    The best wedding planner ever!

    Wow. Adrien was *fantastic* and we can't recommend her highly enough. She had the entire day fully under control, and my wife and I were able to just relax and enjoy the show. In addition to the amazing planning, Adrien responded immediately to any unplanned minor hiccups both quickly and effectievly. She delivered us the wedding of our dreams...It was so reat, we'd like to do it all over again ;)

    Thanks, Adrien!

    Amazing wedding planning services

    Adrien was the best wedding planner a bride could ask her on her wedding. Her services were top notch and she was always responsive, caring and had great attention to detail.
    Our wedding day was the best day of our lives and RSVP events helped make that possible.
    Everyone has told me it is one of the best weddings they've been to and how beautiful the decor was.
    I thought everything went perfectly and I couldn’t recommend Adrien or this company strongly enough.

    Simply the BEST!

    When our son and his fiancée first started planning their wedding, we told them step #1 was to hire Adrien and RSVP. She helped with our daughter's wedding in 2018, and we don't want to do a wedding without her. Adrien knows how to work through all of the details of the day, set a beautiful table, recommend excellent vendors and confirm all of the specifics with them, corral all the people and keep them on schedule, work with a wide variety of personalities, navigate tricky situations, read the crowd and keep the event running smoothly, AND--most importantly--be absolutely lovely and professional through it all. She has a cheerful "can do, no problem" attitude about everything and is the consummate professional who goes above and beyond in every way. Adrien is an absolute joy to work with and will be the best money you spend in planning your special day.

We have had the pleasure working with RSVP Events on many many occasions mainly for weddings. Every planner at RSVP Events that we have worked with are very helpful, professional, organized, and fun to plan with. They help guide the bride/groom throughout the whole planning process and into the actual wedding day. As a DJ, a portion of our job is to help run the night as well so we need to have that constant communication throughout every event. If you are looking for a hands on service RSVP Events is the planning service to hire!
