I honestly don’t know what I would’ve done without, Ted. Starting from the consultation, Ted truly went above and beyond to bring my husband and I’s dream wedding to life. We are super indecisive and Ted was able to help us brainstorm and create a vision for the wedding. From picking the venue to all of our vendors, Ted was only a call or text away when we had ANY questions. Ted went above and beyond during all of our milestone moments. Just to highlight a few, during my wedding dress fitting he knew I was SUPER into Harry Potter and brought me snitch donuts and champagne. Also, during the wedding weekend, Ted ensured that we had all of our needs met and gave us a one of a kind experience with all day surprises. I cannot stop singing his praises! If you want your wedding and the planning process that comes along with it to be a one of a kind experience I HIGHLY recommend, Ted Martinez Event Planning.Sent on 08/14/2018

Ted Martinez is, hands down, the best event planner we could have hoped for. We worked closely with Ted for over a year and a half to plan the wedding of our dreams… and WOW! He is extremely flexible and accommodating. He arranged vendor meetings on weekends that we selected (which he consistently attended, even if it meant driving several hours in a single day), set up phone calls with vendors in the evening when it was convenient for us, and even traveled out of state so as to set up a “face time” meeting between me, a vendor and himself when I could not personally attend the meeting. He consistently provided a variety of unique ideas relating to every aspect of the wedding celebration, including designing a wedding invitation with a custom laser cut front flap containing a lace design that matched the lace on my wedding dress—it was like each guest received a piece of my dress lace! Ted always goes the extra mile for his clients and their guests. When a family member suffered a health issue prior to the wedding that made it such that she could no longer attend, Ted arranged it so that she could watch the rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony and reception by video (in real time!) from the comfort of her home! Ted is passionate about his career as an event planner, is incredibly talented, and is a pleasure to work with. Our wedding was everything that we dreamed it would be and more—and within our budget too! My husband and I—and our families—consider ourselves very lucky to have found Ted and will always look to him for our event planning needs. Ted and his team are, without a doubt, the best in the industry and one of a kind. After your event—be it a wedding, bachelorette party, birthday party or other gathering—comes to its conclusion, you’ll look back on it with pleasure and just think, “WOW!!!!”Sent on 08/20/2017
Ted Martinez had it down pat when it comes to your special day. I've seen him in action many times and he never ceases to amaze me at what he does. He whole team is on the ball from start to finish. They are true professionals at what they do.
one of the best in the area
As a disc jockey for some of the area’s top entertainment companies since 1998 and then in 2002 launching Above Sounds, I have been fortunate to have worked with many wedding planners including Ted Martinez Event Management. Ted and his team have always been exceptional in the fact that he is able to bring his World travels and incorporate ideas beyond the cookie cutter traditions in order to add that “Wedding Wow” factor to your event to make it unique to you on your special day.
