The Bob Gail team is exactly who you want planning your wedding. They are so experienced and so capable, you definitely want them on your team as you navigate the world of vendors and details and timelines. They are SO on top of every last detail and are so prepared that they take all the anxiety and worrying out of the process, so you can truly relax, let go and just enjoy the experience on your wedding day. In addition to being professional and efficient, they are also just a joy to be around and to work with. It was sad to say goodbye to them at the end of the process because we so enjoyed all of our time working with them! More...

Bob and his team went above and beyond to help me bring my "winter wonderland" theme company holiday party to life. We had beautiful, wintery scenes throughout our building, unique glowing cocktail and dining tables and awesome yard decorations on our patios. The company holiday party was a huge success and beautiful success due to their decor. Additionally the crew was extremely helpful, quick and respective of my timing and strict schedule. five stars or more for sure! More...

We couldn't be happier with Bob Gail Special Events. We rented several large art deco props for our holiday party, and they were a hit. From the quality and detail of their props, to the professionalism of the entire staff, it was a great experience. In fact, our facilities manager said this vendor was one of the most organized, efficient and professional he'd ever worked with while at our company. More...

I contacted three different LA vendors for an event and none of them were able to meet our visual and guest ambiance requests, timeframe, or budget. Luckily, Bob Levine and his team were able to put something together that exceeded expectations. Additionally, he took the time to physically scope out the venue and communicated updates directly to myself and my team because we could not be at the venue during the planning phase. He served as our eyes and ears. The guests of the event had a great time and sent praise almost immediately after the event. It was a very positive experience and I highly recommend working with them. More...

When looking for props, Bob Gail Special Events is the place to go for corporate as well as social events. Working with the team was so easy, they transformed a dingy, dark room into a beautiful winter wonderland.The event I really liked was an event for sick children, using Bob Gail's props for the children brought BIG Smiles to the children faces and tears to my eyes. Each time we have referred them to our customers they have been efficient and true industry professionals.They are always on time and to date they have never disappointed any of our customers. They are the best when it comes to transforming any area into a beautiful room or space.I will continue to  recommend Bob Gail to anyone that is doing a theme party and have a need for props.They can also recommend entertainment options for your event as well.I am always proud when Bob Gail is used to do an event that I have recommend their services.

I booked Higher Ground by Bob Gail for my wedding reception, and I could not say enough positive things about the band as well as Brian and Giovanna. The band is not only talented and charismatic, but it also does a great job reading the crowd. Scott, the band leader, is a great emcee. A few highlights/anecdotes if you'll indulge me:

-Even during the dinner portion of the evening, couples were dancing when they were supposed to be eating - one told us it was the first time they had danced in 30 years.
-A few weeks before the wedding I needed a steel drummer for the cocktail hour and Brian was able to secure one who was amazing and for a reasonable cost.
-Higher Ground is booked through a company that also does wedding planning - because of this, they are very skilled with the run of show, dealing with brides and sensitive matters, and overall running a great wedding.

I wish I could see them live again, so I will be referring them to everyone I know. Thank you Brian, Scott, Giovanna and the rest of the band for a fabulous evening!

I have been using Bob Gail special events for as long as I can remember. A corporate party, a casino night, holiday parties, you name it they have always come through with the best planning ever. There were times I had the ideas and simply needed the supplies and they were great enough to give me even more insight and recommendations. There were other events that i needed the whole shebang and what amazingness they provided. You just won't find a better events company out there and once you work with them once they will immediately become your GO TO party provider. Thanks for sooo many wonderful years! More...

We used Bob Gail Events (their band Jump Start) as well as their DJ for my 300+ person wedding in San Diego, and they was absolutely AMAZING! We had many wedding guests come up to us after to tell us how great the band was and how that was the best band they had ever seen. They were professional, great to work with, and kept the party going on all night. They have a wide variety of music and genres that they can play, and were able to read the crowd perfectly for music selection, and had such good energy the entire time. We were so sad to see them leave at midnight! We primarily worked with Brian in coordinating many of the details prior to the wedding, and he was an absolute pleasure to work with. I would 1000% recommend this band (and DJ Scott Levine) for a special event, and we hope to have the opportunity to work with them again at some future event!!! More...

We have been using Bob Gail Special Events for several years now, and they are always great! Their props are top quality, and make a great statement, whatever theme we are dealing with. Aside from great props, their staff and onsite crews are thorough and seem to care about your installation - going into the final details of the install. Bob Levine is great and can help with ideas; the crew are kind and thoughtful and very professional. We recommend all of them very highly! More...

There are many vendors to choose from in LA when planning an event and if you have never worked with them, how do you know what you are getting in to before you work with them? Referrals like this. Bob is one of the easiest and most accommodating vendors I have worked with. They are flexible, responsive, professional and have a wonderful demeanor. Beyond that, you get exactly what you expect from their inventory. No surprises. Things show up exactly as they appear in their photos. True professionals but beyond that, amazing people! More...

Bob Gail Special Events band, Jump Start was absolutely one of the best parts of our wedding! When we were deciding between bands to use, we loved the range of talent and vocals that Jump Start showcased. We had a unique song we wanted arranged for our first dance which they were able to compose and played perfectly on the day. The band leader, Brian was so thoughtful, helpful, and easily accessible when we needed to reach him. We also had a pretty specific "Do Not" and "Please Play" song list which they not only followed but wowed us with every song they played. Our dance floor was full the entire wedding and everyone was dancing! We had the best time and have Bob Gail and Jump Start to thank for that! More...

We booked Higher Ground for our daughter's wedding. Brian was so easy to work with, helpful, patient with all our questions etc. Scott and his musicians were awesome. Everyone had the most awesome time at our event. The dance floor was full until the last song. I would definitely recommend them hands down. I also used them for the ceremony (keyboard and saxophone/flute). They are professional, lovely people. They are worth every penny! More...

We had an event with a Hollywood theme and the props from Bob Gail made the event! The decor they provided elevated the feel of the event and helped convey the theme to all of the attendees. It really felt like you were a celebrity walking the red carpet into a true Hollywood party! Thanks to Bob Gail, we had giant posters of old Hollywood movies that were eye-catching and fun for guests to pose with and look at as they enjoyed the event. More...

Allyson Levine Joseph was our main wedding planner for our wedding.  Allyson is one of the best in the business.  Her parents (Bob & Gail) started the company, which also has a fantastic music component of the business.  We actually used one of their bands, Higher Ground, as our band wedding and they were fantastic.  Allyson has strong relationships with the best wedding vendors in the area.  Most importantly, she was able to get a sense for our vision and translate them into the best options in terms of style and colors as well as which vendors would be a good match.  Allyson goes above and beyond and she was always a phone call or email away.  Before we hired her, I had an initial call with her and she followed up with me to offer advice as we were looking for and evaluating wedding venues.  That willingness to provide her advice made her stand out to us vs. other wedding planners.  Allyson and her team are Type A (like us) and we knew we could count on them to get things done in a timely manner.  They kept us on our toes and engaged with us to make every decision along the way to ensure we were hitting our fast-moving timeline.  With our full-time jobs it would have been impossible for us to plan our wedding ourselves along with our demanding schedules so it was a godsend to rely on Allyson and her team to take care of everything that we didn't have to worry about.  They did everything from meeting with vendors to stuffing and sending out our invitations to purchasing and putting together items for our welcome bags.  The Bob Gail team on the day of the wedding was extremely impressive.  They were in communication with each other at every minute of the day, were available at any point that we needed them, rallied our friends and family together at the scheduled times and made sure that the wedding was seamlessly executed and managed.  We were really pleased with Allyson and the Bob Gail team and most importantly our wedding was absolute perfection thanks to them!

We had a great experience working with Bob Gail Special Events in September 2016. We were in need of some large, fun props for a special event in Henderson, NV. Despite our request being super last-minute, Bob Gail was able to accommodate our every request; they even were able to custom build and print beautiful signage for us. We would definitely work with Bob Gail Special Events again the next time we're in town. Their inventory and capabilities are limitless, and their team is responsive and experienced in providing excellent customer service! More...

We booked "Jump Start" for our wedding and we can not recommend enough! We worked with Brian Pincus, who was an absolutely delight from day one. We LOVED working with him. He's so professional, easy and just an all around great guy. As for the band, amazing! Truly one of the highlights from our wedding. Our guests all RAVED about the the band. The singers and musicians were top notch and the songs they played had our guests dancing all night. Truly, the dance floor was packed the entire night. We were married in Santa Barbara, but most guests were from NY/NJ (where my husband and I grew up) and they played so many great Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi songs that had our guests going wild. They of course were also able to play all the classic romantic songs like "At Last" and " Best Thing." I've had three guests already ask for the band's info so they can share with other friends for upcoming weddings. If that isn't the greatest confirmation of an incredible band I dont know what is!

We used the band Jump Start through Bob Gail Entertainment for our wedding in August 2015 and had a fantastic experience. Brian Pincus was our point person from the beginning of the process and our band leader. From beginning to end, he was extremely helpful, responsive, and always seemed to be on the same page as we were regarding the flow and feel we wanted. We looked at a couple of other bands and chose Jump Start for a few reasons: -We had seen Jump Start at our friends' wedding ~3-4 years prior and remembered how great they were, even though it had been several years -Huge song list - much more extensive than some of the other bands we looked at -Brian immediately came off as trustworthy, accommodating, and easy to work with In addition to the wedding reception, we also used 3 band members for our ceremony music, and Brian also worked with us on very short notice to arrange for one of the band members to play at our cocktail hour. The reception was amazing. All of the band members are fantastic entertainers, professionals, and it is clear they can read a crowd. We met ~4-6 weeks before the wedding and talked about the flow we wanted (dancing in between courses, etc) which was very important to us. Brian suggested all of the same things we were thinking and after that meeting, we felt completely at ease. We had ~220 guests, and everyone was on the dance floor the entire time - both our friends (20s and 30s) and our parents' friends (50s and 60s). We requested to minimize the number of slower songs so it was all very upbeat and high energy. My husband was supposed to speak later in the night, but we were loving the band so much that we ended up skipping his speech so we didn't have to stop the music! We had the best time, no complaints, and could not recommend Jump Start more. More...

Bob Gail Events was very easy to work with. They take good care of their furniture. The white furniture they brought looked great in the space. They set it up how we wanted it and in a timely manner. The LED spandex highboys were my favorite piece. The client loved it. We would definitely use them again. More...

2015 was the 40th anniversary of my company and we decided to throw a gala for 500 peeps. So being that this was going to be much larger than our normal yearly holiday parties we hired Bob Gail Events to help us out. I had the pleasure of working with Allyson Levine & Katie Pincus. After brainstorming with the girls, myself, The Big Kahuna & another top dog with came up with a very cool, elegant vibe along with a retro travel experience to 1975 at the Beverly Hills Hotel. The event looked gorgeous and they were all very professional throughout the entire 10 month planning experience. My personal biggest concerns were having the event not look like your typical hotel ballroom which included hiding the massive ornate chandelier in their main ballroom, enough purple throughout (our company color) and a hip dance floor area amongst  other things not needed to be mentioned here. The event space looked AWESOME and ran smoothly. I'd love to plan something else with these gals! More...

I worked with Katie Pincus and the Bob Gail team for my wedding, and they were amazing.  From the first time we met and explained the vision for our wedding, I felt that they got it - and they didn't disappoint throughout the planning process.  Katie introduced us to some amazing vendors, and was also very open to some that I found on my own - and what came together was the day of my dreams that perfectly executed my vision.  In the last couple of weeks and on my wedding day, Katie and her team fully took over, and I was truly able to relax and enjoy the day with my family and friends.  They quietly handled the inevitable issues that arose - and only consulted me on a few necessary items.  I've heard from many brides that they didn't eat and don't truly remember the day, but that wasn't the case for us.  Thanks to Katie and her team for making our wedding day a dream that we were actually able to fully enjoy and remember.

I can not say enough about Katie Pincus and the Bob Gail staff. When I was searching for a wedding planner, I didn't realize just how important she would be because it's something that is behind the scenes. Now that I am married, I can honestly say that Katie made our wedding and was absolutely worth every penny, if not more.

Not only was she and her team insanely organized but she was patient, thoughtful, had great ideas, gave us many options, was great with my parents, knew her shit and is just all around an awesome person.

I would absolutely work with Bob Gail for the next event i plan.

I booked Jump Start through Bob Gail as my band at my wedding. Every phone call and conversation I've had with my guests recapping the evening has included a rave review about our band. Their song choices perfectly fit the energy of the room and all age groups were able to dance and sing along. They were able to cover such a wide variety of song choices and there seemed to be a singer in the band for every type of genre (even country). There is something about the energy a band brings versus a DJ that just really gets a crowd going and eager to dance.Brian was so wonderful to work with. He was patient, engaged and invested in the night. It made a huge difference having him there keeping our timeline on track and changing things as needed based on the mood of the room. Additionally, he acted like a therapist and a band leader, helping me personally navigate through the chaos of the day.  The whole process of working with Bob Gail was seamless. They sent my husband and I a long list of songs to choose from before our wedding and even learned a couple of songs that we requested that were not part of their set list.  Jump Start was one of the more expensive ticket items in our wedding, but worth every penny!

Brian and the whole Jumpstart band were absolutely incredible! They made our party!! Everyone was on the dance floor the whole night, and when the lights came on at the end of the night, everyone was shouting, "One more song!" I Couldn't have asked for more from this incredible band. From their song selections, to their voices and musical talent, they sure do know how to get a party on their feet and stay there all night long! More...

Well I am not sure if I am reviewing the right business but the guy singing gave me his card that said Bob Gail events so here it goes. I attended local San Diego Google event and he played and sang during the event. He also had a sidekick that played harmonica. They were really amazing. The singer has a really great voice. Wish i found out more about them since looking up Bob Gail events only comes up with wedding planner info More...

Since the majority of my friends and family live in CA , it only made sense that I would want to celebrate my birthday in my home city. However, because I don't currently live on the east coast, it was logistically tough for me to coordinate such a large scale birthday party. I also haven't partied in the city for a while, so I didn't know where the hot spots were anymore. Bob Gail Special Events Los Angeles was recommended to me by a friend, and I am very glad that I used their service. Josh was extremely professional, helpful, and honest about the pros and cons of each venue for the specific requests of my party. We ended up getting a 2 tables at Hudson Terrace for 50+ people, and everyone had a blast. No worries at all!Thanks staff and Bob Gail Special Events Los Angeles for a great time! More...

Hi highly recommend using Bob Gail Special Events Los Angeles. I contacted them at approx 8am the morning of the day I wanted to have my birthday. I received a prompt response from josh and he was extremely helpful. Asked what kind of venue I was looking for a provided me with different venues and price lists. It was painless and extremely convenient working with Staff. He was AMAZING in setting everything up I had everything confirmed within an hour of working with him. Me and my guest had a great time at monarch rooftop very classy but not stuck up with a beautiful view of the Empire State Building it was so close you felt like it was in arms reach. To top it all off he was able to arrange for a free bottle and no maximum amount of people that could come. I will be recommending this service to all of my friends and definitely use them for my bday next year too. Thanks josh!!! More...

My experience with Bob Gail was so absolutely fantastic that it was one of the saddest parts about closing the book on our wedding. I walked in and met Allyson and Brian over a year ago after countless meetings with other planners. I knew within the first 5 minutes of meeting them why people say "save the best for last". They got it! Every last detail of what we wanted. Matt and I didn't just want some beautiful linens and pretty flowers on some tables. We came in asking for replicas of "Candy Land", a lot of glam, and ultimately we wanted the party of the year. Our wedding was Oct 18th, 2013 and when I tell you that they nailed it on the head, that statement doesn't even do it justice. I worked with Allyson the most, who truly became like a sister and a forever friend throughout this process. She was there no matter what and worked out every last detail with her heart in all of it. My favorite part of working with them was that you got a chance to work with everyone. Katie, Kay, Linley, Katherine (who is the best event designer on planet earth), and every other employee at Bob Gail stepped up at one point or another and made everything go right. They worked with us through and through and gave us the chance to enjoy a planning process that can ultimately be very stressful. I believe they are the best in the biz and a true family that became part of our own. We love these guys and will always remember what they did for us and forever be grateful!! - Nicole & Matt More...

Bob Gail Special Events is amazing!! This review is for Jump Start the band and for Brian Pincus who helped us make our dream wedding possible. I had seen Jump Start play at my cousins wedding 8 years ago and remember saying to myself..this is the band I want for my wedding! Now all this time had passed and yet my wish was still able to come true. Brian made sure we had the singers we wanted and helped us figure out how many people we wanted in the band and what we could afford. ( We ended up getting a 7 piece band with 2 singers and then Brian came as the 8th member!) He even worked with us on price which helped us a lot. Even though we went above our budget in the end I can't tell you how much I feel like this band was worth it. Brian was patient and kind and talked to many members in my family to assure them that everything would be taken care of and turn out great. They even learned two songs for us not on their play list and did them each perfectly!! Brian ended up coming to the wedding as our band leader and mc and made the night up beat, fun, and so memorable. It was nice to feel like the person at the head of the night really knew what we wanted and took the time to know us as a couple. Since the wedding, our guests cannot stop raving about the band and how much fun they made the night. Our wedding was on a Sunday and went til midnight ( I was so worried people would leave early ) but instead the dance floor was packed until the last song and guest were screaming for one more!! My best friend (who loves pop and rap music) said she never wants to go to a party with a dj again..she loved the band. I highly recommend this band and this company ( at least for music) and you won't regret using them. Make sure to ask for Brian Pincus!! More...

I cannot thank Allyson Levine and Bob Gail Rentals enough for the beautiful wedding they created for us. I work in the industry so I'm familiar with rental companies and how quickly it can add up for a few couches and chairs. However, after meeting with Allyson I knew that Bob Gail would be able to give us the design concept we wanted with the budget we wanted. Allyson's eye for design was incredible! From the linens to the furniture her touches really made our wedding spectacular. Plus she was super flexible when things started adding up and she would always send me updated budgets and revised quotes whenever I asked. She would always have a couple different priced options that I could choose from and was never pushy on the upsale, if I said I couldn't afford something then she would try and find a way to create the same look for less.

I cannot thank Allyson Levine and Bob Gail Rentals enough for the beautiful wedding they created for us. I work in the industry so I'm familiar with rental companies and how quickly it can add up for a few couches and chairs. However, after meeting with Allyson I knew that Bob Gail would be able to give us the design concept we wanted with the budget we wanted. Allyson's eye for design was incredible! From the linens to the furniture her touches really made our wedding spectacular. Plus she was super flexible when things started adding up and she would always send me updated budgets and revised quotes whenever I asked. She would always have a couple different priced options that I could choose from and was never pushy on the upsale, if I said I couldn't afford something then she would try and find a way to create the same look for less. And her team was wonderful with the set up and tear down. All in all Bob Gail really made our wedding what it was, and what is was was impressive from all the compliments we received at the reception.

My experience with Bob Gail was so absolutely fantastic that it was one of the saddest parts about closing the book on our wedding. I walked in and met Allyson and Brian over a year ago after countless meetings with other planners. I knew within the first 5 minutes of meeting them why people say "save the best for last". They got it! Every last detail of what we wanted. Matt and I didn't just want some beautiful linens and pretty flowers on some tables. We came in asking for replicas of "Candy Land", a lot of glam, and ultimately we wanted the party of the year. Our wedding was Oct 18th, 2013 and when I tell you that they nailed it on the head, that statement doesn't even do it justice. I worked with Allyson the most, who truly became like a sister and a forever friend throughout this process. She was there no matter what and worked out every last detail with her heart in all of it. My favorite part of working with them was that you got a chance to work with everyone. Katie, Kay, Linley, Katherine (who is the best event designer on planet earth), and every other employee at Bob Gail stepped up at one point or another and made everything go right. They worked with us through and through and gave us the chance to enjoy a planning process that can ultimately be very stressful. I believe they are the best in the biz and a true family that became part of our own. We love these guys and will always remember what they did for us and forever be grateful!! More...

We used Bob Gail for three things: the band, the flowers, and the lighting. We got the most compliments from our guests on three things: the band, the flowers, and the photos. While we had a great photographer, I think the lighting made all the difference for our indoor photos, as our venue was very dark and moody. Every indoor photo has beautiful light and ambience. Months later, we are still receiving compliments on the amazing band and a friend recently said she is having the hardest time picking her wedding band because she keeps comparing them to OUR wedding band. I referred her to BG, of course. Brian and Katie are warm, friendly, and an absolute pleasure to work with. My mom fell in love with them about 5 minutes into first meeting them. She said to me later, "You just want to do whatever they suggest because you trust them and know it will be perfect." Kathryn, the florist, NAILED my floral dreams, despite my highly inarticulate description of what I wanted, as I know very little about flowers. During the stressful time of planning my wedding I actually looked forward to meeting with Brian and Katie at BG and left feeling excited. On wedding day, I didn't even have to think about my BG vendors because I felt so confident everything would be executed perfectly, which it was! More...

First, the band was incredible and we received so many complments from our guests. Everyone was up and dancing! They also did the ceremony music and cocktail hour piano. Such talent and professionalism! The flowers were perfect for the venue and Bob Gail worked hard to bring the look we wanted within our budget. The lighting made such a difference!! Made a very beautiful venue a stunning visual. Every meeting we had at BobGail(with Katie) was upbeat and and fun. Highly recommend!!!!! More...

I had an outstanding experience with Bob Gail!!  My daughter just got married and we used Bob Gail for flowers, lighting and the incredible Jump Start Band. We were all 100 per cent satisfied and found them a delight to work with. The band was only the best event band I ever heard and I received much great feedback from my guests who really danced all night. The flowers were beautiful and Bob Gail worked with me to stay in the budget yet still created the look my daughter wanted. The venue looked stunning. Bob Gail also did lighting for the venue and WOW what a great job they did.All our meetings with Katie were upbeat and relaxing and she had so many good ideas. When I mentioned to anyone else involved with the wedding that I was using Bob Gail, they knew right away that things would go well!  Highly recommended!!!! More...

Allyson Levine, Katie Pincus and the Bob Gail team were exceptional in planning, coordinating and executing the wedding of our dreams. We used Bob Gail for event coordination, the band (Jump Start), ceremony music, florals, lighting and decor and event rentals. Our wedding was seemless and everything was planned beautifully to the last detail. The Bob Gail band, "Jump Start" was amazing and had our party going until 1 am. The florals and decor were breathtaking. When my now husband and I first saw our cerermony and reception spaces, we felt like we had walked into a magazine style shoot. Everything was perfectly done and nothing was over the top. Because our ceremony and reception were executed perfectly by Allyson and Katie, our guests truly were able to enjoy every moment of the evening and my husband and I were able to relax and enjoy this amazing moment in our lives with our family and friends. All of our wedding guests raved about every detail. Allyson and Katie are two of the nicest people I have had the pleasure of meeting and their grace, poise and exquisite style truly show through in their event design and coordination. I couldn't reccommend these two ladies, Jump Start, the Bob Gail florists, and entire team enough! More...

The Bob Gail team made my wedding reception beautiful. What started as a basic clear tent on the beach turned into a classy party space with chandeliers, hedges, stunning florals and gorgeous lighting, all thanks to Bob Gail. They also pulled in little details I hadn't thought about like matching linens and coordinating candles. The cost of the decor was more than I initially expected to spend, but it was all worth it. Katie, Allyson and Michelle were all a pleasure to work with and they made the planning process enjoyable! More...

Working with Bob Gail Events was great and I would recommend them to anyone. They're very professional yet friendly, accommodating, and flexible.

Since we both work somewhat demanding hours, the best thing about Bob Gail was they would meet us after standard working hours. I was continually frustrated by how many wedding vendors would not do this. That was priceless for us. It was also really great that they can be one-stop-shopping for a lot of the details that 2 busy working people can't spend a ton of time researching.

Katie was our coordinator and she was fantastic. She had a ton of experience with our venue, which was very helpful. All of the additional services we used we're amazing, perfect, and beautiful: ceremony musicians, chairs, lighting. But the flowers were the best part. Our colors and style were not standard and they did a great job on the flowers.

Jamie (my husband) and I had the wedding of our dreams and that was solely because of the Ally Levine and Bob Gail Events.

Some photos of our event can be seen here: http://www.bobgail.com/photo_gallery/recent_weddings/sls_hotel_-_photos_by_callaway_gable/30683

We gave Ally a color palette, told her we wanted skee-ball, and a fun wedding and the rest was all Ally and her team.
We really only had a few things that we said we didn't want and put all the pressure on Ally and her team to deliver based on that.

They truly exceeded our wildest imagination and that was the point…hire the best and let them do their best!

I think an important thing to note is part of the reason that the photos look so amazing was all the details that Ally and her team included, without them it would not have been the same photos.

Don’t take my word for it…here are some comments from our guests:

Fantastic----all the creativity, love, beauty, fun, and joy captured forever ! I FEEL IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've Never seen a better way to truly capture the essence of the event !!!!!!!!!!
These photos are fantastic. My daughter just got married in April and wish we had your photographer!
The wedding photos are awesome!!!
Honestly we had the best time. It was so fun and comfortable
Not a thing missed! love was felt throughout the night!
The wedding was EPIC, with pictures to match!
WE LOVED THE PICTURES. What a great photographer! We so loved the attention to detail.

Bob Gail Events is FANTASTIC! I was living overseas in another country and researched numerous event designers and really liked the look and feel of Bob Gail! Once I reached out, I worked with the same person in the whole 9 months of planning my wedding (Brian Pincus) and he was OUTSTANDING! His service was impeccable and it was so obvious that he truly did care about my wedding. Brian assisted us with a dance floor and flowers for our very special day! We had a budget (like every couple) and there was never a moment where we felt uncomfortable! Brian and his team exceeded every expectation and exceeded our desires! Bob Gail Events stays on top of every detail and calls to confirm and go over every detail. The staff is a joy to work with. I myself am a professional wedding and event planner and am extremely particular with who I work for! Bob Gail Events is first class! Thank you for everything! More...

Bob Gail is amazing! We initially met with them to discuss the music for our wedding, but fell in love with Allyson and Brian and decided use the Bob Gail team for coordination and rentals, as well. The entire wedding planning process was so fun and stress free because of Allyson, Brian, and their team. They put so much care and time into our wedding, and it felt as though they were planning a wedding for a family member. They wedding day was amazing and we didn't have to worry about anything other than what we were there for - to get married! Bob Gail took care of everything. Also, their band is amazing! They had our guests on the dance floor the entire night. We can't recommend Bob Gail enough! They are the best! More...

Bob Gail is THE best company to use for any event.  We chose them for our wedding because they are a one stop shop!  You can get everything through them: theme, flowers, furniture, musicians, EVERYTHING!!!  Why go through the headache of using different vendors?  The entire team was super competent and professional.  Bob Gail is also family owned and run by the family members.  I thought that was so cute!  Allyson was my day of coordinator and I knew everything was going to be taken cared of.  They handled unforeseen events with aplomb.  Like when it suddenly rained in the middle of our cocktail hour (which was outside and there was ZERO chance of rain that day) they quickly ushered guests to the foyer and continued with service there.Honestly if you choose Bob Gail for your special event, you will not be disappointed.  I recommend them to all my friends and family.

My husband and I got married a couple of months ago and worked with Allyson at Bob Gail for the flowers, lighting, linens and other decor at the wedding as well as the candy station. I cannot recommend them enough! Allyson is profession, responsive, really knows the business, and went out of her way to accommodate all of our request to make sure that everything was exactly the way we wanted it. Also, she was an absolute pleasure to work with and has impeccable taste.

We didn't use Allyson as our coordinator but after working with her, I would highly recommend her for that position. She is so organized, and she made stressful times much more manageable by always being on top of things.

Everything at our wedding looked amazing and it was largely because of Allyson and her team.

Brides who are looking for someone to help you plan every aspect of your wedding day- design, flowers, linens, music - look no further!
Allyson and the Bob Gail team truly made our big day a spectacular one! What was so fantastic about working with them was the fact that I had the option to use other vendors or work "in-house" with Bob Gail, which is what I chose to do based on all of the fantastic photos and reviews I had seen/heard. Talk about a smart choice, as this made it super easy as I only had one contact to deal with everything! This is a huge win for any bride who has a demanding career and doesn't have the time to do everything herself.
After our first design meeting I knew that my big day was going to be exactly as I'd always imagined it. The team truly understood what we were looking to do and was able to execute it flawlessly - while staying within my budget.
Make the smart choice and meet with Bob Gail before planning your wedding day!

It was high quality, efficient and stress free. Perfect! Thanks guys. More...

Bob Gail Special Events recently helped me out in a BIG WAY with my wedding.  When I became engaged, I had no idea what to do first, &, when anyone asked me what my colors were, I panicked.  I truly had no clue how to be a bride.  After my first meeting with the BG team, I was put at ease.  They were definitely pros that knew how to find my inter-bride.  Before I knew it, I had ideas on how I wanted my special day to look.  And, on my wedding day, I was super-impressed with how the BG team made my ideas come to life. The crown jewel of the company is Allyson Levine.  She knows EVERYTHING about weddings.  She calmly answered my thousands of questions & suggested answers to design questions in a way that matched my personality.  On the day of my wedding, she was the PERFECT wedding coordinator.  She was supportive of my every need & even needs that I didn't know I had! Thanks to Allyson & the Bob Gail team for such a magical day! More...

Use Bob Gail for as many aspects of your party or wedding as you can. Every element of our wedding was seamless and the level of service is unparalleled in this industry. We had our wedding at the Ritz Carlton Marina del Rey and used Bob Gail for almost everything in our wedding - flowers, band (Jump Start), chairs and linens, lighting, candy buffet and day of coordination. We also used the vendors they recommended - Jennifer Roper for photography and William Ernest Brown for invitations. Our friends and family are raving about the wedding and saying it was the best and most fun wedding they've attended. The entire thing went off without a single hitch. We weren't sure of the details, but we wanted to throw a fun party and we achieved that using Bob Gail. The band was amazing and everyone loved them. We danced all night and ended up extending the band play time. We were skeptical about using a band but relied heavily on references that Bob Gail provided. We spoke with numerous brides that had used Jump Start and they were equally as thrilled as we were. We wanted an intimate and elegant setting that was not over the top. We didn't want to over spend on a bunch of ""showy"" elements, but we didn't want to look like we cut corners. The room reflected that. The team at Bob Gail is impressive. My husband and I are laid back but we expected perfection for our money, which is what the team delivered. We basically showed up to the rehearsal on Friday night, at which point they took over and ran everything until 1 am Sunday morning. We thought about nothing but having fun with friends and family. Each member of the team understood our personalities and gave us what we needed. My husband and I are both in professional services and we can't imagine a higher level of service than this team provided. The business model of offering most wedding elements under one house works very well for a wedding because it reduces the stress of worrying about multiple vendors. There's just no reason to look elsewhere or use a coordinator who will pull together a bunch of separate vendors. Loved them. More...

I cannot imagine having planned our wedding with the assistance of anyone other than Bob Gail Special Events. Every single aspect of our wedding turned out even better and more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Living out of state and planning a wedding in California seemed like a daunting task, but with the Bob Gail team everything was almost effortless. We were even able to schedule our table arrangement / flower run through on the Monday of Labor Day weekend to accommodate when we would be in town. Having an in-house team that provided everything from flowers, linens, lighting to musicians made the planning process a dream. I even found myself asking, "what should I be doing?" in the months leading up to our big day because everything was so well organized and planned, that I didn't feel I had enough to do! As a result, my husband and I were truly able to enjoy our engagement. I would, without any hesitation, recommend Bob Gail to anyone planning an event, wedding or otherwise. They were a joy to work with and truly are a first rate team! More...

I was referred to Bob Gail through an acquaintance who was raving about the band she had hired for her wedding!  I am a HUGE music enthusiast and was extremely picky in selecting the music and band for such an important event.  In addition to that, I have a huge family and a large group of friends, all of whom know how to have a good time and expected a good party from my wedding!  It was important to me that the band I had was a fun party band that wasn't annoying and that could read a crowd.  It was also important to me that they could play a variety of music, from good classics to Latin to current popular songs.  Needless to say, the band was FANTASTIC!  I got exactly what I wanted - and more!  The members of the band were extremely talented, professional and most importantly, perfect audience readers...they got everything right!  Bob Gail even had a band coordinator, Allyson, who made sure everything ran smoothly between the bridal party and the band.  Allyson was crucial to the effortless flow of the event and was a HUGE help to myself and our bridal party!  ***BRIDES - she basically functioned as my day-of coordinator and provided the bridal party with the perfect amount of information so we knew what to expect and when - all without being invasive at all!  I am beyond thrilled with my choice in selecting Bob Gail for my entertainment!  I would not only use them for another event but I would refer them - without hesitation - to anyone looking for the perfect party band for their event!  Thank you to the members of Jumpstart, to Allyson Levine, and to everyone at Bob Gail who made our wedding the BEST TIME EVER!  - Natalie and Ryan Carroll More...

I cannot imagine having planned our wedding with the assistance of anyone other than Bob Gail Special Events. Every single aspect of our wedding turned out even better and more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Living out of state and planning a wedding in California seemed like a daunting task, but with the Bob Gail team everything was almost effortless. We were even able to schedule our table arrangement / flower run through on the Monday of Labor Day weekend to accommodate when we would be in town. Having an in-house team that provided everything from flowers, linens, lighting to musicians made the planning process a dream. I even found myself asking, ""what should I be doing?"" in the months leading up to our big day because everything was so well organized and planned, that I didn't feel I had enough to do! As a result, my husband and I were truly able to enjoy our engagement. I would, without any hesitation, recommend Bob Gail to anyone planning an event, wedding or otherwise. They were a joy to work with and truly are a first rate team! More...

Oh my goodness! The people who helped us at Bob Gail Events were so great - thank you, Brian and Katie! They were very responsive and very creative. I had some budget issues and could not do exactly what I wanted, and they worked with me back and forth to create the same feel from what I could afford. They were always encouraging and unstressed. I was so blessed by that because so many things seemed to change at the last minute - guest count, table count and size, flower placement, etc... Up until it was actually the time, they were adapting the final picture with pleasure! I would have been so sick of me! In the end, the place was amazing. The flowers were better than anticipated, and the clean-up was spotless. I wish I could have taken it all home with me!!! If you have any questions about how to do anything, ask... And if you have a need for any service and you cannot find it, ask... We ended up using Bob Gail for so much more than just flowers or chairs. They were a great design team and can do it all!

We used Bob Gail for our wedding but this was my family's second time using Bob Gail for a special event and they do not disappoint.  Are they the cheapest vendor in LA? No. But... will you worry one millisecond about your event? Absolutely not!  Honestly, I think they are an incredible value because the last thing you want to worry about on your wedding day is the vendor being late or not showing up, not providing what you ordered, or being a pain to work with.  Bob Gail is incredibly professional and because they have seen it all they can work with any problem posed and find the perfect solution. On wedding days, problems always pop up and I never caught wind of a thing and everything was seamless!  We used Bob Gail for all of our music (our reception band and ceremony strings), all of our rentals and they were phenomenal!  Brian Pincus is a magic maker... I asked him to supply such a range of products and he came through with every single request. I highly recommend using Bob Gail because they are a dream to work with! More...

Bob Gail did the most stunning work for our wedding last September. Everyone was in awe of how beautiful everything looked. The flowers, tables, menus and all of the decorations were truly amazing. We will not hesitate to recommend Bob Gail's creative staff in the future. We thank them for helping to make our wedding so memorable and for the lovely job that they did. More...

The band that we used for our party were absolutely exceptional. They were fun, entertaining and talented. My first dance, Orange Sky, was memorable and beautiful, a moment I will never forget. I could not have asked for a better night and Bob Gail Special Events contributed to that special memory! More...

We hired Bob Gail Special Events for a simple reason, there was no way we could have this spectacular evening without them! Words cannot describe the gratitude and appreciation for the service that we received from their staff. They took care of every little detail. I will highly recommend Bob Gail for event coordination.

I can't begin to thank Bob Gail enough for our perfect event. The centerpieces were stunning, the escort cards were gorgeous, the light-up tables and ottomons made the lounge area look fabulous . We feel so lucky to have found such a great company to help us with our event. They were delightful, kind and efficient to work with. More...

I thought the arrangements here were...nice. I thought they did a beautiful job at what they did. I guess I was hoping for something different and that's not really what they do. I think for the bride that wants traditional and grand they have just the thing for you. It wasn't my taste but I would recommend them to any bride that was dreaming of a traditional fairytale wedding. More...

Excellent band... I believe we got the "Players" (they have many bands under their organization). They give you a giant list of songs within many different genres and you can pick which songs you want (and also DON'T want). I was very picky about what styles of music I wanted and they were perfect. You can have as many as 11 people in a band but we kept it to 5 people, and that was more than enough from what I can remember (and we had about 250 at our reception).

They also played acoustic guitar during our cocktail hour, and although I wasn't there to hear it other people told me they were great.

If you want to do more than just a DJ, they may be a little pricey for some but I felt like we got our money's worth.

We booked them 5 months before for their ceremony music and band for reception. They ask for your music style and play you some demos and make suggestions. Then based on your budget you either add or subtract to their suggestion. It was one of our quickest and most pleasant vendor meeting. Ceremony music was provided by flute and keyboard, which was unique to us...affordable, but nice sounding for classical music. As for the band, they were very in touch with the crowd, even though we did not give them a specific list of songs...and they kept the mood up. Very professional and adaptively spontaneous. Very refreshing. If you do not know anything about your music, but you know what you don't want, Bob Gail is the place to go. Also, we got our day of coordinator through Bob Gail. We got Carol. She was the nicest planner ever. Also, she made sure that everything went ok and never forgot about the bride. More...

I used the band Jumpstart for my daughter's wedding, and they kept the dance floor packed the whole night. The singers were amazing, and they played music from Sinatra through top 40. A true class act!

I used Bob Gail for my wedding last spring for flowers, band, wedding coordination, linens...pretty much everything. They not only found a site for my wedding that was perfect, but also were extremely professional and easy to work with. They made me a demo of my flowers so that I could make any changes before the event and my wedding coordinators (they sent 2!) made it so I didn't have to stress at all on my wedding day. I loved that I could use one company for everything because I didn't have to keep track of multiple vendors and was actually able to enjoy the wedding planning process instead of worrying about all of the details. The band was incredible--we danced all night and my friends and family still talk about it. My cousin loved the wedding so much that she's using Bob Gail for her wedding in December! More...
