They Love Us

  • Doyin Oluwole, Jan 09
    I just wanted to say that you are God sent and have a wonderful spirit. As you know, it is very important for every bride to work with someone they can trust. You are also very good at what you do and have a sense of calmness, professionalism and completeness. I am overwhelmed by all your help at the crucial moments and the good attitude you have. Thanks for working with me. I will refer you to everyone I know. Thanks for making my wedding a huge success! I was very pleasantly surprised with the decor at the reception and how everything ran smoothly. I will never forget you!

    I would like to express my appreciation to you for a job well done on Saturday. I was very impressed by your coordination and organization of Jeanette and Ben’s Wedding. It was nice meeting you and I hope to work with you again in the future.

    For all you brides thinking that having a wedding planner is an unnecessary expense, you are wrong! Especially, if you use Tope as your wedding planner. Tope is a wonderful and personable wedding planner who is in tune with her client's vision & needs. Having her as our wedding planner was the best decision we could have ever made! She made the process as stress-free as possible. She is organized, reliable and extremely professional. She goes to bat for her clients when it comes to vendor negotiations and sees that everyone is on the same page when it comes to the wedding day. With her as your wedding planner, you'll have no need to worry about your special day. She is the easiest person to work with. As a side note, she is very knowledgeable about florals and different decor options and she'll make sure that your ceremony and reception site will look as polished and elegant as possible. You can't go wrong with her: trust me!

    I love Tope! She did an excellent job organizing the entire party. The night seemed flawless to myself and all the guests raved about how beautiful everything was. Tope helped me throughout the entire planning process with words of wisdom, some key recommendations, and suggestions on how to achieve what I was envisioning. She’s affordable and a necessary luxury for anyone who wants to get through an event planning process with their sanity intact.

    Tope did a fantastic job planning my wedding! Everyone was talking about how my event was beautifully coordinated and was asking me about her. She also did my decor and flowers and the hall looked breathtaking. She also has a wonderful personality and very easy to work with! I would definitely recommend Tope and Vintage Ivy Events for another bride that is getting married and i will be using her again for more occasions to come. Thanks Tope!

    I must say Tope has great attention to detail. Since I live in Georgia and my parents live in Richmond, I did not have the time to go back and forth to plan my wedding. I tried, but I felt so overwhelmed. After contacting a few friends in the VA area about finding a Nigerian wedding planner, they told me about Tope and I gave her a call. We spoke over the phone about the ideas and issues I have for my wedding. With her pleasant attitude, professionalism, patience, and wedding planning knowledge she fulfilled my expectations. She also did the decor design for my wedding. I had flower balls on vases, tall floral centerpieces, and submerged flowers in vases. She saved me money by connecting me with the right vendors in the Richmond area since I don't live there. She kept me aware of everything that was going on. She is simply awesome!

    I would like to thank Vintage Ivy Events for making my 30th birthday a memorable one. Thank you for stepping up to the plate and taking charge of every preparation but at the same time allowing me to provide some input. The beautiful and creative decor, your positive attitude, patience, attention to detail and professionalism really blew me away. Everything exceeded my expectations. I am forever grateful to you.

    I would like to appreciate the immense effort you put into my wedding. You worked tirelessly to coordinate all the details. You listened without complained when I was having stress-related meltdowns. Thank you for contacting the excellent vendors. You were awesome. My aunt Mary told me that you went out of your way to help her find her daughter’s jacket – I appreciate that. Tope, you were on top of everything. I wish you good luck with all your endeavors. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need any references.
