Kind Words from our Brides & Grooms

Dear Katie, Allyson, Giovanna, Brian and everyone else,

Alex and I just wanted to send you a very quick thank you for everything!  Everything was PERFECT!!!!!! It was everything that we wanted and more!  Everything just seemed to go smoothly, from our perspective, at least, I am sure there were little bumps that you guys saw and had to deal with, but on the day-of we did not see or know any of them.

What is so amazing is that I was not able to really explain or describe for you what we wanted and what I was envisioning, but you got it and made everything that i saw in my head become a reality.  That really proves how amazing you are at what you do!

The music was incredible!!!!!!!! People cannot stop telling us that this was by far the best band that they have ever seen, and how did they know to play our favorite songs...every single song was perfect.  They were convinced that we gave you guys a detailed list of 50 songs that needed to be played!!!!! As we did with Katie, we gave Brian and the band very little direction (or at least I thought) - we named a few songs (all of which you played), and then generally named genres of music we liked - you guys just knew exactly what we wanted!!!!!!!!!!!  So thank you, Brian, Scott and everyone else.  Alex's one (and I think only) "regret" is he said he wished he would have taken a moment to come and hang out with the band and get to know you guys because you were just so amazing.

Katie, thank you for everything and listening to me vent a little Friday at the rehearsal and Saturday morning! It really helped, you quickly calmed me back down and reminded me to relax and to remember not to sweat the small stuff and enjoy!

Alex and I both had such an amazing and perfect night! 

Thank you,

Dena and Alex

Allyson Levine Joseph was our main wedding planner for our wedding. Allyson is one of the best in the business. Her parents (Bob & Gail) started the company, which also has a fantastic music component to the business. We actually used one of their bands, Higher Ground, as our wedding band and they were fantastic. Allyson has strong relationships with the best wedding vendors in the area. Most importantly, she was able to get a sense for our vision and translate them into the best options in terms of style and colors, as well as which vendors would be a good match. Allyson goes above and beyond and she was always a phone call or email away. Before we hired her, I had an initial call with her and she followed up with me to offer advice as we were looking for and evaluating wedding venues. That willingness to provide her advice made her stand out to us vs. other wedding planners. Allyson and her team are Type A (like us) and we knew we could count on them to get things done in a timely manner. They kept us on our toes and engaged with us to make every decision along the way to ensure we were hitting our fast-moving timeline. With our full-time jobs it would have been impossible for us to plan our wedding ourselves along with our demanding schedules, so it was godsend to rely on Allyson and her team to take care of everything that we didn't have to worry about. They did everything from meeting with vendors, to stuffing and sending out our invitations, to purchasing and putting together items for our welcome bags. 

The Bob Gail team on the day of the wedding was extremely impressive. They were in communication with each other at every minute of the day, were available at any point that we needed them, rallied our friends and family together at the scheduled times, and made sure that the wedding was seamlessly executed and managed. We were really pleased with Allyson and the Bob Gail team, and, most importantly, our wedding was absolute perfection thanks to them!

Dear Allyson, Katie, Giovanna, & Bob Gail Team, 

Where do we even begin? Thank you for EVERYTHING you did to make our wedding day so spectacular. We had the BEST vendors thanks to you, and everything was just so magical and seamless. It was a truly magical and perfect day and weekend, and it wouldn't have been possible without you guys. We were so impressed with how "on it" you were on the day, from following us around with water to finding our lost family members to being by our side at any given moment we needed you. We were able to remain calm because we knew we could count on you 200%! You are all such a pleasure to work with and we felt very lucky and comforted to know we were in good hands! 

Love, Christine & David 

Bride & Groom



Dear Ally and Katie,

Thank you for planning, coordinating, and executing one of the best nights I will ever have in my life. The wedding was perfect. Everything was exactly what I imagined and wanted. You couldn't have been more right about the white dance floor and lighting (thank you for standing strong there).

I am still hearing from all friends and family about how it was one of the best weddings they have ever been to. Multiple people have asked if they can fly Jump Start out to a different city / country.

Hope to stay in touch - we will miss you!

Thank you again,

Jessica



Hello, with our deepest and most sincere gratitude for a job very well done! We will all truly have beautiful memories of this very special day in our lives . Most importantly, Dena and Alex let us know over and over again that this was everything they had envisioned and wanted and even more! What else can we wish for ! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

With love and much appreciation,

Denise and Shel

Mother & Father of the Bride



THE best complete family we could of asked for! In planning our daughter's wedding with nerves high this sensational caring & loving team did it all and made us feel like guest at our event!!! No need to worry about anything. Every second of planning... (design timelines, vendors, attending menu tasting, giving advise on anything we asked or needed!) they were right there with us! They really take the time to understand the needs, financial concerns feelings and general nerves of the family!! THE highest recommendations!!!! Have Bob Gail Events be involved in your special events.. the best ...

Bride's Mom



Allyson & Brian:

When parents have a daughter, especially an only child, they dream of her future. Will she meet someone who will love and protect her?
When that happens they have a vision of her wedding day. Will it be everything she would hope it to be?
Capturing that vision would not have been possible without you. The flowers were spectacular; the centerpieces perfect and the band kept everyone moving from start to finish. What we thought would be insanely overwhelming and stressful was actually a sea of calm during the entire planning process. This was made possible due to your professionalism and attention to detail. You even managed to connect with the weather gods and create a dry day when rain was forecast. 
Thank you for making it possible to relax and savor every moment of Whitney's special day. It was absolutely perfect and made for a lifetime of memories. We are so grateful to have had the chance to work with you. 

Best regards,
Judy and Rich
(Parents of the bride)



I worked with Katie Pincus and the Bob Gail team for my wedding, and they were amazing -- from the first time we met and explained the vision for our wedding, I felt that they got it, and they didn't disappoint throughout the planning process.  Katie introduced us to some amazing vendors, and was also very open to some that I found on my own - and what came together was the day of my dreams that perfectly executed my vision.  

In the last couple of weeks and on my wedding day, Katie and her team fully took over, and I was truly able to relax and enjoy the day with my family and friends.  They quietly handled the inevitable issues that arose - and only consulted me on a few necessary items.  I've heard from many brides that they didn't eat and don't truly remember the day, but that wasn't the case for us.  Thanks to Katie and her team for making our wedding day a dream that we were actually able to fully enjoy and remember.

Dear Ally, 

Thank you so much to the whole Bob Gail Team for everything you all did, but mostly for your love, support, thought, effort, and production. Everything was so wonderful, from start to finish, and on the actual wedding weekend, absolute perfection in every possible way. It was really special having you be such an important part of our special time, as our planner, and mostly, as our friend. You went above and beyond and we are forever grateful. This is a small token of our appreciaition, but nothing will ever amount to what we will always feel in our hearts. 

Lots of love,

Natty & Jon D.  



Katie and the entire BG team,

Thank you so much for making our wedding weekend so magical. Everything was beyond organized, easy and beautiful!!!

We couldn't have made it through without all of you.

The band really brought their A-game and truly made the event a fun one. The coordinators executed like no other, and Bob on guitar was the icing on the cake.

We have not stopped receiving compliments on the entire evening.

Now off to Espana.

Love,

Mr. and Mrs. Rozen 



Dear Katie, 

Words cannot describe our sheer joy and appreciation when we reflect back to all the painstaking work and detail you devoted to Alexa and Matt's wedding to make it perfect. Thank you. 

Louise and Jack B.

(Mother and Father of the Bride)



I can not say enough about Katie Pincus and the Bob Gail staff. When I was searching for a wedding planner, I didn't realize just how important she would be because it's something that is behind the scenes. Now that I am married, I can honestly say that Katie made our wedding and was absolutely worth every penny, if not more.

Not only was she and her team insanely organized but she was patient, thoughtful, had great ideas, gave us many options, was great with my parents, knew her stuff and is just all around an awesome person.

I would absolutely work with Bob Gail for the next event i plan.

Alexa L.



Thank you so much for making our day more special than we could have ever imagined. We appreciate all of your hard work and cannot express in words how appreciative we are. We hope to work with you again in the near future! 

Love, 

KK and Zach



Hi


Just a quick thank you for all your hard work yesterday in making the wedding such a wonderful day.  You already know how much it meant to Andrew and Heather but the rest of my family will treasure the memories forever.


Angela, Mother of the Groom 



Hey Ally, Katie, + team,

THANK YOU SO MUCH!  We had an amazing time and felt incredibly in control and extremely well taken care of on our wedding day.  Favorite comment was one of my groomsmen thought you guys were the secret service.

The whole event was absolutely beautiful and the design elements fantastic.  Good call on going with the printed napkins as I didn't realize that our friends were planning to turn them into headbands and also swing them in the air constantly...lol. 

The wedding came off better than I could've dreamed.

Thanks!

Jeff



Hi Michelle and Katie,

 

Everything was beautiful yesterday! We received so many compliments on the decor, and everyone loved the flowers (especially my mother and I!) Thanks again for making the Catalina room and the tent look fantastic.

 

You've been wonderful to work with and made my big day extra special!

 

Jen



Ally,

I have to tell you what a pleasure it was to have you, Kay, and your team here last night.

I am so pleased we had the opportunity to work with you on this wedding. I can’t say enough about how talented and professional your team is – everyone from Kay and the girls to the band. A serious 5 star team!

Jen and Ben were so happy this morning!

Thank you for giving Fairmont Miramar that extra glow last night!

Sending you all my love, respect and gratitude!

Xo,

Krystal



Hi Katie,

Wow!!!! Everything you all did at Susanna's wedding was top notch! The way you lit Cicada brought out all its beauty! It looked positively magical. The flowers were really perfect and many people commented on how much they liked the varied arrangements. And the band!!!!!!!!! Incredible!!!!! The guests could not stop dancing. Sooo many compliments about the band. Please pass this along to Brian, Scott and all the band members and staff involved how happy Rich and I are with Bob Gail!!!

Best, 

Pat, Mother of the Bride



Best Wedding EVER!!! - We initially reached out for coordination and fell in love with the team at Bob Gail. Allyson, Alessa, Danielle, and Brian all made us feel like family and we decided to go with them for everything: florals, linens, lighting, DJ, and photo booth. On a day that most say is stressful--we felt completely at ease thanks to this dynamic group. :) Our wedding at Casa Del Mar in Santa Monica is one that our guests say they will remember forever thanks to their attention to detail.

Meghan



Brian, Katie, and Carol:

I don’t even know what to say to you guys to convey how happy we are with everything you did to make our wedding amazing. Maybe every bride feels this way, but I seriously think our wedding was the best event ever. Brian – you were so right about the band. Everyone keeps telling us that the entire thing reflected our personalities, and you guys chose the perfect first dance song for us. We loved it. Now it’s of course our favorite song.

I’ve posted some reviews and am happy to serve as a reference for future brides. I have some friends who have asked for your contact information for bar and bat mitzvahs. I guess we will see you in about 14 years for a bar or bat mitzvah?

Take care and thanks again for the exceptional service every single member of your team provided.

Michelle & Mark



Hi Allyson,

Thank you for everything!!! It's been a month (cannot believe that), but I do want to tell you, even at this late date, how beautiful Dan and Marina's wedding was. You did an incredibly fabulous job---everything I could have imagined and more! The only mistake Marina made in the planning was not using you to coordinate the entire wedding. I believe she feels that way as well. You are a very special gal, Allyson. I so loved the short time we spent together and certainly hope that we are able to keep in touch over the years. I know you have many friendships which have blossomed from initially having designed someone's special event. I understand why and I am certainly one of your admirers. Your superb talent coupled with your warmth and love are just amazing. You are truly a one in a million!

Best of luck at your own upcoming wedding...Oh that I could be there to see it...it will be spectacular!!! I wish you a life filled with love and joy.

Fondly,

Patti



Dear Brian and Katie,

Wow!  I don't know where to begin.  The whole 4 days of celebrations were terrific.  Your attention to detail as well as your astute personal connection to the bride and groom's needs and taste was spectacular.

There was nothing that I felt you thought too big or small to deal with. I appreciate how you worked with us, and our style, even as it developed. You all really are the whole package.  Katie, you were EVERYWHERE on Saturday. Brian, the band was fabulous, as was all the music. We had SO SO many compliments on the band, and we are still giving referrals. All the flexibility you all showed throughout was appreciated.

Thank you for working with us to make Julia and Robbie's day a memorable and happy event for all.  That is (forgive the AMEX ripoff) priceless. 

Best,

Celeste (Mother of the Bride)



Allyson and Katie,

Thank you so much for everything !!

The flowers were beautiful and my bouquet… amazing !! much better than I could ever imagined. Perfect!!

Thank you so much!

Thank you

Fernanda



Dear Katie & Brian,

Thank you for all of your hard work to make our wedding day as perfect as it was. We loved everything from the ceremony musicians, to the flowers, to the overall décor. And Katie, special thanks to you and Alexi for your support and guidance on our special day; you both had a calming and professional demeanor that helped us relax and enjoy the day! You guys are excellent professionals and we will recommend you in the future.

Megan & Andrew



 

Dear Allyson and All her support team,

A very special thanks to all of you for making Megan and Larry’s fairytale wedding come true. The weekend events seemed to flow effortlessly, even though it rained. I’m sure behind the scenes it must have been crazy. Allyson, you were amazing. If you were stressed it never showed on your face, nor did I hear anything in your voice. Your idea to hold the wedding in front of the fireplace was genius. It felt like we were sitting in my living room sharing this special moment with family and friends. I LOVED IT! My hat goes off to you for always remaining professional and calm. Allyson, your calming and reassuring words were appreciated more than you will ever know. The weekend was beautiful and the memories will be treasured forever. Again, we can’t thank you enough for the fantastic weekend.

All our love,

Lolly and Michael 



Dear Bob, Katie and Brian,

Michele’s wedding was spectacular and I wanted to thank you so very much for everything that you did to make her day a magical one that she and her new husband will treasure forever. Michele said that she had a “fairytale wedding” and that Katie made her feel like a “princess!” Katie and Brian, you took care of everything and were so gracious and accommodating. Katie didn’t overlook anything and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. We had people on the dance floor until the very end – and tried not to get too out of hand – but Brian made the music flow so perfectly that everyone felt compelled to get out there, dance and whoop it up! The warm, sunny weather was a bonus – we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything – you all are THE BEST!

Thank you all again!

Hi Katie,

Well, we just got back from our honeymoon and it was amazing! I recommend Tahiti and the islands to everyone!

We just wanted to thank you for an amazing wedding! You and Brian did an outstanding job on the flowers, the band, and all the details! It could not have been any more beautiful! Every guest commented on how elegant and classy the arrangements were. You guys really understood what we wanted and you made it happen!

It was such a pleasure working with you Katie. You were such a calm and soothing element for me! It was run perfectly and smoothly, I don't remember freaking out once! HAHA

All in all, we are overwhelmed by everything! I look at pictures and go, wow that was really really pretty!

I will recommend you to everyone! It was such a pleasure to have had you on my team! I'm sad it is all over, but I'm so happy with how it went. Thank you so much!

Love, 

Rustin and Juliana



Hi Katie Kitchen-

You are awesome! What a gorgeous, fabulous, amazing job you did for Carra. It was everything she hoped for and you made it happen. How can I thank you enough? Katie Kitchen- you are a-m-a-z-i-n-g. Thank you so, so much.

Xoxo

Ally and Katie, 

All along you have had a - nothing is too much attitude, coupled with a great sense of humor, amazing foresight and talent and ..... you really, really got and get Niki, me and our family.  My respect for how you love and respect your family is high high high, up there. 

This just all went perfect. My girl looked like an angel and felt like a princess.  She partied like a rock star and enjoyed along with her amazing, sweetheart of a man, her special day.

We all did.  It was just A-1 perfect.  I give it an A++++.  It was an 11.   A fabulous party, a satisfied family and from the comments I am starting to receive, just an all out success.  A beautiful memory was made for this family this weekend, one that will stay with us forever.

I can't thank you enough Ally and Katie and the rest.

Love, Geri



Dear Allyson,

How fortunate we were to have you planning and guiding every detail of our beautiful wedding. Thank you so much Allyson for making our special day so memorable. Please extend our thanks and appreciation to everyone at Bob Gail for making our dreams come true.

Warmly,

Mark & Winston



Ally!!!

I can't thank you enough for pulling off my dream wedding. We were so happy to have you throughout the planning, but then on the day of you still blew us away with all the small details and how organized you were and how high you kept standards for the other vendors. And then- you managed to have all our stuff transported/ organized/ bridal suite decorated with music on... AMAZING !!!

I love you and could not imagine this incredible day without you!

Dear Allyson,

I just wanted to thank you for the amazingly, efficient way you handled our very important day.  You were so professional and laser-like in your execution.  That was definitely needed.

Again, thank you.

My best,

Tracey Friedman
(Mother of the Bride)



 

Allyson, Brian, Alexi and Katie:

 

Josh and I have returned from our mini moon (ended up at The Parker - story for another time) and our first week at work, and all we want to do is go back to our magical, wonderful wedding.

 

Thank you just isn't enough for all you did with the decor, flowers, set up, music and coordination.  Everyone we talked to has said it was the best wedding they have been to!  And it was all that I imagined and more.

 

People were in awe of the flowers and the music.  I have had people who don't normally like bands at weddings say the band was amazing.  And they were.  But the DJ was so fantastic and kept up with the dancing crowd we had.

 

And Allyson, thank you for letting me, my husband and my family enjoy the event to the fullest by being on top of everything.

 

We hope that this is the first of many joyous Kamali Kruskol life events that you will be a part of.

 

Warmly,

Negin and Josh



Bob Gail Team:

Wow!! "Thank you" is hardly sufficient to express how much we appreciate the fantastic job you did producing our wedding and rehearsal dinner parties. Everything was amazing!

We never dreamed the details would all come together to create such magical experiences. The memories are countless... and we have you to thank for making it happen!

We look forward to working with you agian.

Thanks again!!

Elizabeth and Steve



Brian,

We just wanted to send a BIG “Thank you” for your performance at our daughter’s wedding. Ellen and Aaron will have fond memories for many years to come.
Several of our guests commented afterward how amazed they were by the band, and how you just gave it our all. We really appreciated your creativity, while sharing your wonderful talent with us that evening.
Thank you for a job well done!

Sincerely,
Deborah and Bruce
(Parents of the bride)
