Michele and Laura are absolutely amazing and I highly suggestion them for any type of event! They were such a delight I now consider them friends. I hired them as day of planner for my wedding about 30 days before the wedding date and they jumped right in and help me with all details and logistics for the day so I didn't have to think about anything. They worked with all of the vendors I hired to coordinate and schedule out the day of the wedding as well as the details needed before the day. They also came to every meeting with me that I had at the hotel(reception site) from the day I hired them to the day before the wedding. They were there to protect me and my ideas and vision for my wedding day. Every email I sent with questions was answered within hours if not sooner. And trust me, I sent a lot of emails :-) My wedding was amazing and I owe it to them for it being possible. They were able to source signs and décor I wanted last min,the day before the wedding!!There were some hiccups that happened the "Day of" but I didn't even know about them because Michele and Laura from hotel to the church helped smooth it all out and knew what I wanted and were able to make decisions for me. They really do it all, the hotel coordinator left before my desserts were plated, so Michele and Laura were in the kitchen plating desserts for the buffet. And the last song of the night Michele, the multi-talented lady that she is, played the drums with our band!! Honestly, their professionalism, coordinating skills and genuine care and passion for their events make these two the BEST!
I hired Chef Kev through Thumbtack because he replied promptly to my request and already had a suggested menu based off of my needs. The event was my 1 year wedding anniversary and I requested drop-off catering for a buffet style dinner. The only change that I'd make is the time. Chef Kev was delayed due to traffic but looking back, if he was able to arrive just 15-20 minutes sooner I may have been less distracted and frantic! LOL! Everything else was absolutely awesome. The price was great, the flavor and creativity were amazing... all of my guests enjoyed the food! If I ever decide to hold another large event, Chef Kev will be the first caterer I call!
Leslie was incredible to work with. She helped make our wedding day such an amazing experience!! From the very beginning, Leslie was very professional, organized and responsive. Not only did she answer questions I had about planning the wedding, she also was helped to reassure me when I was feeling the stressed and overwhelmed. She visited and met with the coordinator at the venue prior to the wedding date and made sure that everything was ready for the big day. During the wedding, she kept everyone on track and made sure the event ran smoothly. She was worth every penny. She helped my husband and I have an incredible day that we will always cherish.
Top of the City blew us out of the water with their phenominal service. From the beginning of the wedding planning they were easy to work with and eager to accomodate. The price was very, very reasonable for such a classy affair!
Such a great couple to work with! I love how this husband and wife team work together to make sure your event runs smoothly! I hired them for my wedding and they were amazing! They made sure to play songs for my family to dance to, songs my husband and I requested and a song I requested for my nieces. I enjoyed them and know whoever hires in the future will too!
April Daniels, the owner of ALD Event Solutions is simply amazing! She has such passion, talent and an eye for beauty. April donated her talents, skills and time to help plan our 6th Annual Fundraiser and Volunteer Recognition Gala (http://www. gala.havserve.org) as a pro bono consultant and was simply amazing as a team member. She is extremely easy to work with and professional. I highly recommend April Daniels for any events planning. More photos of the event will be shared through our Facebook page soon: https://www.facebook.com/HavServe/ Carline Brice-Mesilus, HavServe Founder.
Hiring Mary to coordinate my daughters wedding was one of the best decisions I made. Everything went so smooth and I could not have been happier with my decision.
I had the privilege of participating in my best friend's wedding, organized by Ms. Johnson. It was very well organized, elegant, and overall very enjoyable. I've dealt with wedding planners who make things more stressful and more complicated than needed but Ms. Johnson was very friendly with a simple and direct approach. She made everything as smooth as possible and quite honestly made it all look effortless, even though it was abundantly clear that she put in a monumental effort for this event. Some people are just naturally talented at organizing and remaining poised in the process and I would say that Ms. Johnson is one of those people. Participating in my best friend's wedding was one of the most memorable moments in my life thus far and thanks to Ms. Johnson, the memories I have from this event are the best they could've been. Thank you Ms. Johnson for doing such a great job and I hope that anyone reading this who is looking to plan a wedding will hire Ms. Johnson without hesitation.
We had such a fabulous experience with Kimberly and her staff! Coming from an event-planning background myself, I was more of a type-A bride than I would like to admit. Two weeks before the wedding, I handed Kimberly a 40-pg field manual (unsolicited) with detailed instructions on how to set up the venue and a timeline detailing the day's events down to the minute. I'll be the first person to admit that it was not an easy road map to follow, and Kimberly and her staff executed it perfectly. The decorations looked better than I had ever imagined and the whole event ran incredibly smoothly, despite my husband and I making several changes to the plan on the day of the wedding. She and her staff were in excellent communication with our DJ, MC, and live musician, and virtually unseen by the rest of the guests. Moreover, she maintained an incredible attitude throughout and was a joy to work with. I couldn't be more pleased with the experience and I know our guests would agree!
Everything about our experience with Catering Reserved was incredible. Dianna Gilbert showed immense professionalism, and was the perfect caterer for our wedding reception. We are so grateful for everything she did and would not hesitate to recommend her, and the company.
I just recently for married June 24th, 2017 and from the beginning DMV event staffing we're on top of everything. Dee stayed in contact with me the whole time & she responded to any questions I had during this process. The best part was the bartender she sent sent me for my wedding. JAHRED was AMAZING!!! I could not have asked for such a wonderful bartender. He reached out to me ,introduced himself, answered any questions I had. He had such a warm soul. My family & friends loved him! He knew his Jon very well, was on point with everything, & with the bride being busy, he made sure not to forget about me. Will definitely be using DMV services again. Very satisfied customer. Thank u Dee!!!
Mary and her crew did a fantastic job catering our wedding luncheon in northern Virginia. The food and service were terrific.
DIY handled my Wedding! From the beginning they came with unique ideas matching my color scheme, my style ideas and my budget. They were patient in allowing me the time to review their suggestions that fit with my needs. Oh, and their the small details... Everything was fabulous!!!
Stacia's professionalism was outstanding. The event was handled with poise, business savvy, and she went far and above showcasing her craft. Ms Johnson will be a great asset to her customers and to the business of Wedding Planning.
We hired Lisa to be our on-site wedding coordinator a month before the big day, and she jumped right in and helped everything run smoothly and efficiently. She worked with the on-site staff to decorate and prepare the venue and she did a great job. Would recommend Lisa to others.
I have worked with Candra multiple times for birthday parties, weddings, and other events. She is very creative, knowledgeable, driven, reasonable, and enthusiastic. With whatever event she has, she thoroughly plans it out, not missing any detail requested by her customer. She always does her best to satisfy customers. She has great work ethic, very personable; goes above and beyond the customer's request. She strives for excellence in whatever she does and is always willing to make involvements. She has great multi-tasking skills and management her time wisely. I can only see her improve in the future. I appreciate her services. I look forward to working with her again.
Simply chic was simply AMAZING. Tisha was very professional and very punctual. But her greatest quality was that she was very personable and understanding. We had no idea of how we wanted our wedding and she helped us put everything together and I couldn't have asked for more. A definite hire. Thank you so much Tisha . We look forward to working with you in the future with other events and we wish you well in your future with your business.
When my now wife and I set out to plan our wedding, we were one of those couples who thought hiring a planner was unnecessary. We had roughly 6 months to pull it off. We fancy ourselves as reasonably intelligent and financially responsible people and we thought that was plenty of time. Fast forward 4 months. The stress began to mount and panic had set in. Our budget is dwindling. We broke down and decided to hire a day-of coordinator. Better late than never, but who do we call? Every one we spoke to was either way too expensive or not the right fit personality wise. Thanks to Thumbtack, we found Vanessa. We are incredibly happy we did and we couldn't have pulled off our awesome wedding without her. Here's just a few of the reasons why: 1) Attitude - She has the PERFECT demeanor for event planning. She kept us on track, but was never pushy. Very personable and easy to talk to. Every time we spoke to her we felt both at ease and motivated to check more off of our list. 2) Creativity - Simply put she has great ideas. Whether it was decor, logistics, floor planning, etc., she listened to our inputs (which weren't always in lockstep - welcome to married life) but put here own spin on things. Our wedding was weeks ago and we still are getting comments on how beautiful everything was. 3) Contacts - Vanessa made great recommendations for vendors, and didn't do so based on any kickbacks or financial gain to herself. In fact, we had one vendor who was somewhat flaky that we had already booked. She was able to line up a "just in case" vendor for us. 4) Organization - Nothing fell through the cracks and she thought of small details we didn't have the capacity to (because we were too busy being crazy pants). 5) Value - She is worth every penny and I would argue she is a bargain for the service she provides. This is especially in comparison to other planners out there. If you need help planning an event, not just a wedding, we highly suggest you reach out to Vanessa @ Little Black Book. You absolutely will not regret it.
We had a lot of moving parts with our wedding, and we couldn't have done it without Edelina! As soon as we hired her she was working with us, not just the day of. She always got back to us very quickly and her expertise and experience was so helpful. Our wedding went so smoothly and we're so thankful for her coordination. We definitely recommend hiring Edelina for your wedding or event!
Working with The Willow/Seye was an amazing experience. She was patient and brought my vision to life more so than I could ever have imagined. She had less than six months to plan 3 days of Wedding ceremonies for 400 guests...not many could do that and pull it off as well as she did! I'm so grateful for Seye coming into our lives when she did and wholeheartedly do not believe anyone else would have been able to deliver like The Willow was able. I recommend EVERY bride contact her - she is that good!
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!
