Let me first start off by saying how unbelievably impressive Scheme Events was from the moment we retained them to plan our wedding. Our wedding planner, Francesca Torrella, was helpful in every facet of the planning of our wedding. At our first meeting, she was extremely attentive and captured our vision so well. She helped us prioritize the most important features of our wedding to help develop a workable budget that fit our needs. She also helped find amazing vendors and facilitated contact with each of them to ensure that the wedding planning was as seamless as possible. She even located a photographer/videographer company out of California that was absolutely perfect for us and totally captured the vision of our wedding. The careful details and attention that Francesca gave to us in the months and days leading up to our special day was nothing short of spectacular.

Francesca met with us quarterly, in person to discuss the wedding details as the day came closer. She was always timely in her responses to our e-mails and maintained a positive attitude throughout the entire planning process. When unexpected circumstances arose in the days leading up to the wedding, Francesca was there for us to provide great solutions to ensure that the wedding and reception were amazing.

Approximately one month from our wedding date, Francesca put together sample layouts for our reception. We also met her at our venue to help us make the right decisions regarding the layout. Needless to say, this team was exquisite and we never felt any stress throughout the months and days leading up to our wedding.

On the date of the wedding, Francesca and her amazing team went above and beyond to ensure that the day went perfectly. They kept us on schedule, but were not intrusive during the wedding and reception. They really allowed us to have a great time and experience no stress or worries.

Rest assured that when any couples ask us who we recommend to plan their weddings, we will not hesitate to wholeheartedly recommend Scheme Events. The professionalism and awesome planning services they provided throughout are unmatched in Las Vegas.

Our wedding planner (Francesca) from Scheme Events was an absolute dream to work with. She takes the lead on partial planning, which is what we had and we could not have had a better experience from beginning to end. She was easy and enjoyable to work with and she kept me and my husband on track with everything. The entire Scheme Team made our wedding day the most memorable ever! More...

We hired Tara as our wedding planner after being recommended by a friend of ours.  Initially, we went through the list of recommended planners by the wedding venue but for some reason we never clicked with each one.  We knew we wanted to hire her with our first meeting.  She is very professional and amazing!We came to her with less than a year left and once we finalized the agreement she didn't skip a beat.  She started sending us vendors and recommendations while staying on top of our budget.  We went from being overwhelmed to feeling happy and at ease with her knowledge and advice.  She listened to our ideas and executed our vision exactly the way we wanted it, actually even better. On the wedding day, she planned the timeline perfectly in order for us to follow and made sure vendors confirmed a few days before.  She was on top of everything during the wedding and made sure everything was going as planned.  We were so fortunate to have her plan our wedding.  Tara and her team made our dream wedding truly unforgettable!  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

I was fortunate enough to have Francesca and the Scheme Events team as my "month-of" planner. Francesca took my vision for my wedding and perfected it. From the minute I met with Francesca she was calm, cool and collected...she listened intently to my concerns and requests and delivered perfectly. Francesca assured me that everything would be as I envisioned it, and it was. On the day of my wedding, Francesca and her team worked to make sure that all vendors set up correctly, were on time, everything was in place and everything looked the best it possibly could look, with smiles on their faces the entire day. The whole team was calming, complimentary, assuring, kind, hard-working, professional and positive...with great personalities!! I would recommend Francesca to anyone with an upcoming wedding, you will not be disappointed. More...

Our experience with Scheme events was outstanding. Tara met with us and we instantly connected. The attention to detail and professionalism was immediately prominent. What set her apart was the passion she had towards bringing our vision to life. She didn't only listen and take notes but truly got to know us as a couple. After the first meeting she delivered a wonderfully detailed plan of action for our big day. From then on it was as if we could do nothing but enjoy the entire process. Those cliche feelings of being nervous or anxious about finding a common ground to create a day that appeases each person was washed away. Scheme events truly delivers on the attention to detail you want while also providing creative vision that sets them apart from the rest. Which in turn sets your wedding apart from the rest. We always felt special and that we were getting our own custom designed wedding. When the big day was finally here Tara and her team had everything handled. Scheme events took a dream and made it a reality. It was the greatest day of our lives! We cannot thank Tara enough and it was the best decision. More...

Where do I begin! Tara and her team are absolutely amazing! They went above and beyond to make our wedding dream come true.

I interviewed/met with tons of wedding planners but when I met Tara it was different. I could tell she had a passion for her work and she genuinely loved what she did.

I loved the fact that I was able to work directly work with her. Some of my girl friends that got married said they were mostly in communication with the wedding planner’s assistant. This was not the case with Tara. Even though I knew she was planning other weddings she never made us feel like our wedding was not important or too far down the road to worry about. We always felt like her main priority. I also loved the fact that I could email Tara at 9:30PM and when I would wake up the next day I would have an email from her answering all my million questions.

Tara also did an amazing job recommending vendors to use. From DJ Shai Peri to Mike at Pure Light Creative. They were all amazing.

Some other things we loved about Tara:
• Attention to detail
• Amazing listener
• Worked with our budget

She is an amazing wedding planner and has an amazing team. You will not be disappointed. We're so grateful we had her as our planner.

Tara and her team were AMAZING!!
She really made my special day feel completely at ease.
I didn't even need to stress about anything. My seating chart never even showed up, and she dealt with that without any issues.
They were so great! If any of my friends ever plan a wedding in vegas, Scheme Events WILL be who i point them to!

Best decision I ever made (well maybe a close second to actually marrying my husband) was hiring Scheme to plan my wedding! Rissa is so amazing at her job and I know that my wedding could not have gone any better! All of our guests said it was the best wedding they have ever been too! Brides - do yourself a favor and hire the Scheme girls for your big day! More...

You know you have an AMAZING wedding planner when after its all over& done .You realize you kind of got attached to her & are sad you wont be dealing with her anymore (Rissa) . There are not enough kind word in the dictionary to describe how Fantastic & hardworking these Scheme ladies are! Let me start off by saying we did not have a large budget for fancy wedding with all the custom details a lot of brides get . Our wedding still turned out to be everything I always dreamed it to be! And if I had a million dollars to spend today I would not change 1 thing ! They worked so hard , Made sure we stayed within our budget, & still made it look like a million bucks! Rissa matched us with fantastic vendors & always looked out for our best interest. These ladies are top notch business women who can do it all & always keep it classy!
Thank you Scheme!

I was initially on the fence about needing a day of coordinator...but boy am I glad I found Scheme Events and Francesca. Francesca is absolutely amazing. She handled everything perfectly, even when there were last minute change ups with the wedding party. The wedding went absolutely perfectly and I didn't have to stress about one thing the day of. Francesca and Scheme Events are a definite must-have for any wedding! More...

If you're looking for a wedding planner, look no more! Scheme Events is exactly what you're looking for. Tara's attention to detail was very much appreciated leading up to and during the wedding. Her team's expertise and guidance is impeccable. She is sweet, calm and polite but also direct and dedicated to making your day exactly how you picture it.

Unfortunately, we had a small hiccup (due to another vendor, it was in NO WAY Tara's fault!) but I didn't even know there was a problem during the wedding because she discretely handled everything with so much care. Knowing what Scheme Events went through to cover the mistakes of another lazy vendor makes me so grateful! Mistakes and hiccups are bound to happen, but this is nothing you want to or should have to deal with on your special day! I'm so thankful we had this wonderful team on our side.

I can't imagine our wedding without Scheme Events, and will be recommending them to all of my friends! Thank you!!!

Tara and her team did an amazing job to help make our day unforgettable. From answering all my questions, to coordinating the rehearsal, and creating a timeline for our day, Scheme Events was critical in making our wedding weekend run smoothly. I would recommend their “day-of” coordination so that you can enjoy your wedding day and let them handle the details. More...

Tara was so wonderful with everything leading up to our wedding day. We utilized Scheme Events for Day of Coordination, and I feel like we got so much more! She was so helpful in finalizing everything with our vendors- once she stepped it it was like a huge weight was lifted! I can't express how helpful she was. Everything went perfect on the big day, and that was thanks to Tara! I would recommend Scheme Events to anyone! :) More...

We worked with Francesca for month of coordination services. She was just fantastic. She paid excellent attention to all the details. The timeline was perfect. As the mother of the bride,I knew I could just relax and enjoy on the actual day of the wedding. She promptly answered all emails and provided several vendors for other things when I asked her. She was a very delightful person to work with on everything! Thank you,Francesca! You were tops! More...

Tara is not only the best wedding coordinator out there, but truly an amazing person inside and out. This means so much when planning a wedding because it should be personalized and unique down to the tiniest of details and Tara was able to do that for us because of her genuine interest for us as a couple. We started planning over 2 years out and Tara was organized, timely, thoughtful and creative throughout the entire planning process. She was straight forward with ideas and costs and after a while she was reading my mind when it came down to the design plan. She will spend the time to research, plan and then present you with multiple courses of action and was a life savor when choosing vendors since we were not living in the area. The day of the wedding, I learned of a couple things that went wrong, but it wasn't until after the fact because Tara had it totally under control and was a superstar at putting out the fires. I am beyond grateful that Tara was our wedding coordinator and turned into an amazing friend along the way. She can turn your dream wedding into reality. You will not regret choosing Scheme Events and Tara! More...

Where do I begin...Tara you made my dream wedding come to life! From the very beginning I loved working with Scheme. Our meetings were always so helpful to make sure I was staying on track with the planning and to make sure my design vision was pulled together. Tara gave us so many pointers and tips, I seriously couldn't have done it without you! Then on our actual wedding day, I was so glad to have you there. Tara made sure everything was running smoothly at the wedding site while we were getting ready. I really don't know how brides do it without a day of coordinator. Also thank you to Francesca and Traci for helping with all of my small details and making sure we were taken care of during our reception. You girls are the best! Xoxo More...

We cannot thank Scheme & Tara enough for making our wedding day so perfect!!

First of all, planning our wedding was no easy feat because we live in Hong Kong and decided to get married in Vegas, we did not have time to fly over to scout for venues, which meant that Tara had to do all these field trips and videos for us!!

Tara also designed this beautiful wedding theme and gave us some great suggestions on vendors, she took care of all the finer details that I had never even thought of. Its been 2 months since our wedding and our guests are still raving about how amazing the finer details were.

Oh, and did i mention there is a 15 hour time difference between Vegas and Hong Kong so all our meetings were done through skype calls in the evening.

Thank you so much Tara for being incredibly organised, patient and accomodating with us. Our wedding day was the best day of our lives because of her! i would 100% recommend Scheme and Tara :)

Hiring Scheme, and specifically Tara, to help us plan our wedding may be the best thing we have ever done (after getting engaged of course). We loved working with Tara! We were nervous about planning a destination wedding but Tara was with us every step of the way. She worked with our budget, listened to our ideas, and helped us sort out our wants versus needs. Tara understood exactly what we wanted our day to feel like. Even though we lived really far away, Tara was always available whether by email, phone, or Skype. Our wedding day was wonderful and every detail perfectly represented us. It was really beyond our expectations! Having Tara beside us meant we could relax and focus on each other and our guests. We're so thankful that we not only had the wedding of our dreams but we have made a wonderful new friend in the process! More...

Upon getting engaged, my husband and I originally thought we would wait until we eventually moved back to the east coast to get married where all of our friends and family live, but after a few months, we decided we didn’t want to wait any longer and we were going to get married in Las Vegas! My husband and I work opposite shifts so it made the idea of planning a wedding by ourselves unimaginable. I decided to look up wedding planners and Scheme Events had really great reviews so I submitted an inquiry to meet and see if it was a good fit.

At our initial meeting, we met with Traci who was outgoing, fun, passionate and most importantly, she laughed at my husband’s jokes  We got along so well during our first meeting that we decided right then and there that Scheme, and Traci were for us! Traci’s personality and style was a perfect match for us. She seemed to know everything we would love before we did! All of the vendors she recommended were absolutely fantastic and every idea we presented to her seemed to seamlessly fit into the overall vision she was building for us! I’m not sure how many other weddings she may have been planning or helping with at the time, but throughout the 8 months or so that we worked together, I literally felt like I was the only bride she was helping! She answered every text, email and call within minutes! I honestly don’t know how she kept all of the little details straight, she is truly gifted at what she does!

Our wedding day was absolutely perfect! Every detail was executed perfectly and the décor was stunning! I lost count of how many people approached us telling us it was the best wedding they had ever been to! We would not have been able to pull it off without Scheme helping us every step of the way! Scheme is an incredible company comprised of incredible women who are passionate about what they do and it truly shows. We could not be happier with the planning and execution of our wedding!

I don't think I could ever find the right words to express just how amazing Tara and all the girls of Scheme truly are. After reading multiple reviews of wedding planners in the beginning stages of our engagement, I kept coming back to Scheme and we absolutely made the right decision. From the very start, I knew hiring Tara was the best decision we could have made. She knew which vendors were best for us and I never had a single worry during our year of planning. Even when she was 9 months pregnant, Tara was amazing in making sure our wedding day was perfect in every detail. We even ran half an hour early! How often does that happen! The only thing Im sad about is that we wont get to do it again. Please do yourself a favor and hire Scheme for your next big event. You will definitely not regret it!
Thank you Tara for giving us the wedding of our dreams! We love you!

Rissa & staff handled our Son's wedding and to say it was fabulous is putting it mildly.  Rissa worked with our son and his future wife to plan a fabulous party. They transformed the event space into a beautiful magical place.  The wedding was perfectly planned out.  Everyone enjoyed the photo booth.  Scheme Events set up food & beverage stations inside & outside, allowing people to enjoy the great night outside.  The food was fabulous.  Rissa & Staff did an amazing job.  We could not have been in better hands on this very important day.

Hiring Rissa and Scheme Events to plan our January 2015 wedding was easily one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Both my husband and I work demanding jobs, and knew we didn’t want the planning process to consume our lives. From the moment I first met Rissa (girl crush!), she was more like that beyond-organized, insanely creative, and super fun best friend that every girl wants in her life. Rissa was patient when we were indecisive, gave us guidance without ever being pushy and had SO many ideas to personalize our day.

With our ceremony at a Catholic Church and reception at Dragon Ridge Country Club, I was concerned that our wedding would be totally generic, impersonal and boring. Between mood boards, Pinterest exchanges and getting-to-know-you brainstorming sessions, Rissa guided us towards a totally unique English-Garden-Gatsby themed day, magically transforming a sterile ballroom into a sensory overload of romantic and rustic touches. Both my husband and I were in complete shock and awe the whole day.

To top it off, Rissa continuously went above and beyond to include my out-of-town parents in the planning process, something that was super important to me since they were significant financial contributors to our day. Rissa graciously spent hours on the phone with my mother, meticulously answering all her questions and calming her nerves. So sweet and greatly appreciated!

Our wedding was easily one of the best days of our lives! We received so many compliments from our guests that it was the best wedding they’ve ever attend, and almost 10 months later, our friends and family are still talking about it like it was yesterday. Absolutely LOVE Rissa and Scheme Events for helping us start our marriage in the most amazing way possible.

There aren't enough nice things I can say about Scheme! I was lucky enough to have Rissa as my planner, but I know you can't go wrong with Scheme no matter which planner you get. These Scheme gals seriously rock. All of them.

But back to Rissa, she was (and still is!) awesome every step of the way. Planning the wedding was a long 2 year process for me and the Husband. Rissa was patient, professional, and oh-so-sweet for every day of the planning process. Rissa took the time to really get to know my husband and I so that she was able to create a beautiful wedding catered specifically to our tastes.

And it wasn't just the planning and the designing. (she designed a GORGEOUS wedding for me, btw) It was executing. When the Big Day came, Scheme was there earlier than I was awake. They started prepping and hauling while I sipped on my bubblies. The whole wedding party and I got to focus on getting ready and having fun. Rissa and her team was able to handle everything from the questions to the decorating. As bad as I felt that they had to hustle because of me, the more grateful I was to have Scheme's help.

Without Rissa, I wouldn't have had such a beautiful and memorable day. Thank you so much Rissa!!!

At first I was only interested in hiring a day-of coordinator; but retaining Scheme's full-service wedding coordination made so much more sense. Rissa (my planner from Scheme) wasn't just my organizer, my reminder, my designer, or my check-list keeper. She became my friend, my wedding diary, my calm to my wedding freak-outs.

First off, the Scheme gals have impeccable style and tastes. I had the good fortune to meet all of Scheme's planners during our first meeting and they all showed up prompt and looking fab. Their office was modern and high-end. Everything was thought out and meticulously styled. If you're wondering if their design eye and attention to detail was beneficial in wedding planning, I'll tell you, "TOTALLY." That was actually one of the most noted compliment from my wedding. People kept saying, "i LOVED the attention to detail." I felt guilty for saying thank you, because I knew it was ALL SCHEME.

Also, I've seen many otherwise cool, calm, and collected brides lose all their cool, calm, and collectedness over the years as the big day approached. I was prepared to do that myself, but the soon-to-be Husband wasn't. He said that if hiring Scheme would give me peace of mind, then it was worth it. What a keeper!

I don't even know where to start to show my appreciation for Rissa from Scheme Events. She worked with me for over a year putting our wedding together and it was amazing! She is super professional, very sweet, and able to work miracles no matter what crazy things popped up in our planning! She even put up with my fiance and I's obsession with video games and corgis to help us incorporate them into the wedding! She was able to put us into contact with vendors that matched what we were looking for and made things so easy for us in the long run! I had no idea what I was doing putting a wedding together, and there is no way things would have gone so beautifully without her. If I could have her plan all of my events in the future, I would!

I'm a guy. I knew what I wanted and the rest didn't really matter. I wanted people to have fun at my wedding. I wanted the wedding to look tasteful and nice. And I wanted my soon-to-be Wife to not have a mental breakdown. Thanks to Scheme, I'm happy to report that I got all that I wanted!

Rissa was exceptional and very professional in handling all the scheduling, details, and questions. Everything she said she would do, she did it and she did it gracefully. She really took the heat off of me by being the Wife's right hand woman. I was able to fly under the radar a lot of the time because Rissa knew all the details. (Thanks Rissa!)

Rissa also listened and paid close attention to our different styles. I really like wood grain and citrus. The Wife likes everything except pink and feathers, so we had lots of stylistic elements we wanted to incorporate into the wedding. Rissa was able to cohesively mesh our ideas tastefully and elegantly.

Most important of all, the Wife trusted Rissa enough to give up the reins and have fun. Which meant less fighting, less tears, no breakdowns, and more fun! Couldn't have done it without Scheme, and I cant recommend them enough. THANK YOU RISSA!

After being frustrated with wedding planning for a long time, I decided to call Scheme Events. The woman on the phone was Tara, one of Scheme’s lead planners. After one quick chat with Tara I knew I had to convince my husband Chris that we needed to get a wedding planner. I spoke to Chris about it, and surprisingly he was on board. I didn't have to convince him though, Scheme proved then and there that we needed them in our life! I was in way over my head, trying to plan a wedding and a honeymoon while I was in school. From the moment we walked into Scheme’s office we felt a wave of relief swoosh over us. Tara was going to be our coordinator. She and her perfectly manicured three prong binder were our saving grace. She had an answer for everything, a timeline, ideas, and a plan of attack! Tara listened to my ideas and ran with them. I had a vision. I wanted elegance with a little garden vibe. It was like Tara was in my brain! She knew how to fill in the gaps where I was lacking. She understood that I wanted a level of formality while still maintaining that fun and personal vibe. Piece by piece, our wedding was falling into place. It was honestly one of the easiest experiences of my life. Tara thought of everything. She had a quick answer for everything and lots of great connections to other really good and respectable vendors. The whole day was just so easy. So meticulously coordinated and I didn’t have to do a thing! All I had to do was enjoy myself. All of my cute DIY projects, our cake utensils, picture frames and cards were all thought of, cleaned and put into our hotel room. Scheme really thought of everything and delivered an outstanding performance. Thanks to Scheme Events, my little idea became a vision and then it became a beautiful perfect reality. More...

Francesca and Rissa from Scheme Events were our day off coordinators for our wedding. They made our lives so much easier and smoother by taking charge of all the little details concerning our day. Seriously, I don't know what we would've done without them coordinating things with all our vendors and taking charge of setting things up at our venue. Everything went so smoothly on that day and they helped us stick to our schedule as planned. They even helped with the clean up process even though that was not part of their jobs but because we had a vendor who slacked off on their duties. We never knew there were any issues until much later because Francesca and Rissa took charge and made sure we were able to focus on our day and each other instead. And, they are really nice to work with. I would highly recommend Scheme! More...

The Scheme team is really the Dream team.

From the first call with Scheme, I knew that I wanted them as part of my wedding day. Within a couple of hours of sending an email inquiry, Rissa has called me to discuss my wedding and their services. We continued to correspond and then met at Springs Preserve when I was visiting Las Vegas.

Rissa was a complete joy to deal with and although I had booked them only for Day of Coordination, she provided a wonderful listing of their preferred vendors (who all turned out to be superstars) to help me in my planning.

One month prior to the wedding as included in the Day of Coordination package, Tara from Scheme contacted me and introduced herself as the planner for my event. I provided her all of my planning details and she created a thorough production schedule for the day. Tara is organized, kind, and calming - exactly the type of person you want to be working with as you plan your wedding.

Being an event planner for work, I was really worried that I wouldn't be able to enjoy my wedding day thinking about all of the little details. But Tara assured me that they would take care of everything. And they sure did.

I had an amazing wedding day and a huge reason for that is because I had the lovely ladies of Scheme by my side to make sure all of my plans and ideas came to life.

I cannot thank you enough for everything and I wish the Scheme team all the success in the future!

I worked with Rissa Gunderson while planning my destination wedding in Las Vegas & I am truly more grateful for her than I can ever express in a review. During the year long process of planning, she was incredibly helpful, responsive, excited and understanding of the difficulty of planning a destination wedding. On our wedding day, Rissa, Tracy and Kara handled it all like the pros that they are & never missed a beat. Rissa brought my vision alive and executed it beautifully. Honestly even more beautifully than I ever imagined it could be! Every single one of the vendors that I hired for my wedding was based on recommendations from her & they were all absolutely amazing. Between our timeline, reception decor, handling the wedding party details, attending to our guests needs & just providing so much love and support to us, I feel so lucky to have found them. By far the very best wedding decision I made was hiring Rissa and her team. I read SO many reviews from other brides saying how relaxed they felt on their wedding day because of all that Scheme provided and I can now tell you that I had the same experience! I was able to enjoy every minute of the day with my bridesmaids and it was the best gift of all. I floated around our wedding socializing with loved ones & dancing the night away while Rissa worked her magic. There was even a point that the bustle on my dress broke and Rissa was right there with practically a tool kit to put me back together:) One of my favorite moments was when I took the short walk alone to meet my parents who were walking me down the aisle & those last seconds were spent with Rissa & her team. In that very moment, they were more than just my wedding planners. They were friends that provided that support and calmness that I needed before the big moment & I will never forget that feeling. I honestly can't say enough about my positive experience with Rissa and Scheme Events. Thank you for making all of my dreams come true!! More...

We used Scheme events from start to finish and it could not have been better. We really had very few ideas of what we wanted for our wedding when we first met Tara. She was so helpful from the very beginning that we knew we couldn't do it without her. There was absolutely no way I could have ever put together such a beautiful day on my own. There are so many vendors, details, and fine print that I would have gone crazy. As it was, I really didn't have to worr More...

My husband and I live in Montreal, but we decided to get married in Las Vegas. It would have been a disaster if we didn't have Traci from Scheme Events on our side.
Throughout the entire process, she was always available, professional and continually gave us great ideas.
When it came to the actual day, her team handled everything and made sure all of our guests had a wonderful time. Our guests always knew where they were supposed to be and everything seemed to happen naturally and effortlessly.
The vendors she recommended were absolutely PERFECT for our event. Especially the photographer: Adam Trujillo Photography.
We simply couldnt of done it without her.
THANK YOU SCHEME EVENTS

If there were room for 6 stars, I would give 6! Scheme Events was just INCREDIBLE. I wasn't sure if I needed a wedding planner but decided to go ahead with it. Why would someone so A type, organized, and needing to keep her fingers in everything going on benefit from a wedding planner? Well, thank goodness I did! The VALUE it added to our wedding was worth every cent, times 10. We had no stress, no worries, and everything went super smooth, all because of Rissa (our planner from scheme) and her team. Everyone always says your wedding day goes by so fast and you have no time to absorb it. I really feel like I got to enjoy my day because of scheme. I had no worries of logistics, timeline, vendors, set up, take down, or anything! I got to just be a bride for the day. When people ask me if I think they need a wedding planner, my answer is always a resounding yes. You are purchasing your sanity when you go with scheme! Besides the wedding day, Rissa made planning beyond easy. She got to know my and my fiancé, and really understood our vision. She kept us on budget, and she brought us vendors she knew would suit our personalities. With her mounds of experience, she was able to provide us with suggestions and recommendations. Her vision for the wedding made our event STUNNING. After the wedding, she stayed in touch to help us wrap up any loose ends. I can't emphasize enough the value of Scheme as our wedding planners. They were an invaluable investment that gave us so much on our wedding day as well as during the planning process. I would recommend Rissa and Scheme to absolutely anyone getting married in Vegas.

We hired Scheme Events about 6 months before our wedding date. We were assigned Traci and she was fabulous! She took the time to listen to our vision and helped us feel at ease every step of the way. Due to the fact that we lived about 1000 miles away, we could only fly out twice. Therefore, during each visit she set up the day with a full itinerary to accomplish as much as possible. In-between visits she kept in constant contact with us via text and email. She picked amazing vendors and which made our wedding day relaxing and fun! Most importantly, we just wanted our friends and family to have an amazing time and Scheme Events delivered exactly this. We received feedback from everyone that they had a blast and recalls it as a day they will never forget...and for us that is priceless. Thank you Scheme Events and Traci for everything! More...

One of the best decisions I made last year (aside from saying I Do to the love of my life) was selecting the ladies from Scheme Events to bring my wedding vision to life! From the first communication all the way through hugs at the end of the reception, Traci and the ladies at Scheme impressed me with their patience, knowledge, style, and organization.

As an event planner myself, I knew that I didn't want to be bogged down with details, but I most certainly had an opinion... about everything. Traci's ability to listen to my vision ensured that when I didn't have the time to be involved (or didn't want to know about the details) that she was able to jump in and make the perfect decision for our event. The style and sweet touches she added to the day were the very best!

The vendor recommendations from Orange Soda Photography (geniuses) to Gimme Some Sugar Bake Shoppe (amazing) and She Paperie (a true artist) were top notch and I always felt reassured when they said we were working with the best... I couldn't agree more!

I cannot thank Scheme Events enough for their support, guidance, and expertise through an exciting and overwhelming several months of planning. I can truly say they were the smartest part of my wedding budget :)

I started planning my Vegas wedding last September and thought I could plan a destination wedding from the east coast on my own. I made a trip to Las Vegas and scheduled several appointments with various venues. Even an organized person like me became overwhelmed quickly and I realized I needed to fit a wedding planner in the budget if we were going to have a destination wedding.

After reading tons of reviews and doing some research (check out their blog and website), I scheduled a phone consultation with Rissa. She and I hit it off right away. She helped me so much and gave me so many tips without even knowing I was going to hire Scheme. I quickly decided that I couldn't plan my wedding without these ladies.

Tara then became my lead planner and I couldn't have asked for a better wedding planner and person to plan my dream wedding. She never made me feel that my wedding wasn't important or that she was too busy for me. I honestly felt like she was only planning my wedding when in the meantime, I know she was very busy with her other clients. Tara is a great listener, extremely professional and full of ideas… not to mention a ton of fun to be around. I probably had some crazy requests for things I wanted to fit into our wedding weekend and wedding budget but somehow Tara made things happen and literally fit everything in.

The moment I will always remember is when Tara and I ran a few errands on the Thursday before the wedding (our wedding was on Sunday). When we finished, she looked at me and told me to go and enjoy my wedding weekend because my part was done and it was her job the rest of the weekend. If I didn’t have Tara and Scheme, I would have been stressed out up until the minute I walked down the aisle. If I could have a “repeat” of one weekend of my life, it would absolutely be my wedding weekend and wedding day. My husband and I had the time of our life...we highly recommend Scheme Events! Thank you Tara!

Where do I begin...I LOVE SCHEME EVENTS!!!!!!!! Ladies (and gents) do yourself a favor and call the Scheme girls right now. I had the privilege of working with Rissa Gunderson and it was truly the best experience! My fiancé and I had been engaged for almost year when I finally realized that I needed help and that's when I found Scheme. I sent in an inquiry through their website and within just a few hours I was on the phone with Rissa setting up a time to meet in person. We clicked instantly and I didn't even consider meeting with anyone else.

When I look back now on the wedding planning experience I have a huge smile on my face because I wasn't stressed out or overwhelmed. Rissa is super fun, creative, amazingly organized, and just down right awesome at her job and that goes for the rest of the Scheme Team as well!

In the last 5 weeks since our wedding I have had so many people reach out to me and say it was the BEST wedding they have ever been too and I give all of that credit to Rissa!

I could actually go on forever about how great my experience was - I seriously miss working with Rissa (she became so much more than my wedding planner during this process - which is probably the most important thing!!)

Reach out to Scheme Events now!! You will be sooooooooooooo happy you did :)

Working with Scheme Events was one of the best decisions I made! We started working with Tara about six months prior to our destination wedding in Vegas and from day one she was totally and completely on top of it. I'm a very detailed oriented person and she was a fantastic match. Not only does Scheme know and work with all of the top vendors in Vegas, but they take the time to select the perfect vendors to deliver on your personal vision. Tara was also incredibly personable, funny, calming and just a pleasure to be around.
We could not be happier with the end product - our wedding was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G and we owe it all to Tara/Scheme. Even some last minute requests for blankets (it was an unusually cool day in Vegas) the morning of my wedding and then shifting some details around at the actual wedding were met with a "happy to do" attitude.
We would recommend Tara and Scheme Events to anyone and everyone. Especially the discerning/type-A/particular bride. :) They were truly the best.

As an out-of-town couple, choosing a wedding planner was probably the most important decision we would make. After looking at a number of different vendors, we selected Rissa with Scheme Events. From day one through the wedding day, we had zero regrets about doing so.

We only made one trip to Vegas prior to the ceremony to do stuff that couldn't be done online (look at venues, watch bands, etc.) Rissa, after listening to what we were looking for, set up meetings and prepared an itinerary. Rissa even accompanied us to the meetings and asked the questions we never thought of.

The selection of vendors was ours, but Rissa gave her advice. She never pressured us to pick one over another. For the most part, we went with what she recommended. Rissa reviewed the contracts and answered any questions we had.

Then the "event planning" portion of the service started, with Rissa helping design a theme and look of our wedding. She did a great job of offering up ideas and developing an image of what we wanted the wedding to be. Rissa was always available via email to answer questions, and had Skype sessions with us a few times to go over whatever needed to be reviewed. Despite being thousands of miles away, Rissa made us feel like this event was taking place in our backyard.

The end result was everything we could have hoped for. Everything went smoothly and according to plan. It was such a relief to not have to be focused on dealing with the vendors on the day of. Rissa had the wedding organized and ran it like a well-oiled machine.

I would refer Rissa to anyone, especially a couple who is planning their wedding from long distance. In what could have been a very difficult and stressful process, Rissa made it easy and peaceful. We give Rissa the highest recommendation possible.

I am not sure I can put into words how grateful we are to have had Rissa Gunderson and her team you with us every step of the way to our daughter’s wedding. Organising a wedding for your only daughter is an awesome task and managing this process from the Middle East made it that much more difficult. From the time we first contacted you, then meeting you in person, there was not a doubt in our minds that you would be the key to the success of this very important occasion. You managed to steer us in all the right directions when it came to the many various providers who contribute to the event; Pastor, printer, photographer, videographer, florist, linen supplier, lighting, music, need I go on. All your recommendations proved talented, experienced and above all, reliable. To attract good contacts, and enjoy the obvious sound relationships you have with these various providers, is a credit to you and your firm. We also benefited from the close working relationship you enjoy with the team at the Four Seasons hotel. All our guests are still commenting on the occasion, as being one of the loveliest and most fun. I know the amount of work that goes on in front and behind the scenes; the attention to detail that is required for an event to appear seamless and practised, it may be one of many for you and the team, but it felt very unique to us! Observing you work with people from so many walks of life, in so many different capacities you show professionalism, patience, and kindness, we have been fortunate indeed. Weddings can also be quite stressful for family, your temperament and quiet confidence was comforting and it was easy for us to leave some matters in your capable hands. Thank you again for everything. (Eddy Family Dubai) More...

My wife and I used Scheme Events to plan our wedding. Tara Frederico was our wedding planner and she was amazing. My wife is an extreme planner and Tara and the Scheme girls helped take a lot of the stress off of planning our big day. They were able to narrow the choices down to reputable companies and kept everything within our budget without compromising on quality. The savings they got us with the different vendors also saved us more than their fee so they really do pay for themselves. My wife especially loved them because they have a great creative eye and made planning fun. The designs they came up with looked like things in wedding magazines. Last but not least, our wedding went off without any problems that we know of. Tara made sure everything flowed smoothly and ran the show the entire time. She was able to reorganize events on the fly and our day was so much more awesome because of it. If we could have given them more stars we would have. Hiring Scheme is a no brainer. More...

When we started working with Traci at Scheme, we didn't know where to start in our wedding planning and were frankly overwhelmed by the idea of it. Traci immediately set our minds at ease! She found us an AMAZING one-of-a-kind venue that suited our needs and desires perfectly. From then on out, every vendor she recommended to us was great. Traci was there for us every step of the way, and helped us to plan the perfect wedding that went off without a single hitch and was completely gorgeous and amazing. I highly recommend Scheme!

Out of all of our wedding vendors, Scheme Events is the company that I recommend the highest.

We worked with Tara, and she made everything so easy. What I loved most about working with Tara was that she truly made it about us. I have experiences with other wedding planners who push their own agendas on their clients, and that was so NOT the case with Tara. She is a great listener and does not offer unsolicited recommendations, but will definitely give some EXCELLENT referrals if you ask.

I think a lot of brides make a mistake by thinking they can do everything themselves, but that is a logistics NIGHTMARE. I love to "DIY" things, but on the day of our wedding, my husband did not want me to worry about placing candles on tables or meeting up with the florist or making sure the DJ can get in to set up.

That's where Scheme came in for us, and I couldn't be happier about our decision to bring them on board. Tara handled all of those "little" things, which do add up to be big things. She also did the confirmations with all of our vendors and set up an extremely organized timeline. In fact, I barely spoke to the vendors until the day of. My peace of mind was priceless!

Our rehearsal and wedding went off so smoothly thanks to her. I was so impressed by her organization. We also had a few very dramatic wedding guests who were trying to be "helpful" when no help was needed, but she handled them like a pro. I was very impressed by how she was able to effectively control both crowds and difficult people while still remaining so nice and kind.

So all in all, I HIGHLY recommend using Scheme for your wedding if you enjoy peace of mind and stress-free situations. =)

Thank you for everything, Tara!

As a bride planning a destination wedding to Las Vegas, I was worried that my vision would not come together as I envisioned in my head. I hired Tara and Francesca as my day of coordinators and I couldn't have asked for a better team to do the job! Tara and Francesca were very responsive to all of my emails throughout the planning process. They were incredibly helpful throughout the whole process, despite only being day of coordinators. The girls were so professional. During our wedding they ensured that everything was set up as I requested and even took care of our dog who was the ring bear for our wedding!!! There's a reason why this team is number one when you look up Las Vegas Events Coordinators!!!!! Thank you girls! More...

Hiring Rissa with Scheme Events was the best money we spent on our entire wedding!

We planned our entire Vegas wedding from Denver, so we didn’t have the opportunity to sit down with vendors face-to-face, or really even know where to being. Rissa was with us from the very beginning and made sure that we obtained quality vendors within our budget. We also entrusted Rissa and Francesca to set up our reception area as they saw fit the day of wedding and everything looked gorgeous! Rissa went above and beyond brining adorable signs for our doughnut table!

If you’re planning a wedding, especially from a distance I would highly recommend hiring Scheme Events! It’ll put your mind at ease, and for us, it saved us money in the long run and allowed us to stay on budget.

Choosing Scheme Events for our day of coordination services was definitely one of the best wedding decisions we made! Our primary coordinator, Rissa, was an absolute rock star! Her attention to detail deserves an A+. I too, am a very detail oriented person (which is why I knew I would definitely need someone qualified to take that responsibility off of my hands on my wedding day if there was any chance of me not being a stressed bride)- and I have to say Rissa was just the right gal for the job. It was SO helpful to have her review all of our vendor contracts, develop a nicely detailed production schedule, and reach out to each of our vendors a week or so prior to the wedding to ensure everyone was clear on their responsibilities, arrival times, etc. She was also able to give me great experience based advice on some things I couldn't quite make my mind up about, as well as some excellent vendor recommendations when needed.
Rissa, Tara, and Madison were all present to assist on our wedding day, and in a word were just- FABULOUS! I cannot thank those ladies enough for all they did to assist and ensure our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception ran as smoothly as possible, and close to schedule. At the end of the night our wedding party was nearly stranded at the venue after a nightmare experience with V Transportation (Warning- DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT use them for your transportation services). Rissa jumped right on the phone, contacted Bell Trans and arranged for another shuttle to pick us up right away…ultimately saving the day! :-)
I highly recommend Scheme Events to any future bride….your special day is just too important not to!

If you're not sure whether you need a wedding planner or not, please listen to me when I say: you need Scheme Events!!

Our contact was Rissa and we could not be more thrilled with the service she provided. We booked the "day of co-ordination" and it was worth every cent (and then some!).

Every single step of the way Rissa has been a joy to deal with. She listened to all of my ideas, steered me in a better direction where needed and could not have been more helpful. She responded to every email (and there were lots!) quickly, efficiently and with total respect - even silly concerns were treated as if they were important to her.

Living over in Ireland I was pretty clueless about how to start planning our day, but Rissa helped me with fantastic recommendations and every vendor she suggested was just perfect for us.

Rissa was calm, organised and knew exactly how to deal with me. I was a bit of a mess on the morning of the wedding but she steadied me in moments!

The beauty of Scheme Events on the day was that most of our guests didn't even realise they were there; they ensured everything was set up perfectly, that everyone was where they needed to be and that everything flowed. The girls even provided a human shield so my hubbie didn't catch sight of me before I walked down the aisle!

I hope this review helps someone to decide to book Scheme Events because I am absolutely certain it is a decision you will be happy with - I would book them again in a heartbeat!

Amazing! Awesome! A+ service! Those are just some of the adjectives to describe Traci and her company Scheme Events. My wife and I planned a destination wedding so we had to rely on our vendors. We did not know Traci before booking her and only read the dozens of positives reviews about her service. Well they were all true and as we can speak from experience, she provided us with a stress-free wedding (leading up to and day of)! I have traits of a type A personality so trusting and giving Traci the responsibility to coordinate our wedding was not easy, but we put our trust in her and it was not lost for one second. She is such an amazing person and her staff is very professional. More...

She responded to all emails within a few hours and most times within a few minutes! On the day of the wedding Francesca and Tracy were on top of everything and allowed us to enjoy our day without worrying about the details.

Allowing Traci and the girls at Scheme to plan my wedding was by far the best decision I made. Not only was my wedding far better than I could even dream of, it was stress free. My MOH could not stop commenting about how relaxed I seemed the day of the wedding (I tend to be pretty high strung). I knew the girls had everything covered, so I could sit back and enjoy the day. Not only did they help with every single detail along the way, but they found me the most amazing vendors. My friends and family are still gushing over the ceremony and reception. So many of them have contacted me since and said that this was by far the best wedding they had been to, from the touching ceremony, to the fun and energetic DJ. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding. Traci was amazing throughout the whole year of planning and it was such a relief to have someone who not only helped with planning and taking care of the details, but also someone I could confide in. I could have never pulled off such an amazing event without them and would highly recommend them to anyone planning a wedding or event! More...

I cannot put into words how amazing and thankful I am to have hired Scheme Events to help with my wedding planning, keep me on track throughout the entire process and then finish the wedding day. The entire staff at Scheme is always so helpful and responsive. I worked with Rissa and Franscesa and the magic they pulled on my wedding day to make all the little details come together was just phenomenal. It was 106 degrees at an outside venue and they were outside working all day to make this special. There were a few issues from vendors that occurred, but I never even knew until after the wedding - they took away all my stress and just let me enjoy my day. Words cannot express my gratitude towards the entire Scheme Events staff, they will always be out go-to for any events! More...

Hiring Scheme events was one of the best choices I had made through all the things that came up during this wedding planning process. We hired them for day of coordination. They were on time, professional and made sure everything went perfectly smoothly. From making sure the bridal party was all lined up and ready for the ceremony to making sure every little detail was just perfect in the reception. Everything was well organized and that helped me to relax knowing they were there the whole time for anything that came up, it was priceless to know we had that support there. A month before the wedding they helped me get a timeline together and reconfirm all the vendors. This in itself was huge, I love the detailed hour by hour timeline, on the big day everything went smoothly because we all knew where we had to be. They are really good at what they do and are well worth it! More...

Rissa and Scheme Events were just wonderful. Rissa worked with me on planning our wedding for approximately one year. In that time, she was sweet, kind, and lovely during every interaction I had with her. Rissa's calm manner and attention to detail helped ensure that not only did things go smoothly, but also that I did not have to stress about a single thing with regard to my vendors or the vision in the months leading up to the wedding, or about anything at all on the wedding day itself.

We had an entirely unexpected medical type issue on the wedding day and Rissa ensured that things went without a hitch....ingeniously switching up cocktail hour to be before the ceremony and making sure that my guests were having a good time while the issues were dealt with. We could not have done it without her.

Do not underestimate the need for a great planner. If you are planning your wedding from outside Las Vegas, as I was, having someone awesome on your side helping you every step of the way is a necessity. Our wedding turned out amazing, fun, and exactly as we pictured, thanks in large part to Rissa.

I could not have done this without Rissa, and I could not recommend her, or Scheme Events, more highly.

I cannot say enough amazing things about Scheme Events to encourage future brides out there to run and enlist the help of these wonderful ladies. I first contacted Scheme after reading the great reviews here on weddingwire and none of my fellow brides exaggerated how incredible it was to have Scheme assist with wedding planning and day of coordination.

I was so lucky to have the opportunity to work with Traci on my wedding. The one thing I really wanted in a wedding planner was to have someone handle all the stress of my wedding day (so I could actually enjoy the "getting ready" part without being stressed coordinating vendors, etc.). I have no idea whether there were any issues that came up during my wedding day because the incredible Traci (and the equally wonderful Francesca) took care of everything and I never heard anything about it. Traci had my day of event schedule organized way before the wedding and I was able to send it to my bridal party. She worked with my photographer to create the best possible schedule for me. And then she kept us on schedule the day of the wedding to make sure we had enough time to spend with our guests and enjoy our reception. Ultimately, my wedding day was the best day of my life and I give a ton of credit to Traci and the team at Scheme Events for making it stress-free (or as low stress as a wedding day possible can be for a bride).

Brides, do yourself a favor and give Scheme Events a call asap as you start planning your wedding. And make sure to ask for Traci because she is the most encouraging, kind, motivated and organized wedding planner I can imagine. And I'm sure with her help that your wedding day will be as amazing as mine.

The ladies at Scheme made our wedding! We selected the day of coordination package and were provided with great vendor selections and great advice. Looking back on the excellent level of service we were provided I would not bat an eye at selecting the full service package. They listened to every detail and recommended vendors within our budget. As we were planning a destination wedding my fiance and I were nervous about how easy communication with our coordinator would be however Scheme responded to our emails/calls almost instantly, no matter how small the question! Throughout the planning process we were thrilled with how easy it was to communicate with Scheme and truly felt that they were as excited for our big day as we were.

On the day of, they took care of everything. They professionally handled all the glitches that normally arise on the day and possessed exceptional judgement with relaying to me these decisions. For example my guest bus was 20 minutes late to arrive (put all vendors on standby and kept me calm), my linens had not arrived (they arranged with the venue to find replacement burlap for the tables !!) and they fixed my dress that had broken during my grand entrance, among many other things. Scheme was amazing and would recommend them in a heartbeat for any event services.

I just got back from our wedding in Las Vegas last night. I give the ladies at Scheme Events the highest review. At first, I thought I would be able to do this myself and just use Scheme Events for the onsite coordination. After several weeks of vendor negotiations and back and forth...I wished I had used the ladies from the beginning. I ended up hiring them in the middle of the process and couldn't have been more relieved. Rissa was so great and took what I had started and pretty much ran with it.

From the planning to the day of the event, I couldn't have asked for more. Because of them, I truly felt calm the whole time. Our wedding was beautiful and everyone commented on how well the day flowed with all the logistics. The ladies at Scheme were professional, responsive and so flexible with me. I have only great things to say about Scheme Events.

I cannot rave enough about Scheme Events. I got lucky and met these ladies at the Bridal Convention in Las Vegas. I instantly clicked with Rissa and was lucky enough to get to work with her! She was very professional, quick to respond, helpful and very reasonably priced. I only used Scheme for Day of Coordination, but if I could do anything differently I would have had Scheme in charge of everything. Rissa was absolutely fantastic. As soon as I was able to hand over everything to her, I was instantly relieved and excited, rather than stressed out! Everything was gorgeous, she was able to understand my vision and execute it with little help from me :) Everything was very organized and everyone knew where they needed to be and what they needed to be doing when. We had a few mishaps (my father in law passed out before the wedding) and Rissa remained calm and went over all of the options with my fiancé. Rather than worry me 30 min before the wedding, she handled everything and then let me know, very calmly, when all was fine. There were so many instances in which she truly saved me, anything that I had forgotten or didn't get done last minute, she took it on herself, or found someone to help! Scheme was a pleasure to work with and I would absolutely recommend them! More...

Scheme and Tara were just fantastic to me. They took charge of my planning about a month out and ran my wedding day flawlessly. I enjoyed my wedding and never had to worry about a thing because Scheme had it covered. I couldn't have done it without their help, they were essential to my wedding and I would recommend them to anyone who has a wedding in Vegas. More...

Tara is the best! I met Tara at the Las Vegas Bridal Expo. The Expo itself was very overwhelming and Tara was the first person who wasn't overbearing and made genuine conversation. I knew right away I wanted to use her as we both were getting married at the same venue. Not only that, from the very beginning, she has displayed the utmost professionalism. The consultation at Scheme was very reassuring as their organization skills are impeccable. In the time between the consultation and wedding, she checked on our progress every so often. The week before our wedding, I was in the Emergency Room twice. During that time, Tara conducted our walk-through with our venue and vendors. She helped us with last-minute items that we were unable to get to. She went above and beyond when we couldn't manage. For the rehearsal and ceremony, Tara and Rissa were outstanding. They know and think of everything. All of our bridal party and even guests commented on how flawlessly everything went. They are amazing ladies and coordinators. We tell everyone and will continue to tell everyone how great Scheme is. Wedding coordination is a must for any wedding or event and Scheme is truly THE BEST! More...

Rissa and her team were life savers. I hired Scheme to do "day of coordination". They took care of all the details to ensure that we had a time line that went on pace, kept guests and family moving along and ensuring people were at the right place at the right time.
They took care of setting up all the extra details and decors I had for the venue. They even helped MC when the musicians time was up.
Totally worth it. If I lived in Vegas I would hire them to do all my events. Scheme was Awesome!

We used Scheme for day-of coordination, and we hired Rissa immediately after learning what the company had to offer, and because she was familiar with our vendors. The groom and I had handled nearly all of the planning and details. We just wanted someone to make sure the day went perfect. But even with all our meticulous planning, two days prior to the wedding, our officiant cancel on us. We were heartbroken, and worried, because we had trouble finding someone available for our date 5 months in advance. Rissa had about four replacements available, by that afternoon.
The wedding went perfectly, Rissa and her assistant took care of every detail, and they were ALWAYS nearby, helping me fullfill every silly detail I had planned. Thank you so much Rissa and Scheme Events.

From the groom:

So, I'm a guy, and a cheap guy, at that. I didn't want a coordinator. Didn't see the need for it. The bride did. She won, as usual. We met with Traci about day-of coordination services. I was unconvinced. A week before the wedding. I quickly changed my tune. Things started to go down and the bride called on Traci several times. Traci kept things on target and addressed issues we didn't know how to address. On the day, she was there from before we were until near the end of the reception. We had some minor snafus and a quick word with Traci fixed all of them. Guys (and ladies), they're worth it.

From the bride:

I was determined the enjoy my wedding day after everything that went into it, and having Traci and her crew there guarenteed that I could. Granted, I hired her as a "day of" coordinator, but they were there for us for far more than just the actual wedding day itself. Traci put together a day-of timeline prior to the event, and helped me to work out details that I wanted to make sure happen (i.e. talking with my photographer for me to make sure I got pictures of us getting ready), coming by my house in the morning to get some day-of details (programs, signs, etc), getting me a cupcake stand, and those are only a few of the many things they did for us. Not to mention, so many other little things that probably went unnoticed by me because they made sure that things went smoothly and that I wasn't bothered with details. They also went far above and beyond to help us the day before our wedding when our cupcakes were being delivered and the catering company was nowhere to be found! I wish I could have hired them for much more than the day of, but the help I had from them was worth every penny! I think the most telling sign was my now-husband's agreement of how valuable they were! We were both so glad to have Traci and Rissa helping us out!

PRICELESS! I cannot say enough. This was seriously the best spent money of our entire wedding, every penny. The girls from Scheme are absolutely amazing and I can not imagine how I would have put together the wedding without them. I wasn't sold on having a planner at first but my mom really insisted. After interviewing a few others who seemed very expensive and not very respectful of a budget I was recommended to Scheme. I met with Jacqueline first and could tell a difference right away. They are down to earth, easy to talk to and completely realistic. She was so patient when we changed our minds a million times....about everything. She listened to my opinions on vendors and where I wanted to spend money and save money, and most importantly I feel they were totally honest with us every step of the way about what we needed. They never let me get stressed out, which is hard to do since I am always stressed.

When I really saw the value and difference they made was the wedding day. I didn't take 1 phone call, set up one flower, organize ANYTHING. I don't even know how everything happened because I didn't do any of it! From setting the tables to getting us drinks to gathering our champagne glasses and odds and ends the next day...they were amazing. I truly can't tell you how special they made our wedding. Both Jacqueline and Tara gave us the best day of our lives with NO STRESS. AMAZING! DEFINITELY GO WITH SCHEME!!!

Scheme wedding coordinators are fantastic and fun, and they paid attention to every last detail, so I did not worry about a thing! We rented a venue where we had to do everything from scratch including ordering all of the chairs, linens, napkins, and renting bars and chandeliers. Scheme made sure everything was in place the day of the wedding and everything went perfectly! They recommended great vendors and went above and beyond in making the guests at our wedding feel welcome. More...

I did not get married; however, I did use Scheme Events as party planners for my 40th birthday celebration. I reside in another state and decided that I wanted to have my milestone birthday party in Las Vegas. Jacqueline and Scheme provided superb service to ensure that all of my wishes and dreams were met for an epic event. A hospitality suite at the Palazzo was transformed into my own personal nightclub and my 25 guests and I had a night to remember. I was thoroughly pleased with all of the suggested vendors and would recommend Scheme to plan any event for me!! These ladies do an excellent job and provided fabulous planning ideas! More...

Wow, where to start. I started planning our wedding on my own using http://theknot.com to plan most of it. This was around March 2011. August came quickly and I wasn't happy with the overall plan and flow of our wedding day. I didn't think we would have a good time and was getting overwhelmed. I found Traci and Scheme on http://theknot.com and I can't say enough good things about them. They met with us online and on the phone, figured out the best coordination package for us and explained everything they would do. I knew right from the start that our day would be better because they were running the show. We needed a reception venue just 2 months before our day....we weren't sure if it was possible. Traci and Scheme did it. We flew down in September and met with her and finalized everything. She spent multiple days with us explaining and showing us everything we'd need to have a great day. What a huge load off our minds. I can't imagine planning an event without some help and Scheme is one of the best in Las Vegas. I started to sleep better once I hired them and I don't regret it for a single moment. Do yourself a huge favor and hire them. They were with us from 12pm on the wedding day till the end of the reception(well after 10pm). Every single thing was taken care of. We got to enjoy every moment of our day because Traci and her team were in the background making sure everything was perfect. I can't say enough good things about them. More...

Weddings, parties, etc... and their attention to detail is second to none!
They are also very knowledgeable and make you feel confident in their abilities, and less stressed about 'The Big Day'!
Oh and they are all very, very.. NICE
You will never regret hiring Scheme to plan your event!

We hired Scheme for our in-suite reception, and they were worth every penny! I wish we would have hired them for longer! We had some packages that didn't show up and they even went and bought us new items on our wedding day. Our trip was pretty stressful the entire time, but as soon as we walked into the reception (which is what they handled), we could finally relax. Everything Scheme set up was perfect! Pretty sure I almost teared up even. If you are debating on hiring a coordinator or not, debating if it's worth the extra money, hands down they are. Do it! More...

I would never, ever have another event in Las Vegas without the help from Scheme. For brides that are planning a wedding in Las Vegas from out of state, I would highly recommend getting Scheme to help you put your day together. They made sure all of my vendors were on time and in the right place, they kept the day flowing, and just made sure that I had absolutely no stress at all on my wedding day. They are worth far more than they charge....so for anyone hesitating....take from a bride who used them....JUST DO IT!!! More...

You'd think that 2 INTENSE grooms, 2 YEARS of planning and probably 200 bridal magazines would have been enough to make our special day magic. But it was Tara from Scheme Events who took our dream wedding and pushed it over the top. Tara was one of the last vendors we decided to add, and in the end was one of, if not the most critical.

With all the work we put into planning our event, we did not feel we needed a wedding planner. What we did want was for someone to have our detailed checklist and to ensure that everything on that list got done at the reception site, so that we wouldn't feel that we needed to get their before our guests to ensure everything was the way we wanted it.

The "simple" 3 hours of pre-reception setup got expanded a week before when we found out that our florist couldn't pickup our ceremony flowers at the Wynn and move them over to our reception venue. So Tara stepped up and said she could take care of it.

And then when we found out, the night before the wedding, that the Wynn couldn't supply containers to move the flowers, Tara graciously offered to pick up the required supplies as well.

When we got to the reception, not only had Tara executed our vision in ways more beautiful than we could have ever imagined, but she was running the show. She had EVERY person working our wedding on their toes, and every time i'd step out to give instructions, someone would say "Tara's already taken care of it" or "Tara's got it under control". And any time there was the tiniest glitch, or something I wanted done differently, Tara was one step ahead of me, and had already gotten the required people to get in gear.

We only intended for Tara to take care of the set-up so she hadn't been privy to most of our plans or negotiations with other vendors. But somehow, with very little background info, she stepped up and became Jennifer Lopez from the movie 'The Wedding Planner'. She was working every angle of the reception as if she'd been part of the planning from the beginning and as if we'd had her booked as the full wedding coordinator all along. We were almost moved to tears so many times by how generous Tara was with her time and energy when she really didn't have to be.

And what's more, when our entertainer extended their set, Tara stuck around… at least for an extra 2 hours, despite me telling her repeatedly I knew she may have to go. She kept telling me not to worry and didn't leave until ALL of our key reception elements were completed (beautifully), from our performer, to our speeches, to our surprise first dance and cake cutting. She was there for it ALL and felt like our fairy godmother and a life long best friend all together. At the same time, she even managed to charm us, our guests and other vendors… I mean this when I say my husband and I talk all the time about how much we'd love to hang out with her. She truly made an impression.

When I wrote to her the next day and asked her to invoice me for the extra services, she refused. A final act of grace by a truly class act. I was a fool to think I could do it all on my own, and Tara made sure the magic continued all night long.

If I lived in the same city as Tara, I'd try to hire her for all of my business and personal events. I just hope I have the opportunity to work with her again someday. She's a master at what she does, a lovely class act and couldn't be more of a professional!

We worked with Rissa on our wedding in June 2011. We had a different experience than most working with Rissa because we had already selected a venue, caterer, wedding dress, photographer and had a clear idea of the style and decor we wanted for the wedding. We talked on the phone a few times (as we were doing a destination wedding) and talked about how we wanted the wedding to look and feel and then got down to work. She was very good at letting me feel like I was driving the car and she was navigating - which is exactly what I wanted. She handled all the interactions with the Vendors leading up to the wedding - confirming with them and getting me a vendor worksheet so I could keep all them contact information straight.

On the actual wedding day itself she was flawless. She picked up all my decorations from my room in the morning, and she got everything and everyone organized and in the right spots. There was a problem with our the show girls and what time they were to arrive, but Rissa took care of it before I even realized it was a problem! I also realized that I forgot to wear a garter about 5 minutes before the garter toss, and was about to send my MOH up to my room to get it, when Rissa pulled one out of her kit for me to use!

I think the last thing I would mention is that Rissa is easy to work with and has a great heart. It is easy to feel comfortable with her and she takes great care of her brides.

Thanks Rissa for a wonderful wedding - your the best!

I had a pretty crazy wedding in Las Vegas at Mix Restaurant on the 64th floor of Mandalay Bay with about 110 friends and family in attendance. Wedding day involved so many vendors, but went so well, that friends often say to me things like "wow you must have been a wreck on wedding day getting everything pulled together," etc. I usually respond with "Know what I did on wedding day? Woke up late, called my groomsmen, went and played craps, watched some baseball, had lunch, then we all got ready and I got married."

Making the day go so worry free was Scheme. I contacted them a few months prior to the wedding for day-of coordination and hired them after just a few email exchanges as they seemed to know exactly what I needed done and with two of them on-site for the big day, it seemed like a much better option for me than the typical one-person shops since there were issues to attend to for both me and my wife, we were staying in different towers at Mandalay and of course getting us into the venue without seeing each other was important since we weren't doing a first look.

Weeks prior to wedding day they had already gotten in touch with all of our vendors and introduced themselves to ensure there would be no communications issues or me needing to deal with vendors to make sure they'd work with Scheme in place of me for planning and details. They knew who needed to be where, when, what their responsibilities were, the order of all the events that day, what wedding party people needed to do what and when, and just the whole day's flow.

We had Jacqueline and Traci working our wedding and they were right on time day-of. They had two way radios to ensure they were able to stay in contact with each other regardless of location on the property. They dealt with everything from the wedding attire arriving back from being pressed to helping me get my shoes shined since I had forgotten. They made sure the floral arrived, bouquets to the girls, boutonnieres for the guys, even helped us pin them on. They got us up to the venue without the boys and girls seeing each other and then from ceremony start through the end of the reception they had every body doing exactly what needed to be done and when. They also helped guests with anything they needed, made sure my wife got the cake she wanted in between making the rounds with the guests, took care of the wedding favors and everything else that came up that day.

Could not have done it without them.

If you are thinking about hiring a day of coordinator DO IT. Scheme contacted and confirmed with all my vendors, produced a day of wedding timeline, and took care of any issues that came up the day of the wedding (and believe me somthing will go wrong). Jacqueline and Rissa even managed to keep my bridal party organized which was a feat since we each had 6 attendants and by the last stop on the photo tour nobody was feeling any pain. They were even nice enough to transport our photographer when there wasn't enough room on the double decker bus. Hiring Scheme was one of the best decisions of my wedding day. My only regret is not finding them sooner to help with some of the little details. More...

Jacqueline recentenely coordinated my September 4th, wedding. From the moment she took the job she went right to work. She remembered everything that I would never would have. We had boats arrive at the ceremony carrying both ther groom and bridal parties. Jacqueline and her walkie talkie made everything happen EXACTLY on time and the way we pictured it. It could not have worked out had we not had a professional. I am very hands on (some may say controlling) and I completely let her take over. I did not regret it. She handled everything with the venues and made sure everything was in order and on time. She was very nice, but she was very professional and told everyone exactly the way things would be done and what time they would arrive, leaving them no room for error, a trait in which I envy! She took all responsibility and would not let me worry about anything. I kept saying "I will do that the day of" and she would nicely say "no, you won't, I will take care of it". If I had second thoughts about a previous decision she would reassure me that everything would look amazing and that I had made the right decision. I had nothing to worry about the day of except for myself, it was great! I even trusted her to arrange the table settings and tent decorations and I could not have done it better myself. I cried when I saw the end result, it was soo perfect and beautiful. She truly made my dream wedding a reality. I would refer her time and time again!
