Paula was an AMAZING planner. She's top notch, well respected and highly recommended in the industry. I felt an immediate connection with her the moment we met her - she was so kind, friendly, understanding and most of all, her communication style was superb. I'm a super anal, detail oriented type of person, with high expectations - and she knew how to work with my standards to ensure that the wedding exceeded my expectations. The wedding was superb, extremely beautiful and for many of our guests, the best wedding they've ever attended. One of the things I valued most about Paula, was that she actually read through all my lengthy emails, numerous comments/ideas sessions and not only listened, but provided honest feedback. that was extremely valuable as she provided a different perspective and made our wedding that much better. We worked hand in hand throughout the process and I couldn't have asked for a better wedding. I highly recommend Paula to everyone - you will have your wedding in excellent hands!!

Where do I start? Over the last year I have been blessed to have had the opportunity to work with you in creating the most wonderful wedding a bride could ever desire. Your attention to detail and uncompromising expertise made our "big" day a relaxing and truly incredible event to remember. The ceremony was amazing, and when we walked into the venue it took my breath away! All the planning, appointments, tastings, laughs and research you facilitated made the wedding better than anything I could dream of.

Our family and friends keep talking about how we "raised the bar" for a marriage celebration. We have you to thank for this!!!

If you ever need a recommendation you could give my number or Mom's to anyone! For that matter you could use the testament of almost 180 guests from our wedding!

Dustin and I want to again thank you for being the very best Wedding Consultant, Planner, Designer, Professional, Wonderful Person and True Friend a couple could ask for!

We love you,


Kelly and Dustin Densmore

Champagne Taste ,
Paula Laskelle is the best wedding coordinator , she is everything you would dream to have in a coordinator . She is so helpful; she will accommodate you in any way that she can. i.e. I live 4-5 hours away from her and she met me more than half way . She is such a nice person and genuinely has a kind heart. She's very organized and kept my bottom in check. She was always checking in with me, and sending reminders to do things. She knows a lot of vendors and every vendor we used said that she is the sweetest person and is so organized and had nothing but great things to say about her ( after they screamed with excitement , learning they get to work with her) . she definitely has a gift for event planning . She definitely sets you up for success and a beautiful wedding / event.
The day before my wedding and the day of, she was so calm. She in turn made me and my family calm. She is my fairy god mother and I'm happy to share her with the world :). I grew an attachment to her and hold a special place in my heart for her forever :)

To sum up that novel I basically wrote, what I'm trying to get at here is... If you don't use Paula Laskelle with Champagne Taste then your wedding /event won't be the best. Everyone wants their guests to leave saying "wow" and walking in with their jaws on the floor. So look no further and pick Champagne Taste ;)
Sincerely
Danielle Stevens

Paula and her team made my wedding day seamless!!! It was so organized and went flawlessly!! Without this wedding planner I would've been completely lost!! Paula knows every detail about weddings and provides beyond excellent service for every bride. She made me feel like I was her only Bride and spent so much time with me to ensure my big day would be absolutely perfect(and it was)!! She brought details to my attention I didn't even think of and was gracious to all of the family members and anyone who we involved in the wedding planning process. She has so many contacts and several amazing recommendations which we ended up using to complete our day. We used several of her contacts as our vendors and they loved working with her and it showed in every meeting we went to!!! Everyone loves her, and now so do I!!! I would recommend her to ANYONE getting married!!!

Paula of Champagne Taste is amazing!! She and her team made our wedding day absolutely perfect! Paula is a joy to work with and without her we could not have planned such a flawless wedding. From the start, Paula took the time to answer all of our questions and was always an email or phone call away. She provided a wedding binder with everything I needed for planning which was extremely helpful in keeping everything organized. Her organizational skills are top notch and her knowledge of the wedding industry and vendors in the Orange County area was extremely helpful. We worked with Paula from out of state and she was extremely flexible in meeting with us whenever we were in town, which made long distance planning a lot easier for us. On the day of our wedding she made sure every detail was taken care of and that I did not stress about the small stuff. My husband and I really enjoyed working with Paula. She is definitely one of the best in the business! I would highly recommend using Champagne Taste for your special day!

Where to begin.......Paula is an absolute professional and a true joy to work with. Her knowledge and contacts in her field made everything easier. From the very beginning, Paula made us feel important and taken care of. If we ever had a question she was an email or phone call away. On the day of our wedding Paula ensured that the day went off without a hitch. There is nothing negative that can be said about Paula and Champagne Taste. I would recommend her and her company to anyone looking for a wedding coordinator. Paula is worth every penny and then some.

Paula with Champagne Taste was absolutely fantastic! My mom is great with party planning but we decided to get a wedding planner because we needed help with vendors. Honestly, I don't know how we would have done anything without Paula. Any email I sent she responded immediately with an answer, and if she didn't have one she would email me back to let me know she was finding one. Every vendor she recommended was amazing and they all loved Paula and told me I was in good hands. She knew EVERYTHING and made our wedding perfect. I can honestly say that we didn't have ANY issues or problems day of. I tell everyone how wonderful she was and that they should use her. I highly recommend Paula and think she would be a great addition to your wedding. Sign of a good planner- after the wedding my dad asked if she was even there that night- he never saw her! She was there the entire day as well as until after the last guest left. She was incredible. Can't say enough good things about her!!

Paula was the most amazing wedding planner! I get stressed and I was nervous I would be extremely stressed during my wedding planning experience, but Paula has this amazing way about her that kept me calm and just left room for happiness and excitement on my wedding day and the wedding planning process! From the very beginning she was extremely organized, professional, friendly, and on top of everything. My wedding planning from start to finish was amazing and fun, and I owe that to Paula. On my wedding day I had the most amazing and wonderful day of my life, and I didn't have to stress about the small stuff because I knew Paula could handle anything! I would recommend Paula to anyone who needs a wedding planner!
PS- she provides you with an awesome wedding planning book with all your wedding details in it....I will keep this and hopefully pass it down to a daughter :)

Paula is the best! She is professional, has impeccable taste, really works with you and your vision, has an amazing ability to navigate the tricky waters with family and all the various opinions, She keeps her cool, she is INCREDIBLE on the day of your wedding.

I recommend her as highly as I possibly can!

It was such a pleasure working with Paula! My husband and I were very pleased with her services, especially because we were working from across the country. She was always so friendly and professional and is great because she provides a very calming atmosphere to a stressful situation. She recommended awesome vendors she has great relationships with and worked within our budget. For future brides, I would make sure to think about how involved you want Paula to be as depending on the package (we had the Complete package) she can be as involved or not in the process. She is not the type of planner to be overbearing or push her ideas on you so if that is what you want, be clear about it. I wish she was a little more involved at some points, but I know I never made that clear and I also liked to be in control of everything that was going on. Our wedding day was perfect and executed great! Thank you Paula!

I unequivocally recommend Paula from Champagne Taste. Paula planned both my mom's wedding at an estate in Laguna Beach and recently my wedding at the Four Seasons Santa Barbara. Her professionalism and attention to detail is worth its weight in gold and I can literally say my wedding's outcome was widely attributed to her services. She was with me every step of the process and I told her after my wedding that because of Champagne Taste my wedding day unfolded like the perfect gift. All of my guests could not stop raving about what a wonderful evening they had and how they felt like they were so well taken care of, without Paula I can honestly say that would not have been the case. I can not say enough great things about Champagne Taste!

I have had the pleasure of working with Paula three times! No I haven't been married three times. Paula planned my wedding, I gave Paula's services as a gift to a dear friend and most recently she planned my daughter's wedding. For all three events she handled every detail with such professionalism that I never had a moment's worry. She is the calm in a storm and truly nothing seems to ruffle her.

You can tell how well respected Paula is when you see how other vendors react and work with her. When you select Paula you not only get a beautiful wedding but you enjoy the entire process. I have one more daughter and there is no doubt I will turn to Paula's expertise again.

Paula Laskelle is wonderful! She has a relaxed, easy, manner that made it enjoyable to work with her. Even though we were working on a very short timeframe, she planned everything perfectly. She set up all the appointments and assisted us in selecting an excellent group of vendors (florist, photographer, musicians, wedding cake, ice sculpture, lighting, etc.) I thought I was a perfectionist, but she beats me (in a good way)!

I got married on August 6th, 2011 and hired Champagne Taste for my wedding planning. My wedding was in Laguna Niguel, California at Ritz Carlton. I live in Chicago, so I needed to hire a planner. I love Paula Laskelle from Champagne Taste!!! She is best wedding planner and I never stressed one minute during my wedding day. She is fabulous, professional and has the best recommendations for vendors. Every vendor I picked was because of he. She did a FANTASTIC job and I was a very HAPPY bride. I knew when I first called her in Dec, 2010 that she was going to be my wedding planner. Her attention to detail was top notch. I had the most beautiful wedding and I thank Paula for the planning she did for me!! 5 stars all the way. I made a great decision!!!

There is not enough praise that I can give Paula. Having her was not only a gift to the whole family, but it was by far the best part of the entire wedding. We are not from California so we came in knowing nothing about vendors in the area. She recommended people who not only did their jobs unbelievably well, but who got along with our families famously. She made perfect matches. Additionally, and most importantly, Paula allowed us to be STRESS FREE through the entire planning process, which is not an easy task. She responded within minutes any time we had a question and took care of absolutely anything that needed to get done. As my mother has said over and over, she was absolutely perfect in every single aspect of her job. Of all of the decisions we had to make about the wedding, enlisting Paula was by far the best one.

Paula was so wonderful the entire year and a half we worked together. She made the process of planning so much fun. Her contacts with amazing vendors is outstanding. Paula is very calm and extremely organized. I tend to get anxious and her being so calm helped me to stay calm. If there were any bumps in the road along the way or even on the wedding day itself, I didn't know anything about them. She is outstanding at what she does. She isn't just my wedding planner, she's a very special part of my life now and a part of the family.

Every time I met with a vendor, they each made it a point to tell me that I made the best decision to have Paula be a part of our team...everyone in the industry LOVES working with her! With her professionalism, quality advice, and outstanding organization, it's no wonder that when I mention "Paula Laskelle" to my vendors, they all had the same reaction, "Oh thank goodness!" From a business point of view, I realized the importance of having someone to work with who gets a long so well with all the major vendors; the vendors having someone familiar, as well as someone who truly knows how to handle each part of the day. It makes it that much more of a pleasure to do the work, knowing that everything is in good hands. Everyone on the team is positive, because of her leadership and control. Thank you again so much for EVERYTHING!

We absolutely loved Paula! We received a list of planners from all the hotels we looked at and Paula was on every one of the lists. We met with a few planners, but once we met with Paula, we knew she was the one for us! She is so calm and organized. After your first meeting with her, she creates this binder that has everything you could possibly imagine. Every vendor that we met with, knew Paula and had nothing but wonderful things to say. Paula certainly exceeded our expectations and our wedding ran so smoothly. We were so thankful we had her!! She went way out of her way to make sure that we didn't get stressed out about a thing!

Paula's fabulous sense of style helped me create a dream come true wedding. At our first meeting, we discussed some ideas and she immediately "got me". Her ability to provide guidance, insight and professionalism through the myriad of resources expedited the process of planning an elaborate wedding. This was particularly helpful when we moved two weeks before the wedding with only 10 days notice from Newport Beach to San Francisco. Her amazing follow-through and ability to communicate was invaluable; she was always available. Paula's advice, support, encouragement, and calm demeanor are the foundation for a perfect wedding. We had so much fun on our special day, it was truly perfect; my guests are still saying it was the absolute best, most fun wedding they've ever attended! (me, too!) Thank you, Paula!
