We used Cocktails N' Dreams for our son's wedding party in Rochester on July 10. Their bartender Patsey was prompt, efficient and extremely pleasant! Guests kept remarking about how great she was, and how she knew their drink as they walked up to the bar. She stayed on top of everything the entire night, and despite the fact that she worked alone, and there were 100 people there, no back ups or wait for drinks. I would highly recommend this service to anyone any time! The cost was very reasonable and Patsey was worth every penny. Setting up the event was easy and Kelly was also very pleasant and helpful during this process. We will definitely use Cocktails N' Dreams at our next event!! Barb/Ken Smith - Rochester Hills

We used Cocktails & Dreams for an in home 40th birthday party. Patsey was very professional and helped clean up plates, etc from the food table when she wasn’t busy. She made a great drink and everyone at the party was impressed. She remembered what people were drinking and refilled drinks accordingly. I would definitely recommend.

There isn't enough time/space to express how wonderful an experience I had with Darlene & Aja @ Oceanique Catering. My original caterer cancelled on me 2 days prior to my annual Christmas Party & even though Darlene wasn't planning on catering Christmas Day, she did it for me! I ordered a traditional Polish menu for 40 guests & wanted extra for everyone to take plates home & Darlene made a feast! Absolutely EVERYONE loved her cooking...her set-up was breathtaking (she even brought decorations) & she cleared/cleaned everything up as promised. Oceanique will truly be the ONLY caterer I use & not just because the food was loved by all but because Darlene is a beautiful person with a heart of gold. She could've charged me extra for only having 2 days notice (like other caterers have) but she didn't...in fact, her prices were very reasonable. Her & Aja were down-to-earth & easy to deal with. They made me extremely comfortable & wouldn't let me lift a finger. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to impress their guests. Doreen N. Farmington Hills

We hired Oceanique Catering for my daughter's high school graduation party. From the start, Darlene was very responsive. We wanted a buffet of Mexican dishes, and Darlene was first to respond with a custom menu. The price was reasonable and included full service, which we really needed for the size of this party. Darlene offered to come out in advance for a tasting, which helped us to narrow down the menu a bit. Our graduate is gluten intolerant, and Darlene had a lot of suggestions for gluten free options. All of our guests thought the food was outstanding! We had 2 staff people who stood behind the buffet tables, served the food, and kept the food hot and stocked. It was a nice touch! We also paid extra for the bartender, which was great as we didn't have to worry about underage drinking. Would definitely recommend Oceanique for any event.

Darlene and her team did an excellent job catering my wife's graduation party. There were so many little things that added up that I didn't expect that made my experience with this company so excellent. From table cloths to flowers to cutlery wrapped in my wife's school colors. The most important part which was easily the most impressive was the quality of her food. Everything Darlene and her team makes is home made and she will work with you putting together the perfect menu with you for your event as she did for me. She also uses excellent equipment which kept the food very hot which I was really surprised because I got stuck with an unlucky cold day. Everything was excellent from start to finish and I would highly recommend Oceanique. Count on this customer returning for seconds.

Although we are not getting married until next year, my fiancée and I could not stop raving about Faythe after meeting with her. She is planning on officiating our ceremony next year and made us feel completely comfortable with planning a ceremony that is right for us. She gave us so many great suggestions for not only our ceremony but the wedding planning process altogether and we left our meeting with her very excited for our big day. Can't wait to work with her!!

Working with Faythe has been absolutely wonderful. She's very easy to work with and understanding of our circumstances. Even though she was unable to do our actual wedding, Michele who did our wedding, was so caring and wonderful to work with also. We are so glad we were able to work with Faythe and Michele to make our day extra special.

I attended my granddaughter's birthday party arranged by Divine events by Amy Rose it was the most awesome and amazing birthday party I had ever attended. The decorations were fantastic. We had hours of fun and the food was delicious especially the hors d'oeuvres The birthday party was well planned and organize everything happen right on time. The contortionist was the best. He captured everyone's attention for over an hour The clown had everyone laughing we also had face painting, bounce house everything you could imagine was there. All the children stated that this was the best birthday party ever I also think that birthday party was the best, I wish I could have a birthday party like that and Amy Rose did a wonderful job of party planning

Amy will work with you to customize the decor to the theme you want in the time you want. We had her create a balloon arch with center pieces for my daughter's birthday party with a Peppa Pig theme and the results were fabulous. We and the guests loved the setup.

Meeka is amazing! She helped design and arrange the decor for our son's bar mitzvah at Lucky Strike in Novi. Meeka was extremely pleasant to work with and really listened to and executed our vision for the party. Aside from the decor, which was fabulous, she was there during the party to help us with some smaller details. Meeka is a true gem. We are looking forward to working with her again for our daughter bat mitzvah in a few years. You really can "Leave it to Meeka"!

We had a lovely experience with Golde Standard Catering. Nancy was extremely tentative and made our wedding planning incredibly easy, and relieved a lot of stress and worry. She always responded quickly and we felt like she had a personal investment in our wedding. The food was phenomenal and all of our guests continue to rave about it. If you want quality , go with Golde Standard Catering. We couldn't have had such a wonderful day without them!

"I hired MonumentalHeights.com for support services and the coordination of my wedding and events surrounding the big day (such as bridal shower, engagement party and etc.). My coordinator Trisha was very professional and detailed. In the contract proposal, she provided a list of services that would be included, which assisted me in choosing the appropriate services and vendors. She always went the extra mile, made herself available, made suggestions when asked, and handled every situation with ease, skill and class. There are no words that can express the depth of appreciation for all the Monumental Heights team hard work. I highly recommend this company. Even after the discussion that the wedding was going to be canceled. Trisha took her time and helped me notify all guests and designed beautifully written cards that were mailed to the proposed guest list. I was able to relax and know that she was there making sure everything was going smoothly. My first suggestion to new brides would be to consider a company and coordinator that truly care about your wedding and not your pockets. So with that being said I would NEVER hesitate in hiring the MonumentalHeights.com team for anything."

I greatly appreciate the service you've done for my husband and I. After all the horrible things I went through the and all the money wasted with the out of state planner canceling at the last minute. Then dealing with the terrible heat on the wedding day and the fact your team couldn't set up on time --- YOU ALL still gave a vision I never saw for my wedding. The room was so beautiful better than I could've imagined... I just thank god I found Monumental Heights for my decor, I thank Trisha and the team so much for helping me and my husband just when we thought nothing could go right, the reception hall was the one thing that did - THANK U MONUMENTAL HEIGHTS. We're now expecting and I'm looking to hiring you all for our baby shower probably some time in June. I do have a few ideas in mind for the shower but just as the team surprised us with our head table at the wedding I'm sure they will have great ideas for the shower. Thanks again for our beautiful reception! We look forward to working with you for our baby shower.

Charree was very helpful and even stayed to help set up the tables and decorations even though I only paid for a drop off, because she seen that I was frazzled and starting to have a melt down. She supplied a chocolate fountain and all the trimmings for my daughter's graduation party that was a big hit! One of the side dishes we had were collard greens (my family is Muslim and had never had them before so I wanted to try something different), and since one half of my family are Muslims I thought this would be an issue. However to my surprise Charree does not cook with any pork products. The greens were so flavorful and tasty, the few southern family members that were there just loved them.

I just love Lucy's Sweet Creations! I have used her for several parties including my baby shower and my daughters birthday. It can be pretty hectic trying to plan and execute the perfect party. Lucy makes it easy! From her attention to detail during planning to actually being there in person for the event. I aslo love the convenience of getting one person who can do it all. She can do everything from ballons and decorations to treats and favors. I would highly reccommend Lucy to anyone looking for help with their party or event. She is the best.

Okay so, let's throw this out there, Heather Todero is my sister-in-law. And it is a bit suspicious I gave her all 5/5 stars. Now that we have all the reasons you might disregard this one review, let me tell you all the reasons you should memorize the "Heather Todero Events" name, and tell your friends while she is able to fit you in during the 2013-2014 wedding season. Heather has a driven, professional personality that leads the wedding day activities with guidance and direction, but she connects with her clients in a warm way that allows her to share in their wants and needs. Listening was big for me. She truly wants to see, grasp, and understand your vision, so she can in turn produce a budget-friendly beautiful rendition. She may be able to help design at times, but her specialty lies within her ability to find creative solutions for anything you've dreamed of doing. It's amazing. Heather saved the day by being especially organized as well. She has time tables and agendas, and she gets to know them backwards and forwards. She internalizes your vision so you can go about your day peacefully while she takes care of anything out of order. She gets to know you and your dreams well enough so that she can talk to vendors and coordinate the timing and activities of every party involved in the event, all without you even knowing. She does whatever it takes to make things go smoothly, and not your mother-in-law's version of smooth, or your crazy aunt's version of smooth, but your version. (Yeah, take a sigh of relief). After my wedding I found out my caterers set the tables to the banquet room up all wrong, all the vases had flowers but no water (granted they were plastic, but I wanted them to look real, okay?), and the ushers hadn't ushered anyone anywhere. But from my perspective the day was flawless, joyful and smooth. No one noticed the mistakes. She makes the planning easy, your day easy, but she also makes the hit to your wallet easier too. You're welcome;)

Wedding planning is a huge task. You have tons of vendors and personal details you want expressed on your special day. I found Heather and am so lucky I did. From the little questions like do these two match, to the big ones like who is the better DJ. She knows her stuff. She does the research and gets what you want. After doing tons of research on a great wedding planner, she gets the job done at a reasonable price and goes above and beyond what I expected.

I hired the Pdplanners team for "Day Of" coordinating as a gift to my sister for her wedding. They did such a Phenomenal job! They have very reasonable pricing, they are organized and were on time for every meeting and for the day of. They made sure every detail was attended to and my sister and brother in law had nothing to worry about! Grace had the best interest of my sister and brother in law in mind, she made sure exactly what they wanted was executed and made their wedding night definitely a night to remember. I already booked Perfect Day Planners for my daughters 16th birthday party, and the details are already looking great!
