Every wedding is as unique as the couple it unites and the same is true for the services needed. Whatever level of assistance you need, Storybook will be able to provide. Fees are based on just the services you need ~ if you don't need it, you won't pay for it. You may have noticed that most wedding designers don't list their prices, instead asking you to contact them for a quote. On my website, I've put my fees right up front and I hope you appreciate that.

Our first one-hour meeting is complimentary. We need to spend some time together just seeing if we are a match. I believe that during your wedding planning, and especially on the day itself, you should be surrounded by people you can completely trust and who really "get you." I would be delighted and honored to be that person for you.

I limit the number of clients I take on each year to ensure my full attention and unparalleled service. For your FREE consulation, email me (storybookweddingdesign@hotmail.com) or call (530.913.8537). Let's discuss how Storybook can help you create, and then thoroughly enjoy, the best day of your life...the picture-perfect telling of your love story, your way. Read less

Brenda Hodges is absolutely AMAZING. She is by far 100% the best investment we made for our entire wedding. She is a total networker and knows local places, key people, and how to get the best deals on almost everything. She has been planning weddings for over 30 years and she's got it down! She knows exactly what you'll need for your wedding and exactly where to find it.

The thing that really impressed me with Brenda was her talent to pin point my style, as well as others, perfectly. She has an amazing gift of asking people what styles they like, and creating a perfect dream-day specifically for them. She does not implement any of her own personal design interests unless asked and makes it clear that she will only implement what you want and YOUR style. She knows how to work with a simple budget of a few thousand, to a large budget of over seventy thousand.

When we first met up with Brenda she gave us a questionnaire that really helped us organize our thoughts. Then, she assisted us in answering any questions we had. She did everything for my wedding and all I had to do was buy my dress and send out my invites.

One of her biggest intentions is to create an atmosphere for the bride and groom that is relaxing, easy going, and has nothing to do with the behind the scenes coordinating. She didn't even want me doing any busy work the week of my wedding. She just wanted me to relax, get ready to be married, and enjoy my family traveling in from out of town.

Brenda with Storybook Wedding Design and Management is amazing! My husband and I hired Brenda for day-of coordinating for our wedding and we couldn't have been happier with her services. Brenda ensured that our wedding day was smooth and crisis-free. If there were any "fires" that had to be put out that day we were not aware of it. When we arrived at the venue before the ceremony, everything and everyone were right where they were supposed to be. She even took care of things that my husband and I had neglected to discuss with her before the event. Brenda was everywhere that day yet hardly seen; she took care of all the vendor contact that day, had emergency supplies for wardrobe malfunctions, and she even made sure that everything was wrapped up and taken care of at the end of the evening. Brenda's services are an incredible value; we definitely felt that for the number of hours she worked that day she was worth every penny, if not more than what she charges. We would recommend her to anyone and everyone. If you hire Brenda you will be in good hands!

Brenda, of Storybook Wedding Design was amazing to work with. I have to say, initially, I was pretty hesitant to work with a wedding planner. My mother, however, insisted I do since my wedding would be in California and she and any other family/friends of family who would've been able to help, were located in the midwest.

Brenda was recommended by a friend in Michigan who was having her help with her own wedding, despite the distance. I am so thankful for all the help that Brenda provided leading up to the wedding, and especially the day before/day of—she’s a master at what she does.

Brenda makes a huge effort to understand the bride and groom together, as well as apart, to best help create the look and feel they desire for their wedding. She is extremely responsive, knowledgeable in terms of pricing, resourceful in finding great deals, very organized, creative, and has a great eye for decorating down to the little details. Brenda created or provided most of the décor items that pulled the look of our wedding together.

I’d recommend her to anyone located near or far from Northern California, distance doesn’t really matter. As I mentioned earlier, she helped a friend with her wedding in Michigan (which turned out beautiful) and my own was in Ojai, CA, over 7 hours away from where she is located.

Brenda was amazing from start to finish. Honestly, she anticipated virtually all of our needs and provided the majority of the decor items for our wedding. She worked really hard to get everything set up and to make sure we were calm and relaxed on the wedding day. I cannot imagine someone better than Brenda at handling the details of a wedding. She is extremely thoughtful, detail oriented, and composed throughout the process. Brenda is the best!

My favorite part was all the help the day of the wedding. I felt like everything was being taken care of! I also liked being able to discuss vendors and problem solving together as we came across issues that maybe we hadn't thought of before. It was nice having connections for decor rental options as well.Thank you!

Brenda was an amazing help on our big day! I keep thinking about it and wondering, "how did that ever get done?" and it was because of her, she knew what needed to be done and did it, making the pre-wedding stuff much more fun for me. She kept things rolling according to schedule and made things seem flawless.
I am a bit of a control freak and to relinquish my control over to her was easy. I knew that she would get the job done and do it well. She was also very supportive throughout the planning process and constantly asked what I needed.
Brenda has beautiful and rare decor items for rent that made our day really ours. It was so nice to have her by my side. I would recommend her any day.

Brenda was the planner for our wedding and did a fantastic job! She was very professional and the day turned out wonderfully. Even the one minor snafu (with the catering) was quickly resolved. Brenda also added lots of nice little extra touches, like a pillow with our "logo" on it. We appreciate her great service.
