I got married at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco and my reception was across the street at the St. Francis Yacht Club. I needed help with planning since I lived out of state with a busy full time job. I also didn't want to spend all my free time researching vendors. After getting quotes from different planners, I realized there is a huge budget range for planning and services offered. I chose Robin because she seemed the most experienced from the tons of glowing reviews and many years in the industry, and she was within my budget for partial planning. When I met her for consultation, she was very warm, really friendly and so supportive of all my ideas. She asked lots of questions about details I had never thought about which reassured me I had chosen the right planner.

I spent a year leaning on Robin for everything, and she was professional perfection - she always responded to my emails quickly with great advice. When deciding on vendors, she would email me 3 recommendations for each category with different budgets and personalities she felt would work well with mine. I spent minimal time researching each vendor and got to use her industry discounts! I would HIGHLY recommend Robin to anyone who doesn't want to spend every free second Pinteresting and stressing out over every last detail. I really only felt stressed the last 2 weeks before the wedding, which was all because I knew Robin was there for me. On the day of, everything went smoothly and she helped keep things on track - once I arrived for the ceremony, I did not spend 1 moment thinking about details or schedule etc. All my guests were so impressed with my wedding and compliments kept coming in all night about how amazing everything was! Thank you so much Robin!!

I am very fortunate to have known Robin my entire life and lucky for me, because she is an amazing wedding coordinator! Robin and my mom have known each other since high school and were sorority sisters at UCLA. The day I got engaged I knew that I would be in good hands with Robin as my wedding coordinator. I live in Southern California and was getting married in Northern California, in Livermore. Robin was very organized and connected us with the best vendor team that was within our budget. She kept us on track with our planning and created a detailed timeline that kept our wedding on schedule and stress free. She made it very personal by getting to know our bridal party and calmed my nerves as she sent me down the aisle! We received so many compliments from our guests about the attention to detail and the perfect timing of our wedding events. I can assure you that you are in good hands with Robin as your wedding coordinator, she will make sure your day is absolutely perfect!

When the mother of the bride says “Wow, I truly enjoyed my daughter’s wedding”…there is a notable and worthy reason. We had an amazing wedding planner who anticipated issues, asked questions, kept us on task, and connected us to some fabulous vendors! Robin and I have been lifelong friends and I truly did not understand what a wedding planner did before my daughter became engaged..... There are so many details that I would never have considered. Planning a wedding is no easy task! I have a full time demanding job, as does my daughter. Robin truly understood my daughter’s wishes for her wedding …she then connected us with the perfect team, handling the details, communicating with the vendors... and she created an incredible timeline ensuring the day went off without a hitch. Robin is respected by her peers and now I know why. She is a pro and knows how to read people, puts them at ease, makes great recommendations and understands the emotional roller coaster that a family experiences with a wedding. I cannot thank Robin enough…she stood by our side and gave me such peace of mind. I am grateful beyond words!

Robin knows what she is doing and she does so with professionalism and with many years of experience. She is very well-connected to the industry and is highly respected by her peers. My husband and I couldn't be happier that we chose Robin as our wedding planner. She offers thoughtful and practical ideas while paying mind to your wishes. Robin pays attention to detail...many of which I would not have considered had I planned on my own...and with that came a relaxed, organized team of professionals working together to pull off our favorite day of our lives! My personal experience of the flow of our wedding day was seamless...I'm sure unexpected things occurred...but we never knew because Robin took charge! Robin is very passionate about her career and her communication skills set her apart from other professionals in her field. She made sure that our belongings and special memorabilia made their way to us by the end of the evening...she even mailed some of our wedding favor tags after the event that she saved, which meant so much to me because my sister designed them. We went with her vendor recommendations for our photographer and videographer and could not have been happier with them! Know that you are in very good hands with Robin!

Planning a wedding from across the country with a very busy work schedule was made possible by working with Robin and Make It Happen! I was able to tell her from our first conversation when I would be the busiest, and she made sure that all of the wedding details were arranged within those deadlines. Our florist surprised us with the fact that she would not be able to be there for our wedding, and Robin was able to find us a great alternative with similar design and cost. She was very responsive to my many phone calls and emails throughout the process. Since the wedding would take place at the Stanford Memorial Church followed by a reception at the Westin St. Francis in San Francisco, there were many logistical challenges that Robin smoothed out. She even worked with my mother to address her concerns and questions. She kept me on track and was available to meet when my fiancé and I were in town. The timeline she created made sure that information was communicated to all of the vendors, so that everyone knew where to be and when. The day of the wedding, she handled everything making sure that Kenny and I enjoyed this amazing day… from start to finish, we were so happy with Robin and would highly recommend her to other busy couples! Our wedding day was fantastic!

I was apprehensive about the idea of a wedding planner as my wife and I were on a budget, but hiring Make It Happen turned out to be one of best decisions we made. It hard to fully comprehend how many little decisions are needed to plan a wedding, and Robin made the process seamless. She directed us to incredible vendors and helped ask the questions we wouldn't think to ask when negotiating contracts. Our actual wedding day went so smoothly, I cant stress enough the importance of having a coordinator who can stay level headed and move the day along. Robin made sure we were where we needed to be, but it never felt like there was any extra pressure or stress. Robin and Make It Happen were such an invaluable asset to our day, I highly recommend them for facilitating and actualizing your big day!

Robin was wonderful from start to finish. She was extremely helpful in orchestrating our wedding and bringing our vision to fruition. She helped us book the St. Francis hotel as our venue and since we were planning our wedding from another city she was happy to accommodate our tight scheduled trips to SF. Robin coordinated all of our walk throughs, negotiated pricing, worked with our vendors and reviewed contracts. Our special day would not have been the same without her help! We made the right decision hiring Make It Happen! and would recommend Robin's services to anyone looking for a wedding planner!

You can definitely pull a wedding off without Robin...but why would you ever want to?!
Robin responded to my inquiry within hours. She agreed to work with me a month before my wedding even though she normally does full wedding coordinations. She is so sweet, experienced and very professional. She created a time line and coordinated with all my vendors to make sure they were on the same page. She did the set up and break down of the decorations.
She is in continuous communication with you all the way up until the big day.
I can't tell you how many people told me How great Robin was the day of the wedding. Everything could not have gone more perfect. We were all able to sit back and enjoy the day and party the night away. Robin took care of everything and ensured we stayed on schedule. Even my husband noticed how much less stressed I was after we hired her.
If anyone is unsure whether they should make the leap or room in their budget for Robin, trust me, you should. I truly believe the days leading up to my wedding and the day of would have been total madness without her. Instead I was calm and excited. I was so surprised I wasn't freaking out like everyone told me they were. We are so grateful for that. Remember your wedding is your day, the day for the two of you. All the rest...leave it to Robin and she will Make it Happen!
