I serendipitously met Jerry the day after the caterer for my wedding bailed on us. I am super grateful because I cannot imagine any better service for my wedding. That was the day that my wife and I dreamed about since we were little, and let's be honest -- food is the way to most peoples' heart -- so I'm very glad to receive compliments from guests that the food was excellent! My wedding was on the last weekend of Sept. 2014 at a farm near Brooks, OR. Jerry and his crew arrived several hours ahead of the ceremony start time, served up a delicious, several course meal in a banquet style, and were SO gracious to my Russian relatives who brought some Russian cuisine (which was unexpected). If you do business with Jerry, you can expect to be consoled by the air of competence he exudes. He is very approachable and kind, and is very good at painting at a picture of how the food will look like at your event.
Make up and hair. She was so fun to be around and she really wanted what was best for me. Made my wedding day so much easier! Thanks again Julie!
Morgan was my wedding day-of coordinator a few weeks ago and I couldn't be happier with her services. With her assistance and organization, I was able to forget about the details and schedule and just enjoy myself. As far as I knew, the day went off without a hitch! I highly recommend her as a wedding coordinator. She is a pleasure to work with.
Will was our wedding-day coordinator. He sat down with us prior to the wedding weekend to discuss all the ins and outs of how we wanted our wedding day to go. He directed our ceremony rehearsal the day before and on the day of the wedding worked his magic. He was very collaborative by taking our suggestions/requests and making them happen based on his own professional and artistic style. He decreased our stress and worry in a way that just allowed us to enjoy the day. Quite honestly, we wouldn't have been able to do it without him. We would highly recommend any couple use him!
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.
Creations by Ly did a most fantastic job for us. I don't think I could have planned my wedding without their help and I am so thankful they were there to help me have the most perfect wedding. They helped make my wedding day the best day of my life.
Greg was the photographer for my wedding. It was a summertime farm wedding. He was there to photograph from setup to takedown. I love the photos! Especially the posed shots of my husband and me, as well as the families. He was very professional and fun and he is very easy to talk to. It was nice having a photographer that was "just another face" at the party (not in your face). I recommend him to everyone.
Lacy was a pleasure to work with. She went above and beyond to make our special day perfect. Not only was she an excellent coordinator, but she also provided invaluable insight and suggestions that helped in our decision making leading up to the wedding day. Without Lacy, the day would not have turned out like it did. She is an extremely responsive, a great communicator, talented when it comes to calming the nerves of the wedding party, and just a wonderful person who truly cared about us and our wedding day. If I could give her more than five stars, I would – I absolutely recommend Lacy to anyone looking for a coordinator or planner.
We just celebrated my in-laws' 50th wedding anniversary. Liz and company catered our event. Liz and her sister listened to us and took our expectations to heart. They were very professional to deal with. They were prompt in responding to our texts and emails. Liz visited the event location two days ahead so she knows how to setup buffet tables. They showed up hours ahead to prepare. They were friendly and presentable. The food was absolutely delicious and each dish complimented one another. They helped in the clean up and packing all leftovers for us to take home. We had such positive experience with them. Thank you Liz and company for ensuring our event went well.
Well where do I start....I guess at the beginning, my first encounter was my wedding. I told her what I wanted and she did not hesitate, the prices were great, the flowers beautiful and she was right on time. Since then I have ordered many flower arrangements from her, birthdays, mothers day, ECT. Again prices are very fair and the flowers always fresh and delivered in a timely fashion. I would recommend Vanessa Sommerfeld to anyone for every occasion!
Autumn is lovely to work with, and was very helpful as our day-of-coordinator! During the wedding day she was making sure there was communication between all the prep areas, making sure everything was on schedule, and playing the right music at the right times! (We only had a live band during the dancing, and only playing songs from an ipod for the rest of the events.)
Mary Beth was a pleasure to work with. She is very professional and certainly knows her flowers! She showed up just at the right time and delivered beautiful flowers that lasted for quite some time after the wedding. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
I have had the opportunity to enjoy Eats Creative Cuisine on multiple occasions. Whether it is a catered wedding or a little picnic dinner, it has been incredible EVERY SINGLE TIME.
There is a time in a woman's life that is the most important day she will experience. A time that she daydreams of her entire life. On September 6th, 2015 Amanda and I both had the most important day of our lives! But every bride knows that it is a whirlwind to actually get to the day of the wedding with all the planning, collecting, and projects it takes to actually pull of the day. Six months before our wedding a perfect gem came into our lives offering to be a day of coordinator for our wedding for learning experience to build her business in the best way possible. Of course we jumped on the offer and met with Vanessa the next week. We had an instant connection with Vanessa and right away she became family to us. She expressed to us right away what she was going to do for us and we all started to plan that night. The first thing that caught my attention was her immediate organizational skills. She wrote down everything we talked about right away and threw in amazing ideas. When Vanessa left that first night Amanda and I felt like we struck gold! As weeks went on Vanessa kept in close contact with us, always asking how we were doing and asking what she could do to help us. Vanessa came out to our house to work on projects with us, to continue planning, and to figure out our venue prospects. When we finally decided on a venue Vanessa was right by our side meeting with the venue managers and coordinators. She asked every question that we didn't think of and she made sure that we got the best deal possible. As the day came closer Vanessa was a constant support system for us and kept us cool and collected as the stress of a wedding came closer. As most wedding do we had a few hiccups with our venue and Vanessa took charge and fixed all the little speed bumps that came our way. At our rehearsal Vanessa came ready to shine with her impeccable organization. She knew what she was doing and kept explaining how the day was going to go to our wedding party. When we left that day we knew exactly how to walk down the isle, where to stand, how to walk out, and had a plan how the rest of the wedding would go. Needless to say we all felt comfortable and ready for the actual event. Of course when Amanda and I went to bed that night we were so ready for our beautiful outdoor dreamy wedding. When we woke up the next morning it was down pouring. As a bride panic set in knowing that our outdoor wedding could become disastrous. Not even a minute later I got a call from Vanessa calming my nervous and telling me she has a plan. Instantly I knew the day was would be perfect. When my side of the bridal party and I showed up to help set up there were beautiful white tents up to cover our guests and us during the wedding. Vanessa made magic happen to make sure our day went perfect. She directed everyone what still needed to be done and we got all decorations and tables set up in a fashionable time! When we all went to take pictures Vanessa stayed and continued to make our venue perfect. When we arrived it was like a fairytale, she put her beautiful touches on everything. When the wedding started she gathered the wedding party and since it was raining we had to change quickly where we were going to stand and Vanessa took charge and quickly made a decision for us. As we started walking down the isle the rain stopped and the sun came out and all I could do is smile because I knew Vanessa must have pulled some strings with the rain Gods because only she could pull off something like that! Needless to say the wedding went perfectly and the reason I know that is because Vanessa was running her butt off to make sure very thing was perfect and even if there problems she didn't let us know about any of them she just took care of it herself. As the night came to an end and we were getting ready for our exit and Vanessa was still in great spirits and ready to make sure the last few minutes were perfect!! As we got into our truck and drove away we noticed that Vanessa had placed all of our gifts and cards into our truck for us to enjoy that night! Vanessa stayed and cleaned the venue and that night dropped off all of our decor and supplies to our house so that we didn't have to worry about anything. Our over all experience with Vanessa was beyond amazing. Not only was she our day of wedding coordinator but now she is and will forever be Auntie Vanessa to our sweet babies!! If you are looking for a dedicated, organized, passionate, loving, creative day of coordinator for your wedding Vanessa Humphrey is the woman for you. She will blow your exceptions out of this world! Vanessa thank you so much for your support and love for weddings because we wouldn't have been able to do half of what we did without you!! We love you to the moon and back!!
Nataliya is hands down the best wedding planner a bride could ask for!!! She is extremely detail oriented and will make the best day of your life even better than you could imagine. She will help no matter how big or small the request is. From helping me find the perfect venue to cake to flowers she does it all. On the day of the wedding she made sure all the vendors knew where/what to do without me having to talk to anyone and just focus on being the bride. The venue looked perfect because she listened to everything I wanted and made it magically appear. My bridesmaids loved how kind and respectful she was when helping them find their places for the ceremony and herding them for the never ending photos I wanted. There is hands down no better wedding (or any other event) planner in Portland!!! I can’t wait to have another event that I can hire her to help me cause I know she will go above and beyond my expectations and make the day unforgettable.
I hired Liz as a Day-of-Coordinator for my summer wedding, and so far she has been a dream to work with. She is everything I am not, which is exactly why I hired her. She is super organized and full of energy.... total Type A personality. I've had one meeting with her (per the "This is It" package) and she blew me away with her wedding know-how and decor ideas. You can really tell she is a pro at what she does. It definitely takes a certain personality to do what she does, and she's got it. She has a "take charge" attitude that leaves me feeling relieved and at peace. It is really nice to know that all the little details on the day-of will be taken care of. Yes, Day-of-Coordinators are expensive, but if you shop around, you'll find that Soleil Bliss is one of the more reasonable packages around town (or out-of-town.... she's traveling 2.5 hours for my wedding). Do yourself a favor and buy yourself some peace of mind!! It will be worth every penny! At least I hope it will. Seeing as my wedding is still 3 months away, I'm not really in any position to evaluate her performance/services during an actual wedding. But I've been so impressed with her so far, I just had to write a review. I'll update this after the big event!!
Vanessa was a wonderful event planner for my daughters first birthday! It wasn't a typical birthday it was one that any girl dreams of! It was a princess ball! It was so entertaining for the kids and the adults!! The invitations she created were so amazing and could never buy any that came close to hers! I will definetly be using her for my next event!
Cherlyn was a pro in helping us navigate the daunting wedding planning process. She worked with us to identify the steps involved and a timeline, create a vision for the day that reflected our values and priorities, and helped us identify ways to stretch our limited budget. She is knowledgeable about local vendors, helped us research and cost compare and took care of every last detail on the day of the wedding. Every couple needs someone like Cherlyn to help them stay sane while planning a wedding! - Meghan and Scott, NE Portland.
Missi was in charge of my entire wedding ceremony and reception. We weren't sure how everything was going to tie together or even if a few of my ideas would work at all, but because of how prepared missi was and because she has such an amazing talent for turning simple things into something truly magical, everything I hoped for became a reality. I was able to relax all day and just enjoy each moment as it passed, all thanks to her. If I could do it over again I would have hired missi sooner so we could have her creativity and fun loving personality for a little bit longer. We LOVE Missi!!!
