Our wedding day was FLAWLESS! Hiring Jessica and Ashley for full planning was the BEST decision that we made while planning our wedding! We started planning from out-of-state and could not imagine doing it without Parties a la Carte. Jessica was such a great communicator and made it such an easy process. Every vendor that she suggested turned out to be fantastic! Jessica and Ashley were so detail oriented and truly cared about making everything perfect for our day. Normally I get overwhelmed when making decisions, but Jessica and Ashley helped me every step of the way. They went out of their way to solve any issues and took care of everything. I always feel that I need to be in control of the situation, but with Jessica and Ashley being so detail oriented and organized I could relax and enjoy our wedding day. Even though I was sick the day of the wedding, I was completely stress-free, Ashley even brought me vitamins and medication to my hotel room. We did not have to worry about a single detail on the day of the wedding, they had EVERYTHING under control! During the reception they were constantly checking on us, bringing us drinks, and making sure we ate, etc. all while taking care of everything else. At the end of the night they made sure everything was packed into one of our parent’s car and even found time to clean our hotel room, decorate it with champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, and rose petals so that when we got back to our room it looked amazing! Jessica and Ashley really get to know you and truly care that you have the best day ever. They made the wedding planning experience fun, and it felt like I was planning with my two close friends the entire time. In fact, I’m really going to miss them! We’ll just have to find another event to plan with them soon! THANK YOU SO MUCH Parties a la Carte! View the full wedding.

I do not know where to begin with how extremely happy I was that we chose Parties a la Carte for my April 2017 wedding. About half way through planning the wedding and thinking we had most of the details taken care of, we decided to look for a day of wedding planner. After meeting with Jessica and her team and deciding to go with the partial wedding package, I cannot imagine what our wedding would have been with out her. Her expertise and connection with amazing vendors made for an absolutely beautiful wedding. And on top of that, they made the weeks up to the wedding and the day of so stress-free! Call, text, email at anytime and they would get back to you right away. Jessica was my savior on the day of and was there for me no matter what it was. I honestly can't imagine the day with out her. I recommend her to any bride out there that is on the fence about getting a wedding planner. Just do it! From the bottom of my heart, thank you Jessica and your team for making my wedding the one I always dreamed about. I will definitely be using you for future parties!

I LOVE Jessica and Rainee!!! They are absolutely the most amazing people to work with and both my husband and I are ecstatic we trusted them with our wedding. We were not the easiest clients to work with because of our busy schedules and we were all over the place in terms of the number of extra events and the chaos that caused. LUCKILY for us, Jessica completely organized everything, narrowed our choices and executed each one with flawless precision. She kept us on budget and even saved us some money in the process. Her PALC team got it done on the events leading up to the big day and stayed with us to ensure everything was going according to plan. Our guests are still talking about our whole wedding weekend and how wonderful it was. We can only thank PALC and Jessica for that. Her continued patience, sense of humor and no-nonsense approach to our continued craziness got us through to our wedding day without any headaches. I did not even worry once on my wedding day because I knew Jessica and Rainee were there in the background making sure everything ran smoothly with the vendors and the venue. That in itself is PRICELESS and worth what we paid her (although I don't think it was nearly enough!) I highly, HIGHLY recommend her and PALC for your special event planning needs.

There are not enough words to describe how amazing Jessica and her team at Parties a la' Carte are. From the very beginning Jessica and Rainee made me feel comfortable and confident in the planning process. They communicated with me about the necessities and took care of the little things behind the scenes without worrying me. I am usually someone who likes to be in control, but I completely trusted the PALC team to take over in the planning process. I have gotten nothing but amazing feedback on my wedding and it is all thanks to Jessica and her team. She planned the most gorgeous wedding weekend for my husband and I and we would hire her again in an instant. View the full wedding

Jessica Ralph and her team did such an amazing job from beginning to end.Jessica made me feel at ease throughout the planning process. I trusted her to get every detail taken care of and she did just that and more. I had worked in weddings and events in the Tampa Bay area, I knew choosing vendors would be difficult because there are so many great professionals. She gets things done and is always on it. My family and friends contacted me after the wedding to say how they did an incredible job. Her assistants Josie, Nicole and Rainee were there before you knew you needed something. They made not only me feel comfortable and at ease but my whole wedding party felt the same. I want to thank Rainee as she was the planner for my other two events. Rainee was a absolute pleasure to work with! Rainee planned my Bridal brunch as well as my Sunday brunch, both in the same weekend. The Bridal Brunch for at The Don CeSar, we started with a beach side luncheon and finished with a Spa day. All of my girls changed their minds on the spa services they wanted. She was able to make these changes with ease and a smile. The Sunday brunch was on the terrace at the Vinoy, it was breathtaking. I didn't have an head count for the Sunday brunch as everyone that was invited to the wedding was invited. We had the perfect amount of food. She was able plan for this! Everything was perfect! I needed her to come up with the food, decor and entertainment. I can be a control freak and I was able to just let go and trust her. I was so surprised how beautiful everything was for both events. Guests loved the food choices as well as the entertainment! I want to thank Nicole as well for helping with all of the events! Thank you Rainee for EVERYTHING that you did, I really loved working with you! I was so calm because of the Parties a La Carte team. Thank you so much ladies for all of your hard work! I highly recommend Parties a La Carte!

I hired Jessica and her team 6 months prior to my wedding to attend second round meetings with my signed vendors, assist in sourcing additional vendors, and oversee my rehearsal dinner as well as my wedding ceremony and reception. Not only did Jessica do an amazing job with the work contracted, but she went out of her way to source items, solve problems, and basically take care of anything that would stand in the way of our wedding being an amazing event.... In addition, a key point of differentiation between Jessica and other planners is that she personally, as well as multiple members of her staff, will be onsite at each event she plans. This means that nothing is left to chance, and any issues are immediately, seamlessly, and invisibly dealt with. I am arguably the most detail-oriented, high-maintenance person on the planet, and I have nothing but glowing praise for Jessica and Parties a la Carte. If you are considering hiring a planner, hire her immediately...you will be very happy you did.

I gave the team of ladies decor for my wedding along with several instructions (I'm always a little excessive, yes). I convinced myself that I thought of everything to orchestrate the wedding day, but Parties A La Carte caught and fixed many things that I didn't foresee happening. Before walking into the reception I glanced around - Besides everything looking on-point, I noticed that the easels were different (much prettier and sturdier looking than the ones I bought on Amazon) to display my table assignments board. Jessica, with Parties a La Carte, explained that they bought new easels because they were flimsy and weren't holding up. This purchase must have been made in a time-crunch, because I dropped my amazon easels off at Parties A La Carte the day before. I'm not sure the ladies had time to test these out until they brought them to the venue at 2pm. Therefore, sometime between 2pm and 5pm that day, they made magic happen. Great new easels along with everything else - and beat the beach traffic on the way!! My bridal suite was a mess when we left for the ceremony - the bridesmaids belongings were everywhere - I forgot to tell them to bring their things with them before I returned with hubby later. I didn't even remember until we arrived - and the suite was spotless! Parties A La Carte took care of it. They tracked the bridesmaids down and returned their things to them. Also, Parties A La Carte watched the weather and rushed out the night before the big day to buy my bridesmaids shawls (matching their dresses) just in case it was chilly at the outdoor ceremony. We didn't end up needing them, but it was sure comforting to know that Parties A La Carte looks out for everyone - not only the Bride!

Jessica and her staff are incredible! I was planning a birthday party for my husband (his first ever) and I wanted to make it special, fun and memorable. Jessica did the decor, the flower arrangements to go with our golf theme in an elegant way, designed a beautiful cake and dessert table and what can I say? She took care of everything! She is creative, resourceful, and detail oriented. For every question I had of what I wanted, she had a solution and implemented it beautifully! During the event, she and her staff are so attentive, my husband and I could truly enjoy our guests and the party. I won't be having another party without Parties A' La Carte!

Jessica and her team always seem to make the impossible possible and look professional and seamless doing it. Her company is responsible for our main fundraiser for our not for profit every October and I wouldn't trust anyone else with such an important event. She isn't just an event planner but a intricate part of our team with the same passion and drive for our mission of helping other cancer patients. We truly feel blessed to have her and team. -Susan Scherer Vice President of RNCG Angel Foundation
