Happy Customers, Happy Me

Absolutely the best! Love her! Planning my wedding from Alabama was becoming very stressful, so my fiance' (Keith) said to me go find a wedding planner. So I did some research, made some phone calls and headed to Pensacola, Fl. with my girlfriend in October of 2021. Billie was our first meeting and we absolutely fell in love with her! Had other appointments but Billie was always in my heart and mind. Came home and discussed with my Keith what we had found out. I knew we were going back to FL in November so he said I want to meet her. Called her up and our date was still available with her, hallelujah, we met her and her husband for lunch. Decided before lunch was even over that she was the one! Before we even left the parking lot she had found the venue! The perfect venue and I immediately felt a sense of relief! I was in great hands. Love her and friend for life!

Billy's passion for her profession shines through from the way she handles the big picture to the small details.  Her recommendations for vendors were all fantastic and she made sure our day went smoothly!

Billy is amazing!
Billy is simply the most wonderful human being to ever exist. Not only is she so sweet, professional, hilarious, and kind...but she is dang good at her job! She truly made our wedding a MAGICAL and beautiful experience! She went above and beyond her call of duty and made me a flower crown when I had a mishap with my florist. In her words “YOU’RE GETTING THIS FLOWER CROWN NO MATTER WHAT!” She is truly just an amazing person that will make all your dreams come true and your stress melt away on your special day!

You couldn’t ask for a better wedding planner than this chick. Not only will Billy be your incredible planner, but she’ll become such a dear friend. She will go above and beyond to make your dream wedding come true.

Billy was an absolute joy to work with from our very first meeting. She made my wedding day PERFECT and went above and beyond to make sure my husband and I were happy and knew what to do and when. She is the most genuine and caring person and was a true lifesaver my wedding weekend. I don’t know what we would’ve done without Billy running the show. We are forever grateful for the lifetime memories she helped us make. THANK YOU!!!

Billy is the most incredible wedding planner ever. She was always so excited for the event. And she makes dreams come true. She even made all of our flower and they turned out perfectly and now I will have them forever. She even saved the day when my niece spilled coffee on one of the bridesmaids dresses. Billy came to the rescue and got all the coffee out. Billy made my wedding everything I could have wanted and more. I would tell everyone I know to use her. She’s the best.

The BEST Planner/Cordinator You’ll Find! ❤️
Billy and her team did a wonderful job of tending to our every wish for the big day. She executed exactly what I had dreamed of since I got engaged, but better! Best thing you can you do as a bride is make her part of you big day. Makes everything so stress free down to every perfect detail. Thank you, so much for making the day our wish come true!!

Billy is a wedding ninja! I hosted my wedding on my grandparents property so absolutely NO venue crew, NO venue inventory, and NO venue decor options, and the reception building was a working cow barn normally. Everything was done by Billy and her team. She was my first wedding hire over a year before the wedding and she was hands on at the very start! She was able to get me rentals and the exact decor that I wanted for the wedding! Even at the last minute she was able to pull through with finding extra chairs and extremely adorable lanterns. Leading up to the wedding she was extremely organized but also went out of her way to check on me mentally; that is going above and beyond. The day of the wedding was an absolute dream. Her and her team KILLED IT. I ran out of time myself the day before so I left her up to all the decor and set up and it turned out better than I could have imagined. And her ability to run an event like that, especially one thats not a traditional venue, was extraordinary. Her and her team were ROCK STARS. You must book with Billy for your wedding. You will get all the bells and whistles that a coordinator should come with and more!

Wedding Planner and Officiant
Billy was an absolute joy to work with. She made our day of our wedding stress-free like she promised. As our planner, a lot of things we were concerned about, Billy took care of and made sure it was the way we wanted or better. As our officiant, Billy was amazing. She incorporated everything we had asked for into the ceremony. We couldn't have found a better planner and officiant.

Highly Recommend
Billy was absolutely amazing. Planning a wedding is hard let alone during a pandemic when everything falls apart. I hired her for the day of coordination and I would HIGHLY recommend. She helped run the rehearsal and made it go so smoothly and she did so much on the day of the wedding. She picked up the flowers, cake and food and decorated with all the stuff I gave her. She really made the day special given the circumstances and I can not recommend her enough!!

Absolutely Perfect!

I was very worried about finding a day of Coordinator to not only help create the vision we had for our Halloween themed wedding, but also someone who understands the our passion for all things spooky and different from the norm. Billy was the perfect match for us in every single way. From creating my beautiful bouquet & table centerpieces, to organizing the ceremony and reception, setting the mood with the perfect lighting, and of course making sure we were able to eat and get cocktails ;) she made sure everything would go according to plan and let us enjoy our time with our loved ones.
Her and Jonathan were extremely professional and a lot of fun to work with (they even came ready to go in costume!) I couldn't reccomend them enough. Our day was absolutely perfect thanks to all their hardwork and dedication.

Billy is the BEST!
Goes the extra mile! Perfect!! She made sure our day ran so smoothly. She’s the BEST at what she does. She went the extra mile for us, probably more than a mile honestly. Our guests said it was one of the best weddings they’ve ever been to. She even helped my bridesmaids bustle my dress because they couldn’t quite figure it out. She checked on us constantly making sure we had everything we needed. She really does have an eye for design. She made my vision come to life. I highly recommend billy to anyone wanting their dream wedding to become a reality. Thank you so much for everything billy!!

Great Day of Coordinator
Billy was my day of wedding coordinator and she was fantastic. We met about a month before the wedding she worked out all of the details and was willing to help in whatever way possible. On the actual wedding day she made everything run smoothly and handled mishaps without me ever knowing!

Billy is awesome!

DaSilva's Event Design provided the flowers and centerpieces for our wedding, as well as all the decorating and coordinating the day of. Billy was absolutely incredible to work with; kind, caring, professional and incredible vision. Everything she touched became perfect, and she made it all seem so easy. This was so important to me, as it took so much work and worry away. 
As a side note, I feel like I made a new brilliant and talented friend! I would highly recommend DaSilva's Event Design to anyone with an important upcoming event.

Absolutely the best!
I can't rave enough about the amazing job that Billy did for my daughter's wedding this past Sunday. I'm a hands on person and wanted to be involved in everything, but as the mom of the bride it was hard to be everywhere. I put it all in Billy's hands and it was more beautiful than I had imagined. She took care of everything like it was her own daughter's wedding. There wasn't one thing that wasn't perfect. Her attention to detail is remarkable, and the way she cares for the bride and the bridal party was like she was family.

Billy helped put our day together and was absolutely wonderful every step of the way! From our first meeting where she showed us our venue and discussed our initial details to when she very kindly removed some contraband alcohol a guest brought to asking to buy the wedding arch my husband made she was kind and funny and the best addition to our group of helpers. She’s definitely someone I’d recommend to anyone putting together an event!

Kate M - The Knot review

“I highly recommend DaSilva's Event Design for all of your event planning needs. My company used DaSilva's Event Design for our company Christmas Party in 2016. From our very first meeting I could tell that Billy has amazing ideas and creativity. It is easy to see that she loves what she does and that shows through in the quality of her work.
The decorations at our event were absolutely breathtaking, and every detail was seen to. Billy Rae took every suggestion we gave and made it a reality and better than we could have dreamed of. She even took care of the details that I never would have expected. Her efficiency and professionalism saved me time and energy so I could actually enjoy the party instead of being worried about making sure everything was taken care of.
I received feedback from multiple coworkers that this was the best year so far. I have no doubt that our parties will just get better every year with Billy Rae taking charge. I look forward to working with her again this year.”

"We had Billy as our wedding planner/decorator and she was amazing. Made the day much less stressful and did such a good job with the decorations and planning. Would recommend her to anyone."

Jordan Nelson

"Billy was the best from the very beginning to the end! She came up with brilliant ideas that matched the theme I was going for! She made most of my decorations by hand..so cool! She was so easy to work with and so flexible! Not only did she do an amazing job with my cake and decorations but she showed me so much support and encouragement on the big day! She helped me stay focused and calm and I was confident in her abilities to do a phenomenal job. I never doubted how anything would turn out AND it all turned out so much better than I could have imagined! She is so wonderful! Highly recommend!"
