I have nothing but kind words for Garnished-Events. Our original Day of Coordinator was unable to help with our wedding about two months before our wedding, and Garnished-Events luckily had availability. I could not be happier with working with them. Sheena was great, organized, and detail-oriented. She thought of things that never crossed my mind. It really helped me out, and it was great that she was able to run with all that I had planned for the wedding so far. She offered suggestions based on her experience, and I was grateful for it. She also had her team, Linda and Alondra with her. They were fantastic to work with as well! I highly recommend hiring her and her team for your event! You will not regret it.

Beautiful decor, bad communication

Let us start by saying that on our day, 3.11.22, decor was incredible. Everything was beautiful and as discussed, Garnished Events succeeded in the vision we requested. It was nice to see Sheena at end of the night and thank her for all her hard work on steaming the table cloths, customizing the pearl design on the napkins, and fulfilling our Great Gatsby theme, in addition to the stunning large white feathers. Wow. Nothing but compliments from the guests and us!

However, communication over the course of several months throughout the process was rough. We often felt like we were bothering them and often went weeks without responses — in addition to being told they were very busy and our wedding wasn’t until March, plus we weren’t their “full bride or client/ couple” since we only paid for decor. The evolving aspect of the bill was also confusing, but when they did explain it, it was helpful.

While there were some personal situations outside of their control that impeded timely communications, we felt overall that communication wasn’t great. Email can come
across snarky, but if said with the right tone and message, can make all the difference. That would be our best recommendation for Garnished.

In addition, we booked this vendor 10 months before our wedding (May) — only to be called a few months before and told we were not in their service area. They found a solution that was no cost to us, but we were very stressed much of the time because it was a huge red flag.

At the end of the day, our wedding turned out beautiful. So thank you for that. Wishing Garnished and team the best.

The communication was hit or miss and often delayed. I was disappointed by the lack of professionalism and quality. Things that were discussed did not appear on the invoice and I was blamed -- this is not good customer service. The attention to detail was lacking and the items I rented were overpriced. I would not recommend this vendor.

Event & Wedding Planner

As an event and wedding planner, I’ve been able to center in on my passion for helping clients create truly fantastic and memorable experiences for their guests. There is nothing more satisfying than knowing my services made my clients’ day better.

I'd say the passion has been engraved really early on in my life through watching my father paint & draw, though I can't physically do both, and in helping him pick palettes.

From your pastels, to vibrant colors, they all catch my eye and burst inspiration through my mind.

I absolutely adore trying new things and going outside of the box to puzzle in the grand picture.

As a bilingual event & wedding planner I also pride myself in inclusion and will be thorough with you each step of the way.

I look forward to learning more about you, and bringing your vision to life!
