What a blessing it was to work with a professional like Deborah Bowman as our wedding coordinator. She loves what she does so much and it is truly reflected in her work ethic. Deborah’s personality is much like our mothers; kind, patient and precise. It was very important for us to have a planner that we simply gelled with!
We would like to sincerely thank you for everything you did to make our wedding the best day of our lives! You were professional, but very personable when dealing with our desires and we appreciate every detail! Thank you for your encouragement, guidance and support through the entire process. Placing our trust in you allowed us to have a stress free wedding day!
We were and are so grateful.

Deborah and Cassie,
Just a note to send my praises and let you know how much I enjoyed working with you. You definitely made my life much easier and you were definitely on task and timing. That means so much to a caterer. It was a great reception and very much a enjoyable event from all aspects. I drove away and said that was a great evening. I do believe that you were the driver for the success. I look forward to our next event together.

With love and great appreciation,

Deborah and Cassie,
Thank you so much for all that you did to make my wedding day perfect! The day was absolutely flawless. If anything went awry, I did not know about it – which is great. Matt and I were talking last Sunday as we were at the airport and he was really happy that we had you at our wedding. He doubted me for the past year that we actually would need your help, but you definitely came through and took care of things the entire day. I feel so grateful for all the hard work you both did along the way and on our big day. If you ever need a reference in the future for potential clients, I am happy to tell them how wonderful you are to work with. THANK YOU!
~Kim & Matt Davis (Bride & Groom ~ January 1, 2011)
I had such a fabulous wedding!!! I would do it all over and over again I had so much fun. There was nothing that I think went wrong or that I was upset about. Everything ended up being so beautiful and it was more than I could have ever asked for. I really appreciated you, Cassie, and your team. It was so nice not having to worry about anything the day of. You made it so easy to get married. So many of my friends have said they would never do it again and I don’t feel that way at all, we were so lucky to have you. Thank you for EVERYTHING!!!!!!
~Kelly McGaha (Bride ~ December 31, 2010)
Thank you so much to Deborah and her team for helping to keep us organized! When we met Deborah, I just had the best feeling about working with “A Touch of Elegance” due to not only her organizational skills, but also her friendly and caring demeanor. I felt she truly cared about our wedding, something that sets her apart from many others. She kept us on track with the homework, coordinated the many (wonderful) vendors, ensured the overall vision the vendors created was carried out perfectly and kept the day running smoothly and organized. She even helped us coordinate the vendors for the last minute move of the ceremony indoors. With her help, we were able to enjoy the wedding weekend without any stress. Thank you for all you have done –you did an amazing job!
~Rania Schimmelpfennig (Bride ~ October 2, 2010)
Thank you ladies so much for such a beautiful wedding that Justin and I will treasure forever in our hearts. God has definitely given you ladies a wonderful gift and we are truly and greatly so appreciative for all of the hard work. Many blessings!
~Jennyfer Lingbeck (Bride ~ September 4, 2010)
Wow! Thank you all for making our wedding absolutely perfect! When we first met, I was struck not only by your obvious talent, but also by the genuine care you have for your clients. This combination is what makes A Touch of Elegance extraordinary.
Throughout the planning process, we appreciated your gentle encouragement to “do our homework.” You kept us on track, and therefore spared us of any pre-wedding anxiety. And knowing you would be there to guide us on the big day, we felt so comfortable. At such an emotional time, not having to worry about anything left plenty of room to just feel happy. What a great gift!
During our rehearsal and on the wedding day, everything flowed like it had been done a thousand times before. We have received numerous compliments from our guests about how smoothly the evening went. My dad told us that as he spoke with guests at the end of the night, he kept hearing superlatives like “best, perfect, etc.” We put a lot of thought and hard work into our wedding, but know that it couldn’t have been this perfect without your help.
Thank you so much for all that you have done for us – you are all so amazing and we will tell everyone at every chance we get about A Touch of Elegance!
~Andrew & Courtney Gillman (Groom & Bride ~ August 13, 2010)
I don’t know where to begin because ATOE went way above and beyond my expectations. Deb and Cassie are the perfect team and they became my family through my entire wedding process. From their creative ideas to their flawless execution, they were a five star team all the way. I had a lot of my vision and ideas already figured out but needed assistance for the things I just didn’t have enough time for. ATOE allowed me to tend to my other responsibilities and they took the wedding stress off of my hands. Their relationships with vendors also made the planning process easy as they were able to make just one phone call and get anything taken care of. Because of Deb and Cassie I had the wedding of my dreams and actually got to enjoy it. They truly made my day elegant and I appreciate them for that. Most importantly, I have two new friends for a lifetime!
~Jennifer Reef (Bride ~ July 31, 2010)
Where to begin with Deborah and her team?! We could not have been more pleased with how our wedding day turned out. Not only our wedding day, but the months leading up to it as well. From the time we got engaged in September and had our first meeting with Deborah I knew we were in good hands. Deborah is super-duper organized but does not come across as a stuffy, no-nonsense wedding planner.
Deborah is truly a joy to spend time with and working with her gave us the chance to breathe easier knowing that she was thinking of the things that may have slipped our minds. I cannot imagine how our day would have gone without her. She is extremely professional, VERY detail oriented, and just overall fun to work with. Not only is Deborah amazing to work with, but her staff is kind and professional as well.
Her timelines were very helpful and she is just a wealth of information. It was great to be able to email or call Deborah whenever a questions would pop up. She is excellent at returning calls/emails in a timely manner. I would absolutely, positively recommend her to anyone in/near Indianapolis looking for a wedding planner!
