If 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.

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!

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!

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.

Liz was INCREDIBLE! We hired her for day-of coordination, but she made sure she had all her (our) ducks in a row well in advance, which made it an even more fantastic wedding day! Liz was beyond professional, knowledgeable and resourceful- she was willing to find out EXACTLY what we wanted and do everything in her power to make sure our vision was played out. We hardly talked to her on the day of- she only had to ask me but one or two questions- which means the rest of the time she was busy conducting all the details of our day without direction. I was able to enjoy every moment of my wedding and THAT is exactly what I hoped for.
Liz is efficient and thoughtful- she wrassled up some extra decorations and made a special vase for my bouquet at the dinner table(I didn’t even notice until after the wedding). My fathers’ boutonniere was missing, seconds before we were to walk down the aisle. Liz plucked a couple of flowers from my bouquet and wrapped them up with some twine and a pin. My fiance was so impressed with her skills, in that moment and in many other moments during the day that I’m sure we didn’t even know about. Liz has something real special going on with her Soleil Bliss- I would recommend her in a heartbeat!

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.

Soleil Bliss Event Productions helped out so much for my wedding. Liz made everything so much easier for us on the day of and helped us think of things we would never have thought we needed for our wedding day. She made our ceremony and reception look beautiful and we had a carefree wedding day. I would definitely recommend them for anyone who wants that extra help for their wedding we tried to do everything on our own and were so thankful when Liz came along to help us out.

Liz was amazing as were her team my day was beautiful and perfect without her team along with all my other vendors I don’t think it would have been as perfect I can’t thank her enough and when I have friends or family getting married I will highly recommend everyone who made my day so special!!

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!

My wife should be writing this review, but I want to take a moment to tell you what a great job Liz and Soleil Bliss Event Productions did for us! We had been planning our wedding for about 13 months and from the very beginning my wife knew she wanted a planner. Liz drove from Vancouver, WA to Seattle to meet with us as purely a consultation. Our first impression of Liz was here is a woman who knows how a wedding should be done. Within five minutes we knew we had found our planner. As my wife’s vision of the wedding changed over the 13 months Liz was there every step of the way to help with any problems or offer solutions on how to make her plans become reality. The amount of stress that Liz took off my wife’s shoulders as our special day drew near was astounding. On the day of our wedding Liz was able to fix a major dress malfunction, whip out two corsages for my wife’s mother and my mother, coordinate a less than accommodating venue staff in reference to their idea of decorating, and all this was done after she had stayed up until close to 2 AM to decorate our ceremony and reception areas. Liz took a great event, location, setting, and environment and transformed it into something completely phenomenal. Our expectations were so far exceeded that we could not believe what she had created was our wedding.
Thank you so very much Liz. I can’t urge anybody reading this enough to talk with Liz and let her plan and coordinate your wedding. You will not regret a single moment nor worry in the slightest that your event will be anything less than extraordinary.
