"Becca came highly recommended and I am so grateful that she was available to help me plan and coordinate my son’s bar mitzvah. We chose a venue that needed everything brought in. Becca helped make sure every detail was handled and had relationships with excellent vendors who transformed the space. We were cautious about our budget and Becca was helpful in locating areas where we could limit expenses and clear about areas where we shouldn’t. Leading up to the event, my calendar was busier than I had anticipated and Becca was able to keep track of details and make sure all the vendors were managed. Her work the final week before the event was amazing and on the day of the party, her staff were cheerful and competent and helped make the party run perfectly. We all had a blast and I owe much of it to Becca."
"Our daughter's wedding took place at the Braemar Country Club in Tarzana, CA. We hired Becca Halpin as day-off coordinator. My husband and I couldn't have been happier with our choice. Becca was a pleasure to work with. Every email and text were promptly responded to. She was very helpful with important advice before the wedding and contacted all of our vendors to make sure they knew she would be their contact person during the wedding. The day of the wedding she handled many details seamlessly and that allowed for us to completely enjoy the celebration without having to worry about anything other than enjoying ourselves and making sure the bride and groom and our guests had a great time at the celebration."
"Thank you again for helping to make Dylan's Bar Mitzvah so wonderful. We're exhausted but still basking in the glow.I was truly able to be present and enjoy the party with you and your staff there handling everything. And people can't stop telling me how great everything was and what a good time they had. "
"We absolutely loved working with Becca ! Helping us plan a bat mitzvah during a pandemic wasn't easy. RAH Events made it fun and stress free. [They] have top notch quality vendors and always had creative solutions as we pivoted from an in person event to a backyard micro party with virtual components. [Becca] went above and beyond during the event itself to ensure that everything ran smoothly and didn't leave until everything was set back in its place. We are grateful for Becca's guidance, suggestions, and feedback and would use her again in a heartbeat."
"I’m not sure how we would have organized Olivia’s bat mitzvah without Rebecca! She helped us find great vendors, plan for the event and most importantly, took care of everything day of on site. We just enjoyed the party as if we were guests! Rebecca was thoughtful and responsive and I hope we get to work with [her] again!"
"Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything you did to make this clueless family ready for our big weekend. We got so many nice notes telling us how much fun people had - and people also told us in conversation how fun, comfortable, and happy an occasion it was. I know that *I* had a wonderful time myself. We hope you'll be able to work with us again when it's Ben's turn!"
"Rebecca was the perfect event planner for us. She made everything run smoothly without being at all imposing. All of her suggestions of vendors turned out to be great. We wanted a party that felt intimate and personal, and the final result was exactly that. We couldn’t recommend her more highly."
"Thank you sooo much! The day went without a hitch and there's not one thing I would have changed. Seriously, you calmed me when I really wanted to panic many times!"
"Becca was a great comfort to us as we planned our virtual event during the height of the pandemic. Her relationships with local vendors, recommendations for every detail no matter how small, and calm, humorous demeanor put all of us at ease during a planning process that was not easy! On the day of our event, Becca was our main point of contact for all of our vendors, both in person and virtual, and handled everything flawlessly so that our family could focus on what mattered most- our child and this significant milestone. I can say with confidence we could not have had such a wonderful experience without her, and I would heartily recommend her for any simcha you may be planning."
"We have experience planning and executing events but it’s just not the same when it’s our own! Becca helped us stay organized before and during, and handled vital communications with vendors and guests. Her support made a critical difference for our hybrid multi-site celebration - two physical locations (morning & afternoon, with different guest lists) plus Zoom & Facebook. Throughout it all, Becca kept us on track with a smile that belied her clear focus on what mattered."
"Rebecca does a great job with bar/bat mitzvahs. She is very well-organized and has a good sense of what "kids these days" are doing. She is very responsible, helped us keep an eye on costs, and knew all the small details that make everything run smoothly. Hiring her allowed me to enjoy the day!! She offers different levels of service, from "day of" up through planning the whole thing."
"It went beautifully! So smoothly, Kim had her eyes out for when the park ranger needed to step in, the flow was lovely, and it was absolutely magical. Thank you for all your help, thoughtfulness in ensuring we were well taken care of and in good hands!"
"Thank you for everything...really... You make me want to have another event so I can use your full services. You're wonderful.""
