“She’s not only an incredible planner, but she has a fantastic eye for design, and a huge heart.”
Wow. Where do I begin this review? To put it plainly: Becky singlehandedly saved our wedding and turned an absolutely devastating situation into a dream day. We got married in Portland and our venue was in the Columbia River Gorge the week the fire broke out, and due to the fire, our original venue was evacuated 5 days before our wedding. (Did I mention we were planning from Chicago and weren’t even on the ground when this was happening?) Thanks to Becky, we planned an ENTIRELY new wedding in 36 hours. We contacted over 100 venues the morning of the evacuation and miraculously found several to view the next day, when we flew in from Chicago. The new venue she found for us honestly rivaled our original venue in beauty and originality. Everything had to be reworked including several of our vendors, rentals, the timeline–everything. I ended up throwing her the reins completely for ALL our wedding day execution, setup and design. I don’t think she slept for four straight days–she never complained or showed any signs of being stressed. I know she was helping a bunch of other clients at the same time but it felt like we were her sole focus. Several guests at our wedding even took notice and came up to us and said, “I hope you guys know that your planner is hustling her little buns off!”
If you have budget for literally nothing else in your wedding–make hiring Becky your #1 priority. She’s not only an incredible planner, but she has a fantastic eye for design, and a huge heart. We are ETERNALLY grateful to her. I know that we will be toasting to Becky on our anniversary even when we’re old and grey, remembering that she saved our entire wedding! We love you, Becky!

“All I had to do was show up, relax and get ready.”
Where do I even start?! I couldn’t have imagined planning my wedding without Becky there to answer all of my questions, concerns and just to give advice. Always just an email, text or phone call away! She made sure I didn’t forget the little things, she checked in with all my vendors to make sure everything was good, and kept me on a schedule to where I could get everything done and not be overwhelmed and stressed out.. which during wedding planning that’s almost impossible not to be! But she did it, my planning process would have been a total disaster without her! And along with being there for me for almost a year counting up until the wedding, the wedding day she was a blessing! Her & her crew set up the entire venue, even better than how I pictured it in my head. She dealt with anything that didn’t go as planned and figured out a way to fix it. She welcomed all the vendors and told them where everything needed to be, and made it to where all I had to do was show up, relax and get ready. She made my wedding day the best day of my life, we couldn’t have done it all without her! If anyone is considering having a wedding planner, DO IT. Thank you Becky, thank you for making my dream wedding come to life!

Hiring Becky was one of the best decisions we made when we started planning our wedding. We knew we wanted a small elopement-style wedding, so we almost decided not to hire an event planner, but oh my goodness. You guys. HIRE BECKY. From the moment we first met with her we instantly felt comfortable placing our wedding in her hands. She went above and beyond to help bring all the details together and take the stress off of us on the wedding day so we could just enjoy the moment! And when we had to relocate our location two weeks before the wedding due to a fire in the Gorge, Becky helped keep us calm and that led to us finding a venue that was equal to/better than our original plan. She went above and beyond to make our day perfect, and I can’t imagine what it would’ve been like without her.

“She really took time to understand our vision for our wedding day.”
Becky did an incredible job and was an excellent wedding planner! I’m so glad that I found her. I don’t know how I would’ve planned a wedding by myself since I was in the process of moving, graduating college, and finding work. She really helped keep us on track with our planning, and was very encouraging and knowledgeable of all things wedding related! She really took time to understand our vision for our wedding day, which I really appreciated, and was also very good at suggesting creative ideas if I was clueless in a certain area. Not only did she do a great job helping us plan and stay organized, but she also helped keep everything on track on our big day. Thanks to her I was fully able to enjoy our entire wedding day by relaxing and soaking up every moment. There was not one second that I was worried about the details, because I knew she had it all in control. She did an amazing job and I would recommend her to anyone getting married anytime soon! She has different packages, so contact her and check them out. I am a firm believer that every bride should have at least a day of coordinator so they aren’t stressing themselves and their family out on their wedding day, and Becky is PERFECT for that and can also do so much more 🙂

“She managed all of the logistics on the day of and helped keep all of the stress away”
Our wedding day wouldn’t have been the same without Becky. She managed all of the logistics on the day of and helped keep all of the stress away. Her motto was, “Keep Calm and let Becky Handle it”. That phrase couldn’t have been more true. She kept everyone on schedule. I’m so glad that we had a wedding day coordinator. My mom was able to relax and enjoy the day without having to worry about keeping the party going. Becky was also super helpful during the planning process. I felt comfortable to ask her any kinds of questions. She always had great recommendations. I highly recommend her for your wedding planning or any other party planning. She’s the best!

“Becky is a calm presence that takes care of everything without bulldozing anybody.”
Becky was outstanding with planning and coordinating our wedding! We ended up moving away from the Eugene area the year before we got married, and I was in my first year of a new career, so it was a huge help to have Becky to recommend and contact (and follow up with) vendors. We wouldn’t have even known where to start without her! She saved us so much time and stress. It was also great to have a neutral party orchestrating everything so nobody’s family could take over. Becky is a calm presence that takes care of everything without bulldozing anybody. Becky designed the whole set up and decor for the wedding, as well as set everything up (and took it down). My husband didn’t want to pay for a wedding planner, but he was so grateful that we did. Considering how much we relied on Becky, her services are of great value and not expensive. She is extremely flexible, reliable, and fun to work with. She has lots of different services available, and is definitely worth meeting even if you aren’t sure you want a coordinator (but you do).

“The day of the wedding I didn’t have to worry about a single thing.”
Becky was a wonderful addition to our wedding team! From the beginning she was very helpful tracking down vendors, which was one of our main concerns living out of state. She was very flexible in meeting with us when we were in town, and is so lovely and friendly. She came and met us out our rental house the weekend of the wedding to run through the ceremony, and it was a huge relief to be able to see how everything was going to happen. The day of the wedding I didn’t have to worry about a single thing. Becky, her team of helper elves and my mother worked together to bring my vision to life, and everything looked exactly how I imagined it would. The timeline ran smoothly the whole night (even though I tried changing a few things partway through the day) and she was very accommodating. Everything was packed up the night of the wedding and I didn’t have to worry about returning rentals or waiting for people to pick stuff up, she took care of everything. We really couldn’t have been happier, my goal was that my family and I wouldn’t have to worry or work on the day of, and overall I think it was successful! If you’re thinking of hiring Becky and Event Crush, do it!

“Hiring Becky was the best wedding decision I made!”
There are not enough positive words I could say to share just how wonderful Becky is! I literally referred to her as my wedding angel throughout the process of wedding planning because without her I would not have had the wedding I dreamed of. I say that because little did I know how hard it would be to have the wedding I envisioned on the coast of Oregon. Hiring Becky was the best wedding decision I made! I’d recommend her over, and over again.
A few comments on working with Becky:
1. I’m not sure how I compared to other brides, but I felt like I had 1 million questions, and she was able to answer ALL of them! If it was a worry, she calmed me, if it was a concern about rentals, she went to the vendor and sent me pictures, if it was a floral question, she face timed me the sample. She truly covered it all!
2. One of my favorite parts of working with Becky was the fact that she was willing to go the extra mile to help. On the day of the wedding she picked up florals and some of our rentals in order to help cut costs and the day before the wedding she came to my rescue with extra rentals and handmade signs to cover some of the imperfections of the venue that we had forgotten about on our site visit the year prior. These are just two examples, however, it seemed every time I spoke with Becky she was offering up something I hadn’t thought of myself and I really appreciated al if her help.
3. On the actual day of the wedding Becky really worked hard to make everything come together and boy was it amazing!! When I walked through the door of our reception I was in awe of what she had done. I provided the vision, but she was the one who pulled it all together so effortlessly.
4. Through the whole planning process Becky was always quick to respond to emails/texts/phone calls and most importantly was always available to help as needed, which I really appreciated since I live in California and did not have access to any vendors.
