When I initially spoke with Monique, she immediately demonstrated her know how and provided guidance to me, despite the fact that it was just a consultation. I could tell that she was a businesswoman, yes, but more so that she was incredibly passionate about what she does, and takes great pride in making every bride feel like her number one priority. The remaining eight months since I booked Monique until my wedding day, that is exactly how I felt. Her “month of” package is really a misnomer—she worked steadily with me for three quarters of a year to make sure that every decision was made in a timely fashion, to my satisfaction, with precision. Even when we had a lull in decision making deadlines, she checked in to keep me on track, and updated me religiously with helpful checklists and spreadsheets so I felt in control of the process. When I had to choose vendors like chair rentals, florals, or bands, Monique didn’t just “phone it in” and send me to her #1 contact. Instead she researched various options based on my budget and tastes, and provided me with comprehensive bids from companies. I never lifted a finger (or the phone), because Monique had everything handled and then handed to me for my simple approval! For instance, when I discovered that the ‘preferred florists’ on my hotel site’s vendor list were double my flower budget, Monique hooked me up with an amazing florist and secured me a personal discount so that I could get the flowers of my dreams for half of what comparable companies were quoting! Monique is extremely organized and professional. You can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that ‘she’s on top of it’. In addition, she’s incredibly kind and generous. She goes above and beyond, which is a sign of hard work, but she also anticipates your needs, which is a sign of talent. There aren’t enough words to express how happy I am with Monique’s service—I truly LUCKED OUT in finding someone that made my wedding preparations, and day, easy and fun!

When I was getting married, I was told a million times by so many people that some part of my wedding was guaranteed to go wrong, so not to worry. However, thanks to Monique at A Signature Wedding, I can say with confidence that not a single thing went wrong. My wedding was exactly how I had envisioned it my whole life. On top of that, Monique worked with me to plan my wedding while I was half way across the country from my venue. She truly is a professional, and I would more than highly recommend A Signature Wedding. There is not a single thing that I would have changed about my wedding, and I can 100% thank Monique for that!!

My oldest daughter got married in 2010 and we really didn't know how much help a wedding planner would be but a friend recommended Monique and we used her as a day of planner. She was such a help and so easy to work with that when my second daughter decided to get married Monique was the very first person i called!!

The decision to use Monique from start to finish was the best decision I have ever made.She has great vendors,great personal taste,great advice and just a wealth of knowledge about wedding planning. She even did this wedding with my daughter living out of state and only able to come home three times during the planning. She would meet at my house and face time with my daughter and her fiancé. She was able to capture the exact type of wedding that my daughter was dreaming of! She also kept me in a budget without sacrificing taste or style.My daughter and I always felt confident to ask her opinion when we couldn't decide on things!
I could go on and on about her and how stress free this wedding was with her at the helm.I have never used another wedding planner but I have friends with horror stories and people are still talking about how beautiful both weddings were and I never had one stressful situation! And I was also able to just relax and enjoy each wedding the day of as she just takes control and keeps everything going.She thinks of everything!!!!

We are so lucky that we found Monique Atwell and that she helped us with our wedding. We hired her for month-of services, but Monique was on the case from the day that we signed the contract almost nine months before the wedding. She was extremely responsive and available. She always was willing to answer any questions that we had and point us in the right direction. On the day of the wedding she and her staff were at our venue from 1 o'clock in the afternoon until 2 o'clock the next morning! She went above and beyond to take care of us every step of the way. She always made us feel that we were her only client. All of our vendors commented on how organized and on top of all the details that she was. We hired Monique because we did not want to have to worry on our wedding day. She delivered and made our wedding day a wonderful day for us!

I sought out A Signature Wedding four months before our big day. I had secured our venue, caterer, and my dress, and nothing else. Dreading the work that needed to be done in such a short time, being a bit of a procrastinator and very indecisive, I need someone to take the lead and make things happen— and Monique Atwell was just that. She’s honest, extremely responsive, and really fun! Throughout the entire process, she was always one step ahead that I never had to wonder what to do next. Her expertise and creativity showed in every detail; for every question I had, she gave me at least 2 or 3 different options on how things could be done, and helped with absolutely everything, from proofreading my invitations and programs, reviewing my vendor contracts, and continually coming up with new ideas to stretch my dollar. She captured my vision perfectly and I didn’t stress for a second. On the big day, her assistant Shannon was right by my side. She truly made me feel like a star, from offering me water through a straw so as not to smudge my make-up, to making sure I had lip gloss handy before taking pictures, to preparing the groom and me an appetizer plate as I was talking to our guests—small gestures that I would never have thought to ask for, and just a small sample of the quality and professionalism that A Signature Wedding stands by.

My husband and I just got married this past weekend and I can't even begin to express my gratitude to Monique and all that she did to make it such a special and memorably wedding. From day one Monique was incredibly organized, always accessible, there to answer any questions I had, and most importantly, made sure that we were on track and where we needed to be every step of the way. We had our wedding at Terranea and another benefit of working with Monique was that she has done tons of weddings there before so she was familiar with the site and and knew how to work with Terranea's management very effectively. Monique also got us in touch with several vendors who were absolutely amazing, including the stationary company we worked with, the band, the shuttle service, etc. I would recommend Monique's services to anyone and everyone who is planning a wedding... she is the BEST!

Best decision hands down was to hire Monique of A Signature Wedding. She was the sole reason my wedding was absolute perfection. From the first moment I met Monique, she was organized, patient and always available (by phone, email and in person). Her vast experience and advice was invaluable to me.

I was working and living in Denver while trying to plan my wedding in Southern California. The way she executed each detail and kept in touch made me feel connected and comfortable the whole process through. Her professionalism and know-how of all the ins and outs of wedding planning were truely amazing. I couldnt have asked for a better wedding coordinator and friend. I am forever indebted to her for making my dreams a reality.

I would recommend her services to anyone looking for a planner and will continue to recommend her for a very long time! She is a true testament to her profession.

Our daughter's wedding - ceremony and reception - was held in our garden. So it was especially comnforting to me to know from the start that someone would be orchestrating the event. But Monique isn't just someone - she's a fairy godmother with a lovely smile, calm manner, great organizational skills, and a magic wand that makes everything turn out gorgeously!

Her vendors were absolutley top flight (when one's talking about Monique, one wants to use superlatives all the time). The florist's flower and event design turned our garden into A Midsummer Night's Dream; the lighting guys gave us perfect lighting that was warm and subtle and magical; her hairdresser created stunning (but soft) hairdo's for all the wedding party, not just the bride. As our event was in Ojai, Monique had to find new vendors in our area for rentals etc. and the feedback we got from them was that she was great to work with.

She provided a well-thought out time line for the ceremony and reception; she kept us on schedule throughout the night; and most importantly, she handled all the small issues that arose during the evening so that we all could just enjoy the festiviites without having to run off and deal with some drama.

There isn't a bride out there who does not need Monique and her staff to plan and co-ordinate her wedding! Having Monique on your team means you know - for sure - that nothing is going to be overlooked, that every vendor will deliver first class service on time, that your event will inspire gasps of wonderment and appreciation from your guests. And you will be fully present to enjoy the whole occasion without worrying about anything going wrong.
