I can't recommend Duncan enough!!!

When my husband I got engaged, I knew that I needed the help of a Wedding Coordinator. I spoke to several other Wedding Coordinators before meeting with Duncan. The others had romantic ideas and emotional outpourings, but I didn't need someone to hold my hand through the process. I needed someone like me. Someone who embraces the power of endless e-mails, adores their own OCD, respects generosity, practices gratitude, and understands that business is business and love is love -- even when the two go hand-in-hand.

Duncan was a savior during this process. I admire his kind heart, his keen advice, and his overwhelming patience (and I know I tested that with my many many e-mails, questions and changes). His connections and recommendations speak highly of his character.

I've was consistently impressed with the vendors he recommended. They have kind hearts and did admirable work, just like him.

He was early to every meeting. He responded quickly to every questions or request. He went above and beyond what I hired him for and exceeded my expectations.

When I look back at this wedding, I will always think of Duncan. He was the dark horse. He was the man behind the whole occasion. He is the reason that my husband and I will remember our wedding day as the start of our lives together.

To Duncan--- From the very bottom of my heart, and from Kelvin's heart as well, THANK YOU! I don't know how you do what you do - but you do it with grace and style.

We first heard about Duncan through rave reviews from friends and co-workers. When we met him in person, we discovered first hand his knowledge, professionalism and care that so many had described.
In our experience, we hired Duncan before we even set a date. He was instrumental when working with our vendors on finalizing contracts. He made things easy for us and always had our best interest in mind. Trust is key when working with a wedding planner for the biggest day of your life. Through months of planning, Duncan was there at every meeting, early, with his organized wedding binder and always with a smile. He had amazing recommendations - since he is a pro, he has a huge network of vendors, that have become friends, in the wedding business who are equally skilled and great to work with. He was also very open to work with any vendors who were new to his network of friends - basically Duncan can make anything happen and work with anyone in the business! It's an amazing trait! Being well respected in the wedding business, you will find a lot of vendors that actually look forward to working with him!

There were many moments where I felt Duncan went above and beyond his duties as a wedding planner and on the day of the wedding I was carefree and able to enjoy every minute knowing that with Duncan, my groom and I were in great hands.

Having Duncan as our wedding planner was the best thing we could have done for ourselves in the planning of our big day and now we can definitely say that with Duncan, your not just getting a wedding planner - you are gaining a fabulous friend!

I could not have been more happy with the wedding planning services provided by Duncan Reyes and his team. As an individual, he brings expertise, professionalism, business sense, flexibility, creativity and upbeat support to the one time in your life that you need exactly that. He is responsive and has the lightest touch, with the greatest impact. He has vendors on tap, but is open to vendors you bring in. When one of our vendors failed to provide services as paid for, he followed up and we were refunded fully. He keeps your budget in mind throughout, and has even the most random of requests covered. Over the span of the year we spent planning our wedding, I felt like I got to know and trust Duncan as that friend in your life that has the wisdom and insight you depend on daily. My family - notoriously critical - came to trust him completely to run our wedding with a firm, but gentle hand. He was fabulous. Do yourself a favor and send him an email.

5 stars all around for Duncan, who lived up to his legendary reputation. Duncan was actually the first vendor we hired. My husband had experienced Duncan's talent at his older brother's wedding and kept saying how smooth everything was. We were lucky that Duncan was available on our date and hired him without hesitation.

Starting the month before the wedding, Duncan was the main point of contact for every vendor we had hired. A wedding is such a production with so many people involved, so it was super helpful to have a coordinator handle major communications and follow up. Duncan came up with a detailed, 6-page timeline and ensured everyone knew where they needed to be at all times. He has great ideas and is always accessible, quick to respond, and detail-oriented.

One example that impressed me was how Duncan caught an error on my seating chart. To organize our guests, we had three different spreadsheets in Google Docs. One spreadsheet indicated everyone's entree selections. Another spreadsheet listed everyone by table. A third spreadsheet organized everyone alphabetically. Without my asking, Duncan cross-referenced the three spreadsheets and asked me if one guest was still coming, because her name with missing from the alphabetical order spreadsheet. Good thing Duncan caught that, because I was using the alphabetical order spreadsheet to lay out my seating chart! His timing couldn't have been better because he caught the error before I printed the chart.

Whenever anyone asks me how my wedding went, I tell them it was everything I hoped it would be and more. The day really was about as perfect as it could have been! I give a huge chunk of the credit to Duncan for making sure everything went off without a hitch. A relaxed bride is a happy bride. I absolutely recommend Duncan as someone you can trust to make your day happen. Hire him so that you can kick back and enjoy every moment!

I remember the day my fiance (at the time) told me we had to go meet with our wedding planner (Duncan). It was a Sunday and I was not pleased about it. I thought to myself, wow, this is going to take about 3 hours to get through and totally burn my Sunday.

I came out of that meeting floored by Duncan and remember turning to my wife and saying, "If I could hire 10 more of him and take them to work with me I would have the perfect team and we would accomplish great things." Seriously.

To say he's on top of his stuff is an understatement. He's not only incredibly considerate of your own thoughts / considerations but comes with a wealth of advice that he'll disperse appropriately and comfortably.
He'll also come with all the details / contracts / and anything else you can possibly think of prepared. What I thought was going to be a painful meeting going over the ceremony was incredibly enjoyable, fast, and efficient. This same experience happened again and again with him.

He is truly a pleasure to work with and I can't say enough great things. He exceeded my expectations beyond anything I thought someone was capable of; and that is quite a compliment considering I'm fairly (ok, very) critical. It is such a relief to be having him running point the day of as well - he's a game changer!

Before the venue, before the date, and even before the dress - we chose Duncan to be our wedding coordinator! He soon became our GO-TO person for everything from vendor suggestions, decor ideas, and just plain advice about anything we needed. I doubt anyone else could have executed our dream day any more perfectly than Duncan. To all the Brides on the fence about hiring a wedding planner, (as I was one!) it is a definite must. Duncan jumped in and took care of last minute headaches and unexpected whoopies - and there WILL BE whoopies! As perfect as our wedding was, it was Duncan and his A-TEAM who made it so. Thank you my JLO!!!

Five- stars is nowhere near the number of stars that Duncan deserves.

I first contacted Duncan almost 2- years prior to my wedding date to inquire about his services & pricing. He was very prompt in responding- he always is! Sometimes he even replied within the hour! We couldn't afford it back then (even the 2-week coordination), but when he contacted us again a year later, he mentioned that he was still available & w/ the downturn of the economy he lowered his prices. We were paying for the entire wedding ourselves, and at this point we already had most everything planned, bought, and booked. But we decided that having a professional brought in for the last (hectic, agonizing, anxious) 2-weeks would be worth it.

It was the best decision ever made. Although our wedding was in Carmel, and we would have had to pay for travel/lodging, Duncan waived it. He said he would stay w/ a friend in San Jose & wouldn't include the expenses in the final contract. And to sweeten the deal even more (and this was AFTER we decided to hire him for 2-weeks), he gave us 2-extra weeks for free! Can you say G-E-N-E-R-O-U-S???

When we had a photographer nightmare less than 3-weeks before the wedding, Duncan stepped in, contacted a few friends, & found us a Wooooo-nderful photographer to shoot our wedding (here's a shout-out to Mike Steelman Photography!). A talented photojournalist who happened to be free, & after hearing what we went thru, decreased his prices just for us!

We don't know what we would've done without Duncan. He did more than coordinate for us. He brought calm into the storm, made us laugh & smile when we wanted to throw our hands up and cry, & helped us enjoy our special day.

Duncan is the most amazing event coordinator a bride could hope for! Working with him was such a pleasure, just knowing he was there took so much of the stress away from the planning process. His eye for design is beyond awesome...he added some gorgeous touches to our wedding that I had never event thought or dreamed of. Knowing that our wedding day was in his capable hands made it possible for my husband and I to really absorb and enjoy our wedding, without the distraction of stressful last minute issues that of course always pop up during a wedding. We went with the month-of coordination, which was great in our case. There are so many crazy details to deal with those weeks before, and Duncan was there to guide us through and be sure nothing was missed (he saved us QUITE a few times from overlooking some important tasks that had slipped through the cracks). On top of being amazing at what he does, he has such a fun, outgoing personality too! It really made the planning process enjoyable, and not as stressful as it could have been. I've got nothing but good things to say about Duncan, and my husband and I truly believe that working with him was a vital investment towards the wedding of our dreams...

Duncan was invaluable. I planned my Napa wedding from NY, and he dealt with all the logistics, the decor, and details remotely. He allowed me to actually enjoy the wedding weekend instead of having to deal with crazy logistics and last minute coordination, as well as made sure the weekend and actual wedding looked beautiful and went smoothly. He was a lifesaver, and as much as I loved my wedding I think it would have been a nightmare without him!

A friend referred me to Duncan for my month-of wedding coordinator. It is extremely hard to articulate how amazing and fantastic Duncan is to work with. He is so experienced and truly understands what makes a fun, exciting, elegant wedding. He makes wonderful suggestions, knowing exactly what my husband and I envisioned for our wedding day. He does not "take over" by any means, and really allows you to be as involved in the process as you want to be and really makes your perfect day happen. I swear we could not have pulled off the wedding that we did without his help. I have received so many compliments from family and friends on how well-planned, how detailed and beautiful the wedding was. Duncan took care of everything on the day-of so I could truly enjoy the day with all of my guests. I had the best day of my life and I believe, hiring Duncan was the best decision I ever could have made as a bride. BRIDES: I strongly recommend you meet with Duncan. His calendar is filling up fast and he's doing the most ornate, amazing, awe-inspiring weddings out there. I feel lucky that he chose my wedding to plan!!

Absolutely fabulous, our wedding was such a success and fun time for everyone who come. Duncan was able to almost predict our needs before we they even occurred to us. He is a true professional and extremely detail oriented. I honestly can't say enough good things about him.

Amy Burke is probably the best I have seen. The flowers she supplied were amazing. She takes a lot of pride in her work and it does not go unnoticed.

Duncan by far, was the best investment we made during our wedding planning. Not only is he tremendously knowledgeable about everything weddings, he was able to pick up the slack of our reception vendor ever so gracefully and professionally. We were confident that through his knowledge and talents that we were taken care of. We had only heard of Duncan after we'd booked most of our vendors, but if we were to do it again we would hire him for full wedding coordination. I described my vision to Duncan, he went with it, and I was more than satisfied with the way everything turned out. Our guests were ooh-ing and ahh-ing about him too! We will definitely be recommending him. He is such a God send.

Five stars across the board! There would be no other score for Duncan. Duncan is the man responsible for my PERFECT wedding. Duncan is pure genius and nothing less. I could not have asked for a more beautiful wedding. He there for me when I had questions. He introduced me to the best (video, photography, cake, florals, decor) vendors that worked with me equally as professional and exceptional as he did. If I had to describe Duncan in one word, it would be AMAZING!

Duncan was wonderful to work with. Even though he has planned some very high-end and extravagant weddings, he made our small wedding feel just as special. He is very organized, always on time, has terrific ideas to make your event fabulous and also save some money. We would highly recommend him to anyone.

As the groom I was skeptical that we actually needed a wedding coordinator. I figured we could do most of it on our own and use friends and family to do the rest. Thank goodness I was overruled.

Duncan is an amazing professional who treated our wedding as if it were his own (and we know he had others to plan and coordinate at the same time). He fixed existing problems, anticipated problems that we did not foresee, was a great sounding board and most importantly he made sure that the big day went off without a hitch. By the end of our wedding day I wasn't sure whether my wife was more excited about getting married to me or about having the chance to hang out with Duncan.

He would have been worth at least twice as much as we actually paid him. Of all my vendors I recommend Duncan the most. I work with professionals on a daily basis -- Duncan truly lives up to the title.

We opted for full planning services. He knows the SF area very well and knows many vendors and has many clients, so he seems very busy. In hindsight, we probably would have been OK with day of planning services as well. Overall, we were satisfied with the way the wedding turned out.

I would highly recommmend Duncan as a wedding coordinator. I found him after my first planner went AWOL and more than one of the vendors I had already selected recommended that I work with him. He did an amazing job pulling together the details of the wedding and stepping into a wedding that was already in the works. I was particularly impressed on two points - that he was so well organized (my timeline was a work of art) and that he went out of the way to pick up some last minute things that I wanted for the wedding.

Duncan was extraordinary to work with. I have now idea how he keeps every little detail of every wedding he is working on memorized. He never had to look over notes when talking to me, and knew everything we had planned. He is truly amazing. He makes things fun, and he is extremely creative. He is smart and very organized. My husband tells everyone that it is the best money we spent on the wedding. This is the same husband who was asking me why in the world we needed a wedding planner. My dad also calls him his adopted son. Everyone loves Duncan. We have heard several guests at our wedding say that our wedding was the best wedding they have ever been too. Enough said!

Duncan was wonderful! I was panicking about the planning our wedding. Our wedding was in May, and when we met Duncan in February, we had done little but choose the venue.

He listened to all our input and came up with creative ideas and gave us a number of choices at each step. Duncan is extremely well-connected and suggested excellent vendors throughout the Bay Area. Only one vendor didn't quite work out, and we found someone else on our own. Duncan provided excellent advice on budget, and gave us tips on how to find good prices and what to look for with each vendor. We had an outdoor wedding for about 180 people and Duncan arranged a beautiful ceremony and reception for us. He took care of everything in a relaxed manner. Our guests said they had never had so much fun at a wedding. On our wedding day, my mom said that Duncan gave us the "dream wedding", which was true.

Lastly, Duncan is just a pleasure to work with. He's warm, has a great sense of humor and made us feel comfortable at each step. There were many days leading up to the wedding when my fiance and I looked at each other, said how lucky we were to work with Duncan. I know that Duncan has done so many weddings, but he brings so much enthusiasm, and made us feel very special.
