We hired Satra for month-of coordination for our wedding. From our very first meeting, we knew that we were in great hands! Satra is professional, organized, easy to work with, and such a sweetheart. No detail was overlooked and she was always incredibly responsive to my many questions. The events manager at our venue was a bit difficult to work with at times, but she was persistent with him and made sure that we had our dream wedding. Everything was perfect on the big day, largely thanks to Satra's calm attitude and professionalism. I would recommend her to anyone!

Satra was amazing! She is super easy to work with and very responsive. She would respond to my emails within the hour or first thing in the morning if I sent her something super late in the evening. She was very accommodating to any changes that happened during the wedding and was extremely patient with my family members who did not speak any English.

Satra, was a truly an unexpected gift to us! We hired Satra without meeting her face to face (as were were planning our wedding from across the world). She is the consummate professional and worked extremely hard to make our wedding perfect. This is not easy as she was planning for an American General Manager running a luxury hotel and a Japanese designer who has perfection in his veins! Satra quickly grasped our vision, provided amazing selections for us to choose from and handled the few minor challenges along the way with ease and grace. After rating her a five above my only regret is that the system does not allow us to rate her a 10! Whether you will plan everything from thousands of miles away and show up expecting everything to be perfect on your special day or are in the bay area and can work closely with Satra we assure you there is no better wedding planner to work with! We very rarely write revue's on line; however, felt compelled to do so. In closing Satra is no longer our wedding planner as our wedding has passed; however, even more importantly we count her as a dear friend! Chris and Jun

We got married in May 2014 at The Ranch Golf Club in San Jose. Satra was our day of (and then some) planner, and in short did a fantastic job! We planned much of our wedding ourselves, but on the big day, it was so important to me that my now husband, our families, and our friends could focus on celebrating without worrying about the day proceeding smoothly. Satra put my mind at ease before, during, and after the wedding. At our pre-wedding meeting we found out that the on site event planner would not be there the day of our wedding. I was a little upset, but because Satra knew everyone at our venue, and sat through the review of details with me, my mind was put at ease. On the day of, Satra made sure everything looked beautiful and flowed smoothly. Satra is calm, organized, and firm without being overbearing. I highly recommend her, and Events by Satra.

Satra is AMAZING - she made our entire wedding happen. Where do I ever start about how incredible she is. Below are highlights:
- From the very first time we reached out, Satra was incredibly responsive and professional. Although we met in person and spoke on the phone before our wedding, we primarily used email to communicate throughout the planning process. I have never met anyone with faster response time than Satra. She would often reply in less than 20 minutes with detailed responses to all of my questions or thoughts.
- She helped us find remaining vendors that fit our image and price point. We found our amazing florist through her and we used the rental company she often partners with, which gave meant we got an incredible discount.
- She was a decor goddess! She helped us design a beautiful vision and make hard decisions about color, centerpieces, flower, ceremony order, etc.
- She is unbelievably organized. From her detailed vendor list to minute-by-minute timelines, I always felt like she was on top of things. She would often email me about little things I'd never thought of and it meant that on the day of, all little details were covered.
-In the days leading up to the wedding and especially on the day of, I wasn't worried about ANYTHING. Satra ran a smooth rehearsal, coordinated details with all vendors, and made sure we stuck to the timeline. They always say something has to go wrong on your wedding day. While that might be true, if it is, I didn't know about it because Satra had it covered.
- She is a simple joy to work with. She's sweet and kind, but knows how to take charge when needed.
We would recommend her to anyone who wants to be stress-free on their wedding day.

Satra was a dream to work with! She is so calm and professional and very good at what she does. The day of our wedding was so smooth and I really could not have asked more from a wedding planner. She is very kind hearted and has a wonderful personality which made the whole process so fun!

My husband and I are so happy that we had Satra's help with our wedding. She was a joy to work with, and we cannot recommend her highly enough. Perhaps the best decision we made in all our wedding planning was to hire Satra. Knowing that she had things in hand gave us peace of mind, which was priceless.

She promptly and sweetly answered every planning and etiquette question in the months leading up to the event. When the big weekend arrived, her direction for the rehearsal and day-of coordination were absolutely indispensable (especially given that getting our families in order is like herding cats). Always kind and smiling, her presence was calm and positive and unruffled. Everyone loved her, and she was just what we needed for what could have been a very stressful day. As it was, after handing the final details over to Satra at the rehearsal, I was more relaxed than I'd been throughout all the wedding planning and was able to fully enjoy the rehearsal dinner and the entire wedding day. I even slept easily the night before the wedding, which was completely miraculous. Amazingly, there were no last minute crises, no unhappy drama - all went off without a hitch - and we had the most wonderful weekend.

Satra was an incredible asset. We couldn't have done it without her.

Satra was more than we could have ever hoped for in a wedding planner. We originally enlisted her help as our "Month of Coordinator" but she was beyond flexible and understanding in offering us the support and guidance we needed outside of those four week parameters. She is a remarkable blend of a consummate professional, attention to detail, perfectionist, paired with the most laid back, calming and sweet demeanor that kept my husband and I confident that anything we were unsure of she would handle. Her amazing attitude and professionalism enabled us to enjoy our wedding planning process those last few months and to not sweat the zillions of little details bc we knew Satra was handling it.

Satra was our wedding coordinator for our Sonoma September 2013 wedding. She did an absolutely flawless job keeping all event logistics and vendors in order, along with conducting our rehearsal, all day of wedding set-up in addition to my last minute freak out regarding our seating chart - which she solved in an instant. Satra is the one vendor from our wedding that we would 100% re-hire without any hesitation. She is a seasoned professional who has a very calm demeanor, which is exactly what ever bride needs on her wedding day. I felt that her fees were very fair and competitive from the other referrals I contacted. Satra responded to all my e-mails & calls within a very short timeframe. She was there when we needed her most & you would be very lucky to hire her for your special day as she's a total gem in the wedding business!!!

It is hard to put into words how wonderful it was to work with Satra. Her attention to detail, and thoroughness are second to none. She is calm and carries a peacefulness that is very welcomed during the chaos that can ensue on your big day. I really appreciated how helpful she was in letting me be VERY involved in all aspects of the planning, yet kept us prepared and focused on the most pressing tasks. Her enthusiasm, experience and complete preparedness combine to create an unstoppable combination- if I could think it up- she could help me execute it. All of the recommendations she provided were outstanding. Our wedding day was a HUGE success due to the incredible team of professionals we had- all of which can recommended by Satra. (and also were all recommended in the budget which we created with Satra)
Aside from her enormous talents, she is a wonderful person at her core. I always enjoyed meeting up with her and consider her a friend.
I cannot recommend her highly enough for anyone who is like me- completely type A and overly excited (but completely clueless) about planning a wedding.
