I am confident that no one in the industry does a better a job than Grace. We hired Grace two months before the wedding because I gradually became too overwhelmed with managing all of our vendors, especially one vendor who was being difficult. I also handed over event design to her, which resulted in the modern, sophisticated wedding that was better than we could imagine and way better than anything I could have done myself. Ultimately, she gave me the most important thing I wanted - the time and energy to focus on celebrating with my new husband, family, and friends. Grace is THE most professional person I have ever worked with (and I have worked with a lot of people!). She is extremely bright, creative, excellent at communication, highly focused, manages expectations (which are pretty high), and meets those expectations. Also, she works well with others and is a master at execution. Grace is absolutely trustworthy because she is honest, open, and has excellent judgement honed by years of experience. She was my number one advocate and used her vast knowledge and experience to get what I wanted in the most ethical and professional manner. I believe the value she provides would warrant her charging at least 10x what she charges. She recently planned 100% the one and only wedding on Angel Island (an amazing feat), which will soon be profiled in Martha Steward Weddings. However, I have no doubt that she provides the same level of service to each and every client regardless of budget. I know Grace does not market her services, but she is the event planning industry's greatest secret!

Although I now consider Grace to be a true friend, I can honestly and objectively say that Grace is an AMAZING event planner!! I met Grace after finally coming to the realization that I absolutely needed to let go of my wedding planning and look to a professional to take over the final days of coordination. It's no secret that I'm the most extreme type A person you would ever meet, so giving the reigns over to someone I didn't know seemed very unlikely. After speaking with Grace only once on the phone, I knew for certain I had made the best decision. Grace is EXTREMELY well organized and rehearsed in the in's and out's of events and has at some point dealt with every situation. My husband and I sat down with her just prior to the big day and she was able to systematically pick up on the ENTIRE year of planning we had done and execute every little detail without a hitch. I mean, she pulled together the timeline, put together the bridesmaid gifts, ensured there was an ample supply of beverages and snacks for the groomsmen and even had a sewing kit handy, so that when my husband's coat button popped off minutes before the ceremony it was back in place practically before it hit the ground!!! The most amazing thing about the coat button and several other typical wedding day issues that happened was I didn't even know about them. Grace just handled them. I can go on and on, but I think I've made my point. Grace is a must for ALL events, especially your wedding day!!!

True grace under pressure. When consistent rain showers threatened to disrupt the plans of an October wedding... Grace stepped in to make things happen. Just as planned. Flawlessly. She is your calm in the storm and orchestrates the entire process with precision and unquestionable flair. Grace handles her clients and her vendors with integrity and has an incredible eye for detail. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for exceptional service.

Grace Lee is amazing. She is well-organized, has great ideas, and a book of contacts. Through Grace, I found the florist, transportation for the my guests, and the location of the rehearsal dinner. She also re-negotiated fees with the caterer. She was loved by my husband and me, as well as our wedding party and familes - all of whom came infrom out of town. Grace made sure our wedding day was everything we had imagined and made sure everything went smoothly.
