WOW! WOW! WOW! Awesome pictures, awesome job, awesome person, awesome price AND AWESOME PERSONALITY! Crystal did everything we asked for and more for our wedding. She was very creative with several of the bridal party photos which made us laugh. She was booked for 6 hours and stayed 8. She even gave us 15 free Thank you cards as a bonus. I would definitely hire her again.

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.

Gold Rope Events and Kammi were outstanding in creating the perfect graduation celebration for my daughter! Kammi was very patient and accommodating throughout the entire planning process. I was planning a party in Virginia from Nashville,Tn therefore Kammi was my eyes and ears from a distance and looked high and low to find vegan deserts for my daughter and anything and everything I asked for, to include an affordable venue, DJ. and specialty caterer. PRICELESS!!!!She gained my respect and trust immediately and I could not have been more please with the end result. I highly recommend Gold Rope Event planner for all occasions if you are looking for a professional planner that is committed to excellence. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. RLG

We first met Tara with Simply Southern Weddings and Events in 2012 when I was planning a Christmas dinner for my large family. After feeling overwhelmed with the planning process, she stepped in and took over while keeping me informed of every last detail. I loved that she had linens, rentals and a great menu idea. I prepared the food and loved how she layed everything out so I could just set the food out. I have hired her every year since and look forward to what she has in store this year. I really wish I had found her earlier to have helped ease my stress sooner but love how she jumped in last minute and pulled it off with ease. I highly recommend her services.

Gary & Victoria Ogbonna were professional and attentive to our needs. They fit right in and were received well by all who visited the bar. They repacked leftover product into original packaging, making it easier for us to transport after our event ended. I would definitely recommend them and already have!

Penny and Lee did a wonderful job of consulting with us in advance of our party and taking care of our guests at a very busy event. They were very well prepared and organized, and everything was cleaned up and put away by the time they left. We could not be happier with the professionalism and quality of their work! Thanks so much!

Curtis was amazing to work with since day one! Very good communication and follow through! He also gives amazing suggestions and is great at what he does! I couldn't be more happy with our wedding day and a large part was because of how easy he made the process and made sure it flowed well and made sure everything was on time! I strongly recommend him to anyone planning a wedding or event! You won't be disappointed!

    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!!!

      Every time I have attended an event where Pat’s Katerin has catered the food, it has been nothing but fabulous. The food is always good and hot. A few of my favorites are the assorted cheeseballs, chicken salad, and macaroni & cheese. Their staff are very friendly, professional and accommodating.

      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.

      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!
