We hired Nick when our original DJ plans fell through, a bit at the last minute. What a happy development! He was amazing! Understood after meeting with us only a few minutes exactly what we wanted for our 50th wedding anniversary party. We had given a lot of thought about how we wanted the evening to go, and the right music at the right time was very important to us. Nick made it happen and the evening exceeded our high expectations. Our guests, aged 9 to 90, had a fabulous time, and said it was the best party ever! We highly, highly recommend Nick and his company.
It was such a pleasure working with Eleven Courses. As the wedding planner, I hired them based upon my client's taste to be our premier caterer for a tented wedding reception at Glenview Mansion on April 11, 2015. Eleven Courses not only worked with me throughout the whole process, (i.e. tasting, contract, and walkthrough at the venue) they were always very responsive to my questions. In all honesty, their blend of professionalism and friendliness immediately made me feel like I was part of their team. The day of the event, Eleven Courses went above and beyond to ensure that everything was perfectly executed. They arrived on time, helped to set up the table linens, plates, glasses, etc. contracted out by the tent company. The presentation of the food was immaculate. The food not only looked great, it was delicious. As well, the food was more than enough to accommodate the guest count. The guests raved all night about the cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres in the mansion, and the main entrees served during the reception. Clean up was also perfectly executed by Eleven Courses. Their staff of servers were excellent and very helpful, and our tandem coordination made things seamless. I am so excited to work with Eleven Courses again, and cannot wait to recommend them to my future clients. They will for sure be one of my premiere catering vendors! I was beyond pleased as a vendor, and individual. I am all about customer service and they are outstanding. Eric & Chrissy are beyond great, and down-to Earth individuals to work with. They also go out of their way to ensure that your vision for food at your event is executed. A big thank you! If you are looking for professionalism, quality food, and a great quantity give them a try, you won't be disappointed. They were such a blessing! -Josephine (wedding planner at www.1-stopplanning.com)
We hired Edelina to be the DOC for our 100-person, same-sex, church-hall, largely DIY wedding reception in September. We also hired several of her staff to set up the hall, receive food from the caterer and serve it buffet-style, arrange presentation of several types of desserts, and take care of clean-up. In the several months throughout the wedding planning, Edelina was extremely accessible for questions and recommended several other vendors to us, including our fantastic bartender. On the day itself, Edelina did a phenomenal job! She and her staff went above and beyond, including set-up and clean-up projects that took longer than anticipated, and rolled with everything. She coordinated the timing and direction of several live musical performances, including a band, and handled both professional catering and family-provided food with energy and care. She and her staff ran what could have been a chaotic kitchen with military precision. The wedding went off without a hitch and was very 'us' - thank you, Edelina!
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!
We can not express into words the phenomenon job that Extravagant Affairs did for our wedding on 11/05/2016. From the time that we chose them to handle our catering needs to the very end of our special day, their team handled every detail with the highest level of class and commitment. Our guests are still talking about the excellent food selection. If you are looking for elegance, price affordability, and professionalism, I would definitely recommend them
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!
Jacqueline was the most professional, warm, efficient wedding planners I've ever worked with! She made sure to keep the wedding party updated with itineraries & the wedding went off without a hitch! I HIGHLY recommend Jacqueline & hope to use her for my wedding!
I am a bride on a tight budget, so I intended to do all of my wedding planning, but in January I realized I needed someone to help me coordinate on the day of the wedding (May 21, 2017). When I finally found Michelle, she stepped in and helped me get organized. Michelle was right there each step of the way making sure I was on schedule for a worry free wedding day.
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.
As the mother of the bride I was very pleased at how everyone at Top Shelf worked be hid the scene to make my daughters wedding the perfect event. All that were involved gave a 110%. My daughter has already told girlfriends who are engaged that Top Shelf Event Planning is the only way to go. Thank you for creating a great memory.
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.
My husband and I are so grateful we had the opportunity to have S.D events assist with our wedding day! Sara and her sister were extremely professional and worked so hard to get the job done! Sara was so much more than a typical day of planner! She made sure she was well informed every step of the way! Sara was very quick at answering ALL my questions! Sara helped keep the wedding process as fun and stress free as possible. My husband and I were able to enjoy every minute of our day ( and our days leading up to the wedding) because we knew Sara had everything under control we trusted her completely ! Most importantly, Sara & S.D Events made us feel apart of their family, and made sure we were taken care of. We have already recommended S.D Events to our friends!
Erin planned and cooridnated my bridal shower, engagement dinner, reception, and wedding and everything was flawless! I was a hands off bride as I just had a baby a few months ago so I needed someone who would take the reigns and do everything for me. Erin was the right person for the job and she did not disappoint. I was extremely nervous the day of my wedding and Erin went beyond by having champagne and cupcakes (two of my favorites) delivered to my room and my bridesmaids rooms. She didn't have to do that but she could feel my nervousness. After a while, it was like I was working with my best friend instead of just another party planner. I would highly recommend her to anyone who asks.
K.Chic Events did our family reunion which was incredible and in the making for a year! KISHA kept all family members abreast to what was going on since a lot of the family lived out of town! Kisha even went out of her way to handle lounging for some of the family. That was a major plus.The food,decorations,DJ was absolutely fabulous!! Kisha even had a few surprises for us (the family) with shirts with every member name on it,celebrating my mothers' birthday, plus my 40th wedding anniversary! Kisha professionalism was incredible! I will certaintly be using her services again! Thank you K.Chic Events (Kisha) for making our reunion a memorable celebration. Mrs.O
I was the maid of honor for my sister's wedding in the Fall of 2016 and I must commend Denise for her coordination and attentiveness. She is extremely helpful and always willing to see a task through to completion. She takes initiative which freed myself and my sister from a lot of tasks allowing us free time to focus on other details of the wedding. I thank her so much for her patience and excellent attitude. I highly recommend her for your next wedding event. Thanks Denise for everything!
I recently married my wife in September 2017 and I could not imagine a more special day and that was all thanks to Weddings by Dora. She gave us the total package from helping us select our venue, outfits, color and even menu. We selected the full service package and had monthly meetings until our wedding day. She provided an extensive schedule and planner to keep us on track. There was no detail or option she did not present or provide us. Even when we had questions outside of our meeting time, she was always available to assist or would respond back as soon as possible. I will be recommending her to all my friends that are engaged or anyone having a large scale party that needs planning. She went above and beyond on my wedding day which is something I will never forget. I did not have to lift a finger the day of and I would not have it any other way. Thank you so much for all of your hard work, Weddings by Dora, we will be sure to use you again for our big 20 vow renewal!
