Jaime was a great wedding planner for my daughter's wedding. From the first time that we met with her at the venue (Sandpiper Golf Club ~ Santa Barbara, Ca.) I had complete confidence that she could help us plan the wedding that my daughter was trying to create. My daughter is very detailed oriented and Jaime seemed to grasp what it was that we envisioned taking place to make her wedding special. While the planning went smoothly, Jaime was also great during and in the aftermath of the wedding. A quick and windy, slight rain storm threatened our all outdoor ceremony and reception which unnerved bride, wedding party and family ... but Jaime sprinted into action and sent her assistants for pashminas and umbrellas. Perhaps more importantly, Jaime assured us that she was monitoring the weather minute by minute with her husband (fire-fighter) and surfers who know the Santa Barbara weather well ! Jaime had a calm about her that allowed the parents of the bride to take a deep breath and believe her when she said that the bad weather would pass. Jaime was right and we had the most beautiful evening for the reception. I appreciate Jaime's competence and understanding of our vision for this wedding but just as important ~ I greatly appreciate her calm and re-assurance during a trying pre-wedding hour. Thank you Jaime for making this a dream come true wedding !

Jaime did a wonderful job as the coordinator for my wedding. She has many great contacts in town and when we were unable to find buses large enough in our budget for the transportation for our wedding, Jaime stepped in and was able to secure exactly what we needed. Jaime is very organized yet has a laid back attitude that helps to relieve typical bride wedding anxiety.

Our venue was basically a blank slate and Jaime was able to execute my vision perfectly the day of the wedding (which is a lot to say considering I am very Type A). No detail was forgotten. She had a great idea to use ghost chairs during the hora at sunset and they looked phenomenal in pictures. On the day of my wedding I was in a panic when it started drizzling at my completely outdoor venue but Jaime remained calm and handled the situation extremely well (ultimately the weather cleared up, thankfully!). Her assistants were also very helpful the day of the wedding, it is clear that Jaime has put together a wonderful team.

Wild Heart Events is the absolute best! We couldn't be happier with the way our wedding turned out. When I here a bride say that her wedding day is the best day of her life, I usually think she is full of it. The work that goes into planning a perfect day seems so stressful and exhausting, I couldn't imagine it coming together and being so wonderful. Jaime at Wild heart Events was the reason for all of it. From the first moment we spoke, I knew she was gonna make our big day exactly what we wanted and keep us within our limited budget. She had so many great ideas and guided us through from beginning to end. Never once making us feel anything but confident and assured. Every question was answered immediately and her attention to detail was impeccable. Jaime was so fun and easy to talk to, I actually miss her and our wedding meetings!
Our wedding day went off without a hitch and I can honestly say It was the best day of my life. Wild heart events and is the best and I would recommend them to anyone planning an event big or small, You won't find a better event team!
Thanks again!!!

If I could give Jaime and Wild Hearts Events 10 stars, I WOULD!!! Her professionalism and attention to detail was remarkable. She not only made planning a wedding fun, but took away the stress that a lot of my friends endured while planning their wedding. She was good about keeping me on track and making sure we kept to our timeline. Jaime is extremely organized, has great connections, and is fun to work with. She brought all of our ideas to life as well as made many of our wedding decorations herself. She was able to accommodate EVERY request we had. We felt confident and comfortable with Jaimie throughout the whole process. Wedding day was stress free and this was because Jaime took charge and had everything in control. My husband and I were able to relax, enjoy, and take everything in. Needless to say our wedding was a total hit!!! My guests are still talking about how wonderful our wedding was. I would 100% recommend Jaime and Wild Hearts Events. I can't thank her enough for everything she did and how special she made everything. THANK YOU:)

We cannot say enough good things about Jaime and her team at Wild Heart Events. Jaime really exceeded our expectations about what we thought a wedding coordinator would provide. She handled both the big things (making sure all the vendors were ready to deliver on the big day) and the small things (getting food and drinks for us as we got ready). At one point, I spilled a piece of food on my wedding dress and within literally 10 seconds, Jaime had a napkin and glass of water to get it out. Another nice thing that Jaime did, completely on her own, was to decorate our outside “s’more station” with cute a cute chalkboard and other decorations. Again, Jaime is fantastic. Hire her so you can enjoy your wedding!!

Jaime was absolutely amazing to work with. From the beginning steps to the end product, working with Jaime was an easy, stress-free process. We started planning while we were living in Santa Barbara, then an unexpected family illness forced us to move out of state. Jaime made the planning so easy from a distance!! She was always available when I had questions or concerns. She is detail oriented so everything was clearly laid out. I felt so comfortable leaving my wedding in her hands. She made sure I had nothing to worry about the day of the wedding--taking care of all the logistics, family members, and timing. I can not imagine a better experience than working with Jaime. She truly went above and beyond to make our special day spectacular. I would recommend Jaime a million times over!!!

Having Jaime Kostechko plan and coordinate our wedding was simply the best decision we made for our big day. She was extremely professional and easy to communicate with, even answering the smallest, silliest questions without making me feel crazy. Jaime has an eye for details and is the most creative person I have ever met. She really understood my vision for our wedding and helped me execute the DIY details from start to finish; also helping me with the flowers and ran our rehearsal. I was so extremely happily overwhelmed when, after my husband and I had done our first look, we arrived at our wedding to find Jaime had set everything up just as I had always imagined. Jaime really made my dreams come alive that day, and I highly recommend her to anyone who wants the job done perfectly.

There is no way I would give Wild Heart anything but a 5 out of 5. There is absolutely no way I could have done all the planning by myself! From they start they were very eager to help develop my ideas and vision, and it turned out so beautifully. They gave great recommendations for other vendors as well and kept everyone in the loop which made the whole day extremely well organized and not chaotic at all. I loved that they made a timeline of the day and gave it out to everyone involved; that gave me added security that there would be no huge mishaps!
I did not find out about this until later, but when the venue tried to put up some last minute, unsightly sound barriers over an area needed for seating, Jamie laid down the law and got them taken down. I don't know what we would have done otherwise, she is so awesome!
Overall it was a pleasure to work with Wild Heart Events. I never felt pressure to change my ideas, and everything was kept easy going but structured. They really made everything happen for us and I am so grateful we found them!

Amazing! I can't say enough. Hired on as our day-of coordinator for our wedding, Jaime definitely outdid herself. She was on it so quick that there were no issues, well, if there were I sure did not know about them! It was smooth sailing. She not only kept the wedding running smoothly, she also has an amazing knack of creativity! She help with last minute setups, made the boutonnières (that we almost forgot about), she helped make our wedding day exactly what we wished for! I would hire her for "life" if I could.
