  • Debbie Mcnairy from Ruby Red Shoes were so full of ideas, respectful, sincere, and determined to help us have the best wedding we could have. I grew up in Taiwan and moved to the US after high school, and I was so clueless about how wedding here in the US could be. Debbie helped me by bouncing back ideas from her past experiences and her limitless imagination of weddings, and together we created a beautiful East-West cultural intertwined wedding. Due to my cultural background, I would love to incorporate the Chinese character of marriage “囍 (Xi)” (means double happiness when two marries into one), she was so respectful of my culture and made sure to put every single piece of the wall decoration with the word 囍 in the right orientation, not upside down or pointing left/right. Debbie was so sincere that she really wanted us to be happy with our wedding and accepted changes we requested even at the last minute. She coordinated with all the vendors with changes so I don’t have to... Read more

  • Debbie was absolutely amazing! She was a calming force throughout the planning process and provided me with many great ideas. She asked all of the right questions through the process even about things I never would have thought about. She came up with the perfect day of schedule and kept it all on track, the day went off without a hitch. I cannot recommend Debbie enough. Seriously worth every penny and just an absolute joy to work with!!

  • We had a non traditional wedding party with no formal ceremony, and I needed someone to keep things running smoothly the day of. Debbie's guidance in planning the event was indispensable. She helped me with the overall plan and the minutiae i.e. discussing wedding favor ideas, confirming the cadence of the event, handling vendor communication and finally, keeping the event on track. I would not have had such a great event without her!

    Thank you Jacque for your very kind words about my services. It truly was a pleasure working with you in planning your wedding party! Even though you lived out of state while planning, we had great communication via email and phone calls. It was an honor to witness your family & friends coming together to celebrate your grand night! Please keep in touch! Wishing you Love & Happiness!! Debbie

  • Debbie was great- from our first meeting to Wedding Day, everything went smoothly. She adds more than just Day of Wedding Assistance. Also gave us advice on speeches, music, cake cutting, decorations, hair/makeup, bridal party and groom activities for day of. She didn't change our plans, but gave us gentle advice, suggestions and answered questions. Made a timeline and kept us current on changes. She made planning the wedding actually easier than we thought and were actually able to enjoy ourselves. Wedding Day was unforgettable. Everything came together as we had planned - like magic. We were very pleased with Debbie and her great assistant Sheri. These ladies have great, calming personalities with a dash of sparkle! The bride, groom, my husband and I were very happy. We made the right decision to have Ruby Red Shoes on our team! You'll be glad you chose them too!

  • My husband and I have the most wonderful things to say about working with Debbie every step of the way. Debbie went above and beyond in every aspect, and I highly, highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding planner- without any reservations! Our situation was extremely complicated- we worked in Boston but was planning a wedding in Seattle, both working demanding careers with 70+ hr weeks- we had limited ability to fly out to Seattle frequently, and we got engaged in March but wanted a fall wedding the same year ( 6 months to plan). Debbie worked her magic from start to finish, and she's the reason our wedding came off flawlessly. When we started, I didn't know what I wanted for my wedding or within my budget so Debbie listened to us, came with ideas and was so patient when we needed to go back to the drawing board when we changed our minds. Debbie was our eyes on the ground (given the distance) and she met, interviewed and communicated with all of our prospective vendo... Read more

    Wow...what a fabulous review! Thank You Rachel for your very kind words. It truly was a pleasure and honor working with you & Brad in creating your beautiful destination wedding in Seattle. I would say that communication was the key to our success, yes 90% via phone & email since you live on the East Coast. We discussed what was important to you both throughout your whole wedding planning process. We did locate the perfect venue you were looking for, along with building a team of amazing vendors to be with you on your wedding day. Rachel, it was an honor to witness your beautiful wedding day and be able to watch you, your family and all your friends celebrate the love you share for each other. Wishing you and Brad the Best with Love & Happiness! Please keep in touch! Debbie

  • Debbie did an excellent job at coordinating my wedding before and the wedding day. I was very impressed with her professionalism and her communication methods as she was always keeping me updated on things going on with the wedding and with vendors. She made an event that’s usually stressful for the bride, non stressful at all! Debbie is an excellent planner and I highly recommend you hire her.

  • As the mother of the groom I was so pleasantly surprised that I was included in all the details leading up to the big day. I was able to enjoy every single moment of that day because Debbie took care of everything. I was told you don't need a wedding planner but let me assure you, you do! So many last minute details were addressed quickly & efficiently. You will be so thankful you hired Debbie McNairy.

  • I give all the credit to Debbie for making our wedding day a beautiful and happy event. She took all of the details and designs we discussed throughout the planning stage and executed them with perfection and care. I'm so pleased and grateful to Debbie for her coordinating services. Although it was a hectic and frenzied day for our family and us, she was composed, organized, and in-charge of the entire day. At first, I was constantly checking in with her about vendors, details, etc....but once I realized she had everything under control, I relaxed and enjoyed myself. We literally did not have to worry about a thing with Debbie's presence. We all felt like guests at our own wedding. If there were any issues, we had no idea...that's awesome!!! There was one minor issue of guests starting to leave before our grand exit with sparklers, so Debbie came up with a great solution to move it up on our timeline and our evening ended with a magnificent photo op! The whole day was so special!! I co... Read more

  • Debbie's services were invaluable and she is worth her weight in gold. She took a big burden off my shoulders as the mother of the bride. It is such a busy day full of endless details and having Debbie and her team to assist helped out family enjoy the day too. I highly recommend Ruby Red Wedding and Events for your wedding and having her team present will enhance your wedding experience, like it did ours!!

  • We loved Debbie! An extraordinary event planner, attentive to our needs and wants and knew just what to do to make it happen! She really brought our vision to life at Delille Cellar's in Woodinville, and made sure to contact all the vendors if we needed something. Very good communication, with texting, calling, and e-mail and also meeting in person. She does not miss a beat - very well organized - comes prepared with a printed sheet of all the things to think about and at the rehearsal, same thing a printed itinerary to all the wedding party so no one is left out. She is warm, compassionate and very attentive to detail. Truly wants to make your wedding day the most special day of your life! Also, the day of, she brought her "adult" daughter to help her make sure things ran smoothly-great team! She exemplifies sheer love for her career, which make her stand out from others in her profession! I would hire Debbie again in a heart beat!

  • Debbie was a blessing during my wedding planning. I was planning a wedding at the Sagamore and live in Florida. Debbie helped with every step of the planning and would go above and beyond to make all my wedding dreams come true. During the day of the event, there were some issues that were related to the Sagamore; Debbie quickly fixed all of them and was calming and empathetic when I was a complete bridezilla to be around. Debbie wont just your wedding planner. She will be the bridesmaid/friend that everyone needs on the day of the event. Not sure how I would have made it without her.

    Thank you Sarah for your very kind words on my wedding planning services. It was a thrill & honor planning your dream destination wedding with you! Sarah you communicated that your vision was to have a full wedding weekend of celebration with family & friends arriving from several different states and many from Sweden too. So the planning begun from selecting top star vendors, creating room-blocks, planning a Welcome Party Cruise, Rehearsal Dinner, Persian Wedding Ceremony, amazing Reception with an After Party of course! Yes, as you mentioned a few things happened at venue, that were resolved behind the scenes, this is my motto.. That every wedding couple feels like a guest at their own wedding, we take care of things behind the scenes so you, your family or friends don't have too! Wishing Sarah & Sam Love & Happiness!! Debbie

  • Debbie is very nice, professional and responsive from the moment you contact her. For me, having only used her coordination service, I don't feel that the service provided was worth the money paid. As I said, she's very nice and very professional, and flexible--she even went down to the florist to bring me my bouquet for the first look photos. However, I felt stressed out for the first few hours of my wedding because of all the things that were not taken care of--the bar was set up wrong-- which wasn't her fault, but if I was the coordinator I would have noticed that ALL the dinner wine was put out and none of the cocktail hour items. I was late to the ceremony because I was resetting up the bar in my wedding gown. The band was never brought down to the ceremony, they were waiting, and finally one of our groomsmen brought them down just in time for the ceremony--they should have been playing For the whole arrival/seating. I'm sure there are things that Debbie did that I didn't notice t... Read more

    Sorry, I did not meet all your exceptions with all your chosen vendors. I try to do my best in coordinating all wedding aspects of wedding day details. Your wedding took place on a amazing property of YMCA Camp which is spread out & vendors were told by me, that more prep time would be needed, due to dropping off equipment, parking lot in different location & walking back to wedding location. Catering staff set-up reception tables with 2 wine glasses rather than your request of 1 wine glass per guest, so the cocktail bar would have plenty of wine glasses. When Bride arrived to view cocktail & reception area before wedding ceremony, Bartender & Catering staff were in deep discussion of this problem. Bartender, Catering & myself resolved problem with having one of my assistance help remove 1 wine glass from place setting & help Bartender set-up her bar area for cocktail hour. In the meantime, the band arrived on property late & two of my assistance helped them unload equipment & help take equipment to reception area where they unpacked ceremony equipment & went straight to ceremony location where guest had already started to take their seats. I try very hard to control all aspects of wedding details without any problems and I take pride in wedding planning & coordinating details. I am not blaming anyone, But it does takes a whole team of great vendors to be team players with a wedding event.
