Father Callaham officiated my catholic wedding last December. He did a wonderful job and I would recommend him to anyone. He made our wedding so simple classy sophisticated. He did the ceremony in both English and Spanish, even though he's not native Spanish speaker, he does it very well, very clearly. First, we spoke with him a couple of times over the phone and then we met in person. He wanted us to discuss with him how exactly was the wedding we dreamt of. He's a good listener and kept into account every detail we told him. He even gave us very good ideas of things that we weren't even thinking about, gave us a wide selection of beautiful and appropriate readings including from the Bible. I wouldn't think twice if I had to recommend father Callaham to anyone , very professional and also punctual! he arrive to the venue an hour earlier!! Just the best officiant! :)

This summer I married my soul mate. On August 16, 2013. Reverend Callahan was our wedding officiant. He was outstanding. The ceremony was beautiful and it was performed in both English and in Spanish. Thank you for making our ceremony so special and meaningful Reverend Callahan. Best Regards Yajaira & Jamaar

Reverend Callahan did an outstanding job for our wedding on 10/18/14. Always there to answer our questions when needed and all the guest were talking about the great job that he had done. I would most defiantly recommend Reverend Callahan to anyone getting married in the NY area.

For any couple taking on the overwhelming responsibility of planning a wedding themselves, this company successfully provided exceptional off-premise catering along with those special, personal touches desired to ensure a memorable DIY occasion. Laura from Sunflowers Catering helped us through every step of the way. She and her staff prepared an exquisite dining experience that fulfilled the exact culinary vision we desired. Going above and beyond the duties of a caterer, coordinated with the rental company, saved us money wherever possible. When other's tried to steer us in a more conventional direction, she encouraged us to follow through with every quirky, unorthodox idea we put forth to make our dream wedding become reality. The staff was supportive through what might have been a slightly chaotic, customized catering experience and our guests never stopped smiling. My husband and I were uncompromising foodies with unusual requests, unorganized at every moment...and now very satisfied clients! We promise you will be in good hands with Sunflowers Catering.

I can not describe the quality and service of Sunflowers Catering and Event Planning. Chef Laura and her staff are very organized and personable. From the very first phone call to the last hour of my parents 70th wedding anniversary party the service was beyond our expectations. Sunflowers works with your budget and provides the 5 star service and quality at 3 star prices that they claim to provide. We will use them again no questions asked. Thank you for making my parents milestone anniversary a very memorable one.

Laura and Sunflower are excellent! She has great culinary skills and is highly professional. I have my own wedding planning company and use Laura for my own personal events. She can work an intimate dinner party to a large scale cocktail with the same high level attention to detail. I highly recommend Sunflower!

Heather Hartley 1 month ago Quality of Service (5.0/5) Professionalism (5.0/5) Value (5.0/5) This vendor was amazing and literally took care of everything! (Our DJ showed up late and started to throw a fit and the owner of Desert Vines stepped in and took care of his issues allowing me to remain stress free on my big day). We had a specific vision in mind of every we wanted and they made it all happen and then some. They set up everything, decorated the entire venue (and we had 4 sites we used), made all the floral arrangements, made our welcome bags for our guests, made the appetizers, made all the desserts, made our wedding cake, and the owner even made my veil. We did a weekend long wedding and they were there every step of the way keeping everything on track. We felt so truly blessed to have everything taken care of, it allowed my husband and I to just relax and spend the weekend and our big day just celebrating each other with all our friends and family. We cannot express enough gratitude for all the hard work they put in throughout the year working with us, but also the day of.

I just hired Tammie to be my florist for my wedding. I originally was looking for someone to help decorate at my venue the day of. Low and behold she does it all! She has been quick to respond to all my emails and texts! She made it very convenient for us to meet at a bridal show we were going to already. On top of everything, her prices cannot be beat.. What more is there to say!? Stop searching, she's the real deal!

My fiance and I used Distinctive Visions event Management to take care of our wedding invitations and the service was nothing short of wonderful. I wasn’t entirely sure where I wanted to go with the style for them (we have 6 different colors in the wedding), but Nya was patient and helped lead us in the right direction. I am very happy with the final product, and we didn’t have to do anything except mail them! She worked hard to stay under our budget and was still able to deliver the perfect invitations. I will definitely use Distinctive Visions again in the future for more than just invitations.

Nya helped me plan my event and she came in ready to work. I was concerned about a planner coming in and taking over but she was assertive but mindful of my feedback. I appreciate her guidance as there were things I did not think about for the event. She helped me stay on budget and consider cost saving opportunities. I would recommend her services to anyone.

The luckiest part to have a good wedding is to find the right wedding planner. Ani is the one that you cannot miss. A good friend can try to assist you for the day and the plan, but sometimes more help or ideas you get and the busier you get because most people do not know about a wedding. Ani is the one who will turn to be your best friend and think in your shoes, at the same time, she knows what she’s doing and making everything goes as smooth as you can imagine. Ani is smart, sharp, calm, warm-hearted, and sweet. She gives you the peaceful mind that nothing will go wrong because she’s around to help you all she can. She gets things done and is always on top of her game. She’s punctuate and professional. She’s also creative to make your wedding unique and special. She’s flexible for anything you ask for the wedding. So many things could go out of expectations. And there you have Ani who comes the earliest and leaves the latest. She’s willing to listen and cover all the holes. She’s a great communicator. No matter the priest, or a huge wedding party or vendors, girls or kids, everyone loves Ani. She’s very patient. You just love her and thank God she’s there for you. She cheers for you and feels every moment of your big day. If you picture your wedding like all the movies full of romance and fairy tales, then you must have a wedding planner, you must have Ani. Because the real wedding is like a war, you have many things to do but you cannot do on your own, you don’t get enough sleep, you cannot have enough time talk to everyone you want to, there is so much crisis you have to deal with, you plan so well but everything still goes wrong. People could easier get frustrated and even a nervous breakdown for the mixed emotions of the wedding day, happiness, sadness, or you are touched, or you miss the people who cannot be there to share. The wedding day is hard, as beautiful as it could be, but I learned the lesson from my engagement party that I will have a wedding planner for my party. A year and half of preparation for this big day, it has to be perfect. Then, I have Ani and I am so thrilled I found her, she contributed so much to my perfect day. I walked into the reception and everything was exactly I wanted. She just knows, without too much explanation, without the back and forth. If you want to have regrets and more enjoyment for the biggest day of your life, then contact Ani. Her value is priceless.

I cannot say enough great things about Ani! She was the glue that held the morning of my wedding together and my only regret was not having her throughout the duration of my wedding day. Our venue provided a coordinator, but she didn't touch Ani's level. Ani is prompt, professional, organized and so sweet! She is everything you could ask for in wedding planner/coordinator. She made me feel so comfortable and confident everything was going to plan. I, myself am very type A and she could tell I was very concerned about the timeline. She was there every step of the way telling me how much time we had left or that we were "doing good on time". Exactly what I needed to hear. In addition, she kept my now husband and his groomsmen in the loop at a separate location and kept us all fed and hydrated. She was the best friend I'd met twice, but couldn't have done without on my big day. Thank you Ani!

Planning my wedding was incredibly strenuous, so I hired Ani as the day-of wedding coordinator. She took care of everything, including handling a few problems my bridesmaids had (I didn't even know about it until the next day). She made everyone feel comfortable and did a great job.

Starr and Skye Events displayed exceptional professionalism, patience and follow through. She demonstrates great attention to detail, adds special touches and approaches your concept with delicate candor and insight on improvements in decor and cost efficiency. It is certainly a relief when you can find an event planner that not only interacts well with you but promptly and efficiently communicates via email,phone or text messages to reassure you that everything is being handled accordingly. She demonstrated graceful patience in adapting to any changes or last minute add-ons. Her accessibility to vendors was of great assistance; her professional and cheerful demeanor towards the client and site personnel offered great insight to the kind of planner you want in charge of your event. If you have a vision for your next event, she will most certainly help it come to fruition with the greatest of ease. It was quite a pleasure working with her and will definitely utilize her again for future events. I highly recommend Starr & Skye for your one-of-a-kind event!

Absolutely amazing! Sheila was the hero of our wedding. Not only did she create stunning and unique arrangements with little guidance from me, everything was done exactly how I wanted it and I wouldn't change a thing! The floral arrangement were full and the flowers looked fresh the day of. She took my vision and brought it to life by adding her own little twist to make it unique. She has so many great ideas and is super helpful with planning out every little detail surrounding your big day. Loved working with her! She was also the most affordable and friendliest florist I had talked to! She truly went above and beyond and gave us the most beautiful and low stress wedding we could have had!

Our wedding wouldn't have functioned without Sheila. At our first meeting with Sheila many of my wedding worries went away, as I knew she would be able to handle all of the little details flawlessly. She put together our beautiful wedding trellis along with all of our tables. She helped manage our vendors and reminded me of many details that a busy bride is sure to forget about within all of the wedding chaos. Sheila will not only beautify your wedding day, she will also ensure that the details are executed just as expected. Thank you Sheila for making our day stress free and gorgeous!

When my wedding venue abruptly closed in May, my fiance and I were devastated. With only 3 months to plan, we decided we would still have a wedding. Nicole from Something Blue found our story on the internet and reached out to help us with calling new venues and figuring out how we can still throw a great party. When I finally figured out what to do, I realized I could not coordinate a ceremony by myself, so I called up Nicole and John and they came to the rescue! They are on point, always one step ahead of me, and there to answer any question I have, any thing I'm concerned about. They really stepped up to help when they did not have to at all. Genuinely great people. I cannot thank them enough for what they are doing for me. They have really helped me relax during this crazy time, taking over all the little details I would've drove myself crazy trying to perfect. These two are top notch and I recommend them to everyone!

We will definitely work with Nicole and Something Blue Events again for our next event!

Joyce was wonderful! When I graduated from my graduate program, I was so stressed with writing a thesis and preparing for finals that I couldn't bother with planning a party too; not to mention, I was moving out of state shortly after. Joyce was so professional and handled everything!! I wanted something small in my backyard and Joyce had great ideas - a tent, music, food, the works - the party felt like it was actually in a hall! Me and my family went to the graduation ceremony, and by the time we returned, everything was set up and ready to go! Her communication throughout the planning process was great and the end result was perfect! I could not have asked for a better way to share my accomplishments with my family and friends. Thanks Joyce for making that day special and, most of all, easy for me!

Roger and his team designed and planned my Christmas Season Wedding and it occurred on a stormy, snowy night. The setting and decor was gorgeous with all our ideas incorporated. The winter wonderland incorporated 45 lit trees, gorgeous centerpieces, cupcake tiered cake, many decorated areas, memorial tree, with hundreds of flickering candles, music, entertainment and just the best ambiance and we felt like everything was planned and handled perfectly. We had 110 guests and even the photographer was fantastic. All put together by Roger and his team. Marvelous, memorable event, as it should be.

Roger was excellent. Our reception looked phenomenal. Roger was easy to work with, always honoring our wishes and making great suggestions. He also made a point of asking about how we were doing and how the rest of the planning was going and he shared his wealth of experience with us in areas outside of decorating. Without him, our wedding wouldn't have been half as good as it was.
