Satra was extremely helpful to me and my family for my month-of wedding needs. I live on the east coast and my wedding was in California -- she relieved a lot of the stress that comes with planning a wedding 3,000 miles away. She is professional, organized, and very calm. I would recommend her to anyone that wants a stress-free wedding day!

Satra was such an essential help to our wedding planning. We booked her for day of services but received so much more. She met with us multiple times and went through creative ways to make our multicultural wedding meaningful. If I ever had any questions or having issues with a vendor she was wonderful at stepping in and making sure we were all set. The day of went smoothly and I never once felt worried about how the venue would look. She did every detail to what I wanted and even had some decorative items that added to the decor.

I would highly recommended her and everyone from our vendors to our wedding party enjoyed working with her!

Satra was the month-of coordinator for our San Francisco wedding and we could not have been happier with her services. Going into the planning process, we weren't sure we wanted to hire a coordinator as most of our friends hadn't gone that route, but we also wanted to make sure our families could relax and enjoy the event, and looking back, I can definitely say we made the right decision.

As soon as the month before our wedding began, Satra took over our vendor communication. She asked for very little of us during this month while handling all the vendor timing and coordination specifics in the background, only really contacting us with helpful suggestions we may want to take into account for the flow of our day. This in itself was a huge help and early on, our other vendors appreciated her professionalism.

On the day of, there were multiple mishaps with vendors being late because of unusual traffic, and she handled it all so calmly and smoothly - I didn't even find out about it until the day after! My mom too, who normally would have been stressing out immensely with such delays, really appreciated having Satra's calming presence and emphasized how great a job she did that day of managing everything that came up. Overall, hiring Satra was one of the best decisions we could've made - she really made the whole event and everything going into it more pleasant for everyone involved.

Satra is Great! We used her month-of services, but if I were to do it again I would have booked her full-service package.

She's calm, has everything under control, and is always cheerful and fun to have around. She's also super organized with spreadsheets and google docs, which I loved! She's got great taste, and she's great at working with all the other vendors. All of our other vendors loved her too!

Satra made the details of our wedding come together exactly how we envisioned. Her attention to detail, staying on schedule, keeping us calm, and executing what we had discussed was exactly what we needed. She helped make a perfect wedding day even better.

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.
