Soraya and her team are incredible. We decided to hire her, and I have to say, she was worth every penny and more. She had wonderful suggestions, which made our wedding that much more memorable. I have gotten so many compliments on the ceremony live music (that she recommended), the beauty of the hall that Aidil created, to the non-stop appetizers, how delicious the meal was, and the beauty of the dessert table. I was so relaxed the day of the wedding and got to enjoy getting ready with the bridal party, knowing that all the details for the day was in good hands with Soraya. Thank you again for all you helped us with.
First and foremost I just wanted to use this opportunity to thank Soraya and her crews for a job well done. You all were incredible from the beginning of the meeting to the day of the party. You gave me hope, you encourage me, to always look at the brighter side during my stressful moment.
Secondly, I know I should always acknowledge God first, but I am so thankful to the most High God for sending you to me. Although I meant you through my friend but I am so blessed to have found you. You have such an amazing spirit and you are so professional in your different ways. Keep up the good work and remind blessed . If you are thinking of an event planner I suggest no other than this lady right here S.E.B
I worked with Soraya for my daughters first birthday event decoration. She spend two hours in our initial conversation about the event and to find out what I am looking for.
She is very professional in her work, communication. She always promptly responded back to emails, text messages and phone calls. She is cooperative to changes.
Overall we had an awesome event. Everything came out better than we expected.
Her team members are very pleasure to work with too.
I will highly recommend her.
My husband and I hired S.Y.B Catering and Bar Services - a Division of S.Y.B Event Planning Services, for our wedding at the Waterworks Museum this past September and the entire staff, particularly Owner and our Day of Coordinator Soraya Y. Belgacem , were incredible to work with. We came to her not even a month before our date because our caterer we originally had backed out due to a death in the family.
She met with us at the Waterworks, we chose her over another caterer because she was familiar with the venue, as it is not your typical lay out. She showed us her sample menu, listened to what we wanted and then gave us her opinion. She was even able to add table cloths, tables and chairs, to our order as the other caterer was handling that.
Her staff, bartenders and catering team came in early, set up everything, decorated the tables. Everything looked AMAZING and we both were very happy. The food was also amazing, almost not your "typical" boring wedding foods. We wanted a social type of party, so we did lots of fun passed appetizers, chicken and waffle skewers, spinach and feta cigars, ahi tuna tar tar that they served on a spoon, mini Swedish meatballs, which came out on mini plates and mini forks (So cute!!)
The food stations were also set up, very nicely. Since they specialize in Mediterranean, we did some fresh sea-foods, which were amazing and a Middle Eastern station, we never tasted Hummus like that before!!
The bar service was great, amazing bartender, fun and happy. We did a custom cocktail - that was a pink and blue color, it tasted amazing. We even had champagne handed out as people walked in through the doors.
Soraya handled everything to a T, we did not have to worry about anything. ALL of her staff were so professional and worked very hard! They even wrapped up some left overs for our after party!
We can’t thank S.Y.B Event Planning Services and Soraya enough for helping to make our wedding day so wonderful!
I attended one of Soraya's events and was so impressed by what I saw there that I *had* to write this review. The event I attended was a holiday party at a private residence. The entire house had been turned into a Las Vegas-themed paradise, with careful lighting, decorative accents, place settings, and live entertainment. It was staggering: ice sculptures, a casino, flapper girls, a magician, and a live Elvis impersonator. Oh, and fantastic food and catering and drinks and courteous valet parking. Everything ran so smoothly and easily, you'd have thought that our hosts lived like that every day of their lives! Everything was in its place, the performers seemed to have sprouted organically out of the Persian carpets (they were fantastic). The whole thing was so brilliant that I sought out and introduced myself to the genius behind the extravaganza, and so got to meet Soraya. She is a charming, brilliant woman, at the top of her game. It was actually hard to believe that a single person could have pulled the whole thing together, rather than a team of 50, and I told her so. But she is truly a consummate professional, and I can't imagine any challenge she couldn't pull off with aplomb. If you're a sophisticated person who wants a creative visionary, not just a logistician, you should book her immediately.
Soraya was a pleasure to work with. Not only did she handle the work load professionally, she was able to share and provide insight during challenging times. Her suggestions helped create a very special setting for our 30th and 31st Anniversary events. The staff, board, volunteers and guests were in awe of the setting and the photos came out beautifully.

I (Emad The Twister. You can find me on Gigsalad) worked with Soraya in Natick, MA for a Halloween birthday party doing balloon decor.
She is very professional and extremely well organised. It was very enjoyable working with her to create her masterpiece of balloon decor.
The detail she put into the decorations was very wonderful and beautiful.
She had me decorate the hall with pumpkin towers, halloween cat towers, centrepieces, bat towers and balloon twisting for the children.
S.Y.B Event Planning Services is the best.
