In the beginning, my wife and I didn't have much of an idea where to start for the wedding planning. Echo was super helpful the whole way through. She had timelines, vendor options she'd worked with in the past, and advice about questions we came up with. Overall, working with Echo (who's super organized!) made the whole thing much less stressful that it would have been. We both work day jobs, so having someone who has experience here was absolutely worthwhile. If you choose to work with vendors that she works with often, she will pass on her discounts to you.

On the day of, Echo was indispensable. A lot goes on and she was on top of it, working behind the scenes to keep everything on track and making sure everyone knows where to be.

We were very pleased to work with Echo and would definitely recommend her to others.

Echo helped plan a destination wedding for our daughter. Planning a wedding halfway around the country was a difficult thing and required a lot of trust in our planner. Echo listened to us and gave us the beautiful wedding and reception that we envisioned. From catering, flowers, music, venue etc.. her recommendations proved to be a great choice. Thank you Echo for giving our daughter and us an unforgettable Wedding Experience.

When my now wife said she wanted to hire a wedding planner I thought she was crazy. I learned I was crazy for thinking that on my own behalf. The BEST DECISION EVER! Echo is a dream herself. She doesn't skip a beat and still over three weeks after our wedding, people are still sending cards and commenting on how amazing the wedding was. Most people are saying it was the best and most organized wedding they had ever been to. For us it was an absolute perfect day and it was truly a day where we could celebrate our love with no niches. Echo is truly an amazing person and we are lucky to now have her as a friend.

Echo was amazing and I don't know what we would have done without her! She made organizing our destination wedding so smooth. She was pleasant to work with and paid attention to every detail. She first helped us to choose a venue and quickly understood our style and key things we were looking for. She knew our style better than we did and took us on extra visit to Chateau St. Jean, which we knew was perfect the minute we stepped on the property. Throughout the wedding planning process, Echo was incredibly organized and helped us set and meet timelines on all the wedding variables (and she was patient with us on some of our slow and fickle decision making). She made the whole process fun and easy. All the vendors that Echo recommended were all fantastic as well. Given more time or money, I wouldn't have changed a thing about the wedding. It was exactly our style and exactly what we wanted. The wedding day was so perfect and if there were any kinks, we had no idea. Echo also surprised us with a cool light installation over the bar, which was so cool! The transitions throughout the wedding day and all the details were immaculate. I can't say enough great things about working with A Dream Wedding!! It was worth every penny!

Let me just say that Echo and her team were absolutely amazing! We could not have imagined a more beautiful or more perfect wedding. Everything, I mean EVERYTHING was absolutely perfect. Echo's attention to detail and love for her work is truly remarkable. And our guests were absolutely blown away and they all remarked how wonderful she was! This being a destination wedding for us, we really depended on Echo's knowledge of the local area and what was obvious to us was how highly regarded she was by the vendors in the area. She really knows her stuff! I'm still amazed at how flawlessly everything was executed. Also the vendors she helped us select were all fabulous. The venue, the flowers, catering, DJ, photographer, cake... they were all amazing and we would never have found them on our own. Thank you Echo for making our dreams come true! - Stephanie & Dave

Echo was an amazing wedding planner. I am a Realtor and have a crazy schedule. She really worked with me in getting everything ready and understood my busy lifestyle and was still able to make everything work. She set timelines for me and still gave me flexibility when I needed it. For our rehearsal, she had detailed timelines for everyone in our wedding party and really made us feel ready for the wedding. The day of our wedding, I didn't have to worry about a thing and she handled everything and is extremely organized. Our wedding was everything we wanted and more and she was there to executed everything. We highly recommend her!

I cannot say enough good things about A Dream Wedding! We initially hired Echo to help us find the perfect wedding venue in Napa or Sonoma, CA. Based on the criteria and budget we were looking for, she secured appointments with 9 wineries for us to visit over a two-day period. We had such a great experience during the venue search process that after deciding on a venue hired Echo on the spot to help us plan our wedding at Kunde Family Winery (day of plus package). Her breadth of knowledge of the area and network of reputable vendors made the wedding planning process enjoyable from day one. She handled all of the behind the scenes logistics and served as the liaison between us and our vendors, streamlining communications and making the planning process easy and efficient. Echo was extremely organized, detail oriented, patient with and quick to respond to my lengthy emails with 100’s of questions. We were confident that nothing would be overlooked and that she fully understood our wedding day vision. When the weather forecast for our all outdoor ceremony and reception was showing a 90% chance of rain the Tuesday before, Echo was a lifesaver! Within a day, she had re-worked all of our vendor agreements and put together the perfect Plan B that in the end was just as good, if not better than Plan A! The day of the wedding, Echo and her team executed the event flawlessly! I was fully relaxed and able to enjoy every moment, knowing Echo and her team had everything under control. We could not have had more fun celebrating with our friends and family! We received numerous compliments on how gorgeous and fun our wedding was. Our guests were still talking about it two weeks later when we returned from our honeymoon!

We cannot thank Echo enough for all of her hard work and dedication to making our day so special! She is a sweetheart to work with and we highly recommend her to anyone looking to get married in wine country! Cheers to Echo and A Dream Wedding!

She handled all of the behind the scenes logistics and served as the liaison between us and our vendors, streamlining communications and making the planning process easy and efficient. Echo was extremely organized, detail oriented, patient with and quick to respond to my lengthy emails with 100’s of questions. We were confident that nothing would be overlooked and that she fully understood our wedding day vision. When the weather forecast for our all outdoor ceremony and reception was showing a 90% chance of rain the Tuesday before, Echo was a lifesaver! Within a day, she had re-worked all of our vendor agreements and put together the perfect Plan B that in the end was just as good, if not better than Plan A! The day of the wedding, Echo and her team executed the event flawlessly! I was fully relaxed and able to enjoy every moment, knowing Echo and her team had everything under control. We could not have had more fun celebrating with our friends and family! We received numerous compliments on how gorgeous and fun our wedding was. Our guests were still talking about it two weeks later when we returned from our honeymoon!

We cannot thank Echo enough for all of her hard work and dedication to making our day so special! She is a sweetheart to work with and we highly recommend her to anyone looking to get married in wine country! Cheers to Echo and A Dream Wedding! Read less

Echo did an amazing job in helping us identify, down select, visit and ultimately select our wedding venue. Echo listened to our "care abouts" and curated a list of possible venues from which we could review and select our site visits. She coordinated 8 and eventually 9 site visits during just 2 days enabling us to make the most of our time and energy all the while providing thoughtful and seasoned advice. She seeks to provide the best value for your style and budget. If you are seeking to plan any event in the Napa/Sonoma wine country, Echo is, by far, the best resource to have by your side.

Update: Echo and her team are experts in their field. Before you do anything else, hire her! Echo's breadth of experience, network or reputable vendors and collaborative, thorough approach will help you realize an event that is magical and memorable. Our recent wedding was nothing short of a dream come true (cliche though that may sound). Echo assisted us immeasurably in every facet of our affair from venue selection, vendors, decor and "day of" coordination without which I don't believe I would have survived. She has poise, professionalism and a collaborative management style that is both rare and valued. It really was a process and a day that I will remember forever.
