After planning our wedding for roughly a year and having all of the vendors secured, everything fell apart with three months left. On top of this, we live in Northern Cal and our wedding was taking place in So. Cal so we were doing everything from a distance. I reached out to Candice as an old classmate and a highly recommended wedding planner to see if she had any recommendations because she had just had a baby. In an effort to help out beyond belief, she offered her services.

Within weeks of hiring Candice, we had secured a new florist and found a new rental company. She understood our vision and made every effort to guarantee me our day would be perfect. She made herself extremely accessible and her organization allowed me to relax and actually enjoy the process. Not only did Candice plan the perfect day, she went above and beyond by having several conversations with our somewhat difficult venue coordinator. My worries honestly diminished and to anyone who knows me, I’m a complete worrier that loses sleep.

My wedding ceremony was a little unconventional but Candice made everything flawless. She oversaw all aspects of the day and we still talk about how perfect our wedding was. There were a few hiccups during our reception but no one would have ever known because Candice handled it immediately and in such a discreet manner.

I have to believe things happen for a reason because if things wouldn't have fallen apart earlier in our planning, I would have not had the privilege to work with Candice. I am 100% sure that my wedding would have not been as perfect as it was without her coordinating services. She completely goes above and beyond to make the day perfect and works uniquely with each bride to ensure she is capturing their visions. I truly believe anyone is lucky to have her as their coordinator because their day will be nothing but perfect. I am extremely grateful for her services and for making our wedding day more memorable than we ever expected.

My new wife and I thoroughly agree that we would not have been able to pull off our wedding day without the exceptional help of Candice and her team at De-lovely Events. From the early planning stages til the very end of our big day, De-lovely Events helped us bring our vision for the special occasion to life. Candice also has this amazing talent of compelling all of the family members involved to go where they are supposed to go, when they are supposed to go. That was much appreciated as the family was hard to corral.
We are so happy with De-lovely Events. The whole crew is so friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and hard working! They really do all they can to ensure that the day is all about the happy couple, and that we don't have to stress about anything on that day. I must say we were a lot more relaxed than we would have been had we not had Candice on our side. She answers every email and phone call and text message quickly and completely. I really can't say enough good things about the service we received from De-lovely.
If you're having second thoughts about hiring them... don't! Call them, you'll be glad you did!

Candice was amazing! I'm an OCD bride who assumed my attention to detail would carry me through the planning process....but when I got stressed and wanted to wash my hands of it, Candice was there to save the day, wrap up all the details, and ensure I could truly enjoy my day. I would highly recommend her services to any bride, regardless of how much (or little) coordination service they need. Candice got us great prices on rentals, referred us to AMAZING vendors, and was such a pleasure to work with. She's a must-have for any bride to be!

Candice was by far my biggest ally throughout the wedding process. She was always a phone-call away, responsive, kind, generous, and ready to take action. She was timely with her feedback and corrections to contracts or contact with other vendors, and she always made me feel at ease.

Candice was so professional on the day of, that my parents said "Wow, what a great service she's provided for us!" I was impressed with how knowledgeable she was of timeline, service, and every unimaginable detail in a wedding. She even remembered to set aside a plate of appetizers for us while we were taking pictures, so when we finally sat down after being introduced, we had a quick bite before moving on to the next activity.

Truly 5 star service, would recommend to anyone!

It was a pleasure working with De-Lovely Events! Candice and Abbi were awesome! They made sure that the most important day of our lives ran smoothly. I knew I didn't have to worry about a thing because I knew DLE was already on top of it. From day one they were there helping me through everything, always just a phone call or email away. Candice and her team are extremely skilled, knowledgeable, helpful, professional, and efficient at what they do. They're naturals!

We have received many comments about how wonderful our wedding was and I know if De-Lovely Events was not there, it would not have gone as perfectly as it did! I can't say enough good things about them. We all agree that it was the best money spent on our wedding!

Candice was amazing! I would definitely recommend her to other brides or anyone planning a party. Within one week of meeting her at an event she coordinated, I made an appointment to meet her one-on-one to discuss hiring her as our wedding planner.

I met another planner 6 months before I hired Candice and she wanted everything to go her way and didn't see my vision which made me hesitate with hiring a planner. Most of the other planners I contacted didn't back to me until 3-5 days later. Candice responded to all texts/phone calls/emails w/in a day (actually, more like in the hour if she didn't have another event going on).

She had everything under control on our wedding day. Unbeknownst to me, the officiant was late, and I didn't even know until my husband told me the next day. She kept me calm and had everything perfectly organized. I have referred Candice to (2) potential clients so far and our wedding was only 1 1/2 weeks ago! Everyone at our wedding loved her. My mom and in-laws are still talking about how wonderful she was.

Our day couldn't have gone as well as it did w/o her help and support. We were very lucky. Our relatives and friends are still texting us telling us how beautiful our wedding was-and we have a lot of critics amongst us due to the many weddings we've attended recently for family and friends.

Candice from De Lovley Events did a GREAT job helping me plan my wedding. For a year before my wedding she answered all my emails in a timely manner and had answers to all my questions and was there for me when i needed her. she did a wonderful job at my rehearsal and kept everybody in perfect order. When the day arrived she was on her feet the entire time and never sat down which allowed me and my husband and family to enjoy the day completely. She took charge of everything that needed to be done and Randy and i didnt have a care in the word except to enjoy our day. I appreciated her professionalism and courtesy towards me and all my guests. Loved it and loved her!!! She was and is greatly appreciated and i would recommend her to anybody!!!! thanks again!

SIMPLY AMAZING! Candice Bradley from De-Lovely Events was the day of coordinator for our March wedding at Rancho Las Lomas. She was worth MORE than every penny. She made everything run smoothly, she was extremely organized, had open communication with both of us through the whole process and with all of our vendors. As a bride, I was worry free and did not have to worry about a single detail. Candice also organized our rehearsal. She did an excellent job with that as well. She is always early to meetings. We LOVED LOVED LOVED her and would do it all over again.

I am so excited my husband and I hired Candice and her team to work with us during the month-of and day-of planning of our wedding! She really took a load off of our shoulders by doing the legwork in contacting our vendors, creating an awesome timeline, and getting the last minute details together before our big day. We had a wedding of nearly 250 guests and I must say her management skills were amazing. Not once did I see Candice flinch or stress out when things got difficult - ex. our officiate did not show up until 10 minutes before the ceremony and Candice already had a back-up plan ready (and on his way) just in case!

If you are looking for a coordinator who is decently-priced, flexible, and extremely skilled and knowledgeable about what they do, then I would recommend Candice and Dolcissima Events in a heartbeat! She also does other events - we might be booking her services again for my niece's Sweet 16 party this fall!

Candice and her team were tops! They did a WONDERFUL job with our wedding! Everyone raved about how the ceremony and reception was so organized, structured, amazing, and beautiful - and I truly believe it wouldn't have been possible without their help! They were able to capture the ideas I had in my head and executed them to a "T"! The team was able to put all the many little things/details I had and made them look organized and pretty! Dolcissima Events made the entire event look stunning - it's exactly as I imagined it to be, and more!!!!

And, you know how other couples would say that "the day went by so fast, as if it was a blur" - well that didn't happen to me at all!!! I was so comfortable on my wedding day, that I was able to fully soak in every moment that was happening - I took time to do everything, experienced everything, and remembered everything! And I don't think that would have happened if Candice and her team weren't there! I knew that prior to the wedding Dolcissima Events was going to take care of things, but come wedding day, Candice's constant reassurances just made me feel so at ease, that I did not worry about the "wedding planning stuff." I'm so glad she took care of my vendors and other requests, I was stress free and really just focused on "our wedding moment" and having fun - which I truly, truly did!

I'm so glad to have found Candice!!! She made the day special for us, but as well as the people in the wedding party, our family, and our friends - they had very little to do and all were able to just relax and have fun!

If you have some funds to spare, I would definitely go and hire a wedding coordinator. And, I highly, highly, highly recommend Candice and Dolcissima Events!!!
