Absolutely amazing DJ and the ultimate professional! We booked DJ Sarg for our wedding reception and he did an incredible job! Nick met with us a couple of times prior to our wedding to help us organize our playlists and set up our schedule, which really helped the night run smoothly. The lighting package was also amazing and Nick handed out sunglasses to our groomsmen and glowsticks during the reception that were a lot of fun! All of our family and friends have told us how much fun they had and we owe that to Nick, who really set the tone for the night and even stayed longer than we booked to keep the party going! Everyone we spoke with since the wedding has said "the DJ was awesome!" We are forever grateful to Nick for making our night so special and would hire him all over again in a heartbeat! We highly recommend him and promise that you will not be disappointed!

Words can not even begin to describe how AWESOME Denean's Party by Design is!!! I originally was one of those brides who thought I could do it all myself until I realized I COULDNT! In my search for a decorator and Day of Coordinator I came across Denean's Party By Design. From that first phone call, that first email I was already sold! The professionalism and courtesy that she showed let me know I was on the right path. After our first meeting I quickly ran home and told my fiancé this is the one! Pam, I could tell you thank you a million times and that still wouldn't be enough! Between the décor, the rehearsal, the actual wedding day and all the calls and emails in between you never skipped a beat and always put my mind at ease! I could not have asked for a better group! I have already sung your praises to several friends and co workers to use your services! Some people are in wedding planning for the money but this group I can truly say does it from the heart! I am forever grateful, my wedding was AMAZING thanks to you!! Its been almost a month and everyone still raves about how beautiful and organized it was. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! With Love, The Wilks

My husband and I hired Floyds DJ Services for our May 13, 2017, ceremony in Woodbridge, Va. Finding a DJ had proven to be my toughest task during the wedding planning phase. . . that is, until Kacey responded to my request for information. She's pleasant, easy to work with and was always responsive. The constant threat of rain for our outdoor ceremony has us wavering on whether we'd be outdoors or move the ceremony inside. Kacey remind flexible as we didn't make the final call until just hours before the ceremony was to start. We were lucky enough to have BOTH Kacey and her husband, DJ Unknown, for our ceremony and reception. He is a GREAT hype man, and together, they read the crowd and played the right mix of old-school jams (as I requested) and current Top 40 Hits (including a ton of songs from my personal playlist suggestion). DJ Kacey even got on the dance floor to lead the crowd into a line dance and help get the party started. Their sound system was super crisp and there wasn't a single glitch! We had selected a final song to be played, and when it came time, DJ Kacey and DJ Unknown surprised us with a PHENOMENAL send off by having our guests line up in a receiving line to end the day. In a word, it was pure magic! Floyds DJ Services is a true example of exceptional quality that doesn't break the bank. I'd recommend them 10 times over! -Kevin G.

Mary is the perfect wedding coordinator. She is very genuine and very in tune to every detail. My wedding day was stress free because she managed 180 guests and my entire bridal party along with other vendors. She was sensitive to the time and she provided agendas at each meeting. She went the distance at my wedding and truely sacrificed to be at meetings including the wedding rehearsal. I couldn't have ask for anyone better. She was humble, engaged actively, and made decisions for the better. She even provided additional details that could make my ceromony more romantic and meaningful. She ensured everything was in its place for ceromony reception, cocktail reception, and wedding reception. She was everything more than a coordinator and fulfilled my hearts desire. I love her and she has the right heart. She gives back in the lives she connected by celebrating others victories. I'm grateful that I found her she was an answer to a prayer.

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.

Rakita was instrumental in helping my husband pull of the best First Mother's Day a girl could ask for. He surprised me by hiring her to come to our home to cook for us, eliminating the stress of going out to eat somewhere nice with a 6-month-old. Rakita's menu choices were varied and suited to different tastes. My husband had a blue cheese crusted steak that he said easily ranks among the best of his life (and this man loves his steak). I had a lobster and shrimp dish over truffled risotto that was equally flavorful and praise-worthy. We shared a better-than-the-Melting-Pot cheese fondue, well-seasoned spring salads, and tasty strawberry shortcake. Wine and a bouquet of fresh tulips were included in the service, as well as the washing of all dishes used in the preparation of our meal. Rakita was friendly, yet very professional. She eliminated the awkwardness that could be associated with hiring a personal chef, and worked quickly in our kitchen while we relaxed. I especially appreciated this, as we had just come off travel and I was recovering from a less-than-pleasant illness. I'd highly recommend Rakita Lillard as a personal chef. She's a fantastic chef, and from what my husband says, comes in at an incredibly fair price point.

My husband and I are SUPER EXCITED with the outcome and very careful planning of our 10 year "Vow Renewal"!! Planned by Shauna Robinson of 'Brides-to- be Wedding's. Mrs. Robinson came to our home and explained 'exactly' what "Brides to-be'- does', she was also concerned with what our expectation's were for our wedding. We were so impressed with her kindness, her elegance, her organization skills and her ability to take the stress of planning off of my plate! She saved me so much stress!!! Our wedding was Simply Amazing thanks to Shauna! She stayed in contact with all of my vendors, the venue coordinator and anyone else involved in my wedding! I couldn't believe just how organized she was...she took my stress away and assured me that she was going to make sure my wedding was everything we thought it would be, and she delivered!!! I would highly recommend Brides- to- be to everyone" that wants a Awesome, patient Wedding Coordinator! I truly appreciate her work! Awesome, just AWESOME!!!!!!! L. Harvey

Angie is an absolute hero. Despite being located in Los Angeles, we were planning a wedding in Bowie, MD...and were totally behind schedule. Luckily, some last-minute searching led me to Angie & Honey Do planners. After our first phone conversation, I felt totally comfortable and even EXCITED about my looming marriage. She helped calm my nerves, direct my energy, and take care of every little task I hadn't thought of. Angie recommended nearly every vendor for our event--photographer, florist, baker--and our guests absolutely raved about each one. She was easy to contact and always helpful, despite being three time zones away. Angie designed our decorations, from centerpieces to guestbook, and was able to intuit my preferences from very little data. I had no vision--just a pinterest page and a rough sense of what I didn't like--and somehow from this she was able to define my style and create absolutely gorgeous decor. I can't express how grateful I am! Angie has a gift. She also served as our day-of-coordinator, making sure everyone in the ceremony was on-time and ready to go. I couldn't get over how much effort she put into our day--the details, the timeline, the decorations--and she helped push everyone involved to make sure they knew what to do and when. Before Angie, I was sincerely dreading my wedding as a social obligation that would be a lot of effort and very little fun. After Angie, I somehow managed to pull off an event that pleased everyone, looked awesome, and felt absolutely joyous from beginning to end. While on the opposite coast. She's a miracle-worker.

I loved everything about working with Dianna of Catering reserved! From start to finish she delivered everything she promised, including delicious food! She was prompt, creative, and thorough in her proposal; she worked with me to refine my needs and I was very comfortable with my final decisions; Her pricing was affordable and fair and most importantly she promised there would really be enough food to feed everyone and there was! She promised it would be delivered on time (it was), that her staff would set it all up nicely without my help (he did!) and that it would be hot and delicious (and it was!). Nothing was forgotten; nothing was omitted. The serving utensils were there, the sterno, and the clear containers were perfect for serving the food in. I didn't need china serving dishes for my event, but Dianna does offer that and if my next event needs Catering Reserved's full service, I won't hesitate to use it. (Food plus waitstaff for setup and clean up.) I've never met Dianna in person, and I never tasted her food prior to hiring her for my very important event, but from our first conversation I just knew I could trust her, and I was right. I highly recommended her! Thanks to Catering Reserved, I got to visit with my guests and totally enjoy my "after-the-wedding" party.

Jacqueline is the best vendor choice we made in the course of planning our wedding. While we hired her primarily for day-of support, she was a dream in the lead up and planning as well: she was always available to meet and talk (phone, in-person, and email), provided insight from her experience to different aspects we were still unsure about, and highlighted things we still needed to address, including important details we otherwise would have forgotten. She is extremely knowledgeable about the wedding industry, coordinates well with the other vendors in preparation and execution, and somehow is always two steps ahead and able to predict and respond to any diversions from the timeline. She also was able to find flowers for my bouquet that the florist couldn't, day-of in the midst of everything else. In addition to her skills and expertise in running her company and your wedding, Jacqueline is lovely to work with. And her services are affordable. With her by our side we didn't worry about a single thing on our wedding day, which was the point. Even the things we learned about later were non-issues since Jacqueline handled them with such decorum and attention. Jacqueline, we love you!

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 had the distinct pleasure of working with the incomparable Michele Palmer (and her dynamic team) for my recent wedding in October 2016. I hired Michele and her team to help with month-of wedding coordination. Initially, I thought I only needed someone to help set up the venue on the day of the wedding and handle week-of phone calls with the other vendors to make sure that everyone was on board and had the correct details. However, as this was my first time planning a wedding, and despite my tendency to be an extremely organized person, there were so many little things that Michele and her team took care of that I hadn’t even expected or anticipated and that helped my wedding go off without a hitch. I would ABSOLUTELY hire Michele and her team again, for any event I host, and merrily pay whatever price to secure her services. In chronological order, and among other kudos for things that I am sure happened behind the scenes and of which I am unaware, I can credit Michele and her team with: -Coordinating the walkthrough at the venue with the caterer, myself, and her team (which happened more than a month prior to the wedding) -Working with the unusually inflexible venue to book a real band, get the band in for training, and arrange for the band to be there with ample time to set up and take down their equipment -Working with the venue to design a floor plan and timeline that the venue was able to understand (despite their perpetually baffled reactions to things from cabaret-style seating to the timing of cocktail hour) -Arranging two rendezvous with myself and my husband (prior to and after the wedding) to meet halfway and transfer LOTS of wedding “stuff” from one vehicle to another. (NEW BRIDES: this is SUPER IMPORTANT because it allowed all of our wedding guests and ourselves to leave the venue at the end of the evening without having to wait around for any handmade decorations, gifts, etc. to be collected and transported into someone’s car. It was the #1 thing that made us feel like we could celebrate on the day rather than be the hosts.) -Chunking last-minute detail information for me, such as deciding on linens, and communicating that information to the caterer (including number of each type of linen for each specific type of table in the venue) -Making useful suggestions that enhanced the wedding experience for the guests (pintuck linens instead of plain, three lanterns on the tables rather than one so they wouldn’t get lost) -Exchanging seemingly hundreds of text messages to answer my last-minute questions and attend to last-minute requests for things such as changing out an escort card when one of the guests broke up with his date two days before the wedding -Arranging for 29 sets of fairy lights for our lanterns, checking the batteries for each one, and stuffing them into the lanterns (saving me from a seriously tedious task) -Being prepared to handle any number of high-maintenance relatives, including knowing their names and where they would be seated -Handling guests that showed up to the venue 75 minutes early (!!!) when the venue was not ready to receive them -Checking in with myself and my husband multiple times throughout the evening to make sure we were OK and had everything we needed (food, drink, a moment to collect ourselves) -Working hand-in-glove with the caterer to accommodate our unusual ceremony (of unknown duration) -Helping me to bustle my dress quickly and efficiently with little direction (CRUCIAL when you don’t have someone at your final fitting and simply need someone to bustle the dress who has bustling experience) -Tearing it up on the drums as a guest drummer for the live band for a song or two -Checking in after the wedding to arrange any and all wrapping-up details PS: Michele can totally hook you up with lanterns and make your tables look SUPER romantic!

Initially Lynn was supposed to be my event decorator, in charge of the flowers and décor for my wedding. However, after only a few meetings, my husband and I were so impressed with how she went above and beyond her role, that we immediately asked if she could be our wedding coordinator…and we’re so glad she said yes! Throughout the planning process Lynn was organized, detail-oriented, and always present. Since my husband and I work in NYC, it was difficult for us to find time to come down to DC to meet with wedding vendors. Lynn was always so gracious and would offer to meet with them on our behalf. Prior to our rehearsal dinner, Lynn met with the wedding party and went through individual timelines for everyone. During our wedding at the Dumbarton House, she was phenomenal in making sure everything flowed smoothly. She was very professional and charming, and our guests still comment on how great she was! Our wedding day was PERFECT, and I was a stress-free bride because of her (which is a huge accomplishment by the way :) We enthusiastically recommend Lynn to anyone who is planning a wedding or event!! -Nancy

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.

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.

Don't let the negative review make you hesitate to consider this company. I hired Bridgette and her staff for my daughter's wedding and I couldn't have been more pleased! The planning and execution of a wedding can be hectic so it was nice to know that Bridgette and her staff were getting things done behind the scenes. It made everyone's day smooth and enjoyable. I cannot recommend A Special Day Plans enough! They are simply awesome! Thank you so much once again!

I don't think I can truly and fully express how blessed Ryan and I were to have had Eleven Courses as our caterer for our wedding day. From the moment we had our tasting, to the finalizing of details, to the actual wedding day, Ryan and I were in great hands. There was NEVER a doubt in our minds that Eleven Courses would let us down. I feel like I could write an entire essay on how amazing Melissa Benson and the rest of the Eleven Courses crew carried themselves throughout this wedding planning process, without mentioning how amazing the food was...because I could totally write an entire essay on that too. To keep things short though, Melissa was just great with following up and answering all of our questions. Catering to our vegetarian guests was a breeze, and making changes to the contract was effortless. Melissa, I am so sad Ryan and I never got the honor of meeting you in person, but if I could, I would give you a HUGE hug right now for everything you did for us. Chrissy was our day of coordinator, which i was personally ecstatic about because she hosted our food tasting, and I absolutely loved working with her. Chrissy, if you are reading this, I am so sad that i did NOT get a chance to hug you that day, because you were just awesome about listening to our needs, and really making sure that Ryan and I got a chance to eat. Not only that, but Ryan and I came back to the venue and found that the room was absolutely spotless. Thank you SO much for taking care of the cleanup. Now on to the food: I can only say one word: incredible. EVERYONE in the wedding commented on how crazy amazing the food was. We barely had any leftovers!! [Which, I was very sad about haha]. Chef Jim, it was such an honor to have met you....your dishes were excellent. And my goodness, can I just also add how incredibly humble Chef Jim is? This is actually turning into an essay, so to sum it all up, Eleven Courses, I am thoroughly impressed with how great you guys were on our special day. If I ever need catering services, I will call you up in a heartbeat. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Lena

I can not say enough about Arielle and the impact she made as my wedding coordinator! I thought I could handle everything on my own, but figured a wedding coordinator would just help the day of. Well, turns out I was very wrong. If it wasn't for Arielle I would have ended up canceling the whole thing and running to the court house. Arielle's organization and attention to detail was impeccable. She helped me plan everything down to the most minute details and it made the day so much less stressful on me as the bride and gave reassurance to all other members of the wedding. She handled all my vendors the day of the wedding. Apparently, there were some major issues that came up that I didn't even find out about until weeks after the wedding because she handled everything before it even got to me. Weddings can be so much more stressful and frustrating than you can even imagine. Having someone there to handle the crazy with your happiness as their main focus can make the most stressful busiest day of your life the fairy tail you have always dreamed of. Arielle has my highest recommendation and was worth every penny, plus her well earned tip ;) Thank you!!!!
