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!!
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
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.
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!
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!
This is the best service we hired for the wedding! I would recommend hiring them for wedding planning or for a day of coordinator like we did. Dianne and Megan handled all of the emergencies that came up the day of the wedding and there are always a few like calling Bevmo and handling when the keg didn't work, figuring out how to get into the brides room where the flowers were when she lost her key and was out taking her photos, going to the store to pick up a few missed items, making sure wedding party was taken care of, literally pulling out safety pins and scissors from her pockets when needed, setting up the candy buffet service and refilling it, and I could go on and on. My son's vision for his wedding was executed because of this service. Seeing the smiles on the bride and grooms face is so worth paying for this service. I would recommend them to anyone and am proud to call them my newest friends. BIG WOW service providers! Can't recommend them enough!
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!
Joana Debar is Wondertastic, she not only shows up early but she goes way out of her way to ask how how can i help and plan and make all the details shine, but she then creates a vibe thats nothing short of magical!! literaly 15 people at the party said i wouldnt even think to hire some one other then her, every single person at the party said who is she!? she is so nice Kind,gracious,fun, and real! wich in this town is tufff she goes out of her way to make everything perfect for your event she also set up tables chairs and cleaned up fast. She has the whole package the personality the flare and her drinks were Damn GOOD!! Youd be a damn fool to not hire her!! Thanks Again Joana !!!
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!
I have done a number of events with the help of Livelyhood LLC. Tamara Hood brings added value to any great idea, helps drive the project and event to its best level. She is accessible, proactive, detailed, clearly knows events from multiple professional perspectives, and also has a great attitude while working. I highly recommend Livelyhood LLC for ANYthing you’re thinking of!
Hasn't happened yet.
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.
Getting Susan as our wedding day of coordinator was one of the best decisions we made. At first we were unsure about even needing someone since we had many offers of help from families and friends for the day of, and we had already booked most of our vendors by ourselves. Little did we know how many details we had not considered until we met with Susan to discuss the wedding day. She was so organized and very attentive to detail. She had an itemized list of all the wedding decorations, worked with us and our vendors to get our timeline nailed, and was in constant contact with us and making sure we were still getting our boxes checked. We had a death in the immediate family a few weeks before the wedding, and Susan went beyond her duties of day of coordinator to help us during that time, offering support and advice. We also lived about an hour away from the wedding venue and even further from her but she was always accommodating. We had our wedding at the Odyssey Restaurant and it was a very tight schedule but Susan was able to work her magic and get everything set up perfectly for the ceremony and reception (decorations, party favors, candy bar, etc) with the limited amount of time that the restaurant allowed. It was wonderful having Susan be a part of our day and if we could have, we would have chosen her as our wedding planner throughout the whole process from the beginning. We would definitely recommend Susan to our friends and family for any event planning.
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.
I had the pleasure of working with Arsineh for a charity fundraiser event in Los Angeles. She is very passionate about catering to her clients' needs and creating a successful experience. She is diligent about over delivering what is expected of her. I truly admire her drive. I was so inspired that I wrote an article about her and AB Weddings & Special Events. It is a true honor to know such an amazing soul.
Creations by CB Events did a phenomenal job on our wedding! I am someone that doesn't enjoy the planning process one bit and Connie took it right out of my hands into hers. She took the stress level down completely and although we are a pretty simple and laid back couple she took all of our wishes and wants and exceeded our expectations. We used CB Events for all; decorations, party planning and event coordinating (basically everything! haha). Our event was at an outside venue (The Red Gates of covina; a private venue exclusive to Creations by CB Events) and everyone loved it. With the intimate atmosphere along with the inviting array of eclectic style our wedding was definitely a night everyone will remember (which is what the whole point is right?). Needless to say i would recommend "Creations by CB Events" to ANYONE! Every penny was worth it. Thank you Connie!! -Nicole & Eddie
Courtney and her team at Simply Radiant Events are AMAZING. We booked Simply Radiant Events for our wedding day coordinator as we had planned our wedding ourselves and really just wanted someone there to help things run smoothly. We found Courtney on thumbtack as we were a couple on a budget. Her prices are so fair and she really is the best. We had our first chat via phone and the whole vibe was just perfect. We had a Nerd Chic wedding and we needed someone who could see our fun little touches and still set a classic tone for the event. Courtney and her team hit it out of the park! She accompanied us on a full walk through with our reception venue and helped us navigate a few tricky spots with the caterer and baker. She helped us figure out day of timeline, coordinated the processional into the ceremony, worked flawlessly with both our church and reception venue, and provided vendor suggestions while being just so reassuring and sweet. She is quick to answer emails and is super open with communication. There were no hiccups at all on our wedding day and we are just so glad we had Courtney and Simply Radiant Events! 10/10 would hire her again for any event planning needs we may have in the future.
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!
The party was for my 60 th birthday and my husband worked with the event planner Lisa Wilkinson, they worked together for about 2 months and he described her as easy to work with and a good eye for detail...the decorating in the room was beautiful and elegant, Lisa worked with a caterer and the food was delicious..she arrived early to set up and stayed through the evening to attend to any requests. The overall experience was professional and friendly, and look forward to our next event with Miss Wilkinson.
