I lived in Tahoe for 4.5 years. I consider it to be my home. I was a wedding planner and coordinator in South Lake Tahoe for 3.5 years. I have found that I like planning and coordinating other people's weddings and not my own. I started to plan an elopement for myself. I made three important phone calls, Minister, Florist, and Events, Ink. I wanted invitations and I know that Cynthia is amazing. I had worked with her when planning a best friend's wedding. She is basically a one stop wedding shop. She does everything. Her work is amazing! I had no idea how much she does when I first contacted her. I should have called her in the beginning before planning anything. We went over everything together. Later on with pressure from outside influences we were asked not to elope and instead do the whole wedding and reception. She agreed to help me for the same cost for the elopement. She contacted everyone for me. She created the most amazing save the dates and invitations. She became our wedding planner and arranged everything for us. I couldn't have imagined a better deal! I had a lot of drama with the location of the reception, which became the location of the rehearsal dinner as my guest number exceeded the amount it could hold. She found us an amazing location and did everything for us. Then when there was more drama with the rehearsal dinner. I started to feel overwhelmed. Cynthia stepped in and was able to fix everything in about thirty minutes. See my uncle is in a wheelchair and I had a super misunderstanding with the rehearsal dinner location and they couldn't accommodate him so he wouldn't have been able to attend. We learned of that a day before our rehearsal dinner. She fixed it and got us a new place for our rehearsal dinner in about 30 minutes. In the end, I feel we took advantage of her. She was our planner, coordinator, decorator, florist, photographer, invitation and stationary creator and sender. She made all the decorations so that we didn't have to do anything, but get dressed and show up. It was amazing! My wedding was elegant and lovely!

Cynthia did my "A year in the life" baby photos for my son. I can't thank her enough for the gorgeous pictures. She is very talented with a eye for photography. I would recommend her services to anyone looking to capture a once in a lifetime moment. Our photography experience with Cynthia started with our wonderful wedding photos 3 years ago... Thanks so much for everything, can't wait to send these to my family.

We can’t thank you enough for putting together the perfect wedding. Everything was more than we could have dreamed of. Your creative visions were beautiful and people are still telling us that it was the best wedding they’d ever been to. We know it was a lot of hard work and every detail really showed! Once again, thank you for the most amazing wedding, we are still in awe of how perfect the day was!

Jarein and I want to thank you so much for all your hard work in making Sam & Amanda’s wedding day so special. From the very beginning it was a real pleasure getting to know and working with you. The advice and guidance you gave was invaluable and made it easy for us to plan and prepare for the big event. We truly appreciated that you addressed and eased any of our concerns along the way and made yourself readily available. And, wow, you gave us your home number…..what more could we ask for…..that was so great! Even last minute surprises were handled with finesse and the usual “I’ll take care of that”, and you did it flawlessly. You don’t know how reassuring that was for us so that we were able to really relax and thoroughly enjoy the wedding. The ceremony was so beautiful (even the wind didn’t detract), and the evening was perfect. Sam and Amanda were pleasantly surprised ad excited when they arrived at Edgewood and saw how beautifully everything was that you created for them. You couldn’t have made them or us any happier. All of the flowers were absolutely AMAZING and you really captured exactly what I had envisioned and then some. There were so many great personal touches that you incorporated and we received so many compliments…we are so grateful! The vendors you referred us to were all great to work with, professional and also very nice. Linda and Kelly from Weddings-A-Go-Go and Laura from Bliss Salon did an AWESOME job. I thoroughly enjoyed watching them transform Amanda in an amazing (girly girl) beautiful bride… and we had so much fun! Amanda was very happy with the outcome and I know Sam her groom really appreciated the end result. The ceremony itself was beautiful, not just because of the setting but also because Ron did such a good job at officiating… we all felt the love. And Riano…what a great entertainer he is that he can keep everything flowing so well throughout the entire reception. You were definitely right when you told us that anyone can play music but not everyone can entertain… that was key. We were so happy with him and we had so many guests come up and tell us how much fun they were having at the reception. As a matter of fact, I don’t think I have ever seen some of our family members enjoy themselves that much. And, you probably noticed that Sam & Amanda practically danced all night, it was really great! We all loved the cake too, really delicious and definitely worth all of the calories! What we had leftover vanished in no time. Cynthia, the wedding that you put together was perfect… it was everything that you had promised and more. We received compliments from so many people touching every aspect of the wedding. When I asked Sam’s dad if he was enjoying himself he told me “it was the best wedding he’d ever been to.” Quite a compliment and he wasn’t the only one who told me that. We also enjoyed ourselves tremendously, but the most important aspect of this event and our ultimate goal was achieved: that Sam and Amanda really loved and enjoyed their wedding, and they absolutely, definitely did! So thank you again for all your hard work and congratulations on the wonderful job you did to create such a beautiful wedding. We are so grateful and will always remember this special day in our lives.

To Cyn, What a pleasure it has been to deal with you from the UK, You have so helpful and very fast to respond to emails and to delivery products. We had an issue with the postal service and you straight away sent us more wax sticks at a greater cost than the postage, and even offered us the first order as a wedding gift when they arrived! (You don't get that friendly service everywhere). These wax sticks are for our Service cards for our wedding on Saturday 29th August, had it not been for Cynthia's excellent customer service and helpful nature we would never have had these wax sticks. If I'm ever in Lake Tahoe I will be sure to visit for a coffee. Thank you so so so much for all your help and complete understanding in our urgent matter of getting these wax sticks Massive thank you!

Owner Cynthia Ferris and her helper, Heather, were absolutely fabulous and so nice to work with for my daughter's July, 2011 wedding. Cynthia did the flowers and photography. Incredible creativity and ideas, prices were very competitive, and BEAUTIFUL results. Cynthia showed her professionalism and experience as she photographed the event; it was obvious that she knew exactly what she wanted to capture in the photographs. The flower arrangements were gorgeous and most importantly, she listened to what my daughter wanted in her bouquet, the bridesmaids' bouquets, and centerpieces! Cynthia was a calming force with the chaos because she knew what to do and what needed to get done! - Her creativity and talent are amazing as you walk into the Events, Ink South Shore store. We could not be any happier with the results.

Cynthia and Heather were the calm amongst the storm! I had simply hired Events Ink. to help with the floral arrangements and some rental items. My husband and I were planning a rather large Tahoe wedding from a distance and had many unplanned obstacles to tackle. Several days prior to our June wedding it was snowing at our outdoor location. The venue was not flexible in working with any of the vendors or any weather related changes. This being noted myself, (the bride) was on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Cynthia and Heather opened up their doors and their arms offering me a place of refuge where I could regroup and refocus. Their sympathy and systematic approach made things easier. I recommend this one-stop-shop to anyone planning an event. These ladies went above and beyond to help pull off my special day.

Cynthia and Lindsay were amazing! I had no concerns that everything was going to be taken care of on my wedding day. When the little details didn't go quite as planned or something went wrong, they were so quick to jump in and offer assistance. It was so great to be able to hang back and relax. They are definitely a breath of fresh air to have around on your wedding day. I would, without hesitation, rehire Events, Ink for coordination help and invitations. They really know what they are doing in these two areas. The invitations that Cynthia provided for us were unbelievable! My best advice to anyone considering using her for invitations and other paper product, if you do not know exactly what you want and feel comfortable being flexible, let Cynthia run with your ideas! She is a pro, we told her the few things like color and general ideas that we had for the layout of our invitations and she blew us away with how she incorporated our desires into a beautifully coordinated set of save-the-dates, invites, and programs! She was so flexible and was just really a joy to work with, especially for my slightly type A mom and I :) I would use her again in a heartbeat for invitations!

We truly enjoyed our special day. You really made sure everything ran smoothly. I didn't have to worry about anything the entire day. All of my guests continued to comment about how exquisite the reception room looked -- thanks to you and your team! Thanks again for your coordination & all your help with the last minute things, like the groom's cake. He was so surprised! Also, the centerpieces, bouquets and floral arrangements were superb! I have never seen so many beautiful red roses! They were amazing! I will send along pictures as soon as I get them. Feel free to use me as a reference. Hopefully our paths cross again in the future.

It is my pleasure to write this regarding your impeccable service and phenomenal delivery of a Grand Opening to remember a lifetime! Cynthia, when I first called you simply to order invitations, little did I know that you could do that and so much more. Your offer to organize the entire event was met with hesitation. My doubts ranged from "what could you do that I could not think of" to "are you going to meet the high level of excellence I place on every task I accept?" Words are not adequate to describe my appreciation and awe at the incredible job you delivered with an unrelenting schedule and endless changes and executive team demands. Your energy was limitless, your demeanor professional, and your encouragement and positive attitude were contagious. Through many hours, emails, meetings, and additional last minute meetings, I can honestly say that I learned to relax and let you handle many of the items at hand with you skill and grace. Your selection of key items, your knowledge of vendors, and your overall professional recommendations resulted in a momentous evening and a class act! I extend my personal appreciation from the entire Konami Gaming Executive Team and foreign VIP visitors. If only resources, time, and money were available, I would gladly embrace another special event just so I could work with you again.

I would again like to reiterate my appreciation for the excellent job you did, on our behalf, in Las Vegas for Mr. Davis' 75th birthday party. We have received nothing but "Rave Reviews" from our guests. Phrases like "you exceeded perfection" and "the most exquisitely orchestrated event I have ever attended". We could not have created that type of ambiance without your help. I even enjoyed myself, what a novel concept. I look forward to working with you in the future.

Cynthia's portfolio displayed the quality and skills we were looking for our event. Her experience proved valuable during the big day, her knowledge of the facilities provided good scenries, she also has good art direction which made thing easier and faster. The package we received had a good variety of different angle shoots, locations, and image enhancements e.g. Sepia, Black & White. This was our first session with a professional photographer and the experience was a memorable one. Thanks Cynthia.

Events Ink went beyond expectation in every respect. The attention to detail, creativity and ability to find solutions to any issue, made our "day of" experience truly exceptional. My daughter invited Cynthia to participate in her wedding almost at the 11th hour after we realized that in addition to the invitations we had ordered, which turned out beautifully, Cynthia had ideas and solutions to make so many other details fall into place easily and affordably. Luckily, she was available for the wedding day! One of the things that impressed me the most was that Cynthia truly "got' my daughter's personality and her vision for the wedding she had dreamed of. I would highly recommend Events, Ink.

How can I begin to explain everything Cynthia did to make our wedding and reception absolutely perfect? From the first time I stepped into the shop I knew I had found an amazingly unique shop. Originally I was only on the search for the "Perfect" wedding invitation. Cynthia listened and within in a week of our meeting had created exactly what I had dreamed and for a better price than the ones you find in the catalogs. Of course being the "Control Freak" that I am thought I could handle all the planning myself. Boy was I wrong. It was at that point I knew I wanted her to be my Wedding Planner. I remember her telling me that everything was going to be perfect and I need not worry, and although I would smile and say OK. I was freaking out inside. And three days out from the wedding when they took all my paperwork and told me to go away and enjoy all my family that was in town, I figured "OK, I need to let go".. For that I can not thank them enough. The Rehearsal was so well organized; even the kids knew exactly what to do. Then came the wedding day, and again everything came off without a hitch. But most importantly when I walked into the reception room it took my breath away. For that a huge Thank you for making sure everything was perfect. The room looked so beautiful; it was everything I dreamed it would be and more. I want to share with you some of the comments we have received from our guests. -I have seen wedding like that in magazines, but to be privileged enough to attend one was amazing. - That was the most wonderful/beautiful/well thought-out/planned/orchestrated/formal/casual/fun wedding we have every been too! - I want to tell you what a BEAUTIFUL wedding that was. WOW. You all did such an exquisite job on EVERYTHING.. and in areas I would have never thought of, like the lovely baskets furnished in the ladies restroom and the welcome baskets delivered to each person's room upon arrival. You two invested a lot of time and money in "your special day" and it was noticed and appreciated by all. So as you can see this turned out to be quite the event that we simply could have not pulled off without Events Ink's vision, support and help. Thank you for making "Our Wedding" absolutely FABULOUS.

Ink truly understood what I was looking for. When I described my very specific requests there was not even a hesitation. Our designer, Cynthia, simply listened to what I wanted, came up with the design and stayed within the budget that I provided. She was very clear about the turnaround time, what & when I should expect things. Thank you Events, Ink for making my unique vision come true! It was worth every penny paid for this award winning design company

Beth and I just wanted to thank you again for helping us have such a fantastic wedding. You were really a life-saver in coordinating things the day of and at the rehearsal, and several people remarked to us that this was easily one of the best-organized, best-run weddings they'd ever attended. The programs, favors, and other decorations were all beautiful (and the cupcakes were really tasty), and the room looked gorgeous. And of course, more importantly, we and our families didn't really have to worry about any of those things so that everyone was really able to just enjoy the day without being stressed out. The other events (bowling, the BBQ, the rehearsal dinner) also went really well as well, and thanks especially for pointing us towards Dory's Oar for the rehearsal dinner: the food was fantastic, and we never would have thought to check the place out if you hadn't mentioned it. Thanks for everything.
