We had an excellent experience. We used bleu catering for a birthday party of about 20. The price was reasonable for the quality and quantity of food. Very responsive to our requests and worked with our budget. I would use them again for an event.

I hired the queen Elsa entertainment for my daughters 8th birthday party of frozen and the party was a hit. The kids loved the face painting while she sang songs ,they enjoyed the magic show and balloon animals. She was great and on time!! I would definitely recommend to anyone for there event/party. Going to other people's party who had entertainment similar she by far the was best and was worth it the money I paid😁 would definitely recommend 👍🏻

Marie was my day-of coordinator for my outdoor wedding last Friday. Our ceremony was in the back yard lawn area of a lake house, and the reception was on the beach. Marie was amaazing!! Hiring her was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Her services started out with a phone consultation where my husband and I were able to ask questions about what her services include. After we hired her, I then met with her via Skype to discuss the details of our wedding while my husband was at work. The day before the wedding, she came to our venue for the dress rehearsal and ran us through the entire ceremony a couple times. Finally, where it mattered most, on the day of our wedding, Marie showed up with her assistants and connected with all of our vendors, set up all of the tables based on pictures I sent her, stayed in contact with my wedding party and family who helped with setup, checked in with my husband and I often, and kept us on schedule throughout the entire outdoor ceremony and reception! Marie also offered her assistance with any requests my husband or I had. She and her team did all this through the 40 mph winds that kept blowing everything off our tables! After reflecting on our big day and the weeks leading up to it, there's only one thing that I wish I would have done differently, which is to stay completely hidden before walking down the aisle. My flower girl and ring bearer took a bit longer to walk down, and my dad and I were standing visibly at the door ready to walk out for a couple minutes before we finally took our first step. I could have simply requested to stay hidden from Marie or hid myself until go time, however I thought of it too late and my husband already saw me. He still got emotional though so it worked out regardless! Other than that, everything was absolutely perfect!! Everything turned out so beautifully and the events were smooth sailing! Without a doubt, I would absolutely hire Marie again and again. I give her my highest level of recommendation, and I know every bride- and groom-to-be would be pleased with her services! :)

I first met Andrea through our local charity running community. Since then, I have attended several events coordinated by Andrea and Events By Abel. She quickly become the unofficial social coordinator for our running group! From spectacularly detailed holiday parties to intimate progressive dinners to weddings for 100+ people, she has had her hand in countless events and special moments that I think back on and smile. That's exactly what you want when you hire someone to plan or coordinate an event for you. To take the stress out of the day and add extra details that you didn't realize would make the event that much more special. Events By Abel is the perfect choice if you are looking for someone to provide that at your next event. I would definitely recommend hiring Andrea for your next special event!

Annemarie made our son's graduation party fantastic. I was able to relax and enjoy myself while hearing people comment on what a great party it was. I would highly recommend her and use her for a future event.

All the praise I can give doesn't do Chef Renee and her staff justice for the outstanding experience they provided for our staff. They served 1000 ravenous people some of the most amazing food without missing a beat. I was of course stressed and nervous about putting together such a huge event but I was immediately put at ease by the professionalism, organization and amazing food at the tasting. This was the best holiday party we've had in the 15 years that i've been with the company. If you are looking for a company that goes the extra mile for their clients then this is it. Chef Renee and her staff made us feel like family and they put their hearts and souls in every detail from the decor to the food. Vera McDonald

Our experience couldn't be any better. Rinna is an amazing wedding planner and individual as a whole. She went above and beyond all of our expectations and made our wedding run smoothly without any problems. She was so helpful, cordial, and available at any hour of the day. I was able to communicate with her all day and night by email, text, phone and have no complaints. Rinna even took the time to meet my close family so that she knew who to communicate with on the big day and was ok with all of the last minute changes we had asked for. She made sure everything was on schedule and even assisted in creating my seating chart last minute. She is an amazing planner and HIGHLY recommend her to EVERYONE. Although she was no familiar with my traditions and customs she took time to learn everything and made sure everything turned out perfectly. She will not disappoint. Thank you Rinna!!

I was not looking forward to buying new house since our first experience was horrible and we ended up buying a condo that needed a lot more work then we anticipated. When I found out I was pregnant with twins we quickly realized our 2 bedroom condo was not going to work anymore. We interviewed over 7 realtors before we decided on Michelle and the biggest reason we picked her was because she seemed to be methodological in her approach. Most agents wanted to sell our condo for more than Michelle suggested we sell for and when we asked why she wanted to list it so low she explained her process and the market in a way that just sounded perfect. Sure enough our condo sold for more than we thought we would get all because of the way she priced it. I feel like most agents just shoot in the dark and hope they hit something but Michelle has a method to her madness that I really really liked. She deserves 10 stars for her work with us.

All thumbs up! I was so stressed out about my wedding, and I hired them 12 days before my wedding date. Upon talking to Glennie, I feel like a huge weight was lifted off my chest that I didn’t wait a day to give her deposit, I wanted to make sure I do not need to look for others. They did everything I asked them to do plus more (I trusted her team to add their own creativity with whatever things I provided them, and they did better than my own vision). I can’t thank them enough! Also, the team knows how to party! I told them to join us in our pre-wedding and post-wedding festivities, and my bridal party and friends loves them! Almost felt like they are a family! Anyways, Glennie and her team are really organized. One of my bridesmaid told me she wanted to change something but Glennie said no. It’s all professionalism. She’s doing exactly what I asked her to do and hired her to do. Any revision by others would have made a problem.

Michele was an amazing wedding planner. In addition to being very detailed oriented, she was very communicative, accommodating, and understanding. She knew when to handle the details on our behalf, and when to pull us in for our input. She came with great referrals for all of the other parties needed to throw a wedding ceremony. Planning for a wedding is always a bit stressful, but on the day-of, I was worry-free about the ceremony and reception -- it all went off without a single hitch.

My experience with Moments Remembered Events was nothing short of phenomenal. With top event planner Lykai's expertise, creative eye, and experience my events were made special to say the least. Lykai was at my every call to put my mind at ease when planning not only my wedding but bridal and baby shower! Three very special once in a lifetime milestones. Her professionalism is unmatchable, Lykai makes herself available even in her own personal time and goes the extra ten miles to ensure not only satisfaction but pure gratification. The events she planned were my firsts so she listened and led me in the right direction to make it my own. With her knowledge of outside vendors she was able to make everything come to life on time and budget. Hey style and creativity bring your dreams to life, whether contemporary or timeless classic. I will use Moments Remembered Events for all of my future sentiments.

Krista did my wedding invitations and my wedding favor tags. I was blown away! Every aspect of planning my wedding was becoming more and more stressful, and the first fun thing I did for my wedding was to work with Krista on making a design for my invitations. I did not have a clear vision of what I wanted and Krista helped me to make decisions through small steps. It was overwhelming looking online at all sorts of different invitations, but Krista asked me simple questions that helped me to weed out what I didn’t want and discover what I did want. I ended up with an overall product that really gave guests a glimpse into what the wedding would be like. I had so many compliments on my invitations, and they were one of a kind. Krista was always quick to respond to me, met all of her deadlines, and never even batted an eye when I asked for MULTIPLE revisions. Her attention to detail is amazing, and there is nothing I would change about my final product. I had no idea that I could get custom invitations at a reasonable price. Only a few weeks before my wedding I asked if Krista could help me with my favor tags since I was running out of time to do them myself. Krista came up with an amazing design that matched our invitations and had them to me in record time. Working with Krista on the invitations and favor tags was probably the smoothest part of planning my wedding. With Babies on the brain I know I will be in touch soon to help with baby announcements and kid birthday parties. I am a customer for life. Thank you Krista!!!

We had Portero Concierge handle our 50 wedding anniversary party. Everything went off without a hitch. The setting and the attention to detail was superb. Marni was as excited as we were about our party. We highly recommend Portero for all of your event needs big or small. Even day to day activities that you just don’t have time for.
