I hired Chef Kev through Thumbtack because he replied promptly to my request and already had a suggested menu based off of my needs. The event was my 1 year wedding anniversary and I requested drop-off catering for a buffet style dinner. The only change that I'd make is the time. Chef Kev was delayed due to traffic but looking back, if he was able to arrive just 15-20 minutes sooner I may have been less distracted and frantic! LOL! Everything else was absolutely awesome. The price was great, the flavor and creativity were amazing... all of my guests enjoyed the food! If I ever decide to hold another large event, Chef Kev will be the first caterer I call!
I just recently for married June 24th, 2017 and from the beginning DMV event staffing we're on top of everything. Dee stayed in contact with me the whole time & she responded to any questions I had during this process. The best part was the bartender she sent sent me for my wedding. JAHRED was AMAZING!!! I could not have asked for such a wonderful bartender. He reached out to me ,introduced himself, answered any questions I had. He had such a warm soul. My family & friends loved him! He knew his Jon very well, was on point with everything, & with the bride being busy, he made sure not to forget about me. Will definitely be using DMV services again. Very satisfied customer. Thank u Dee!!!
Top of the City blew us out of the water with their phenominal service. From the beginning of the wedding planning they were easy to work with and eager to accomodate. The price was very, very reasonable for such a classy affair!
We had a lot of moving parts with our wedding, and we couldn't have done it without Edelina! As soon as we hired her she was working with us, not just the day of. She always got back to us very quickly and her expertise and experience was so helpful. Our wedding went so smoothly and we're so thankful for her coordination. We definitely recommend hiring Edelina for your wedding or event!
April Daniels, the owner of ALD Event Solutions is simply amazing! She has such passion, talent and an eye for beauty. April donated her talents, skills and time to help plan our 6th Annual Fundraiser and Volunteer Recognition Gala (http://www. gala.havserve.org) as a pro bono consultant and was simply amazing as a team member. She is extremely easy to work with and professional. I highly recommend April Daniels for any events planning. More photos of the event will be shared through our Facebook page soon: https://www.facebook.com/HavServe/ Carline Brice-Mesilus, HavServe Founder.
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!
By some divine intervention, my husband and I stumbled upon Denean's Party By Design at a time when we were having a number of problems with our venue. Denean and her team were truly God-sends! Denean is thorough, detail-oriented, understanding, and so kind. She was so pleasant to deal with throughout the process. My husband and I had an inter-faith (Jewish and Catholic wedding) - Denean took the time to learn all the traditions and customs to make sure everyone's customs were honored. Denean also went above and beyond to ensure that our venue accommodated an entirely gluten free wedding. Any request that I made - no matter how obscure or small - Denean exceeded. On the day of the wedding, Denean and her team kept everyone on track, calm, and organized. Denean set up the venue beautifully, taking care of every last detail down to the placecards and photo arrangements. Additionally, she made sure we had zero issues with the food. The day ran so smoothly. My husband and I had to do nothing but enjoy the day. Hiring Denean and her team was the best decision we made, period!
Such a great couple to work with! I love how this husband and wife team work together to make sure your event runs smoothly! I hired them for my wedding and they were amazing! They made sure to play songs for my family to dance to, songs my husband and I requested and a song I requested for my nieces. I enjoyed them and know whoever hires in the future will too!
Everything about our experience with Catering Reserved was incredible. Dianna Gilbert showed immense professionalism, and was the perfect caterer for our wedding reception. We are so grateful for everything she did and would not hesitate to recommend her, and the company.
Michele and Laura are absolutely amazing and I highly suggestion them for any type of event! They were such a delight I now consider them friends. I hired them as day of planner for my wedding about 30 days before the wedding date and they jumped right in and help me with all details and logistics for the day so I didn't have to think about anything. They worked with all of the vendors I hired to coordinate and schedule out the day of the wedding as well as the details needed before the day. They also came to every meeting with me that I had at the hotel(reception site) from the day I hired them to the day before the wedding. They were there to protect me and my ideas and vision for my wedding day. Every email I sent with questions was answered within hours if not sooner. And trust me, I sent a lot of emails :-) My wedding was amazing and I owe it to them for it being possible. They were able to source signs and décor I wanted last min,the day before the wedding!!There were some hiccups that happened the "Day of" but I didn't even know about them because Michele and Laura from hotel to the church helped smooth it all out and knew what I wanted and were able to make decisions for me. They really do it all, the hotel coordinator left before my desserts were plated, so Michele and Laura were in the kitchen plating desserts for the buffet. And the last song of the night Michele, the multi-talented lady that she is, played the drums with our band!! Honestly, their professionalism, coordinating skills and genuine care and passion for their events make these two the BEST!
Hiring Mary to coordinate my daughters wedding was one of the best decisions I made. Everything went so smooth and I could not have been happier with my decision.
BMore Fabulous was such a great find for our wedding, we will be looking to work with them again soon for our family reunion! I needed a wedding planner due to my busy schedule. I wanted someone to be able to accomplish anything I needed from vendor searches to scheduling. I quickly found out that I needed an all-inclusive package, however, all the polished major companies I found were charging a ridiculous amount of money and not providing everything I wanted to be accomplished. To save money and also try to support local businesses or start-ups, students, amateurs etc, I started to look for wedding planners on craigslist, thumbtack, local ads etc. I found BMore Fabulous and was quickly convinced that this was who I wanted to work with. The price was right, the details were many, and the contract was flexible. I did not realize until later, but we really did win big by working with this company. BMore Fabulous was more than all inclusive. Erin, the boss, accomplished all the expected all-inclusive activities such as finding vendors, scheduling meetings, and planning the day of events, but she did WAYY more than that. She was also our decorator for the venue, with her own linen and decor, she provided uplighting for beatuiful effects with her own equipment, and she was our florist for all the bouquets and decor. She also provided the staff and coordination for our bar. If you truly want all inclusive in one place, Erin, from BMore Fabulous is the WOMAN. Also, regardless of what she could provide, Erin, was very flexible. This, I find, might have been the most important benefit we got from working with them. I imagine other polished and bougie companies would be very strict and inflexible when it came to the contract, payment options, changes to your ideas and plans. With Erin, we were able to change our contract twice. Our payment options were flexible, and there were no hiccups with policies. If we had a vision, there was no headache with changing things. My husband and I are very particular and he had his doubts if all of our details would turn out right at the wedding. He actually had his doubts about BMore Fabulous, because all of our meetings were not conducted at an office, and details were written on lined paper, or an old laptop etc. In all reality, that was judgmental. Our wedding turned out absolutely beautiful! Despite that there were so many mistakes from our officiant and DJ, the crowd did not notice, and the only reason it ran as smooth as it did was because of BMore Fabulous! My husband in fact, later said how he was impressed by Erin and her work and how she did an exceptional job. Definitely work with BMore Fabulous!
We hired Lisa to be our on-site wedding coordinator a month before the big day, and she jumped right in and helped everything run smoothly and efficiently. She worked with the on-site staff to decorate and prepare the venue and she did a great job. Would recommend Lisa to others.
Good Afternoon, Mrs Lamey This is Sabrina, I just want to personally Thank you and your husband for such a wonderful and professional job that you did for Sonja's wedding. Thumbtack sent me a survey but I was locked out my phone since Saturday. I rate your service a 10+
When my now wife and I set out to plan our wedding, we were one of those couples who thought hiring a planner was unnecessary. We had roughly 6 months to pull it off. We fancy ourselves as reasonably intelligent and financially responsible people and we thought that was plenty of time. Fast forward 4 months. The stress began to mount and panic had set in. Our budget is dwindling. We broke down and decided to hire a day-of coordinator. Better late than never, but who do we call? Every one we spoke to was either way too expensive or not the right fit personality wise. Thanks to Thumbtack, we found Vanessa. We are incredibly happy we did and we couldn't have pulled off our awesome wedding without her. Here's just a few of the reasons why: 1) Attitude - She has the PERFECT demeanor for event planning. She kept us on track, but was never pushy. Very personable and easy to talk to. Every time we spoke to her we felt both at ease and motivated to check more off of our list. 2) Creativity - Simply put she has great ideas. Whether it was decor, logistics, floor planning, etc., she listened to our inputs (which weren't always in lockstep - welcome to married life) but put here own spin on things. Our wedding was weeks ago and we still are getting comments on how beautiful everything was. 3) Contacts - Vanessa made great recommendations for vendors, and didn't do so based on any kickbacks or financial gain to herself. In fact, we had one vendor who was somewhat flaky that we had already booked. She was able to line up a "just in case" vendor for us. 4) Organization - Nothing fell through the cracks and she thought of small details we didn't have the capacity to (because we were too busy being crazy pants). 5) Value - She is worth every penny and I would argue she is a bargain for the service she provides. This is especially in comparison to other planners out there. If you need help planning an event, not just a wedding, we highly suggest you reach out to Vanessa @ Little Black Book. You absolutely will not regret it.
We found Devoted to Your Event after having fire our previous planner. The difference between Tracy's service and our original planner was night and day. You couldn't ask for a more professional, organized or dedicated individual. Our wedding day was flawless. The special touches that she added received a lot of compliments. We didn't have to worry about anything other than enjoying our wedding day. I would most certainly hire and recommend Tracy, Devoted to Your Event, in the future.
Denise was worth her weight in gold. She was friendly, professional, and really took care of business. Other vendors and family members commented that our wedding planner really made things smoothly, making our wedding a night to remember. She even helped me pull off a secret gender reveal at the end of our wedding reception. We highly recommend Denise, and we thank her for helping to make our wedding day PERFECT! -Noel and Jhemika Leslie
Detailed Diva helped me to plan my wedding this summer and I literally could not have managed without them! I worked with Nesikah as she helped to find my venue, helped with decorating the venue, found me spa services the day of, set up beauty services, and helped to make my rehearsal dinner extra special! Nesikah is very professional,kind and calm, detail oriented, and truly knew how to help a confused and overwhelmed bride (I am very indecisive). I would highly recommend Detailed Diva for any event planning services.
From the very first phone conversation she was so easy to talk to. I felt very comfortable with her from day one. She offered me so many ideas that I was able to work with. Planning a wedding is very stressful, yet she was able to keep my head in the game! Kudos to Kim
My husband and I are SUPER EXCITED with the outcome and very careful planning of our 10 year "Vow Renewal"!! Planned by Shauna Robinson of 'Brides-to- be Wedding's. Mrs. Robinson came to our home and explained 'exactly' what "Brides to-be'- does', she was also concerned with what our expectation's were for our wedding. We were so impressed with her kindness, her elegance, her organization skills and her ability to take the stress of planning off of my plate! She saved me so much stress!!! Our wedding was Simply Amazing thanks to Shauna! She stayed in contact with all of my vendors, the venue coordinator and anyone else involved in my wedding! I couldn't believe just how organized she was...she took my stress away and assured me that she was going to make sure my wedding was everything we thought it would be, and she delivered!!! I would highly recommend Brides- to- be to everyone" that wants a Awesome, patient Wedding Coordinator! I truly appreciate her work! Awesome, just AWESOME!!!!!!! L. Harvey
Amanda and Remembered Events planned my April 22 wedding. She was just perfect for what we needed. I didn't want to stress or do anything the week of my wedding. Everything was on point, organized, and exactly how we had discussed it. I loved the online updates of progress and questions she had. Amanda was so easy to reach by phone or text. We had some issues day of and I didn't even know until after. I couldn't have been happier. -Claire
