Robin is worth her weight in gold. Best decision we made in the wedding planning process! There is no way I could have organized and orchestrated the intricate details of my daughter's wedding without her. She truly is fantastic!! I knew we were in good hands with Robin and I did not have to worry about anything. My husband and I got to enjoy our daughter's special day. Robin made it all seamless, the day was PERFECT. I cannot recommend her highly enough! She is a MUST HAVE!

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!

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!

Robin is absolutely amazing!!!! From the moment I first spoke with her over the phone, I knew she was exactly who I needed to help me plan my wedding. We were on a tight budget but I had a dream venue in mind that I was sure would not work with my budget. But like the name of her business, she made it happen! I highly highly recommend Robin for any wedding planning needs- she is professional, has great experience and is just wonderful to work with!

As we were planning my daughter's wedding, we were introduced to Robin. My daughter who was living in Texas at the time wanted to have a wedding in San Francisco. Robin helped us find an amazing venue, helped us in getting great pricing, coordinated the entire event up to the smallest of the details. She also introduced us to a great DJ who did a fantastic job. Overall I was very impressed with Robin and appreciated all of her help. She is an amazing wedding planner. My laugher's wedding was absolutely great. Needles to say, I highly recommend Robin. Thanks to her, my daughter and I were able to enjoy the special day, knowing that we were in good hands.

First off, whenever anyone would tell me "you are so calm for a bride??" i would reply "just wait until you meet Robin!" Yes, she is THAT good. Secondly, i don't know how people get married without a wedding planner! Why would you WANT to stress yourself out when it's supposed to be one of the greatest moments in your life. Let's be honest here, planning a wedding can be very stressful if you make it so.
I found Robin via a friend who had used her and gotten married at the venue we were leaning towards (Westin St Francis). When i got on the phone with Robin, i immediately knew that she was the one - it absolutely clicked! It helped too that she used to be the Wedding Coordinator at the Westin St Francis, the venue we ultimately ended up picking and had a stellar reputation in the Bay Area.
From the start she made the wedding process so smooth and easy. While i was a pretty hands off bride, i did want to have some say in vendor selection, etc. She got to know both my (now) husband and I and it completely reflected in the wedding she pulled together and the vendors she recommended. She was always so quick to respond and such a pleasure to work with. Wedding Weekend: Robin is the reason this weekend was so smooth and stress free for me. She pulled together the most amazing wedding weekend timeline ever seen by myself and all my (married) bridesmaids. If anything went wrong that day, i truly had no idea and that in and of itself is reason enough to hire a wedding planner! I truly miss working with her. Anyone would be lucky to have her plan their wedding. Robin - THANK YOU!!!

From the day I got engaged I was overwhelmed with the prospect of having to plan our very large wedding. When I started working with Robin, things started coming together. Robin had worked at a couple of the large hotels in San Francisco so she was familiar with the hotel wedding scene, which is the type of venue we wanted for our wedding. She was most valuable in her role as day of coordinator. She organized our vendors and created a timeline. If things didn't go as planned during our wedding, I never knew about it! I trusted her completely and besides feeling wedding day jitters, I was at ease and did not even think about the vendors on my wedding day. I highly recommend Robin if you are considering a wedding in San Francisco.

We worked with Robin Lewis for our daughter Allison's wedding which took place on March 5, 2016. Robin's attention to detail and her organizational skills helped to make our wedding run smoothly and allowed us to really enjoy the entire evening and ultimately made all of us feel relaxed and calm. She is an expert at organizing a large wedding and was able to handle the many vendors that were hired for the evening. She was also attentive to any requests or questions that came up the day of the wedding. I recommend Robin as an experienced wedding planner.

Robin was an absolute lifesaver and gem to work with all the way up to our wedding, and took care of all the details on the day itself. From the beginning she made the whole planning process easier -- starting with a wonderfully curated list of vendors selected based on her experience with them and our needs and style. This gave me enough great people to choose from, without making the selection process overwhelming. Throughout all the planning, Robin was able to help us prioritize what needed to be done and make sure sure we were on top of everything. As the big day got close, she new all the details and aligned all the vendors to make sure everyone knew everything that needed to be done. On our wedding day we didn't need to worry about any of the details, because Robin had everything under control and going smoothly. Thank you, Robin! Our day was an absolute dream, and we couldn't have done it without you!!

I hired Robin to help coordinate and assist in planning my wedding at the Westin St. Francis in SF. We hired her shortly after my engagement, in total, worked with her about 7 months prior to my wedding.

Robin is easy to talk to, professional, efficient, kind, understanding and very detail oriented! She has a lot of experience planning weddings and prior to this business, she worked as a wedding coordinator for the St. Francis so really knows the ins and outs of weddings from all angles.

She reviewed and negotiated all of our contracts with vendors and saved us thousands of dollars overall!

Not only did she manage all the business aspects of the wedding planning for me but she was also a much needed emotional sounding board! When I was stressed or frustrated about anything I knew I could reach out to her to vent. She literally would talk to me on the phone for as long as I needed. I recall one time hanging up and it had been more than an hour! She was always quick to get back to me via email as well. If she did not have time to answer my questions, she would still take a moment to email me and let me know when I should expect to hear from her. I really appreciated that!

Her timeline for the weekend was amazing-every contact we may need was listed in one place. The entire weekend was broken down from the rehearsal dinner schedule, the wedding day from the moment we woke to what our after party plan was, to the brunch the morning after the wedding, EVERY detail accounted for listed by time.

In the days leading up to the wedding, she continued to be the liaison between the vendors and I. I cannot imagine doing all this without her, there are so many things you need to think about! Everything went as planned and even if there was something that did not go right, I did not know about it during the party because she was there to take care of it! Having a point person is really a must and I highly recommend Robin if you are looking for a wedding planner!
