Professional and helpful, but you definitely have to stay on top of all the details yourself --you may be caught by surprise at fees or delivery times. Probably best to have a vision in mind before you contact them. The showroom we didn't get much help in, but once we started working with Allison things got better.

Ultimate Events made my wedding more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Allison provided so many fun and creative ideas that I would have never thought of without her. She worked well and coordinated the decorations/rentals with my florist and caterer to ensure all my details were covered-truly above-and-beyond service. She was easy to work with and always returned my emails quickly. She initiated communication when she thought of details that we had not discussed. She is EXCELLENT at what she does and I could not have planned my wedding without her!!

Ultimate events was the required decorator for the venue we used (Minnetonka Orchards) and wow am I happy they were! Allison was extremely helpful with picking a layout for chairs and tables in the tent, and understood exactly the kind of look I was going for. They hung chinese lanterns from the tent at the Orchard and they were SO PRETTY that the Orchard owners asked us at the end of the night if they could buy them from us (they thought the lanterns were ours). Table and chair rental seemed reasonable in price, and we weren't renting china, glassware, or flatware since we had food trucks for dinner. When I called Allison to confirm everything a couple of days before the event, and was panicking about the forecast calling for 90 degree heat, she was able to add two fans to my rental plan for the reception tent without a problem.

Two things that didn't work as well for us: One table wasn't delivered to the correct location, and I wasn't aware until a few days before that while the delivery crew set up the tables to the specification of the plan Allison and I had made together, the delivery did NOT include placing linens on the tables. My father-in-law had to go to the venue the day of with two helpers to place linens and runners and tie sashes around cocktail tables....not necessarily a problem, but definitely something you should know up front. When he did go, it was very clear which tables had which linens, because the rental plan includes all the sizes and the linens are labeled when delivered.

Despite this, I would highly recommend Allison and Ultimate Events for anything! They made it really easy to plan and they have great decor options so you can get away without a wedding coordinator if you want to.

We worked with Ultimate Events for our wedding at Camrose Hill in Stillwater and had a great experience. We were required by Camrose to use them, and it was really nice that they were so familiar with the space. They were flexible with our plans and provided great advice when we needed it. The ceremony was outside, but we rented a tent for backup and ended up putting the tent up away from the ceremony site where it provided nice shade over the bar area. We rented beautiful place settings, silverware, glasses, and napkins. We ended up using a different company for farm tables, because we felt that their long wooden tables were too rustic, but everything else was great. The staff was helpful with all of the setup and clean up.

Unfortunately, due to the exclusive contract they had with the venue we had our wedding at, we were only allowed to go through them for tables and chairs. They are very expensive and we had to spend way more than we wanted for just table and chairs. They were easy to work with and very professional.

We worked with Allison at Ultimate Events- she was fantastic to work with and very timely with her responses to our (MANY) questions. Like everyone tells you- the rentals cost WAY more than you think- and man is it true! Unfortunately, everyone needs a place to sit and a table to eat on, so there isn't much of a way to trim costs when it comes to rentals. But, Allison was great at giving us recommendations on areas we could change or trim without compromising the look and feel of our wedding. We ended up renting pretty much the simplest options and it worked beautifully with our wedding!

What a disaster!!! Do not hire this company!
As my date approached, I had questions arise. Specifically, I needed to know how much money we owed Ultimate Events. I sent them an email and received a response. Based upon that response, I went ahead and paid them that requested amount. Turns out a couple of weeks later, we found out that the amount was incorrect and that I actually owed them about $1300 more. The super annoying thing about that is that when I asked them why they didn't tell me about this when I had asked, the response I received was because their response was based on a different computer program that she didn't have open at the time. If a customer has a question, open the program and get the correct answer! As annoying as this was, this was nothing compared to what happened on my actual wedding day.
I had rented farm style chairs for my wedding. The chairs cost $12/each. I knew that it was going to be a huge expense but I was willing to pay it to get exactly what I wanted. Ultimate Events knew that my wedding was to take place outdoors as my venue is an outdoor venue. On the morning of the wedding, when Ultimate Events was to deliver my rentals (including the chairs) they refused to set up the chairs outdoors. They stated that the grass had a small amount of dew on it so they would not set up the chairs outside and wanted to move my wedding inside. My wedding day was a perfect sunny day - there was no way that I was going to have the wedding inside because of some dew that was going to be dry in a short period of time. News flash! It's Minnesota! There is always dew on the grass in the mornings! Don't rent $12 chairs to people with outdoor weddings if you are going to refuse to
