Hire Fresh and Fizzy; they are great to work with! We had a wonderful corporate event in Golden Gate Park and Drew and his team did a great job bartending!
Michael is 5 stars in all aspects. I needed a bartender for my husband's office party. He was easily reachable by text/email with all my questions pre party. Michael even made a special butter rum for one of our signature drinks. Very professional, easy to talk to and engaging to all the guests. During the "down" time he would help toss cups and clean up without me even asking. I already hired him again for our next party. I wish I had met him sooner! He does event planning, flower arrangements, home organization and who knows what else. Hire him for a job well done and someone you can depend on.
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 did a fantastic job coordinating my wedding. I did most of the prep work, and then she made sure the day went off without a hitch! She made sure follow my wishes for the overall feel of the day and there was no detail left out. We definitely couldn't have done it without her! I would recommend her to anyone I know for wedding/event coordination and planning. Thank you for making our day so special!
Manya from "Dazzling Streaks" helped me organize a large (close to 100 people) semi-corporate event that we hosted at our house (not so large). It worked out perfectly as she was able to come up with great suggestions that had my own vision and requirements for the event in-focus at all times.. Her personalized service made it a fun event to plan for and at the end of the event, I had super happy and satisfied guests!
We had a few hiccups with our event and had to change venues late in the planning process. This did not phase Matt as a problem in the least and was quick in finding the perfect new venue. Also, our budget did not allow for the anticipated amount for decor. Again, Matt worked his magic and the decor was a complete hit, really tying together our 80s themed Prom Night. Matt stays cool, calm, and collected throughout the whole planning process, which really adds to an overall smooth experience. If you are looking for an event planner, here is your guy!
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!
Working with limelight has truly been a blessing! I feel like the wedding process is such a big blur, and both Khadija and James have given my family and I clarity. The amazing part is that they work with your budget, and find ways to make ends meet. My wedding is in July, and I honestly can't wait to see the finished product! If you're planning an event Limelight is the way to go :)
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.
Wanting to learn to cook lower calorie food that still had great flavor, I hired Zac to come to my home and teach in our kitchen. My husband is our (excellent) cook, I am not a cook (at fifty-something years old), presenting a bit of a challenge. Rising to the occasion, Zac planned a meal that read like the menu at French Laundry! Panic!There was no way I could prepare this meal. Zac said...Way! He met me at Sonoma Market to introduce me to fresh everything, not packaged anything! Back at our kitchen, the magic began and WOW! Probably one of the most delicious dinners I've ever had at home, and certainly rivaling 5 star restaurants. Our cooking and dining experience was nothing short of superb and better yet, not a dollop of butter or a drop of cream was used to create the fantastic soup, salad, and complex main course. Through Zac's exceptional knowledge of herbs and spices, he taught me to create extraordinary flavors to enhance the food, and not over power it. It was a brilliant evening of cooking! Zac is easy going, yet very assured, and his ability to communicate is second to none. Remarkable job by a talented young man who will be continuing to educate us in the kitchen and most assuredly catering events for us. Bravo, Zac...Bravo!
Raquel and Divinity Events bartended at our corporate event and were the perfect addition to the night. They were so professional, punctual, and friendly. Our guests enjoyed themselves so much, and we could not have been happier. I would recommend Divinity Events for any event!
Lura was awesome and helped me right from the start - from initial planning to day of coordination and honeymoon planning! She has a ton of creativity and is a joy to work with. Highly recommended!
Jess did a really great job in planning my daughter's first birthday. I'm not much of a creative person so Jess had to plan the theme, the colors, the decor pretty much by herself. She found really nice stuff on etsy and took such good care of putting them up together. she went out of the way on many occasions to ensure a successful party. All my guests loved the decor. I highly recommend Jess if you are looking for an event planner!
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.
We were both very happy with the service and professionalism Heidi and Ashton brought. Things ran so well and we could not be happier!
Krista did a GREAT job helping us with our event. She thought through all the details and made sure everything was perfect. We did the event at my home and she arranged everything from the valet to caterer to flowers to party table and linen rentals. We would definitely love to work with her again and I had people ask me for her contact information while they were at our party. Thanks for the amazing event Krista!!!
Kendra was great at coordinating lots of moving parts with multiple vendors throughout the month leading up to our wedding. On the day before, she helped us with ceremony timing during rehearsal, then went to the otherside of SF during rush hour to setup decor at the reception venue. On the day of, she put signage around our Golden Gate Park site to make it private (we had a permit), oversaw ceremony rental chairs setup and clean up, string quartet setup, and a surprise ice cream taco cart during our reception. We spent the entire day having fun while Kendra took care of whatever issues might've come up. By the end of the night we were plastered and shoved into an uber by friends. Kendra took home our decor and cake then dropped it off at our place a few days later.
Sarah planned several of my European vacations. She is always on top of the up-and-coming events and restaurants, know the 'must-sees' in every city, and always plans down to the smallest detail. Her confidence in traveling, keen eye for unique experiences, and enthusiasm for exploring the world made her the perfect person to plan my holidays when I was both busy and overwhelmed with travel options. I am constantly blown away by her research and planning skills, as well as her ability to find hidden gems of travel destinations and experiences that the average person with a guidebook has never heard about.
I had a last minute party that came up. I reached out to Maria for help planning and putting the party together. She was very professional and provided multiple options for me to pick from. She stayed in contact with me every step of the process. The party was a hit. Everybody enjoyed themselves. Thanks Maria
Shannon was so great! She did my baby shower and the attention to detail and creativeness was stellar. She clearly loves what she does because the results are amazing. She is such a joy to work with and would have her plan my next event anytime!
