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 :)

From start to finish, it was truly a pleasure to work with Alisa and her top notch team at Passionate Plates. We appreciated her flexibility and cooperation during the planning stages to prepare food for 60 guests at our wedding in Sonoma on Sept. 17, 2016. I am especially grateful for finding such a high quality caterer such as Alisa's Passionate Plates via the Thumbtack website after our caterer had to back out just two months before our wedding due to medical reasons. Foremost, we had nothing but rave reviews from our wedding guests for the high quality of the food, including choices for seafood lovers, steak, chicken, vegetarians and wonderful side dishes. On the big day, her team arrived at the wedding venue to prepare everything fresh and perfectly on schedule based on the timing of the service for a lunch reception. We opted for a more simple buffet style and this worked out extremely well for us. In addition, her team did a superb job with general execution in both the high quality of the food, clearing the tables and leaving the venue's kitchen and table settings sparkling. I have rated Passionate Plates "5 stars" but would give them higher, if possible! Rest assured, you will not regret working with Alisa and her first class team at Passionate Plate.

Rebecca was our day of wedding coordinator for our backyard wedding in June 2018 and she did a truly fantastic job. There were definitely some logistical challenges we were worried about including getting our guests to the venue from an offsite parking lot and coordinating the set up of various things after the wedding started due to heat ( including our dessert bar and wedding favors). Rebecca handled all of this spectacularly and made us feel at ease the whole time. When we under-planned for the amount of ice we needed for the day and ran out, Rebecca drove 10 minutes to the store to get more for us. I honestly really didn’t appreciate how much I needed a wedding coordinator until the day of the wedding. It just couldn’t have gone as smoothly without her and I would have been way more stressed. Only con ( and it didn’t feel like enough to deduct stars ) was I felt like this business was really aggressive about getting a review. I have gotten at least 10 requests between them and thumbtack (compared to our other small business vendors who asked once) in the 2.5 weeks since the wedding. I understand how important reviews are and always intended to write a glowing review of this company. Have truthfully had other priorities since the wedding finished and Just didn’t particularly appreciate the number of requests. That being said would not hesistate to hire them again. Rebecca was truly a gem and we are so grateful for her hard work and dedication on our wedding day.

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 !

I want to give these guys a million stars. They catered our wedding back in August and they were the best vendor team anyone could have ever asked for. They were SO fun to work with throughout the whole process and made everything so easy and stress free. I cannot imagine working with anyone else. Everyone was raving about the food and the best cupcakes and cake they had EVER had (honestly we weren't even going to have a cake at all until we tasted there's). Thank you Nick and the whole Famous Creations team for making our wedding the best day of our lives and making the wedding planning fun!!

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!

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!

When we met Khadija we were half way through the wedding planning, and we knew what we wanted in our party but we still needed plenty of guidance...Khadija and James provided that and then some! We found Limelight Productions to be all we could have hoped for and more. Not only is their team very organized and knowledgeable but they helped us to think of things we never would have otherwise considered and they truly went above and beyond. We never had one e-mail, text or call not promptly responded to and at the right times they even gave us some needed pushes on planning and execution as our big day drew nearer. The week of the wedding arrived and Khadija and James (and Ayesha for the bouquet production) showed why they deserve nothing less than 5 stars on their reviews. They were fantastic and very professional, and our party was amazing because they were an amazing team handling things for and with us. Our thank you very much to them, and best recommendations. There is no way we could have had our wedding without them!

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

I was the kind of bride that contemplated whether I needed a wedding planner or not and I can’t say enough how relieved I am to have hired Courtney! She exceeded our expectations during the planning stages by being responsive, offering suggestions, and just being there when we needed her. She was our month of coordinator but she assisted well in advance to make sure our timeline was perfect. I honestly don’t know what we would’ve done without her! The wedding went as smoothly as possible and we have Courtney to thank. She worked with all vendors, made sure we stayed with the timeline as much as possible, and even helped decorate our welcome table, guestbook table, and centerpieces as a part of her duties. Courtney, you were such a pleasure to work with!

Robyn made my bridal shower a total surprise! I was not expecting it at all. It was based on me, as the theme was what I love best, horses. I could tell she had spent so much time researching to find decorations and party favors that would make my bridal shower so special. She also helped plan my backyard wedding. I'm not a very good party planner myself so had no idea where to start. When I hired her, she stepped right in and took the control I was looking for. I could relax and have a great time at my wedding knowing every little detail was being watched and taken care of by Robin.

They say a wedding is only as good as the people who plan it. We absolutely LOVED working with Rubal at Events by Rubal!!!! We have the Rubal to thank for the most beautiful, seamless and perfect day in our lives! From the moment we hired Rubal, we felt not one ounce of stress or worry for our wedding day. Who knew wedding planning could be so fun? Rubal is the sweetest, most creative, talented and organized person and it genuinely shows through her amazing events. She was there every single step of the way from the concept and design of the wedding, helping us find amazing vendors, organizing and facilitating all vendor meetings, and providing us with professional guidance in a non-obtrusive and tasteful way. With my husband and I both working full time jobs, she made planning SO easy and stress free. Our wedding was absolutely stunning and flawlessly executed and it we owe it all to Rubal's dedication to ensure that we had and ENJOYED the wedding of our dreams. We received overwhelming compliments on not only the design details, but how smooth, elegant and effortless the wedding day was. It was the best decision we could have ever made to hire Rubal to plan our wedding and feel so lucky to have worked her. Rubal we love you! - A+M

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!!

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.

We hired Kendra as our day-of wedding coordinator. To give you some context, we are a couple that finds comfort in planning minute-by-minute timelines and we had a very specific vision for our ceremony/reception. After realizing we would need someone to entrust with our plans, we hired Kendra to execute our grand vision as well as the small details. It was a decision that we do not regret. She's such a joy to work with, offers thoughtful feedback, and has a can-do attitude. When we asked her if should wanted to visit our venue, she said yes. When we asked her to join us for rehearsal the day before, she said yes. And when we gave her so many day-of asks--often confusing and sometimes conflicting--she didn't hesitate to say yes. We are so grateful to get to know her (and her beautiful kids) and truly believe that any couple would be blessed to have her as a coordinator. So stop wasting your time and get in touch with her ;)

Christa handled everything I asked her to the day of my wedding. There were many complexities and moving parts because I had a reception and an after party. Christa handled both amazingly well.

I could not have imagined a better wedding day and it was in large part due to all the hard work Marissa put in. I had a few items figured out and thought I would be able to plan the entire wedding on my own, thank goodness Marissa was recommended by a friend! I was unsure on the "theme" direction I wanted to go and Marissa was able to quickly determine my actual wants and make them come to life. She had great suggestions on vendors and handled the details with all of them. She also did all of my flower arrangements, including the bouquets and boutonnieres, which were beautiful. My rehearsal and wedding day were absolutely perfect. I didn't once think about any detail or item I may had forgotten because Marissa had everything so put together and organized that I never felt the need to worry. I would refer her to any one of my family members or closest friends at any time! If stress free wedding planning is what you are looking for, Marissa is your lady!
