Tony and Julia Rushmore at the Rehearsal Dinner

“When Steve and I first met Tony, we had a vision of what we wanted our wedding to be like.  Tony took the idea, conceptualized it and made it come true!  We were organizing our destination wedding and Tony orchestrated and made sure every single detail was in place.  He was truly an orchestra conductor.  Some people say that they don’t remember their wedding day because they are too preoccupied with the logistics.  Steve and I are proud to say that we DO remember every single aspect of our wedding because thanks to Tony, we had no trouble having a blast dancing, eating,  drinking, and catching up with all of our friends and families.  Thank you Tony for making the most memorable day of my life picture perfect.!”

Tony, Ez and Flo on Wedding Day

Tony White is nothing short of the Best.

The best decision we made during our 16 month wedding planning process was to work with Tony. He was an unwavering support to us throughout the entire process and we would never have been able to create such an incredible event without his guidance and assistance. After our first meeting with Tony, it was evident that he treats each wedding with the care and consideration one would only expect when planning their own event and neither of us had any doubt that our wedding was going to be exquisite. I cannot count the number of times he sent us an email in the middle of the night to ask a question about an element we had not even considered yet. He paid careful attention to every detail and not only did we treasure our wedding, but each of our guests felt as if they were apart of our magical and cherished occasion. His sincerity was made palpably evident throughout the day as numerous guests inquired if Tony was our family member or friend.

Rachael and Tony On Wedding Day

If you want an organized, stress free, classy event, Tony is your man.  My husband and I were married at the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay in September 2008.  Tony was our wedding planner and sanity for this larger than life event.  He made wonderful recommendations for all the vendors involved and our wedding could not have turned out better.  I did not stress at all knowing that Tony was “in charge”.  He will give his honest opinion and brings class to the events he plans.  He even shows up in tails the day of the wedding!  Tony really did move mountains for us.  Our wedding involved a lot of coordination with my parents (who do not live in California), my husband’s family (huge family), and my husband and I’s busy work schedule.  We live in Marin and I did not find myself driving down to Half Moon Bay unnecessarily.  When Tony and I had a meeting, the checklist was checked by the end!  I could not recommend Tony’s expertise enough for planning any type of event.  I know, with full confidence, the same would be said by my parents and husband as well.

Tony, Michael and Lacy On Wedding Day

When Michael and I first met Tony we immediately knew we had made the right decision.  From day one he was instrumental and making our vision a reality.  He worked well with all of the vendors and set-up all of our meetings with them.  His years of experience and personal relationships made the process very enjoyable for all parties concerned.  On the wedding day he masterfully orchestrated our ceremony and the transition to the reception was seamless.  The entire production was absolutely amazing and our guests are still commenting on how “perfect” the entire event was.  Our family and friends have been to many weddings and the general consensus is that our wedding was the most well organized, beautifully decorated, and fun wedding they have ever attended.  We would certainly recommend his services to any couple looking for a great experience with a very personable and professional coordinator.  His passionate approach to accomplishing our vision was both impressive and

I contacted Tony White, upon excellent recommendations, less than two weeks before my daughter’s July 31, 2010 Wedding to be a Day of Coordinator.

How fortunate that Tony should be available! He served as much more than a “Day of” Coordinator. We met ten days before the Wedding, and from that moment on, Tony was completely hands on.

At the first meeting he listened intently to the plans and organization thus far concerning the wedding. He wanted to help with every aspect. Our meeting was at the reception site and he quickly became acquainted with the hotel coordinator and her role. Because he is knows the industry so well, he was very familiar with our florist, photographer, band and other vendors and immediately contacted and coordinated with them. He also troubleshot when I expressed difficulty in reaching the company that was to provide the transportation for our guests from the hotel to the church and back to the reception.   

All the while I felt Tony, while taking charge, was always very respectful of our wants and the tone we had set for the wedding. The bride and groom arrived just a week before the wedding and their first meeting with Tony was just five days before. Again, while he worked hard at coordinating, he worked equally hard doing things the way the couple wanted.

Tony attended the Wedding Rehearsal at the church the night and worked effectively and effortlessly with the church coordinator. On the Wedding Day Tony was phenomenal. He did so much in front of and behind the scenes. When there was a serious problem with the transportation, Tony worked very hard to rectify the situation. Because of this difficulty, the church ceremony was delayed as was the reception. Tony was wonderful coordinating and creating a new timeline with the hotel staff.

The wedding was everything we hoped it would be – a joy filled day celebrating family. We were all able to truly enjoy this beautiful day because Tony was there making sure everything went seamlessly.

Tony was a joy to work with. He is a gentleman and very professional. I am most grateful that he listened and honored what we wanted. Quite simply, Tony White is wonderful!

  Tony White has our warmest recommendations!  We met Tony White and had him be our wedding planner for our wedding at The Ritz Carlton at Half Moon Bay.  Our October 2009 wedding was beautiful and completely stress-free, thanks to Tony.  Tony is totally passionate and dedicated to his art – the art of crafting weddings.  He’s the type of professional you always want on your side: he cares tremendously about the final product he puts out.  Having Tony on board was so helpful when picking vendors because he is so well known in the industry – he always had a ton of recommendations, and the best thing was, everyone also knew Tony.  That translated into vendors giving us some good service and their best work.    

The beauty of having Tony run our wedding really showed during the actual day of.  By the time the wedding day arrived, there was NOTHING to do, except to just let the event unfold.  None of our friends or family were running around making sure the florist got there, or checking with the DJ to make sure they were setting up on time… Tony handled all of that behind the scenes.   Tony made sure that that the event ran smoothly on schedule.  And the best part?  We didn’t even knew what that schedule was!   (Well, okay, we sort of did, because we met with Tony to plan the timeline several weeks prior to the wedding, but once it was set, Tony took over.)  We just enjoyed what we were doing until Tony came and told us what to do next.  My husband and I were totally relaxed, happy and worry-free.

The Ritz at Half Moon Bay is where pop stars from Taiwan fly to get married.  Baseball players get married there, as well as East Coast bluebloods.   In contrast, we were not exactly celebrities, and plus, we had a pretty small wedding.   Although Tony was handling some high profile weddings during the same time, he never made us feel small.   Whenever we e-mailed him or talked to him, he was always gracious, always attentive.   Tony’s enthusiasm, and energy was contagious.  Tony was warm, funny, super nice… and he was just a joy to work with!  Not only were we happy with our wedding, our wedding got glowing reviews from all our friends and family.  Thank you, Tony, for our beautiful wedding!
