Jerry crane and his professional crew catered my daughter's wedding reception with over 300 guests last week. Wow! Amazing! The chicken, pulled pork, cornbread, baked beans, salads, drinks, were not only delicious but we're all the right temperature even on a 95 degree day! All of the guests commented on the food and asked for his information! He will definitely do my next daughter's wedding!
Julie was professional and very organized. She made the "bar" area of our daughter's wedding reception look fantastic, especially the way she organized the wine and glasses on the table. Our guests were very pleased with her service. She was very flexible, and and accommodating when the schedule of events changed. I would highly recommend Julie to be you bartender!!!
It's Party Time really exceeded my expectations at our wedding reception. They went out of their way to help make it a success for which we will be forever grateful.
My wife and I knew from the start that we couldn't plan a wedding for 100 guests by ourselves. After reviewing a couple event planners, we found Morgan. It was clear from the beginning that her personality was a nice match for ours, so we hired her for the full wedding package. She anticipated our needs and understood the level of effort we wanted to put into the big day (ie not much; we're fairly lazy, but we still wanted to throw a beautiful wedding). Morgan took our aesthetic, goals and budget into account at every turn, and was awesome at laying out each choice and presenting our options. She gently prompted us to complete tasks to stick to our timeline, but it never felt like a chore. She also connected us to amazing vendors. On the surface, she was so cool, calm and collected, she made it look easy. But make no mistake, Morgan worked her tail off, and in the end, everything came together beautifully with no drama. I can't recommend her enough!
This review is coming from a ‘Type A Bride’...Up until a few months before the wedding I really wanted to do it all myself. Then the realization dawned on me. I don’t have super teleportation powers and I can’t be in two places at once. Damn. My husband and I came to the conclusion that we were spending too much time/money/effort on this party to not be present and enjoy the day. This is where Don’t Mess with the Bride comes in. Right from the start Will’s calm and confident demeanor assured me that our big day was in good hands. He impressed me with his initiative in taking care of a parking issue we had right off the bat. One thing I hadn’t thought of was needing help with the rehearsal, but having Will there as a voice of experience went a long way to calm my first time friend officiant. One awesome thing was how Will started off the rehearsal – He got everyone to put his number in their phone. From that point he took the weight off my shoulders as point of contact. Letting go of that burden was the best way to start my wedding weekend. A major benefit of Don’t Mess with the Bride’s day of package is the team approach. Will was running things from the ceremony location and Daniel was back at the reception site making sure my guests got on the shuttle alright and that my décor ideas were executed even better than I’d hoped. Being a designer myself it was hard to not be the one decorating for my reception. I appreciated that Daniel had the eye for detail and was able to make the right decisions in my absence. We’re back from the honeymoon now and still basking in the memories of our wedding day. Our families have remarked how nice it was to just relax and be guests (rather than worker bees). Thanks to Will and team for allowing us to focus on the truly important things that day.
June was awesome! She helped us design all of our flower arrangements because we were pretty clueless as to what we wanted/what would look good. She also gave us advice on how the timeline should look for the wedding day because again we weren't sure what would be best. She worked on a tight schedule the day of the event, decorating both the church and the reception venue and she also let us keep whichever arrangements we wanted following the reception. She even brought the arrangements over the next day because they were loaded into her van by mistake along with some of our decorations. We would highly recommend her!
Joslyn catered a wedding for a friend of ours. She was punctual and professional with a calming warm presence amidst the hectic festivities . The food was outstanding! She was confined by a restrictive budget yet the food excelled our expectations. She worked tirelessly throughout the ceremony and reception to make sure everything went smoothly. The food presentation was beautiful and appetizing. We can't think how we would improve our experience with her service. We recommend you to experience her food catering service yourself!
· ---WEDDING MAGIC---- I will never use another caterer as long as I live. They elevated my rehearsal dinner to a level of intimacy and class I didn't know existed. They opened their restaurant doors to for an exclusive meal for my close friends, and family then proceeded to wait on us like we were royalty. Then when they catered my wedding reception, they somehow managed to exceed all expectations(which were high after the amazing dinner) then presented a feast to our extended family and friends(well over 100 people) that once again expressed their elegance and class. Thank you Diversity Cafe, Tonya and Carrie for helping make our wedding day EPIC!!!
Appetite for reception does amazing work👍👍.Goes above and beyond what you expect.

On Christmas Day 1998, my husband proposed to me! I was thrilled beyond imagination.... then reality struck! My husband had never been married (we were both in our forty's) and wanted to have the BIG Church wedding, with a guest list of 400+ and he wanted to do it April 4th! I was completely lost and overwhelmed with the planning! Then we were invited to a Valentine Day party at a friends home.....when we walked into their home I was completely transfixed by the beautiful and unique flower displays, table scapes, and candle displays that turned their home into one of the most beautiful and romantic spaces I had ever seen. The next day I called Marianna Love from Absolutely Beautiful who had been responsible for my friends homes Valentine transformation. I met with Marianna that week and we discussed my dilemma... A wedding that was just a few weeks away, and my desperation in getting it all pulled together. There are no words to fully express my appreciation and gratitude to Marianna! With little clear direction from the frazzled bride to be, Marianna put together and executed a plan that to this day people still refer to as the most beautiful wedding they have ever attended. The flowers, the silk draping , the table settings, candle displays and menu to name a few, were all beyond imagination with beauty, romance and originality. Marianna transformed the church and the reception venue into an unimaginable place of pure bliss. Guests described it as a "very swish affair"....."something out of a magazine"...."looks like a made for TV wedding straight from Hollywood." All of the ideas were the product of Marianna's imagination and incredible talent and she executed her plan flawlessly! Over the years Marianna has planned and executed Christmas parties including decorating our home and has continued to prove herself over and over again as one of the most creative and original party planners I've ever encountered. She's not only a tremendously talented woman, she is great fun! One of the nicest people I know!
Kara was incredible to work with. She helped with my flowers and decorations and coordinating my wedding and it was just lovely. She really took the stress off of me and I appreciated her so much. She was really fantastic! Thank you, Kara!! Katie & Ron
Naj is so amazing and sweet!! She has been helping me plan my wedding for a few months now. She has helped me with so much by finding amazing vendors. Najla is fast and efficient at responding to emails and text messages. She put together a checklist for me and walks me through each task and the best steps to complete them. Planning a wedding is stressful as it is, Najla puts 101% into the wedding therefore I haven't felt stressed throughout the planning. Not only is she great with cordinating the wedding but she gives me unique tips such as my head table, my flowers, and she also does calligraphy!! She is worth every penny!! I recommend her for any couple!
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!!
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!!
Hayden was an absolute LIFE SAVER during the whole planning of my wedding and bridal shower!! My engagement was 6 months of almost constant stress. She was always there to help me get through each important decision when it came to the wedding. Whenever I didn't know what to do, she would quickly help me find a solution. She even made my wedding cake and cupcakes (& they were DELICIOUS)! She did a ton of research and made me the cake of my dreams! Everyone thought we had a professional wedding cake maker design and make our cake. She also planned my entire bridal shower which was only a few days before the wedding. Every detail from food, drinks, decoration, and games was thoroughly planned out. She made all the decorations and food herself. There were pictures of all my loved ones and friends with me all around the shower, which warmed my heart. She made the event fun, sentimental, and comfortable for not only my young friends but also my family and soon-to-be in-laws. Everyone loved my bridal shower and had a ton of fun! I would DEFINITELY recommend Hayden as an event planner!
Abby did an awesome job of guiding me through the craziness of wedding planning! From helping with my wedding budget to decorating the day before, Abby really gave me peace of mind before my big day. She took time to go through exactly what my fiancé and I wanted to happen on our wedding day. And on my wedding day, she was there to make sure everything went smoothly and was on time. I know things could have been extremely stressful, but she had everything covered, so I could enjoy my wedding day and take in everything. Thank you so much for making my wedding day special & stress free :)
Regan and I cannot thank you enough for all you did to ensure that her wedding was all that she hoped it would be. From the first, when we wanted a simple ceremony with just a few guests followed by cake and champagne with the residents, to the final day, when we had 45 people for the ceremony in the garden, followed by lunch in the Sullivan Theater and then cake and champagne with the residents in the Hemingway Room, you were amazing. Every time we needed help (Referrals for bakeries? Photographers? Hair stylists?), every time we had questions (Can we have flowers delivered to you? Can we add something to the buffet for the kids? Can we play a DVD slideshow at the reception? ), your response was always no problem, we can do that. The lunch buffet was delicious and plentiful (SO glad we didnt cut the whipped potatoes with basil!), the servers were professional, and the transition from one location to the next seamless. And the little touches were so thoughtful (everyone loved the eat, drink and be married sign outside the reception!). You made the wedding so easy and so much fun, Melissa. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Working with Debra on our wedding was an absolute dream. She has an uncanny ability to take an idea for a "look" and make it reality. I sent her ideas for what I wanted our dinner tables to look like and she found the perfect fabric, table settings and decor to perfectly fit the style and feel of our wedding. She even went out on her own and picked wildflowers to accent the decor! She is very professional and responded quickly to every email I sent. She relieved me of so much stress on the days leading up to the wedding and the wedding day itself, I was able to fully enjoy myself, knowing that she had everything under control and looking amazing! I highly recommend working with Deb to make your special day as perfect as it can be!
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!!!
