We used Tonya Hoopes to help plan the wedding for our daughter. Our daughter’s wedding was Labor
Day Weekend at the Solitude Resort in Utah.
The wedding was a two-day affair with the first day being a “traditional” western ceremony and the
nd being a Hindu-Indian ceremony. Both ceremonies had receptions associated with them and after
parties. One family lived in New Hampshire, one in Georgia and the Bride/Groom in New York. We
would respectfully suggest that the degree of difficulty for coordinating all elements for this wedding
Tonya was easy to work with, flexible when it came to scheduling meetings and accommodating on
reschedules. She was a wealth of information on a variety of topics. She was outstanding in helping
negotiate issues with the Solitude resort staff.
Tonya displayed a very capable eye for design. From the invitations, to the table settings Tonya helped
create a vision for the wedding “brand” without much assistance or direction. She willingly incorporated
suggestions to pile on the core brand from both sides. We were grateful to her for this overall vision.
Wedding weekend was especially challenging with two different outdoor sites for the ceremonies (one
up the mountain) and then an outdoor reception tent that had two different themes. Tonya’s team of
employees capably made sure items were where they should have been when required. We can’t
understate how complicated this element was with both families dreaming up all sorts of details to
make the events of the weekend memorable for everyone.
Finally, a word on fees. Simply put, Tonya’s fees for services were fair.
We are happy to provide further details if desired.

e process. From our first call I knew that she was going to help create an incredible wedding, but it far exceeded any of my expectations. She took all of the stress off the entire planning process, gave me real and honest feedback, advice, and support along the way. One of my favorite things about working with Angela is that she really took the time to get to know us and what our vision was so that in every check in or vendor meeting we were aligned and felt comfortable making decisions whether they were big or small. On our wedding day Angela made everything run so smoothly and flawlessly that I had so many guests come up and tell me how wonderful she was! I genuinely could not have planned or executed my wedding without her and I hope that every bride (and couple) can experience a wedding planning process as seamless, stress free, and fun as we had!

entire process. I contacted Tonya based on some online reviews and she replied immediately to set up an initial call and start our process. Tonya very quickly adapted to our vision and design and executed it flawlessly even in the short time that we worked together on our event. Our event consisted of 4 different pieces over the course of 24 hours and the execution of each one was everything we were hoping for for our wedding weekend.
Our wedding planning included a large family with multiple opinions and several points of contact. While we thought that this may pose a challenge to any potential planner, Tonya and team took it in stride and made it a point to keep everyone apprised of any developments or information. Emails and phone calls were answered within 24 hours maximum (more often even less time) and the entire team was beyond patient with us; able to easily schedule calls around everyone’s business (even at the last minute). We truly felt like the entire time we were working with them that we were their only client (even though that was hardly true); the level of dedication given to us was unbelievable.
One thing we were worried about with any planner was the ability to throw a great event while sticking to our budget, but Hoopes Events worked very hard to make sure everything that we wanted was available to us at a price that we were comfortable with. Tonya and team did an outstanding job sticking to our vision and getting us everything we wanted within the initial budget that we had laid out. They were honest and transparent about pricing, gave us excellent advice, and advocated for us when we needed their help.
Overall, Hoopes Events staff are excellent listeners, great communicators, and will make sure that no detail goes forgotten. Both Hoopes Events and their partner Fleur and Stems made our event beyond perfect in very little time and made it seem easy.

Because we live out of town and are very busy with our jobs, we made only two trips to Salt Lake in advance of our wedding (and only had two total days of planning on the ground there). She gave us excellent vendor referrals. Coming from out of town, we had no idea where to start and couldn’t take the time to meet most of our vendors so we were a little nervous, but everyone we hired on her recommendation was excellent. She also provided a lot of knowledge and expertise when it came to rentals, and really helped us stay in our budget by giving us options and suggestions at different price points. We had a pretty unique hybrid Hind-western ceremony. Angela was familiar enough with the Hindu wedding traditions and local Hindu priest to provide helpful advice on that front as well. Finally, I’d like to add that we shopped around for wedding planners and Hoopes offered very competitive pricing.

From our first phone call with Tonya to the wrap-up conversations after the event, our entire experience with Hoopes Weddings was fantastic. Our daughter had mentally planned her wedding for years, so began the planning with lists of ideas and ...
desires. Tonya and her team listened and advised so that the end result was everything she had envisioned! Tonya helped monitor costs and repeatedly found ways to get us what we wanted for less than our first options came in at. Her can-do attitude and calm demeanor helped us all enjoy the entire wedding weekend! We highly recommend Hoopes Weddings!!

Mediocre service. I was planning to keep my poor experience to myself; however, it recently came to my attention that my photos are being used on this website, without my knowledge or permission, and that makes me very angry. I recently had m...
y two year wedding anniversary, but I still fume to myself about my experience with Tonya when I think about my wedding day.
Invitations: they forgot to include the return stamps in the invitations, which is just sloppy.
Bartending: we went with her recommendation for bartending service, and that was a huge mistake. The lines were SO long. The "bartenders" were practically children, who did not know how to use a keg, people were waiting forever in line to get a cup full of foam. They piled trash next to the drink stands.
Water: there was none! It was 105 degrees and there wasn't water accessible for people to drink. This is an example of the reason you hire a wedding planner, so you don't have to think about these things.
Wedding favors: we paid money for macaroon party favors for the guests, and when I went inside at the end of the night, they were just sitting on a table in the kitchen. Was I supposed to put them out?
Your experience may be different than mine, but my impression was that Tonya was in way over her head.

ultiple events over the course of 4 days and Tonya helped us through every step.
Tonya is extremely competent and good at her job. She immediately understood our vision and gently steered us in the right direction. One of the things we like best, is her understated nature and her strong network of professionals. Instead of trolling website for hours looking for the right vendors, Tonya gave us several suggestions for local vendors she trusts and works with, she facilitated the introductions and let us decide who we felt best with. Once the decision was made, Tonya followed up on all the contract and logistical matters. One of the best things I can say is that we barely spoke with our vendors after the initial calls, yet everything was perfect on our wedding day. I don’t know what went on behind the scenes, but it was magic.
Tonya and her team were present and extremely active the month-of, week-of and day-of. On the Thursday of our wedding weekend, there was a fire at the hotel where our 30+ rooms of guests were staying. By the time Tonya called us with the news, she had solved the problem. All our guests moved to a different hotel and the rest of the operation was seamless. I cannot stress enough, how amazing a ‘pivot’ like that is. It takes a real professional to solve a problem that big by 10:45am.
Our wedding was seamless, the timing was perfect and the ballroom was beautiful. She and her team are wonderful and we highly recommend Tonya Hoopes and Hoopes Events.

esponse but she's very fast at replies during the payment times.
2. Flowers are very very late. We are getting ready at a hotel across the street. She doesn't even bother to deliver it there and drop it at the base of the ceremony site before the ceremony starts. As a result, my bridesmaids and I didn't have any pictures with our wedding flowers before the ceremony.
Good thing we didn't do first look: Otherwise, I will be without a bouquet. Her florist did a wonderful job but Hoopes didn't deliver it on time.
3. Tonya overcharged us on labor, chair cover and sashes. It doesn't match with her initial contract. Luckily my new husband is equally pissed and helped me get 447$ back from her two weeks after the wedding.
4. Her team was very bad at lighting. They were supposed to hang these tea lights from chandeliers. They only did like half of the chandeliers.
Also the backdrop lighting didn't cover the whole area like she promised: only 50% the most.
She did refund me at the end but it's the service we are looking for and it's the wedding we will never do again. My backdrop pictures turned out ugly.
5. She is wedding wire selected vendor, one of the reasons we decided to go with her. But if you notice, a lot of her reviews are from people that only did one review. If you know wedding wire and use wedding wire, most user/bride did at least 3-5 reviews to get shutterfly photobook or other gifts. (something to be aware of)
