"I was hesitant to hire a planner for my wedding thinking I could do most of the planning on my own, but I found Patrick and Glenn while attending a wedding they planned. I can honestly say I had no idea just how much was involved in planning a wedding, it's a full-time job! Trevor and I are so grateful to Patrick and Glenn for their expertise and being three steps ahead of us the entire time. Details I didn't even consider, they were on top of, always making great recommendations and coming up with multiple plans for the unexpected. I felt they always had our best interests in mind and coordinated with all our vendors to make our dream day come true. Thank you for a perfect day!"

"My husband and I planned a destination wedding at Beaches Turks and Caicos. While the resort offers a great program and support, we knew we needed a professional looking out for us throughout the planning process and during our resort experience. Hiring Magnum Opus was the BEST decision we could have made. While working with Beaches, you are assigned one contact while preplanning and a completely different team onsite. This stressed me and my husband out to no end, but Patrick and Glenn were there for us through each detail and new development that occurred. When we arrived on site, we connected them with the Beaches team and the guys took it from there. We literally had no worries from that point on. They had an extremely detailed plan which they kept us on at all times and ensured we arrived on time for each event. On the wedding day, they guided our entire wedding party and guests through every point of the ceremony and reception to perfection. I know my guests were impressed with how they worked with the resort staff and my husband and I could not be more grateful to them."

"I wanted to plan a surprise 40th birthday for my husband with a group trip to Las Vegas. I had a few ideas, but thought I needed some help. I found Patrick and Glenn through friends who highly recommended them. Not being a wedding, I wasn't sure they would be interested in helping, but boy was I wrong. Patrick and Glenn provided amazing recommendations to make the surprise truly special. They worked with our hotel staff to plan multiple events for our small group in our suite and also found exciting options that spoke to my husband's preferences. All details worked well with each other and made the entire trip stress free and so enjoyable for me and my husband."

"Having Glenn and Patrick for our wedding was invaluable! They possess great communication skills, professionalism, and organization. Glenn was such a calming presence throughout planning and especially on our wedding day. They worked with all of the vendors leading up to and the day of our wedding, so that it was one less thing for us to worry about. The set up was absolutely gorgeous- Glenn made sure every idea we had came to life. He made sure we had every little thing we needed the day of without being intrusive. I can honestly say our wedding day was completely flawless and exactly what we imagined, all thanks to Glenn and Patrick. Best decision we made!"
"Patrick is an incredible partner to have on your team when planning a wedding and he is there every step of the way to guide, provide advice, work with vendors, and even offer encouragement through the stressful times of planning that are more personal than professional issues. We felt like we were in capable and caring hands throughout the process, and seeing Patrick there as I was about to walk down the aisle with a big smile on his face was something I'll always remember."
"The service provided by Patrick was phenomenal. I had very little knowledge of what went into planning a wedding when I started. I had many specific questions throughout the entire process. Patrick responded promptly to every email I sent and gave great advice that made the whole process much easier! The day of went of without a hitch! Patrick was very accommodating and attentive throughout the entire event Friends and Family are still raving about how beautiful our wedding was and how well organized it was! A few even said it was the best wedding they've ever been too."
"Patrick Butler and the staff always went above and beyond. My father is in a wheelchair and we had a few special requests to make the wedding day go as smoothly for him as possible; Patrick was accommodating and utterly professional at every turn. He was extremely responsive to every email and query anyone involved with our wedding sent."
"As MOB I just wanted to say how grateful I am to Patrick for all his help and support during the wedding planning process. Residing in another state, and unable to personally oversee every detail, I really appreciated his timely responses to my emails. He always had an answer and/or a solution for all and no question or request was too simple or small to warrant his attention."
-Diane, Mother of the Bride
"My fiance and I cannot possibly thank Patrick Butler enough for giving us a perfect day in spite of a 1,000-year storm hitting the area! We were so upset when we realized we were going to have rain for our rehearsal dinner and wedding day, but Patrick and his team went above and beyond to be flexible with us and delivered incredible customer service. For every component of our wedding compromised by the rain, Patrick had a solution and accommodated us far beyond what we had ever imagined."
"Patrick and his staff were so helpful, from the first day we toured the venue to the day after my daughter's wedding when we picked up some personal items. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful the wedding was."
-Milissa, Mother of the Bride
"Patrick is hands down the best and made every second of my experience so easy. He is organized, friendly, and so helpful when it came to coordinating all of the different vendors. All of my vendors were from his recommended list and I couldn't be more happy with my choices. Patrick is so detail oriented and responsive that you will rest easy knowing you chose Magnum Opus!"
"In closely working on events with Patrick these past nine years, I have enjoyed a front-row seat to his diligence, dedication and hard work, attention to detail, and incredible style and taste. The culmination of his talent was so beautifully brought to bear at his wedding to Glenn that I remember thinking “He’s ruined me for all weddings, it’s stunning and perfect!”
I trust Patrick entirely and am more than excited to see his vision and creativity come to life under Magnum Opus Events."

-Amy Webb, Owner
"I have had the pleasure and honor of working with Patrick and Glenn for the past 8 years on numerous events. The creativity, thoughtfulness, and personal touches that they bring to each of their events makes all the difference. I can tell you that no one will work harder and more diligently to make sure that everything is perfect. Their attention to detail is unparalleled. To have that combined with a sophisticated eye for design and a heart that is truly in love with people and their stories is rare.
Entrusting Patrick and Glenn to create your magnum opus will be the best event decision that you will make."
-Cristelle Koerper, Catering Director
"I so enjoy working with Patrick and Glenn so much that I do everything I can to make time for their clients in our schedule! Not only are their events beautiful, unique, creative and fun, they are well organized and details are superbly attended. Patrick and Glenn put 100% into all they do and it is obvious they love it! As a cake designer, I appreciate that they honor the place the cake has in the wedding and work with me on the details of design, placement and display. In addition, they seem to have a special talent for bringing out the best in me. I could not recommend them more highly."

-Jason and Tammy Keefer, Owners
"As a photographer who has made a career documenting weddings and events throughout the U.S. and abroad, I am thrilled to work with an event planner that is organized, attentive, and at the same time, allows a couple to enjoy their day without being too obtrusive. In my opinion, this is the number one characteristic a couple should look for on the day of their wedding. Sophisticated clients will find themselves attracted to Patrick and Glenn's subtle and attentive demeanor.
We had the pleasure of being selected to document their own wedding in Charlottesville, Virginia and were immediately attracted to their sense of style and their own personal attention to detail.
We sincerely look forward to weddings where Patrick and Glenn are behind the scenes. My wife and I will always consider their friendship a treasure."
-Rob Garland, Owner

Having the amazing planning team of Magnum Opus Events will be one of the best decisions you can make!"
