Let me tell everyone that our wedding isn't till May of 2015. I wanted to give an early first review based on Carlos' consultation . We met with Carlos and he was able to clearly articulate his services and level of expertise about the DJ industry . Not only that, but we are trying to plan a wedding , he made us feel confident that with his services , our ceremony/reception will run smoothly . He's very detailed, passionate , organized and we know with 100 percent confidence that we made the right decision in hiring him. So for those who are trying to make the important decision of who to hire for your wedding or event , stop here and hire DJ Charlie aka Carlos Gutierrez. I look fwd to our wedding .
Our experience with Gourmet Your Way was excellent. From the food tasting, to the requests, coordination and wedding event, everything was great. Michael was very nice, easy to work with, punctional and professional. We had very unique requests for our wedding and he was willing to work with us and accommodate us. We asked for mostaciolli with sausage, parmesan crusted fish, salad, bruschetta and meatballs. Michael provided us with a food tasting, which we loved. The food was great. On top of that, we asked if he could help setup and serve filipino food that was being delivered. He was happy to accommodate us. The day of the event, Michael and his team arrived with plenty of time to set up and prepare. They required very little direction from us, which allowed us to focus on the main event. Everyone at the wedding loved the food. It was a great success!
Eddy and his team were wonderful to work with. He was quick to provide me with quotes for two events for my wedding weekend. Eddy was wonderful and it was no surprise that his staff was exactly the same way. Very impressed with their service. I will be using them again in the future.
Mrs. B was the event manager for our wedding day and leading up to. She went above our expectations and handles more than she was contracted to do. She and her staff was well worth it for the wedding day.
I found 3 Little Birds on Thumbtack and instantly fell in love with the way Jessica and Dustin communicated and worked with me and my fiancé! We hired them as day of wedding planners and got an initial meet &a greet, timeline meeting, wedding rehearsal and the day of. Here's what makes them 5 stars. Dustin is an absolute gem and has the creative view to help pull the wedding day together. He used bridesmaid bouquets as extra decor, reused ceremony flowers for the reception and helped with every detail including me asking him to move some things around when they didn't look exactly how I pictured them. He checked in throughout the night and was amazing! Jessica is everything you could ever want in a wedding planner and she is absolutely wonderful. Organized. Thorough. Great communication. But honestly the entire wedding day and night she kept asking me and my husband if needed anything. She bustled my dress for me, brought us appetizers and drinks and honestly made me feel like a princess. I had no worries the entire night! I highly recommend you have them stay to help clean up, it was a god send. Thank you Jessica and Dustin!!
After a caterer canceled ten days before my bride's wedding, the Mark Kearney Group reached out to me with their services. The menu they proposed reflected my client's palette perfectly: serving a light breakfast, BBQ lunch, wild caught raw bar for cocktail hour, and braised short rib for dinner - everything tasted impeccable. Prior to the day, Mark and his team were responsive to changes in the menu and food count. Likewise, the level of professionalism left me (the wedding planner) at ease - I felt very confident that Mark was going to produced great work, and my instincts were well-founded. On site, Mark went above and beyond to perform. The limited space and lack of air conditioning in the kitchen did not affect his care for each dish that was sent out. Furthermore, the team members he brought were kind and helpful. I can not imagine how the day would have gone without Mark's services. I only hope we work together soon!
I hired Chef Travis to help make my 39th wedding anniversary special. The food was expertly and creatively prepared. His personable demeanor made everything even more enjoyable. His ability to layer flavors was totally on the mark. My wife and I eat out often and I would be pressed to find another restaurant that could put together a meal like this. Highly recommend and will use him again.
There are not enough words to thank Ricki! She came in and saved our day. We knew we needed a local wedding planner because we live out of state and arrived in California just two days before our wedding. Ricki had everything all planned and ready to go down to the last detail. She has a way of working with people as the neutral third party to make everything go smoothly so all venders are working together in a most congenial way. She worked with us, giving us the fairy tale wedding we imagined. On the day-of, she assisted with making sure everything was set up as we envisioned for this most special venue. I would highly recommend Ricki for the most accurate and attentive service. There is no way we could have done it without her!
Crystal was our event coordinator for our wedding this past May. From the moment my husband and I met her, we knew that she was a perfect fit for us. She is so sweet, and always on top of things. She did an amazing job helping us with developing wedding time line, decor, vendors, and so much more! We were both really impressed by how easy it was to get a hold of her for any questions we had, and how prompt she would reply to calls/emails :) The day of the wedding, she tackled a few bumps on the road such as my seating chart mix up (oops)!, missing cupcakes, wedding dress bustle in such a quick professional manner. I can't thank her enough for the piece of mind that I had on my wedding day knowing she was there. I will definitely be giving Crystal a call for all my future events!!
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.
Nikki’s a great bartender. She was able to turn around cocktails fast to guests. She’s quick at responding to you via email and she made it easy to pay her (by providing PayPal as an option for the deposit). The guests loved how we had someone shake them up drinks, and it was a relief we didn’t have to make them ourselves. I’m happy Nikki was available and provided us with excellent and friendly service!
I booked Annemarie for my wedding planning services and I am so thrilled I did! I knew I needed the help and I could have NEVER have done it without her! She was so organized, insanely helpful to my family and I, fun, and such a pleasure to work with. Besides keeping me on a schedule and making sure I was having fun instead of stressing on what I needed to do next , she would approach me and let me know it was time. She made all the steps to our wedding flow flawlessly (food service, toast, dance, photos, dessert, bouquet toss). If it wasnt for her I would have been delegating and stressing my own husband and wedding party to make sure everyone else had fun. Instead I got to actually enjoy everything and have fun myself ! Priceless! She even talked me out of crying as I was about to walk down the aisle, which was a major goal of mine! AMAZING! She listened to my opinions and desires and offered advice when I needed and asked for it. She made sure I ate, which is impossible to do at your wedding. She kept everything like clockwork and with so much care and communication. I am so grateful for this woman! You are in good hands!
Very professional and talented. Put together a beautiful and we'll designed wedding even on a fixed budget.
There aren’t enough good things to say about Ishita. We hired Ishita as a “day-of-coordinator” for two of my wedding events and I could not be more glad. She is outstanding an exceeded her “day-of” duties exponentially. She participated in most of my vendor consultations, provided suggestions and advice that I would have never considered, and was an all-star on both the days. Her timeline was on spot- Not only did she create a timeline for both of my events, she even created a timeline for my third event as well, which we didn’t hire her for (I wish we had). She even created a ‘Guest Timeline’ for our guests who were visiting from out of state/country which put in the welcome gift basket. She stayed in constant communication via phone, text, and email. Best of all, on the wedding day everything was flawless and ran smoothly. I can't keep track of all the compliments we got about the wedding flowing so well. Ishita is very easy and great to work with, so friendly, so sweet and calm and very professional. She always stepped in during my bridezilla moments to calm me down. Here are a few examples of what Ishita accomplished for me: 1. She took all of our favors, gifts, table numbers, table name cards, etc. and ensured they were all setup before the event started. 2. She collected all of our gifts and other belongings and gave them to a family member. 3. She made sure our families ate and had a good time. 4. On the reception day, my husband and I didn’t get a chance to eat, she made sure she packed us some food to go. Who does that?? 5. She made sure we took pictures with all our families who were visiting from out state/county 6. She helped our decorator to insure everything was setup before the event were to start. 7. She and her husband (who is great as well) helped my sister with a skit/dance. I cannot recommend her enough! I feel so blessed to have met her. Not only is she a great event planner, she has become a great friend!
Christine was our day of wedding planner although she spent several months leading up to our wedding day meeting with us in person and answering our emails. At first we considered not going with a planner at all to save money but with almost 200 guests, including children, it was one of the best decisions we made. Christine was knowledgeable, organized, considerate, and listened to our requests without pushing her own vision on us. She made us feel so at ease during our rehearsal and completely stress-free the day of, handling all of the details, coordinating with vendors, and keeping us plus our families on time throughout the day. Thanks to Christine, our wedding turned out even better than we could have imagined.
Where to begin! Ruby was a savior during my wedding events and was able to offload so much of my stress and attend to all last minute details I was unable to do myself due to time constraints. I was able to trust and rely on her 100% and she did not let me down she knew exactly what I wanted and needed. Ruby made detailed timelines and checklists for all my events. She helped me plan and execute my wedding ceremony and it was perfect. She was able to offer me affordable vendors for photography, wedding dessert table that had a beautiful fruit and fondu, icecream popsicles/kulfi with customized labels passed out during our wedding that my guest raved about how delicious they were till today, decor for my wedding ceremony, and she was able to offer me multiple options for makeup and hair vendors for my wedding party. Overall ruby was amazing her attention to detail and her genuine kindness and sincerity was what made her so great at what she does. She went above and beyond for me and my events. She was my go to person for all my questions and was able to keep me calm and organized winding down to the events. I definitely recommend to booking her asap for all of your upcoming events. She does it all!
Karen is true to her company's name- a DREAM! It was such a joy to work with her, and having her calming presence around one of the most potentially stressful situations was a Godsend! We had a very unconventional ceremony and reception location, and she had incredible ideas that really saved the day- She organized and wrangled a complicated venue, all the while being so positive and calm. She is patient, structured, thorough, and just such a joy to be around! You can tell that she's seen it all, because nothing rattled her, and she had inventive solutions for every single hurdle we had: event flow, ceremony planning, venue snafus! We are so grateful and blessed to have this attentive, experienced planner coordinate our wedding, and you will be, too!!
She was great to work with ! She truly made my wedding amazing !
I can not say enough great things about Jessica. If you are planning to get a wedding coordinator get Jessica, my only regret was not having her plan the whole thing and not getting her sooner. My fiancé (now husband) initially refused to even consider getting a coordinator. He reluctantly went with me to interview Jessica and even gave me a pep talk about how we were "just going to talk to her" and not commit to anything. Truthfully I think he was humoring me but had not intention of getting someone because he saw it as paying for someone who wouldn't know us and do things we could do ourselves. (Which trust me you can't ... well you can but you will drive yourself nuts.) So of course we met her and loved her and it was him (not me) who decided to hire her on the spot. We had lots of changes (up until the last minute) and we did a lot of untraditional things so we know we drove her nuts but she always made it happen for us. She recommended our cinematographer who was awesome. She is bright and bubbly but is all business when it comes getting things don't right. We love Jessica and we consider her a friend were so happy we got her and appreciate all the hard work she put into making our day memorable. She took great care of us. It's only sad that Im only planning to have this one wedding or I would definite hire her again and again. Hopefully one day we can be rich enough to throw great big parties and have Jessica coordinate them all. :) Thank you Jessica! We'll be sending you a postcard from our honeymoon.
Mikayla did an amazing job at our wedding from the ceremony to the reception and all the in between. She really listens to your needs and works with you throughout the process.
Natalie provided us with an unforgettable experience for our farm wedding last fall. She is organized, professional, FUN, and was life-saving for getting everything together for our special day so we didn't have to worry about a THING. She went above and beyond for everything, I dont know how we could have done it with out her! I would highly recommend OOBE events if you are looking to have a seamless and stress-free experience in the hands of an expert.
