We had a wedding rehearsal dinner on a Friday and I connected and ordered on Tuesday of the same week. Professionals all the way and the food was outstanding! Thank you Evan and Gabby!

Elizabeth was absolutely amazing! We hired her two month before our wedding and are sooo glad we did. From the first day we met we knew she was a perfect fit for us. During our first meeting she asked us a whole list of questions, some of which we hadn't even thought of, just to get to get a feel for what we had done so far and what we would need help on, it was a really great first impression. Elizabeth was there with us when our venue tried to jack up the prices of everything a month before the wedding. She emailed a not so pleasant catering manager and made sure every single detail was taken care of, she even got them to throw in a complimentary hot chocolate at our beverage station. She brought so much wedding experience and it really helped guide and shape our wedding. She took care of the little details that someone who has never been married would surely miss. She set up all of our decor day of and was main contact person for any and all things. I got to sit back and enjoy getting ready with my bridesmaids instead of running around making sure everything was perfect. Elizabeth had it handled and she decorated exactly as we discussed if not better! She threw in some touches I didn't even think of! When we were missing something or a decoration wasn't working she knew how to troubleshoot and make it work, which took an enormous amount of pressure on my husband and family. All of our guest had nothing but good this to say about Elizabeth. She was great about directing and moving people where they needed to go with a smile on her face. Never being impolite or pushy, but firm enough so people actually listened. At the end of the night we got to say our good byes and ride off into the sunset. While she coordinated with our family and bridal party and made sure everything was packed, cleaned, and out of the venue right on time. The day after the wedding she called and checked in on us to make sure everything was ok. Elizabeth went above and beyond with us and we are so glad we hired her. I would recommend her to anyone as a day of coordinator or full service wedding planner, she was an absolute dream!

Actually I didn't meet the LadyMarry coordinator and florist, until the rehearsal day, because I was planning my wedding remotely in New York. They are very responsive and patient to my endless questions, and did a great job about organizing the rehearsal and communicating with the other vendors. I always saw Melissa and Donna running around. Hiring you was the best decision I made for my wedding. Thank you!

We were extremely happy with Taneva Events. We wanted a simple but elegant wedding in Hawaii and Velina at Taneva Events provided that and more for us. She worked with us on everything from the smallest detail on the dinner napkins to working with vendors on logistical details, setup on the day of the wedding and ensuring our day was perfect. We did not have a clear idea of what we wanted to do for our wedding besides the fact that we wanted to keep it simple and take advantage of the natural beauty of the setting. Velina was really helpful from the start, brainstorming ideas with us, and making suggestions for the decor that we would have never thought of on our won. We did not want traditional flower centerpieces, and Velina was able to accommodate us by creating beautiful pineapple centerpieces, and tied them all together with the runner, candles, handmade napkins, and pedestals that she placed the pineapples on. Everybody complemented the decor and the bridal bouquet that she created from traditional Hawaiian flowers. We could not have had such a beautiful and smooth day without Velina's help. Planning for a wedding is always stressful, but Velina eased a lot of our stress and was always a pleasure to work with.

Thus far we have only completed the tasting, but Chef Judi & Chef Cyprus nailed it. They are wonderful listeners and have a great palate. My fiancee and I are complete foodies, therefore the food at our wedding is truly what the reception is about. We are confident that Taste-Full Events will provide our guests with the culinary experience we want them to have.

Anita was so quick getting back to me and so professional with her information and advice. Things changed and I no longer needed a bartender. If I did, I certainly would have wanted higher her!

Did an excellent job organizing the jungle safari theme for our son's first birthday party. Had animal cutouts, balloons, very good center pieces and nice creative touches by using various props to make it look like jungle safari. Service delivered on time. The decoration was done in time.

We hired Kristin to coordinate our wedding last September. She really put me at ease at our first meeting. She was organized, calm, and thought of everything - I really appreciated her experience and thoroughness. The best part is at the wedding itself, I barely saw her as she was so busy taking care of everything. I know from talking with my parents and wedding party afterward that she had handled all the little emergencies that had come up: schedule changes, cake-melting problems, etc., in the background, leaving me and my husband to enjoy ourselves. She really helped make our wedding perfect.
