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 was fantastic, we had an aviation event and she accommodated us with airplane art. Wonderful personality and would highly recommend her for any event. Great job Liz! :-) Loved the plane you did for me :--)
My daughter who turned 4 was amazed to have the snow queen face painting at her party! The dress was beautiful and the queen was great at interacting with the kids. I recommend Dragon Theater for your next event!
Nicole is knowledgable, proactive, extremely creative, no pressure, open to feedback and opinions, and provides options. Nicole's wonderful personality makes any planning and the event a joy!
Daylee was amazing to work with. She knew her stuff well, from catering to layout design, while helping us to plan our school prom. When we got to decoration planning, she brought in boards with photos and provided many ideas that would fit with our theme. These examples and ideas really gave us a better picture of what we wanted for our prom, and she was super willing to go with our thoughts and create one of the best proms we've ever had. On the day of, she came early and brought all of the decorations in her truck, helped us set up, and even stayed the whole event to make sure everything went well. Her dedication and commitment to making the event the best was outstanding, and we really appreciated it. Daylee is easy to talk to, fun to work with, and always on top of everything; she is probably one of the best in the event planning industry. We can't thank her enough for her services and hope to work with her in the future.

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.
Working with Ann has been great, she is very creative and flexible. Her floral designs are so unique and she's always will to go that extra step to make customers happy!
McKenzie, the owner of Flowers by McKenzie will go out of her way to get the flowers you want (even if they are out of season). She will work with you until you are happy which is why I give her a 5 star rating. Most florists may tell you know to certain flowers but McKenzie will find a way!
I highly recommend Melissa Rubin for her party planning services. She put together a fabulous graduation party for my son for which we received many compliments. Not being a party planning person myself, I appreciated Melissas fresh ideas, attention to detail and take charge attitude. She was very willing to do as much or as little as I needed help with. She has many contacts in the business and her coordination was instrumental to a well-run event. I would not hesitate to work with her again.
We highly recommend Soleil Bliss Event Productions! Liz is very professional, dedicated and passionate in her work and it shows! It is our pleasure to do business with her any chance we get!
Cheryl has been a terrific addition to our Strollathon event. She has a great attitude and is very dependable. She's creative and her balloon creations are beautiful. I've been using her for 6 years now and look forward to many more. I love how I can describe my idea and she comes up with a design that exceeds my expectations. I would definitely recommend Bouquets & Balloons for any event where balloons are needed.
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.
While I haven't had Angel plan an event for me yet, I can attest that no one will work harder to be sure your event is a success. You have never met a woman with more energy than Angel!
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!
Devon has such fantastic taste & beautiful attention to detail. Devon is caring & passionate and you can see this in her events and feel this in meetings with her. Rest assured you will be taken great care of when working with Devon.
We make dreams come true with thought, love and understanding the true art of a good celebration, making life's blessings amazing and fun.
Northwest Facility Services began servicing commercial businesses and properties managers to cater to the various needs of the client. The entertainment department will become a separate entity in 2016 but until the logistics of securing the perfect team to carry out wishes that revolve around a special occasion, we can offer suggestions that allow your mind to be put at ease while we take each opportunity and transform it into an awe inspiring event you deserve. No budget too big or small. Our years of experience networking with local businesses, fellow colleagues and vendors has been exponential in building a strong rapport and trust that simply cannot be matched with. We realize that you would be taking a chance on a brand new department and therefore a new company(although the years of experience are not new it is important to us that you are happy with the decision you make to hire our department does not prompt uncertainty. Our goal is to gain your trust with the hope we may earn business through word of mouth. One thing you may take for granted is that our attentive staff will pay close attention to your needs no matter how elaborate the request we will never fail to give you and your guests the highest level of service and professionalism that decades of hands on experience wii ensure. To show our appreciation for trusting in our dedicated team while we get ready to announce our grand opening to the public we will be offering a substantial discount if you book your event in 2015 regardless of your event date. Some restrictions may apply. As the director of operations for this department, I will be the main point of contact.Id be happy to answer any questions or Alleviate your concerns. My personal experience planning parties, weddings and events..any size, theme or venue and many times last minute has given me the knowledge to anticipate, troubleshoot, reconcile and avoid potential disasterous scenarios. There is no problem too small that i would take for granted or too big that I cannot handle. Whatever you need, I will make it happen. I aquired this experience not only through my passion for entertaining but through my work as an on-air talent for a radio station in the Midwest where i took requests, promoted events, contest giveaways at the station on air and during live events. I was given an exciting opportunity to further my career when i was promoted to write and produce commercials for local businesses. As a professional voice over artist i was the voice behind anything from commercials to audibooks . My talent and passion for entertaining has instilled the natural ability to put guests of all ages at ease. Knowing your venue and age group i can anticipate ahead of time the music, activities, and level of appropriateness by adhering to your instructions. If You are looking for a D J our library consists of over 100,000 songs and growing .Of course licensed DJs have the ability to stream unlimited content if requests are desired. A stable wi fi connection would need to be available and since we realize that cannot always be a reliable source for music content it is important to have a large library and your personal playlist with must have songs will be discussed and added prior to your event. If a planner is desired then the initial meeting will be consist of questions, brainstorming and most of all fun. I say that because planning the event does not have to be stressful ..i know easier said than done ;) but moments leading up to the event can be some of the most memorable times. You can be as involved as much or little as you want. Our staff will be what you need. You really only have to show up if you desire. Besides the planning there is the "not as fun" part but that is where you need not worry. Financial, administrative and record keeping is vital to the overall success. Finding the right vendors while staying within your budget codes... planning your wedding or event involves so many aspects and unexpected variables the delicate mediation as the liason between vendors, the clients and guests on day of event requires someone that can handle situations with finesse. Unwanted guests that are invited out of obligation i have heard some stories from brides during planning about the obligatory guest list that includes exes, and the guest they bring along . To avoid risking insults or going off on a tangent i will end it there. My earlier point was what started out as anger or disappointment ended up in laughter. That is part of what i mean about fun planning. However my easy going nature and often times silly sense of humor is all it may take to break the ice with these guests. I listen and observe whether I am there in the shadows or playing your music there will be no awkward silences or guests unsure of what or where to go. Thinking outside the box is a talent that has come in handy. If you prefer something less traditional and more eccentric this applies to your event planning, activities to be included, and a plethora of innovative ideas . Your guests will remember your event. I am able to apply these talents as your planner ,mc, or dj. The main thing you need to know is that i am a devoted employee that holds my ethics in the highest regard. As the client you ultimately call all the shots as i am there only to execute accordingly. On the other hand that can be stressful during the event if the client does not have 100 percent trust in us. We have state of the art dj mixing boards, sound equipment, microphones, fog machines and lights. I can assist in making sure your schedule during the event is on time with announcements. Either way, you will not regret hiring us for planning your event from square one or if you are in need of only an MC or DJ, my easy to fill out questionairres will ensure the right music will be filling the room. As an added service at no charge and upon request have the ability to capture great candid video and stills throughout the evening . We can make it known or be stealthy whatever you wish. Although my personal favorite is the candit shots , especially when guests do not know there is a camera pointed at them. I will take a few short weeks to turn the footage into a professionally editied DVD where i guarantee laughter and tears. The time and effort involved in creating such a visual most find the modest fee to be a small price to pay for memories that cannot be recreated but it is not mandatory and is not intended to take the place of a photographer you may already have but rather compliments like the sprinkles on your sundae. . The bottom line is, I'm there to serve you. There is no need to stress on your big day. Our DJs do more than just play the music. Our planners go above and beyond to find best kept secrets for the perfect venue. I could keep talking because this is simply my passion. When you do what you love then everyone involved will reap the joyous benefits of a happy occasion. My goal is to ensure your event goes off without a hitch. Except the bride and groom of course ;) Dont hesitate. Please message me to take advantage of our 2015 pregrand opening specials. I look forward to making your special day one for the ages.
I am currently an event planner for a local country club, but I'm looking forward to creating my own event planning business. I have experience within the industry, and I have relationships with many event industry professionals, such as DJs, florists, venues, etc. I'd love to help you create your special day!
I go above and beyond my customer's expectations.
