What our customers say about us

“We chose Patra Designs as the event planner for our annual event. What a fantastic experience it was working with Durga and her associates. They were extremely organized, creative in developing the theme, attentive to even the tiniest details, while remaining mindful of the limited budget of our company.”

“Working with Patra Designs was truly a pleasure. We entrusted all the logistics of our Grand Opening to Patra Designs. We were thoroughly impressed with their professionalism, resourcefulness, meticulous attention to detail, organization and commitment to the success of our Opening.”

“From beginning to end Durga provided a professional hand in assisting us to have a fantastic wedding. Her flexibility throughout the process was appreciated as she would take on things that needed to be handled, but would leave us the things that we wanted to direct. Her eye for details and overall organization was truly impressive. I cannot think of how someone could have done a better job!”

“As a food service professional, I was nervous about how well someone could run my daughter’s wedding, as I have done so many myself in the course of my career. Durga eliminated all my doubts at our first meeting. The wedding turned out to be the dream wedding my daughter wanted, and I was happy to be allowed to enjoy it thoroughly as the mother of the bride. Durga is amazing!”

“Durga is dedicated, intelligent, caring and creative – an unparalleled combination in one wedding planner.”

“Durga is absolutely wonderful person! Very professional, extremely pleasant and a high energy person. A great personality to do business with!”

“Durga was able to pull together every detail that we’d spent months planning into a beautiful day. I don’t know what we would have done without her.””Character and integrity with great design and attention to detail. Durga is a pleasure to work with.”

“Patra Designs is world class when it comes to event planning – professional and creative. Big thinking, yet amazing attention to detail… perfect choice for wedding planner!”

“Thank you for all your help with our event. We really enjoyed working with you and admire your professionalism.”

“Words are not adequate to thank you for your help, concern, enthusiasm and commitment. You were always so “tuned in” to our ideas, our needs and our feelings. You worked hard to make everything go smoothly, but made it look effortless. The result was – to put it simply – perfection!”

“Durga has phenomenal taste and crafts the look of each celebration down to the smallest detail. The end result of her efforts is always a stunning event that ensures cherished memories.”

“I don’t know quite how to even begin to thank you for a wedding that surpassed even my own wildest expectations. You helped us create such a beautiful and memorable event. The Ceremony & Reception exceeded our expectations in all respects.”

​”Your attention to all the minutiae combined with your sorceress-like ability to envision and execute the design reflecting our style has resulted in a truly memorable occasion for us. Needless to say, we are grateful!”

“After visiting several florists in the Cleveland area (and growing increasingly panicked and frustrated as my wedding was quickly approaching) I found Durga at Patra Designs! Durga and her team were amazing! Their personalized service and attention to detail made me feel overly comfortable and confident and I was not disappointed. Durga made it her mission to select the best quality flowers for my wedding and it showed. More than a handful of my guests commented that my flowers were the most beautiful they had ever seen. I’d highly recommend contacting Durga for your next event, she will go above and beyond to make it spectacular.”

“It was a pleasure to work with Durga and her team. They were meticulous in the planning and execution and covered every minute detail to make the wedding day a truly a perfect one. Having a wedding planner took a lot of the strain away from us as the parents of the bride. We have no hesitation in recommending them to other parents who are planning weddings. Our guest kept raving about the ceremony and the wedding celebration. Durga and team will go to any length to accommodate any special requests you have to make the wedding day a truly special one for the entire family.”

“Durga coordinated our multiple day Indian wedding in California from Cleveland. Everything was perfect from planning to actual coordination. She is very trustworthy, warm, encouraging and was always positive. Always was immediately available. Highly recommend. You’ll love her.”
