"I didn't think I was going to get the Sweet 16 of my dreams, especially how my parents were acting. But Ms. Khater and her team were able to make my dreams come true. Just like her slogan says. I've recommended her to all my friends and will continue to do so!"

"Cherished Events was actually hired by my friends to plan and execute my baby shower. I was extremely apprehensive about my baby shower, because I knew my friends couldn't afford to throw me a lavish baby shower. But Cherished Events did a remarkable job! Not only did they exceed my expectations, but they were able to focus on my Eastern culture and traditions. My baby shower is a day that I will never forget and it's all thanks to Cherished Events!"

"My wife hired Cherished Events to plan my graduation party. Sounds lame, but my wife is all about celebrating everything! But we recently had a baby and she was also a part-time college student, so she didn't have the time to plan the party. That's where Cherished Events came in. Not only did they plan everything to my wife's desire, (intimate, casual, and fun) the founder and owner of Cherished Events, Saba, got us a surprise. She bought our son a cap and gown and got my school, SUNY Cobleskill, to allow my son to walk down the stage with me! We even made the Daily Gazette! Have to give props to my wife for hiring Cherished Events, not only did they throw an amazing party, but they truly made it unforgettable!" http://www.dailygazette.com/photos/galleries/2012/may/12/suny-cobleskill-commencement/15578/
