    After interviewing 5-6 party planners for my sons graduation/farewell party. I wanted a memorable experience for my son to remember since he has enlisted to join the United States Marine Corp. I knew Cathy was my party planner I was going to hire the minute I met her, She answered all my questions and had a lot of awesome ideas for Graduation/ USMC / British decorations since the graduation party was in a British restaurant pub. She also suggested on serving heavy appetizers along with her awesome & yummy cocktails she personally mixed herself along with her yummy miniature cupcakes she also suggested from the bakery she highly recommends. As we walked into the pub that evening we were so amazed with the lighting in the room along with the props, decorations, table settings, picture frames & lets not forget the Mirror picture frame booth it all looked amazing. It was a memorable experience for my SON & our guest. I will definitely recommend Cathy with Paperie & Co. and her family crew. I could not have done it without her expertise on the party planning, I would do it all over again!!! Thank You Cathy!!!

    Me and my husband are so thankful for the team at Paperie & Company. My only regret is that we didn't hire them sooner. As things got closer to the wedding we realized we needed some help. Paperie & Company came in 10 days before the wedding and completely took all the stress away from us. The day was absolutely perfect and despite the threat of rain the sun shone for us. I couldn't have asked for a better team than Paperie & Company to help us with our wedding.

    Wedding planning isn't exactly her forte
    Cathy was my wedding planner. She was rude to my mom the whole 3 months, would lie to both of and give conflicting stories then we would realize when my mom and I would talk, her coordination of the wedding was almost useless. She sent the bridesmaids in about 5 minutes before I was there. She mixed up the cake flavors and would not announce that the cake was being cut or round up my parents, she didn't have the DJ announce speeches, she refused to do any decorating, she didn't refill the signature drinks like she claims she did in the text to me, she yelled at the groom at the rehearsal, would not follow through with vendors, complained about my mom to me and about how much work she would have to do on the morning of my wedding (after my aunts and bridesmaids stayed up until 3 am the night before because she told us she wouldn't do any decorating), made the wedding guests move their chairs even though Cathy and her team were supposed to do according to the agreement at the rehearsal, charged my mom's credit card for more money without my mom's permission, changed things on the cake and the bouquet without asking me, and generally didn't care about anything except getting paid. They did do a good job of cleaning at the end of the reception, however.
    Cathy Z. Apr 18, 2017

    While there has been much offline discussion regarding this entire wedding, all we can do is make sure that we do what we are hired to do and try to take care of things we are allowed to manage. We can provide many references outside of the many wonderful reviews we have to show that we do our jobs very well. First and foremost the bride has been asked to state her opinion and facts instead of making comments that are false and can be backed up with factual emails showing that cake flavors were ordered per her specification, and cake cutting was announced, but due to wind perhaps there were issues with sound, and our staff was taking care of cake cutting, managing trash to keep guests from getting it on them with wind, and certainly were not aware that some people were not aware. We have clarified that drinks were refilled multiple times and managed by our staff. We have the multitude of emails that were exchanged with not only vendors, but bride and MOB to show communication. We understand that work was done leading up to the wedding, as that was communicated to be the case from day one. When we were asked at 730am on day of wedding if we could come early, we replied with we can try to be there slightly ahead of agreed time of 330pm and were told never mind. The expectation was that 'day of' should have been all day even though it was stated multiple times 330pm to 1130pm and we also did arrive early and stay late. The credit card was charged only with invoice and permission from MOB with a confirmed email to show proof as we do not charge anything without permission. We also provided jars for the signature drinks that we didn't charge for even though the bride indicated she would pay rental fee, we thought with all the wind issues and other that we just donated for them. Nothing was changed or added to any aspect as we have emails that show each request. We work very hard in the thousands of events we have done to provide quality service and appreciate all our clients. Everyone can have their own opinion and we respect that, we just ask that you state facts and one of the reasons we keep all communication so as to avoid these type problems. We wish the bride and groom every happiness and we have shared the confirming emails with them as well so that they can have to understand facts.

Then, they are so fun to learn from. I was totally untrained, but now I'm finally getting it. I highly recommend Cathy Zuniga.

    Cathy and her team respond to messages very quickly! No waiting around for days for a response. My fiance and I had so much fun with lessons that my parents decided to take lessons from Josh as well. He has such a variety of knowledge and more importantly patience! My fiance and I have ZERO dance background and Josh makes sure to explain things in different ways if we don't pick it up right away. We want to start salsa lessons with them after the wedding!
  • Kiki J. Aug 14, 2016
    Josh is not only a fantastic teacher but also a great dancer himself. Josh had his work cut out with us. We were completely new to dance and he is helping us find our dancing feet! His patience and encouragement is really helping us to pick up the steps. Josh is a very talented dancer himself. We arrived early for one of our lessons and we were treated to Josh dancing a beautiful routine. Not only does he teach the basics but he also teaches choreographed routines and helps wedding couples put together beautiful dances. What we saw was amazing and gives us hope that we might one day be able to dance something similar to that. I would highly recommend Josh as a teacher.

    After planning out my daughter's wedding down to almost every detail, we decided a few weeks before the wedding that it might be a good idea to get assistance on the day of the wedding to keep everything running smoothly. We met with Cathy and her son, Josh, to discuss our plans, and were immediately impressed with Cathy's knowledge and "can do" attitude. There were several things that Cathy mentioned that we had not even thought about, and my daughter and I left our meeting feeling so relieved that we decided to get Cathy's help. Cathy went above and beyond, not just on the day of the wedding, but in the weeks before. She even shopped around for our rehearsal dinner, and did some price comparisons on beer and wine for the wedding to make sure that we were getting the best prices from our vendor. Cathy stayed in constant contact with all of our vendors prior to the wedding as well as on the day of the wedding to ensure that everything was in place as planned. We had numerous issues with our florist prior to and on the day of the wedding, and Cathy was right there to straighten everything out. She even made a trip to the florist on the day of the wedding because the boutonnieres and corsages were not right. She made sure that new ones were made, and she even delivered them herself! During the wedding Cathy and her family made every detail run smoothly and seamlessly, from managing the order of events to keeping Grammie's wine glass full! :0) Our only regret is that we didn't get Cathy involved sooner than we did!
    Cathy Z. May 19, 2016

    Alicia, thank you so much! It was a beautiful wedding and a beautiful couple inside and out. We were thrilled to be a part of this wonderful day. We loved every minute, and Grammie and I share a love of Moscato as well. Please let us know when we can assist again in any way for future events.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
The pricing is not complicated - invitations are completely dependent on vendor choice, and print type - if you add layers or ribbons or other specialty items and can range from $1 an invitation to $100 an invitation - it is all in what you want. Events are the same - they all are about what you want to spend, and we can make them happen on any budget. Venue choice can impact the cost, food choices can impact the cost - you can't just say $5 and be done - we can work with any budget and will be very honest on what we can and can't do with what you have to spend. For dance we offer per hour pricing as well as packages that work for those looking for more training or choreography. .
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
With dance we have meetings and understand timeline and what results they want to accomplish . We understand their song choices or help with that and then build on their strengths and vision. For events we take a similar approach, understanding their budget and vision and how we can bring them together.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Of course, in any profession you should be learning everyday! We have been in the event planning industry for 20 years and decorating as well as just day of coordination. In dance Josh is professionally trained and dances Master level on the country competition floor, as well as highest levels of ballroom, swing, theater and more.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Well we have loved event work for most of our life and have been involved in so many through the years in some way that we felt it was time to branch out and help our corporate clients and brides in just one more way. My son has always loved paper and printing and we found that many people in the industry didn't really understand how printing techniques work, and also in depth about the vendors so you can get people what they want, so we decided it was a great fit for us. In dance, Josh has danced professionally for 18+ years growing up dancing and turning pro at 16. Holding hundreds of titles in various genres of dance he was trained by the best in the world in ballroom, country, swing, theater arts, adiago, hustle, salsa and more. Understanding what people want in dance lessons and if they are looking for a one time performance or learning a skill that can grow old with them, determines the path he suggests.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Event planning, catering, invitations, linens, decorating, dance and more. In dance we work with those seeking social dance skills, health reasons, wedding dance and choreography, competition dance and all levels from beginner to advanced.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Catering and taking care of brides, corporate clients, holiday celebrations, and more! We have had a large number of wedding couples this year and nothing brings greater satisfaction than seeing that dance come together and the reaction from the guests.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
You can easily get overwhelmed with so many choices - make sure you know what you want - and allow a professional to guide you to the ones that meet your needs, don't try to look at everything. Make sure when choosing a dance instructor they understand your timing and do not let people say they can train you in one lesson because that is not true. Building a great foundation with dance is key to everything, even a simple routine.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
If you are planning an event there are so many aspects that people forget about and that is our job, we know what you need, and can help you without gaps, as well as make sure you don't have things you really do not need. With dance, you want to find an instructor that wants to truly teach you dance, whether choreography or just steps, there is a foundation you build upon, not a competition base, but still you want to amaze everyone when you dance. I wish they knew that just because we are mobile does not make us unreliable or any different than the brick and mortar store - we have the same selections with just better pricing and we can meet you anytime - which makes your convenience our top priority. Regarding dance you need to make sure you are getting a professional that will provide you quality choreography that fits your dance and your ability while also meeting your vision.
