Dj Charlie was great! We didn't have a planner and he pretty much ran the show. I would recommend him for any event or would book him again for any party I may be throwing in the future. Thanks again Dj Charlie.

Extremely professional, very easy to work with and coordinate things throughout the event. I would absolutely recommend Eddy and his staff.

Professional, experienced, and very competent. What you expect, what you need, and what you deserve for your wedding or event. In our initial consultation with 3 Little Birds Event Planning we described what we were thinking and our budget, and not to mention our compressed timeline. 3 Little Birds Event Planning was upfront about the challenges of the timeline, but expressed confidence that it could be done. Venue and vendor options were presented to meet our budget as well as options and ideas that were outside our budget should we want to incorporate additional things. Planning any project and event takes a very organized, detail oriented, experienced and well connected planner/company. But when it comes to a wedding, you only have one chance, there are no do overs, and you need someone who will make everything happen. Jessica Smith (3 Little Birds Event Planning) is all of the above and more. They can handle all of the business aspects (contracts, vendors, schedules, timelines, permits, etch, etc), but she also has an artistic eye and design style that provided such amazing ideas and direction to enhance and implement our theme. Trust me the small details that you may not think about make a HUGE difference. With my work schedule so hectic it was impossible for me get decorations or run around doing errands. Having a full service planner was not only helpful it was necessary. The money I would have lost from missed work, by far covered the difference between a day of event planner and full service planner. My recommendation is to go with the full service planner... it gives you the opportunity to have your event and vision grow organically as you meet and continually consult with your planner... not to mention the time and headaches your save yourself, trust me you will thank yourself for it. 3 Little Birds Event Planning is established and has many vendor connections (Florists, DJ, Photographers, Catering, Venues, Decorations, etc., etc.). What I really like is the fact that 3 Little Birds/Jessica Smith doesn’t force or pressure you to use her vendors. We vetted her vendors and chose to go with some of them, and some we didn't. All the vendors she recommended are professional and established and we were very pleased with the vendors she recommended. The vendors we didn’t use were not because of anything deficient, but rather because we had existing industry contacts and already knew great photographers and videographers. 3 Little Birds worked with the vendors they provided as well as the one we selected independently and brought everything together seamlessly. On the big day, things could not have gone any smoother. I was impressed, as were all of the guests. I was able to be present in the moment and truly enjoy our special day. All I can say is thank you, it was a true storybook/fairytale wedding.

Mark is a fabulous chef, event planner and host. His Pacific Rim influenced cuisine is beyond belief. Every time we've hired Mark to cater events/parties my guests ask for some of their favorites, including his coconut shrimp and his ahi tuna tartare. My family even requested him to cater a special Christmas dinner - a delicious memory as always with Mark Kearney. Whether an intimate dinner party or grand event - Mark's the best choice!

I decided to look for a caterer for my Mom's celebration of life and my internet search lead me to Thumbtack. After inputting my needs I quickly received a response back from Tonya at Sierra Madre Catering with a detailed quote and attached menu. When I called to speak with Tonya I immediately got a good vibe from her voice. She seemed excited and eager to help plan our event and made me feel comfortable that everything would be taken care of. I am so thankful I decided to use Sierra Madre for my event. We ordered appetizers and desserts and they arrived and set everything up, brought their own trash cans and kept the tables clean as people were done eating. The staff was professional and nice and their food was DELICIOUS! Many of our guests gave feedback that the food was great and they even ran out of business cards because a lot of people were interested in having their info. At such a difficult time with the passing of a loved one, these details are important but not ones you want to worry about yourselves and Tonya and Sierra Madre staff took that burden off my shoulders and I am so thankful for that. I will recommend them to anyone in need of a caterer for any event and if I could give more than 5 stars I most definitely would!! Thank you Tonya and Sierra Madre Catering!!

Chef Travis was wonderful to work with ahead of our arrival in Vegas, flexible in our conversations, and went out of his way to meet with our event site's owner before I arrived in Vegas, as well as providing a link to a pastry chef, app servers, and a bartender who did a fantastic job for the event. On event day, Travis brought great assistants, and was friendly and gracious with all of our guests. On event day, the menu and the schedule were slightly different from what we had discussed, but overall, he definitely did a wonderful job including clean up, and I would solidly recommend him for other events. Thank you Travis! Great dinner and great job!

We hired KMR Gourmet for our Go Red Por Tu Corazon event this past year. Kenia and her team went above and beyond for our organization and helped make the event amazing. They were very organized and detailed with their work. The food presentation was beautiful and they plated 300 meals really good. Our guest were blown away by the appearance of the food and the staff was very nice. Also, the food was delicious, fresh, and the dessert was big hit among our guests. We had a lot of last minute changes and crazy weather the day before and day of the event but KMR Gourmet still did amazing and ensured our event went smoothly. Overall, we were very happy with our experience with KMR Gourmet and would 100% give our recommendation.

Ricki negotiated her price once we discussed I was only doing a reception and not a wedding ceremony. I didn't give her much time to plan the event, but she showed us multiple venues and we were very happy with our selection. Ricki also did her best to help us stay on budget, she found flowers for an amazing deal, she brought decorations from her house, and she with the sudden weather change she got sun umbrellas in the nick-of-time. She really worked her tail off! It was a great reception, exactly what my husband and I wanted.

My event isn't until May of this year, but I was very happy with how quick she replied and how professional she is. I have full faith that she will assist me in every possible way on the day of my wedding.

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 was able to concentrate on other things while lexilou events took care of the decorations. They painted and assembled all my centerpieces for the baby shower and coordinated the event the day of.

The Perfectly Event Planning Team was wonderful - I'm a highly organized woman, and didn't think I would need any help for the day of my wedding. However, Jessell offered her services and I'm so happy we hired her. I was able to enjoy our wedding and the entire day and just let Jessell worry about the nitty gritty and the payments and the time-line and getting my husband to where he needed to be! We couldn't have done it without her and don't know that we would have wanted to! I highly recommend Perfectly Event Planning to anyone who needs a little order to their event.

John/Perry is our go to event planner. They have produced numerous parties for us over the past few years. Mainly for personal dinner and holiday parties. A Hawaiian themed holiday party was easily set-up with tables and floral linens, Mai Tai drink machine, Sushi station with our own sushi chef, and amazing lighting turned our backyard patio into Waikiki. John & Aurelio were always responsive, had all deliveries on time. The Event Checklist they use and the Day Of Production Agenda shows you are working with a top-notch event agency, not a solo event planner. And their pricing always competes with the solo planner. We have mixed emotions about them being on Thumbtack. We don't want others to discover them!!

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!

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.

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 was a lucky recipient of a Bella B Event! Kelly really matched the event to my personality and taste. She has a warm and caring personality and you will feel like you have known her for years. She was very creative and everywhere you turned there was another special surprise. Everything was seamless and she made everything seem effortless. I look forward to my next Bella B Event!
