Best Money We Ever Spent
Wow, where can I even begin? Vanessa was the best money my wife (!!) and I have ever spent. Backstory- we’re both physicians who got engaged 4.5 years before our wedding and waited 3 years to start planning because we are busy, lazy, and had only very vague visions when it came to planning. Vanessa came along and not only did she make our dreams come true, she turned them from very blurry, nonspecific dreams into clear, perfect reality.Sent on 04/22/2019
She is extremely organized: we told her at the beginning that we wouldn’t be good at keeping on task, what with our busy schedules. She kept us on task and everything was always done on time, in spite of us often dragging our feet or having limited availability. This was often because:
She goes above and beyond. She would run to the marriage license bureau for us, pick up all the alcohol for us, return the leftovers, and a bunch of other things that I can’t remember because Vanessa just took care of it. She clearly worked nights and weekends for us, which as doctors, we can appreciate.
She was super flexible: she met us wherever, whenever. She was ok with Venmo for lots of things which made things super easy. When we would decline the first set of options (venue, photo/video, flowers), she would look for more and not make us feel bad/guilty about it.
She is a great person: Vanessa really became our friend in this process. When other people stressed us out about not knowing our colors yet, etc, she reassured us. On the day of the wedding, she ran a smooth, but tight ship. Our photographer and videographer said she was the best wedding planner THEY’D ever worked with- she kept them updated as to the schedule because she knew photos and video were important to us, which our photo/video people said not all wedding planners do. All of our families loved her.
We really gave Vanessa very little in the way of direction or help, and she still gave us our dream wedding. At the end of the night, I (half) jokingly thanked her for letting us attend her wedding. In short, I could not recommend a better wedding planner in this life or the next. I’m almost regretting writing this review since we are actively handing out Vanessa’s info to everyone we know getting married and I want her to be available on their dates. She really is the best.
Little Black Book Events's reply:Oh my goodness!!! I told you not to make me cry! It was great getting to know you both during the planning process. Thank you for trusting me to make it happen. Seeing the two of you totally in your element on your wedding day was the best thing ever!

On The Ball!!!
Vanessa and Little Black Book Events seamlessly transitioned into the role of our day-of coordinator. She was responsive, showed initiative, and demonstrated her expertise in attention to detail. Many of our guests lauded our wedding as the best they had ever been to. We highly recommend her for your wedding and other events!Sent on 05/03/2019
Little Black Book Events's reply:Your wedding was pretty awesome. :) Thank you so much for the kind words. Your bridal party ceremony entrance was hands down the best I have ever witnessed! Thank you for letting me play a small part in your special day.

Vanessa is a joy to work with!
Vanessa was fantastic to work with! We hired her for day of wedding services and she made our day stress free. We met with Vanessa a couple of times before our big day and she was happy to send over recommendations for vendors and point us in the right direction. The day of everything moved smoothly and we didn't feel the need to follow up with Vanessa once. She had everything under control and exactly how we had envisioned/expected. It was almost like she wasn't there (in the best way possible :))!!Sent on 09/11/2019
Vanessa was such a pleasure to work with. She was calm and professional. Our wedding had a couple of obstacles where the ceremony was outside and it was rainy day and we had to come up with another plan for the ceremony. Vanessa worked with the client and the venue to provide us the perfect solution for an indoor ceremony. Would love to work with Vanessa again!
Working with Vanessa was absolutely delightful. Vanessa is extremely professional and so easy to work with. I would strongly recommend Little Black Book Event Services to all of my clients who are looking for an organized and accommodating event planner.
Vanessa and her team are a great pleasure to work alongside! Any occasion will be in good hands with Little Black Book event services.
