Because every wedding is different: At EED, you will see that our 25+ years of combined experience in wedding planning sets us apart from the rest. The knowledge we have is only that which can be learned through countless hours of hard work, experiences in wedding situations of all kinds, and creating a personal experience for each of our clients. We will never be an over-grown company with inexperienced planners popping at the seams, but instead remain boutique & client-focused with our three experienced planners: Elle, Jillian & Chelsea and our right hand ladies, Maureen, Chatara and Lauren.  We offer a wide range of packages fit for every client’s needs from Full Planning & Creative Design to Day of Coordination. Please use our contact page for current packages and pricing. 

Our “Pink Pineapple” studio is located on Canton square in downtown Baltimore and all meetings are scheduled by appointment only. Though we are based in Charm City, we travel to amazing cities and countries, from tropical islands to historic villas, the Caribbean to California each year. You will find us most frequently prettying urban, coastal and rural Maryland, historic venues of DC, vineyards of Virginia, and cities of New Orleans & Charleston. Often times we are planning via phone, FaceTime or emails with our couples because they live a distance away or they simply have busy schedules.

“Southernly” Sophisticated?

Of course not, we travel all over! We have planned weddings from Manhattan & Maine, to Seattle & Northern Cali and we love the North!  We have also traveled across oceans to different countries for weddings, editorial shoots, social events and truly love experiencing and designing in exciting new places. Don’t let the “Southern” fool you, it is simply our style and not location. 

Why the Pineapple?

The pineapple is the well-known symbol of “Southern Hospitality.” The South is known for manners & etiquette, handwritten thank you cards and no watches worn after 5pm. Things are graceful and romantic in the South, which is what every wedding should have–regardless of your style!  Picture the sheers blowing in the doors that open to the porch as you nestle in the porch swing. That “comfortable” feeling you imagined just then, did you?…well that is it! 

 

 
Whoever said orange is the new pink was seriously disturbed. -Elle Woods

Do not judge a pink book by it’s cover. We adore pink, surely, it is a classic..it is a staple..and it will always be the icon of femininity. We adore creating events with a little froo-froo, but we also adore designing the daring & chic, too. We have created tents draped in black fabric, modern print mixes, equestrian ballrooms, boho ceremonies and brightly colored ambiances. Take a look at our portfolio if you don’t believe us!
