Tina did a wonderful job coordinating our DIY wedding, which was the first at our venue. She made sure that our large families, bridal party, myself & groom were happy & taken care of, all while managing many vendors & the bumps that come along with any wedding. Thank you, Tina!

I hired LeslieAnne to cook dinner for a bachelorette party at our Airbnb in Woodstock, NY. She worked with our budget, and created a menu that fit all dietary needs such as gluten free, dairy free, meat free etc. She also kept me in the loop about the freshest ingredients, and prices of food. She also made time to check out the Airbnb kitchen the week before to make sure it was sufficient for her needs. She arrived on time, the food was delish and she cleaned every thing. I would use her again in a heartbeat.

Jeanne Stark is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. The second I spoke to Jeanne over the phone I knew I needed her to help me out for my wedding weekend. I had about 9 months to plan a wedding that was about two hours away from my home. I hired Jeanne to help with the execution of the weekend. Her energy is so calming and she ALWAYS has a smile on her face. Nothing is ever "too much" to her, she handles everything with ease. When Jeanne tells you she will be somewhere at a certain time, she is ALWAYS there at that time. She was never late, and I was always able to email her, call her, or text her. By the end of the weekend, Jeanne felt like family and I just LOVED working with her. We could not have done it without Jeanne, I wish I had another party to plan just so I can work with her!!!- she is the BEST!!!! We cannot thank her enough, she played a huge role in our wedding and we would recommend her to everyone!!!

Adrienne was a miracle! It was such a breeze planning my wedding having her help and knowing she'd be there for any bumps along the road. My husband and I could rest assured knowing that she understood exactly what we wanted our wedding to be. Adrienne was also amazing at responding quickly to my bridezilla requests, many of which came last minute and after I'd already changed my mind a thousand times before. Her patience and kindness really helped me stay sane, and all of her hard work resulted in a perfect day for us. Adrienne has everything a bride can ask for in a wedding planner!

Dinner party for 12 for special occasion at my home. Donna took care of EVERYTHING from tablescape to invitations to cooking and serving a fabulous meal. Only thing that could make it better - if she were twins. Lovely to deal with, courteous, prompt and knew exactly what and when we needed it. Mindreader.

Pabvon was our wedding day coordinator last year (May 4, 2013). To say she was wonderful is an understatement. Pabvon worked with both my husband and I during the months leading up to our big day. She was very detailed oriented which was evident the day of the wedding. From organizing the bridal party to keeping the groomsmen on track to making sure my guest transitioned smoothly from the wedding to cocktail hour to the reception... I could not have had such an amazing day without Pabvon. I highly recommend her services without question! Not to mention she is funny and will keep you smiling!

Let me start by saying that Marisa is a hard worker and does not disappoint! I have worked with Marisa on two events so far and her dedication and knowledge is incomparable. She uses her contacts wisely and will work with anyone to create the best event possible. Her positive attitude and welcoming demeanor make any event easy to plan. You can rest assured and at ease that no matter what you have going on in your daily life, Marisa will be there to accommodate you in a timely fashion. The couple events that I worked with her on went wonderfully. She took care of everything from marketing, catering, advertising, radio broadcasts, talent, set up, and break down. She also made sure that everyone who deserved to be recognized was. You will not find a more honest and driven planner to organize your one of a kind event. I highly recommend Marisa Henry Events! You will not be disappointed!

My husband and I were married in 2009. We had been searching for venues and event planners that would give us the day we wanted; a formal afternoon tea party. After numerous meetings with other planners, only to walk away disappointed we met with Sal. He was as excited about our idea as we were and it really showed. Our wedding day was everything we wanted and more and we didn't have to worry about anything. Sal's enthusiastic and imaginative approach put our minds at ease. Even years later friends and family who joined us that day still tell us ours was the best wedding they've ever attended. Sal and his staff were fantastic and I would be delighted to hire him for any event I host in the future.

We booked Magnifique on KitchenSurfing.Com for a dinner party in the Hamptons. The chef was very polite, intelligent and attentive to my needs. He even arrived with dishes that weren't on the original menu, for no added charge! My wife and I have been dreaming of his paella ever since!

I got engaged on May 2, 2012. From that day on, my mind, body and soul was in wedding planning mode. The first couple of months of wedding planning weren’t too bad because there really wasn’t much that my fiancé and I felt like we needed to do besides selecting a date and finding a venue. Boy were we wrong. I mean, neither of us had planned a wedding before so we had no idea what was in store. It was when I stared to get mini migraines and panic attacks when thinking about vendors, décor, transportation, themes, food selection, guest list management, etc., that I knew that we needed help. My searches for wedding planners lead me to the Knot, WeddingWire and Craigslist. On September 25, 2012, I came across an ad on craigslist for Events by Jackie M. Even though I have always been skeptical of any craigslist ad, something told me to contact Jackie M. This was one of the best decisions of my life. From our first meeting with Jackie M, to our last meeting prior to my wedding day, Jackie was prepared, knowledgeable about her craft, open to hearing any and all ideas, forthcoming with her own ideas, but not too pushy or forceful about it, always smiling from ear to ear, super responsive with emails, texts, calls, aware of budgets and able to find affordable alternatives to capture her clients vision, organized beyond belief with notes and reminders of each meeting she has with her clients, able to attend as many vendor meetings as her clients would like her to. I could go on and on and on about how essential Jackie M was in making my wedding day and planning process up to that day stress free and everything I could ever dream it to be. My fiancé, Vlad, was very skeptical about getting a planner. He swore we didn’t need one and that we could do it all on our own. I was shocked to see how quickly after our first meeting with Jackie his tune changed. Even though she didn’t know it, she was able to convince him just by her attitude and honesty. Additionally, our wedding venue also offered a wedding coordinator. Jackie did not view this coordinator as competition, but rather made sure to work hand in hand with her to ensure that the venue stayed informed of all my many details and expectations. Jackie’s ability to work well with all my vendors was very impressive and also put my fiancé and I at ease. Never did we have to step in to any uncomfortable matters because Jackie already had it covered. On the day of the wedding, September 28, 2013, Jackie was outstanding. We had a total of 262 guests. Jackie was professional, but very personable to all of our guests. I had many family members tell me after the wedding how helpful Jackie was in helping them find their seats or keeping the guests informed about what was going on. Jackie also created our ceremony programs which were beautifully made and also decorated our ceremony pergola. So beautiful! She also put together our reception centerpieces as well as other décor surprises that she included for us. We loved them all! I highly recommend (and have already) Jackie M to anyone in need of a phenomenal wedding planner who is easy to get along with, open minded, readily available even though she has clients and weddings booked almost every weekend. She is also very affordable and willing to work with all wedding budgets. Events by Jackie M. is a wedding planning experience you can’t afford to miss!

There is truly nothing that Corie cannot do! As an Acting Coach and Mentor she meets a performer where they are at (all ages and all experiences), and brings out the best of them. She listens, she motivates, she inspires. Her latest regional productions that she sat in the Director's Chair for resulted in performances from the most seasoned of actors that were beyond what anyone thought they could be; Corie doesn't give up and stands strong in her convictions and vision. As a Makeup Artist/Designer, she has imagination, endless energy, and a keen eye for detail that results in an end product that is beyond what you can imagine. She is a collaborator and a true Artist. As an Event Planner, she puts the E in Event with her Effervescence, Excellence, Execution and Endless creativity. HIGHLY Recommended on ALL Levels.

Julie and Jazzed Events not only helped me plan my wedding - but they put on the show! While I (the bride) was busy being in love, Julie and Jazzed carried the weight and burden of making my love turn into a marriage through a beautiful backyard wedding. Julie and Jazzed was able to connect me nearly all of the vendors for my wedding and helped me achieve my wedding budget goal. We succeeded and was able to come in just under budget. There are many, obviously, important aspects of a wedding... you have the flowers, church reservations, wedding party coordination, food, drinks, timing, fittings, etc. - but the bride should never be burdened with the details. The bride should be focused on the love and marriage she is about to enter. Julie and Jazzed truly helped me be able to keep my eye on the prize... my now husband. I encourage brides to seriously consider and entrust your special day to Jazzed Events. They will not only take care of it all, but they will ensure a smooth - and beautiful wedding.

Eileen helped us to plan our wedding which was on September 6th, 2014, at the Hopkins Vineyard. We started working with her in February, so there was a lot to plan and organize within a short period of time. From the beginning, Eileen was quick to respond to emails and phone calls, and was able to work around our crazy schedules when arranging to meet with us. She was always on time for our scheduled meetings and never canceled on us. She helped us pick vendors, advising us on the myriad of details along the way. In addition to amazing organizational skills and attention to detail, Eileen also has a great personality, which makes her a pleasure to work with. On the actual day of our wedding, everything came together perfectly. Eileen arranged all the delivery times, and was on site for all deliveries to ensure the correct items were being delivered & placed. Even a massive thunderstorm an hour before our ceremony didn't faze Eileen - she went above and beyond to make sure nothing was damaged by the rain, and that all was put back in place just in time (we were lucky in that the storm cleared a few minutes before our ceremony). Eileen stayed for the whole wedding, always making sure things were going as planned. We couldn't have had such a beautiful wedding without Eileen!

I've worked with Oye on a large gala (85 attendees) and an intimate garden party (15 people). He and his crew did a wonderful job on both occasions. Oye's ideas are fun, original, and not cost-prohibitive. He is flexible, really listens to his customers...and everyone has a great time. I have three daughters and am keeping his business cards for when they start with their major celebrations.
