“The best decision I have ever made was hiring YSD Events for the wedding planning and production of my fairy-tale wedding at The Breakers in Palm Beach, Florida. From the first phone call with Brad & Justin, I knew they were “the ones!” Everyone on the YSD Events team is unbelievably talented and professional. Working with them throughout the entire year has been absolutely amazing. They made my wedding dreams come to life! Everything was phenomenal- from the exquisite flowers and centerpieces to the incredible attention to detail, to the seamlessness of the ceremony, no stone was left unturned. There is no one else I would have chosen to help plan my dream wedding. I can’t wait to call Brad & Justin again to create another dream event!”

"Brad and Justin from YSD Events are amazing! We hired Brad and Justin seven weeks before my daughter's wedding. I had to fire our previous planner because she was a disaster! We were so incredibly fortunate that YSD Events had our date open. They had a Friday wedding that weekend but were available for our Saturday wedding.
I wish that I had found Brad and Justin at the beginning of our wedding planning process. They were incredible! Things were a mess when they took over from the previous planner. I felt less anxious with every day that passed while working with them. They are so thoughtful, calming, and incredibly organized. I think that I thanked them daily because I knew that they would guarantee that my daughter's wedding was spectacular and it was!
They worked so hard with all of our vendors and I know that the vendors were relieved and grateful to be working with them!
I could go on forever with my review. All I can say is that Brad and Justin were attentive, caring, and organized. When I called them with a question or concern, I always found they were one step ahead and had already taken care of it without mention. Their timelines for the day of the wedding were incredibly detailed. Every minute was accounted for! We were so fortunate and grateful that we had Brad and Justin as our wedding planners for my daughter’s magical wedding!"
- Ann Marie H
“You all were amazing. The team you assembled to take us all through this journey and magical ride were amazingly kind, sweet, patient, and loving people. We love our handsome and talented boys! We can’t wait to see all the photos and film. Everything went perfectly and I can’t wait to lay in bed in my pjs and experience it all over again! Safe travels. Until we meet again…”
- Janet Gretzky
“My wedding was absolutely everything I have ever dreamed of and more. Most importantly, during the 18-month planning process, I never felt an iota of stress. This is because of Brad & Justin's absolute professionalism and attentiveness. While I am sure they had plenty of other clients, I felt like I was the only one. Brad & Justin executed all my vision with 100% accuracy and more - they thought of tiny details that made everything flawless and perfect that I never would have considered. I am sad that our wedding is over and our time with Brad & Justin is at an end (10-year vow renewal maybe?!). I cannot say enough positive things about our experience with Brad & Justin. Snap them up as fast as you can!”
- Liza R
“YSD Events planned the wedding of our dreams, above and beyond our expectations, and gained us two dear friends along the way. When looking for a wedding planner, we wanted someone with excellent taste who shared our aesthetic, and who we could really vibe with. Brad and Justin are that and more. Planning our wedding with them was an incredibly fun, stress-free, and creative process. They have amazing connections (literally everyone and anyone answers their calls) so no matter what we wanted; everything was just a phone call away. They expertly managed all vendor relationships, contracts, and proposals to perfectly deliver our vision - and personally went above and beyond to source special pieces of decor that we couldn't find anywhere else. Everything went perfectly and our day was truly drama and stress-free. When I walked into our rehearsal dinner, ceremony room, into cocktail hour, into our reception... I gasped and cried happy tears each time because I was so blown away. I am infinitely grateful to have worked with Brad and Justin... we love you guys SO MUCH!!! What can we plan next?!”
- Kate M

“I cannot say enough good things about YSD Events! My husband and I are resident physicians living in the Northeast and we were planning a destination wedding in Palm Beach, Florida. Due to our busy schedules and distance from our wedding venue, we really needed a dependable planner to help us pull it off. Unfortunately, we had to fire our previous wedding planner a mere 7 weeks before the wedding due to multiple issues. I was extremely worried about the wedding and was in a bit of a panic about what to do without a wedding planner. Miraculously, Brad & Justin had the day of our wedding free in a busy spring wedding season and we hired them immediately.
Brad & Justin swooped in and quite literally saved our wedding. They ensured all of our contracts with our vendors were still valid despite the last minute switch in planners and immediately became our liaison for our vendors taking control of all communication. This allowed me to focus on work and the “bigger picture” of the wedding. Above all, they were in constant communication with me and my mother so I knew everything was under control. An enormous weight was lifted off of my shoulders once we had Brad & Justin as our planners. YSD Events made me feel like our wedding was the only one they were planning. They truly cared about my happiness and demonstrated that in a million different ways.
One example had to do with our wedding cake. With all the issues with our previous planner, our wedding cake maker fell through. About a month before the wedding, my husband and I were making a last minute trip to Florida to finalize details. I had mentioned to Brad and Justin that the wedding cake tasting was one thing my fiancé was really looking forward to. Brad and Justin were able to get us a truly last minute cake tasting with an amazing cake baker who stayed open late for us in order to do the tasting. We ended up hiring her and had an amazing groom’s cake and wedding cake!
The day of the wedding, Brad & Justin lived up to their promise of making sure everything was perfect. From the champagne handed out to our guests on arrival to the last song, every moment of our wedding was perfect and reflected the vision I had for the wedding. They made sure everyone (including our large bridal party of 9 bridesmaids and 10 groomsmen) was where they were supposed to be when they were supposed to be there. Every detail was taken care of. I did not have to worry about a single thing and my husband and I were able to fully enjoy our wedding. I cannot thank Brad & Justin enough for everything they did for us. If you are considering hiring YSD Events for your wedding, DO IT! They will make your happiness their priority and they will seriously move mountains to do it.”

“YSD Events was hired to assist our non-profit organization with a 20th Anniversary celebration. They were bringing ideas and solutions to the table before they were even hired. We appreciated their dedication to ensuring that our event would stay within our tight budget yet meet the expectations of the formal gathering that was expected. They designed and executed a beautiful event that is still being buzzed about today.”
- Kay P
“Five stars is not enough for YSD Events! Brad and Justin are truly exceptional, have impeccable taste, and are more organized than anyone I've ever met. There's no one better to trust with your big day. They pay attention to every detail and have problems resolved before you even know they exist. We had a very large and complicated wedding in NYC and these guys couldn't have been less phased by everything we threw their way. From last minute requests to quirky additions, they always went above and beyond to make sure that we had the wedding of their dreams. Our entire weekend was the most magical time of our lives and it 100% would not have happened without YSD Events. From the first planning meeting until the last song of the night, Brad and Justin were on top of everything. They were totally present and there for whatever any of us could have needed. I can’t recommend them strongly enough, especially if your goal is to have a more personalized and unique experience.”
- Grace H
“Justin & Brad of YSD are the best of the best! They are high touch event planners that are there for their clients every step of the way. Their teamwork and positivity make wedding planning as effortless as it can possibly be. I would recommend YSD to anyone planning a wedding, whether a destination or local. No detail is too small and they think of everything to help make your day as special as can be.”
- Kelsey G
“Brad and Justin know exactly what they are doing in every situation. My nonprofit was blessed to have their generosity in not only planning our 20th Anniversary Gala in NYC but also helping plan a last-minute event in Washington, D.C. Brad and Justin handled our chaotic event with grace and a level of expertness that cannot be surpassed while always wearing a smile. When we were in a rut, they always had solid solutions to help problem solve. I cannot recommend them both enough for the work they are experts in. From after parties to galas, they know their stuff!”
