Claudia Hoste transformed my small, "simple" wedding into a breathtaking experience for all.
After speaking with Claudia over the phone, she personalized a service contract to fulfill my specific needs. She took her time to get to know my fiancee and me, meeting us in person early in the process to get a feel for our personalities and what we both wanted for the day. She was open to some of our nontraditional ideas and used her experience and creativity to incorporate them into our wedding celebration. She introduced some great ideas of her own; like having a special movie experience for our younger guests that allowed parents to enjoy adult time while making it a memorable night for the kids. Claudia took our broad vision and incorporated it so beautifully into the decor and floral design. She worked directly with our florist, pastry chef, and catering manager to create a truly exquisite experience for our guests. The day of, she was so patient. She was behind the scenes ensuring that everything came off perfectly. A personal touch was everywhere, from the amazing ombre floral designs, to the gorgeous table settings, to the personalized petit fours on our dessert table. Her work was exceptional. I highly recommend Hoste Events!

Hiring Claudia was the single best decision I made during me wedding planning (and probably one of the top decisions I've made in my life). From the day we first talked to her, until we left our wedding reception, she was an absolute gem to deal with, going above and beyond the call of duty to make sure everything was perfect. We live in Washington DC, and planning from 3000 miles away poses a number of challenges- especially when you aren't from the area you are getting married. Claudia helped us get in touch with the best vendors, helped negotiate deals, and even met with our vendors multiple times on our behalf.

On the day of our ceremony, I count myself to be blessed to be one of the few brides I know who truly got to have fun at her wedding- Claudia and her assistant coordinated everything just perfectly, and I never had to worry about timelines or anything going awry- I just got to catch up with friends and family and dance :) Not to mention, her sense of aesthetics is AMAZING- our reception looked like a spread in a magazine, and she translated my vaguely defined vision for a "Hemingway garden party" perfectly. Do yourself a favor- hire Claudia today!

Claudia of Hoste Events is phenomenal - we are so glad we found her!

We were planning our wedding in California from Washington, DC and were really nervous about planning transcontinentally. We read Claudia's reviews, saw some of the weddings she had recently planned and met with her a couple times. We did the same research/process with about seven other planners. Claudia was the best in the business: she connected with us, shared our vision, and had wonderful taste. I would also like to add that Claudia is one of the most patient, thoughtful, and savvy folks I've had the pleasure of working with.

If you're planning a special event - pray that Claudia is available! She is that good.

Claudia was a pleasure to work with! I was a bit nervous about planning my wedding from out of state, but Claudia was so knowledgeable and resourceful with every aspect of wedding planning that she made the process fun and enjoyable! She had so many great recommendations, was always available to answer the many questions I had and really worked her magic on the day of my wedding. Everything went so smoothly and I couldn't have done it without her help! I definitely recommend Claudia for wedding planning or any type of event planning.

Dear Claudia,

I just want to thank you for all the work you did to create the perfect wedding day for Christy and Morgan.
I was in awe of your brilliant orchestrating and attention to every detail. You made this day flow flawlessly. We didn't have to be concerned about one thing.
You are meticulous in your organization and we owe you a huge 'thank you" for directing us and keeping us on schedule--to the minute. You took care of everything, and I know your watchful eye was constantly making sure everything was carried out to the highest level of excellence.
You are a true professional, and we want to give you our highest recommendation. My husband and I have been singing your praises.
Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. This is a day none of us will every forget.
With warmest regards,
Dr. and Mrs. Andrew Pallos (parents of the bride)

Claudia Hoste is simply superb. She was remarkably easy to work with, for us and for the other vendors involved in planning and holding our wedding. She has the ability to blend multiple inputs from the venue and a variety of vendors into a single, harmonious plan that left everyone involved more than pleased. Her detailed knowledge of our venue was invaluable, but I believe her energy, enthusiasm and commitment to excellence would make any venue work. On our wedding day, Claudia orchestrated everything flawlessly and did so with a soft touch, almost without being seen or heard. She made several recommendations that proved to be pivotal to the success of our wedding - decisions that elevated our event from outstanding to perfect. We walked away from our special day saying that we would not have changed a single thing. We highly recommend Claudia and her team to anyone for any occasion.

Claudia Hoste is simply superb. She was remarkably easy to work with, for us and for the other vendors involved in planning and holding our wedding. She has the ability to blend multiple inputs from the venue and a variety of vendors into a single, harmonious plan that left everyone involved more than pleased. Her detailed knowledge of our venue was invaluable, but I believe her energy, enthusiasm and commitment to excellence would make any venue work. On our wedding day, Claudia orchestrated everything flawlessly and did so with a soft touch, almost without being seen or heard.

Claudia was absolutely wonderful!
We got married at Ojai Valley Inn and Spa in Ojai, CA. It was beautiful:)
Claudia helped everything run flawlessly on wedding weekend. Everything was taken care of. My mom and I didn't feel any stress on the wedding day.

My husband and I had a great time visiting with Claudia as well before the big weekend. We got along great, and she understood exactly what our vision was. She had great connections with vendors and was able to lead us in the right direction.

We are soo thankful to have had such a wonderful experience and would like to do it all again:)!!
