Absolutely love, love, love RCED!! The team was responsive, friendly, creative and flexible. When I first approached them, I knew the theme and colors I wanted. I provided them with pictures of things I liked and they came up with a storyboard for our wedding. I wasn't sure of what our budget was at the time and because I didn't want to miss out on potential opportunities to have everything we wanted, I asked them to draft up a proposal consisting all of the elements we liked. They came back with it and I was beyond surprised at what we were quoted. I was ecstatic and relieved that their prices were affordable -it was also great to know I didn't have to compromise on what I wanted because of cost. I enjoyed the whole journey in working with them and not once did I ever doubt their abilities to deliver a beautiful wedding. They were just as stoked to work with us, which is a plus. If given them chance to work with them again, I would in a heartbeat. I am trying to have my parents have a vow renewal just to work with them again!!! You will not be disappointed!!!

If I could describe Karen Nichols in a phrase, I would say: she is like a fairy godmother and a creative connoisseur all in one! She was not only a pleasure to work with throughout my entire wedding planning process and extremely diligent on the day-of festivities, but she was always available and ready for anything. She was also very considerate of budgetary requests and out-of-the-box creative ideas. If you want something truly magical and unforgettable, there is no one I would recommend other than Red Carpet Events and Design! Why trust my opinion? I am a luxury bridal gown designer based out of New York and I had a blue unicorn at my wedding! Her ability to deliver on my concepts and also elaborate on my aesthetic vision is something I appreciate and find extremely inspiring.

Dear Karen,

This letter to you and your fabulous staff is long overdue! As you know, I have been planning corporate events since the first hotel, with meeting space, opened! The last 40 for Nike, for very high profile athletes. My final words to any of the team (hotel or DMC) involved is that when all is said and done I just need to hear 5 magic words.... "This is the best Nike event ever."

This time, much of it having to do with Red Carpet events, I heard it over and over and over again! What a great win...you do the work and I get, way too much, of the credit!

My career has been filled with great events & adventures around the world, from Barcelona to Costa Rica...none, NONE were better than what your team put together and executed in Lake Tahoe. From inspiration to design to implementation, sheer perfection!

With all of this said, you have created one big problem....I have, again for all 40 years, suggested that we not go back to a same location two years in a row and we haven't....until now! They are almost demanding it!

So, Red Carpet staff....how you gonna top 2016? I know the answer is we will. I also know you WILL.
With sincerest thanks to all of you, from all of us.

Karen Nichols and her team at Red Carpet Events and Design provided excellent management of logistics and seamless execution of events for the IBM Smarter Cities Challenge projects in Reno and Fresno. This allowed the IBM teams on the ground in both cities to focus on what we were there to do, produce a road map of recommendations to make Reno and Fresno Smarter Cities. We could not have done the projects without her superior support. She was calm under pressure, while always providing professional service to our IBM teams.

The San Francisco 49ers Foundation has been the lucky beneficiary of the tremendous talent and creativity of Red Carpet Events over the past few years in support of our largest charitable fundraiser – Winter Fest. Each year, the 49ers Foundation hosts Winter Fest at the Resort at Squaw Creek and Karen and her team transform the ballroom into a spectacular and festive environment for our guests to enjoy a sit down dinner, live auction and dancing. Their décor enhances the room and supports our fundraising objectives. We are proud to partner with Red Carpet Events and look forward to continuing to work with them well into the future.
