My fiance and I went on thumbtack, looking for a personal chef to do our wedding. Of all the chefs who responded to us we were immediately impressed with how professional and thorough Tony was. Whereas others who contacted us simply gave us a price range based on our number of guests, Tony supplied us with some examples of menus from previous clients, but also assured us that what he would prepare for us would be specifically customized to meet our needs. He came to our home for an initial consultation, and we immediately hit it off. He was personable and professional. We discussed the menu as well as the logistics; including a tent, tables and chairs, dinnerware, and decorative flowers. We were relieved when he told us that he would take care of all of those things if we wanted, and he did, except for the flowers. (Although he did supply flowers for the tables and even offered to find someone to perform the ceremony) The affair was to be an intimate dinner with seventeen guests and we planned to have our wedding at home in the garden. We decided where the food would be prepared as well as the dining and serving tables. The menu we agreed upon was eclectic, with an international theme. It would consist of a five course dinner with a wine pairing with each course, and a cocktail hour before the first course. From the start, we loved how it sounded and we were eagerly anticipating seeing and tasting everything. Incidentally, he also made another trip to our home weeks later when we were having second thoughts about how to set everything up. The day of the wedding Tony and his staff arrived promptly. The rental tables, chairs and dinnerware had arrived the previous afternoon. After the ceremony and some photo taking was the cocktail hour. The hors d'oeuvres were all delicious and beautifully presented, and so were each of the five courses to follow. The staff was professional and courteous and their appearances were tasteful. The table settings were elegant, and exactly what we had wanted. The quality and freshness of the food was outstanding. The third course, grilled Pacific salmon and pan seared Chilean sea bass, drizzled with a strawberry citrus sauce was one of the most delicious dishes I ever had in my fife, and the salmon was grilled absolutely perfectly. If I had to find something less than desirable, I would say that there was one server who most guests agreed was not very friendly but she may have just been nervous. As for the food, there was an Australian grilled boneless leg of lamb which was a little overcooked for my wife and my tastes, but our guests had no complaints. However in all honesty, to find negative aspects of the entire experience I'm reaching somewhat, as the overall experience was simply amazing and all the things we loved about it far outweigh the aforementioned mild disappointments. It exceeded our already hopeful expectations. Furthermore, the price was definitely reasonable. When one of our guests inquired about the cost per plate (not including rentals) he was astounded that it did not cost much more. Finally, all of our guests raved about the day to no end and many of them said it was the most elegant wedding they had ever attended. I'm quite certain some of them will be contacting Tony for an event of their own.
Shonta was the Wedding Planner and Florist for my daughters' wedding and she did an amazing job. She has great creativity and is wonderful to work with. She has also worked on other big events with us and can be counted to execute and deliver.
Exceeded my expectations! Winter Wonderland Candy table was amazing!!! Very professional and punctual. Would recommend Starkey Party Planning. Will definitely use them again.
We hired Denise as our day of coordinator, and we are so thankful that we did! We stayed in touch leading up to the big day, including meeting with the staff of the venue weeks beforehand to see the space and confirm the layout of decorations, etc. She handled everything on the day of the wedding so we could just relax and enjoy being with our friends and family. What small issues did come up she handled on the fly and with minimal intrusion. It is definitely worth hiring Brilliant Affairs to manage your event; their support beforehand and on the day of cannot be over-emphasized. We highly recommend their services!
Angela was incredible! She exactly captured what we wanted for our wedding flowers and really helped to make our wedding special! The flower arrangements were beautiful and Angela even put name tags on each of the bouquets to make all of the members of our wedding party feel special :)
Ms Myrna is like my guardian angel from above she is keeping me calm and helping us with great ideas for our wedding in July and also making sure we are getting our money worth yes i would use her services again. and I do recommend her to others as well.
I was looking for planners for my sister who is Orthodox Jewish and had very specific requirements around that, so we weren't able to hire Katie, but I wanted to note that she was the CONSUMMATE professional. She was very generous with her time and completely understanding and respectful of her needs. I could not have asked for a nicer interaction with someone I couldn't hire and had the circumstances been any different, I would have hired her in an instant. Where some wedding planners will be rude to you once they discover they don't meet your needs (I have interviewed several, between my own wedding and my sister's) Katie was kind and accommodating. I imagine it would be an absolute pleasure to work with her - and I got this read just off of our first interaction! I highly recommend her.
I love how Stephanie and her team took my design and vision and executed it wonderfully. And she also injected her ideas which worked well with my design. They set it all up and broke it down which proved to be a lifesaver. I am such a Type A, "need to control" everything kind of person who does party planning myself, but I felt comfortable releasing the reins to Stephanie on my wedding day. She even came to my rehearsal and helped with ideas. She even spruced up the bathroom for guests which was a nice touch. I would definitely recommend Everything is an Event and I would definitely use their services again. The only thing I would say is that the flow of events were a little off. There were a few people in the wedding party that felt that Stephanie could have been a little more hands on with controlling certain things instead of just responding to issues. Also, when the items such as linens, centerpieces, candles, etc. were broken down, they were just placed in any of the storage containers instead of the way they came to the venue. The only issue with that is re-packing everything for storage. But it is a minor thing. Overall, like I said, it was great working with Stephanie and her team and I would definitely use their services again. THANKS STEPHANIE AND EVERYTHING IS AN EVENT!!!
We were celebrating our wedding anniversary. I loved that Ronda got back to me right away, was able to adjust the menu to our liking and accommodate a fairly short turn around. She and Maurice were right on time, the meal was delicious and served with a wonderful attitude. All in all, we couldn't have been more pleased.
Wedding Fairytales came thru in our time or need. Our original decorator canceled three weeks before our wedding. Terri and her crew help us setting up and a fantastic price hundreds of dollars less the original decorator. Thanks Terri for make our wedding day a dream come true!!
Testimonial for Rachael Before I met Rachael, I was entirely unaware of how impactful and life-changing a wedding planner could be. Perhaps it is because Rachael is 1000 times more than simply a “wedding planner.” With over 10 years of experience in the field, Rachael essentially eliminated approximately 99% of the stress that goes into planning a wedding by taking one multiple roles: a liaison between our vendors, a magician with saving us money, a therapist when I needed someone to talk to, a genie by making my dream wedding a reality, and, most importantly, a true friend and unyielding cheerleader for us. The only bad thing about getting married has been not having a reason to talk to Rachael nearly everyday, since she WILL be there for you EVERY day, day or night, and is probably the most punctual and giving person I have ever met. However, her value does not end with simply being nice. She is incredibly smart and meticulous, knowing the details of our wedding even better than my fiancé or I did, and making sure that our vision for what we wanted was realized. She is undoubtedly the Olivia Pope of wedding planners which, for everyone who hasn’t seen Scandal, means that she could work on a presidential level of wedding planning, can organize your life better than anyone and will take care of all of the dirty work too! To be called the Olivia Pope of anything is an extremely difficult level to reach, since this fictional character is unrealistically perfect at everything she does, but Rachael has earned that title without a doubt. I would hire her for anything. One of the best things about her is she’s great at everything wedding-related too! From going to Sephora with me to help me pick out makeup for the big day, to capturing some of the most special moments from my wedding on her iPhone, to even driving an hour to Delaware in rush hour traffic to help me pick out the perfect amount of alcohol to be served at our wedding, Rachael truly does it all. She is way more than simply your wedding planner. She becomes your biggest fan, an incredible friend, and, on the big day, the most reliable person in the room. No one made us feel more comfortable than Rachael on our wedding day, which just goes to show how important she was to the entire event. Our wedding was perfect, thanks to Rachael. I don’t see how we could have pulled it off without her. Anyone who works with Rachael should consider themselves lucky, because this girl is going places! So if you’re able to book her, do it while you can! I really think she could be running our country someday (hopefully someday soon!) Thank you, Rachael, for helping to make our wedding the best day of our lives. We can’t imagine it without you! - Emily & Rand
I hired Jean to day-of coordinate my wedding this past April. I started talking to her right around the same time that I started getting overwhelmed by wedding planning and she was incredibly helpful. She made me a detailed to do list for the last 4 weeks (I was doing all wedding planning on my own), would check in to help me keep organized, made herself familiar with my other vendors and knew details about the itinerary better than I did at times! She attended the rehearsal and was there all day for me during the wedding. This was actually the first time I met her in person as I was planning from across the country, and she was so warm and became a friend immediately which helped calm my nerves. The one thing I wanted for the day of my wedding was to not worry about anything- and I got my wish thanks to Jean. It rained unexpectedly for photos and our ceremony had to be switched to a different location, but I didn’t have to worry about any of it. She was super organized, had more energy than I did all day, and made sure things went flawlessly even when we had some hiccups. Jean was a dream to work with and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding coordinator or event planner.
Edward was very professional and made our wedding a very special day . He was very helpful and paid a lot of attention to details. Our pictures came out beautiful and we had some digital prints next day final work was done in two weeks for the digital images with edits.I would definitely recommend Edward and his staff for any photography.
Having Wes officiate our wedding was the easiest and best decision we made for our wedding. My husband and I weren’t quite sure how the ceremony was supposed to flow and Wes provided his recommendations and shared his past experiences. During our meetings, he helped us understand the overall layout and select readings. He worked closely with our good friend to break up the ceremony into the “official” parts and the heartfelt readings/commentary. On the big day he had the room of our family and friends laughing and crying - they all RAVED about him and kept saying it was the best ceremony they have sat through. We can’t thank Wes enough for his support on our big day. Thank you!
Connie planned my wedding and she was extremely responsive and was in constant communication. My wedding was rather short notice but she managed to be able to contact all the vendors I needed for my big day!
Dia was my wedding planner. She did a wonderful job. She was very willing to go above and beyond for me. She did not at any point allow me to get upset or overwhelmed about anything. she had suggestions for me in regards to vendors. She referred me to an AMAZING hairstylist and a place for decorations! I would recommend Du Jour Event Planning to any and everyone! When your trying to get through an event, it becomes much easier when you have someone reliable that will ease your worries! I had a wonderful experience! THANK YOU AGAIN!
I could go on and on about these two beautiful women, they were such a pleasure to work with from start to finish they made our day unforgettable. I truly am thankful for choosing them for our wedding, always informative, punctual and very professional. I look forward to working with them again.
McHale Event Planning did an AMAZING job finding me exactly what I wanted for my beach wedding. They were responsive and accurate and really showed that they understood the look I was trying to achieve. I would recommend them a thousand times over!
Shelia was great. She helped me stay in my budget and we figured out a flower arrangement that worked best for me. I am excited to see my flowers on my wedding day.
