Hi Angelica, Just got back from holidays and wanted to say a big thanks to you, Juliet and the Green Orchids team for all your help over the last year and on our wedding day.
It was all a bit surreal on the day so didn’t get to say thank you properly and how much we appreciate everything you did to make our wedding special.
Everything was absolutely perfect! Legends looked spectacular, better than I ever could have envisioned. We left in such a rush, I hope there wasn’t much to clean up and that the left over beer was put to good use J
Thank you also for your patience with my year of questions (probably a million) and my scattered brain the week leading up.
We had an awesome time and it wouldn’t have been possible without you guys.

My now husband (!) and I hired Juliet Douglas of Green Orchid Events at the very beginning of our planning process, and I’m very happy we did!
We planned our Vegas wedding from afar, and knew we wanted someone who could help us from the start. Juliet is super organized, extremely fast with her responses (often responding to my emails within minutes!), and very thorough — definitely the type of person you want helping you with wedding planning!
She arranged site visits at several large hotels so that we were able to quickly and efficiently decide on a venue in one day! I spoke to many vendors on my own, before hiring her, who knew her. She is well established in the wedding biz in Vegas!
Throughout the planning process she was always happy to respond to my (very frequent, often lengthy) emails, and was happy to make suggestions. Knowing how familiar she is with wedding vendors in Vegas, I trusted her to refer me to the best vendors in each category, which made booking all of our main vendors super easy! She tried to pass along her vendor discounts when possible which was much appreciated!
She brought THREE assistants with her on the day of the wedding and all of them (Angelica, Katherine, Shanna) were super friendly and super helpful. Katherine stayed with me every step of the way on the wedding day, making sure I had everything I needed and even cleaning my dress when it got dirty!
I really debated about whether to hire a planner after we got engaged, but I would highly recommend it! And I would definitely recommend hiring a planner immediately, at the start of the planning process, as opposed to just day-of, especially if you are planning from afar, as we did. I would also recommend you hire Juliet Douglas from Green Orchid Events! She made the entire wedding planning process quite easy, and helped keep us organized and on track the whole time.
Thank you Juliet, for helping to make our wedding hands down, one of the best days of our lives!!!

Juliet Douglas and Green Orchid Events supported us 125% on the day of our wedding. They were there to help us (the groom and me) feel comfortable and prepared, both before and during our wedding event. Juliet was extremely supportive of me in the months leading up to wedding, with extremely timely e-mail and voice responses, and she provided all types of advice and consultative services as I questioned ‘what to do / when to use which’ along the way. She recommended fabulous DJ, Photo, Make up and Floral Services, and endorsed other Westin-recommended Services with whom she had previously worked (Officiant, Wedding Harpist Entertainment) whose personnel were very professional and very nice and listened and responded to our needs. So she was fabulous and she had fabulous connections.

Angelica and Juliet are amazing people and wedding coordinators. I can’t express to them enough how much I appreciate everything they have done for me and our wedding. Our wedding day was seamless and easy because I knew they would handle everything. We were pressed for time to set up at the venue and they were coordinating a wedding in an unfamiliar state but they remained calm and professional throughout the entire process. The day flew by and it was amazing! We also worked together with vendor recommendations, transportation companies, hair & makeup teams, etc. Angelica and Juliet referred me to friends or companies they had worked with previously and that they trusted.
Wherever you choose to get married, a planner is a must. I would suggest Green Orchid Events every time whether you are getting married in Las Vegas or elsewhere. They are great at what they do and can assist you with your entire planning process.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for your expertise, friendliness, and execution of our wedding!

Go hire Angelica the minute you find out you’re married. This woman is a godsend for any couple planning their wedding. If I could put more stars for responsiveness and flexibility I would. My wedding day wouldn’t have been so special and so perfect if it wasn’t for this woman and her amazing staff.
Angelica was with us from beginning to end and answered and and all questions we had along the way. While she maintained such a professional quality, she also became our friend and made it so easy to talk to her about stuff we were unsure about or wanted an opinion on.
We live in San Diego and decided to have a Vegas wedding. Having Angelica made it so easy. I remember waking up the day of our wedding with no real worries because I knew everything was going to be taken care of. She found us every vendor we needed and stayed on constant contact with them especially the days leading up to our big day. She called all the vendors, set up meeting, scheduled tastings, confirmed orders, double confirmed orders, helped me stay on top of payments, managed a budget, and even went out of her way to find sparklers just days before our wedding because I said it would be nice to have them for our grand exit.
I can’t say enough about her. SHE IS THE PERFECT WEDDING PLANNER.
Crystal and Steve, August 26, 2011, Siena Golf Club
I wanted to thank you for sending me Angelica to help with my wedding planning. It all took place just over a week ago and she made sure it was absolutely perfect. She has been proactive all the way through the process, patient and helpful. It was a small and pretty simple wedding but she made us feel like it was huge and important.
The vendors she suggested were amazing and the day itself went completely without a hitch (well almost and the changes were only for the better). I could just focus on enjoying it all – which I really did.
Thank you, Anya

Deciding to use Juliet and Green Orchid Events was the BEST decision and purchase I made for my wedding! We’re from Connecticut and decided to do a destination wedding in Vegas, and Juliet made the whole process so easy. She helped me choose the perfect vendors, knew what kind of vision I had for my wedding, and she was ALWAYS on top of things. Juliet was extremely responsive, replying to my emails practically within seconds of me sending them. On my wedding day, Juliet and her team made everything flow seamlessly. I was so calm and stress-free because I knew they were working so hard to make sure everything was in place. All of our guests keep telling us our wedding was the most beautiful and best wedding they’d ever been to! I could keep going forever, but I think you get the idea! Thank you so much Juliet and Green Orchid Events!
Kristine & JJ, April 16, 2011, JW Marriott Las Vegas
Just a quick thank you on this very tired day…you have been nothing but a consummate professional and you were absolutely amazing last night. We trusted you with the night and it turned out fabulously.
Angie Steinmetz and Rob Roseman, April 16, 2011 at Aliante
Angelica was super, and I don’t even want to imagine how stressed out I would have been if I didn’t have a day of coordinator. The whole staff at Green Orchid Events was great. It made life easier on not just me, but my mom and whole family.
Maria & Rob, March 19, 2011, Foundation Room & DragonRidge Country Club
Hi Angelica, I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything you did for us and I’m so sorry I didn’t get the chance to tell you before we left. You were amazing during the entire planning process and I can not thank you enough for giving me the little wedding of my dreams. You are so professional and so fun at the same time, and extremely good at what you do. If we ever come back to renew our vows or randomly plan some kind of event, we are definitely looking you up. I want nobody else to plan my event with me. Thank you so much again!!!!
Love always, Chance, Lili, Bob, Alaska, and James Dean Rupp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As a busy bride, Green Orchid Events, kept me on track and to a scheduled time line. The week of my wedding was so relaxed and special and I owe it all to Juliet and her crew.
Kelly and John, December 11, 2010, Red Rock Casino
We worked with Green Orchid for coordination of our 10/9/10 wedding at Maggiano’s and highly recommend them!
Angelica coordinated our reception from beginning to end. Being an out of town bride & because I had most of the major details worked out, I just felt that we really needed some peace of mind in having somebody designated at our reception to ensure the room was set-up as we had hoped and that everything moved along on schedule and smoothly. My contact with Angelica began 1 month prior to my wedding and immediately contacted all of our vendors as soon as she received their info from me. She arrived to my hotel room the day of the wedding to collect all of the reception items and she and her assistant were waiting for us upon our arrival to offer us a drink and get us lined up for our entrance. At the end of the night, all of our items/keepsakes were given to the person I had designated to Angelica weeks prior.
Overall, this was one of the best decisions we made. Choosing Green Orchid to coordinate our reception offered peace of mind to a nervous out of town bride (and groom!). We would HIGHLY recommend them for any event!
Maura and Greg, October 9, 2010 at Maggiano’s Little Italy
Can’t say thank you enough to Angelica McDonnell and the amazing team at Green Orchid for making my wedding day FABULOUS! You guys are wonderful!
I was one of those people who thought I could do it all myself, but I am so glad I hired Green Orchid – all the big and little things that they took care of saved me a great deal of time and stress. Angelica and her team were so great to work with. She returned emails and phone calls quickly and kept me on track with all the little details that needed to be done right up through the wedding. I went into my wedding feeling very confident that everything would be handled professionally and smoothly and was not disappointed. From coordinating all of our vendors together to making sure everything was set up at the church and reception to making sure I got everything back at the end of the night, Angelica was there so that I could sit back and enjoy my special day – it really made a HUGE difference!
Karena and Tom, August 21, 2010 at Maggiano’s Little Italy
Thank you for all of your help. We couldn’t do it without you. You helped make this day extra special!
Ruben and Rachelle, May 22, 2010 at Siena Golf Club
Dear Juliet, Angelica, Shanna and Beth,
We cannot thank you enough for all the guidance you gave us, and for making the wedding run so smoothly. I so appreciated how you made it possible for us to really ENJOY the festivities of the wedding.
The wedding will forever be etched in our memories, and trust that all of you will be part of that happy memory!
A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL!
Marissa, Mother of the bride, May 1, 2010 at DragonRidge Country Club
We just wanted to THANK YOU and your entire team for all your help on our wedding day (and leading up to it!). It was truly PERFECT, and you guys certainly had a lot to do with it!
We are all still on Cloud 9 from last weekend. I was so happy that the day went so smoothly, and that my parents kicked back & enjoyed the ride. We could not have made such a beautiful occasion for our families without you.
We have a more “formal” thank you headed your way, but I just wanted to send a quick email letting you know that we are so grateful to you and Angelica, Beth & Shana for all your hard work and dedication to this wedding. Needless to say, it was the BEST!
Thanks so much!
Angie & Steve Donabauer, May 1, 2010 at DragonRidge Country Club
Angelica McDonnell & Green Orchid Events,
Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding as perfect as it was! Seriously, it was beautiful and so amazing! Angelica you were great!

Juliet was amazing. Everyone I know was worried that I would become a crazy brideszilla during this process, but Juliet prevented this from happening. She handled every detail of our destination wedding, even some details that probably weren’t a part of our package. She was so responsive to my every need, often responding to my emails seconds after I pressed send. She helped me to form my vision of the perfect wedding day and then make it happen. The vendors she assisted us in selecting were wonderful and I never would have been able to find them without her. She even put up with several drunken groomsmen with class and understanding. Juliet and her assistant were able to make all our dreams for our day come true. I was lucky to be a Green Orchid Events bride!
Kate & Ge, October 23, 2009 at Red Rock Resort, Casino, and Spa
Thanks for everything that you have done for us. Everything was out of this world. You are truly a special person with a great gift. Thanks for everything.
Sheilanta & Jermaine, May 16, 2009 at Cili at Bali Hai Golf Club
Juliet has many strengths as a person and a planner. She is passionate about what she does, professional, organized, diligent, levelheaded, a realist, honest, and a bride’s advocate. I was one of the brides and actually one of those people who have a hard time speaking up for what I really want. Juliet was there to speak up for me. I believe this is a wonderful strength for those who need it. Juliet truly made the wedding and reception flow. She tried to keep with the timeline as best she could due to my tardiness. One of the things I was really worried about when I realized I was going to be very late was whether or not we were going to be able to do all of the things that we planned such as the ride on the yacht and the gondola. Juliet made it so all of these things could still happen. And again, these are some of the things that made the day unforgettable!
Donya and Robert, June 6, 2009 at Reflection Bay, Lake Las Vegas
Thank you so very much for making the ENTIRE weekend such a success! Absolutely everyone is complimenting the entire affair and there is absolutely no way we could have done it without you. Not only did you take such amazing care of us and work hard to make this weekend a success, but you brought Adam (Adam Trujillo of Imagine Photography) into our lives as well. You truly went above and beyond and we are both so grateful for all you did!
I wish you much success in wedding planning! I am going back to my corporate event planning!
Aeden & Kristine Babish, Senior Event Manager for Marriott International in Los Angeles, September 2009
Thank you for being incredibly detail-oriented and making sure our wedding went off without a hitch! Many thanks!
David & Diana, August 29, 2009 at Red Rock Resort, Casino, and Spa
I would highly recommend hiring Juliet Douglas of Green Orchid Events to plan your event. Extremely detail oriented, personable, and efficient, she will work hard at making your event a success. Once she secured a venue for our dream wedding, she proceeded to interview several photographers, videographers, florist, djs, etc in order to help us narrow down our choices. She wrote out a detailed timeline for the day of the wedding and made sure every vendor received an accurate timeline. The best part of it is her wonderful personality and great attitude. She was the main reason our dream wedding became a reality!
Jennifer S., December 1, 2007 at Anthem Country Club
Juliet – Thank you so much for all of your help in planning our wedding. Everything turned out perfectly and it made our day great! We had a great experience and would happily recommend you very highly. Again, thanks to you and your team for a wonderful wedding day! Sincerely, Sarah and Geoffrey
Sarah & Geoffrey, April 25, 2009 at Wynn Wedding Salons & Maggiano’s Little Italy
Juliet was extremely available throughout the process. Juliet is great at answering questions and e-mails in a timely fashion. I thought that the different ideas that came up along the way were invaluable. I think confirming with vendors and making sure vendors were there on time was invaluable. I was happy not to think about making sure vendors were doing what they were supposed to do.
Robyn P., June 15, 2008, Loews Lake Las Vegas
Looking back at all the important decisions we made in preparation to our big day, I have concluded that our Wedding Planner was the most crucial. We could not have asked for any better guidance and assistance than Juliet! Very organized, professional, knowledgable and understanding of our wants and needs! Our wedding could not have been any more perfect without her! Thank you!
I have no doubt in my mind, that had I you to collaborate with on ALL of my ideas, and to work with you on each thought I had in mind, you would have taken my wedding to the next level. Everything you touch turns to perfection and ease. Because I am a creative, resourceful person, an artist, who is proud of her visions, I can say that if I had you to collaborate with, someone who understands the industry side of weddings and also understands the coming together of a vision, I know my wedding would have been a flawless production without a single drop lost of the creative, heartfelt, warm, authentic, idiosyncratic aura of which holds the individual character of one’s wedding. It really was the happiest day of my life, as they say.
Lauren Rische (“Day Of” Coordination)
During the events with which I have been involved, I have always known Juliet to be both an excellent advocate for her brides and highly determined to exceed their expectations. Juliet’s pre-planning skills, resourcefulness, and overall pleasant demeanor make her an excellent selection when choosing an event/wedding planner. – James Filtz, Catering Manager, Loews Lake Las Vegas
Juliet: We are so very grateful you were with us today. Thanks so much for being ready, willing & so ABLE to deal with all the details that made this day perfect. Our sincere appreciation & thanks for absolutely everything!
Jennifer & Alex D.
I just wanted to write a short note to express my appreciation for all of your work in planning and coordinating my wedding. Your organization, conscientiousness, and attentiveness really helped everything flow smoothly and helped to alleviate some of my stress. I will definitely recommend your services in the future. Thank you so much!
Monica and Morrell Daggs, April 14, 2007 at Monte Carlo Hotel & Casino
A lot of people commented on how organized you were and how it was so good that you were there. Even Morrell said that you had a very calming spirit. Even when we were struggling with my bustle, you took things in stride…
Thank you so much for all the help you have extended to us to make our 25th wedding anniversary memorable…
Ed & Marissa
