Mike catered an event for our group at Fallbrook Winery last Sunday and did a fantastic job! We took 42 people from our Wine Club here in Orange County down to the winery and he catered lunch. The food was fantastic and paired very well with the Fallbrook wines, the price was great and Mike was very easy to work with. Highly recommend him and Gourmet Your Way, he'll be the first one I call for our next event!

Megan and her team go above and beyond to create a unique and personal experience for they clients. I have seen them in action on multiple occasions, and they do FAR MORE than just floral design. They are able to offer complete event coordination, wait staff, all sorts of goodies. They are prompt, courteous, efficient, and tireless in their efforts. They are unwavering in their commitment to excellence and work with a gracious, upbeat, and professional demeanor. As a business owner myself, I've worked with hundreds of planners and florists (never the two in one though!), and can honestly say I would hire Megan for my own events, IN A HEARTBEAT. Do not hesitate. If you found her, hire her! You're in INCREDIBLE hands!

I hired the queen Elsa entertainment for my daughters 8th birthday party of frozen and the party was a hit. The kids loved the face painting while she sang songs ,they enjoyed the magic show and balloon animals. She was great and on time!! I would definitely recommend to anyone for there event/party. Going to other people's party who had entertainment similar she by far the was best and was worth it the money I paid😁 would definitely recommend 👍🏻

Jessica is truly awesome, if you really want your wedding to be awesome, hire Jessica. Imagine Winston Wolf from Pulp Fiction as a blonde and more approachable. She gets things done and really solves problems sometimes even before you've thought of them. She is always on time, and is always aware of the time and what should be happening at any given moment with the wedding party and vendors. I simply can't imagine how our day would've went without Jessica quarterbacking the event. Due to ours and her schedule we didn't get to meet face to face until the day before our wedding for rehearsal. This had us a little uneasy but it really did not matter as immediately upon meeting her we knew she was the right person. Her professionalism, personality, and experience went to work as soon as she stepped out of her car. She asked us how we were getting on with preparations and if we needed any last minute items and asked about any concerns. She listened to everything we said and actually started solving our concerns right away. I had a worry about the parking situation for the wedding as we didn't want any cars in photos but we had to keep the gates open. She managed to get a sign made to let the guest and cab drivers know where to park or drop guests off, and it really worked well. When she met the wedding party she gauged what type of crowd we were and made sure everyone felt comfortable to ask her for anything, even let my groomsmen know if we run out of pre gaming beers she'd be happy to make the run to the store. On the big day she went to work immediately, she did everything we asked of her and more! She ensured my wife and I and our parents were fed first and our cups were always, always full. I always thought the coordinator was suppose to pull the strings and be invisible on the day. I thought this because of weddings I've recently attended as a guest. However Jessica was always there and available, everyone in our wedding party and even guests felt like they could approach her and ask her anything. I truly preferred her presence and not hidden away behind the scenes. She genuinely looked happy to be there and it's obvious she loves her work. When you're planning a wedding everyone is quick to tell you what you will need and won't need and what you can get away with on the cheap. A day of coordinator should not be on that list. You can prepare and prepare but something unexpected comes up the day of or you forget to do something and you won't have the time or mental energy to deal with it properly yourself. This is where Jessica's awesomeness is invaluable. She will take care of all the loose ends and make certain the schedule runs smoothly, so you can actually enjoy your day and savour the experience of getting married!

Marie Stark was an absolute life saver at my wedding. To put things bluntly, I had a very difficult wedding party to work with and she was nothing but patient with them. Not only that, but she managed to turn my wedding dream into a reality. The entire process of working with Marie was incredibly calming which was refreshing considering how stressful wedding planning can be. I could not be happier with Marie as my wedding coordinator. She managed everything that I couldn’t on my wedding day and I am truly grateful for all of her efforts. I highly recommend her!

I hired Elvia and her assistant as party staff and they were so helpful in making sure our event ran smoothly and our guests were welcomed. There was no need to provide them with much direction as they took initiative to keep on top of many tasks as needed. They were also very friendly and pleasant to work with. I am so thankful for them--they were a tremendous help!

It was my 60 birthday party event. This is the first time I hired a bartender. Melinda arrived early to setup. I was really impressed with her professionalism, good sense of humor and her all around knowledge of bartending. My guest and family were happy and impressed with Melinda and the how nice and friendly she was with everyone. I was asked several times that where did I found her. This was the best decision I made about hiring Melinda for this party. She made this to be a awesome event, next time a have a big party I will hire Melinda again!

I find it to be a wonderful idea and services for children birthday parties. It sounds very interesting and excitting adding a new theme to birthday parties parents will love it. I have personally seen some of their costumes and are so well taken care of, clean, colorful, big and actually look like the characters. There is no other store like this in the Coachella Valley they are the only one where you can walk in order all your party needs and balloons for your party they do it all and they have free party planning can't beat that. Great Job Enchanted Memories!

Selina really helped to make our wedding reception absolutely perfect! She worked with our caterer, equipment rental company, and band to ensure the event went smoothly. She took charge of the decorations and improvised when needed. Everything looked beautiful and even better than we imagined. During the reception, she took great care to make sure we were well fed and always had a drink in hand. It was very relaxing for our guests and for us as well. I would highly recommend Selina to anyone planning a wedding or event of any kind. It was such a relief knowing that she had it all covered. Selina is very professional and a pleasure to work with.

    Working with Cassandra is a dream. As someone who also works on the client side of things myself. Cassandra always professional and personable. She is extremely detailed oriented and is always thinking of her clients needs. She always has a warm smile and a solution to any problem. It is wonderful to work with a planner that is there for you every step of the way. She always gets back to you quickly which is a huge plus. Love to work with her on any event at our Venue at Five Crowns & SideDoor. All her brides love her and so does the Venue!

    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.
