  • Do you receive "kick-backs" from wedding professionals? No, we don't receive any kick-backs or benefits from recommending certain vendors. All of the vendors we work with and recommend, we do so because we trust them to make your wedding day amazing. If vendors provide any discounts, we pass those on to our clients.

  • Do you take credit cards? We do take credit cards however there will be a 2% fee for credit card payments. Payments through checks & ACH have no additional fees.

  • Do you charge for the initial consultation? No, your initial consultation is complimentary. Book yours here!

  • Why is it important that I hire a Certified planner? Anyone can start a wedding planning company and claim to have all of the knowledge to execute a successful event. We believe it is important for you to hire someone who you know you can trust, who not only has extensive experience but also education about all of the ins and outs of the industry and everything that is required to ensure you have a beautiful wedding. Someone who cares about investing in their career enough to get certified, is guaranteed to care about you and your wedding.

Erika O'Brien Events - The Knot Best of Weddings 2023


New York wedding planner, luxury wedding planner

"I thought I was organized and on top of things, but then I had Erika coordinate my wedding! I got married in New York City in June 2023 and opted to plan the big parts (venues, menu, specialty things my fiancé and I wanted like musicians and our getaway car), but I couldn't have pulled it off without Erika. She was there to remind me of the little things that often get overlooked like syncing up with vendors prior and during the wedding day, setting up the tables at the reception, and acting as emcee at said reception. She made sure no rock was unturned in terms of anything we may have wanted. All in all, my wedding - which was a "destination" wedding for around 90% of guests and brings its own unique set of worries - was a smooth sailing success thanks to Erika's coordination and communication skills. She was ultra clear in emails and calls and was thoroughly wonderful to work with start to finish. PS: Her husband, Hunter, took photos for our reception and did a beautiful job! He knew exactly how to pose us to capture those glowy, in-the-moment shots and shared in our excitement all throughout. I would totally recommend them as a package dynamic duo if you're also looking for a great photographer."
