When I started planning my wedding, I felt overwhelmed by the task of building a team for my special day. I did several phone interviews with bartenders, but I really only needed to do one. Drew was so professional, knowledgeable, and helpful that I knew right off the bat that I would hire him. When I first met him the day of my wedding, I was feeling so nervous and uptight. When Drew introduced himself and his team of Vincent and Kali, their warm and easygoing smiles immediately put me at ease. They set up lightning fast and even zoomed to the store to get more ice and lemons before the event started! They were so professional and personable...almost every one of my guests commented on how much they loved Drew and wish he could have stayed even longer! I gave Drew and his team a very difficult task of pouring champagne for nearly 100 people, then during the toast and cake cutting, asked them to break down the tables and chairs to clear the dance floor. Somehow, they pulled it off....plus they finished in time to help cut and pass cake!! One of the best parts is that at the end of the evening while I was dancing with all of my friends and family, they cleared the remainder of the tables, and folded and stacked the chairs. They cleared away all of the garbage and recycling and left it neatly tied by the cans. I can't believe how quietly and efficiently they worked and I literally did none of the clean up. I will always be grateful to Drew, Kali, and Vincent for making my wedding perfect. Thank you!!!
I hired Rev. Saundra through thumbtack to be the officiant for my wedding March 30th 2016. And she was everything that I could of ever imagined and more. She met with my fiance and I and got a feel for our character. She is very attentive and friendly she made my wedding planning go so smoothly since she is also a coordinator. During the reharshal she was able to quickly get everybody in their correct places. During the actually wedding day she had such good energy and I felt like she was in my life for way longer than a month. She is truly God sent and I was honored to have her marry me and my husband.
We had a wedding rehearsal dinner on a Friday and I connected and ordered on Tuesday of the same week. Professionals all the way and the food was outstanding! Thank you Evan and Gabby!
Michael showed up on time, stayed late, and made sure all 80+ people at my wedding were served promptly. He was able to handle a crowd of drinkers by himself and the drinks were very good.
Before I give my glowing review of Tiffany, I have to preface the review with a few words so you know that I was in your shoes. Wedding planning sucks and having to stick to a limited budget doesn't it make it easier. As a bride, sometimes you have to cut corners in order to afford simple things (or let's be honest more desired things) for your wedding. Hiring a full service wedding planner, was one of those things that I really wanted, but I knew it would take a huge chunk out of my wedding budget. My wedding was in San Francisco, so its not the cheapest city to have your wedding. But after receiving price quotes from full service wedding planners, their prices depressed me (adding unnecessary stress to my wedding budget woes) and when I looked at their packages, I just didn't feel like it was right for me or my budget. I had to take a step back, breathe, and take ownership of wedding planning and face reality. I knew what Id need to do, to stay on budget. I had big decisions to make as a bride, but I knew I could save a ton, if I planned my own wedding. So I thought hey I plan many events for my friends, family, and clients all the time, weve got about 85-100 guests to invite, why not plan my own wedding, and hire a day of coordinator to save money?" I did just that and when I was in the process of looking for a day of coordinator, my next thought was, "shoot if I hire a day of coordinator, will I overlook something and regret not hiring a full service wedding planner?". With caution, I started to ask for quotes for day of coordinators and realized right away what I needed to do. I put a request up on Thumbtack and the email quotes came rolling in. I was astonished. But I was in a conundrum - every price was competitive, so how does one choose a vendor over the other. All of them had amazing reviews (which put my initial concerns more at ease). I spent a few days emailing back different vendors, asking them questions, reading their reviews, even looking them up on Linkedin! I did some my research and eventually decided on Tiffany Won. Choosing her as the day of coordinator was one of the best decisions I made during the wedding planning process. 3 pieces of advice if you DIY: First off ladies, have more confidence in your planning abilities and use the resources the internet provides you (there are a ton of wedding checklists and schedules online to help you plan your own wedding, and for inspiration for décor or what not, pinterest was key for me). It might be intimating at first, and the time involved in planning your wedding might feel like an absolute time suck, but trust in yourself and plan your day. No one has a better vision of what you want for your wedding, more than you. Secondly, trust in a day of coordinator like Tiffany to execute on your vision. She's top notch and will be a valuable asset in your planning process. I hired her as my day of coordinator. I was a little anxious, but after I spoke with her on the phone and especially after I met her before my wedding for the 2 hour pre-wedding meeting, I could tell that she had plenty of experience in event planning and coordination. Not only does she have experience in wedding planning, but she has extensive experience planning corporate events and conferences, which as you know, could range from hundreds to thousands of attendees. My thought was, if this girl can plan corporate events that are large scale, she will definitely be able to coordinate my smaller scale event. She also asked the right questions before the wedding, which put my concerns at ease, since she is very sharp and it became clear to me, that event planning plays a very familiar story in her head, a story she knows word for word. Thirdly, stick to your budget. If you need to roll up them sleeves and plan your wedding, just do it. But call in some cavalry to take over on the day of your wedding day because youll need it. Make sure you go with a pro like Tiffany. Im pretty detailed oriented. So is she. I thought I had every detail planned, all she has to do is follow the schedule. You know what, she was able to catch holes in my schedule and my planning. She worked with me to double check my wedding schedule and everything the whole shebang from pre-wedding day stuff like what time the florist will set up, when will the lighting company get to the venue, advice or a second opinion on wedding décor, suggestions for additional vendors .even ceremony logistics such as where people would stand, the flow of the event, gaps in the vendors schedules and the wedding reception details like when the band would take their breaks so she can play an ipod or something so background music would play, helping with the mic transition from the emcee to other guest speakers, overseeing food service so there wasn't a huge gap between the appetizers and dinner, making sure I ate, making sure the groom and I did our table rounds to thank our guests for coming, making sure at the end of the evening someone could collect my wedding gifts, etc etc. Tiffany did a phenomenal job at overseeing every tiny detail the day of the wedding! My wedding went smoothly, the guests had a fantastic time, I now have memories that will last a lifetime, and this was all because I had help taking some wedding responsibilities off my shoulders, I'm so glad I hired Tiffany! Tiffany went over and beyond the call of duty and at a very fair price. Whether you hire her as a day of coordinator or hire her for full service wedding planning (or to plan any type of event), do yourself a favor and put her in your top consideration list. I would hire her again if I could. I will certainly be recommending her to my friends and family. And if you hire her, Im sure you will eventually do the same. Kudos Tiffany for the excellent work! Written by a very happy bride :)
She was very laid back and I mean this in a good way. I like to be in control when planning my wedding or events and she made sure to listen and make sure all my visions and choices were taken care of! At our wedding I didn't feel stressed at all and having her took a lot of potential stress off my shoulders. She was extremely helpful and good at communicating with me. Thanks !
My wife and I hired AnnaMarie as our day of coordinator for our private estate wedding. It turned out to be record heat that day which added an extra degree of difficulty to an already logistically complicated event but AnnaMarie kept her cool and did an awesome job for us! She is extremely experienced and poised for all that can go wrong during an event and handled ours like a true professional. Would highly recommend!
Manya communicated with me constantly. I had several items on my "Wish List" and she made all of them come true. I HIGHLY recommend Dazzling Streaks. We had 250 people at our company picnic. I had compliments the whole time and after the picnic. Our Marketing people loved her too. Better start hiring Dazzling Streaks before her calendar fills up! :0) Thanks Manya for making this experience a great one!
I want to give these guys a million stars. They catered our wedding back in August and they were the best vendor team anyone could have ever asked for. They were SO fun to work with throughout the whole process and made everything so easy and stress free. I cannot imagine working with anyone else. Everyone was raving about the food and the best cupcakes and cake they had EVER had (honestly we weren't even going to have a cake at all until we tasted there's). Thank you Nick and the whole Famous Creations team for making our wedding the best day of our lives and making the wedding planning fun!!
I found Matt as a great and competitive bid on Thumbtack for my wedding personal flowers. I had made my own centerpieces and alter pieces. I sent Matt pictures of my inspiration bouquet and my own creations. I told him I was open minded as long as everything flowed nicely together. I was more than pleased! We got much larger flower arrangements than I had anticipated for the price. They looked amazingly similar to my inspiration pic and also blended well with the decor I had created. Matt was very responsive and easy going via email and didn't worry that one of my payments was a bit late. My wedding planner picked up the flowers, but she said there were no problems with this process either. Overall, flowers were not something I thought I cared too much about--however Matt not only made them fit within my budget, but also made them one of my favorite touches to our wedding. I cannot recommend Forsyth Designs enough. Wonderful to work with all around.
Marianne was our florist for our wedding and EVERYTHING was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! We got so many compliments with all the services she provided for us. She brought my visions to life!! She's very sweet, professional and responds to any questions or concerns promptly. My mother and I are extremely detail oriented and she did everything she could to make sure my wedding was perfect and beautiful. Marianne listened to all my thoughts and ideas and was able to give feedback and follow with other amazing ideas. I had many headaches and stressful moments planning my wedding, but I never had to stress about my flowers because I trusted her with everything and knew she was going to make things wonderful. I can't thank her enough for all the hard work she did. I recommend Marianne for not only weddings but any occasion that you need a florist!
Exceptional. We hired Zach to cater and teach a sushi making class for 6 couples at my house for my wife's birthday. He was incredibly responsive and thoughtful. We emailed and spoke several times in advance of the event about what my expectations for the evening and the types of fish we wanted and what we wanted to make. He also give me a lot of tips on sake -- so I went out and bought several bottles of sake for the guests to do a sake taste testing He drove down to silicon valley from Sonoma, purchased the fish fresh from his contacts at Fisherman's Wharf, and arrived at our home later than expected but well before the guests, so we had plenty of time. He prepared 3 appetizers for us -- an excellent Japanese beef dish, a poke/ponzu dish and a scallop and moon fish sashimi dish with a coconut sauce. Then he taught the group how to make rolls and we each made several rolls with a wide variety of fish and ingredients that he brought. Zach explained a lot about sushi making, from how he evaluates the fish, how it should be cut, how sushi restaurants operate, what to look for at sushi restaurants, etc. His involvement in the evening beyond just preparing the food really helped make the party a lot of fun.
I didn’t take pictures to show you guys but Cheri did an excellent job on my fiancé’s and my dinner for two. Not only did the food taste great but the set up was very nice. We had no hesitation hiring her for our upcoming June 2019 wedding! She will give you quality food for an affordable price. Not to mention she also has other vendors if your looking to have her company cater your wedding. She puts time and detail into her creations. I definitely recommend her.
From a parents perspective, the day your only daughter gets married is a day like no other! Looking back at Jessica and Mikes wedding last year at Mission Santa Clara, we are filled with deep gratitude for the many amazing vendors that contributed to such a memorable day - and Mary Kay Mitchell of MKultra Events was at the top of our list! Contracting with Mary Kay to help us plan and organize the myriad of details and logistics was undeniably one of our smartest decisions! I'll never forget Mary Kay's reassuring words on the day we first met, several months before the wedding: "YOUR job is to celebrate, have fun, be with your daughter, your future son-in-law, your family...and experience fully the joy of each moment of the day! Forget about the the logistical details, the vendors, and 'To Do' tasks. That's MY job - Leave that to me!" Whew! A huge weight and concern was lifted from our shoulders! In the months before the wedding, Mary Kay collaborated and strategized with us on event planning/details such as reception table decor, flowers, maps, web content, directional signage, music, gift-baskets for our out-of-town guests, etc., etc. When 20+ relatives arrived from the East Coast the week before the wedding, we could "let go" and hand the remaining 'To Do' lists and details over to Mary Kay! After months and months of planning, the 'Big Day' goes by in a flash. As a parent, what do you want to remember? Certainly not logistics or unexpected surprises. No one has a crystal ball, and one never knows what unexpected issue or circumstance might "pop up" on the actual day of the wedding. With her years of hands-on experience, numerous vendor connections and expertise in wedding planning and large events, our hearts and minds were *immediately* put at ease. We knew Mary Kay could handle any situation that might come up. Mary Kay, your 'can-do' attitude, positive energy, creative solutions, time (and money!) saving suggestions, excellent planning and communication skills, infectious laugh and sense of humor... well, simply put, we truly cannot THANK YOU enough. We feel doubly blessed, as we now have a new friend in you! :-) You've made a HUGE difference in our lives - and ensured that a once-in-a-lifetime day filled with high and heartfelt emotions, nervous energy, joyful tears, prayers, celebration, dancing, laughter and love would be a day like no other!
I was the kind of bride that contemplated whether I needed a wedding planner or not and I can’t say enough how relieved I am to have hired Courtney! She exceeded our expectations during the planning stages by being responsive, offering suggestions, and just being there when we needed her. She was our month of coordinator but she assisted well in advance to make sure our timeline was perfect. I honestly don’t know what we would’ve done without her! The wedding went as smoothly as possible and we have Courtney to thank. She worked with all vendors, made sure we stayed with the timeline as much as possible, and even helped decorate our welcome table, guestbook table, and centerpieces as a part of her duties. Courtney, you were such a pleasure to work with!
This review is long overdue (wedding was 10.20.17), but I wanted to make sure I shared my experience with Exquisite Weddings & Events! I had decided to plan everything myself to save money (bad idea). About 6 weeks before the wedding I was so stressed out, up to my throat in "things to do." It dawned on me that the only way I could maintain a healthy level of sanity was if I hired a day of coordinator since I had done mostly everything else up to that point. I wasn't able to meet Jill in person until the wedding because I live in San Diego (wedding was in Yosemite). She was very friendly and professional for our consultation call - I immediately felt like I was comfortable working with her long distance and hired her the next day. Let me just say, Jill went above and beyond BEFORE the "day of" that I hired her for. Although I had done a lot (so I thought), there was still so much more to do... thank goodness Jill was there to help me! She tied up loose ends with a couple of the vendors that I had been having a hard time communicating with. She stayed on top of keeping in contact with all my vendors regarding any changes, confirming details, etc. She was even so kind as to loan me a few decorations that I couldn't figure out at the last minute. As soon as Jill got to the cabin on the wedding day, she immediately got to work setting up last minute decorations. I didn't see her again until the ceremony and she did a great job making sure everything ran smoothly. After the ceremony, she went straight to the reception and met all the vendors there to help get everything set up. When the wedding party arrived, it was clear everyone had been taken care of. Needless to say, the rest of the reception was a breeze! I would highly recommend Exquisite Weddings & Events. If I had to do it all over again, the only thing I would change would be to hire Jill as my full time coordinator rather than day of. For the price, it doesn't get any better! Thanks Jill!!
Working with Olivia's Oasis Events was a wonderful experience. Valerie was able to take our vision for our wedding and execute it flawlessly. Our wedding day was the best and we have Valerie to thank for shouldering our burden of putting together our day. Thanks!!!
The party was perfectly planned and executed--every last detail was very well thought out and top notch!! A fabulous time was had by all, thanks to Robyn!!
Very friendly and professional. A definite referral to friends and family for special events
I could not have imagined a better wedding day and it was in large part due to all the hard work Marissa put in. I had a few items figured out and thought I would be able to plan the entire wedding on my own, thank goodness Marissa was recommended by a friend! I was unsure on the "theme" direction I wanted to go and Marissa was able to quickly determine my actual wants and make them come to life. She had great suggestions on vendors and handled the details with all of them. She also did all of my flower arrangements, including the bouquets and boutonnieres, which were beautiful. My rehearsal and wedding day were absolutely perfect. I didn't once think about any detail or item I may had forgotten because Marissa had everything so put together and organized that I never felt the need to worry. I would refer her to any one of my family members or closest friends at any time! If stress free wedding planning is what you are looking for, Marissa is your lady!
Christina and her team at CRC Custom Events were amazing! We would 100% recommend her. We hired her for day-of coordination and venue decor. She did so much for us leading up to the wedding and making sure we were thinking through everything. She is easy to work with and we were able to trust her to use her own judgement with some of the decor arrangements. Seriously, our wedding looked so beautiful; above and beyond our expectations!
