Working with Paul and Stephanie was a pleasant experience because they were very helpful, flexible and accommodating. They had no problem changing the menu or substituting platter to meet our needs. They also provided a bar tending service that was excellent. The food was good, presentation was good, they delivered what they promised. They are a good team. The suggestion I have is to go over the clean up part of the event with the clients so the client know what to expect at the end. Thank you guys for a great service.

The Great Surprisal was hired to be our event coordinator as well as serving as our emcee. This is an annual dinner/fundraiser for a small non-profit. Amelia worked with us from the beginning finding a caterer, hiring musicians, working with venue, coordinating volunteers for our silent auction as well as other parts of our evening. We increased our net income by over 25%! We had used the venue before but with the creativity and cost conscious Great Surprisal we had a totally transformed 'gym' from years gone by. Past attendees commented on the greatly improved environment, excellent food and the overall sense of a better-planned event. We will work with The Great Surprisal again and encourage others to do so. Last year we worked with The Great Suprisal as an emcee only. Customers should definitely check out 'Gina' as an addition to a party or event. We are very pleased with The Great Surprisal's work ethic and creativity of working on a limited budget.

Nola Nevers was a pleasure to work with. She helped to make our son's Wedding a very Special Event. Nola is very experienced and professional and was able to help us with all our event planning. I would use her service again.

I could not more pleased with the food and the professionalism of Chef Emme. In planning our corporate event for 70 people, she worked with us to create the menu that we wanted within the budget that we had available. Her professionalism was also top notch. I had not been able to secure chafing trays or enough canned heat to accommodate the order that I had made, but Chef Emme came prepared with extra supplies on hand to meet a need that I did not yet know I had. She even helped us set up the event and gave us invaluable advice on how to keep the food warm and delicious throughout our event. I highly recommend Chef Emme for her food, her service, and for the ease of doing business with her. It could not have been easier to document and pay our invoice, or to work with her on late changes.

Shelby, from Shine Event Design is absolutely amazing. My mom and I hired Shelby to do the overall design and floral arrangements for my wedding this October at Salish Lodge, and we were absolutely blown away by the service and results we received. My vision and preferences were entirely realized and Shelby is a gem to work with. She is very responsive, goes above and beyond to ensure everything is perfect, and she is comes up with beautiful, unique, and creative ideas. We were so impressed with everything she brought to the table, and know that my wedding would not have come together without her. Really I can not say enough positive things about my experience. I would 100% hire Shine Event Design for any future events I am in charge of.

Hiring Britta as our Day of Coordinator was one of the best decisions we made during our planning process. She was organized, professional and friendly. She worked well with all of our vendors to make our day run smoothly… seriously, there was never any crazy/wonky moment during the entire day. We never felt stressed on our wedding day, that was largely due to Britta’s calming and confident demeanor and the fact that she was always on top of everything. A million thanks, Britta!

Marshanell served as MC for trivia game, corporate event for my company and our customers. About 65 people. All went as planned. Met weeks before the event to discuss. They arrived at venue 2 hours before event to set up and make sure all A/V was working. The selling point for me was that they were able to personalize some of the trivia questions and I submitted questions about my company and they were mixed in with the other questions. I would hire her again for future events.

I contacted Joy on very short notice for a company Christmas party. She quickly furnished me with several great menus to choose from. We did a non hosted event, and I probably only had to interact with a total of 20 minutes to plan the entire event. The food was great, and the portions were very large. My employees were very happy. I absolutely recommend Joy Max Catering.

We decided to hire a wedding planner because my husband and I were completely clueless when it came to weddings. We wanted our special day to be easy for us and our parents, so we decided getting a planner was the best way to go. Many planners/companies ask for an exorbitant amount of money. Geri stood out to us because of her reviews and she had a totally reasonable price. We had a consult with her and knew right away that she fit our personalities. She's very personable and easy to talk to. We were totally intimidated by the wedding planning process and she made it really easy for us. She listened to all our ideas and was totally on board with some of our nerdy requests (like including Yodas and Ewoks in our center pieces). She had great ideas that really helped to capture our vision for our wedding day. She was never offended when there was something that we didn't want. She made our wedding day so easy (or at least as easy as you can make a wedding day, cuz you're going to be a little stressed no matter what!) She had everything set up at the venue and took care of all the break down. Neither me or my family had to worry about any of the clean up. All we had to do was show up and enjoy our day. She even helped take some of our stuff after the wedding and met up with us the next day to drop it off. Our wedding day wouldn't have been the awesome day that it was without her! We love Geri!

Mardee's Design and Consulting helped me put together my office's holiday event and it could not have gone better! Mary worked tirelessly to make sure all the details were in place and that everything fit within my budget by the end. Being a first-time event planner, I had next to no idea where to start but Mary was able to walk me through the process and create a vision of what would work best for my company within the unusual space we were using. I appreciated not only their professionalism but also their warm and generous support, which ensured that the whole process was a delight. Thank you again, Mardee's, for helping make our 2015 event a memorable one!

Food was good and they took good care of setting up, serving and cleaning up, which made it a lot easier for me!

Fitsum has helped me tremendously with my wedding planning. Our wedding is not until May, but I felt the need to give her awesome reviews because she is just great at what she does and I wouldn't know what we would do without her. My fiancé and I have never planned a wedding before, so we have no idea what we needed to do. We thought that since we are having a destination wedding then it will be easier to plan everything, but we were wrong. There was so much stuff we didn't know and Fitsum has helped us tremendously even with a short time frame of 6 months. She helped us plan our at home reception and we can just focus in our destination wedding. She is easy to contact and easy to work with. She always respond to my emails and questions within a day, not only that she gave us great recommendations and tips. She also helped us pick out and reach out to our venues. She definitely has help relieve a lot of stress prior to our wedding and I couldn't have ask for a better wedding planner. We highly recommend her to anyone that we know!

Margo has a wonderful combination of dreaming big, creating a vision based on identified needs, and connecting that vision to the specific tasks required for smooth implementation. She has a wonderful eye for design and fashion, is well-connected to artists and creators and was a pleasure to work with on our large, themed party. Margo has done everything from putting on a community-driven hip-hop fashion show to refining the ambiance details for a 1940's themed jazz event, to coordinating a flash mob, for MOHAI. These all turned out to be awesome events! Thank you Margo

We hired Snowrider Entertainment to DJ our wedding in Poulsbo. They did a great job! They came in and set up without any of our input or having to direct them. They provided a very stress free experience, and I can't think of a single thing that didn't go perfectly! Phil was very nice and professional. They did more than just play music. Phil helped us plan out the timing of each of the events of our wedding (dinner, dances, toasts, cake cutting, garder/bouquet toss, final dance), which was very helpful. When the day came and the events inevitably went a little off schedule, Phil was very flexible, and all the transitions and events went smoothly. I would highly recommend Phil and Snowrider Entertainment to anyone looking for a DJ and Master of Ceremonies for their wedding.

I cannot say enough about how great my experience was with Cherelle and her husband Igor. I had the lovely opportunity to work with Cherelle after finding her on Craigslist. With a very tight budget for our wedding I did not think I could afford a wedding decorator but decided to reach out to her and at least ask. She said she could work with any budget and definitely worked with mine. Throughout the whole process from start to finish Cherelle has been amazing! I am a very picky and indecisive person and Cherelle helped me find my vision for our wedding. She texted me very often her ideas and sent pictures of DIYs she did for our wedding. She even stopped by my house 3 days before the wedding to pick up extra flowers I had picked from my parents garden to use for the wedding since I could not exceed my budget for more floral and wanted bigger centerpieces. She never once made me feel bad about being on such a limited budget and instead helped brainstrom ideas to find alternative options to create my vision of the wedding. I loved how she responded very quickly to all my emails and text and really helped take a lot of weight off my shoulders. As a bride, I had so much on my plate, it was nice to have someone that was my go to person for the decorating. I received a great amount of compliments on our decor and am so blessed to have worked with such a passionate person who truly went above and beyond! Not only was Cherelle professional throughout the entire process, she is such a genuine person and made me feel like I was planning my wedding with a friend and just bouncing ideas off each other. She made the experience fun and it was so exciting to see the finished piece of art on our wedding day. Without using her services, I know my wedding would not have been as beautiful or even close to it. I highly, HIGHLY recommend her services. Even if you think it is not something you can fit into your wedding budget you will never know unless you ask. Thank you so much Cherelle and best wishes to you and your business!

Melody was so helpful in the planning of our florals and in the day of set up of our garland for our wedding! Everything looked wonderful and people keep telling us how much they loved our bouquets! My favorite part was the tiny pine cones she included in the groomsmen corsages!

Wow! I used Irie Events for a small dinner party that I threw for my friends. I had a modest budget for decor and I couldnt believe the results! The lighting, flowers, and food staging were stunning. I can't wait to throw a larger party!
