  • I was absolutely DREADING the thought of having to put together a wedding. I was someone who did not go on Pinterest or have any idea what the first step in planning a wedding was. I knew that if I did this on my own, the wedding and reception would fall very short of being a perfect day. I needed a wedding planner. I did a lot of research online and reached out to a plethora event planners. Pilar got back to me almost IMMEDIATELY and I instantly felt at ease speaking with her. Because of her responsiveness, there was no other option in my mind…Pilar was going to help me with my wedding. Pilar is more than just a planner; she is your best friend. Pilar is there for you every step of the way and provides creative ideas for you and your guests while remaining within your budget. She is honest in everything that she does and always has her client at the front of her mind. The attention she provides you is second to none and she makes you feel as though your event is the only ev... Read more

  • I was silly and thought I only needed a planner for the day. I ended up needing Pilar throughout the entire process. She was extremely professional and responsive. Every vendor she recommended was amazing and top notch. She kept us on track and even got my stuff together at the end of the night. Our day was beautiful and perfect!

  • We worked with Pilar throughout the course of a year to plan my wedding and it truly was one of the best decisions we made throughout that process. We knew what we wanted and could conceptualize the vision, but actually creating it was where Pilar stepped in. She introduced us to the most incredible vendors, added all the little beautiful details before we even thought of them, and was mindful of whatever stress we were experiencing by taking many tasks on herself. We were saved many times by her organizational ability, attention to details, forward thinking, and flexibility to always being available no matter the day/time. We planned a whole weekend of festivities for our guests, with a welcome dinner, rehearsal dinner, golf outings, and the actual wedding event (ceremony/rehearsal) and it all couldn’t have gone more seamlessly! We are immensely grateful to Pilar and attribute a lot of the success of that weekend to her. We plan on working with her for many years to come for every ... Read more

  • We were a nightmare! Lol. We were very tough, crazy, and chaotic customers. We changed so many details, so many different times. Pilar went above and beyond tolerating us, making us feel special, and did it all with a smile on her face. She has the patience of a saint and id refer her a million times over.

    Thank you, Jon! You were not a nightmare- on the contrary, you were amazing! It was an honored planning your wedding.

  • Pilar helped my daughter and I put together the most beautiful wedding and rehearsal dinner. She helped us find unique spaces, wonderful vendors and was always there to answer our questions. Pilar would think of things we hadn’t thought of, tried to anticipate obstacles, so that in the end, both evenings held no surprises. They were wonderful events. I would not hesitate to recommend Pilar.

    Thank you, Molly! It was my pleasure and honor working with you, Kelly and your family. You are a wonderful person! ♥

  • Pilar was a pleasure to work with and took the time to listen to what I needed and provide the best suggestions based on our requests. She was conscious of our budget and worked with us to stay within it. She is extremely professional, prompt and accessible via phone, email and text. I always received an immediate response! I would highly recommend Pilar for your event planning needs. She pays attention to detail, but most importantly, pays attention to you, the client!

  • We were fortunate to win day of coordinator services by Pilar Pava Events in a raffle early on in our wedding planning process. From the beginning we were blown away with her level of commitment and the time and effort she put into our event. She voluntarily came to our tasting at our venue and even followed along to the church--the whole time advocating for us and giving us ideas and suggestions we had not thought of. It is clear that having at least a day of coordinator is necessary to have a smooth wedding and we knew from the start that Pilar was on a mission to do just that. Pilar offered us connections she has, including make up with Saks Fifth Avenue, and was always available to schedule a call or email. Leading up to the wedding, we had a meeting prior to the rehearsal that illuminated how detailed and thoughtful she is when planning events. She was generous in spending time running through every second of the wedding and having us visualize and reflect on even the smallest det... Read more

  • We are extremely satisfied with Pilar Pava Events and highly recommend her. Pilar exceeded our expectations of a “day-of” planner, not just by her excellent skills, but by the attention that she gave us. Besides allowing us to enjoy our daughter’s wedding day knowing that it was in capable hands, she made sure that we had covered all the details prior to the big day. She asked detailed questions, made excellent suggestions and was very organized. Pilar shared a makeup connection that saved us a significant amount of money and by being on top of everything during the reception, we were able to get credit for interrupted service. She was generous with her time and even came to the tasting which was not part of the package. Her influence led to an upgraded cocktail at no additional charge. Had I known how valuable she was, we would’ve opted for a different package. I can think of one vendor mishap that would’ve been avoided by her professional attention to det... Read more

  • From the moment I spoke to Pilar on the phone she stood out among other wedding planners. She was pleasant, professional, and immediately had answers to several planning issues I had. While I only hired Pilar for the day of my wedding she answered several questions I had beforehand and even saved the day when I needed to find a new hair stylist the week of my wedding. Pilar went above and beyond her duties and flawlessly executed all the plans I created for my wedding day. She made it a stress free and perfect day.

    Thank Ashley! You were delightful throughout your wedding planning process and made my life so easy with your event planning skills. Thank you for taking the time to provide me with a review. XO

  • Excellent. Every detail was perfect. During the process I was both annoyed and impressed by the attention to every detail; however, as the event unfolded, flawlessly, I realized that paying attention to every detail, regardless how small, was the key to success. The investment was well worth it!

  • Pilar made everything stress and worry-free and she delivered exactly what we envisioned. She was very patient in pointing us to the right directions, gave us ample choices of suppliers in order to meet our expectations. She’s so easy to talk to, empathetic and compassionate! She even went the extra mile to help us plan our 3-day itinerary for the wedding weekend! Will highly recommend her not just for weddings but for all occasions!
