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 👍🏻

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.

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 was extremely pleased with how LV decorated my 18th birthday party! From the start, LV was very cooperative and although my parents' had a tight budget for my debut, LV worked around it and decorated the venue just how I had described how I wanted it to look! She was very creative with her ideas and organized in her thoughts while preparing for the party. Aside from decorations, she hooked us up with an awesome dessert place that provided us with a birthday cake as well as party favor macarons that had EVERYONE going crazy for! She had also provided a photo booth service as well as cute props to match the celebration which turned out super nice. LV did an amazing job overall, I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for a party planner. She definitely worked above and beyond for us!

I hosted a dinner party for my husband's 40th two weeks ago and hired Chris to cook for our 30 guests. From the initial planning stage through the night of the event Chris was on top of everything. He was incredibly responsive and professional during all of our communication and the service and food was top notch the night of the event. We had plenty of picky eaters at the dinner party and everyone raved about the food. I look forward to another opportunity to work with Chris again!

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!

We hired a bartender to serve our Halloween party of approximately 40 guests. It was a late booking and due to lack of communication on the company's side, I was left stressing the day of the party not knowing if someone was going to show up. Thankfully, Von showed up and was fabulous. Other than the miscommunication, the service was great and they worked with my budget. I will use this company again.

We had EventSpell decorate and manage everything for my bridal shower and they did a phenomenal job! I was blown away at how great the tables and centerpieces looked. The wall that was decorated was truly spectacular. It takes someone with a great sense of imagination and design to have transformed the area from an empty dull clubhouse into a Great Gatsby themed shower. I was awestruck by everything because it felt like I was stepping back into time. I could not have asked for a better shower and Ishita did a great job with everything! I would highly recommend her services to anyone planning a party, wedding, shower, etc!

I don’t know where to start. Elizabeth, you have been absolutely amazing. My engagement party wouldn’t have happened without you. You are professional, energetic, and I had a blast working with you. From the very beginning of planning to the very end, you were always there with great advice. You understood my busy schedule and made the planning process super easy. I don't know how anyone plans any event without a coordinator. I was not stressed at all because I knew you had everything under control and every detail covered. Thank you for making my engagement party so amazing! I highly recommend Elizabeth as a coordinator. Thank you for everything!

It was a pleasure to work with Vanessa. She catered to our needs and made my 40th Birthday Party spectacular. She has a lot of great connections with a baker (who made amazing dairy-free cupcakes and cake), lighting, and food. What a gem!

Julia planned my Bridal Shower and Bachelorette Party and did an AMAZING job. She is so organized and creative - two of the most important things in an event planner! My girlfriends and I had such a great time at both parties thanks to Julia. Don't miss the opportunity to work with her because she is outstanding!!!!!!

Debi & her team are the best resource I know of for party and event help. We've used her for charity events, birthday and anniversary party planning, execution and gift help, decorating for the holidays. I also had Debi help with team parties. No detail is left out or unattended to. She's organized, creative, and fun to work with.

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.

My desire to plan parties and weddings started about 2 years ago when I was asked to plan my first baby shower. I love what I do because at the end of the day, I get to make people's visions come alive, and I also get to see them smile.
