With multiple years of experience as a florist and event planner, Trish is honestly the complete package when it comes to wedding coordinators.  She is incredibly organized, creative, talented, and super sweet.  In fact, Trish is the sole reason why my husband and I got married on June 28 - it was the only day she was available that summer!  As soon as we had our first consultation with Trish, we knew that she was the wedding coordinator for us.  In the year leading up to our wedding, Trish was constantly in touch with me, giving me updates and follow ups on menus, caterers, seating, scheduling, reception decor, etc. and she was always available to answer my questions.  She even coordinated my bridal portraits!  From flowers to linens to photographers to djs and more, Trish offers the best services in the wedding industry - and the fact that she is one of the nicest women you'll ever meet is just a bonus!

We had the pleasure of planning our daughter’s November 2015 wedding with Trish. Every detail effortlessly came together for a beautiful wedding due to Trish’s perfectly natural and professional approach to event planning. In the early planning stages, Trish listened carefully to our daughter’s wants and feelings about her wedding. She worked with the guidelines, presenting us with multiple ideas that we had not thought about ourselves. Every request was handled with an ease and smile, nothing was too much for her. As the mother of the bride and living in Northern Virginia, this was one of the easiest events to plan due to Trish and her professional approach to all the details. She reached out during the planning process just to check in and always returned my calls as quickly as she could. Trish has a wide range of experience in planning events. Hopefully, we can use her in the future for events in the Richmond area.

From the very start, Trish was the consummate professional, but also warm, personable, and down-to-earth.  She understood our budget and respected it, and provided so many creative suggestions to help us get the most bang for our buck.  Trish was always prompt to return emails and phone calls.  Even when I had questions about the most minute details (and there were lots of them!), Trish was patient and thorough with her responses.  She calmly and discretely handled last-minute hiccups so that we could be worry-free on our wedding day.  Our reception was absolutely stunning thanks to her eye for detail.  Three years later, our friends and family still rave about the wonderful time they had at our reception, and I know that much of that is in part to Trish’s coordination.  Trish has a heart of gold and she truly cares about her couples and their families.  I cannot recommend her enough!

The most anticipated day of my life was such a dream come true because of the capabilities of my wedding planner, Trish Brinkley. From our first meeting to plan each detail until midnight of my wedding, I felt confident in Trish attending to the various aspects of the day. Trish was an absolute pleasure to work with due to her calm composure and professional demeanor. Any bride and groom would be blessed to have Trish work with them for their special occasion.

From the moment I met Trish Brinkley, I knew she was the one who would ensure our special day would be the wedding of our dreams. She was on top of every detail and even when the inevitable wedding mishaps occurred that were out of our control, Trish repeatedly went above and beyond the call of duty to save the day. Trish was completely devoted to our wedding and made me feel like our day was as important to her as it was to us. It's been 9 years since my husband and I first met her and she still remembers our anniversary each year. Trish is not only a lovely, thoughtful, and caring person but a phenomenal and professional wedding planner. We are so grateful for all she did for us! I would recommend her without reservation for all event planning needs.

Trish made my dreams come true with an amazing wedding and a stress-free day. My husband and I both have busy, demanding work schedules and while we were so excited to planning a wedding there seemed to be SO MUCH to do and stress about. Trish was diligent about keeping us on track with contracts, budget, and timelines. I so appreciated her sweet, calm, and professional demeanor. Trish literally made the entire wedding/reception planning process completely stress-free. Not only did she keep us organized by helping us determine what to do when, how much we should spend on different options, and on-track by helping us determine what our to-dos were each month leading up to our wedding. On top of being super organized and absolutely fantastic at her job, Trish is the sweetest person on the planet. Our wedding turned out to be more than we ever could've dreamed!

With Trish's expert guidance we were able to have a wonderful wedding reception. Details were thought out well ahead of time so that once the week of the wedding arrived, we did not have to worry about anything. Not only were the practical matters handled professionally, but from start to finish, working with Trish was a pure joy. Her unflappable, calm demeanor, and warmth made our experience a complete pleasure. I am not a party planner at heart, but with Trish guiding us we had a wonderful time and ended up with a reception that turned out exactly as we hoped. I can't recommend her highly enough!

Trish was my secret weapon when it came to my wedding, and I could not have done it without her. She genuinely wanted everything, from the planning to the big day, to be perfect. She went to great lengths to make my vision come to life. From negotiating with vendors on my behalf and not taking no for an answer to proactively sharing ideas, Trish is a rare breed; she exudes a quiet confidence but is also incredibly persuasive and personable. She is so attentive that I felt like her only bride, and she quickly became a good, trusted friend to my family and me. I recommend her to anyone who needs a detail-oriented, calming force behind the scenes working the magic to make for a magical, memorable day.

Hiring Trish Brinkley as my wedding planner was the absolute best thing I did for my wedding. From the moment I met Trish, I knew that she was going to be a calming part of my wedding planning. Her gentle, sweet demeanor made me feel comfortable from the moment I met her, and her years of experience ensured that everything was done correctly. I can honestly say that nothing went wrong on Trish’s watch. My wedding was simply flawless, and it was all thanks to Trish. For every question I frantically emailed Trish at all hours of the night (and believe me there were a lot!), she had a timely, rational answer to calm my nerves. Not only did I have the pleasure of working with Trish, but she became a lovely friend along the way. I would recommend hiring Trish to any of my friends planning a wedding. She is the best!

I met Trish in March of 2012 when I was planning my wedding. I instantly fell in love with her calm and patient demeanor (and the British accent of course). She was incredibly knowledgeable and offered suggestions that were suitable to our tastes. Normally planning for a wedding would be incredibly stressful and time consuming for the bride-to-be, but Trish made the entire process smooth and painless, so much so that all I had to do was sit back and enjoy my special day. I cannot say enough positive things about Trish--I had one of the single best experiences of my entire life thanks to Trish's hard work and dedication to her customers.

It has almost eight years since our wedding day and my wife, and I fondly remember Trish as an important part of making our most special day even more special. Trish's knowledge and attention to detail are second to none. She ensured that we wanted for nothing through the entire process. We are indebted to her for the wonderful memories she helped to craft for us. Trish is an amazing and sweet person who will work hard to make your wedding the one you've always dreamed of.
