Lindy was our Wedding Officiant on June 25th 2014, in Madras, Or. We had her create a sermon that was not super religious, but spiritual. After only a short conversation with us she was able to understand exactly what would fit us best, plus she was very open to tailoring all aspects to our preferences. Our interaction with her from beginning to end was very personal, and professional. She was punctual, and responded to my questions quickly. I am highly recommending her to anyone for her services!!! If you are looking someone to marry you who cares as much about your wedding as you do, Lindy is your best way to go!!!
I interviewed and hired Emee at EJP Events approximately 8 weeks before my wedding. I was interested in a small simple wedding of app. 30 people. Emee and her team provided excellent support before the wedding by supplying vendor options for me to interview and hire, excellent communications throughout reminding me of deadlines, payments and overall progress on our very tight timeframe. On the day of the wedding, Emee was one of the first people to arrive and I knew that I would not have to concern myself with any of the details of the day. Her calm demeanor and smiling face added to the joy of my special day. I highly recommend her services.
J29 events was a lifesaver the month of my wedding! As someone planning my wedding in Portland (living in Seattle) their local experience was helpful. Their experience with weddings led to great recommendations for how to work with vendors, plan the full day and make vendor recommendations when needed. Nicole was wonderful on site, and she went above and beyond to make sure the night went smoothly; all the way down to moving her hours around to ensure my rental items were returned in great shape. I rated 4 not 5 only because in months leading to the wedding, I had to follow up on my sent emails a few times to get responses. Actual execution was flawless. Thank you!!
Manny was awesome. He delivered a great and very sincere sermon for a beautiful ceremony on the beach. It is obvious that he is a guy who is passionate about peforming weddings and takes great pride, as he should, in the work he does with this. I'd recommend Manny the wedding dude to anyone!
I hired Jen McNutt-Bloom as the wedding planner for my son's wedding in Eugene this July. His new bride and he live in Hong Kong, so although they were consulted on decisions regarding their wedding, most of the wedding planning fell on my shoulders. I hired Jen last summer after she was highly recommended by the wedding coordinator at Sweet Cheeks Winery, the venue for the wedding. Jen helped me every step of the way, making recommendations for caterers, florists, DJs, photographers, etc. and letting me decide what worked with our budget. She was very generous with her time, communicating with me by phone, email, and in-person meetings, and connecting with the bride and groom by Skype and email. Her knowledge and experience in planning weddings in the Eugene area were invaluable, and her creativity, enthusiasm, and warmth were also greatly appreciated. She also was extremely helpful to me in planning a Welcome Dinner at our home. I highly recommend Jen to anyone looking for a local wedding planner. She's a winner and you can't go wrong!
Callie is so professional and fun at the same time! She does everything and makes the bride feel at ease, even if thing are going the way you didn't expect them. She is also very creative and has great ideas. She gets things done!!! Anyone would be lucky to have her help plan your wedding or event.
I could't be more happy that we hired Vanessa as our day-of-coordinator for our wedding. From the first meeting, Vanessa was professional and organized and also extremely interested in all of the details of my wedding. My expectation was really just for her to help me keep things organized on the day-of, but periodically throughout the entire wedding planning process she would reach out to offer recommendations and advice as needed. A couple weeks before the big day, she stepped in and took over for all my interactions with all of my vendors for me (she even called my hotel to see if I could check in early to drop off my wedding gown). This was such a huge relief, because she was able to filter the stressful conversations in addition to saving me TONS of time so I could enjoy my wedding week with friends and family. On the wedding day, Vanessa showed up early to take care of every need (including printing out my wedding vows that I forgot to print!) throughout the entire day she was everywhere she needed to be without anyone needing to ask! At one point, our shuttle bus (for pre-wedding photos) driver was lost, but he only spoke Spanish so we were having a hard time telling him where to go - the next thing I knew, Vanessa is sitting next to him giving step-by-step instructions IN SPANISH! Vanessa did a great job organizing so many aspect of the day, even at the end of the night, she organized a beautiful sparkler send-off and helped my in-laws load our personal items into the cars after we left. She even took some extra items that were left behind to her house for safe-keeping until I came home from my honeymoon. All-in-all.... Vanessa was the glue that held my wedding day together and I recommend her 110%
Britt was called in literally at the last minute, four weeks before the wedding after our original planner flaked out on us. I can truly say that without her, the wedding would not have the fabulous day that it was. We were having the entire wedding –ceremony and all at our house, with seating & tables for 175 guests, a buffet, open bar, a band, & a DJ. Having your home as the venue is wonderful, but also scary as there is no ‘staff’, or experienced person to lead the way. So we needed someone to help in a big way and Britt was up to the task right from the start and more, asking all the right questions, with humor and grace and calmness, helping to steady our somewhat rudderless ship. The day of the wedding, she just quietly took on all the little jobs that needed doing – so many little details that no one needed to mention, she just looked around and got things done. Without her, I know I wouldn’t have been able to relax and enjoy the moment. She was there every step, guiding all of us. Everyone commented on how great she was- in the background, but with a watchful eye on the details. So many things were taken care of, freeing our family to really experience the joy of the whole day. It was a wonderful event and no doubt, Britt was a huge part in facilitating the major success we now share in our memories. Thank you Britt! (And Bixby ;-}! )
My wife should be writing this review, but I want to take a moment to tell you what a great job Lisa (my wife) and Soleil Bliss Event Productions did for us. We had been planning our wedding for about 13 months and from the very beginning my wife knew she wanted a planner. Liz drove from Vancouver, WA to Seattle to meet with us as purely a consultation. Our first impression of Liz was here is a woman who knows how a wedding should be done. Within five minutes we knew we had found our planner. As my wife's vision of the wedding changed over the 13 months Liz was there every step of the way to help with any problems or offer solutions on how to make her plans become reality. The amount of stress that Liz took off my wife's shoulders as our special day drew near was astounding. On the day of our wedding Liz was able to fix a major dress malfunction, whip out two corsages for my wife's mother and my mother, coordinate a less than accommodating venue staff in reference to their idea of decorating, and all this was done after she had stayed up until close to 2 AM to decorate our ceremony and reception areas. Liz took a great event, location, setting, and environment and transformed it into something completely phenomenal. Our expectations were so far exceeded that we could not believe what she had created was our wedding. Thank you so very much Liz. I can't urge anybody reading this enough to talk with Liz and let her plan and coordinate your wedding. You will not regret a single moment nor worry in the slightest that your event will be anything less than extraordinary.
Nicole went above and beyond what we expected and was a wonderful day-of-wedding planner. My husband and I continue to say she was the best money we spent on any vendor! Well worth the money and service they provide!
I am still getting my practice in. If their a themed wedding that you don't think anyone else will do. I am feel blessed in making the Bride & Grooms day one to remember.
