Radish and Rose catered our January, 2018 wedding. Our reception venue (The Loft on Pine) only allowed specific catering companies, to which Radish and Rose was one of the six options. We contacted them a bit late in the process because we had heard that they were on the pricier side and were afraid that we would not be able to afford their higher costs. Alley, our Event Designer was great. She listened to our wants and needs, and was able to help us come up with a menu that was perfectly within our budget. We explained that we didn't want the traditional wedding fare (chicken, beef, or fish), instead we wanted something more casual. We opted for a slider and macaroni-and-cheese station with jarred salads. The food was incredible and we received a ton of compliments, especially on the taste of the macaroni and cheese and the quality of cooking for the sliders - they were delicious The serving staff was fabulous. As a bride, I was catered to all night. They had one of the two appetizers ready for us as we walked in the door of the reception venue. When we asked for the second, someone was back within 5 minutes with it. They took our order for our food stations and brought several plates so we could try all of what we ordered. They also brought fresh plates about half-way through the reception without asking since we were drawn away from the table and our food had gotten cold. One of our fabulous servers even brought me a cup of water as I danced on the dance floor. I would definitely book Radish and Rose again they made my planning easy.

Megan was our dual florist & coordinator for our wedding yesterday & she was simply outstanding! The bouquets & floral arrangements were gorgeous & she realized my vision flawlessly. As far as coordinating went, she was on point! She definitely knows her stuff & was a huge help & resource for me, suggesting ideas & making sure we had all our bases covered. There were certainly things she brought up that we hadn't even thought of or considered & that was really helpful, especially when planning a wedding with a million little details to cover. On the night, everything ran so smoothly, we were on time, & the night just went off without a hitch. Megan definitely knows what she is doing & you will be in good hands with her. We are both so happy with her services & absolutely recommend her to anyone in need of an outstanding florist or event coordinator!

Jessica and Dustin are AMAZING, hands down the best wedding planners we could have hired for our wedding and I honestly don’t know what I would have done without them. These two truly, truly love what they do, and the fact that they both went through planning their own wedding together speaks millions to their work chemistry. All of my friends, family, and other vendors who interacted with Jessica and Dustin had the same experience - they are wise, quick on their feet, detail oriented, and kind while still keeping everyone in line when needed. By the end of the night, we felt like Jessica was a part of our family. My biggest regret of the wedding was not hiring Jessica and Dustin earlier on in the planning. We hired 3LB as day of coordinators, but it is sooo worth having Jessica and Dustin around to help make decisions throughout the process. They are SO skilled at what they do, will take on any challenge you throw at them, and from the moment I spoke to Jessica, I knew I could trust her with everything. I am so beyond grateful to have found Jessica and Dustin, and am looking forward to the next family member to get married so I can work with them again!

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.

Annemarie was a phenomenal wedding planner and we could not be happier with the job she did. She was extremely organized, coordinated with all the vendors, and thought of all the details. She had great communication with us and also did a ton of stuff in the background to make sure the day went smoothly. We are so grateful that Annemarie was our wedding planner and highly recommend her!!

Joanne and her team were amazing to work with. They're a newer company and ready to go above and beyond to make your day happen. She was responsive and thorough, which made wedding planning less stressful and fun! She gave my husband and I a lot of options and were able to work with our budget without compromising the things we wanted. She connected me with a local florist and videographer. Their services exceeded my expectations and were great to work with as well. Joanne also arrived early on the day of my wedding to make sure the vendors were on track. It was a pleasure working with her team and I'd highly recommend their services.

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!!

Jennifer was amazing!!! We hired her as our day of coordinator for our wedding last month. The final month she worked with me to make sure I had all the details together, trouble shot problems, dealt with my vendors, and really got a full understanding of how I wanted my day to go. I could not have been happier with my choice to hire her. Bumps happen in planning and day of that you can’t control and I was so thankful to have her there for whatever I needed or couldn’t possibly do myself. She was punctual, amazing communicator, hard worker, and just plain bad add. I’m so grateful for her part in our best day!

Karen is amazing! Words can't adequately express my appreciation of this wonderful lady. She did so much to make our event a success and to relieve the stress related to hosting a wedding. We hired Karen to be our "coordinator for the day" for our daughter's wedding. Even though the wedding was small (about 60 guests) and in our home, we wanted someone to help so that WE could be guests ourselves and enjoy the wedding. I did quite a bit of research before choosing and I'm so glad that we chose Karen. She has an infectious smile that puts you at ease immediately. She is also extremely professional and knowledgeable. She asked a lot of questions so that she would have a better idea of what we were envisioning. She had great practical ideas that helped with the flow of the event. We felt like we were in really good hands. When Karen arrived on the day of the wedding, she absolutely blew me away! I gave her a quick tour of everything that was happening and she just took it from there. It was like she was family and had been there a million times. She stayed two steps ahead all night and really made the evening stress free. She has a very unique quality in that she can take charge and provide direction in the nicest most nonabrasive way. When she lets guests know that it's time to move out to the patio for cocktails, or that we're ready for a toast, grand entrance, cake cutting etc. everyone listens and no one feels like they are being "bossed around". When guests left, she did so much to help wrap things up that I actually had to tell her to stop. She's so thoughtful. She pays attention to the smallest details and she really listens. I know Karen has done hundreds of events from large and elaborate to small and intimate. No matter what kind of event your planning, Karen will make it better and she will make your life easier! Thank you Karen for allowing us to relax and truly enjoy Maegan and Danny's wedding! Warm regards, Shelly and Bob

Mikala is a gem. Calm, professional and managed to be everywhere at the same time! (Maybe she has a twin... haha) Seriously though, our wedding aboard the Queen Mary (big ship) would not have been the same without her.

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.

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!

    We live in Massachusetts but the wedding will be in California. I'd like a winery but options are open...There will a two part wedding, and indian party first then the actual wedding probably the next day. I'd like a late afternoon wedding (ie: 4-6pm). We're flying to cali beginning august for our engagement party so will be able to meet you then but other than that will probably have to communicate by phone/e-mail/web til I come home for December. We want a fun easy going wedding! :)
