I hired Gthr for day of coordination a few months before my wedding. I’m a very hands on bride who planned every detail of my wedding, but am so thankful I hired Sarah & her team. I did have some last minute decor questions & requests and Gthr partnered with me on making them a reality! We worked together on floral design, beautiful vine walls, additional lighting, and everything in between. Sarah had a baby a week before my wedding and still showed up, helped with set up, and assisted in managing last minute hiccups and issues with my vendors. She went above & beyond. I highly recommend hiring her team for your next event!

We could not have asked for a more perfect wedding day, and we are so thankful to Blaire, Sharon, and Hannah for helping to make it happen. We got the Love Package for design, styling, and coordination, which was the best investment we could make when planning. From start to finish, the team was responsive and attentive to every question and concern I had. Blaire understood my vision well, and it was amazing to see it all come together in our reception room reveal. Joyfully helped to create a beautiful design that had the romantic feel I wanted, bringing my various ideas together into a cohesive look. Rentals by them were also a great addition that helped to take the stress off figuring out the little details and logistics with decor. As for coordination, they truly delivered. They were so helpful and supportive especially in the last week leading up to the event, remaining flexible with last minute changes that arose. I felt very much taken care of during our rehearsal which eased my anxiety going in, and the day played out as well as it could have. We are still getting compliments from our friends and family about how beautiful and well run our wedding was. While I had most of the planning in place, it felt so good to have Joyfully take the reins in the last month and keep everything on track for us on the day of. In sum, I cannot express enough how grateful we are to have had Joyfully as part of our wedding dream team. I would absolutely hire them again for future special occasions (Korean dohl perhaps? :)) and recommend to anyone looking for an incredibly well executed event with the ultimate support - you will not regret it!

My name is Kimberly and I’m a Disneyland bride. After almost a three year wedding postponement, I finally had my big day. I realized there were many moments during my wedding day, I wished I could have “cloned” myself. There were so many little things that needed my attention and being the bride, I wasn’t able to attend to them. I had to have either a bridesmaid or my mother handle it, which wasn’t ideal. I wanted everyone in the moment and enjoying the day with me. That’s the moment I realized I needed to prevent moments like this from happening to other wedding couples.

She gave me a peace of mind that my wedding would be beautiful and well decorated. She paid attention to details, and stayed with a theme. The florals for all of the tables, restrooms, and high tops were perfect. She also decorated our ceremony arch, aisle, and end of row of chairs for ceremony. I had Joey also decorate our cake with the same florals she used for the table settings. I loved Joey’s unique take on a travel theme and how she tied in our travels for the table settings.

Blissfully Styled Events

Placentia, CA
  • Offers 2 services
  • Starts at $4,500

Karen Sieger founded Blissfully Styled Events with one simple goal: to provide a planning process couples could actually enjoy. As the go-to event enthusiast any time her friends were planning a celebration, she’d long dreamt of planning parties professionally, but it wasn’t until 2016—when a vendor at her sister’s wedding was surprised to hear Karen wasn’t actually a professional wedding planner—that she decided to leave behind a 20-year career as a real estate executive and make the leap she’d long contemplated.

Karen and her team have gone above and beyond to help coordinate our wedding back in April and we are still dreaming of that wonderful day! I was originally in the planning process with another coordinator who had a job switch during this process and thus I was referred to Karen. Right off the bat Karen was super on top of everything, and so kind and patient, also just fun to work with. We hit it off with her right away – she was super responsive and knowledgeable. On our wedding day and rehearsal as well she kept the whole crew on top of everything, and everything ran on time and seamlessly. I remember she came over to us during dinner reception and reminded us to take a moment to take it all in with each other – I now realized how important that was as I am still dreaming of that day and reliving all the moments in my mind. At the end of the evening – everything got packed neatly away into our cars so all we had to do was drive back. It was so amazing to work with her we cannot thank her and her team enough for their efforts to make our special day the best ever.

People danced, laughed, cooked, played music and forgot their troubles. I always marveled over it, how a party could be so magical.

I cannot say how much we appreciated McKenna. She was easy to get ahold of any time we needed her before the wedding and helped us think through many things we ourselves might not have thought of. We were supposed to have an outdoor wedding but the weather said otherwise. The whole week before she worked with all our vendors, the venue and us to make sure that even with the change of plans our day went perfectly. She made the whole day flow and my husband and I were able to spend the entire time just enjoying our love and the support of our family and friends. She is worth booking 100%

With her extensive experience in Fashion Merchandising, Design, Styling, Business Mind & Event Coordinating Carolyn took her experience and vision to create her own company, Fête Events. Carolyn’s combination of energy & organization makes each of her events stand out among the rest. She combines her corporate training, design background with her amazing attention to detail, which creates timeless and unforgettable unique celebrations.

Awarded Best of Zola
Hiring Carolyn from Fête Events was honestly the best decision I ever made for my wedding. We had an interfaith Muslim/Hindu Indian wedding and with that, can come with some complexities. She was able to handle day of coordination flawlessly (managing not one but TWO baraats and working with our siblings who weren't used to officiating for an interfaith ceremony) while also providing excellent design details with florals. Carolyn has such a kind, warm personality that can make anyone feel at ease. I also love the small touches like coming over to my hotel room with a bag of goodies to make me feel relaxed on my wedding morning (I was not expecting that at all but it was super nice to see her and her presence def put me at ease). After the wedding, both my sister-in-law and mom mentioned how great and professional Carolyn was at her job. (It's not just coming from me!) If I hadn't hired her, our wedding day would def not have flowed as smoothly and I am eternally grateful for her.

I plan weddings in Los Angeles, Central Coast, and Orange/Ventura/San Diego Counties.

Awarded Best of Zola
My fiance and I were connected with Tavi through a recommendation from the Capri Hotel in Ojai, where we knew we wanted to have our wedding. We planned the whole thing for 100 people in just under 6 months because of a mid-wedding-planning pregnancy surprise :) Tavi was SO incredibly helpful throughout the whole process, she was the perfect balance of calm and professional and friendly, which was just what we were looking for during what could have been a very hectic time. She completely understood our balance of traditional/nontraditional, and she was always so communicative and available any time we needed her. If you want someone to truly help you execute your wedding vision, not interject with too many opinions, but still provide helpful and relevant advice, Tavi is your person. She communicated with all our vendors, which was the most important element to me, and she worked tirelessly the day of the wedding to keep everything running smoothly. She even managed to help us will away the cold, windy rain on our wedding day for a perfect 3-hour sunny window to have our ceremony and outdoor dinner ;) (Okay, that last part may have been out of her control, but she kept us cool and calm and it all worked out, so I'm going to give it to her anyway!) Thank you so much Tavi!!

Hiring Carissa for our wedding day was one of the best decisions we made throughout the entire planning process. Carissa is extremely professional, organized, and detail-oriented. We were so lucky to have her on our side, and she was a huge part of why our day went so smoothly! We hired her to help us with our venue search and then for her month-of coordination package, and I truly appreciated that she was available to answer questions over email or text at any time during the wedding planning process. We also loved that every month she sent us a to-do list of what we should be working on to make sure we were on track with planning our wedding. Carissa has an incredible eye for detail - there were so many little things that went into our big day that we would not have even thought about if it weren't for her. Carissa kept both of us calm, on track, and as realistically on budget as possible throughout the planning process. We can't thank Carissa enough for all that she did to help make our dream wedding come true. We would highly recommend Carissa to anyone planning their wedding. She is the absolute best!

Awarded Best of Zola
Kiss and Say I Do Events is an incredible business operated by a team of consummate professionals who provide a refreshing level of care and detail in all their efforts and interactions. While most of our interactions were with Karla, the owner of the business, we wanted to take a moment to highlight the rest of her team and thank them for the wonderful job they did. Each member of her team that we came across was a delight to interact with and contributed towards giving us the most wonderful wedding we could have hoped for. As for Karla herself, what is there to say? She is simply outstanding. Going far beyond what we would have expected of any planner, Karla deftly walked the fine line between being a service provider and becoming a dear friend. There is such sincerity in all her interactions that her desire to give her clients the best event she possibly can becomes undeniable. If you are looking for a recommendation, there is no one we can imagine doing a better job at navigating the intricacies of planning a wedding than Karla and the Kiss and Say I Do team. When we first hired Karla, we were just looking for a solid planner because we were planning our wedding from out of the country. By the end, we were so happy that she was able to witness our wedding because we genuinely wanted her there just as much as any guest. She didn’t just manage contracts and vendors; she offered support to us during family drama and various stressors that developed during our planning period. We bonded over similar heritages and life experiences, we laughed over my now-husband’s dumb jokes, and we all sighed together over planning headaches we couldn’t avoid. Even though she became so much more than just a wedding planner, she remained an absolute rockstar on the day of our wedding. We had so many guests come up to us and tell us we had a perfect wedding or that it was the best wedding they’d ever been to, but the highest praise we can give is that we didn’t feel an ounce of stress on our wedding day. If anything went wrong or not according to plan, we had no idea and never felt it. All we had on our day was love and joy, and we are so grateful that Karla and her team were able to create that for us.

I worked at a country club in the summers before my freshman and sophomore year of college, I worked on the food and beverage staff which included being a banquet server, and can you guess which was my favorite shift to work, you guessed it, the weddings. Once I got to the point in my life where my friends were starting to get engaged and I was a bridesmaid in their weddings, I found myself taking on extra duties and wanting to be more involved that it hit me, I need to pursue being an event planner.

Day of the wedding is when she really shines. She is so organized that I did not lift a finger, and everything ran so smooth and on time (even have had some guests comment on that). It ended up raining the day of our wedding and Miranda managed to find umbrellas for all my guests so we could still have our wedding outside where we had envisioned it. Words can't express how grateful I am for her. She goes above and beyond for her couples. Hire this woman!

Chelsea/Lucky Day Events is amazing!! From our first appointment, and after meeting with many others we thought could work, we knew she was the one. She is a true professional in every sense of the word. The exact person you want not only helping you, organising etc but also the best friend/sister/mother you never knew you had that you actually want by your side and will miss when it's all over. We were so taken care of in every way!!! From picking decorations/options/the best vendors to helping with where we could save and areas where we might want to spend more, to timelines and reminders/ to the tiniest little things no one would even think about!!! She had a plan for all. And an amazing ease, calm and confidence that was beyond comforting. Not only did we love her, but our families did too and after the wedding the venue and rabbi even asked for her info. She is truly amazing in EVERY way and we couldn't have asked for more. Lastly, she came highly recommended from a friend who had also used her for her and her husbands wedding, and we (yes my husband loved her too) can not recommend her enough. Don't waste time with others, trust me, Chelsea/Lucky Day Events is everything!!!! If you want an amazing event, the ease you would never expect to accompany it, and all that comes in between, Lucky Day is a no brainer.

Highly recommend CDE! We worked closely with Cassandra since our wedding was based in LA and both her and Glennie were extremely detail oriented and helpful in ensuring we reached our dream wedding goals. We had started working with Calmerin just 6 months before our 120 person two location wedding. We had so many questions and they made sure to help guide us along the way. Their rate was very reasonable and they had great experience in assisting us with various areas of the event. Their organizational tools via Google docs which were very detailed allowing us to make sure all pieces of details aligned.

Teyanna and Essence of Flair was truly an answer to prayer. I had a vision of what I wanted for my wedding day and she executed it perfectly. From our first meeting, she listened attentively and made sure she understood the assignment. Teyanna never tried to push her own agenda, what I wanted was always top priority. She was patient and also provided insight that helped me not only in the decor of my venue but in other areas of my wedding. Teyana was absolutely amazing. My wedding ceremony and reception were perfectly decorated and they exceeded my expectations. When I walked into the ceremony and reception area I said this is what I wanted. Teyanna held my hand through the process. If there were negative things happening, I did not know because Teyana was so in control and positive. I got so many compliments on the decor. All I can say is Essence of Flair understood my vision and followed through. Teyanna went above and beyond. I would recommend her and Essence of Flair to anyone that is planning a wedding or any special event.

Katie with Wildflowers Elegant Events was an absolute pleasure to work with! We didn't initially plan on hiring a coordinator as I am an Event Planner as a career, but we decided somewhat last minute to hire a day of coordinator so that we could focus on enjoying our special day, and I am SO glad we did! Katie jumped right in and helped us finalize the last few vendors and details that we still had left to do. She kept us on track and made sure we had all the necessary decisions and details figured out in time, and assisted with recommendations as needed. As we got a week or so out, we were getting worried about the weather and she was monitoring the weather daily with us to figure out what to do as our venue was all outdoors. She assisted us with the logistics and contacts of renting last minute tents which worked out beautifully. On the day of, in addition to keeping us sane and making sure we had time to really appreciate the day, she and her team ran point with all the vendors as they arrived, put out the decor that we had brought, and kept us on schedule for all the different parts of the day from first look photos, to ceremony, and reception, and assisted with gathering up all the decor and items at the end of the night so that we could enjoy the day and be present. Our day was absolutely perfect, and we have Katie to thank for that!

We chose to hire Carolina Becerra to be our wedding planner for our destination wedding in Mexico because she is fluent in Spanish (and English). A great planner, she organized every small detail for our wedding, which included two day trips for our guests, a dress rehearsal dinner, and day-of the wedding planning. She also made sure to communicate with us every step of the way so we were always on the same page. She also was great with the vendors in Mexico and she made sure that we had everything we needed, such as enough flowers, desserts, and lighting, etc. Carolina is equally serious and passionate about working with bridal couples to ensure they enjoy planning and celebrating their special day without any additional stress. I highly recommend Carolina as a wedding planner!

I could fill the entire Pacific Ocean with compliments for Michelle and her team. Michelle was part of our planning process for nearly 2.5 years (thanks 2020). Despite endless uncertainties, Michelle was always patient, kind, understanding, and optimistic while realistic. We always felt we could trust Michelle no matter the issue - which is the most important when choosing your vendors. Not only does she have a great eye for design, she is meticulous and detail oriented. She provided all the organization and design resources we needed and truly understood our vision. A huge plus is that she is well attuned to East Asian traditions and can speak to guests who do not understand English. There were so many details we would have missed had it not been for Michelle. Even though our bridal party and family only had short interactions with Michelle on the wedding day, they all commented and were so impressed by her level of organization, positive attitude, and constant smile. When the weather prediction showed 70% chance of rain on our wedding the entire week leading up to it, Michelle worked hard even at late hours to ensure we had a backup plan that fit our vision and communicated with our vendors for options. Not only so, she paid for an hourly weather app to see if it would stop raining by our ceremony time. By some miracle, the rain cleared. When we needed extra rentals at the last minute, Michelle went out of her way to help us pick them up and received packages for us since we were out of town. We never expected any vendor to do this for us. These are just a few examples of the numerous times she went above and beyond. Although she juggles many events, she always makes you feel like you are the top priority. Michelle will treat your wedding like her own with the full attention it deserves. Our day was perfect, all thanks to the Somni Events team!

We recently had the pleasure of working with Belinda as our elopement planner, and we couldn't be more thrilled with the incredible service she provided. Our journey with Belinda began when she was highly recommended by our fantastic wedding photographers, The Hendrys. Opting for the Remote Planning Service for our destination elopement in Pioneertown, California was one of the best decisions we made, and Belinda played a pivotal role in making our special day truly memorable. As an LGBT couple from the Philippines, planning a wedding in a foreign destination presented its own set of challenges. However, Belinda's expertise and dedication made the entire process seamless. From the outset, she demonstrated a genuine commitment to ensuring every detail of our elopement was perfect. Belinda guided us through the selection of various vendors, including hair and makeup artists, photographers, and videographers, and the like. Her recommendations were spot-on, and it was evident that she had a keen understanding of our vision for the day. She meticulously assisted in planning our travel arrangements and crafted a detailed day-of itinerary that exceeded our expectations. One of the standout qualities of Belinda is her exceptional organizational skills. Every aspect of the planning process was handled with precision, and she communicated with clarity and enthusiasm. Her responsiveness to our questions, no matter how small, demonstrated her dedication to providing exceptional service. Despite not being physically present during our elopement, Belinda ensured that we were well-equipped with comprehensive guides. These guides proved to be invaluable, making our special day stress-free and allowing us to fully enjoy the moment. We are truly grateful for Belinda's expertise and support throughout our elopement journey. Her professionalism, attention to detail, and genuine enthusiasm made our destination wedding in Pioneertown, California an unforgettable experience. If you're seeking a dedicated and reliable elopement planner, we wholeheartedly recommend Belinda – she turned our dreams into a reality, and we couldn't be happier with the results.

Stephanie Wooding (Owner / Lead Planner) When it comes to planning your event, it’s really about how that person (or team) embraces and uses that job experience in a resourceful and creative way. I’m a practical, organized, creative, resourceful, and resilient, “jeans and t-shirt” type chick. Well, the San Diego part of me is anyway. The LA in me is a driven, problem-solving, A-type, “take no guff” lady boss, that gets the job done on time, and within a realistic budget.

Awarded Best of Zola
As the bride, I tried to take on the wedding planning myself and realized three months out that it was too much for me to take on alone. We interviewed with a couple of coordinators and it just clicked with Stephanie. The first thing I noticed about her was how organized she was and how well she remembers all the details! Stephanie was also a great communicator and helped to contact all vendors and keep everyone on the same page. With her many years of experience in events she was able to offer very valuable input where needed but was never pushy and helped me to create the vision that I wanted. Her professionalism and her ability to stay on top of things allowed me to really enjoy the weeks and days leading up to my wedding stress free. On our wedding day she took care of everything and the day flowed so smoothly and beautifully! I would rate her higher than 5 stars if it was possible. Thanks so much Stephanie you were a charm to work with!

I have worked in event planning for a few years now. For weddings in particular, I have always worked on the vendor management side of things. When my vendors constantly asked why I wasn't a coordinator myself, I realized that I hadn't even considered it.

I hired B two months before our wedding to help not only narrow down logistics but also be the Day Of Coordinator. In my experience, If you’re very picky, hands on, and hate delegating, full service might be more than you need. I was glad that she was okay with being hired only two months before and that she just dove right in. She noticed hiccups that I hadn’t thought about and gave me a list of so many questions to avoid issues on the ay of. I am so grateful that I was able to find someone so inexpensive who’s just doing this because they love love. Who does that these days? My family was definitely ranting and raving about her because she took the time to get to know people’s names and called them by their names. She made sure that not only we were good but that our parents and grandparents were good as well. She helped us save some money on venue related things and certain vendors. Honestly, I would have paid her WAY more for everything she did. I tipped very generously because in those last few months before a wedding Is truly where the larger stressors start to take a toll. I know that people may be hesitant to book before of the price point but I guess I thought of it as, because I am paying nothing that I have nothing to lose. She is a diamond in the rough—I’m telling you. I’m literally in tears as I type this because my day was so tricking amazing!!! THANK YOU!!!!

Michelle is the ABSOLUTE best. I truly feel like I’ve found a friend for life. That’s the type of person Michelle is. She truly cares and wants the best for the bride and groom, is supportive, patient, kind, and never fails to give encouragement. When it comes to her professionalism, she is very experienced and knowledgeable in event planning, meticulous, honest, organized, and you can see the passion she has for her work. Her work really does speak for itself. She takes the time to get to know you and your vision for the wedding. She’s in constant communication with not only you, but with your vendors so that nothing is missed. She even adds certain details that she thinks will fit into your vision. I stress VERY easily about everything. Days leading up to the wedding were chaotic and a complete mess (last minute cancellations, misunderstandings with the venue, the weather, etc.), and as much as I trusted Michelle, I didn’t trust that I wouldn’t be stressed the day of. But Michelle really goes above and beyond to ensure that the bride is stress-free, won’t lift a finger on the day of the wedding, and that the day will be everything you hoped it would be and more. And it was. To my surprise, I wasn’t stressed at all. That’s the kind of magic Michelle has. She even surprised me with the manyyyy pictures she took and sent the day after. They were so carefully and thoughtfully taken. They were beautiful! I was really hesitant about getting a wedding coordinator because I was a nonprofit event coordinator/manager, so I was ready to be my own wedding coordinator. Granted you cannot compare fundraisers to weddings, but I was ready for this. My husband and I ultimately decided that it was impossible for me to do everything on our special day, so we went with Michelle. I wouldn’t have made it through my wedding without her. I don’t have the words to express the gratitude I feel that she was the person who took care of everything. You won’t regret having Michelle by your side on your wedding day.

Faye Fern Creative is a luxury Design + Planning house based in LA and NYC. We are experience curators who specialize in high touch, understated and effortlessly distinctive weddings. With more than 40 years of collective industry experience between us, we have earned a reputation for architecting extraordinary events built upon a foundation of bespoke service. We focus on quality over quantity, taking on only a select number of mutually aligned clients each year. This allows us to protect our creative integrity, and deliver the caliber of design and production our couples truly deserve.

To say that Faye Fern Creative exceeded all our wildest dreams is to put it lightly. Our wedding was a work of art thanks to Natalie Faye Fern, who is not only a creative mastermind but also an extraordinary person: intelligent, resourceful, kind, and a joy to be around. She works harder than anyone and goes above and beyond to make your vision come alive. Yet on our wedding weekend, she and her whole team made everything look totally effortless!! They were the picture of calm and brought the most warm and positive energy that our guests just fed off. Everything was so, so well coordinated and we felt we could just trust the Faye Fern team to do their job. They also gave us invaluable advice before the wedding which we followed and it helped to keep us very organized on our end. The decor took our breath away. We aren't design experts and just had a general idea of what we liked. Also owing to our busy schedules which left us little time to participate in the design process, we let Natalie run freely with the concepts she came up with and would tell any other couple to do the same! You won't regret it! I might be something of a designer's nightmare: a bride who doesn't always know what she wants and doesn't have time to plan anything but has high standards about whatever it is. I secretly feared that my wedding would never live up to what I hoped but when we stepped into our ceremony and reception, our jaws were on the floor the whole time. We could not believe this was our wedding because ohhhh my godd. It's like Natalie knew exactly what we wanted without us even knowing it ourselves. The fact that she designed and planned this for us while based in a different city the whole time makes it all the more impressive to me. Last of all, I want to add how grateful I am that Natalie always made sure that both my husband and I felt equally included in decisions. Many vendors treat the bride as if she is the only one whose opinion matters and while maybe this is traditional in the industry, I could tell that he felt left out sometimes. So I want to thank Natalie for always treating it like it was OUR wedding and not just mine because it meant a lot to my husband.

She constantly checked in with us, and reminded me of things that needed to be done each week and sent over options like the hair stylists in my area, and catering. Love it!
