Here and Now Events helped with decorating my children's baptism . Raquel was very professional and nice, making it easy to coordinate and bring my vision to life. I am very happy with how everything turned out and also grateful for the great service. Although there were some issues with the locale we used, Raquel was able to accommodate her hours and time accordingly which was truly a blessing for us. We highly recommend there services and will look to work with them again in the future.

I want to first start by saying Raquel is AMAZING! I would highly recommend Raquel for a memorable event and wonderful planning experience. I had the honor of planning my younger sister's bridal shower in NJ. Because I live in NC and the challenge of planning an event from out of state, I decided to enlist the help of a planner. I engaged in my own "RFP" process searching then scheduling time with about 6 planners in and around the Tri-State area to ask them questions about their services, process, price, etc. I have to say hands down even in that part of the process Raquel was the most responsive, professional, and attentive to all of my questions. She even sent over ideas and pictures based on our first discussion before I decided to work with her. It was an easy choice choosing her out of everyone else I vetted.

Raquel paid attention to EVERY detail for the bridal shower. She was an excellent planner and partner in the process. She was again very responsive and organized both during the planning and on the day of the event! She handled invitation and RSVP management, provided a wonderful recommendation for a caterer, provided decor, flower arrangements, you name it! Her skills and services were exactly what I was looking for and needed to make the day super special for my baby sister! I can't say enough great things about the whole experience, which would have been so much more stressful if I hadn't found Raquel.

If you are looking for an experienced, professional, creative, detail oriented, super sweet planner for your special event, call Raquel today!
Raquel - Thank you for everything! You made my sister's special day everything she hoped for and I couldn't have done it without you!

I'm so happy I went with here and now events.  Raquel and Zu are very professional, organized and patient.  Raquel is very nice and always pleasant.  She helped make my son's birthday party memorable for our guests.  Aside from that she also helped me organize my birthday gathering. She has a wealth of knowledge and network connections when it comes to event planning.  Her rates are reasonable and the quality is great.  I highly recommend here and now events.

I've partnered with Raquel on functions and she is beyond detail oriented to say the least. She is extremely communicative, she strives to make her clients happy and satisfied which makes leaving your important gatherings to her an easy decision. If you're looking for a seamless, smooth party planning experience, Here and Now is who you'll want to contact.

Raquel organised our twins first birthday in October. She is a fantastic event organiser, professional and organised. She obliged to our never ending demands till the last minute. She went to pillar and post to look for a magician for the event when almost everyone was booked considering it was the Halloween week. She added things to the goody bags till a day prior.
Our twins were very cranky and gave both me and my husband no time to interact, she single handedly managed the event made sure the kids at the party are having a gala time, and adults are having a great time too.
She had organised a brilliant face painter who was a hit at the event.
The decorations were fabulous, it was very detailed all the tables had a popcorn boxes with their names on it. I loved it
Very very enthusiastic, full of energy and always smiling.
Loved the decor, the pop ups, the photo-booth studio(she was actually encouraging the guest to take pictures and writing in a little scrap book).
We couldn't have chosen any other organiser for such an important day of our lives.
We have already booked her for our twins second birthday too:) hope she makes the event as memorable as she did for this one.

Raquel has put together many events for my husband and I, including our engagement brunch and dinner and our destination wedding.  Every event was different and customized to our needs and the needs of our guests.  We were very happy every single time.  Every event was filled with love and happiness.  She was able to help us through all the hiccups that we had planning our destination wedding.  We would give ten stars if we could because without her we would have been completely overwhelmed with all the parts involved in planning a destination wedding.  She was so professional and organized in every step of the way and we couldn't have chosen a better event planner.

Raquel coordinated our wedding at the Dumbo Loft this past November and it was above and beyond what we expected. My husband and I had a unique vision in mind and she nailed it! Our wedding was very DIY and from beginning to end she worked with us meticulously to make it happen! On the day of the event , Raquel and Zushanna were a great team and executed the ceremony and reception of our dreams! They are professional,courteous , efficient, and they really care about their clients. We highly recommend their event planning services!
