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 👍🏻

We had an excellent experience. We used bleu catering for a birthday party of about 20. The price was reasonable for the quality and quantity of food. Very responsive to our requests and worked with our budget. I would use them again for an event.

Their guys showed up early and set up quick. Ramiro dealt with all the changes I had with no problem. If I am in the area again for a party set up, I will definitely use these guys again.

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!

Oh my goodness Christina is EXCEPTIONAL! The second I met her I felt so stress free. This is huge for a bride to be! She is so professional and so knowledgeable. I barely had to even explain what I wanted and she knew right away. She came to the venue the day before and went through every detail with me, took notes and assured me not to worry. All my sister and I do is worry but after we met with Christina we both looked and each other sand said WOW! The day of her and her partner Nick were PERFECTION! I walked into my venue and it was stunning! They were so organized, helpful, accommodating and fun! Christina was in charge of all the vendors arrivals, set up and payments. She managed the timeline, the bridal party and the set up of the ceremony and reception hall. Through all that she found the time to bring me water!!! Which literally saved my life because it was an extremely hot day. She stayed till all the guests were gone to make sure everything was organized and ready to go. I would recommend to her to everyone! You can just tell she is so passionate, so professional and such a wonderful person! Thank you so much for everything Christina! I can't believe I can actually say that nothing went wrong on my wedding day!

I booked Annemarie for my wedding planning services and I am so thrilled I did! I knew I needed the help and I could have NEVER have done it without her! She was so organized, insanely helpful to my family and I, fun, and such a pleasure to work with. Besides keeping me on a schedule and making sure I was having fun instead of stressing on what I needed to do next , she would approach me and let me know ‘it was time’. She made all the steps to our wedding flow flawlessly (food service, toast, dance, photos, dessert, bouquet toss). If it wasn’t for her I would have been delegating and stressing my own husband and wedding party to make sure everyone else had fun. Instead I got to actually enjoy everything and have fun myself ! Priceless! She even talked me out of crying as I was about to walk down the aisle, which was a major goal of mine! AMAZING! She listened to my opinions and desires and offered advice when I needed and asked for it. She made sure I ate, which is impossible to do at your wedding. She kept everything like clockwork and with so much care and communication. I am so grateful for this woman! You are in good hands!

I first met Andrea through our local charity running community. Since then, I have attended several events coordinated by Andrea and Events By Abel. She quickly become the unofficial social coordinator for our running group! From spectacularly detailed holiday parties to intimate progressive dinners to weddings for 100+ people, she has had her hand in countless events and special moments that I think back on and smile. That's exactly what you want when you hire someone to plan or coordinate an event for you. To take the stress out of the day and add extra details that you didn't realize would make the event that much more special. Events By Abel is the perfect choice if you are looking for someone to provide that at your next event. I would definitely recommend hiring Andrea for your next special event!

Chef Keith was extremely accommodating and the food was outstanding. We had a party of 50 people and everyone raved about the shish-kabobs and red beans and rice. Chef Keith's service made our party a great success. He's definitely going to cater our next event.

I had the pleasure of meeting Diamant at a wedding that my company was providing hair and makeup for. She happened to be a bridesmaid and the bride's florist!! Diamant had made custom floral hair pieces for the bridal party and I was just blown away by how beautiful they were. She was hard working and professional and delivered the the bouquets had a natural but elegant feel to them! I like Diamant's work so much that I asked her to join a stylized photoshoot for a magazine that I was working on and yet again she delivered GORGEOUS floral arrangements that were just breath-taking. I would highly recommend Blue Ladder for any bride-to-be who is looking for attention to detail and a beautiful aesthetic.

A few months back my wife and I wanted to have a baby shower for our arriving little boy. The thing was we didn't want to miss anything about it especially since it was our first, so we hired Priscilla of Plan by Design Events. She took my wifes idea of an outdoor theme and completely made it extravagant. The vision we had in our mind was outdoor themed with a couple of games and maybe even a table for the guys to hang out and drink. She took it to a whole new level and set us up at Rancho Penasquitos Adobe House and the space was magnificent! The tables were these large refinished farm tables, the space was used for interactive games for the guys to play ring toss, jump houses (yea I'm a big kid), drinking games and Cornhole. It was awesome! She even managed to set up a complete bar for me to display my Moscow mule mugs as party favors and serve drinks to my guests or be a place to just lounge out. As for my wife she was stunned at the amount of detail that when into color coordination for the event and the centerpieces. Sticking with a spring and rejuvenation experience, Priscilla found a balance between what we wanted and what she and her creative team produced that really exceeded our expectations. She was also really easy to work with, helping us to book the day for the event at the Adobe house, book a taqueria for some awesome tacos, and even booking a churro vendor to serve fresh warm churros. I loved seeing my guests really pleased with the way it turned out, all without breaking the bank. I would definitely recommend Plan by Design Events to anyone and everyone! Whether it's an extravagant event or something as seemingly simple as a baby shower, she will transform your vision into a reality you could have never imagined. Absolutely beautiful work!

I did business with DJ Charlie twice. He was my wedding DJ and MC in September and very recently he was hired to provide up lighting and dance floor lighting at my brother’s birthday party. The only reason he wasn’t a DJ there is because it was on a short notice and Charlie had already been booked. My family, my coworkers and my friends were very happy both times. Charlie knows what he’s doing and he is more than just a DJ. He knows how to work with all kinds of people to make them happy and avoid any possible conflicts or misunderstandings. He is also an excellent MC and at our wedding he made sure everyone knew what was happening or was about to happen and when. I’ve never seen so many people pleased with the music and dancing for so long as it was at our wedding. All of Charlie’s lights look really good; otherwise, we wouldn’t have rented them again. I’m very happy I finally found a DJ who gives his advice but always listens to me and who I can trust. Charlie was just hired to be a DJ at my friend’s wedding next summer. Gary

All the praise I can give doesn't do Chef Renee and her staff justice for the outstanding experience they provided for our staff. They served 1000 ravenous people some of the most amazing food without missing a beat. I was of course stressed and nervous about putting together such a huge event but I was immediately put at ease by the professionalism, organization and amazing food at the tasting. This was the best holiday party we've had in the 15 years that i've been with the company. If you are looking for a company that goes the extra mile for their clients then this is it. Chef Renee and her staff made us feel like family and they put their hearts and souls in every detail from the decor to the food. Vera McDonald

Pret (Monique) catered a dinner party for my Board of Directors recently with a delicious meal. Monique made everything so easy for me, thought of every detail! It was a huge relief for me to just "host" this lovely evening, with Pret doing all of the work! Fabulous pasta and amazing layered dessert!!

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.
