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.

Lavonne was very flexible working with our small event. A small event of important people all with different food issues. She created an appetizer feast for meat eaters, vegetarians, gluten-free, dairy-free. Everyone was happy and well fed. She did a great job and we will use her again. I recommend Sage Bleu for your catering needs.

Mary is amazing! Her menu items are the best I have seen. When I looked at the exquisite menu for the price my jaw dropped! I have seen menu prices on the very high end and those menu choice did not excite me at all. AND she has been a great help in finding venues that she works with, for me making this whole process of planning a wedding on a tight budget manageable. Every venue I talked to, knew her by name. Thank you Mary for all you have done--way above and beyond any and all expectations I had!!!

Andrea at Events by Abel is truly fantastic! I first met Andrea through her organizing a running event, and the weekend went by seamlessly. I next attended an event she coordinated to raise money for the American Cancer Society. That event was classy, tasteful and so creative. Andrea is incredibly organized, super detail-oriented and has one of the strongest work ethics I've ever seen. Not to mention, she can make anyone she's around feel comfortable and at ease. If I ever have an event I need help with (wedding, fundraiser, party, etc) - Andrea will be the first person I come to. If you're considering reaching out to her, I think you'll be happy you did!

My fiance and I spent what felt like forever debating if we would need to hire a wedding planner and a florist. We really didn't want to because we felt we could handle most of it ourselves, but the hesitation was around the decor, flowers, and overall style of our wedding. I'm clueless when it comes to making something out of nothing... Enter Kelly (Champagne Projects). We met Kelly when she was hitting the ground running with Champagne Projects and always loved EVERYTHING she put together (even things for fun around her home -- you should see what this woman can do with almost any size budget and creative freedom -- it's astounding). So we thought, hmm, why hire a wedding planner and a florist when we have someone we trust right here? Fast forward to the planning part. I hate planning. Did I mention I have no eye for decor? Right. Well, Kelly dealt with this for about 6 months, providing suggestions, finding alternatives, and essentially saying, "It's OK, I got this," about a zillion times. If it weren't for her quick-thinking, eye for creativity, and love for design, I'd have pulled my hair out well before the wedding ;) ...she even worked with the event coordinator to arrive early to have time to get everything done without rushing -- details I'd never have thought of, she took it upon herself to go above and beyond. So long story even longer, Champagne Projects KILLED IT at our wedding. The bride and bridesmaid bouquets were the perfect balance of color and size, the centerpieces made the boring white table cloths seem non-existent, and the head table looked like something out of a fairy tale. She even personally wove together eucalyptus garland for our ceremony and brought extra flowers for the cake and desert table. When we got to the venue after Kelly and the event coordinator had set up, I had to walk around and just take it all in. She was able to do what most people really seem to struggle with - MAKE YOUR PINTEREST DREAMS A REALITY - at a really competitive rate. If that doesn't justify choosing Kelly to style your event, browse the photos on her website and Instagram. They speak for themselves! I wish I had more photos to share but they're not back from the photographer yet. THANK YOU Kelly for doing (what I felt like was) the impossible <3

Rinna was sooo amazing! From our initial meeting, until the end of our wedding day, she was there for us. She was present for meetings with vendors and was always in contact with them with questions or reaching out to them about documents that needed to be submitted, etc.. She made sure things were done on time. Rinna's friendly and outgoing personality truly made the wedding planning process fun and enjoyable. She was easy to contact and made countless suggestions that fit our needs. Rinna most definitely goes above and beyond, and put her whole heart into helping with our big day! We are very pleased with her services and grateful for everything she did for us! Thank you Rinna, we appreciate you!

Eventspell did awesome job coordinating my very very detailed wedding!! We had lots of surprises and set up for the event and EventSpell took care of the coordination. They spent extra time making sure all was well and the event was set up and all the way down to the clean up. The day would have been a lot more stressful, but Eventspell made sure all went well on our special day. My guest said it was the most beautiful, best wedding they have been to. I wouldn't have been able to make it all happen without EventSpell!! Thank you for caring as if it was your own event!!

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

Nikki is not only an incredible chef, but really capable of creating once in a lifetime experiences! We've worked with Nikki on a number of occasions, but most notably for my wedding rehearsal dinner. With a limited budget Nikki was able to prepare a fantastic Coq Au Vin for THIRTY people, and dress the space like a stunning provençal dream. We would recommend her for any theme, idea or palate that you're trying to blow out.

I’ve worked with Above and Beyond Events for several corporate and social events - and can say that they are hands down the best event company out there. For my last event (corporate fundraiser) Selina (the owner), met with me personally and went over each and every detail, and thought of multiple things that I didn’t event think about. She is quick to respond via email, and made sure that everything ran smoothly through setup and execution of the event. She created a beautiful setup, provided lovely certerpieces and even coordinated all take down after the event. I truly can’t say enough about Selina and Above and Beyond Events, my expectations have been exceeded every time.

I needed a Wedding Coordinator to decorate the reception venue on the day of the wedding since I wasn’t going to have time to do so, Valentina contacted me and from her initial email I knew she was perfect! Her email stood out from others due to her professionalism and well thought out questions, she came off as someone that knew what the job entailed and asked all the right questions. The wedding was 5 months away Valentina kept in touch and as the date draw closer scheduled a meeting to go over the details meeting her in person just solidified my decision. Throughout the months Valentina made sure to very politely keep in touch with me always offering to help in anything needed despite the fact that I had only hired her for the day of. In the few days before the wedding she contacted me to check on last details, 3 days before the wedding I had to completely change the lay-out and was in constant communication with her for the next 2 days. Valentina went above and beyond to make our day perfect, I really never did worry about the reception decoration because she was in charge she gave me such peace of mind it was really great to be able to trust someone so much and not have to worry. The day came and she did an absolutely great job, she got to the venue early, set up the tables, décor, managed the florist and arrangements, deliveries, picked up a cake, greeted our guests and announced our entrance. Valentina was absolutely amazing and wedding coordination is really her calling, she had great taste decorating the cake table, gift table, everything looked beautiful. She added a few flowers to the cake and sent me a picture for approval it was so classy and beautiful and something I hadn’t thought of. Valentina was a joy to work with, always professional, kind and willing to do a great job she was my best vendor and I’m so grateful for her she saved me a lot of stress and did a great job my guests were blown way and are still talking about how beautiful the reception was. I’m a Project Planner by profession and looked forward to planning my own wedding which was fun, but I would not hesitate to hire Valentina and just let her plan and execute the entire event, in fact had I known her earlier I probably would just have hired and let her design and manage it.

Glennie and her team was Everything I had hoped for and more! They were so helpful throughout the entire process, went above and beyond, and we’re so detail oriented and amazing. I really did not have to plan my wedding because they had it all planned for me. I just had a vision, I told him what I wanted, and they made it happen. I would highly recommend Glennie and her team To everyone I know. My wedding of 450 gas and having it on today’s was so fun and exciting. If I were to have it again in 10 years, I would definitely rebook with her.

Vanessa was an absolute pleasure to work with! I hired her to help me coordinator everything leading up to our wedding day. Her attention to detail was phenomenal and served as a wonderful second pair of eyes in reading over all the contracts from vendors! I couldn't believe how many details and questions there was but she was there to answer and ask all of them. It was really great that once the wedding date was approaching she started answering emails from my vendors because she already had the answers which saved us a great time of time! She really knew her way about event planning and it was so comfortable for me to talk to her about changes or thoughts and she is very flexible with direction if you change your mind. Vanessa responds when she sees your email and will let you know if she saw your email but didn't have time to answer. I loved how well she communicated with me. She texts right away and she is very thorough with her email responses. She is adaptable in learning how to efficiently use technology to her advantage. I opted to use GoogleDrive to share documents back and forth. Until she met me, she didn't know how to use and now she is an expert! I cannot imagine not having this wedding without all of Vanessa's hard work! She deserves all the credit.

I hired Candace as the coordinator for my wedding. She went above and beyond my expectations. I felt like so many worries I had melted away once I began working with her. She is very dedicated to providing the best experience for her clients and she looks at every detail... even all those details that only an experienced event professional would even think of. I would not hesitate to hire her for another event I have and would recommend her to anyone looking for someone who is reliable, organized and proactive in planning their event. She is beyond outstanding!

Krista did my wedding invitations and my wedding favor tags. I was blown away! Every aspect of planning my wedding was becoming more and more stressful, and the first fun thing I did for my wedding was to work with Krista on making a design for my invitations. I did not have a clear vision of what I wanted and Krista helped me to make decisions through small steps. It was overwhelming looking online at all sorts of different invitations, but Krista asked me simple questions that helped me to weed out what I didn’t want and discover what I did want. I ended up with an overall product that really gave guests a glimpse into what the wedding would be like. I had so many compliments on my invitations, and they were one of a kind. Krista was always quick to respond to me, met all of her deadlines, and never even batted an eye when I asked for MULTIPLE revisions. Her attention to detail is amazing, and there is nothing I would change about my final product. I had no idea that I could get custom invitations at a reasonable price. Only a few weeks before my wedding I asked if Krista could help me with my favor tags since I was running out of time to do them myself. Krista came up with an amazing design that matched our invitations and had them to me in record time. Working with Krista on the invitations and favor tags was probably the smoothest part of planning my wedding. With Babies on the brain I know I will be in touch soon to help with baby announcements and kid birthday parties. I am a customer for life. Thank you Krista!!!

Debi & her team are the best resource I know of for party and event help. We've used her for charity events, birthday and anniversary party planning, execution and gift help, decorating for the holidays. I also had Debi help with team parties. No detail is left out or unattended to. She's organized, creative, and fun to work with.
