Tia at Erin McClean is the person you want as your day of coordinator. She was absolutely wonderful and has the entire process down to an art. Her calm demeanor was just what we all needed that day. We had two or three meetings prior to the wedding and Tia got down to details on everything needed for the wedding day. Tia was very familiar with our venue, the Cotton Room in Durham, NC and also contacted other vendors to ensure the success of the wedding ceremony and reception. She was where she needed to be when she needed to be there. We will be forever thankful for having Tia and Erin McClean to complete our wedding day. I can honestly say that nothing went wrong and if it did, I never knew about it. Paint me a very satisfied customer.
We were thrilled to have Erin's guidance and professionalism. At each step, she helped us make decisions and kept us on track. The day of the wedding it was terrific to have her there for any last minute issues. I highly recommend her!
Tia was wonderful! She was organized, prepared for the unexpected and kept everyone on schedule. Tia even had answers to questions we did not know to ask. We had a beautiful wedding day for our daughter and Tia made so much of it happen. Thanks!
If you are looking for a wedding planner look no further than Erin McLean and her team! Tia was my planner and she was an absolute life saver. She helped my whole family take a deep breath and relax because we knew we were is good hands. Their whole team was so professional, the whole process was so easy. I never had to worry. They are worth every penny!!
We LOVE Erin! We hired her as our weekend wedding coordinator and She was the best! She was so involved- came to our linen appointment to help us pick out all of our colors, met with us and our caterer, and was a lifesaver on the actual wedding day. We don't know what we would have done without her! We 100% recommend her!
So, I have been thinking about what is was that I wanted to say about Erin since I had my wedding back in October of 2012. I cannot really put in words the things that she helped me with. Erin is WONDERFUL, AND AMAZING!!! She did a SPLENDIFEROUS JOB to help me plan my wedding. Erin is a very funny, responsabile, professional person. I gave her a vision when my husband and I first met her and she brought it to life for me. I worked with her for about a year and a half and she became my friend during that time. I have already given her number to a couple of my friends that are getting married in the next year. I told them that they are crazy not give her a call. I got married in Ashvillie NC at Castlelady Hawke and it was truly a fairy tale wedding because of Erin. There was not one thing that I had to worry about during that time. I wanted for nothing that day. It was perfect. She kept me in line with my budget lol because I would always come to her and say "Uuumm also to the budget we need to add" I am kind of sad that she is no longer planning my wedding because I had gotten used to going to me weekly meeting with her. Erin Thank you so much, I could not have done it without you.

Thank you Bernie!! I loved working with you! I miss our meetings too!!
Erin McLean and Tia are the best! They are organized, professional and so very kind. I would HIGHLY recommend their services.
Erin came on board to help us plan Emilia and Jon's wedding in august. She did an outstanding job in every way possible. She was very professional, attentive to every minute detail, super kind, kept the evening going and was there for anything we needed. I can't say enough good things about her and would reccommend her to anyone needing this kind of service.She calmed my nerves when I was stressing at the last minute , with her peaceful and focused demeanor! A true pro!
Thank you Erin and Cotton Room for such a memorable time. I did find my purse in the morning in one of my neices bags!! sorry for the panic at the end of the night.
Good luck in your future event planning!
mother of the bride!
Erin was beyond the perfect day of coordinator!
Erin was amazing! She took my very vague vision and created a more beautiful wedding than I ever could have imagined. She helped me with every design decision and gave me great recommendations for my vendor choices. Erin even took care of translating my likes and dislikes to the various vendors. I felt so relaxed the whole wedding weekend thanks to knowing that Erin was taking care of all the last minute details and would be there to handle anything that might happen on the wedding day. Erin was so good at talking me through the whole process as well. She was so positive and encouraging about everything and she was always able to let me know that the planning was on track- which decreased my stress level immensely. I very highly recommend Erin to anyone looking for a wedding planner- I cannot say enough about how wonderful she was to work with!
What can I say about Erin McLean? She is totally amazing! I was planning my wedding from NYC and was so overwhelmed with all that I had to do and with all of the options. Erin got to know me and my fiance and planned a wedding that was so exceptional and beyond anything we ever dreamed. Erin's fun personality, organization, design talent, and skill was invaluable. My now husband thinks she is the best decision we made. I love her. I really do!!! Call Erin and her team today!
I used Valerie of Erin McLean Events as wedding coordinator for my wedding weekend. Valerie was sweet, easy to work with and efficient. The entire wedding party felt very comfortable working with Valerie. She handled expected and unexpected tasks with professionalism. She was responsive to email and very patient with our indecisions and changes always offering encouragement that all was fine! I would highly recommend using Valerie and Erin McLean Events!
I can not even begin to say how much I enjoyed working with Erin!!! She is professional, reliable, and AMAZING at what she does. The last thing a bride wants is an uptight high strung wedding planner and that is NOT what you get with Erin. She makes it a point to keep things running smoothly!! And if something goes wrong during the planning process or day of you will not know about it because Erin will be right there fixing anything that could possibly cause her bride stress. I would highly recommend Erin and Erin McLean Events for anyone who is looking for an AMAZINGLY AWESOME planner!!!!
Erin and her team helped my new wife and I plan our November wedding. We could not have been happier! She is so good at what she does. She was able to get our style and create a wedding that was gorgeous and elegant. We were planning remotely, and Erin kept us on track, recommended great vendors, and designed a stunning receptions. Guests kept telling us all night how great everything was. Erin is the best of the best. We would recommend her to anyone!
From my very first phone call to her, Erin was enthusiastic, responsive and excited to help us with a very special wedding planning project. She intuitively understood what the bride wanted and even more, knew just the local vendors to make the bride's vision become a reality. Erin's kind nature, her sweet, fun personality, and her organized demeanor made her such a gem to work with. There was never a situation that she couldn't handle and her depth of experience was such a blessing! She was able to juggle lots of moving parts effortlessly. She has well-established relationships with numerous local wedding professionals and was able to solve a last-minute band issue (or, rather, a lack of a band) for us quickly and within budget. Not only would we work with her again, but we highly recommend that YOU work with her. With Erin taking care of your details, you can rest easy, knowing she will make your wedding or event remarkable, unforgettable, and beautiful.

Being in the industry myself, I knew I didn't want to deal with all the day of stuff. Erin was the planner I headed straight too once I had a date and place booked. She made everything so easy. Her assistant Lacey ran the rehearsal and handled my somewhat crazy (and not the easiest to work with) family. The day of, Erin made everything so easy. Anything that we needed (or during the guys freaking out because they didn't read the time-line) she took care of it. No matter what I needed it or when I needed it before or during the wedding, I knew I could count on Erin. She is amazing at what she does, will put your mind at ease, and make your day the most memorable day of your life!
The superlatives for Erin Mclean are too numerous to mention in one posting. She provided excellent, dare I say flawless wedding planning services for my future wife and I. We were not only impressed with Erin's professionalism and attention to detail, but were blown away with how 'user-friendly' she is to work with.
Upon meeting Erin we were immediately impressed with her inviting personality and enthusiasm for our wedding. She has definitely found her calling. During our 'courtship' process with Erin we were pleased to find how eager she was to both keep us updated on the planning and to meet with us whenever needed. She definitely kept my future bride's mind at ease!
The day of the wedding went better than we could have imagined. Erin has the gift of being both very organized and having a pleasant demeanor in pressure situations. She made everything flow so very smoothly, not to mention making it the most exiting and happy day of our lives. We both highly suggest that you use Erin Mclean for your wedding planning services. We just wish we could work with her again!
Erin was such a pleasure to work with. She helped me plan and budget my wedding and because of her my wedding day was completely stress free!
Erin McLean is not just someone you work with to plan your wedding; she also becomes your friend.
Erinâ€™s level of professionalism is by far what you remember most about her but itâ€™s because of her style, poise, personality, and demeanor that makes working with her a dream to any bride to be.
Erin took all the infamous â€śstressâ€ť that all brides are afraid they will experience the day of their wedding away from not only me, the bride, buy my mom as well. Planning a wedding is a stressful job for any bride, but working with Erin makes it a breeze and all of that â€śstressâ€ť is obsolete.
The day of my wedding I was never once contacted by any of my vendors because Erin ensures that your DAY is all about you and she handles all of the details. And by details, I mean everything. I walked into my wedding venue with the biggest smile on my face. Not only because I had a pretty cute husband on my arm but because of the amazing job Erin did with ensuring all of my thoughts and ideas that I had in a notebook came to life.
I could not have imagined my wedding day without Erin being a part of it. It was the best day of my life and I owe a lot of that to Erin! She made sure Will and I were able to sit down and enjoy our food (weddingâ€™s make you hungry), I danced with my father for our song, the champagne was given to Will and I before the toasts, and that I was ok. There were so many other details I could list to let you know what an amazing experience it is to work with Erin, but just know, that when you hire Erin and her team for your wedding day, it will truly be the best day of your life and your guests will walk away saying, â€śGosh, what a great wedding!â€ť And when they do say that, you will nod your head and know that the secret to that perfect day was Erin McLean events.
two people could not be better at what they do than Erin McLean and Lacey Hardee, Erin's assistant. Erin was not available for my wedding on October 16th, though she met with us initially and went through everything with us with lots of kindness and detail. Lacey was with us for the rehearsal and the big day and she did an absolutely. amazing. job. Aside from treating me, my groom and everyone involved in the wedding like a friend she'd known all her life, she ran the rehearsal quickly and efficiently and oversaw everything on our wedding day. It ran so smoothly it was ridiculous. Lacey watched me like a hawk, and was right there with me. In the split second that I'd realize I needed her for something, I'd look around and she'd already be standing right there with a smile on her face! We were calling Lacey at 2 in the morning asking her where the key to our b&b room was (because she had graciously dropped all of our stuff off beforehand!!) and she answered the phone cheerily and as if it were no big deal at all!
Look no further than Erin McLean events for your big day. They are just so great at what they do!!
