"I can't recommend Erika enough! I was not planning on getting a wedding coordinator, but after many recommendations we decided to hire Erika for day-of coordination - it was hands down, the best money we spent on anything for the entire wedding. Erika is 100% the difference between having a nice event that is somewhat to very stressful, to having the wedding of your dreams and allowing you to fully enjoy the entire day. There were apparently a few things that went wrong that I had no idea about (such as my tent being set up the wrong way before the ceremony), but she fixed everything before I even got wind of it and all I did was soak it all in and enjoy every moment. I honestly could not think of a more perfect wedding and I owe it all to her warmth, eye to detail, professionalism, and overall just being so on top of it. Highly, highly recommend!"

"Erika is AMAZING! Planning our Washington wedding from Texas was slightly stressful, but Erika quickly put us at ease. She makes herself completely accessible to all of her clients with unlimited phone calls/emails, etc. Not to mention, the girl works round the clock- she would even respond to my emails from the top of Mt. Rainer! Erika has excellent style and pays close attention to detail, so I knew on the day of that everything would go off without a hitch. I didn't even see inside the reception venue until I walked in as they announced us- that is how much faith I had! From planning, to set up, to coordinating vendors and even to clean up, Erika took care of everything. Book her now for your wedding- you won't be disappointed!"
-JAMIE & JW, ROCHE HARBOR RESORT
"I highly recommend Erika! She is warm, organized, positive, and detailed. My fiance and photographer friend teamed up with Erika for a surprise proposal on top of a mountain. Erika was wonderful and successfully pulled off a fairy-tale proposal! She put together a beautiful winter-y bouquet (I didn't even know a bouquet could look winter-y), and set up an adorable "picnic" on top of a mountain with a wool blanket, throw pillows, a cake (!!), a vintage wooden tray, candles and champagne/ champagne glasses. Each piece was simple, elegant, and somehow matched being on top of a mountain. Probably the most amazing thing is that Erika hiked a mountain carrying a bouquet of flower in a vase (with water) in one hand, and in the other, ironed ribbons to go around the bouquet. She definitely has an eye for detail. Erika is fun and kind. You'll love working with her!"

"I approached planning my wedding with so much anxiety and so many questions. I had a general idea of how I wanted to feel and look no idea where to start. Erika supported not only every logistical detail of planning and our day but was also the amazing designer behind our colors, table layouts, mood and themes. Erika included me with thoughtful mood/design boards, design meeting, meeting with our florist and tons of calls and text for all the details until day of. I didn’t have to spend any time researching vendors. After understanding my vision for my day, she sent me a customized list for every vendor needed and I was able to pick from their social media and websites- every vendor we had fit so perfectly and were genuinely so fun to be with on our day. We are still in awe of how beautiful and “us” our day was thanks to Erika. We were able to relax and enjoy the day with each other and our loved ones and not stress about any detail. Erika even had our food brought to us and truly took care of us in ways I would have never thought of but were so appreciated and needed that day. Erika is down to earth and makes the task of planning a wedding manageable and approachable while behind the scenes being detail oriented and so creative. Erika- thank you thank you thank you for making the start of our marriage so beautiful and special. (We are still getting an unreal amount of compliments from all our guests.)"

"Awesome!!! On point, organized, fun to work with, personable. Got lots of compliments from wedding guests about how great & smoothly everything went, & about how great our wedding planner was! Superior attention to detail - we had a DIY wedding & all of my decor was set up exactly as I had requested. They even took care of many things that I had not thought of, my wedding turned out even better than I had imagined. We were very, very happy with the excellent customer service & highly recommend you hire this planner :) :)"

"We selected Erika Hernandez as our day of coordinator for our wedding in April 2016 at the Fremont Foundry in Seattle. It was an absolute pleasure working with Erika! She is detailed, organized, informative & great about communication. She is also calm, cool & extremely capable & our family + wedding guests commented on how wonderful she was. Definitely the smartest decision we made for our special day! Erika comes highly recommended & we will reach out to her in the future for vow renewal & as a friend."

"Erika was amazing to work with! We were on the fence about hiring a wedding planner, but after meeting with her and seeing how kind, professional, and creative she is, we decided we had to have her on our team. My wedding was somewhat complicated by the fact that we had difficult family issues, a ton of out-of-town guests, and a lot of differing opinions. Thankfully, Erika was able to work effectively with all of the strong personalities and often was the person who calmed others down, which was incredibly helpful. She was also able to keep a bunch of habitually late people on track and on time, both during the planning process, and during the wedding itself. Her personality (warm, down to earth, super easy-going) made her both a pleasure to work with, and someone who is easy to become friends with. Because of her helpful and resourceful nature, I frequently found myself confiding in her about wedding stresses and issues--unsurprisingly, she often had advice/solutions that helped me resolve the various problems. Practically speaking, having Erika as a wedding planner made the whole process so much easier. She gave us timelines and checklists, and made sure that we were sticking to those. She also helped me find all of my vendors, and checked in regularly to make sure everything was going well. She just made everything run smoothly. This was especially true the closer we got to the wedding--as just one example, several weeks before the wedding, my hair stylist canceled on me, leaving me panicked and frustrated. I mentioned it to Erika, and within 24 hours, she had found me a new hair stylist. If you're stressed or overwhelmed about wedding planning, or even just on the fence about hiring a wedding planner, I strongly recommend that you at least meet with Erika. I have no doubt that you will love working with her as much as we did, and will find yourself keeping in touch even after the wedding just because of how much of a joy she is to be around."

"I interviewed a few wedding planners and Erika and I just "clicked." She's great and really impressed us with her knowledge and professionalism. She knows how to ask the right questions and she helped us think of (and solve) a lot of the planning and day-of aspects that we didn't even know we needed to do. She was also excellent at coordinating all logistics with our vendors (so we didn't have to!) and ensured that the day-of the wedding was stress-free for us and our families. I'd highly recommend EVERYONE work with Erika and The Greatest Adventure! "
-ELISA & RYTER, DELILLE CELLARS
"Erika was such a pleasure to work with! She made our big day go so smoothly, I don't know what I would have done without her. Throughout the planning process she was always there to answer my questions, and was always willing to meet me if I had some kind of planning emergency. Thank you Erika for everything! :)"
