Awesome work. I can’t wait until my next event.
I first met Andrea through our local charity running community. Since then, I have attended several events coordinated by Andrea and Events By Abel. She quickly become the unofficial social coordinator for our running group! From spectacularly detailed holiday parties to intimate progressive dinners to weddings for 100+ people, she has had her hand in countless events and special moments that I think back on and smile. That's exactly what you want when you hire someone to plan or coordinate an event for you. To take the stress out of the day and add extra details that you didn't realize would make the event that much more special. Events By Abel is the perfect choice if you are looking for someone to provide that at your next event. I would definitely recommend hiring Andrea for your next special event!
Shannon was great! My company hired her for a community Halloween event for children and we were blown away by her talent. She was able to paint every kid's face that wanted a face painting and did an outstanding job! I have not seen better face painting.
Sam was our DJ for our wedding in August 2017. We'd gone through dozens of potential DJs until we got a hold of Sam. Right from the start, Sam focused on getting to know our background, personalities, and style first, in order to really understand how he could make our event the best event possible. When it came to the music and the party, we were very comfortable handing the emcee duties to Sam. Every detail was mapped out on paper well beforehand, including all the intro/outro, and first dance songs. On the wedding day, Sam arrived impeccably dressed, with plenty of time to set up. Our wedding went without a hitch, and Sam was a large part of that success keeping everyone hyped the whole night. With a firm grasp of our personalities and musical styles, he played a seamless mix of hits that had everyone on the dance floor. He even helped us throw light sticks into the crowd (see photo,) and jumped off the stage at one point to lead a dance. Nearly a year later, many people have told us that our wedding was the best they'd ever attended, and still rave about how much fun they had. They'll usually also have a memory of DJ Sam, that he looked like he was having just as much fun in the DJ booth as everyone else. If you're thinking about booking Sam for your event, DO IT! Thanks Sam!
Here are some highlights that stuck out: gave advice about all kinds of things leading up to the big day- rehearsal dinner location, invitations, wedding games; really listened to what we like & tailored her suggestions accordingly; was patient with us when we were indecisive; gave us a lot of guidance during the rehearsal; stayed all the way through the end of the night and packed up our parents' cars. One of her major "deliverables" is an awesomely detailed schedule of events! This was a huge asset for us. She was also extremely attentive & helpful! She was direct but not bossy- exactly what we were hoping for. I would definitely recommend her to any brides who need some guidance!
Chef Marckende was amazing! He came up with an incredibly creative menu (all vegan/vegetarian) with dumplings, potstickers, ramen, and an amazing chocolate, strawberry, blueberry layer cake. He was very responsive in the planning process, even coordinating the on-site setup/visit the night before because we were celebrating a birthday with a group of friends at an AirBnb. Couldn't have imagined a better dining experience for celebrating a birthday with the group of 11. He was very professional, came with all of the necessary supplies, took care of service and clean-up. If you're looking to choose a chef for an event, you're missing out if you don't choose Chef Marckende. He'll create a memorable meal and take care of all the details so you don't have to even think about doing anything else other than enjoying a great meal with great company.
Vanessa was an absolute pleasure to work with! I hired her to help me coordinator everything leading up to our wedding day. Her attention to detail was phenomenal and served as a wonderful second pair of eyes in reading over all the contracts from vendors! I couldn't believe how many details and questions there was but she was there to answer and ask all of them. It was really great that once the wedding date was approaching she started answering emails from my vendors because she already had the answers which saved us a great time of time! She really knew her way about event planning and it was so comfortable for me to talk to her about changes or thoughts and she is very flexible with direction if you change your mind. Vanessa responds when she sees your email and will let you know if she saw your email but didn't have time to answer. I loved how well she communicated with me. She texts right away and she is very thorough with her email responses. She is adaptable in learning how to efficiently use technology to her advantage. I opted to use GoogleDrive to share documents back and forth. Until she met me, she didn't know how to use and now she is an expert! I cannot imagine not having this wedding without all of Vanessa's hard work! She deserves all the credit.
We had an unforgettable experience with Elizabeth. She planed a baby shower for us and it was just amazing. Our guests were so happy. Thank you for making this day so special ! We would definitely recommend Elizabeth if you are going to plan an event.
Literally so good. We have another event coming up in 5 months and will be referring business their way. I love the opportunity to do so! Next time it’ll be much easier! Also we loved their event staff!
My bestfriend lives in Texas and I live in LA and she needed me to help plan her wedding. When I brought in Alexis, everything went so much smoother and the stress was taken away from me! Well organized, sweet, ON TIME... so many great words come to mind to describe this service. She even brought complementary water to the outside wedding, it was great.
Our son's wedding was beautiful and stress free because of Michele at Nation Event Design. The first anniversary of my son and his wife is coming up and we're still getting great feedback of how nice his wedding was on the sunny beach of San Diego! Thank you Nation Event Design! I absolutely recommend them for wedding planning!
Glennie and her team was Everything I had hoped for and more! They were so helpful throughout the entire process, went above and beyond, and we’re so detail oriented and amazing. I really did not have to plan my wedding because they had it all planned for me. I just had a vision, I told him what I wanted, and they made it happen. I would highly recommend Glennie and her team To everyone I know. My wedding of 450 gas and having it on today’s was so fun and exciting. If I were to have it again in 10 years, I would definitely rebook with her.
The best event pkanner! Has all the hook ups and will help you from start to finish! Totally recommending Kimmie!!!
Better than I expected!! She really put her best foot forward and provided us with a more than we could ask for. Thank you for making the engagement party so special
We had Portero Concierge handle our 50 wedding anniversary party. Everything went off without a hitch. The setting and the attention to detail was superb. Marni was as excited as we were about our party. We highly recommend Portero for all of your event needs big or small. Even day to day activities that you just don’t have time for.
I hired San Diego Events to throw a Christmas Party for 30 people. I was astounded at how professional, organized and thoughtful they were. They listened to everything that I wanted to have and made sure that it was all attended to. They stayed within the budget that we created together and made me feel like a part of the team. (even though I did not do a thing lol) It is all about the details with San Diego Events and I feel like it was the details that they attended to that made the party such a success! I can not wait for them to make me look good again.
