I am so very glad that social hour event planners were our planners!!!! I cannot say enough nice things about these people! Dani Turner was so helpful and didn't try to fit us into the typical wedding couple mold. Every wedding is a difficult process but Dani made everything go smoothly and assisted at every oportunity to make it easier on us as a couple. Any problem that came up she handled it! Our wedding went off without a hitch and i am still sane, all thanks to social hour events!

I was a fairly organized bride and had planned the majority or our wedding elements in advance; we simply needed someone to come in on the day and execute "the plan." Dani and her assistant were extremely prompt, capable and calm; in short, they brought their "A" game. It was a perfect evening and I didn't have to worry about a thing other than drinking champagne, dancing relentlessly and re-applying my lipstick. Thanks ladies, LA's loss is Portland's gain!

We had our dream wedding, all thanks to Dani at Social Hour Events. After trying to plan an elegant Los Angeles wedding on our own for almost year and feeling incredibly frustrated, we finally met with Dani, and in just one hour she changed our outlook from discouraged to elated. Dani’s calm and positive attitude made us feel at ease. We were working within a very specific budget, and she explained to us right at that first meeting exactly how we might be able to have the wedding we’d always wanted while sticking to our budget and not overspending. The smartest decision we made was hiring her to be both our wedding planner and day-of coordinator.

Dani was AMAZING during our entire wedding planning process – she helped us design a unique “save the date”, she made the venue we really loved work for us within our budget, she set up and took meetings with all kinds of vendors and brought back a great variety of options and quotes for us to choose from. Dani has great taste, and we trusted her to be our style guide for bringing the entire look and feel of the wedding together.

Dani and Social Hour brought a top-notch team of vendors to the table who were all totally great to work with and willing to help us achieve a design that was unique to who we are as a couple. Our wedding was planned perfectly from beginning to end. If there were any little problems on the day, Dani took care of them and no one was the wiser. Best of all, we felt so supported by Dani and her team that we were actually able to relax and completely enjoy our wedding day!!

Not only do we recommend hiring a wedding coordinator to any couple who is planning a wedding, but would steer anyone who wants the same kind of unique and memorable wedding experience that we had straight to Dani and Social Hour Events! You will not find another events company and owner who are more organized, creative, stylish, fun to work with, and dedicated to realizing your vision than they are!

Dani, from Social Hour Events performed as day of coordinator for our wedding, and the day went so smoothly! All throughout the event, Dani was by my side when I needed her, and acting as both logistical point person, and also as an emotional supporter. Weddings are overwhelming times, and Dani there as a friend, on top of her coordinator duties, with a calm attitude, smiling face, and spirit of fun and ease did a lot to calm my frazzled nerves. Also, Dani was a master of the event behind the scenes. Once the reception was underway, I was hardly ever bothered with logistical matters. I never had to leave my guests to see to things, because Dani was there dealing with vendors, the venue, payments, (prepared in advance), and problem solving all without any help from me. Dani also has a list of some fabulous vendors up her sleeve. Though Dani was only my day of coordinator, she guided me to my florist, and to our officiant, and I believe it was her recommendation that helped get a lower price.
Dani, and Social Hour Events helped to make our wedding pretty much exactly how I had envisioned, and I would not only recommend the necessity of having a coordinator, but would steer anyone planning their wedding to Dani/Social Hour. I'd tell anyone that they're the best, most efficient coordinating service for the money. (Not to mention friendly and very fun to work with.)

My wedding was only 10 days ago, but I already feel like an old pro doling out advice to all of my engaged friends. One of the easiest pieces of advice I can give you is to invest in a great coordinator -- you will actually get to enjoy your day!

I worked with Dani from Social Hour Events and I enthusiastically recommend her as a top-notch event planner. Though she was so much more: she was my wedding GURU!! My wedding day was a breeze because I had complete faith in Dani. No detail was missed (and if you're a bride you know how easy it is to get bogged down in the details.) From event design to schedule management to dealing with vendors and everything in between, she is a total pro. And she has tons of contacts. She sourced an entire hair and make up team for my wedding party, for example. She'll handle the tough stuff while you enjoy a special day with your brand new husband or wife!

I don't know how we would have made it through our destination wedding weekend without the ladies at Social Hour. They made everything look beautiful, kept it all running on time, and made sure all of the guests (including me and my husband) had a fantastic time. It was hands down the best 3 days of our lives.

Dani the owner of Social Hour Events is an amazing person to work with. She handled my week of coordinating for our wedding which was really a saving grace to my husband and I.

We are both from out of town and had over 100 visitors in for our wedding and Dani took charge of handling all the details. We really wanted to enjoy the time leading up to the wedding with our guests and were already very busy with LAX runs many times a day. We had 150 people at the smog shoppe with all the fixings and Dani took care of everything from the rental companies, caterers, bevmo, flowers, dj, cake, music, all the personal decor stuff I wanted to do and everything was set up exactly how I wanted it when we arrived. My wedding was flawless, even if there were hiccups, which I'm sure they were on the day, no one could tell. She managed to execute my vision exactly. I'm still getting compliments on how great our wedding was and a huge part of that I owe to Dani

Not only is she very organized and efficient, Dani was also such good energy to be around, She is calm and lovely and she was a pleasure to have as a go to at such a stressful time with so much moving parts. She handles everything with grace and care and I would truly and whole heartedly recommend her.

I normally don't write reviews on Yelp unless I am completely blow away by someone

Best of luck with your wedding planning
