Not only did Fresh & Fizzy provide excellent service but Drew's knowledge and advice was invaluable in planning our event. We ended up having him and his team do much more than we thought we would and we were so happy that we did.

We used Cazadores for our Startup Weekend. We reserved three meals: a lunch, and two dinners. The Indian buffet was delicious! It catered our vegan, vegetarian, and omnivore needs! Everyone raved about the Indian food! We also received a Mexican taco dinner. Similarly, Evan and his team grilled the meat and had hot tacos with all the fixings! There was even churros filled with caramel and vanilla custard! Bomb!!! Everyone also enjoyed the Chinese food. It was hard to resist!

Michael is 5 stars in all aspects. I needed a bartender for my husband's office party. He was easily reachable by text/email with all my questions pre party. Michael even made a special butter rum for one of our signature drinks. Very professional, easy to talk to and engaging to all the guests. During the "down" time he would help toss cups and clean up without me even asking. I already hired him again for our next party. I wish I had met him sooner! He does event planning, flower arrangements, home organization and who knows what else. Hire him for a job well done and someone you can depend on.

Tiffany worked with us as our day-of wedding coordinator. She met with my husband and me multiple times before the wedding to get a feel for our vision, and over time we were able to develop the perfect wedding schedule. On the wedding day itself, Tiffany coordinated with vendors so that I didn't have to worry about a thing. She helped set up decorations, and adapted to numerous last-minute changes, ensuring that everything went smoothly and as planned. Without her, our wedding day would not have been possible. In all of our communications Tiffany was professional and kind, and she showed up on time to everything. I highly recommend her services to other brides seeking a day-of coordinator (or other event planning services)!

Manya from "Dazzling Streaks" helped me organize a large (close to 100 people) semi-corporate event that we hosted at our house (not so large). It worked out perfectly as she was able to come up with great suggestions that had my own vision and requirements for the event in-focus at all times.. Her personalized service made it a fun event to plan for and at the end of the event, I had super happy and satisfied guests!

AnnaMarie did a fantastic job coordinating my wedding. I did most of the prep work, and then she made sure the day went off without a hitch! She made sure follow my wishes for the overall feel of the day and there was no detail left out. We definitely couldn't have done it without her! I would recommend her to anyone I know for wedding/event coordination and planning. Thank you for making our day so special!

We had a few hiccups with our event and had to change venues late in the planning process. This did not phase Matt as a problem in the least and was quick in finding the perfect new venue. Also, our budget did not allow for the anticipated amount for decor. Again, Matt worked his magic and the decor was a complete hit, really tying together our 80s themed Prom Night. Matt stays cool, calm, and collected throughout the whole planning process, which really adds to an overall smooth experience. If you are looking for an event planner, here is your guy!

An associate recommended Rainbow Chefs to provide the food for an event I was planning for a family gathering. I decided to go through with their services. There were kids and adults participating so I was a little nervous about how it would go, but everyone had a great time! It was so fun and interactive for the kids. The food was delicious! Would definitely recommend Rainbow Chefs!

Wanting to learn to cook lower calorie food that still had great flavor, I hired Zac to come to my home and teach in our kitchen. My husband is our (excellent) cook, I am not a cook (at fifty-something years old), presenting a bit of a challenge. Rising to the occasion, Zac planned a meal that read like the menu at French Laundry! Panic!There was no way I could prepare this meal. Zac said...Way! He met me at Sonoma Market to introduce me to fresh everything, not packaged anything! Back at our kitchen, the magic began and WOW! Probably one of the most delicious dinners I've ever had at home, and certainly rivaling 5 star restaurants. Our cooking and dining experience was nothing short of superb and better yet, not a dollop of butter or a drop of cream was used to create the fantastic soup, salad, and complex main course. Through Zac's exceptional knowledge of herbs and spices, he taught me to create extraordinary flavors to enhance the food, and not over power it. It was a brilliant evening of cooking! Zac is easy going, yet very assured, and his ability to communicate is second to none. Remarkable job by a talented young man who will be continuing to educate us in the kitchen and most assuredly catering events for us. Bravo, Zac...Bravo!

Beth is a wonderful, understanding, patient and caring florist. She truly loves her job and has a passion for floral design. She is also great about coordinating day of events. I hired Beth to do flowers for my Mexican themed wedding, as well as assist me in day of coordination. She went as far as traveling with me to a pick-your-own dahlias farm where we decided on which flowers would be the best for my bouquets and arrangements the day before the wedding. Beth is also timely, responds to emails very quickly and is very well organized. I have recommended her to other friends for their weddings and they also had very positive experiences with her. When I consulted her for advice on my wedding coordination, Beth had wonderful insights and opinions due to her years of experience. In short, Beth has a great eye for design and is very patient with her clients. I know I was always changing my mind and on the fence, and Beth did a great job keeping me on track and helping me make important decisions regarding my floral arrangements and wedding coordination.

I was planning a baby shower for my first grandchild. I needed centerpieces. I found Mariane on Thumbtack. I was impressed with her responsiveness to my request, first of all, but also with her consistent and prompt communication with me during the planning process. She delivered the centerpieces on time, and they were lovely.

Oh my goodness, I was so, so impressed with Cheri's cooking. I've never, and I mean never, tasted a turkey that was as tender and flavorful as hers. I'm getting hungry right now just thinking of it. She catered our holiday party, and the depth and delight of all her amazing dishes tantalized all the guests. All her dishes we're cooked and baked to perfection. She's a genius in the kitechen, with a down-home, nurturing spirit to boot. I highly recommend Cheri for any catering event you're planning in the future. Your guest will rave that it's the best catered food they've ever had.

From a parent’s perspective, the day your only daughter gets married is a day like no other! Looking back at Jessica and Mike’s wedding last year at Mission Santa Clara, we are filled with deep gratitude for the many amazing vendors that contributed to such a memorable day - and Mary Kay Mitchell of MKultra Events was at the top of our list! Contracting with Mary Kay to help us plan and organize the myriad of details and logistics was undeniably one of our smartest decisions! I'll never forget Mary Kay's reassuring words on the day we first met, several months before the wedding: "YOUR job is to celebrate, have fun, be with your daughter, your future son-in-law, your family...and experience fully the joy of each moment of the day! Forget about the the logistical details, the vendors, and 'To Do' tasks. That's MY job - Leave that to me!" Whew! A huge weight and concern was lifted from our shoulders! In the months before the wedding, Mary Kay collaborated and strategized with us on event planning/details such as reception table decor, flowers, maps, web content, directional signage, music, gift-baskets for our out-of-town guests, etc., etc. When 20+ relatives arrived from the East Coast the week before the wedding, we could "let go" and hand the remaining 'To Do' lists and details over to Mary Kay! After months and months of planning, the 'Big Day' goes by in a flash. As a parent, what do you want to remember? Certainly not logistics or unexpected surprises. No one has a crystal ball, and one never knows what unexpected issue or circumstance might "pop up" on the actual day of the wedding. With her years of hands-on experience, numerous vendor connections and expertise in wedding planning and large events, our hearts and minds were *immediately* put at ease. We knew Mary Kay could handle any situation that might come up. Mary Kay, your 'can-do' attitude, positive energy, creative solutions, time (and money!) saving suggestions, excellent planning and communication skills, infectious laugh and sense of humor... well, simply put, we truly cannot THANK YOU enough. We feel doubly blessed, as we now have a new friend in you! :-) You've made a HUGE difference in our lives - and ensured that a once-in-a-lifetime day filled with high and heartfelt emotions, nervous energy, joyful tears, prayers, celebration, dancing, laughter and love … would be a day like no other!

Events By Courtney Ann assisted me in the planning, coordinating and hosting of my Company Picnic and ensuring that the event went smoothly. Her advice and ideas resulted in the nicest picnic outing I could have imagined (not to mention relieving me of the stress associated with putting on a great event for my employers). We had a great turnout, with more than 65 people in attendance. She coordinated with the caterers, organized picnic games and party events and personalized the picnic area with banners, balloons, flowers and more. There were several organized games and races planned and Courtney facilitated in gathering large crowds for the games and making sure everyone had fun. Her timeline for the picnic was perfect. The day was awesome - everyone had a great time and my employers were extremely pleased. I would highly recommend Events By Courtney Ann for any event! She is organized, communicates well in the planning stages as well as at the event, is friendly and very professional.

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!!
