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

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!

It was such a delight working with Karma Goddess. From our first meeting till the time our wedding was over, she was professional, courteous and helped more than we ever could have imagined. She made sure everything ran smoothly and at no point did anyone even realize she was there. If we ever get married again (and I'm not sure why that would happen, but just for the sake of hypotheticals) I can assure you that I'd call Karma Goddess up in a heartbeat.

The best decision for our wedding was to hire Vanessa as our wedding planner! At first we didn’t think we would need one but what a blessing she was. We hired her for the day of planning, which involves planning from 2 months before the big day. It was a true pleasure to work with her! She is very knowledgeable of the industry and highly professional and creative. Every time we met with her we felt at ease. We also decided to hire her to do our wedding florals and décor. She knew exactly what we wanted but when we actually saw the finished product it exceeded our expectations! Our ballroom was exquisite! Everyone is still raving about it. It was wonderful to have her do both our planning and florals/décor! I highly recommend Vanessa even if you don’t think you’ll need a planner ;-) Thank you so much for making our wedding a dream come true V! Ele & Umbee

Vanessa Oppo, of Karma Goddess was amazing to work with! She listened to my visions and ideas and ran with it and produced beautifully creative and energetic wedding for me and my husband. She executed the floral decor and the chuppah exactly as I envisioned it and I still have friends gushing over the wedding almost a year later! She was invaluable as the day-of coordinator and took care of all the vendors and the overall progression of the wedding so my mom and I were able to be guests at the wedding. She has such great energy and a calm vibe and helped me and my husband have the best day of our life! I would highly recommend her for event planning and decor/floral for a wedding!

The service I received from Karma Goddess was exemplary. I am an artist and for me to have a vision and have someone else able to get it spot on and bring it to life is extremely rare. I cannot thank Vanessa enough for working magic on a wedding that was put together in 45 days! I am one of the hardest person to please plus I seldom write reviews but choosing Vanessa and her team will make your special day a fabulous event!

I can't say enough great things about Vanessa at Karma Goddess. Planning a wedding albeit a smallish size wedding (70 guests) can be daunting in Miami. Luckily I was able to have Karma Goddess as my wedding planner and everything went off smoothly. I didn't have to worry about anything on the day of my wedding or the weeks prior. My husband and I were able to enjoy our amazing day all because of Karma Goddess. I still have several guests who tell me how much they enjoyed our wedding and I really do owe it all it it to Vanessa.
It's taken me so long to write a review because life got busy and I have an almost one year old now, but I still have great fond memories of working with Vanessa, even though it was almost two years ago!!! ; )

Vanessa went above and beyond to make our wedding a special event. From suggesting the venue to designing the floral decor to executing the day of, she made our wedding day that much more special. We were fortunate to find her based on another wedding review and have nothing but praise for her. She made planning a wedding long distance easy and stress free. Our guests can't stop raving about what a wonderful time they had and neither can my husband and I! I highly recommend Vanessa and Karma Goddess. Vanessa is such a pleasure to work with.

We were fortunate to find her based on another wedding review and have nothing but praise for her. She made planning a wedding long distance easy and stress free. Our guests can't stop raving about what a wonderful time they had and neither can my husband and I! I highly recommend Vanessa and Karma Goddess. Vanessa is such a pleasure to work with. Read less

Vanessa Oppo is a floral genius! She must see thousands of brides but it certainly didn't feel like 'just another event' when we began to discuss ideas for floral arrangements, and decorations. Her passion for this business definitely shines throuh and wow does Vanessa have an eye for details. I would have never thought of using the colors she suggested or placing rhinestone cuffs around the bases of centerpieces which added that perfect touch of romance and glamour to the church and reception venues.

My only regret is not also hiring her as our wedding coordinator; however, my fiance and I were not aware that she provided such services at the time. We truly enjoyed working with Vanessa as she was not only patient, professional, and extremely organized but well connected with many of the highest rated vendors in South Florida.

I would recommend Karma Goddess to all brides who are looking for high quality and service!

We had decided on a destination wedding on the beach in Florida. Vanessa was recommended by the officiant that was performing our ceremony. Our vision was to have a simple beach wedding for about 20 people.

Vanessa made our day wonderful. From the initial meeting with her, she was very attentive and provided us with so many options to allow us to have the wedding we envisioned.

Our goal was to just show up. We did not want any of the stresses that go with planning a wedding. I am happy to say that Vanessa made that happen for us. She thought of everything down to providing a water station for the guests.

The ceremony turned out beautiful and exactly how we planned...simple and beautiful.

I would recommend Vanessa and her Karma Goddess staff.

I cannot say enough good words about Vanessa and her staff. I was referred to Karma Goddess by a co-worker and am so glad that I hired her to do the flowers for my wedding and day-of-coordination. She had multiple meetings with us to discuss the floral arrangements and all of the detalis. She took everything that I was imagining in my head and made it reality. She does amazing work and she beyond exceeded my expectations. Having her and her employee Jill coordinating the day of the wedding was so absolutely worth it. Everything went off without a flaw. If I could only recommend one vendor to hire for your wedding, it would be Karma Goddess. Thank you Vanessa!

Vanessa was a pleasure to work with throughout the planning process. She always returned my emails within a day, had suggestions, and I changed my mind a few times and was patient with me. All of the bouquets, centerpieces and flowers were GORGEOUS. Everyone complimented them and said how amazing everything looked. She completely understood my vision and it looked awesome. We used her for our table linens, chairs, and napkins too. They looked great. I highly highly recommend Vanessa.

I never in my life thought I would hire a wedding planner because I wanted to do it all myself. At the time of my wedding Karma Goddess offered "Day Of" packages so I decided to meet with them to see what it was all about. I am so glad I did. These ladies made my wedding day so pleasant and easy. I was actually able to enjoy myself and not worry about anything (and the bonus for me was that I still got to plan my wedding). They are so professional, personable, meticulous, and worth every penny! Someone told me it would be the best money spent, and they were right!

I absolutely could not have planned this wedding without Vanessa!! She took care of everything, helped me find my vendors, and didn't break a sweat when troubles arose. I felt completely comfortable with her from day one due to her calm, cool, and collected personality. She is very professional. On the day of the wedding she was there for over 12 hours doing everything! I can honestly say that my wedding was perfect because of her! I cannot recommend her enough!

Vanessa was absolutely amazing. She was super organized, super responsive and super helpful the day of. She helped my mom with her bustle of her dress, helped me when my dress tore and a drink was spilled on it, helped organize the ceremony, did the wedding day timeline and was the person I went for everything during my wedding. She took everything I gave to her that needed to be at the wedding and made sure it was all in the right place. She collected all the gifts and items that were used during the wedding that I wanted back. It was such a great decision to use Vanessa and I'd recommend her to anyone!

I hired Vanessa initially as my wedding planner but also contracted her to do my flowers. I can't put into words how grateful I am for her. My wedding was almost a disaster - literally. I was originally going to be married at the Breakwater on South Beach. However, after 10 months of struggling, compromising and being dealt blow after blow with that venue - the one that sealed the deal was 3 weeks prior to my wedding Vanessa informed me that Ocean Drive and it's adjacent roads would be shut down due to an event South Beach was having. Seriously? The Breakwater neglected to inform me of information that would prevent my vendors and guests from arriving to the event. Vanessa found out because she and her staff called Miami Beach to hire police officers to secure my venue due to the event they only told us about 1 week earlier. Had she not been calling to hire security, we would have never known. To make matters worse, I had a flight the following morning to Vegas for my Bachelorette so I was not exactly in a celebratory mood. Vanessa told me she would make it work out and she did.

The next morning before I left for Vegas, Vanessa held an emergency meeting with the Breakwater and asked me to come check out a new venue called The Bath Club after her meeting. To my utter surprise, she got all my money back from the Breakwater, and she found a venue that is out of this world for me to have my wedding. I felt surreal walking into that place thinking, 'Is this really happening?' the whole time. The Bath Club exceeded my expectations - I truly felt like it was an episode of "My Fair Wedding with David Tuttera" and that I had a magical transformation.

On the day of the wedding, when I walked into the ballroom (before it was even done) I almost cried because this almost didn't happen. The flower arrangements were out of this world. I wanted something different, modern, enchanted and she delivered that and more. I wish I could have kept them forever. I can never thank Vanessa enough for what she did. She is professional, creative and, most importantly, concerned - she cares about you and wants YOU to have the most amazing day possible.

I always had faith in Vanessa and her abilities. I know that even if we had to do it at Breakwater, it would have been great because she was organizing everything. But I believe it was fate that I chose her, because everything worked out for the better.

Ultimately, Vanessa was my Fairy Godmother (except way younger and prettier) and my friend :)

She has packages to suit all your needs - even if you planned everything - it is always nice to have someone there to take care of anything in case there are problems. Vanessa is definitely your "go-to" girl!

Karma goddess provided every care and detail possible to make our wedding perfect. Vanessa is fabulous and I would hire her again in a heart beat! My husband and I were so pleased with her work and dedication to us. Not only did she plan our wedding but our decor and flowers too which were gorgeous. Thanks to her fabulous planning we were actually ahead of schedule with everything and the night went on without a single hitch. She knows what she's doing and helped me feel at ease with everything, especially since I was planning the wedding from out of town. She went above and beyond as we hired her under the middle package which is not complete planning but more than day-of-coordination, yet she did more than expected! My husband and I were both very happy with the service and cost.
