Please don't pass the opportunity up to work with Naomi! I was so hesitant and debating going to another vendor to save some money but Naomi is hands down amazing!!!!!! I have the month of package but she's been helping me along the way since I hired her in December (weddings in July). She always responds so fast! I can absolutely rely on her and trust that I'll be able to get ahold of her. She's honest and so real! She has amazing ideas and isn't too pushy! I have a very hard time making decisions and she's been perfect for me! You will not regret working with her! Absolutely worth every penny!!

Naomi and her team took care of our month-of planning and they were amazing!!! Even though they were our "month-of" coordinators, Naomi started helping me as soon as we hired her with checklists and vendor recommendations ready to go. When the time got closer, Naomi and Erica took care of everything...dealing with our catering manager and ALL our different vendors, organizing the rehearsal, planning out a super detailed and organized wedding day itinerary, helping us set up our tables and decorations the day of, bringing to my attention all the little details of wedding planning that I would never have thought of myself, and more! I had the best time at my wedding and it was all because of DNT. I felt so calm and happy on the day of because I knew everything was well taken care of. Several of my guests afterwards told me that everything was really well planned and everyone had a such a great time! I would highly recommend Naomi and her team to anyone planning their wedding! You won't regret it!!!

I hired Naomi as the coordinator my wedding, and I'm so happy that I did! I hadn't originally planned on hiring a coordinator, but now I know that I could not have done it without her. The scale and scope of the wedding kept growing, and Naomi helped to advise on and keep track of everything. All of her vendor recommendations were spot on too - lighting, bar, rentals, and especially the florist and photographer, who were amazing. And she even helped negotiate with other vendors that I brought in.

Naomi talked with me over the phone and met in person multiple times leading up to the wedding. It was a complicated event, with almost 20 vendors - we had multiple caterers, we had to bring in every single piece of furniture and lighting, and we had a roller skating rink! But Naomi managed everything flawlessly.

The day of the wedding is where Naomi and her team really shine. Naomi had the entire day planned out, down to the minute - every person in the wedding party and every vendor knew exactly what was supposed to happen and when. She brought in an amazing team - every one of them was pleasant, professional, and did everything possible to make the day go perfectly for myself, my sister, and all the guests. They put the finishing touches on all the decorating on the morning of the wedding while we were all busy getting ready, and they even brought the flowers over from the ceremony to the reception space to dress it up - and everything looked perfect. I felt like every time I needed something or had a question, one of the girls magically appeared at my side. They made sure all of the wedding party was well taken care of, and I didn't have to worry about a thing all day or night.

Naomi really is something special, and I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again for any kind of event. She takes the time to get to know you and understand what you want for your special day. Her recommendations are great, and she has impeccable taste.

If you want an absolutely perfect wedding, hire Naomi Takahashi from DNT events to plan it with you. In every category and stage of the wedding, Naomi did a perfect job. She was amazing with communicating to my daughter, so there were no disagreements between us. I had heard wedding planning with daughters can be a nightmare, but with Naomi at the helm, everything was wonderful! She also knows the very best people to go to for anything you need for the wedding. Her ideas are amazing and her organization skills are perfect. Everyone told us it was the best wedding they'd ever been to, and we had a blast because I didn't have to worry about anything! Get the whole package "Chocolate Souffle" because it's totally worth it.

I was one of the brides who didn't really think much about what her wedding would be like and had no idea where to start when it came time to start the planning. Thank god for Naomi and DNT Elite Events! She made everything so easy! She sent us a checklist very early on so we knew what we were in store for and made great vendor recommendations, people/businesses that I would use again for any occasion. She answered all of my questions via email relatively quickly, and if she had an event and would need a few extra days to respond, she told me, so I always felt she was available. I also loved that she would send out perodic emails to make sure that I had done certain things (e.g., obtain the marriage license). My mom and I trusted her so much that when we couldn't decide on certain things, such as linens, we let Naomi take the lead....and I'm so glad we did.

She was also really patient, as I had a mother-of-the-bride who was a little bit controlling and out of control. But Naomi handled it all with such professionalism.

What I enjoyed the most is that, after meeting and working with Naomi, I knew that I could just sit back and relax the day of our wedding. I knew we were in good hands and if, for whatever reason, there was something that went wrong (which I don't think there was), Naomi would deal with and solve it. We really did have a perfect wedding, and it was all thanks to Naomi and her team.

I would recommend her to anyone for any event.

Naomi is one of the most amazing, dedicated, hardworking, and organized individuals I have ever met. I come from a family who has definitely thrown their share of parties, but for my wedding, when we had to bring in ALL our vendors, not to mention, we had performances throughout the night, Naomi flawlessly coordinated and orchestrated our wedding to run smoothly. She dealt with my guests who were demanding with the same grace as our more considerate guests, and even went beyond her call of duty to help me when we encountered a problem with inventory counts AFTER the wedding. I would recommend her and her team (and have been) without a moment's hesitation!

DNT was referred to us by a family friend and past client. That person told us DNT went above and beyond for them and that's just what they did for us! Naomi was our wedding coordinator and we took advantage of their "Tiramisu Package". Our wedding was traditionally Jewish and took place at the InterContinental hotel in Century City.

In short, Naomi never missed a beat. She was over-the-top efficient and organized. She was a master negotiator for for us, making sure we had the most sensible contracts in place and for the best possible price. She had an endless supply of suggestions and understood our vision very well.

Throughout the planning process, Naomi was a great help. However, when it came close to the big day she stepped it up all the more. Her day-of timeline included every detail of the day in 5-minute increments! Everything went off without a hitch and we have her to thank!

What else can I say!? :)

We were feeling overwhelmed with all the details of wedding planning & decided to hire a wedding planner. It was probably the best decision we've made. We retained her for the month-of & day-of service. She was so generous with her time, and always so efficient and responsive. On the day of the wedding, she & her team were very attentive. They checked in with us throughout the day & made sure that the day went smoothly. Our entrance to the reception & our dance were carefully coordinated to the music down to the second. She & her team, together with the DJ, carried it out flawlessly. A lot of my side of family are Mandarin speaking and traveled from afar. Naomi managed to find an assistant who's bilingual, so that no one felt left out.

My husband and I had a fantastic time at our wedding because of Naomi. She came highly recommended to me & now we will highly recommend her to all the future brides.

I don't know what I would have done without DNT, and specifically Naomi, coordinating my wedding day! I've heard horror stories of brides who stayed up until the wee hours the night before their weddings - arranging DIY centerpieces, finalizing details with vendors, putting out fires, and stressing about the event. I knew that I wanted to relax and enjoy my day, so I hired DNT for the Créme Brulee package - their Month of Coordination with Rehearsal & Day Of. Although it was officially a 'month of wedding' package, Naomi was available to me way before that, helping me through every step of the planning process. She sent me vendor referrals, answered my questions about etiquette and logistics, gave her advice and opinions whenever asked, met vendors with me, and basically supported me throughout the 11 month planning process. In the last few weeks before the wedding, she really kicked it into high gear - confirming all the vendors, putting together a minute-by-minute itinerary for the day of the wedding (never complaining about the multiple minor changes I made along the way), putting together the seating chart, and communicating the final details with our venue. I'm pretty organized and consider myself a planner, so the one difficulty I had was actually giving up control and handing over the reins to Naomi - but I'm so glad that I did! I felt so relaxed on the day of the wedding, and just knew that Naomi and the DNT team had everything under control! I never had to wonder where I needed to go next, because someone was always by my side (sometimes with a drink or snack in hand for me), gently telling me where we were going next and making sure I was having fun. A few days before the wedding, I had been stressed about whether we had enough shuttles to get my friends back to the hotel at the end of the night, that Naomi even offered to stay late until everyone had left just to make sure everybody had a safe ride home. Now THAT'S above and beyond!

Naomi is THE reason our wedding was a success. She came highly recommended from our contact at the Trump Golf Course where we had our wedding in May of 2013. We hired DNT Elite Events to handle our month leading up to and day of wedding coordination, but in reality, Naomi did so much for us from day 1, when we reached out to her 8 months before our wedding. She was on top of every detail, supportive of our preferences, so well organized, responsive, and professional. She made herself available for late night conference calls to accommodate our schedules, came with me to meetings with vendors, and covered every detail you'll never be able to imagine on your own. She is truly passionate about delivering a high quality wedding experience.

A good way to tell that someone does a great job for you is that you miss working with them when the wedding is over. I cannot recommend her enough!
