Monica was a pleasure to work with. She did a great job helping with the process of planning and making sure things got done. With the stress of wedding planning having her as a wedding coordinator helped us feel less stressed. She gave us great advice on vendors and helped us find the best deals. She was always available to answer questions. I felt like I was planning my wedding with a friend and I couldn't ask for a better experience. My family was also very pleased with her services.
We hired Marie and her team as day of coordinator for our wedding this past June in La Jolla, San Diego at the La Jolla Women's Club. Marie made our wedding day a complete breeze! You can tell she's been in the business a long time and had so many helpful suggestions and ideas. Her and her team were punctual, professional, and have all of the qualities to pull of a beautiful wedding. Our wedding was mostly DIY- we booked a venue, but brought in all of our own decor, linens, etc. Marie and her team arrived on time to set everything up beautifully, and they guided us from start to finish to make sure everything was exactly as we wished. Marie and her team went above and beyond "day of coordinator" as they attended our venue walkthrough with caterer and photographer, as well as our rehearsal to guide us! We are SO thankful we had Marie and her team with us on our wedding day.
LV went over and beyond what we expected from her when we hired her as wedding coordinator (day of). She made everything stress free for us, smooth and as perfect as it could possibly be. We originally planned to do everything by ourselves but we realized that this is not possible. It is also not fair to task relatives or friends to help out with wedding preps as we want them to just have fun on our special occasion. The simple and only solution was to hire LV and she took care of everything. She took charge and even planned the wedding reception timeline from start to finish. From the smallest detail up to working and coordinating with all the vendors. She was just so pleasant with everybody and it felt like she was in charge of everybody like the dj, photographer, caterers etc. She managed and worked with everybody so well which made our wedding reception as perfect as it could possibly be. Hiring her is like hiring a team because she can get everybody to work together towards a common goal. Me and wife is so grateful and lucky to have hired LV as our wedding coordinator.
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!
We had them cater our Wedding last weekend and they were a godsend. I could go on and on about how wonderful, caring, attentive and friendly they were. While planning they were a great source of advice and guidance. Chef Renee gracefully answered my parents' (numerous) questions basically being our caterer/wedding planner. Most importantly the food was delicious!! The passed hors d'oeuvres for cocktail hour were outstanding and everyone complimented the incredible dinner! To top it all off our cake was delicious and beautiful, Did I say delicious!! They also provided friendly and attentive bartenders and waitstaff. Everything was so good, our guests were so happy and full... we are still receiving compliments. The entire team was professional and so attentive and they really set up our tables beautifully! Chef Renee and her team went above and beyond our expectations and really made our day perfect! If you hire them you won't be disappointed!! We can't wait until the occasion comes to use them again!
We had EventSpell decorate and manage everything for my bridal shower and they did a phenomenal job! I was blown away at how great the tables and centerpieces looked. The wall that was decorated was truly spectacular. It takes someone with a great sense of imagination and design to have transformed the area from an empty dull clubhouse into a Great Gatsby themed shower. I was awestruck by everything because it felt like I was stepping back into time. I could not have asked for a better shower and Ishita did a great job with everything! I would highly recommend her services to anyone planning a party, wedding, shower, etc!
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
Pleazingly Tasteful catered my wedding, their service was spectacular!! I highly recommend their services, especially the grape tree. The most delicious grapes I've ever had. They were very professional, the food was well plated and tasty.
Having a wedding coordinator was the best idea ever! Friends have told me how stressful wedding planning was for them and I knew I didn’t want that! Hiring a coordinator is another expense— but Alicia saved us so much money as well. She connected us to vendors that were in our budget and knew how to translate my ideas for decorations, centerpieces and favors in a cost-effective way. A huge bonus to picking Alicia as our wedding planner was all the vendors she knew. Our DJ, caterer, florist, photo booth and linen rental were all her recommendations are we are so glad we chose them. Although we had never seen these vendors in action, Alicia has worked with them multiple times at other weddings and knew we could trust them with our special day. Another way Alicia saved me from stress was the way she handled all of the communication from the vendors. She worked directly with all of them so that on the day of the wedding no one was asking the bride any questions because Alicia knew what was going on and they had been communicating with her. I would definitely recommend Alicia as a wedding coordinator. She was great at communicating with me and responding quickly. When I undertake an important project I have never done before I enlist help— why would I approach planning a wedding any differently? I have never planned a wedding before, but Alicia brought so much experience to the table. She is the perfect guide to your wedding planning experience.
LOVED working with The Eventful Planner for our wedding and catering! Literally turned my dream wedding into a reality with no issues. Hope to work with you all again one day!
Until I became the bride-to-be I hadn't put much thought into having a wedding coordinator. Luckily a friend of mine could see what stress I was about to be under and offered to get Selina Taylor in contact with me. I'm so glad she did! My fiance and I still wanted to be the "wedding planners" but I needed help bringing it all to that big day. My fiance ended up being deployed for more than half of the time we were engaged and having Selina to call on was a great stress reliever. I detest making phone calls and asking a million questions so Selina offered to do "the grunt work" for me. She listened to my ideas, took impeccable notes whenever I was unprepared for a meeting, and really understood what I wanted. She presented things to me in a way that was not overwhelming, which allowed me to feel comfortable about decisions I was making. Her contacts and suggestions of vendors were great and freed up time for other things. She became a point of contact for my mom and sister as well when I asked for their help with specific things. My biggest worry was how everything was going to come together the day of the wedding if I wasn't there to do it. Selina squashed that fear! When I showed up at the venue I was in awe of everything. It all looked better than I had imagined it. She helped me to pull all of my dreams and visions together and it looked perfect! Selina and I had a wonderful time together for those 8ish months. I am so grateful for everything she did and the friendship we have today
I can't speak highly enough of Valentina! She was our wedding day coordinator and I could not have asked for more. Everything went so perfect and so smooth. From the moment I met her, I knew she is someone who strives to perfection. I am myself very detailed oriented and I recognized alike-souls :). She went above and beyond to make sure everything would go smooth, she is very detailed oriented, very fast, and on top of everything. She is also very easy to get along with, flexible, kind, great personality. Being new in town, and not having a huge support system here, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed about the whole wedding planning, and having her onboard was magical, she was an angel! Can't speak enough of her, thank you Valentina!!
Talissa was so amazing in helping me plan my wedding last October. From the flowers, to the set up of my ceremony, into the reception and everything little Inbetween was beautiful. My wedding would not of looked anywhere close to what it did without her perfect touch. I was so beyond thankful for her in making my special day all I wanted! The pictures I have forever will remind me how great it is to have an amazing wedding planner by my side.
I have some advice for all you soon to be married couples out there: “Think Happy Dots!” Literally and figuratively speaking ;) I was so nervous to seek out a Wedding Planner (aside from the regular nervous breakdowns trying to figure everything out before our wedding date haha) I was worried about reaching out to anyone and being turned for being in a same sex relationship. I can’t describe how relieving and heart felt it was to have found a planner like Megan; she was like our fairy god planner :) COMMUNICATION & LISTENING!! she had the perfect blend of the two. Walking through our venue on our special day I noticed every little detail and how she made it count. Petals perfectly placed, the lighting complementing the mood, the love put into our bouquets, and the smiles on our friends’ and families’ faces the entire time…everyone was all so happy helping us celebrate. Happiness simply illuminated the entire day. Maybe that’s why it’s called think HAPPY Dots :)))
We hired Ashley as a day-of planner for a medium sized wedding of 115 guests with several vendors to coordinate. We were so glad we did too. Ashley did a great job coordinating the vendors during our wedding day. She was able to pickup where we left off and fill in where we might have had gaps. I didn’t want a planner and to anyone sitting on the fence about this decision- get a planner and hire Ashley. I couldn’t be happier with how smoothly the day went and how Ashley managed the event.
Kylee planned a party for my boyfriends birthday and it turned out very well. Throughout the entire process she was very helpful. She listened to all of my needs and made sure they were met. I plan on using her for my wedding next year. She's wonderful!
I let Samantha know from the start, I have no dance tallent. 6 lessons later, I was able to dance with my wife at our wedding and looked like I had been doing it for years. She is very patient and full of creative ideas. We first met and she gave us an outline of options and fees. She did not stray from her fees and showed a true ability to teach. Her professionalism at our wedding as coordinator was unmatched. She was very tactful in her approach and kept the entire evening right on time. We would highly recommend her, she is a very talented, professional lady with a great group of vendors to work hand in hand to create your perfect event.
I have planned numerous weddings, including my own. With my services, you will receive face-to-face meetings where we discuss everything you want on your dream day and a Pinterest board that I will make into a binder that describes your big day and numerous vendor suggestions, as well as a service for those brides who aren't "DIY" savvy. Give me a project, and I will find a way to get it done. I want nothing less than to shape and make a reality the dream you have been having all your life.
