The Finishing Touch was very useful and helpful in planning my wedding. As someone who knew nothing about the whole event planning thing, they really helped to keep track of the budget and services we would need. Having a wedding is stressful in of itself, and it is a ton of work. Also, I think planning a wedding takes a toll on the relationship between the bride and groom, so I advise you to get all the help you can to take some of the pressure away and keep things in perspective. I highly recommend this wedding planning service to brides, especially to busy women who want a fabulous wedding but don’t have the luxury of devoting their whole life to planning it. It really is a full time job! They also did our stationery so it was nice to have that taken care of in house too.
A huge burden was lifted off my shoulders when Soroya came on board five weeks before our Wedding Day and took over the coordination. She seamlessly picked up and completed all of the remaining tasks that needed to be done in order to make our big day perfect for us. She set up a very detailed timeline for the day and contacted each one of our vendors to ensure that everything was delivered and set up on time. With her experience and expertise in the event planning field, she was also able to provide great suggestions that I would not have considered on my own. Her great idea of adding an arch beautifully set the stage for our ceremony.
Soroya also worked extremely well with the manager of our wedding venue and her schedule for the day really helped him with organizing his team at the site so that everything went smoothly.
We couldn’t have pulled off such a fantastic event without you. Since my mom and I both work long hours, the idea of coordinating florists / bands / food in our free time was not appealing. You asked questions that we hadn’t even thought of and you took charge when I couldn’t deal with certain vendors (i.e. photographers and music ministers).You guys were the best. People are still talking about the candy bar and our thank you notes.
The planning was incredibly helpful -the best part was the amount of support that we received on the day of the event. We honestly could not have done it without the help of the consultants. They picked up the slack when we needed and were attentive to each and every detail. Professional and organized, these planners were an asset to our day. The stationery was beautiful and simple, and it was a pleasure to work with the team.
Words cannot describe how thankful we are for your amazing talent! Thanks to you we had the most beautiful reception anyone has ever seen. Our friends and family cannot stop saying how incredible the centerpieces, cocktail hour décor, signature drink signs, and table numbers were.
Having Soroya and The Finishing Touch handle my daughter’s wedding was the best decision we could have made. Soroya attended to every concern. On the day of the wedding, everything went smoothly thanks to Soroya and Stephanie. I would certainly recommend her and The Finishing Touch to friends and family.
I don’t know what I would have done without Soroya!! She pulled my vision together and figured out what really mattered to me (even when I didn’t know). She highlighted those aspects in the wedding, even though I was 3,000 miles away in Seattle, WA and had only met with her and the FT design team briefly. My wedding day was absolutely gorgeous and I credit its beauty all to Soroya and The Finishing Touch.
Soroya, Priscilla and Misha, thank you for making our wedding day so special. You orchestrated an event that our guests are still talking about weeks later. We could never show enough gratitude to you guys, ESPECIALLY to Soroya. If you can imagine a dream come to life, that’s what she gave us. She made sure our day was worry free and perfect. She was always available for our every wedding worry and her attention to detail, and commitment to excellence was exemplary. We have nothing but compliments for you and The Finishing Touch from our guests. Thanks to Priscilla, every décor detail was stunning. Her creative flare turned our wedding from average to platinum. I came into the wedding planning process not really wanting a big wedding but you made it so easy I would do it again (with the same guy of course). Thanks a million!
Thanks to Priscilla and Leah, our wedding day turned out exactly as we had envisioned. Priscilla meticulously weaved our wedding theme of "A Match Made in Heaven" into every nook and cranny of the church and reception, including the color of the runner in the church to our "blue" champagne. Our event was well planned and organized as our vendors, bridal party, and immediate family received a detailed timeline with all the events of the day so that they knew where to go and what to do. All of our vendors' contact information was included in the timeline in case of any emergencies (There weren't any, by the way!). Leah's attention to detail helped to ensure that the vast amounts of centerpieces and favors that we had were properly set up at the reception. Priscilla and Leah's assistance allowed us the opportunity to enjoy our wedding day without any concerns. We highly recommend them.
Nicole was great in every aspect. She was sweet, helpful, calm, competent, excited, and dedicated. She simply made our wedding day event go exactly how we had imagined. Thanks to her, our wedding was a stunning success and exactly what we wanted. She made everything so relaxing and she was always so easy going. She was so responsive to all our questions and concerns and her replies via email were immediate and we appreciated that as we felt that she had time for us. She is a knowledgeable professional whom we now consider a friend.
We had the privilege of being able to work with The Finishing Touch for our wedding in May of 2008. Candice was there for us whenever we needed her and had an answer to all of our questions. She took care of things before we even asked her to. She was always a step ahead of us. We were also very thankful for Priscilla and Christine who assisted at the wedding. They made our day stress free and so much more enjoyable. We knew with them there, we didn't have anything to worry about!
Candice & Priscilla, We could not have imagined a more perfect day. Knowing that you were there from the start of the day to the end of the night took away any need for us to worry. You took care of everything which allowed us to enjoy every second of our day. It has been such a pleasure working with you. Thank you for our fairy tale wedding!
Thank you and your staff for making my part of Jillian & Alan's wedding so easy to do! I enjoyed watching you all do your work..every detail was attended to, every problem solved with skills and speed, and you all managed to elicit cooperation from all of us service providers to make the day just what Jillian & Alan wanted.
Thank you so much for making the day so special. It really was everything that we had imagined & better; and we would not have been able to do it without you. You truly put us at ease and we were able to enjoy the day.
We have worked with other event planners in the past and I must say that all of our photographers rave about your punctuality and professionalism. It is always a pleasure to work with you and your staff.
I love how you put together E&J's Decor Idea Book and how Candice kept all the ripped out, torn, tattered pages of the magazine pictures, my verbal ideas and ramblings-and you created as a team this perfect "us" montage. Thank you. It makes me feel heard like a bride, excited and very grateful. Thank you! I love it, we love it, and thank you for even creating our color scheme.
The Finishing Touch directed and eased us through the entire wedding planning process, which allowed us to concentrate on work, family and each other instead of stressing over the details on our wedding day and every day leading up to it. We could not imagine planning such a beautiful and flawless wedding without themn! The Finishing Touch is the most important element in any wedding and well worth every penny. Candice is the best!
The Finishing Touch, especially Leah, was a pleasure to work with. Leah was an absolute pleasure to work with. Highly organized and detail oriented, but not too pushy. With your help, I was able to have a stress-free wedding day and enjoy myself!
Nicole & Leah from The Finishing Touch were excellent. Nicole was great, she had a schedule and took charge in situations in a nice, assertive manner. We had a lot of things going on in our wedding with 80% of the guests coming in from out of town and renting sites where we had to bring in everything ourselves for the reception and rehearsal dinner. Nicole and Leah worked well together, not only with each other, but with all our vendors to make the event truly a success. Thank you again, Finishing Touch, and we are so happy we chose you to coordinate our rehearsal dinner and wedding.
Our wedding was all over a year in planning, and throughout the whole process, The Finishing Touch (especially Priscilla) was absolutely incredible. As a bride, I was always worrying or afraid I would forget something, but whenever I would speak to my wedding planner, I always felt better. There were so many details and changes last minute, but thanks to Priscilla, everything went smoothly. I highly recommend The Finishing Touch to any bride who wants their wedding day to be fabulous. The whole team is great!
I must say i never really thought of having a destination wedding, but after seeing the amazing and immaculate job that The Finishing Touch did on Eliu and Jenn's wedding...I would be stoked to have one. In the future when Melanie and I get married I hope we can have Candice and her staff be a part of it....CANDICE EVERYTHING WAS STELLAR...THANKS!
Soroya, Priscilla, and Misha, this note of thanks just can't convey the gratitude that's sent your way, but may these words somehow express thanks for your care and thoughtfulness! Thank you very much for a superior effort on July 19, 2009! Your attention to detail was beyond fantastic. You made a beautiful day better with all of your finishing touches. Thank you once again.
Leah & Nicole, I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed working with you both last week for the Yu-Montgomery wedding. It was a very busy day and I was amazed at the grace & efficiency you two commanded..especially when it got VERY BUSY. Also, thank you for the direction you all gave us every step of the way.
Nicole, we want to thank you for everything you did. We really couldn't have done all of this without you. You did a wonderful job walking us through this process and making sure we didn't have anything to worry about. That's priceless!
