When planning my wedding from England Debbie was absolutely fantastic. No detail was too small to be overlooked and she was with me every step of the way; from finding my dream venue, to hand tying name cards onto candles the day before the wedding. Every vendor she recommended gave a five star service and the creativity and care she put into the planning meant the end result far surpassed my expectations. Throughout the process her calm approach and excellent negotiating skills were invaluable and took the major stresses out of planning a simcha. Debbie, you were wonderful and, I can’t thank you enough for helping to create such a treasured day!

Debbie created the most beautiful simcha for our family. It was beyond anything I could have dreamed up on my own. She was professional, meticulously organized, transparent, thought of every detail and such a pleasure to work with. All the vendors that she recommended delivered what they promised, were professional, competent and a pleasure to work with as well. Planning a simcha from the states, with a 10 hour time difference in a country I had not visited in 10 years, with a woman I had never met, took allot of trust. I arrived at my own simcha never even having set foot into the venue I’d chosen. But her vision, care, negotiation skills, pleasant & calm demeanor really made it so easy to actually enjoy my simcha without being concerned about the logistics. It was phenomenal, beautiful, meaningful and beyond anything I could have even hoped for. By the end of the Shabat weekend our whole family was so thankful for what Debbie created for us.

Our amazing Debbie – Working full time and being in London Town, it would have been impossible to organise a wedding in Israel without the help of Debbie. She was on hand whenever I wanted to run something by her, negotiate contracts with suppliers and ensure that the event itself ran smoothly. We are so grateful to her and her amazing assistants who ensured that I could literally turn up and get married without a worry in the world. We absolutely adored Debbie, both professionally and personally and hope that we will host another function in Israel just to have the opportunity to work together again.

We were so excited when our eldest daughter got engaged, but as relatively new olim, the idea of planning and organising a wedding in Israel was so daunting! We really didn’t even know where to start. But, we discovered that the best place to begin was by hiring Debbie. She guided us through the process, always listening to what we wanted, but using her knowledge and expertise to make sure that the experience was a beautiful and stress free one for us. She helped through all the planning, making sure that everything was done when it needed to be, and that each detail was perfectly in place. But, most importantly, she handled the day of the wedding itself. Everything was handed over to her, so that she could take care of it. We knew that we didn’t have to worry about anything at the wedding, and we could all enjoy every moment of our wonderful simcha! Thanks, Debbie, we loved it!

We are not the kind of people who would normally hire an event planner, but as soon as we hired Debbie we knew we had made the right decision. When it came to our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah, we “kind of” knew what we were going to do and it all seemed perfect and easy. But some more thought and planning later… Not so! We have a home to run, and kids, and jobs and commitments..Once we sat down for a meeting with Debbie it was all clearer. Finally we galvanized an idea of the event we wanted, what expense we were looking at, and we had an experienced hand that made sure all was delivered expertly, pleasantly, on time and on budget!

Here are the things people don’t discuss openly, but it has to be said: everyone wants the best, but they don’t want to spend more than necessary. Debbie was very wise to advise us on what to focus on. Using her knowledge and savviness in a market that is so apt for exploitation, every saving was passed on to us the clients, which is a rare phenomenon.. Off she went and pushed for the best for us, and by the time all the major bookings were made, months ago, the fee she charged had nearly returned itself!! And all that before the home stretch of the last few weeks and the day itself.

We walked into our simcha relaxed, happy, and the only care we had was to not mess up the performance or speeches. Everything ran smoothly and on time and we could see and feel people genuinely enjoying themselves- as so many of them commented on the night and later. Not to mention how much we enjoyed ourselves, as well as our wider family. We are still floating on a cloud somewhere, mostly thanks to Debbie! We look forward to making many more smachot with Debbie’s expert hand.

Debbie was of invaluable assistance to us in planning our son’s Bar Mitzvah. She helped us every step of the way, saving us lots of time and effort and making us feel confident in the choices that we made. She listened to our needs, giving us lots of advice and creative ideas, but always made sure that what we chose reflected our taste and needs. We were amazed by how little stress we felt in the final weeks and on the day itself. We felt confident that Debbie had it all under control. We would highly recommend her.

Debbie worked so hard for us over the past year in order to make us our perfect wedding! She went the extra mile with every detail and was patient and organised during the whole process.  We honestly would not have been able to do it without her. She not only organised the best night of our lives, but made our engagement period so enjoyable. We will never forget that!
