I worked with Eva @ Red Velvet Occasions to plan my October wedding. She was so easy to work with and was very responsive when I had questions. Eva was able to provide valuable suggestions and helped me through all of the wedding planning. Our wedding was beautiful and we had no major issues throughout the entire event. We would definitely work with Eva and Red Velvet Occasions again!

I cannot speak more positively about Alison with Red Velvet Occasions! We were so pleased with how everything turned out for our wedding on 9.10.11. During the wedding planning process, she was constantly checking in with me to see how I was doing and offering advice whenever possible. She was always available for questions and to discuss my random thoughts about various wedding details.

The day of the wedding was amazing and we couldn't be happier. Alison was constantly on top of everything and was sooooo calm the entire day! You can't ask for anything more in a day of coordinator. I was able to relax and trust that she was taking care of whatever little snafu's came up (which is inevitable!)

I'm so glad that I hired a coordinator and I am double glad that we went with Red Velvet Occasions!

After many searches of trying to find the right wedding coordinator who would be the right fit for us, I ran into Eva of Red Velvet Occasions, at a Bridal Show. Instantly I knew she was the right one for our wedding. At our first consult, she put me and my fiance at so much ease, we felt safe, and she made us feel like we were friends. A feeling that we needed so badly to feel when hiring someone to handle our day. Not only is she so professional and does her job with so much passion, but she is so personable, fun and creative. Being a designer myself, I had so many crazy ideas, instead of telling me if something wasn't going to work, she instead was able to find a solution that was even BETTER! She is truly fun to work with. Throughout our wedding day she kept the pace of our wedding on time but kept the flow without interrupting it. Which was sooo important to us. Our wedding day was so unforgettable. All my vendors and my guests were so impressed by her. Including, my fiance! He couldn't stop raving about her "I'm so glad we have Eva. I'm so happy Eva is here. Eva's the best." Serious. No lie. If you can impress my fiance you are a keeper. After our wedding, a few have asked us if there were any regrets. I would said no, because we had Eva! I loved every single moment of our wedding. If you're looking for someone that you can trust on the most important day of your life... I'd would say Red Velvet Occasions in a heartbeat.

We absolutely loved working with Eva! She was an incredible wedding planner and helped SO much! We couldn't imagine having our wedding without her. Our day wasn't perfect (I think there are always issues that come up) but Eva ensured that things were handled without undue stress on us and so we could really enjoy our day. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Red Velvet Occasions for wedding planning services. :)

After getting engaged, my husband and I started looking into vendors and we didn't even think of having a wedding coordinator. However, a friend of mine who's taken wedding coordinating classes told me that it could save money, time and energy if I found a good one. So I went on a hunt for the perfect wedding coordinator who could fit my bridal needs.

I looked up on google about wedding coordinators and found that most wedding coordinators were overpriced and not within my area. So then I went to a wedding expo in OC and I found Red Velvet. I was looking for a wedding coordinator who knew what she was doing, who was personable yet professional, in my area and within my budget. Eva from Red Velvet Occasions was that and much more. I knew I only wanted a "day of" coordinator since I'm a very much a DIY bride. My husband and I had some vendors lined up by the time we hired Eva, but she helped us on finding several other vendors. My husband and I didn't want to just hire any vendor, we wanted to hire the ones that by word of mouth did a great job. That's what Eva did for us, she gave us several options for each vendor like videography, DJs, media equipment, linen, etc. We were able to save time and found suggestions she gave us to fit into our budget... and you know how budget is so important in a wedding!!

Moreover, Eva was able to help me with several bridal disasters that I'm sure no book or online website could do. She's very knowledgeable in the wedding business and I don't mean just knowing vendors. She knows what to do even when it comes down to the smallest thing; she's always calm, collective and cool---this is what makes her an exceptional wedding planner. Thank you for your fantastic services! You rock!

Eva from the very beginning was absolutely amazing. She was always lightening quick to respond back to any questions way before the wedding day. And she's very well organized, would often give some questions back to verify that the smallest details were in place.

I selected RVO for a few reasons. I got a great impression off our initial consult. Also, the lace package seemed to fit our needs the best. I'm relatively organized, but knew that I would need help for various odds/ends for the wedding. The 3 meetings starting ~ 3 months before the wedding were invaluable, this really helped me get things together and validate the planning when I was on my own.

For the wedding day itself, our event was very well-manned with 3 additional assistants. And I can easily say that her expertise/organization made it much easier to enjoy our wedding that worry about it! RVO's worth every penny, highly recommended!

Eva and her partner in crime, Charlene, make a great team. These two women are detailed and know exactly what a bride wants without having to say too much. In our eyes, as the bride and groom, they executed our day perfectly! Everything went well and followed the wedding itinerary without any issues (that we know of!). Whatever fires there were that needed putting out - they handled without us knowing, which is what you want on your big day.

Eva and Charlene even went beyond the call of duty. After some dancing I found my flip flops at my table when I said my feet were hurting - I can't believe they ran up to my room to get them! Throughout the night they also made sure to keep checking up on us to make sure we were OK and if we needed anything. It was a perfect night. At the end of the night, everything was packed and cleared out of the reception and our gifts were in our room. I love Eva and Charlene! I would recommend them to anyone.

Let me begin by saying that my husband and I had an absolutely beautiful wedding, and we couldn't have done it without Eva and Charlene of Red Velvet Occasions. At first, we weren't sure about hiring a wedding coordinator because we wanted to stick to our budget and figured that we could do it ourselves. But soon we realized we needed a little push and when we met Eva we knew that she could help keep us on track with all of the details. Hiring Red Velvet Occasions was one of the smartest decisions we made during the wedding planning process. Eva gave us suggestions for most of our vendors, including the photographer, florist, and DJ. They all were amazing, and my husband and I could not have been happier with them. Throughout the process, Eva and Charlene helped us with anything we needed, made suggestions, paid attention to what we wanted and envisioned, and helped us stay on top of everything. On the day of the wedding, everything went smoothly and I didn't have to worry about anything because I knew they were taking care of things. Afterwards, my guests complimented how wonderful everything was and how everything ran efficiently because Eva and Charlene did an amazing job. To anyone who is debating whether or not to use wedding planning services, hire Red Velvet Occasions. You won't be sorry!

I am so thankful that my husband and I made the
decision to hire a wedding planner. I think I would

if it were not for Charlene! She was far more than
what I expected from a wedding planner. She was
always on top of everything and listened very
carefully to what I wanted and went far and beyond to
help me achieve my dream wedding while staying within
the budget. She is a VERY good negotiator!!!! She
always returned my phone calls within a reasonable
amount of time and was very good at calming me down
and letting me know that everything will be taken care
of. Our wedding day went by perfectly...well, I
surely didn't notice that anything went wrong!! I
highly recommend Charlene's services to make your
wedding day wonderful!!!
