We found Joe Stephen with Standing Ovation DJ's through Thumbtack and found an absolute gem! Working with Joe was a dream from the beginning of our planning. He was wonderful and easy to work with, provided ideas and suggestions and was ready to help us put on an amazing wedding celebration. Joe provides online opportunity to select songs to play, and do not play songs and works with you to narrow down to your likes and dislikes which turned out perfect. Joe provided three separate systems for each portion of of the wedding festivities. He set up a system in the Hyatt Regency Pavillion for the ceremony for music and microphones. Then he set up music in the Cyan Room for cocktail hour, and finally he had an amazing setup in the Ballroom for the reception. His equipment was state-of-the-art and appropriately "blacked-out" not to draw attention to himself. Joe set-up ballroom up-lights that turned out beautiful and an awesome GOBO exactly as the bride and groom had designed to shine on the wall. When we walked into the room we were in awe with what he had done. It complemented the Hyatt's design and set-up for the reception. Joe has a voice that is perfect for the job. He takes charge of the night but doesn't take over, which was what we wanted. He provided a course of direction for everyone, following our planned order of events for the evening. I had put together a memory-lane video montage about the bride and groom and Joe provided an 8' screen with projector so all 180 people could view it, which also turned out great! We would recommend Joe for any event. He was a true professional and did an amazing job!

I hired Donna and her son for a wedding of 115 people. Absolutely fantastic!! Set up very quickly and helped break down at the end of the night. Most importantly, especially at a wedding, there were no problems with people getting over served. Great job, would definatley hire again.

I just finished celebrating my daughters wedding. We had interviewed 11 Mc/Dj before deciding on Rick Mangram, Special Occasion Events. If you are considering someone to MC a wedding or event, look no further. I have been involved with large city events and personal corporate events, and I have never experienced anyone of the caliber of Rick. His personality, energy, professionalism and attention to detail is exceptional. I had numerous guests come to me and tell me that Rick was awesome. Even my wife, who is very demanding thought Rick did and outstanding job! Believe me, if you want someone to MC a special occasion , look no further, Rick and his staff are the ones you want to hire!!! Best wishes with your event, Dr. Don Newberg

ASK Ware productions is more than a 5 star rate kind of company. It's where Dreams and Professionalism meet Bliss! Working with Amber whom is the CEO brought me so much hope for my event. At the time, I was an expecting mom and party planning/organization was never my strong point. Although I consider myself a creative person, I kind of needed someone else to make my vision come true. So, word of mouth lead me to ASK Ware and I've never planned a party without them since. My baby shower was phenomenal and everyone walked out telling me how much they enjoyed my event! When I went back to work, my boss even asked for her information so we can start planning corporate events. I say all this to say, ASK Ware is more than wedding planning, more than Party planning...it's a event planning HEAVEN! Many thanks to Amber and her entire staff for always bringing life to what started out as a simple dream.

Jessica did a great job with our day of wedding preparation. She was able to take what we envisioned for our center pieces, sweet table and guest book table; and bring them to life. She was a huge help because it took a lot of stress off our families since we didn't have to worry about getting our hall set up the day of the wedding.

Kristen and Jill were a pleasure to work with. My fiance and I decided it would be a good idea to hire someone to make sure things ran smoothly on our wedding day and these ladies surely delivered! My fiance and I were able to truly be guests at our wedding, which was important to us, and we would definitely hire them in the future.

Allana at City Chic Events was invaluable to us in planning and executing our daughter's wedding. She was professional, flexible, reasonable in price, approachable and available. She communicated with us as much as we needed her to. She was prompt in her responses and offered suggestions when asked. Allana worked quietly behind the scenes the day of the wedding. I found out, after the fact, that she had to repair my daughter's wedding dress after someone stepped on it. I never noticed!! Thank you so much for all you did to make our daughter's wedding a dream come true! And thank you from a grateful MOB for helping me maintain my sanity through this wedding planning journey! You are so appreciated and we highly recommend you! City Chic Events offers various plans for any budget, check them out, seriously! FOB said it was the best money he spent in the budget!

Thankful to Ms Profit, she saved my wedding day as my initial coordinator backed out a week before my wedding, she took over decorating, coordination and handling all my vendors. My day was beautiful no one could tell that she stepped in last minute she ran my day as if it was her own wedding.

Des did my make up (the bride), my bridal party, my mother, and my now wife's make up for our wedding day. She offered to do a trial for all of us the day of my shower as well. We all loved how easy she is to work with, she listens, and is open to feedback. My make up lasted through out the day and night. I even had an outdoor wedding ceremony and reception, and I sweat a lot. I was very pleased at how long it lasted and how beautiful I looked during the ceremony. I would recommend Des to any bride! I also will use Des again for any time I need make up done. She is professional, timely, easy to talk to, quality make up, amazing talent, and great pricing.

I had a great time working with Dana for my July 2017 wedding at Salvage One and would highly recommend her as a day-of coordinator. Since she worked at Salvage One, she knew the venue well and knew what would work and what wouldn't. She helped me fine tune the details for the day-of activities and helped set up all my DIY decor. She made sure everything ran smoothly the day of so that my family or I wouldn't have to worry about a thing. I was able to relax and enjoy my wedding. Thanks, Dana!

I am not even remotely close to being a party planner type. For me, some paper plates, a few balloons and a tablecloth and we're all good! But when I wanted to throw a SUPERB Christmas party for my developmentally disabled brother and his housemates, there was nowhere else to turn! Point of Elegance was right on point, making the party one that continues to be talked about several months later! Their attention to detail and their passion to make each party it's own unique event is unmatched and truly made that special day even more special than I ever would have imagined! I have already decided that POE will forever be my go to to get the party started. Everyone else does events! They do EXCELLENCE!

Hiring Kristin was one of the best decisions I've made when planning our wedding last summer. Kristin made sure the decor looked exactly as I wanted it! Working with her was a pleasure. She pays great attention to detail, and her talent in event planning and styling is obvious. Kristin and her team are a gem!

When both of my daughters got engaged one month apart, and chose wedding dates seven weeks apart, we hired Plan-It Perfect to plan both weddings! Angela and her team did a remarkable job of not only designing, creating and implementing every aspect of both important events, but also managed to create two very distinctive weddings for my two very different daughters. And, when we got to the actual weekend of each wedding, no one in our family had to do anything but enjoy ourselves, spend time with friends and family and celebrate the happy couple. When our youngest gets married, we will not hesitate for a second to bring Angela and Plan-It Perfect on board!

I hired Katisha as my florist a year ago and fell in love with her approach to planning. Katisha and her team are outstanding! She really took time to understand our vision. I had a whole Pinterest board dedicated to bouquets and table centerpieces. She helped me wade through all the different flowers types, styles and colors. We went to two different flower markets and she prepared 3 different proposals for us! I had such a specific vision and a very strict budget. She did a ridiculously amazing job of bringing our vision to life! Two months before the wedding, we had a unfortunate scheduling situation with another wedding planner and we had to let her go. Katisha and Theron stepped in as our wedding day coordinators. They did a phenomenal job helping us plan, handling situations on the day and keeping us on schedule. We were so blessed to have them help us on our wedding day! My husband and I both agree that if we had to do this all over again, we would hire Katisha and Theron from day ONE! They are an amazing team and It honestly felt like a close friend was planning our wedding. The most organized and professional friend ever! Lol 😊

April is great at what she does! My husband and I planned an out of state wedding and were worried about organizing all the small details and being able to just enjoy ourselves on the day of, but April made the process as painless as possible! April really did go above and beyond her duties of Day of Coordinator, we are so grateful we found her!

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!
