Late summer/early fall wedding at Deepwood Estate in Salem. Jerry and his team did a fantastic job on the wedding! Highly recommended!
Julie tended bar for our wedding, at a rural farm venue. So friendly and professional! She was excellent at providing exactly what we needed, which changed a few times leading up to our wedding. She offered creative cocktail recipe ideas beforehand, which we were unfortunately not able take advantage of due to our budget. She did a great job of serving tasty drinks with the minimal ingredients we provided. Serving our 120 guests was a breeze for her; I know she could easily tackle more people or a more complicated drink menu. My wedding coordinator, a self-proclaimed "stickler", said she was impressed. I could tell Julie is a seasoned bartender.
Kurt Hunter was the perfect DJ and MC for our wedding day. Kurt is organized, easy to work with, and polite! I highly recommend him for any wedding or special event. He made planning my wedding day music fun and easy, and the dance floor was packed all night! He has a wide variety of music but provides tools to help you plan and not get overwhelmed. He was flexible with timing and set up, and understands the right flow for a reception. Nothing could have been better, Kurt was a huge part of why my wedding was a huge success and a ton of fun! Thank you!!
June played a huge role in our wedding decor, and did a phenomenal job at designing all of our floral pieces! She assembled beautiful bouquets for my bridesmaids, and handsome boutonnieres for the groomsmen. I have known June for a number of years, and admire her trustworthy and honest character, she really loves her job, and it shows! When it came time for a consultation meeting, she was very flexible, and worked around our schedule. As soon as we sat down, and shared our ideas with her, we really felt that she understood our vision. She made it fun and gave helpful advice, and quickly caught on to our theme. She was all in, and VERY attentive, which made us even more excited! We didn't feel rushed at all during our meeting with her, she answered all of our questions, and made us feel very comfortable with leaving this task in her hands, we had no concerns! She quoted my husband and I a fair and affordable price, and even helped us save money, how awesome is THAT?! After our meeting, she got to work quickly! My husband and I paid for a wedding coordinator as one of our vendors, but honestly felt that June played that "role" more efficiently. Although she wasn't technically our coordinator, we felt that she went above and beyond her job description. This lady is literally someone you want on your team when it comes to planning for your big day. June was in frequent communication with us, and made us feel as if we were her only customers. When the big day finally arrived, June was right on time, and brought a team of associates to set up all of the decor and flower arrangements we discussed. I knew she was going to take care of everything, and it was a HUGE relief to know that she knew exactly what she was doing. The moment I walked down the aisle, I was amazed, everything was perfect! I think one of my favorite designs of hers was the arbor. The backdrop at the alter was made up of beautifully strung flowers, which hung from the top of the arbor to the ground, it was GORGEOUS!!! It was better than what I had imagined! June helped create a dream land for us on our special day and we loved it! The reception area was amazing, she designed beautiful centerpieces made of birch wood vases. And provided fruit wood table top slabs for our head table. It was more than we could have hoped for! Hands down, June is one of the BEST! We hosted about 150 guests, and had a short engagement of only 4 1/2 months, June was able to accomplish everything we wanted and more within that time! We were very happy with her work, and honestly don't know what we would have done without her! We loved working with June, and highly recommend her services, she made our dream wedding come true! -J & C (Happy Bride and Groom!)
Trevor did a SUPERB job hosting our wedding! We asked for a specific vibe of music to go with our Sunday afternoon cocktail reception and dinner. He asked a lot of questions, was open to playing new and different songs we requested, and captured the vibe we were going for beautifully. He also provided announcements throughout our wedding day to keep the day moving smoothly and our guests informed of what was happening next. We loved working with Trevor and would hire him again!
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.
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!
Emee coordinated my wedding back in July and I was beyond impressed with the level of service she and her team provided on my special day. She is so easy to work with and her attention to detail is what made the event as wonderful as it was. I loved that she took over all vendor contact and delivered my props to the venue. Quite the load off for a busy bride. I can't thank her enough for her all of her hard work; I'd recommend her to anyone.
Paul officiated our wedding in 2006. He was gracious and well spoken, making both my husband and I feel calm and confident about saying our vows. He did a great job.
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.
Scott DJ'd at our wedding about a week and a half ago & did an awesome job! He was able to integrate the songs we asked him to play with a nice variety of other music as well as the requests that our guests made. He honored our request to keep our special event very low key & family oriented. He is also very affordable. We would DEFINITELY recommend Scott to anyone looking for a DJ for any special 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%
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.
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.
We worked with the awesome duo from Parties and Events NW for our wedding, and it was an absolute dream. Rebecca was our wedding decorator, and Erin was our day of coordinator, and our wedding could not have gone more smoothly without the help of these two amazing ladies. When I first spoke with Rebecca, she communicated every detail about our wedding vision that ensured that no area of planning would go unnoticed. She is kind, patient, and oh so creative! We visited our venue together, and Rebecca gave excellent tips and ideas that helped create an aesthetic look that perfectly matched the goals we had previously discussed. We also used their decorations, which was both cost and time effective that greatly reduced wedding planning stress. You will absolutely be satisfied with how your venue will look, as it will exceed your expectations! Erin was likewise a gem to work with as our wedding day coordinator. There is absolutely NOOO way that our wedding could have gone as smoothly without her amazing help. She kept us calm and relaxed, and was flexible to any changes that ensured our day went according to plan (and that we eat and stay hydrated!). In the weeks leading up to our wedding, Erin kindly talked us through all the final details (and spoke all our other vendors) that helped minimize stress and any concerns we had. She is incredibly detail oriented, and gave attention to all parts of our wedding that allowed my husband and I to focus on what mattered most-- marrying each other! Both ladies communicate incredibly well and in a timely manner that will leave you feeling assured that your wedding day will look and go just as you envision. We received so many compliments about how beautiful our venue looked, and how fun our wedding was- all thanks to the expertise of this duo. I highly recommend Parties and Events NW to help plan and decorate your event. Thank you, Rebecca and Erin, so much. We are forever grateful, and hope to work with you again in the future! xoxo, the Kochs
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.
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!
