Valet parking, security, and clean up crew for wedding at private estate in Beverly Hills on Saturday, June 27, 2015. Eddy personally handled my wedding needs with the utmost care and professionalism. He arrived the day before while the other vendors were setting up to inspect the estate, and also was present both during the Saturday wedding as well as Sunday clean up. I greatly appreciate his firm being able to provide/handle all my service needs. The valets promptly and courteously parked all my guests vehicles while serving as the front line in guarding against tourists from entering the estate. All the valets had uniforms on as well as the security guards arrived in a black suits with ties. Every guard did their job while courteously addressing all my guests. Finally, the clean up thoroughly cleaned the estate the next day with no damage. Eddy and his crew did everything they were supposed to do, and did so professionally, courteously, and promptly. Incidentally, one of my wedding guests used Eddy's service for his Malibu wedding in 2014, and was equally satisfied. The host/owner of the estate also enjoyed Eddy's service, and though I have not followed up, indicated he would use Eddy. Lastly, Eddy is a retired policeman. What this potentially means is that he has a way to chat up other police officers in case you need help managing police when you party or event may run a tad long into the evening or is too loud ;-)
The best party planners in Los Angeles. Anything I envisioned, they delivered above and beyond, providing me not only with the set up but as well as all the rentals in budget price!
Mark is a fabulous chef, event planner and host. His Pacific Rim influenced cuisine is beyond belief. Every time we've hired Mark to cater events/parties my guests ask for some of their favorites, including his coconut shrimp and his ahi tuna tartare. My family even requested him to cater a special Christmas dinner - a delicious memory as always with Mark Kearney. Whether an intimate dinner party or grand event - Mark's the best choice!
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!!
It was a small detail but it would have been nice to know when they had started their route to the party site.
I hired Ricki, my Special Event Genie, to work her magic (and dedicated hard work) on my 70th Birthday Party. Every detail was absolutely perfect. Ricki kept in touch with me by phone, text and in person meetings from the day I hired her, came to my event hours early and stayed late to manage clean up. She knew every aspect of party planning from table position and centerpieces that maintain a theme to creative displays to timelines — All of my guests enjoyed interacting with her and everyone had a good time.
Terri went above and beyond as a wedding florist. She was extremely detail oriented, she's a great listener to her clients needs. She's extremely patient, the nicest person I've ever met in LA. She's was very in tune with my budget and she even spoke up for me when I felt like I was being pushed over my my venue prior to the wedding. I'm extremely happy with her services and would recommend her to everyone I know. The only thing I didn't like was the color of my bouquet wasn't the exact color to the picture I sent her and the gazebo decorations wasn't as fancy as I envisioned but that could be due to lack of availability to flowers during the season or my budget. Terri definitely would make any bride comfortable working with her though.
I am a DJ and I have worked with many event planners over the years. Michelle is one of the very best! I find her to be very professional, knowledgable and always prepared. Weddings in particular can have unexpected moments and she handles them with grace and ease. She takes the time to make sure the events she manages are special, memorable and fun! She has a style of class and elegance - and she really seems to care that the clients are having a good time.
I reached out to Nicole and her team for a client who unfortunately fell through (their loss!). Nicole was very attentive, enthusiastic, and delivered in a timely manner. I hope to work with her and her team in the near future, as I was very excited to bring One Last Frog for this project.
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.
Mari Deno was absolutely amazing! I knew from the moment I met Mari that she was perfect to plan our event. I could tell she had a genuine passion and idealistic approach when it came to event planning. Her professionalism, patience and confidence put us right at ease and I felt comfortable letting her take control. Mari's attention to detail and organizational skills were outstanding. She made our World theme event an absolute success from beginning to end. Her creative decor, colorful displays and the most exquisite food displays were visually a feast for the eyes. Mari is budget conscious and offers very reasonable rates. She made our event enjoyable, stress free and easy. I highly recommend Mari for her professionalism, courtesy and her ability to understand your vision and follow through. I look forward to working with Mari with other future events.
Elias Events did an amazing job for my mother’s birthday party. Joelle planned everything for us, she provided an excellent service by giving us options, being punctual and working within our budget. Our event had about 100 people and she manage to keep everything under control with no mishaps. Joelle truly provides a luxury service. We can’t wait to work with her again!
What a wonderful experience it was. I got a beautiful arrangement for a birthday party I was attending in LA. People at the party were blown away with how fabulous it looked and I referred them to Victoria. I will defiantly return to place another order. Thank you!
Donna and her team were amazing. I would recommend to anyone planning an event. She made us feel special and overall comfortable from our very first meeting with her. We hired the team for our wedding which was about two weeks ago. Every single one of her staff members was always courteous and attentive at the actual event. The food was amazing. We were impressed with the food right off the bat at our tasting. It was delicious! At the actual event, guests raved about the appetizers and food. Days after we still were getting positive feedback. They enjoyed the taste as well as the fact that it was not greasy. The cake was beautiful and exactly as we pictured it. We had given her a picture and her team made it exactly. Donna herself is such a sweet person. To me, feeling comfortable with someone is very important. If I do not feel comfortable then pretty much the outcome is that I will be unhappy the whole time or I will end up switching, but with Donna, right from the very first meeting I felt like she was the right person to trust such as big event in our lives to. Our wedding was small, (no more than 85) and each one of our guests said the staff (everyone involved) was SO nice. We recommend Donna to anyone and everyone!!!
At first I didn't think I needed a wedding planner, but when I hired Ester (Sister), I found out how many things where missing in my plans. I couldn't have done it without her. Everything went great, from start, to finish. I thank her for making my wedding the best experience ever. Five Stars all the way!!
Karen is amazing! Words can't adequately express my appreciation of this wonderful lady. She did so much to make our event a success and to relieve the stress related to hosting a wedding. We hired Karen to be our "coordinator for the day" for our daughter's wedding. Even though the wedding was small (about 60 guests) and in our home, we wanted someone to help so that WE could be guests ourselves and enjoy the wedding. I did quite a bit of research before choosing and I'm so glad that we chose Karen. She has an infectious smile that puts you at ease immediately. She is also extremely professional and knowledgeable. She asked a lot of questions so that she would have a better idea of what we were envisioning. She had great practical ideas that helped with the flow of the event. We felt like we were in really good hands. When Karen arrived on the day of the wedding, she absolutely blew me away! I gave her a quick tour of everything that was happening and she just took it from there. It was like she was family and had been there a million times. She stayed two steps ahead all night and really made the evening stress free. She has a very unique quality in that she can take charge and provide direction in the nicest most nonabrasive way. When she lets guests know that it's time to move out to the patio for cocktails, or that we're ready for a toast, grand entrance, cake cutting etc. everyone listens and no one feels like they are being "bossed around". When guests left, she did so much to help wrap things up that I actually had to tell her to stop. She's so thoughtful. She pays attention to the smallest details and she really listens. I know Karen has done hundreds of events from large and elaborate to small and intimate. No matter what kind of event your planning, Karen will make it better and she will make your life easier! Thank you Karen for allowing us to relax and truly enjoy Maegan and Danny's wedding! Warm regards, Shelly and Bob
I couldn’t have asked for a better party planner. From the very first meeting I knew Rubina and her team would take care of everything. On the day of the party I didn’t have to worry about anything, and just showed up. Everyone loved the decorations and the professional staff. Would recommend highly for any type of event.
My name is Lynette Vanderhorst President of "Single Mothers with Cancer ". Ms. Griffin has been my event planner for the past 2 years. She first came aboard to plan my Introduction Dinner party. She did an amazing job. She has a special way of capturing your moment with a elegant edge. Every event she planned for me I was impressed. Ms.Griffin is an great asset to my company. I can leave everything up to her and she makes every experience unforgettable.
I feel so incredibly lucky that I found Kelly through Thumbtack! From the beginning, she was easy to communicate with, responsive with emails and texts, and made my big day so much easier for me. She was very thorough, and when I thought I had all the details figured out, she would point something else out which didn't even cross my mind. She's a pro at what she does and does it with such grace despite the chaos of coordinating a wedding. Thank you so much for everything you did for me on my big day!!!!! You are absolutely incredible at what you do! :)
Deuce was truly a lifesaver when it came to planning my husband’s 40th birthday party. I wanted something that would be unforgettable but still within my budget and Deuce was able to come through with everything I wanted and more. I consider myself a pretty creative planner but I definitely pale in comparison to Jackie’s creativity when it comes to decor, presentation, and making the whole event from start to finish very memorable for my husband. Jackie is one of the sweetest, most creative people I have met in this industry and I would recommend Deuce to ANYONE who is planning any event or party. It’s worth every penny spent. Thank you Deuce!!
Lisa designed and coordinated my baby shower last May and to say that it exceeded expectations does not even begin to cover it. Working with her was an absolute pleasure. I told her my idea was to have an English tea party and she took it from there. The thoughtfully created details are what really touched me and made it a perfect day. Lisa will think of everything and ensure that your event is beautifully curated and beyond memorable. I highly recommend using A Perfect Day for your event.
