Full Service Event Planning

Deborah was amazing!!! She helped me find the venue, the florist (who was amazing and did incredible work!!) and helped with small details of the wedding. She helped design and decorate the cake. She was so hands on. Deborah had a creative vision and knew how to implement it!!She was never pushy, just only shared her opinions and ideas. On the day of the Wedding Deborah averted a major disaster. The hairstylist I carefully selected cancelled on me and my bridesmaids 2 hours before the wedding I called Deborah and without blinking she asked “What city are you in? Deborah found an amazing hairstylist who was located a few blocks from me and within minutes I was sitting in her chair. She single-handedly saved my wedding from a catastrophe. My wedding was beautiful, and I could not have done it with her! Thank you so much Deborah!

Deborah is so very patient and listens to what you want which was key for me. She has amazing vendors that she works with, she also goes above and beyond, there were times she did more than she was contracted to do, and I will forever be grateful for that. The first time we met we just clicked, and I think that is tremendously important especially if the Planner will be with you on the journey leading up to your wedding.

Deborah and her I Said Yes staff were truly a blessing sent from God! My husband and I wanted to highlight our Christian faith, incorporate elements of his fraternity and my sorority, and our commitment to being one. As a very eager bride, I had many ideas and a vision for what I wanted but once I met with Deborah and her team, they were able to take the vision and run with it. They made our wedding day more beautiful than either of us could have imagined and each element was showcased in a unique and breathtaking way. It made our wedding have meaning and honestly made it personal to US! Our guest were impressed with the venue and how so much care was given to each and every detail: Simply put the elegance and class of each phase of the wedding was impressive. This largely was due to the patience and creative genius of Deborah, who provided support and viable feedback, never pushy just words of experience and expertise. The use of the vendors from the preferred vendor list proved to be a wise chose as they ere easy to work with, were familiar with each other’s work and had an established relationship and high measure of respect for the I Said Yes team. This was a mighty combination and helped to make our special day memorable and one that left lasting imprints on the hearts and minds of all that attended.

Deborah’s crisis management skills!!! Two days before the wedding, the makeup artist that I hired quit! The night before the hairstylist that I hired was unable to travel to my hotel to style my hair! One phone call it took to Deborah and she had a team of make up artist and a hair stylist set and ready to go the day of the wedding. No one would have known because it all turned out beautifully! Thank you for walking us through this process of wedding planning step by step with love and patience; you were there and because of you that you were instrumental in making our Dream Wedding Come True!

Our guest could not stop talking about the wonderful time they had from beginning to end. The flow of the wedding was impeccable. Everything started on time which was especially important to us. The venue was just exquisite. I Said Yes made my vision come to life. From our initial meeting we were so impressed with the organization of the I Said Yes Staff and they truly made the experience all about us! They did not miss a beat in making sure everything flowed on time and effortlessly. We enjoyed every moment of the wedding planning process and our wedding day was a magical experience.

I could not have dreamed of a better wedding. From our very first meeting Deborah and the I Said Yes Staff took an interest in the vision of our wedding, and they stayed committed and invested throughout the entire planning process, even when our vision changed from a small garden wedding to an elaborate luxury affair.


I said yes was absolutely Amazing!!! They assisted me in locating my venue, choosing my theme and color palate and found me the most outstanding vendors! Deborah and her staff were extremely professional and accommodating to every detail of my 50th Bday… Thank you Deborah for an over the top extraordinary Chanel themed Event!!! It was Fabulous!!!
