Broadway-themed Bat Mitzvah
RSVP Events helped us plan our daughter's Broadway-themed Bat Mitzvah. Rachel was fantastic to work with! From the very first appointment she was responsive, flexible, creative, and did everything possible to help develop a vision and bring it to life. She has a great network of vendors and researched new ones when needed, and generally made everything as easy as possible for us. She was always available to answer questions and bounce ideas off of, and kept me on track throughout the entire process. I can't recommend them highly enough!!

Best Bat Mitzvah party planners!
RSVP was the best. Rachel was like having my best friend help with all the details. She was responsive and encouraging and had the most amazing suggestions. Having Rachel and Cheryl on site the day of and through our party was the most valuable. They made sure everything looked great and the party went on without a hitch.

Rachel Wood and RSVP are incredible!!
Rachel Wood and her staff are incredible. I would highly recommend hiring them for any event. They are a pleasure to work with, and they completely know what they are doing. Their amazing work will allow you to have a wonderful time at your event. They were our party planner for our son's recent Bar Mitzvah, and it was incredible. Recommend!

Creative, fun professional
Rachel stepped in and expertly orchestrated our day-of logistics for my daughter's bat mitzvah. This included pre-event brainstorming and day-of décor set-up. I was so impressed with Rachel that I subsequently hired her for my company's corporate event!

Wonderful planners that really care about your event!
Rachel and her team did a great job with the Bar Mitzvah party. They brought fresh ideas and assisted in every aspect of the event— catering, decoration, DJ, etc, and were spot-on with every detail!

Day of Planner- Bar Mitzvah
Sherrill did so much to make my event easy for me. My extended family was amazed that I was back at the house enjoying some one on one time with them while all the party prep chaos was occurring back in the social hall. It was so wonderful to just arrive and have everything set up and looking perfect ! I appreciated how easily you came up with ideas and solutions to any and all items that popped up - and reminding me of things I had overlooked. RSVP is an incredible resource, so responsive, and just all-around fantastic support.

Sherrill provided excellent guidance!
We met with Sherrill pretty early in our wedding planning, and she provided guidance that has been my north star throughout. She encouraged me to think about the venue as just four walls-- curate an event that fit our personalities, our budget, and our lifestyle. Don't feel pressured to do anything that doesn't help build toward the attitude and vibe we're looking for.
This was incredibly freeing, helping us really narrow in on the things we care about and designing an event that achieved our goals. Sherrill gave me permission I didn't know I needed to let my sense of fun and whimsy emerge in non-traditional ways. We're getting married and throwing a fun party, our way. Sherrill got our vision, and provided some excellent ideas to get us started!

RSVP's Rachel Wood is the wedding master!
Rachel handled all my set up and day-of coordination with such ease. There was a lot to be done in a short amount of time, and she made sure to execute without me worrying about anything. We had a rough plan drafted of where each vendor would set up and how all my decor would be arranged, but on the day quite a few changes were needed and Rachel handled so seamlessly- it honestly turned out better! Planning all the details on my own and then passing it off to someone on the very day of my wedding was tough (control issues) but we had the best possible outcome. All my guests had the best time and even complimented Rachel's work ethic/style. With all of the bride & groom to-dos, we never felt pressured or rushed- everything was smooth. I would urge anyone and everyone to work with RSVP for full wedding planning and/or coordination. Thanks, Rach!

A chance meeting.
When my wife and I were looking to get married, we tried to plan the whole thing ourselves. We didnt know how much work it would actually take us, and after about 6 months, we gave up and started looking for a wedding planner. We couldn't find any within our budget for a while. Until my mom happened to have an exchange of words with one of these 2 fantastic ladies at a Baskin Robin's in Poway. Even after losing the business card, we were still able to track her down on the internet. Rachel and Sherrill are both fantastic at what they do. They were always quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had, they were extremely flexible with our budget, and they were fantastic to interact with in person and over the phone.
They both helped us stay on time and helped with planning things we never would have thought of.
My wife and I get to spend the rest of our lives together knowing that it officially started with one of the most beautiful days I could hope for. I hope for nothing but joy and success for Rachel and Sherrill.

Thank goodness for Sherrill!!!
Sherrill was amazing! She took such a personal interest in the planning of my daughter's wedding, that I felt as though we were her only clients. Her many years of experience have provided her with a vast body of knowledge, which was very helpful in making decisions, from vendors to minute details. We would have wasted a lot of time without her guidance. My daughter and I felt comforted and confident having Sherrill at the helm during this frenetic and momentous time period. Sherrill is also extremely diplomatic and adept at communicating effectively so as to validate everyone's feelings and choices. Without hesitation I would recommend Sherrill and RSVP Events to plan events of any kind!

Excellent Customer Service
Rachel Wood at RSVP Events was an absolutely amazing party planner! I was extremely detail-oriented with planning our daughter's bat mitzvah and sent Rachel numerous e-mails daily for almost the last 3 months in addition to e-mails and phone calls for about a year prior to her party. Rachel provided the best customer service we have ever experienced and was extremely responsive to all of my questions and concerns the entire time. She truly went above and beyond to make our vision of the party come to life and make everything perfect. We had the bat mitzvah at the social hall of our synagogue and Rachel and her team transformed the party into the look of an elegant ballroom at half the price! They brought in decorations, pipe and drape for the doors, centerpieces, the backdrop, linens, etc. and even came in a day ahead of time to make sure everything was set up and running on schedule. The lighting was beautiful as well. They also helped us with making a seating chart sign, coming up with the signature drink, themed napkins, bathroom decor, and communicating with all of the vendors. Rachel was extremely involved during the party as well to make sure everything ran smoothly. Rachel's partner Sherrill was extremely supportive the entire time as well. Even though I was extremely involved with the planning and detail-oriented the entire time, Rachel and Sherrill never made me feel like I was a nuisance and always followed up on any requests I made (including last minute requests). This is the best party planning service for bat mitzvahs in San Diego and I had several friends ask for their referral information after attending our party. Thanks so much again to Rachel, Sherrill, and the entire team at RSVP events for making our daughter's bat mitzvah such a perfect occasion! We will never forget your kindness!

Vow Renewal Ceremony
What a great experience! Rachel was there every step of the way making sure our special event went off without a hitch. I learned quickly that there are a lot of details that need to be worked out for any event-especially one of this size. I will never do an event without Rachel and the team at RSVP-Invaluable resource and worth the investment!!!

RSVP Events (Sherrill)
Sherrill, at RSVP EVENTS, was absolutely professional and very friendly on every aspect of the wedding coordination! We hired her for a "day of the wedding coordinator," however she kept us completely updated on everything we needed to accomplish ahead of schedule in a timely manner for many months! I wish I would have hired her for my oldest daughter's wedding 9 years ago. I would 100% recommend RSVP EVENTS to anyone considering hiring a wedding coordinator. They are available for the "entire wedding coordination" and "day of wedding coordinator!" Our youngest daughter spent many hours and days and months planning her wedding. It was a tremendous, overwhelming amount of work to do on your own. Hiring RSVP EVENTS (and in our case, we asked Sherrill to be our coordinator), would make everything completely stress free from day one. Sherrill works extremely diligently, is very knowledgeable, and does an absolutely beautiful job! She knows people in all areas associated with weddings (flowers, decorations, venues, etc.) that she can recommend. If we had another wedding in the family, I would definitely hire RSVP EVENTS again! They are excellent! Can not get any better! Be sure to contact them early enough, though, so you can be more guaranteed to book them! We were completely impressed with everything they did for us!

Sherrill was an awesome wedding day coordinator!
Sherrill was awesome for our wedding! She had creative ideas and responded to all my emails quickly! She even met me at my venue and helped map out the floor plan for our wedding night! She was easy to work with, professional, knowledgeable, and definitely knows the wedding industry! She can recommend several vendors for whatever you're looking for! She kept in contact with all our vendors and made the whole wedding process seamless and as peaceful as possible! I would highly suggest using Sherrill for your wedding day!

Picture Perfect Wedding
I thought I could do everything myself for my 50-guest 2nd wedding and reception. I realized I needed help a few weeks before my wedding. Sherrill and Rachel were so understanding and helpful. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Every one of my guests commented how smooth and picture perfect everything was. Little did they know how much of that was due to all the help and guidance they provided both before and on the big day. I definitely should have called them earlier in the process and taken advantage of their wonderful expertise.
