In the beginning I was skeptical about hiring a coordinator. I had the time and the planning abilities to complete everything on my own, so I wasn’t sure that I wanted to add a coordinator into our budget. My husband, fiancé at the time, and I talked about it and decided to start looking into day-of-coordinators so we wouldn’t have to worry about anything the day of the wedding. I researched several coordinators, talked with several on the phone, and even met up with some. I was eventually referred to Elizabeth through another vendor and I knew instantly after our initial phone call she was who I wanted! We booked her immediately after before ever meeting her - best decision we could’ve made! She was always available when I would call or text with questions (which I have a lot of), she was extremely thorough in every aspect of the wedding, she was so personable, and she is extremely passionate about her work! Prior to the wedding we had phone calls and sit down meetings where we would go over each aspect of the wedding, big and small. The week of the wedding we had a meeting with myself, Elizabeth, Katie (the venue manager), and my husband. We went over every detail imaginable so that Elizabeth would be able to set up the ceremony site and reception area the way we wanted. Which she did so flawlessly! There were hiccups throughout the day that Elizabeth handled appropriately and ensured I never knew about. She ensured that my husband and I both had a stress free day! I had so many people tell me after the wedding how flawlessly everything ran and how beautiful everything was. That was all thanks to Elizabeth’s hard work! The people that knew about Elizabeth raved about her and how she handled everything! Hiring Elizabeth was the best decision and I would recommend her to anyone looking for an event coordinator!!

Elizabeth is now family. I cannot say enough about this amazing woman. She had worked with me over the past year to pull together my dream wedding, and you guys she absolutely nailed it. All of the little details were a big deal to me to achieve the look and feel I wanted and she went above and beyond to make sure it was exactly as I had pictured it in my head. Her experience of over 10 years in there wedding industry was to my advantage all of the vendors she pointed me towards to work with we're 100% top notch and blew any of my expectations out of the park. She had a difficult task of helping me navigate a very difficult venue to work with and she made it seem effortless and was willing to do any of the hard lifting to make sure I had the day I had envisioned for me and my fiance. Elizabeth will end up being your best friend and the second mom you never knew you needed by the time you're Wedding comes and goes. we absolutely love her.
If you are thinking of having Elizabeth as your wedding planner/coordinator I highly recommend her. She absolutely went above and beyond for me. I chose the full package, and she really did live up to it. I had no idea where to start. I felt like I called her everyday for 7 months lol she answered every single time and came to the rescue. I never had to worry about what to do next. She is the sweetest person you’ll ever meet, the best attitude and always has plan A,B,C. If the three plans didn’t work out she will literally have another plan thought up. My wedding finally arrived and wow, with all the emotions and feels she served me like a true princess. Little talks to make sure I was okay, made sure I wasn’t upset or worried. Brought my husband and I cocktail drinks the whole night, she made sure we did not go with out any of our needs. I walked over to her close to the end of the night while tearing up because everything came together perfectly and I couldn’t have done it without her. It was truly a dream wedding especially with her special touch. She made sure the timeline happened at the exact scheduled times. I honestly can’t fathom how phenomenal she is. PICK HER. She will execute your vision beyond measures. And she will only do as YOU request (she is working for YOU and only you). I faced some confrontations with vendors and such. Elizabeth handled it for me with 5 star professionalism. I couldn’t have had a better planner. I love her. Again PICK her.
I cannot say enough good things about Elizabeth and EM Events. I got engaged and had to plan long distance from Connecticut for 6 months before I even got to Texas, and Elizabeth did all the ground work for me while I wasn't here. My budget was not huge, but she found possibility where I thought there was no way to make my vision a reality, and exhausted every avenue in order to bring my dreams for my wedding day to life. She is tireless in her efforts, and her joy is contagious. Not only is she a true professional in her field, but her capacity to love people is evident. Working with Elizabeth is different than working with anyone else, because she genuinely cares about you, and will take the time to be there to support you through whatever crisis or other circumstances may arise. I knew I needed someone to help me plan my wedding, and Elizabeth Mize was exactly the person I needed. My day was the stuff dreams are made of, and I absolutely could not have done it without her.
I was a "special case"...I happened to be an unexpected pregnant bride. I hired Elizabeth as my coordinator with NO REGRETS. I felt so at ease. Elizabeth Mize put everything together. She knew my goals and gave me MORE than what I wanted or even expected. My DJ fell through last minute and without me even knowing I had a new DJ. (Of course she contacted my husband to inform him.) My wedding was unbelievable and everything I had ever dreamed of. Our last minute DJ did not talk on the mic so Elizabeth went out of her way and stepped in and coordinated, making sure everyone knew where they were suppose to be and she was simply amazing. Elizabeth is worth more than what she charges. She also work with you. I will definitely be sure to find Elizabeth for any events my family or I may have! You cant go wrong with her!

Elizabeth is the absolute best! The first time we met I knew we chose the right person to coordinate our wedding! Elizabeth thinks about every detail so you don't have to worry about a single thing. Very quickly she felt like family which made our wedding day even more special. I did not have to worry about a single thing on the wedding day because Elizabeth had already taken care of everything. Our wedding was perfect and there was no way we could have done it without Elizabeth! I highly recommend her for anyone planning an event or wedding!

I wholeheartedly recommend Elizabeth. She took such an important event in my daughter's life and made the entire process simple and easy. We had 350 guests for an outdoor wedding and indoor reception. We started working with Elizabeth 6 months prior to the wedding and she gave us task lists, vendor recommendations, and love and support. She was there every step of the way. I could not have done it without her.

Elizabeth was my coordinator last year for my wedding. She brought our vision to life, which was no easy task, considering I live out of state. She worked closely with my sister in my place. Everyone loved the wedding. It was so much fun, and I have memories to last a lifetime!
Elizabeth Mize, our wedding coordinator, was outstanding, spending the last year and a half attending to every detail, whim and desire that my sister and I had. She was patient, informative and busted her bottom trying to make sure we got the best price on everything. By the time the wedding date actually rolled around, she had gotten to know me so well that she even made some "executive" decisions on her own...and she was spot on. We hosted the reception at The Sanctuary...a gorgeous Mediterranean inspired venue, which was perfect since we wanted to pay tribute to our Spanish heritage. At the cocktail reception, Elizabeth, knowing that we had lots of little kids in attendance, set up a kid's table full of coloring books and crayons so that they would have something to keep them entertained while their parents socialized a bit. She took the time to send me updates on the progress of everything from the linens, the flowers, etc. The pictures and updates however, did not do justice to what Elizabeth and her crew of vendors put together for my sister's wedding reception. It was rich, elegant and the guests could not say enough about all the details and beauty of everything. The most important person was the bride and with her comment, she said it all...."It is everything I ever wanted!" Job well done to The Sanctuary at Water Oak on Lake Conroe and Elizabeth Mize. I wish I had another wedding to coordinate with you!
