  • Less than 3 weeks before we were scheduled to host my son’s rehearsal dinner the restaurant cancelled. Almost 250 miles from the location I had to find a trusting soul and up pops Deborah! It was with total blind faith I put my event in her knowledgeable hands. Not an easy task for this control freak! Within hours of contacting her she had the plan together. Tent and table appointment, Noah’s of Greenport as our catering option and all the miscellaneous pieces of the puzzle that comes with preparing an event. Her professionalism and attention to detail were perfect. Always available for a conversation or quick response to a text. I would not have been able to do it without her. She orchestrated an absolutely am and perfect evening that my guests are still raving about😀❤️

    I'm so sorry for the delay in getting back to you Kelly - I always forget to respond. It was my pleasure to work with you and I thank you for putting your trust in me; I know how hard that is to do. Please give my best to your family and thank you for taking the time to write a review; I appreciate it!

  • My fiancé and I have been anxiously awaiting our July 2020 wedding since we booked with Deb in 2019. Due to the unfortunate recent events we have decided to postpone until July 2021. Deb and her staff could not be more understanding, accommodating or respectful of our concerns. She worked with us to find a new date that worked for both parties. Deb has been accessible and approachable to every question, comment or concern we’ve had. We cannot wait for our wedding and hiring Deb as our day of coordinator was the best decision we’ve ever made! You will not be disappointed in the service provided!

    Janine!! Am I going to get 2 reviews out of you? lol. I know you wrote this a long time ago, but I am sitting here going through old emails and several reviews popped up that I didn't respond to. Thank you for taking the time to write this, and we are very excited to finally get you to the finish line next year. :)

  • I would not even think about planning an event without Deborah Minarik Events. At first I was skeptical about needing a wedding planner, but in the end, she not only saved my daughter's wedding but made it the most beautiful day ever. My daughter had to replan a wedding when her original venue cancelled eight weeks before her date. Deborah was always on top of things, organized and professional. We had a lot of hurdles to overcome during the second planning and Deb kept us calm and made the day a total success. If it wasn't for Deborah, we also would have not known about Noah's Catering in Greenport, which was fabulous.

  • I worked with Debbie & Jenna for my Summer 2020 wedding and they were absolutely fantastic! They were there to help me every step of the way when I had to totally change my wedding plans. They took care of everything 100% during the actual event and I had nothing to worry about besides having a great time on the big day. I HIGHLY recommend!

  • I don't even know where to start but Deb was an absolute life saver!! We got married on September 18th and found Deb a few months prior once we knew COVID wasn't going anywhere. From my first call, Deb had the calming presence I so desperately needed. She helped us cancel our venue and once we found a private home to rent, she led us to an incredible catering team and rental companies. On the day of, she arrived early and just make magic happen. Our wedding party still talks about how much they loved her too!

  • Deborah was helpful! Especially as we planned our wedding during COVID and in the midst of so much uncertainty, Deborah reassured us every step of the way. We were able to plan our wedding the way we wanted and she always jumped in to assist. We completely put our trust in her and used all of her recommendations to help create our special day. We really felt like she had our backs throughout all of the months leading up to our wedding.

  • Where do I begin... Deb has done SO many parties for my family over the years, so I knew when we cancelled our destination wedding for the second time, and moved it to my parents home, that Deb was the only one for the job! She was organized, completely prepared for the insane task. The days leading up to our at home wedding were stressful to say the least, and Deb just took it all on her shoulders and handled it like the BOSS she is! We couldn't have pulled this wedding off without her, and for that I'll always be grateful! Anyone planning a wedding, either at home, or in a venue should be calling Deb, you'll thank me later!

  • Deb and Becky are AMAZING!!! My husband and I got married on LI but we live in NC so planning a wedding from a distance can be a challenge, but with Deborah and Becky, I didn’t have to worry about a thing! They made planning our wedding enjoyable and took all the stress out of it. Deb had the best recommendations for vendors and I felt at so comfortable using people she trusted and of course, she was spot on! Becky was my DOC and she was on top of everything! There is no way I could’ve done it without her nor would I have wanted too. I was actually able to enjoy my wedding because no one came to me with questions – Becky took care of everything! She was also super prepared with her “Mary Poppins” bag full of everything you could ever imagine you *may* need. I can’t express the gratitude I have for all they did for my husband and I – our wedding was absolutely perfect. Using Deborah Minarik Events was the best decision ever for our wedding

  • Janet was my day of coordinator from Deborah Minarik Events and I honestly cannot describe how amazing my experience was with her. At the beginning of our wedding planning, we decided against a wedding planner, as it did not fit into our budget. Weeks before the wedding I had a little bit of a melt down and decided I needed someone there to support me with handling the vendors and timing the day of the wedding. I called her and she was there and ready to help me with anything and everything. Janet created a timeline for us, contacted all of the vendors, and was basically superwoman the day of the wedding. I didn’t really grasp just how helpful she would be until the day and wow was she amazing. Janet was with me the entire day of the wedding until the end of the reception when she loaded everything into the car for us. To give a few examples of specific things she did that were above and beyond; Janet went out and bought me lipstick as the makeup artist forgot to bring a backup for m... Read more

  • Deborah was recommended to us by our venue, and we are so glad she was part of our day! From the start, Deborah helped me figure out solutions to tricky planning details, and offered great advice based on her experience and familiarity with our venue. I felt very confident in her hands! On the day of the wedding, Deborah was a rockstar! She helped organize all of my little day-of details for my photographer and videographer, and even steamed my veil! She kept everything moving according to schedule and was the one everyone turned to with questions. My family loved getting to know her. Deborah executed all of our plans brilliantly so that we could take in the love and joy that surrounded us. Highly, highly recommend Deborah!

  • I hired Janet as my DOC and it was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding. As I do event planning in my 9-5, I knew that in order to fully enjoy my wedding that I would need to step back for the day and let someone else run the show. Janet was my calming force, even when the tent fell down over night and she came early and assured me everything would be fine (which it ended up being). She was thorough throughout our communication process and made sure everything ran so smoothly the day of. It was a true gift to be able to enjoy every part of my wedding thanks to Janet. I would recommend her in a heartbeat and would consider her a friend. If you are even a teensy bit on the fence about hiring Janet or any of the ladies from DME, just DO IT! You will not regret it and will be so thankful you did. Janet, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you SO much!!!

  • From the moment my fiancé and I hired Deborah we knew we no longer had to worry! Since day one she has been nothing but amazing. We had our wedding on Fire Island and the details that went into it were absolutely crazy and she kept me sane the whole time and always found an answer for our next situation. The day of our wedding she was calm the ENTIRE time. I don’t even know how she does that! All while staying so calm, she DID NOT miss a single beat. I woke up the morning after my wedding and couldn’t even believe how one person is capabale of doing as much as she did for us the day before. She cane with an actual suit case of every single thing a bride would need in case of an emergency. She ran up to the deli to get my nieces breakfast. The bridal part ran out of champagne and she comes walking back with bottles in her arms. She was with me from the moment I was getting ready in the morning till the moment my husband and I got to the house that night (she literally walked us hom... Read more

  • There is no doubt in my mind that Deb is the reason for my perfect wedding. The woman is a magical unicorn disguised as a human. There's no other way to explain how she does what she does while making it all appear effortless. I can echo what all of these reviews have said about Deb and her team, so I'll include a few anecdotes specific to my experience. After spending hours at the salon with my bridesmaids on the day of my wedding, I arrived back at my house only to discover that the heat and humidity had completely destroyed my hairstyle that had looked so good just fifteen minutes before. In a panic, I asked my sister what to do. She said "we're going back to the salon." That's when I knew it was really bad. We were an hour behind schedule when I texted Deb to say I was getting my hair completely redone. She responded, "No worries! Don't stress." That's when I took a deep breath and realized everything was going to be okay. No more texts were exchanged between us. She made sure ever... Read more

  • My husband and I got married on 7/14/19 and had Janet as our Day of Coordinator. Hiring her was the best decision we made throughout our wedding planning process and she blew any expectations we had out of the water! We wanted a Day of Coordinator to put our mind at ease just in case anything came up during the wedding day and inevitably things did. Janet was so professional and handled everything while being calm, cool and collected. My husband and I loved her and so did our bridal party! If you're questioning whether or not to book with Deborah Minarik Events...do it! You will not be disappointed!

  • I truly don’t believe my wedding day would have been as perfect if Debbie wasn’t there to coordinate it all. She made me feel so relaxed throughout the entire day, and the day went by without a hiccup. Debbie is a true professional and is there to help with even the smallest of details. We had a situation where my dress got really dirty during outdoor pictures. And Debbie sprung into action to make sure it was cleaned up before the ceremony. She’s a master at what she does, and couldn’t have asked for a better coordinator to help me through my wedding day. Thank you so much Debbie - I cant put into words how thankful I am to have had you there helping me through it all. You kept my nerves and my now husbands nerves calm and relaxed all day long. You’re the best! Thank you again!!!
