My husband and I were coming to San Francisco for our destination wedding. We didn't know anything or anyone in the area. We found Rev Saundra on Thumbtack and since the start she had been nothing short of amazing. She not only did a beautiful job officiating our ceremony, but she was able to help us write our vows, give us advice about obtaining our marriage license and about finding the perfect location for our ceremony. She was enthusiastic and upbeat throughout the entire process. She is extremely organized, and kept us on track to make sure we had everything in place prior to the ceremony. On the day of the wedding, she came early and helped organize the guests into their proper places for the ceremony. Rev Saundra did a phenomenal job and we are so grateful she was the one who married us.

Michael was terrific to work with. He helped us out with logistics the day of our wedding and made himself available to perform any task that was required for things to run smoothly. I would definitely recommend him to have on hand to get things done!

Before I give my glowing review of Tiffany, I have to preface the review with a few words so you know that I was in your shoes. Wedding planning sucks and having to stick to a limited budget doesn't it make it easier. As a bride, sometimes you have to cut corners in order to afford simple things (or let's be honest more desired things) for your wedding. Hiring a full service wedding planner, was one of those things that I really wanted, but I knew it would take a huge chunk out of my wedding budget. My wedding was in San Francisco, so it’s not the cheapest city to have your wedding. But after receiving price quotes from full service wedding planners, their prices depressed me (adding unnecessary stress to my wedding budget woes) and when I looked at their packages, I just didn't feel like it was right for me or my budget. I had to take a step back, breathe, and take ownership of wedding planning and face reality. I knew what I’d need to do, to stay on budget. I had big decisions to make as a bride, but I knew I could save a ton, if I planned my own wedding. So I thought “hey I plan many events for my friends, family, and clients all the time, we’ve got about 85-100 guests to invite, why not plan my own wedding, and hire a day of coordinator to save money?" I did just that and when I was in the process of looking for a day of coordinator, my next thought was, "shoot if I hire a day of coordinator, will I overlook something and regret not hiring a full service wedding planner?". With caution, I started to ask for quotes for day of coordinators and realized right away what I needed to do. I put a request up on Thumbtack and the email quotes came rolling in. I was astonished. But I was in a conundrum - every price was competitive, so how does one choose a vendor over the other. All of them had amazing reviews (which put my initial concerns more at ease). I spent a few days emailing back different vendors, asking them questions, reading their reviews, even looking them up on Linkedin! I did some my research and eventually decided on Tiffany Won. Choosing her as the day of coordinator was one of the best decisions I made during the wedding planning process. 3 pieces of advice if you DIY: First off ladies, have more confidence in your planning abilities and use the resources the internet provides you (there are a ton of wedding checklists and schedules online to help you plan your own wedding, and for inspiration for décor or what not, pinterest was key for me). It might be intimating at first, and the time involved in planning your wedding might feel like an absolute time suck, but trust in yourself and plan your day. No one has a better vision of what you want for your wedding, more than you. Secondly, trust in a day of coordinator like Tiffany to execute on your vision. She's top notch and will be a valuable asset in your planning process. I hired her as my day of coordinator. I was a little anxious, but after I spoke with her on the phone and especially after I met her before my wedding for the 2 hour “pre-wedding meeting”, I could tell that she had plenty of experience in event planning and coordination. Not only does she have experience in wedding planning, but she has extensive experience planning corporate events and conferences, which as you know, could range from hundreds to thousands of attendees. My thought was, if this girl can plan corporate events that are large scale, she will definitely be able to coordinate my smaller scale event. She also asked the right questions before the wedding, which put my concerns at ease, since she is very sharp and it became clear to me, that event planning plays a very familiar story in her head, a story she knows word for word. Thirdly, stick to your budget. If you need to roll up them sleeves and plan your wedding, just do it. But call in some cavalry to take over on the day of your wedding day because you’ll need it. Make sure you go with a pro like Tiffany. I’m pretty detailed oriented. So is she. I thought I had every detail planned, all she has to do is follow the schedule. You know what, she was able to catch holes in my schedule and my planning. She worked with me to double check my wedding schedule and everything – the whole shebang…from pre-wedding day stuff like what time the florist will set up, when will the lighting company get to the venue, advice or a second opinion on wedding décor, suggestions for additional vendors….even ceremony logistics such as where people would stand, the flow of the event, gaps in the vendors schedules…and the wedding reception details like when the band would take their breaks so she can play an ipod or something so background music would play, helping with the mic transition from the emcee to other guest speakers, overseeing food service so there wasn't a huge gap between the appetizers and dinner, making sure I ate, making sure the groom and I did our table rounds to thank our guests for coming, making sure at the end of the evening someone could collect my wedding gifts, etc etc. Tiffany did a phenomenal job at overseeing every tiny detail the day of the wedding! My wedding went smoothly, the guests had a fantastic time, I now have memories that will last a lifetime, and this was all because I had help taking some wedding responsibilities off my shoulders, I'm so glad I hired Tiffany! Tiffany went over and beyond the call of duty and at a very fair price. Whether you hire her as a day of coordinator or hire her for full service wedding planning (or to plan any type of event), do yourself a favor and put her in your top consideration list. I would hire her again if I could. I will certainly be recommending her to my friends and family. And if you hire her, I’m sure you will eventually do the same. Kudos Tiffany for the excellent work! Written by a very happy bride :)

She was very laid back and I mean this in a good way. I like to be in control when planning my wedding or events and she made sure to listen and make sure all my visions and choices were taken care of! At our wedding I didn't feel stressed at all and having her took a lot of potential stress off my shoulders. She was extremely helpful and good at communicating with me. Thanks !

Anna Marie did an excellent job coordinating our wedding. She chatted with us several times before the big day, and helped us think through many of the details of the event. On our wedding day she arrived and immediately got down to business arranging flowers, setting things up, and running interference with other vendors. She handled everything flawlessly and made sure we were taken care of all night long. It was lovely knowing that if anything came up Anna Marie would handle it so we could just relax and have fun. I couldn't recommend her highly enough!

I mentioned this during the speech in my wedding: "I don't know what we would have done without Matt." He helped and guided us since the beginning, from finding a venue for 3 events (it was a destination wedding and we wanted 3 days of festivities, welcome drinks, wedding, and farewell drinks) to the end. Matt was very reliable, professional, and patient. He answered hundreds of emails/questions I had during the planning. Everything turned out to be the way we dreamed about. I loved the decor, flowers arrangements, and the suggestions he gave us when we didn't know what to chose. We are very happy with Forsyth Designs and we'd absolutely recommend him for your event!

Actually I didn't meet the LadyMarry coordinator and florist, until the rehearsal day, because I was planning my wedding remotely in New York. They are very responsive and patient to my endless questions, and did a great job about organizing the rehearsal and communicating with the other vendors. I always saw Melissa and Donna running around. Hiring you was the best decision I made for my wedding. Thank you!

Beth from Sassy Diva Designs & Events was wonderful to work with on our destination wedding in Half Moon Bay, CA! Working via Iowa and Arizona brought a unique set of challenges which Beth accomplished with extreme professionalism! Beth was inspired by our bouquet and boutonniere photos and tweaked the designs to fit the bride's vision! We also rented her yard games, but were not sure the weather would allow us to use them outside. Out of the goodness of her heart, Beth include extra game options that could be played inside. Fortunately, the sun was shining & the skies were blue! Beth and her crew delivered & picked up the flowers and games just as scheduled. We were extremely happy to have the opportunity to work with Beth and would highly recommend her services! The Smith & Sanchez Families

We were extremely happy with Taneva Events. We wanted a simple but elegant wedding in Hawaii and Velina at Taneva Events provided that and more for us. She worked with us on everything from the smallest detail on the dinner napkins to working with vendors on logistical details, setup on the day of the wedding and ensuring our day was perfect. We did not have a clear idea of what we wanted to do for our wedding besides the fact that we wanted to keep it simple and take advantage of the natural beauty of the setting. Velina was really helpful from the start, brainstorming ideas with us, and making suggestions for the decor that we would have never thought of on our won. We did not want traditional flower centerpieces, and Velina was able to accommodate us by creating beautiful pineapple centerpieces, and tied them all together with the runner, candles, handmade napkins, and pedestals that she placed the pineapples on. Everybody complemented the decor and the bridal bouquet that she created from traditional Hawaiian flowers. We could not have had such a beautiful and smooth day without Velina's help. Planning for a wedding is always stressful, but Velina eased a lot of our stress and was always a pleasure to work with.

Marianne was our florist for our wedding and EVERYTHING was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! We got so many compliments with all the services she provided for us. She brought my visions to life!! She's very sweet, professional and responds to any questions or concerns promptly. My mother and I are extremely detail oriented and she did everything she could to make sure my wedding was perfect and beautiful. Marianne listened to all my thoughts and ideas and was able to give feedback and follow with other amazing ideas. I had many headaches and stressful moments planning my wedding, but I never had to stress about my flowers because I trusted her with everything and knew she was going to make things wonderful. I can't thank her enough for all the hard work she did. I recommend Marianne for not only weddings but any occasion that you need a florist!

Heidi and Ashton were the perfect day-of wedding coordinators. When we arrived at the site on our wedding day, everything was beautifully set up as if by magic. Gracefully and unobtrusively, they made everything happen. They arranged flowers, set up the wedding altar, wrangled vendors, and guided guests through the day’s various phases (ceremony, reception, toasts). They even served us cake and champagne. Our guests remarked on how “effortless” the wedding seemed; this is largely due to Birminkeley’s hard work! Birminkeley also helped plan our wedding. They visited the venue with us and talked us through everything from where to seat the guests to how many tablecloths to order. Later, they helped us search for wedding vendors. Despite our tight timeline (~2 months), they found us a wonderful photographer, rental company, and makeup artist. They were persistent and tenacious in making sure the vendors would adhere to our venue’s strict requirements. In addition to being very capable, flexible, and affordable, Heidi and Ashton are very pleasant to work with. Their calmness and perseverance helped us get through a very stressful time!

Working with Krista for our wedding was such a fabulous and easy experience. She was available to answer questions and bounce ideas off with really quick response times. Having a destination wedding was a little bit of a challenge logistically, but Krista was great in making sure everything we needed was ready to go and nothing left behind! The flowers came out perfect - I loved being able to show her ideas of what we wanted and she nailed it! Our guests thought the centerpieces and bouquets were just beautiful! We were so happy with Krista's services! If we got married again, we would definitely use Krista just so we could have peace of mind knowing everything would be perfect.

Kendra planned 2 baby showers for me and a blessingway. Both were extremely memorable and special. She has an eye for detail and will capture the look you're going for and make it even better. She is reliable, and extremely organized. I had a hard time expressing a vision for what I wanted, but she has a way of connecting with you, getting to know your style and then making it come to life. I am so happy we had Kendra to plan these things for us! Oh and also, if you're kind of all over the place and scatter brained like me, Kendra is your girl! She is super calm nothing stresses her out.

"I had the pleasure of working with Charles in an effort to put together a beautiful, elegant ceremony for my brother's wedding. Although I am not a wedding planner myself, I was looking for someone who I could consult for ideas and suggestions since they didn't have the budget for a professional wedding coordinator. I reached out to a number of different coordinators and explained my situation, and Charles was one of the few that was open and willing to work with me and offer professional advice. As the wedding day approached, I consulted Charles for ideas and explained what exactly the bride and groom were looking for and the budget they had. With that in mind, Charles was able to offer a number of great ideas and suggestions for their special day that were within budget and helped create an amazing, memorable day for the bride, groom, and all their guests. Although we were unable to have Charles there the day of the event, I am positive that it could have only been better had we been able to have him there with his professional eye. I would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone who needs anything as simple as suggestions/professional advice or anything as big as a wedding planner to hand the reigns over to."

Alanah was amazing to work with for my wedding. Prior to the day of the wedding, she was very professional and responsive while helping me coordinate all the logistics and details of the wedding, as well as open to all of the ideas that my husband and I had. She was extremely organized and it helped me tremendously to keep on track with planning. The week before the wedding, she was the one reaching out to the vendors to get times of when they would be on campus and coordinating with them any loose ends. The day before the wedding, she met with me to do a walk through of the venue and the layouts. We were able to get in more in depth about the different ideas for decorations and set up. She was also present at the rehearsal with the church and was the one to get people in order. The day of the wedding was ridiculous and insane. The church’s coordinator was very difficult to work with and there were a few mishaps, but Alanah took care all of the difficult situations. It went extremely smooth because of her and she did everything to make perfect for my husband and I. I am extremely grateful that I found Alanah and I’m not sure how my wedding would have went if it was not for her.

This review is long overdue (wedding was 10.20.17), but I wanted to make sure I shared my experience with Exquisite Weddings & Events! I had decided to plan everything myself to save money (bad idea). About 6 weeks before the wedding I was so stressed out, up to my throat in "things to do." It dawned on me that the only way I could maintain a healthy level of sanity was if I hired a day of coordinator since I had done mostly everything else up to that point. I wasn't able to meet Jill in person until the wedding because I live in San Diego (wedding was in Yosemite). She was very friendly and professional for our consultation call - I immediately felt like I was comfortable working with her long distance and hired her the next day. Let me just say, Jill went above and beyond BEFORE the "day of" that I hired her for. Although I had done a lot (so I thought), there was still so much more to do... thank goodness Jill was there to help me! She tied up loose ends with a couple of the vendors that I had been having a hard time communicating with. She stayed on top of keeping in contact with all my vendors regarding any changes, confirming details, etc. She was even so kind as to loan me a few decorations that I couldn't figure out at the last minute. As soon as Jill got to the cabin on the wedding day, she immediately got to work setting up last minute decorations. I didn't see her again until the ceremony and she did a great job making sure everything ran smoothly. After the ceremony, she went straight to the reception and met all the vendors there to help get everything set up. When the wedding party arrived, it was clear everyone had been taken care of. Needless to say, the rest of the reception was a breeze! I would highly recommend Exquisite Weddings & Events. If I had to do it all over again, the only thing I would change would be to hire Jill as my full time coordinator rather than day of. For the price, it doesn't get any better! Thanks Jill!!

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
