I booked Beyond A Dream Event Rentals this past weekend and the experience was awesome! The attendant came onsite properly uniformed and ready to work. I loved that they had great quality props and the light up LED looked amazing at night. I highly recommend them for any occasion.

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 originally thought I was going to DIY my wedding but when Charlene answered my request I knew that was going to be the best decision I ever made to hire her. IT WAS! I am so glad I did not DIY my wedding. I would give Elegant Wedding Design 100 stars! She made my special wedding day more perfect than I could have ever imagined. People in my family were second guessing the event space I had chosen because it was small and they couldn't see the vision that I had. Charlene truly transformed the space into a beautiful, elegant and luxurious wedding venue. Every single one of my guests were blown away and in awe as soon as they stepped into the ceremony and saw Charlene's magical beauty she created. She was so engaging, kind and truly made sure every detail of my vision was accomplished. She gave great ideas and expertise. I trusted every decision she made. I love that she owned all of her own materials and had the perfect matching color for our wedding scheme. She did a site walk thru and planned everything with a layout. Her text and email correspondence was great! I could write two pages about how amazing she is and how you really need to make sure she is handling your wedding decor and design. As soon as my first phone call with her I could tell in my spirit she would make all of my dreams come true. and she did! I had the complete piece of mind from the moment I hired her. I was even worried because I WASNT worried about anything. She is like the fairy godmother that transformed Cinderella! I give her my highest review possible! Elegant Wedding Design is the best!

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! ❤

Tiffany is very thorough. She pays attention to every detail and that is very important to planning. My birthday celebration was an absolute amazing event. Tiffany only had a short amount of time to pull off this event and she did it masterfully and flawlessly. What I love the most about the Captivating Allure experience is the fact that once you give her your vision, she runs with it all the way. There is no need to worry, question, or stress about anything. All you have to do is show up to your event and you will be well pleased at the Captivating Allure!

Lynette and her team did my wedding yesterday. I could not be more satisfied with their service. They were punctual, professional, efficient, and courteous. Lynette was a a wonderful person to deal with during the planning of the event and also during the event. During planning, she had great communication and follow through. I felt she understood my need to keep costs down and helped me figure out ways to do that. If I had to plan another large party I would definitely go with C & C Party services again.

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.
