Megan and her team go above and beyond to create a unique and personal experience for they clients. I have seen them in action on multiple occasions, and they do FAR MORE than just floral design. They are able to offer complete event coordination, wait staff, all sorts of goodies. They are prompt, courteous, efficient, and tireless in their efforts. They are unwavering in their commitment to excellence and work with a gracious, upbeat, and professional demeanor. As a business owner myself, I've worked with hundreds of planners and florists (never the two in one though!), and can honestly say I would hire Megan for my own events, IN A HEARTBEAT. Do not hesitate. If you found her, hire her! You're in INCREDIBLE hands!

Used Sierra Madre Catering for an office holiday party. Would definitely use them again and pricing was very reasonable. Everyone in the office was very happy with the food and they were able to accommodate several vegetarians and one vegan in our office.

Marie was my day-of coordinator for my outdoor wedding last Friday. Our ceremony was in the back yard lawn area of a lake house, and the reception was on the beach. Marie was amaazing!! Hiring her was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Her services started out with a phone consultation where my husband and I were able to ask questions about what her services include. After we hired her, I then met with her via Skype to discuss the details of our wedding while my husband was at work. The day before the wedding, she came to our venue for the dress rehearsal and ran us through the entire ceremony a couple times. Finally, where it mattered most, on the day of our wedding, Marie showed up with her assistants and connected with all of our vendors, set up all of the tables based on pictures I sent her, stayed in contact with my wedding party and family who helped with setup, checked in with my husband and I often, and kept us on schedule throughout the entire outdoor ceremony and reception! Marie also offered her assistance with any requests my husband or I had. She and her team did all this through the 40 mph winds that kept blowing everything off our tables! After reflecting on our big day and the weeks leading up to it, there's only one thing that I wish I would have done differently, which is to stay completely hidden before walking down the aisle. My flower girl and ring bearer took a bit longer to walk down, and my dad and I were standing visibly at the door ready to walk out for a couple minutes before we finally took our first step. I could have simply requested to stay hidden from Marie or hid myself until go time, however I thought of it too late and my husband already saw me. He still got emotional though so it worked out regardless! Other than that, everything was absolutely perfect!! Everything turned out so beautifully and the events were smooth sailing! Without a doubt, I would absolutely hire Marie again and again. I give her my highest level of recommendation, and I know every bride- and groom-to-be would be pleased with her services! :)

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.

BEST EVENT PLANNER, HANDS DOWN!!!! I hired Ingrid and her team last minute for decorations and event planning for a work party. By far, the best decision I've ever made. My wedding is in August, and I've went along and hired her for that event as well. She's proficient, efficient, and a visionary!! Her ideas are so thoughtful and personally organized! I am so impressed with her work and her expertise. She never ceased to amaze me. I got so many compliments on her flower arrangements and decorations that for so perfectly with the theme. I can't wait to see what she's got up her sleeve for my wedding in August. Also, this wasn't the first time I've hired Ingrid for an event. I hired her back in November 2015 for my MIL 50th birthday party. Her husband and herself, arrived much earlier for setup and made sure everything was the way we wanted it to look, before hey left the scene. They are so professional and such hard workers. I got a ton of compliments on their work that our family friend also hired her for her services for their wedding too! I will always refer Ingrid, without a doubt! She's my go-to person since Nov 2015.

Elias Events did an amazing job for my mother’s birthday party. Joelle planned everything for us, she provided an excellent service by giving us options, being punctual and working within our budget. Our event had about 100 people and she manage to keep everything under control with no mishaps. Joelle truly provides a luxury service. We can’t wait to work with her again!

At first I didn't think I needed a wedding planner, but when I hired Ester (Sister), I found out how many things where missing in my plans. I couldn't have done it without her. Everything went great, from start, to finish. I thank her for making my wedding the best experience ever. Five Stars all the way!!

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!!

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 don’t know where to start. Elizabeth, you have been absolutely amazing. My engagement party wouldn’t have happened without you. You are professional, energetic, and I had a blast working with you. From the very beginning of planning to the very end, you were always there with great advice. You understood my busy schedule and made the planning process super easy. I don't know how anyone plans any event without a coordinator. I was not stressed at all because I knew you had everything under control and every detail covered. Thank you for making my engagement party so amazing! I highly recommend Elizabeth as a coordinator. Thank you for everything!

I feel so incredibly lucky that I found Kelly through Thumbtack! From the beginning, she was easy to communicate with, responsive with emails and texts, and made my big day so much easier for me. She was very thorough, and when I thought I had all the details figured out, she would point something else out which didn't even cross my mind. She's a pro at what she does and does it with such grace despite the chaos of coordinating a wedding. Thank you so much for everything you did for me on my big day!!!!! You are absolutely incredible at what you do! :)

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!!

I have attempted to get in touch with Natasha Cabrera several days now, via email and phone. July 1 was last correspondence with her. She quoted a price of 210. for 4 hours July 21 in mid San Diego. She sent a contract via e-mail and I included my credit card no and answered all requested questions. Now, with just two weeks until the party, I can't wait any longer and will need to book someone else. I am surprised with this, as Natasha had high energy and excitement about the party.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
