Cassie and Pattye were so amazing to work with! Our wedding was a destination for us and we couldn't meet with them a lot so most of our communication was through the phone and email. They understood my designs and concept for our day and helped to make that happen! Both of them were very professional and very kind to me, my family and bridal party during the rehearsal and the wedding. Our ceremony was at the top of a mountain where guests had to ride the ski lift and then back down for the reception and they worked out the logistics of timing and getting people to where they needed to be without any hitch! I am so pleased with them and what they did for us to help the day run smoothly. The day ran perfectly and that is exactly what we needed them to do and they did it effortlessly. I did not worry at all during the day of because I knew they were on it and would take care of it. Thank you so much Cassie and Pattye you guys are awesome and I hope I can use you in the future for another event :) - Valerie Ouellette
Cassie and Pattye were both great to work with for our wedding day. From the start they were easy to work with, ensured we stayed on track with our planning, and were excellent liaisons between us and our vendors. We have no idea what we would have done without them on the day of our wedding. Not only did they set up our décor and helped run the rehearsal the day before the wedding, but the day of they made sure everyone was where they needed to be, coordinated with the vendor deliveries and set up, and ensured a seamless transition of the events throughout the day. We would highly recommend Take the Cake Events to anyone planning their wedding or next big event!
I cannot say enough about Pattye and Cassie, they are phenomenal. I really liked that they are a Mother-Daughter team. I also loved that they have great reviews on many different websites and were in my price range for a day-of coordinator. Which, by the way, they do more than just day-of coordination. They helped me every step of the way. I am a total DIY bride and I didn't need the whole she-bang but rather guidance, advise and the magic professional touch(I loved the stuff I had for my decorations but I didnt know how I wanted them set up.) I just provided everything and let them go with it. I knew I wouldn't be disappointed and I wasnt at all. They transforms my backyard venue space into something magical. Plus working with them was so easy. They were professional, they returned my calls and emails, and always offered to help me with tasks. They picked up deli trays for both the rehearsal dinner and the wedding. They totally ran the whole ceremony rehearsal, helped hook me up with a florist who had rustic log slices to rent for centerpieces, etc. I mean, they really went above and beyond, and while doing this, they were so friendly, kind, reassuring, encouraging, positive, creative, helpful and so many more words I can say to describe how awesome they are. I would recommend to anyone!! Thanks so very much ladies!!!
Cassie and Pattye helped make our Tahoe wedding perfect! We could not have been happier with them. They sent us monthly to do lists to keep us on track, provided help finding vendors as needed and coordinated with those vendors to ensure they were organized on the day of the event. It took so much stress off of our shoulders. I'm pretty sure they even arranged for 80 degree weather in Tahoe in October. Couldn't give these two a better recommendation.
We could not have pulled off our wedding without the help of Take the Cake Events! I would recommend Cassie and Pattye to anyone planning an upcoming wedding!
Here are examples of some of the services they provided that were incredibly helpful in putting together our wedding and executing it perfectly on the day of:
- Provided detailed checklists throughout the planning process to ensure we were staying on track with the needed action items
- Created an extremely thorough day-of timeline and consulted with us to ensure that they clearly understood all of the details on how we wanted the day to go
- Coordinated with all seven of our other vendors (DJ, photographer, florist, etc.) to ensure everyone knew where and when they were supposed to be on the wedding day (This was a HUGE stress relief for my husband and I)
- Ran our wedding rehearsal and helped us get our families and bridal party organized and prepared for the ceremony
- Made suggestions and gave professional advice based off their experience with other weddings and their impression of my husband and I as a couple
- Put in extra effort to learn about our venue and understand how we wanted the flow of events to occur in different locations throughout the wedding day
There were a ton of other things they did to make it all happen, these are just a few that stood out.
On top of it all, Cassie and Pattye were so supportive, loving, professional, and fun throughout the entire process. In the days leading up to the wedding (when we thought we would be the most stressed), my husband and I were actually calm and relaxed because we felt so comfortable that Cassie and Pattye had everything taken care of.
With the help of Take the Cake Events, we had the best day of our lives at our wedding.
We had our wedding in Tahoe this past summer and we honestly could not have pulled it off without the amazing help of Cassie and Pattye! Our wedding was absolutely perfect: beautiful, intimate, it was exactly what we wanted. We got married somewhere that isn't a venue. We rented a property (Kehlet Mansion, Meeks Bay) where you are permitted to throw any kind of party you want while staying there, so everything was up to us: every vendor, rental, logistical detail, and beverage. A lot of work. And we were planning from afar, as we live in the Bay Area. That’s why we were SO lucky to have chosen Cassie and Pattye, because they were so helpful to us every step of the way: keeping us on track/organized with frequent checklists, providing recommendations on vendors, answering any and all questions we had, and in general always offering to go above and beyond. They were so sweet and easy to work with, and made sure that every little detail that came up that might have stressed us out was taken care of. It was so amazing to have them be the central points of contact for all of our vendors, to mobilize and organize our wedding party, and manage the flow of the reception, so that we could relax and just have fun on our special day. They were always available, quick to respond, and devoted a lot of time to us. They met with us at our wedding site several weeks before the wedding to talk through everything in person and go over any last minute things. They also came all the way out for our rehearsal, which was 2 days before our wedding and during some pretty bad traffic along 89 due to construction (we felt so bad!) They were always patient, kind, and incredibly organized. We are so thrilled with everything they did, and they will always be part of the special memory of our wedding day. We cannot sing their praises enough, and we HIGHLY recommend them to anyone that needs any help planning their wedding. They are experts, and will make you feel like their most valued clients!
I would definitely recommend hiring Cassie and Pattye for any event. I hired them for my Reno wedding in July. I lived out of state and was only able to meet with them twice within the ten months of planning the wedding but was extremely happy I did. They were able to keep in contact throughout the months, give me recommendations, suggestions, and ideas. I was happy that there always seemed to be someone on my side and someone I could count on. The peace of mind I had in the months prior to the wedding was well worth the investment. My mom insisted that my family would be able to pull of everything by ourselves, but I wanted those important to me to just relax and enjoy the day. Cassie and Pattye paid careful attention to what we wanted and how we wanted it and was able to execute it on the day. They were able to coordinate with the vendors and even accommodate to the changes made during the wedding rehearsal and timeline on the day of the wedding. Any problems I had or anything I needed or my family needed on the day, I was able to just refer to the wedding planner. No regrets! Even my mom was happy. She even told me she was happy to have someone around who knew what was going on. They are a great team and oh so patient! Thank you so much for all that you did to make the day perfect and memorable. No regrets and would definitely recommend.
I am very happy with the decision to hire Take the Cake Events as our day-of wedding coordinators. They were very attentive throughout the planning process, and their regular emails helped produce a sense of calm as the day drew nearer. They helped us pull off an incredible event. One wonderful thing that stood out was their flexibility. Things come up on the day that you don’t plan for, but Cassie and Pattye were able to make quick decisions that found a solution and kept things running smoothly. For example, when we realized that we forgot flowers for the flower girl, they quickly made a cute bouquet of flowers from the cake table. No one ever knew. The complexities of our wedding venue made their job more difficult than most, and they worked very hard on the day to make it special for us. Our wedding was amazing. Thank you Take the Cake Events!!!!
y husband and I could not be happier that we chose Take the Cake Events to coordinate our wedding this past weekend. Cassie and Pattye are absolute experts at planning and putting on a wedding and they helped us throughout our wedding planning process and the day of our event in more ways than we can count. They took care of coordinating every little detail with our venue and vendors, developed our timeline, kept me on task with checklists and vendor recommendations, provided us with a dress steamer to keep my dress wrinkle free all day and night, set up and tore down the entire event, and even gave us a super cute wedding gift. When I was panicking the week before our wedding because I realized I hadn't arranged the childcare that I had promised for my guests, Cassie immediately sprung into action and provided me with multiple options for childcare professionals and even confirmed that they were available before giving me their contact info. They also provided me with so much encouragement in the last few weeks leading up to our wedding when the stress levels really started to peak, and their assurance that I had everything ynder control and well organized were extraordinarily helpful. Our wedding could not have been more amazing and Cassie and Pattye are responsible for a big old chunk of that. Thank you so much, Cassie and Pattye, for making our wedding planning as low stress as it could possibly be and for making our wedding so incredibly beautiful and fun for us. We couldn't have chosen better coordinators and truly love you!
I LOVED working with Cassie and Patty at Take the Cake Events. Our wedding was in Tahoe in August and I couldn't have chosen a better team. Cassie and Patty know the Tahoe area well and they were there to execute my wedding, rather than push their ideas on me and tell me what to do like other planners I met with. I loved talking with both Cassie and Patty and even though I chose the day of planning, they were available for questions throughout my entire planning process. They sent timelines and made sure all the to-do boxes were checked.
The day of the wedding we had some last minute logistic issues (we had to get a tent due to a chance of rain), but Cassie and Patty went with it and re-concepted my layout using their expertise. It turned out even better than I could have imagined. The rest of the wedding day was a breeze and if there were any issues I certainly didn't see any of it. I knew Cassie and Patty were there to handle it all!
My number one recommendation to any bride is to get a day of coordinator! It's the best money you'll spend!
Cassie and Pattye are truly fantastic to work with! They are extremely professional, kind, responsive and attentive. We hired this great mother daughter duo to coordinate our wedding (about 90 people) at the Gatekeeper's Museum in Tahoe City on 6/28/2014. They made everything go so smoothly. I didn't have a single worry on the day of the wedding thanks to their great communication and preparation. They worked so hard throughout the day setting up, transitioning spaces and then tearing everything down.
Leading up to the wedding they were so helpful with monthly timeline check-ins, answering random bride questions that I would have and were always available for meetings in person or on the phone. This was especially helpful as we were planning a destination wedding. Cassie and Pattye truly went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect.
I would HIGHLY recommend their services! They are competitively priced, easy to work with and know how to execute a great event!
We had the pleasure of having Take the Cake Events as our wedding coordinators! From the start they were so helpful and professional and we never felt pressured. The entire wedding process felt so smooth having them there to answer big and small questions and give us our monthly to-do list (we did the slice of cake package). The wedding day went off without a hitch and was more beautiful than we could have imagined. The services they provided were over the top including organizing our decorations, refilling the candy bar all night and much much more! We are so thankful for there great service!!!
I absolutely LOVED working with Cassie and Pattye. From our very first phone call Cassie was very flexible, professional, attentive, and friendly. They were both very professional yet always personal enough that I truly felt like I could trust them and lean on them when I was having my freak out moments. They went above and beyond to collect items for me, search for decor I couldn't find, print things, deliver things and the list goes on! The rehearsal and wedding day were both extremely successful and smooth due to their attention to detail and focus. I highly highly recommend choosing these ladies to plan your wedding!
Cassie & Pattye were absolutely WONDERFUL. They were beyond helpful and made the whole wedding planning process easy and stress-free. I would definatly say that we couldn't have done it with out there help and if I can give any advise to future Brides out there, let Take the Cake Events, Inc. help you with the planning! It can be overwhelming and stressful so don't try to take it all on yourself or you will go crazy! Thank you Cassie and Pattye for everything and helping making our day perfect and stress-free! You guys are the BEST!
Cassie and Pattye are a great Mother/Daughter team!! I felt VERY secure that our wedding day would go off without a hitch and it did!! There were a couple of things that didn't get done but only our Daughter and I noticed..... The ladies are very sweet, accomadating and always VERY responsive. It would definately be in ones BEST interest to hire this great team to take the worry out of your special day!!! Top knotch and very professional! Just can't say enough good things!!
We loved working with Cassie and Pattye. When we interviewed them it was evident that they wanted our daughter to have the wedding she wanted, and would help with resources to make all her ideas and plans happen. They were always there to answer questions or help with vendors. The best part for me, mother of the bride, was not having to worry about anything from the rehearsal through the wedding. I was able to enjoy the day worry free. They even checked with us after the wedding to make sure everything was returned or picked up. They were wonderful!!!!
Pattye and Cassie made my wedding day and the run up to it a breeze. They are professionals and were able to answer all of my questions, set my mind at ease, and offer plenty of recommendations and suggestions. Of all of the money I spent on my wedding day, I got the best value out of their services. I would highly recommend them to any bride marrying in the Reno/Tahoe region. Thanks ladies!!!
Both Cassie and Pattye are great to work with. For our wedding they provided the "day-of" services. On the day of the wedding I didn't have to worry about a thing; they set up everything and made sure everything and everyone were where they needed to be. They picked up the cake/cupcakes that morning and some extra flowers we needed last minute. Cassie Skyped with me for over an hour (I was planning the wedding from out of town), running me through all the details and answering any questions I had. Really, I am so happy that I hired Cassie and Pattye, and I would recommend them in an instant. There were only two little hiccups. One was that they only really included my photographer and DJ in the timeline discussions and coordination. I had to deal with the caterer, portable bathrooms, and actually the rental company, too, the day before the wedding. This wasn't a big deal, but it would have been nice not to have to do deal with vendors while I was trying to get ready the day before; I ended up being the phone point-person for basically all of our vendor deliveries the day before the wedding. The one other minor blip was the officiant they recommended (they gave us a couple options and we selected this one). He read the wrong ceremony, called my husband by the wrong name, read from a paper without looking up, and forgot to do the ring ceremony. Of course, this isn't Cassie or Pattye's fault. They have worked with him before and in the past he apparently did a great job. In the end, we laughed it off and it ended up being a beautiful ceremony anyway. Still, perhaps moving forward they might reconsider recommending him. Overall, though, we were so pleased on the day of our wedding with how smoothly things went with Cassie and Pattye. They did an amazing job setting up and cleaning up and making sure things went well. Thank you, both! We were really happy to have you be a part of our day!
The stress of wedding planning was reduced when we started working with our day of wedding coordinator. They were amazing and super helpful filling in all the details. So glad we ended up going with Take Cake Events!
This mother/daughter team is fantastic! We had a very organized and beautiful event thanks to them. I would highly recommend them to anyone planning a wedding!
Amazing team to work with! They take care of all the details and you just sit back and enjoy your day! Would highly recommend!
Cassie and Pattye were amazing!!! They were on top of every little detail that made our day that much more special. I made most of our decorations and they were able to put it all together the exact way I had pictured it. I would Highly recommend Take The Cake Events! Without them our wedding would not have been what it was, and it was for sure, our dream wedding! Thank you so much ladies!!
My husband and I were fortunate enough to win a grand prize provided by the Victorian House. A part of this package was the amazing Take the Cake Events. Cassie and Pattye were truly wonderful and we were (are) so grateful for them before, during, and even after the wedding. When Cassie and Pattye contacted me to see if we wanted their help, we were truly in need of it. We were having trouble with vendors responding. Soon after that, the trouble seized. They made sure we were constantly taken care of and on schedule. On the rehearsal day and wedding day itself, they were hard at work. They were involved with every detail and yet I barely saw them. I can't put into words how thankful we are. They both work great together and aren't overbearing like I have heard some coordinators are. If anyone is looking for efficient, creative, and generous coordinators, please use Take the Cake Events. I promise you won't regret it. Coming from someone who never thought I'd use or need a coordinator for our wedding, I am so happy we did. I don't know that our wedding would have turned out the way it did without them. Thank you Cassie and Pattye!
Pattye and Cassie were an UNBELIEVABLE team. They are so gracious, friendly and flexible. I hope to have another event/reason to work with them.
Pattye and Cassie did a great job planning our July 6th wedding! We used their full coordination services, "The Entire Cake", and they were fantastic throughout the whole process. They were great at coordinating not just the wedding but the meetings with the vendors prior to the wedding itself. On top of that, they always came prepared with great, creative ideas to make our event stand out. Planning the wedding was a breeze thanks to their help.
I have to say the best part was they were there the day of the wedding. If there were any last minute emergencies or problems, I wasn't aware of them in the slightest. From my viewpoint, everything went perfectly which meant I just got to enjoy the day while they did all of the worrying! My ceremony and reception were in two separate locations, so it was great that there were two of them to cover both spots. I highly recommend them!
