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!

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.

I cannot say enough good things about Hu's Assisting. We requested servers for our wedding, and they were prompt, thoughtful, engaging with our guests, and utterly thorough in both the service and the support in wrapping up the event. I would not hesitate to engage Hu's Assisting for any future events, large or small.

Creating Memories recently helped plan my baby shower. They were primarily responsible for decoration for my event. They did a phenomenal job working with my family and myself. They had creative and experienced ideas, were concise and detailed with their suggestions and pulled a neat execution in a short time. They took care of things even when we had last min changes at our end and everything came out beautiful

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!

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!

Allana planned our intimate destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas, and it couldn't have been more perfect for me. Allana located and made all arrangements with the vendors to provide the services required: officiant, flowers, food, photographer, hiring a boat. I don't speak Spanish, and she does, so I couldn't have done it without her. She found some really great vendors, whereas I wouldn't have known where to start, even had we been stateside. She managed everything day of, too, and everything went super smoothly, it was perfect! I enjoyed working with Allana, it's clear that she loves event planning!

Not to mention she hand made them AND drove them to Michigan to deliver them!! She had amazing advice from order of events for the day with timing to great songs to use for the wedding! I would highly recommend her services for any event to everyone!!

I enthusiastically support the recommendation of Nicole Auriemma for employment as an entertainer (guitarist and vocalist) in the Chicago area. I have known Nicole Auriemma for the past year and have employed her numerous times to provide musical entertainment during our summer villa events. Nicole always showed up on time and entertained our guests on a very professional level. Nicole is a pleasure to work with and always brings a smile and positive attitude whenever she plays guitar. It is very apparent that she enjoys performing for audiences in any type of environment." Sincere and best regards, Steven T. Samson
