Grace and I hit it off from the moment that we had our first meeting. We talked for hours and it seemed as though we had known each other for a very long time. She quickly figured out what kind of wedding I was looking for based on our conversation and pictures that I showed her from my multiple Pinterest boards. She had also shown me pictures of weddings that she has planned and I was amazed at the quality of her work. She has great attention to detail, which I absolutely love!
Fast forward about ten months to the day of the wedding...our big day was finally here! Grace and her assistant (Robin- love her! Super sweet!) were at the hotel early to make sure all of the vendors were setting up on time and that both the bridal and groom's parties were on track. Once we finished taking all of our pictures it was time to take the walk down the aisle. With my dad by my side, we turned the corner to the ceremony site and I was speechless when I saw the venue. It was beautiful! It was everything that I imagined and more! Our ceremony and reception were both held in the same space so the vendors had to do a room flip during the cocktail hour. After we finished the pictures it was time for the grand entrance. And again, Grace did not disappoint us at all! We couldn't believe how stunning the room looked. From the flowers to the decor, we loved everything about it! She also came up with additional stationary details that I absolutely loved!

Thanks to Grace, the entire planning process was a seamless. All of the vendors that Grace recommended were extremely professional and not only that, you can tell that they all love working with her and respect her talent. I am truly impressed with the level of attention that Grace gives her clients and time that she dedicates to ensure they have a stress-free wedding planning process. Not only that, she has great ideas and most importantly, great execution. I am already thinking about other events that I can plan with Grace.

This is the first part to my wife, Karin's review. There was a 2000 character limit on the review.

Wow. Where to start. We got engaged Christmas Eve of 2012 and didn't really start looking for venues until the middle of 2013. After looking at about 30 venues online and visiting about 8 of them in person, we decided on the Andaz in West Hollywood. At first I thought that I would only need a coordinator for the day of the wedding. I thought, 'Hmm...calling a few vendors and buying decorations and have someone oversee everything on the day of? I should be able to do it myself'. I started multiple Pinterest boards, ranging in topics from decorations, to venues, details, desserts and so on. I also signed up for a few different wedding magazines for inspiration. I thought I had everything mapped out for the wedding until I started the daunting task of trying to find actual vendors for everything, asking for quotes and looked into all of the decorative details that were required. Easier said than done. Working a full time job in retail and then having to come home and plan a wedding sounded a lot better in the early planning phase than it actually was once I started.

This is right around the time that we had decided to meet with potential photographers for our special day. After many hours of research and looking at other couple's wedding pictures, feeling like a stalked that knew all the details of a couple's wedding; we decided that it was time to meet with a few of the photographers. Sam Lim was the third person that we met with, and they do say, third time's a charm. He is so talented and super creative. At the end of our meeting he asked if we were in need of any other vendors and I thought, why not talk to a planner to see what their thoughts are. It can't hurt to hear the opinion of a professional. Sam handed me Grace's card and that is how it all began..

What should I say!!!!
It's truly tough to describe our appreciation for Grace briefly.
She is creative, organized and well connected to the event planning community.
We worked with her for the past year to plan our wedding for 70 at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu.
One of my close friend introduce Grace to me.
and when we met for the first time, instantly drawn to Grace's personality,
which is casual yet professional, humble, kind and warm.
We boned to her right away!
She had endless ideas, but is never pushy.
She engages like a friend while skillfully managing the timeline.
With her help, we were able to easily choose an exceptional team of vendors early on.
We don't regret a single choice.
She also made my dreams come true with limited budget.
I always wanted to have my wedding theme like movie Twilight saga, and it happened to me :)
She is always a joy to be around, but especially the weekend of the events.
She and her teams managed all the moving pieces and executed a beautiful,
seamless event. In the days after the wedding, our families have been endlessly praising Grace's talent, creativity, and personality.
Working with A Charis Event was the most important planning decision we made.
We are forever grateful!

We had Grace for our wedding planning for a year at Calamigos Ranch, and she deserves more than 5 stars. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for 'the BEST wedding planner' for their wedding.

*Quality of Work: Details, Details, Details
Firstly, we loved Grace so much because of the quality of her work. There is no doubt about the fact that she is one of the top planners in L.A. I got to admit that I was really surprised with the result - 'Far exceeding my expectation'. Also, Grace has so many connections in her respective field. I.e. She is friends with everyone in this industry! We definitely took an advantage of it as we got to work with the top photographer, florist, and patissier in our town, who were all her friends!! We enjoyed every bit of wedding prep with her

*Professionalism & Friendship
She is the professional who knows how to take care of her client. She was very responsive and flexible when having meetings with us and answering to our requests, and kept updated us with the progress. But, we loved her so much because she became our FRIEND at the end. We were extra happy during our wedding prep because it was fun working with our friend :)

Grace is da best!

From Start to finish this was an incredible experience! Charis Event & Design as the wedding planners for my wedding was THE best decision I made.

Grace and Robin did EVERYTHING possible to make all planning seamless. Her advice, elegant taste and endless patience were incredible. I can't even imagine how people do this without her!

She's friendly, warm, and honest--makes her feel more like a girlfriend than your contractor/vendor. There is not one detail she missed and so much she just took charge of in a positive way and got everything done to perfection. Everyone told us it was one of, if not the best wedding they ever attended.

Thank you so much for all your hard work! You have no idea how much I appreciate what you have done to making my wedding so special.

You are the best...!!

Grace and her team is super-awesome. My husband and I don't live in Cali but had to have our wedding there since all our family and freinds are there. The problem was that we did not have any time to prep our wedding. So I hired Charis events and it was the best choice. I wanted something unique and affordable wedding. She coordinated from the beginning to the end to make that happen. Since we weren't in Cali, Grace took care of stuff like talking to the vendors. Everything went smooth and my wedding was perfect. Grace is so talented and she designed my entire wedding so elegant and gorgeous. You might think its a bit pricy, but it is worth it if you need help with coordinating your wedding.

Everyone thought that getting married around Thanksgiving is crazy and they said Friday weddings are the worst, but guess what? I nailed it with Grace's help. Grace is truly a pleasure to work with. She listens to you and advise you when you seek for her help. I totally trust her with the sense of design. She's not only a great event designer, but also really wonderful with fashion. She is the go-to-person when you're getting married. Regardless of my problem with Thanksgiving season and even on weekday wedding, all my guests enjoyed our wedding. I had full trust in her and she really came through above and beyond.

I know that everyone feel the same about the wedding planner and wedding planning service. You know you need it, but you also know that you just need someone to take this role to save some money. I asked my sister to take this role in the beginning and thought that this is going to be great, since she knows me well and overall we're family! Guess what, it didn't take too long to find out the importance of hiring a REAL PLANNER who knows what he/she's doing. My sister and I thought that we knew what we were doing, but we're absolutely WRONG. Our budget was structured poorly, even myself is a CPA, and my sister and I got emotionally bothered as time goes by and finally got in the biggest argument. I'm so glad all happen because I really got to appreciate Grace about what she had done for me. From the major to minor, she was there every step of the way and made my wedding second to none. No more arguments with my sister, no more arguments with my husband, but only happy tears on the day of my wedding. I hope other brides don't waste of their time to save the cost and looking for unprofessional wedding coordinators/planners. Do yourself a favor and hire Grace Song!

Charis Events was a lifesaver. They took a very limited budget and truly made the impossible happen. My wife was very impressed and astonished at the creativity that came from such a small budget. We had so many turbulent dealings with other vendors and this one was absolutely a delight to work with. Grace who owns the company is professional, creative, and pays attention to detail. She really came through and brought out the best from what we had to work with. I hope that others in the future planning a wedding in LA could give her a shot to design something that will impress you. Unlike other vendors who talk a big game, over promise, she and her team came through and were clutch!

They soeak both Korean and English and very respectful to may parents, relatives. Our parents were very pleased and all my guests still talk about my wedding how perfect everything was.

My wedding was everything I could have imagined and then some. Grace went out on a limb to make sure I have everything I wanted. I am a full time student and also have a part time job so it was extremely difficult to plan a wedding. Let's just say Grace was the super hero! She knew exactly what I wanted from the ambiance down to the stationery. It was worth every penny and I cannot possibly think of a more qualified event coordinator. Definitely would recommend Charis Events & Design to any bride-to-be!

Hello all future brides!!!

I'm so glad that I met Grace at Charis Events. Grace came highly recommended by one of my best friends over years ago and I finally contacted her for my wedding as soon as I got engaged about 5 months ago. I never know that all can be happening in such a short period of a time, but I knew I was in good hands when I met Grace. Grace and her team were very professional, helpful and attentive. My wedding went extremely smooth because Grace knew all the vendors and they have been working together years and years. Grace was on top of everything with the time-line, styling and also took care of me and my brides-maids. Charis paid attention to every detail and made sure everything is carried out perfectly and in a timely manner. Don't hesitate and call Charis Events and Design. They don't only provide wedding planning service, but are miracle workers and they will save your wedding day!

I’m just so glad that I met Grace and Charis Event team in my life on a very important day of my life. I want to give them 100 stars if I can, because they totally saved my life on my wedding day!! So many things happened…Believe me. It really all happened! Although so many things were going on, Grace handled everything so professionally and so completely, we were able to enjoy the day without worrying about logistics.
First, I have to let you know that we got married at my parents’ backyard and all the things were not as easy as it could have been at elsewhere (like hotels or other wedding places) we had the a big mirror with the guest seating, a gift from my cousin, got broken during carrying my stuffs from our family member. But Grace stayed completely calm and came up with an incredible idea, and she ran out last minute to get the couple of mirrors and start writing the guest names (beautifully) and decorated on a table next to where we’re getting married. It looked AMAZING and she somehow managed to do this with mere hours left before our weddin, in the middle of trying to coordinate everything else.
Grace also coordinated everybody (DJ, Bartenders, Rental, Lighting, etc) staying couple more hours later than expected because the party was so much and nobody wanted to leave. And, when a really important family member was an hour and a half late, she managed to keep all the guests blissfully occupied and keep everything moving smoothly. She is a pro at managing dynamics and was an awesome buffer when difficult situations occurred.
When one of the very important guest fell off the chair, she also helped them with the first aid kit that she carried around and also sewed one of my bridesmaids dress when the zipper popped open.

Most importantly, Grace always had a smile on her face and kept me (the bride) calm during moments of nervousness. We always had complete faith that she would make our event beautiful, and we were not disappointed.

Grace Song is the BEST wedding planner (and designer) in Los Angeles. I can’t imagine how anyone else can be better than Grace Song. Grace is the best because she will take your concept and vision and help you create the perfect wedding that you dreamed of…. except that it will turn out to be more graceful and elegant than you ever imagined !!!!

We had our wedding at the Garden Terrace in Newport Beach Hyatt on 3/23/2013 and thanks to Grace it was everything that we imagined and more… WAY MORE! We are few weeks out from our wedding and people are still talking about how beautiful our wedding was.

From the moment Grace came onboard, Grace literally advised us on everything…..from selection of the venue to selection of all the vendors (wedding invitations/programs/table name cards/wedding favors, flowers, tuxedos and dresses, DJ, jazz band, lighting, photographer, cake and dessert, etc.) Grace participated in every stage of the process: she attended the menu tasting; visited wedding shops with the bride; directed the rehearsal; and of course ran the entire show on the day of our wedding. Her advice (about everything) was always spot on and we couldn’t be happier with the choices we have made.

Grace’s greatest strength is her creativity and attention to detail. Word can’t describe the beautiful decorations and innovative designs that Grace (and her staff) implemented. Our outdoor wedding was spectacular…. the rose lined garden path was sophisticated (heart shaped roses!) and the strands of flowers (rose petal chains) hanging from trees was perfect ingredient for our garden wedding. Our indoor reception area was stylish…the tabletop fabrics, decorative pieces and furniture that she used was more than perfect. Words do really fail to describe our joy when we walked into the reception room.

We are truly blessed to have had Grace for our wedding. Thank you Grace. Chin and Kate.

I am the mother of the groom. Since my son and soon to be daughter in law were out of Los Angeles, where the wedding took place, I needed so much help and that is when one of my dearest friends suggest hire a Wedding Planner. We had Grace at Charis Events for our Wedding Planner. Best decision we made. Grace was the best "investment" I've made in a long time. With her help, we had a fabulous wedding for my only son. You have only one chance and we could not have pulled this off without Grace. everything went as planned and the stress level was minimal. I would without hesitation suggest that you hire Charis to help with your wedding. You all will not be sorry.

Grace and her team are wonderful! From beginning to end, Grace made sure that my best interests as the bride and our particular vision for our wedding for her absolute priority. She never pushed her own agenda, but was committed to creating the simple and elegant wedding that we wanted. She listened to what we wanted and then marshaled her own great taste and judgment (very simple and classy), not to mention her vast network of vendors, to bring to life our perfect wedding day. In the execution of every step, Grace personally oversaw that everything from the wedding invitations, exquisite sweet table, floral arrangements, beautiful table settings, placement card table, and so much more to facilitating negotiations with the videographer and photographer (among others) were completed in a timely and competent manner. On the day of the wedding itself, her rigorous attention to detail ensured that everything went off without a hitch, even going so far as to retouch my make up for me during the reception. She also made sure to collect my personal belongings for me in the chaos following the reception, a thoughtful gesture that I really appreciated. Grace works very well with all the other vendors and coordinates the timeline from the beginning of our ceremony to the very end of the reception.
Most importantly, however, she was so sweet, kind, detailed-oriented, professional, and hardworking that it was truly a pleasure to work with her. Wedding planning is not just a job for Grace, she really loves and finds joy in making the most special day for the bride and groom. It was truly a blessing to have Grace as our wedding planner!!!

Grace, of Charis Events, is everything you could want from a wedding planner: she's stylish, supportive, creative, diligent, and honest.
Even though I was in New York for a whole time during the wedding planning stage and only met her once, she planned my wedding perfectly in just 3 months. Grace understood my vision perfectly; from the big picture to all the amazing little details she created/suggested. I would recommend her services to anyone planning an event.

Trust me, I've interview more than 10 wedding planners and coordiantors for my wedding and I finally decided to go with Grace at Charis. Grace is a pro...in the best sense of the word. First off, I believe that the expense of hiring a wedding coordinator is well worth the cost, provided you hire the right one. She is extremely professional, prompt and tasteful. It wasn't so much that everything was out of control; more that I needed follow-through on things that were already set and help finding a few key vendors that had yet to be chosen...this four weeks before the wedding. Ever resourceful, she came through with nary a hair out of place - everything remained calm - and most importantly my fiance (now husband) and I were able to appreciate our special day. She was not the cheapest coordinator I interviewed, but she was the one that I felt most in sync with. I had no qualms over her representing me. Basically I was able to trust her enough to let her do her job, which was to help make my life a lot easier as the clocked ticked down to the big day. I'd work with her again, but hopefully not on another wedding for myself.

Grace, where do I begin? I can't begin to describe how amazing Grace was. Grace was always so organized, professional, calm, full of sage advice. She was always willing to meet, answer questions, and offer great ideas. Grace helped us select great, affordable vendors. Her coordination with them was invaluable to us.

I have to stress the one of the best and most surprising thing about working with Grace was that she was always willing to come with us to meet vendors. She was with us for our cake tasting, all our location walk-through, even my hair and make-up test. It was this flexibility combined with her great design sense that helped created all the fabulous details which made our event so special.

Like I said, I cannot say enough about how lucky we were to have Grace. The day of the event was wonderful as well. Grace and her staff coordinators were very professional and they looked after us while overseeing the entire event. In summary, she's a great professional with amazing taste who really cares about her clients having great events. Grace -- we can't thank you enough!!!

I knew I wanted to hire someone for our wedding from the very beginning, and finding Grace from Charis Events & Design was truly a gift from heaven.

She listened and understood exactly what I wanted my wedding to look like. The eight months we worked with her was extremely inspiring. Her advice, suggestions and knowledge was amazing.

Her team was professional and extremely helpful.
Nothing went wrong because she was so organized.

Don't second guess yourself! get a wedding coordinator for your special day! Your focus should be your hubby and loved ones during this special day.

We love Grace Song from Charis Events & Design! She made our wedding day the best day of our lives.

Our wedding day was produced with so much preparation ahead, my head hurt. But Grace helped us get through the tough decisions, making the necessary recommendations and deals to finalize the numerous packages.

Grace has proven to be very resourceful and thorough in planning for the day. While we went into the preparations with several ideas of our own, I think she would be a great fit for couples who want and need many suggestions in style, trend and event aesthetics.

Vendor recommendations also were great, from venue and photo/videography to catering and food/beverages. The food was actually better on the day of wedding, than when we went for tasting...which was a pleasant surprise. :)

Grace came highly recommended through some friends that had worked with her for weddings/events, and to some it all up...just AMAZING!!! I had about 6 months to plan my wedding, but was nervous because I wasn't sure if that would be enough time to get everything done, especially since I'm soooo indecisive. Grace helped me from securing the venue to every last detail. She understood what I wanted my vision to be for my wedding, as well as my budget. Everything turned out to be more than I had ever expected. From the venue to the every last detail of the wedding day, I didn't have to worry about anything as I knew that I was in trusted hands.. My FAVORITE part was the gorgeous dessert table, with all sorts of goodies from macarons to color matching cake pops. My wedding day turned out to be more than I can ever imagine. To that, i'm forever grateful...

Grace and her team were fabulous! My husband and I got married at The Victorian in Santa Monica on 11/12/11, and honestly, I couldn't have been happier with Grace's services. She has impeccable taste and a keen eye for details- she brought in an antique typewriter as well as many other props to fit the theme of our Victorian style venue, and I didn't have to spend extra money to rent them because they were hers! Her ideas were unique and brilliant, and everything (I mean, EVERYTHING!) was executed perfectly. I didn't have to worry about a thing because she took care of it all! She went over and beyond to make my wedding day stress-free, and I cannot thank her enough! Thank you, Grace!

If you are looking to hire a wedding planner/coordinator/designer, look no further! Hire Grace and you will not regret it! Also, make sure she designs your dessert table- mine was simply divine!!!

Grace did such a wonderful job helping us plan and coordinate our wedding. She has such great taste and is abundantly blessed with creative ideas. Grace helped make our wedding more beautiful than we could have ever imagined ourselves. We especially liked the way that she arranged the flowers, displayed the food and dressed the tables! Everything was so beautiful, and she is such a great person to work with. We would highly recommend her to all of our friends and family.

Grace was recommended by one of my best friend who got married about a month before me. That's how I met Grace... at my friend's wedding. I was a bridesmaids and was very amazed of her work and realized that I need a Coordinator for my wedding. I hired Grace for the month of/day of wedding package, which she doen't normally do(She only plan and designs the wedding) but that was the only time I've got until my wedding. She gladly took me and what she provided me was above and beyond what I had asked for. She will constantly be one step ahead of you, which is absolutely crucial during wedding planning! After our initial meeting, she has already compiled information regarding all my vendors, events throughout the wedding day, color schemes, etc. She was able to point out small details I overlooked and suggestions to improve the flow of the wedding. On the actual wedding day, Grace and her team tended to everyone from families to friends to wedding party to vendors and most importantly, to us! What amazed me the most were all the issues I found out afterwards that were miraculously resolved immediately by Grace. Having Grace as a part of your day will be one of the best wedding decisions you make!

I was very pleased with this company. All the vendors were coordinated perfectly for my wedding day and I didn't feel worried about their capabilities. They created beautiful floral arrangements and decorations for the ceremony and reception. Due to the distance, I only met with Grace twice and spoke on the phone several times with many emails. Her emails were responded timely and she was always very professional. She even brought two people to help on the day of.

Grace at Chairs Events helped me tremendously! She gave great ideas for all aspects of the wedding and reception and she was available when I needed to talk. She also connected me to some awesome vendors! On the day of, her staff was very helpful and professional. She stepped in to make my mom feel at ease to enjoy the day instead of running around trying to do last minute stuff. That was so important to me!

Grace is such a live saver!!! she saved my wedding day :D I thought I could easily go through my entire wedding day without a coordinator and it just wouldn't have been the same. Grace was on top of the ENTIRE day and didn't miss a detail. Even guests made comments to me on how on top of it my wedding coordinator seemed to be.

From the first time I emailed and spoke with Grace, she always responded to calls and emails immediately and was always willing to meet with me when needed.

I know this seems to be one of the first things brides think they can do without because of the budget -- but please, for the sake of yourself on your wedding day (as well as your family and friends) make sure to have a coordinator and Grace is 200% the one to do it.
