    Backyard Bridal Shower Life Savers!

    I hired Rise Event Planning to help coordinate my best friend鈥檚 backyard Bridal Shower. Sam, Julia and the whole RISE team were such a pleasure to work with. I reached out for their services only 4 weeks before the date of the event and they were so accommodating and professional. The team understood the vision I was looking for and helped me get the most out of my budget.

    I purchased the Gold Package and it was worth every penny. Having the RISE team onsite the day of to pull everything together really helped me enjoy the party as opposed to stressing about it.
    Thanks RISE!

    Absolutely love this team!

    HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
    Julia and the Rise team helped plan both my Bridal Shower and Wedding and we could NOT have done it without them! :) We connected with the team about four weeks before the Bridal Shower with nothing but a venue and a vision. They jumped into action right away and not only met my expectations and executed my vision exactly how I imagined, but they exceeded my wildest dreams! From communication to constant support, I was so comfortable working with them. Julia was available anytime and all of the time to talk things through or bounce ideas off of. She took away every ounce of my stress in the planning process, actually she took over the ENTIRE planning process :).

    After an amazing experience working together, my husband and I knew that we needed their help planning our wedding. With a few months between the two events, they once again jumped into action to help us make our dreams come true. Julia attended meetings with my decorator and helped liaise with all of our vendors. The entire team was punctual, supportive, kind and extremely professional with our guests. The entire day went without a hitch because they were at our side making sure everything was smooth. After an amazing working relationship, the absolute cherry on top was the moment my husband and I walked into the reception venue with tears in our eyes. It was perfect, stunning and beyond anything we had ever imagined. Julia and the team continued to ensure that the reception was smooth and successful! Overall, they made our planning experience and wedding day more magical with their support and presence.
    We would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!!
