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.
I found Matt as a great and competitive bid on Thumbtack for my wedding personal flowers. I had made my own centerpieces and alter pieces. I sent Matt pictures of my inspiration bouquet and my own creations. I told him I was open minded as long as everything flowed nicely together. I was more than pleased! We got much larger flower arrangements than I had anticipated for the price. They looked amazingly similar to my inspiration pic and also blended well with the decor I had created. Matt was very responsive and easy going via email and didn't worry that one of my payments was a bit late. My wedding planner picked up the flowers, but she said there were no problems with this process either. Overall, flowers were not something I thought I cared too much about--however Matt not only made them fit within my budget, but also made them one of my favorite touches to our wedding. I cannot recommend Forsyth Designs enough. Wonderful to work with all around.
Rev Saundra is just fantastic! Not only is she a wedding officiant but also a wedding planner. She is so full of knowledge and comfort to make this very important life event go with ease.
Before I give my glowing review of Tiffany, I have to preface the review with a few words so you know that I was in your shoes. Wedding planning sucks and having to stick to a limited budget doesn't it make it easier. As a bride, sometimes you have to cut corners in order to afford simple things (or let's be honest more desired things) for your wedding. Hiring a full service wedding planner, was one of those things that I really wanted, but I knew it would take a huge chunk out of my wedding budget. My wedding was in San Francisco, so its not the cheapest city to have your wedding. But after receiving price quotes from full service wedding planners, their prices depressed me (adding unnecessary stress to my wedding budget woes) and when I looked at their packages, I just didn't feel like it was right for me or my budget. I had to take a step back, breathe, and take ownership of wedding planning and face reality. I knew what Id need to do, to stay on budget. I had big decisions to make as a bride, but I knew I could save a ton, if I planned my own wedding. So I thought hey I plan many events for my friends, family, and clients all the time, weve got about 85-100 guests to invite, why not plan my own wedding, and hire a day of coordinator to save money?" I did just that and when I was in the process of looking for a day of coordinator, my next thought was, "shoot if I hire a day of coordinator, will I overlook something and regret not hiring a full service wedding planner?". With caution, I started to ask for quotes for day of coordinators and realized right away what I needed to do. I put a request up on Thumbtack and the email quotes came rolling in. I was astonished. But I was in a conundrum - every price was competitive, so how does one choose a vendor over the other. All of them had amazing reviews (which put my initial concerns more at ease). I spent a few days emailing back different vendors, asking them questions, reading their reviews, even looking them up on Linkedin! I did some my research and eventually decided on Tiffany Won. Choosing her as the day of coordinator was one of the best decisions I made during the wedding planning process. 3 pieces of advice if you DIY: First off ladies, have more confidence in your planning abilities and use the resources the internet provides you (there are a ton of wedding checklists and schedules online to help you plan your own wedding, and for inspiration for décor or what not, pinterest was key for me). It might be intimating at first, and the time involved in planning your wedding might feel like an absolute time suck, but trust in yourself and plan your day. No one has a better vision of what you want for your wedding, more than you. Secondly, trust in a day of coordinator like Tiffany to execute on your vision. She's top notch and will be a valuable asset in your planning process. I hired her as my day of coordinator. I was a little anxious, but after I spoke with her on the phone and especially after I met her before my wedding for the 2 hour pre-wedding meeting, I could tell that she had plenty of experience in event planning and coordination. Not only does she have experience in wedding planning, but she has extensive experience planning corporate events and conferences, which as you know, could range from hundreds to thousands of attendees. My thought was, if this girl can plan corporate events that are large scale, she will definitely be able to coordinate my smaller scale event. She also asked the right questions before the wedding, which put my concerns at ease, since she is very sharp and it became clear to me, that event planning plays a very familiar story in her head, a story she knows word for word. Thirdly, stick to your budget. If you need to roll up them sleeves and plan your wedding, just do it. But call in some cavalry to take over on the day of your wedding day because youll need it. Make sure you go with a pro like Tiffany. Im pretty detailed oriented. So is she. I thought I had every detail planned, all she has to do is follow the schedule. You know what, she was able to catch holes in my schedule and my planning. She worked with me to double check my wedding schedule and everything the whole shebang from pre-wedding day stuff like what time the florist will set up, when will the lighting company get to the venue, advice or a second opinion on wedding décor, suggestions for additional vendors .even ceremony logistics such as where people would stand, the flow of the event, gaps in the vendors schedules and the wedding reception details like when the band would take their breaks so she can play an ipod or something so background music would play, helping with the mic transition from the emcee to other guest speakers, overseeing food service so there wasn't a huge gap between the appetizers and dinner, making sure I ate, making sure the groom and I did our table rounds to thank our guests for coming, making sure at the end of the evening someone could collect my wedding gifts, etc etc. Tiffany did a phenomenal job at overseeing every tiny detail the day of the wedding! My wedding went smoothly, the guests had a fantastic time, I now have memories that will last a lifetime, and this was all because I had help taking some wedding responsibilities off my shoulders, I'm so glad I hired Tiffany! Tiffany went over and beyond the call of duty and at a very fair price. Whether you hire her as a day of coordinator or hire her for full service wedding planning (or to plan any type of event), do yourself a favor and put her in your top consideration list. I would hire her again if I could. I will certainly be recommending her to my friends and family. And if you hire her, Im sure you will eventually do the same. Kudos Tiffany for the excellent work! Written by a very happy bride :)
Elizabeth was absolutely amazing! We hired her two month before our wedding and are sooo glad we did. From the first day we met we knew she was a perfect fit for us. During our first meeting she asked us a whole list of questions, some of which we hadn't even thought of, just to get to get a feel for what we had done so far and what we would need help on, it was a really great first impression. Elizabeth was there with us when our venue tried to jack up the prices of everything a month before the wedding. She emailed a not so pleasant catering manager and made sure every single detail was taken care of, she even got them to throw in a complimentary hot chocolate at our beverage station. She brought so much wedding experience and it really helped guide and shape our wedding. She took care of the little details that someone who has never been married would surely miss. She set up all of our decor day of and was main contact person for any and all things. I got to sit back and enjoy getting ready with my bridesmaids instead of running around making sure everything was perfect. Elizabeth had it handled and she decorated exactly as we discussed if not better! She threw in some touches I didn't even think of! When we were missing something or a decoration wasn't working she knew how to troubleshoot and make it work, which took an enormous amount of pressure on my husband and family. All of our guest had nothing but good this to say about Elizabeth. She was great about directing and moving people where they needed to go with a smile on her face. Never being impolite or pushy, but firm enough so people actually listened. At the end of the night we got to say our good byes and ride off into the sunset. While she coordinated with our family and bridal party and made sure everything was packed, cleaned, and out of the venue right on time. The day after the wedding she called and checked in on us to make sure everything was ok. Elizabeth went above and beyond with us and we are so glad we hired her. I would recommend her to anyone as a day of coordinator or full service wedding planner, she was an absolute dream!
I highly recommend AR wedding planners! We debated whether we needed a day-of coordinator, but in the end, due to a couple logistical challenges we decided to go for it. In hindsight I can’t imagine doing it any other way. Rebecca was incredible. Not only did she give me peace of mind by tackling those logistical challenges head-on, she was also extremely proactive. I knew I was in excellent hands from the very beginning. She asked all the right questions and ensured we had all the necessary information at our fingertips at exactly the right moments. She is very professional and handled any issues that came up with ease. Finally, she’s fun! She ensured we enjoyed our day completely stress and hassle-free, all while blending in seamlessly with friends and family. Thank you, Rebecca for being a part of our special day. We are so grateful for your help and would happily recommend you to anyone!
They say a wedding is only as good as the people who plan it. We absolutely LOVED working with Rubal at Events by Rubal!!!! We have the Rubal to thank for the most beautiful, seamless and perfect day in our lives! From the moment we hired Rubal, we felt not one ounce of stress or worry for our wedding day. Who knew wedding planning could be so fun? Rubal is the sweetest, most creative, talented and organized person and it genuinely shows through her amazing events. She was there every single step of the way from the concept and design of the wedding, helping us find amazing vendors, organizing and facilitating all vendor meetings, and providing us with professional guidance in a non-obtrusive and tasteful way. With my husband and I both working full time jobs, she made planning SO easy and stress free. Our wedding was absolutely stunning and flawlessly executed and it we owe it all to Rubal's dedication to ensure that we had and ENJOYED the wedding of our dreams. We received overwhelming compliments on not only the design details, but how smooth, elegant and effortless the wedding day was. It was the best decision we could have ever made to hire Rubal to plan our wedding and feel so lucky to have worked her. Rubal we love you! - A+M
It was a pleasure working with Courtney,very professional and responsive to all of our questions and concerns. She did an amazing job being our coordinator for the month and day of our wedding, we were on time and everything went smooth on our wedding day, couldn't have done it without her!
They were very helpful the day of my wedding. Roddy is a good manager who delegates his team well and was very upfront and honest about what was provided at the quote.
Christa handled everything I asked her to the day of my wedding. There were many complexities and moving parts because I had a reception and an after party. Christa handled both amazingly well. We met a few times before and spoke on the phone throughout my engagement. I was in great hands with Christa. She had many ideas and helped make my reception beautiful!
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!!
Loved working with Sassy Diva! The floral design on my wedding day definitely exceeded all of my exceptions. Can't thank you enough, Beth!
Heidi and Ashton were the perfect day-of wedding coordinators. When we arrived at the site on our wedding day, everything was beautifully set up as if by magic. Gracefully and unobtrusively, they made everything happen. They arranged flowers, set up the wedding altar, wrangled vendors, and guided guests through the day’s various phases (ceremony, reception, toasts). They even served us cake and champagne. Our guests remarked on how “effortless” the wedding seemed; this is largely due to Birminkeley’s hard work! Birminkeley also helped plan our wedding. They visited the venue with us and talked us through everything from where to seat the guests to how many tablecloths to order. Later, they helped us search for wedding vendors. Despite our tight timeline (~2 months), they found us a wonderful photographer, rental company, and makeup artist. They were persistent and tenacious in making sure the vendors would adhere to our venue’s strict requirements. In addition to being very capable, flexible, and affordable, Heidi and Ashton are very pleasant to work with. Their calmness and perseverance helped us get through a very stressful time!
Danny is very enthusiastic. He has a vibrant personality and easy to talk to. He really listens and executes the ideas you present to him. He's dependable and reliable. He did some work for me for my best friends wedding and it came out totally amazing!
DJ DannyJ was spinning music all night for a friends wedding I attended. He's not your typical DJ! Which is GOOD!! Enthusiastic, energetic and most important works hard making sure everyone's enjoying themselves.
