I couldn't of asked for a better planner. I love google; which is where I found her. She was on time for every meeting we had , unlike us , and was very patient with us when we were late. Our wedding was beautiful, gorgeous and perfect and all the vendors she recommended from RLP Graphics (pictures) Oh La La flowers, Cakes to Celebrate , Luxury DJ, just to name a few were great. The entire wedding flowed so smoothly and everything we had planned out happend exactly when it was suppose to especially because she is very organized and had a timeline we had to follow . Our invitations , save the dates , and special touches Carmen added were more than we could of asked for . Totally worth the money. Thank you and Kevin so much for everything.

I cannot begin to express what Carmen and her team contributed to our destination wedding. From our welcome gift bags to my barefoot jeweled sandals to our photography to ceremony site to flowers... and everything in between, I could go on and on... Her attention to detail is second to none and not just for the big things, like ceremony site and photography, but for all of the "little" things that add up to be incredibly important in the end, like being a translator with our vendors (Cabo wedding).


Kevin did our photography, and we absolutely love what what he did for us. He was with us all day and worked tirelessly to make sure he got the perfect shots he was looking for. He's great with children so all of our 6 (!!) little ring bearers and flower girls allowed themselves to be photographed, and resulted in some beautiful pictures. I could not be happier with ALL of my pictures, my hardest decision will be which to blow up!


I have a very tough time making decisions and Carmen was able to guide me, step-by-step through the entire process and made it pain-free. It was raining on and off on our wedding day (we had an outdoor beach wedding), and Carmen was able to keep me calm and collected, I would have lost my mind without her. Through the entire process their team was upbeat, energetic, supportive and accommodating. Overall, their help was invaluable, and you can really tell the entire team genuinely and thoroughly loves what they do. I love them both and have such beautiful memories of my wedding day. I highly, highly recommend Expressionary Events. Best decision besides deciding to get married :)

I signed up for wedding wire specifically to review all of our wedding vendors. First of all, I didn't know what to expect from a "Day Of" coordinator. There are so many people in Southern California that want you to pick them for your big day. Carmen is the sweetest soul. She loves what she does, and therefore, she is incredibly talented. To choose a career in such an emotional field must be taxing. Finding her was a blessing. She never once made me feel like I didn't know what was going on during my big day. She calmed by nerves, she handled everything so professionally, and she put me and my husband's needs first. I never had to look for her during the day, she was amazing. I would want her at my side for any important day. Let's face it, I love her, and we can't thank her enough. If you don't select her for your wedding/event, then you're at a loss. Thank you Carmen, you are a game changer. <3

We cannot express enough how big of a role Carmen played in taking the stress off of us before and on our Wedding day. Carmen and her team went above and beyond to make sure all the details of our Wedding were exactly how we envisioned them and so much more. From our first meeting forward, she took our ideas, and added valuable input of her own based on her experience to made our Ceremony + Reception truly memorable. We even received numerous comments from our family and guests about how on-the-ball Carmen and her team were. Our whole wedding day flowed so smoothly. Even if there were bumps, we would've never known. Carmen never failed to make us feel important and special on this Big day.

Seeing now how detail-oriented and professional Carmen and her team were, we wish we could go back in time and hire her day one of our Engagement!

Want to know how Expressionary Events is good? I was referred to them from another Event Planner! Carmen and her team are so amazing, it's beyond any words I could use in a review. Carmen was my right hand gal for the month before my wedding and made the transition flawless! She set up my decor just the way I imagined, wrangled both crazy families at the rehearsal, handled a DJ situation, and kept our day on time and running smoothly! Carmen is worth ever penny and even more. Her professionalism, organization, and just over all personality and laugh was such a breath of fresh air. Thank you, Expressionary Events!!

Wedding planning can be very stressful, especially if you're busy going to school and working. I can't imagine having to have planned my wedding without Carmen's help. Carmen and her team were very easy to work with, professional, and were there to help us from the beginning till the end. They helped us plan our engagement party (decor, candy bar, entertainment), helped us create custom fabulous invitations (themed, with our colors), and even executed a fun filled bridal shower for our friends and family (without all the planning hassle). They also helped us produce a surprise MUSIC VIDEO that was filmed by the beach, which we got to show our loved ones during our reception on our wedding day. I am not gonna lie and say the "Big Day" isn't stressful, it is.... but Carmen and her team worked very hard to make sure nothing went wrong the day of our wedding. She was very organized and provided us and all the vendors with a detailed timeline/schedule to keep us on track. And I cannot stress this enough, but in the planning process, she always gave us options and alternatives to help us stay within our budget, while still maintaining the look we were aiming for at our wedding. Carmen also has a great working relationship with other vendors, which also ends up saving you quite a bit of money. My husband and I can be indecisive sometimes, but she was patient with us throughout the whole process. We couldn't ask for a better wedding planner :) I highly recommend expressionary events! Thanks for making our wedding day a dream come true!

Carmen was not only an absolute pleasure to work with but she is also incredibly talented and creative. I had a 200 guest wedding on a 13 acre private Estate in Santa Barbara and EVERYTHING ran smoothly and according to plan. She and her staff went above and beyond to make our special day perfect and everything that I had dreamed of. Carmen even surprised me with a personalized painting of my wedding dress on my wedding day!!!! I was floored with her generosity and attention to details. We really couldn't have picked a better wedding planner. She has impeccable work ethic and makes you her first priority. I would 100% recommend her : )

there aren't enough words in the world to express how amazing Carmen and her staff were on the day of our wedding and the weeks prior to. Everybody was thoroughly impressed with how professional and how calm and collected and organized they were. Everytime we needed something, Carmen or her staff was there to handle it for us and it made our wedding stress free. We always hear horror stories about weddings and bridezillas and situations that occur and ruin the day, but none of that occurred on the day of our wedding especially thanks to Expressionary events. this review truly cannot do justice to how amazing the staff of Expressionary Events really are. There is absolutely no doubt in our minds that we will recommend them to everybody we know that gets married in the future. Thank u for such a positive and joyful experience! !!!!!

Having Carmen be our event planner at our wedding was not only an enjoyable experience but stress free for sure. Carmen felt like she was part of our wedding with her warm and caring way of being. She always had a solution for everything and was always understanding and available at any time. I can honestly say that Carmen made my dream wedding be more than i ever wanted and dreamed of. Starting from every detail in decorations, to being very cordial and super friendly to all of our guests and us. She honestyl felt like a friend but very professional.That is why i can say that she was like a guest to us and not an event planner. She made me feel so comfortabke from the day we met and i appreciate every gesture and devotion she had in making sure we had the wedding of our dream. So If you are looking to find not only an amazing and professional event planner but more so someone that shows that cares about what you want then Carmen is the person to choose. You will love her through the whole process. and even after you would wish it never ended. that is how amazing she was

I cannot say enough about how wonderful Carmen made the entire wedding experience for us. She was organized, thorough, upbeat, and an absolute pleasure to work with. By the end of our first meeting, it was clear that she understood the vision that we had for our wedding. I found Carmen online and 3 things made me choose her company over others. 1) Carmen drove to us & met with me personally soon after contacting her 2) she seemed to be extremely organized and had an amazing sense of style and passion for weddings and 3) her website conveyed professionalism and I loved her pictures of her prior work. My husband and I both had a ton of little details that we wanted to see come to fruition on our wedding day. This could have been daunting, but Carmen was a master at translating our ideas into concrete plans and delivering above our expectations. Furthermore, she offered excellent advice and was incredible at troubleshooting difficult situations. She served as a wonderfully effective liaison between our vendors, wedding/reception site representatives, wedding guests, and even our parents. Whenever we had new ideas or questions related to our wedding day, Carmen was very responsive and always came back with great ideas and solutions.
On our wedding day, everything from start to finish was impeccable and ran incredibly smooth. Again, even in the face of immense logistical details that needed to be carried out, Carmen and her staff were on top of everything. Guests continuously commented on how smoothly everything ran and how everything was absolutely beautiful. I did not have a care in the world on my wedding day, except for relaxing, enjoying the time with my family and friends, and focusing on how amazing it was to be able to have such a special day to start my life with my husband. I enthusiastically recommend her to any bride looking for a stress-free and upscale wedding experience.

Carmen from Expressionary Events was my saving grace during my wedding and the months leading up to it. I cannot even begin to express how thankful I am for all of Carmen's help. When I first met with Carmen to see if she is the right coordinator for me, her words were, "I'm here to make sure the Bride is not stressed and all the vendors work with me. You just tell me what you envision and I will deal with the rest!" I trusted Carmen and she really made it happen. I had a large wedding of close to 280 people and 9 bridesmaids. Because of Carmen, I had the beautiful fairytale, romantic candlelight wedding I've been dreaming of. More importantly, when my wedding day arrived, I was able to enjoy every second of it and did not worry about the cake, flowers, lighting, hair, makeup, the limos, the church seating, the table arrangements, NOTHING! Carmen assured me she would take care of everything and SHE DID. Thank you so much, Carmen for helping make my dream wedding a reality! I mean this with all my heart. If I can make one recommendation to ANY bride, it is "GET A COORDINATOR AND MAKE SURE IT IS CARMEN FROM EXPRESSIONARY EVENTS!" She is extremely responsive, professional, confident, and more importantly, she puts the Bride first. I would like to mention that I had my wedding in Los Angeles, CA 2 weeks ago and I live and work in the United Arab Emirates and although it is an 11 hour time difference, this was not a problem for Carmen and she was responsive and ready to answer any questions I had anytime. You really are amazing, Carmen and thank you a million for everything! Tammy A. Azzam (May 27, 2012)

I LOVED working with Carmen. She was so helpful, she worked around my schedule, and she kept me from being too much of a bridezilla, which is difficult because I'm such a control freak! I wanted everything to be perfect and she handled everything so perfectly. I couldn't have pictured my day more stress-free and perfect.

After many hours of internet research, we scheduled interviews with four wedding planners who we felt could provide wedding day-of services. Our first and ONLY meeting-we were thoroughly impressed, so we canceled other appointments-was with Carmen of Expressionary Events. We were early, but Carmen was earlier. She was well informed, very prepared, highly qualified, and a genuinely nice person. Most importantly, she appeared to ENJOY the business. O.K., first impressions are great, but did Expressionary Events deliver you ask?

Quality of Service: We are both in our 40s and are not easily impressed anymore. Carmen and her team, which included Kevin, managed every single detail of our ceremony and reception exceptionally well. Expressionary Events provided us with an invaluable and detailed timeline of our wedding day. What we envisioned became reality!

Responsiveness: We had absolutely no problems communicating with staff. Email and telephone responses were returned, if not the same day, by the next day.

Professionalism: I actually asked our vendors about Expressionary Events' staff. All vendor responses were positve. Staff dressed in formal wear and looked like wedding guests the day of the wedding.

Value: Our research shows Expressionary Events' prices are very competitive. In fact, given the logistics of our wedding, Carmen added more staff at no extra charge. Reheasal was also included in their already reasonable price.

Flexibility: Carmen and staff did everything in their power within reason to satisfy the bride and groom. I, the groom, was involved in much of the planning process and can attest to the flexibility of Expressionary Events. We had a few unexpected day-of changes with the schedule. No one, but me and the coordinating staff knew about the changes because Carmen handled matters discretely.

In summary, many of our guests commented about how the wedding ceremony and reception proceeded smoothy and without any hitches. Carmen, Kevin, and staff know the wedding business and can definitely make wedding dreams come true. Finally, I can assure you Carmen and staff are good people who, when hired, will work their tales off to provide you with exceptional service.

-Extremely satisfied Bride and Groom,

I was a bride who thought that I had EVERYTHING under control for my wedding, but as the day drew closer I was becoming more and more stressed out and that's were the services of Carmen Robledo stepped in. After meeting with numerous amounts of wedding planners I knew Carmen was the one because she was the most organized and was willing to be with me every step of the way. The day of the wedding was even more beautiful than I could have imagined. Everything was perfect down to the last detail! So for all you future brides reading this, I HIGHLY recommend Carmen to do your wedding. She turned my dreams into reality and made them even better :)

From the moment we met Carmen and her team our first impression of them was that they were detailed, organized and professional. We assumed their packages would be expensive based on their quality of services, so when we were told their package pricing we were ecstatic that we would be able to afford their services. My fiancé and I decided to go with Expressionary Events’ full service package. Carmen was our planner and she was well informed in all areas wedding and was able to provide us with a spectacular venue as well as professional vendors. Carmen set up meetings with a photographer, videographer, Pastor, florist, DJ, and caterer, which we booked all of them the same day. The planning process was so seamless and relaxed. Carmen was always available to us and responded quickly with any question we had. She was in constant contact and was able to keep us within our budget with out compromising the look and feel we wanted at our wedding.
 
On the day of our wedding Carmen and her team provided exceptional service. I not once had to worry about finding any of my bridal party or running late. She kept us on time. The best part was that everyone had so much fun at our wedding. It was amazing to see the final product after all the months of planning done with Carmen. She was able to capture the vision I had for my wedding.
Thank you so much to Expressionary Events you are definitely an awesome company to have worked with.

Its not often that I take time to write a review about a company, but I feel obliged because of how much expressionary events did for me.
I was really hesitant about hiring a planner. Mainly because I was on a tight budget. After a short time I realized that hiring a planner can actually SAVE me money. Carmen (Expressionary Events) explained to me that because she has such great relationships with vendors she can cut out the “negotiating” and just get me the best deal possible.
I interviewed several planners and when I met with Carmen I felt like we just had really great chemistry. I felt like she had a great attention to detail….which is something I lack.
She was able to take my vision and bring it to life. More than anything I just felt like I could trust her with my wedding.
They made the entire event very a personable experience. I felt like they really got to know me, so they understood what I wanted my wedding day to be like. I was able to enjoy the day of my wedding because I felt like the details were being handled by my “fairy god planners.” I have recommended them to all of my friends, and will continue to do so.
