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!

Everyone was absolutely a delight to work with. Holly was our day of coordinator and was so helpful and hands on in making our special day the best day ever. I never had to worry about my vision coming to life, there were a few changes she made and I'm so grateful she did because they turned out so much better than they werebefore. Our event staff Julio and Brenda were just as professional and hands on and we cannot express enough about how great our event went with the help of them and Holly. They were so warm and great with all of our guests. I definitely recommend Holly Hu's assisting to anyone looking for any event services. Thank you for all that you did! Our day was everything I pictured and more! ❤

Wow what a relief it was to find Amber at ASK Ware. She is A.MA.Zing!!! She planned my event from start to finish and I couldn't be happier. She took my ideas and manifested them into a reality I couldn't even imagine. No doubt I have found an event planner for life. No need to ever look any further.

We had a client open house at our office for roughly 30 clients and consultants. Being a busy and growing company, we did not have the time to properly prepare for the event, nor did we want to screw it up and embarrass ourselves. SAVING Grace came highly recommended, so we gave her a call, gave her the parameters, which we had lots of, and let her run with it. The party went down without any issues, the staff she secured was amazing, the food was delicious and plentiful and the entire event was a huge success. It is always best to leave things to the professionals, and Grace is certainly that. I would recommend SAVING Grace anytime.

She exceeded my expectations, the food was soo good my buffet stayed filled with food for our guests, and her waitstaff are on point and attentive. Most definitely my event coordinator for my future events.

Kathy was absolutely amazing! I had hired her for serving and helping out for a pre wedding event for my brother. Every single person was praising at how nice she was and on top of her stuff. She didn’t waste a single minute since the time of arrival. She literally took care of everything so I was able to tend to my guests and take care of other things and moreover enjoy the event! Thank you so much Kathy

Des does absolutely amazing work. She is very responsive to what you actually want your makeup to look like and specializes her palettes for the exact look you are going for. Des will tell you step by step what she’s using and show you throughout the process to ensure you get the desired look. Not only will your makeup look stunning, you will look and feel like a million bucks. I received so many compliments on my makeup and it stayed put until the following morning! I would highly recommend Des and will be going back to her for my future events.

I knew right away when I stood up in my sisters wedding that I had to have Cathie as my florist for my wedding. I knew it would be hard to top the beautiful bouquet on my sisters day but Cathie did! Cathie is always so easy to work with and knew my vision right away. I even remember there being a hiccup Bc the greenly I wanted was coming from Houston and that was the same time at the Hurricane. Cathie replaced it and I couldn’t even tell the difference. Also I told Cathie we were on a limited budget and didn’t want to spend a ton on flowers. Some florist would just skimp on the details but not Cathie, she did an amazing job! Everyone in my bridal party and wedding loved the flowers and thought our bouquets were stunning!!! I would recommend Cathie to anyone who is looking for wedding, proms, and any special occasions. Thank you for helping make our big day so special!
