I decided to work with Tonya from Always Perfect Special Events because my friend referred her to me. In the beginning Tonya was so nice and had all of these big ideas for my wedding. She liked that I was doing a low key wedding and said that she had so many ideas that would keep me at my budget. Everything was going great until the months leading up to the wedding. She DOES NOT return calls in a timely manor, expect it to be at least 1 week before getting a call back. She will explain the contract but at the final bill she will add things that were not discussed previously. I thought I was getting a chef to prepare my food but when I went into the kitchen it was actually her cooking the food. She didn't order enough cupcakes so I spent my morning calling every bakery in the area and those cupcakes turned out to be better then the ones she had ordered. The area where we got married was supposed to be heated, she said she was 100% sure there was heat and there was not (I got married on a March morning when it was 25 degrees outside). It has now been over a month and I still have not received my deposit check. I contacted the hall myself and they stated they had sent the check to her over 2 weeks ago. After the wedding I was trying to get a hold of her for over 2.5 weeks and it wasn't until I stated I was going to get a lawyer that she finally called me back stating that she has no idea where the deposit check is. Needless to say this has been a huge headache for me and I hope that no one has to go through this on their wedding. I hired her to take stress away from me but in my opinion, all she did was add stress.

We recently had a rather large family Christmas party that was planned by the owner of Always Perfect Special Events, Tonya McNees and I can't say any other than WOW. It was perfect, as her name states. The food was so delicious all of my family was asking for to-go containers. The venue was beautifully decorated by her and her staff. She paid special attention to ever detail that we asked of her. I would highly recommend her services as she definitely took the work completely out of the party and I was able to enjoy the entire night with my family. Her service was simply put-priceless. Great job.

I was at that same wedding in Lake Geneva and actually what was writen was very incorrect. The bride hired her own DJ and he was awful but that had nothing to do with the event planner, the bride and groom only paid for one hour of open bar so it did look like they ran out of drinks; however it was because the bride and groom did not want to spend the money to pay for the drinks for their guests. I asked the event planner why the drinks were only for one hour and she was happy to inform me of the situtation. As for the food, I thought the food was great and so did everyone at my table. My finance and I asked for her business card and she just did our wedding and it was great. The caterer actually told us, that the previous bride, the one that is listed in the review, bounced her final payment check to Tonya and even so Tonya did the right thing and paid the caterer in full-now that is class. When I asked Tonya about the wedding noted that we attended, noted in the lousy review, she replied in a very professional way, that there were issues with the final payment; however she never spoke a bad word about the bride and groom who ripped her off actually for over $8,000 according to the caterer. I am sorry to have to post this review; however I do not feel it is right for her to get a bad and unjust review because some bride had champagne taste on a beer budget. Tonya McNees, did our wedding and we would and have recommended her many times over-she is a class act and any bride and groom would be lucky to have her as their coordinator/planner.

The owner of this company, Tonya McNees, is a SCAM ARTIST!

I attended my cousin's wedding in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, and it was planned by the owner, Tonya McNees, scam artist. The food was terrible, the DJ was a jerk who did not play the music they asked him, the photographer was unavailable for the wedding, and they ran out of drinks immediately.

It turns out that all of the caterers and people associated with the wedding, according to Tonya McNees, had never been notified of the wedding, even though she had taken the bride and groom to visit those vendors. Tonya McNees, scam artist, went to her own terrible vendors and bought terrible food, a bad dj, and ripped the bride and groom off.
