I had the honor of planning the wedding of Altreisha & Oladi for 16 months. She lived in Washington DC at the time and I could not be more impressed with her impeccable timing and quick responses. She always responded within 5 minutes of my email or text. She was a dream for planners to work with! Right off the bat, she knew what she wanted for her wedding and she stuck by it. She also had an eye for style and thought every single detail throughout the wedding to make sure things are working well together. She wanted the wedding theme to be called Fuchsia Fantasy. And what a fantasy it truly was! The color fuchsia was chosen not only for its bold and attractive nature but also to represent Altreisha’s mom 10-year surviving breast cancer. Altreisha and I thought every single detail and it was executed to the Nth degree. From the linens, the chargers (black diamond – oh, so fancy!), the centerpieces (created by Luna Vinca – they rocked!), favors (both kids and adults), meal assignment cards (which I handmade all those 180 cards), 6 sets of fuchsia sandals that Altreisha gave as a gift to each bridesmaid – which I thought the bridesmaids were very grateful of, the basket of essentials in the bathroom (oh yeah, we thought of those too), the seating arrangement board and the custom-made table names based on the names of countries in Africa and The Caribbean (custom-made by Pen and Ink), the signature drink which was specially requested and delivered as “Fuchsia Fantasy Drink” and last but not least to the very ribbons used to decorate the cake knife and serving set. The Altreisha & Oladi’s wedding was Bee The Buzz Event’s 2011 Wedding of The Year!
We are an ambitious couple from Washington DC, ambitious enough to decide to plan our June 11 wedding in the Mid-west, Minneapolis to be more specific. What were we thinking? We often wondered, but those turned out to be our absolutely best thoughts ever. We scoured internet sites wedding planners, interviewed a few and then we stumbled upon our amazing wedding planner: Bea of Bee The Buzz Event. Bea is the head planner for this company and she does an awesome job coordinating events. They are organized and very affordable. We felt comfortable trusting her team with planning the biggest event of our life, our wedding day. She is supported by an awesome cast of vendors who appreciates her work ethics and holds her in high regards, this was evident in the quality time and product they presented to us. They made our day titled “Fuchsia Fantasy” a major success. Bea, our guests thoroughly enjoyed your creative insight, your calming persona and the importance you placed on making our day as seamless and as successful as we planned it. We appreciate your attention to detail, your timely responses to our emails and there were many, regardless of the time of day it was. You were a budget guru and a true advocate for us and we respected that about you. Our Fantasy was fulfilled and thanks to you, we had a really blessed and fulfilled day. Could our wedding day have been better? Absolutely not, it was perfect :). Thank You Bee The Buzz Event.
