My husband and I used RJC Studios for our wedding DJ/MC, lighting, and photobooth. During the planning process, Robert was both extremely professional but also fun and easy to talk to. He had lots of print-outs with general wedding planning advice which really shows that he cares about his clients and he got really excited about my lighting ideas which made ME really excited! Everything was flawless on my wedding day (10/22/2016). We had to do the ceremony inside due to rain, but the mic was perfect and there was no audio feedback or problems. The cocktail hour music played exactly as I wanted it to and at a perfect volume. The main banquet room looked GORGEOUS and I am forever grateful for Robert for creating the starry night/galaxy ceiling that I had wanted so badly. It was SO cool, everyone loved it, and I can't wait to see the photos! The actual DJ/MC portion went perfectly as well, the music was always on-point and exactly what we wanted. For our first dance, we wanted one or two lines from the song "Everlong" by the Foo Fighters to be ... magically "erased". I don't know what to call it, but he knew exactly what I meant and just magically took it out. It made the song even more beautiful and I really appreciated how willing he was to do anything we needed. Craig the MC was incredibly friendly, helpful, and funny. I thought I would have to coordinate things like the order of people for reception introductions, but he came out and did it for me. Really nice having him there and his MC'ing was great, he even made some small announcements when asked to alert people to some of the extra little activities we had. The photobooth was also the highest quality one I've ever been in. The lighting was very flattering (trust me, very important) and they could print several strips so everyone was sure to get one. Robert showed me how we could use a green-screen and give our guests two options-- one with a galaxy background for normal people and one with Star Wars backgrounds for the nerds in our lives (our theme was space/galaxy so we wanted to have some nerdy elements in the details). Let me tell you, I am so thankful he gave me that choice because people had a total blast with it!! The staff gave us the photobooth-guestbook the night-of, a black high-quality album that we got to look at the next morning over coffee. Absolutely money well-spent. The photobooth operator ladies were also super polite and fun and were very tolerant of our crazy loud and drunk guests. I appreciate that. :) Overall, I have 0 negative things to say about RJC Studios. The price was right within our budget and they deserve much more. I am so grateful that Robert came to me through thumbtack because he helped make the best night of my life beautiful and fun and made the process stress-free. Thank you for everything, Robert!

We worked with Katherine Fonsella from DeCicco events and cuisine and she was WONDERFUL. We were planning a pre-wedding dinner for about 100 people in the Tarrytown area, but we live in Northern California. We did not know any venues or caterers or suppliers. Katherine helped us find a great, unusual loft venue, arranged all the decor, tables, lighting, and set up the catering from DeCiccos. The staff were excellent, the food was very good, everything went off perfectly. We are so appreciative of all that Katherine did to make our event wonderful!

We feel very luck to have found such a great planner for our wedding. Anastasiya was flexible with working with us based on our needs and was very professional in working with us and the other vendors we hired. She was easily reachable and would keep me and my husband on track to make sure we made decisions in a timely manner. She was also adaptable and able to handle the details of a Hindu ceremony, and worked with my family to get everything right. The decor and flow of the wedding were perfect, and everything really went better than I imagined. She and her team were a pleasure to work with!

I cannot say enough great things about Adrienn and my excellent experience. She not only tailored my gown excellently, but I also purchased another gown from her for a future event. My daughter also found 2 fabulous dresses too. Anyone who needs any alterations, dress design, wedding gowns, bridesmaid dress, etc. You cannot go wrong with Adrienn. Highly recommend!! Great style and fabulous experience.

The team at Harvest and Revel was incredible to work with for planning our wedding. Sara Elise was always professional, responsive and handled many of the details of our wedding. Her staff that came in to work the event were incredible -- friendly, accommodating, and a true team that banded together to make the night great! We had ALL our guests comment on how delicious the food was, and on top of that, it was sustainable, local and good for us and the earth. Cannot recommend the ladies at Harvest and Revel enough!

I highly recommend Linda!! She was fantastic and the calligraphy was beautiful. She addressed and assembled about 140 wedding invitations for me. She was super responsive throughout the process and delivered ahead of schedule. She also went to the post office and had the cards hand stamped. I was in between two ink styles and she provided sample pictures and her advice. She provides the same traditional style and service of very high end calligraphers at more reasonable price. I will likely have her also do my place setting cards next. Hire Linda and you will be very happy!!

Positivity, professionalism, honesty and diligence: the four qualities I looked for when interviewing wedding planners in June. Deepti is extraordinary and surpasses all expectations. We cannot recommend her highly enough! We are a same-sex couple who had a Hindu Indian wedding weekend. Deepti helped us plan everything for our wedding and reception at 501 Union in Brooklyn. We had so many specialized vendors (henna artist, dhol player, mandap builder) as well as the typical vendors (caterer, decorator, DJ, rental company). Deepti is highly organized with a google spreadsheet accessible to all that made the details clear. And she stayed on top of us to read it, update it and to give feedback on our decision making process. One of Deepti's best qualities is her grace under pressure. She speaks warmly and professionally—even when the brides are stressed and when there were unexpected vendor challenges. When the wedding planning felt overwhelming, Deepti was there to lend clarity and calmness. Our wedding was seamless. From the baraat, to our wedding entrance, to the cocktail hour and reception. Everything ran on time because of Deepti's diligence and professionalism. We were more confident because of her honesty. We knew we could pull off this entire weekend in just 6 months because of Deepti’s extraordinary wedding planning skills. Thank you, Deepti, for everything. We are so lucky we found you!

I cannot express enough how thankful I was to have Cindy coordinating my wedding weekend. Not only did she take all the hoopla of decorations that I had bought and fashioned them into a beautiful bohemian romantic wedding setup, she ran my wedding rehearsal, picked up our dessert bar items the day of the wedding, navigated some tense family moments as a magical buffer, and also made sure that I felt taken care of all day, well into our reception (shoutout to the whiskey sour deliveries)! Cindy is thoughtful, talented, professional, encouraging, flexible, and has impeccable taste! I met Cindy when I was ready to rip my hair out due to wedding planning stress, and because of her (and Jac!) I was able to relax and enjoy my wedding day. That is an invaluable service, and Cindy puts way too low a price on it for all she offers. I cannot recommend her highly enough, and would not use anyone but her in the future for event planning services. Thank you again and again for all you did, Cindy!

Where do i start Melyssa was great. I hired Alchemist Events to plan my wedding in SC 4/7/18. She came down early and was very organized. She gave my girl a schedule and meant business. 1st time ever my girls where ever on time. It rained for the wedding and Melyssa didn't care she told me its blessings from God lets do this lol. I forgot all about the rain and i really enjoyed myself. Everything was on-time and she was very professional. I would highly recommend her

Without Brittney our wedding would not have happened! Her help as our Day Of Coordinator ensured that every detail of the wedding was handled efficiently and perfectly. Knowing that Brittney was making sure that every vendor knew where to go and how to set our things up made it so much easier for us to focus on getting ready and enjoying our day. Once the wedding was under way she continued to keep everything and everyone running smoothly and made sure that every planned event went off without a hitch. Even though she wasn't acting as our wedding planner, she was always available to help answer any of our questions and offer her advice while we solidified our arrangements in the weeks leading up to the wedding. Her fun and positive attitude was so helpful in keeping us sane as well! I can't overstate enough how integral Brittney was to making our wedding as perfect as it was!

I started out on the wedding planning process on my own. Towards the end, I started getting so confused and had no idea what was appropriate, what went well together, and how to make decisions. I reached out to Thumbtack for a wedding planner and what a blessing that has been! I immediately clicked with Laura by phone and when we met for coffee, I knew she was the guidance and help I needed. She picked right up and jumped in, learning about us, my personal style, and was a lifesaver. She was available throughout the process for any questions, big or small. She and Kelly are both professional and they know how to get the job done. When meeting with vendors or at the Rehearsal, they would look at my face and know immediately what I preferred. The wedding day went so smoothly. It was all actually a blur of activity going on around me, but I was so calm and relaxed the whole day and I owe it to the trust I placed in Elegant Events by Laura. She coordinated with the photographer for pictures so it went so quickly that we had time to relax and spare before the ceremony and before the reception. She made sure that we ate at the reception and that we had everything we needed. The bridesmaids and I started calling them the planning ninjas. They were everywhere all at once. For example, two of my bridesmaids started walking with me to the bathroom and we turned around and Laura was right there! haha! Elegant Events was worth every penny and my only advice to couples planning a wedding is to hire a planner and if you want the best, work with Laura and Kelly! My only regret is that I didn't reach out to have her plan from scratch! A million stars for them.

The Bella Couture Team was outstanding. They took care of every little detail including things we would not have thought of . They absolutely were the reason our special day was so special. They were responsive to every need and concern and were constantly putting our minds at ease when the panic started to set in. Every time we had a concern they immediately addressed it and put our minds at ease. We could not have asked for a better planner for our wedding. They are truly amazing!

Lauren and Justine made not only the day of the wedding run without any faults, but also the weeks leading up to it. From the first planning meeting with Lauren, it was evident to me that the wedding was in superbly capable hands. She took over communication with the vendors and confirmed every single moving part of the wedding to create a master schedule, and then check in every step of the way to be sure that everyone was aware of the scheduling and to get live updates on the status of the schedule. Her organization made it simple for us to understand what tasks we had left to do and clearly showed a plan to execute all outstanding items. I wasn't worried about forgetting any details because I knew Lauren had them all handled and would also check all of them with us while adding her experienced suggestions. On the day of the wedding, Lauren and Justine went beyond my imagination in how proactive, cheerful, helpful, and all around amazing they were. Lauren cued each parent and bridesmaid when to walk down the aisle in the ceremony. Justine communicated with our reception venue and helped set it up while the ceremony was ongoing. At the end of the night, Justine was able to pack up all items and make sure everything we needed to return to us got back to us that evening safely. There was no stress in either getting what we needed to the venue or taking everything back home. Due to Lauren's organization with her pack lists prior to the wedding and Justine's meticulousness, there was nothing in question for us. Hiring Lauren was our best wedding decision - we can't have imagined our day running so seamlessly without her and her team. Any prospective couples out there should get their dates on Lauren's calendar and rest assured that their day will run perfectly. We had the most magical day, and not once were we concerned about any planning details. Our vendors, bridal party, and guests noted how organized and smooth the event ran, all thanks to YWbL!

The luckiest part to have a good wedding is to find the right wedding planner. Ani is the one that you cannot miss. A good friend can try to assist you for the day and the plan, but sometimes more help or ideas you get and the busier you get because most people do not know about a wedding. Ani is the one who will turn to be your best friend and think in your shoes, at the same time, she knows what she’s doing and making everything goes as smooth as you can imagine. Ani is smart, sharp, calm, warm-hearted, and sweet. She gives you the peaceful mind that nothing will go wrong because she’s around to help you all she can. She gets things done and is always on top of her game. She’s punctuate and professional. She’s also creative to make your wedding unique and special. She’s flexible for anything you ask for the wedding. So many things could go out of expectations. And there you have Ani who comes the earliest and leaves the latest. She’s willing to listen and cover all the holes. She’s a great communicator. No matter the priest, or a huge wedding party or vendors, girls or kids, everyone loves Ani. She’s very patient. You just love her and thank God she’s there for you. She cheers for you and feels every moment of your big day. If you picture your wedding like all the movies full of romance and fairy tales, then you must have a wedding planner, you must have Ani. Because the real wedding is like a war, you have many things to do but you cannot do on your own, you don’t get enough sleep, you cannot have enough time talk to everyone you want to, there is so much crisis you have to deal with, you plan so well but everything still goes wrong. People could easier get frustrated and even a nervous breakdown for the mixed emotions of the wedding day, happiness, sadness, or you are touched, or you miss the people who cannot be there to share. The wedding day is hard, as beautiful as it could be, but I learned the lesson from my engagement party that I will have a wedding planner for my party. A year and half of preparation for this big day, it has to be perfect. Then, I have Ani and I am so thrilled I found her, she contributed so much to my perfect day. I walked into the reception and everything was exactly I wanted. She just knows, without too much explanation, without the back and forth. If you want to have regrets and more enjoyment for the biggest day of your life, then contact Ani. Her value is priceless.

I have had the opportunity to attend two baby showers organized by One Eleven Events. The owner clearly was able to bring the expecting mother's visions to life! When I entered both baby showers (one was outdoor, the other was indoor) I felt like the theme was brought to life. The invitation, decorations, food, & party favors all matched the themes flawlessly. One Eleven Events pays great attention to detail and clearly takes pride in their work! They think about guests of all ages when preparing food and drinks at their events, which is something that other party planners tend to miss. The games, atmosphere and prizes were always memorable. From my experience One Eleven Events always put the client first and it makes for a great day!

What can I say about MKK EVENTS???!!! They took my wedding to a new level. I tried to plan my wedding by myself and was failing all around. I was one month away from my wedding and I needed - venue - florist - linen - photographer - videographer The team came in and transformed my ENTIRE wedding. They got me everything I needed. My theme was "enchanted garden" and they found me a venue in a garden. THE BEST PART WAS HOW COST EFFICIENT THEY WERE!!!

My fiance and I used Distinctive Visions event Management to take care of our wedding invitations and the service was nothing short of wonderful. I wasn’t entirely sure where I wanted to go with the style for them (we have 6 different colors in the wedding), but Nya was patient and helped lead us in the right direction. I am very happy with the final product, and we didn’t have to do anything except mail them! She worked hard to stay under our budget and was still able to deliver the perfect invitations. I will definitely use Distinctive Visions again in the future for more than just invitations.

Novaoriginal Events was the event designer for my wedding last year. I had seen pictures of her work and decided to trust her with the most important day of my life. From the décor to the flowers to the lighting to the cake, even the dinner menus, it was more than I could have even imagined. She planned every detail which took alot of stress off me! She took my vision and turned it into such a flawless luxury event my family is still raving about it. She was very warm and professional and responsive to what I wanted. So of course I turned to her again to design my baby shower this past July. Again it was a gorgeous 5 star event beyond my expectations. I would recommend her for any event. See my pics below! I'm still in awe.
