We had Dawn Steel for our "month of wedding coordination" and she did well beyond what we expected!! She was very flexible and I don't remember how many emails and texts we exchanged. She also provided some vendors at the very last minute (because we couldn't get a hold of some vendors by ourselves) and we were so glad we had her for our wedding!!
Dawn was also our florist and she did an amazing job!! She was present at our ceremony/reception the whole time and was lighting up the candles and moving flowers around and everything!! And Dawn's assistant Maryssa was very helpful, and fun to talk to! Maryssa was also helping out with our wedding photo session even though it probably wasn't her job.
Hannah Smith Events is lucky to have both Dawn and Maryssa and you would be too!

The day of she was so helpful with all the vendors and it felt so great not to worry about all the details because I knew Dawn had everything under control. I would definitely recommend her!!

I hired Dawn from Hannah Smith Events for my wedding and she was absolutely amazing! I knew within the first couple of minutes of sitting down with her for an interview I wanted her as our month of coordinator. She was professional, easy to talk to and completely understood my vision. Any questions I had or if I needed help with anything, she was quick to respond and willing to help. She gave me great vendor referrals, which we ended up using a lot of them for our wedding. Dawn is truly amazing and I could not have planned this wedding without her. She was so organized and helped me finalize all the details leading up to the wedding. On the wedding day, she was the first to arrive and last to leave. My wedding day was absolutely perfect and ran so smoothly because of Dawn. I never stressed one time because she handled everything for me. I have received so many wonderful compliments from our guests about how beautiful the wedding was and I have to give a lot of the credit to Dawn for making it all happen! I am truly grateful that I hired Dawn and would highly recommend her as a wedding planner.

Hannah, Dawn, and Sarah were amazing! A week before our wedding we found out that we couldn't use a portion of the site we had purchased a permit for, for our sit down dinner. Hannah Dawn, and Sarah were on top of it immediately and came up with a couple alternatives for us to pick from and how they could make it even better than our original plan. They were really great at communicating with both myself and my now husband, as well as working with the city in charge of the permit on our behalf. The set up and break down for our event was speedy and our friends and family still talk about how beautiful everything was, especially since it was on a budget! Dawn also took care of designing and creating my bouquet and it was better than most of the ones I saw in magazines. If you need great coordinators that will work with whatever you can imagine, Hannah Smith Events is the way to go!

Hannah is amazing! I needed a wedding planner who would help me navigate the hell that is wedding planning. I had all these crazy ideas like buying the flowers from a Farmer's Market the day of the event and switching my table assignment from rows to tables 2 hours before the ceremony. Hannah hones the crazy, irrational, emotional bride in and handles business.

Not only does she help finalize all the details of the event from timelines to loading up cars at the end of the night, she acts as a medium for family members who may otherwise kill one another. That is priceless!

I can say that my wedding day went off without a hitch and I owe it to the grace, patience and professionalism of Hannah.

Normally I don't write reviews, but I just had to share my thoughts and feelings regarding Hannah and the amazing job she did. At first, we were looking to plan the wedding ourselves but after getting stuck regarding the color scheme and decorations, we decided to enlist Hannah's help. She was able to take the vision in my wife's head and make it come to life. Everything from the chairs, napkins, linen, lights, flowers, etc. was just amazing. She was key as a resource and helped us find the perfect DJ and florist which only added to the fantastic ambience. She was there for us every step of the way. Even when she had a previous engagement, she still made the time and effort to be there for us when we met with our catering company. Best thing of all was that she took care of everything (and I mean everything, we even had a little snafu with our marriage certificate which she was able to resolve) during our wedding which meant that all we had to do was enjoy the day. My wife and I would definitely recommend Hannah to anyone looking for an amazing wedding coordinator.

Where do I start?! I decided to plan a wedding in 5 months and knew I needed a wedding planner since I lived in the bay area but my wedding was going to be in SD. I searched dozens of sites and read countless reviews. After narrowing down to a handful of coordinators I called Hannah Smith Events.

Hannah was the first planner I spoke to and after our initial conversation I felt really good about her (call it a woman's intuition?! lol) She was warm, smart and was very confident she could pull this off & on top of that her rate was very competitive!

Of course my fiance wasn't going to let me hire the first person I talked to but I knew all along it would be Hannah. I did my due diligence and spoke to a few other wedding planners and I just didn't get the same feeling and some were either priced way too high or a bit low which made me nervous.

I ended up hiring Hannah for my Aug 10th wedding to handle my entire wedding planning and she immediately got to work. I am a very picky person and very much into every little detail. Hannah took it in stride - she didn't mind the countless emails, texts & phone calls. My wedding came out even better than I could have ever dreamed! She knows so many vendors (many family run or small businesses which I loved) and provided me with multiple options for most things.

I hate long reviews but Hannah was just so incredibly professional, sweet, creative, and the list goes on & on. If you are looking for a wedding planner in the San Diego area you will not regret hiring Hannah and her team. No way could I have pulled off the wedding I had without her!!

We hired Hannah for month-of coordination. It was SO helpful having someone else that would contact your vendors in the weeks leading up to the wedding and she always got answers ASAP and never complained or made us feel crazy when we asked more and more questions...Our wedding day would NOT have been anything close to as wonderful as it was without Hannah!! We literally worried about NOTHING the day of. She was always one step ahead and had everything thought through before it even came to our mind. She coordinated all of our vendors not only at the sites, but also made sure everyone knew what was going on between the photographer, videographer, limo driver, AND the set up of the ceremony and reception/cocktail hour, which was even more complicated than a lot of weddings in that the ceremony and reception were in different places AND neither of them were where we stayed and got ready day of (i.e. where the photog and videog had to go). She had everything we needed, knew how to pin and fix my hair as the night went on, had an emergency kit handy for whatever we needed, and stayed all the way til the very end to make sure nothing was left and everything was cared for. I cringe at the thought of what our wedding would've been like had we not had Hannah, and I can't thank her enough. You were amazing Hannah!!! Thank you SO much :)

we met with Hannah 7- 8 months before our wedding date and we wanted to hire her on the spot because within that first meeting we felt instantly comfortable with her. Couple of months later when we were ready to hire Hannah for month of wedding services she was not available but Laura was. WE LOVED HER!!!! From our first meeting all the way through till the last dance on the wedding day she was GREAT! I would recommend her to anyone needing an energetic, organized and professional coordinator full of great DIY ideas. She was a wedding life saver. If anything went wrong we had NO idea, but I have a feeling she was so johnny on the spot ahead of time that there wasn't anything big that she had to deal with.

THANKS A MILLION LAURA!!!!

We hired Laura of Hannah Smith Events for month-of coordination for our wedding last month and were so happy we did! I nearly went without a coordinator due to budget, but Hannah's packages are so reasonable, and worth every penny for the stress relief Laura provides! From our first phone call I felt confident in her level of experience and knowledge, and she was incredibly kind and easy to talk to. I was panicked about keeping track of all the little details in our very DIY wedding, and Laura helped by providing a thorough to do list so nothing was missed. Even when our venue threw a few wrenches in our plans by changing our set up hours and leaving a port-a-potty right outside our buffet set up (!), Laura jumped to resolve both issues and made sure that my husband and I didn't have to give it a second thought. On the day of our wedding, I couldn't have been more relaxed about the vendors delivering on their promises, on the final touches of the set up looking perfect, and on the flow of the day going according to plan--all because of Laura's attention to detail and dedication to her clients. I cannot recommend Laura and Hannah Smith Events enough!

I got married in 90 DAYS. I thought no big deal, i'm an easy bride..just throw together a place, food, flowers, and a dress and we are good to go.

There is SO much more and I had no idea what I was doing.
Hannah saved my life and did the entire wedding.

I made all the fun choices and did NONE of the negotiating prices or calling vendors.

When I hear someone is getting Married the first thing I advise is to get a wedding coordinator, and make sure it's a good one through reviews and stuff.

Good luck, Happy Wedding, & call Hannah:)

Hannah saved my life and did the entire wedding.

I made all the fun choices and did NONE of the negotiating prices or calling vendors.

When I hear someone is getting Married the first thing I advise is to get a wedding coordinator, and make sure it's a good one through reviews and stuff.

Good luck, Happy Wedding, & call Hannah:) Read less

Hannah was WONDERFUL! She has all the qualities I would expect of a planner… professional, punctual, upbeat, creative, organized, and fun to work with. I hired Hannah for day of service. We met once prior at the venue to do a walk through and discuss all the details. She ran our rehearsal the day prior and every one had a great time. Day of, I didn't worry about a single thing. Everything ran seamlessly. She took care of everything. All of my DIY projects were displayed beautifully and set up BETTER than I had imagined. We also hired her husband to run our "shuttle" and it worked out perfectly. They hired us a 12 passenger van for us and he was making pick ups and drop off's all day. It was a complete lifesaver. We never had to worry about how anyone was getting from point A to B and then over to C and back to A again. I am so thankful that I found Hannah, I can't imagine that my day would have been as easy as it was without her. THANK YOU!!!

Hannah and Laura were the coordinators at my wedding recently in San Diego and were beyond amazing!! They did a fantastic job from start to finish. Even with a very last-minute change in plans, they were professional and handled all our vendors and guests extremely well.

I would DEFINITELY recommend Hannah and Laura for your event!! They were worth every penny (and then some!). Thanks guys!

We hired Hannah and Sarah to be our month of/ day of wedding coordinators...which turned out to be a GREAT choice. Leading up to our wedding day Hannah was on top of everything and was SO HELPFUL. She had great ideas and really knows what she is doing! Sarah was our day of coordinator and I can't tell you how great it was to have her there. She took care of every little thing and truly made our day perfect! I would recommend Hannah and Sarah to any bride out there!

We used Hannah Smith Events as our wedding coordinator for our wedding on May 20, 2012. From the moment we met her, Hannah was professional, personable and assuring. She was by far the best vendor we worked with. I work in corporate event planning and I have seen some terrible planners. Hannah is definitely one of the best and so affordable. No matter what your budget is, you should hire her. You will be so happy you did when you have a blissful, stress free wedding day due to Hannah's efficiency. :)

Hannah was amazing. My husband and I married 4/28/12 and we hired her for a month of coordination. We are do-it-yourselfers, but had we known of her services sooner, we would have hired her to plan our entire wedding. She is very professional and polite, but can take charge as needed....she is the perfect blend and definitely someone you want to work with.

If you are worried about cost, with her preferred vendors, she can save you money which in turn pays for her services. We had interviewed several vendors on our own for flowers and photography around the time we hired her. Since we hadn't made a decision, she recommended two of her vendors. We interviewed them and ended up hiring them. She ended up saving us about $2,000 and we were happy with both.

Our families can't stop raving about her and how on top of things she was. Even our caterer mentioned how much he loved working with her too. If we have another large event in the future, we'll most def hire her.

Since we were new to planning and figured things out on our own, we vowed to help the next couple. If we could recommend anything out of all the time we invested, HIRE HANNAH. With her, you can enjoy your wedding and trust that someone will be there to tie up all the loose ends and make sure things run smoothly.

One of the first things my new husband said to me after the ceremony (aside from, "I love you" and "we did it!") was, "Hiring Hannah was one of the best decisions we made. She's terrific." I could not have agreed more. We hired Hannah as a Day Of Coordinator and she did a fantastic job. We were initially reluctant to hire a coordinator, but we are so glad that we found Hannah.

Hannah was responsive over email and the telephone, providing her expertise all along the way. Once the weekend arrived, she made everything come together smoothly: She was assertive and direct, but also very warm. On our wedding day, she made sure all of the details were executed just right. I sent her a text message that morning with a list of things I knew needed to be done and her response was, "Yes, I will take care of all of this. See you soon." I smiled, relaxed, and really enjoyed the entire day. She did take care of everything and the celebration was wonderful.

It was such a relief and a treat to have someone ensure all the details for our wedding were taken care of so we did not have to during our celebration. Hannah did a really wonderful job and we were grateful to have her help. Thank you, Hannah!

We hired Hannah as our Day Of Coordinator for our March 2012 wedding. We actually hired Hannah over a year ago. I am a control freak, so I knew I wanted to do all the planning myself, but I also knew I wanted someone there the day of the wedding to make my vision come to life. Hannah was the PERFECT person for the job. She is extremely professional and made sure everything ran smoothly. She put mine and my Husband's (!!!!!!) needs before everyone's and made sure we were happy the entire evening. She went above and beyond when she took my sleeping nephew from my sister-in-law and watched him sleep while she ate her dinner! Everyone complemented us on her, and I truly could not have asked for more. She is worth WAY MORE than she charges!

Hannah and Sarah are awesome! We weren't sure whether to hire a wedding coordinator but decided to just a couple months before and so glad we did. Hannah immediately took charge...she and Sarah made sure every detail was covered--from coordinating vendors, space planning, rentals, and more. Hannah had wonderful suggestions/solutions and is a remarkable planner and organizer. She was already booked the day of our wedding so Sarah was our day of coordinator and she was AMAZING! She took care of every detail and everything ran so smoothly (or if not, she handled it well because we didn't even know!). Our guests had a wonderful time and my husband and I are so grateful to Hannah and Sarah for making the day so great and stress-free...I highly recommend them!

Of all the people I looked into for my wedding, Hannah was the utmost professional, caring and sweet down to earth person who got the job done right. She had an exquisite taste of how to make my day special and one of a kind, and more importantly one to be remembered. If anyone is looking for someone who has a wonderful and keen eye for detail, Hannah is the right person for you. It's the small things that I never thought of that Hannah was ontop of. She didin't let anything slip through the cracks, and she delivered above and beyond anything we would have ever imagined. Several of our guests even made great observations of the day, and I thank Hannah for that. I will absolutely recommend Hannah for anyone to use. I've said it several times to Hannah, THANK YOU SO SO SO MUCH, for doing such a phenomenal job on our special day. Words cannot express my husbands and my gratitude. We will be forever grateful.

I know nothing about weddings, or planning one at least. I called around and spoke with several people. I chose Hannah because, even over the phone, the feeling I got was she was genuinely interested in my concerns. I did not detect any frustration or irritation with my 'stupid' questions; which is a response I really like.
I wanted to do some planning via email and some planning in person. She was very accommodating and flexible around my crazy work schedule. I also felt self conscious and nervous since I knew little about the workings of a wedding. Hannah made both those sources of anxiety feel a lot less intimidating. She was very comforting and knowledgeable, and helped me determine what to focus on and when. Helpful! Can't thank you enough Hannah.
What I appreciated the most was how she took care of situations that came up. I had expressed that with my anxiety I would not be able to think if anything out of the ordinary came up, and to please help me. And she did, without being asked again! That's amazing to me in this day and age.
I knew I was pleased with my decision to hire Hannah after my family liked her. My pre-wedding fiancé/post wedding husband's mother was happy. WooHoo! My mother was happy-ish. But for her, that's a very good sign.
Anyway, thank you Hannah for helping me. I can't tell you how much I really appreciate everything. My wedding was beautiful!

Hannah helped us with our wedding long before she officially started her own business. It's no surprise that she chose to do this as a profession, as she is incredibly talented and such a sweetheart. One meeting with her and you will fall in love - she was made for doing weddings and events. With her strong production background and beautiful disposition, class, and personality, I would call Hannah FIRST to do any event I was planning. Hannah deserves my glowing recommendation and highest regards not only because she earned it, but because she deserves it! We love Hannah Smith!

Laura was AMAZING. My wife and I have no idea how we would have successfully planned or executed our wedding without her. We booked with her really early on in our process (about a year before our day), and it was a god send. She was able to use her expert judgment to refer us to vendors who perfectly matched our style and vision, and she gave us the best advice we could ever ask for. She also helped to explain some of our vendor contracts and was really great at helping us to explain our needs to our vendors.
My wife had a really specific vision for what she wanted our reception to look like, and Laura did a fantastic job of listening to the snippets of vision and helping us to articulate it for our vendors. I’m a project manager, and Laura was a huge help in scheduling and executing our program.
We knew from our first meeting that she was the perfect planner for us, and we were totally right. She answered all of our emails within a day, and took care of stuff for us in minutes that would have taken my wife and I days to resolve. She was always firm but respectful with our vendors and fantastically nice to us, our families, and our guests. Laura bent over backward to make our wedding happen just the way we planned. She’s just great.
