    With Strange Events, your wedding will be in great hands!

    It’s hard to know where to begin describing all the different ways Strange Events showed up for us. Renee and her team (HUGE shoutout to Wendy!) were a tremendous help throughout the planning process and the day of. Communication was always prompt – even during peak wedding season – and they consistently exceeded expectations, going far above and beyond everything agreed upon in our contract. Multiple people commented on how calm and relaxed I was on the big day and that was because I knew Strange Events was handling all the details that I would otherwise be worried about, and I completely trusted their decision-making. When it started raining a few hours before our outdoor ceremony and reception, Wendy worked with the other vendors to come up with a plan B which was executed so flawlessly, guests didn’t realize it wasn’t plan A! I strongly recommend Strange Events for brides and families looking for superstar, reliable teammates and peace of mind.

    Thank you Jesse!! It was so amazing working with you and glad that things all worked out for the rentals and rain plan!! :)

    Wedding planning made easier

    We at first were going to try to plan and carry out the wedding on our own. I do not recommend this unless you have been involved in this before or have experience planning large events. Renee was always there to help with any questions. Let us know what things we forgot or should at least think about was key. We had a day of coordinator, Carrie, that made the day seem flawless. I am sure there were some issues but none that I (The mother of the Bride) or the Bride ever had to concern our selves with. We were able to enjoy the day without having to worry about all the tiny details. Highly recommend

    Thank you Lynne! We loved working with you all! Congrats and well wishes for years to come! Cheers!

    Best Wedding Decision We Made!

    Hiring Strange Events was the best decision we made! My only regret was not having Melissa there longer! She was amazing! She solved so many problems that I probably still don't know about and kept things running smoothly. She made sure I was taken care of, constantly checking to make sure I was eating and drinking, and she was always moving whether it was working with a vendor or taking care of trash -she was on it! Prior to the wedding she and Renee were very communicative and made sure I had a timeline and a vendor contact sheet so everyone was in the loop. Fantastic company to work with! I heard about them from a friend and will definitely continue to recommend these ladies! :)

    Strange Events's reply:

    Thank you so much Kate!! It was a pleasure working with you and congrats again on a happy marriage!
