I was just talking to a coworker who got married about a month ago, and as she was telling me about the event I realized she was highlighting all the things that went wrong and really not relishing the wins of the day. For example, her mom forgot to set up the dinner place cards, the bride had to help set up the centerpieces prior to the guests arriving for the dinner reception, and the rings BARELY made it to the ceremony but caused at 30 min delay.
I was trying to think of how to make her feel better with a "oh every wedding is made up of those moments, for example at my wedding..." but i really couldn't think of a single thing that distracted me from the family and man I was marrying.
The way that her energy and attention was really diverted away from the event of marrying this man she loved and focused on operations and how to manage her mom and mother in law etc etc, made me realize (again...2+ years on) how amazing our wedding was and it was all thanks to you!!
I owe Gita a HUGE thank you for recommending you to me, but also to you for making that day and the events leading up to it as painless as possible so that we could all (my parents included) only have warm and glowing memories of my & Yashar's wedding.

"September 29th was the most memorable day of our lives and you made Lauren's wedding day dream come true. I cannot even begin to tell you about all the rave reviews that are pouring in about the ceremony and reception...from the BEST party ever to the most beautiful ceremony they have ever been to. I know how hard everyone worked to make it all happen and I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart."

"Mandy and her team is on top of every single detail from day one. They thought of things that had never even crossed my mind, and worked with me to get every detail of my wedding perfect. I actually don't know what I would have done without Mandy...she made the whole process of planning SO much easier, and made the day-of my wedding flawless. It was so stress-free and on-time the whole day, she made sure everyone and everything was where it needed to be. She helped make my day above and beyond anything I could have anticipated or expected.
Mandy is a fabulous planner!" - Becca
"Mandy was coordinator for our 160 guest wedding. Being a former wedding planner myself, I knew I needed someone to run my wedding – making sure details were attended to, vendors were taken care of, and that our timeline stayed on track. She did all this and more. If there was any hiccup, we sure never knew about it! All of our guests had a fabulous time. In fact, I just got an email (nearly 4 years later) from a family friend asking how we did it because they are now planning their own wedding and said ours was the best they’d ever been to!
Mandy is professional, organized, analytical, and knowledgeable. In addition, she is unfailingly warm, enthusiastic and accessible – my emails were always answered immediately and I felt like she was always available to talk through a decision. She made Ben and me feel like our wedding was her number one priority throughout the entire planning process." - Jenny Voight
"Mandys team is fabulous! They were FANTASTIC. They are on top of every single detail from day one. They thought of things that had never even crossed my mind, and worked with me to get every detail perfect. When I had questions, I could email Mandy and her team and have a response within the hour...even complicated issues. They were the middleman between me and the vendors, and did all the heavy lifting that I didn't want to deal with. Great ideas for everything, especially design aspects. Of course, the flowers were superb, all my bridesmaids said they had the best bouquets they've ever seen. They made all my ideas come to life, and didn't miss a step along the way. I actually don't know what I would have done without them...Mandy made the whole process SO much easier, and made the day-of my wedding FLAWLESS. It was so stress-free and on-time the whole day, she made sure everyone and everything was where it needed to be. The wedding party thought she was great (as did my mom, aka my other wedding planner). If I could recommend only one vendor from my wedding, it would absolutely be Mandy and her helpers. They really made everything perfect by being so detail oriented, calm, bubbly and easy to work with. Mandys team always had huge smiles on their faces, and were willing to do whatever it takes to make your vision a reality. Her team is stellar, and I would recommend her to anyone debating hiring a wedding planner! DEFINITELY worth it...you'll save so much time and headache with someone has wonderful as them. They helped make my day above and beyond anything I could have anticipated or expected. She's just great." - Becca - Santa Clara
