About this pro
I had an 8th grade graduation party for my son in June 2016. Kelly at Orchid Moon helped me with all the planning, coordination and execution of the party. My son, his friends and our family had a wonderful time. Our guest had fun filled day and evening thanks to Kelly. She knew I wanted a party that he would always remember and she accomplished our goal. Thank you Kelly!!!Jun 28, 2016Verified
I got married in Dana Point and had my receptions in the Cove Room on the Harbor. I reserved the room and only had a couple hours before the reception to set up. Kelly did an absolutely amazing job! With only a few hours, she decorated the room exactly how I pictured it. She went above and beyond and stayed around when the guests arrived to assure that everything was prepared and ready! She was there early and assured everything was perfect! Everything ran smoothly and it was such a good feeling to know everything was getting sone and I didn't have to stress about it! I would definitely use Kelly again!!!Nov 26, 2014Verified

I needed someone who was trustworthy, honest, professional, and patient! kelly Ten Berge fulfilled all of my expectations. I met kelly through Thumbtack, when I was going through a difficult financial season. She was patient and kind in her attentiveness to my needs. After communicating with her via phone, email and text I decided she was the ideal event planner for my son's Couple's Wedding Shower. Kelly helped with finding the perfect venue which was held at the Lakewood Country Club, in the city of Lakewood. The event took approximately 3 months to plan and be executed. I can you tell Kelly never missed a beat. She did all of the telecommunications and became that middle person for me. I was so Blessed to have her, seeing that we lived hours away from each other. I was very impressed with kelly's services from the first time we met face to face. On that same day she said OK! let's get started and off we went looking at venues. I did not need to say anything, during that initial process I was just there for the ride... she did all of the enquires and collected all of the information need. Soon after I got the call from Kelly we have found the perfect venue for you special event. Kelly would keep me up to date and well informed about pricing, menu,decorations, capacity, cake, music, flowers, theme and so much more. As a matter of fact! I have a bit of a confession.... she made me feel like a movie star who had a personal assistant, I must tell you I was loving it!!!!! Kelly went over and beyond for me and we pulled off an excellent Couples Wedding Shower. Kelly was very on time with everything, if she was running behind with an answer for me, she would alert me with a text or a phone call... She sure knew how to take the stress off me. Nothing that was expected of Kelly went wrong... She gave an excellent services and I would not hesitate to use her services again as well as, recommend her services to anyone planning something special for themselves or a family member. We truly thank you Kelly!May 28, 2014Verified
