Hiring Ruby and Pearl Events as our wedding planners was the single best decision we made regarding our wedding. The process and the day of the wedding were as stress free as we could have hoped for and every single detail was thought out and meticulously planned down to the minute. Their professionalism, dedication, and passion were beyond anything either my husband or I have ever experienced. We walked away from this process with such an overwhelmingly positive experience and would trust them to plan any event in the future for us and have utmost confidence in their ability to make other clients dreams come true like they did for us.

I absolutely loved my experience with Ruby and Pearl Events. I consider myself a pretty difficult client because I have such a hard time focusing and making decisions, so if you're looking for wedding planners to take your dream and provide options on how to actually achieve it- these are your people! The day of the wedding was flawless... the team was perfect with the flow of the evening and even sensitive to the little things. All in all, working with Ruby & Pearl put me at ease and I truly couldn't imagine the process without them!

Just wanted to send a quick note to tell you how happy we were with Ruby and Pearl Events.

Valerie was always quick to respond to anything we posted, and she always exuded a confidence that left us no doubt that the wedding day would turn out as smoothly as it did. Please know how much we appreciate all of your efforts to make Meryl & Trey’s wedding the great day that it was.
