So you just got engaged, and you're Yelping for a wedding planner...Call Swann Soirees now. It will be the best decision of your foreseeable future, and you're going to have a lot of decisions to make between now and when you say "I Do".

☆ EXPERIENCED ☆
Brenda and her team have worked at almost every venue and with almost every vendor in the area. They'll get a feel for your preferences and styles, and then provide you with a short list to choose from.

☆ PROFESSIONAL ☆
Responsive to emails and phone calls, considerate of issues that are important to one or both families, flexible enough to adapt and make your wedding day turn out the way you want it to be. They offer additional services like Workshops, Monthly Check-Ins, and a team of pros to answer any question any time.

☆ DAY OF BLISS ☆
On the day of your wedding there are a couple things on your mind, and you don't want one of those to be "has the caterer arrived....do they know where to put the reserved seating signs......does someone have an extension chord in case the band forgot theirs?". Brenda and her team take care of EVERYTHING - the vendors all know to direct all of their questions to her. This was the most valuable part of our experience, our entire wedding-day was 100% worry free...priceless.

☆ ADDED VALUE ☆
Swann Soirées paid for themselves by securing us discounted services and vendors, with the peace of mind that they had a proven track-record and could be trusted.

Beyond all of the above, Brenda is a smart, kind, affable person that cares about the people she's working with. It was an honor to have someone as genuine as her helping us plan our wedding.

Words cannot describe what an amazing job Brenda Swann and her staff did for my wedding. I interviewed over 10 wedding coordinators before finding Brenda. She fit my needs, my budget, and my wedding vision perfectly (or lack thereof)! She recommended amazing vendors who fit into our budget. She helped me figure out a wedding vision when one did not exist in my head.From the very beginning of signing Brenda on as a wedding vendor, I was at ease. Even my husband comment on how relaxed I was during the process. All attributed to Brenda! Planning a long distance wedding (we live in New Orleans and got married in San Diego) is stressful, complicated, and difficult; especially when both of you have full time jobs. Brenda and her staff sent me monthly to-do lists to keep me on target and not get overwhelmed. When we arrived in San Diego, a few days before the wedding, I handed all decor items over to Brenda and did not have any worry. All of the family kept commenting on how calm and relaxed I was. I had nothing to worry about because at the end of the day I was marrying the man of my dreams and I knew Brenda would make sure it was a fabulous day! She kept the wedding running smoothly and organized. She made sure we ate plenty of food, had plenty of beverages (even water!), and the next day we looked back and could recall the whole day/evening with complete happiness.
If you're deciding between having a wedding coordinator or not, definitely do and definitely hire Brenda Swann!

And my husband's and my favorite vender award for our 11/23/13 wedding goes to our coordinator Brenda Swann.We met with Brenda early in our wedding planning although myself being extremely Type A had already booked our venue, photographer, videographer, DJ and even bought my dress. Michael had came up with our "spanish" theme and we were going with it! It wasn't long though before us both working full time and planning our wedding full time everything just started weighing in on us. I realized that even I was in over my head and needed help! We interviewed several coordinators together and ho- hummed over the decision liking everyone but not " loving" them.... that is until we met B. I reached out to her and first appreciated the fact that she had flat rates ( none of this the more $$$ your wedding is, the more we are going to charge) and also that she was willing to meet us on a Sunday. We spent the afternoon comfortably opening up and chatting away with her, telling all about our wedding. As soon as we left Michael excitedly spun me around exclaiming , She is the One! I agreed. The ONE that quickly became our third party in all of the wedding decisions Big n Small. There was me, Michael and Brenda. Brenda helped us organize with her monthly emailed checklist but also was just a text or call away with anything that required further discussion. I loved her sass n make it happen attitude with the venders. She contributed so many wonderful creative ideas to our "spanish affair" theme. We had meetings periodically leading up to the ceremony of course too. What really shined through though was on our day of. Michael and I had the perfect wedding day and seriously just had a blast. Not once was I asked a question or even worried about anything. Seriously all of my parents friends (people in their 60s) and our other guests have raved how our wedding was hands down THE best they have ever attended.

WE LOVE BRENDA & TEAM!

She is now a great friend and while I could go on for that for DAYS, I know you'd rather hear about her as a planner. :) She is truly every bride to be's guardian angel. I was probably not always the easiest Bride but Brenda made everything so easy. I had about five different visions for my wedding during the planning process before I decided on the one we went with and she would happily roll with each new crazy idea I had. Not only would she welcome these ideas with open arms, she would come up with even better ideas that piggybacked on mine. It was like she knew what I wanted even though I didn't even know!

She helped us pick the most amazing officiant and florist as well. As our musician said shortly before the big day, "we had the Dream Team of vendors". I couldn't agree more. Not only was she a dream during the actual planning process, she was always so optimistic, bubbly, and perfect for what I needed as a stressed out bride to be. She kept me calm and always kept me grounded.

On the day of, my parents said it best. She made the day so flawless that they could both actually ENJOY the day and be in the moment of my wedding. We did not worry about a thing. She and her team did such a great job that in my admittedly biased opinion, I had a perfect wedding. I would not change a thing.

If you do one thing for yourself, hire Brenda & her team. You, your other half, and your family

My sweet sweet Brenda.... don't let that cute little exterior fool you. Brenda is one badass babe!! And that's exactly what I needed in a wedding coordinator.

I was planning my San Diego wedding from New York, so as you can imagine the 3,000 mile difference over 3 time zones did not make it easy. But Brenda and the entire Swann Soirees team did exactly that! They put up with me through several bridal meltdowns, a least 3 or 4 I'm changing everything emails, and countless Skype calls reassuring me that all would go according to plan.

Since I'm a Type A control freak, I was more than thrilled to have another Type A on my side!

Brenda always had great suggestions, had a perfect timeline that kept me right on track, and had some amazing referrals to other vendors all of whom I loved!

Day of, Brenda was my saving grace. Everyone was where they were supposed to be, on time, all deliveries were made, all items were in place, and everything went smoothly. How she put up with our crazy bridal party, I will never know LOL !!

Thank you so much Swann Soirees, for making my day flawless! I'm so happy I had your team in place so that my family and friends didn't need to stress any details, and we could all just enjoy the day! Love you! xoxoxo

I can say with confidence that Brenda and her team are not only experts in their field, but they are truly passionate and dedicated to the highest level of professionalism...and HAPPINESS! It is one thing to hire a firm to get something done on schedule and on budget...and quite another to get the bonus of a great personality and enthusiasm for going the extra mile. We purchased the package for a Bride who is mostly planning things on her own, and I couldn't have stayed on top of it and as organized as I was without Brenda's responsiveness, flexibility, and attention to detail. When my vendors bailed at the last minute, Brenda was there with her list of professionals and saved the day! When she came across a vendor who did not meet her expectations, she handled it with class and respect. When my family and I had ten million concerns on the big day, she was there with her warm, confident words to talk us off the cliff! My family is a group of outgoing, outspoken, lively, opinionated control freaks and Brenda was so respectful of us and our needs that I didn't have to worry about everyone bossing each other around...Brenda handled it, and handled it with grace! It was the most fun I have ever had. If you want to feel stress free and completely happy on the biggest day of your life, choose Swann Soirees.

We hired Swann Soirees about 10 months before our wedding and Brenda was absolutely fantastic! She not only helped with the design aspect of our wedding, but also helped me in finding the perfect vendors for our event. Over the long planning process, Brenda was always available to go to any and all appointments as needed and answer all of our questions. She always got straight to the point and kept it real which was exactly what I needed to keep me on track. She really helped me make the right decisions in regards to the most effective way to utilize our budget while not compromising the look and feel we wanted for our big day.

Brenda had so many ideas, great attention to detail and really put me at ease during the whole wedding process especially on the day of the wedding. The stress of a wedding can definitely get to you, but having Brenda by our side really made a world of difference in the stress department. My wedding turned out better than I could have ever imagined at the hands of Brenda. She kept all of our crazy bridal party in line, dealt with all issues that arose and really made it easy for us to truly enjoy the day -which is priceless. I can honestly say that my wedding day was stress free thanks to Brenda. We received so many compliments on our wedding and were just so happy to have had Brenda there to make it all happen.

I cannot say enough about Brenda and her Swann Squad!! They are true experts in their field and I love their work. I would definitely recommend Brenda and Swann Soirées for any upcoming event. They go over and beyond to produce fabulous weddings and I am extremely grateful for the great work they did for my wedding.

Swann Squad rocks! Love Brenda!!!

My current hubby and I had a previous wedding planner in mind and we were stuck on this idea but to make a long story short, we are happy that we met the better match for us with Brenda Swann! I don't remember how I stumbled upon Brenda's inspiration-boards-youtube-video but it was pretty awesome, and it's what convinced me that I would love for her to be my wedding planner! I know it's quite risky to base hiring practices on a video rather than personal references but it worked out! I wish I had hired her before picking our venue as she saved us money with our vendors. I found that vendors and venues are happier when they know that you have a planner as it makes everything run smoothier, especially ones who are well-known in the wedding business. Vendors gave us discounts knowing that we were working with Brenda. I highly recommend just hiring the Swann Squad from the get-go rather than the day-off for this very reason. We had one of Brenda's team member, Nicole, also on the big day and having both of them was incredible! I know that there must have been things that went wrong, but I am glad the squad took care of them as the day was perfect for my hubby and me! Thank you Swann Soirees for helping us have our dream wedding!

There is no way we can express in words how valuable Swann Soirees, primarily Brenda Swann, was in making our day more than we could ever imagine. We can honestly say choosing Swann Soirees was the best decision we made. We met her almost 2 years before our wedding day, and once we got a sense of Brenda’s upbeat and fun personality, we knew we wanted her as our coordinator. We also loved her wedding packages which are very different from other wedding planners we were researching. Brenda allowed us to express our personalities and choose our own wedding themes. She was able to provide her expertise over the whole course of our wedding planning experience via email, Skype and telephone. Brenda kept us on track by providing us a timeline and a list of recommended vendors that made wedding planning a breeze. Brenda met with us every few months to go over ideas and keep us organized. She gave her honest opinions on our ideas and encouraged our creativity. One of the best things about booking with Swann Soirees is all the fabulous vendors they work with. When we told them Brenda was our wedding coordinator, they gave us discounts that almost paid for her services. Brenda and her assistant Nicole were amazing on the wedding day. They took responsibility of all the decorations, so we didn’t have to haul anything to the venue. Brenda and my husband’s quick thinking and coolness under pressure turned an almost disastrous situation at the ceremony to one that went almost unnoticed by our guests. And how she got two 3-year-old firecrackers (our nephew and niece) to walk down the aisle together during the procession, we’ll never know. And speaking of firecrackers, she was able to make our day glow, literally, without breaking a sweat or pausing for a 3rd degree burn. Truly she was the best! Overall, we recommend Swann Soirees with our highest regard. Brenda was not only a great wedding planner, but she also cares about her brides and grooms like friends.

There is no way we can express in words how valuable Swann Soirees, primarily Brenda Swann, was in making our day more than we could ever imagine. We can honestly say choosing Swann Soirees was the best decision we made. We met her almost 2 years before our wedding day, and once we got a sense of Brenda’s upbeat and fun personality, we knew we wanted her as our coordinator. We also loved her wedding packages which are very different from other wedding planners we were researching. Brenda allowed us to express our personalities and choose our own wedding themes. She was able to provide her expertise over the whole course of our wedding planning experience via email, Skype and telephone. Brenda kept us on track by providing us a timeline and a list of recommended vendors that made wedding planning a breeze. Brenda met with us every few months to go over ideas and keep us organized. She gave her honest opinions on our ideas and encouraged our creativity. One of the best things about booking with Swann Soirees is all the fabulous vendors they work with. When we told them Brenda was our wedding coordinator, they gave us discounts that almost paid for her services. Brenda and her assistant Nicole were amazing on the wedding day. They took responsibility of all the decorations, so we didn’t have to haul anything to the venue.

Brenda and her team of wonderful helpers were amazing throughout the entire planning process, the big day, and even after our wedding. Initially, my wife and I had went with a wedding planner in Orange County who after many attempts just did not "get" us. To make a long story short we began looking for planners closer to home and stumbled upon Swann Soirees. I was not able to get ahold of Brenda on the first call, but she promptly returned my call within minutes (an initial indication of her team's responsiveness which was consistent throughout our planning process). As soon as we began speaking I felt very comfortable with Brenda and could tell that she was a good listener and genuinely cared to help my then fiance and I find the right fit. We soon met in person and my initial impression over the phone was confirmed, Brenda was great! From the get go you could tell that Brenda and her team enjoy what they do, listen to their clients, and support couples in so many ways. One thing I really appreciated about Swann Soirees is the fact that they never tried to make our wedding a cookie cutter event nor steered us towards particular vendors that they had relationships with. In other words, they were suggestive when they needed to be, but open for anything. Also, Brenda was always firm, but fair with vendors as she is very capable of making sure that the many vendors follow through on their contracts and always did so in a respectful and professional manner. Another really cool thing about our experience was the twice a month Bridal Noshes, where my wife and I would meet at their Liberty Station office for drinks, snacks, help with DYI projects, wedding ideas, etc. All in all Swann Soirees is a progressive company with fresh ideas, fair prices, and a genuine care to help couples plan their big day. We were so thankful to find Brenda and her lovely team and could not have had a better, more supportive, energetic, and fantastic team.
