Let me start by saying that as an event planner, I would like to refer Chef Kev as my "caterer of choice" to all of my clients. Chef Kevin's catering company is FABULOUS! He is not only has a wonderful personality - but it is clear that he loves what he does and is passionate about preparing quality and healthy food. His food and customer care are outstanding. He was able to accommodate our law firm open house of 70 with no problem. He planned a creative and exquisite menu, arrived early before the event, came well prepared and set up a beautiful table. The guests were blown away by his food - which was DELICIOUS! Several guests requested his business card, and there were actually no leftovers... (Teriyaki Meatballs and Mesquite Chicken Wings were to die for!).
Xen Live is the only company I'll call anymore for live sound solutions. After a few bad experiences with other companies in the area, I had the pleasure of working with Jay on a wedding event. He arrived early (and very well-dressed), set up quickly and efficiently, and then proceeded to do an incredible job hosting the event and getting people on the dance floor. 10 out of 10, 5 stars, highly recommended, etc. Bottom line, if you want to be certain your event will be a success, CALL XEN LIVE.
After I decided to plan a 70th birthday party for my father, I knew I wanted something different other than just a few guests at home. After speaking with the owner of ALD, April, about what I was looking for and what my budget was, she immediately started helping me brainstorm options for locations and vendors to take care of everything from cupcake orders to banners. She even went to visit the restaurant, see the room, and speak to the restaurant event planner before I could make it over to the location. April is super organized and has timelines and deadlines for each step in planning the event and she always returned my calls and emails in a timely manner. When the day of the event arrived she had all of the materials as discussed and decorated the dining room with a beautiful black and gold theme. She provided everything from chair covers and table linens to balloons. Everything went as planned and she stayed around to make sure everything was on track. I'm so glad that I worked with ALD! They created a memorable and unforgettable event.
My only issue with this company is that they sent an 18 year old attendant out with the booth vs someone who was 21 or older. My party had a lot of alcohol and the event planner was worried about it him being there. Nonetheless, the booth was a hit. It's not your traditional booth, but the new stand alone booths, had I known I would not have used their services. Make sure to ask many questions as they don't offer a lot of information upfront. I can honestly say I wouldn't use them again nor recommend.
I cannot say enough about how wonderful Floyd's DJ services was! They were professional, paid attention to detail, kept the party live and got involved with the crowd. My husband threw me a 40th birthday party and they really added to the specialness of my celebration. Everyone commented on how wonderful the music was and they accommodated guests requests as well as my special requests. To top it all off, I had an all green affair and they had beautiful green up lights for me and the DJs wore green too. I thought that was so nice and thoughtful to dress the part. At the end of the night both DJs engaged in nice conversation with my husband and I as they were breaking down their equipment. I was well pleased with their service and am going to recommend them for another event later in the year. If you need a DJ, go with Floyd's DJ service. I promise you will not be disappointed!
Working with EA was amazing... from start to finish. Their responsiveness, their professionalism and their vision--had me from day one. From the time of first contact, Shavonna calmed me and reassured me that EA could turn my vision into a reality. We hired EA for event design--and they did just that! Every picture I sent and every idea I conveyed was implemented to the fullest extent. EA received kudos from my venue and my wedding planner for their efficient manner for getting the job done, as well as the exquisite design details. When my new hubby and I were introduced, as we walked into the ballroom, I literally cried. As a bride, planning for months, you can never imagine just HOW it will all pull together--your vision, your ideas, your dreams--that makes you so very nervous. As we walked through the crowd to start our first dance, I remember thinking "it is literally dead-on...they nailed my vision dead-on..." I remember telling Shavonna prior that I couldn't imagine how all of my ideas would pull together--couldn't envision it... her response was "leave it to her--that was EA's job, that's why I hired them...so I could remove that concern off my plate" Once again...dead-on.... From the lanterns, to the Eiffel tower feather centerpieces, to the gorgeous linens to the spectacular feather bouquets/boutonnieres/corsages....I am forever grateful.... Many people tell you to prepare for something not to go right, or for something not to be perfect on your wedding day. However, I can honestly say, hiring EA will prove everyone wrong...your day will be amazing--far beyond what you ever dreamt possible--they will meet AND exceed your expectations! Thanks Shavonna and Jamie--you two made my fairytale wedding into a reality! Sincerely and forever grateful, Best Wishes, Andrea and Anwar
I was looking for someone to deliver balloons to a baby shower I am planning later this month. Annia was very responsive with quotes and within a. couple of days all arrangements were made at a very fair price. Will post again after the event but wanted to say that Annia is very professional and organized. Impressive!
Where do I begin?! The food is amazing! The service is very professional. The menu is a wide variety. I had an event, the food was hot and ready to be served. I will definitely be calling Grub Studio again!
Planning for a West Point graduation is like planning a destination wedding for royalty. The weeklong pomp and ceremony of the cadets graduation and commissioning as an army officer on a highly secure and secluded army base requires months of planning. Some plan a year out. Booking hotels, helping guests navigate the campus, getting on and off base and through security check points, transportation to West Point and then around campus and town, planning for meals, seating at events, securing a spot for the commissioning ceremony, is not for the faint at heart or for amateurs. I hired a professional wedding and party planner. She booked lodging and reception hall, secured transportation service to and from post, arranged for breakfast food and snacks during commute to post, meals to be delivered to post for commissioning ceremony and food for our private reception back at the hotel. She had maps and program booklets with details of the events of the day and activities during free time. She thought of it all and executed it without a hitch. Meanwhile, I was able to enjoy the festivities of my son’s graduation and commissioning and enjoy the company of my guests. It was a memorable occasion. Whether it’s the army, navy or air force academy graduation, you want to hire Jacqueline Johnson of Make It A Delightful Day event planning services. The name of her service says it all.
Scott and his team created a unique fun event for my Software Engineering team. We broke up into several groups and made some simple, fun desserts. Everyone had a great time and we even learned a thing or two.
Angie of Honey Do Wedding and Event Planners was one of the best decisions we made throughout our wedding planning process. She was affordable (especially for a student and military wedding) but always made us feel like her number one clients. Not only was she a great value, but she went over and above what we were expecting. We hired her to be our day of coordinator, but we met with her on a regular basis and she always responded to all calls, texts, and emails. Angie is incredibly personable, knowledgeable, and has connections with various other wedding vendors. As a same sex couple, she never treated us any differently than an opposite-sex couple, and she actually was great at recognizing the subtle differences that come with having two brides. At our first meeting at a potential venue, Angie came prepared with examples of her work and binder with all of our info. She even printed out new forms that said bride and bride instead of bride and groom. These small but significant touches are what make Angie stand out among other wedding planners. She helped us negotiate with vendors to get better prices and confirmed all vendors the week of, lifting a lot of the stress off of our shoulders. We can't speak highly enough of Angie and the Honey Do family!
Detailed Diva helped me to plan my wedding this summer and I literally could not have managed without them! I worked with Nesikah as she helped to find my venue, helped with decorating the venue, found me spa services the day of, set up beauty services, and helped to make my rehearsal dinner extra special! Nesikah is very professional,kind and calm, detail oriented, and truly knew how to help a confused and overwhelmed bride (I am very indecisive). I would highly recommend Detailed Diva for any event planning services.
Dee was very responsive before, during and after contracting with DMV Staffing. Then on event day, with 60+ Guests for a post-wedding brunch, Dee and her staff handled everything smoothly, pleasantly and professionally. They needed very little direction after being oriented at the start and just took care of the guests, the buffet and bars, keeping everything replenished and cleaned up. They cleaned up everything and left the house in perfect shape after the event. Many guests commented on how helpful and pleasant the staff was and how smooth and unobtrusive the service was provided. I was delighted with Dee and her crew. I would highly recommend them.
Wow, I can't say enough nice things about Lynn! She is so easy to work with, and so warm, it's like planning your wedding with a friend. I went with day of coordination, which really was more of a month of planning the timeline and getting the details cleared up, plus actually organizing your vendors on the big day. Lynn came to the venue walk-through and asked all the right questions of venue management that I would never have thought of! She made a very detailed timeline and coordinated with all my vendors and my bridal party, she ran the rehearsal, plus she ordered the table linens, and arranged all my decorations. She went above and beyond! They day ran so smoothly because of her. She's always quick to respond to email, and great at offering advice. Her rates are a steal, and she doesn't nickle and dime you for every little thing like some planners. I highly recommend her!
Shawanna planned my baby shower, and my son's 1st and 2nd birthday parties. All 3 events turned out beyond expectations. Each theme was carefully thought out and perfectly executed. Shawanna has a very intricate eye for detail, so you can expect everything to be creatively crafted, from the invitations down to the favors. The favors are definitely always one of a kind. My favorite is the balloon arches. Hard to believe they are handmade; they look like something out of a catalog. I would definitely recommend Exclusive Bashes for anyone who is planning an event. It will surely be one to remember.
I loved working with Keya! I'm very particular about decorations and texted Keya A LOT. She's very patient, detail-oriented, customer-focused and is incredible with communication. I highly recommend Keya and look forward to working with Keya for my next event!
I hosted a function for about 200 people and used ELG Event Productions. Lisa was awesome! She helped me stay in budget, she was organized, and had a great attention to detail. She thought of things and brought them to my attention before they occurred. On the day of the event, she ensured that things went smoothly and we stayed on track with the timing as outlined in my program. Overall, I had a great experience using ELG event planning services and would highly recommend them to everyone!
Top of the City did an excellent job with my wedding. They communicated well throughout the process, which really eased my mind. During the wedding they were on top of everything and I never once I had to ask them to do anything. They were especially attentive to my husband and me, making sure we had enough food and drinks throughout the night, despite us choosing the buffet. I would highly recommend them for any event and would hire them again myself in the future.
Candra is an amazing event planner! Very professional, organized, energetic and best of all passionate. She handles things in a timely fashion and events always go off with out a hitch. From food, decor, activities, and surprises...her events are always fantastic. I have been to several of her events...and each one fantastic! She stands out because she can plan & host a party. Which she does both remarkably well. She can vibe with any crowd from toddlers up to senior citizens. Her passion for the youth makes any child party/event amazing. I've seen her in action and kids just love her!
We hired Itsdjmajestic for a corporate event my company was having. He was wonderful during the exchanges we had leading up to the event, making sure he understood our needs. The day of, he arrived on time and was very friendly. The crowd loved his energy and everyone had a good time. His musical set was perfect. I highly recommend his services.
Michele and Christina were more than we could've asked for. They helped plan, coordinate, and deliver beyond our expectations. My stress levels were very low as they were always responsive before the wedding day and they were on top of every minute the day of. Michele guided our wedding party and vendors with ease and worked hard, yet effortlessly allowing me to feel at ease. Christina was also on top of every moment and went as far as bustling my dress and helping me specifically with things I, myself , wasn't even prepared for. I know they handled much more behind the scenes. I'm thankful for their passion to help and their organized fashion of doing so. Anyone who needs a coordinator in the D.C. Area, I highly recommend Event Planning DC.
