    If you're on the fene, do it! So worth it!

    If you're on the fence, hire a day-of coordinator--you won't regret it! We were contemplating not hiring a day-of coordinator because all of our other vendors (reception venue, church, & DJ) were super helpful, but we are SO happy that we ended up doing it! It was so nice to be able to sit down with Susan beforehand to talk through our vision for the big day and review any details that we may have missed, and her execution day of was flawless. She was always on top of communication with us, and it was a relief having her as our main point of contact to coordinate all details with all of the other vendors, as well. We said this to her many times throughout our wedding day, but we felt instant comfort whenever Susan would appear because we knew she was on top of everything and keeping the day flowing smoothly! It was especially helpful to have her helping out since we had different locations for getting ready in the morning, then moved to the church, then photos, then finally the venue reception--while each other vendor was awesome for each of their parts and also helped keep us on track, having a day-of coordinator to act as a quarterback for all of the moving pieces was so helpful and we couldn't be more grateful for Susan and team.

    Superior Event Planner

    Leanne Valdes, owner and coordinator of You Name It Events, was fantastic. We utilized her Day Of Event Services, that included everything that needed to be done one month before the wedding. Included was advice, referrals, follow-up with vendors and on-site coordination. I am the Mother of the Bride and have had party planning experience with other events that I hosted but the services that YNIE, provided were exceptional, allowing me to enjoy my own daughter's wedding. Leanne was knowledgable with protocol, assessing the amounts of food and drink correctly, and addressing needs as they were presented. She and her staff were professional throughout the entire process. Most importantly, she listened to what we wanted to do and did not insist on changing things to her liking, as other planners do. If she thought that something needed to be done another way, she let us know so that we could decide. I would definitely use her services again and recommend her services.

    Flexible & responsive!

    We didn’t actually end up having our wedding the way we had planned due to covid but Leanne was amazing every step of the way. We had multiple FaceTime calls on how to make our plans work despite a global pandemic. She’s organized, and friendly. We would definitely hire her again next time we plan a party.

    Leanne is absoluteley amazing! We have worked with "You Name it " in a few ocassions. Everything was perfect coordinated. You Name It team was very discret but very helpful in the same time. We totally recommend them to any wedding that want to be a succes!!

  • Paramount's Meyer Ballroom Banquet Halls

    You Name It Events was recently the planner for a wedding at our Paramount Theatre wedding venue. After working with several coordinators for various events, I was extremely impressed with Leanne and her team. The amount of attention they gave to the client, and every detail, was absolutely amazing. There was not a situation they could not handle flawlessly. I was also surprised that Leanne was so integrally involved early in the planning process and was assisting the couple from their first site visit! She has a wealth of knowledge about the industry and really goes the extra mile for her clients. Leanne is a thoughtful and caring wedding planning professional and we cannot wait to work with her again!

    We first met Leanne when she was hired for a friend's wedding and was reviewed as, "the best money spent on the entire wedding". Now, we work together as often as possible! Leanne and her team are incredibly attentive, organized, and professional. Leanne is an absolute master at event coordination, and her craftiness really makes her productions extra special. Her integrity, and dedication to her clients have impressed us again and again. We love YNIE!!
