Teresa and Lisa did a phenomenal job for my 12-person wedding group. Everyone from my 10-year old niece to my 70+-year old mother-in-law looked natural and polished. Nothing was over the top. Teresa was very responsive to my feedback from our trial and made adjustments on the day of my wedding that left both my new husband and me happy. I am sure I will be hiring Teresa again in the future!
The entire ALD team is incredible! Communication, professionalism, decorating...all of it. Impeccable. They did a fantastic job for my Grandmother’s 90th birthday party. It was beautiful. Not only did April do exactly what we asked but she anticipated any other need we might have and was prepared for that as well. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone. I have already given the information out to quite a few people. ALD is definitely where it’s at!
Angie of Honey Do Wedding and Event Planners was one of the best decisions we made throughout our wedding planning process. She was affordable (especially for a student and military wedding) but always made us feel like her number one clients. Not only was she a great value, but she went over and above what we were expecting. We hired her to be our day of coordinator, but we met with her on a regular basis and she always responded to all calls, texts, and emails. Angie is incredibly personable, knowledgeable, and has connections with various other wedding vendors. As a same sex couple, she never treated us any differently than an opposite-sex couple, and she actually was great at recognizing the subtle differences that come with having two brides. At our first meeting at a potential venue, Angie came prepared with examples of her work and binder with all of our info. She even printed out new forms that said bride and bride instead of bride and groom. These small but significant touches are what make Angie stand out among other wedding planners. She helped us negotiate with vendors to get better prices and confirmed all vendors the week of, lifting a lot of the stress off of our shoulders. We can't speak highly enough of Angie and the Honey Do family!
I hired Denean's Party by Design as my day-of coordinator for the ceremony (I had on-site coordinators for the reception site). This meant they would speak with the necessary vendors, do minor setup and takedown, come to the rehearsal, assist with the timing of the music, and guide us down the aisle. Overall, I am so glad that I decided to hire a day-of-coordinator and pleased with the service I received from Denean and her team. She was also very affordable!! We did not have a musician, but opted to use a CD player in the back of the chapel instead. This would be complicated to arrange ourselves, and was a major area of concern. I downloaded all of the music and burned the Cds, then they timed the playing of the pre-ceremony, processional, and post-ceremony music and it was perfectly done, as was the timing of my bridal party and making sure everything was in place. An area of improvement: Part of my agreement was that they would assist in breakdown, which they absolutely did, but it was my understanding that they would help carry and load these items into my parents car. Instead, they asked me if I needed anything else, but I was too busy and focused on other things to know. I wished they had asked my mom instead. So naturally, they left without helping my parents, who had to carry all of the flowers and other items, which were being transported to the reception, to their car. This is only a minor disappointment and I would recommend this vendor to future brides.
Mary is the perfect wedding coordinator. She is very genuine and very in tune to every detail. My wedding day was stress free because she managed 180 guests and my entire bridal party along with other vendors. She was sensitive to the time and she provided agendas at each meeting. She went the distance at my wedding and truely sacrificed to be at meetings including the wedding rehearsal. I couldn't have ask for anyone better. She was humble, engaged actively, and made decisions for the better. She even provided additional details that could make my ceromony more romantic and meaningful. She ensured everything was in its place for ceromony reception, cocktail reception, and wedding reception. She was everything more than a coordinator and fulfilled my hearts desire. I love her and she has the right heart. She gives back in the lives she connected by celebrating others victories. I'm grateful that I found her she was an answer to a prayer.
I had the distinct pleasure of working with the incomparable Michele Palmer (and her dynamic team) for my recent wedding in October 2016. I hired Michele and her team to help with month-of wedding coordination. Initially, I thought I only needed someone to help set up the venue on the day of the wedding and handle week-of phone calls with the other vendors to make sure that everyone was on board and had the correct details. However, as this was my first time planning a wedding, and despite my tendency to be an extremely organized person, there were so many little things that Michele and her team took care of that I hadn’t even expected or anticipated and that helped my wedding go off without a hitch. I would ABSOLUTELY hire Michele and her team again, for any event I host, and merrily pay whatever price to secure her services. In chronological order, and among other kudos for things that I am sure happened behind the scenes and of which I am unaware, I can credit Michele and her team with: -Coordinating the walkthrough at the venue with the caterer, myself, and her team (which happened more than a month prior to the wedding) -Working with the unusually inflexible venue to book a real band, get the band in for training, and arrange for the band to be there with ample time to set up and take down their equipment -Working with the venue to design a floor plan and timeline that the venue was able to understand (despite their perpetually baffled reactions to things from cabaret-style seating to the timing of cocktail hour) -Arranging two rendezvous with myself and my husband (prior to and after the wedding) to meet halfway and transfer LOTS of wedding “stuff” from one vehicle to another. (NEW BRIDES: this is SUPER IMPORTANT because it allowed all of our wedding guests and ourselves to leave the venue at the end of the evening without having to wait around for any handmade decorations, gifts, etc. to be collected and transported into someone’s car. It was the #1 thing that made us feel like we could celebrate on the day rather than be the hosts.) -Chunking last-minute detail information for me, such as deciding on linens, and communicating that information to the caterer (including number of each type of linen for each specific type of table in the venue) -Making useful suggestions that enhanced the wedding experience for the guests (pintuck linens instead of plain, three lanterns on the tables rather than one so they wouldn’t get lost) -Exchanging seemingly hundreds of text messages to answer my last-minute questions and attend to last-minute requests for things such as changing out an escort card when one of the guests broke up with his date two days before the wedding -Arranging for 29 sets of fairy lights for our lanterns, checking the batteries for each one, and stuffing them into the lanterns (saving me from a seriously tedious task) -Being prepared to handle any number of high-maintenance relatives, including knowing their names and where they would be seated -Handling guests that showed up to the venue 75 minutes early (!!!) when the venue was not ready to receive them -Checking in with myself and my husband multiple times throughout the evening to make sure we were OK and had everything we needed (food, drink, a moment to collect ourselves) -Working hand-in-glove with the caterer to accommodate our unusual ceremony (of unknown duration) -Helping me to bustle my dress quickly and efficiently with little direction (CRUCIAL when you don’t have someone at your final fitting and simply need someone to bustle the dress who has bustling experience) -Tearing it up on the drums as a guest drummer for the live band for a song or two -Checking in after the wedding to arrange any and all wrapping-up details PS: Michele can totally hook you up with lanterns and make your tables look SUPER romantic!

From day one, Anna was prompt, patient, and kind. Her demeanor (and skills!) gave me confidence that she would be the perfect stylist for my wedding. I would recommend to family and friends. I'm also going to go to her for my haircuts from now on! Thanks Anna!
Bianca, from a A Beyoutiful Fete, planned my bridal shower. She was hired by my maid of honor and it was amazing how she pulled everything together at such short notice. The pink, ivory, and gold theme décor she put together was elegant and on point! I wish she could have planned my wedding. She truly went above and beyond for my bridal shower and every one was amazed. I would recommend her to any of my friends and family. She is so sweet and a pleasure to work with.
Little Black Book Events did a wonderful job planning my bridal shower and bachelorette party. I really felt that Vanessa listened to and heard what I did and didn't want and designed parties that were perfect for me. It was elegant, classy, and fun. All of the guests had a wonderful time. I would absolutely use Little Black Book Events to plan a party in the future!
Lina was absolutely amazing! I had a large bridal party and was having a hard time finding a hair stylist that wouldn’t break the bank. Lina went above and beyond to make sure the bridesmaids hair and my hair was styled amazingly! Loved every angle of the hair styles and how personalized she was!
From the first consultation with Keisha I knew she was a perfect fit for us! Affinity One Events were hired for my day of wedding day coordination, but it was a lot of communication and meetings before the actual day. Keisha was flexible and very reliable. Several of my guests noticed how helpful and professional affinity one event staff members were during the wedding. I could not be more thankful for the service that was provided!
I didn't think I needed planning assistance, but eventually became overwhelmed with all of the shower details. I met Tillie through this site and she helped me every step of the way. It really pays to hire someone who has experience and knows what they're doing. Party planning sounds fun and easy, but there's alot to it that I didn't realize at first. Thank you Tillie for helping me and creating such an amazing and fun bridal shower.
My gosh, Gloria with Glowkiss events is the best. If there is anyone I owe it to for what a success my wedding was, I owe it to her. I hired her as my Day of Event coordinator closer to my wedding date and she definitely went above and beyond that title and my expectations. I made the mistake of thinking I could do everything but realized closer to my wedding date, I would need a coordinator to run the shots. When I contacted her, it was as if we had been discussing things from the very beginning of my planning. She had check lists for my bridal team, made sure invites were out, and contacted all my vendors to make sure things would go as planned and that I hadn’t missed anything. On my wedding day, her and her team made sure a 400+ guest list was orderly and moving through the maneuvers of the event seamlessly. She even had someone attend to my gift table for us. I really am grateful for her and if your having an event especially a wedding, Gloria and her team is your leading lady !
Deedra of Social Savvy was the planner for my wedding. She was extremely thorough, detail-oriented and great at negotiating with vendors. Because of Deedra, my wedding was executed perfectly and I couldn't be happier. I definitely recommend Social Savvy for all of your event planning needs.
Absolutely talented! Corinna was referred to me through a good friend who used Corinna for her bridal makeup. I was told that she was incredible, and after using Corinna for my bridal makeup too.... incredible is an understatement! She did the makeup for my whole bridal party to include myself, the bridesmaids (4), mother, and mother-in-law. -- FLAWLESS!!! I highly recommend Corinna, as she was very responsive, flexible, and a true professional. Thank you, Corinna! Sarah Nov 2015 (Bishop Wedding)
Tee Tee's Southern Taste decorated and cooked for my sisters bridal shower and not only did the venue look amazing the food was delicious! Everyone kept talking about how good everything was.
I used Stephanie White Events, LLC to plan my sister's bridal shower. Stephanie was helpful every step of the way. From location scouting to decorations and set up. The event turned out wonderfully and it was made possible by the excellent service provided by Stephanie.
I had the pleasure of working with Amy & staff for formal wear and wedding planning. I have no complaints. Everything went smooth and is continuing that way.
Definitely a pleasure to work with. I did my first bridal show in September of 2014. Michelle is great to work with!!
When we finish our job the client is satisfied and happy.
I am a makeup and a style consultant. I bring a different perspective on creating a look. I grew up in NY, and my mom was a seamstress for Bloomingdales, Saks, etc. I majored in Textile Science and how fabrics move, textures and even what will catch fire (yikes). I love getting to know people and creating a look just for them. That's what I love, and that's what I would do.
