Alisa is very professional. Her food was very delicious and everyone enjoyed her cooking. On Nov 9, 2014 our non profit outreach organization held a fund raising event. Everyone told me her food was out of this world. I highly recommend Alisa's services. Alisa is amongst the best around the Bay Area. My husband Garth, myself and our volunteers enjoyed Alisa and her tasty dishes.

This review does not fully compare to the actual experience of having Mimi as our wedding planner. My husband and I fell in love with her! I was referred to her by a friend a month or so before my wedding. You can imagine the details that needed to be done before that time frame. Not only did she take on the challenge of helping us, but went out of her way so our day was perfect. I live in concord, and she drove out 1 1/2 away to come meet with us several times. She kept good track of the things that still needed to be done. Her organization was phenomenal! Constant communication and support were there more than 100% (even for my emotional days) Besides the planning, she took care of the table centerpieces herself! Which were beautifully made with natural flowers on all 15-18 tables including our head table. Our guests, including vendors we hired were so impressed with her work, and most importantly by my husband and I. She found the best deals possible and made everything perfect yet affordable for us. Not only would we consider going through her all over again, but know we will continue to use her for future events and highly recommend her. We know that we didn't just find a good event/wedding planner, but a great friend that we will keep in touch with. Thank you again Mimi for helping us with our unforgettable perfect day!

Extremely helpful in planning a reception for family & friends after my Father's funeral. All coordinated online, menu developed and pricing more than acceptable. Laurel was responsive, attentive & flexible attending to my changing requests. The Service was yesterday & the food was exceptional. The staff could not have been nicer or more considerate. I would definitely use this service again, hopefully for a happier occasion. Thank you Laurel & your team - an outstanding job!

I was overwhelmed about a cocktail party I had to arrange for a friend. I didn't have the time or the know how. Jessica from Joyeux events came in and totally helped me and took my stress away. She took what I had imagined and made it come to life. Everybody enjoyed it and I would recommend her services to anyone who asked.

Gabriel and his team went above and beyond to make my welcome/rehearsal dinner on my wedding weekend the best! I reached out to him after reading other good reviews of this food truck and he called me back the same day and helped me find the perfect location! He talked to people who had their own venues also in order to help me. On the day of the event, they were set up and serving food on time, they provided music for the park and they were totally concerned with making me and my husband happy with everything. Without requiring extra compensation, he provided coolers for the booze we brought ourselves and he didn't require us to have bartenders or anything. However, if we wanted bartenders he would have helped us get them. Did I mention how amazing the food was?!? Everyone from our wedding is still raving about the pizzas and brisket that was served! It was so delicious!!!! Gabriel helped me out the whole way with this experience and I couldn't be more grateful! This food truck is a class act with top-of-the-line food. I'm the happiest customer, and I'm sure you would be too! Highly recommended!

We hired Danny to do the decoration for our house warming. Danny is very detail oriented and professional. He not only offered services that were agreed upon but also provided some extra decor for no cost. He is very passionate about his work and is great at what he does. I am very happy with his work and would hire him again for my next event.

I had a surprise birthday party that my girlfriend used Meilleur Ami to help plan. I was so surprised when I got to the venue and everything was set up perfectly. The food was arranged very professionally and was always full! She had my favorite beers and again they were always full. The decorations were just well thought out and tailored to me like she knew me!! I had a great time and Alysia was attentive and in control from beginning to end! Thanks for helping make my birthday great and seamless. And stress free! We will use her services again!!! 5 Star!

Kris was the officiant at our wedding as well as the ceremony and reception coordinator. She is the absolute most organized person I know and understands and respects deadlines. She met with me numerous times throughout the planning of our wedding, and after listening and taking notes about what I wanted, she took charge and completely organized the ceremony, was in charge of delegating tasks to people in a clear manor, all the decorations for the reception, place settings, room design, decorations at the ceremony cite all while making sure all our immediate family members and bridal party were taken care of. I never had to worry about decisions she would make, as I had complete trust in her ability to create what I had invisioned for my special day. On a side note, she also coordinated our engagement party, and it turned out to be a total blast for everyone! I would recommend her to anyone planning a wedding who needs a coordinator or officiant. I have absolutely no complaints. She is professional, understanding, caring, devoted and she really puts her heart into it, as if she was planning it for her own son or daughter.

Christina and her team at CRC Custom Events were amazing! We would 100% recommend her. We hired her for day-of coordination and venue decor. She did so much for us leading up to the wedding and making sure we were thinking through everything. She is easy to work with and we were able to trust her to use her own judgement with some of the decor arrangements. Seriously, our wedding looked so beautiful; above and beyond our expectations!

    Brie was amazing! We provided a strict timeline and Brie followed it without making our guests feel like they were being told what to do. She was warm and genuine with complete strangers. She checked in with us (the grooms) to make sure we were taken care of. The set up of our venue was flawless. A couple of issues arose and we never would have known because Brie had a solution. Do yourself a favor and hire Brie.

    About

    I am very customer oriented and very creative along with possessing skills of mechanical apptitude. I have a tendency to "invent" something, if necessary, in order to complete a task if a ready tool is not available. I have some tools of my own and have no problem using them whenever a project warrants. Sewing is another skill that serves well in many instances. Being creative is a huge help to fill in those areas that need a special touch. Many people don't realize what they already have that may be used in a pinch. Being able to adapt to a changing situation was an absolute necessity as a fire fighter, and fortunately that is another skill I use in various areas of daily living. Things don't always go as planned; and if I didn't learn that on the fireground, the job would be even more dangerous. Success depends on a person's ability to adapt, and I love the challenge. Dad told me when I was young that there are things a girl doesn't do. So I showed him and became a fire fighter! Wow, was that a big surprise! He was proud anyway and learned that my abilities were far more reaching, and I wasn't afraid to try to accomplish things outside the "norm". I don't give up without trying everything I can think of. I believe there are ways to make things fun without compromising the seriousness of a task. Having a sense of humor goes a long way as long as there is a good balance to being serious. I never leave anyone with an "I don't know."

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What does a wedding event coordinator do?

    Pulling off a large, complex wedding or an elegant, small affair requires juggling myriad details, including the officiant, food, drink, wedding cake, entertainment, transportation, rehearsal dinner, photography, equipment rentals, venue reservations and more. A wedding event coordinator can help you keep track of these details, overseeing the planning process and managing everything on the day of your wedding. Each wedding coordinator (and wedding) is different, but in general you can expect an event coordinator to:

    • Help you devise a realistic wedding budget and hold your vendors to it.
    • Map out a master plan that includes all of the details including ceremony music, favors, the guest book and more.
    • Suggest ceremony and reception locations that fit your wedding size, budget and vision.   
    • Suggest florists, photographers, bands, caterers and other vendors that fit your budget.
    • Negotiate vendor contracts for the best deals.
    • Create a timeline for the day of the wedding that includes each vendor and member of your wedding party.
    • Mail invitations and track RSVPs.
    • Answer questions about wedding etiquette and current wedding trends.
    • Manage the wedding day from supervising vendors and setup to handling last-minute emergencies.

    What is a wedding planner?

    A wedding planner is a professional service provider whose job it is to organize and execute all the details of a couple’s wedding. A wedding planner can be contracted at any stage in the wedding planning process to help to any degree the couple is willing to pay for. Wedding planning is similar to event planning in that a planning team handles the coordination of multiple wedding elements including catering, venue, guests, entertainment, decor, transportation and more. Anyone who has ever been involved in a wedding can confirm that wedding planning is hard work. Experience brings wisdom when it comes to avoiding or resolving day-of challenges. There is no legal regulatory body that oversees or certifies wedding planning as an industry. Anyone who chooses can call themselves a wedding planner. When looking for a wedding planner, be sure to read reviews, and make smart hiring decisions by asking about licenses and insurance.

    How much do day-of wedding coordinators cost?

    A day-of wedding coordinator makes sure that every detail of your wedding day goes off without a hitch, and deals quickly and quietly with any last-minute emergencies. For many brides, the day-of wedding coordinator is their best investment! The average national cost for a wedding coordinator is $800 to $1,000. Although full-service wedding coordinators often charge a percentage of the total wedding budget, most day-of coordinators charge a flat fee plus an additional hourly fee if the day runs long. For example, a 15-hour day-of coordination costs an average of $600, plus an additional $45 per hour if the coordinator works more than the planned 15 hours. Another option is to hire a coordinator to manage the last-minute details leading up to the event; for example, 25 hours of month-of coordination costs an average of $1,200. Several factors affect the cost of day-of coordination, including the region, the planner’s experience, and the specifics of the wedding. If the ceremony and reception are in two different locations, expect to pay more than if they’re in the same place. Also, extra details, such as managing food trucks or setting up snacks in addition to the meal, will increase the cost.

    What should you ask a wedding coordinator?

    When you hire a wedding coordinator, you want to make sure he or she gets you and can execute perfectly your vision of your dream wedding. To find the very best fit, it’s important to ask these five questions:

    • Are you available on my wedding date? If the coordinator isn’t available on your big day, there’s no reason to continue the interview — unless you’re willing to shift your date to accommodate their schedule.
    • What’s average cost of most of your weddings? If the coordinator’s usual wedding is outside your range, they might not be the right coordinator for you. Ask whether the coordinator requires a minimum wedding budget. In general, the wedding coordinator’s fee should be about 15 percent of your budget.
    • What is your speciality? Some coordinators specialize in day-of coordination, some create the overall vision, and others act as a producer. Make sure your wedding coordinator provides the type of services that will most help you create the event you have in mind, such as selecting vendors and handling their contracts, or managing the guest list and invitations.
    • What are your ideas for fulfilling our wedding vision? After you describe your dream wedding — rustic or sophisticated, traditional or funky — the wedding coordinator should be able to suggest appropriate venues, menus, decorations, etc..

    Do you have a portfolio? Ask to see photos of their favorite weddings, especially if they’ve managed any that are similar to what you have in mind. This will help you see if you like their style and if their ideas seem fresh and creative.

    Do I need a wedding day coordinator?

    Even if you’ve handled every detail of planning your wedding, you might appreciate having a day-of wedding coordinator in your corner. Usually, the coordinator meets with you a few weeks before your wedding to put together a detailed timeline of everything that needs to happen on your wedding day. Then, on the big day, the coordinator makes sure everything goes according to plan — and handles any emergencies that pop up, such as party crashers, missing tuxedos, late vendors, disappearing bridal party members and more. Most wedding coordinators also handle:

    • Distributing the wedding day timeline to all of your vendors.
    • Coordinating all of your vendors, including the photographer, florist and baker.
    • Conducting the wedding rehearsal.
    • Helping the bride and her wedding party get dressed and take photos.   
    • Checking floor plans, lighting levels, cake placement, menus, favors and more.
    • Collecting the wedding gifts and keeping personal items safe and accounted for.

    Even if you don’t think you need a wedding coordinator, check with your venue. Some require that couples hire a day-of wedding coordinator for the day of the event. 

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
