My husband and I were coming to San Francisco for our destination wedding. We didn't know anything or anyone in the area. We found Rev Saundra on Thumbtack and since the start she had been nothing short of amazing. She not only did a beautiful job officiating our ceremony, but she was able to help us write our vows, give us advice about obtaining our marriage license and about finding the perfect location for our ceremony. She was enthusiastic and upbeat throughout the entire process. She is extremely organized, and kept us on track to make sure we had everything in place prior to the ceremony. On the day of the wedding, she came early and helped organize the guests into their proper places for the ceremony. Rev Saundra did a phenomenal job and we are so grateful she was the one who married us.
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 was terrific to work with. He helped us out with logistics the day of our wedding and made himself available to perform any task that was required for things to run smoothly. I would definitely recommend him to have on hand to get things done!
From start to finish, it was truly a pleasure to work with Alisa and her top notch team at Passionate Plates. We appreciated her flexibility and cooperation during the planning stages to prepare food for 60 guests at our wedding in Sonoma on Sept. 17, 2016. I am especially grateful for finding such a high quality caterer such as Alisa's Passionate Plates via the Thumbtack website after our caterer had to back out just two months before our wedding due to medical reasons. Foremost, we had nothing but rave reviews from our wedding guests for the high quality of the food, including choices for seafood lovers, steak, chicken, vegetarians and wonderful side dishes. On the big day, her team arrived at the wedding venue to prepare everything fresh and perfectly on schedule based on the timing of the service for a lunch reception. We opted for a more simple buffet style and this worked out extremely well for us. In addition, her team did a superb job with general execution in both the high quality of the food, clearing the tables and leaving the venue's kitchen and table settings sparkling. I have rated Passionate Plates "5 stars" but would give them higher, if possible! Rest assured, you will not regret working with Alisa and her first class team at Passionate Plate.
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 :)
AnnaMarie was a fantastic wedding planner and coordinator for the day of. She was always approachable through phone call, text, and email, and always very responsive. I suspect I could have easily contacted her twice as much as she would not have minded. She always had immediate answers to my questions, too. She had no problem travelling about 50 miles for us for the site venue walk through, the rehearsal, and the day of the wedding. AnnaMarie was incredible on the day of our wedding, she handled all the problems and didn't let us have to worry about them. She put up all the decorations, and handled all the details according to our wants, and stayed until the end of the night cleaning up, and really went made the day run smoothly. I would definitely recommend AnnaMarie and AR Weddings N Events for any of your party coordination/planning needs.
I mentioned this during the speech in my wedding: "I don't know what we would have done without Matt." He helped and guided us since the beginning, from finding a venue for 3 events (it was a destination wedding and we wanted 3 days of festivities, welcome drinks, wedding, and farewell drinks) to the end. Matt was very reliable, professional, and patient. He answered hundreds of emails/questions I had during the planning. Everything turned out to be the way we dreamed about. I loved the decor, flowers arrangements, and the suggestions he gave us when we didn't know what to chose. We are very happy with Forsyth Designs and we'd absolutely recommend him for your event!
Actually I didn't meet the LadyMarry coordinator and florist, until the rehearsal day, because I was planning my wedding remotely in New York. They are very responsive and patient to my endless questions, and did a great job about organizing the rehearsal and communicating with the other vendors. I always saw Melissa and Donna running around. Hiring you was the best decision I made for my wedding. Thank you!
Beth from Sassy Diva Designs & Events was wonderful to work with on our destination wedding in Half Moon Bay, CA! Working via Iowa and Arizona brought a unique set of challenges which Beth accomplished with extreme professionalism! Beth was inspired by our bouquet and boutonniere photos and tweaked the designs to fit the bride's vision! We also rented her yard games, but were not sure the weather would allow us to use them outside. Out of the goodness of her heart, Beth include extra game options that could be played inside. Fortunately, the sun was shining & the skies were blue! Beth and her crew delivered & picked up the flowers and games just as scheduled. We were extremely happy to have the opportunity to work with Beth and would highly recommend her services! The Smith & Sanchez Families
Flowers etc. Did a fantastic job with all the floral arrangements for my wedding. It was easy for me to talk to Vani and share my ideas. She did an excellent job capturing the essence of what I wanted! I also liked the fact that she gave me a quote up front of how much it was going to be. I high recommend her!
We were fortunate to have Kristine and her team help us start to finish with our wedding. Their attention to detail and creative ideas by far take the cake! Would recommend to anyone looking for help with all facets of wedding planning.
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.
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!
Judi made our wedding reception so adorable and unforgettable! Her team took care of our cocktail hour, reception and flowers! Our venue is a Japanese garden, and her asian fusion style of food amuses everyone's mouth! Her team helps with ceremony coordination and rental too! We love how our reception is set up! All these little beautiful details, nice food, welcoming service impressed every guest of us. We would definitely share our wedding pictures when they come out :)
It was a pleasure working with Courtney,very professional and responsive to all of our questions and concerns. She did an amazing job being our coordinator for the month and day of our wedding, we were on time and everything went smooth on our wedding day, couldn't have done it without her!
Christa handled everything I asked her to the day of my wedding. There were many complexities and moving parts because I had a reception and an after party. Christa handled both amazingly well. We met a few times before and spoke on the phone throughout my engagement. I was in great hands with Christa. She had many ideas and helped make my reception beautiful!
Erika (Cast Your Cares Event Planning) is a true professional planner and an excellent event coordinator. Rosa and I chose Erika to coordinate our wedding and although it was the biggest wedding in town, it certainly had it's challenges and Ms. Erika handled everyone of them like a pro. We could not have been happier with Erika and her work with us and our vendors. Her greatest asset was no more evident and very much on display, the day of our wedding. Wow... Erika was spot on from start to finish, keeping all those involved with our special day, on time and together. From getting my bride's hair and makeup finished (with photos!) and into the limo to the church ON TIME, to making sure all of our guests were enjoying the reception (photos of us at each table), and then keeping us on time leaving the reception and off to our life as husband and wife. Just a well done job all around. I would like to complement Erika on her beautiful decorations for the reception (tables, cake tables, etc,) and her expert management the guest seating chart (which is not and easy chore) .... Rosa and I were so impressed with Erika's work coordinating our wedding, we do plan to chose Cast Your Cares again with upcoming professional and special events (milestone birthdays and charity functions). Thanks again Erika! You are a dream to work with and you helped us truly enjoy our very special day! Rosa and Pete Mouwen
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!!
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!
Alanah was amazing to work with for my wedding. Prior to the day of the wedding, she was very professional and responsive while helping me coordinate all the logistics and details of the wedding, as well as open to all of the ideas that my husband and I had. She was extremely organized and it helped me tremendously to keep on track with planning. The week before the wedding, she was the one reaching out to the vendors to get times of when they would be on campus and coordinating with them any loose ends. The day before the wedding, she met with me to do a walk through of the venue and the layouts. We were able to get in more in depth about the different ideas for decorations and set up. She was also present at the rehearsal with the church and was the one to get people in order. The day of the wedding was ridiculous and insane. The church’s coordinator was very difficult to work with and there were a few mishaps, but Alanah took care all of the difficult situations. It went extremely smooth because of her and she did everything to make perfect for my husband and I. I am extremely grateful that I found Alanah and I’m not sure how my wedding would have went if it was not for her.
DJ Danny J was the DJ at our wedding. He was excellent! He played a variety of different music that incorporated oldies, goodies, and current hits! Everyone of all ages ans stages were able to get up, dance, and enjoy the music. Danny made a point to subtly check in with us (bride & groom) at appropriate times to see what we wanted to hear or do next - we really appreciated that because it helped us keep the wedding day unique to US!! DJ Danny also brought the photo booth which was such a hit. Finally, not only was DJ Danny J's music amazing, but he was a fabulous MC. He has a way of getting people captivated and involved. We love DJ Danny J!!
