One thing you should know that I am a designer. I previously worked at Martha Stewart and I am crazy insane about details and aesthetics. Both my husband and I are based in NYC so not only were we unfamiliar with our options for all the vendors in the SB area, but we had to find someone that we could trust completely to help us plan our wedding without us being able to fly out to California every weekend.

Before we decided on Rebecca, we interviewed 4-5 different planners. Immediately loved Rebecca's calm demeanor. During the 8 month planning process both my husband and I were so thrilled we decided on Rebecca to plan our wedding. She's such a genuinely warm and kind person and is a pleasure to work with. You really feel like Rebecca is really on your side and gives you her honest opinion and is super on top of everything and extremely timely, never failing to respond very quickly and always on top of the numerous vendor followups we had to keep up with.

After a couple meetings with some visuals I provided she got exactly what I was envisioning for our wedding. All her vendor suggestions were in-line with my aesthetic. She even helped us quickly and calmly pull off many last minute ideas I had in my bridezilla panic.

The day of the wedding, everything was absolutely perfect. I didn't have a single thing to worry about and the event exceeded my expectations in every way. The visuals were stunning, the last minute adds were seamless, and the transition of the different event locations (ceremony to cocktail hour to dinner to dancing indoors) was seamless. I can't tell you how many guests that day came to say it was the best and most beautiful wedding they've ever been to. I have Rebecca to thank for that.

Unfortunately I have no sisters, or I'd definitely have Rebecca plan their weddings too. We will definitely have Rebecca plan my sister-in-laws wedding! (We first have to find her a man!)

If you're getting married in Ventura County or reside there and need a wedding coordinator, hire Rebecca. My husband and I were so pleased with all the vendors Rebecca helped us choose and her professionalism throughout the entire year leading up to our wedding. Rebecca gives you peace of mind with her responsiveness and due diligence on all of the vendors she works with. The best part was that it was always about what my husband and I wanted to make our wedding special, not her preferences or anyone else. The expectations are established at the very beginning of the planning process and Rebecca knocked it out of the ballpark.
