It was great working with Joe. He was always available by phone and email. He answered all the questions we had before booking him for our wedding. I was a little disappointed in the sound quality during our wedding ceremony. The microphone kept cutting in and out. We weren't video recording our ceremony, but if we were, I would've been very disappointed with the sound afterwards. He tried to fix the microphone during our ceremony, but the quality remained the same. Joe played some songs while our pianist and violinist were setting up inside to play during the cocktail hour. He played great music all night and even accommodated us for our last minute changes for the bridal party introductions for the reception. My fiance sent him the info the night before our wedding and he still made it happen. Overall we had a great experience with Joe and he really helped make our wedding day memorable. We also booked an open air photobooth with Joe and his helper, Alex(sp?) was a great help. He encouraged people to take pictures and went to ask Joe for help when there were any issues with the photo booth camera. Joe had sent examples for the photo booth strip designs and I wasn't a fan of the designs he sent. I looked up other ideas on the internet and sent him designs for what I liked. He was able to create something that looked great for the wedding. I didn't see the design before the wedding, I would've liked to, however my fiance and I waited until the last minute to take care of this because of other things we had deal with. Overall... A+!!! Thanks Joe!

Wedding Planner Full Service I couldn't have better things to say about working with Rick and Special Occasion Events . We booked a full wedding planning package and MC. And Throughout the planning process, Valerie and Rick were attentive, organized and resourceful. Valerie helped to alleviate any additional stress leading up to the wedding by providing helpful tips and resources that kept me and my husband on track for our big day. She made the wedding planning process so much better. She went out of her way to accommodate us in many occasion . She make sure we were happy with every decision we made about our vendors and work professionally with every vendor. And on our rehearsal day and made sure all of our attendants (and little ones!) knew exactly what they were doing, and made it fun and enjoyable throughout. On our wedding day, I knew I had absolutely nothing to stress about because Valeri and Rick were on it. Every little detail, every step of the way. I couldn't have asked for a better planner and MC and am so grateful that we picked Special Occasion Events to help us throughout our wedding planning. I would recommend Special Occasion Events to absolutely anyone!

We worked with Cindy on our wedding invitations and it was a fantastic experience! We gave her our "theme" and colors and she came up with three gorgeous choices. We really had a difficult time choosing which to use! After we hit a bump with the company that was going to do the printing, Cindy stepped up and came up with cost effective solution for us including doing some of the printing and assembly herself. We couldn't have been happier with how the invitations turned out and we received so many compliments. I would not hesitate to use Cindy again for any of my design needs.

Aly was a true godsend. We're very easy going, but even still she helped us keep our sanity through caterer issues and general wedding planning stress. She was so incredibly friendly, accommodating, and truly vested in our success, peace of mind, and happiness. Hiring Aly was, without a doubt, the single best choice we made - well, aside from saying "I do". ;)

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!

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 decorated our reception venue BEAUTIFULLY! They met with us during our final walk-through of our reception venue and executed our vision for the space perfectly, truly breathing life into it. Their clever touches with the decorations and their artistic finesse really made a difference – we got TONS of compliments on the attention to detail in our decorations. Kristen and Jill were the perfect solution for us, as we were getting married and doing photos beginning at 1 PM, but we couldn’t get into our reception venue to begin set-up until 2 PM. We had originally planned a very DIY wedding, but Kristen and Jill saved the day by decorating our reception venue for us while staying respectful of our original vision. Plus, they were affordable. We highly recommend!!!

From the time of our first phone call to discuss my son's party, Grace provided: excellent service, great recommendations and thoughtful attention to my aspirations for the event. Throughout the planning period Grace was quick to respond and handled all of the negotiations with vendors. Grace made it clear when there were action items such as contracts to sign or deposits due, constantly checked with me to see where she could support, and provided budget tracking tools through each phase. On the day of the party she was so supportive and helpful throughout the event - I couldn't have pulled it off without her!

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.

I highly recommend Tilly as a wedding day-of coordinator. I had a 220 person wedding reception in October 2017. I consider myself a fairly organized person, and when we first met she brought up a ton of questions I was surprised that I hadn't even thought about! Tilly continued to keep in regular touch before the wedding to ensure everything was on track. Thanks to Tilly's hard work before and during the reception, my significant other and our families were able to enjoy ourselves to the fullest, worry-free! Friends and family had pleasant things to say about Tilly as well. We had an excellent experience with Tilly and I certainly would recommend her to any of my friends planning to have a wedding.

Excellent agency. Knowledgeable, professional, friendly and so easy to work with. I can say they gave me my fairy tail wedding. I was concerned that working with an remote agency I wouldn't get the results I wanted. I was WRONG! Everything was absolutely wonderful. My wedding day was well organized. Hair, makeup was on schedule and did a wonderful job. The wedding was breathtaking and the reception was great. Our wedding pictures are fabulous. Jamaica was the perfect location. Thanks Ria. We will be calling for our anniversary.

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!
