“I met a bride the other day and she really needs your help. You should call her.” That statement basically sums up how desperate we were to find a planner to help us plan our wedding. We didn’t have the faintest idea as to where to begin. We had a vision: something unique yet traditional, trendy yet timeless, fun-filled yet elegant. However we had no clue as to achieve this vision or really the time to devote to even trying.
Enter Elizabeth Priya Kumar, Wedding Planner Extraordinaire! Within the first two minutes of conversation with Priya, we knew she was the person for the job. She really “got” our vision from the instant we started talking. She told me something that I still haven’t forgotten. “Anyone can hire a bunch of vendors and put them in a room and call it a wedding. That’s not a wedding, that’s just a fancy party. A wedding is a union between two people, two families and it should be more. We need to tell a love story.” Everything that Priya and her Premini Events team take on, operates within that philosophy and it shines through in all of their work.
One of the most amazing things about Priya (and trust me, there are a LOT) is that she took the time to really get to know us and our personalities and subsequently infused them throughout our wedding weekend in the most elegant and distinctive way. This made our wedding not only beautiful and wonderful and all other things positive but OURS. We gave Priya complete creative control, from the tagline, to the theme, to the little intricate details and she did not disappoint. We trusted her completely. For that reason alone, we are thankful every day that she came into our lives.
But there is more. We have been to a lot of weddings and have always noticed how the bride and groom and their families are really stressed and worried about things starting on time, vendors setting up the way they are supposed to, the list goes on. We didn’t have to worry about ANY of that. We honestly didn’t really have to worry about ANYTHING. Priya and her team are the most professional around, and are very adept at taking care of any on-site mishaps that may occur, to the point that we didn’t even know about any of them, even if they had occurred. The best part was that this lack of worry wasn’t isolated to just the day of the wedding. We weren’t stressed out during the entire process! This is all a testament to how amazing Priya is at her job. You can tell its more then just a job to Priya - it's a passion. We had a fairytale wedding, and it’s all thanks to Priya and Premini Events. Trust us, you will not be disappointed. Not only did we get the wedding of our dreams but we have made a wonderful friend in the process.

Priya, I don’t think there is any way I could tell you how grateful I am in my decision to have chosen you as our wedding planner. It takes a lot for a bride (especially one ridiculously over-meticulous in nature as myself) to entrust the single day they have been dreaming of their entire lives onto another person. You were able to resonate with my philosophy and execute my wedding through my lens. My assurance lied deeply in knowing how passionate and strong-headed Priya is in her demeanor and her line of work. She’s never allowed me to feel that I was just one of her several clients or just another busy summer wedding to buckle on. Instead, she did all in her capacity to make sure that I felt like a princess on my wedding day and that nothing came in the way of that and what I wanted. Furthermore, the personal sacrifice that you had always made with time and approachability are investments that you’ve made that I certainly won’t ever forget. It takes a lot to earn my seal of approval – and though I was always certain that you stood out from the other wedding planners in the industry as per extensive research, I can proudly attest that you are absolutely extraordinary in whom you are and what you do. Our entire wedding party also fell in love with Padmini – a team of partners doesn’t get any better than the two of you! Working with you was an amazing experience that I’m incredibly grateful for. I look forward to following your future brides and the remarkable ways you’ll find to narrate their love stories, and to watch how ecstatic they will be, as I once was, to be a Premini bride.

We did not know the importance of the wedding planners. After seeing your involvement and time management, now we understand the importance. Service was exceptional. The team was professional, poised, extremely well organized and very responsive to any concerns or issues we raised with respect to the various vendors. The team's confident attitude and clear competence allowed us to focus on the right priorities - reflecting on the joyful sentiment of the day and celebrating with all of our guests.Please accept our sincere thanks for managing the event very well. You far exceeded our expectations.

Planning a wedding these days can be a very difficult thing, especially if you want to have a wedding that is going to be memorable, different, trendy, smooth, and breath-taking. Part of the reason it can be so difficult is because almost everything has been done already, and planning something out over a span of a couple of months without anything going wrong can be a very daunting if not impossible task. Especially for a couple that has things to do other then simply sit around and plan a wedding, and even if that was all we had to do I bet we still couldn't do it right. Luckily for us we met our saviour: the perfect personality, sense of humor, sense of imagination, down to earth, great friend, motivator, negotiator, and alot more positive adjectives all wrapped up in the most epic wedding planner on the planet: Elizabeth Priya Kumar! From the first day we sat down to meet with Priya we knew that she was going to make our special weekend a success. Within just a few minutes of talking she could grasp what we were looking for and made it happen. We could go on and on about the details, but long story short: our wedding weekend was absolutely perfect. It was above and beyond our wildest expectations and the reason for it was Premini Events. The best part about it, and I mean yeah it was perfect, but on top of that it felt like we weren't even stressed out about it during the process. The timeline Priya had given us never felt overwhelming at any point and from our point of view it was a breeze, just a testament to how well Priya knows her trade. She has a passion for what she does, and has a personality that glows with confidence. You won't be disappointed, and I can assure you that you will not only have a memorable event, but will also get to meet one of the nicest people around!

Priya - Seriously thank you for everything. This was probably the craziest and most scatterbrained group of people you ever had to deal with and you pulled off a gorgeous and amazing event. I got so many compliments on the decor, the food, the ambiance. I can't tell you the number of people that came up to me and said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. It was amazing, amazing, amazing. It was a pleasure working with you for all these months. Without you this would not have been possible. We will definitely continue this friendship. Again, thank you so much.
-Swetha and Punee
What can we say that can possibly express our gratitude?
You managed to create the perfect day for our wonderful and intimate wedding. From the first day we met you, we knew you would be perfect! Your energy, enthusiasm and attention to detail took our intimate event to another level that neither one of us could even imagine possible. From the smallest suggestions and details to the big problems, you made it all so easy and enjoyable.
As you saw, our ceremony and reception were filled with special people that have been with us for a very long time - each of them representing a special part of our journey. You treated them as family and made each and everyone feel special. I thank you for that!
We hope to marry off some of my friends soon and if we have our way, you will be the first person I will call to handle it all! Either way, you are now part of our special friends group and we wish you much much success.

I always thought a wedding planner was a waste of money. As I started the planning process, I decided to meet Priya since I heard through friends that she was the best. But I was still skeptical. By the time I was done meeting her, not only was freaking out about the little details that I didn't think about, but I understood that I needed a professional to take control of my wedding so that I could enjoy it. I think that was one of the best decisions I ever made because she put out so many fires that I didn't even know about. She took control of all the vendors, stationery printing, getting decorators, theme and vision, and being on my ass to meet deadlines! She was able to politely tell people to shut up when they needed to, made detailed timelines and even made sure that my maid of honor wasn't getting too drunk...lol. All in all, she was a true professional and because of her my wedding was a dream wedding. Most importantly - she kept me calm throughout the process and the day of. Since my wedding was chosen to be aired on TLC, she even handled the eleven person TV/camera crew and made sure it went smoothly. I recommend her with all my heart...

We just wanted to take a minute to thank you sincerely for all of your efforts, from day 1 to the end, in helping us with our wedding! My family and I agree that the decision to go with your group was one of the best decisions we made in our planning efforts! We were impressed by your ease, and how unaware Raj and I were of any of the game day decisions, as they were handled seamlessly! We wish the best for you and your company.

We had exactly one month to plan an engagement party, from making the invitee list and choosing the menu to deciding the program. Premini Events was with us throughout the journey, adding their elegance and personalization to the event. They seamlessly incorporated our request to make it an environmentally green event and carried this theme throughout the invitations, centerpieces and party favors! They had an incredible ability to negotiate prices with vendors and figure out where to cut costs and where to spend the extra dollar. Anyone questioning the need for a professional planner, prepare yourself for Premini and get ready for a memorable event.

My daughter was turning 16 and I wanted her to feel like she was the most important girl in the world. Being a single mom, I couldn’t afford the whims and fancies of a party that most two income households could do. With me working two jobs, I really didn’t have the time to dedicate to plan a themed party. Premini Events worked so diligently to help meet my tight budget and even saved me money in areas where I had no connections or resources to get. They are truly a team who just “gets it”. My daughter had the party of a lifetime, and our family is still talking about it even though it was last year. I would recommend anyone needing a party to only use the best, Premini Events.

To be honest I was a little hesitant in hiring an event planner. I am extremely OCD about how things should go and what I want. Priya was extremely helpful in giving us ideas and making sure that I got everything I wanted on the day of my wedding. My wedding day went exactly the way I wanted, and it wouldn't have gone that way without the help of Priya.
- Meghana and NIck
Our wedding was a night to remember. The Premini Events team was so polished and paid attention to every detail that we wanted our guests to experience. We were both overwhelmed when we walked into our reception. We are so pleased with the responsiveness to every question we had along with how they truly made it a personal experience with us. They listened and cared about us and what we needed as opposed to telling us what they thought was best. I look forward to using Premini Events for many more of our family functions. A big thank you and salute to all that you did for us.
