Something to Celebrate provided all the services needed to result in the most beautiful wedding my daughter and son-in-law could have ever had!!! From the initial interview with Lauren, our wedding planner, to the final minutes following the wedding reception, I truly know we made the best choice in selecting Something to Celebrate to plan, offer advice, and execute all tasks regarding the wedding!
Lauren was so helpful in offering ideas, advice, meeting with us at our convenience! The wedding itinerary and coordination of all vendors was perfect - thanks to Lauren!
I never felt like I was "just a customer"! Something to Celebrate offered the that personal touch needed to ensure that my daughter and son-in-law had the wedding of their dreams!

If you want an amazing wedding planner, don't hesitate to contact Lauren Carrillo at Something to Celebrate. I couldn't have asked for someone more organized or hands on for an extremely memorable day. She was at every meeting with me, on time and always gave me the best input. You won't be disappointed with the help of Lauren. She made the day flawless. She was on top of every little thing and when I lost my earring back on the dance floor, she took the back off of the earrings she was wearing... simply the best! Thank you so much to Lauren with Something to Celebrate for making my wedding absolute perfection. I could NOT have done it without you!

A few months into the wedding planning process I realized that hiring a planner was an absolute necessity. I had seen Resha, from Something to Celebrate, in action at a previous wedding and knew the work she produced, plus the bride from that wedding highly recommended her. My husband, parents, and I met with Resha and booked shortly thereafter. Throughout the entire process she was quick to respond to all e-mails, worked around our crazy schedules to ensure we followed our timeline, and understood and successfully helped to execute my vision.
On the day of the wedding, Resha's itinerary kept every vendor and wedding party member on time, which equaled to zero stress for me :) I had no worries that things wouldn't turn out as expected because I knew Resha was on the scene and had our backs! Our wedding day was beyond perfect and guests raved not only about the big day but about Resha as well.
If there was a way to hire Resha as my life planner then I totally would (make dentist appointments, negotiate a good deal on a new house, etc.), she is amazingly organized, trustworthy, and knowledgeable.
Highly recommend Something to Celebrate and Resha!

Resha was the wedding planner for our daughter's wedding. She got right on board with our daughter's vision for her wedding. She had wonderful ideas and really helped us navigate through the process. The venue required that everything be brought in...tables, chairs, food, etc. If we hadn't had Resha I think it would have been terribly difficult to get it all together. She made it easy for us and we actually got to enjoy the day without any cares or stress. Our daughter said that it was the perfect wedding and exactly what she had always dreamed of -- 'Nuf said!!

We totally enjoyed working with Resha to plan our daughter's wedding. Resha's very professional and knows the business extremely well.

We hired Lauren to coordinate our wedding and she was amazing. Her professionalism and confidence allowed us to feel grounded, especially as the big date drew near. Weddings can be hectic to organize and we felt Lauren did an outstanding job. As a bonus, she helped us out by returning some of our rental gear. We couldn't have had our perfect wedding experience without her help. Thanks so much Lauren! We highly recommend her.

After booking our church and reception venu, Resha and Something to Celebrate were recommended to us by a girl at our reception venu. I am not from Houston, which is where we had our wedding, and did not live there during the wedding planning process. We knew that having a wedding planner was going to be a must, and after our first meeting with Resha I knew I was going to LOVE working with her. If I could sum up the entire year of planning with Resha in a few words, I would have to say it felt like I was planning the entire wedding with my best friend. She was always there to answer my questions, no matter how crazy I sounded, and I never felt uncomfortable talking to her about anything. If anything went wrong the day of the wedding I had absolutely no idea because for us, the day went by flawlessly. I can not recommend Resha and all of the girls at something to celebrate enough. She brought my vision to life and the day ended up being more than I ever could have dreamed.

I found Resha through a friend who had nothing but good things to say about her, and I'm so glad I took that recommendation! Resha always responded to ALL my e-mails (even the stupid ones) super fast. I went through 30+ venues and changed my mind about things a few times, but she never made me feel like it was any trouble. Whenever I told my other vendors who my wedding coordinator was - it was met with excitement (she makes everything fun and easy for us) and a small amount of "fear" (like oh man we have to bring our A game for her)! Exactly the type of attitude I'd want my vendors to have to ensure my wedding was flawless - which it was!!! Our family and bridal party could not stop raving about Resha and all my vendors (whom or course she recommended)! Do yourself a favor and get with Resha!

You ABSOLUTELY need a coordinator on your wedding day, so do yourself a favor and hire Resha. She was available 24/7 to address any of my needs by e-mail and phone. The week of my wedding I didn't have to worry about anything. Resha was the buffer b/w me and all of my vendors. My husband, family, and wedding party all commented on how awesome she was throughout the weekend. I couldn't have done it without her!

Lauren Carrillo and her wonderful team worked our wedding back in March and we couldn't have asked for a better coordinator. Although we were only able to afford weekend services, Lauren made herself available at ALL times and answered many of my annoying questions. Her team was there for me on my big day, not only for my nerves but to handle all of the vendors. Althoguh my wedding is over, my friends is using Something To Celebrate and my sister-in-law recently became engaged and the first person we thought of was Lauren, can't wait to see her team again! We couldnt reccomend this team enough!
Thank you for everything.

When it came to my wedding planning, I had everything picked out (or at least I thought I did), but I needed someone to help bring it all together for the big day so we could enjoy the day to the fullest. Lauren Carillo of Something To Celebrate was recommended to me by my sister who was in another wedding that Lauren coordinated. I accepted by sister's recommendation and didn't look back. Lauren was not only very professional, well organized and knowledgeable, but also very genuine and thoughtful. We met two or three times prior to the wedding. The meetings were conducted efficiently, but not rushed. She was very familiar with practically all of our vendors and knew all of the right questions to ask in order to make our day seamless. When it came to the actual wedding day, it was as though she was a puppeteer in that, she was fully in control, but yet, you didn’t see her. We were fully prepared for our wedding day and thanks to Lauren, it is a day that we will remember more fondly than I could have imagined!

First of all, I really liked the versatility of STC allowing you to choose the level of help you think you'll need. Lauren Carrillo was my wedding coordinator and she is just excellent at what she does. Here are my comments:
1- We had the right amount of meetings and the communication was always very effective. She was very organized following up with emails and I was terrible at responding them but she was very persistent to obtain the information she needed in a timely manner. :o)
2- I don't have any family in the US and my Maid of Honor also lives abroad, so I had very little help from anybody else apart from Lauren during the planning phase of my wedding. She was always reachable to answer all my questions and concerns, maintaining a very nice and professional attitude.
3. The big day came and she had everything under control; there was not a single detail that she hasn't thought of and the beauty of it, in my view, is that it still felt very natural, there was a very spontaneous flow of events taking place throughout the evening that had all been meticulously planned and she (and her team) made it all seamless.
I can not be more thankful, I had a perfect day!

Something to Celebrate completely made my wedding. My coordinator was Resha Zazueta and she was amazing. I had a ton of vendors and many fine details that were hard to keep track of and monitor. I am VERY picky and I like things to be a certain way and I was accommodated every step of the way. Resha kept in communication with me the entire time and was always receptive and easy to get a hold of, even with the simplest questions I had, or something I wanted to go over for the millionth time. Because of Resha, the wedding was absolutely perfect and I didnt have to worry about anything that day and could relax and enjoy my wedding day. After interviewing several coordinators, it was clear that only one company had the experience to handle what we needed and it was made obvious the day of. I can not recommend STC highly enough. If you want a stress free wedding experience, put your wedding in the hands of STC (Resha in particular)!!

We met Lauren a good 10 months prior to our big day (we're early planners) and we immediately were impressed by her professionalism and enthusiasm. We decided to hire her as our day-of coordinator but she was also very helpful with suggestions on different vendors. In fact many of our vendors (caterer, DJ, photographer) came from her recommendations and we were very happy with all our choices.
As I said we're early planners and we had tons of questions and ideas and Lauren had to deal with a lot of our emails :-) but she was always very sweet and helpful.
She really should have been wearing a cape during our wedding day because she was our hero, always there to save the day and help avoid any crisis. From fixing a broken zipper for one of the bridesmaids dresses to ensuring the whole afternoon and evening flowed seamlessly, she truly made the whole process very easy. We would highly recommend Lauren and Something to Celebrate.

Our day of wedding coordinator, Lauren Carrillo from Something to Celebrate did just an absolutely fantastic job. Her detailed planning and execution was thoughtful, thorough and attentive. She truly made our special day stress free. Words cannot thank her enough! Weeks later, family and friends are still asking who that amazing Wedding Coordinator was! Awesome job and thank you Lauren Carrillo and Something to Celebrate!

I had Lauren Carrillo as my day-of wedding planner, but she did so much more than just help out the day of my wedding. Lauren gave me great recommendations for vendors (florist, linen rentals, etc.) who were fantastic to work with. She also put together a written run through and itinerary of my entire wedding day. The day of the wedding, Lauren had everything all set up and ready to go, so all I had to do was show up! She made sure all of the vendors had everything all set up how I wanted and directed guests where they needed to go. During the wedding she had the itinerary on her ipad and made sure everything was running smoothly and on time. I highly recommend Lauren and Something to Celebrate. They made planning my wedding totally stress free and they are great at what they do!

R is also for Resha, my amazing rockstar coordinator without whom I would've been stressed out beyond belief and at a total loss. I was planning most of my wedding from out of town and Resha was always available and willing to work with my hectic schedule. She also helped saved the day when our guest count more than doubled with only a month or so to go. On top of that, she helped coordinate bringing in 18 trees into my venue to help realize my dream of an enchanted garden. Resha is kind, patient, fun to work with, creative, spunky and extremely well organized. Without her tremendous help, my fairytale wedding would not have come true!

I wasn't sure that I needed a coordinator, but working with Resha with Something to Celebrate was the best decision we made. She was a huge source of support through the whole planning process. I was continually impressed with her response time on (what tuned out to be hundreds) of emails. She made sure that we just relaxed the week of our wedding. I'm not sure how we would have pulled off our dream wedding without here. I can't say enough how awesome she is.

I used Lauren Carrillo as my wedding planner, and everything went perfectly. Lauren is amazing at what she does, completely organized to every last detail, and enthusiastic to help out in any way. She definitely made my wedding stress free and absolutely perfect.
Member Since: 6/16/2011
Like many reviewers have stated, Lauren was THE reason my wedding went off without a hitch. Her attention to detail and amazing organization killed it. She thought of everything and made sure every detail was covered. Moreover, she was a dream to work with, always answering my questions and concerns quickly, all with unwavering optimism that this stressed out bride so badly needed. If you can afford a planner like Lauren, it's the biggest wedding gift you can gift yourself. The day of the wedding I did exactly what I hoped I would be able to do: enjoy all the special moments with husband, family and friends...thanks Lauren :)
