We cannot say enough about our truly incredible experience working with Pamela and PDR events. She made wedding planning a delight: Pamela deftly handled every situation, anticipated untold questions/ items we never would have thought of ourselves, and helped us to manage our budget and keep costs down while always keeping our vision and ideas for our wedding top of mind. She continually amazed us with her ability to remember all of the details involved over many, many months of planning and ensure that everything went smoothly on the day of the wedding, without ever worrying us with details. We are so incredibly grateful to have had her expert help, and would immediately recommend her services to anyone planning a wedding. Pamela truly felt like one of the family by the end of the process, and we can't thank her enough!

Hiring PDR Events was by far the best decision we made during the wedding planning process. Our Castle Hill Inn wedding was perfect thanks to Pamela D’Orsi Ryan! We live in New York City and planning a wedding in Newport, RI was becoming a bit overwhelming. Pamela to the rescue! She helped us select all elements of the wedding décor (the reception tent was beautiful) and worked with all of our vendors to make sure everyone was on time and everything was in place.

In addition to her event planning business, Pamela is the proprietor of New England Invitations, and we made the smart decision to work with her in that capacity as well. Pamela incorporated our art deco theme in all our paper elements – invitations, place cards, menus, table numbers, wedding programs, personalized cocktail napkins. It was so wonderful to have one incredibly organized and artistic person who was responsible for all of the little details that make the difference between a good wedding and a fantastic wedding.

Pamela is energetic, warm and fun. She has impeccable taste and an unparalleled attention to detail. My mom, new husband and I never had to worry about a thing because Pamela organized the entire wedding weekend, including welcome bags, rehearsal followed by a large rehearsal dinner, transportation for bridal party and guests, ceremony and reception. We were totally relaxed and enjoyed every moment. It was my dream wedding: elegant, fun and seamless! We got a ton of compliments on our day and know it all came together so beautifully due to PDR Events. Thank you so much to Pamela and her two lovely assistants.

There are not enough positive superlatives in the world to fully describe how enthusiastic, creative and ever-prepared Pamela D'Orsi Ryan is... she is like Mary Poppins: "practically perfect in every way!" My family and now-husband and I are still overwhelmed by her positive attitude, generosity with her time, energy and efforts, her incredible knowledge and experience... and her insane attention to detail. With Pamela, there is no detail too small... and nothing is overlooked. My wedding would not have been 1/4 as wonderful without her!!

When you're planning something as big as your wedding, you want to know your investment is well handled - Pamela protects your investment! With her at the helm you can be certain that things will go smoothly and all your needs will be met :)

Pamela goes out of her way to understand the "vision" and goals of her bride - and those become HER "vision" and goals. She makes your day happen exactly how you want it to-she doesn't push her own agendas on you and she goes out of her way to capture YOUR wishes. She is with you every step of the way - even if you sign on just to have her be a "day-of-planner" only, her passion and knowledge for the industry is so deep that you'll end up with a gentle guiding hand all along the way as you make decisions and confirm details.

Ladies, if you think you don't need a wedding planner, you are WRONG. Pamela takes all the stress of the wedding away... she is your buffer between you and your fiance, you and your parents, you and your in-laws, you and your bridal party... even you and your officiant! There is no experience Pamela hasn't had and nothing she can't deal with. The process becomes so much easier because with Pamela, you focus on the wedding - you focus on the happiest day of your life... and she handles everything else. Pamela asked me questions for our wedding that I couldn't even conceive of - she is always 25 steps ahead of everyone else, she's organized and super efficient.

I am convinced I could not have gotten through the wedding planning process without Pamela. There are so many logistical aspects to a wedding that I needed help with, and Pamela is a professional who knows everything and put my worried mind at ease. I wanted a Great Gatsby themed wedding, and she knew all the right vendors to go to in order to make my dream a reality. She is an excellent communicator, and gives the best advice. She also is familiar with so many wedding venues and vendors, so she knows exactly what you need and what to ask for.

I never thought I would need a wedding planner, and looking back it was the best decision I made. My wedding day was perfect, and exactly how I’d dreamed it would be, and it’s all thanks to Pamela. When I walked around the venue on my wedding day I was amazed that everything had come to life in exactly how I’d envisioned it. She is amazing, and I highly recommend hiring her!!

I honestly don't think I would have made it through the last few weeks before the wedding without Pamela. Through the whole planning process she was great at offering advice, finding vendor options, and keeping me on track with my end of the planning, but she really went above and beyond the call of duty during the wedding weekend! While I went into full panic mode, she calmed me down and fixed all the little issues on the day of, sent her staff out for last minute errands for forgotten items, and made sure all the vendors set up the perfect event for my husband and I. Once we started down the aisle, it was a perfect day, and it would not have happened without Pamela!

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.

Pamela went above and beyond to make sure each detail was confirmed and double-checked so our day would run smoothly. She was constantly available for me in the planning and decision-making process whether months out or just days before the wedding. Her experience, relationships with quality vendors, and willingness to really receive my ideas made her someone I could easily create a vision with. Moreover, she was immeasurably valuable on the day of for helping to not only orchestrate the flow of the day as we had planned, but to manage surprise needs of guests as well as to keep the momentum of the events moving from prep to post-party. I am a very organized person with a passion for event planning and people who know me were surprised that I wanted to hire a planner. I am SO glad I did and thankful to Pamela for helping to create one of the best days for our families.

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!!
