Candi and her team at Block Events was an absolute pleasure to work with for our recent outdoor wedding. They over-delivered on our expectations, and made our wedding day more enjoyable and stress-free than we ever though possible! We knew we wanted a day-of coordinator to take over all logistics on our wedding day, but we got so much more in the process. Candi was available from our initial meeting right through our wedding – something we didn’t expect in a day-of coordinator. She answered any ongoing questions or concerns we had in the months leading up to our wedding day, made excellent vendor recommendations, and was incredibly patient with our last minute logistical changes as we worked with the fall weather in the Pacific Northwest. With multiple meetings and conversations before our wedding, she put us at ease with her professional yet personal approach. On our wedding day, Candi and Amy were a super force! They transformed our outdoor venue into a beautifully composed destination that exceeded our expectations in every way. They have an eye for detail, and ensured that our every need was met – including those things we never thought about! We are sure that there were many things that Candi and Amy did behind the scenes that we never even realized. From pre-ceremony assistance, to personal attention, vendor and guest assistance throughout the evening, the whole team at Block Events worked incredibly hard to make our wedding unbelievably memorable.Sent on 12/20/2018

100% Would Recommend!
Candi and her team at Block Weddings & Events (formerly Thrifty Events) far exceeded my expectations. Candi was so personal and genuine, but at the same time extremely professional and confident. She listened to me and my fiance, and offered suggestions based on her previous experience with clients. All pre-wedding communication was easy and prompt. She even recommended a few of our last vendors when I was stuck on who to choose, and each of her recommendations were amazing! One of my favorite things was during our venue walk through a week prior to the wedding, the first thing she asked me was "what are you concerned about?" I loved that. I was able to talk about the things keeping me up at night, and we immediately came up with a plan for what to do. After those 5 minutes, I was able to enjoy the walk through and be in the moment instead of waiting to bring up one of my little worries.Sent on 12/19/2018
On the day of our wedding, she and her assistant worked so fast and efficiently! To my knowledge, everything went completely perfectly without any troubles! Who knows if that's actually true, but it's a testament to Block Wedding's professionalism and poise with our other vendors, guests, and our families! I couldn't have been happier to work with Candi, and would 100% recommend her business to any couple getting married.

Book Block Weddings & Events for Coordination Services!
Candi from Block Weddings and Events was fantastic to work with! We found her during the Snohomish Wedding Tour while we were browsing for a venue in 2017. Even though we were only using the day of coordination services, Candi was always available to answer questions, offer advice and guide us in the right direction while we were planning. She even was so nice to offer and hold all our decor and miscellaneous items in her garage before the big day so us or our families didn't have to worry about transporting everything. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day and we couldn't be more thankful to Candi and her team in helping us execute what we envisioned!Sent on 12/20/2018

Candi with Thrifty Events is a dream to work with! She is well grounded and knowledgable in all that she does. While working with her as a vendor she communicated well and often. She was a great representative for her clients and communicating their needs. Party on the Rocks can't wait to work with her even more!
I had the great opportunity to work with Candi from Thrifty Events at a July wedding. Candi took the time to talk with me about the day of the events to make sure we were all in sync. It's great to ensure we were all on the same page and kept in constant communication throughout the event. Candi was great in paying attention in details and I enjoyed the collaboration. I definitely enjoyed working with her and her professionalism. I hope I get the chance to work with her in the near future.
