Dj Charlie was great! We didn't have a planner and he pretty much ran the show. I would recommend him for any event or would book him again for any party I may be throwing in the future. Thanks again Dj Charlie.

Mike catered an event with 60 people expected at our home. Everything I requested food-wise was supplied, and the food was served within our requested time frame. The hamburgers/cheeseburgers and chicken were very good, with all the fresh fixin's, and the chocolate ice cream shakes were awesome. Mike's fryer for the fries was not working, but he was able to use our home oven. Would have loved to have tasted those fresh fried! Suggestions: chill the root beer prior to using for floats, and have enough floats and shakes for each person to have one of each treat. Mike was very easy to work with, and I would use Mike again.

I can't describe how much I enjoyed my experience working with Megan Brown. Her floral arrangements were gorgeous, and she was able to include more flowers than originally proposed because we came in under budget. I LOVED my bridal bouquet and the cohesive elegance of all the flowers for the full bridal party. Megan was able to incorporate my favorite two-toned calla lilies while making the entire arrangement look lush and natural. Delivery was punctual and easy, and her set up in the reception hall looked wonderful. The lantern centerpieces were the perfect match for my vision of Megan communicates well, through both email and text, and is flexible with payment schedules. I highly recommend her floral and event planning expertise!

Rich was AMAZING!! He brought an assistant with him, James... also great! Best idea ever was to hire a service to handle the bartending for our son's 30th birthday party as the list of guests grew to over 100!! We looked into the idea of hiring a bartender only about a week before the event. Rich spent almost an hour on the phone discussing their services and exploring our needs to confirm for us that hiring someone was the right fit. There was no doubt after the first phone call. Rich was easy to contact leading up to the party and provided a list of alcohol and amounts he recommended to suit our needs. They were well prepared and efficient. Rich made sure everyone was taken care of throughout the night of the party. Professional, respectful, and approachable!! Will definitely hire again if we have another large gathering, especially at our home. They really saved the day!!! Thank you again to Rich and James for helping us to make this event so memorable and incredibly special for everyone!!

I hired Haute Productions for a private cooking class for a bachelor party event, and we had the best time. Keith was an awesome teacher and host, he made the experience wonderful. Everyone had a blast and it was the best part of the entire weekend. Not to mention the fact that the food was awesome! I would highly recommend using Haute Productions for any event you may have.

Marie was fantastic to work with! She goes above and beyond as a day-of coordinator to make sure that every detail is in place. She has great organizational and soft skills, which is important when working with family members and vendors. It's apparent she loves her job and genuinely cares about her client. I would absolutely recommend Marie to anyone On the day of our wedding, our Hawaiian Ice vendor wasn't serving the ice cream we had requested (and paid extra for). When I realized this, I was about to go over and talk to the vendor but before I could even step in that direction, Marie intercepted me and said, "Don't you worry about a thing. I'll handle this." A couple minutes later every guest who wanted ice cream had some :) Marie even met us the evening before the wedding to pick up decorations so we wouldn't have to worry about taking them over the day of the event! She is an absolute pleasure to work with and I'm so grateful to have found her. Our wedding wouldn't have been half as spectacular without her amazing support. Marie, thank you so much!! Laurie O.

This was the first time I've decided to hire an event coordinator, and I was extremely pleased with Rolanda's service. She's a true professional, she kept me involved in every step and heard what i wanted to for our event. She put every effort to ensure I was pleased with the service. I would highly recommend Vision into Reality Events- Rolanda for any special event you are planning!

Ricki negotiated her price once we discussed I was only doing a reception and not a wedding ceremony. I didn't give her much time to plan the event, but she showed us multiple venues and we were very happy with our selection. Ricki also did her best to help us stay on budget, she found flowers for an amazing deal, she brought decorations from her house, and she with the sudden weather change she got sun umbrellas in the nick-of-time. She really worked her tail off! It was a great reception, exactly what my husband and I wanted.

Nikki’s a great bartender. She was able to turn around cocktails fast to guests. She’s quick at responding to you via email and she made it easy to pay her (by providing PayPal as an option for the deposit). The guests loved how we had someone shake them up drinks, and it was a relief we didn’t have to make them ourselves. I’m happy Nikki was available and provided us with excellent and friendly service!

Shannon was great! My company hired her for a community Halloween event for children and we were blown away by her talent. She was able to paint every kid's face that wanted a face painting and did an outstanding job! I have not seen better face painting.

This woman is amazing! My son got married recently. I knew the wedding would be beautiful because my daughter-in-law has wonderful taste, but at any event, there is always something that goes wrong. But I must admit, this Annemarie did such a wonderful job and literally nothing went wrong. Plus, she worked tirelessly and always had a smile. I give this woman five stars because she deserves it! A grateful mother-in-law. Judy Friend

I was able to concentrate on other things while lexilou events took care of the decorations. They painted and assembled all my centerpieces for the baby shower and coordinated the event the day of.

When my daughter and I went searching online for someone to help with decorating her wedding reception we found Thumbtack. I typed in exactly what we were looking for and Jennifer with Peachy Keen weddings and event designs responded right away. We setup an appointment to speak with her about our ideas. Again Jennifer promptly confirmed our appointment and was right on time the morning of. She was sensitive to my daughters wants and needs, she contributed in areas we weren't quite sure of what we wanted and exceeded our expectations were we did. She was very attentive the night of the event and and was right there all night to do her best to try and keep us on schedule. Of course in all events some things don't go exactly as planned but Jennifer never complained. I was very appreciative of all her efforts to help make my daughters wedding as less stressful as possible. I would definitely recommend her and use her again in a heartbeat.

Karen came through big time in helping me put on my wife's 50th Birthday Party. The outpouring of compliments are still coming through from all of the guests in attendance. Not only being very professional, Karen's attention to the details made the difference in an extremely successful party. From the Photo Booth, Pictures, Layout, Venue... Karen kept me informed prior and during the party, keeping a very calm demeanor throughout... very professional! I would definitely use Karen again if needed and would highly recommend to anyone needing an event planner.

Ishita was wonderful with all the services she provided. She was always on top of all the different aspects we needed to have ready for our special event. On top of that, she followed up multiple times well in advance to make sure we were comfortable with our choices and always did her best to show us all the options that existed, whether it was something as small as the different flower arrangements to making sure we had a full understanding of the different decorators that were in the market and how they apply to our tastes. Overall, the services offered were well worth it and we are planning on having her coordinate our wedding next year! We would certainly recommend Ishita as your event planner! - Zinal

I couldn’t have asked for a better party planner. From the very first meeting I knew Rubina and her team would take care of everything. On the day of the party I didn’t have to worry about anything, and just showed up. Everyone loved the decorations and the professional staff. Would recommend highly for any type of event.

We hired Jessica as our day-of coordinator for our summer wedding in downtown Long Beach. She was priced so fairly, especially considering what others in the area were going to charge, but she is worth a lot more! My husband (!) and I are both graduate students whose busy schedules made it challenging to plan the wedding down to the details. We loved Jessica's positivity, support, and suggestions in the moments where we had no idea what we were doing (which was most of the time). She helped us create a vision for our wedding day and coordinated all the vendors. While most of the vendors were great and worked together as a team, our venue was generally unresponsive and Jessica dealt with them sternly, but professionally, to help us nail down the final details. She was available to meet in person and over the phone, doing her best to answer all of our questions and quell every anxiety! We bought several decorations and she told us to bring them in boxes and let her figure out what looked best instead of trying to plan where every little thing would go--I will NEVER forget walking into the venue and seeing it transformed into the PERFECT space. The lights, the tables, the centerpieces--I couldn't believe it had come together so well. The decor and the vibe exceeded every expectation. On the day, she rolled with the punches (like when our favors arrived melted). Her demeanor was calm and it helped me to relax during what could have been stressful transitions--from ceremony to photos to dinner (she made sure we ate) to dancing. I distinctly remember looking over during dinner to see her quietly fixing the two flower girls' "itchy" dresses with tulle. It was such a sweet moment, and just one example of how she went above and beyond to make the whole day great. We will be forever grateful that we found Jessica! She deserves all the praise for making our day perfect. It was so wonderful to be able to put so many details in her hands and trust that they'd turn out well. Even if your venue/event doesn't require a day-of coordinator, I'd really recommend it--and I hope you can book Jessica!! :) -Hilary & Ryan
