You made the most important decision....you said "yes!" Now let us help you make the next 225 decisions about your wedding day!

We have surveyed over 100 brides to be in the San Diego area, and these 3 things always top the list of frustrations and causes of stress while planning a wedding:

~the time it takes ~ feeling confident about wedding vendors ~ staying on budget

Here's how Moments of Magic addresses these frustrations:

1. THE TIME IT TAKES

Creating Moments of Magic for brides is my full time career. So while you are at work, I am working for you! And, we limit the number of weddings we do per month to be able to focus on, and give our full energy to your unique event. When you work with Moments of Magic, you'll quickly realize that you are working with a "partner" who is available to you when you need me and focused on your special day!

2. FEELING CONFIDENT ABOUT WEDDING VENDORS

Finding professional wedding vendors that you connect with and trust is a vital part of the success of your wedding. How can you tell from a website if a deejay isn't really a karaoke jockey with no emcee experience? You can rest assured that my network of vendors are hand picked and chosen for their professionalism, performance and willingness to put their own egos aside to make your wedding day the celebration of your dreams! We have a collection of vendors that fit every personality, style and budget.



3. STAYING ON BUDGET

I believe that you should get the most fair price for the services you are seeking. With over 15 years of managing other people's expenditures, and the knowlege I have for what wedding services SHOULD cost along with my vast network of contacts, helping you get the biggest payoff for your hard earned dollars is second nature.

An experienced wedding planner will pay for themselves with the time, stress and money you save throughout your planning process. And, when you call, make sure you ask how to receive our money back guarantee!



IN ORDER TO FIND OUT IF MOMENTS OF MAGIC IS THE PERFECT FIT FOR YOU AND

YOUR WEDDING PLANS, CONTACT US NOW! WE'RE ONLY A PHONE CALL AWAY!

After having a meeting with our venue, we realized that we needed a day-of coordinator. Thus, Brenda entered our little world and we are SO much better for it! Brenda & Moments of Magic were wonderful! Not only did she hold our hand through the process (she gives EXCELLENT advice), she was extremely knowledgeable about the venue we’d chosen and what things would work well for our plans. Extremely organized, she kept track of everything so we didn't have to think twice about anything, and her energy and spirit were fit right in with our crazy group. And She’s a down home Southern woman, so that was a huge plus, made everyone feel right at home! She knew just how to manage our emotions during that time and we can’t thank her enough for it. We HIGHLY recommend her to anyone who needs a planner &/or coordinator.

Hiring Brenda was the best decision I made when planning our wedding. I hired her nearly a year before our wedding and she helped with every single detail, making it as stress free for us as possible. Brenda responded quickly to every single question I had for her and she took my vision and made it a million times better than I ever could have imagined. Every vendor she recommended did an amazing job. Brenda put so much thought into every aspect of the wedding, all our guests were amazed by all the little details she included. I can't even express how thankful we are for everything she did for us.

We actually won Brenda's day of services as part of a prize package, and she was terrific. We actually weren't planning on having dayof coordination but now I would heartily recommend it to any bride. What a pleasure it was to show up to the ceremony knowing everything was taken care of and to leave at the end without breaking things down!

I just moved here from Canada, moved into a new home, had to adjust to the NAVY WIFE LIFE and plan a wedding in 60 days. I found Brenda on Wedding Wire, checked her website and her reviews and met with her. 2 weeks later hubby came back from deployment and we met again and hubby approved.

Brenda made our Wedding Dreams come true. She went above and beyond everything we could have asked for. The only way we can explain is by telling you everything!!! LOL I asked for a DIVA PRINCESS wedding with dark red/gold turtle theme. I wanted things to pop but also be classic as well, what a request right?!?!??! We originally had everyone in La Mesa, Ceremony in La Jolla and Reception in Newport Beach and b/c of this we would have gone way over budget so Brenda figured out a way to still have a beautiful Ceremony & Reception all in the OC area instead. From that day forward, we put our whole wedding in her hands. We pretty much said "here is our budget.............. WE TRUST YOU" From decorations, flowers, ceremony music, transporation etc. she did it all. All we had to do was say Yes and NO ( well mostly Yes) Sometimes, it's the wedding planner's job to say NO when you are going over budget but her NO's didn't feel negative in anyway as she was trying to help us and we greatly appreciated it.

To keep our budget under, Brenda was a big fan of DIY. I think parts of your wedding should be DIY it gives it a personal touch. All paper ( favor tags, place cards, program ), wedding favour Cake Pops, and cookies were all done by myself and friends. Ceremony and Reception decorations were done by Brenda for a small fee. If it wasn't for Brenda I would have spent $100's of dollars on these things. She even got me turtle candles and decorations for the ceremony. Our reception was on Electra Cruises and they had their own Wedding Day Co-ordinator but Brenda still came with us to finalize the reception and evern helped out at the reception and she didn't even have to.

Jeff, her son was awesome. He communicated with us through out the day if Brenda was busy and assited my whole wedding party with any of their needs. Jeff thank you for emptying those sand vials!!!! So sweet of him to help her out and be so attentive on our wedding day. He needs a raise Brenda!!!!

If you are looking for someone who is NOT the "cookie cutter" type wedding planner, BRENDA is the one for you. She doesn't over price, (but I think with her work she should LOL) and she will always respond to any calls, emails and text in a timely manner. She actually CARES about your wedding and WANTS all your dreams to come true.

Brenda is truly AMAZING!! My husband's first impression of her was a very reliable and helpful aunt. I don't know how we could have pulled it off without her. She is extremely polite and professional. However, she was stern enough to handle our slightly rowdy and very fun loving wedding party! She took care of EVERYTHING! I was a very DIY bride so we used silk flowers for everything. Hubby, family, and I made all the decorations - from the centerpieces to the candy buffet to the table numbers. She set EVERYTHING up perfectly! Our wedding turned out better than we expected because of Brenda. :)

Brenda even went the extra mile AFTER our wedding to iron out a head count hiccup with our venue!

It was a priviledge to serve as your "auntie" and make sure all of your creativity shined on your wedding day! I really enjoyed working with all of the things you made, and stand in awe of the talent you have! Thank you for letting me be a special part of your day.

Brenda was a major life saver when it comes to my wedding. She definitely went above and beyond! I only hired her to be a day of coordinator but she did so much more. She asked vendors questions that I would have never thought of. She made sure that everything was perfect!! If there were any problems, they were unknown to me which is exactly what I wanted. I didn't want any worries for me or anyone else. She worked with me while I was deployed overseas and stuck with me for two different dates since the military interfered with the first. Everything that she put together was absolutely beautiful and I couldn't imagine using anyone else!

Christina.....what a priviledge it was for me to be part of your wedding celebration...both the one that almost was before your deployment and the one that was upon your return! You were a dream to work with, and I wish you and Robby a long and happy life together! And, I thank you both for your service to our country and for making the sacrifices that come along with that service.

Brenda did aa great job helping with our wedding planning. She Helped me have a very carefree wedding which made my wedding so wonderful. She helped me finish a lot of the last minute details like place cards and setting everything up. Brenda coordinated with all of my vendors and had a typed itinerary for every person involved in the wedding. I could not have asked for a better wedding planner. I highly recommend Moments of Magic for wedding planning!
