Karma Goddess is a boutique event planning & florwer design company serving Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties.We specialize in making unique and personalized events

Vanessa started this company in 2003 in Los Angeles after realizing that there were not a lot of companies that could execute her vision within her budget. She decided then and there to create a company where a client could come to us for one aspect of planning their event to conceptualizing and executing the total vision of the clients.

We offer the following three levels of coordination:

Level 1: There is No Such Thing As Day-Of Planning Package: This package is our definition of what a basic planning package should be. Planning or executing and event in this case, takes a lot of prep work by our team to ensure that your event seems, well seamless. And that is whjy we created a "Day-Of' package with a little added kick.


Level 2: The Stepping Up Package is for the client that needs help planning, maybe not the whole thing, only parts of it or likes to still be the point person with the vendors.

This is a package where we lend our expertise in the field to the clients, aid them in their vendor selections, manage the check list so that list gets smaller and smaller and ensure that you, the client, enjoys this amazing time in your life.



Level 3: Total Take Over sounds scary but in essence we take care of everything. We hold your hand during the entire process of planning your event.

We are your guardians of your event.

We work with you and understand completely what you want for your event.

We work closely with all of your vendors, negotiate with them so that you can focus on the fun stuff.

Because planning a wedding should be nothing but fun



Did you also know that Karma Goddess is also a full service floral company?

What does that mean you ask?

Well let me tell you.

Vanessa started in flowers, that is how she became so meticulous in her planning actually, she worked with some of the top florists in Los Angeles and when she moved out to Miami couldn’t find the right look for her clients that also matched their budgets. So what did she do, she opened a flower department within the company. Read less

Vanessa is a true class act. I worked with her for a solid year planning my wedding, and she was incredible every step of the way. She recommended EXCELLENT vendors and handled tough situations both in the months leading up to the wedding and on the big day. She answered all of my questions, kept me right on track and made sure that I didn't have to worry about a thing on my wedding day. Her calm nature was exactly what I needed - even when a guest showed up with a.. *ahem* .. date that was not previously disclosed (and I definitely freaked out considering we had no room at his table), she handled it with professionalism and absolute grace. I'm sure many more things went wrong that day, but I never knew about any of them! She's a fantastic wedding planner, and I will miss working with her.

I hired Vanessa as a day-of planner and she went beyond what I could have ever expected or hoped in a planner. I cannot express this enough. I got married last month in Ft. Lauderdale, however, I live in Chicago so naturally I was worried about coordinating everything from across the country. Since the very beginning, she made me feel calm, made sure I was "on track" with what I should be doing, etc. On the wedding day, she dealt with my husband's very large family, made sure everyone was where they were supposed to be/when, coordinated with vendors - and did this all with a ridiculously soothing voice. I never, ever, ever felt overwhelmed. Hiring her was literally the best decision I made .... maybe second best after picking my husband to marry... but its a close second :)

Karma Goodness is a great business who did a fantastic job on my wedding! I was so pleased with how my vision came to life! Vanessa really takes her time and listens to what her client wants! Everyone was in "AWH" of my flowers! They were perfect, so perfect it could go in a magazine! My bouquet was beautiful ! My wedding party loved theirs as well. The table at dinner/reception was just amazing! I would highly recommend this company to anyone! I cant stop thinking about how beautiful the flowers were and love looking at the all photos!
Thank you,

I can't say enough about how great Vanessa was to work with for our wedding weekend! We used her and her company for planing and flowers/decor. The flowers and decor were outstanding and more beautiful than I could have imagined! My bouquet was jsut BEAUTIFUL and exactly what I wanted! Vanessa helped me a couple months out from the wedding and then throughout the wedding weekend. She was always calm, collected and organized, which made me stress-free! Throughout the process she was always available via email and phone, and responded promptly. She was wonderful to work with and I can't thank her enough for making our day perfect!! I would definitely recommend her and her team!!

I used Vanessa and her company Karma Goddess for my florals and day of planner for my wedding last month. The reception venue was a blank canvas and after just one telephone conversation, Vanessa understood my vision and executed on it to perfection. Vanessa and her team transformed the venue in ways I couldn't imagine and everything ran smoothly from the beginning of the day until the end of our perfect day. I have Vanessa and her team to thank for making our wedding day the perfect day.

I will first start by saying, THANK GOODNESS for Karma Goddess Event Planning and Design. The single best decision I made during the wedding planning process was hiring Vanessa Oppo and her company to plan and design the biggest event of my life. My husband and I had a specific vision for our wedding, something that was classic yet modern, simple yet chic, luxury yet affordable! Not only did Vanessa execute my vision perfectly and made my wedding a dream come true, she handled all vendors magnificently and more importantly, kept me SANE! I truly enjoyed the pre-planning process with Vanessa, I actually miss her already, awaiting to receive an email or phone call. There was not a request that she wasn’t open to asking for, there was not a fire storm that she wasn’t prepared to put out. We held monthly conference calls in the evening with our parents and they all truly adored her. On the day of, I can’t tell you if anything went wrong, because she handled everything and refused to allow anyone to contact us for any questions or concerns. I completely felt cared for by her and her team. Through all obstacles and challenges she continued to be the voice of reason. Karma Goddess is based out of Florida but my husband and I live in the Washington DC metro area, and she handled us as if we were local. I know that I have probably sent her hundreds of emails, texts throughout the entire planning process but she responded back to all of them and right away, even if later in the evening. She had a true concept of open door policy. I never had to reach out to her, she always provided me with a week’s agenda and action items list to concur that week and month. She never worried me with details that she could handle on her own.

Karma Goddess comes with vendor recommendations and management, budget planning and management, and time management. Vanessa is a consummate professional and hardworking and deserves every bit of success thrown her way. Vanessa THANK YOU!

Vanessa was a joy to work with. She was so organized and put together and really helped me sort through the noise and giant, excessive to-do lists that can come with wedding planning. She is very grounded and not pushy at all and was overall just so wonderful. It was invaluable to not have to think about anything on the wedding day or even the whole week before, because i knew Vanessa had it taken care of.

It was wonderful and an absolute delight to work with Vanessa and her team at Karma Goddess for my wedding. I tend to get stressed easily and Vanessa has this natural approach to make people feel calm. From the moment we first met until the end of the wedding night, I felt at ease with Vanessa's professionalism, honesty and organization. It was so nice to know that I did not have to worry one bit the entire day and night of my wedding. I felt completely comfortable knowing Vanessa would take care of anything that came up and she helped in making this the happiest day of my life!

Working with Karma Goddess (Vanessa) was a pleasure. Planning a wedding is possibly the most high-stress event ever, and Vanessa was there to keep it all together. Her calming way of getting things done helped to keep me, and those that were a part of my wedding, calm. Any thing I asked for she looked into and gave me honest opinions when I wasn't sure how to navigate certain situations. Vanessa took my random spattering of ideas for this wedding and pulled them together to make it a weekend my husband I will never forget. The day of the wedding she and her team were invaluable and having her there just made me all that more relaxed. Working with Vanessa kept a high-stress situation from getting out of control and I was able to enjoy marrying my husband. I cannot say enough good things about Karma Goddess, they are the best!
