We tied the knot on May 24, 2014 at LA RIVER GARDENS. Leading up the wedding was quite stressful, as there were so many things to do. I have a quite busy schedule so it was nice to have Luz Pencyla help with the DAY OF coordination. I met with her 3 weeks prior to the wedding for the last minute details. Since I am always tied up at work, I had prepared a word file of what I wanted for my wedding. Over a cup of coffee, my sister and I reviewed the file with Luz Pencyla and her assistant. I had a wonderful vision in my mind, but honestly did not have the time to really do much research to ensure it got carried out. Honestly, Luz Pencyla did a wonderful job at bringing my vision to life. She is very efficient – which is my style. As we went over all the details ie: which linens, flower arrangements, candy table set up, greeting table, sitting chart, cocktail hour, she provided her input and I just went with it. I am glad I did --as everything that I had imagined came to life that day—and actually looked better than what I had envisioned.
I had two themes, Mexican-theme for the cocktail hour, and all white and elegant for the dinner. Our decorations were fabulous. Luz was also timely and cordial to our guests. Very professional. Anything that was not part of the package, she let me know the cost ahead of time, so there were no surprise charges. We also had tacos for an after dinner snack and they were delicious. Better than some of the best street tacos. Luz, her assistant, and staff also took care of us. We love to dance so we never left the dance floor. Luz even brought my new husband tacos and cake out to the dance floor to make sure he ate. Her assistant also fixed my dress and kept making sure I was comfortable. I did provide a lot of details to add to the decorations : ie chalkboards, pictures, some succulent plants. Everything I gave her she packaged up and returned to me at the end of the night. She has our highest recommendations

Where do I start when it comes to Luz - she was AMAZING. She listened to what I wanted, made sure my vision was exactly what she put front, and took everyones breath away. She is very detailed oriented and has the magic touch. My wedding flowers were out of this world. Everyone said it looked like a fairytale wedding. There was nothing she did that I did not like. I highly recommend working with Luz and she is very good with working on budgetd - nothing short of amazing. Thanks Luz for making our wedding spectacular.

We came across Luz Pencyla by our venue area at Los Angeles River Center. They gave us a listing of various catering companies. We went to 2 sampling and Luz was our last one on the list. First impression of Luz was very welcoming and kind hearted!! We told her that we wanted have Mexican authentic food!!! I told her that I wanted to have mint rice on the menu too. When we met her for the sampling of the food. My jaw drop to the floor... Their was so much food and it tasted to delicious!!! She even made the mint rice that I requested. It didn't come out the way how it should have been, but she didn't forget about my request. :)
She told us to be honest with her about her food and we did give her feed-back.. We loved it!!!
If any of you love ceviche cocktail, Luz and her team make the best ceviche!!!!
I sent her an email about a few months ago after we had our food tasting that I would love if she can save us some ceviche that she served during cocktail hour. Keep in mind this was about 4 or 8 months back prior to the big day. On our wedding day, Luz had one of her people come to us and brought us some chips and ceviche!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was like wow!!! She is awesome... That says a lot about LUZ... All of our guest including us loved the food. Everyone was pleased and left home with a happy belly..
She also helped me out on the flower venue decoration. She is a one stop shop!!! When we met to go over the colors for the wedding. I had already previously chatted with her what colors I want and also the kind of flowers I wanted too... I fell in-love with the selection she brought with her. Ladies, if you want a certain look, definitely bring pictures and share your thoughts and ideas with your wedding coordinator. It worked with me and Luz. :) She did such a beautiful job on the flower arrangements.
She also helped me with wedding decoration ideas too!!!! :) She has beautiful and creative ideas..
I would recommend Special Events by Luz Pencyla! A&M

Luz is in one word- Amazing! She is very professional, gets down to the nitty gritty and is perfect at what she does. Luz not only knows how to make a beautiful wedding but she is acommodating and worked with me in tayloring my package to fit my needs at the Los Angeles River Center and Gardens. She made my wedding beyond beautiful and my food was awesome. All my guest complimented how lovely everything turned out and that they actually enjoyed their food! She stayed behind the scenes and worked diligently to keep things running smoothly. She even saved me when my ridiculous florist forgot to bring my ceremony arch! She magically did something creative with the flowers they did deliver for the arch and saved the day. I ended up even liking her arch decoration better! She truly knows how to do her job and run her business. She is an expert and I cannot thank her enough for all the " behind the scene saves" she did for me on my wedding day. She is amazing! Hire her!

Fantastic!!! Luz was sooo easy to work with and her prices were so reasonable. She was very flexible, prompt and responsive! I felt so comfortable with having her in charge all the rentals, decor, and staff and trusted she would do a beautiful job, as she did!!!
She was there the whole time on the day of my wedding making sure everything was going well.
She is an absolute team player and worked so well with my amazing wedding planner (Stacy Porras) and caterer (who was a bit more challenging to work with).
Thanks for a beautiful day Luz!!!

Luz was recommended to us by our venue's coordinator because she's worked plenty of times at our venue.

When meeting with Luz we were convinced that she would be a great help in organizing and facilitating our wedding. She provided day of coordination, all floral arrangements, serving staff, bartenders, linens, tableware, and table/chair rentals. A couple of months prior to the wedding Luz called a meeting where she would show us a 'sample' table setting for the day of. She went out of her way to show us two different designs to make sure we got what we wanted.

Her experience in the field of planning was evident the day of when she directed her staff and paid attention to every detail from the itinerary we set with her several weeks before the wedding. Our flower bouquets were delivered to our hotel on time and beautifully made. She even provided a couple extra boutonniere's for the groomsmen and parents. At the wedding reception site, Luz and her staff took care of set up and breakdown, she even decorated our plain white tiered cake with fresh flowers to match the centerpieces. She executed everything so well.

When the venue's staff failed in providing the heaters for the evening, she took care of it by researching the communication between parties and not letting me get worried. Also, when my husband stained his tie with food, her staff rushed to clean it with their 'emergency cleaning kit.' With Luz's help, our entire family and wedding party got to enjoy the reception as guests.

In looking back our wedding was truly dream like and better than any dream I could make up, all because of Luz's help and ideas. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Luz to any engaged couple! Thank you Luz!!!

My husband and I got married at the Los Angeles River Center on Oct 1, 2011 and one of the best decisions we made was to hire Luz and her team. We were on a budget but decided we needed a coordinator to help us the day off, so we could truly enjoy ourselves the day of the wedding. Wel,l sure enough Luz provided much more then just the day off services, she guided us through the planning, made excellent suggestions, and made us feel comfortable. I have nothing but good things to say about Luz, she took our wedding to a whole new level. I still cant believe how beautiful everything turned out. We not only had a wonderful coordinator we felt as if we gained a friend through out the whole experience. One specific example is that i lost the back of my earing and as soon as Luz found out, with our hesitation she gave me hers. If that is not excellent service, i don't know what is!

The best decision I ever made in the whole wedding planning was hiring Luz Pencyla. She took my flowers & decor, catering, and rentals to levels I only dreamed of, but thought I never could afford. Luz is extremely affordable and no matter what your budget she will create a spectacular event for you. She did all the legwork for me. I only had to choose colors. Her suggestions are wonderful and she has incredible taste which made it so easy to trust her. When I saw my ceremony and reception I wanted to cry, because of the beauty. She is super hardworking and so is her staff. My family and friends raved about the chicken marsala & barbacoa we served and were stunned by the beauty of my venue's decorations. It was truly enchanting. Her staff are very courteous and polite, very helpful and willing to go above and beyond. What a breath of fresh air Luz Pencyla and her team were. She made my wedding everything I dreamed of, but MORE. Like I said, she was the best investment I made.

While Luz did coordinate an amazing wedding for us there were many things that I looked back at and was severely disappointed. As a florist my centerpieces were amazing! My bouquets unfortunately were horrible and not at all what I asked for even though I went to her twice to have my flower samples. For what we paid for our bouquets I could've made the same thing from Traders Joes flowers. Our centerpieces on the other hand where extravagant (the bouquets were supposed to match...)!! Another thing that really disappointed me was that the cups that were used for the beer were the red plastic cups you see at BBQs! Completely tacky to see everyone holding red cups in photos and sitting around on the tables. May as well just give them the beer bottle instead. Luz isn't very responsive through email. My mom would send numerous emails and not hear back from her until we would have to call and track her down. Another disappointment was as a day of coordinator I would expect the coordinator to be around during photos to make sure everyone looked ok and stayed in place. I missed out on many group family photos since I didn't have the help, and my MOH was in the pics so she couldn't go wrangle people. Overall Luz's prices are reasonable and it's great that she's done so many weddings at LA River Center and Gardens so she knows exactly how things should be done. It was also nice to be able to go to one person for everything and not have to locate a ton of different vendors. Overall it was a pleasure to work with Luz, I just wish a little more attention to certain things had been paid on the day of.

My husband and I got married at the Los Angeles River Center and Gardens on March 19, 2011. We had the best venue and the absolute best coordinator in the world. Working with Luz was fun, easy, and very affordable. What most impressed me about Luz is that she really enjoys what she does; it's more than a career for her, it's a passion, and it shows in her work. You won't be dissappointed at all. LUZ IS THE BEST!!! Our wedding was perfect. It was so organized, fun, and enjoyable. Guests are still talking about how beautiful it all was. She handled everything: she has her own catering company, rentals, decorations, and flowers. The ceremony, the decorations, and the food were perfect. We didn't have to worry about anything. It was the best day of our lives and we remember everything because she allowed us to actually enjoy the event. We highly highly recommend Special Events by Luz Pencyla.

We got married at the LA River Center & Gardens, and their staff mentioned Luz to us. We were so glad they did! Believe the full-on five star ratings you see here - Luz is wonderful. We were having food catered by an Indian restaurant, but we needed rentals, as well as staff to serve the food and coordinate the event. Luz provided all of the day-of coordination, but she was so much more than a day-of coordinator. She met with me and my fiance several times, and walked through the site with my mom beforehand to plan decorations. She also provided helpful spreadsheets for planning the flow of the event. On the day of, she was so nice about helping my mom decorate, and went with the flow when my mom had, um, strong opinions :-) She also provided bartenders who handled signature cocktails according to our requests along with beer and wine - they were fantastic. And her staff were kind, helpful, and made the event seamless. We had a complicated wedding with many moving parts (several ceremonies, separate alcohol, food and cake vendors, homemade decorations) and she supported all of them flawlessly. Thank you, Luz!

I wasn't sure if we need a wedding planner for the day of our wedding, but I'm sure glad we hired Luz to help us out the day of our wedding. She provided the catering, the flowers for the church and centerpieces, linen, glass, tables, chairs, bartender and staff. Our wedding day ran smooth and everyone had a amazing time. The only thing that was missing which is not a big deal, was the flower pillow she was suppose to provide for my ring bear to carry down the aisle. Other than that, everything turned out beautiful and I was amazed on how much work she did to get the venue set up in time to receive our guest and made sure to have the venue clean up in order for us to get our deposit back. Thank you Luz for your amazing job.

We met Luz at a brides night at The Los Angeles River and Garden Center. I was really impressed with the variety in her table presentations. So we set up a food tasting appointment with my then fiancé, mom and maid of honor. The food was delicious my husband defiantly approved. We decided on the Chicken Florentine and Barbacoa de res, both were juicy and favorable. Guest later confessed that they went up for seconds one even admitted to thirds. She also recommended a cake vendor who provided the most delicious moist cake with the best filling I have ever tasted.
Luz is absolutely passionate about her career; she attends conferences to learn more and stay current (which I don’t think she needs). She really tries to get to know your sense of style, colors, types of flowers, tall or short arrangements, and any other likes and dislikes. She is very flexible and made suggestions when I was unsure of what I wanted. I emailed her a picture (2 weeks before the wedding) of way I wanted the flower arrangement to look on our sweetheart table. She went above and beyond my expectations. My family is big on real flowers (so am I) and they and I absolutely loved the flower arrangements, she captured the perfect height and fullness with the hydrangeas and romance with the roses which blended beautifully with the small lilies and green hypericum berries.
During the cocktail hour, Luz and her staff were amazing at keeping our guest in the cocktail area and did a terrific job of seating everyone. With a big Latino family sometimes you get big personalities that don’t want to abide by the seating chart, I heard that Luz did an amazing job of staying professional and seating everyone according to the chart that I created. She kept us on track and was very accommodating to my husband and I.
Thank you for making our 9/10/10 wedding a beautiful memory for us and our guests.

Luz was absolutely wonderful. She was extremely helpful in bringing my ideas to fruition. I made the mistake of hiring another florist and he just could not do what I was asking of him so fortunately I was able to fire him before the wedding and Luz came to the rescue with absolutely beautiful centerpieces and ceremony arrangements. Everyone commented on just how beautiful everything looked. Her staff was very polite and accomodating. They even held my garter for me when I was having issues with it falling down my leg!! The food was very good but the portions were a little mismatched from plate to plate. Don't be afraid to have a menu in mind even if it's not on her list; her chef can pretty much make anything! Oh and ask about the "Taco Lady", it was a great surprise to my guests at the end of of the night and they were delicious! To be honest a bride can never feel completely at ease at her own wedding because she's always worried about everything going just right, but once I knew that Luz really had everything under control I was able to enjoy the whole night without any worries.

I cannot say enough good things about Special Events by Luz Pencyla. Luz and her staff went up above and beyond to make our wedding more beautiful and amazing than we could ever imagine. You will not find anyone else in L.A. or Orange County who offers the same service and quality for the price.

We got married at the Los Angeles River Center and Gardens on July 9th, 2010 and worked with Luz for over half a year to plan for our wedding. First, the food is the BEST! We went with Mexican dishes, including Carnitas de Puerco and Chicken Chipotle. Our guests were blown away by the delicious food and we had so many compliments. Our guest also could not believe how beautiful EVERYTHING looked! Fresh colorful flowers everywhere you turn included in the price. Our tables looked picture perfect with lovely orange lanterns that we added to the center of flower centerpieces. The cocktail hour area, ceremony area, reception area and everywhere else looked like an "enchanted forrest" as our photographer put it.

Whatever your vision or taste is, Luz really listens to what you want and she made sure everything was exactly as we had discussed. She was a wonderful coordinator and event planner to work with. We are still getting all kinds of positive feedback from our guests. They were just blown away at how stellar everything looked. Her staff was so attentive to our guests and looked so professional. My husband, family and I are so grateful to Luz and her company for making our wedding day the happiest day of our life! No one else we considered compared to the amount of service offered by this vendor. Thank you to Luz!!

Thanks to Luz Pencyla and her team of professional staff, she created the fairytale wedding that i've always dreamed of! From the first moment we met, I knew that she was the one who would be able to realize my vision for our wedding. She knew exactly what I wanted and paid very close attention to the smallest of details. She made the planning so easy for us, we never had to worry about anything. In fact she provided us a with a budget breakdown and itinerary so we could design our day as we wanted. The day of our wedding everything ran smoothly, the food was amazing and she even went the extra mile for us. She carefully displayed our family hierlooms and then carefully packaged them up for our Moms to take home. Our guests were absolutely BLOW AWAY from the beginning of the event to the very end. She thought of everything! We received so many compliments from our family and friends and continue to hear about how our wedding was the best wedding they have ever attended. We are proud to share Luz Pencyla with our friends and in fact... I think she may have picked up a few soon to be brides at our wedding! Luz... we absolutely appreciate everything! Thank you for making our dream wedding come true! With much love, Tanya and Shawn Mckendry

Our special day was brought to life thanks to Special Events by Luz Pencyla. My husband and I had a wonderful, pleasant and easy experience with Luz; she made sure that she captured every little detail I requested. She went beyond during meetings and table settings. She made us feel at peace and ensured us her work with great follow up. The day of the wedding she did a GREAT job making sure the guess were attended and the event was on schedule. Luz defiantly removed a load of stress from me before and during the wedding, I always knew that my special day was in great hands.

Thank you Special Events

My husband and I are very lucky to have found Mrs. Pencyla, since the first time we met her we knew she was exactly the person that we were looking for. She is a very kind lady, very professional and understanding. She was able to meet our bodget and everything was truly beyond our expectations; my bouquet was gorgeous and our centerpieces were fabulous that our guests were amazed and we had so many compliments throughout the night. Everything was so beautiful that we still can't believe it. It was a pleasure to work with her and we highly recommend her.

Thank you so much Mrs. Pencyla for making our day even more special, everything was stunning we really liked it.
Love, Alma y Omar (los de puebla)

El dia de nuestra boda fue el dia mas importante en nuestra vida y queriamos que todo estuviera perfecto, mi esposo y yo tuvimos mucha suerte al encontrar a la Sra. Pencyla porque ella nos ayudo a que esto fuera posible. Desde el primer momento que la conocimos supimos que ella era la persona que estabamos buscando, ella es muy amable, profesional, comprensiva y muy carismatica. Me encanto que se adapto a nuestro presupuesto he hizo un trabajo impresionante; el salon donde fue nuestra recepcion lucia hermoso y muy elegante honestamente supero nuestras expectativas. Me hizo un ramo precioso que no pude contener las lagrimas por la gran felicidad que sentia y los centros de mesa estuvieron fabulosos que todos nuestros invitados quedaron impresionados y recibimos muchos alagos. Todo estuvo muy bonito quedamos fascinados con su trabajo que nuevamente requeriremos de sus servicios para la fiesta de XV de nuestra hija pues ya sabemos que ella es la persona indicada para que todo quede excepcional y es un placer recomendarla ampliamente.

Muchisimas gracias Sra. Pencyla por hacer nuestro dia aun mas especial realmente nos gusto muchisisimo. Sinceramente, Alma y Omar (los de puebla)

My daughter was getting married in California, daughter lived in Texas, and I lived in Florida. Given this scenario, I thought organizing my daugher's wedding was going to be a mission. But I was so FORTUNATE to chose Luz and I could not have done this without her expertise and her detail to perfection. She alwasy very responsiveness to my emails and phone calls, flexible in meeting with me when I flew in to California, and her ideas were always RIGHT ON! I used Luz not only for catering, but tables, chairs, arch, flowers, etc. Anything you need for a wedding, I can assure you she can make it happen. On the wedding day, I could not tell you how HAPPY my daughter and son-in-law were to see their special day come true just the way they had hoped. It was truly a magical evening that would not happen without Luz and her professional staff. Her costs are very affordable (and I did check around) and you will be very, very, happy with the outcome.

Working with Luz was a great experience for us, she was so easy to work with, and very flexable, she worked wonders with the small budget that we had. Luz is very creative and very up to date with today's wedding styles. She did such a great job on all the bouquets and boutonnieres, she listened to every word I said and created exactly what I wanted. She was able to transform the senior center in which our reception was held in to sheer elegance. When my husband and I walked in to the room we were so taken a back with the beauty of everything, the flowers were amazing, the linens and chair covers looked so beautiful and the set up of our sweetheart table looked like it was out of a magazine. Our family and friends talked about the decor at our wedding for weeks, they couldn't believe that there were so many roses of the same color in one room, we had over 20 tables! Luz picked up on our personalities and our visions and truly created the wedding of our dreams!

We got married at Dove Canyon Courtyard in Trabuco Canyon, Ca. I was one of those brides who thought I would be able to do everything by my self, but only 3 months away from our wedding date I only had my wedding dress ordered and the location. Luz was highly recommended by a friend who was a guest at one of Luz's weddings and was amazed by her work. The moment we meet with her we knew she was the right person for us. She was so attentive at all our needs, and her ideas are really one of a kind. Not only did she explained everything to us but also made a beatiful set up for us. We used Luz for everything catering,cake, tables, chairs, linens, flowers, and everything else you need for a wedding. The moment we walked in we were just so amazed! Her extraordinary work was just perfect!!! Luz did so many extra things and transformed the place into an astounding place!!! Everyone mentioned on her exceptional work. We have been married for just a little over a year and guest still talk about our wedding and how breath taking it was. I honestly can't thank her enough for making our wedding day the happiest day of our life!!! Her prices are so reasonable we turned out spending less than what we had expected! Don't hesitate Luz will turn your event into a dream come true!!!
