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 :)

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.
