I used Viv at honeycrisp design studio for all of my paper goods. She was so great to work with and made the entire process really fun and easy. We collaborated every step of the way and she really made my vision come to life. Viv responded quickly and was there to give advise and answer questions from everything to wording to etiquette. I would highly recommend Viv!!

Best wedding planner ever! seriously. We don't know what we would have done without. Viv always goes ABOVE and BEYOND to deliver nothing but the best. She has the best recommendations for everything. Our wedding went absolutely perfect and it was all thanks to her.

We went for the extended package which included Viv helping us out from the very start and even used her awesome design studio for our paper accessories and invites. Couldn't be happier!

We'll definitely stay in touch with her and user her design studio for other paper accessories for future events too. :D Thanks again Viv! We can't express how grateful we are for everything. Wouldn't have been able to do it without you!

My review was so long that EventWire could not accept my review (had to delete 3/4 of my review)
If you want to read the entire review, go to Yelp: 221 By Viv.


Where do I start?!
If you are looking for a wedding coordinator, Viv is the one to go to!
No need to research any longer!
I was SO picky with finding my wedding coordinator. I guarantee you that Viv will be the perfect wedding coordinator for you!

I took my fiance (now husband) to every single appointments to meet our potential wedding coordinator. Because we both knew that we wouldn't have much time for wedding planning, we had to have a great wedding coordinator.

We hired Viv as a day-of coordinator with wedding designing (addition to the basic package). Honestly, I felt like it was FAR MORE THAN just a day-of coordinator. We gave her the contact info of our vendors (photographer, photo booth, DJ, MC, venue, caterer, event rentals, etc). She took care of everything (contacting them, making sure everything was prepared and ready for the wedding)! All we did was bring an envelope to pay them on the day of the wedding. Even that, we gave all the envelopes to Viv and she handed them out to them.

I can go on and on about how amazing Viv is but it will be so long... You'll probably stop reading.

JUST CALL VIV AT (949) 322-3818!

I found Viv on Yelp and was hesitant about hiring a planner without any references other than the reviews found here.

Viv blew me away.

Our wedding on Jan 18, 2014 was FLAWLESS. All of our guests kept telling us how smoothly things went, and our vendors couldn't stop complimenting Viv's professionalism and positive attitude! We hired her as a day-of coordinator but she went so above and beyond. She was extremely accessible and made sure I was getting things checked off my to-do list on time, paying attention to the smallest details and catching big mistakes I had made earlier on in the planning process (I booked my hair & makeup lady for the wrong date and overlooked it on my contract! eek!). She is seriously amazing.

Looking back at our wedding now I realize how Viv worked so hard to make sure the small hiccups and challenges were dealt with without me knowing (she makes it seem so easy!)... for example, our escort cards wouldn't stand up in the wind, and somehow they ended up being secured by ribbons (that amazingly matched our wedding colors!) to the table... our guest shuttle was having some issues transporting the right number of guests over to the venue on time... and half of our vendors were Korean-speaking... but Viv worked with them all to make sure the details didn't tie me down on the day-of, and handle it like a pro. I wish I can have a Viv with me all the time, haha.

Through it all, Viv remained calm, steady, encouraging, and incredibly sweet. I am so so SO glad I met her through this yelp site - our wedding would not have been the same without her.

We love you, Viv!!!!

Viv was my coordinator for the most important day in my life. I started interviewing wedding coordinators in California as I had moved to Las Vegas but was getting married in beautiful California . Viv exuded professionalism from Day 1 . I was a nontraditional bride and appreciated that Viv took me seriously even though I didn't follow the usual guidelines of a future bride. When I interviewed Viv I had already booked my venue , was looking for the perfect dress, but I was not engaged. As Viv has said my husband and I were the first couple to have hired her before even getting engaged. Viv was able to make my wedding day seem like a dream. My wedding went smoothly even though I was extremely sick with the flu and did not see the light of day until my wedding day. All the last minute details she took care of. I am so happy and can not stress how grateful we are to have had Viv as our wedding coordinator . Can't wait for our vow renewals with Viv !!

Hiring Viv was by far the best money that we spent on our 11/23/13 wedding! During the planning process, Viv was incredible. She was SO responsive with any of our questions and she was great at helping us choose vendors. Her recommendations were spot on for our budget and our style - and it was great to have only 2-3 of each vendor to choose from. On the Big Day, Viv literally took care of EVERYTHING. I didn't have to worry and I was just able to enjoy the day with my husband and our friends and family. Everything was set up perfectly and Viv had every detail that we had discussed executed to a T. You will not regret hiring her - she gave us such a beautiful wedding!

Viv was our wedding coordinator for our wedding on Aug 3 2013.

Before meeting Viv we checked out a few other coordinators and soon found out that personality was a key issue when choosing a coordinator. There were some that were not on the same page and some that were left field. Viv with her sparkling personality knew her role and how we can most benefit from her experiences. Her experience helped shaped and correct some of the mistakes that might have happened if we havent gone with her.

Never felt like we were on the clock with her. She always was very helpful and stayed until the job was done. From coffee breaks to endless amounts of text/emails she was very supportive and caring throughout the whole process.

Like all weddings for our big day there were some fires and last min decisions that needed to be made. Viv was able to put them out with a breeze. Our idea was that we wanted to just "attend" our wedding and not delegate any problems. Viv made sure we were at the right places at the right times. She handed the job with class and pose.

The wedding wouldnt have been as successful as it was without her help. Viv is a true gem in the industry.

Viv was an angel who helped make my fairytale wedding come true on August 2nd, 2013. My husband and I had some bad luck when we first started planning our wedding and he was actually quite jaded before we met Viv. Once we started working with her, she really turned his attitude around!

Initially I thought I could do the whole wedding planning thing myself, but I am so glad I had Viv there to walk me through all of the details I would have missed! She was so easily accessible via email and text/phone and always willing to meet up at her office or anywhere convenient for me.

Viv was able to keep my stress levels down throughout the entire year of planning and was at every important meeting we had to ensure that everything would go smoothly on the BIG DAY! And that it did, I don't have one negative thing to say from my wedding day and I don't know many brides that can say that! Not a single flaw on my special day, not even a favor was out of place!

I feel very lucky to have found Viv, thanks to the Montage, and I highly recommend her to any brides out there that want a flawless, beautiful wedding!

Viv was my wedding coordinator for my July 20, 2013 wedding at Newport Dunes and there is no way we could have pulled off such a beautiful perfect day without her! She is so detail oriented and has amazing style. Her decorating is on point! Organization and party planning is not my strong point, but Viv made sure I stayed on task. She gave me "to-do" lists and helped me complete anything I had trouble with. If I had any questions (and I had a lot) she was always just a text message or phone call away. She kept in touch with all of our vendors to make sure that they knew what we wanted and everything ran smoothly on the big day. She attended meetings with my florist (Tina Bushling) to make sure that Tina's decor and her decor meshed seamlessly. She let me use some of her own personal decorations (signs, banners, cake stands) and knew the most cost effective places for me to get anything else she couldn't make or didn't have. Viv made my Pinterest wedding come to life! I am normally a stress case....but I was able to put my mind at ease knowing that Viv was in charge!

This is my first review on Yelp, but I felt like a needed to publicly give Viv all the credit she deserves for coordinating my wedding at Serra Plaza. After a year and a half of engagement and planning, I was so stressed and brain dead that I was SO grateful to just hand over the reins to Viv and not think about any details. The last thing I wanted to think about was where to set up lounge furniture or collect certificates of insurance from vendors. Viv is amazingly talented and hardworking, and I knew from the beginning that I could rely on her. Viv met with me so many times leading up to the wedding and gave me checklists of things to take care of so that i wasnt overly stressed at the end. She also gave me invaluable advice and was a great sounding board and was always supportive and positive. Thanks to Viv, I was able to relax and have fun on my wedding day instead of worrying about a billion little things going wrong (in retrospect, a LOT of things went wrong that day, but Viv took care of it and I didn't even find out about some of it until later :)). Several of my family members and guests commented after the wedding on what a great job she did too!! The best piece of advice I can give is to find a good wedding planner who you get along with and you trust. Its worth it to spend the money for the same of your sanity.
