My husband and I could not express how thankful and amazing Allison of Forget Me Knot Events was for our wedding we just had at West Shore Cafe.  In January of this year, my fiance and I decided we would like to get married in Tahoe in a short 6 months instead of waiting for the following summer.   We knew we would need a creative planner who would help us pull it off since we live in Sacramento.  Allison was above and beyond.  We had calls with many planners in the Tahoe area, and it was crystal clear to us that Allison was the best. I've planned many large corporate events in my career,  and I wanted a full service planner to be make it feel like I wasn't working at planning my own wedding.  From selecting our vendors to the teeny tiny details, she made it all a breeze.  She was warm, super creative, has amazing taste,  extremely organized and she was ready to start planning right away.

When we received our mood board to get an idea on our style I immediately knew we made the right choice. She took my very indecisive pinterest board and made something so beautiful and cohesive.  I never worried for one second during our wedding planning process and she pulled through in every way.  Our wedding day was flawless;  it was more than I could have imagined and then some.  I can't emphasize it enough, she was worth every single penny and I will forever always be grateful for everything she had planned for us.   We received so many compliments on our wedding day details and I wish I could have taken credit for any  of it but it was ALL Allison and we've been day dreaming and reliving the day since!

Our wedding was a large production requiring portable restrooms and backup generator for a remote outdoor historic location. We also threw in a surprise western shootout performance and a surprise dancing flashmob including a live singer. And there was a torrential rainstorm with lightning. Allison was flawless in handling the hurdles and keeping us calm and on schedule. As the bride I was able to let her take the reigns so that I could absorb the beauty of the day. Allison of Forget Me Knot Events and Design felt like part of our family. We highly recommend her services.

Our wedding was truly magical, and I owe it all to Forget Me Knot events. Allison and Donna are wizards of the wedding world (cheesy I know, but that's what they are) and they made the unimaginable possible! Our "winter wonderland" wedding turned into a full-blown blizzard just in time for our guests to begin arriving. Cue bridal panic. Within a matter of days we needed to switch our outdoor ceremony to an indoor ballroom location (much to our dismay). However, we thankfully had hired the dream-team of Allison and Donna, and they created a beautiful ceremony setting that was beyond what I could have imagined. They were on the phone with rental companies, making last minute trips to Homegoods, and updating our vendors with new details all within 24 hours of our wedding. Obviously this could have been a stressful situation for any bride, but with their help I honestly felt so at ease. On the day of the wedding my husband and I were so thankful for the constant support of these incredible wedding planners. From helping me to re-sew my bustle when it fell due to my aggressive dancing, to maintaining the pacing of the night, to making sure our guests had to-go cake, they were there every step of the way. If you're considering Forget Me Knot events for your wedding, book them immediately. You'll be so glad you did!

I could not have pulled off my perfect wedding day without Allison! Her creativity, attention to detail, and strong personality were invaluable to me throughout the planning process and especially on the day of my wedding. We had our wedding on top of a mountain 3 hours from our home in Reno which didn’t make anything easy, but from the very beginning she understood my vision and helped me to achieve everything I wanted. When I had difficulty getting what I was after with my florist, Allison stepped in and helped so much by offering new and creative suggestions based on all her past experience. She helped me put together a timeline for the wedding weekend and was on top of things that I never would have even thought of. On the day of the wedding she was a Rockstar! She coordinated with all of the vendors and setup so I didn’t have to worry about a thing! She kept us on track throughout the day and was such a joy to be around. The entire wedding party was so impressed! I would definitely recommend Allison for any wedding or special event! She is amazing!!!

Absolute must to have Allison for your special day! I live in Chicago and planned my proposal in Lake Tahoe and nothing was short of perfection. Allison is so great to work with, and was constantly in communication with me for many months, and she really made me feel like she was my friend. We threw a boho-styled picnic at sunset located on Sand Harbor Beach, and with Allison's expertise and creativity we were able to make everything come to life and enjoy the moments of that evening without having to worry about a single thing. I had everything in my head planned out to a T, with multiple Pinterest boards for the exact look I wanted. I have to give Allison so much credit for being so patient and understanding of my dream proposal, and I wouldn't have had it any other way. I will be making a video recap of the proposal soon just to show you how talented she is, and how grateful we are that we had her help! Thanks forever Allison :)
