WE CAN DO IT ALL… including making our clients very happy with our services! As you can see from the following comments, our clients love us!!! And for good reason. We are professionals who want to take care of every detail of your event whether it be a company board meeting or your daughter’s wedding or your boss’s retirement black tie affair.

Sheryl at Essential Details is wonderful to work with. Their products are very good quality and reasonable priced. They don't supply tents so we had to rent that from another rental company. That made me realize how special Essential Details is. The tent company wouldn't give us a floor plan. The tent was scheduled to be set up two days before the wedding and still no floor plan. When I told Sheryl, she and her staff worked at the last minute to help us out. They came up with a great floor plan. It wasn't their responsibility to do it but they care enough about their customers to step up and avoid any stress or issues. I can't say enough good things about Essential Details. They are wonderful.


Devanny Kuhn is a remarkable planner. My daughter’s wedding reception was all we dreamed it would be. Devanny’s calm demeanor and attention to detail are extraordinary.  The decorations for the venue were stunning and the flowers were exceptional.  All of Devanny’s planning, designing, and recommendations came together for a splendid event. 

I will highly recommend Devanny for any event planning needs.

I'd like to extend our sincerest thanks to all of you for making our wedding so wonderful. All of our vendors did a fantastic job and we received dozens of compliments from our guests on everything, food, music, hotel, venue...the works. Several attendees said it was the best wedding they had ever been to! 

Yours truly,

Colin & Lauren Patrick

…Thank you for assembling the best wedding I could have possibly imagined.  Your organization, dedication, and vision made my dream very much a reality…

Taylor Canning

I want to express my sincere appreciation for your contribution to the 2011 Wordfest Event.  Brenda told me what a huge help you were with making the sponsor’s hospitality suite very inviting for everyone. Even though the temperatures were staying close to 100 degrees, families did not let that stop them from enjoying foods from around the world, great entertainment and wonderful shopping opportunities. We look forward to continuing to work with you on this event and other projects throughout the year.

Greg Fischer
Mayor of Louisville

I want to express my sincere gratitude for the absolutely beautiful flower arrangements. Everything was perfect, including the type of ribbon used in the bows. My mother loved flowers and I wanted everything to be beautiful for her and it was. My Mom would have said, “They were the prettiest flowers she has ever seen.”
The roses will not go to waste since we are using them to make jewelry with the petals.

Renea Simon and Family

It was so nice working with you. I was very impressed with how you handled the many curve balls that kept coming at you! This morning I received a surprise phone call on my personal cell from the Governor telling me how much he enjoyed the event [Secretariat screening] and thanking me for all of our hard work. He was very pleased as was everyone else. You did an outstanding job!

Cindy Lanham, Kentucky Finance Secretary’s Office

Thank you guys, too, for a super fun night [Secretariat screening]. Even though the weather was cold and windy, the whole evening was warm with a tremendous, positive vibe. You, and the dynamic duo of Cindy and Sheryl, were great fun to work with. We are proud that our very special movie got such a wonderful launch!

Lylle Breier, Disney

We are so pleased that the Molnar/Nordman wedding was a success for your team, as well as The Gillespie. It was such a pleasure working with you. Many thanks to yourself, Libby, and the entire Essential Details team for making this transitional period easier on all of us. You and your team certainly deserve the recognition for putting everything together so beautifully and for putting forth the extra effort and time to help us here at The Gillespie with some of the last minute changes in the floor plan, etc. We hope that your clients were pleased and we hope to work with you and your team in the near future. We will absolutely add Essential Details to our preferred list after working with you!

Thanks Again,
Kimberly, Jennefer, and Bryan
The Gillespie

YOU GIRLS ROCK! Thanks again SO much for making me look like a superstar! I can’t wait to hire you again.

Shannon Burch (on Facebook)

You did such a great job and made my life so much easier. I was a little nervous letting someone else take care of the music and the decorations, as I usually do everything myself (kind of a control freak). I was so pleased with the outcome and I will definitely use you again.

Dineene Bradley, Vice President of Tourism Development
Greater Louisville Convention & Visitors Bureau

THANK YOU so much for all of your hard work last week. I never get enough time onsite to talk to you and tell you how much you’re appreciated. ALL of our dinners have been phenomenal, but everyone went crazy over Pegasus this year. I’ve never heard so many compliments about one dinner. They LOVED it!

Ilse Dehner
United States Equestrian Federation

Thank you so much for all your help and support this week. You are a superstar! We couldn’t have done without you!

Julia Fischer-Wasels, Assistant Director
Ryder Cup Europe

Now that we have returned to London, I just wanted to write to thank you and your staff for all your help with the Tuesday and Wednesday night functions that we did during Ryder Cup week.

It was a pleasure to work with you and there is no doubt that your expertise helped to add value to both nights. Thank you and best regards.

James Finnegan
Ryder Cup Europe

My expectations, and those of my client, are very high indeed. I’ve worked with DMC’s all over the world.  And you are one of the most thorough, professional and hard-working of them all! You have excellent relationships with your suppliers (transportation companies, convention center staff, etc) and that was very apparent to us during our program, and is something I consider to be of paramount importance in a DMC. There is no doubt that if I am doing a program again in the Louisville area, we will be working with you and Essential Details. I recommend you to one and all!!

Helen V. Sullivan

Thank you again to Essential Details for your contributions to Habitat’s 300th House Party. The evening was a tremendous success and the décor was simply perfect for the occasion. We have received countless compliments about the event.

Susan Lawler, Volunteer Coordinator
Habitat for Humanity of Metro Louisville

Finally, I would like to thank you for your immaculate preparations and support for the event. The location was superb and your account management was second to none. Give my thanks to the whole team that was involved.

Marc Campman, Marketing Director
Aristocrat Technologies Europe Limited

We wanted to express our sincere gratitude for Essential Details services at our wedding. Our wedding would not have ran smoothly without you. Your poise, direction, and kindness were fantastic and we are so glad that you were a part of our day. Thank you for fixing the detail boo boos and thank you for dealing with matters outside of your scope!

Essential Details was proud to design and manage the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition wrap-up party in Louisville November 2007.

I wanted you to know how happy I am with the way you handled the party. Everyone from the designers to our sub-contractors, thought it was an awesome party and the perfect conclusion to a perfect week. Thanks for working with me and making it so easy. Please feel free to use me as a reference with any future clients.

I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful tours you developed and hosted for the Colt Collectors’ Association’s (CCA) annual show in Louisville, Kentucky in October 2006… Your expertise in planning the tours and your tour guides’ friendliness and first-hand knowledge of the places the members visited made the tours a successful travel adventure…. I appreciate the care and attention given to our members, as well as the professional handling of the details…. Everything was perfect, and you made it all possible with your planning and a great deal of work. I would definitely use Essential Details again, and I will recommend your company to groups coming to Louisville.

Barbara Hinesley, Ladies Program Coordinator
Colt Collectors’ Association

I readily agreed to provide a letter of recommendation because of the following reasons: *As the months unfolded, the fact that we made a wise choice became quickly evident. Audrey and her team became our ‘go to’ whenever we had a question or an issue and they were always quick to respond in a professional and accurate manner. Without her assistance, we would’ve spent innumerable hours chasing details that are in fact the essential details that they handle with alacrity and deftness (perhaps this is how they came to call their company Essential Details). *Of note also may be their efforts to provide the best service available while keeping costs under control.
