I cannot even begin to describe how amazing the experience has been with hiring Yvonne and her staff. I was doing most of the planning for my wedding and needed to find serving staff. I went onto Thumbtack and found Yvonne, from the beginning to end she was responsive, professional, assuring me that she "had this all handled"....and she did. She always responded immediately to any e-mail, which allowed me to relax and really know that she had my back. Her staff all came when expected, they were so great, all kind, professional, and enjoyable to be around. Clearly happy with their work, and supportive of Andy and my "big day". They did everything we asked without question. And to top it off her prices are so reasonable, while we are thrilled that she made the serving staff reasonably priced, she would be worth a lot more. Hire them, you will not be sorry!
Rev Saundra was excellent! She was patient, kind, thoughtful, understanding, and flexible. She completely embraced and accommodated the unique nuances of our multi-cultural ceremony. She took time to study and learn ancient san-san-kudo rituals without being prompted. She also reminded us of everything that needed to be done-- from our marriage license and vows, to hugging and kissing our parents at the alter when we were too busy or preoccupied to think about such details. We highly recommend Rev. Saundra for your wedding! You won't be disappointed!
We had a wedding rehearsal dinner on a Friday and I connected and ordered on Tuesday of the same week. Professionals all the way and the food was outstanding! Thank you Evan and Gabby!
Michael showed up on time, stayed late, and made sure all 80+ people at my wedding were served promptly. He was able to handle a crowd of drinkers by himself and the drinks were very good.
Before I give my glowing review of Tiffany, I have to preface the review with a few words so you know that I was in your shoes. Wedding planning sucks and having to stick to a limited budget doesn't it make it easier. As a bride, sometimes you have to cut corners in order to afford simple things (or let's be honest more desired things) for your wedding. Hiring a full service wedding planner, was one of those things that I really wanted, but I knew it would take a huge chunk out of my wedding budget. My wedding was in San Francisco, so its not the cheapest city to have your wedding. But after receiving price quotes from full service wedding planners, their prices depressed me (adding unnecessary stress to my wedding budget woes) and when I looked at their packages, I just didn't feel like it was right for me or my budget. I had to take a step back, breathe, and take ownership of wedding planning and face reality. I knew what Id need to do, to stay on budget. I had big decisions to make as a bride, but I knew I could save a ton, if I planned my own wedding. So I thought hey I plan many events for my friends, family, and clients all the time, weve got about 85-100 guests to invite, why not plan my own wedding, and hire a day of coordinator to save money?" I did just that and when I was in the process of looking for a day of coordinator, my next thought was, "shoot if I hire a day of coordinator, will I overlook something and regret not hiring a full service wedding planner?". With caution, I started to ask for quotes for day of coordinators and realized right away what I needed to do. I put a request up on Thumbtack and the email quotes came rolling in. I was astonished. But I was in a conundrum - every price was competitive, so how does one choose a vendor over the other. All of them had amazing reviews (which put my initial concerns more at ease). I spent a few days emailing back different vendors, asking them questions, reading their reviews, even looking them up on Linkedin! I did some my research and eventually decided on Tiffany Won. Choosing her as the day of coordinator was one of the best decisions I made during the wedding planning process. 3 pieces of advice if you DIY: First off ladies, have more confidence in your planning abilities and use the resources the internet provides you (there are a ton of wedding checklists and schedules online to help you plan your own wedding, and for inspiration for décor or what not, pinterest was key for me). It might be intimating at first, and the time involved in planning your wedding might feel like an absolute time suck, but trust in yourself and plan your day. No one has a better vision of what you want for your wedding, more than you. Secondly, trust in a day of coordinator like Tiffany to execute on your vision. She's top notch and will be a valuable asset in your planning process. I hired her as my day of coordinator. I was a little anxious, but after I spoke with her on the phone and especially after I met her before my wedding for the 2 hour pre-wedding meeting, I could tell that she had plenty of experience in event planning and coordination. Not only does she have experience in wedding planning, but she has extensive experience planning corporate events and conferences, which as you know, could range from hundreds to thousands of attendees. My thought was, if this girl can plan corporate events that are large scale, she will definitely be able to coordinate my smaller scale event. She also asked the right questions before the wedding, which put my concerns at ease, since she is very sharp and it became clear to me, that event planning plays a very familiar story in her head, a story she knows word for word. Thirdly, stick to your budget. If you need to roll up them sleeves and plan your wedding, just do it. But call in some cavalry to take over on the day of your wedding day because youll need it. Make sure you go with a pro like Tiffany. Im pretty detailed oriented. So is she. I thought I had every detail planned, all she has to do is follow the schedule. You know what, she was able to catch holes in my schedule and my planning. She worked with me to double check my wedding schedule and everything the whole shebang from pre-wedding day stuff like what time the florist will set up, when will the lighting company get to the venue, advice or a second opinion on wedding décor, suggestions for additional vendors .even ceremony logistics such as where people would stand, the flow of the event, gaps in the vendors schedules and the wedding reception details like when the band would take their breaks so she can play an ipod or something so background music would play, helping with the mic transition from the emcee to other guest speakers, overseeing food service so there wasn't a huge gap between the appetizers and dinner, making sure I ate, making sure the groom and I did our table rounds to thank our guests for coming, making sure at the end of the evening someone could collect my wedding gifts, etc etc. Tiffany did a phenomenal job at overseeing every tiny detail the day of the wedding! My wedding went smoothly, the guests had a fantastic time, I now have memories that will last a lifetime, and this was all because I had help taking some wedding responsibilities off my shoulders, I'm so glad I hired Tiffany! Tiffany went over and beyond the call of duty and at a very fair price. Whether you hire her as a day of coordinator or hire her for full service wedding planning (or to plan any type of event), do yourself a favor and put her in your top consideration list. I would hire her again if I could. I will certainly be recommending her to my friends and family. And if you hire her, Im sure you will eventually do the same. Kudos Tiffany for the excellent work! Written by a very happy bride :)
Elizabeth was excellent! We hired her as our florist for our wedding in Burlingame, and she was very knowledgeable and helpful. She made suggestions when we weren't sure what kind of decorations we wanted, and she was able to create our centerpieces from pictures we found online. I gave her a swatch of our color and she was able to dye calla lilies to match the color exactly! Her prices were very competitive, and she was responsive to any questions that we had throughout the entire process. She showed up on time to drop off the bouquets/boutonnieres, helped with the setup, moved vases from our ceremony to our reception, and then came back at the end of the night to clean up and take the rented items back. And everything looked GREAT! :) She was very nice and professional and I would definitely recommend her to anyone! Thank you so much for making our wedding that much better, Elizabeth!
I highly recommend AR wedding planners! We debated whether we needed a day-of coordinator, but in the end, due to a couple logistical challenges we decided to go for it. In hindsight I can’t imagine doing it any other way. Rebecca was incredible. Not only did she give me peace of mind by tackling those logistical challenges head-on, she was also extremely proactive. I knew I was in excellent hands from the very beginning. She asked all the right questions and ensured we had all the necessary information at our fingertips at exactly the right moments. She is very professional and handled any issues that came up with ease. Finally, she’s fun! She ensured we enjoyed our day completely stress and hassle-free, all while blending in seamlessly with friends and family. Thank you, Rebecca for being a part of our special day. We are so grateful for your help and would happily recommend you to anyone!
I found Matt as a great and competitive bid on Thumbtack for my wedding personal flowers. I had made my own centerpieces and alter pieces. I sent Matt pictures of my inspiration bouquet and my own creations. I told him I was open minded as long as everything flowed nicely together. I was more than pleased! We got much larger flower arrangements than I had anticipated for the price. They looked amazingly similar to my inspiration pic and also blended well with the decor I had created. Matt was very responsive and easy going via email and didn't worry that one of my payments was a bit late. My wedding planner picked up the flowers, but she said there were no problems with this process either. Overall, flowers were not something I thought I cared too much about--however Matt not only made them fit within my budget, but also made them one of my favorite touches to our wedding. I cannot recommend Forsyth Designs enough. Wonderful to work with all around.
I would highly recommend LadyMarry, I was travelling from overseas for my wedding and Birte could not have been more helpful, any advice I required she happily gave, responded to all my e mails in a timely manner. The flowers she provided were absolutely stunning, they lasted so long too. I would highly recommend if anyone is looking for any advice on weddings that they use LadyMarry. Birte, thank you so much for helping make our wedding day so special.
Loved working with Sassy Diva! The floral design on my wedding day definitely exceeded all of my exceptions. Can't thank you enough, Beth!
Loved working with Khadija during my wedding events! She made everything look so beautiful, turn out was amazing!! She took care of every little detail and I was able to be a stress free bride. Highly recommend Limelight Productions!! 5 stars for sure. :-)
We hired Taneva Events for our wedding on July 29th, 2017. After a long search for a florist, I came across Velina. After our first contact, which was very pleasant and friendly, I knew that I was going to hire Velina for our wedding. She listened to what I had in mind for my flowers and was able to provide me with some great recommendations on how to make that happen. Velina is very sweet, very responsive and professional. She provided her answers and assistance to all of the questions and concerns I had. The day of the wedding, I got more then what I hoped for. My flowers were so beautiful! Velina did an AMAZING work. She delivered not only what I asked for, but even more! We got so many complements on our flowers, from centerpieces to corsages. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend to hire Taneva Events if you are looking for a florist for your next event.
Mary Kay was our day of coordinator for our wedding 10/7/17. We were so thankful for her help leading up to the wedding, on the rehearsal, and on the actual wedding day. Would highly recommend MK because she was a rockstar. Thank you so much, Mary Kay!!
Sara was amazing from the beginning of our wedding planning process all the way through our big day! I would recommend her to my closest friends and family. Her professionalism, dedication and true passion for the art is unprecedented. Thank you for making our day so special!
Heidi and Ashton were the perfect day-of wedding coordinators. When we arrived at the site on our wedding day, everything was beautifully set up as if by magic. Gracefully and unobtrusively, they made everything happen. They arranged flowers, set up the wedding altar, wrangled vendors, and guided guests through the day’s various phases (ceremony, reception, toasts). They even served us cake and champagne. Our guests remarked on how “effortless” the wedding seemed; this is largely due to Birminkeley’s hard work! Birminkeley also helped plan our wedding. They visited the venue with us and talked us through everything from where to seat the guests to how many tablecloths to order. Later, they helped us search for wedding vendors. Despite our tight timeline (~2 months), they found us a wonderful photographer, rental company, and makeup artist. They were persistent and tenacious in making sure the vendors would adhere to our venue’s strict requirements. In addition to being very capable, flexible, and affordable, Heidi and Ashton are very pleasant to work with. Their calmness and perseverance helped us get through a very stressful time!
It was a pleasure working with Courtney,very professional and responsive to all of our questions and concerns. She did an amazing job being our coordinator for the month and day of our wedding, we were on time and everything went smooth on our wedding day, couldn't have done it without her!
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!!
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.
"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."
The first time I used Alta Cuisine was in 2003 for my wedding. My guests, about 120, were blown away by the food. We did an international buffet and it was amazing. Since then my family and I have used Alta Cuisine to cater many other events from office Xmas parties to big birthday parties, baby showers and small functions like my sisters' bridal shower for 10 people. Every time Alta caters an event people go crazy over the food. What they don't know is how easy it is to work with Alta and her staff. Alta always lets me make small changes to her menu ideas (though I never make too many!). She remembers to ask me about details I forget to think of, like table clothes and plates. Her staff are always friendly and professional. I can not recommend Alta Cuisine enough!
