I hired Renee to take care of my daughter's wedding in Santa Cruz. My daughter lives in Washington State so she talked to e-mailed Renee to make sure she understood everything. She was told that 50 chairs would have to be taken from truck to the beach and set up, string shells across back of chairs, roll out runner, get chairs back to where truck would be picked up and pay the chair vendor, set up centerpieces, put favors out, disposable cameras and voille candles. Then pay other vendors and collect product to return to florist. When we arrived to the beach she was standing around and all the guests and truck drivers were putting chairs on beach. The chairs got set up and she did not know how to string the shells I had to do it, the Mother of the Bride. The maid of honors husband to put out the runner. When we got the restaurant she and her assistant were sitting down. My friend had to most of flower set up etc. I was upset and asked her what she was doing. She informed me she had done everything she was suppose to. I told her most of the guests etc did the work. She started pointing her finger at me and I asked her not to but she continued. We got in a heated conversation and she informed me she could not help it if others helped them. She refused to stay so I went to get her check and while gone she complained to my guests that she was embarrassed and she had bad feet, etc. SHE KNEW IT WAS ON THE BEACH. A guest had to ask her to please leave and go to her car. Believe me the guests including everyone else were very disappiointed with her and no one out of the 50 guests whould recommend her nor would I. She did not contact any of the other vendors before the wedding and the DJ told me she is the first wedding planner who has never contacted him. Please do not ruin your special day by using YLW events.
Renee did a great job at my wedding reception. i would definately recommend her to my friends.
Renee provided food prep and serving at my wedding for 100 guests. Her flexibility shined, as I hired her to work with a small group of servers she had never met in the past and she was willing to stay later to accommodate changes in our schedule that night. Her services were excellent the day of our wedding and the food kept coming out of the kitchen all night long. She also did a tremendous job with clean up. She was willing to meet with us ahead of time to discuss all the details and took initiative at our wedding so we never had to worry about anything. We would recommend Renee for a future event!
