We had Marcella plan our wedding and reception. We were extremely happy with her services. When we started planning the wedding and reception, we didn't have many ideas about what we wanted. She gave us lots of ideas and options that we never would have thought of ourselves, and helped us figure out exactly what we wanted. She did a lot of things that really helped us with the preparations. She went with us to the flower vendor to help us choose flowers for the church and reception. She prepared a very detailed timeline, so that everyone, the wedding party, ministers, and vendors, knows what they will do and when. She helped make sure that everything was on track and nothing was forgotten. She contacted all of the vendors to take care of countless details. During the reception, she cued everyone for their parts and kept things on schedule, so that everything went very smoothly.

Marcella did all of this with a professional but friendly manner that made her an absolute pleasure to work with. I would recommend her planning services to anyone.

I didn't want to hire a wedding coordinator for the loooongest time. Luckily, someone talked me into it and I found Marcella. We hired her for day-of coordination, which actually includes her services 2 months prior to the wedding. She took a LOT of stuff off of my desk and dealt with my family (bless her). She did an amazing job. The only thing I took a star off for was having to drive out to crazy parts of LA to meet up! Highly recommend.

Melody & Lawrence - it was a pleasure working with you both. I loved how from the very beginning you told me you were very crafty and you surely weren't kidding. From the handmade place cards to your very own confetti, I loved your dedication. Thank you for taking my suggestions on some of these DIY projects... they all turned out beautifully. I was honored to share in your special day. I particularly enjoyed seeing you both dancing on the floor with your guests just letting loose and having a great time. Lawrence dancing to the "Napoleon Dynamite Song" was a classic fit I'll never forget :-) As your guests exited your wedding they all kept commenting what a great time they had. I loved helping you both bring together the wedding details that truly made your wedding unique and personal to both of you. Have fun reading all those wedding wishes from your magical "Wishing Tree". Much love in your marriage!

Words can not express on how grateful my husband and I are to have found Marcella/Events by Marcella. She is the most patient and well organized event planner that a bride could have asked for, specially when I was always freaking out on the deadlines and details. She made my dream wedding come true at MOLAA (Museum of Latin American Arts in Long Beach), was very flexible on the distance of the ceremony (St. Leo's Mission in Solana Beach, CA), and was always on top of the vendors.

On the day of my wedding I had no concerns on which vendors would show up or at what time they would be at the reception/ceremony, she took care of EVERYTHING! She is very professional and always maintains her cool when being in wedding mode.

The one thing I told her on our first meeting is that I am all about details and want to make sure that even the smallest detail was taken care of and would be represented well at our wedding. And what did she do, she took care of all the smallest details and took care of my husbands concerns on the wedding (cake, food & music)! For example, the candy bar was a success, the food (TGIS catering) was amazing, the cake was awesome, and I can not forget our own self made invitations, the BEAUTIFUL center pieces by Ixora Florist, and our hand made save the dates! In each of these categories the details where very well shown/represented, and Marcella knew very well what vendor would suit our style of wedding. Thank you Marcella, we are truly grateful to have found you! Our wedding wouldn't have been a success with out ALL of your help!

Awww Ana and Iban - what can I say... it was truly a pleasure working with you both. It's a beautiful thing to work with such a genuine couple that are in love and ultimately trust me with the most important day in their lives so far. I appreciate all the credit you are giving me, but it's truly a team effort with all the wonderful vendors you booked through my suggestions. You are a visual person and I knew that showing you photos, going to Papersource with you, shopping for your dress, going to cake tastings, and so much more would pay off. When we met well over a year ago now, I knew I wanted the opportunity to work with you because I could already envision your Classy Hacienda inspired wedding. I'm honored that you trusted me and that your family embraced me as well on the day of. It was truly a pleasure and I hope our friendship continues for many years to come. I wish you both a great marriage, which I have no doubt you'll have!

I hired Marcella as my Day of Coordinator and she did a fantastic job of making sure I was stress-free on my wedding day. She is extremely organized, came up with great suggestions on my timeline and helped manage all of my vendors so that I had nothing to worry about. She is very professional and courteous and works so far above and beyond what she is paid. I'm very grateful to have had her help.

Marcella was our coordinator for our August 2010 wedding. She was very helpful from the preplanning process to the day of. She had so many great ideas and brought to our attention details that we would never have thought of. She was very patient with us as we were late to most if not all of our meetings with her. She so kindly helped us scan our MANY photos for our montage to be shown at our reception. Marcella helped us design our ceremony programs to match our theme. She even surprised us with elgant menu cards for our guests. It's all the little details that make your wedding personal and memorable and Marcella made that happen for us! She also referred to us some awesome vendors for flowers and lighting! Marcella worked with our limited budget to create a beautiful Spanish themed wedding for us! Everything looked amazing especially the reception room! Our guest kept telling us that the reception looked like a wedding reception for the rich and famous! LOL My husband and I couldn't be more happy! Thank you Marcella!

Michelle and Kenny - I was so happy you chose to work with me. From the moment we met and you described to me the wedding you envisioned, I could see it. Your Spanish themed wedding with Reds, Black and whites came together beautifully. I'm so happy you also chose to get lighting because it really does transform the room. The linens and flowers were beautiful, but the lighting is the cherry on top. The details and personal touches are what make a wedding special and unique to each couple, so I'm thrilled that you noticed everything and loved it!

Bobbie and Hugo - it was an honor to be part of such a special day. I know due to uncontrollable circumstances the wedding date kept getting postponed, but when it finally arrived... it was beautiful. You are one of my favorite DIY brides. I loved that you created all your stationary and kept the same theme throughout. Your candy station, custom linens for sweetheart & cake table, and your photo booth were so much fun to organize and see come to life. I tell this to every couple and I'm so glad you saw that from the beginning... the details are what make the wedding unique and personal. It was a very special day and I was very happy to be a part of it.
