ABOUT THE i.e. DESIGN HOUSE
Believe it or not, the story behind The i.e. Design House is a bit of a love story in and of itself. It all started in 2014 with Israel and Emily meeting and instantly connecting through their creative gestures for one another as well as their love for art. They found that many of their conversations in those first few months of seeing one another centered around art and creating. Israel was an artist who owned an art gallery in the Kansas City Crossroads Arts District, and Emily was a schoolteacher who enjoyed bringing creativity into her classroom but felt like she couldn’t do everything she wanted to do with that creative energy. The two fell in love and were married 2 years later. In planning their own wedding, and spending months creating a ceremony backdrop that would eventually become a staple “must see” for all First Friday goers, Israel and Emily decided that creating amazing backdrops, and wedding designs should not stop here. The two began their journey in the Wedding Industry offering both wedding planning, and wedding photography.
The i.e. Design House offers premium service, full service and partial service planning, as well as day of event coordination for weddings, corporate events, anniversary parties, non-profit events, vow renewals, and more. The i.e. Design House organizes, plans, designs, coordinates, and creates a day that is not only memorable for you, but leaves a lasting impression on all of your guests as well. Emily and Israel pride themselves on creating events that exceed all expectations, as they not only provide satisfactory service, but relationship- based service. Why sure, you are probably wanting your event to be seamless, but Emily and Israel want so much more than that for all of their clients. The i.e. Design House works with one goal in mind; to turn that day you’ve been dreaming of, into your reality. Should you choose to use i.e. Design to help plan, design, or coordinate your next, you most definitely will be glad you did.

How do you even start a review when it deserves all the stars in the sky?! And no, I am not joking! Emily is hands down the best planner out there! She was my lifeline starting from the initial meet all the way until AFTER my wedding (I lost my veil and let me tell you, this girl hunted for it and gave it back to me!) Who do you know that would put in that kind of work even after your event? We had our ceremony and reception at completely different locations making it extremely difficult to manage all of the moving pieces. Emily did absolutely EVERYTHING. She helped us build our timeline, shared it with our vendors, organized drop off and pick up times, set up and tore down our decor, and made our day THE BEST DAY EVER!! I can never thank her enough for all that she did, but I will tell every person I know (and people I don't know) all about her and her business. If you think you don't need a planner, think again. If you still don't think you need a planner... keep thinking because YOU DEFINITELY NEED A PLANNER! And Emily with i.e. Design House is the perfect one!
Emily is TRULY a life saver when it comes to the wedding planning and coordinating process. Emily went above and beyond (in my opinion) for a day of coordinator. She picked up decorations at my house the week prior and attended our final walk through. Emily's team did AMAZING day of. She handled all of the little details (and big ones!) so that my family, my (now) husband, and I could fully be present and enjoy the day. Looking back on our wedding day it truly wouldn't have gone so smoothly or been such a perfect day if we didn't have Emily and her team as apart of it. HIGHLY recommend!
Emily was an amazing day of coordinator and we were very pleased with our experience! When it came to planning everything she was very knowledgeable and organized. I would even ask for various recommendations from time to time and she gave great options. She also helped us get a discounted price for some rentals and that’s something she was not obliged to do at all. The day of my actual wedding was perfect and she decorated the space amazingly. She brought my vision to life. In fact she exceeded what I imagined. My husband and I’s friends were a bit messy on the dance floor (spilled drinks a few too many times 😅) and I noticed Emily was there to clean it up immediately. I couldn’t recommend I.e. design enough!!
