The most gratifying part of being a wedding planner, are the kind words that you receive from the couple after you have successfully brought their vision to reality and making sure that everything went off without a hitch. Whether they are emails, phone calls, or handwritten notes, the kind words from my clients make my heart swell with so much joy and constantly reminds me of why I chose wedding planning as my profession.
This team is AMAZING I could not have asked for a better group of people to have by our side. My wedding was a success because of you all. Although there were some hiccups ( with venue) Ari and her team made sure everything went smooth and the way I had imagined. I absolutely can not think of a better event planner to work with, from the first day we meet she was so awesome and made us feel at ease.

Ari is the BEST!!! Don't worry Bridezillas, she's got it covered. We had the best planning experience with Ari. She gives great advice but let's you have your day. She is the calm in the storm and I don't know what we would have done without her. I would most defiantly recommend her and her crew.

Ari and her incredible team went above and beyond to help make my wedding day absolutely beautiful and stress-free. From the face-to-face meetings, email communication, rehearsal, and actual wedding day coordination, Ari was always professional, prepared, easy to communicate with, and detail-oriented. She listened to my vision for the day and handled all my wedding decor and behind-the-scenes work like a pro! I know this job is hard work and I was beyond impressed by how well her team executed my wedding vision. On top of her work ethics and expertise, she is one of the most genuine and warm people I know - it was an absolute delight working with her!

Planning a wedding is no joke, but to do it alone is even that much harder! I'm so thankful that we choose Events by Ari! After a stressful 5 months of trying to plan on our own we decided that we needed Ariana and her staff. They have the best attention to detail and when she tells you that they are there for the Bride and Groom she really means it! There was not a moment that went by that she was not helpful or able to relieve some stress from us! She recommended a few vendors to us and they were amazing as well! I just reflect on my day and think that she took my vision and just amplified it. There was not one single person who didn't compliment us on the reception outcome! I'm so grateful and will forever remember that my day was perfect and we have Events by Ari to thank for that!

Planning a Quinceañera for my daughter was both exciting and overwhelming. From the start I knew I needed help. On my first visit with Ariana, I knew I had found the right team. My daughter and I had a vision on how the room should look, and it was set up exactly how we envisioned it. Ariana and her team were very attentive and professional.

Julian and I are on our way to Jamaica! But... before we leave we wanted to take a quick second to thank you for everything that you did for us on Saturday. It was exactly what we envisioned and we will forever be grateful. From our first face to face at Starbucks a year ago I knew I could count on you. You were professional from the very beginning and always ready and willing to help. I had several family members and friends approach me on Saturday to tell me how amazing you and your girls were! My dad even said " your wedding planner was so nice, even though she was working she was smiling the whole night and I really liked that". We just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate you! Please continue to do what you do. Thank you for making us feel so special!

I don't where to begin. From the moment I met her all the way through the planning process, up until the very end of the wedding (7/2/16), Ariana was the warmest and sweetest. She gave me peace of mind with my vision. She was understanding and attentive. I had lots of ideas and notes and she was an amazing soundboard and always exuded confidence. She knew exactly what I wanted and executed seamlessly. It was great to be able to trust someone with such a big day, and even better when you're working with someone who is such a sweetheart. I highly recommend Ari, because she is passionate about what she does, and she truly cares about the people she's working and collaborating with. She has a magnetic personality and she won't disappoint you. Finally, everyone told me that weddings don't start on time or end on time. I had a full itinerary and it was important to me that it was followed. Ari understood this, and I'm happy to say my wedding started on time and ended on time:) Thank you Ari! Xo

Ari and her team were absolutely amazing. From the very start she had an engaging personality, was always very warm, and always attentive. She executed our wedding perfectly and could not have done a better job. My bride had a pretty lengthy vision and Ari hit it out of the park. I highly recommend her. If I could give more stars, I would. She's simply the best and made our wedding an unforgettable experience, for my wife and I, and all our friends and family. Thank you Ari!
The Riverside County & Richard T. Fields Bar Associations luncheon planning was the best!. Your professional assistance towards coordinating everything from the catering to the execution of the luncheon was superb. The RCBA & Richard T. Fields Bar Association luncheon guest speaker was Attorney Carl E. Douglas and the room was full. Having your assistance helped make the event a fluid success. Thanks again for a job well done and be sure that we will call on Events By Ari for all our future activities.

Where do I even begin.... We hired Ari and her team for day of coordinating for our recent wedding in Temecula on 8-29. All my husband and I were concerned with and expecting was someone to help us out with our day of timeline, coordinating and organization of our day. When I say that Ariana and her team blew us away with her service, care, professionalism, attention to detail.... it does not even begin to do her justice. From the time we met, to the pre-wedding meetings, rehearsal and dinner to our actual wedding day Ariana went above and beyond the call of duty. I was no bridezilla :), but her staff was basically waiting on me and my wedding party hand and foot, without us even asking. The weather was about 100 degrees, and there was never a moment that we didn't have a cold bottle of water in our hands, a snack to keep us energized, keeping us on time with our timeline of events.. I mean the list goes on and on and on. I heard nothing but compliments from all of our wedding party and our guests. At the end of the night, saying good bye to Ari, I was in tears because the day was so absolutely perfect and her team deserves all the credit for it. I couldn't have asked for a better coordinator. I would definitely recommend Ari and her team to anyone looking for her services. Although all of her staff was amazing, I want to give an extra special mention to one of Ari's staff members Lauren. She handled the day so graciously, even with having to clean up a couple messes ;). Ari, thank you so so much for making our dream wedding come true. We love you like family

My family and friends thought the same and felt that you guys did such an excellent job!Nick and I just want to thank you so much for everything. You and your staff are THE BEST! We are so grateful, everything went absolutely perfect!
-Nick and Stephanie (Bride and Groom)-
Awesome service! Great job! Got everything in order with short notice, made sure that we were happy and that everything we wanted/needed was taken care of. Rehearsal was awesome and it was made sure that I got everything I wanted (order of bridal party) the way I wanted it and had great suggestions. During the actual ceremony it was made sure that everything flowed smoothly and even though we had a hiccup last minute with a bridesmaid showing up late, Events by Ari kept everything flowing and was able to roll with the punches! Great service! Definitely recommendable!

Working with Ariana was wonderful she made my dream day a reality I had no stress and no worries that day it felt good to know the only thing I had to do that day was wake up get dressed and meet my best friend at the end of the isle. And if it wasn't for ari I wouldn't have been able to do that I didn't have To worry about if the room was decorated right or where to go because she made sure all that was taken care of. She truly made my day the best stress free day thank you ari and she also did my baby shower and that turned out just as wonderful I will continue to go to her.

If there was one thing I can recommend for any bride-to-be on her big day, I say this...BOOK Events by Ari for your special day or any event. This is a Coordinator that is incredibly professional, warm-hearted, and most importantly on point with everything. She met with me and my husband months before our big day at our venue to get insight on our vision, e-mailed and or called us to clarify every aspect of the event that you easily could forget about. Never did I feel stressed, thankfully Ariana addressed each detail, called every vendor, her presence was known and so appreciated. On our wedding day November 7th, 2014, I walked into our venue in Riverside, CA to see Ariana and her superior staff execute my wedding vision to perfection the décor, window and ceiling treatment beautiful. Our reception was relaxed, our guests welcomed and directed, every part of the event stayed on schedule because of this wonderful woman and her staff. This is what you need for your event, because my husband and I got to enjoy the reason for our special day, with no worries just love and so many memories. I wish you could be in my life every day Ari, haha!
