As we began to plan our do-it-yourself event the day off details became a bit of a concern. We wanted to be able to relax and enjoy our guests. Keeping track or the vendors and when they were to arrive, meal service, bar service, etc. sounded more like work than fun. We reached out to Diane at Majestic Wedding Planners. Talk about someone that hits the ground running! She spoke with me for nearly a half an hour listening to the plans we had made to that point. By that evening she called me back with caterer and photo booth contacts that paid her fee TWICE OVER. The only hitch in the plan. A slip of the tongue. When I initially contacted Diane I said our event was to be on July 13 when it was actually on JUNE 13. Majestic Event Planners had already booked two events on our date. Of course we understood, but were also disappointed. We really felt that Diane was the go to - take charge person we wanted to make our event run smoothly. Diane felt bad as well and continued to work on our behalf. She fine tuned our caterer contract and made calls to find a trusted planner to handle our event. She even allowed us the use of their client section of Majestic's web page as a point of contact for family and guests. In this day and age it is rare to find someone that takes their business as seriously as they ought to. True professionals with follow through are diamonds in the rough. That Diane of Majestic Event Planners would dig in and help us with our planning without a contract speaks volumes! My assessment of Diane and her partner Michelle is simply this they do what they do because they love to help people far more than they love a pay day. When someone is passionate about their career it shows and these ladies are just that! If you are looking for worry free planning I highly recommend Majestic Event Planners.

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!

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.

Janice & Jennifer were perfect. These ladies are a must book! They went above and beyond to make my wedding dreams come true! Their props were great with a lot of variety and they made all of my guests feel welcomed. The bubble booth looked so cool inside the venue! The dance on a cloud effect made our entrance perfectly dramatic. Thank you both so much!

When my husband and I were beginning the process of planning our wedding, we found ourselves overwhelmed. Originally I didn't think I needed a wedding planner, especially since we were trying to keep our budget as low as possible. GOOD GRAVY was I totally wrong. Laura from Fierce Productions worked with us over the course of nearly a year and made literally EVERY aspect of planning a wedding easier. She helped us find a venue, led fun productive meetings to brainstorm creative ideas, and helped us wade through endless options of caterers, decor, flowers, etc. Closer to the wedding she took care of so much of the nitty gritty logistics I didn't have time for (and honestly didn't even know I really needed to have done). I felt like she really made a successful effort to "get" us and our style and what we were going for, instead of suggesting boring generic stuff. And she was consistently full of awesomely creative ideas (my husband is a writer and she suggested putting borrowed working typewriters on each table for guests to write notes to us. How cool would that be??) She was smart, decisive, and fun to work with. She was so motivated that she was often the one getting things off the ground and lighting a very needed fire under our butts. And I honestly think we spent less money in the long run because of how many great ideas she had to keep costs down. In the end, my husband and I had several people tell us that our wedding was the most fun wedding they'd ever attended. I give so much of that credit to Laura and her fantastic planning. I'm not sure I could've found the kind of crowd planning and sound design that she and her team provided in another company. Planning a wedding was one of the most stressful and complicated things I've ever done, and Laura just made it SO much easier for me and my husband. So if you're on the fence about wedding planners, do yourself a favor and hire Laura at Fierce Productions!!

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!

It was an absolute pleasure working with Chasing Perfection! I was the MC at my friend's wedding, so I had to help make sure everything went smoothly. I couldn't have done that without Jenna and Caleb's attention to detail and organization. So glad Humna hired you to help out! It was your first Pakistani wedding, but you both handled everything so well. Definitely recommending you to future brides!

My daughter got married in 2015 and Annalisa was our go to gal..she helped us out with everything and listened to my daughter's ideas and made them happen. Phantom of the opera was her theme! Bella events helped answer questions and got the wedding venue to do what was expected and her day was special. She made the bride's/bridal party bouquets. Centerpieces and many extras added. Would highly recommend her again.

Natalie was amazing! There were so many moving pieces at my wedding, and Natalie was the glue that held it all together. I was able to tell my family/bridal party if they had questions, or stumbled on an issue at the wedding, to talk to Natalie, and she would address it. The best part was, I didn't have to worry about every little detail the day-of. We met up prior to the wedding and went through the day's itinerary, including set-up, the actual wedding, and teardown. She even went above and beyond, and cleaned up the bridal suite at the end of the night, which looked like a tornado hit it. I could count on her to coordinate with the florist, caterer, venue, etc, and the wedding turned out amazing. Completely worth it, so the bride and groom can enjoy the big day!

Working with Faysha from Simply Lavish Event Planning to plan our wedding reception was an awesome experience. Over our nine months of collaboration she provided superb customer service and I came to know a few of her greatest strengths - her creativity, abundance of good ideas, and resourcefulness. Everything was beautiful on our special day, much attributed to Faysha’s assistance and expertise.

A company that does everything! :) Sometimes it's hard when you are working with multiple vendors and meeting timelines, that's why when I found out that this company offers a lot of services I didn't even think twice and call right away! Izza has been helpful, attention to details, very organize and will make you stick to your timeline. I love her being perfectionist! :) I actually hired them again for my 50th wedding anniversary.

Vibrant Moments is absolutely divine! As I began my quest to find a planner, I wanted to find a person who could execute my vision with ease, passion, and undeniable professionalism. Above all, I wanted chemistry ! My desire was to find a person of robust experience and a distinct ability to be in my head , and my heart, when it came down to decision making .Shay Gordon and her team over delivered! They are nothing short of MAGICAL!!! The women of Vibrant Moments will blow you away, period .My experience turned out to be quite unique.I didn't get married.Weeks before the wedding, my fiancé and I called it off.I bet you were not expecting that? Shay and her team came through like a storm and helped me handle contracts, payments and everything else that comes with a wedding that doesn't happen .She helped me mend unfinished business with vendors and played a critical role in helping me mend a broken heart.Its easy to review a company where everything goes to plan. What happens in moments of controversy ? That's when true professionals show up and make life easy ! Shay, I am forever grateful to you and Bri. .You are the ultimate wedding planner and I look forward to working with again ! Wink !

Wow! There are not enough good things to say about Ashley and her team. Once I spoke with Ashley, I knew she was the right one for the job. She may be "newer" to this industry, but she delivered more than we could have ever asked. Our wedding was about 170 people and she helped organize everything on the day of from A to Z, there every step of the way. Every time I'd try to do something, she'd remind me to enjoy my big day and let her take care of it. If there were "concerns", I didn't know about them because she took care of it all. On the day of, she coordinated with all of the vendors perfectly, and at the end of the day, our wedding was perfect, and she is a big reason for that. If you have any doubts about her and her teams abilities, feel free to have her give you my contact info for a reference. I have nothing but amazing things to say about her work, professionalism, and her drive to make anyone's event the best day of their life. I wish I had photos to share, but we have not received them back yet. In any case, hire T.A.L.M.A! The best money you'll spend for your event.

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!

I am obsessed with planning parties and organizing. Friends started asking me to plan events for them, then weddings, then I planned mine. I loved every second. I then planned my coworkers and sister's. I also do showers and rehearsal dinners. Let me handle the stress and organization needed to plan your big day.
