Of course like everyone else on here, I was looking for the perfect wedding planner LOL. I researched for what felt like forever (to my husband anyways), and I finally found Holly. She was referred to me by several friends and also a thumbtack pro for a 4th year in a row and 2018 Couples Choice Award winner from Wedding Wire as well! So I was finally willing to make the commitment and have her help me with what seemed like a lot of vendor phone calls. From the initial planning to the day of, everything was perfect. She helped pick my venue.. did all the vendor calls and planning perfected my flowers and my vision of what I wanted, for me and all 7 bridesmaids! We als had to find the perfect venue as well as authentic southern food catered in -and even made my mom ( who is incredibly picky but has great yet expensive taste) was Soooo happy!!! My mom thought we spent 6x more than we did, but Holly was able to find what I wanted and my husband Cal as well.. and keep us on time and in budget! Holly -you’re a lifesaver!
I am writing to let everyone know how pleased we were with Kelly Houlehan as a wedding coordinator for our daughter’s wedding, June 24, 2017. The ceremony was held at the MN Arboretum and we some scheduling challenges that Kelly navigated easily. When I arrived at the Arboretum at 11:00 am the day of the wedding, I had no idea Kelly and I would not get into the reception venue to prepare the tables until much later in the day when I was scheduled for photos. Kelly used her time efficiently to listen to my detailed plan, sort the décor to facilitate the transfer of flowers, candles, lights, pictures, and butterflies to their respective locations. She set up everything without my help. The reception room was absolutely stunning and the ceremony lovely. I could never have successfully done the décor had it not been for Kelly’s hard work, efficient planning and professionalism. Kelly was also on hand to reminded us of our photo timelines and got us to the ceremony location on time. She served as a point person for any questions that came up during the reception like helping the DJ to upload the slide show, coordinating the event with the Arboretum staff and keeping my relatives' meals warm while they stepped out for a minute. Kelly was there to respond to every question or problem that arose. She also help organize clean up and packed the décor at the end of the evening. WOW!! Kelly was easy to work with and made it possible for me to enjoy my daughter’s wedding, eat a wonderful meal and celebrate the evening with dancing. I cannot speak more highly of Kelly’s ability to listen carefully, actualize that plan, herd our families around to pictures, ceremony and reception, and clean up. She is an exceptional contractor for the Wedding Collective. I would highly recommend Kelly’s services to everyone who is planning a wedding. Thank you Kelly.
I could not have asked for a better wedding planner! Shellee is an all around wonderful woman who made our wedding day the best day ever. She helped us organize, set up, and decorate our reception. She made all our flowers (bouquets, boutonniere's and flower arrangements for the tables). She even spent our entire wedding day doing last minute items to make everything go smoothly and she was there during the reception to keep things in tip top shape. I gave her a few of my ideas of what I wanted and she ran with them and made it a hundred times better than I could of imagined. Absolutely loved her!! I still to this day hear how wonderful our wedding was from other friends and family. She is very well organized and is there to make it stress free for you and your family. I would recommend her any day!
Jaime did an amazing job of helping me plan my destination wedding. I tried to do it on my own, but after 4 days of searching for the right venue, I was feeling overwhelmed. I hired Jaime as my wedding coordinator and she was able to provide several options within hours of my initial contact with her. She respected my budget and only offered services in my financial range. She was available every time I contacted her with a question, concern, or idea. She created a Pinterest board exclusively for my wedding, which allowed me to see ideas that fit with my desires. I'm a Type B personality and just don't enjoy the overwhelming amount of work that goes into planning a wedding. Jaime took on the challenges of my destination wedding with zeal. She doesn't treat event planning like a job; she takes the time to make people feel like their event is the most important thing she's ever done. I highly recommend Jaime for any event planning. I will definitely hire her again!
Chris was awesome, he met with my wife and I about an hour before the ceremony. In that time he met and greeted my wife, family & friends. Got me to feel comfortable and not so nervous even told us all a little about himself. When it came to the ceremony he was able to complete it exactly how I wanted. I asked for it to be simple and sweet, and gave exactly that and also acknowledged that I just wanted to get to our marriage and not be so concerned with the wedding. My marriage ceremony was small and simple and when I do decide to have a wedding I would definitely choose to use him again. And I would recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant. Also it was awesome to find out that we were his first same-sex couple.
We chose Bouquets N' Such to do our floral arrangements for our wedding. I worked with Ms. Trudy! Anyone planning a wedding knows how stressful things can be. Ms. Trudy made this the least stressful part of my planning. She knows her stuff and gave me plenty of options to work from. She listened to exactly what I wanted, she worked with our budget and she kept in constant communication with me, any questions I had, she promptly responded, she even anticipated questions I would have and provided that information up front! I wish they had 10 stars because this company deserves it. I received so many compliments on all of the floral arrangements at our wedding. She provided service that was "To good to be true," but it was TRUE!! I cannot say enough about them. They were genuinely happy for our wedding and made my experience so worth it! I would recommend them to anyone for any occasion.
Ania and her team were simply amazing. They took what was a tight window for a room flip and made it happen effortlessly. Throughout the night, we continually received positive feedback about Ania and her crew from our DJ, caterer, etc. She and her team are definitely the glue that makes a great wedding come together.
Holly did an amazing job with my wedding. I don't know how we would have done it without her. She went above and beyond to make our day special. If you are looking for an event coordinator she's the best!
I have seen many events catered by Penny and her team, and am always impressed by how seamlessly and flawlessly they take place. Penny always comes more than prepared to make the event perfect, has a lot of creativity, great menu options, and very affordable prices. We've had her to banquets, buffets, anniversary parties, client events, birthday parties, barbecues, garden parties, and more. Hopefully one of these days we'll get to see her work her magic on a wedding, too!
Abby planned my wedding last summer and I couldn't have asked for a better person to do it! She was extremely organized, reliable, and her creative ideas and solutions blew me away. Do not hesitate to have Abby work for you, she is one of the best and hardest workers I know!
Minka Events really came through for my wedding. A destination wedding planned in just 6 months. They were able to capture just what I liked as well as needed. I was never really the enthusiastic wedding planning bride so it was truly a sigh of relief when Minka Events took over.
When I first put out a bid on thumbtack for our wedding, I got a lot responses. Melissa was the first person that didn't make me feel like a dollar sign. She took the time to get to know me and my partner on a personal level and made sure to reflect that in all of the details of our wedding. She and her team are incredible. From the first day we met to the day after our wedding, she has everything covered. I highly recommend working with her!

Here at Simply Elegant Events our motto is: We are for everybody, on every budget.
I have 25 years of experience as a makeup artist, working for Chanel, Christian Dior, and Lancome. I also have 8 years' experience as a wedding planner.
I go into each event with one simple goal, to make you happy. Events planning and floral design are two deep passions of mine that I love sharing with my clients. Lets get started on planning your big day!
I strive for excellence in all areas, as if it were my own wedding day. I also offer assistance with vendor recommendations, favor recommendations and preparation, and all items that are to go home with the bride's parents that night, are packed and ready to be loaded into their vehicles before I leave the reception venue (usually about the time the dancing starts). A detailed Contract of Services is signed by the wedding coordinator and the bride's parents, and a copy supplied to the bride's parents at least two weeks prior to the wedding weekend.
