Not only do I have the pleasure of sharing our wedding design studio with Downey Street Events, but I also LOVE working with them! I always know that when working with DSE the design aesthetic of our weddings will be of the highest level, their staff incredibly professional, and always every-single-detail carefully thought out and executed. Kelsey and her team make it a dream to plan your wedding and count myself fortunate to work with them.
Hiring Downey Street Events was the best decision we made for our wedding. They, and the vendors they work with, are extraordinarily professional. Their designs are sophisticated and fresh. Every detail was perfect. My wife and I wanted numerous unusual components in our wedding, but we also wanted a beautiful, sophisticated event. While we could somewhat articulate the “mood” that we were going for, we didn’t know the specifics of how to achieve that aesthetic. Kelsey, our planner, took our abstract ideas and translated them into detailed, high quality plans and worked with our vendors to steer the project toward our vision. All of the vendors that Downey St recommended were excellent. Downey St has worked with several partner vendors extensively so they know their personalities and working style. It really is a world away from looking at reviews on The Knot. Meetings with Kelsey were extremely organized. We were sent an agenda beforehand and follow-up notes with action items afterward. Nothing fell through the cracks. Whenever we emailed Kelsey with a question or concern, her response was always timely and detailed. Downey St handled all contracts with vendors and kept a comprehensive, up-to-date budget. Our mock-up was perfect. There were just the right number of options and all of them were beautiful. We were able to make nearly all of the major rental decisions in one session. There were a couple of areas where we wanted to deviate from Kelsey’s professional opinion. In each case, she made sure that not only were our choices incorporated seamlessly into the event, but that they felt intentional. At the end of our wedding, along with all of our personal items from the wedding Downey St had sent over to our hotel room, they included an adorable basket full of local treats and champagne. We felt like royalty. Honestly, for us, the wedding would have been worth it just to get to plan a cool event with Kelsey and Downey Street. In the end, our wedding exceeded our expectations. We will remember it forever.
I have had the pleasure of working with Downey Street Events on a number of weddings as a caterer and the experience has always been stellar. Their team is professional, experienced, organized, stylish and very easy to work with. Lauren, Kelsey and the Downey Team are among the best in the business!
Graceful and professional, Kelsey and her team at Downey Street bring a level of elegance and self-assurance to each event, which has made working with them an absolute joy over the years. Their attention to detail and planning has made every wedding we've done together stress free, beautiful, fun, and successful. I highly recommend Downey Street!
So much talent in a single team! I have been so consistently impressed by the quality of the team’s design skills, professionalism, clear communication, careful coordination, and beautiful execution of their events both large and small. Kelsey and her team are as kind as they are talented and organized, making Downey Street Events a company that I would highly recommend for designing and planning your next event!
