Luxurious Ideas and Detailed Planners..


We have an abundance of gratitude to Carolyn and Rhonda for making our day special. As soon as we met her, we knew we didn't want anyone else to handle our affair. Carolyn made us feel so at ease; we immediately knew we had to hire her. She helped put our entire wedding together and a timeline for all of our vendors and was our main point of contact before and on the big day. She helped us make decisions that were important to us. Since we are locals of New Orleans and are deeply rooted in our culture, they took care of every detail on our wedding day to implement the charm of our great city. They coordinated our wedding beautifully, from the venue layout to the ceremony setup; the entire wedding went by so smoothly that we didn't have to worry at all! We got to enjoy every moment of it.

Truly Impressed!

My husband and I were very anxious about planning our wedding from another state but with the assistance from All About Events, it was almost entirely stress-free. Carolyn’s attention to detail is absolutely astounding. Her thoughtfulness and organization completely put our minds at ease.

On the day of our wedding, Carolyn and her team were an essential part of getting everything done on time. It felt strange putting our big day into the hands of someone else, but it turned out to be the best decision ever! The ceremony and reception went off without a hitch. If any problems did arise then Carolyn made sure we were blissfully unaware! Lol

We are thoroughly impressed, and highly recommend All About Events for your big day and any other event that you want to be a success, they will not disappoint! Thank you!

A magical day for a wonderful couple - thank you, All About Events!

All About Events, you have once again outdone yourselves! As a first-time mom of the groom, I was nervous and excited but you all knew just what to do to help me enjoy every moment. Thank you so much for arranging the chauffeurs and black sedan caravan to whisk us from the rehearsal on St. Charles Avenue to the dinner in the French Quarter, we felt like rock stars! And I will forever cherish that mom/son dance at the wedding. Thank you, Matthew, for being there to comfort me when I became overwhelmed with emotion! I heard the bride’s family comment how grateful they were because they were far too busy the day of the wedding to decorate the venue and set it all up, transitioning from pre-wedding to ceremony to reception. Y’all did an amazing job. Here are some comments I overheard: “The Eiffel venue was beautiful”, “Decorations were killer”, “It all looked magical!”, “The kids area was a great idea.”, “The live music at the ceremony and the reception was incredible!”, “I want a playlist!”, “Can’t beat a real New Orleans 2nd line – the bride and groom’s umbrellas shone spotlights down on them!” And my favorite quote of the night: “Steven and Steph look so happy together.”

Carolyn and her staff are fantastic to work with. They are very creative and detail orientated. The room design she did for the wedding reception here was amazing, and was something we had never thought to do ourselves. It was a beautiful reception, and her and her staff were onsite the whole time from set up to break down. Great team! Wedding Favors
