About

Joe was great! He DJ'd our company party and ran a great karaoke program. He was easy & fun to deal with, was ready on time (actually early), stayed late, was flexible with the party goers requests and simply did a great job. Will definitely use him again!

About

C&C Party Services provided us with a wonderful experience! I was hosting a 30th birthday party with a martini theme, this is what inspired the bartender search, Lynette pleasantly(not pushy) informed me that they also provided set up, service, and clean up help as well. Though I had not originally intended on these services, it was one of the most valuable decisions of the night. Even for a smaller party of about 20 people the luxury of a bartender kept everyone happy and excited, and free to mingle! Not to mention the relief of not running in and out of the kitchen to keep food stocked. I highly recommend these services for any sized party, and C & C provides them in a reliable, professional, and friendly manner. I will be using their services again in the future.

About

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!

Where do I even begin! I was on the fence about hiring a wedding day coordinator because I figured having a 2 year engagement gave me more than enough time to finalize every little wedding detail myself- boy was I wrong! When my now husband and I first met with Sarah we clicked immediately. Within just a one hour meeting she captured exactly the style we were going for and had so many great ideas for decor for the venue. Our venue was basically a big empty building with rooms and we were able to arrange all the decor and tables however we wanted. I'm a very visual person, so her 3D diagrams were unbelievably helpful not only to see what colors worked best together,how the centerpieces would look, but also when coming up with a floor plan for the seating! Sarah is not only incredibly responsive (and trust me we emailed,called, and texted her a lot especially the weeks leading up to the wedding) but she actually cares! We ran into some issues a couple months before the big day with our bartending company (who we paid in full) having issues with our venue then not returning calls or emails. Sarah was a HUGE help with working through this bar issue and keeping me calm. On the big day Sarah was on her A game! With 10 bridesmaids, 9 groomsmen, and 200 guests I thought organizing the day was going to be a circus! But Sarah and her team were FANTASTIC! Everything was beautiful! Everything went smoothly (even if there were issues I would have never known)! Not to mention our officiant and photograpber raved about how great Sarah was to work with. One vendor even said she is the best day of coordinator they had ever worked with! We seriously have Sarah Kathleen Events to thank for our beautiful wedding. The day was perfect and it was all thanks to Sarah and her stellar team. I am recommending Sarah Kathleen Events to everyone of my friends and family members who will be getting married in the future! Thank you SKE for making our day one we will never ever forget!

EBJ always puts the client first, and ensures all involved have what they need and are having a good time. Very few planners and coordinators are able to combine humor and focus so effortlessly - this is just one of the many star-quality attributes making EBJ a far more outstanding event specialist! Highly recommended, and cannot wait to work with again!

I don't usually write reviews but in this case I just had to. We LOVE this company! VIP Chicago Parties planned the perfect day and night events for our weekend. I've planned nights out before on my own, but from now on I'm using them EVERY time. They took all of the hard work out of it for us and the prices can't be beat anywhere that we've found. The person that wrote the negative comments probably ruined their own night out and I'm glad I didn't read into that! We had ABSOLUTELY NO BAD EXPERIENCES USING THIS SERVICE. Our party planner and host were top nouch professionals and continuously went out of their way to make our night a memorable one. Our whole party had a GREAT time! Christine and Erika (the spa technicians) were extremely polite and efficient. Erika knows what she is doing with make up and took her time with each of us. She really made us feel and look beautiful! The Burlesque Lessons were a lot of fun and Trixie was funny and so sweet. We also used them for the night out on the town. We got a selection of clubs with no cover and express entry and we even got a few drinks at each place. When we arrived and notified the door people that we were with "VIP", they made sure that we were taken care of, even with the night being extremely busy with many other people and parties. The bus was clean, on-time and we had plenty of room for all of our drinks. Overall we had a great experience and will recommend this company to all our friends & family! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK VIP!

My wedding was April 14 of this year and i meet Linda literally 2 months before my special day. I had been looking all over for a photographer and couldn't find a good one anywhere. Needless to say Linda came to my rescue and did an amazing job with our photos. Not only did she do our wedding but we had an engagement session as well. My entire wedding party and guest really enjoyed Linda and on top of that her prices were very reasonable compared to a lot of others out there and she did a better job anyway! It was an awesome experience, if you don't book her you'll regret it!!!
