Gwen Pett- Mother of the Bride 2014

"Like many people, I thought having a wedding planner was an extravagance we couldn’t quite budget it, but at my mother’s insistence, we decided to meet with Liane. And like most things, mom was right. After that first meeting I was convinced that Liane would not be an extravagance at all, but an absolute necessity. When my baker canceled one month out, I emailed Liane trying not to panic. In less than an hour, she had a recommendation for me and had even called that baker to let her know our situation. The cupcakes were a huge hit with the guests! During the entire planning process Liane was a true professional; I always received prompt replies to my emails, and her experience helped me turn my not quite complete ideas into a beautiful reality. The day of was gorgeous, everything I could have wanted! Liane helped run everything so smoothly that neither I nor my mother ever had to leave the celebration to solve a problem. When the complicated bustle on my dress refused to stay bustled, Liane was able to fix it no problem at all. I really don’t think I could have had such a beautiful, stress-free wedding without Liane’s help. I’ll be recommending her to every bride I know, Thank you again Liane for helping to make our day so perfect."        
Lily Helzer 2013
The Galena Fish Hatchery

"We had initially planned on not using a wedding planner, but half way through realized how much work goes into a wedding. Hiring Liane was a choice I, and my whole family are so pleased we made. Her service added a huge amount of value to the outcome of the wedding and to the fun we were able to have. Her contacts, suggestions and experiences are priceless...the discounts and relationships she has established really can cut down major costs....her ability to implement those 'finishing touches' really meant a lot in making the event beautiful. I highly recommend Liane!! and have no doubt you will be more than pleased with the result!"

"As the mother of the bride, I was the wedding planner for my daughter, Trisha’s wedding in May 2010, in Virginia City, NV. When I first told my husband I wanted to hire a wedding coordinator for the day of the wedding, his first reaction was “how much is this going to cost us?” But after we decided to hire Liane, he realized that hiring her was well worth it (for my stress level and for his!)
 As soon as we hired her, she contacted all of our vendors to introduce herself. She worked well with everyone. She was so incredibly organized~ from being at the rehearsal to setting up tables with the caterer the night before the wedding. The rehearsal and wedding day went so smoothly that we couldn’t have asked for a better coordinated event.  I highly recommend hiring Liane to anyone, no matter what the cost, just ask my husband!  She was worth it!"
 
"As photographers we have worked with Liane on many occasions and without fail she always puts on a fabulous event. Rain or shine she always on her toes making sure that everything goes according to plan, keeps a tab on the time, and makes sure all vendors do their part to make your event run smoothly. For just a little money, PLEASE hire a wedding planner. Liane will make sure your wedding is fabulous and for the bride and groom she is a great "day of" stress reliever!"
 
"We hired Liane for Day of Event planning for our Virginia City wedding. Liane from the start went above and beyond just the day of event. She literally saved the day when I, the way too busy bride, forgot about planning the rehearsal dinner. While we were driving from Washington to Virginia City, I texted her about my mistake and she jumped into action
and found a dinner location and a chef to cater the event! Sounds easy but in
Virginia City, finding somewhere to have a place for a rehearsal dinner on literally two days notice, is no small feat.  Liane also made sure every detail of our wedding went off with out a hitch, even the details we never thought of. She fixed all the glitches in my planning like the professional she is. She was a major reason our wedding was so wonderful
and we cannot thank her enough.  As a bride, she made sure that I did not
worry about anything on the big day. Liane, we love you and you made our
day perfect."
 
 "Our wedding day was absolutely perfect, and exactly how we wanted it! We definitely would not have survived without you!"
Naomi and Corey Botma 2013

" Thank you for everything you did for our wedding. You were so skilled in helping us figure out what we wanted and were such a relief and a help in every way.  We really appreciate all your skill and effort!  We love you!"

"Thank you so much for all your help during the wedding!! You were professional, efficient, and above all else wonderful to work with! We couldn't have made it happen without you!"

"Liane has been a savior in planning our wedding.We were literally a step away from heading to the Justice of the Peace and then we found her. All of our stress was instantly gone as her experience, professionalism, and sound advice put us totally at ease. The mountains of questions were answered. The "this is impossible" feeling was gone. And we are on our way to a wedding that will be memorable and special for us."

"Working with Liane McCombs for my wedding was an absolute dream come true! I was working and there was no way I could have pulled it together without her! I gave her my budget and she was able to put together food, flowers and a beautiful cake-everyone there was very pleased and impressed. She and her staff had everything well organized and my wedding was everything I'd ever hoped and wished for. The evening was perfect and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone who wants the "complete package!" Well done, Liane-Thank you so much!
Joan Wulff
 
"Liane McCombs planned my wedding and it turned out even better than I had imagined. She was very detail oriented, she listened my ideas and gave me great insight and vision as well. She was very cautious with my budget and always found the cheaper alternative, without making the reception look inexpensive. She coordinated all of my various meetings and was always on time and ready to plan. She was the perfect person to work with and was always positive and energetic. She also worked through any minor or major issues without any hesitation and without making me feel stressed. She even helped the alterations lady re-bead my dress due to a shortage of time! I highly recommend Liane McCombs for planning any wedding. She turned all my hopes dreams into reality and gave me the wedding of my dreams. I am positive that she will continue to do so for her future weddings."
 
Hi Liane, I just wanted to THANK YOU so much for being our coordinator for Trisha and Jon’s wedding. You were awesome! Everything was awesome! Everyone had such a good time and complimented us on every part of the wedding.
 
"It was certainly a pleasure to have worked with you.  Great to have a true professional handling the details. Knowing that there is an experienced coordinator makes a wedding day run very smoothly. I have placed your information in my file and will certainly be pleased to be able to pass your name on to interested couples. I look forward to working with you again in the future."
Rev. David Beronio
 
"I met Liane for the first time at a wedding in August.  I was very impressed with her positive attitude  and how flawlessly everything ran that day. If you want someone who takes care of all the details, creates an environment where the vendors work as a team, and give your day an elegant flair, Liane is the one for you!  I have rarely seen someone who is as passionate about doing a great job In my twelve years of doing professional videography. Highly recommended!"
Howard Coleman/ Distinctive Video Productions
 
"I worked with Liane for my wedding on May 30, 2010. Liane and her staff were great. She did a great job the day of the wedding and I worried about nothing. It took a lot of stress off my family and I, knowing she was there taking care of things, which is exactly why I hired her. Thanks for all your hard work, Liane."
Teresa Roeschen Brown

"PicBox Photo Booth company did a wedding at Edgewood Golf Course and Liane McCombs was the Event Planner. She did such a wonderful job. She was so friendly and seemed to truly enjoy what she does. PicBox Photo Booth would love to work with Liane McCombs any chance we get!"
Dustin Espinulda
 
"Liane was wonderful. When I had first talked to her I was so stressed out! Trying to plan a wedding and take care of a baby by yourself is not easy. She helped me feel a bit more relaxed by the end of our conversation and was so easy to talk to. Both my husband and I were very comfortable around her. I thought I was asking for the impossible but in the end my day was better then I could have imagined. Thanks Liane for all your help and time you put into our wedding it was more then I could have hoped for."
Lori and Mike Logie

"I was recently married on July 23rd and hired Liane to help. She paid such close attention to detail and made sure everything looked perfect. She was the perfect liaison between me and all the vendors and ensured that everything on my wedding day went smoothly. In sum, it was an amazing and stress free day. THANK YOU LIANE!"

" Hiring Liane was the best decision we ever made. Her prices were reasonable and worth every penny, and then some.  Liane had grace, skill and class. We had a few tricky situations with our priest and Liane spoke up and helped work with all involved to solve the problem. Liane also made sure our ceremony and reception flowed smoothly and went according to plan.  Our parents loved her, and said all agreed she was by far the best investment and decision we could have made. Without Liane I would have been stressed out, with her, I was able to relax and enjoy the party, which flew by. My husband also said he felt much more at ease with her around.  Bottom line: we LOVED her, and if ever throw another large party we'll be contacting her. Brides, if you do one thing to help you relax for your big day- hire Liane."
Edgewood, Lake Tahoe

"Liane and her team helped us in making our Lake Tahoe destination wedding an unforgettable event. She was consistent in keeping us informed and aware of our timeline. She also helped us manage our priorities, re getting and contacting the right vendors. She also made sure that all vendors were in the loop, even though some of our vendors were outside her circle. Best of all, she managed to make things happen without bothering us, such as finding a bake shop that created my dream wedding cake when our caterer could not do it. And also, coming to my rescue when my florist sent the wrong bouquet, she ordered a new, beautiful bouquet that was delivered to my suite just in time for me to go to the ceremony! Perfect! With Liane's help our wedding was spectacular, and my guests, friends and family were all very happy! And we have pictures to prove that.:)
My husband and I will forever cherish that day."
Kathleen Juco
The Hyatt at Incline Village

"Without Liane we know our day would never have run so smoothly. She kept everyone on point, and I never would have been so calm if it hadn't been for her. Liane's confidence and demeanor kept me calm and we knew she had everything under control. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
Sabia & Renee Armstrong

"Liane, was an absolute pleasure to work with!  I hired her as a "day of" wedding planner and I don't know what I would have done without all her help!  She was there for me to answer any questions I had from the day I booked with her to the day of my wedding.......that meant the world to me.  My wedding day was more fabulous than I ever imagined it to be thanks to Liane's creativity and help. I relied on her to make sure everything was taken care of on my wedding day so I could just "show up".  With my "Type A" personality, that was a big task for a wedding planner to take on.  She AMAZED me by going above and beyond to make my day the most special day ever.  THANKS LIANE!"
 
"We hired Liane to be our day-of coordinator for our daughter's wedding at Edgewood Tahoe.  Best thing we ever did!  She was reasonably priced, efficient, pleasant to work with.........she made the whole event go perfectly!  I would highly recommend her and advise anyone planning a wedding to hire, at least, a day-of coordinator.  Our event was small but had we had a larger wedding I would definitely had hired Liane to coordinate the whole thing!  So well worth it!  Thanks, Liane, for making the day perfect for us all!"
Peggy Sullivan
Mother of the Bride
 
"Planning your wedding is a very important process, it takes time, effort and a lot of concentration not to miss the smallest detail, because you just want a perfect day for you, your family and your friends.      That is why, having a professional wedding planner like Liane McCombs on your side, sure makes your wedding day a memorable experience. This summer, I had the pleasure to work with Liane and it was very comforting to me, as a photographer, to know that all the wedding details were well taking care of from the little things to making sure the bride and the groom were having the time of their lives. Liane is very knowledgeable, well organized and energetic and all that, just to make the couple more relaxed and totally enjoy the unique experience of their wedding day. I am looking forward to working and collaborating with Liane many times in the future."
 
"Liane McCombs has a unique talent in making each bride feel extra special and stress free on her wedding day. There have been several wedding receptions held this year at Piper's Opera House in Virginia City in which Liane McCombs was the planner/coordinator. Each wedding she was involved with went off without a hitch and the bridal party and guests were able to relax and take away so many special memories. Liane has the ability to make each bride's wedding a one of a kind, elegant, exceptional and overall fun event. She is by far the best wedding planner or coordinator I have had the pleasure of working with. When brides choose Piper's Opera House as the venue for their reception, as Executive Director I feel confident in recommending Liane McCombs. I know a bride will receive quality service at a budget friendly price."
Lori Barrington
Executive Director Piper's Opera House
 
"Liane is such a joy to work with. She is very self-confident and has many good ideas.  I only needed help with a cracker/cheese type table before the wedding reception (200 people) and Liane even took me shopping, always considerate of what I wanted, and was a strong presence in getting the reception hall set up for the “event”.  She is very artistic and has lots of good ideas. The table was artfully prepared and looked lovely and was appreciated by all.  She was very confident in organizing the “team” who set up the reception hall which she did because it needed to be done!  She is a definite self-starter!
I would highly recommend you hire Liane for all your wedding needs, big or small!"
 Mary Umphress

" Liane McCombs was outstanding as our Wedding Planner and went above and beyond what we had payed for and what she had been contracted to do for us. Her experience and professionalism is what set her apart during the event and it was noticed by many attending. We only wish now that we had contracted her to do everything from day one. We would recommend her to plan a Wedding or any Event you might have and know you will appreciate her being there on such a special day. Liane, you were great!"

 "I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to have the fabulous Liane McCombs as my wedding coordinator. She is by far the most articulate, organized person I have ever met. I gave her ideas as to what I wanted my dream wedding to be & she immediately began gathering ideas and
turning my dream into a reality. My wedding was nothing but perfection
and I know it's because Liane was behind each & every facet of my wedding-from the catering to the set up, invitations & budget, Liane was there every step of the way to make sure that every facet of my
special day was in place & perfect. Liane has a mind full of wonderful ideas, organization skills that are top- notch & a heart full of love for each couple she works with. I will refer her to ALL my friends because my experience with her was nothing short of incredible."
 
"It is my pleasure to refer Liane McCombs to anyone as an amazing wedding planner. She has helped me with all of out four children's weddings, She is very talented and knowledgeable when it comes to decorating, catering, and anything that has to do with large events such as wedding receptions. Her organizational skills are phenomenal. She pays attention to the most minute detail. Anyone would be well served to have her as a part of their special event."       
Diane McCombs
 
"I had the pleasure of working a wedding a few weeks ago in Reno with Liane. She did a wonderful job of keeping me and all the vendors informed of upcoming events. She is a very pleasant person to be around, and her organizational skills are very impressive. I look forward to seeing her at more weddings I work, because I know that she will make it fun and easier for everyone else."

"I have had the pleasure of working with Liane McCombs as an event coordinator on several different occasions. They were all weddings. Weddings with china, glassware, large guest lists, weather conditions and event locations with "unique conditions."
Everything always went off without a hitch, perfectly timed and organized. Her attention to detail is over the top. She has a gift of being able to calm even the most stressed-out bride. She also has great decorating ideas that are appreciated by the clients and guests alike.
I look forward to working with her and feel confident referring her to all my clients that are in need of an event coordinator."

"Liane was such a great help on the day of the wedding. I was lucky enough to win her day event services and after only meeting up with her a couple times before the wedding she was able to help my family execute the perfect wedding for me and my husband. She helped keep everybody and everything right on schedule and was there to fix with any hiccups along the way!"

"Liane McCombs helped make our Jewish wedding an absolute dream come true. She was easy to work with and made sure that everything turned out exactly the way that my fiance and I wanted. She overcame enormous challenges at every step of the way, coordinated wonderful vendors and was absolutely in tune with what I had envisioned my special day to look like. Thanks to Liane the ceremony, photographs and every single detail were picture perfect. Months later, my in-laws are still telling me that ours was the best wedding that they have ever attended. It is with genuine pride that I would recommend her to anyone looking for simply the best wedding planner around. Thank you Liane!"

"I have had several opportunities to work with Liane McCombs in the past. Each time she has been very professional. I am an owner of Isabel's For The Love Of Cake- Bakery, Sparks, NV. I make the majority of wedding cake deliveries and I know how critical it is to arrive and set up each cake on time. Liane makes sure this is never an issue for us! I recently attended a wedding where I was a guest and Liane was the coordinator. The parents of the bride had worked tirelessly to make sure their daughters wedding went well. With the help of Liane it was a beautiful day for all who attended! The father commented how much he appreciated her help and would definitely recommend her to all of their friends!"
