Julie did a great job at our corporate event. She's very friendly, social and outgoing. Thank you for being so kind and helpful!
I hired it's party time/it's BBQ time for my company's summer picnic. When I initially talked to Viki she was very professional, insured me that she would take care of everything, sent me multiple options for my event with quotes to match. I was super excited because this is the first time I have planned something like this on my own and it sounded like they were a one stop shop! As it got closer to the event communication with Viki was a bit of a struggle. There were multiple problems with the liability insurance needed (the event was taking place at a public park). I would send Viki emails and not get a response. I would call and talk to someone other than Viki who wouldn't relay my messages on. I ended up having to coordinate with her contact at Farmers insurance in order to get everything that was needed on the insurance end. I planned the whole event but was actually unable to make it. I was told by MANY of my coworkers that the food was some of the best they've had, and that the staff that was there serving and bartending was super friendly and professional. In the end I would definitely consider working with Viki and It's Party Time Catering again. If I had any advice for them I would say - please work on your communication! I know juggling multiple events is tough, but please follow through with any questions or requests that come your way.
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!)
I hired Rebecca & her team at Parties and Events NW to plan and coordinate my parent's 60th anniversary party. She was always on time, personable, listened to what we wanted and presented lots of ideas. Rebecca kept promises, showed up on time, followed through and did an excellent job negotiating with vendors. VERY pleased, would highly recommend.

You can count on Shoshana for brilliant work from start to finish. She has assisted our non profit in a number of events, including a golf marathon, gala fundraiser and evening lecture events. Her attention to detail, planning and implementation skills are superior. I highly recommend Shoshana for event planning, project coordination and fundraising.
Autumn is a seriously amazing person to have plan your wedding. She puts so much effort and time into making sure your day is special!
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!
Antje is an extraordinary human wing in all ways and the events she produces reflect this truth in spades. There are always Spaces for relaxing, connecting and of course interacting through movement and beautifully curated music. I could not recommend more highly having Antje involved in any creative project from hosting dance events, to larger event production (including wedding planning!).
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 one the most meticulous, organized people I've ever worked with! She's great at weighing options, telling you the positives and negatives of each choice, and then planning for any potential challenges after the decision is made. She thinks of details that you didn't even consider and is always two to three steps ahead of you! I would recommend Nataliya in a heartbeat to anyone needing an event planner.
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.
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.
I hired Brook with Current Productions to DJ my brothers wedding a couple of years ago. He did an outstanding job getting people on the dance floor to shake their grove thing. Overall, he is professional, reliable and most of all just a great individual.
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!
Wow. Autumn Rose is a real find. I'm in my late 50s and became a widower 2 years ago. When I started working with Autumn a year ago, I was burdened by the physical and emotional weight of so much stuff. I wanted to get down to things that were just mine, rather than the accumulated detritus of my parents, kids, brother and late wife. Autumn helped me identify strategies for organizing the things I wanted to keep and helped me sell or get rid of the rest. These strategies were an excellent balance of the emotional and practical. She works very hard, always with an eye toward keeping her services at a high value. While my friends might point in amazement to the fact that I can now get my car in the garage, I think the greatest results lie in developing new skills and the ability to make positive changes in my life. I continue to work with her, as should you.
I'm here to take the stress out of planning your event. From weddings to baby showers, I'm here to do it all. I help make your Pinterest boards a reality!
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 go above and beyond my customer's expectations.
