance to be loved the idea of driving down to Ashland from Portland for her birthday weekend. I loved the idea of surprising her with a marriage proposal that same weekend! In order to pull this off, I was lucky enough to find Heather. Heather worked with me on everything. She kept in constant communication via phone and email, and even without ever having met her, she created a magical day for us. She decorated the area with custom flowers, signs, champagne, pillows, the works! We had lovely Marco, the Pedi-Cab driver chauffeur us around all night, we had a great photographer on site for the event, and a fantastic restaurant recommendation; all from working with Heather.

Long distance coordination is always hard, but Heather made it great, and my fiancee has been telling her proposal story to everyone ever since.

Thank you Heather.

I just wanted to state again how spectacular it was to be able to work with someone of your talents. I speak for everyone here at the company when I say that the level of organization and coordination present at Ashley and Paul’s wedding was top notch, and I know you’re the one to thank for that. You made our job truly painless by having everything run so seamlessly, it was a pleasure to be able to be involved with the event.

As a custom designer I have worked with Heather at several weddings and I am always blown away by the commitment she brings to her job. She treats every couple like they are her family and does whatever she can to give them an amazing event. Heather has integrity, creativity and professionalism along with a sweet and friendly personality. She is genuinely excited about giving her clients the event of their dreams and she goes above and beyond to make it happen every time. My husband and I had some crazy ideas for our wedding and she jumped on board with us while still giving us solid advice about logistics, vendors and timelines. Any time I felt overwhelmed or needed someone to bounce an idea around with Heather was there for me. The day of our wedding we just floated around enjoying it while she made sure the whole event was on track and running smoothly – and she did it all wearing an adorable lion tamer costume to fit our carnival theme. It was a huge relief for us to have her there! I can’t imagine hiring anyone else.
