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.”Sent on 11/03/2019

Carolyn did all the things
I am writing this review almost 5 months after my wedding, but better late than never! Carolyn came recommended from a friend of a friend. I actually spoke to a couple of wedding planners before hiring Carolyn, particularly because I live in NY and I needed someone that I knew could execute and would provide me the support that I needed. I will freely admit that I am not an easy client - I am type-A and detail-oriented. I also send way too many emails! What convinced me was that (1) Carolyn immediately had ideas and was exciting about planning, and (2) she explicitly she said she would make herself available for all of my questions via email and/or text. I had one wedding planner who told me that I would be charged based on the # of hours spent on my wedding.
Carolyn made my life much easier because she went above and beyond - she bought toiletries from a pharmacy for guests' use, painted crates for those toiletries, assembled our photo collage, handled all of our guest gifts (including customized shot glasses), made all labels, accepted deliveries at her home and those are just the details I can remember! She did a million of other things behind the scenes. She pushed back with vendors (including pulling someone in when we weren't happy with the wine list) and gave me suggestions about linens and where to save money. If Carolyn offered to do something for our wedding, she was never thinking about how much EXTRA to charge me. There were absolutely no hidden fees and she was just trying to have a happy bride. Carolyn helped me find vendors and would narrow down the list and guide me along the way.
Getting a wedding planner is not a cheap endeavor, but it was well-spent money when you just don't have time to look at every single detail. Carolyn even handled my dessert tasting. I really couldn't have done it without her and she always did it with a smile, whether or not I was being a pain that day, and always did her best to give me exactly what I wanted. Our wedding day was gorgeous and I have Carolyn (and her sister and all the other amazing vendors) to thank for that!Sent on 10/28/2019
All About Events's reply:I can’t even put into words how much your level of trust meant to me. Viviana, you deserve “all the things” and more!

Thee best wedding planner ever
We STILL have goosebumps and our guests are STILL raving a month later!! Before I ever got engaged or even met my husband it has always been my dream to "Just get dressed!" the day of my wedding along with my motto that the reception should be a PARTY to thank your guests for coming and celebrating with the Bride & Groom. MAN OH MAN is that EXACTLY what happened!! If I tried to plan it myself, or with ANY OTHER TEAM....I doubt it would've happened. It started with a telephone call. I received some interview questions from family and friends to interview possible wedding planners, since I don't live in the area and know who to really trust with my special day. I talked to approximately 5-7 different wedding planners in and outside of the New Orleans area. Carolyn was THE ONLY ONE who was personable, did not take the questions as an insult and told me that she would ensure that my day was PERFECT despite my budget. Throughout the process she ensured that when we came to NOLA for planning, our time was used wisely...I mean EVERY MINUTE!!! LOL Carolyn connected us to the BEST in the Business in New Orleans when it came to vendors, she kept me as close to my budget as possible (LOL as I did go slightly over because I wanted what I wanted LOLOL), and she also became our FRIEND along the way!! Not only did I love her, my husband loved her, my Mom and Brother loved her and my wedding party ADORED HER!!! She was open any time I needed something and went the extra mile to get not only what I wanted, yet also things I didn't know I needed!! She is even currently in a fight with the NOPD as I paid for three police to escort us during our second-line and only one showed!! She and her team ensured that we ALL felt special and that our wedding was definitely one for the record books....as our guests say... IT WAS EPIC!!! Even my money frugal husband said that it was the BEST MONEY we spent on our entire wedding (and he's cheap LOL)!! If you are looking for a bang for your buck, someone to ensure you cross all your T's and dot all you I's...look no further than All About Events!! Carolyn...Travarus and I would like to say... WE LOVE YOU and your team...and THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU bringing our dream to reality!! The Hortons...est. June 28, 2019!!Sent on 07/30/2019

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!
