Finding ourselves in a rut with all of the day-of details, we contacted Blue Canary Events 3 weeks before our wedding. Anjie was available for the day of our wedding and was amazing to work with. She helped us to coordinate our rehearsal and created a timeline for the entire day. She also took over setting up all of the little ceremony and rehearsal odds and ends (e.g. favors, aisle runner, rings, etc.) Anjie truly made the entire process go smoothly.

Anjie was very communicative all throughout the process. She was very organized, extremely professional, extremely upbeat, and was a calming force during the last-minute jitters and wedding gown hem disaster. We could not have done it without her. We highly recommend Anjie to anyone!

My fiance and I had found a place to have our wedding and they provided us with a list of vendors they suggested working with, one of which was Blue Canary. I had contacted several wedding planners on the list, but only Blue Canary offered to meet with me and my husband in person, before we had even hired them, which I felt was really helpful! We met with Rebecca, who we found very easy to talk to, knowledgeable and enthusiastic and knew that she would be the perfect person to help plan our wedding. She was there for us every set of the way--from picking the band and the caterer to the cake tasting to dealing with the crazy church lady at the rehearsal to even running by the store to buy champagne on the day of the wedding because I forgot to bring it to the hotel! Her attention to detail and desire for perfection is what makes Rebecca (and the events she plans) so incredible. Our day went off without a hitch and I have her to thank for that! I would highly recommend Blue Canary (and Rebecca specifically)!!

We used Anjie for a customized month and day of package. We didn’t think we needed a wedding planner, but looking back we have no idea what we would have done without her! Anjie is positive, organized, professional, and she always made us feel at ease. She was available to answer our questions, give recommendations, and to meet with us in person whenever we needed. She listened and had an excellent sense of who we are and what we wanted.

Anjie helped us create the perfect day that was a true reflection of “us.” She coordinated with all of our vendors to make a seamless timeline for the wedding day. Anjie was a lifesaver – she stepped in and solved multiple unexpected problems for us – from a bridal gown that didn’t fit two days before the wedding, to missing bouquets and boutonniers literally minutes before our ceremony. All of our vendors loved working with Anjie and our family and friends adored her too. We’d absolutely recommend that any bride and groom add “hire Anjie” to their list of wedding planning “must dos.”

Ryan Hayes was the wedding planner for my daughter's wedding and he was amazing. He went above and beyond the call of duty and the terms of our contract to make the entire wedding weekend go smoothly. I can't begin to tell you how very fortunate we feel that we found him. Everyone who participated in the wedding and attended the wedding at every venue over the course of the weekend shared with us what a pleasure he was, so gracious and spot on at every turn, through rain and sunshine. He handled every thing thrown his way and guided my daughter and now son-in-law through the planning and execution of a beautiful wedding. The Cathedral staff appreciated our having him and all involved would recommend him without reservation. I don't write reviews but our experience with Ryan Hayes at Blue Canary Special Events made it necessary in this case.

Rebecca Dick was my month-of coordinator (along with one assistant, Anjie, on our wedding day). Rebecca was super responsive to my emails, and provided helpful guidance/solutions/tips in response to my concerns. One month prior to the wedding, Rebecca took over all vendors correspondence to alleviate stress for me. She's detail oriented, thoughtful and incredibly fun to be around. I couldn't have done it without her!

We hired Blue Canary for our wedding and got paired with Rebecca for the "wedding coach" services. She is fantastic! She was also the only wedding planner that actually wanted to meet with us in person. The other wedding coordinators just wanted to chat on the phone. One of them even stood up our phone meeting. After meeting Rebecca, we felt like she really cared about helping us and was really enthusiastic about the wedding!

She provided us with really good vendor recommendations and really understood our personal style. So the venue, the photographer, the caterer were all perfect! Everything went soo smoothly - I know I had a lot of requests when it came to the decor and the order of events and the wedding was even better than I imagined it. She worked really hard and put in a lot of hours to help me achieve my wedding vision. It was so much fun brainstorming and putting stuff together. We are so thankful to have had her there!

Since we were having a large-ish wedding (160+ guests), we had other day-of assistants and they were all super nice and friendly!

I hired Blue Canary for Month of Wedding Coordination. I was very lucky to be paired up with Anjie. She is organized, professional, pleasant, punctual, responsive, and gets the job done. I work with people and I know how difficult it is to work with different personalities and get the job done well. Anjie has an amazing talent to do the above with such grace and professionalism. Multiple vendors told me about how they really liked working with her. One vendor mentioned, "Anjie is so great to work with. She is a great reflection of the bride, and makes other vendors want to go above and beyond for you." I thought that just spoke for itself.

Blue Canary Events’ Rebecca Dick was fantastic; she genuinely seemed excited to help plan our wedding. Our event had multiple locations and many moving parts, and everything went off with only one hitch—us! The day flowed exactly as planned, with buses, trolleys and vendors coming from every part of the DMV. We had a priest, a rabbi and an accordion player—all the makings of a joke; however, the expertise displayed by Rebecca kept us from being the family laughingstock. The ceremony took place on the National Mall, at the D.C. War Memorial, which is located near the MLK and Lincoln memorials. Well, the date we picked was right smack in the middle of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington events, which increased the traffic and headache associated with planning. However, all parts moved smoothly; we were largely unaffected. Now it's just a cool story—our wedding coinciding with such a major event—and added to the fun for out of town guests, of which there were many. With all potential complications involved, it was a miracle that nothing major happened. That is truly a testament to the work of Rebecca. She prepared a detailed timeline, and we stuck to it. She kept our riled up families in line; even the naysayers, who felt like the whole thing would blow up in our faces, were giddy after the party ended. Rebecca worked with us about a month before, gathering up all the vendor information and making sure everyone involved was in place. She joked with us and kept things lighthearted, which was a huge thing for me—a classic worrywart and people pleaser. I was able to enjoy what was happening without being hampered by what could go wrong. I also don't know how she did it, but Rebecca somehow wrangled the typically sticky and insufferable D.C. August weather. That particular late August day was gorgeous—sunny, low 80s, with no humidity. Perfection. We had some tiny snafus with a missing check and a drunk photographer, but Rebecca handled those. Hire her!

Working with Rebecca at Blue Canary was perhaps the best wedding related decision we made (other than the actual decision to get married). From the moment we first met her, we knew we wanted her to be our planner. She was down-to-earth, incredibly organized, friendly, and very receptive to our views. Her taste in vendors was impeccable, and very much matched our taste. In fact, the one non-Rebecca approved vendor fell through, and she was able to find a new person to fill in very last minute. Throughout the planning process, she kept us on track and gave us very clear projects when we weren't sure what to tackle next. She advocated for us when our wedding site became somewhat difficult, and dealt with difficult family members (at our request) in a very professional and no-nonsense kind of way. I was actually quite sad when the wedding process was over because it meant having less contact with her. I recommend Rebecca and Blue Canary wholeheartedly, and without any reservations.
