Great!  Thank you for the update and confirmation. We've enjoyed working with you! Both Dana and I said on our way home from our meeting that we are so fortunate and happy to have you as our Linen Effects Representative. We enjoyed visiting your showroom and getting ideas/opinions on our table plans. It is apparent that you enjoy your job!  

During the wedding planning process we have run into many situations and often been disappointed by the response/treatment we've received. You have been a breath of fresh air and have made this step a fun experience, offering professional quality service and I'm sure great products. I would be happy to send a note to your manager to communicate our experience or feel free to forward this email. Send me contact information if you would like me to contact your manager personally. 

Our best to you with your wedding and future at Linen Effects. 

Respectfully,

Hello Russ, 

Our event was wonderful and looked beautiful with your linens and chair covers.  I was very pleased with having both of these to dress up the room.  People noticed and the feedback was that by having both the linens and chair covers really pulled it together well, much better than if it would have been one or the other.

Thank you,

A little belated, but I just wanted to reach out and say thank you for all of your help throughout the planning process. You were absolutely amazing to work with, and I had so much fun! Everything went perfect, and we couldn't be any happier! I will most definitely be giving you and Linen Effects rave reviews (when I get to them) to tell everyone how great of an experience I had! : )

Hi Emily, 

I wanted to be in touch to thank you again for the lovely centerpieces and linens and candles for our wedding event! Everything was gorgeous and truly exceeded our expectations! Just so you know, today, we are dropping off an extra table number and holder that was left at the MEC venue. (It was for table 21, but we only had 20 tables). 

Anyway, the wedding was beyond wonderful and everyone felt so loved and cared for, so to us, that's the true success! 

It was wonderful working with you and the others at Linen Effects.

 Hi you lovely Linen Effects people !

A big thank you to your entire team for all the hard work on the M****** wedding!  

Thank you to Mike and the delivery team.    I made up signs and taped them to the walls in our back hallway to direct them where to put each category of rentals.   This was to help catering as they worked their way through the dish ware.   The delivery guys made sure to keep it all in order for us which helped immensely on the wedding day.

A big thanks to your set and strike teams.   I so appreciated having you Stephanie as there were those small  last minute changes.  

The strike today went very smoothly and we were glad to be able to offer a next day pick up.  

As always, my favorite rental company……my thanks !

To all of our fabulous vendors, 

Wow!!! We are still awestruck by the unbelievable wedding day that no words can truly adequate describe, and we want to thank each and every one of you for making Stacey’s and Danny’s wedding truly beyond what they could have hoped for. I hope you will forgive me for this group “thank you” but, there is also a bit of method to this — we were so taken with each and every one of our vendors and as you are all in the wedding business, and are in the position of doing referrals, we hope that you will refer your clients to all of these amazing people.  

And for all of you, thank you for making things so easy for Stacey and Danny as they were in New York with little time to come to Minneapolis to meet with people and see things. Your willingness to hold face time meetings, mail samples, etc. was really appreciated. 

    note:  testimonials for all the other vendors was deleted for space purposes

Russ Mohr, Linen Effects: Ditto what I said above about the gorgeous look of the room. The linens, the gold chairs, the centerpiece candelabras and wire structures (those were hard to envision, but they were huge “wows” - thanks to you and Steven)…everything was perfect and beautiful. You have impeccable taste, and were so thorough and helpful. It was a pleasure getting to know you and work together, and I will look forward to connecting on future parties we have. Also…nice touch when you sent Stacey the linen samples and put an orange one in for Danny with the “just kidding” on the back. You got his hopes up for a moment!!! 

So by now you know what a dream team we had! I hope you all get referrals from local friends who were there as well as from one another if you didn’t already know of each other. People ask if I’m sad it’s all over but I’m truly not. I am so happy that everything was truly so dreamy! And most importantly, that Stacey and Danny are so happy and are starting their life together as a married couple, in their new Upper West Side digs!  

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for EVERYTHING!!!

Your service was awesome for the Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies Founder’s Day!  We were super nervous about the 8:30 start time, but your driver showed up at 8:30 on the dot. Whew! It gave us all the time we needed to set up.

Everything looked lovely, and as I mentioned, the Linen Effects people are one in a million.

Thanks so much, again, for all you did for us. I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship!

Hi Russ, 

Oh my gosh!  Thank you and the L.E. team for making the I.C.C. ballroom looks so spectacular Saturday night!  Paige and I are pretty good imagining what something will look like but you exceed our imaginations and created the look we wanted.  We heard several rave reviews from our guests.  And one of the servers at I.C.C. told me during the “first look” that she has worked over 500 weddings and this design was in her top five!  You did it all and we were/are thrilled.  The pictures don’t quite do it justice but is is all we have now.    

One last note, we were surprised to find that another event at ICC that day had hired a bagpiper to play on the 18th hole.  I walked on the deck for a moment before dinner to view the moon and heard the bagpipes being played.  A guest at the wedding asked him to play for us once he finished his task on the 18th green.  He arrived right after the salad and before dinner was served and played beautifully.  I forgot to mention we are half Scot, my siblings and I were overjoyed.  

Once again thank you it was a pleasure.

 Hi Russ!

Russ, how do I thank you for all you did in offering your suggestions, your expertise and your guidance, there aren't words. I want you to know how beautiful the room was!! From the first appt., when I was out of town, I remember how kind and helpful you were to Elizabeth, and I remember thanking you for that. As the months went on and I had questions, you were always so patient with me, kind, gracious, insightful and helpful; thank you for being all of these things.

Russ, the room was beautiful!!! It was like walking into a fairy tale, a dream wedding.The colors were beautiful! You knew the look Elizabeth was looking for, you were a good listener! Thank you so much! You were so kind to her and I know she deflected to you because she trusted your expertise. She even repeated this on her wedding day. :) She LOVED the room, she said it was exactly as she hoped it would be, that you captured it!

People raved about how the room looked. Even Brenda commented on the lovely light pink chair sashes! People loved the sparkly napkins, they were so pretty! All of it was Russ, was stunning. Thank you!!

Lastly, my husband told me after the wedding that prior to the wedding he wasn't thrilled with us not using the Lafayette linens (he is a CPA!) LOL
He then said that there was no doubt we made the right choice, he loved how it looked and it never could have looked that beautiful if hadn't used Linen Effects!! I then told him we owed it all to you, Russ.

Enjoy your weekend, and the best to you,

Nancy

Hello Russ, 

Now  that there is some space in time from the wedding and we have a little time to reflect, I just wanted you to know how much we appreciate the role you played in making it such a beautiful memorable occasion. 

I heard the room described that day as Magical.  It truly was and the tables and Candelabras were perfect.  They were so beautiful during the ceremony and at the dinner.  The tall candelabras on the wedding party table were out of this world.  Thank you for suggesting that and helping us make it all happen.  I am so glad you pointed out the fact that the offered linens may not go to the floor.  I would not have been happy with that.  I loved them hanging to the floor.  

I really enjoyed working with you and am amazed at what Linen Effects brings to an event.  You even made me feel like I picked the right dress!! Thank you so much for all you do.  When the pictures come in we will send some. 

Best Regards,

Thank you for the beautiful decor you and your team provided for our wedding last weekend.  Your lighting design was simply spectacular.  It totally exceeded my hopes and my expectations.  It took my breath away when we first entered the room.   The elegant and extended lines of the draping, coupled with your stunning chandeliers and candelabras created a magical evening for us and our guests.   The bartenders and the security staff at Aria said that the room never looked better. 

We very much enjoyed working with you and thank you again.

Robin and Linen Effects Team,
Let me take this opportunity to thank you and your team on the installation and dismantle of the reception for Luis and Joseph today. All the Linen Effects staff were hard-working, professional, pleasant, excited and incredible collaborators to make our event exceptional.

I cannot rave more highly about how you, Robin, were successful in accommodating some last minute changes and it truly was a spectacular event because of how everything looked and rolled out. The  ambiance was indescribably gorgeous! Ask your team!!!   As soon as I get some photos, I will send some onto you. Thank YOU again for supporting my efforts at Magical Memories and allowing me to shine!!

 
Regards,
Marsha

Russ,

Thank you for your kind follow up note- the wedding was a huge success. I think the white leather sofa and chairs at the Mill City Museum were one of the best ideas- especially because we danced until they pushed us out the door at 1AM. Linda

Just a quick note that the Jamie H. wedding here last night was so incredibly gorgeous!   The linens and chandeliers….WoW!

The beaded linen was just amazing.

 

She was a lovely, lovely bride and A'BULAE looked it's best.

 

Kudos to you and your wonderful team  !

You really did a wonderful job carrying our Pop Art theme throughout the reception - it added such a nice touch of elegance to the event.

Thank you again for your time to manage this - it was such a pleasure working with you!  Cheers!

To our "A" Team,
We formally want to thank you all for helping us realize our dreams and give our daughter and son-in-law a perfect evening, one they will remember for years to come.
 
Each and every one of you was FABULOUS!  We cannot thank you enough.  As I said to Melanie (CBO), the word "perfect" comes to mind and that is very rarely used these days.
 
I know I got a little momzilla during the evening and I truly am sorry if I snapped at any of you.  We were having some food/hotel issues and I was, unfortunately, aggravated.  It may have been misdirected at one or two of you and again, for that I am truly sorry (Sally). 
 
Jo and Dan had a blast all day/night and that was due to each of you making them feel so very special!!!!
 
There were times during the process that many people said to me "oh you could save money by using so and so or finding someone new to the business" and my pat answer always was and would continue to be "I don't want to worry about anything - so I will hire the best - you get what you pay for".  And we got it plus some!
 
If any of you have websites or FB pages you would like me to publicly write something I would be thrilled and honored to.  You guys ROCKED our night and we will be eternally grateful.
 
Thank you Thank you Thank you!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!    We had a little downpour (just to make me nuts) just before the event so we kept the sides of the tent closed until just before they came so we could move the furniture out to the patio area.  Once we put it out there it looked beautiful and it turned out to be a perfect night enjoyed by all.  They are saying one of the best ever!  So thank you again, Russ, for all you do for me.  

Lots of great compliments on the event last night!!!

You were exactly right...either linens would have been beautiful. The ivory on ivory was very elegant, though, and we loved the look. Everything came together perfectly, and truly was lovely!
 
In hindsight there was no need for any concern... you, Mary Jo, Doug and Laurie make an amazing team.   Everything was perfect and we would not change a thing.

Hey Leah-

     Brian and I wanted to tell you how great a job that the two ladies that came out to set up the room did for our wedding!  They were very nice, efficient, and made sure the aisle runner was perfect.  The room looked wonderful with what they did.  Majestic Oaks had a photographer there that day, (June 8), taking pictures of their other rooms, (where the other two weddings were taking place, too), and the golf tournament.  He told Brian that he'd never seen our room done up the way it was and that it was beautiful, with all of our colors working really well together.  This included the seat covers, sashes, and aisle runner.  He said it's the best he's ever seen the Cedar Room look and that the pictures from our wedding of the room are going to go in their brochure!  So if that does happen, hopefully Linen Effects will get mentioned.  Thanks again for being so helpful and for tying our room together perfectly for our wedding!

Hi Russ, 

When the CEO's wife stepped into the dinner room for a sneak preview, I knew we hit a home run by her reaction and comments about the decor. She absolutely loved it, and so did many others. It was not expected in the least, and the pop of color and fun added so much to making it even more festive and celebratory. 

Thanks for your consulting expertise.

The bar was just beautiful and I so wish that you could have seen it that evening.  Thanks so much for finding the bar as it was absolutely perfect for this event.  The farm tables were perfect as well -- everything was!

Dear Sofitel Staff,

All of us with the Bechtel Social Club wish to express our gratitude in how things were prepared and presented at our January 14, 2012 Holiday Party.

A special thank you to Wendy for being so attentive and overseeing. Everything from start to finish was perfect.

Unfortunately, we do not remember all the names of those that assisted us but all were very professional. The hospitality and service that was provided by all of you was superb. Holly was very attentive to our needs, no matter what it was she was there in an instant and had everything taken care of.

The bartenders and the wait staff were both efficient and friendly. I know our group can drink just a little and spend significant time hanging out at the bar. Even with that, the staff was always on top of their game and had a kind word to share.

Linen Effects did a beautiful job setting up the dining area with the linens and flowers. When we weren’t sure of how things would look, Robin reassured us it would be perfect and it was just lovely.

Thank you, Swank Audio and Visual for the lovely music during our social hour. Mina and Colin were both very accommodating
Also, the rooms that were reserved for the evening were very relaxing and stylish.

Our overall experience with everyone and everything was fantastic. We wouldn’t have changed a thing.

Sincerely,

The Bechtel Social Club

Dear Russ,

Sorry for typing this note, but I have a lot to say and typing goes a ton faster then my handwriting and the massive carpal tunnel syndrome. As always..... THANK YOU for everything!! The boys were amazed and we out did ourselves and exceeded their expectations. Melrose is never going to forget this one. Phillip gave me a not so nice scare. He came down when I was setting up and said, "This is the linen that LE sent? It's not what we picked." Followed by a huge burst of laughter. Totally freaked me out and my heart stopped for at least 4 minutes. Good thing he revived me with a huge hug and smile. OMG!

Can't wait to get all the photos and submit this one to MN Bride. Though MN is behind on equal rights marriage... I want all of MN to know that two same sex people can enjoy a celebration and expose it to family and friends, just as everyone else. Keep your fingers crossed.

Looking forward to the rest of our events this year and into next year!! I can't tell you, how much I enjoy working with you -- just so easy and I know I can always count on you and the rest of the LE crew for the non-stop wonderful service.

You should have come for a drink on the terrace!! Weather held out so we were so pleased that even during the cocktail hour the sun came out. The room was gorgeous! So was the bride if I don’t say so myself J I have pictures on my face book if you want to be friends with me!! Julia took pictures of the table but, the head table is missing the bridesmaids flowers so it doesn’t do justice. The linens were just beautiful ! The Luge tablelinens was really cool as well as the sparkly head table. I won’t have professional shots for about 4 weeks. Can’t wait! The flowers were to die for! We had sooooo much fun though out this experience. I’m so blessed to have two daughters so I get to do it again!! Hopefully in the near future. Tim put a video together from his I Phone pictures, too. It’s on face book too. I will defiantly send you pictures. I can’t tell you how beautiful it was. We got lots of complements. Huge party we danced all night!!!

You were a thrill to work with!

Russ,

Thank you so much for your work in the hot sun to turn my backyard into a dream. Several people told us that it was not what they expected with a backyard wedding and more than one young lady told me that it was pure magic. Your touch is indescribable and you far exceeded my expectations. Your use of the full space (slopes and all) left people describing things in the exact words that fit the emotion I was trying to evoke, “combining nature and elegance”…“Sheik and trendy”…I wish I could recall the phrase I heard yesterday to describe the gold beaded cloths, suffice it to say that they were as perfect as I thought they were the day I first saw them. You are such a kind man and I have enjoyed meeting with you for the last 11 months.

Thank you again for your great work.

Best Regards,

Hi Don,

How are you? I’m not sure if you remember me—you helped me GREATLY one day. I was looking for black and white table cloths for my wedding, and you brought me all over your building to look for them…Introduced me to your dog, showed me some ideas on your computer, etc. And now Linen Effects is supplying me with the linens for my New Years Eve wedding at Windows on MN.

I fell head over heels in love with your company the moment I laid eyes on it. The way your team interacts with guests, and the level of service you offer stands out from the rest. I know that this is a strange request, but would you ever have any need for another member on your team? I am currently employed at ****** , where a lot of my job responsibilities include the planning of events. My official cover letter and resume are attached, but I’d love to just sit down and chat with you regarding your needs for an assistant, sales rep or coordinator. With my background in marketing, management & customer service, I think we’d make a great team.

Please let me know your thoughts!

We just got home last night. Everything, and I mean everything, was absolutely fabulous. The little lounge you created was fantastic and such a hit. Of course, with the cool evening, we had everyone inside, but I still loved the look of the bar tables outside. The lighting both in the bar and tent was beautiful. The tent was stupendous. Elizabeth could not believe how wonderful everything was. The flowers in the centerpieces and all of the warm colors made for a glorious evening.
I can not begin to tell you how much I also loved the wedding dining room. It was magical. Thanks for all of your help in putting together this wonderful wedding event. I could not have asked for more.
Sincerely,
Marcia

Dear Russ,

Two weeks later and we are still basking in the afterglow of Naomi and Matt's wedding at the Marriott! We can't thank you enough for the outstanding job you did in creating and executing all of the magnificent decor.

You are masterful in your profession and you helped make our daughter's wedding one that we, and all of our 438 guests, will remember and treasure for the rest of our lives! We have received may letters, filled with superlatives and thanks for the elegant and flawless event that it was.

We enjoyed working with you and would not hesitate for a moment to work with you again on future events. We also want you to know that we would be honored to be a reference for you with potential future clients.

Once again, we thank you and your staff from the bottom of our hearts for all that you did to make our wedding weekend one of the best in our lives!

With appreciation and admiration,

Diane and Jon R.

SUBJECT: WEDDING WAS A HIT

Hi Russ-just want you to know the wedding was sensational!!! The Northland looked absolutely beautiful thanks to your help - the draping was swagged perfectly, the stage was beautiful, the llinens perfect!!! I wish you could of seen it all put together with the florists beautiful work and the mood lighting-Russ it was a sight to behold-nothing like it. There is not one thing I would have done different.

Dear Russ,
Thank you very much for all of your work in making the Colin Powell Youth Leadership Center Grand Opening come together wonderfully. The event was a great success and the client was very pleased with the results.
I really appreciate that you were able to come through and help us with a last minute detail with the chair covers. Your on-time delivery really helped us be able to complete all of our set-up items on time. The chair covers looked great and really helped to bring the room together.
Again, thanks for all of the hard work on your end. I look forward to getting to work with you again on future events.
Thank you,

Hi Robin, All I can say is the linens were fabulous, really making the decor. I received so many compliments on them, told everyone where they came from, and Betsy was thrilled and so was I. The tent was beautiful with them, and when I got up on the stage to welcome everyone and toast the bride and groom, I was blown away at how pretty the tables were.

The wedding was a big success in spite of the rain, The ceremony, tents, food, flowers, and band were GREAT, and I think everyone had a fun time. When the photos arrive, I will send you some. I think it was the prettiest wedding around!!!!

Thank you so much for everything. It was really a pleasure working with you.

Best wishes,
Chichi

Dear Russ,
We hope you had a Merry Christmas! We want to thank you so much for decorating our reception. It was gorgeous! I think my Grandma summed it up best by saying, "I opened the doors and thought I was in heaven". People are still talking about our linens! Thank you for making our wedding very memorable.

Thanks again,

Hi Russ,

The evening was wonderful... although I'm glad it's over (the organizing/work part of it that is).
Thank YOU and YOUR STAFF very very much. The room was amazing! I'm so glad you and Julie assured me that the tall decorations would be spectacular. I don't have a vision for that sort of thing.
Bob was very pleased with everything. Earle Brown staff told both of us that this is the best decorated room they have ever seen, even better than all the weddings they have had there over the years! They were even impressed.
Is the last invoice you sent the final complete invoice? I'd like to get payments all wrapped up this week if at all possible.
All in all, the evening was a huge success. Thank you again for all your hard work.

Dear Robin,
We are absolutely indebted to you for working your magic on the St. Paul’s ballroom. Your talent helped transform it into the most romantic, beautiful room. Did you know Barb said the hotel may want to use a photo for their wedding brochure?! Thank you for your expertise and good advice and above all, for being such a nice person throughout it all!

Our very best to you,

Dear Mr. Jensen:
Although our event was over a month ago, I still felt compelled to write you a heart-felt thanks for the wonderful service and consulting we received from your company. Despite our small budget and shrinking needs as we finalized our decorations plan, Russ Mohr was always available and offered his best with a smile. I do realize that many people would not take the time and energy to provide 100% customer service for a small order. That is what makes Mr. Mohr’s attention to our account special. I will be sure to refer Linen Effects for both small and big events I come across in the future.

Sincerely,

Dear Russ,
Forgive me for taking so long to write and thank you for all of your help with the E----/E----- wedding last month at the Landmark Center. From the very beginning when you met with us, you were so patient and easy to work with. At the event, the guests marveled at the elegant vision you and your crew created and the bride and groom were so pleased with the results.

If you ever need a reference, please don’t hesitate to give our email or telephone number. We were so happy with your service and look forward to working with you again in the future.

Again, many thanks,

Dear Robin and Russ,
Thank you for everything you did for my wedding. Everything turned out beautifully. The Sage Dot tablecloth was perfect with the crystal candelabras, along with the matching napkin. I have been meaning to send you these pictures for some time—

Hope you both are having a Happy New Year!

Love,

Russ,

Robin-
We would like to thank your for all your help and terrific suggestions for our linen selection. Our wedding was perfect! We couldn’t believe how beautiful the chair covers were and how much they dressed up the place. You and Linen Effects will come highly recommended by us and we thank you again!

Sincerely,
Mike and Natalie A. 

Don:
This is a long overdue email regarding Russ Mohr. I have had several events this past year and one late last year that I have worked with Russ on coordinating. Russ is not only accommodating, he’s creative, thoughtful and calm. He takes time to listen and understand his client’s needs. He doesn’t hesitate to pinch hit in a crisis situation to a fellow vendor often when the client isn’t even aware. He spends extra time on finding just the right centerpiece, charger plate, overlay, or whatever it may be to add that finishing touch to create a successful event.

Allianz Life honors the relationship that we have with Linen Effects and dually respects the ongoing professional working relationship that we have with Russ Mohr. Well, I know that you are grinning from ear to ear, I think you should give him the rest of the day off for all his hard work and efforts.

Have a good weekend.

Dear Robin,
Thank you so much for all your help during the planning of all my wedding details. You were such a pleasure to work with and you always made me feel comfortable and confident in what we were choosing for our linens and rentals. The ballroom at the Lafayette Club looked so beautiful and I really owe a lot of it to you recommending the gold damask. Thank you for all your kindness. I will definitely recommend you to everyone.

Thanks again.
