It was a Awesome lifetime memorable event. My wife and I had a difficult time trying to find someone to officiate out ceremony in a short amount of time and affordable. From our first conversation I knew Khalifah would be the one to change our life. I had no doubt my fiance' (at the time) would be pleased. When she came, she had her photographer with her who captured pretty much EVERY moment. My wife and I were extremly nervous but she put us at ease. It felt like we had known them for years. We had a wonderful experience that we will never forget. Our wedding felt like it was thousands of dollars but was a great price. We are extremly grateful for Khalifah. I sent her a message on Red Bow Tie Events and said "I just want to marry my soulmate" and she made that dream a reality. She also continued to assist us with paperwork after the ceremony. Very professional. Ms. Khalifah, you are nothing short of TRUE AWESOMENESS!! Thank You So Much, Mrs. and Mrs. Sade and Tondra TaylorNov 2, 2015VerifiedRed Bow Events's reply
I love my brides! Thank you very much Tondra. You and Sade are Awesome! I'm glad to know that you knew you would be pleased. The compliments are wonderful but as long as you are happy- that's most important. All information given is just an extension of my description of my job. Thank you Tondra and Sade.
Khalifah was AMAZING. She went above and beyond and helped us plan a beautiful ceremony. She helped us choose the perfect vows and was always on time (early, even!) to our appointments. She made herself available to us if we had any questions and really put my frazzled bride mind at ease. She kept in touch up until the day of the wedding to make sure we were ready and offered her help if we needed it. Khalifah arrived nearly an hour early on the day of the wedding and helped us to organize our hectic wedding party (none of us knew where to go or stand!)She acted as a go between for my husband and I so he didn't have to see me prior to the ceremony... I can go on and on. She officiated a beautiful wedding for us that was truly memorable. She helped talk us through all of the paperwork and followed up to make sure we got our Marriage Certificate smoothly. I honestly couldn't have asked for a better officiant. THANK YOU, KHALIFAH!Sep 26, 2015Red Bow Events's reply
It is my pleasure, Ashley. I must say, I am flattered and I enjoyed every minute of it. As a wedding planner/ coordinator, it comes naturally to extend my services. Your wedding was so uniquely rustic and it is one of my favorite themes, so kudos to you. If you need assistance with anything, don't hesitate to ask. Congratulations and God Bless!
I wanted to leave this review for a long time, I contacted Red Bow Events for a quote in regards to a wedding that was supposed to take place a year ago. Unfortunately, we were not able to go through the wedding due to personal reasons...yet I wanted to take the time to leave a wonderful feedback for the lady that runs the company. She was so professional and helpful throughout the whole inquiry process. I was able to sense her caring personality through the phone and her disposition to meet my needs. Also her paperwork was on point and her ability to accomodate extremely amazing. I truly recommend this company.Feb 20, 2017VerifiedRed Bow Events's reply
Hi Johana, Thank you very much. It is extremely flattering! I wish you the best and many blessings in life. Thank you
Khalifah was fantastic! She showed up early despite bad weather and difficult driving conditions, performed a flawless ceremony and walked us through the paperwork and logistics afterward. Khalifah was also extremely helpful leading up to the wedding keeping us on track to apply for our license in time and helping us figure out the paperwork necessary for our appointment. We couldn't be happier!Sep 14, 2015VerifiedRed Bow Events's reply

Khalifah performed my wedding ceremony on 7/25/15, she did a exceptional job, she came through for me and my husband and we are truly grateful. Her professional mannerisms are a blessing to work with and we are recommending her to all our friends and family. Again thank you Khalifah your the best.Aug 2, 2015VerifiedRed Bow Events's reply
Thank you very much Marcella, your ceremony was fun, interesting and beautiful. I was honored to be apart of your union. Enjoy your new life together and many blessings.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First I let them get to know me. Allow them to ask me any questions, and whatever goes unasked, I will bring to their attention. Typically a client asks the price and information on the ceremony script but not sure about any other questions. So I, in turn, ask if they have filed their license application. Then I get real questions and I provide solutions.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I started out by throwing parties. I enjoyed coordinating kids and adult parties. I created the back drops and decorations and hand picked the color themes. Then I took it a step further and began planning weddings. Went to school for Bridal Consulting and Event Management. Here I am today.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Know what you want. If you're not sure of what you want talk to a planner and go over all aspects of a wedding and then carefully pick and choose according to your budget, style and priorities. If you run into a planner that says you need everything - please run in the opposite direction.
