Joe Stephen of Dtanding Ovation DJ is outstanding! His communication while planning our event was prompt and professional. We needed to change our event time the day before and Joe was flexible to that too. His song choices were prefect for our audience, he gladly took requests, and kept the dance floor rocking for us! Book Joe for your next event or party. You won't be disappointed on any level!

I was so pleased with Lynette at C & C Party Services. She was very professional from the very first point of contact through the end of the party. She pitched in wherever needed and made sure everything ran smoothly. I would use C & C Party services for any event I have. She exceeded my expectations and was very determined to make sure I had no worries. She succeeded. Her employee did a great job and I received several compliments on the entire party. JOB WELL DONE! I will be seeing you soon.

My husband and I threw a party for a group of about 50 and Donna was AMAZING!!!!!! She took care of EVERYTHING from getting drinks, bringing plates and food out, cleaning up everything and even cutting the cake! She was so friendly and did whatever we asked plus so much more! She was constantly making sure everyone was happy and she worked so hard! Donna had a great personality, such a hard worker and was amazing to work with! I would definitely recommend her to host any get together, big or small! All of our friends and family talked about how wonderful everything was! :) We will definitely use her in the future! Thanks Donna!!!!

Rick and his crew were fantastic. We couldn't have asked for a better group to MC/DJ our wedding. Rick has this infectious enthusiasm that is hard not to love. He knows how to party. Whenever the party felt like it was losing some steam, he would jump on the mic and pump them back up. I can't tell you how many guests came up to me and said they loved Rick. DJ Mambo seemed to always hit the right notes with the music he played. The dance floor was never empty. Valerie did an excellent job coordinating everything. We never felt overwhelmed with her steady hand making sure all was right. I would highly recommend Special Occasion Events for your wedding or party.

We hired Holly the owner of Hu's Assisting to help us plan and coordinate two large parties and she was amazing. My husband and I are both busy professionals, so hiring Holly to help us plan and execute these special events is simply the best decision we made in our party planning process. She was not only professional and polished but also incredibly creative and fun to work with. She communicates well, stays calm under pressure, and is solution oriented. With her guidance, expertise, and suggestions, our parties truly surpassed all of our expectations. In fact, I consider my husband a bit of a tough critic and he could not have been more impressed with Holly and the success of our parties. Perhaps most importantly, Holly took care of every last minute detail, so that we could relax and enjoy the evenings with our guests. She thought of so many little things that made our parties not only well designed and flow smoothly but also lively, festive and memorable. The best part of working with Holly is her bright and friendly personality, and it is truly priceless to have someone by your side, in this context, who will make you smile. We would highly recommend Hu's Assisting without reservation to anyone planning a party or special event.

I hired Lindsey through thumbtack to do face painting at my son's 3rd birthday. After speaking with her, she ended up planning practically the entire party! Lindsey is extremely talented and creative. She went above and beyond to come up with an activity for the party, plan all of the decorations (including elaborate center pieces and sweet table) and put together all of the goodie bags. Lindsey and her sister practically ran the entire party including the craft all while doing the face painting (which was excellent!). I highly recommend Lindsey for both face painting and her party planning services. She did a fantastic job and I couldn't have pulled the day off without her!

I love Angie from Blossom and Branch!! She is absolutely the best value for quality, professional work. The event planners I talked to were pushing me towards much larger and a lot more expensive florists- I am so grateful I did some research and found this great little business! My wedding was definitely not over the top (15 table settings, 8 bouquets and boutonnieres and church arrangements) and I could not believe what these bigger florists wanted. Angie was able to quote me less than half of what these other florists were going to charge me. I was worried (like all brides!) that everything was going to be perfect and all I can say is Angie rocked these flowers! All my bouquets were absolutely beautiful and the creativity she put into my table settings made those arrangements stunning. l am going to miss her upbeat attitude as she and I had a blast together planning the exact flowers and colors I wanted and she made it all happen just like how I pictured it. Anyone planning a wedding - and looking to save a couple of bucks!- would be smart to give Angie and Blossom and Branch a shot. Good Luck! Tina P.

Having The Penny Loafer (TPL) serve at our dinner party was the best decision I have made. When I have dinner parties, I enjoy being with our guest and TPL allowed me to be outside of the kitchen, socializing and having fun. TPL arrived on time, helped with setting up, serving, and tearing down. They are professional and friendly. Several of my guests commented on how pleasant the staff was and how relaxed I was. When I host another dinner party or any gathering, I will hire TPL again. No stress, no mess!! As a special touch, TPL gave us a complimentary loaf of bread. The bread was delicious.

We cannot say enough great things about Heidi and highly recommend her wedding services to any other couples! Heidi served as our wedding coordinator in September 2017 and she was worth her weight in gold so that we could have a relaxing and elegant wedding. Thanks to Heidi we were able to truly enjoy our time with all of our guests many of whom had traveled from Europe and across the US to be with us. On the day of the wedding Heidi did an incredible and efficient job running our early morning rehearsal which immediately put everyone participating in the ceremony at ease. She and her two assistants were then present at our venue throughout the day coordinating the vendors as they arrived, setting up decor, and bringing us our bouquets for photos. She even sent me a few photos of the cake and decor as sneak peeks as we were out and about all day with our wedding party. Once we arrived at the venue everything looked absolutely perfect and she even had water set up for the wedding party as we got ready to walk down the aisle (she also had water, snacks, pain killers and whatever else anyone needed!). During the evening wedding Heidi kept everything to schedule and moved the guests seamlessly throughout the venue from the ceremony to the cocktail hour to dinner to dancing. She worked closely with the photographer, caterer, and musicians to make sure everything went to plan. If anything went wrong during the day or evening we did not know about it! At the end of the wedding she and her two assistants packed up all our boxes of decor/cake/leftover alcohol and took it to our hotel so our family and friends were able to go back to their hotels or to the after party with no worries. In addition to the actual wedding day, Heidi was wonderful from day one. After we decided to work together we met with Heidi early in the summer and showed her around our venue. A couple of weeks before the wedding she also came to our final walkthrough with our caterer. We also had multiple check-in calls the week leading up to the wedding to go through final details. During the week before the wedding she was in touch with all of our vendors to introduce herself and to work out any details which took all vendor management out of our hands. In short, we had a very detailed schedule and notes of how we wanted our wedding to run and look and Heidi executed it with precision and even helped us think of details we might not have thought of ourselves. We had 60 guests and wanted a personal, professional, and elegant Chicago wedding. So many guests commented on how smoothly everything went during the day and how much they enjoyed the pace and look of the evening. We were a very happy bride and groom!

Andrea Yedinak did a good job on the balloon columns for my daughters prom sendoff. We started off with a glitch but Andrea was more than willing to correct the issue to provide great customer service. I will keep her in mind for the next family event!

Chasing Perfection recently coordinated my wedding a few weeks ago. Jenna did my bridal shower in April and after seeing how amazing it turned out, I knew I had to have her do my wedding as well! Jenna was available throughout the entire planning process and never made me feel uneasy about anything that was going on. She was available for me to go to for opinions on something small, like which flowers look better together, to large decisions, like which packages to go with for my vendors. As the big day approached, Jenna sat down with me and made the most detailed wedding day itinerary anyone could ever ask for. Having that made everything, and everyone, go smoothly. She also made a separate one for the bridal party with information specific to them. Chasing Perfection definitely lived up to it's name and made my day absolutely perfect!

I had the pleasure of working with Chef Taryn on two different occasions. The first occasion was for a dinner party and I enjoyed that experience so much I hired her to cater an event for me as well. She is incredibly skillful in culinary arts and it was a delight to work with her throughout each event. Her ability to talk me through each course and deliver a meal that far exceeded all of my expectations was truly incredible. I highly suggestion hiring this talented professional Chef, I will again and again!!

I have had a wonderful time working with Bella Events. The graduation party that this designer put together for me was so beautifully detailed. This designer has a special way of putting everything I say into a perfectly crafted design and truly pays attention to every detail. I believe that is what ultimately makes a beautiful event. Throughout my event I was constantly getting compliments on the decor. This designer was great at communication, she valued my opinion, and she really stayed on top of things. The next event I have will definitely be with Bella Events!!

Working with Faysha from Simply Lavish Event Planning to plan our wedding reception was an awesome experience. Over our nine months of collaboration she provided superb customer service and I came to know a few of her greatest strengths - her creativity, abundance of good ideas, and resourcefulness. Everything was beautiful on our special day, much attributed to Faysha’s assistance and expertise.

Awesomesauce!!!! I just hired Izza for my party planning and I cant wait for the final piece. I can't wait to leave her a review because she is awesome and I want everyone to know how great she is. No joke! She saved us a lot of money. I wouldn't even know that she can do a lot of thing unless you talk to her. You just need to ask and she will deliver. She will do her best to assist you in everything. I originally hired her for the planning and day of coordination but when I told her that I was struggling to look for different vendors, she have a whole pipeline of all the vendors she worked with and she is willing to assist in vendor management. I also hired her for my venue design, decor and goodie bags. She has plenty of samples she can show you and if you don't want any of the package she will go extra mile to design you one. I could be very picky since it's my first child and she is very understanding. Highly recommended.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
