Drew and his team were incredible to have at our event. We had 50-75 people to host/manage and their service, energy and strong event management were incredibly valuable. They took control of the bar and food and allowed my husband and me to truly enjoy our event. Will plan to work with them again in the future and strongly recommend them!
I hired Michael to bartend my Halloween party. Before the event he came up with great themed cocktails that were delicious and fun! His energy was positive and everyone loved him. He also helped with clean up, which was grately appreciated. Michael was a hit, I would definitely hire him again.
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 :)
Alisa was terrific to work with - she was on time, organized and provided delicious, quality food. Will definitely call on her when planning our next event!
AnnaMarie was AMAZING. She was so completely helpful and perfect as our day-of coordinator. Everyone that worked with her was impressed with her efficiency, precision and professionalism. She gently guided us through the day and I was able to fully relax and feel that things were being taken care of. My husband is a fairly exacting and organized German and he was so appreciative of the AR Weddings services. Honestly, I could not recommend more. If you're planning a wedding in the bay area, this is your event planner!!!
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 :)
Just hired Danny to help us w/ my daughters 18th bday. Can't wait to see the final outcome. He's so kind and super responsive.
Forsyth Designs was the mastermind behind the exceptionally beautiful and customized decor for our wedding. Matt's ability to translate our vision into a reality that far exceeded our expectations while staying on budget was the best "gift" a bride could ask for! He literally transformed a white tent into a stunning lounge-like atmosphere that accommodated our every need and desire. There isn't a large scale event or party that I would consider hosting without collaboration from Forsyth Designs. Working with Matt is seriously delightful on every level!
Just signed our contact couple weeks ago. Joanne has been so nice and friendly to answer all the questions I had. Can't wait to start working with her and her coordinator!!!
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!
I came across Khadija as a very professional yet friendly event planner, and thats exactly what I was looking for. She has great organizing and communication skills. Her price quote for my brothers wedding was clear and to the point making it easy for me to understand. I will definitely recommend her for all the event planning. All our guests were very impressed and some of them used her services already and they were equally happy! Thanks Khadija for your outstanding service :)
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.
I can't possibly say enough good things about working with Zach. He made my wife's 40th birthday party an exceptional event - executed flawlessly with *incredibly* delicious food. Each course was more delicious than the last - a perfect, creamy chilled asparagus soup, followed by an outstanding panzanella complete with homemade bread croutons, then on to an incredible halibut dish with flawless asian flavors and finally on to a perfect chocolate tartlet with coffee stout mousse and a bourbon cream. Oh man, if we could have that meal again, we'd go back to it over and over again. It was as good if not better than any meal we've had at our favorite restaurant. Zach made the evening easy and smooth, ensuring all the details were covered and making sure our party of 8 had a memorable evening. He was calm and a real delight - even making sure our two girls (ages 3 and 5) and the family dog were taken care of (for example, letting our older daughter help cook and taste as he went). It felt like having a cool and incredibly talented friend in the house, relaxed and delightful. Can't recommend working with him enough - and we certainly will have him back for another event in the future.
We hired Natasia for face painting this last weekend and she was a hit! The girls loved her designs and she even had matching stick on gems! She was able to move quickly through the line of girls and finished about 25+ in 2 hours. I am very happy with the Party Artists and would book them again!
Absolutely the best! Scott and his team from Sparkling or Still were the consummate professionals. From the first email, to the last guest heading out the door they made our event flawless. I recommend Sparkling or Still without hesitation and will definitely hire them the next time I need event staffing!
They are professional cater. Nice and kind to dealing with. I would recommend to anyone who plan to have an event, party, and for any occasion. They provide the reasonable price compare to others.
Robyn made my bridal shower a total surprise! I was not expecting it at all. It was based on me, as the theme was what I love best, horses. I could tell she had spent so much time researching to find decorations and party favors that would make my bridal shower so special. She also helped plan my backyard wedding. I'm not a very good party planner myself so had no idea where to start. When I hired her, she stepped right in and took the control I was looking for. I could relax and have a great time at my wedding knowing every little detail was being watched and taken care of by Robin.
We were both very happy with the service and professionalism Heidi and Ashton brought. Things ran so well and we could not be happier!
Our experience with Weddings by Jaimee was exceptional. Jaimees services are truly Turn Key. She was a very warm and professional Officiant, Wedding Planner and Floral Designer. Her knowledge of Aloha, flowers and design allowed us to customize our dream of creating our Hawaii Theme of Ohana! You feel her excitement for making your day the most important thing in the world. I did not hesitate to recommend her to our hotel Catering Director as an Officiant and Floral Designer. Reach out to Weddings by Jaimee to make your wedding day one to remember.
Christa Mekki is an absolutely astounding event planner. She is creative, patience, detail-oriented, and easy to work with! She is the epitome of customer service. I would reccommend her for every important occasion, big or small.
DJ Swell is amazing for all events. We just recently had him at an 8th grade party and he was great! Would definitely use him again!
