109 Reviews for Mindy & Co. Events
Trustworthy reviews are our priority. Businesses can't pay to change or remove reviews.
We hired Mindy as our day-of wedding coordinator for our Indian/Filipino/Salvadorean/New Orleanian NYE wedding of 450 guests. We had to do our homework beforehand in terms of arranging our vendors and all the main details. A couple weeks before the wedding, we started to discuss with her what we had in mind and she took it from there. Mindy was the glue that kept our wedding running smoothly. I cannot imagine what it would have been like without her. She went above and beyond what was required in order to make the weekend memorable. What stood out was her calm and cool demeanor in the face of what felt like utter chaos at times. She handled 2 days complete with a full Catholic mass and Mexican buffet lunch, an early morning second-line style Baraat with a live band, a 2 hour long Hindu Ceremony with lunch reception, a cocktail hour and reception that lasted until 2am, and my groom becoming ill and requiring some last minute schedule changes. Amazing! In the midst of all her other duties, however, she still made it a priority to check on us and make sure we were fed, that we had drinks in our hands, and that we weren’t worrying ourselves with wedding details. We even had wedding guests tell us how they appreciated her attentiveness to detail and her seemingly superhuman ability to be in so many places at once. It’s the kind of work ethic that certainly shines, and I know the wedding was a success because of it. We would recommend her for any type of event, because she can handle it and turn it into something truly special. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Mindy!
My husband and I hired Mindy as our day-of coordinator almost a year in advance. She had glowing reviews and in the beginning, we were sure we made the right decision. However, 10 days leading up to our wedding, we decided to explore other options for a wedding coordinator. Before I go into the reasons why, I do want to acknowledge that we only hired Mindy as our day-of coordinator so we did not expect her to be involved during our wedding planning process. Also, there is definitely no personal ill will and we wish Mindy and her sister, Teri, the best. Even after our decision to pursue another wedding coordinator, we were not planning on leaving negative reviews. We knew she had an illness she was dealing with and we completely understand that things come up in life. However, we are leaving this review because Mindy and Co. Events did not even bother to respond back to our final email respectfully asking them about their cancellation policy.
Here are the reasons why we decided to not move forward with her:
Follow-through: There have been numerous times when Mindy would offer or agree to help out with something, and there would be no follow-through. Again, since we originally only hired her as our day-of, we also wanted to make sure we compensated her fairly for any extra services she provided us. We would send follow-up emails to check on the status and receive no responses from her. We understand that she is very busy and some of the items she offered to help us with were out of scope, but it's the communication about those items that have left us feeling dissatisfied. If there were something that could not be done, or there were insufficient time to address our questions, a short note/update would have sufficed.
Unreliable communication: She would also miss scheduled calls.
If you are having a wedding at Calamigos-- Mindy is your gal. My husband and I hired Mindy & her team for our full-time wedding planner. We signed on with her about 9 months prior to our wedding date, soon after we signed at Calamigos and she was well worth the $$. Now most brides think they can do it all. I thought I could do it all... yea, no... I couldn't. Mindy is the BEST. She had a lot of vendors to choose from and they were able to work with in budget--and helped us to save some money. She asked the awkward questions for us, and really made us feel at ease. She texted us back in a timely manner, made sure we stayed on scheduled, kept us fed during our wedding, and laughed at our terrible jokes... Mindy went the extra mile and we are so happy we hired her for our wedding.
