Hear from our 5-Star families on what working with West Rock Events is like!
“Wow, what a night!! We cannot thank you enough for all of the time and energy you put into making sure all of the details of our party were perfect. You were kind, patient, and calm all along the way and the end product was exactly as we envisioned and more! You really struck the perfect balance between asserting your opinions when needed and letting us run with ours at other times. You executed ideas to perfection, stayed on top vendors, and didn't let anything fall through the cracks. You looked out for our best interest at all times. Our friends were so complimentary of our decor and the party in general. SO much positive feedback! You are so talented at what you do and we will highly recommend you in the future for any of our friends' party planning and decor needs. We are still riding high from the night that we will remember forever. Please thank Jordana as well-she is so great-always sweet and diligent and was constantly looking out for us all on Saturday night. She single-handedly kept our entire family hydrated! You guys are a great team and we absolutely cannot thank you enough!
Looking forward to debriefing some more sometime soon.”

“Our daughter's bat mitzvah was above and beyond our expectations, all thanks to Conni and the West Rock Team! From the very beginning, Conni was lovely to work with as well as knowledgeable, with creative suggestions for various budget points. She steered us in the right direction for every aspect: the entertainment, set up, timing and decor. Our friends couldn't believe how the space had been transformed! Her goal for the entire event was to make sure Leila was happy, and that we as parents could enjoy the night. And that is exactly what happened, our family had the most amazing night, enjoying our family and friends, while Conni and her team handled the details. We will never plan a party without Conni by our side!”

“Conni - What can we say…? You planned the best night of our lives. It’s that simple. The Westrock Events team went above and beyond in every way possible for Ryan and Mia’s B’nai Mitzvah. From beginning to end you help plan every detail, coordinate every vendor, ensure every item was in place, and most importantly allowed us to enjoy the night without having to worry about anything. You have been doing this for so long and it certainly showed. All your suggestions and ideas for the party, for the guests, and for us were spot on. What made the process so easy for us was how you listened to our wants and needs and communicated on the good, the bad, and the difficult. If an issue came up, you didn’t just have one answer but you had multiple answers. From the first day we met, we knew we were in the best possible hands to turn our dream and vision into reality. You really became a part of the family and took as much pride in the party as we did. The Messinger family will be forever grateful for all your hard work and effort.”

"I am not sure I have the words to properly convey how incredible our experience at Club Trick was. Conni is truly so talented and the outcome of our affair was flawless. Every detail of decor, planning, and vendors that she recommended and helped us work with made this experience so fantastic- we are truly sad it is over and can't wait to plan something with you again soon. From the beginning of our planning journey, Conni assured us whatever our intentions, wants and budget she would help make it happen- and she absolutely did- and so much more. It was a pleasure to work with Conni and haven't stopped relishing in the aftermath of the joy from our party. The compliments on every detail from food, to the centerpieces, to the lighting and even the candle lighting has been nonstop. Her creativity, honesty and time that you gave us was only a small part. We couldn't recommend Conni and Club Trick more and thank you so much for making our son's special day a forever happiest moment for all of us. You make the magic happen!!!!!"

"We had our daughter's Bat Mitzvah at West Rock and could not have been happier or more impressed with the entire team. Conni was such a pleasure to work with. She is creative, organized, and patient and her easy-going personality made the planning process fun and relaxed. She knows how to work within a budget and can help make decisions as to how the dollars are best spent. She doesn't let anything fall through the cracks and at the end of the day, there were never problems -- just solutions. The event totally exceeded our expectations and we can't wait to work with Conni again on our next event!"

“I have never in my life met with a person that made a complicated and an overwhelming process look so easy. Conni and her team of experts are attentive to your every needs and wants and produce an extraordinary masterpiece for you. They are professionals! They are organized and are on top of their game! I would not plan another party without them. They work with any budget and give you their honest feedback while planning. They have been in the business for years and work with some of the top names in the entertainment industry. This team not only exceeds your expectations, they make your dream become a reality. Thank you Conni and team. This won’t be the last time you hear from me!”

“Conni and her team helped us plan the perfect Bat Mitzvah celebration for our daughter. She transformed an empty basketball court into a party space/night club with all of our daughter's favorite colors, and incorporated her theme in ways we could not have thought of on our own. In addition to creating the party of our dreams, Conni's presence on the night of the party allowed us to fully enjoy the celebration and not have to worry about anything.”

“Conni and her team are the best! They handled everything for my daughter’s bat mitzvah from nuts to bolts… from our first meeting where they outlined everything I would need to do up until that last song was played at the party and everything in between. We knew we were in the best hands and didn’t have to worry about things so we could enjoy the whole process and night!”

Despite the challenges with the pandemic, Conni worked with us every step of the way to create a classy and creative event that made everyone feel comfortable. She went over and above with every single detail and was able to address all of our requests. Our guests are still raving about what a fantastic and special celebration we had.

“We threw our twins B'Nei Mitzvah with West Rock Events and it was beyond our expectations . Conni is such a talented, creative and helpful event planner. She has amazing vision. We chose to move the party outdoors and she was able to decorate in such a way that you would have thought you were inside. Conni was able to point me in the right direction for entertainment, photography, catering, and swag. Conni and her crew are extremely professional, helpful and just amazing. They took care of everything, and the event ran so smoothly. My Husband and I did not have to worry about a thing, which allowed us to enjoy the party. Our friends and family are still talking about what a great time they had 8 months later. If you want to have the most awesome party you can't go wrong with Conni and West Rock Events.”

“Just a note of appreciation for Conni Ricca. She made planning our twins b'nai mitzvah in the midst of Covid so easy and fun. She was reassuring, creative, organized and inventive. Her goal, at every stage, was to make sure that Margo and Benjamin had the best time at their party and that I was able to enjoy the night as well. I can say with certainty that we did just that! We all danced, drank and ate the night away. She transformed the backyard into a rocking dance club and it was all done with Covid protocols intact. The feedback was incredible. Every guest said they had the best night ever! And boy, did we need that after the year we've had. I can't sing her praises loud enough. We will be sure to tell everyone how West Rock made Margo and Benjamin's b'nai rock!”

"We wanted to say a huge thank you for hosting our boys B’nai Mitzvah celebration. After being canceled in March 2020 and such disappointment from the pandemic, you guys were patient, understanding and a pleasure to work with as you made all the accommodations needed to throw an outdoor tented party that was covid safe for our guests only 14 months after our original date. You were able to downsize the event and make what would have been indoors and brought it outdoors safely! With all the stress of planning and added stress of covid, you somehow made it all stress free for us! It was a party we will never forget! Thank you again!"

"Trust us, you want Conni planning your party. We worked with West Rock on a party for our daughter's Bat Mitzvah, and everything was PERFECT. The planning, preparation and expertise that Conni and her staff incorporated blew us (and our guests) away. She was right on 100% of her suggestions and recommendations, and put out fires left and right. Her relationships with the vendors put us in an amazing position to use the best people around while being treated fairly. The details that went into making this party above and beyond our expectations were just incredible. From hanging balloons from the tent to the games for the kids to the couches/dance floor and decor all contributed to making the night special for our daughter and guests. This also goes for Sam and the rest of the staff...Everyone was amazing - professional, friendly, helpful, there when we needed them but not in our faces when we didn't. We cannot recommend West Rock highly enough."
