110% recommend!!

I wanted to give a huge shout out to Dom Martin, with Martin Gunderson Events, who was our wedding planner for our 20 year vow renewal last month. We had a great experience working with Dominic - he made the whole event stress free for us, and really handled all the fine details I would have never even thought of. Dominic was excellent at communicating with us all throughout the process from start to finish, was very patient, and provided great ideas along the way. Steve provided the flowers for the event, which were just stunning! On our big day, we had the nicest ceremony you could imagine. ♥️

We absolutely recommend them without hesitation! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Absolutely Amazing!

My Husband & I got married on 11.11.23, so just two days ago. He proposed in May and we started planning the wedding in June. I didn’t want a long engagement and thought since it was going to be a small wedding, it wouldn’t be too difficult to plan. My mom did most of the planning, I told her how I wanted it and she took care of it. I know a lot of brides want to do everything themselves, but I’m not good at that stuff and my mom could be a professional decorator/party planner, so I trust her. A couple of months before the wedding, my aunt asked my mom if we hired a day of coordinator. We didn’t even know that was a thing, but it was totally necessary. Someone at the hotel where we held the reception recommended Dominic at Martin Gunderson Events. We met with him in September (I think) and hired him on the spot. He was an absolute life saver and thought of stuff we didn’t even think of. He hooked us up with hair and makeup artists, who also did an amazing job! Dominic kept me in the loop with everything that was going on, we had a few phone calls the week prior to the wedding to go over the schedule and all the details, he took care of our rehearsal dinner reservation when we couldn’t get ahold of the restaurant, he literally did so much I couldn’t even imagine how chaotic it would be without him. Not only did Dominic take care of all the logistics of the wedding, the timing, getting the limo, transferring all the decor from the church to the hotel where the reception was, set up all the decorations at both the church and the reception room, etc, but he also was great for emotional support when we were having the pre wedding nerves. Also my bridesmaids and mom couldn’t figure out how to bussle up my dress, even after being taught how do to it multiple times lol, so Dominic was able to help with that. All the running around, last minute, unplanned things that came up, he took care of and made it look easy. I even forgot to add a couple to the seating chart, so he set up a whole table for them with decorations and everything and took care of it. I highly recommend hiring a day of coordinator l, even if you think it’s a small wedding, because it took so much stress off of us to take care of all the things that we didn’t have time to be dealing with on the wedding day. It didn’t feel like Dominic was a hired vendor, it felt like he was there as a friend. He was so sweet, professional, and on his p’s and Qi’s. He really knows what he is doing and he is REALLY good at it. I would recommend Martin Gunderson Events to absolutely everyone 100 time over. Thank you so much for making our day go so smoothly and be as perfect as we could imagine!

Amazing coordinator

Dominic Martin did my daughters wedding, and it couldn’t have turned out better. Dominic was a lifesaver and I would use him over and over again. Zero complaints whatsoever. I definitely recommend his services.
