I worked with Yvonne and At Your Service for a wedding that I planned on 4th of July weekend and could not have been more pleased. Yvonne provided both bartending and servers. Leading up to the event Yvonne was accessible and genuinely interested in making sure that everything was perfect for the bride and groom. As the wedding planner, I was to thankful for expertise and attention to detail throughout the process — despite the many updates and changes throughout! I (and the bride) felt completely confident and at ease in Yvonne’s hands. On the day of, the team was incredibly professional and efficient. Any small glitches that inevitably come with planning a big event was handled without any interruption for guests. We had PLENTY of compliments about At Your Service and would highly recommend them for any event!

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 it’s 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 I’d 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, we’ve 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 you’ll need it. Make sure you go with a pro like Tiffany. I’m 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, I’m sure you will eventually do the same. Kudos Tiffany for the excellent work! Written by a very happy bride :)

She was very laid back and I mean this in a good way. I like to be in control when planning my wedding or events and she made sure to listen and make sure all my visions and choices were taken care of! At our wedding I didn't feel stressed at all and having her took a lot of potential stress off my shoulders. She was extremely helpful and good at communicating with me. Thanks !

Manya and her team made all my dreams come true for my colorful chai-themed co-ed baby shower. I'm extremely detail-oriented and a perfectionist by heart - so that's a challenge for any event planner :) Manya helped execute my vision to the T! She's very hardworking, kind and accommodating to all needs - big and small. She has good ideas and can be flexible to work with on any budget. She's also very responsive to text, email and phone calls. You won't regret collaborating with Manya - she's passionate about her work and will help make your event truly dazzle :)

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 mentioned this during the speech in my wedding: "I don't know what we would have done without Matt." He helped and guided us since the beginning, from finding a venue for 3 events (it was a destination wedding and we wanted 3 days of festivities, welcome drinks, wedding, and farewell drinks) to the end. Matt was very reliable, professional, and patient. He answered hundreds of emails/questions I had during the planning. Everything turned out to be the way we dreamed about. I loved the decor, flowers arrangements, and the suggestions he gave us when we didn't know what to chose. We are very happy with Forsyth Designs and we'd absolutely recommend him for your event!

Hiring LadyMarry was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! Deb is a class act. From our initial DJ meeting to our wedding day, he was professional, organized and calm. He asked us the right questions to make sure our wedding was the event that we truly wanted. He understood our musical tastes, gave us helpful advice on pre-ceremony and cocktail hour music ideas, his mixes were outstanding, his announcements were well placed and delivered, and he easily went with the flow when things came up. A guest at our wedding got the spontaneous idea to have all the guests do a mannequin challenge. He found the right time to do it, announced to the guests and guided us through it. He also recorded it and edited an awesome video for us. It is amazing to have those moments captured in such a special way! Thank you!

Beth is great! She worked with me for months while I solidified details for my wedding. There were venue changes and date changes and I'm so glad it all worked out. Admittedly, I wasn't too impressed with the first bouquet arrangement she prepared but I think it was becuase she wanted to meet my expectations for flowers (which werent totally in season yet so some colors werent available). Once we discussed my changes and preferences, the second bouquet was amazing and everything I envisioned! My bouquet, cake topper and centerpieces at the wedding were simply gorgeous!! I would love to work with her again and would recommend her to fam/friends.

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.

I absolutely recommend Kristine and her team. She met up with my husband and I at our venue about a month before our wedding. This was a several hour drive for her which we really appreciated. She took the time to go through every detail, not only about the catering component, but the entire wedding. She clearly has a great deal of experience in the business and we got a lot of great ideas and input from her. She also was very much our advocate when dealing with the difficult bar manager at our venue. The day of the wedding she and her team set everything up perfectly. Her staff was amazing. They were all so sweet and stayed to the very end of the night making sure everything was cleaned and finished. Again I completely recommend Kristine, our wedding was amazing and a huge success which she had a big part of!

During our first meeting, Mary Kay explained that her goal was to make sure that we (parents of the bride) would be relaxed, confident and enjoying the special moments of our daughter's wedding day - WITHOUT having to worry about logistics, timelines or small details. With years of experience, and knowledge planning and coordinating large events and weddings, MaryKay provided guidance, clarity, creativity and the confidence to put our minds and hearts totally at ease. She served as a sounding board for creative time and money-saving ideas the months leading up to the wedding, and especially during the final month and the week of -and day of- our daughter's wedding. Mary Kay helped us explore sample table decor ideas, keeping into consideration our budget. She used her vast knowledge of vendors in the SF Bay Area, and created 'demo' and 'mock-up' table decor settings, helping us finalize our lovely decor designs. Her expertise, can-do attitude, sense of humor and clear and intentional communications resulted in peace of mind and confidence on our part (the parents of the bride) that all would be well on the big day. Even if something unexpected would happen, we were confident that Mary Kay would come to the rescue! Her 'Day Of' emergency kit was stocked FULL of anything that might be needed. And with out of town visitors, she suggested gift-basket/welcome ideas that were a huge hit with our guests. She stayed in communication with our vendors, and provided a detailed timeline and work-back schedule for the very busy 'Week Of' and 'Day Of' the wedding. Everything went off without a hitch! Many of our wedding guests marveled at how smoothly everything went on the big day (3/21/15), which we believe is in large part due to the pre-planning, fun, creative energy and guidance provided by Mary Kay. If you are planning a wedding or special event, and would like to release and let go of the stress, details and planning... Mary Kay is for you! We are more than happy to HIGHLY recommend Mary Kay to anyone who may need her services.

Erika (Cast Your Cares Event Planning) is a true professional planner and an excellent event coordinator. Rosa and I chose Erika to coordinate our wedding and although it was the biggest wedding in town, it certainly had it's challenges and Ms. Erika handled everyone of them like a pro. We could not have been happier with Erika and her work with us and our vendors. Her greatest asset was no more evident and very much on display, the day of our wedding. Wow... Erika was spot on from start to finish, keeping all those involved with our special day, on time and together. From getting my bride's hair and makeup finished (with photos!) and into the limo to the church ON TIME, to making sure all of our guests were enjoying the reception (photos of us at each table), and then keeping us on time leaving the reception and off to our life as husband and wife. Just a well done job all around. I would like to complement Erika on her beautiful decorations for the reception (tables, cake tables, etc,) and her expert management the guest seating chart (which is not and easy chore) .... Rosa and I were so impressed with Erika's work coordinating our wedding, we do plan to chose Cast Your Cares again with upcoming professional and special events (milestone birthdays and charity functions). Thanks again Erika! You are a dream to work with and you helped us truly enjoy our very special day! Rosa and Pete Mouwen

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!!

"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."

Julianne was amazing! We hired her for our day-of wedding coordination and she seriously jumped in and started helping where we needed help and collecting people/family members when we needed photos. Julianne got all the vendors paid, and even made sure we had all the paperwork in order for the license signing. She even helped create the boutteniers we forgot to make the night before and they turned out perfect! She helped make our wedding stress-free and it was amazing! I highly recommend her and her amazing organization!!

My wife and I had thought we'd do our own wedding planning. We'd found our venue and vendors on our own; how hard could the finishing touches be? Especially for the small, simple event we envisioned? In hindsight, we'd accomplished only the easiest parts of the process, and without Diana and Tammy's help I don't know how we would have had the wonderful, stress-free event that we did. While we hired them as day-of-coordinators, they provided much more than day-of services, taking over vendor interactions months in advance of the actual event, actively helping to plan table layouts and other details, and in weekly video chats they provided organization and discipline that kept my wife and I on-task. There's so much work behind even a "simple" wedding that we hadn't even thought about, but Diana and Tammy guided us through it all. They were lifesavers; our wedding day was everything we'd hoped that it would be, and Diana and Tammy were absolutely critical to making it happen.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
