I can not possible say enough good things about Ted Martinez! He and his team were one of the best decisions we made in our wedding planning process! After much searching, my husband and I found and met Ted approximately 8 months before our wedding. Working with Ted, sharing our visions, collaborating our ideas for our "perfect wedding," really made it the best day of my life! We were planning a Virginia wedding from New Jersey so it was definitely a plus that Ted knew and introduced us to the best vendors in the industry, it saved us a lot of guess work and time. Ted was always an text, call, or email away, with absolutely no delay. Our wedding day went perfectly with no incident thanks to Ted and his team. His team was extremely organized with itineraries and responsibilities in hand. He and his team were ready for any situation. The wedding and reception, what can I say...I never imagined how beautiful everything would turn out...it truly did take my breath away! My husband and I constantly look at our pictures and watch our videos regularly and are just in awe...we actually get sad that we can't relive that day over and over again! Ted's vision, his eye for elegance, and his professionalism really made our wedding "the best day of my life!" I did not stress out once during this whole wedding planning process and it definitely was because of Ted Martinez!

Ted and his team are wonderful to work with. We had a destination wedding in Aruba. Not only did his team execute all details of the wedding perfectly, they were able to provide exceptional service in the preparation of our rehearsal dinner, catamaran excursion, and after wedding brunch. We had a lot of moving parts to our three day wedding celebration, and Ted and his team were with us every step of the way to ensure all aspects of our special occasion were taken care of. They are are a professional, personable, and attentive event management team that will definitely not disappoint. Waiting for our next special event so we can use Ted Martinez Event Management Team once again =)

Our wedding was a dream come true! Ted and his team made all our hopes of a perfect day and ideas come to life while also creatively introducing his own ideas for us that fit our wedding theme and especially our personalities. I had a lot of ideas and he truly brought them to life in the most beautiful ways that I could not have imagined. He has vision and he earned our trust to the point we told him he could make decisions on our behalf. His team was on point with every detail and coordination. Our family and friends still talk about how amazing the wedding was because of Ted’s team and how lively details and smoothness of the day were. The other vendors also appreciated Teds warm personality, his organization skills, and enjoyed working with him. Ted and his team are so amazing they really don’t even need a recommendation because anyone who’s been involved in one of his events can’t help but to spread the word. We’re confident word of mouth will help get the message out about Ted’s team and we are definitely in the group that will keep singing the praises they deserve. So many of our family and friends made comments about how when they have another event they want to hire Ted and his crew. What was most important to us though, was how Ted and his crew made the whole wedding process and the wedding day for my husband and I as well as the wedding party, stress free. He was always on time with deadlines and kept me abreast of what was being done as well as things that we needed to complete. Also its worth mentioning that he coordinated all of this while we were living in NJ and the wedding was in Ohio. Words cannot thank him and his team enough for the happiness and joy they brought to us that day. They truly ROCK!

Ted was AMAZING!! Since the moment we first met with Ted, during our wedding, and until now he is always full of energy, very positive, fun, and full of creative ideas. He made sure that our wedding remained very personal for us through ideas that were out of the box. All the bridal party was stress free. All his crew and vendors are very courteous and reliable. During the reception, few of our guests approached me and complimented on how well the even was put together and well organized . Our wedding turn out more than we dreamed off, even my husband and I were full of awes during the wedding. He was able to put together a very memorable event, not just for the bride and groom, but also for all the guests. Even after few years being married, everyone whom we invited never fails to talk about our amazing wedding day like it just happened not too long ago. That's how much impact Ted's event touched our life.

Ted is very sincere in putting our wedding together. Not only he cares for the actual event, he makes sure that our planning and meeting the vendors are very memorable and fun. He put together travel plans to NY in search for our wedding bands and also reasonable great engagement photoshoot. He took us to NJ to find a nice Barong. Every time we go to meet the vendors, it's always a positive experience. He helped us plan our dinner rehearsal, our family had so much fun that night that they thought it could be the actual wedding. In a sense, thanks to Ted our engagement were very memorable.

It doesn't end there, his service excelled beyond our wedding day. He helped my husband plan out a surprise honeymoon destination from my husband. At the same time, we was helping me put together a wedding surprise for my husband that takes place across the country. I would say, Ted did a lot of surprises throughout our marriage. He's no longer just a planner to us, he became a very good friend.

Ted has done an amazing job planning our wedding since January of 2012. From the beginning, Ted Martinez has shown great care and attention to detail in our personalized, travel themed wedding.

We had been looking for a planner that could bring great and unique ideas different from the usual cookie-cutter wedding, and Ted brought his "wow factor" touch and produced and designed a fun, unique wedding full of surprises for our friends and family. Ted and his team worked hard and had done an excellent job with great professionalism to make our wedding day a memorable one for us and for our guests.

Our guests felt special during our wedding as they journeyed with us through the Sojourn of GayRyan Air Flight 616. They all loved the thoughtfulness, care and surprises along the way particularly the travel-like environment equipped with customized boarding passes and passports consistent with the theme. Ted and his team created an airport-like atmosphere during the cocktail hour before the guests went aboard GayRyan Air Flight 616 for the main reception. Our guests very much appreciated surprises like the welcome bags, rescue me kits, variety of cupcakes and its innovative display, the photo booth (flipbook) excursion, the Halo-halo bar and snow cone truck (We were the first wedding to have a Halo-halo bar surprise for our guests at the end of a reception) and more (We also surprised our wedding party with a photo-shoot at Norfolk International Airport, and we were the first wedding party to do a photo-shoot in the Tidewater area with security clearance). Ted designed a wedding that definitely summed up both our personalities and delivered exactly what we were looking for which was a fun, unique and memorable celebration of our marriage.

Thank you Ted Martinez and your wonderful team...Love your outside the box ideas and wow factor touch! It was fun planning with you and bouncing off creative ideas.

Thank you Ted Martinez and your wonderful team...Love your outside the box ideas and wow factor touch! It was fun planning with you and bouncing off creative ideas. Read less

Ted was brought in by my floral designer, Ivie Joy. Our wedding was in San Diego, so it was a bit of a challenge to get everyone to California from the east coast, but it all worked out great.
Everyone worked really well as a team. It was amazing to see how fast they worked and how coordinated they were. There were so many flowers! Ted was so enthusiastic and hard-working. And he remembered details that we forgot. In the last week before the wedding, my husband and I were stressing out, but Ted would always manage to make us smile with his cheerfulness or make us laugh with a joke. We're so happy that he was a part of our wedding.

Ted was a present from my sister. No idea on the cost but whatever it is...it is worth working with him. I have received positive comments on Ted's organization especially on the day of the rehearsal and the wedding.

Two words we describe Ted Martinez, his staff, and work: You Rock!!

I am so glad to have you and Christina throughout the wedding process and the day of. You catered to me, my family, and my husband. I hope we get to work together for future events!

Love

Maria & Brett

Our Engagement Party was on Sunday, September 18, 2011 in Brooklyn, NY. My fiance and I knew we wanted something "different" and consulted with Ted. We knew Ted for some years and had attended some of his events, parties and fashion shows in New York City, so we knew his work and that he was our guy!

After several correspondence, we found a unique, "different" venue in Carroll Gardens called the Green Building. We toured it with Ted and knew that this was the place and immediately booked it. The challenge with the venue was that it was raw space and we would have to decorate, hire outside staffing / catering, music, food & beverage, etc. on our own. Ted already knew our vision with the space and immediately went to work...

Ted successfully planned and executed our Event to a "T" and we can honestly say that it would not have been possible without him. His hard work and dedication is obvious in his work: The night before our party, Ted was up until 3am making hand-made boutonnieres, helping with decorations, planning logistics for supplies and set up, and all of the little things that we ourselves would have forgotten. The next morning he was at the venue at 8am to set up until the end of our party 12am that same night!

He is very tentative and really listened to our wish list. He was very organized and had a scheduled timeline for us so we did not miss a step and kept us on track. His correspondence is always friendly and professional. He responds immediately via email, phone, text, gchat, facebook, etc. He even scheduled a few "emergency" meetings and conference calls with us closer to our Party. Ted also did his best to keep us within a realistic budget and gave the most cost-effective options. I can honestly say that we SAVED more money by hiring him, than if we planned it on our own.

Ted comes very highly recommended from us indeed! - Michelle & Julius

I first met Ted at my friend's wedding back in February. I was a bridesmaid and was truly impressed with when I saw him in action the day of the wedding. My husband and I had plans to marry in August and although we were interested in getting a coordinator, we thought we'd try it out ourselves first. We started planning in March and by April, we got in touch with Ted. Ted Martinez is a miracle worker! He started by getting to know us and really took the time to listen to our "love story" and dug deep as to what our vision was because we really had no clue. He presented fresh ideas to the table and was always in contact with us. My husband and I have challenging work schedules and Ted made sure the appointments with our vendors revolved around our availability. Ted is flexible, reliable, professional, and easy to work with. We've developed a closeness to him and have truly gained a new friend. You can tell Ted has a passion for what he does because he genuinely cares about the bride, the groom, and the event. Being in the hospitality industry myself, I see so many planners and coordinators that treat each event the same but Ted makes you feel like you're the only wedding he's planning. He has to be working around the clock because he is so attentive all the time that you never have to worry or wonder whens the next time you'll hear from him. On the day of the wedding, he PERSONALLY checked in with me, then my husband, and then the church and wedding reception venue to ensure everything was going as planned. Our parents were very happy with all the events from start to finish and they knew, it was due to the result of well planning and execution thanks to Ted. He also had 2 assistants on the day of the wedding, Caitlyn and Danette, who were so sweet and just as pleasant and outgoing as him. He couldn't have chosen a better team. I could go on and on about how satisfied and thrilled I am to have had the opportunity to work with him but I'll sum it up in a few more sentences. I HIGHLY suggest, that if you're planning a wedding, to get a wedding coordinator. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND, that if you choose to hire a wedding coordinator, Ted Martinez with Ted Martinez Events is the ONLY way to go. Thank you so much Ted! Ramises and I couldn't be happier! You are AMAZING!!!
