What can I say about Ms. Pamela other than hands down she is the best. Being in the industry myself I planned my entire wedding and pay attention to every detail. I know many planners but knew that Pamela was the one I needed on our team. We however needed someone to be the "chief" for the entire weekend and make sure all our vendors where all on the same page and the weekend was going to run smooth. We not only had Pamela and her crew work the wedding day but there where 4 large and very detailed events for our guest that weekend. Pamela not only made sure everyone was on the same page for the weekend leading up to it but she also set up all our DYI and manage all the vendors. There was nothing I worried about because Pamela was there. Everything went to plan and believe me our weekend had a lot of moving parts! Everything was just perfect. I truly believe that without Pamela there I would not have been able to be at ease and enjoy my entire wedding weekend. She is creative, fun and very organize and professional. There was things she caught prior to the wedding that needed to be corrected that I did not even see myself. Because she saw these issues and corrected them prior we had a very, VERY smooth wedding weekend. If you are reading this and are thinking of having Pamela join your wedding vendor crew, hands down add her on! She will make sure everything runs smooth and be your eyes and ears. I have to say she is also very fun! She was with me right before I was about to go down the isle with my father and I waiting. We had a ball and she felt like family. We are so pleased that we are using her again for the next big family event this upcoming April.

I was married at OceanCliff Hotel & Resort in Newport, RI on July 5th. Needless to say planning a wedding over 4th of July weekend, let alone in Newport (a popular wedding destination) as well as planning remotely from Washington, D.C. was/is a huge undertaking! I am personally a very organized & efficient planner with a lot of event planning experience for my work in politics-- that said, one's wedding is a whole different thing and something I realized I needed help with. I was referred to Pamela at PDR Events by OceanCliff, my wedding venue, and honestly it was the BEST money well spent. Pamela was my 'day of' point person and really she was with me for the last 6 weeks. I did all the upfront work of booking vendors, room blocks, band etc... and hired Pamela in the later stages and she was worth every penny. In retrospect, if your budget allows I would suggest hiring her from the very beginning, however if not, then at a minimum for the final stages of planning and as your 'day-of' person.

Here is why she is so valuable:
1) She's is incredible organized, efficient & responsive (something that was important to me since I lived in another city)
2) She has a very sophisticated and elegant style that is important when selecting final last minute details the day-of and as a resource for advice
3) Anything I needed/wanted or thought of that last week, Pamela delivered.
4)She's a pro and knew all the right questions to ask that I had forgot and knew how to make an event run smoothly
5) Most importantly...she made my wedding day be LOW-STRESS for me. She was the difference between me freaking out that flowers weren't in the right place or getting my bridal party lined up, or telling the band names or announcements etc... instead Pamela did all that and it made our wedding absolutely perfect and allowed me to focus on my family, friends & new husband!

All said and done, I would 100% recommend her as a fantastic wedding planner in Newport!!

Pam is worth every penny you will spend! This woman has endless amounts of energy, and is willing to exert it ALL on the bride. She is always available, prompt, and reliable. She will have the answers to your questions before you even come up with the question.
It is difficult to sum up how wonderful Pam is. I'll leave it at this; if you want to have the wedding of your dreams without the headache that comes with it...book Pam. I did not have to worry about a single thing on my wedding day, and absolutely nothing went wrong. She is amazing.

I wanted to thank you and your team for doing AMAZING job on my wedding day. I was incredibly happy and it was a day I will not soon forget. Also, thank you for taking the time to work with me under such tight time restraints. Your flexibility around my very busy schedule was amazing. Everything you did for me from invitations to decor was beautiful and tasteful. Also, you and your team were so easy to work with and kept me 'on the ball'. You made what could have been an overwhelming stressful experience one that I enjoyed.

I truly do not think I could have pulled off all my wedding planning in only five months if it hadn't been for you. Thank you for being such an integral part of our wedding and for helping to make it a beautiful day filled with family and love.

I can't say enough great things about Pamela. I was a bride planning a wedding from very far away and figured it'd be helpful to have someone at least in the same state as my wedding as the time got closer. I can't imagine what I would've done without Pamela. She organized all the vendors, made a great timeline, made sure everyone got where they needed to be one time, and marched into a restaurant to make sure the bathroom was clean so I could use it last minute, wedding dress and all! I can't imagine how much more stressed and less prepared I would've been without her. Hands down, without reservation, recommend her 100%

Pamela is wonderful! She's full of energy and enthusiasm, and she has great ideas. She kept us organized through the whole planning process, and she made sure that everything for our wedding day was beautiful and seamlessly put together. She devoted herself to the details, making sure to highlight all of our family traditions and even hand assembling centerpieces for our pre-wedding welcome reception. On the wedding day it was such a comfort knowing that Pamela had all of the logistics under control, and she made sure that we were never stressed or overwhelmed. Thanks to Pamela our wedding was gorgeous and fun, and our friends and family are still talking about what a blast they had. Thank you, Pamela!

The best decision I have ever made was to hire Pamela D'orsi Ryan to help in planning my daughter's wedding. She is a wealth of knowledge and ideas. Pamela is very professional and thorough. She stays within all budgets and is able to troubleshoort when problems arise. The overall outcome of the wedding was more than I could have ever imagined or hoped for! I would not hesitate working with her again when my younger daughter gets married. PDR Events is definitely worth the investment!

Pamela with PDR Events was an absolute pleasure to work with! We didn’t use a typical venue for our wedding and planned almost all the details but knew we needed to hire someone to pull everything together and execute on the day of. We couldn’t have done it without her! Just to name a VERY few things about Pamela: she is extremely responsive, is very organized and has such an eye for detail. She thought of details that didn’t cross our minds and had a contingency plan for everything. She and her team completely understood our vision and style. I was able to relax the day of, knowing everything would be done just how we wanted (better in many cases) and it was!

Well, where do I start when talking about Pamela’s wedding planning talents? My (now) husband and I really thought we could do it all ourselves, until we ended up coming to the realization that we needed someone who could step in, see our vision, and execute. Thank goodness we found Pamela. I knew within our first phone conversation that we would be entrusting our wedding to her. She impressed me right away – sharing tons of ideas and tips off the bat with humor, wit, and her vibrant personality. Another cool thing about Pamela is that she made us feel like we were her only clients (which obviously wasn’t the case – this was summer wedding season in Newport after all!), getting back to us super quickly and keeping things moving in perfect time. Bonus is that she runs her own invitations shop in East Greenwich (a *must visit* store for all things modern bride), so we worked directly with Pamela on the fun design elements (menus, programs, thank you notes etc). Our wedding was absolutely gorgeous, and went off without a hitch, and we really have Pamela to thank. Bottom line is that I can’t imagine having worked with anyone but Pamela on my wedding. She exceeded all our expectations, and I guarantee you will feel the same way!

Pam!
You are an absolutely amazing person... you define the words "organized... professional... fun... creative... caring... and DYNAMITE"!!!!!! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for a wonderful wedding weekend. What fun we had!!! What a party you (and mom) threw for us! You told me not to tell you what I didn't like until after the weekend. Well, that's why it's taken so long to write... there isn't anything I didn't like!

From the flowers to the blinking sunglasses... the cake to the guitarist... everything was lovely and divine and well, perfect!

Thank you Pam!

I cannot say enough nice and wonderful things about Pam D'Orsi Ryan and PDR Events. I probably would not have had a wedding without her.
I got married in the middle of a hurricane. I never felt like I was getting married in the middle of a crisis because Pam literally took care of every detail and was so clam in dealing with every problem without letting me know, that I never felt an ounce of stress.
Pam coordinated our entire wedding, including day of. She talked down vendors to lower prices for us. She negotiated for an extra 20 minutes of our trolley without having to pay more money. She expertly helped us select all of our linens, etc. We had a five star wedding and Pam was the mind behind all of it. On top of that, she is a wonderful person with a vibrant and amazing personality. She was always so excited about my wedding, that she made me feel even more excited about it!
In addition, she helped my fiance plan our entire rehearsal dinner with his mother who was out of state. Every single aspect of both events was flawless and amazing despite a million moving parts (and the hurricane!) We had numerous guests tell us it was the nicest wedding they have ever attended and we owe it all to Pam.
Pam was the absolute best money my parents have ever spent according to my mom. Her prices are reasonable and she worth her weight in gold. All you have to do it look at pictures of my wedding to see how amazing she is. I recommend her one million percent. She is fabulous with a capital F and she made our wedding weekend unforgettable!!

I cannot say enough nice and wonderful things about Pam D'Orsi Ryan and PDR Events. I probably would not have had a wedding without her.
I got married in the middle of a hurricane. I never felt like I was getting married in the middle of a crisis because Pam literally took care of every detail and was so clam in dealing with every problem without letting me know, that I never felt an ounce of stress.
Pam coordinated our entire wedding, including day of. She talked down vendors to lower prices for us. She negotiated for an extra 20 minutes of our trolley without having to pay more money. She expertly helped us select all of our linens, etc. We had a five star wedding and Pam was the mind behind all of it. On top of that, she is a wonderful person with a vibrant and amazing personality. She was always so excited about my wedding, that she made me feel even more excited about it!
In addition, she helped my fiance plan our entire rehearsal dinner with his mother who was out of state. Every single aspect of both events was flawless and amazing despite a million moving parts (and the hurricane!)

Pamela D'Orsi Ryan provided wedding planning services for us for our wedding at the Glen Manor House on July 9, 2011. Frankly, we could not have pulled it off without her, and the event itself was everything we could have imagined. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to Pamela. We chose her because we liked her can-do attitude and her willingness to think outside the box. We were right about that, but what you can't tell in an interview, and what we learned, is how great she is an individual. She is so thoughtful and attentive that by the end, even though we were very picky, we were just turning things over to her because we knew she would understand what we wanted without us having to describe it. She was invaluable in helping us pick vendors, figure out whether costs were reasonable, giving advice on tough decisions (including easy decisions that seemed tough at the time) and just generally keeping us calm. She was less expensive than the other planners we interviewed, which made her services a great value, but she was so good that we ended up paying her a bonus that brought the overall fees in line with what others were quoting. And we still underpaid, given how great she was. Hire Pam, check that off your to-do list, and thank us later.

Pamela was always there for me. She prides herself on one on one attention and she delivers. She only has a couple weddings each month allowing her the time to go over details to the max and make sure your day is as special as possible. The value of her service (esp for the cost) is I think unmatched. We had a perfect day that was stress free. Pamela has great contacts with vendors that are trustworthy, honest and fair. You can be sure they will be on their best behavior with Pamela around! Couldn't ask for a better wedding planner and couldn't have done it without her! would recommend her to anyone.

After trying to do everything myself while working full time (as so many brides do!), I realized that I needed some help in the weeks leading up to the wedding, so I contacted Pamela at pdr events. I had purchased my invitations from New England Invitations (Pamela's everything-to-do-with-weddings shop), and really liked her from the start. Hiring Pamela was the best thing I did for my wedding and my sanity. She was always available, had about a million creative ideas, and was able to find top-notch vendors for my last minute needs. She helped to make my wedding day run incredibly smoothly - not once did I have a single worry with her in charge - and knowing my now husband and his groomsmen, I'm sure she had her hands full keeping everyone in line! I highly recommend Pamela and pdr events. Pamela is both fun to work with and incredibly professional - you'll be amazed at what she can do for you!

Pamela was amazing! I hired her as my day of coordinator, but she was so much more than that! She met with vendors with me in the weeks prior to the wedding and coordinated all of the vendor deliveries and arrivals. She made the day go so smoothly for me that I was able to truly relax and enjoy myself!
