  • Hello, my name is Cami. I hired Garnished-Events for my wedding on June 13th, 2020. I was most impressed about their ability to cover everything I was seeking. They did our Wedding Planning, Decorations, Bartender and Server Staffing. Every aspect of the wedding was done with care and turned out beautifully. At first, I didn't think I could afford a wedding planner. However, I really didn't want to plan a wedding myself. The stress alone was too much to bare! ESPECIALLY during a pandemic! Our venue recommended Garnished-Events to us. So, I inquired about their Bridal Journey package. It was EXACTLY what I needed. I paid only $1,000 down to start my planning with their team. I gave them my budget, and they started to work. They added a 20% service fee to all of my vendor invoicing, which staying in my budget, it felt painless. It was almost as if I was paying a tip, which I tip naturally anyway. It was truly seamless. They stuck to my original budget at made it happen. The cool part, is... Read more

  • Sheena and her team planned and decorated our wedding!!! Look at these photos! I wanted glam. She gave me glam. I wanted "bright and beautiful" and she did that! The planning was tricky because of Covid, so not many guest attended. However, we live streamed it and it was beautiful! Thank you Sheena! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

  • I have nothing but kind words for Garnished-Events. Our original Day of Coordinator was unable to help with our wedding about two months before our wedding, and Garnished-Events luckily had availability. I could not be happier with working with them. Sheena was great, organized, and detail-oriented. She thought of things that never crossed my mind. It really helped me out, and it was great that she was able to run with all that I had planned for the wedding so far. She offered suggestions based on her experience, and I was grateful for it. She also had her team, Linda and Alondra with her. They were fantastic to work with as well! I highly recommend hiring her and her team for your event! You will not regret it.

  • Sheena was on it from the moment we made contact with her. She was always available when we needed them via text, phone, zoom or email. Her communication was excellent and every single detail was focused on. Sheena and her team did all of our decorations for the reception and they could not have been more perfect. She completely understood our style and the desired vision we had wanted for our wedding day. We are beyond grateful for all of the Garnished Events team who made our day exactly what we had dreamed of! -The Collins

  • Sheena was amazing to work with! She was approachable, fun and genuinely cared for the outcome of the wedding. She organized EVERYTHING! Even down the the table design and flowers. She made sure everything was prefect! She is simply one of those gifted people who are in the right industry. I would recommend her to anyone!

  • I had such a hard time explaining exactly what I had in mind. I used multiple Pinterest boards and random images I found on the internet and presented it to them. It was a lot to sort through and put together to create the final picture and they NAILED IT! EXCEEDED my expectations! Thank you! These women are amazing!

  • I originally contacted them for my wedding in May in Gaithersburg MD. After I paid my deposit, we had to change venues, so our date also changed. I contacted Sheena in January to make sure that was ok and gave them the new date and location, then I emailed them the same. They contacted me the same day with a contract. I signed and paid the full balance. They sent me an email saying thank you. Today, FIVE MONTHS LATER, Sheena insisted that I made a mistake because I originally told them Gaithersburg, even with proof of email and asked that I hire more staff or pay mileage for "my error." She was extremely condescending, trying to make it seem like she was coming up with a solution, but really kept just blaming me for them not realizing it was a different location. I was understandably upset and trying to understand how this happened, and she was even insinuating this was my error, and she kept making comments like "are you done?" I asked if she could explain how that was my error, she ... Read more

We received only your deposit and we offered you a full refund. I sincerely apologies for any inconvenience we may have caused. Please accept our full refund. We wish you the very best on your endeavors.
