I don't usually give 5 stars but Tiffany did an outstanding job at my daughters's wedding. We had 165 guests with 18 in the bridal party. It was such a relief to have someone else handling all of the details that the wedding day involves. She answered emails, phone calls always promptly, came to the rehearsal and organized the bridal party and music. She did an amazing timeline that everyone appreciated, including the band. The day of the wedding went so smoothly because of her attention to details...too many to mention here. Please don't hesitate to use her services. She is very good.
Alisa was hired to cater our wedding of 35 guests at a private residence. She went above and beyond call of duty with cocktails, appetizers, the dinner, and setting up, breaking down the event. She arrived early to set up for both the ceremony and the dinner, and provided the cocktails and beer which received reave reviews from the guests. For the appetizers, she provided polenta bites and bruschetta in keeping with our Italian menu and both were really tasty. The dinner menu consisted of a caesar salad with grilled salmon, tomato bisque, and a cappellacci di zucca; all were truly delicious. She cleaned up the same night, making it easy for us to enjoy the kitchen the next morning for breakfast. If I were to host another event, I would hire Alisa in a heartbeat.
Elizabeth was absolutely amazing! We hired her two month before our wedding and are sooo glad we did. From the first day we met we knew she was a perfect fit for us. During our first meeting she asked us a whole list of questions, some of which we hadn't even thought of, just to get to get a feel for what we had done so far and what we would need help on, it was a really great first impression. Elizabeth was there with us when our venue tried to jack up the prices of everything a month before the wedding. She emailed a not so pleasant catering manager and made sure every single detail was taken care of, she even got them to throw in a complimentary hot chocolate at our beverage station. She brought so much wedding experience and it really helped guide and shape our wedding. She took care of the little details that someone who has never been married would surely miss. She set up all of our decor day of and was main contact person for any and all things. I got to sit back and enjoy getting ready with my bridesmaids instead of running around making sure everything was perfect. Elizabeth had it handled and she decorated exactly as we discussed if not better! She threw in some touches I didn't even think of! When we were missing something or a decoration wasn't working she knew how to troubleshoot and make it work, which took an enormous amount of pressure on my husband and family. All of our guest had nothing but good this to say about Elizabeth. She was great about directing and moving people where they needed to go with a smile on her face. Never being impolite or pushy, but firm enough so people actually listened. At the end of the night we got to say our good byes and ride off into the sunset. While she coordinated with our family and bridal party and made sure everything was packed, cleaned, and out of the venue right on time. The day after the wedding she called and checked in on us to make sure everything was ok. Elizabeth went above and beyond with us and we are so glad we hired her. I would recommend her to anyone as a day of coordinator or full service wedding planner, she was an absolute dream!
We hired Famous Creations to cater our wedding and they did an amazing job. The food was not as good as I remembered the tasting, but it was cooked on a larger scale and was buffet style, so that is understandable. However, the best part about their services was the hired help. We hired a head server, Jill and two food servers. Jill was basically our wedding planner and did an amazing job making the wedding run smoothly.Also, our wedding cake, made by Famous Creations was to die for! Super moist, beautifully presented and was gone almost instantly. Overall, I highly recommend Famous Creations for their catering services, they made my wedding day run without any problems.
I would highly recommend Matt to anyone. He went above and beyond with coordinating my wedding, and was especially patient with me during my most stressful bridal moments. We even had to go for a Plan B ceremony due to weather, and Matt put everything together so beautifully, it was breath taking. Our wedding ended up being perfect! Thank you for EVERYTHING!
We were extremely happy with Taneva Events. We wanted a simple but elegant wedding in Hawaii and Velina at Taneva Events provided that and more for us. She worked with us on everything from the smallest detail on the dinner napkins to working with vendors on logistical details, setup on the day of the wedding and ensuring our day was perfect. We did not have a clear idea of what we wanted to do for our wedding besides the fact that we wanted to keep it simple and take advantage of the natural beauty of the setting. Velina was really helpful from the start, brainstorming ideas with us, and making suggestions for the decor that we would have never thought of on our won. We did not want traditional flower centerpieces, and Velina was able to accommodate us by creating beautiful pineapple centerpieces, and tied them all together with the runner, candles, handmade napkins, and pedestals that she placed the pineapples on. Everybody complemented the decor and the bridal bouquet that she created from traditional Hawaiian flowers. We could not have had such a beautiful and smooth day without Velina's help. Planning for a wedding is always stressful, but Velina eased a lot of our stress and was always a pleasure to work with.
Loved working with Sassy Diva! The floral design on my wedding day definitely exceeded all of my exceptions. Can't thank you enough, Beth!
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!!
Natasha is a pure talent! She created looks for my small wedding a big wedding that were so perfect! I'm in the bridal business also and I'd never refer anyone other than Natasha!
I contracted Yvette for day of coordination of my wedding. She provided constant contact throughout the process, was prompt in replying to consultation emails, coordinated the rehearsal well based on my wants for the processional and was extremely hands on for the day of. Yvette placed programs prior to my ceremony for my guests and set up all the items I needed for my guests before the reception, including placing table cards for the assigned seating. She coordinated with all my vendors on the day of so that my day was focused on enjoying my wedding versus dealing with any of the organization on the wedding day. She even provided the bridesmaids with an emergency kit to assist with any unexpected day of needs. Thank you so much for the exceptional customer service.
If you want the best of everything, with flawless execution, and a planner that treats your special day as if it were their own, look no further than Marie at Littles 'n Lace Events. From the moment I got engaged and started planning my wedding, I knew I was going to need help. I wanted something beautiful and amazing, but I knew with my full time job, a side business, and lack of knowledge in the area, I wasn't going to be able to do it alone. One of my bridesmaids put me in touch with Marie and I knew she was the perfect solution after our first conversation. She helped me plan and organize the event from start to finish and executed all of my ideas down to the smallest details perfectly. My bridal party, and even the guests at the wedding, said they have never attended a more organized event. Most importantly, I was able to relax and enjoy my wedding day because I knew that Marie was there to handle any issues that would arise. Marie is extremely organized, proactive, detail oriented, and professional. She kept in consistent contact with us during the entire planning process to see how she could help and made sure we were staying on track so that we didn't miss a thing. She took care of a lot of details that I would have never thought of. She also introduced us to some of our favorite vendors and made sure all of our vendors worked together to make our vision became a reality. Hiring Littles 'n Lace Events was the best money we spent on the entire wedding. We can't imagine this beautiful day without having had Marie behind the scenes making it all come to fruition.
Danny's floral arrangements are beautiful and thoughtful composites plucked out of fairy tale imagery. I was a bride who hired Danny for my wedding flowers. Originally, I just wanted fresh flowers, some roses, something simple and pretty. However, for the centerpieces, I requested a special set-up with Moroccan lanterns, rustic wood slabs, and flowers spilling out the lanterns flanked by oranges (a Chinese symbol for fortune). In addition, I noted that our wedding colors were pink, blue, cream and gold. Danny was extremely open, flexible, and considerate in listening to my and my husband's vision. In addition, there were a few last minute changes such as: number of reception tables, changing my bouquet to a cascade bouquet, and adding more corsages and boutonnieres to the order. Danny was always very patient and graciously said that he'll do everything he could to make my wedding a dream come true. On the day of my wedding, I walked into my bridal changing room and saw the most gorgeous bouquet I'd ever seen. Blush roses, blue orchis, delicate violet flowers, and eucalyptus coins tumbled majestically in a floral waterfall - wild and natural, yet together making a disciplined formation. Later, I walked down the aisle and saw my beloved standing in front of a gazebo that was swathed in white chiffon and vibrant florals, also Danny's work. An hour and a half later, when we entered the reception room, I was met with the magnificence of our sweetheart table. Being a practical person, I had just discussed with Danny that we'd have a simple sweetheart table with my bridal bouquet as a centerpiece. What met my eyes was a golden tablecloth filled with rosette swirls. Across it were crystal goblets, Moroccan lanterns juxtaposed with oranges and golden frames containing my husband's and my pictures and standing atop tomes and wooden slabs. In that moment, my simple self became suddenly enraptured by a desire for lovely things, and in my transformation, decided that I must preserve my bridal bouquet. Danny indeed works magic.
First off, I should mention that I live in Chicago, and I'm having my wedding in Chicago; this means that Sepideh is supporting my wedding planning process from afar and I'm happy to share that the distance hasn't had any impact on the quality of her support--she's so responsive that it feels like in the same city as me! You'll find that she's incredibly intuitive, versatile, and has a knack for seeing how all the little details will come together on your big day! It's so nice to be working with someone who offers a wide range of services throughout the engagement and wedding process. I've been able to go to her for end-to-end wedding planning, pre-wedding event support, and consultations. In moments where I've needed guidance on how to do my wedding party "proposals" ("will you be my...?"), engagement photo shoots, vendor suggestions, you name it--she's been a wealth of knowledge and a huge time saver! I highly highly recommend using Sepideh for any wedding related support!
I've had the pleasure of working with Chef Dilemma for the last three years. She has consistently been professional, flexible, and open to working in unconventional settings with ease and grace. I run an event venue (Mendocino Magic) which hosts a variety of themed campouts and special events throughout the year. Utilizing her feedback from the perspective of a professional chef who has had years of experience, I have been able to optimize the campground's cooking facilities to suit a wider array of catering needs. The growth capacity of my business has improved because of her critical input and the benevolent impact of her talented networking skills. I would recommend booking a tasting with Chef Dilemma for smaller private events at your home or office or retreat, feeding artists and volunteers for larger events, nurturing your wedding party, outdoor large animal roast, or even simply as a consultant for your next big idea.
Tina was our event planner for a friend's bridal shower and was excellent! She is thorough and follows through with all of my requests 🙂
Casablanca Bridal Catering recently catered an event for me, and their service and food was far beyond anything I could have imagined. When I was preparing for my wedding, I was able to work with Cher and Derrick to give my general parameters for the type of food and cake that I desired, and they took what I said and pulled off a delectable and crowd pleasing menu, all while managing to stay within my budget. Not having to worry at all about the catering, and everything smoothly progressing from beginning to end, including setup and cleanup, was one of the key reasons my perfect day was so wonderful! I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a pleasant and fulfilling catering experience.
I had the opportunity to work with emanÃ© on a number of projects over a couple of years. The projects included producing music and history programs and moderating a panel. The Chief Consultant of emanÃ© is talented, intelligent, poised and confident. She works well with others and has excellent communication skills. She is a team player and willing to put in extra effort if and when required. As a result of emanÃ©âs efforts the programs ran smoothly, were within budget and were very well received.
