Something must have happened over the past few years, because the reviews below are completely bogus given what we truthfully experienced. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND LOOK ELSEWHERE. I have the heaviest heart reflecting on the time spent in planning & organizing our special day…and how quickly this team allowed those visions to crumble. Luckily, no planner or florist can ever ruin the amazing love & support of wedding day, but PLEASE, if you are considering help in executing your dream "perfect event"' DO NOT BE FOOLED by the name of this company. LOOK ELSEWHERE and save yourself the headaches, sleep deprivation, stress and complete disappointment.
-Debi never stepped in when needed for coordination (at rehearsal mass, or at reception as promised)
-pricing was intentionally vague in order to under deliver on contracted plans in an effort in pad APE take home pay
-belittlement and unprofessionalism to us, the client, and to many of our chosen vendors in communications together
-constant mathematical errors, lack of clarity and missed details in every contract and design plan
-disposal of all floral without our consent (including a valuable and sentimental family charm)...unable to ever get this back
-promised a "team" of support. no one from APE was present other than Debi and her teenage daughter
-vendor payments left completely abandoned forcing vendors to approach bride and groom at the end of the evening for their check. Debi, nowhere in sight, left this on the counter. (Found these abandoned payments the next morning)
-personal items means for distribution during reception, were hidden in the basement and never put out despite verbal and written direction to do so. $650 wasted on this.

The list is endless. Visit my yelp review if more detail is desired or feel free to reach out. I don't want anyone to feel the way we did, and do...

Not only a perfect event, but perfection in every way. The girls we worked with exceeded our expectations, and I am typically the type of person who does everything herself because I don't feel that anyone else will do it "right". Especially for an event that is arguably the single most important day of my life until babies come along, it is a really big deal that I felt so comfortable with the company, their unique and gorgeous ideas to make my day exactly how I imaged and beyond, and everything about working with Christine and Lindsay.

I will be back for more the many special events in life worth celebrating and I would send anyone who asked me about help with ANYTHING related to weddings or any special event to A Perfect Event because you can be sure that it will be JUST that!

A Perfect Event are truly incredible to work with! Jonathan and the entire team were so great & made me feel so comfortable on our wedding day. We wanted to make sure that the flowers for the ceremony could be reused for the reception, and they really went above and beyond. The flowers were so amazing, all of the bridesmaids bouquets were beautiful and the boutonnieres were perfect. Jonathan truly listened to our requests and made extremely creative suggestions that really stood out against other florists we spoke with. I would definitely use A Perfect Event again & would recommend to anyone!

When it comes to stationary and favors, A Perfect Event has a huge amount of examples and options for you to look through and choose from. They can do pretty much anything that you want, which is great when you're trying to be creative. We had our wedding in Chicago even though almost everyone we invited lives in either Florida or Vermont. Because of this, we wanted to have a "Chicago" theme run throughout our entire wedding. Daniela at A Perfect Event was awesome here. She found us an adorable skyline to use on different stationary pieces. We put it in the invites on the RSVP cards and wedding website inserts and again on the cover of our wedding programs. We've gotten a ton of compliments on how beautiful, elegant, creative, and perfectly-coordinated our stationary was. The only thing that I can complain about was the fact that everything that we ordered came back incorrect and had to be reordered. Daniela was great about getting everything fixed very quickly, but it became very frustrating to keep finding mistakes and having to wait. In the end, everything was gorgeous and completed on time, so I feel very good about hiring A perfect Event.

I hired Hope Gwaltney at a Perfect Event as my "week of" coordinator. Hope was amazing and I truly was able to enjoy my big day - stressfree! I had contracted all of the major vendors, but she took over the job of confirming all of the details months before the actual wedding date. I didn't worry about anything the week leading up to the wedding day and everything turned out perfectly. I would highly recommend them.
