Lavonne was very flexible working with our small event. A small event of important people all with different food issues. She created an appetizer feast for meat eaters, vegetarians, gluten-free, dairy-free. Everyone was happy and well fed. She did a great job and we will use her again. I recommend Sage Bleu for your catering needs.

I originally found LV through her etsy account. At the time, she had many unique designs but not the theme I wanted. So I figured I’d ask her if she was able to make a whole mustache birthday themed party for my 1 year old. I told her what color I wanted and she recommended an accent color to make it really pop. I was amazed at how quickly my order came but also how unique everything looked. Super happy and I will be using her for my children’s future party. No more party city!

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.

I was extremely happy with my experience using Isaac's Catering. We used them for our graduation party which had about 50 guests. The prices were the best and the food was fantastic! We had more than enough and everyone raved about it. The service was also great. It was delivered on time (early even!), completely set up and the everything was picked up the next day. Super easy, super yummy and within our price range. Definitely recommend!

Chris was very easy to talk to, which was important since this was my first catered event for our Preschool Fundraiser. He walked me through the process and his prices were great! I asked him for a tasting and he came to the school and fed several of our teachers. Everything was delicious! Our event was for 100 people and was an evening event with appetizers and wine/beer. It went perfectly. Not only was the food great and beautifully served, his staff was awesome. They totally blended in. A bonus was his bartender: she arrived a half hour early and instead of sitting around, jumped in and unloaded cars and set up with us. We can't wait to book him for next year's fundraiser!

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!

Andrea at Events by Abel is truly fantastic! I first met Andrea through her organizing a running event, and the weekend went by seamlessly. I next attended an event she coordinated to raise money for the American Cancer Society. That event was classy, tasteful and so creative. Andrea is incredibly organized, super detail-oriented and has one of the strongest work ethics I've ever seen. Not to mention, she can make anyone she's around feel comfortable and at ease. If I ever have an event I need help with (wedding, fundraiser, party, etc) - Andrea will be the first person I come to. If you're considering reaching out to her, I think you'll be happy you did!

Being a professional musician who plays for countless weddings, private parties, and corporate events, I've seen my fair share of soirees. Kelly's stand out to me because she puts herself into every event she throws. It is obvious that she has a passion and delight for what she creates. Artist-event planner: She is first and foremost an artist, and thus every party of her's becomes a work of art, sparkling with those clever, delightful, novel details that make one giddy like a child, and bring one into the present moment. These events are visions that are tailor-made from imagination, not canned. This 1920's themed party was a portal to another era where, because of our surroundings, we couldn't help but find ourselves playing in character. The decorations, table settings, poetically dripping candleabras, classic cocktails, cigars, 1920s murder mystery game, the antique frame to capture pictures inside of, and of course Kelly's hostess with the mostess charm and orchestration all evoked my inner Gatsby. We seek to party because we seek to become both transported and present; Kelly's events have a bit of magic to them, where you come home feeling like you went somewhere extraordinary, and that while you were there, you were there the whole time. Thanks Kelly! More to come!

Our experience couldn't be any better. Rinna is an amazing wedding planner and individual as a whole. She went above and beyond all of our expectations and made our wedding run smoothly without any problems. She was so helpful, cordial, and available at any hour of the day. I was able to communicate with her all day and night by email, text, phone and have no complaints. Rinna even took the time to meet my close family so that she knew who to communicate with on the big day and was ok with all of the last minute changes we had asked for. She made sure everything was on schedule and even assisted in creating my seating chart last minute. She is an amazing planner and HIGHLY recommend her to EVERYONE. Although she was no familiar with my traditions and customs she took time to learn everything and made sure everything turned out perfectly. She will not disappoint. Thank you Rinna!!

I needed a Wedding Coordinator to decorate the reception venue on the day of the wedding since I wasn’t going to have time to do so, Valentina contacted me and from her initial email I knew she was perfect! Her email stood out from others due to her professionalism and well thought out questions, she came off as someone that knew what the job entailed and asked all the right questions. The wedding was 5 months away Valentina kept in touch and as the date draw closer scheduled a meeting to go over the details meeting her in person just solidified my decision. Throughout the months Valentina made sure to very politely keep in touch with me always offering to help in anything needed despite the fact that I had only hired her for the day of. In the few days before the wedding she contacted me to check on last details, 3 days before the wedding I had to completely change the lay-out and was in constant communication with her for the next 2 days. Valentina went above and beyond to make our day perfect, I really never did worry about the reception decoration because she was in charge she gave me such peace of mind it was really great to be able to trust someone so much and not have to worry. The day came and she did an absolutely great job, she got to the venue early, set up the tables, décor, managed the florist and arrangements, deliveries, picked up a cake, greeted our guests and announced our entrance. Valentina was absolutely amazing and wedding coordination is really her calling, she had great taste decorating the cake table, gift table, everything looked beautiful. She added a few flowers to the cake and sent me a picture for approval it was so classy and beautiful and something I hadn’t thought of. Valentina was a joy to work with, always professional, kind and willing to do a great job she was my best vendor and I’m so grateful for her she saved me a lot of stress and did a great job my guests were blown way and are still talking about how beautiful the reception was. I’m a Project Planner by profession and looked forward to planning my own wedding which was fun, but I would not hesitate to hire Valentina and just let her plan and execute the entire event, in fact had I known her earlier I probably would just have hired and let her design and manage it.

Vanessa was an absolute pleasure to work with! I hired her to help me coordinator everything leading up to our wedding day. Her attention to detail was phenomenal and served as a wonderful second pair of eyes in reading over all the contracts from vendors! I couldn't believe how many details and questions there was but she was there to answer and ask all of them. It was really great that once the wedding date was approaching she started answering emails from my vendors because she already had the answers which saved us a great time of time! She really knew her way about event planning and it was so comfortable for me to talk to her about changes or thoughts and she is very flexible with direction if you change your mind. Vanessa responds when she sees your email and will let you know if she saw your email but didn't have time to answer. I loved how well she communicated with me. She texts right away and she is very thorough with her email responses. She is adaptable in learning how to efficiently use technology to her advantage. I opted to use GoogleDrive to share documents back and forth. Until she met me, she didn't know how to use and now she is an expert! I cannot imagine not having this wedding without all of Vanessa's hard work! She deserves all the credit.

My experience with Moments Remembered Events was nothing short of phenomenal. With top event planner Lykai's expertise, creative eye, and experience my events were made special to say the least. Lykai was at my every call to put my mind at ease when planning not only my wedding but bridal and baby shower! Three very special once in a lifetime milestones. Her professionalism is unmatchable, Lykai makes herself available even in her own personal time and goes the extra ten miles to ensure not only satisfaction but pure gratification. The events she planned were my firsts so she listened and led me in the right direction to make it my own. With her knowledge of outside vendors she was able to make everything come to life on time and budget. Hey style and creativity bring your dreams to life, whether contemporary or timeless classic. I will use Moments Remembered Events for all of my future sentiments.

    We had so much fun at my daughter's sweet 16 birthday party. DJ Charlie played all current dance pop and top 40 music videos on a large screen, which was the best entertainment we've had in the last several years. Charlie is very professional, I'm very happy I booked his services and I would like to have him back later on. Thank you, Charlie.

    We had Portero Concierge handle our 50 wedding anniversary party. Everything went off without a hitch. The setting and the attention to detail was superb. Marni was as excited as we were about our party. We highly recommend Portero for all of your event needs big or small. Even day to day activities that you just don’t have time for.

    I have to start off by saying that Patricia is a very nice and sweet lady. That's one of things I really loved about her. She takes her job very serious and gets the job done! I called her last minute and she still made sure my event (Baby Shower) was very nice and BEAUTIFUL!! I got my moneys worth and everyone loved the designs which made me feel even better. I would recommend her to anyone who needs help with decorating any event.

    Krista did my wedding invitations and my wedding favor tags. I was blown away! Every aspect of planning my wedding was becoming more and more stressful, and the first fun thing I did for my wedding was to work with Krista on making a design for my invitations. I did not have a clear vision of what I wanted and Krista helped me to make decisions through small steps. It was overwhelming looking online at all sorts of different invitations, but Krista asked me simple questions that helped me to weed out what I didn’t want and discover what I did want. I ended up with an overall product that really gave guests a glimpse into what the wedding would be like. I had so many compliments on my invitations, and they were one of a kind. Krista was always quick to respond to me, met all of her deadlines, and never even batted an eye when I asked for MULTIPLE revisions. Her attention to detail is amazing, and there is nothing I would change about my final product. I had no idea that I could get custom invitations at a reasonable price. Only a few weeks before my wedding I asked if Krista could help me with my favor tags since I was running out of time to do them myself. Krista came up with an amazing design that matched our invitations and had them to me in record time. Working with Krista on the invitations and favor tags was probably the smoothest part of planning my wedding. With Babies on the brain I know I will be in touch soon to help with baby announcements and kid birthday parties. I am a customer for life. Thank you Krista!!!
