Jen was fantastic! I hired her to do balloon twisting at our school's fun fair. From the minute I contacted her through the entire event she was professional, responsive to calls/texts and very personable. Would definitely recommend her.

I met Michael last June while I was at a Spa Resort in St Helena. He was renovating several of the rooms there and I was very impressed with how beautifully he transformed the spaces. We spoke briefly and he gave me his card and explained that he also did staging, interior decorating, flowers and party planning. A few months later when I was planning a 40th birthday party I contacted him to see if he could assist. Initially I was expecting to have him decorate and maybe do some floral arrangements. We met and I explained to him that I wanted to do an open house type event, in my home where guests could drop in throughout the day. I knew I needed to maximize my space and needed a menu and some decorative help. He said he could do it all, and I have to admit I was a bit apprehensive. He said he would get back to me and to expect an email. Within two hours I had an appetizer menu, cocktail recommendations, a detailed spreadsheet with a list of supplies needed, the approximate cost and places I could go to find these items and attached images of decorating/ staging ideas that he thought would be appropriate. I quickly realized that he really knew what he was doing, so I hired him to do it all. Over the next three weeks, he was extremely conscientious in keeping me informed of his progress. The night before the event he requested a six hour window of time to work alone, to get everything set up, staged and decorated. Then he brought me in to walk thru and make sure it was all completed to my satisfaction. I have to say I was very very pleased with his work. He said he would be back the next day to put on the finishing touches. But when the guests started to arrive he began showing them in, and taking their coats. He helped make drinks, maintained the bar and buffet table and ended up staying the whole day. He was marvelous and I had the best time enjoying my own party. It was much more than I expected and I could not have done it without him. In January, I was able to hire Michael again for a company event. Annually we bring in our entire National Sales Team to meet and review our sales, new products and host a special awards dinner. This year it was held at the Clift Hotel and I wanted Michael to do all the staging and set up for it. He worked with the hotel staff and did a beautiful job decorating the entrance with lighted balloons simulating clouds (our latest development) he brought in fresh flower arrangements for the banquet room and did little arrangements with candles for the table centerpieces. He even decorated the outside balcony area and the restrooms. Our CEO and Director of Sales were impressed and asked that I bring Michael back for our Holiday event.

Ashley is an amazing artist. Her artistic skills are reflected in her face art. She has a beautiful soul and makes your experience more than just having your face painted. Not only does she listen to your request, she makes it even more amazing than you could have imagined ! Face art is great at any event and Ashely is your gal!

Dan Chan the Magic Man and his crew are OUTSTANDING! Easy to work with and professional in every sense of the word! Perfect for stage acts but, also fantastic for small groups. No event is complete without Dan and his magical touches! I promise you will wonder . . . how did he do that!

I walked in the office in the beginning of Jan, and my wedding was in Feb. l was super frustrated before I met them, and was seeking help for flower decoration of my ceremony, video and DJ. The team did a wonderful job in making plans for this rush event. The center decoration was a perfect match to what I was looking for. Well done!

Lisa did a wonderful job. Very professional. She was on time and worked very fast so she was able to get through a lot of kids. Even working fast, her face paints were beautiful and very detailed. She brought a bunch of business cards with her and all of them were taken by the other moms at the party. I would definitely recommend Lisa and I will use her services again.

I was very pleased with the security services provided by Protective Options, Inc. for my daughter's wedding. Their presence and professionalism put everyone's mind at ease resulting in a safe celebration. Art was very patient with me as I made adjustments to our needs several times prior to the wedding. In addition, he added his suggestions to help our event run smoothly. I highly recommend Art and Protective Options, Inc services for any event and will hire them again if the need ever arises.

I highly recommend hiring The DJ Way for your next event. We hired Isaac for a work event. He was very easy to work with. He came early to set up and was dress appropriately. This was a big thing for my boss because it was a corporate event. Mind you this is a corporate party so therefore a lot of people were hesitant to be the first to jump out there and dance. He was able to loosen everyone up and get people moving. He was very accommodating to guest making special requests. The party ran a little later than expected since guest were having such a good time. Isaac did not rush to leave but played a few last song before we were able to rally everyone out the door. If you are looking for a DJ that understand music and pays attention to your needs, you won't go wrong with hiring The DJ Way.

I hired Delta Private Security for crowd control and event security for a wedding reception and they did a great job. We had one guard at the front door checking in guests as they arrived and another inside by the bar. David was super friendly and helpful. I would recommend them to anyone.

My partner and I knew we only wanted a limited amount at our wedding, and Beth was happy to work with our vision. I was impressed with the bouquets she created with our color palette (I even dried mine so I'll have it forever) and she made boutonnieres out of hops for the guys. She even had a chuppah that we were able to rent, so we didn't have to worry about setup. I would definitely recommend Beth for any event, big or small.

Marianne was our florist for our wedding and EVERYTHING was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! We got so many compliments with all the services she provided for us. She brought my visions to life!! She's very sweet, professional and responds to any questions or concerns promptly. My mother and I are extremely detail oriented and she did everything she could to make sure my wedding was perfect and beautiful. Marianne listened to all my thoughts and ideas and was able to give feedback and follow with other amazing ideas. I had many headaches and stressful moments planning my wedding, but I never had to stress about my flowers because I trusted her with everything and knew she was going to make things wonderful. I can't thank her enough for all the hard work she did. I recommend Marianne for not only weddings but any occasion that you need a florist!

The lighting for our private party event was fabulous. It hit the mark, and really made the party special. Brian was quick to respond, on time, and super-pro about it all. And the quality of the lighting was just right, with uplights, pin spots, and dance floor lighting, all in the right colors. I will use them again when I need event lighting.

Awesome job! I just wanted a new everyday go-to look and Laila delivered! She was patient and listened to what I wanted and went above expectations! The makeup she applied lasted for 10+ hours without creasing or smudging. Fantastic product selection, would go to again for any event!
