    Debbie helped me with a 40th birthday party. She was very easy to work with, had lots of ideas and contacts to make the event a very fun occasion. I would recommend her for efficiency, creativity, cost and contacts.

    Firstly I have been waiting to write this review from so long. Since I didn’t take so much excitement in writing a review for anyone before. That’s how much I was flattered by Debbie Kennedy Events. First time to use event planner in America, I was searching for an expert for my son’s first birthday party. On top of it for a very picky and fickle person like me found it very hard to finalize on a professional and make sure I am not getting cheated. The first call I had with her she quickly caught up with me and the theme I had in my mind that assured me that Debbie knows what she is talking especially during our first consultation, me and my husband we were flattered by what she bought to the table. From there on in finalizing the venue, decorations, food and fun activities this couldn’t have developed so easily without Debbie’s expertise. She did a fantastic job and so we're grateful having Debbie help us celebrate our Sons 1st bday! Debbie was very accommodating and attentive to every detail we have agreed during the planning. She did everything firstly hearing to all my requirements, finalizing them and showing me a mock up (like really) and from there on doing everything from set up to clean up. She is purely one of a kind and highly expertized. All my guests were flattered and enjoyed the party so much. We would definitely love love love to work with her again and highly recommend to others...! I would definitely hire Debbie again for any events/parties I may have in the future. It’s worth spending money for the great and professional service that she renders. Definitely a five star!!!

    If you don't want to be too stressed out with all of your wedding details (because it's not like you don't already have enough to do) this is the company that takes care of all of that for you! Debbie personally was such a great help trough this whole process for my husband and myself. Such great design ideas, and help with piecing the whole day together! I would definitely recommend her if you want a beautiful experience. This is supposed to be such a special time for the bride and groom let Debbie make that possible for you too!

    I have high standards and I can easily say that Debbie was the best wedding planner I could ever ask for. She was always positive, always had a solution to everything we needed, always kept my budget front of mine and was just purely delightful to work with. I will keep in touch with Debbie just because I like her so much and I highly recommend her. Please feel free to contact me anytime if you want to discuss further, but you will be making a good decision if you go with her!

    My experience with Debbie Kennedy Events & Design was absolutely phenomenal! Debbie and her team took my vision for my graduation celebration event, enhanced it, and executed the event flawlessly. Debbie stood out among all seven event planners I interviewed because of her extensive experience, professionalism, creativity, and take-charge attitude. It was a joy and pleasure to work with her. With Debbie and her team at the helm, I didn’t have a care in the world. I can’t wait to work with her again!
