Julia was fantastic at our recent Dragon Boat event, she showed up, dressed with us for the event in pirate clothes and was wonderful with the children at the event. We will welcome her back next year to add her artistic flair to our event, a true talent.
We hired Vickie for the Baby Shower. Vickie did an amazing job decorating the event hall. My wife was excited after seeing the arrangements that Vickie made. She was thrilled and happy that the event was well panned and managed. All the guests were also impressed with the event (decoration and planning). It was one of the best days of our life. All the credit goes to Vickie for making this event a memorable one.
Tammie did a wonderful job as my Day Of Coordinator! I don’t know what I would have done without her. She was knowledgeable about anything and everything, and helped us to worry A LOT less when it came to the actual wedding day. Worth every penny!
This was the best experience I’ve had with an event decorator. She was responsible, responsive, honest and helpful. So thorough. And the event was BEAUTIFUL!!!
Terry reached out to me as I was on the look-out for a wedding decorator. She took the time to listen to my vision/needs, then added some of her own suggestions (after checking in with me) and delivered a beautiful mandap along with some matching aisle decor for my Indian wedding! She offered to even do a trial set up at the venue and coordinated everything with the venue herself, which made it easier for me. Even when we had a slight miscommunication, she was so graceful about it and we were able to get back on the same page very quickly! She is hard working, easy to work with and I would definitely recommend her to future brides! Thanks Terry :)
Whenever it comes to everything that’s my color events. Their work speaks for them . There is a different between event planner/ designer and CEWP( certified event and wedding planner ) which I was not aware until I had the opportunity to see my color event’s work. When elegance and aristocratic design meshes up that’s my color events !!!!
Sorry i don't have pictures but it looked fabulous. They kids loved tge balloons at my baby shower because they had a great time with all my decorations. They placed looked absolutely create with balloons decorations. Thank you for your service.
We used New Canaan Florist for our wedding and they did an amazing job from start to finish! The shop and employees are welcoming from the minute you walk in the door. We had a consultation with the florist and he was attentive while I described what we were looking for and then he continued to ask for all the small details while diligently taking notes. He had creative suggestions that fit into the theme of the wedding (even for things that weren't related to the flowers). The flowers were gorgeous and perfectly matched to my bridesmaid dresses (we left them with a swatch of the fabric) and they tied the whole wedding theme together. I felt comfortable and confident in my florist from the minute I picked New Canaan Florist (which all brides should)! I would highly recommend them for any event. Thank you to the whole team!
Laurie is a pleasure to work with. She has a keen eye for design and will make any event a truly special one. We had a very short period of time to decorate before our event and she knocked it out of the park! The pavilion was beautiful. Our guests were also commenting on how beautiful the decorations were. I plans on using True Vintage by Jade Interiors for my future events.
I got engaged on May 2, 2012. From that day on, my mind, body and soul was in wedding planning mode. The first couple of months of wedding planning werent too bad because there really wasnt much that my fiancé and I felt like we needed to do besides selecting a date and finding a venue. Boy were we wrong. I mean, neither of us had planned a wedding before so we had no idea what was in store. It was when I stared to get mini migraines and panic attacks when thinking about vendors, décor, transportation, themes, food selection, guest list management, etc., that I knew that we needed help. My searches for wedding planners lead me to the Knot, WeddingWire and Craigslist. On September 25, 2012, I came across an ad on craigslist for Events by Jackie M. Even though I have always been skeptical of any craigslist ad, something told me to contact Jackie M. This was one of the best decisions of my life. From our first meeting with Jackie M, to our last meeting prior to my wedding day, Jackie was prepared, knowledgeable about her craft, open to hearing any and all ideas, forthcoming with her own ideas, but not too pushy or forceful about it, always smiling from ear to ear, super responsive with emails, texts, calls, aware of budgets and able to find affordable alternatives to capture her clients vision, organized beyond belief with notes and reminders of each meeting she has with her clients, able to attend as many vendor meetings as her clients would like her to. I could go on and on and on about how essential Jackie M was in making my wedding day and planning process up to that day stress free and everything I could ever dream it to be. My fiancé, Vlad, was very skeptical about getting a planner. He swore we didnt need one and that we could do it all on our own. I was shocked to see how quickly after our first meeting with Jackie his tune changed. Even though she didnt know it, she was able to convince him just by her attitude and honesty. Additionally, our wedding venue also offered a wedding coordinator. Jackie did not view this coordinator as competition, but rather made sure to work hand in hand with her to ensure that the venue stayed informed of all my many details and expectations. Jackies ability to work well with all my vendors was very impressive and also put my fiancé and I at ease. Never did we have to step in to any uncomfortable matters because Jackie already had it covered. On the day of the wedding, September 28, 2013, Jackie was outstanding. We had a total of 262 guests. Jackie was professional, but very personable to all of our guests. I had many family members tell me after the wedding how helpful Jackie was in helping them find their seats or keeping the guests informed about what was going on. Jackie also created our ceremony programs which were beautifully made and also decorated our ceremony pergola. So beautiful! She also put together our reception centerpieces as well as other décor surprises that she included for us. We loved them all! I highly recommend (and have already) Jackie M to anyone in need of a phenomenal wedding planner who is easy to get along with, open minded, readily available even though she has clients and weddings booked almost every weekend. She is also very affordable and willing to work with all wedding budgets. Events by Jackie M. is a wedding planning experience you cant afford to miss!
As executor of my brother's estate I hired Kathryn Kavicky to stage his house for sale in a very difficult market and economy. The house was at a great disadvantage in comparison to other homes in the area. She did a great job and was able to highlight the home's great features--yet making it cozy and desirable. I also hired Kathryn to help me get our antique colonial decorated in advance of several large Christmas gatherings last year. She has an eye for flowers, draperies, table settings and general ambiance - and she did a wonderful job. I would certainly hire her to stage my own house if and when we decide to sell. Kudos to a multi-talented lady (and she's very nice to work with; organized and budget-conscious).
Lara and her team are wonderful! Creative, hardworking, great at every stage of the event, and such a pleasure to work with. Simply the best!
