Emily launched The Best Day Details in 2019. She earned a degree in Business and Communications and has over 5 years of event experience.

Emily lives in Hudsonville, MI with her husband Josh, son Cohen, and bernedoodle Porter. Emily grew up in upstate New York in the Adirondack mountains and cannot get enough of hiking the high peaks.  If you ever go out to coffee with Emily, you will find she never actually orders coffee. Matcha lattes all the way! She is highly involved in her awesome church and loves serving on the music team. She always has her earbuds in listening to the latest business podcast.

To Emily, there is nothing more thrilling than showing up on your wedding day and running around like crazy for 16 hours straight. It sounds insane, but Emily loves the adrenaline rush that is your wedding and nothing is more rewarding to her than knowing she did her job well so you don't have to worry about a thing!

Emily DeRitter:

Owner & Wedding Coordinator
Based in Grand Rapids, Michigan

A lot of people don’t even realize they need a coordinator for their wedding, but let me tell you- YOU DO, and the BEST BEST BEST BEST people to work with is The Best Day Details. Emily was phenomenal, knowledgeable, and professional! She’s truly amazing and made my day go PERFECTLY! Everything was so gorgeous and exactly how I envisioned it. Emily knows all things weddings and helps answer all questions along the way. She truly goes above and beyond to make her client’s day go smoothly. I am so thankful to have found her and so thankful for her dedication to my day. I HIGHLY recommend using The Best Day Details! I am CERTAIN that your big day will go amazing with this crew alongside you for the journey. - STEPHANIE 9.4.20

I am SO HAPPY I hired Emily with the best day details. At first we didn't plan to have a coordinator, but when we had to reschedule our wedding we decide to hire Emily and it was by far the best decision we made! She was so organized, and helped me realize things I didn't think of for the wedding. She knew I had a specific vision for my day and she made my vision come to life! One of the biggest reasons I wanted a day of coordinator was so that I had help with set up/tear down and didn't have to have my mom do all of that. I wanted my mom to be able to enjoy the day with me and not have to worry about all those details. At our reception we had an unexpected down pour (my wedding was all outside with no tent) and Emily quickly came up with a game plan for all of our guests. She cleared out the underneath of a shed awning and under the porch so we could all go there and still enjoy our wedding and dance the night away! She also cleared off all of the tables and packed all of our stuff away quickly for us so it didn't get ruined by the rain. I did not have to worry about a single thing on the day of! She took care of any issue that came up! I seriously do not know what I would have done with out her. I cannot thank you enough Emily for everything that you did for us!

If you are looking for a day of coordinator... look no further! Emily and her team are simply THE BEST!!! I cannot recommend them highly enough. She had multiple meetings with us leading up to wedding to make sure we had every detail covered. Before meetings we would often feel stressed and behind about wedding planning and after we would meet with Emily we always left feeling SO relieved. Emily is very detail oriented and on-top of things! She handled so many small details, coordinated and communicated with all our vendors, handled last minute changes, and even smoothly handled a day-of catering issue. More than anything our friends and family so appreciated having Emily and her team there so that on our wedding day we could all relax and enjoy and have to stress, set up, clean up, or handle everything in between. Go hire the Best Day Details!!!

Emily is amazing. We got married out of state so having someone that could coordinate all the details, run walk through and set up the day of our wedding was key. I literally was not stressed at all on our big day because Emily had it all under control. She was so helpful during the planning process when I had a bunch of questions and always good at getting back to me. I can’t sing this girls praises enough. She made our day just perfect and stress free. Thank you Emily for everything! - Keagan 10/16/21

Emily was a dream to work with for both planning my wedding and on the big day. It’s something special when someone can give you a great sense of comfort in knowing everything is going to work out perfectly. I can’t say enough good things about The Best Day Details! Emily is a true professional, she was always many steps ahead of whatever was thrown our way, there to answer any questions and calm any nerves (mostly mine). I didn’t have to worry about anything on my wedding day and I was able to turn all my focus to my husband and loved ones. Making the decision to work with a day-of coordinator was 100% worth it, and I would recommend Emily and her team to anyone! - Rochelle 12/3/21
