Testimonials – Praise From our Clients

Here’s what our clients are saying about The Events Department:

  • I am just so very grateful for all of your help with our wedding. (And Marko is too!!!).  As you remember, I was a little hesitant about using the Events Department’s full services.  And now I just look back and laugh.  I can’t imagine our wedding without you or your fabulous team.  From the small details to your ability to say yes to my last minute requests, I felt like no matter what you were going to make sure that Marko and I had the wedding we envisioned from the beginning.

    I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews from ALL our guests to how great the venue looked to how smoothly the entire night went.  And it truly did!  Marko and I look at our pictures with such tremendous fondness (and there’s not a single picture with a worried look on my face).  I was able to really enjoy the day and “be present” during the ceremony and reception because of all you had covered.

    I wish you so much success ahead.  I will recommend you to ANY couple even considering hiring a wedding coordinator.

    I will forever remember our wedding as one of my best days.  And I know that you were instrumental in making that happen.

  • I just got back online which is why you haven’t heard from me since I got to LV.You know, you are really excellent. You continue to amaze both of us.Your calm harmony and exceptional interpersonal skills, your network of universally admiring vendors and clients (very well deserved as far as we can tell), your professionalism, knowledge, experience, your incredible generosity, and finally your loving nature, are all so exceptional, Laurie. We are wondering what we did to deserve to have you on our team or to even know you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Your impact has been essential.Thank you!!!!!

  • I wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you to your entire incredible team last weekend!  Our wedding was a dream and all of the vendors were amazing.  Lisa was so incredibly helpful and we were so grateful for her!  And the event at the O’Donnell golf course wasn’t an issue at all!

  • Thank you so much for your email!  The wedding turned out beautifully and we were really lucky with the weather.  I didn’t think it was too cold at all and most of the guests seemed comfortable (the heaters really did their job).Also, I wanted to take a moment to say thank YOU so much for all of your guidance and assistance over the past few months.  You have been so nice, so patient and so knowledgeable throughout this whole process and I can’t tell you how grateful I am for your assistance in planning this event.The O’Donnell house was an absolute dream venue and my wedding day truly was the very BEST day of my life.  Thank you again for your help in making my dream day possible.  I will shoot over another email with a link to pictures.

  • We will never begin to ever thank you enough for all your help this past year! You truly were my saving grace in planning our wedding. It was the most special day of our lives, and we owe most of that to you! We wish you all the best in the new year!

  • Thank you for all your help & the many months of planning you put into our wedding. Our day was just as we had imagined. It really meant a lot to us to have you there every step of the way. Your true professionalism gave us & our families a sense of calm throughout the entire weekend. We would also like to thank your assistants for all of their hard work as well. We truly enjoyed every moment & detail of our wedding. We hope you were able to enjoy the event as well. Hope we weren’t too much of a burden..

  • I’m back in my heels at work…reality hit and it all seems like a dream.

    Wedding guests have been so complimentary and the bride and groom seemed to have more than enjoyed their day at the O House.  Megan cried all the way to Maui.

    I tried to inhale every second there and truly loved it…including the palm trees.  The candles were also a terrific touch and chimes in the city must have started at 5:30.  Timing was perfect.  The overall affect with that view and the setting was indeed magical.As to the ceremony, maybe I told you this, but when I asked Mike how he would like me to address him in the proper way  – he said “either your holiness or Mike”…what a great guy!  And, that might be my only regret…not recording his message.  Incredible!  The very best service ever of any kind.The staff and hospitality and food were outstanding…when I was talking in the dining room holding my dessert that was listing on my plate, one of the servers offered to take it to my table…that doesn’t happen at home.  And, the DJ did a really nice job with music and announcements.  And, flowers?  WoW!!!  Absolutely amazing!  I will follow-up with Mary, for sure.I really can’t thank you enough for just the best time of our lives.  It was simply wonderful and I so enjoyed working with you.

  • Now that the dust has settled and each day is just another boring day without a panic call from a nervous Bride-to-Be (hoping for a Monther-to-Be!!); I wanted to thank you and Lisa for a great job and outstanding service and recommendations. It’s no wonder the vendors we spoke with had such great things to say about you.It was a fantastic wedding weekend … and while i will never use your services for another wedding I will certainly recommend you with the highest regards. And if ever needed, feel confident to list me as a reference

  • Thank you so much for all you did to make John and Briana’s wedding so wonderful!  The had the most amazing weekend and it was all thanks to you.  Your team was incredible and we will forever be grateful to you!  Happy Holidays!

    Emily
  • I just want to thank you again for all your behind the scenes efforts. Liz and Az had a great party.  We could not have done it without you.  I know I could have never dealt with the myriad of issues and retained my sanity. You and your staff are terrific!  As threatened last Saturday evening, when the heat of the summer slows things down a little let’s plan to have dinner.
