Professional, experienced, and very competent. What you expect, what you need, and what you deserve for your wedding or event. In our initial consultation with 3 Little Birds Event Planning we described what we were thinking and our budget, and not to mention our compressed timeline. 3 Little Birds Event Planning was upfront about the challenges of the timeline, but expressed confidence that it could be done. Venue and vendor options were presented to meet our budget as well as options and ideas that were outside our budget should we want to incorporate additional things. Planning any project and event takes a very organized, detail oriented, experienced and well connected planner/company. But when it comes to a wedding, you only have one chance, there are no do overs, and you need someone who will make everything happen. Jessica Smith (3 Little Birds Event Planning) is all of the above and more. They can handle all of the business aspects (contracts, vendors, schedules, timelines, permits, etch, etc), but she also has an artistic eye and design style that provided such amazing ideas and direction to enhance and implement our theme. Trust me the small details that you may not think about make a HUGE difference. With my work schedule so hectic it was impossible for me get decorations or run around doing errands. Having a full service planner was not only helpful it was necessary. The money I would have lost from missed work, by far covered the difference between a day of event planner and full service planner. My recommendation is to go with the full service planner... it gives you the opportunity to have your event and vision grow organically as you meet and continually consult with your planner... not to mention the time and headaches your save yourself, trust me you will thank yourself for it. 3 Little Birds Event Planning is established and has many vendor connections (Florists, DJ, Photographers, Catering, Venues, Decorations, etc., etc.). What I really like is the fact that 3 Little Birds/Jessica Smith doesnât force or pressure you to use her vendors. We vetted her vendors and chose to go with some of them, and some we didn't. All the vendors she recommended are professional and established and we were very pleased with the vendors she recommended. The vendors we didnât use were not because of anything deficient, but rather because we had existing industry contacts and already knew great photographers and videographers. 3 Little Birds worked with the vendors they provided as well as the one we selected independently and brought everything together seamlessly. On the big day, things could not have gone any smoother. I was impressed, as were all of the guests. I was able to be present in the moment and truly enjoy our special day. All I can say is thank you, it was a true storybook/fairytale wedding.
I decided to look for a caterer for my Mom's celebration of life and my internet search lead me to Thumbtack. After inputting my needs I quickly received a response back from Tonya at Sierra Madre Catering with a detailed quote and attached menu. When I called to speak with Tonya I immediately got a good vibe from her voice. She seemed excited and eager to help plan our event and made me feel comfortable that everything would be taken care of. I am so thankful I decided to use Sierra Madre for my event. We ordered appetizers and desserts and they arrived and set everything up, brought their own trash cans and kept the tables clean as people were done eating. The staff was professional and nice and their food was DELICIOUS! Many of our guests gave feedback that the food was great and they even ran out of business cards because a lot of people were interested in having their info. At such a difficult time with the passing of a loved one, these details are important but not ones you want to worry about yourselves and Tonya and Sierra Madre staff took that burden off my shoulders and I am so thankful for that. I will recommend them to anyone in need of a caterer for any event and if I could give more than 5 stars I most definitely would!! Thank you Tonya and Sierra Madre Catering!!
KMR provided Cuban style appetizers for a Latin music concert. This was a charity event, and they helped subsidize a significant portion of the cost. Their staff delivered the food and were accommodating enough to help set up at the church, and also offered to stay and help serve. Please thank their representative and give her my gratitude. The food was excellent. I gave them an acknowledgement in the concert program. Several people asked me how to reach your organization in the future to buy some of your food. I listed their website in the program. I thank KMR for donating their portion of the food.
The Special Event Genie (Ricki) is truly passionate about giving her clients a great wedding. She is very thorough in her planning of events and she provides custom planning tools for her clients. She put together a very thorough and organized time line for our event which helped insure that everything ran smoothly and on time. She has a lot of experience in coordinating weddings so she was very helpful in identifying potential pitfalls that we had not thought of. She attended multiple planning meetings, facilitated our rehearsal at the venue, coordinated all vendors and led the set-up of our wedding with assistance from family and friends. We had an amazing wedding and we couldn't be happier with the way things turned out. Thanks Ricki!
Terry was nothing shy of amazing. My flowers were breathtaking and totally stood up to the heat and the ocean breeze. And most of all Terry dealt with my crazy ideas and stepped in to help on the day of the wedding with things that were outside of her job description. Could not have done it without her.
Michelle was AMAZING and so easy to work with. She communicated with us throughout our entire event planning process. She was beyond patient, and really came through the day of when our caterer and food truck had forgotten some key items - and she drove out to pick them up! We couldn't have asked for a better event coordinator and highly recommend!
Let me start by saying, most men think that they have it all figured out when it comes to women and dating. I know! I am one of those men. As a hopeless romantic myself, I never thought that I would benefit from a marriage proposal, date, and event planning company. I mean, what can they possibly show me that I haven't already thought of myself; little did I know I was in for a surprise. The ladies at OLF took care of everything for me. I mean the dinner location they chose was fantastic, they even gave me pointers on what wine to order with our steak, which was a big plus for me because it impressed my girlfriend that I was knowledgeable about a variety of wines. Prior to dinner they suggested that I take her on a short stroll where we ended up by a wall with LOVE written all over it, she was taking back by that and thought the wall was adorable. More brownie points for me. Thanks OLF. Aaaaaaaand to top it off, they had disguised photographer follow us throughout our date that snapped so many random pictures of us while we were out. I can honestly say that I was impressed with their planning and so was my girlfriend. I would recommend this company to men and women with experience on all dating levels, if they can blow my mind with their planning, imagine what they can do for YOU!
BEST EVENT PLANNER, HANDS DOWN!!!! I hired Ingrid and her team last minute for decorations and event planning for a work party. By far, the best decision I've ever made. My wedding is in August, and I've went along and hired her for that event as well. She's proficient, efficient, and a visionary!! Her ideas are so thoughtful and personally organized! I am so impressed with her work and her expertise. She never ceased to amaze me. I got so many compliments on her flower arrangements and decorations that for so perfectly with the theme. I can't wait to see what she's got up her sleeve for my wedding in August. Also, this wasn't the first time I've hired Ingrid for an event. I hired her back in November 2015 for my MIL 50th birthday party. Her husband and herself, arrived much earlier for setup and made sure everything was the way we wanted it to look, before hey left the scene. They are so professional and such hard workers. I got a ton of compliments on their work that our family friend also hired her for her services for their wedding too! I will always refer Ingrid, without a doubt! She's my go-to person since Nov 2015.
This was the first time I worked Mari at 8 D.A.Y.S EVENTS and I noticed that she was very professional, thorough, and on top of every detail. She coordinated everything in terms of production - lighting, sound, DJ, and catering for the party. The presentation of the food was phenomenal and tasty. I was HIGHLY impressed with the additional furniture and lighting she brought in that turned the house into an upscale hot spot! Her level of expertise in planning the whole event was phenomenal. I feel she went above and beyond her inner call of event planning!
E&M Designs run an event planning service and I hired them to provide the flowers and cake at my wedding. Working with them was very easy, they were available via text, phone and email and responses were prompt. I chose them because I was on a very tight budget and they gave me a significantly lower quote than any other vendors I contacted - for the level of service they provide I thought the price exceptionally reasonable! The flowers were delivered in great condition and looked exactly as discussed; however the highlight was the cake. Eimee made me a 3 tier lemon wedding cake that was both beautiful and delicious! All of my guests said it was the best cake they've ever had - moist, delicious, and with amazing frosting!
I was able to concentrate on other things while lexilou events took care of the decorations. They painted and assembled all my centerpieces for the baby shower and coordinated the event the day of.
Jessell and her assistant are the absolute DREAM TEAM! If you want a worry-free event, I would highly recommend their services without any hesitation. I recently had and an out-of-state wedding that Perfectly Event Planning coordinated for me. They took care of every detail beyond my expectations and thought of things to pre-plan or organize that I never ever would have thought of that made even the smallest detail of my big day come off without a hitch! Not only are they organized and extremely detailed oriented, they are very gracious in taking requests I hoped for and they made great suggestions based on their experiences. They were an overall pleasure to be with on my special day too! Guests even commented on how well they worked together and made the evening flow perfectly. You will not be disappointed!
Sanaz is a ROCK :) I spent almost one year of wedding planning with Events By Sanaz. So now that the wedding has passed, I miss them! Working with Sanaz & Nancy was intense, but in a good way. From the beginning she made sure to cover every single thing she could think of. We had a total of about 3 meetings in person with her. They were quite long and tiring, but every bit of it was important. For the day-of coordinating, that's the part I was most impressed with. Not only did we spend nearly a year of planning the day out, but she brought it all to life on our wedding day.
To Whom It May Concern, In the midst of my two month Indie-GoGo fundraiser to raise money for my first solo album, I realized I needed some help. Leah was recommended to me by one of my best friends, and she exceeded all of my expectations. Several of my attempts at driving traffic to my site and generating interest fell short, but Leah was able to help me organize my ideas and bring the fundraiser home. We met for an hour long consultation, and she was more than willing to help answer questions along the way. Several of Leahs strategies included thanking those who have thus far given in both public and private ways, using all social platforms to drive traffic to the fundraising site, and to increase volume of posts at crucial times during the campaign. My only regret is that I did not meet with Leah before my campaign began so I could have implemented her strategies from the beginning. Thanks to Leah, I was able to raise over 10,000.00. She was an invaluable part of my campaign and gave me the tools to make the most of my resources and time. She cut my learning curve in half! I highly recommend her for any job related to fundraising and campaign organization. Sincerely, Harry Ostrem
Iris did so much for us to make this our best holiday event to date. It was a breeze on my part, she did all of the planning, finding the DJ and venue. We worked together on menu items, and were able to taste test in advance. The salmon was amazing, as was the tri-tip. Iris is also a truly sweet person, and I enjoyed planning this event with her very much. She was very accommodating, and delivered as promised. Thank you! I would highly recommend her for your event planning.
Wow! I had a tall order: plan and execute a corporate team building event in three days. Rachel made it happen, and made it successful and fun. From the get go, Rachel's positivity and creativity set the tone for success. She came in saying "We can...and here's how...and here's what will make it better." She was professional and flexible. She listened well and brought in ideas based on what we really wanted. Day of the event, everything was smooth. All the things that needed to happen just happened. Our event was fun and successful and exactly what we envisioned. I highly recommend Rachel and Chain of Events!
Any idea, colors, specific theme, etc, that you give me, "I will definitely accommodate what you want! Even if you had no time to come up with ideas, (because I know planning for an event/party can take up almost all of your time) I can guarantee you, I will make something, out of nothing!
I create fashion, art and music events for high-end companies all over LA and the world. I work for high-end artists in the fashion and music industry.
