I couldn’t be more pleased to provide this review for Saundra, as she truly was amazing to work with for my wedding. I hired Saundra as a day-of coordinator, which includes a few meetings leading up to the event. (We met by phone, as I was planning my wedding from across the country.) Saundra helped me to keep all the details in line as we approached the wedding, and communicated efficiently through email and phone calls to ensure she had all the information she needed to keep the day running smoothly, including copies of contracts and a timeline for the day’s events. A few family members had included some things in their speeches that I had asked them to omit, but because Saundra asked for speeches to be sent in advance, she was able to review them and tactfully guide the speakers toward an acceptable outcome. She listened closely to our desires, and really kept the wedding focused on the things we wanted. My wedding was held at a private (and beautiful!) home, and on the day, I’ve since learned that there were a few glitches, including people moving things from our staging area to other places in the home, causing Saundra additional work. The thing that is most impressive to me about that added stress was that I had no idea it was happening. Saundra stayed cool and collected, and handled each situation on her own, which allowed my husband and me to enjoy ourselves, spend time with our guests, and focus on eachother. Leading up to the wedding, I told my fiancé multiple times that hiring Saundra was the best wedding decision I could have made. After all is said and done, I’m certain our day wouldn’t have been the same without her. She worked hard, and all we had to do was have fun! All the details were in place, and I had no worry because I knew she was taking care of everything. Thank you again, Saundra, for being so supportive and helping to create a beautiful day for my husband and me, and all of our guests!

I was just recently involved in a wedding where I was responsible for finding a reliable bartender. I was stressed, worried and nervous that I wouldn't find a proper fit...and then I came across Michael. I had a good vibe from the get-go and I was so incredibly pleased with his knock-out performance!!! Michael is amazing, I sincerely cannot say enough nice things about him. Prompt, efficient, humorous, diligent and kind are all easy attributes to describe Michael, but this man goes above and beyond. Michael has an incredible work ethic, he aided in set up/tear down and EVERYTHING in between. He is courteous even if others are not, and I found him to be extremely professional. He has a great way about him and really relates to all kinds of folks which is so wonderful. Michael truly delivered 100% and he made the night memorable. This guy is a work horse, and his goal is to make things run smoothly. If you need someone who is a true professional, here is your man! I would hire him for any and every single upcoming event, you will not be disappointed!!

I hired Tiffany as a "day of" wedding coordinator. From the start Tiffany kept in touch with me, from clarifying all that needed to be done to what time I needed her and where. She was very organized, on time and did a great job with decorating the venue and setting up. She contacted my vendors within the week of my wedding, allowing me to not have to worry about things. On top of it all, she was extremely kind, which I really appreciated during a stressful time. I would recommend her to anyone needing a hand with wedding planning.

She was very laid back and I mean this in a good way. I like to be in control when planning my wedding or events and she made sure to listen and make sure all my visions and choices were taken care of! At our wedding I didn't feel stressed at all and having her took a lot of potential stress off my shoulders. She was extremely helpful and good at communicating with me. Thanks !

Anna Marie did an excellent job coordinating our wedding. She chatted with us several times before the big day, and helped us think through many of the details of the event. On our wedding day she arrived and immediately got down to business arranging flowers, setting things up, and running interference with other vendors. She handled everything flawlessly and made sure we were taken care of all night long. It was lovely knowing that if anything came up Anna Marie would handle it so we could just relax and have fun. I couldn't recommend her highly enough!

My husband and I were just married and Matt planned our wedding reception. He did a fantastic job - the event was perfect! Matt was knowledgeable and really easy to work with. His recommendations were spot on. My husband and I took forever with some decisions and Matt was good about following up with us as well as taking last minute requests. Definitely highly recommend!

Actually I didn't meet the LadyMarry coordinator and florist, until the rehearsal day, because I was planning my wedding remotely in New York. They are very responsive and patient to my endless questions, and did a great job about organizing the rehearsal and communicating with the other vendors. I always saw Melissa and Donna running around. Hiring you was the best decision I made for my wedding. Thank you!

We were extremely happy with Taneva Events. We wanted a simple but elegant wedding in Hawaii and Velina at Taneva Events provided that and more for us. She worked with us on everything from the smallest detail on the dinner napkins to working with vendors on logistical details, setup on the day of the wedding and ensuring our day was perfect. We did not have a clear idea of what we wanted to do for our wedding besides the fact that we wanted to keep it simple and take advantage of the natural beauty of the setting. Velina was really helpful from the start, brainstorming ideas with us, and making suggestions for the decor that we would have never thought of on our won. We did not want traditional flower centerpieces, and Velina was able to accommodate us by creating beautiful pineapple centerpieces, and tied them all together with the runner, candles, handmade napkins, and pedestals that she placed the pineapples on. Everybody complemented the decor and the bridal bouquet that she created from traditional Hawaiian flowers. We could not have had such a beautiful and smooth day without Velina's help. Planning for a wedding is always stressful, but Velina eased a lot of our stress and was always a pleasure to work with.

Erika (Cast Your Cares Event Planning) is a true professional planner and an excellent event coordinator. Rosa and I chose Erika to coordinate our wedding and although it was the biggest wedding in town, it certainly had it's challenges and Ms. Erika handled everyone of them like a pro. We could not have been happier with Erika and her work with us and our vendors. Her greatest asset was no more evident and very much on display, the day of our wedding. Wow... Erika was spot on from start to finish, keeping all those involved with our special day, on time and together. From getting my bride's hair and makeup finished (with photos!) and into the limo to the church ON TIME, to making sure all of our guests were enjoying the reception (photos of us at each table), and then keeping us on time leaving the reception and off to our life as husband and wife. Just a well done job all around. I would like to complement Erika on her beautiful decorations for the reception (tables, cake tables, etc,) and her expert management the guest seating chart (which is not and easy chore) .... Rosa and I were so impressed with Erika's work coordinating our wedding, we do plan to chose Cast Your Cares again with upcoming professional and special events (milestone birthdays and charity functions). Thanks again Erika! You are a dream to work with and you helped us truly enjoy our very special day! Rosa and Pete Mouwen

Working with Krista for our wedding was such a fabulous and easy experience. She was available to answer questions and bounce ideas off with really quick response times. Having a destination wedding was a little bit of a challenge logistically, but Krista was great in making sure everything we needed was ready to go and nothing left behind! The flowers came out perfect - I loved being able to show her ideas of what we wanted and she nailed it! Our guests thought the centerpieces and bouquets were just beautiful! We were so happy with Krista's services! If we got married again, we would definitely use Krista just so we could have peace of mind knowing everything would be perfect.

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!!

"I had the pleasure of working with Charles in an effort to put together a beautiful, elegant ceremony for my brother's wedding. Although I am not a wedding planner myself, I was looking for someone who I could consult for ideas and suggestions since they didn't have the budget for a professional wedding coordinator. I reached out to a number of different coordinators and explained my situation, and Charles was one of the few that was open and willing to work with me and offer professional advice. As the wedding day approached, I consulted Charles for ideas and explained what exactly the bride and groom were looking for and the budget they had. With that in mind, Charles was able to offer a number of great ideas and suggestions for their special day that were within budget and helped create an amazing, memorable day for the bride, groom, and all their guests. Although we were unable to have Charles there the day of the event, I am positive that it could have only been better had we been able to have him there with his professional eye. I would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone who needs anything as simple as suggestions/professional advice or anything as big as a wedding planner to hand the reigns over to."

Kendra planned 2 baby showers for me and a blessingway. Both were extremely memorable and special. She has an eye for detail and will capture the look you're going for and make it even better. She is reliable, and extremely organized. I had a hard time expressing a vision for what I wanted, but she has a way of connecting with you, getting to know your style and then making it come to life. I am so happy we had Kendra to plan these things for us! Oh and also, if you're kind of all over the place and scatter brained like me, Kendra is your girl! She is super calm nothing stresses her out.

My wife and I had thought we'd do our own wedding planning. We'd found our venue and vendors on our own; how hard could the finishing touches be? Especially for the small, simple event we envisioned? In hindsight, we'd accomplished only the easiest parts of the process, and without Diana and Tammy's help I don't know how we would have had the wonderful, stress-free event that we did. While we hired them as day-of-coordinators, they provided much more than day-of services, taking over vendor interactions months in advance of the actual event, actively helping to plan table layouts and other details, and in weekly video chats they provided organization and discipline that kept my wife and I on-task. There's so much work behind even a "simple" wedding that we hadn't even thought about, but Diana and Tammy guided us through it all. They were lifesavers; our wedding day was everything we'd hoped that it would be, and Diana and Tammy were absolutely critical to making it happen.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
