Michael showed up on time, stayed late, and made sure all 80+ people at my wedding were served promptly. He was able to handle a crowd of drinkers by himself and the drinks were very good.
Tiffany was the day-of coordinator for the reception part of my wedding, and she was amazing. She helped us create a wedding day timeline, set up for the reception, manage the timing of events, and clean up afterwards. She was very knowledgeable and experienced. Our vendors loved working with her. Highly recommended!
Danny is one of the most creative persons I have met. His ideas are always fresh, new, as he contemplates the possibilities for any occasion. You can almost see his brain in action as he lights up with ideas and suggestions. Delightful surprises appear in the results of his presentations. If a problem develops on the event day, he confidently and quickly figures out a solution and puts it to work. He has his clients interests at heart and is friendly and reliable in all that he does. It is obvious, he loves his work! Bobbi Hennessey
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!
We hired Isaac for my cousin's wedding. He was a great MC and DJ! Isaac was funny, kept the crowd informed, paid close attention to the wedding timeline, and adhered to the music genre we had asked for. He showed up on time for both the wedding rehearsal and the wedding ceremony and set up his equipment and lighting in a timely manner. Overall, he was very professional, and would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to have a good time!
We hired Limelight to decorate our wedding. They did a great job listening to what we wanted and suggesting ideas based on that. They created two backdrops for us, both of which were beautiful. They were easy to work with and friendly and set-up and broke down everything without any hassle.

Great work quality, great personality and the best value you can find! We loved working with Velina, she is very detailed and went the extra mile to ensure everything is completed on time while exceeding our expectations. Thank you for making our wedding ceremony and reception so beautiful. We couldn't have imagined a better service than you provided us. We loved the freshness of the flowers and the details you added to every individual decoration. We will work with you again and we will continue to recommend your great service. Julia&Kevin
Loved working with Sassy Diva! The floral design on my wedding day definitely exceeded all of my exceptions. Can't thank you enough, Beth!
Christina was great to work with. After a phone conversation of what we were looking for at our wedding, Christina visited the venue and sent us a few other ideas that really made the event special. The floral arrangements were incredibly well done, creative and the perfect tone for our wedding and the venue. We cannot say enough about the experience, and would recommend her to anyone.
I was hired as a server for a wedding in Healdsburg, Ca that Tracie catered! The event was flawless and amazingly beautiful! Tracie went above and beyond to ensure the wedding party , guests and staff were well taken care of! Her eye for detail is acute and she is an absolute treasure to work with and for!
During our first meeting, Mary Kay explained that her goal was to make sure that we (parents of the bride) would be relaxed, confident and enjoying the special moments of our daughter's wedding day - WITHOUT having to worry about logistics, timelines or small details. With years of experience, and knowledge planning and coordinating large events and weddings, MaryKay provided guidance, clarity, creativity and the confidence to put our minds and hearts totally at ease. She served as a sounding board for creative time and money-saving ideas the months leading up to the wedding, and especially during the final month and the week of -and day of- our daughter's wedding. Mary Kay helped us explore sample table decor ideas, keeping into consideration our budget. She used her vast knowledge of vendors in the SF Bay Area, and created 'demo' and 'mock-up' table decor settings, helping us finalize our lovely decor designs. Her expertise, can-do attitude, sense of humor and clear and intentional communications resulted in peace of mind and confidence on our part (the parents of the bride) that all would be well on the big day. Even if something unexpected would happen, we were confident that Mary Kay would come to the rescue! Her 'Day Of' emergency kit was stocked FULL of anything that might be needed. And with out of town visitors, she suggested gift-basket/welcome ideas that were a huge hit with our guests. She stayed in communication with our vendors, and provided a detailed timeline and work-back schedule for the very busy 'Week Of' and 'Day Of' the wedding. Everything went off without a hitch! Many of our wedding guests marveled at how smoothly everything went on the big day (3/21/15), which we believe is in large part due to the pre-planning, fun, creative energy and guidance provided by Mary Kay. If you are planning a wedding or special event, and would like to release and let go of the stress, details and planning... Mary Kay is for you! We are more than happy to HIGHLY recommend Mary Kay to anyone who may need her services.
Thus far we have only completed the tasting, but Chef Judi & Chef Cyprus nailed it. They are wonderful listeners and have a great palate. My fiancee and I are complete foodies, therefore the food at our wedding is truly what the reception is about. We are confident that Taste-Full Events will provide our guests with the culinary experience we want them to have.
Daniel did an outstanding job! From the music, up lighting and emceeing was amazing. He was responsive, helpful and open to playing anything we wanted. If you are looking for a DJ that you can trust and get everyone on the dance floor, look no further than Daniel! He will communicate professionally and make your wedding, party, or event a day to remember.
Maggie was a pleasure to work with and provided consistency in the signs I needed for my Bridal Shower, Wedding Ceremony, and Reception. Her communication during her creative process was clear and after she had me provide words I needed, she worked her magic! Even the rough drafts she ran by me exceeded my expectations. Everything was done in a timely manner and were of amazing quality. I added a last minute tiki-bar to my reception and the bar signs she made were the perfect customized touch! Not only is she talented, Maggie wholeheartedly cares about the end result and overall satisfaction her designs bring. Thank you Maggie, I hope to work with you again in the future!
Olivia oasis was a life saver for my wedding...not only are the ladies extremely gifted but they did not allow me to stress out which is usually unheard of for a bride to be. The assisted me with appointments , arrangements etc. The decorations were beautiful and the program ran smoothly. If i were you, I would look no more because you have found a winner!
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 worked with Sepideh from Savvy Chic on my September 2017 wedding for day of wedding coordination. She was really detail-oriented, asked great questions, was happy to execute all of the plans that were in the works and did so calmly and positively. I'd recommend her to anyone seeking wedding support!
Danny's floral arrangements are beautiful and thoughtful composites plucked out of fairy tale imagery. I was a bride who hired Danny for my wedding flowers. Originally, I just wanted fresh flowers, some roses, something simple and pretty. However, for the centerpieces, I requested a special set-up with Moroccan lanterns, rustic wood slabs, and flowers spilling out the lanterns flanked by oranges (a Chinese symbol for fortune). In addition, I noted that our wedding colors were pink, blue, cream and gold. Danny was extremely open, flexible, and considerate in listening to my and my husband's vision. In addition, there were a few last minute changes such as: number of reception tables, changing my bouquet to a cascade bouquet, and adding more corsages and boutonnieres to the order. Danny was always very patient and graciously said that he'll do everything he could to make my wedding a dream come true. On the day of my wedding, I walked into my bridal changing room and saw the most gorgeous bouquet I'd ever seen. Blush roses, blue orchis, delicate violet flowers, and eucalyptus coins tumbled majestically in a floral waterfall - wild and natural, yet together making a disciplined formation. Later, I walked down the aisle and saw my beloved standing in front of a gazebo that was swathed in white chiffon and vibrant florals, also Danny's work. An hour and a half later, when we entered the reception room, I was met with the magnificence of our sweetheart table. Being a practical person, I had just discussed with Danny that we'd have a simple sweetheart table with my bridal bouquet as a centerpiece. What met my eyes was a golden tablecloth filled with rosette swirls. Across it were crystal goblets, Moroccan lanterns juxtaposed with oranges and golden frames containing my husband's and my pictures and standing atop tomes and wooden slabs. In that moment, my simple self became suddenly enraptured by a desire for lovely things, and in my transformation, decided that I must preserve my bridal bouquet. Danny indeed works magic.
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.
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!
