Mitch + Meghan

If I hadn’t had Liz and her teams help and support through this wedding process I don’t know what my husband and I would have done! She was so detailed and organized, asked what felt like silly questions but ended up being a huge part of the “day of ” planning! She is a timely and extremely calm throughout all of the bumps in our planning process! We not only got compliments on our flowers, food but also on Soleil Bliss Event Productions and their professionalism! There are only a few things vendor-wise I repeat from our wedding this Summer 2015 and Liz and her team are at the top of the list! If you’re not sure about a planner or don’t want to budget one in…. DO IT with them! Thanks Liz for everything your truly gifted at what you do! We love you Mitch and Meghan!!

Allison + Nick

Liz was such a blessing for my wedding – she was incredibly helpful before in making a timeline that allowed plenty of time for everything that we wanted and answering any and all of my questions. On the day of the wedding, I did not have to worry about a thing, Liz had everything handled! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great coordinator!

David + Kathryn

Condon Wedding1If you are looking for a fabulous wedding planner who is fun, kind, creative, knowledgeable, and will go above and beyond for your wedding, Liz is your girl. I only hired her for the “month of” coordination services, but she did so much more! I planned my wedding in Portland from Fort Collins, Colorado and I hired Liz about a year out from my wedding. From the first time we spoke until the day of my wedding, she continuously made me feel comfortable with everything by calling me to talk things through, or e-mailing me. If I hadn’t spoke to her in a while, she would even send check up e-mails to make sure everything was still going OK. Liz immediately tries to understand your vision, mine was on my Pinterest boards, and she executes it perfectly. She makes a point to ensure everything for your event is in line with what you previously discussed. I honestly couldn’t believe how much she matched my actual wedding to my original vision, she literally made my dream wedding come true.

Liz is an absolute professional. She goes through each and every single contract for you and will have them amended if she feels that they don’t meet her criteria. She contacts all of your vendors in advance of your event to ensure they are going to perform their duties in accordance with the contracts, and she manages your vendors throughout your event. Every single one of my vendors from my makeup artist to my videographer commented on how professional and together Liz was. She formulated timelines for everyone and made sure everyone complied with them.

In my opinion, Liz is the best priced wedding planner I found for what wonderful services she offers. She seems to know everyone in the industry, she knows everything that goes into events, she is a complete professional, and makes it all seem easy. My wedding went off without a hitch and I actually got to enjoy my day without stress, and I owe it all to Liz at Soleil Bliss for helping me make my dream wedding come true.

James + Christina

Thank you so much for everything! You have been absolutely incredible throughout this whole process. I don’t know what I would have done without you. The countless txt’s, emails, and phone calls, you have always been so accessible. Let’s not forget the beautiful save the dates and invitations you created for us. You saved us sooo much money! I truly don’t know how you do it! The ultimate multitask-er! But thank you doesn’t event begin to say how grateful we are that you made this best day of our lives a reality. Much love to you and continues success with your business. You’re the best!

Jenny - Mother of the Bride

Liz gave me my day! We had limited funds and she was definitely a very smart decision and was worth her weight in gold. She gave us invaluable assistance and vendor resources before the wedding. Her resource and check list book was immensely helpful. On the day of the wedding I was able to completely let go of the details and just enjoy the day as the mother-of-the-bride, having complete confidence that she had everything under control (even things I would never have thought of). Thank you Liz, for giving me the opportunity to enjoy this special without any concerns! The day would not have been the same without you!

Josh + Tracy

I had a budget, and wanted to stick to it. I am also very much a control freak, and thought I could do it all. We didn’t have a huge wedding, but decided to at least call Soleil Bliss, and see if they did just day of coordination. I wanted someone to help keep the party going. I realized that I didn’t want to burden my family, and I didn’t want to run around watching the clock to make sure things kept moving. I knew as soon as I met Liz, I had made one of the smartest choices for the biggest day of my life. Our family is loud and little crazy, so I wanted someone strong enough to voice what needed to be done (which is usually my job). I left our on site tour so excited. I knew I could hand the reins over and have trust that it was all going to be done. Liz went above and beyond. It truly felt like I had a best friend that was there for me 150%. I am still hearing from friends and family about how amazing Liz was, and how on top of it she was.

I never thought myself as the type that needed to hire a coordinator. I am so glad I did. I didn’t want to burden my friends and family with doing it. There is so much going on, and it was so great to be able to visit with all my guests, and not have to watch the clock, and make sure I was doing things when I needed to. Liz would give me a heads up of what was going on, and I never felt rushed, or felt like I was being pulled in every direction. I was able to fully enjoy this day that so much went into.

I fully recommend hiring a coordinator. Even if its just the day of. I was honestly sad at the end of the night to see Liz leave. She truly felt like part of the family. I cant wait for another event to have her involved in. Please brides, do yourselves a favor, call Soleil Bliss to coordinate your wedding. Liz made it possible for me to enjoy my day, stress free and I cant thank her enough.

Bryan + Rachael

Liz was fantastic! She covered all the bases and was soo much help for a DIY bride, like me. She was able to bring my vision to life. It’s hard to trust your special day in the hand of someone else, but Liz was there for me and it was amazing!

 

Allan + Jill

Liz was very helpful and made our special day much easier. We moved to Boston a year ago, but decided to hold our wedding in Portland because it was our home for the last 7 years. We talked to Liz regularly over email and phone. Liz was on top of things and in fact, scheduled meetings with us instead of the other way around.

In addition, Liz has an extensive contact list for other vendors like florist, makeup artist, and bakers. We loved the florist and makeup artist she recommended. All of our guest love the Macaroon the baker made for us. It was difficult to book these people sight unseen, but Liz assure us that they were great and she has worked with them.

On our wedding day, Liz made everything smoothly. She even helped the groom and his groomsmen put on the flowers on their jackets. Liz stayed behind and helped with the cleanup. After a long day, it was nice to just go back and relax and not worry about cleanup. We definitely recommend Soelil Bliss and we will use their service for other event planning in a heart beat.

Ahmed + Jordan

Liz was absolutely amazing! Our wedding won’t have been as fantastic as it was without all of Liz’s help and amazing ideas. She is truly the best!-Jordan

Liz was so awesome. not only on the days leading up to our wedding. But soo so much on the day of the wedding. I had no stress what so ever and I know with out her my stress level would have been through the roof. She also made my wife and mine’s vision of what we wanted our wedding to be, a reality and made it look and flow great. I loved every minute of it. It could have not happened without her.-Ahmed

Andy + Robin

Liz was amazing. She is such a hard worker and extremely detail oriented. She was always super quick to respond to every little question and concern I had. We had plenty of issues with our venue, but she always had a way to either fix the problem or work around it. I would not have survived this whole wedding process with out her. Her moral support and positive attitude alone was worth a million bucks! Liz was also fun to work with. You can tell that event planning is her passion. She not only understood my vision, but made it a reality. I would recommend Liz to anyone planning an event in the Vancouver /Portland area.

Ken + Therese

Liz was absolutely AMAZING!!! My husband was actually skeptical about getting a wedding coordinator for our wedding but he thanked me for finding Liz after the wedding because she went above and beyond the job description. She was supposed to be for the day of but she helped me with hours of planning even months before the day. From the decorations on the table, the candy buffet, coordinating with all of my vendors making sure they were doing what we hired them to do…Liz did it all!! She also saved my entire wedding reception…the power shut off at our reception site and hour before we were supposed to arrive and she called around and had her husband get a generator so we would have power…and making sure I did not find out about it! Liz made my special day so stress free I did not have anything to worry about knowing it was all in her hands!

Ben + Cori

Liz and Amanda are great! I am so glad that I decided to get a day-of coordinator.

Liz was always helpful and explained the process clearly. Their contract was very clear and put my mind at ease. Anytime I had questions, she quickly answered them. Beyond day of coordination, she contacted all my vendors to confirm timing and delivery. Excellent addition, especially when its the last thing you want to do the week before your wedding. I can’t even begin to tell you how busy I was that week (family in town, rehearsal dinner, etc). Liz also has a wealth of knowledge she has gained from past experiences which has molded into a list of do’s and do not’s.

Amanda did the actual coordination on my wedding day. She was excellent! Great communication and followed the set up directions I had put together just perfectly. When I arrived at the venue, the setup was just as I had imagined and probably even better. I had also contracted with Miss Formal, who supplies tableware, flatware, glassware and the two vendors worked wonderfully together. They often work together, so it was very fluid and well done. Amanda helped arrange our “first look”, which was super special. Also, she helped my large wedding party get down the aisle and spaced it with the live music wonderfully.

The only complaint I have is the billing. 50% is due when signing the contract, which is a lot to me when you are booking far in advance. The second half is then due a month before the wedding. It makes me nervous to do this since no services were rendered at that time and a vendor could easily not show and take the money. It worked out, but I would have liked to see final payment due the day of. There’s other vendors to pay anyway on day of. No big issue, just minor.

Overall, I recommend everyone to use Soleil Bliss for their event coordination. Well worth the cost!cori
