Not sure that I could really fit all the amazing things I think about Eric Baker and team in a small paragraph, but here goes… He is remarkable and I will use and recommend his services for any event I host. Most people I interviewed with in Key West wanted to charge me for a phone call, email, advice, etc. which I thought was crazy (I know some brides take advantage of this). Eric is a warm person who you will instantly connect with. His taste is impeccable and he needs VERY little direction on décor, because he is creative and a visionary. His recommendations on other vendors were on point- loved them all. The month-of he put together a great packet for all vendors, which was a relief as a bride, to know that it’s all together and organized. The day-of he was extraordinary, I felt like I had someone handling every little thing for me so I could really enjoy my wedding. Most of the blogs you read, tell you, you don’t have time to eat, you don’t have time together, etc. etc. but with Eric handling it all, you HAVE the time to appreciate your wedding day. Everyone complimented me on how calm I was the day of, well that’s because I knew I had the best wedding coordinator around.

Based on our experience (as parents of the bride), Eric Baker of A Modern Romance must certainly be the top wedding consultant in Key West. For those planning a wedding long-distance, Eric is the one to hire, particularly if you plan on enjoying your own celebration. Eric is creative and adds his special touches to the bridal couple’s vision of the event, which is comfortably collaborative for all involved and budget appropriate. He is well respected by the local vendors and, consequently, knows how to seamlessly coordinate all of the moving parts that are involved in a destination wedding. In our family’s case, we hosted a three-day celebration at Southernmost House for 100 people with multiple events. It was beyond the call of duty, but he was tireless and unflappable in coordinating all of the events at the scene. He is open to new ideas and always diplomatic in his interaction with everyone. We particularly appreciated his responsiveness to our calls and emails during the planning stage. As a consequence of his tactful guidance and helpful suggestions throughout the entire process, the celebration was lovely and stress-free. We received many compliments from guests about how organized the entire weekend was and how much fun they had, but our family is well aware of Eric’s many contributions to our success. We would highly recommend that the bride and groom confirm Eric’s availability before booking either the venue or date for the wedding.

I could not - in ANY way - be happier with Eric Baker and the A Modern Romance team than I am right now!!!! My wedding was only 4 days ago so my memories are startlingly fresh, and A Modern Romance made the dream in my head a reality. They charge a PERCENT of your budget, no matter how low or high your budget is, so it's affordable for literally everyone. If you have a normal-girl-next-door budget and want a magazine-cover-fabulous wedding, you need A Modern Romance. AND I can tell you right now brides, wedding planning is INSANELY less stressful with a wedding coordinator!! Eric was worth his weight in gold only a week into the planning process. And my wedding...it was a true fairy tale!! THANK YOU A MODERN ROMANCE! I am one happy bride!!

While researching a destination wedding in Key West, we came across Eric Baker and A Modern Romance. We did not utilize a wedding planner at first because of financial factors, but when we decided we needed a little help, Eric proved to be the ultimate partner in planning our dream wedding.
As soon as we spoke with Eric, the stress of planning a wedding 1800 miles away quickly dissappeared. If we had an issue or a question, Eric took care of it. He made himself available for anything we needed from coordinating day- of services to finding my grandmother a wheelchair for the weekend.
Eric not only helped make our day (or week for that matter) amazing, but he also quickly became a friend. We will continue to recommend A Modern Romance to anyone who plans on having their special day in South Florida!
