We were totally pleased and totally relieved that Meena of 5th Avenue Weddings was on duty for my daughter's wedding. We could relax! Everything went perfectly! She was a quiet, effective behind-the-scenes force that made everything happen smoothly and seamlessly. My daughter, the bride, was hoping to manage everything herself at the beginning of the planning. Given that none of us knew what we were doing, she agreed to getting some help and Meena saved the day! Since Meena now was coordinating everyone and knew about scheduling vendors and timing all of the traditions during a wedding, the rest of us truly could enjoy a very special event. Thanks for making it that way, Meena!

Meena and her team at 5th Avenue events helped me execute the wedding that I'd looked forward to! Meena was my moth-of/day-of go-to and I felt completely comfortable to enjoy my day without the stresses of last-minute detail. Meena took the time in the months before our wedding to really understand what my husband and I wanted for the event and she added in extra personal touches that made seeing our finished space for the first time very memorable!

I had a great experience with Meena. It was by far the best "investment" for my wedding. I wanted myself, my husband, all my friends & family to have fun & not have to be responsible for coordinating everything on my wedding day. It's already a very busy day for the bride/groom & an emotional day for friends/family so having to worry about things with our vendors was the last thing I wanted to place on anyone's shoulders. If anyone knows anything about events, nothing EVER goes 100% according to plan no matter how well you plan something in advance. Meena also took my decorations in advance so I didn't have to worry about transporting them on the day of. She held on to them long after my wedding was over so I didn't have to stress about how to get them back until after our honeymoon. I sent a few dozen emails (actually, probably much, much more) back & forth & she handled everything quickly & efficiently & gave great advice. She has a lot so feel free to ask about anything. I found out after my wedding that there were a handful of hiccups on the day of which made me even more grateful for having hired her. If she wasn't there, I think two of my vendors would not have been set up in time/according to plan & it would have been a disaster. My family adored her (she met with us at the hotel in advance so my family could be more comfortable with her) & my mom really appreciated how she took her & helped her with her temporary tattoos. I think it helped my mother feel more special. I really appreciate that extra touch. It never felt like I had a stranger at my event. Meena is very warm, responsible & helpful so it felt like having a trusted friend help & guide you. After spending so much money on all different aspects of your wedding, a little bit more $ goes a long way to keep all the loose ends together. I definitely recommend her to everyone. Meena knows what she's doing & I am happy that I trusted her with what has so far been the best day of my life <3

Working with Meena from 5th Avenue Weddings and Events was the best thing I did! She is a bridal genius and she is great at everything she does! At first, I wasn't sure about using a wedding planner but I can say in all honesty that I wouldn't have been able to do it without her. Meena was extremely professional, kind, creative, and dedicated to each and every detail. Her style is romantic, elegant, classic, modern...all rolled into one. Plus, she has excellent connections and relationships with some of the best vendors out there, and was even able to save us some money. She suggested our photographer, DJ, cake baker, and JP...I loved them all and had several people comment on how great they were!!

We discussed the vision I had for my wedding, and Meena took my suggestions and turned them into an amazing reality. We were able to add so many personal touches to our wedding that it really felt special to us. She is extremely professional and dedicated to what she does. Meena made my invitations and did all my flower arrangements, and both took my breath away. Literally, when I saw my bouquet I was speechless!! Not only did she work with our colors, but she incorporated textures into the linens as well that added to the ambiance of our wedding. These are the things I never would have done on my own!

I would recommend 5th Avenue Weddings and Events to any bride without hesitation. Meena made the whole planning process fun and exciting. I was never really stressed out and when I did get worried about something, Meena was there with 5 different back up plans or suggestions. I can't tell you how many people came up to me and said that our wedding was the best that they had ever been to! It was absolutely wonderful to be able to work with Meena and I consider myself very lucky to have found her. If you want your wedding to be unforgettable for everybody, Meena is the one to do it!

My wife and I were originally on the fence about working with a wedding coordinator since we had thought (incorrectly) that we could plan all the details of our outdoor "casual" garden wedding and need no assistance. We were wrong and couldn't have been more glad that we worked with Meena.

Meena was absolutely outstanding and helped coordinate our wedding day to make it flow as seamlessly as possible. She managed all the unforeseen details that arose, helped with set up and take down of the wedding decorations, coordinated with all our vendors, made sure the wedding was on schedule, and most importantly created an environment in which we and our guests could enjoy the wedding

I would recommend 5th Avenue Weddings without hesitation and especially Meena who is passionate, motivated and fantastic.

Meena of 5th Avenue Weddings and Events was extremely professional and helpful while I planned my special day. She was efficient in doing research for vendors, negotiating good prices and getting contracts written up for me. Meena is very talented in a variety of areas from flower arranging and creating invitations to decor for the reception. She helped me with my vision for my venue and I felt very comfortable and trusting that she would make it look beautfiful. She created a manzanita branch and orchid display for the escort table, a stunning candy buffet table, displayed beautiful lanterns throughout the venue, and added elegant overlay tablecloths. She put a lot of effort into the tinest details that gave our reception that extra special touch. Aside from helping me with planning and decor for the day of, Meena took so much pressure off myself and others while she coordinated and directed all of the activities on the day itself according to our wants and needs. She attended our rehearsal at the church, was at our venue early to set up, came to our wedding ceremony, and then went back to the reception to help out. She was everywhere we needed her to be including being there with her emergency sewing kit when my bustle broke. My family, myself and my husband were able to relax and enjoy our day because Meena was there to handle all of the details. We felt perfectly comfortable leaving it in her capable hands. She is experienced, has a strong sense of style and will work hard to make sure that your special day is everything you want it to be. We are grateful for all of her efforts that contributed to what was truly our dream wedding. Thank you, Meena!

I was referred to Meena by a friend who said how wonderful she was..and how much easier she made the day for the parents of the Bride so that they didn't have to worry about every detail.

In meeting with Meena and deciding to hire her....she did exactly what was promised...she really handled every detail no matter how big or small..she is a perfectionist..and really has an amazing vision. She really made the wedding run so smoothly..and went above and beyond...I had a vision...and she made it happen.....I would recommend Meena to anyone..she was amazing...sweet...hardworking..and I will use her in the future.

Meena was an absolute dream come true for our wedding on 10/6/2012. She was recomended to us only in August but we decided to call her and see how she might be able to piece together what we had done. Because of her we had the most beautiful wedding . She had wonderful ideas and she implimented everyone of them. She certanly made our day easier in that she spent the whole day and evening making sure everything we wanted was done. She organized everything for us even after the wedding reception was over. She packed up everything. I just cant say enough of how wonderful it was having her be a part of our wedding and how she made the day and days prior to the wedding an absolute delight.
