Crystal was my wedding photographer and decorator for my wedding and she made my vision come to life. I told her what I wanted my wedding to look like and she did it and more. I was in awe when I saw her final results. the pictures that she took were all gorgeous. I haven't yet decided which ones to blow up and keep as my favorites. She took soooooo many that they made me smile for days and days. Her personality and professionalism was at 100% and she made my guest feel comfortable and have a good time. She kept everyone laughing and had the most creative poses that we will cherish forever. Crystal was definitely a joy to have as a part of my wedding and I couldn't have asked for a better decorator and photographer to be a part of my day. Crystal definitely made it fun. She even wore coral and gray which were my wedding colors. Definitely a bonus. If you need a photographer and or decorator then Crystal is the one for you.

Crystal was my wedding planner and decorator for my wedding and she did an awesome job. She was earlier than I expected, kept all problems under rap and away from me, the decor was outstanding and she even pulled out her camera and started taking pictures and gave me a few as a thank you. My day wouldn't have gone as smooth as it did without Crystal and people still can't stop talking about how pretty everything was. I will definitely recommend her to anyone and will hire her again all of my events.

After a late realization that I was in need of help on my wedding day, I hired Tiffany after 8 months of planning and less than one month before the big day. I had originally thought a wedding day coordinator was a waste of money (why not utilize family and friends?), but Tiffany proved that her experience and professionalism were worth every penny. Despite the short timeline, she and her team were able to provide every service I requested of her. Leading up to the big day, she was very quick with responses and offered to do everything she could to help. On the big day, she executed on everything she had outlined for us and went above and beyond to ensure the day went smoothly. I highly recommend TcTc Unforgettable Weddings & Events for any function.

Great people to work with, great job for a great price, professionals, don't hesitate to call them for your bridal needs. I hired them to drape a gym for a wedding of 200, and to provide a background of draping for the stage! It looked lovely. Lots of compliments from our guest. Very happy with their work.

I had a wonderful experience with Curtis. I planned my wedding in Virginia from another state. He was great to work with. He was very efficient with contacting me before the wedding. I appreciated that he wanted to meet up before the event to meet us and to talk face to face. During the event, he was wonderful !!! He played everything to our requests and much more. Everyone at the wedding said how pleasant he was to talk to and that he did a great job with the music. I can't thank him enough for being a part of our day.

Mr. Mayfield provided Dj Services for me in November. What I liked and what I think what everyone else look for is how professional he was and on time. Everyone that attended my party was impressed with his Djing skills and so was I. I would highly recommend Galactic Events to anyone that's looking for high quality and professional event planner. Absolutely 5 stars from me. Thank you, Pleased customer

Amazing food, amazing presentation, amazing prices, amazing service, & amazing cook. My 1st wedding caterer bailed on me last minute so I was in a rush to find someone and reasonable priced. Jason came to our house for the tasting and cooked us dinner which turned out to be a great experience on its own. A personal chef at home! We had a menu previously picked out so he did what he could to match it and it turned out even better than the first caterer. We also had items brought in from another source since we wanted a few traditional filipino dishes and he was happy to accommodate with those as well. He actually offered to cook those items himself as he had the experience but my grandmother insisted on her own which was fine either way. My grandmother also made a very, very last minute upgrade to the salmon (which was a big hit) & he made it happen for her. We also requested a specific salad we loved and he matched it with an amazing custom strawberry vinnegrette dressing that made it even better. The items we ordered were the applewood smoked bbq chicken thighs, creamy pesto shrimp pasta (my favorite) white mac & cheese (my husbands favorite & best mac n cheese i think I've ever had), grilled veggies, salad, & rolls. When first looking at the menu I thought it might not be wedding material and might be too casual but Jason puts an elegant twist to each dish and presents well. Don't be discouraged by his laid back approach as a tailgater. Which I'm sure he can do just as great. He does cook on site with his huge grill, so the food is nice and fresh for your guests. His easy going attitude and workability made being a stressful bride on a budget and time limit very comforting. I don't know Jason outside of this event but I would recommend him to anyone planning a party big or small.

Jason was awesome! To start with, he worked with us to give me exactly what I wanted for my wedding that fit my budget, including a caramel apple bar. He came all the way from Williamsburg, VA to Currituck, NC to cook for us so we could sample his food before making a decision. He cooked two different meals and we loved them both, but decided to go with the pork dish. Jason is a great communicator and promptly answered any questions I had throughout the wedding planning process. He was able to accommodate the guest count change I had, days before the wedding (it increased from 80 guests to 90) and even reminded me of some small details I had forgotten in all the chaos of planning a wedding. Jason and his assistants showed up at a reasonable hour the day of the wedding and I did not have to instruct them in any way. I confidently left to get ready for the wedding knowing they would have everything perfect for the reception. The guests raved about how delicious the food was, and the caramel apple bar was a hit! His assistants were so incredible in that they helped everyone make their caramel apples, cleared away dirty dishes, and assisted in serving cake to the guests. They went above and beyond what I was expecting out of this catering service. I cannot recommend Alpha Pitt Smokers enough. Jason and his crew are prepared - rain or shine - for whatever your special day has to offer; this was especially important since my day was full of rain. Please contact Jason as soon as possible and I can assure you, you won't regret it. He is warm, funny, and goes out of his way to make sure your day is perfect.

We are currently planning a wedding, and Alpha Pitt Smoker has been amazing to work with. We had the taste testing, at our home and the food was AMAZING! Jason is always in touch, checking in, and very easy to work with. We will keep you posted after the wedding, but I am fully confident Alpha Pitt Smokers will do a beautiful job !!

We hired Sandy for day of event coordination and it felt like she did so much to help coordinate with vendors and the venue. It made the mounting stress seem to just dissipate. My wife and I really wish we had found her sooner and made the call to have her coordinate the entire thing. My wife was away most the time with deployment and Sandy made communication easy despite most being through email and phone calls. She just magically solved problems with vendors and kept my wife and I in the loop the entire time. Her professionalism was top notch and I have been recommending her and bragging about her to everyone I know is getting married. CALL HER! It will be the greatest wedding planning decision you will make. Thank you Sandy!!!

Sandy was nothing short of amazing. I convinced my hubby that I wanted someone to help with the day of the wedding, and after he met Sandy, he was instantly convinced. Even with only coordinating the day if the event, I had access to her full-time. My wedding day was absolutely perfect, even my family and guests commented on how phenomenal she was. She is priceless!

TESTIMONIAL LETTER Tanya and Wadson Forlevil Dear Daphne, I feel obliged to write a personal appreciation note to you. You helped to organize our wedding, which took place 4 weeks ago. We would not have experienced our wedding the way we did, without your help. You were very organized with checklists for different parts of the wedding from the preparatory phase till the end. You gave us direction, guidance and helped us build bridges with best vendors, which helped us make right choices without wasting any precious time and money. Also, you were always readily available to solve and to answer any questions whether it was minor or major. You always listened patiently to the bride and groom. I was calm on my big day, knowing that it was going to be flawless thanks to your detailed planning skills. It now occurs to us that nobody can be aware of all the details that are required to make a perfect wedding. However, it seems that you have been there, done it yourself and now are using your acquired skill and knowledge to help others plan their big day. Therefore, well done for that and keep it up the good work. Wadson and I thank you tremendously for contributing your efforts and knowledge in planning our immaculate but simple wedding. We will indeed recommend you to all our family, friends and to whoever is planning their big day. In fact, we are very happy with everything and you can gladly use our letter to motivate other couples to accept your help in preparation for their big day. With love, Tanya and Wadson Forlevil (Bride and Groom)

They live up to their name!! For my 25th birthday I didn't think I needed an event planner, but when I decided to at least see how one could help, I ended up giving them a call. After our initial conversation, I knew that I would book them and I was not disappointed. They went above and beyond, got there as early as they could to setup, with beautiful decorations. Jamicia planned a very entertaining party with no dull moments. I would definitely book them again, and I highly recommend them!

One of the most important and rewarding decisions I made through the process of planning my wedding was choosing M&T to be my wedding planners. These girls are absolutely amazing. They took care of everything from helping me find a venue, to even taking my veil to get it cleaned for me. They were there every step of the way, for every contract I signed, for every decision I made, for picking out decorations and flowers, even for giving my dad (who lives out of state) directions when he got lost in Richmond on his way to the rehearsal. These girls were with me through thick and thin, and helped me plan the most amazing wedding I could have ever wanted, in only 3 months. When it came down to the day of, if anything caused complications, I never even knew it. Everything went so smoothly and just the way I imagined it would. At the end of the day they always ensured that all of the contracts were being followed and I was getting everything I wanted. Through this experience, these girls are so much more than just some wedding planners that I hired and will never talk to again now that the big day is over with, I can honestly say that these girls are and always will be my friends.
