Reverend Saundra was the BEST! She was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was very personable and easy to talk to. She made us feel comfortable and put us at ease. Planning a wedding is not an easy task but Rev mad it fun and made sure everything was covered! When my husband I and met her for the first time we instantly knew that she was the one that we wanted to marry us. She has a kind heart and positive spirit. She made sure that we did not forget anything on our BIG DAY! She called and texted to remind me of things that I would have otherwise forgotten. My husband and I and ourfamily and friends HIGHLY recommend Reverend Saundra of I Do x 2 if you are looking for a fun, beautiful, awesome person to share in your Special Day! Reverend Saundra and her son made our day and Memorable one and we could not have asked for anything more! Thank you again Reverend Saundra. You're the BEST!

I was just recently involved in a wedding where I was responsible for finding a reliable bartender. I was stressed, worried and nervous that I wouldn't find a proper fit...and then I came across Michael. I had a good vibe from the get-go and I was so incredibly pleased with his knock-out performance!!! Michael is amazing, I sincerely cannot say enough nice things about him. Prompt, efficient, humorous, diligent and kind are all easy attributes to describe Michael, but this man goes above and beyond. Michael has an incredible work ethic, he aided in set up/tear down and EVERYTHING in between. He is courteous even if others are not, and I found him to be extremely professional. He has a great way about him and really relates to all kinds of folks which is so wonderful. Michael truly delivered 100% and he made the night memorable. This guy is a work horse, and his goal is to make things run smoothly. If you need someone who is a true professional, here is your man! I would hire him for any and every single upcoming event, you will not be disappointed!!

Tiffany was a lifesaver, before, during, and after my September 13th wedding. I wasn't anticipating needing a day-of coordinator, so I sent my thumbtack request out less than a month before my wedding, but Tiffany was able to hit the ground running. We met before the wedding and she was professional and organized and able to help me work out last-minute details I hadn't even considered. The day of my wedding, she set up all the reception decorations single-handedly, managed the vendors and timing, and made sure everything ended up where it was supposed to, post-wedding. Tiffany did an amazing job and was a joy to work with. I'm not exaggerating when I say that hiring her was the single most stress-relieving decision I made during my entire wedding-planning process - I only wish I had hired her months ago!

Alisa was hired to cater our wedding of 35 guests at a private residence. She went above and beyond call of duty with cocktails, appetizers, the dinner, and setting up, breaking down the event. She arrived early to set up for both the ceremony and the dinner, and provided the cocktails and beer which received reave reviews from the guests. For the appetizers, she provided polenta bites and bruschetta in keeping with our Italian menu and both were really tasty. The dinner menu consisted of a caesar salad with grilled salmon, tomato bisque, and a cappellacci di zucca; all were truly delicious. She cleaned up the same night, making it easy for us to enjoy the kitchen the next morning for breakfast. If I were to host another event, I would hire Alisa in a heartbeat.

She was very laid back and I mean this in a good way. I like to be in control when planning my wedding or events and she made sure to listen and make sure all my visions and choices were taken care of! At our wedding I didn't feel stressed at all and having her took a lot of potential stress off my shoulders. She was extremely helpful and good at communicating with me. Thanks !

AnnaMarie was AMAZING. She was so completely helpful and perfect as our day-of coordinator. Everyone that worked with her was impressed with her efficiency, precision and professionalism. She gently guided us through the day and I was able to fully relax and feel that things were being taken care of. My husband is a fairly exacting and organized German and he was so appreciative of the AR Weddings services. Honestly, I could not recommend more. If you're planning a wedding in the bay area, this is your event planner!!!

I want to give these guys a million stars. They catered our wedding back in August and they were the best vendor team anyone could have ever asked for. They were SO fun to work with throughout the whole process and made everything so easy and stress free. I cannot imagine working with anyone else. Everyone was raving about the food and the best cupcakes and cake they had EVER had (honestly we weren't even going to have a cake at all until we tasted there's). Thank you Nick and the whole Famous Creations team for making our wedding the best day of our lives and making the wedding planning fun!!

My husband and I were just married and Matt planned our wedding reception. He did a fantastic job - the event was perfect! Matt was knowledgeable and really easy to work with. His recommendations were spot on. My husband and I took forever with some decisions and Matt was good about following up with us as well as taking last minute requests. Definitely highly recommend!

When we met Khadija we were half way through the wedding planning, and we knew what we wanted in our party but we still needed plenty of guidance...Khadija and James provided that and then some! We found Limelight Productions to be all we could have hoped for and more. Not only is their team very organized and knowledgeable but they helped us to think of things we never would have otherwise considered and they truly went above and beyond. We never had one e-mail, text or call not promptly responded to and at the right times they even gave us some needed pushes on planning and execution as our big day drew nearer. The week of the wedding arrived and Khadija and James (and Ayesha for the bouquet production) showed why they deserve nothing less than 5 stars on their reviews. They were fantastic and very professional, and our party was amazing because they were an amazing team handling things for and with us. Our thank you very much to them, and best recommendations. There is no way we could have had our wedding without them!

We were extremely happy with Taneva Events. We wanted a simple but elegant wedding in Hawaii and Velina at Taneva Events provided that and more for us. She worked with us on everything from the smallest detail on the dinner napkins to working with vendors on logistical details, setup on the day of the wedding and ensuring our day was perfect. We did not have a clear idea of what we wanted to do for our wedding besides the fact that we wanted to keep it simple and take advantage of the natural beauty of the setting. Velina was really helpful from the start, brainstorming ideas with us, and making suggestions for the decor that we would have never thought of on our won. We did not want traditional flower centerpieces, and Velina was able to accommodate us by creating beautiful pineapple centerpieces, and tied them all together with the runner, candles, handmade napkins, and pedestals that she placed the pineapples on. Everybody complemented the decor and the bridal bouquet that she created from traditional Hawaiian flowers. We could not have had such a beautiful and smooth day without Velina's help. Planning for a wedding is always stressful, but Velina eased a lot of our stress and was always a pleasure to work with.

Prior to our meeting with Lura we were nervous, lots of questions running through our heads, how do we know this is the right person. Our meeting went better than we expected, she had us in her best interest and we just had good vibes, to top it off we had Fiji in common, We are from fiji and she has visited and loved our country and culture and traditions which was great because our wedding was going to be traditional. Lura is very positive, always checking in to see if there was something she could do to lift any weight for that day. Always smiling, and she always made sure we remembered that it was our day have fun and she would handle the rest. Our day ran so smoothly lura went above and beyond our expectations. We didnt feel worried and when we did she handled it. It was great having lura, our families loved Lura. Lura thank you for allowing us to enjoy our wedding day, your amazing. We love and appreciate everything you did for us. May God continue to bless you. You mean so much to us. Patrick & Lusiana Levy

This review is long overdue (wedding was 10.20.17), but I wanted to make sure I shared my experience with Exquisite Weddings & Events! I had decided to plan everything myself to save money (bad idea). About 6 weeks before the wedding I was so stressed out, up to my throat in "things to do." It dawned on me that the only way I could maintain a healthy level of sanity was if I hired a day of coordinator since I had done mostly everything else up to that point. I wasn't able to meet Jill in person until the wedding because I live in San Diego (wedding was in Yosemite). She was very friendly and professional for our consultation call - I immediately felt like I was comfortable working with her long distance and hired her the next day. Let me just say, Jill went above and beyond BEFORE the "day of" that I hired her for. Although I had done a lot (so I thought), there was still so much more to do... thank goodness Jill was there to help me! She tied up loose ends with a couple of the vendors that I had been having a hard time communicating with. She stayed on top of keeping in contact with all my vendors regarding any changes, confirming details, etc. She was even so kind as to loan me a few decorations that I couldn't figure out at the last minute. As soon as Jill got to the cabin on the wedding day, she immediately got to work setting up last minute decorations. I didn't see her again until the ceremony and she did a great job making sure everything ran smoothly. After the ceremony, she went straight to the reception and met all the vendors there to help get everything set up. When the wedding party arrived, it was clear everyone had been taken care of. Needless to say, the rest of the reception was a breeze! I would highly recommend Exquisite Weddings & Events. If I had to do it all over again, the only thing I would change would be to hire Jill as my full time coordinator rather than day of. For the price, it doesn't get any better! Thanks Jill!!

Robyn was a delight . Very enthusiastic over the baby shower. She sent me pics to look at & adorable. However we found out before meeting my daughter in law could not make it. I will be calling Robyn for my next event . She has excellent taste & very elegant on other events too. She cares & walks you through it all.

Kendra was nothing short of AMAZING! Kendra helped keep my family from taking over and helped us realize our vision for the wedding day. She created a thorough timeline and helped us keep to it, photos went seamlessly, any rogue family members were handled with care and respect, all vendor issues were filtered through her and handled without me even knowing there were any, and I knew I could trust her to create a beautiful space for our ceremony and reception. I don't think my wedding would've been so stress-free without her!

I could not have imagined a better wedding day and it was in large part due to all the hard work Marissa put in. I had a few items figured out and thought I would be able to plan the entire wedding on my own, thank goodness Marissa was recommended by a friend! I was unsure on the "theme" direction I wanted to go and Marissa was able to quickly determine my actual wants and make them come to life. She had great suggestions on vendors and handled the details with all of them. She also did all of my flower arrangements, including the bouquets and boutonnieres, which were beautiful. My rehearsal and wedding day were absolutely perfect. I didn't once think about any detail or item I may had forgotten because Marissa had everything so put together and organized that I never felt the need to worry. I would refer her to any one of my family members or closest friends at any time! If stress free wedding planning is what you are looking for, Marissa is your lady!

Christina and her team at CRC Custom Events were amazing! We would 100% recommend her. We hired her for day-of coordination and venue decor. She did so much for us leading up to the wedding and making sure we were thinking through everything. She is easy to work with and we were able to trust her to use her own judgement with some of the decor arrangements. Seriously, our wedding looked so beautiful; above and beyond our expectations!

Jane and Teresa are wonderful! They are really a one stop shop! Not only did they do all the flowers for my wedding but they also did all my linen's and altered my wedding dress! Everything they did for me really tied all my wedding decor together and made it pop in a beautiful way! I was complemented on the flowers and table clothes all night long! Would defiantly go back to them for any event.
