Absolutely Amazing

Debbie was amazing. She was organized, reliable, and on top of everything from day one. While we only hired her for the day of planner role, she helped throughout the entire process with to-do lists that helped us stay on task. She was very responsive to my emails, even when I'd email late at night. She also helped us deal with a few issues with vendors that we didn't want to worry about and did so quickly and efficiently. Like before I could even follow up with her quick. And on the day of, she helped us transform our plans into an amazing wedding where everything went to plan. Even when we fell off schedule a little bit she managed to keep us on track and moving. If we could go back we would have definitely hired her for the full time service. It would have been worth it for us as we're not the most into planning, and even if you are into planning, she was still very valuable for the day of. Like I said, she helped our day look incredible and we honestly didn't have to worry about a thing.

Day-of Coordinator

Debbie was one of the first vendors we booked when planning our wedding day of 07/29/17. We researched and spoke with a few day-of coordinators, but she truly outshone the others. We booked Debbie for a day-of coordinator, but she helped me from the time I booked her (a year in advance) until our wedding day. I looked to Debbie for advice on vendors, contracts, timelines, and everything else in-between! She was amazing! She set up our venue exactly how we imagined it so we could enjoy the day with friends and family. We are SO glad we got a day-of coordinator so we could enjoy our special day stress free!

Debbie was the single best thing that we did for our wedding. A bridesmaid of mine that is in the wedding business recommended I contact Debbie after she worked with her at some of her weddings that she had been a part of. She was super responsive right away and throughout the entire process, which I really appreciated. She was so organized and everything went off seamlessly. She even has her own collection of wedding decor/accessories that she lets you use if you wish, which was so helpful. I had a lot of little things that I requested and she made sure that every one was ready and the way I requested. The reception was set up exactly how I wanted it and my mom and family members didn't have to lift a finger (which is also exactly what I wanted). Everything was organized and put away after the reception for us to pick up the next day. My husband is still asking me if we owe Debbie more money. She went above and beyond and I could not be more thankful. Go with Debbie for all of your wedding planning and coordinating needs and you will not be disappointed!

Extraordinary Service

Sunshine Events by Debbie offers top notch customer service and has a natural eye for detail. I have worked several Events with Debbie and was very impressed with her organization and skill! I noticed how she put her clients interest first and was impressed when she extended that interest to all the VIP's in the wedding party. She is talented and I know when I refer a bride to her, they will be well taken care of. I highly recommend her services.

Debbie is flat out AWESOME! She lays out everything you need to know and do from the start. She stays in touch and helps you stay on track with tasks to complete before the big day. She has many great ideas and great connections to help with every aspect of the wedding. I highly recommend working with Debbie, we don't know what we would have done with out her. Our wedding day could not have been any better! Thank you so much for all your help and everything you did for us!

Wonderful service!

I could not recommend Sunshine Events more! She did an amazing job with every aspect of the day-of coordinating. She was available any time we had questions leading up to the event as well. We used quite a few of her beautiful, wide array of wedding decor items which truly came in handy! The timeline she provided and the help planning the tiny details I never would have thought of by myself was SO helpful. She kept everyone on time and made sure everything that needed to be done got done while me and my family got to enjoy the wedding and celebrate! On top of her amazing service, Debbie is incredibly nice, pleasant, and truly a pleasure to work with! Thank you so much for all you did for our big day!!

Debbie is the BEST!!

I met Debbie through a friend and I could not be happier with her recommendation! When I met with Debbie she was super nice and informative! She laid out exactly what I would need for the big day and steered me in the right direction! I thought I knew exactly what I needed and what my planning was going to entail but I had no idea! I am young and this is my first (and only) wedding, I am so glad Debbie has been here to help me get all of my ducks in a row! I have been so happy with everyone she has put me in contact with. THANK YOU DEBBIE!!!
