I am very pleased with Fortuna Events. I hired them to do the planning for my wedding and my bridal shower. This review is for my bridal shower that took place on December 5th, 2015. Bobbie from Fortuna Events did an amazing job. I had ideas and she was able to make a dream come true. She is very helpful filled with ideas. She is very positive. I had a garden theme that after brainstorming we came up with a beautiful theme. She customized paper flowers as a favor and did all my prep and decoration for the day of the bridal shower. One thing I can assured you about Fortuna Events is that her whole team is very professional. She is always available and responds to all your questions. she is in this business because she loves what she does which you can not find to many people out there that will go above and beyond to help you out. I have nothing negative to say about Fortuna events. If your worry about finding good vendors. Bobbie has all the vendors necessary for your event. She is helping me plan my wedding and I can not wait for the day to come. I am at peace because I know I have a true professional helping me. Also she has a very good shop with invitations, favors and all the necessary items for your big day! Booking Fortuna Events has been the best decision I made for my bridal shower and my wedding. Thank You Bobbie for all your help! I am truly thankful!! You and your team Rock!!!

Our experience with Fortuna Events, and specifically, our wedding planner Bobbie Outerino, was wonderful. Being able to marry each other on the beach was incredible in itself, but Bobbie made it even more magical with her irreplaceable support.
She was a treasure trove of local knowledge, and went to each of the locations to 'scout them out,' i.e. she took pictures - many pictures - and sent them to us for approval. She was open to all of our ideas and helped us to identify the most important parts of our wedding, as well as helping us to pare things down or come up with compromises to stay within our budget. Since ours was a destination wedding, it definitely came with its own interesting and unique challenges. Bobbie was creative in handling each of the challenges as they cropped up, and helped to keep the brides happy!
Our gorgeous and perfect wedding took almost a year to come to fruition, and a lot of work went on behind the scenes in order to pull it off. Although she was not the only one involved, Bobbie was integral to making that happen. In fact, she was seriously injured a matter of days before our event, but still managed to meet with us when we arrived in Florida, to give us a tour of all of our vendors and local stops (as well as providing us with lots of other insider info that proved to be true!), and to provide impeccable service - through the help of her teammates - the day of the wedding itself.
We would definitely recommend Bobbie and Fortuna Events to anyone wanting to get married in Florida. We don't regret a thing!

When I first met Bobbie at a bridal show, I immediately felt connected to her. She is smart, resourceful, compassionate and most importantly, assertive -- a perfect combination of qualities for an event planner. Even though I had no money in the budget for a coordinator, I knew that I needed Bobbie in order to create and complete my dream wedding. I dug deep in my pockets to make it happen, and Bobbie was worth every last penny. As an obsessive and controlling DIY bride who is almost impossible to impress, Bobbie was everything I could have ever wanted and so much more.

Let's rewind to February, when the onsite coordinator at my venue quit. The planning process quickly became chaotic and unmanageable, but Bobbie was there with me through every step. I should be clear that I hired Bobbie as my DAY OF coordinator, yet she still went out of her way to keep the planning process seamless months and months in advance. This is the kind of coordinator that Bobbie is -- one who will do anything to make her couples happy above and beyond expectations and execute a flawless event.

Bobbie also paired me with an incredible florist and has a large network of talented and professional vendors that love to work with her. And rather than simply making recommendations, she arranged and attended countless meetings with me to learn and translate my vision. She also respected and accommodated my tight budget, getting me the best prices for everything. When it came time for my wedding weekend, Bobbie went above and beyond yet again by attending and organizing my rehearsal with her assistant. The two of them were like wedding angels on the day of, working tirelessly in a million places at once.

There are not enough positive words in the English language to capture my praise and gratitude for Bobbie and her team. She is an exceptional planner and an even better person and my best advice to brides is this: book Bobbie asap if you want a PERFECT wedding.

One word to describe Barbara’s work: SPECTACULAR!!!
Our wedding was beyond perfect and we are so happy to have hired Barbara as our wedding planner!!! She is such a pleasure to work with and assisted us with everything that we needed. She helped me with all my questions (and boy did I have a lot) and more importantly reassured me throughout the process that everything would come out perfect and we would have all the details we wanted plus more!!! She is extremely professional and very meticulous about all the small details, which made our day even more special. You can tell how passionate she is about her job. She took care of our wedding as if it was her own which was very important to us, since we are living in San Francisco and our wedding was in Miami. I arrived to Miami only a month before the wedding and by then Barbara was already up to date in everything we were doing.
We had hired Barbara as our “Day of Coordinator” but she did MUCH more than that for us. She helped us to create our menus, she created our sitting chart, went with us to all of our meetings with the venue owner the month previous to the wedding. She went to my rehearsal the day before and since she realized my court was not taking it very serious, she stepped in and coordinated everyone to make sure we were all in the same page; she even attended my wedding ceremony and served as the coordinator. She also contacted all of our vendors two weeks before the wedding to coordinate arrival times, locations and any issues previously to the wedding. I didn't have to worry at any point in time, which is priceless for any bride!
As I walked into the ballroom I had to catch my breath; it was BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL! I have never seen something so spectacular! The flowers, cake, the buffet, the centerpieces, the decoration. WOW everything was AMAZING!!!
Thank you so much for making our day so amazing!!! We appreciate everything you did from the beginning to the end!!!

Bobbie was an amazing Planner, her whole team made me feel like I was party of their fun family. If i had any "Bridezilla" Moments Bobbie would just calm me down and refocus the planning to the what really mattered. Family, and Love. As we got closer to the big day we shared inside jokes and went on coffee meet ups, it was like planning with your best friend, but with all of the professionalism and esae that only a true Event Planner can bring.

If you want to have the time of you life preparing for the biggest moment of your life call Bobbie at Fortune Events.
