Valet parking, security, and clean up crew for wedding at private estate in Beverly Hills on Saturday, June 27, 2015. Eddy personally handled my wedding needs with the utmost care and professionalism. He arrived the day before while the other vendors were setting up to inspect the estate, and also was present both during the Saturday wedding as well as Sunday clean up. I greatly appreciate his firm being able to provide/handle all my service needs. The valets promptly and courteously parked all my guests vehicles while serving as the front line in guarding against tourists from entering the estate. All the valets had uniforms on as well as the security guards arrived in a black suits with ties. Every guard did their job while courteously addressing all my guests. Finally, the clean up thoroughly cleaned the estate the next day with no damage. Eddy and his crew did everything they were supposed to do, and did so professionally, courteously, and promptly. Incidentally, one of my wedding guests used Eddy's service for his Malibu wedding in 2014, and was equally satisfied. The host/owner of the estate also enjoyed Eddy's service, and though I have not followed up, indicated he would use Eddy. Lastly, Eddy is a retired policeman. What this potentially means is that he has a way to chat up other police officers in case you need help managing police when you party or event may run a tad long into the evening or is too loud ;-)
The best party planners in Los Angeles. Anything I envisioned, they delivered above and beyond, providing me not only with the set up but as well as all the rentals in budget price!
Mark is a fabulous chef, event planner and host. His Pacific Rim influenced cuisine is beyond belief. Every time we've hired Mark to cater events/parties my guests ask for some of their favorites, including his coconut shrimp and his ahi tuna tartare. My family even requested him to cater a special Christmas dinner - a delicious memory as always with Mark Kearney. Whether an intimate dinner party or grand event - Mark's the best choice!
I decided to look for a caterer for my Mom's celebration of life and my internet search lead me to Thumbtack. After inputting my needs I quickly received a response back from Tonya at Sierra Madre Catering with a detailed quote and attached menu. When I called to speak with Tonya I immediately got a good vibe from her voice. She seemed excited and eager to help plan our event and made me feel comfortable that everything would be taken care of. I am so thankful I decided to use Sierra Madre for my event. We ordered appetizers and desserts and they arrived and set everything up, brought their own trash cans and kept the tables clean as people were done eating. The staff was professional and nice and their food was DELICIOUS! Many of our guests gave feedback that the food was great and they even ran out of business cards because a lot of people were interested in having their info. At such a difficult time with the passing of a loved one, these details are important but not ones you want to worry about yourselves and Tonya and Sierra Madre staff took that burden off my shoulders and I am so thankful for that. I will recommend them to anyone in need of a caterer for any event and if I could give more than 5 stars I most definitely would!! Thank you Tonya and Sierra Madre Catering!!
Chef Travis was wonderful to work with ahead of our arrival in Vegas, flexible in our conversations, and went out of his way to meet with our event site's owner before I arrived in Vegas, as well as providing a link to a pastry chef, app servers, and a bartender who did a fantastic job for the event. On event day, Travis brought great assistants, and was friendly and gracious with all of our guests. On event day, the menu and the schedule were slightly different from what we had discussed, but overall, he definitely did a wonderful job including clean up, and I would solidly recommend him for other events. Thank you Travis! Great dinner and great job!
It was a pleasure dealing with Michelle in planning our event. Everything went well and the food was great. We will definitely have her cater our next event.
I hired Ricki, my Special Event Genie, to work her magic (and dedicated hard work) on my 70th Birthday Party. Every detail was absolutely perfect. Ricki kept in touch with me by phone, text and in person meetings from the day I hired her, came to my event hours early and stayed late to manage clean up. She knew every aspect of party planning from table position and centerpieces that maintain a theme to creative displays to timelines — All of my guests enjoyed interacting with her and everyone had a good time.
Above, beyond and throughly delightful. The experience from booking to party was an excellent experience. Joanna knows how to bring her A game! As an event planner, I will book Mobile Bartender again and again.
I am a DJ and I have worked with many event planners over the years. Michelle is one of the very best! I find her to be very professional, knowledgable and always prepared. Weddings in particular can have unexpected moments and she handles them with grace and ease. She takes the time to make sure the events she manages are special, memorable and fun! She has a style of class and elegance - and she really seems to care that the clients are having a good time.
I reached out to Nicole and her team for a client who unfortunately fell through (their loss!). Nicole was very attentive, enthusiastic, and delivered in a timely manner. I hope to work with her and her team in the near future, as I was very excited to bring One Last Frog for this project.
Nancy is amazing! I hired Nancy to cook for my clients surprise birthday party and it was the best decision ever! The food was amazing and plentiful! My client was so happy with the way everything turned out and so was I. As an event planner it is very important to have a caterer you can count on, someone who knows exactly what to do, how to do it and what it means to be professional...Nancy you are all that and much more! Thank you for being amazing and I look forward to many more events together!
They were fantastic, very helpful in planning the event. The day of they took care of the set up and took a lot of burden off of me. Will definitely use them again for future needs!
The Perfectly Event Planning Team was wonderful - I'm a highly organized woman, and didn't think I would need any help for the day of my wedding. However, Jessell offered her services and I'm so happy we hired her. I was able to enjoy our wedding and the entire day and just let Jessell worry about the nitty gritty and the payments and the time-line and getting my husband to where he needed to be! We couldn't have done it without her and don't know that we would have wanted to! I highly recommend Perfectly Event Planning to anyone who needs a little order to their event.
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
Christine is one of the most kind, generous, caring people I have ever met. She constantly asked questions about things I never dreamed of, and kept us on schedule throughout the process. She still keeps in contact with me event though the event is over.
Iris did so much for us to make this our best holiday event to date. It was a breeze on my part, she did all of the planning, finding the DJ and venue. We worked together on menu items, and were able to taste test in advance. The salmon was amazing, as was the tri-tip. Iris is also a truly sweet person, and I enjoyed planning this event with her very much. She was very accommodating, and delivered as promised. Thank you! I would highly recommend her for your event planning.
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.
I was extremely happy. Mikala was able to handle the event very professionally. I will definitely be using her services for all my future events. I was given it of compliments on my party.
Karen is amazing! Words can't adequately express my appreciation of this wonderful lady. She did so much to make our event a success and to relieve the stress related to hosting a wedding. We hired Karen to be our "coordinator for the day" for our daughter's wedding. Even though the wedding was small (about 60 guests) and in our home, we wanted someone to help so that WE could be guests ourselves and enjoy the wedding. I did quite a bit of research before choosing and I'm so glad that we chose Karen. She has an infectious smile that puts you at ease immediately. She is also extremely professional and knowledgeable. She asked a lot of questions so that she would have a better idea of what we were envisioning. She had great practical ideas that helped with the flow of the event. We felt like we were in really good hands. When Karen arrived on the day of the wedding, she absolutely blew me away! I gave her a quick tour of everything that was happening and she just took it from there. It was like she was family and had been there a million times. She stayed two steps ahead all night and really made the evening stress free. She has a very unique quality in that she can take charge and provide direction in the nicest most nonabrasive way. When she lets guests know that it's time to move out to the patio for cocktails, or that we're ready for a toast, grand entrance, cake cutting etc. everyone listens and no one feels like they are being "bossed around". When guests left, she did so much to help wrap things up that I actually had to tell her to stop. She's so thoughtful. She pays attention to the smallest details and she really listens. I know Karen has done hundreds of events from large and elaborate to small and intimate. No matter what kind of event your planning, Karen will make it better and she will make your life easier! Thank you Karen for allowing us to relax and truly enjoy Maegan and Danny's wedding! Warm regards, Shelly and Bob
Deuce was truly a lifesaver when it came to planning my husband’s 40th birthday party. I wanted something that would be unforgettable but still within my budget and Deuce was able to come through with everything I wanted and more. I consider myself a pretty creative planner but I definitely pale in comparison to Jackie’s creativity when it comes to decor, presentation, and making the whole event from start to finish very memorable for my husband. Jackie is one of the sweetest, most creative people I have met in this industry and I would recommend Deuce to ANYONE who is planning any event or party. It’s worth every penny spent. Thank you Deuce!!
It was my pleasure working with Katherine. This lady is extremely courteous, professional and caring. She and her team had created wonderful experience and beautiful party for my baby’s 1st birthday. We had a limited area for an event but Katherine came up with a solution to accommodate kids corner and adult mingling. Throughout the process we had an easy communication. Katherine listened and transformed our ideas into reality. She had coordinated everything from decor, food catering to kids entertainment. On the day of the event, her whole team worked very well together. They were all very CALM!!! I had a very stressful personal experience of organizing a party by myself before. The voice in my head kept telling me that I made a right decision of hiring a planner and choosing Lavishly Yours Events. They took my stress away. I was happy! All my friends and family kept saying what a beautiful party! Can’t wait for another event in my life and work again with Katherine.
