Let me tell everyone that our wedding isn't till May of 2015. I wanted to give an early first review based on Carlos' consultation . We met with Carlos and he was able to clearly articulate his services and level of expertise about the DJ industry . Not only that, but we are trying to plan a wedding , he made us feel confident that with his services , our ceremony/reception will run smoothly . He's very detailed, passionate , organized and we know with 100 percent confidence that we made the right decision in hiring him. So for those who are trying to make the important decision of who to hire for your wedding or event , stop here and hire DJ Charlie aka Carlos Gutierrez. I look fwd to our wedding .
I found 3 Little Birds on Thumbtack and instantly fell in love with the way Jessica and Dustin communicated and worked with me and my fiancé! We hired them as day of wedding planners and got an initial meet &a greet, timeline meeting, wedding rehearsal and the day of. Here's what makes them 5 stars. Dustin is an absolute gem and has the creative view to help pull the wedding day together. He used bridesmaid bouquets as extra decor, reused ceremony flowers for the reception and helped with every detail including me asking him to move some things around when they didn't look exactly how I pictured them. He checked in throughout the night and was amazing! Jessica is everything you could ever want in a wedding planner and she is absolutely wonderful. Organized. Thorough. Great communication. But honestly the entire wedding day and night she kept asking me and my husband if needed anything. She bustled my dress for me, brought us appetizers and drinks and honestly made me feel like a princess. I had no worries the entire night! I highly recommend you have them stay to help clean up, it was a god send. Thank you Jessica and Dustin!!
After a caterer canceled ten days before my bride's wedding, the Mark Kearney Group reached out to me with their services. The menu they proposed reflected my client's palette perfectly: serving a light breakfast, BBQ lunch, wild caught raw bar for cocktail hour, and braised short rib for dinner - everything tasted impeccable. Prior to the day, Mark and his team were responsive to changes in the menu and food count. Likewise, the level of professionalism left me (the wedding planner) at ease - I felt very confident that Mark was going to produced great work, and my instincts were well-founded. On site, Mark went above and beyond to perform. The limited space and lack of air conditioning in the kitchen did not affect his care for each dish that was sent out. Furthermore, the team members he brought were kind and helpful. I can not imagine how the day would have gone without Mark's services. I only hope we work together soon!
I hired Chef Travis to help make my 39th wedding anniversary special. The food was expertly and creatively prepared. His personable demeanor made everything even more enjoyable. His ability to layer flavors was totally on the mark. My wife and I eat out often and I would be pressed to find another restaurant that could put together a meal like this. Highly recommend and will use him again.
Marie was AMAZING as my day-of-coordinator at my wedding. I planned my wedding myself so I had been the point person for everything but she took the reins seamlessly on the day of so I could step back and enjoy the day. She's extremely knowledgeable regarding wedding etiquette and procedures and was indispensable to us.
There are not enough words to thank Ricki! She came in and saved our day. We knew we needed a local wedding planner because we live out of state and arrived in California just two days before our wedding. Ricki had everything all planned and ready to go down to the last detail. She has a way of working with people as the neutral third party to make everything go smoothly so all venders are working together in a most congenial way. She worked with us, giving us the fairy tale wedding we imagined. On the day-of, she assisted with making sure everything was set up as we envisioned for this most special venue. I would highly recommend Ricki for the most accurate and attentive service. There is no way we could have done it without her!
Crystal was our event coordinator for our wedding this past May. From the moment my husband and I met her, we knew that she was a perfect fit for us. She is so sweet, and always on top of things. She did an amazing job helping us with developing wedding time line, decor, vendors, and so much more! We were both really impressed by how easy it was to get a hold of her for any questions we had, and how prompt she would reply to calls/emails :) The day of the wedding, she tackled a few bumps on the road such as my seating chart mix up (oops)!, missing cupcakes, wedding dress bustle in such a quick professional manner. I can't thank her enough for the piece of mind that I had on my wedding day knowing she was there. I will definitely be giving Crystal a call for all my future events!!
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.
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.
We are so glad that we chose Haus 353 for our flowers and wedding coordination!! Our wedding would not have been as beautiful or as successful without them. Ione and her team are on another level. Very professional, very punctual, very friendly, and so flexible and creative! When something went wrong they were able to come up with a solution. From the very first meeting to the end of the wedding night Ione and her team communicated with us so well and were so on top of it. She also did a great job of calming this perfectionist bride down as the day got closer and closer and made sure our wedding day went smoothly! You can't go wrong with Haus 353, do yourself a favor and hit them up ASAP!
Very professional and talented. Put together a beautiful and we'll designed wedding even on a fixed budget.
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 wasnt 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!
Weddings are stupid and stressful but these guys were freaking amazing. They went so far above and beyond to make mine and Brians wedding day everything we dreamed of. No matter what I was thinking she was there. No matter when I texted or called she responded. Seriously the best choice ever.
Where to begin! Ruby was a savior during my wedding events and was able to offload so much of my stress and attend to all last minute details I was unable to do myself due to time constraints. I was able to trust and rely on her 100% and she did not let me down she knew exactly what I wanted and needed. Ruby made detailed timelines and checklists for all my events. She helped me plan and execute my wedding ceremony and it was perfect. She was able to offer me affordable vendors for photography, wedding dessert table that had a beautiful fruit and fondu, icecream popsicles/kulfi with customized labels passed out during our wedding that my guest raved about how delicious they were till today, decor for my wedding ceremony, and she was able to offer me multiple options for makeup and hair vendors for my wedding party. Overall ruby was amazing her attention to detail and her genuine kindness and sincerity was what made her so great at what she does. She went above and beyond for me and my events. She was my go to person for all my questions and was able to keep me calm and organized winding down to the events. I definitely recommend to booking her asap for all of your upcoming events. She does it all!
My name is Lynette Vanderhorst President of "Single Mothers with Cancer ". Ms. Griffin has been my event planner for the past 2 years. She first came aboard to plan my Introduction Dinner party. She did an amazing job. She has a special way of capturing your moment with a elegant edge. Every event she planned for me I was impressed. Ms.Griffin is an great asset to my company. I can leave everything up to her and she makes every experience unforgettable.
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!!
Kelly day-of coordinate our eclectic Joshua Tree wedding weekend. We had around 150 guest and she was amazing at coordinating not only wedding vendors, but also working with the guests who volunteered to help. I'm astounded at her professionalism and ability to keep cool. A great wedding coordinator not only know the nuts and bolts, but also knows how to navigate and ease the way on the emotional front. Kelly did an amazing job with both. We met with Kelly a few times before the day, and she was great at asking the right questions and ensuring that we were on the right path. Highly recommend! Thank you Kelly!
I can not say enough great things about Jessica. If you are planning to get a wedding coordinator get Jessica, my only regret was not having her plan the whole thing and not getting her sooner. My fiancé (now husband) initially refused to even consider getting a coordinator. He reluctantly went with me to interview Jessica and even gave me a pep talk about how we were "just going to talk to her" and not commit to anything. Truthfully I think he was humoring me but had not intention of getting someone because he saw it as paying for someone who wouldn't know us and do things we could do ourselves. (Which trust me you can't ... well you can but you will drive yourself nuts.) So of course we met her and loved her and it was him (not me) who decided to hire her on the spot. We had lots of changes (up until the last minute) and we did a lot of untraditional things so we know we drove her nuts but she always made it happen for us. She recommended our cinematographer who was awesome. She is bright and bubbly but is all business when it comes getting things don't right. We love Jessica and we consider her a friend were so happy we got her and appreciate all the hard work she put into making our day memorable. She took great care of us. It's only sad that Im only planning to have this one wedding or I would definite hire her again and again. Hopefully one day we can be rich enough to throw great big parties and have Jessica coordinate them all. :) Thank you Jessica! We'll be sending you a postcard from our honeymoon.
Mikayla did an amazing job at our wedding from the ceremony to the reception and all the in between. She really listens to your needs and works with you throughout the process.
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 liked Kelly so much for our wedding, we hired her for all of our other events too! She handled the whole weekend, 3 different events, with calm professionalism, style, poise, and good humor. By the end she felt like one of the family, and our guests hugged her goodbye. We will be recommending her to everyone for any event and we will definitely be engaging her again!
