Having been a Wedding Sales Specialist in San Francisco since 2009, I worked at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel and the Westin St. Francis.

Over the years, I have worked with events in many venues and am familiar with most of the spaces in San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area.

Working with Robin was absolutely wonderful! Like many people, we were originally skeptics about whether we really needed a wedding planner or if we could do it all by ourselves. I must say... I AM SO RELIEVED THAT ROBIN WAS THERE! The event would have been a disaster if we had tried to do it on our own without her.

Robin is very experienced in all types of cultural weddings, which was great because we had a Filipino-Persian wedding. She was familiar with both culture's traditions and also managed the cultural quirkiness of both families really well.

We would highly recommend her!

Robin was a pleasure to work with and we are so lucky we could place our special event in her very capable hands. When our caterer decided to "retire" a month after signing our contract, Robin introduced us to the caterer we used- we still have guests telling us the food was the best (wedding) food they have ever had! She has a wealth of knowledge in working with vendors and making sure every last detail is covered. She also has a wealth of experience, yet is flexible to new ideas and plans.

Robin Lewis is one of the nicest, most patient people you will ever meet, and she will work tirelessly to make your wedding a success. Our guests have all told us that our wedding was one of the most unique and beautiful weddings they have ever been to, and Robin deserves much of the credit for helping us pull it together. Robin's work ethic is second to none, her fee is more than fair, she is easy to reach by phone and e-mail, she is an industry veteran, and she shields you from every last minute crisis so you can really enjoy your wedding day.

We had a picnic-themed Hindu-Jewish wedding on a private estate in San Jose. It was a logistically complicated affair with three rental companies, two caterers, a separate staffing company, and lots of DIY aspects. We had a comprehensive “month-of” contract with Robin, but she was really working with us throughout the planning process. Robin helped me identify possible vendors when I couldn’t find someone myself, reviewed every contract to make sure that the deposits, deadlines, and cancellation terms made sense, visited the venue and attended the food tasting with us, and sent out a detailed timeline to all the vendors a month before the big day to make sure every task had an owner assigned and that everything was in sync.

On our wedding day, our staffing company showed up without ice, which we had contracted with them to bring, and our caterer got a flat tire and was over two hours late. Robin stepped in and "made it happen" by essentially becoming a banquet manager and helping things get back on schedule while still managing the other aspects of the day. This is far in excess of her contract, but she did what was needed and was totally unfazed, shielding my wife and me from the chaos.

Most couples say their wedding day was a blur, but my wife and I have so many clear, happy memories of that day in large part because of Robin Lewis. Thank you, Robin, for making the happiest day of our lives even happier!

When we first got engaged, we figured we would save some money and do everything ourselves. Both Alex and I are professional wedding photographers ourselves, and I was a design major in college, so we had seen enough weddings as professionals that we thought we had some idea of how to put together a wedding by ourselves. First of all, we learned very quickly that doing it yourself is not actually cheaper. Second, even with all the experience in the world, there is absolutely no way that we could have managed to pull this wedding off without help.

We’d spoken with a few other planners, but from the moment we sat down with Robin, we had to have her plan our wedding. Robin is the nicest person - she’s incredible to work with. Robin took all of our design ideas into consideration and really pulled everything together. She contacted vendors, she coordinated planning, and she even did negotiation for us. We thought we couldn’t afford a live band - Robin found us an amazing one that fit our budget perfectly. A potential caterer tried to charge us several hundred dollars for a 1-person tasting after the tasting had already happened. Nope. Robin took care of it.

The wedding: Robin led our rehearsal the night before, then handled all the logistics the day-of, including everything from making sure our wedding favors were brought in on time to keeping guests at bay until we were done with family photos. Of the numerous weddings we’ve attended both as guests and professionals I can confidently say that our own wedding was the smoothest that we have ever been to.

We’re also currently students, in a completely different state, across the country. We would not have been able to manage all the coordination and planning on our own, yet Robin handled it without breaking a sweat. Robin made our lives easy. Robin is an incredible professional and friend, and we could not have been happier with what she did for us.

I had my wedding at the Westin St. Francis and was reading such wonderful reviews about the former wedding specialist, Robin. When I found out she was working as a wedding planner, I jumped on the opportunity. Not only did she has a great relationship with Lauren (current wedding specialist) but knew the ins and outs of the hotel. Robin is thoughtful, organized, and very patient. Even though I had a "month-of" contract, I could ask Robin questions anytime throughout the process, which was essential as I recently moved to the east coast. I was only able to come to SF a few times before the wedding and each time Robin met with me to discuss logistics and status. I really appreciated her ability to make time for me and adapt to my schedule. When we were deciding on florists, Robin assisted in providing direction and a realistic approach for moving floral arrangements between the St. Francis Suite and Victor's Palace. It was extremely beneficial to have someone there that has done this numerous times to provide tricks of the trade. The week of the wedding is when Robin came into full gear. I appreciated the fact that any feedback provided to her was taken not personally and she adapted to fit my needs. The timeline of the wedding was extremely important as we wanted to accomplish many things before the ceremony. Robin was in touch with all vendors and I had complete trust that each vendor would be there on time and professional. The rehearsal for the wedding was smooth and seamless because of Robin. The majority of my wedding party have not been in weddings before. Robin gave very clear, specific, and minimal direction for everyone to follow. She was assertive and organized which allowed for a quick rehearsal. Everyone left knowing exactly what was going on and what to do for the big day. On the day of the wedding Robin was calm and organized which helped me to be calm as well. I can't tell you how many complements I received. I've run out of space, but Robin is great!

5 stars aren't enough to express the spectacular performance given by Robin this past weekend.
Wedding day can be a high stress situation for the bride and groom. It can also be challenging for the wedding party. I was privileged to be the best man for this one as well as their Dj for the reception. Being presented with these two tasks did provide a big challenge and doubt in my mind as too how we could pull this off. Robin understanding my situation helped to create a stress free environment not only for the couple but for myself and everyone in the wedding party. Her attention to detail and her ability to stay 3 steps ahead made the day go smooth. She made their day as perfect as weddings go, I can only hope her schedule is free when it's my turn to tie the knot.

Robin makes your wedding dreams reality! My wedding went without a hitch with Robin. My husband and I were getting overwhelmed with the amount of fine details that needed to go into the day of the wedding and knowing that we could not do it alone. We didn't feel comfortable handing off tasks for the wedding to a handful of family/friend since we wanted everyone to just enjoy the wedding. We wanted One person to share our wedding expectations and to carry them out. We bit the bullet and decided to find a professional to execute our dream wedding. We did not expect Robin to be the ULTIMATE wedding coordinator. Even though she was our "day of wedding" coordinator she kept in the loop about every minor detail about the wedding before we even could think of it for weeks up to the wedding. She was easy to reach by email and phone and takes her job very seriously. She is the TRUE meaning of a professional and she really knows the business. We are upset we didn't hire her sooner!

My family and bridal party were blown away at how on top of everything Robin was. She is approachable and takes command when needed. I'm a bit of a control freak, but I had so much confidence in Robin that I was ready to let her take over. The best part is that she is such a joy to work with. She is calm and collected and knows the importance of helping couples enjoy the wedding planning process. She made wedding planning fun again. Save yourself the time .....hire Robin....she does not disappoint.

We contacted Robin at MakeItHappen about 2 months prior to our wedding, to assist us with coordinating all of the final details of our ceremony and reception in San Francisco. Her responsiveness and experience really sold us and she was worth every penny (don't worry - she's quite affordable compared to other wedding planners). Every email and call we placed to her was returned quickly and she never left us hanging. Our big day went smoothly with no surprises - Robin had it all covered. Hire her as your wedding coordinator - you won't be disappointed.

Without Make It Happen! our wedding would not have gone as smoothly as it did. Robin was the utmost professional and did not let anything phase her on our wedding day. We hired her for day of coordination including a rehearsal day and it was the best investment in my sanity and most importantly MY SANITY. She kept things moving according to timeline and I did not have to worry about anything on the day of my wedding. All I had to do was be where she would tell me to be and when. When it came time to move or get dressed, she would come over and let me know with a gentle nudge. She dealt beautifully with my Asian family and our ever evolving needs which included but weren't limited to knowing what time it was, when everyone was supposed to get dressed, where everyone was supposed to be, and where our gifts were. If I were to get married again or have another big event, Robin would be my first phone call. I could not have asked for someone more kind, caring and supportive throughout the last phase of organizing my wedding. Overall, I attribute the kind comments throughout the day from people saying to me "you are so calm and relaxed" all to Robin, she was the reason I had nothing to worry about. Hire Make It Happen! and it will happen!

Would definitely refer Robin to any of my friends and family. She made things go smooth and couldn't ask for a better person for the job. She knew who to ask, where to ask, when to ask….and kept my family and I on track.

What's not to love? She's simply the best.

Robin did a great job coordinating all of our vendors, our timeline, and was super available for all kinds of calls, last minute changes, and made sure all of our bases were covered.

Could not have done it without her! A+.

Robin Lewis is truly wonderful! She really “made it happen” for us when she planned our daytime reception. Since we had married earlier in the year in a private ceremony, my husband and I wanted a reception that was a little less formal and traditional than a typical evening wedding reception yet it couldn’t be way too out of the box since we wanted to make sure the event met the more traditional expectations of our families. Even a few weeks later, both of our mothers continue to rave about the party and my husband and I continue to hear from guests about the “mighty fine” party!
Robin delivered on all levels. Robin jumped in right away and was able to whittle the massive and overwhelming lists of venues, florists, and photographers down to a few that would be perfect to work with me. It was so much easier and less stressful to pick from a curated list of a few vendors that she had first hand, positive experiences working with in the past.
Throughout the process, I truly appreciated how communicative Robin was. It is amazing how that really reduced my stress levels. She’s excellent at letting you know her schedule and availability and so prompt with her replies and she was great at keeping on top of pesky details. She even jumped in when I was having trouble with my invitations. And she went way, way beyond expectations when she watched over my little furball so I could enjoy a dinner with my out of town guests.
Hiring Robin was the smartest decision I made because without her, this party really would never have happened and I’d still be miserable and stuck in the planning stage! My husband and I are truly grateful for all of her support in helping making our reception a memorable, beautiful, and stress-free event.

Robin is absolutely fantastic. Her passion and commitment to wedding planning is clear from the moment you meet her and shines throughout the planning process and day of.

We hired Robin to be our “month of” wedding coordinator, but she helped us much more than just that final month. She offered us vendor recommendations throughout the planning process and even contacted some vendors directly to get quotes for us. Robin came with us to our food tasting and helped to get us to schedule a second tasting when we wanted to explore different options. She’s extremely reliable, responds to emails nearly instantaneously, and is extremely thorough in her work.

Robin made sure that our wedding day ran smoothly and never seemed to stress out about anything, despite all the chaos of the day. She made sure that everyone was in the right place and order for the ceremony, and also somehow made sure that all of our vendors arrived on time and knew exactly where to be at the reception location several miles away.

I literally cannot imagine having pulled together our wedding day without Robin there to help and support us throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend her to anyone that is planning a wedding – big, small, traditional, non-traditional, urban, country, whatever! - she’s seen it all and she’s well equipped to help you with anything and everything wedding related!

My wife and I thought we could handle the rigors of wedding planning on our own, but after we got started, we realized that we were overmatched and underprepared for what we were getting ourselves into. In comes Robin, who was a GODSEND. After handing over the reigns to Robin, who took all of our ideas, wants, and desires and turned them into a magical land of euphoria, my wife and I could get back to enjoying our last weeks of engagement bliss. By the time Saturday rolled around, we were excited and anxious to see how everything would come together. To say that we thoroughly enjoyed our day and loved every moment would be an understatement. I don't know how Robin did it, but somehow we had nothing but SUN in what was a very spotty/cloudy week in San Francisco. The ceremony, the photographers, the set up, the planning, and even down to small details were completely perfect. All of our friends showered us with compliments about how wonderfully perfect the day was, how amazing the food/music/atmosphere was, and just how everything was in sync. Robin was a VERY HUGE part of that.

From both of us, we just wanted to thank Robin again for everything that she did, big and small, and for putting up with all of our last minute antics. As many brides and grooms are leading up to the big day, we were a little scatterbrained, but everything ran smoothly and we loved every minute of it.

We could not have asked for a better coordinator and we have no idea where we would have been if we had done it on our own. Words cannot express how thankful we are for Robin and are truly blessed that our wedding was a smashing success and in every way, as cliché as it is, a dream come true for both of us. Truly incredible work and would definitely hire again in a heartbeat.

We had unusual circumstances that proved quite challenging for a wedding coordinator. Our location was far off the beaten path, about 3 hours north of San Francisco (the last 45 minutes navigating a windy, one-lane dirt road). Despite the undesirable commute, Robin graciously agreed to be our wedding coordinator AND for a very reasonable price.

From the beginning of our communications, she was quick to respond and provided exceptional detail where needed. I could tell immediately upon meeting her that she was a great fit. She exhibits an unparalleled attention to detail (a crucial quality for my husband, a detail-oriented person), a great memory, and a very pleasant and genial disposition.

On the day of the wedding, Robin showed up ahead of schedule exuding a cheerful readiness balanced by an air of professionalism. We quickly walked her through all of the tasks and locations of where certain things needed to happen. She immediately jumped right in, which is impressive considering all of the various events she had to direct over the course of the day. She did an amazing job. The day went perfectly! I could not have asked for a better coordinator. If something went terribly wrong (and I’m sure that it did), I would not have known because Robin so gracefully took care of it. My husband and I both think that hiring Robin was one of the best investments we made with our wedding. It allowed us to relax (as much as we could) and be present for our special day. Those memories will last us a lifetime.

I strongly recommend Robin to anyone that has a Bay Area wedding. She loves what she does, and it really shows!

We didn't want a traditional wedding, or anything of the sort. We wanted a customized celebration of our love, in an elegant, intimate, warm yet stylish setting. We had decided to have the celebration at The Westin St. Francis in San Francisco and were in search of a coordinator to help us with the reception. We got really lucky that we found Robin.

There are many wonderful things I can say about Robin. First of all, she is very kind, friendly, and pure joy to be around and speak with. You do want that quality in your planner. Then there are these amazing traits that set her apart from many planners in the Bay Area: She is very organized, extremely detail-oriented (which was so important to both of us), very prompt, very professional, very experienced, and very responsible. She also has a great network of vendors with whom she has worked over many years. That's why she could find vendors that best suited our personalities and were perfect for what we had in mind for our celebration. It would be really rare to find all these qualities in one person!

On the night of the celebration, we knew everything will go perfectly well, and it did. Most importantly, we didn't even have to think about anything except having fun. We just had fun, knowing she is there. Thank you so much Robin for your enjoyable company, your kindness, and for a job done amazingly well!

Make It Happen's Robin Lewis was one of my best vendors on my wedding day! Her years of experience really gave me piece of mind before the Big Day and it went off without any problems, creating an amazing memory for everyone!

Because I was a very hands-on bride, and my mother was too, we needed someone who would work with us by making sure the timeline went as planned and everyone (vendors and lots of family with children) was where they needed to be and when. During planning, Robin guided us with location questions and ceremony logistics, as well as making sure we felt comfortable to leave it all to her so we could enjoy ourselves. On the day of, I didn't once have to think about the venue or the flowers or the vendors, she had it taken care of and led us seamlessly through the day.

I truly recommend this coordinator, you will not regret having some (or all, depending on what you do/don't do) of the stress and pressure of planning a wedding to a professional who has done fabulous weddings and events for many years!! And she is just so nice to work with, by the end she felt like a good friend!

Her prompt replies and detailed planning were very welcome and left us with a feeling that we were in good hands.

Robin was super accommodating to our needs leading up the the very last minute of the wedding. The day-of strenuous activities were kept out of sight because she and her team were professional and able to handle the responsibilities that came up on the fly.

One of the more accommodating needs we didn't have planned, she arranged properly and kept us in peace of mind. Our 5 year old (needy) Labrador was cared for and accommodated as if he were her own in the hotel. Robin's responsibilities made our wedding planning much more streamlined and our budget was kept responsible at the end of the evening due to her understanding of wants vs. needs.

Robin is the right candidate for wedding planning as this skill-set relies on knowing key vendors as much as having the confidence and experience to solve the day-of conundrums. She's well capable of the highest needs of a wedding and her experience in the field of hospitality is nothing short of, well...hospitable. Highly recommended to those couples looking to seek an experienced wedding planner.

Robin is fantastic! She coordinated our May 2012 wedding at the Westin St Francis in San Francisco. Robin brought a bright ray of enthusiasm, but was also incredibly professional and smart. My wedding day was PERFECT! Everything ran smoothly and Robin and her staff took great care of us.

Robin was thorough in her preparation and answered questions quickly and thoughtfully. Robin answered all questions so that I felt confident about how the flow of the day was going to go! Robin was excellent about the overall flow and details of the wedding so that I never had to worry about anything. She planned all the wedding timeline info and reviewed it with us. It became very obvious Robin has a LOT of experience in wedding planning.

Leading up to the wedding, Robin met with me a number of times, and was very flexible with her availability. She is a great person to bounce ideas off of and gives honest (but gentle) feedback when it comes to ideas that might not work out so well in the long run. There was one idea I had that simply wasn’t feasible with the overwhelming number of guests that said Yes to our wedding invitation. Robin talked me off the ledge, made sure we could accommodate all the guests, and adjusted floor plans to ensure that everything was on schedule. True to her word, everything went smoothly, and I couldn't be more grateful for her quick-thinking and calming influence.

She has some great connections to vendors in the bay area, and I was very happy with all of her referrals.

On the day of the wedding, Robin and her assistant were on top of everything.

I am so happy that I met Robin. If you are looking for a coordinator with a lot of experience for an event, you really needn't look any farther. You will be very glad you hired Robin to help with your special day!

Robin is simply the best! From the instant we met her we knew that we wouldn't have anything to worry about on our wedding day. Robin brings a high level of professionalism to her work while maintaing a warm and caring air about her.

Robin coordinated everything down to the very last detail without leaving any stone unturned and kept us abreast of any changes that needed to be made. She is also one of the most responsive vendors I dealt with in our two year planning process.

I can't say enough about how incredible Robin is and how happy we are that she was a part of our big day. She understands brides and takes the time to really get to know everyone involved in the wedding, which truly makes her a standout.

Robin was the coordinator for our wedding at the Sir Francis Drake. She treated us like royalty and guided us through all of the little decisions (and there are so many) that make a wedding into a great party. She was a calm and reassuring presence in the wedding madness, and we felt so fortunate to have her. Plus, she is just a fun and good-hearted person, someone that you can't help but love. Highly recommended!

Robin Lewis was fabulous! I was a nervous mother of the bride, trying to organize her wedding in San Francisco last year, and had no idea even how to begin. Robin made my experience virtually effortless. Her enthusiasm and organizational skills were superb. My daughter, her fiancee and I enjoyed every encounter with her in the planning process. She organized food tastings, meetings with the Chef, lighting specialists, the room designer; everything I worried about was taken care of to perfection. Robin answered my phone calls and emails immediately, and worked within my budget. She kept telling me to enjoy the experience and that the wedding reception would be perfect, and it was. Any problems that came up at the last minute were taken care of seamlessly. She is a real professional and is a joy to work with too. The wedding was gorgeous and the reception was the best celebration ever. I was able to enjoy the day and forget about the details because she had taken care of everything. Robin coordinated the arrival, set-up and cleanup of all of the outside vendors. The event was a huge success in large part because of Robin! I would absolutely work with Robin again. She made the entire experience fun!

When you are looking for a wedding coordinator, you're probably looking for someone who is detail-oriented, responsive, experienced, and kind. That's Robin.

Robin pays attention to details. When I worked with Robin, she was the wedding contact person/coordinator at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel. Honestly, she was one of the main reasons we chose that venue. I could tell right away from her e-mails that she was 100% organized, responsive and capable of doing everything to help us prepare. Have you ever asked several questions in an email and gotten a response with only a few answers? It's not clear whether the person even took time to read your email. Robin's e-mails responded to every single question that I asked.

Robin is incredibly responsive. Robin always wrote back or called back right away. Even though she had many other brides as well as potential brides to respond to, I always felt like I was the only one, or at least the most important one. Many times I wondered how she was logistically able to get back to me so quickly, because she had many meetings to attend with brides and prospective brides, tastings, etc. She was always attentive and responsive.

Robin has a ton of experience. Robin has been in the business for a long time and knows exactly what needs to get done. At the hotel, I could have hired an additional wedding coordinator, but there was no need to. She took care of everything, and was very professional.

Finally, Robin is very kind. Who needs to work with someone who is anxious and snippy or anything negative on their wedding day? (No one!)

I give Robin my very highest recommendation.

Robin is simply amazing (period.) She was by far the best investment we could have made to make our day as special as it was. She helped with everything from consulting on flowers, cake, candles- you name it! to negotiating costs and brainstorming on how we could keep to our budget. With her help we saved money and were able to spend on extras that we didn't think were possible! That really goes to show what kind of value Robin brings to planning a wedding. Robin is super organized and always on top of everything! She is a bride's dream! Not only was she my planner, she has now turned into my friend. PRICELESS! She really helped everyone throughout the process, from my groom to my parents! Here is a little extra note of praise from my father:

Through the careful guidance of Robin this affair of a lifetime was a pleasure to behold.

From the earliest date of our interest in having this glorious event until the time that we left the day after the wedding, Robin was a source of guidance as all of the details were discussed, evaluated and finalized. From the room setup through the menu selection to the prompting of the wedding party to walk the aisle, Robin was there to enable my daughter to have the Princess wedding that our family will long remember as one of the proudest days of our lives.

It was a pleasure to work with Robin as she was such a wonderful person and looked out for our interests in all aspects of the formal occasion. It is a pleasure to write about her as I reflect on her dedication to providing our family with the wonderful experience we enjoyed throughout those blissful days.

Doesn't get much better than that! A+ for Robin!
