I posted this on the knot and yelp but as someone who recently got married - online reviews played such an important part in my finding vendors.
And because I had such an incredible experience with Giseli, I truly feel the need to make sure that people now how amazing she is:
Giseli was our last major vendor that we booked. We got married at the Santa Barbara mission and they did not allow an outside planner but we knew that we needed someone to help us for the evening/reception/
Giseli was our ace in the hole/the best vendor decision that we made for our wedding. Amazing, spectacular, and incredible do not even begin to cover how incredible she was.
She was organized, had great referrals, a keen eye for detail, and helped us to manage all of our other vendors, the timeline, and all of the small meaningful details of the day.
We are SO grateful and lucky to have found Giseli. Really and truly - if you need a planner - she is it! Warm, kind, professional, a pleasure to work with, and really and truly - the best.
I am, and as soon as I met with her, have been the BIGGEST fan of Giseli.
I lack the eloquence to truly express my gratitude and appreciation - but she was INCREDIBLE.
I usually don't write reviews but reviews played such an important role in my booking of vendors (and believe me when I tell you how thorough my research was - I looked at probably 100 planners) - so if you are on the fence or are still looking for someone ... Do yourself a favor and get in touch with Giseli.
Our wedding day was that much more magical and special because of her.
We are forever grateful and indebted to her AMAZING services.

We couldn't have asked for more in a wedding planner! When we had our first meeting Giseli was warm, friendly and organized, bringing up important details that I had not yet thought of. Prior to our wedding, she answered questions that came up for me via email and phone. She was always prompt with responses and helpful. During the rehearsal and wedding she was direct, attentive to every element, and ensured that everything ran smoothly and seamlessly. Giseli anticipated every important detail during the event, so we could relax and have fun. I highly recommend her for a wedding planner!

We live in Miami, FL and were getting married in Santa Barbara, CA. We chose Giseli to be our day of coordinator and it was the best wedding decision! It is well worth including her services in your wedding budget. We were only able to go to Santa Barbara in December prior to our wedding. Giseli met us at the venue and gave us useful suggestions. She is very personable and we felt comfortable with her right away. I was rushing around that week trying to decide on vendors and she gave me a lot of recommendations. It was more convenient for me to e-mail her (because of the difference in time zones) and she responded promptly to every e-mail. She is on the ball! She was on top of my deadlines for the different vendors and reminded me to do certain things. We had difficulty connecting with our DJ and she was able to contact him and discuss the details – a big relief! She met us at the venue a few days prior to go over last minute details, which gave me peace of mind. She even walked out to the beach with us and suggested photo shoot locations. Our minister was not there the day of the rehearsal but Giseli organized us. Some of our bridal party were late arriving from the airport but she was so patient and stayed until we knew what we were doing. The day of the wedding she went to the ceremony and reception locations making sure everyone was on time and set up was done properly. She came to the hotel early to see what I needed and was my liaison with the limo. During the reception we had a specific timeline and Giseli was actually helping the catering staff serve food! She decorated the cake table too! The reception flowed so smoothly because of her! She stayed until the very end to make sure everything was cleaned up as required. Giseli is very easy to talk to and a sweet person yet authoritative and able to organize the vendors – it took a lot of pressure off us. I can’t thank her enough for everything she did!

We hired Giselle as our day-of-coordinator in Santa Barbara. My only regret is that we didn't hire her sooner for full event planning. We had a pretty complicated wedding with 2 ceremonies (American and Persian). Everything felt like a hot mess but Giselle helped keep us organized and asked us the questions that we didn't even think to consider. She was very professional and responsive throughout the process. She always had detailed notes and a thorough time line. She worked well with all of our vendors, and she has much experience working with many SB vendors in the past. She is also very lovely and easy to get along with. She brought an assitant on the day of our wedding and had a wireless communication system to be in contact with them throughout the day, which was great!

I can't recommend Giselle enough. For the work and professionalism she offers, she is well worth the money! One of the more affordable wedding planners in the area, and does a great job!

Giseli was AMAZING!!! She was very professional! It was so easy to contact Giseli whenever I needed her. She gave great advice and did an awesome job getting in contact with all of my vendors. Every time she met with me, I noticed that she had organized notes with copies of everything we spoke about. I cannot thank Giseli enough for all that she did for me on my wedding day. We loved her work the day of the wedding. Giseli and her assistant were on top of everything and made sure that I did not have to worry about anything. She was reasonably priced ....even with her assistant. Again, I cannot express how thankful I am to have found and hired Giseli....she was GREAT!!!

Giseli Spera (of Immaginare Events) is an excellent wedding planner: smart, calm, thorough, responsive, and professional. We employed her as a day-of coordinator, but she let us call and email her as much as we needed, which was enormously helpful and comforting. Several weeks in advance, she provided us with a detailed schedule of what would happen on the week of the wedding. She also communicated with our other vendors - the caterer, the photographer, the baker, the ceremony musician, the DJ, and even the taxi company - so that on the day of the wedding, all of them worked seamlessly as a team. The ceremony and the reception went more smoothly than we could have hoped. It was a lovely evening, and we have Giseli to thank for the opportunity to sit back and simply enjoy it. We couldn't recommend her services highly enough!

Hiring Giseli as our wedding coordinator was the best money spent for our wedding. Giseli is so professional and sweet and just an absolute pleasure to work with. Having never planned a wedding before, she helped us with all the little details we overlooked, kept us on our timeline and coordinated effectively with all the vendors.

I can't recommend Giseli enough, she will make sure your wedding day is smooth and stress-free!

Hiring Giseli to plan our wedding was the best decision that my husband and I made, especially since we planned the whole thing in three months. Giseli helped us to find the perfect venue and vendors. She would return my questions about wedding etiquette and advice in a prompt manner. The day of the wedding Giseli really shined. We did not have to worry about anything as she made sure to tell us what to do and when to do it. She put together a day of timeline and made sure all the vendors and bridal party followed it. Giseli made everything so easy and was on top of everything. Guests commented on how smoothly the day ran and it was thanks to her. I really appreciated her calm and positive energy throughout the day. My wedding was perfect, it was everything I hoped for and more, and I attribute a lot of that to Giseli. I would recommend her without hesitation.

Giseli was professional, courteous and friendly from our first contact. Having her planning our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. She was on top of everything: vendors we needed, who had or hadn’t been paid, track the budget during the planning process. I don’t know what we would have done without her. It was an enormous success, everything went smoothly. I can’t thank her enough. She made everything very easy for me and my wife. Our wedding came together in just a couple of months and everything turned out perfect! Giseli is great at what she does and you can tell that she really likes helping people plan their perfect wedding. Anybody that is getting married should use her company and they will be very happy with the results.

Giseli was extremely professional and wonderful to work with! She managed all of the details on the day of our wedding BEAUTIFULLY and made everything go so smoothly. No glitches at all! She was so well prepared and thought of the little things (she even thought to bring plates of food to my husband and me, since we didn't have time to get it ourselves). She was gracious, calm, organized, and worked very well with our church and all of the vendors. I am SO thankful we had her! It was wonderful to know that everything was in good hands and we could just enjoy the day :) I couldn't recommend her more highly!
