Comments from our clients...

Terri, you are incredible. Thank you for making Val's dream wedding come true.  Using
our ranch as the venue seemed daunting, but as it started to come together we knew we were
in good hands. When the big day arrived everything was better than we had imagined, thing flowed
smoothly and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful wedding for Val and Jorge.
We very much appreciate your help and hard work.  Thank you, Terri!

Terri Neher was a pleasure to have as our wedding coordinator.  Her depth of experience and confidence, combined with her unassuming presence and easy-going nature make her very easy to work with and an excellent event coordinator.  From the first day working with Terri, she was genuinely open and receptive to our preferences and vision, while at the same time providing a variety of her own ideas and the invaluable perspective that comes with experience.
Terri worked closely with us in planning our event to ensure that all aspects of our wedding would be successful.  On our wedding day, there was an impending storm, and our wedding was outdoors with no indoor backup venue.  Despite this uncertainty, Terri remained calm and collected, and we could rest assured that Terri was doing everything possible to make our guests comfortable and make the event a success.  During our wedding, Terri was always available should we have any questions or concerns, but was unobtrusive and never in the way.  We are happy we chose Terri, we enthusiastically recommend her for any event planning or day-of coordination that you might need.
Cody and Josee J.   April 2015

To say that I recommend Terri would be an understatement.  When I first booked my wedding at Union Hill Inn, I was very nervous about the size and complexity of the property.  I called Terri to talk about her services and prices, and immediately got the most amazing vibe from her.  She was warm, clear, and confident in her abilities.  She told me all that she offered, and all that she would do, and I thought, for sure, she's going to be out of my price range... but to my elation, she was budget friendly.  We basically booked her on the spot, and I have never looked back at that decision and thought, "I wish I had done things differently"... she was my one, constant source of reassurance. Any question I had, fear I had, anything I was struggling with... I knew, that I could email her, and within the day, I would have a clear answer that would ease my fear and give me clarity on what to do.  
When the day finally approached, she was everything she said she would be and more. 
Her team was helpful, sweet, warm and moved fast!  
The day before my wedding, we set up, and she worked so great with me and her team to make sure the room looked exactly like I wanted.  When I realized that I had accidentally under ordered chairs, she was on the phone with the company, making sure we got more ordered, and a plan B in place just in case.  
The day of my wedding, I barely noticed Terri.... which is really extraordinary... she was very busy, and working like crazy... but me as the Bride... had no idea of anything going on with the back end stuff. 
I was truly able to enjoy my day and everything went off without a hitch.  
Do yourself the favor, ease your stress, and let Terri take care of your needs by booking Events Extraordinaire!

Hi Terri,
We cannot express enough our deepest gratitude and appreciation for ALL of your help coordinating Stephanie & Kurt's Wedding Day.  From our initial meeting, through the planning, setting up, rehearsal and wedding day, you have been amazing.  Each step was calmly and efficiently calculated and coordinated.  You answered all of our questions and did not hesitate to provide helpful hints.  You definitely know your stuff.  We will recommend you over and over again.  Everyone is complimenting us on such a beautiful ceremony and reception.  Thank you again for your professionalism and patience.
Doug & Susan Swift     Jan. 2015

Hi Terri,
Garry and I would like to thank you for all of your help with Katy and Matt's wedding. 
All of us were so pleased with the entire weekend and things would not have gone so smoothly without all of your help.  The beautiful venue, the cooperative weather and spending the weekend with family and friends certainly will be remembered for a long time.
Thank you for sharing the pictures of the venue and the chapel on Facebook and we will share our pictures as soon as we get them back.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family and once again thank you for all of your help in making this a special weekend for all of our family.
Sincerely,   Garry and Jill Fisk.    Dec. 2014

Terri, thank you so much for all of your hard work, you truly made our event come to life and I can't thank you enough for being a part of our special day...everything went perfectly :) So sad our time together is over, we will definitely have to keep in touch :)
Erica and Chase Nelson     Dec. 2014

Terri is amazing at what she does. Her guidance and expertise helped relieve so much stress and helped us create the perfect wedding. After finding our venue we only had 3 months to put our wedding together. We were a bit overwhelmed with all the possibilities and lived about 6 hours away from the venue.  From the initial meeting through following up with us after the event Terri's organization and professionalism was exactly what we needed to help it all come together.  She made it possible for us to actually enjoy the process instead of stressing over all the details.  She should be the first person you call when you start planning your wedding.
-Mariellen and Blake Ghavami     Nov. 2014

Dear Terri,  Thank you so much for everything you have done to make our day special.
We appreciate your talent, kindness, generosity and awesomeness more than you know.
We hope our paths cross with you again one day.
Many Blessings, CJ and Tami E.    Oct 2014

I can't imagine our wedding without Terri. We thought we had all of the little details down, but with all of the intricacies of our venue, we realized we had no idea how the day was going to run smoothly while we were so distracted by the desire to spend time with our loved ones and the excitement of getting married. As soon as we met Terri, we knew we had nothing to worry about. Her amazing powers of organization put us at ease and it was apparent that she knew the venue inside and out. As expected, our big day went beautifully and seamlessly; everything happened exactly as we wanted and we didn't even have to think about it. I would recommend Terri to anyone who wants to relax and enjoy their wedding day knowing that someone very capable has it all under control. 
Cheers,    Nikki and Darren   Aug. 2014

Terri, Thank you for all of your great work with the wedding.  It was
such a pleasure working with you.  We couldn't have done it without a great
wedding coordinator like you.
Love, Jessica and Brandon G.      Aug. 2014

Terri, Thank you for making wedding even better.
Couldn't have done it without you!
You are a blessing!
God bless, Ken & Jaemi      July 2014

Terri, Thanks so much for being a great wedding planner.
We really enjoyed working with you.
Take care, Lisa and Kat      July 2014

Without a doubt, the best money I spent on my wedding! From the start, Terri was warm, confident in her ability to pull off a flawless wedding, and more than helpful! She was proactive, listened to our desires, and executed our vision perfectly; and I didn't have to worry about a thing, day of!  She thought about things I wouldn't have, and really has a knack for organization and detail! I strongly recommend hiring her and her assistant no matter what your budget; she's worth every penny (although very reasonable)! I couldn't have made it through without Terri!
Danielle S    June 2014

Terri, Thank you so much.  Words can't express how much you helped.
All of your support & calmness made everything go so smoothly.
You were the best wedding planning decision we made.
Love, Jim & Alice A.     June 2007
Terri, Thank you so very much for Being You! You have helped to make this day a wonderful memory for me! Love, Lisa B.    June 2007 I am pleased to recommend Terri Neher for any upcoming events.
She is smart, friendly & willing to make sure the party is a huge success.
I think you will be pleased to have her plan a wonderful event for your friends & family.
Debbie H.    May 2003

Dear Terri,  We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the services you provided for us. Because of your exquisite personality and conscientious way of organizing, our wedding day was beautiful. We cannot thank you enough for the personal touches and caring you put into our wedding.   Additionally,
our family & guests commented on your professionalism and accommodating personality.
Without reservation we will recommend you to friends & family for your services.
With love & appreciation, Damon & Dayna C.    Aug. 2005

We planned an 80th birthday party for my husband, we knew the dates but the arrangements were unsolved,  that was until we contacted Events Extraordinaire! They were creative, resourceful and enthusiastic.  It is a pleasure to recommend Events Extraordinaire to anyone who anticipates having a special event.
Marjorie G.     May 2004

Without Events Extraordinaire my wedding day would have been a total disaster! I honestly think I would have been a bald bride! I had no idea the time I would save and the stress I would avoid with your help.
So thank you for keeping me from pulling all my hair out!
Kelly B.    Oct. 2003

 Terri and her team helped make my daughter's wedding reception come together beautifully. Terri's assistance throughout the entire planning process really helped to keep the stress level down.
The organization and attention to detail was more than I had expected.
Kari G.    June 2008

We had the pleasure of working with Terri while planning our wedding. From the first time we met with Terri, it was clear she was focused on ensuring our wedding day was nothing less than amazing. Terri spent time getting to know us on a personal level, while making sure she truly understood our vision for the big day. When the day came, Terri was fabulous! She was quick to fix the little problems that arose and made sure the event was enjoyable for all of our guests.  She worked extremely hard to make certain our day would be unforgettable.
Our wedding day was magnificent thanks to all of the help Terri provided.
 We would highly recommend her as a wedding consultant, or for help with any social event. She is fun to work with and her creativity and desire to please those around her make working with her a delightful experience.
Annie & Kenny H.    Aug. 2008

We just want to thank you for all of your help - you did a wonderful job, and
made our wedding stress free!
Shannon & Adam O.    June 2009

Thank you, thank you, thank you! The wedding was perfect!  We've heard nothing but rave reviews! You were both delightful to work with. You kept your cool and were so patient with all the Crazy before the wedding. 
Your expertise and care during the rehearsal and wedding day was a blessing to us.
 Thank you, Sibyll O.   Aug. 2009

We can't thank you enough for your help in creating a beautiful wedding and reception. Everything went smoothly and turned out better than we could have imagined.  Sara and Eddy were so happy, and we received countless compliments about he beautiful site, and the helpful and professional staff.  Your coordination efforts were not only profession, but lots of fun for everyone involved.  We felt so supported and nurtured in what could have been a scary experience.
Kathy and Allan R.    Sept. 2009

Thank you so much for all of your help at our wedding and for making our special day less stressful! Without your help we would not have had the time to enjoy ourselves!  We will recommend you to everyone we know!
Thanks again, Laura and Dave K.    Sept. 2010

and that we could relax and enjoy the day.

With love, Maryal and Jeremiah F.    May 2012

Terri Neher from Events Extraordinaire was a big contributor to the success of our daughter’s wedding day this past September. We are from the Bay Area and the wedding was held at Union Hill in Sonora. The distance could have been a challenge, but because of Terri’s expertise and knowledge of the Gold Country and all its vendors and facilities, the wedding came thru with flying colors. She was there for the rehearsal and all day on the day of the wedding, making sure everything was flowing smoothly. Attention to even the smallest details was exercised.
We highly recommend her services.
Michelle and Sam Koka      Alameda, CA        Sept 2012 

I love to plan events and initially thought I could do everything for my wedding all by myself. I soon realized that I would need some help so that I could actually enjoy my wedding day!  I knew I needed a day-of coordinator and Union Hill Inn (our wedding venue) referred us to Terri with Events Extraordinaire.  Terri ended up being so much more than just a day-of coordinator.   We met with Terri about 5 times in person and corresponded countless times via email - she is extremely responsive and knowledgable.  Terri helped us through the planning phase, during the execution phase, and she was essential during the wedding rehearsal and wedding day. She even helped us by shopping around at thrift stores and picking up some items - all above and beyond what we could have ever asked for. She truly provided a stress-free wedding day! Terri was the reason why our wedding was seamless and perfect. We constantly had people tell us that our wedding was one of the best that they have ever been to and we can thank Terri for being the backbone of the day. Terri went above and beyond our highest expectations. Her services were worth 10x more than what she charges.  Thank you to Terri! We couldn't have asked for more!
Steph and Jeff K.   May 2012

Thank you for all that you did and dealing with me in a constant panic! You were a great help I am very glad
that we had you there and you made everything beautiful!!!
Megan and Wesley M.   July 2012

Terri is the Events Extraordinaire!
A gorgeously smooth and lovely wedding day we had due to having Terri the extraordinaire by our side. Her expertise and her down to earth personality really made for a wonderful experience. I never understood until I got married how important a wedding coordinator is, a person who sets your day, your time and allowing you to  truly enjoy the day of your dreams.  Thanks again Terri!
Danielle and Ty    Sept. 2012

Thank you so very much for all of your help with Katrina and Glenn's wedding!
You were amazing, and we could not have done the wedding without you.
Thank you for all of your advice and council.
Thanks again, Ed and Jayne F.    April 2013

Terri,  We can't thank you enough for all that you did to make our daughter Karlie's wedding day so special. It was just a beautiful day and so stress free.  You handled everything from the rehearsal to the reception professionally and with great care and kindness. You have no idea how much we appreciate it.  Karlie and I both pay very close attention to detail, and so did you. 
Thank you for your hard work!
Kim and Kevin B., parents of bride, and Karlie and Blake G., bride and groom           Aug. 2013

When I came to my wedding, I was beyond excited to plan one of my most important days of my life! I love planning parties, organizing and's fun. But when it came down to the day of my wedding I couldn't be more relieved that Terri was there. From the meetings we had before, the fabulous vendors she was able to recommend and knowing Union Hill Inn like the back of her hand...made our day PERFECT! Absolutely nothing went "wrong" everything went as hoped for.
I would recommend Terri, and have, for any event
- Ashley and Mike Vergara       Oct. 2013

Terri,  I just wanted to thank you for your assistance with coordinating our special day. You were extremely attentive and listened closely to my requests, focusing your energy on projects you knew to be the most stressful for me. It was wonderful having you available to answer questions or deal with concerns leading up to the wedding and even nicer having you there the day of the wedding so that I could relax and enjoy the day instead of worrying about what to do next. I really appreciated removing the burden of herding people around from my guests, so that they too could relax and just have fun. It was as stress free of a day as any bride and groom could ask for. Thank you so much.

Sincerely,   Gretchen and Jerry Gilleland        March 2014

Thank you for everything!! We had an amazing time!!
Sierra and Tony B.       Feb. 2014

To whom it may concern,
Planning a large wedding and reception can be intimidating even to most experienced party hostess but thanks to Terri Neher and her Events Extraordinaire team, my daughter's wedding at Union Hill Inn went off without a hitch. Terri is extremely organized, focused and very experienced.  She is intimately familiar with the Union Hill Inn venue and its owner, knowledge that was invaluable to the seamless flow of the wedding day...... The wedding and reception were flawless, largely due to Terri Neher.
She is worth her weight in gold!  If you are looking for a wedding or event coordinator I cannot recommend Terri Neher enough.
 It was most definitely money well spent!
Warm Regards,  Heidi Ward               Apr. 2014

Hi Terri,
Thank you for sending these pictures over! They are great.
Also, thanks for all of the help during our wedding weekend. We couldn't have done it without ya!  Everything was taken
care of very professionally and the day was absolutely perfect for us.  We appreciate everything you and Celeste did.
Thank you!
Brittany and Louis S.        May 2014

Terri, Thank you so much for all of your help, with everything!
My wedding could not have survived or gone on without you
and your gift of planning.
Sabrina and Nick        Mar. 2014

We couldn't have had our big day with out Terri's help. Terri isn't just a day of coordinator she is a life saver and wedding coach. She was highly accessible and knowledgable about the local area of Sonora. She even lent you her own possession to make our wedding that much more special. Terri  called and emailed me to check in when she hadn't heard from me in awhile. She is very on top of everything and is HIGHLY AFFORDABLE. Terri has a crew of assistants you can also add on to help manage your big day for a small cost. I would recommend doing this as you can never have too many extra hands on deck. We were very pleased with Terri's patience, ideas and voice of support. Terri looks out for you before and after your big day!
