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.

I hired the queen Elsa entertainment for my daughters 8th birthday party of frozen and the party was a hit. The kids loved the face painting while she sang songs ,they enjoyed the magic show and balloon animals. She was great and on time!! I would definitely recommend to anyone for there event/party. Going to other people's party who had entertainment similar she by far the was best and was worth it the money I paid😁 would definitely recommend 👍🏻

Michelle catered my sister's Sweet 16th birthday party last Saturday with a pasta bar (fettucini alfredo, Meat-lover's Lasagna, garlic bread, and salad), and did an amazing job. This is not an exaggeration! The food was beyond our expectations. The taste of the food was better than any Italian restaurant I've been to. Everything was fresh, homemade, and delicious. The quantity of food we ordered was for 50 people, and ended up feeding over 65 (and we had leftovers, although not for long). Michelle was professional, friendly, courteous, and delivered prompt service. Her prices were more than fair. I'm looking forward to the day she opens her own restaurant. I seriously cannot think of anything she could have done better. We will definitely be booking her again in the future! Thanks One Hot Dish!!

Marie Stark was an absolute life saver at my wedding. To put things bluntly, I had a very difficult wedding party to work with and she was nothing but patient with them. Not only that, but she managed to turn my wedding dream into a reality. The entire process of working with Marie was incredibly calming which was refreshing considering how stressful wedding planning can be. I could not be happier with Marie as my wedding coordinator. She managed everything that I couldn’t on my wedding day and I am truly grateful for all of her efforts. I highly recommend her!

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.

It was a great pleasure planning our wedding with Rolanda. She kept us on track and helped us look like expert wedding planners to our family and friends. Several people commented on how seamlessly everything seemed to flow throughout the wedding and reception, and her planning and flexibility played a big role in making that happen. We are enormously grateful for all Rolanda did to help make this one of the most memorable, inspiring, and beautiful days of our lives. ROLANDA IS AWESOME AND WE ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND HER. Here are a few specifics we appreciated most: - Enthusiastic-- She seemed genuinely excited about our wedding and was eager to help us. We really appreciated Rolanda’s positive energy. - Experienced-- Not having planned a wedding before, it was a relief to lean on Rolanda’s experience. - Generous-- We felt she went beyond the call of duty relative to the money we paid. Rolanda shared some of her own supplies, bought lights to decorate the boathouse railing, and met, talked, and texted with us multiple times before our wedding day. - Flexible-- We really appreciated being able to go "off script" to take extra time to connect with our guests during the reception. Rolanda adjusted on the fly and made us feel comfortable to relax and enjoy the celebration. - Dedicated-- She truly cared about making it a beautiful wedding, and her dedication showed in every little detail she took care of, everything she did surpassed our expectations! - Proactive-- She got me to rent my tux the first day we met, and Rolanda continued to keep us on track in the weeks leading up to the wedding. - Reliable-- She quickly responded to our texts, emails, and phone calls. - Thorough-- She helped us see all the nitty-gritty details that are necessary to have a smooth event.

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.

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 wasn’t 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!

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!!

Courtney was amazing! I tried throwing my wife's baby shower on my own and with 2 weeks left realized i was in way out of my head. I got in contact with courtney and she was able to interpret every idea i had, make sure everything i hadn't thought of was taken care of and then set up, attended, and cleaned up the entire party. even our guests commented on how awesome she was. we cannot thank her enough!

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.

Meghan helped me throw my best friend an amazing 30th birthday! She helped me identify a theme, decorated beautifully, took care of the food, and made the experience really fun for me. She made me feel comfortable from start to finish and helped me come up with awesome ideas I never would have thought of.

We hired Kristina as a day-of coordinator for our wedding - and WOW are we so glad that we did. She is awesome, very detail oriented, and bent over backwards to ensure our wedding went off without a hitch!! She contacted us ahead of time in order to ensure she knew exactly what we wanted on our wedding day and how she could best help us out. She did everything from picking up wine, event set-up/take-down, and vendor coordination to ensure that our day went extremely smoothly and as planned. She knew our plan so well that she never even came up to us during the event to ask a question - she just worked behind the scenes to enable us to enjoy every minute of our big day. It was amazing, she's the best and makes wedding day stress-free. Would highly recommend her to anyone as a wedding coordinator/planner and would hire her again in a second! You don't need to look anywhere else!

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
