Rosemary & Matt
Don’t usually write many reviews but this is one review I find especially important to write as it involved one of the most important days for my husband and I — our marriage!
We were looking for a day-of coordinator to help with our ceremony (including rehearsal), running the ceremony music and reception as well as setup for party size of 150 at DoubleTree in Monrovia. Because we were budget conscious, we didn’t think we needed help and were planning on delegating duties to our friends (which in hindsight, probably would not had been a great idea).
Found Pink Martini through word-of-mouth. Met with Grace for a 1 hr consultation at our house with what we envisioned for our wedding. She was detail, flexible, organized, easy to talk to and provided recommendations to us without feeling forced. We also needed help looking for a non-denominational Wedding Officiant and Grace and team (Rebecca & Jennifer) delivered!
After our consultation, majority of our communication occurred via email and sometime FaceTime. We greatly appreciated the flexible schedule as both my Husband & I often times get off work late.
On the day-of, Grace, Rebecca & Jennifer arrived promptly and naturally jumped into their roles. All the set-up was completed beautifully and the way we had expected. The communications between them & our Catering Director, Banquet Manager, 2 Photographers and Emcee/DJ were seamless. We (and our guests) were happy how everything was so organized and completed with professionalism.
Speaking of professionalism, during the early part of the reception, we were approached by Grace informing us of a couple who potentially were wedding crashers as their names were not on the list! Thought these only occur in movies! In any case, the entire incident could have caused a huge scene but everything was handled smoothly with DoubleTree’s security team.
The entire day went by so quickly and smoothly. This was definitely all due in part to the organization and help of the entire Pink Martini team! Thank you, Ladies for taking great care of us including handling all those surprised situations with such expertise! Until next time!
