Veronica was absolutely amazing! We only gave her 2 months notice to plan our NYE wedding in our back yard,in the dead of winter on a limited budget. She exceeded our expectations and we enjoyed working with her immensely. She took our limited budget and made our wedding/reception look like a million bucks. She knows the industry inside and out. Her work is beyond compare. We highly recommend her series to anyone and everyone.

Veronica assisted me with booking rooms for my wedding at the National Harbor. We had already been working with another planner (who was also great!) by the time we met Veronica, so I didn't have the pleasure of working extensively with AC Events. However, given Veronica's timely responses, thorough presentation and professionalism, I can confidently say that all that she touches is golden. I will keep her in my files for future events and recommendations! Thanks again! :-)

Veronica of AC Events is positively incredible. She met with my wife and I for an hour while tasting cake. In that hour she learned what we wanted, how much we wanted to pay for it and our personal tastes. Her recommendations are golden and all you have to do is trust her. When it comes to wedding planning she is always correct. She returns calls and emails promptly and most importantly she listens. You know that she has other clients, but you feel like you are her only client. When life happens and you are stressed you can tell her to take over and know that she will never dissappoint you. She makes things happen and I will recommend her to everyone.

We used Veronica Cole with AC Events for help coordinating our hotel block for our Baltimore wedding. She was always very responsive to our emails and organized everything with the hotel managers for us. One of the best part of her services is that is was all free for us!

AC Events, LLC was a life saver. They made planning our wedding a breeze and a joy. My husband and I used AC Events, LLC for our hotel accomodations, for our out-of-town guests, and also for wedding planning services. They were amazingly professional, efficient, and fun. The staff was a joy to work with, always one step ahead of everyone else. They know tons of amazing vendors all around the Baltimore and DC area and helped us pick out all of our wedding vendors, and we loved them all. AC Events only recommends the best of the best vendors and it shows...our wedding went off without a hitch. Using AC Events saved us a ton of money, my husband was extra pleased with that aspect. The value of using AC Events, LLC is priceless. I would recommend AC Events to anyone. Veronica was a joy to work with!

AC Events made the room block process for my wedding a breeze. I wanted to reserve rooms at different price points for my 250+ guests and Veronica with AC Events handled all the leg work for me. She negotiated with the hotels for me and we wound up with amazing rates at two of the nicest luxury hotels in Miami. She is professional and attentive and always willing to go the extra mile for her clients. Highly recommended!

Veronica Cole is a true professional. She booked the hotel rooms for our wedding. As things went awry--people backed out, people needed upgrades, people forgot to tell the hotel our names to get their discount--Veronica dealt with it. The final, crowning achievement of her involvement with our wedding was when one of our guests needed a crib for their infant and the hotel, which had promised them one, DID NOT HAVE IT. Can you imagine spending the night with an infant in a hotel room with no crib? They were understandably upset. We called Veronica. With one phone call, she got the hotel to get a crib from another hotel and deliver it, free of charge, to our guests. Yay! She really saved us like that several times. Awesome.

There's not much better than someone handling hotel booking needs for a wedding at no cost to you. Dealing with hotels can be complex and time consuming and AC Events took care of everything for us. They were very responsive and professional and seemed genuinely interested in making sure the bride and her guests would be happy.

This particular wedding planner was efficient and meticulous in her planning and arrangements. We heard nothing but "classy," "awesome," and "wonderful," from the guests attending the wedding. I was especially struck by her attention to detail, the timely manner in which everything was set up and taken down, and the personal touch that was evident all night long. She managed everything nicely and pleasantly, coordinating her support staff in a professional and gracious manner, and deserves every accolade for a job well done. I highly recommend her services to prospective brides and grooms and know that she will live up to your expectations and satisfaction.

Veronica did a great job for us in coordinating the wedding reception and wedding ceremony. She was very approachable, very pleasant and fun to work with. Veronica had excellent follow up and follow through skills, which is so very important to most brides. She made sure to keep me abreast of any changes, updates, schedules, etc... and kept the entire wedding day and rehearsal on track.
