Jaime is the best! She's responsive, so helpful, creative, will go to great lengths to help you find what you want. We had a private estate wedding at my grandparent's which could have been a disaster but her and her team helped us to accomplish a seamless wedding day. She was always around for us if we needed her but was never in the way. The vendors that she recommended honestly MADE the entire day - it was so special and everyone was so friendly and helped us to party just as much as we wanted. Would recommend using Wild Heart Events in a heartbeat!

Jaime is incredible and we will be forever grateful to her for helping make our wedding day exactly as we wanted it. My husband and I initially thought we could pull this off on our own, but Jaime navigated us through so much that looking back, we appreciate how invaluable her service was.

What I loved most was that Jaime brings calm to the planning process. If we weren’t sure about how to bring an idea to life or needed a vendor recommendation, she had plenty of suggestions. She is efficient and direct and didn’t mess around at crucial moments - like when we needed to say goodbye to one caterer and find another. Or…when the weather report suddenly changed and we were facing rain on our wedding day.

Jaime works magic. She kept the stress off our shoulders and coordinated with our vendors to re-create the reception inside. She is so darn talented that this turned out to be more beautiful and cozy than our original plan. She knew the vibe we wanted and kept that in mind throughout, even finding a way to keep our ceremony outdoors as we had dreamt it. She also blew us away when she pulled strings at the last moment to create an adorable space at the reception for my father-in-law who broke his ankle the week before.

We hired Jaime as our Month-of Coordinator but she was with us every step of the way from the beginning. Our wedding was a weekend affair and she helped us source decorations for the Friday night activities as well. We can't recommend Jaime highly enough. In the end, we feel so lucky to have had such an amazing person with us on our wedding day.

Jaime and her team helped me pull together a rustic ranch wedding in less than four months. We had to bring in everything... bathrooms, dumpster, lighting, generator, etc. and I would have been LOST without Wild Heart's help! I did not have a large budget but feel that the decision to hire a coordinator helped stretch every dollar that I spent. Creative ideas, unlimited phone support and guidance when I got stuck, contract negotiations, and flawless execution on the big day. I cannot recommend them highly enough!

Jaime did a great job to make our event run smoothly. Our wedding was a bit long and complicated, but Jaime handled it all incredibly. From the beginning, she was really helpful in getting us in touch with a wonderful team of vendors. She had a lot of wonderful ideas along the way to help, and I really appreciated her responsiveness and constant answering of questions along the way.

Jaime and the Wild Heart team literally created our wedding into a dream wedding!! The only negative feedback I have is that working with them is over!!

Our venue was complicated -- the Whispering Rose Ranch in Solvang, CA required that everything be brought in (bathrooms, electricity, kitchen, security, shuttles, etc etc etc) and Jaime didn't blink once, she was able to coordinate everything so perfectly that it appeared seamless. Knowing that she was in control, I was totally relaxed ( a first for me!). We hired Wild Heart for full services, beginning to end coordination and planning and we are so glad we did! We first sat down with Jaime and shared the millions of ideas that we had and she was able to streamline everything and put it all into a manageable format and then she went from there to create the most perfect day ever!

Anytime I had a concern, a freak out, worry, Jaime had already been on top of handling the issue. She was very careful not to include me in the last minute stress that comes with a wedding and even went as far as to tell other vendors to back off (professionally of course) so that I wasn't going to stress out. We had a couple hiccups the couple weeks before the wedding and Jaime was right on top of ironing out the kinks and making sure our vendors brought their A game. I honestly don't know what we would have done without her.

Finally, her creative vision is boundless!!!! Maybe it's because we had similar styles or maybe not but she created the most incredible details for the wedding and handcrafted so many things that really made the difference!! She was personally invested in making sure that all looked amazing and that all was exactly what I wanted. She would give me options on how to do certain things and also presented us with price options which was super cool. Even though she has a wedding (or two) every weekend, it felt like I was her only priority and that is SUPER rad!

JAIME IS THE BEST!!!!

Jaime and her team at Wild Heart are absolute rockstars! She coordinated both our rehearsal and wedding day and both could not have gone smoother! As a bride and somewhat of a perfectionist, I had complete piece of mind knowing Jaime was running the show. Her calm, organized, easy going attitude is something every girl needs on her wedding day! Her creative expertise and knowledge of the game is invaluable and she made things so effortless for myself, my husband and my family. The first meeting we had with her and my parents went flawlessly and ended with my mom hugging her and crying with joy over all of her help and guidance. This wonderful woman is an angel amongst this crazy, hectic industry and I am so lucky we snagged her to help make our day so special! All I can say is, if you're looking for a one of a kind coordinator who is sure to rock your day and your entire planning experience, Jaime is your girl!

Where do I begin with trying to accurately portray just how truly awesome....and gifted.....Jaime is as an event planner? Do I first highlight how she has an amazing attention to detail or do I first talk about how thorough and organized she is with her planning? Maybe I should start with how she always makes herself available by phone, text, email...or maybe talk about how quickly she always responded? Or should I first point out how carefully she listens to what you explain and how she's even more careful and exact in sifting through the millions of ideas being thrown around and is able to create a vision that is so far above and beyond what you could have imagined? She has an amazing ability of keeping order, keeping cool under pressure and helping reassure you that everything is under control....so maybe I should talk about that? Or perhaps, I'll talk about how amazing of a job she did with planning, coordination, communication and keeping all the wheels in motion that we had not one thing go wrong or left unplanned or unattended. I'm pretty sure we were the only wedding Jaime was planning for those 8 months...there is NO WAY she could have invested the time, attention to detail, been as responsive as she was, so on top of things and organized, so thorough and never able to drop the ball..not once....if she was having to deal with other events. But where should I begin..........I know!!!....I'll talk about the cool and detailed wedding day agenda she created, with all of my vendors contact information, setup and breakdown times and the detailed timeline she included in it....that was way cool!

Jaime - We feel so very blessed to have found you and to have worked with you on such an important and special event, that I could not imagine having gone through it with anyone else. Thank you for such an amazing experience, for making it easy and memorable and for just being a wonderful, wonderful person all around.

Jaime was even better than the glowing reviews I read about her suggested that she would be. We were planning a Santa Barbara wedding from the east coast and wanted to hire someone who could make things happen for us and would understand our style and priorities. Jaime delivered on that 100%.

Importantly for us, Jaime was incredibly responsive: she was always quick to answer emails, provide ideas, and send us suggestions for vendors. At the same time that she was working hard and getting things done, Jaime was amazingly calm and relaxed, which had a huge positive impact on the planning process. She was able to troubleshoot any issues/challenges that arose and keep our family informed and calm, all while taking on the brunt of the work.

The weekend itself was a huge success and we credit Jaime entirely with making it so smooth and enjoyable. I warmly recommend Jaime and Wild Heart Events!

Jaime and her team were amazing to work with in the planning and coordinator of our wedding. During our initial meeting in person, I felt like she took all our preferences and ideas and somehow molded them into one vision that actually made sense. She was there throughout the process to provide advice and make vendor referrals within our budget. Jaime and her team were able to produce design items for an incredibly reasonable prices. On the day of the event, she was calm and organized and we were able to just completely enjoy the event without any troubles or concerns. You can't go wrong with Wild Heart Events! I will be referring my friends to her when they are in need of a wedding coordinator! Thank you so much Jaime!
