Tom & Elizabeth

Parents of the Bride

We had a wonderful experience with Faith Ferguson Productions.Faith and her team assisted in streamlining a daunting task. With our home as the wedding venue, there were many more details and moving parts that don’t exist when hosting a wedding at an established event space. Faith understood our needs, as well as our decor ideas, and liaised with all the vendors, keeping them, as well as us, on track. The result was a beautifully orchestrated day, and our daughter and son-in-law had a memorable storybook wedding that was also enjoyed by our family and friends. The event would not have been the success that it was without Faith Ferguson Productions.

Father of the Groom

​As the wedding party waited anxiously for instruction in the holding area, we noticed the sound of a motor in the distance approaching swiftly! When the golf cart reached the crest of the hill at top speed, my attention was immediately drawn to Faith. With her clip board in hand, she exited the cart barely allowing it to stop. Without hesitation she announced, “Let’s get this show on the road!” I knew immediately that we had hired the perfect wedding planner! From the early planning stages, all the way through to the end of the reception Faith had the entire event under control. Faith, I want to thank you and your team for making our kids’ day so special. Your attention to detail is second to none. Anyone who reads this, and is thinking of hiring a wedding planner, should go no further. I promise you, allowing Faith and her team to plan your big day will be the best decision you make. She is guaranteed to create the day all little girls dream about! Thank you again!

Judy & Brian Mahoney

Bride & Groom

Where do I begin?! I am not exactly sure where; however, one point I can make for certain is that I wish I had contacted Faith sooner than I had in anticipation of the wedding. Brian, my now husband and I had a whirlwind romance from meeting in November 2015 to the engagement in May 2016 to the wedding on New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2016.

I reached out to Faith with less than two months of the wedding date. Brian and I had done most of the wedding planning up to this point. We had secured the major vendors for our destination wedding at the United States Military Academy (USMA) at West Point, NY, and sought Faith Ferguson’s event planning services to “pull it all together” and to “get us across the finish line”. And, that she and her team did, and did it quite well.

Faith was honest, forthcoming and readily negotiated her services based upon our needs. She and her team were highly responsive (via email and telephone) despite it being during the peak of the Christmas holiday season.

Faith was easy to communicate with, and was not only professional, but pleasant and presented a calming attitude when such was required at highly stressful moments.

The welcome bags were better than I anticipated, and included an event timetable for the weekend. I provided simple guidelines and Faith and her team took charge which put my mind at ease allowing me to focus on other priorities. They were the classiest looking bags on display behind the reservations desk at The Thayer Hotel where guests were arriving for two other weddings.

The seating charts and framed table card numbers were exactly as I imagined. Several guests commented on how nice the framed specialty drink signs were which were in remembrance of my late father.

Faith and her team assisted with the coordination of all wedding weekend events. She was personally in attendance at the rehearsal the evening prior as well as the wedding and reception. There were a total of five events over the course of the wedding weekend, and Faith’s team was transformative in its success.

Juliana Zeolla

Bride

Faith and her team were great! She made planning a wedding stress free and easy. I would tell her an idea that I would have and she would run with it and make it better than I had even planned. She knew exactly the kind of wedding that I wanted and made my wedding day amazing.

Faith was at my wedding and made sure everything was set up and went as planned. I got to enjoy my wedding and not worry about a single thing. I highly recommend Faith for anyone needing a wedding planner.

Nicole Rosser

Bride

Words cannot express how truly grateful Kyle and I are for you and all that you’ve done for us in the process of planning our wedding. You made everything truly beautiful, and honestly executed the most perfect wedding day for us. We cannot begin to thank you enough for the support, guidance and organization along the way, as well as everything the day of. We could not have asked for a more perfect day, and everything came together beautifully.

We are so thankful for all that you did, even down to the smallest detail. I don’t know that I could have dreamed for the day to have been better than it was.

Thank you again for EVERYTHING! I hope that we will see you soon, and this time, in a more relaxed environment for you!

Tony Landolfi

Father of the Bride

I want to personally thank you for everything you and your team did to make Juliana and Joe’s wedding the most perfect outdoor wedding ever! We were all concerned about how this unique concept of outdoor casual would merge with upscale catering and service. Well, based on feedback from everyone in attendance, including my 103 year old grandma, we pulled off the wedding of the century! Your attention to detail, especially the last minute changes necessitated by the weather report, were exceptional. I would also like to thank you and Dawn for your hard work during the reception which allowed my family to totally enjoy ourselves without having to deal with any issues during the event. You did a fantastic job!

Rebecca & Michael

Bride & Groom

Michael and I can’t thank you enough for all of the hard work you put into our wedding day. We had a fantastic time and we couldn’t have been more happy with everything. I was so nervous to see everything, but it all came so beautiful! You are your team worked so hard at making everything I wanted a reality and I truly appreciate it. They were on top of everything and even being an assistant down, stepped up and took over any work the other had been working on. They were on top of every detail and the wedding day was spectacular!

Jackie Fromer

Bride

Faith was overall a pleasure to work with. Her dedication as our wedding planner and her attention to detail were essential and so helpful in making our wedding a success! Faith made herself available whenever we had questions and also let us know how imperative it was that we connected with her throughout the wedding planning process, even with our busy schedules. She handled all communication with the vendors, answered their questions and solved any issues that came up. We felt so confident in her ability to take control of all the details. Additionally, all of our vendors also had wonderful things to say about her.

Faith’s timeline was very organized and included every last detail. She even walk through the timeline with our wedding party so they knew exactly what to do and when. Faith handled everything on our wedding day and we truly felt like guests at our own wedding. We were so happy with her service and highly recommend her!

Kara Minerick

Bride

We can’t find the words to thank you enough. Working with you and your team has been the most exceptionally amazing experience. None of this would have been even close to possible without you. You turned the smallest idea (one that I wanted nothing to do with initially) into the most magical and special day, that I wish I could do it all 100 times again. I will genuinely miss you!

Cheryl Somekh Crouchen

Mother of the Bride

Where do I even begin to thank you for your endless effort, expertise and professionalism for Kara’s wedding. I honestly have never seen anyone do as much or be as on top of things as I have watched you over the past months. Today was unbelievable. You went above and beyond anything I could have asked for. You made it possible for me and more importantly Kara to be stress free and just enjoy ourselves on this most special day.

I am forever grateful. You are unbelievable and I am so lucky to have had you with us on this journey. You’re the best.

Kara Battinelli-Tramaglini

Bride

​I didn’t think I needed a planner. I had everything already planned but I started to panic about who would actually see that everything is done the day of the wedding?! I couldn’t do it, and if I did, how on earth earth would I be able to enjoy myself?! Enter Faith. She was so exquisitely detailed and attentive, she made me feel so completely relaxed and trusting. I felt entirely comfortable putting the most important day of my life into her hands, and she did not fail. In the weeks and days leading up to the wedding, she was always available, even if it was just shooting a quick text about something small that happened to pop into my mind. Everything came together on the wedding day so perfectly and so seamlessly, I honestly could not have been so relaxed without her. She and Annette made my wedding day about me. I didn’t have to sweat the small stuff, and that’s what the wedding day should be about! I cannot recommend Faith highly enough, she is absolutely wonderful!!!

Kim Iannello-Polman

Bride

We dreamed of the perfect wedding, and that’s exactly what Faith Ferguson Productions delivered. From the planning process and throughout, Faith treated us like family. Faith guided us every step of the way. The caterer she recommended was phenomenal and the florist was exceptional. The newly renovated Stagecoach Inn was by far better then we could have imagined. My only complaint was that the day went by too quickly! Thank you Faith and staff!

Eileen Reynolds-Halcomb

Bride

I am still tying to find the perfect words to thank you for the most amazing day of my life! I am still in shock that just a little bit ago, I walked down the aisle to marry my best friend. It was truly the most fantastic day! ​

Jan McCuthcheon

Registry Supervisor | Bloomingdale's The Shoppes at Riverside

A huge THANK YOU goes to you and your team! You truly made the Wedding Party exceptional. I’m so impressed by you and the amount of work you accomplish in a short amount of time. Your display was absolutely stunning! Everyone was commenting it. I sincerely appreciate everything you did to make our event a success!

Pat Reynolds

Mother of the Bride

Our daughter’s wedding was better than we could have imagined because of Faith Ferguson Productions. From the moment we met Faith till the end she was with us. She became part of our family. Faith listened to all of Eileen’s ideas and wishes and took care of all of the details to make sure they were fulfilled. She went over and above to make all of Eileen’s emerald dreams come true! We could not have done it without her!

Kevin O'Reilly, Founder & CEO

& the Management Team | Satin Fine Foods / Satin Ice

Faith Ferguson Productions exceeded all our expectations. The complexity of building and promoting an expo show attracting over 100 exhibitors and more than 10,0000 attendees is overwhelming - even more so when stage performances, classes & demonstrations, competitions and evening events are added to the busy show schedule. On top of that, our first show meant the constant need to change and adapt as creative ideas and production elements came together. But Faith never batted an eyelid. She was our ‘captain of the ship’ and remained in control at all times - leading her team of experts and reporting back on progress. When Faith said, “I’m on it” we had confidence in her and her team’s ability to not just deliver, but go above and beyond to make sure our mission and our objectives were exceeded. If your event needs a commander-in-chief to pull all the elements together and run without a hitch, allow Faith Ferguson Productions to take the lead… I guarantee you will not regret your decision.

Robin Mitchell

Mother

From the first phone call I had with Faith to discuss my twin daughters’ Sweet 16, I knew I was in good hands. I can’t thank Faith, Jennifer, and Corinne enough for everything they did to make Jordan and Ryann’s Sweet 16 a special memory. Faith and her team were such a pleasure to work with. They made sure that my daughters were happy with every detail. I had no doubt the party was going to be special, but it exceeded our expectations in every way. Everything was absolutely perfect!

Mich Turner, MBE

Director | Little Venice Cake Company

Travelling from the UK to the inaugural Americas Cake and Sugarcraft Fair, Faith Ferguson Productions expertly and calmly organized my entire itinerary from the moment I landed until my return to the airport - to include Press Calls, meetings, Presentations, Masterclasses, Book Signings, Meet and Greets, Interviews and Dinners. Their flexibility and unflustered approach made the event professionally seamless and hugely enjoyable.

Everyone was so nice, helpful and kind even though we know how tired you guys were and still everyone had their smiles on.

We really look forward to the next Show and we’ll make sure to save a few days to prep and create something spectacular!

...we are just really thankful and grateful to all of you.

Til the next Show!

Lisa Hanauer

Bride

Last month my partner of 26 years and I were married in New York (we live in Ohio) and we engaged Faith Ferguson in the start to finish planning. It is challenging enough to plan a destination wedding, but something else to plan a wedding where the guests do NOT know where they are going. Even my now wife did not know the actual destination. (i love to plan surprises!) Everyone only knew what flight they had to take and “what to pack”. Faith’s expertise in managing every detail of the weekend from logistics of the airport pickup and escort on Friday with box lunch for the 90 minute ride, all the way thru Sunday when the luxury motor coach showed up again to transport folks back to the airport, was so smooth, that it came off as effortless! The weekend consisted of two cocktail parties, two fabulous themed meals, an incredible send off brunch and available ‘entertainment and activities’ for friday and saturday afternoons to keep folks amused.

Faith hooked me up with an incredible florist, designer, photographer and a venue that was absolutely perfect, Glenmere Mansion. Faith was also instrumental in guiding menu choices, print copy and collerateral sourcing for save the dates/invites/welcome messages and menus. Since returning from our honeymoon we have seen some of our guests and they are still raving about it…one couple said they are okay if they never attend another wedding as ours was the most incredible and beautiful wedding they have ever attended or that the feel they ever will again! Faith was a real professional from start to finish, prompt, available and detailed. I highly recommend Faith and her staff.

I have very high standards when it comes to competency. I am an attorney and spent much of my career as a commercial litigator on complex deals. Faith Ferguson and her FFP team not only met, but exceeded my expectations. It is hard to reduce all of my positive feedback in this testimonial, but here is what I think are the key points that you should know if you are considering working with FFP: Faith operates on an extremely high level. I was in awe of Faith’s ability to help me to navigate and to supervise the overwhelming “wedding checklist” from beginning to end. She was committed and gave her all to each of wedding details she took on – from negotiating the major vendor deals to the tiniest minutia of décor. For each major category, Faith created and managed an easy to follow spreadsheet - which helped me to keep track of our progress and what was outstanding. Faith is a champion problem solver (perhaps a nod to her corporate background) which is exactly what you need when you are working through the inevitable and unexpected challenges that come with planning a wedding. Faith is a professional and is pleasant to work with. Everyone involved in this process, from my guests to the vendors had the same experience that I did when they interacted with Faith. She has that rare gift of being driven to win, but also extremely warm and caring. As a reflection of her hard work and dedication to our event, many of our guests commented that it was the best wedding that they had ever attended. Ultimately, the most important thing is that my husband and I had the wedding of our dreams.

Danielle & Steve

Bride & Groom

Thanks to Faith Ferguson Productions, we had the wedding of our dreams. I wouldn’t change a single thing - and that is a really great feeling.

Jennifer Brisman

Jennifer Brisman Weddings NY

My team and I just could not have orchestrated this event so beautifully without you and your team. You brought to life a superb wedding experience and navigated complex waters with relentless grace. You were so thoughtful and detail oriented with the client and vendors. Most importantly, you followed through on every detail we planned and penned. Your clients are lucky to have you.

Alan Stenberg

Owner and Innkeeper | Glenmere Mansion

We infuse elegance and sophistication into every event creating a very singular experience for our guests. Faith Ferguson shares our philosophy of excellence and designs and executes each event with style and precision. Her planning and delivery are seamless and flawless.

Marina Case Alario

Principal Designer | The Red Shutters

Faith’s skills are many but her greatest strength is her ability to organize large and complex events with great precision. She has an exceptional ability to articulate exactly what needs to be done and is not afraid to do or say what is needed. I had the pleasure of working on a wedding with her that required many levels of planning. It was a delight to combine her detail and planning orientation with my aesthetic sense.

Fred Bailey

Director | InVision

Faith is the consummate professional: precise, demanding, passionate, detail-oriented with a clear view of the larger picture. Those she has served value her experience, integrity, commitment and judgment. She is one of the most energetic and resilient people I have ever known; with Faith, the show must go on and it will . . . flawlessly.

Catherine O’Neal

VP, Account Director | Pinerock

Faith understands the big picture in developing successful meetings and events. Her intimate knowledge is evident in each and every event she touches. She seeks the best and most effective ways to bring the brand and company objectives to life, in ways that move the audience to action and create a comprehensive and meaningful experience for the attendees. Her skills extend to the key stakeholders, clients and lead executives involved in the production – ensuring that all involved have an experience that is top-notch from start to finish.

A. Shane

Publisher | Bergen Health & Life

I hired Faith Ferguson as the Event Planner for Bergenfest 2012 and found her to be one of the most organized and detail-oriented planners I have worked with in my career. BergenFest is a major event involving 1200 attendees and 80 different vendors. The event had many moving parts requiring a planner capable of extreme multi-tasking. Faith more than handled all of her responsibilities conscientiously and efficiently. I highly recommend her for corporate or social events both large and small.

Don Ross

Vice President of Catering, Conventions & Events | Harrah’s Entertainment

I have worked with Faith Ferguson for over 20 years. Her extensive knowledge of the hospitality business, her incredible attention to detail and commitment to excellence is unparalleled in the meeting planner community. She is the consummate event management professional and has executed many big budget, 1000+ attendance, and high-impact events with our company.

Jay Vandenbree

President of Consumer Sales | Sony Electronics

I have had the privilege of working with Faith for over 20 years. While a business relationship of that duration is by itself a testimonial, I would like to add another – it has gotten better every year! She continues to deliver new and creative ideas and solutions, and my people ask for her by name. Our meetings, whether small or the 1500 person challenge, always deliver. Our events for dealer nights to the Consumer Electronics Show never disappoint. While my position gives me much to follow up on, Faith Ferguson is never one of them. She is always at or below budget and always exceeds expectations.

Stan Glasgow

President and Chief Operating Officer | Sony Electronics, Inc.

I met Faith Ferguson over 7 years ago shortly after joining Sony Electronics. Faith and her company manage all of our critical events including our Annual Business Conference, Sony Open in Hawaii, Open House for our customers as well as other miscellaneous events – some of which are greater than 2000 people. At first I thought Faith worked for Sony, but eventually was told she managed these meetings as a vendor. This surprised me as her rapport with all the personnel in Sony was so good that I never thought an outside company or individual could manage the Sony team that well. We pride ourselves as putting on the best conferences and events within time and budget constraints. I never have to be concerned about any event Faith manages for Sony. There is no better person to manage an event or meeting than Faith Ferguson.
