Wedding 7/12/2014

Nequal, you, Stephanie and Regina are gems! From day 1, you all took a weight off us mom's shoulders. I'm sure I also speak for Patricia when I say the following. Your servant's attitude of wanting to serve, bless, and please us, your customers was greatly appreciated. Whatever we needed, your reply was, "Ok, no problem, we can do that." :-) Our guests ask, "Who is the coordinator? They are good!" You're on time, every time. If we needed advice, suggestions, opinions, you politely offered. Your professionalism and gentle, take-charge-of-the-situation personality was just what we needed and perfectly administered. You work well under pressure and are very flexible. Oh, and when we opened the door to the reception, I was wow'd! It was so beautiful. And, you're affordable! I really can't say enough. So, I'll stop and just say thank you and that we feel like we not only gained great party planners but also some new friends. Thank you for helping to make our son and daughter's wedding reception beautiful and a great success.

Vineyard Wedding 6/21/2014

Hi Nequal,

 Thank you and your team for all of your hard work in making our wedding more than what we imagined. It was such a pleasure working with such a flexible and talented group of women. You all brought such positive filled energy to every conversation and task. We truly enjoyed working with you and leaning on your expertise as well as sharing some of our wishes and experiences to build the most memorable event. You asked us to give you feedback on improvement and we could honestly say that there was nothing else that could have been done better. You provided over the top customer service, which is truly something special and makes you stand out from all other businesses. Your hard work and determination shows your pride and love for your business. We would absolutely recommend you to anybody looking for event coordination, food & photography.

Services that stood out beyond compare to any other organization:
Food: Always Party Planning took the food tasting to our home! They showed up on time, well prepared and eager to listen to feedback. They took notes and incorporated every suggestion that we had to cater to our needs. During the event the food was spectacular. The taste and presentation was top notch. We had many guests going back for seconds and sometimes thirds! At the end of the night the team presented us with a box filled with our favorite foods and cake from the party to take with us back to the hotel. It was such a sweet jester.

 Photography: the photographer was very professional and had some really great ideas on poses and backdrops. We had a lot of fun taking pictures. She definitely went above and beyond her call of duty when it came to capturing special moments. My family was just stunned when she ran into the room (literally) when she heard about my 4 year old son asking me to dance. She wanted to capture this moment of a son and daughter dance even though it was well beyond the agreed upon time frame for photography.

 Service: Their service is impeccable from the first encounter to the last. The coordination was amazing from nailing down the menu, picking out the cake, scheduling the photographer and talking through the specifics of the event and contract. Our family and friends continue to complement our wedding in that the service was just unlike anything that they have ever experienced.

 Again, thank you so much for all of your support and hard work. If anybody is contemplating using Always Party Planning for their event have them call me because I’m sure I could convince them based on the experience that we had for our wedding.

It was an absolute pleasure!

On a side note, you girls do need to do a better job promoting yourselves though and beefing up your website. You are way too good to not flaunt it!

Thank you,

Seth Thurston 

TPT Grand Opening 1/2014

After a significant amount of dedication and hard work, the team at TPT-Thurston Personal Training was ready to announce its Grand Opening to the public.  We wanted to plan this very special event to thank old and existing clients, and also, to welcome new clients.  Since the event had to be perfect by showcasing the new TPT Facility while simultaneously highlighting the partner company of Lifestyle Healthy Food and Nutrition, we wanted to hire only the best party planning company-Always Party Planning.  The staff at APP was very professional, reponsive, creative, and always available to plan and discuss event details.  We felt confident in the expertise and abilities of APP, and on the day of the event, was so stress-free and relaxed, that we were actually looking forward to being guest at our own party!  The facility was decorated beautifly and exactly what we had envisioned.  The APP staff took excellent care of our guest, insuring every need was met and helped to facilitate the promotion of all TPT and LHFN services.  The TPT grand opening was a huge success and a wonderful event it is without hesitation , that I recommend always party planning for any big or small event coordination.

Seth Thurston-Owner, TPT



Kandee & Stephen wedding 4/2013

We are so happy-thank you for helping us pull off all the family surprises.  I used APP for our wedding in April.  I came to them after firing our wedding coordinator whom we hadn't heard from in six months and who wanted to charge us an exorbitant amount just to show up the day of the event.  Less than 4 months before the wedding!  Oh, yeah, I was in a bind!  We had the event at a remote venue in Verde Valley and they helped us plan exactly what we wanted.  THEY LISTEN!!!  They do what you want, how you want it and when you want it.  They're flexible when things happen or change and work together as a team.  The team consists of the creative and the organized.  A perfect combination to get you the perfect event.  The fee was reasonable and we were able to relax and enjoy our day.  The fact that it was all inclusive for planning, cake, photography, and decorating made it easier than working with separate entities for each.  They negotiated with other outside vendors for us as well, and that was a true blessing.  They offered to do more and, had we more time before we hired them, I would have had them do my bachelorette party and  the rehearsal dinner too.  Things always go wrong at an event like this, but they handled it with professionalism and discretion.  To be honest, I didn't even know about it and it did not impact our day at all.  And now they are doing the follow-up - a debriefing if you will.  We get to go over everything, make recommendations, and, be sure all the after-wedding details are done.  Would I recommend them?  Yes.  Would I recommend them to close family and friends?  Yes.  Can you afford them?  Do whatever you have to do - they are worth every dollar and every minute of NOT having to stress about the biggest day of your life.  

The Details:  

Event Size - 85-100 people
The Venue - Alcantara Winery, Verde Valley, AZ
Multiple Out of Town Guests so the event lasted 3 days
Wedding Party - 10 including the Bride and Groom

baby shower 4/2013

I recently had my second event with these ladies, a baby shower for one of my nieces. These ladies are the total package.  The cupcakes Gina made were delicious, Nequal has a quiet calm about her and a keen ability to sense exactly what is needed and when.  Stephanie has an artistic eye and knows how to capture the perfect memory.  These ladies are the total package.  The will treat your event like it is the most important event of their life.  You will walk away feeling like part of their family.

wedding 4/2012

I have nothing but great things to say about these ladies (Nequal, Regina, Stephanie and Heather) and their amazing work.  They came in on the day of the wedding and helped set up my reception and ceremony site.  Everything came out amazing and exactly how I envisioned it without being able to be there to give direction.  They really came through and delivered on such an important day.  I was more then pleased! I was a very happy BRIDE.  I recommend them, you won't be disappointed!!

Jessica & Dillon Hernandez wedding 6/2012

These ladies (Steph, Nequal and Regina)  were life savers at my wedding this past June!  They were so organized and helpful from the ceremony to the reception, I don't even want to imagine how everything would have gone if they were not there to help.  I had a pretty vague time line of how I wanted the reception to go due to my procrastination, but theses ladies made it happen so smoothly I did not have to worry about a thing on my big day!  I even had a small spill on my dress and they were prepared with an emergency kit to help make my wedding day go so well!  They are honestly the best and I would recommend them to any bride for their services.


Maria C. wedding 8/2012

Nequal, Regina and Stephanie owners of Always Party Planning were amazing!  I truly mean it when I say that could  not have pulled he wedding off so flawlessly without them.  The time line she put together for me was perfect, and it made the wedding flow effortlessly.  I can not even begin to tell you how many comments I received from the guests that said it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to, and I completely attribute this to how perfectly the ladies kept the pace and the momentum of the wedding going.  And more importantly, she took care of all the details before the ceremony and setting up for the reception, and executed them exactly how I wanted so I didn't have to worry about a thing except getting dressed.  I would recommend her to any bride who wants to have an amazing wedding!
