"Both my husband and I agree: Hily was a lifesaver. When I first began wondering if we needed a wedding planner, both my husband and mom said that they thought we could handle the details of our small wedding on our own. The truth was, we were completely clueless, and I was clinging to my "The Knot" timeline for dear life. I took a chance after a coworker told me that I could either facilitate my wedding, or take part in it, and hiring Hily was hands down, THE BEST money we spent on our wedding . As a type A-person, I really need to witness a certain level of expertise to fully let go of the reins. In the weeks leading up to our wedding, both Fred and I were super stressed with wrapping things up at work and having family come to town, but never once did I bat an eye about the wedding itself. Hily was on top of it from day one, calling me to talk through stressful situations and steering me away from some major DIY nightmares. She helped me through what could have been some terrible last-minute fiascos, and her support actually helped us SAVE a ton of money: when our first caterer flaked out, she made numerous calls and helped us open communication with one that ended up being both great and a lot cheaper than our original choice. HTNO Events also did our flowers, and after I sent Hily multiple, contradictory links of my "wedding inspirations," she was somehow able to get all the chaos out of my head and into real life. The result was the absolute wedding of my dreams. I could not have asked for anything more beautiful or for more friendly, professional, and organized coordinators. On the day of, all I had to focus on was meeting my husband down the aisle. I would absolutely recommend HTNO Events!

we had an amazing time with talented friends designing and styling this intimate wedding shoot at the Catahoula Hotel in New Orleans.
"throughout the planning process, Hily listened and truly understood what we were looking for. Our wedding could not have been more "us." from thinking of the smallest (yet very important) details, to making sure I didn't have to worry about a thing on the wedding day, Hily was calm, classy and oh-so organized. she also has a stunning aesthetic and fantastic connections. i would absolutely recommend Hily to plan your wedding, event...or whatever you're looking for!"

"Hily planned my wedding in October. She was available for every step of the way, from food and beverage selection and budgeting, setting up floral appointments, decor, coordination of rehearsal and dinner... pretty much everything she worked with me hand in hand. The best part about working with Hily is her attention to the small things, the little details. I knew my day was going to be perfect because she had ALL of my requests written and organized and ready to go for the day of. It was sooooo nice to be able to completely focus on getting ready the day of and not have to worry about the venue or decorations or anything like that. Hily did a wonderful job on our wedding and I can't recommend her enough!"
"Hily was the wedding planner for my son's wedding in NOLA. Not only was she efficient, detailed, organized, and creative, she was cool, calm, and delightful to be around. The wedding was so special and beautiful. The video was truly amazing professionally edited and capturing the true flavor of New Orleans."
