Professional, experienced, and very competent. What you expect, what you need, and what you deserve for your wedding or event. In our initial consultation with 3 Little Birds Event Planning we described what we were thinking and our budget, and not to mention our compressed timeline. 3 Little Birds Event Planning was upfront about the challenges of the timeline, but expressed confidence that it could be done. Venue and vendor options were presented to meet our budget as well as options and ideas that were outside our budget should we want to incorporate additional things. Planning any project and event takes a very organized, detail oriented, experienced and well connected planner/company. But when it comes to a wedding, you only have one chance, there are no do overs, and you need someone who will make everything happen. Jessica Smith (3 Little Birds Event Planning) is all of the above and more. They can handle all of the business aspects (contracts, vendors, schedules, timelines, permits, etch, etc), but she also has an artistic eye and design style that provided such amazing ideas and direction to enhance and implement our theme. Trust me the small details that you may not think about make a HUGE difference. With my work schedule so hectic it was impossible for me get decorations or run around doing errands. Having a full service planner was not only helpful it was necessary. The money I would have lost from missed work, by far covered the difference between a day of event planner and full service planner. My recommendation is to go with the full service planner... it gives you the opportunity to have your event and vision grow organically as you meet and continually consult with your planner... not to mention the time and headaches your save yourself, trust me you will thank yourself for it. 3 Little Birds Event Planning is established and has many vendor connections (Florists, DJ, Photographers, Catering, Venues, Decorations, etc., etc.). What I really like is the fact that 3 Little Birds/Jessica Smith doesn’t force or pressure you to use her vendors. We vetted her vendors and chose to go with some of them, and some we didn't. All the vendors she recommended are professional and established and we were very pleased with the vendors she recommended. The vendors we didn’t use were not because of anything deficient, but rather because we had existing industry contacts and already knew great photographers and videographers. 3 Little Birds worked with the vendors they provided as well as the one we selected independently and brought everything together seamlessly. On the big day, things could not have gone any smoother. I was impressed, as were all of the guests. I was able to be present in the moment and truly enjoy our special day. All I can say is thank you, it was a true storybook/fairytale wedding.

The planning of the event was handled by Roy. Cannot say enough about the excellent service, positive input and feedback to our numerous questions that we received. Roy worked well with staying with in our budget. Will update how the event goes, if anything like the planning we are in for a real treat. Regards MB

I decided to look for a caterer for my Mom's celebration of life and my internet search lead me to Thumbtack. After inputting my needs I quickly received a response back from Tonya at Sierra Madre Catering with a detailed quote and attached menu. When I called to speak with Tonya I immediately got a good vibe from her voice. She seemed excited and eager to help plan our event and made me feel comfortable that everything would be taken care of. I am so thankful I decided to use Sierra Madre for my event. We ordered appetizers and desserts and they arrived and set everything up, brought their own trash cans and kept the tables clean as people were done eating. The staff was professional and nice and their food was DELICIOUS! Many of our guests gave feedback that the food was great and they even ran out of business cards because a lot of people were interested in having their info. At such a difficult time with the passing of a loved one, these details are important but not ones you want to worry about yourselves and Tonya and Sierra Madre staff took that burden off my shoulders and I am so thankful for that. I will recommend them to anyone in need of a caterer for any event and if I could give more than 5 stars I most definitely would!! Thank you Tonya and Sierra Madre Catering!!

BEST EVENT PLANNER, HANDS DOWN!!!! I hired Ingrid and her team last minute for decorations and event planning for a work party. By far, the best decision I've ever made. My wedding is in August, and I've went along and hired her for that event as well. She's proficient, efficient, and a visionary!! Her ideas are so thoughtful and personally organized! I am so impressed with her work and her expertise. She never ceased to amaze me. I got so many compliments on her flower arrangements and decorations that for so perfectly with the theme. I can't wait to see what she's got up her sleeve for my wedding in August. Also, this wasn't the first time I've hired Ingrid for an event. I hired her back in November 2015 for my MIL 50th birthday party. Her husband and herself, arrived much earlier for setup and made sure everything was the way we wanted it to look, before hey left the scene. They are so professional and such hard workers. I got a ton of compliments on their work that our family friend also hired her for her services for their wedding too! I will always refer Ingrid, without a doubt! She's my go-to person since Nov 2015.

Let me start by saying, most men think that they have it all figured out when it comes to women and dating. I know! I am one of those men. As a hopeless romantic myself, I never thought that I would benefit from a marriage proposal, date, and event planning company. I mean, what can they possibly show me that I haven't already thought of myself; little did I know I was in for a surprise. The ladies at OLF took care of everything for me. I mean the dinner location they chose was fantastic, they even gave me pointers on what wine to order with our steak, which was a big plus for me because it impressed my girlfriend that I was knowledgeable about a variety of wines. Prior to dinner they suggested that I take her on a short stroll where we ended up by a wall with LOVE written all over it, she was taking back by that and thought the wall was adorable. More brownie points for me. Thanks OLF. Aaaaaaaand to top it off, they had disguised photographer follow us throughout our date that snapped so many random pictures of us while we were out. I can honestly say that I was impressed with their planning and so was my girlfriend. I would recommend this company to men and women with experience on all dating levels, if they can blow my mind with their planning, imagine what they can do for YOU!

Ricki throws the greatest parties! Her events leave no detail untouched. Everything is perfect. And the best part is how much money she saves. Ricki and Special Event Genie have been doing events for my business group Wildfire Networking for several years now. We have annual holiday parties with sit down dinners and dancing to a DJ. Always gorgeous decorations, great food, good drinks, and at least 100 people. Ricki also arranges quarterly cocktail parties we call "mixers" and scores some great locations around West Los Angeles for us. I am looking forward to having her help with my next big birthday party! Call Special Event Genie if you want your wishes granted perfectly!

Work quality - phenomenal Professionalism - fantastic Responsiveness - Joanna couldn't have been more responsive if she tried. Value- heck yes! Do you know how pricey mobile bartending and catering vendors can be in LA? This company is a steal considering the amount of collaboration and quality of service your receive. Punctuality - On time, super fast in setting up, even faster tearing down. I highly recommend this vendor. I planned an entire event from another state and Joanna made me feel like I had nothing to worry about on her end. Will work with her again for sure.

Nikki’s a great bartender. She was able to turn around cocktails fast to guests. She’s quick at responding to you via email and she made it easy to pay her (by providing PayPal as an option for the deposit). The guests loved how we had someone shake them up drinks, and it was a relief we didn’t have to make them ourselves. I’m happy Nikki was available and provided us with excellent and friendly service!

LexiLou Events is a top notch special event company. They are very professional and were attentive to every detail. From the planning, to the final day, they made us feel special. Our wedding reception was truly magical. So much so that guests felt they were in "Miami". The draping was beautiful and flowed in the wind. Lighting was truly amazing. Decorations were magical. They will forever be our company to contract with for our next event. This company is worth every dollar. You will not be disappointed when you hire them. Alexia & Louis, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. <3

Iris did so much for us to make this our best holiday event to date. It was a breeze on my part, she did all of the planning, finding the DJ and venue. We worked together on menu items, and were able to taste test in advance. The salmon was amazing, as was the tri-tip. Iris is also a truly sweet person, and I enjoyed planning this event with her very much. She was very accommodating, and delivered as promised. Thank you! I would highly recommend her for your event planning.

Nancy is amazing! I hired Nancy to cook for my clients surprise birthday party and it was the best decision ever! The food was amazing and plentiful! My client was so happy with the way everything turned out and so was I. As an event planner it is very important to have a caterer you can count on, someone who knows exactly what to do, how to do it and what it means to be professional...Nancy you are all that and much more! Thank you for being amazing and I look forward to many more events together!

Tiffany was the day-of coordinator for our wedding back in August and let me tell you she was an absolute GOD SEND. She's very organized/detail-oriented and incredible at keeping track of all the moving parts of our wedding BUT what sets her aside from my other vendors is that she has this super friendly and happy personality that instantly puts you in this relax and calm state. I cannot stress how important that was for me to have someone on my side during all the wedding craziness. I had a couple difficult family members that were acting out on the wedding day and she handled all of them with ease and grace. You just know from beginning to end that her number one goal is to make the day run as smoothly as possible. Before the wedding day she answered every one of my emails and phone calls promptly and always made me feel prioritized. She also gave a lot of great advice based on her experiences wedding planning. Honestly, her prices are unbeatable for the level of service she provides. Snatch her up fast because her calendar fills up very quickly!

I hired Golden State Events for my wedding, they had a million things thrown at them. There were issues with the band, power for the microphone at the ceremony, hotel dropping the ball on meals for my guests, and I never heard a peep. Everything was taken care of and everyone had such an amazing time. Every detail was thoughtful and beautiful. Really grateful we were able to work with Golden State Events. I would recommend them a million times over! Thank you!!

The Perfectly Event Planning Team was wonderful - I'm a highly organized woman, and didn't think I would need any help for the day of my wedding. However, Jessell offered her services and I'm so happy we hired her. I was able to enjoy our wedding and the entire day and just let Jessell worry about the nitty gritty and the payments and the time-line and getting my husband to where he needed to be! We couldn't have done it without her and don't know that we would have wanted to! I highly recommend Perfectly Event Planning to anyone who needs a little order to their event.

I want to start off by saying that planning a wedding is no easy endeavor and despite how much I wanted to organize and execute every detail out between my fiancé and I, we both knew that we couldn't tackle a project like this without the help of someone. To give you some background, we were both living and working in South Korea while trying to plan a wedding in Los Angeles, Ca. We both knew that it was time to hire a coordinator and we both couldn't be happier or more deeply grateful for all of the help we received from the Lavishly Yours team. We were extremely lucky to meet and work with Katherine and Marixa. If you have any doubt in your mind about wedding coordinators, please do not hesitate to work with them. They will go above and beyond anything you expect. I felt so at home with them. Any detail, whether big or small, was never a problem for them and that not only gave my fiancé and me peace of mind, but when our wedding day came it went smoothly and we were able to enjoy every second of it. Thank you again, Lavishly Yours, for your kindness, hard work, creativity, commitment and passion. You're amazing at what you do and you make it look so easy!

Working with Lauren Kimble Events was quick and easy! Lauren is professional, attentive and affordable. I needed a florist at the last minute and she jumped in to take the lead on the flowers for my school event w/ 100+ guests. The flower arrangements matched the events theme beautifully!! I definitely recommend this florist and would hire again!
