From the beginning of the planning process, Whitney, Adriana, and the team took my wedding vision and created a wedding that far exceeded my expectations. Through months of planning, the team was responsive, creative, very helpful, and most importantly made me feel as though my wedding was the most important event they were planning. I will use A'Reve for all my future events, will use them for corporate events through my employer, and would recommend them to anyone looking for THE BEST planner ever! Thank you A'Reve!Jan 3, 2016 by Lindsay R on Blank Business NameResponse from the vendorI am a photographer with Jeff Hall Photography and have worked with Whitney and Adriana with A'Reve and I absolutely love working with them.

Working with you was great, and Lauren & Brians photos are breathtaking. Thank you for taking care of them and we look forward to working with you again.Oct 31, 2015 by Anonymous on Blank Business NameOur wedding was an incredible experience for my wife and I. We had so much anticipation and excitement leading up to our big day. Working with Whitney and Adriana from A'Reve made our spirits settled in a calm confidence that the day would be as wonderful as we dreamed it up to be. I here from friends and family that in past wedding experiences, the weeks leading up to the day were stressful and tense. My wife and I ae filled with overflowing gratitude for the feelings and emotions that came from Whitney and Adriana as they worked so diligently with everything we desired and what they envisioned. They really are artists and know with certainty how to bring the love and joy into a wedding experience. We enjoyed our experience working with A'Reve and would recommend them to anyone seeking the best planning and design in the bay area. Thank you Whitney and Adriana.Oct 31, 2015 by Katie M on Blank Business NameThis review is only based on the venue and day of event planning services. Unfortnately my husband and I could not afford Whitney's event planning services, but I'm sure if we used her she would have done an amazing job! We fell in love with the property the moment we saw it. This was the perfect do it yourself venue which left a lot of room for imagination. We were able to rent the house for the entire weekend and have the rehearsal dinner and day after breakfast on the property. This was perfect because with my big fat Greek family everyone is invited to everything! This was my first time (and last) planning a wedding and trying to stay with in a budget. Whitney was very helpful answering questions and coming up with ideas to make our vision fit on her property. She graciously met with my family on multiple occasions to go over pricing details before we actually committed to the venue. My biggest concern was what would happen if it rains and of course all of my worry brought a heat wave and made for a perfect evening. Even though our wedding turned out exactly how I wanted it to, it was a lot of work! I would definitely recommend paying for Whitney's services if you can afford it.Oct 26, 2015 by Anonymous on Blank Business NameI have had the opportunity to be at a few events that A’Reve planning was contracted for and I am so impressed with Whitney and her company. I pay attention to detail and the “flow" of the event. The company is so detail oriented in fun, unique ways that were noticeable and that added flare. It is obvious they take time to plan, prepare and commit to excellence. Guests were commenting and enjoying the details,ambiance and energy of the evening. It is clear they have a remarkable team as every last detail was taken care of, including all the behind the scene stuff that really makes a difference. On both occasions, the evening was obviously planned to attune to a lovely ryythm where it all flowed so nicely. It wasn’t choppy or there wasn’t long pauses of waiting for what is next. The guests had mentioned several times how wonderful the evening was and how memorable it was. This really stood out to me. This company knows what they are doing and they do it with such passion and commitment. I am ‘wowed’!Oct 26, 2015 by The happiest bride! on Blank Business NameAbsolutely the best experience ever!!! I found myself having the most stressful time and then a friend referred me to Whitney at A'Reve and my life instantly was better in planning my wedding. If you think you can handle it yourself... you may be fooling yourself! I know I was! Whitney is the best! I felt like she was a family member assisting me. She is so professional and knows her stuff and she is also so sweet and helpful. I am so grateful of the amazing day she helped me plan! My family and friends and of course, my husband and I, were so amazed! Thank you for all you had created for us!!Oct 20, 2015 by ammon r on Blank Business NameSarah's wedding in Emeryville- Aug, 30, 2015, an occasion which our company provided videography services to the couple. The main take away from working with Adrianna was- She truly loves what she does. Our experience with Adriana began 2 months before the event when she initiated phone and email correspondence, communicating updates, addressing questions we had. On the day of, she was warm from the beginning and would prove to be quite the worker bee. Actively engaged with guests, bridal party, and vendors at every stage of the event, Adriana's leadership put everyone at ease, especially Pat and Sarah (whom I can ensure you had a magical time!).Oct 20, 2015 by William Q on Blank Business NameI am a professional wedding photographer serving the Bay area as well as the Sacramento markets. I had the pleasure of working with A'Reve Event Planning & Design on a wedding at the Berkeley Botanical Gardens just recently. It seems a lot of my weddings are more venue oriented event planners for just the time of the reception. When I heard my couple hired A'Reve Event Planning & Design, I was excited to know a professional was going to keep things on time and organized.throughout the whole day. I was delighted when the wedding was executed exactly the way it was intended and no glitches had to be worked around. A'Reve Event Planning & Design was on top of everything and the bonus was they were a delight to work with. They smiled they kept the tone light and they were organized. Kudos to A'Reve Event Planning & Design.Oct 20, 2015 by Anonymous on Blank Business NameI did a wedding with you as the officiant (Hilow/Behne just last Saturday). Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed working with you and to thank you for being so kind to me after the wedding. I really enjoyed the glass of wine and the plate of appetizers. Hope to work with you again in the near future. Rev. Ray CarterOct 20, 2015 by Anonymous on Blank Business NameAdriana and Whitney were fantastic to work with. They were super easy to get in touch with when I had last-minute questions about Janal and Eric's wedding in Brentwood. Everything went smoothly on the day of the wedding, and they were accommodating and flexible with the timing of events that made my job as the couple's photographer easier. The wedding was beautifully executed and I would recommend them to any bride looking for reliable, professional and fun planners to trust their special day with.Oct 15, 2015 by Miranda M on Blank Business NameMy husband and I got married at Whitney's estate in August of last year. Our wedding turned out SO beautiful, the venue looked picture perfect and the wedding photos turned out amazing. On top of that Whitney and Adriana were SO great. Whitney really made sure that everything was running smoothly at all times and even helped iron out a few hiccups that inevitably occurred on the way. They really went the extra mile to make sure our day turned out picture perfect. Thank you so much ladies for all you have done, our wedding turned out better than I could have ever imagined! I would recommend them to anyone looking for a beautiful outdoor venue to have their wedding at.Oct 14, 2015 by Jennifer G on Blank Business NameWhitney and her team did a amazing job last September for my wedding. It was elegant and everything I wanted and dreamed about!! She was so gracious helping me and ensuring my dream came to life. She also kept me calm and took a lot of the pressure off me. I am so grateful I met her and she was able to be apart of my wonderful, magical day! You are crazy if you do not allow this talented, kind hearted, truly elegant person help you with what is one of the most special and important day of your life!Oct 14, 2015 by Whitney V on Blank Business NameI could not have asked for a better team than the A'Reve Event team! They were with me from start to finish and handled every detail which completely relieved me of any stress. Anyone looking for a Wedding Planner, look no further.Oct 14, 2015 by Anonymous on Blank Business NameWhitney and Adriana did an outstanding job on our wedding in August. We had somewhat of a challenging situation because the first wedding planner we worked with was unable to keep the project moving professionally or close loops with vendors and contacts properly. Midway through the project, we finally cut the other person loose. Whitney and Adriana to the rescue. They assessed the situation and helped us assemble the pieces we didn't already have in place, like the officiant, flowers, limo, makeup, etc. The vendors they recommended were excellent and very competitively priced. I was especially happy with the flowers. That was an aspect of the wedding that I didn't care as much about--I knew I wanted the necessary bouquets and arrangements, etc., but I didn't want anything extravagant, and I didn't want to spend a lot of money and time on it. W and A showed my pinterest board to their recommended florist, who came up with a beautiful, economic package that hit all of my requirements, including a flower wand for the flower girl. I met with the florist exactly once, and was thrilled with the concept arrangement he had put together. On the day of, we had exactly the bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres, and arrangements we needed, that worked beautifully with the other elements, at a price I was extremely happy with. Score! Likewise, their day-of coordination was excellent. I know there were snafus (there always are, esp. with a tight timeline like ours) but they made everything happen as it should, even when that required some improvisation. I especially remember being worried about our first dance because my tulle skirt kept catching my heels. Adriana whipped out a needle and thread and in 5 minutes, she and my bridesmaids had repaired the dress and we had a beautiful first dance. These guys are rockstars!Oct 12, 2015 by Nancy H on Blank Business NameI've had the pleasure of working with Whitney and Adriana on many events over the past year and I can't express how much I love these gals! They are completely on top of every last detail, communicating with me on any and all updates as well as having an extremely good eye for decor and keeping up with all the new trends. They make the impossible possible, whether it be staying up all night to make sure the every last facet is in place or finding that rare feature you were hoping to display at your event. Planning an event, especially I wedding can be immensely stressful without these two by your side! There is only good things to say about these ladies and I would recommend them to anyone I know.Sep 30, 2015 by Anonymous on Blank Business NameWhitney and her team did a great job helping my wife and I plan and execute our wedding. Being the groom, I felt Whitney asked my opinion when really needed, but handled all the little details with my wife, knowing that wasn't my forte. I really appreciated that because I felt involved, but not pressured to look at 50 different centerpiece options. She was well organized and I'd highly recommend her for any upcoming events.Sep 28, 2015 by Anonymous on Blank Business NameWe recently hired A'reve Event Planning for a 3 day corporate event. A'reve was courtesy, caring, and professional in all aspects of the planning and organizing process. The event ran smooth and the venue looked beautiful. We would definitely recommend their services to any company. Thank you! The RPG TeamSep 28, 2015 by Anonymous on Blank Business NameWe had our 3 day Wedding at the Tassajara estate 7/17 this year. Our guest were blown away about how beautiful the venue was, we are still being complemented by it. Such a magical place that would make any type of event breathtaking. Whitney and her team are beautiful people that made having our reception a breeze. Always pleasant to deal with! They are very accomodating , they catered to our needs and very helpful to ensure your events was memorable. I would highly recommend Whitney and her team to anyone and hope to have future events at their beautiful estate.Sep 28, 2015 by Janal H on Blank Business NameWe are still getting compliments on our August 29th, 2015 wedding! We hired Whitney and Adriana last year to help us with our special day. It was at a private residence so we were in need of quite a bit of assistance and we are so happy with all of the help, recommendations, and day of coordination! As we know weddings can be extremely stressful, but they made the planning process and the day of so easy for us. Whitney and Adriana helped us find almost all of the vendors and we couldn’t have received more compliments. We loved the DJ, officiant service, rentals, florist, and caterer! Everybody they sourced was amazing. They brought everything together on the day of and it was more than we could have imagined!Thank you Janal and Eric for the great reviews! It was such a pleasure amd honor to be able to plan your wedding. You are incredible people and we wish you a lifetime of happiness and love.Sep 26, 2015 by Anonymous on Blank Business NameWhitney and Adriana helped me to plan my husband's surprise 50th birthday party. They both are easy to talk to,and actually read my mind! They knew exactly what I wanted,and the event was so much better than I imagined! People are still talking about the amazing job they both did. The day of the event, I enjoyed every minute of it. They took care of every detail, I didn't have to worry about a thing. I cannot even think of anything that I would change about the party. It couldn't have been any better. Whitney and Adriana are simply the best!Sep 26, 2015 by Anonymous on Blank Business NameWeddings are absolutely the most stressful thing. I really wanted to enjoy the day, so at the suggestion of a friend we hired Whitney and Adriana. It was by far the best decision we could have made. The day was beyond my wildest dreams! The ladies took care of every single detail, and a few I didn't even think of. I also really appreciated that they thought outside of the box. If I came to them with an idea, they had a few more that were even better!! Thank you Whitney and Adriana for making my wedding a beautiful and stress free day!Sep 26, 2015 by Jane doe on Blank Business NameGreat job on the symposium, Whitney. Very organized. Very classy.Sep 26, 2015 by Teresa V on Blank Business NameWe are still coming down from the wedding bliss we all have from my daughter's wedding. Friday September 11th, 2015!! What a dream come true. I have 4 children. Only one wanted to have a fairy tale-dream like wedding. Well Whitney and Adriana (the A'Reve Events "dream team") made it happen big time! I am still getting compliments about the wedding. I have been told many many times now, "that it was the best wedding, they have ever been to". Thank you. We will love you both always.Sep 23, 2015 by Anonymous on Blank Business NameWhitney was beyond amazing when she helped me plan & execute my wedding. From planning until the day of the wedding, everything was perfect. She has a great eye for detail and made sure everything went off without a hitch. The venue was immaculate and she made sure the flowers would be in bloom and everything! If you're looking for an amazing professional, look no further.Mar 14, 2015 by Anonymous on Blank Business NameA'Reve Event Planning absolutely made my wedding dreams come true.

Thank you A'Reve!Feb 10, 2015 by Jessica S on Blank Business NameI got married at Tassajara (Whitney's venue) on May 11th of this year. First, the venue is beautiful! Whitney made sure the grounds were perfectly kept, and went above and beyond to make sure I had roses at the ceremony site. As a DIYer, Whitney was the BEST to bounce ideas off of, letting me know right away what would work at Tassajara, and what wouldn't. She worked with us to give us exactly what we wanted, a great eye for design and detail. Throughout the day, Whitney made sure everything ran smoothly and on time. During cocktail hour, the bar had to be moved. Sounds stressful, but Whitney handled it with ease, and let me take photos without stressing me out. MAJOR PLUS! I don't plan on getting married again, but if I did I would use Whitney in a heart beat.Jan 29, 2015 by Anonymous on Blank Business NameWe got married at Tassajara Estate, a venue that A'Reve coordinates. The venue is beautiful! The perfect space to have any style of wedding. Ours was rustic, winery, elegance and it came together perfectly! We appreciate Whitney and Adriana's day of coordination. The rentals and linens were just what we asked for and envisioned for the space. All of our family and friends loved the venue, the food, and had a wonderful time at our wedding!Jan 11, 2015 by Anonymous on Blank Business NameAdriana and her team were incredible to work with. As a wedding videographer (Matter Video), I get the chance work with a lot of planners and coordinators, but A'Reve is at the top of the class. The wedding I worked with them (at a private airport) was extremely unique and required a lot of coordination. Their team handled every detail and helped arrange one of the more magical weddings I have ever been a part of. We love them! Highly recommended.
