Our Austin Team
Experienced, Leaders, Dedicated, Unique, and Passionate.
“It has been months since our wedding day and I still can’t imagine our day without the help of Sarah from Etc! I think back on our day with nothing but joy and happiness because it went so smoothly. From our first meeting with her it was clear she was experienced, knowledgeable, and very organized. She had wonderful insight that was invaluable to us as we worked with her discussing logistics for the day. My husband and I had no question in our minds leading up to our wedding day that everything would go smoothly because of Sarah’s attention to detail.”
“Alyssa was AMAZING! She took care of all of our concerns from Transportation to corralling family to guaranteeing the day ran smoothly. I’d recommend Etc. Coordinators to everyone!”
“I loved working with Mary Beth! There were so many moments in the days leading up to the wedding where I would think, wait did I forget something. Then I would realize if I did, Mary Beth would have mentioned it. You can’t put a price on that kind of peace of mind. Our wedding was perfect and we could not have done it with out Mary Beth and the whole team!”
“We both want to thank you for everything you did for us before, during and after our wedding day! You made our day absolutely perfect, and I can’t even imagine trying to pull it off without you. Your patience, organization, and hard work really put me at ease (seriously, I never felt stressed about the wedding on the day of — maybe other reasons lol! but never anything related to the wedding running smoothly). Every single one of our guests, who we had the chance to speak with, raved about how smoothly everything went and how well-organized the ceremony and reception was. I honestly can’t thank you enough for helping to make our day so special and so perfect. We honestly can’t think of a single thing that we would have changed.”
“Working with Etc. Coordinators was by far the best decision that we made the entire wedding planning process! From the moment that Elizabeth, our coordinator, reached out to us, she helped to remove any stress that we had and to put us at ease. In our initial meeting, Elizabeth was well organized and had already read through all of our vendor contracts and had an idea of what we were envisioning for our wedding day. Immediately following our meeting she took over communicating with all of our vendors, setting up a day-of timeline, managing the event order at our venue and answering any questions that we had. We sent countless emails back and forth in the weeks leading up to the wedding and she was always enthusiastic, responsive, and kept track of all the changes and details along the way.”
