We knew from the moment we met Gabrielle that she was the planner for us! She greeted us with a smile on her face and was dressed to impress. At our first meeting Kevin and I felt like she really listened to us and took our suggestions and ideas (even if they were crazy) to heart. We had talked to a few other wedding planners and they seemed more enthusiastic about their own ideas than the ones we had. In over a year of working with Gabrielle, I never once felt like she was trying to push her vision or what she wanted and that was really refreshing. We had the style of the event under control we just needed someone to execute all the little details on the day of the wedding. During this process Gabrielle became more like good friend then just our wedding planner. I found myself saying "I can't wait to show Gabrielle a picture of my wedding dress" or "the button bouquets are done... wait until Gabrielle sees them!" She was always checking in to make sure we were on track or if we had any questions. To say Gabrielle went above and beyond our expectations is an understatement. In fact, she saved the wedding on more than one occasion. When our caterer fell through she was right there with other suggestions. She helped us find so many additional vendors like our vintage Photobooth and where to rent furniture even though we signed up for just the Day of Coordination package! Our wedding day was beautiful, amazing, and everything we hoped it to be thanks to Gabrielle and her husband Matt. They really are the "wedding dream team."

The food and service exceeded our expectations. Chef Bradley brought someone to help and they were both very professional start to finish, made excellent food and cleaned up everything before they left. It was exactly what we wanted and we never felt strange although they were in our open concept house it went very smoothly and felt like an intimate dinner party still.

I could not be happier with Mr. & Mrs. Cat ering Service. Everyone raved about how good everything tasted and how fresh everything was. The portions were very generous and all our party attendees took at least 2 to go containers of food home with them. Since we a had some no shows of people that RSVPd saying they were coming and didnt, I was able to connect with the Buffalo City Mission homeless female shelter and donate 50 or so meals to them that evening around 730pm. They were thrilled! I would absolutely recommend this caterer for each and every party or get get her where a lot of mouths need fed. You can't go wrong with the price, quality, customer service and portion sizes.

"I attended many theatrical events and parties that Lisa planned, and I really enjoyed them. She is very organized, creative, detail-oriented and personable. She was also able to generate a lot of media coverage and public awareness for those events. I would choose Lisa to help me with an event because of her expertise with printing, staging, press, details and people skills. You would be very happy with your choice" Cyndee S.

Joanne helped me with the decorations of my December wedding. I needed professional help in decorating a huge empty reception hall area. I knew that she would be a good fit for the job I was looking for, after reading her introduction pamphlet via Thumbtack. I know she offers a whole range of wedding-related services (from rentals to full wedding coordination), however the service I used was only decoration so my review will be speaking to that part. My review is that she (and her team) was amazingly creative and committed to the task, willing to go all the way to meet my requests and even beyond expectations. Our reception area turned out to be really really beautiful, I was very happy with how it looked, and a lot of people commented to me that the room looked very lovely and beautiful. 5 stars with no doubt! :) Speaking more in depth and about the process - we had a short time planning the wedding and had hired her only 3 months prior to our wedding. She was fast in terms of getting into the action. In total I think we met about 3-4 times in person (discussing, planning, trying things around), had many email/Pinterest communications in between as well. In terms of design, I think I had specific things I wanted particular for my wedding and I wanted to do some part of the decorations myself (wanted to do some DIY), so we had to work it out so that everything goes smoothly together. My theme was not simple (not just one-color theme), but after seeing my Pinterest pins and photos I sent her, I think she got a spot-on sense of what I was hoping for in my head. I liked and appreciated that she was very flexible, and was willing to hear me and match the style I was explaining to her. And she made it come true in an even more beautiful way than I imagined. We actually had a session in which she actually put together and showed a sample centerpiece to us - this was very helpful for me, to actually see the real version of what we had been discussing. In terms of communication, she and I used Pinterest a lot to discuss what style/design we were talking about, and this was helpful because it lets us talk in pictures (it is really hard to explain a design with just words). She was prompt and proactive in communicating with me. Plus, I also appreciated that she was willing to contact and speak directly with many other parties involved on behalf of me (e.g., the church personnel, the caterer), as I had been taxed in terms of my time and resources. She has much experience and she seems to know her way around. She and the team is also amazing in terms of how they make everything "work". We had the reception hall available to be decorated within less than 24 hours of the day, and she and her crew came and did everything to transform the place overnight. She also has a plenty of things that you need for a wedding (props, gadgets, anything) and she was able to let me rent it right away when I realized that I needed X and Y like 2 days before the wedding. If you ask her and chances are she may have it available for you to borrow. There are only a couple things that I thought could be improved. Although overall Joanne was very flexible and amenable to work with my budget, I do think in retrospect that it would have been nicer to have a discussion right at the beginning about the cost estimate (the breakdown and total, quotes of individual components) so that I would not have to worry further down about meeting the budget. Overall I am really happy and lucky to have worked with Joanne, who made everything beautiful for my wedding. She has amazing talent, passion, commitment to her work, and is willing to go all the way to work wonders!

    I just want to share my wonderful experience I had with April and her catering business An Enchanted Taste. Not only was everything prepared to perfection but was so very delicious. My guests really enjoyed her tasty delicacies. I have given her business cards to my family and friends so they too can enjoy April catering their party.

      I have worked with Limitless Innovation by CK two times now. The first time was May 2016 where they planned a surprise college graduation party for my husband and they did an amazing job. They were extremely accommodating in the planning process and made adjustments to make sure that all of my wishes were met. Working with Limitless Innovation by CK allowed me to relax and not stress about the mundane details of planning which allowed me to relax and enjoy the graduation party with no worries. During the planning process and on the day of the event, both Cassandra and Keanna were extremely professional. I enjoyed working with them so much that I have utilized their services again to plan my jewelry launch party that was on April 22, 2017. Once again the work of Limitless Innovations by CK was excellent. I highly recommend Limitless Innovation by CK to anyone seeking event planning services from a detail oriented, customer satisfaction driven company and plan to seek their services for any events that I have now or in the future.

      Erica was great! As a single mom, planning my son's first birthday, she really helped alleviate the anxiety of planning his party. She listened to everything I wanted and made it happen within my small budget. She was with me all day to help set up the party, make sure everyone was having fun and got their goodie bags, and she even helped tear down and clean up after the party was over. I would trust her with any party I want to throw in the future.

      The best decision we made when planning our reception was to hire Molly with Anchor Events. She went above and beyond to make sure we had a beautiful and stress-free reception. Molly was always very responsive, professional, flexible throughout the planning process and had great suggestions to fit our budget. She created perfect centerpieces and decorations for the reception that were better than we could have imagined. She wrangled all our vendors with ease to ensure they were all on time and on the same page about the day's agenda. She even ran interference for us when a vendor was causing stress and got us drinks at our reception! If you are thinking about hiring a wedding planner or a decorator you should book Anchor Events, you won't regret it.

      We booked Beamin' Sounds Entertainment for DJ services for both our wedding ceremony and reception. Let me tell you, we could not have been more fortunate than to make that initial call to them. Brent, the owner of Beamin' Sounds was our DJ. We met with him four or five times to plan ALL details of our wedding. He was not only a DJ but also a wedding planner, providing us with full ceremony and reception agendas/itineraries, copies of the ceremony music for our rehearsal, and so much more. He adjusted my train and veil before walking down the aisle with my dad, and kept the party going the ENTIRE NIGHT (from 5:00 - midnight!) and everyone on the dance floor. The flow of the reception was perfect, thanks to him, as everything was timed perfect and no one was ever just sitting, waiting for the next event or dance. There was always something going on. He brought so much personality and energy to our wedding. I must say, I truly miss having meetings with him and seeing him, because he made us feel like family. Do not regret your choice of DJ's for your wedding, the music affects your day more than you know, and Beamin' Sounds will not let you regret your choice on your big day. I even had a problem with another vendor (unfortunately) that did not perform their service up to quality and was a BIG problem at our wedding, and Brent went out of his way to write a letter and talk to the owner of this other vendor to support me in my claims on his own time- he was so helpful and supportive when I was dealing with a very, very disappointing aspect of our big day. Worth every penny, as you get not only get a DJ, but also a wedding planner, and a friend! Beamin' Sounds MADE our wedding day what it was.

      Kelly is amazing! From her creative party planning ideas and excellent customer service to her ability to envision all the necessary details, throwing a party was a snap! She helped me with a business launch party and I was so pleased with the results. She provided options for food and decorations and took my feedback and made them a reality. By far the best decision I made!

        Truly set my mind at ease during my pre-wedding craziness. HM went above and beyond to source quality flowers and found comparable alternatives, based on demand. The entire wedding party looked amazing with no detail left unnoticed. Simply perfect. HM sat down with me and honored my design ideas, and made appropriate recommendations. This was the finishing touch and she knocked it out of the park. Thank you HM. You are truly gifted.

          My parents and I hired Andrea in June 2010 to serve as our Planner/Event Coordinator for my June 2011 wedding. When working with Andrea you can tell that she is very skilled and seasoned professional. She really took much of the stress out of planning the wedding. She prepared timelines and checklists to keep our planning on track and sent these by email. She was only an email away if we had any questions. Andrea has worked with many WNY wedding vendors and gave us recommendations based on her experience. She really helped us achieve the overall look and feel we were envisioning for the wedding day with her event planning experience and by pointing us to top-notch vendors and service providers that delivered our vision. Wedding day schedules were sent to all of the vendors as to where and when things had to be in place, and Andrea made sure every vendor adhered to the schedule. On the rehearsal day and wedding day she and her team made sure that everything ran smoothly and had every detail attended to. We couldn't have been more pleased with the results. We truly had our dream wedding. If you hire Andrea to plan your wedding or event you will not be disappointed.
