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! ❤

We have used Pop! Events by Design for several family gatherings. Jessica and her team are some of the nicest people you will meet. No matter how crazy one of our ideas are, they somehow make it happen. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

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.

We had a client open house at our office for roughly 30 clients and consultants. Being a busy and growing company, we did not have the time to properly prepare for the event, nor did we want to screw it up and embarrass ourselves. SAVING Grace came highly recommended, so we gave her a call, gave her the parameters, which we had lots of, and let her run with it. The party went down without any issues, the staff she secured was amazing, the food was delicious and plentiful and the entire event was a huge success. It is always best to leave things to the professionals, and Grace is certainly that. I would recommend SAVING Grace anytime.

Kathy was absolutely amazing! I had hired her for serving and helping out for a pre wedding event for my brother. Every single person was praising at how nice she was and on top of her stuff. She didn’t waste a single minute since the time of arrival. She literally took care of everything so I was able to tend to my guests and take care of other things and moreover enjoy the event! Thank you so much Kathy

Des does absolutely amazing work. She is very responsive to what you actually want your makeup to look like and specializes her palettes for the exact look you are going for. Des will tell you step by step what she’s using and show you throughout the process to ensure you get the desired look. Not only will your makeup look stunning, you will look and feel like a million bucks. I received so many compliments on my makeup and it stayed put until the following morning! I would highly recommend Des and will be going back to her for my future events.

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!

Vanessa was great at managing our event. We had 100 attendees. She handled everything from the hotel room block, to prepping speakers, to handling all the food, beverage, flowers, and decorations. It was great to rely on her keen eye to attention. The event was in excellent hands and I didn't have to stress with any of the details! Thank you!
