    A Starr Events Is Amazing!

    We used A Starr Events for a 50th Birthday party and from the consultation, coordination, and most importantly the execution of our party was absolutely flawless.
    We dealt directly with Anita the Owner and she was the perfect combination of super friendly and consummate professional. We gave her a rough outline of what we had in mind and she put our vision into action.
    Anita had great ideas and suggestions and as soon as you talk to Anita you will feel all of your party planning stress melt away as she takes the reigns and puts everything together with zero stress - she is Super Professional (Super sweet as well!). Basically she listens and then it’s like ..
    “I Got This!”
    Thank you Anita for making our 50th birthday party special and better than we could ever have dreamed of!

    Anita was the best!!

    Let me tell you first and foremost that a wedding event coordinator should fall with as much priority as obtaining all other vendors i.e caterer, photographer, florist AND wedding event coordinator.

    About 4 months before our wedding I realized I needed help!! While the knot is great, the ability to pull everything together while planning and enjoying wedding festivities I.e bridal shower, Bachelorette, invites, etc., consider a wedding coordinator will be key towards the end as deadlines are piling.

    We were lucky enough to get Anita late in the game just about 4 months before our wedding. Our hesitancy to be honest was money, however Anita was able to modify her services with my budget. I was able to complete most of the pre planning activities with her focusing on ensuring all vendors understood our theme and timeline for the wedding day. Anita helped us think about things that we hadn’t thought to ensure our day would be amazing! I would also encourage couples to think about the day of and the day before and how great it was for us to be able to go to rehearsal dinner and prep for wedding day and know that we were such great hands!

    My reception was at our family’s private ranch. While I was lucky to not spend money to rent a venue, it’s important to know that even if you are organizing events at a private home or property that you will need to consider who is coordinating this event. Anita helped make our dreams come true with securing our vendors and making sure everything went well on our day.

    The day after our wedding my husband and I were talking about how all in all Anita as our wedding event coordinator was a total must, and she was well worth it! Anita helped ensure that our wedding day went so smooth and kept us on track. Most importantly, our parents and family were able to enjoy our event rather than working it. While our family helped a lot leading up to the event having Anita and her team made sure our day was so perfect!

    For those thinking they can’t afford a coordinator consider this, on such a special day that goes by so fast, have the help of someone that can make your day a breeze. Anita and her team made our day so amazing and we got such great comments from our guests!

    We are so grateful for Anita and I would HIGHLY recommend her as an event planner!

    A STARR Events's reply:

    Kayla, thank you for your kind words! You were so easy to work with and I miss you already!
    It’s always sad when my wedding season ends for the winter..you were my final wedding for 2019, I enjoyed meeting your family and friends-what a great group of guests!
    Your vendor team and our smooth timeline allowed for a perfectly executed day- the Mariachi band was a special treat- a few of their songs brought tears to my eyes!

    Thank you for finding me, it’s clients like you who make my job fun.

    Best Wishes to you and Andrew!
    Much Love,
    Anita
